    Go: Ash, let me remind you of how you really are by perfectly copying a move that I’ve never seen before and in spite of me not even being a battler. Seriously, what were the writers thinking? If they wanted someone to break Ash out of his funk any of Ash’s trainer companions would have been a...

    In concept, sure. In execution, it’s been terrible. Between far too many 1v1 battles, inconsistencies (like why was there a random 1v1 in the Hyper class? Why did we start the Normal class with 2v2 only for the majority to be 1v1 aside from Korrina at the end? How does Ash’s rank shoot far past...

    Yea I’m pretty sure that’s the lore of the game that they were brought there by Hoopa from different points in time as well as dimensions, hence how characters like Lyra and Crystal can exist at the same time as well as why Red and Blue are teens despite the Alola cast being there.

    I dunno. Sure Cinderace has been consistently around but I can’t really say it’s done anything particularly impressive since the end of the Darkest Day arc. With Go it doesn’t really get to do much and the rare times it actually gets action, it’s usually against things that outclass it like...

    The funny thing is, the one time he did attempt it way back when Metapod was being carried away by Beedrill, he failed miserably. Dude probably gets wartime flashbacks to that every time his Pokémon is in trouble and is like “I can do better than a pokeball. Ash leap go!”

    When it comes to girls in anime, they always come with access to hammer space.

    The instant that Koharu heard that Dawn was in trouble after Piplup was taken she chose to go with Ash and Go to Sinnoh to help her. Plus, Dawn was the original one to introduce her to Contests, something that narratively paid off when she met Serena. Even the opening acknowledges that a dynamic...

    In the few episodes that Koharu has spent with Dawn and Serena, I find that she has a better dynamic and more believable friendship with them than Go who is supposed to be her childhood friend.

    I don’t think it’s ever been used as a term of endearment especially since the term shill is always used insultingly. It’s basically a term that those who don’t like the Pokémon’s popularity and favoritism it gets as a result use to insult them and always has been.

    Personally, I’m okay with Serena being the one who shows her about Contests since it’s basically the intersection of 3 plot points: Koharu being introduced to world of Contests, Koharu meeting all the Eeveelutions and what Serena has learned since she left for Hoenn to try Contests. These...

    It’s not fair. Why couldn’t we have gotten this instead?

    And let’s not even mention how, in spite of basically doing just the equivalent of being a zoo keeper, he’s just given free evolutions. Kid’s the character equivalent of leaving things on autopilot.

    And occur it did. Really all adding Koharu did was lessen it a bit especially with how much they half-ass it by having her in the group once in a blue moon.

    I blame the fact that somewhere between the development of SM and Journeys some genius decided that Pokémon is a boys only club and that they would only include a girl again if it was only on a part-time basis. As such, they can dedicate time to things like 2-in-1 episode, Slowking fillers and...

    If there absolutely has to be a fall guy at least have the decency to not make it the same Pokémon over and over again. That’s how we ended up with the Torterra situation in Sinno.

    I wouldn’t say that Inteleon took the spot this generation. If you look at their popularity, both Cinderace and Inteleon are exceptionally popular (then it kinda falls off a cliff with Rillaboom). It seems that they weren’t prepared for just how popular Inteleon would be to the degree of...

    Journeys is basically like a mirage; it can look nice, maybe even great from a distance but get up close and the entire illusion falls apart to reveal just how empty it really is. Changes that have been made that break tradition are basically changes just for the sake of changes rather than...

    Honestly it ends up being a bigger missed opportunity that Ash didn’t capture Fearow despite trying to back when Pidgeotto evolved. Had he given it another try after Pidgeot weakened it rather than just giving up after one attempt, Fearow would have ended up with a better showing. Being Ash’s...

    Agreed. Hell, it’s not even one I’d even put on the level of other unevolved starters with impressive feats. It might as well just be Captain Plot Armor considering the ridiculous things it pulled off by somehow using Feather Dance as a Substitution Jutsu like it just stepped out of Naruto. I...

    While I’ll agree that the final year was much better than the rest, I hated the monkey’s paw we got in that the league finally got a proper arc dedicated to it fitting a league at the cost of it being the easiest league in history filled to the brim with people who had no business competing in a...
