    I don't think that those three bullet points having anything to do with race to be honest. Everyone is different and I feel like they did something different with a character in the anime and Iris just happened not to be white.

    I love Piplup tbh. I think that it had a really good personality and it had amazing character development especially as it was the Pokemon of a secondary character. I think, personally, it was a good decision that it stayed as a Piplup. I don't think Prinplup or Empoleon match Dawn's...

    I think at the start the writers thought it would be funny if a talking Meowth was in charge haha

    I think that it would be a shame for the TRio to split. Jessie has an outgoing and loud personality and that compliments James' personality well as he is sometimes reserved and thoughtful but Jessie can help him out of his shell. Meowth is really funny and has a dry sense of humour which makes...

    I think it was fine if Ash was a novice from the start. That is how it was meant to be. Trainers are meant to start an adventure and discover the world for themselves. The anime always comments on how you should keep getting back up if you fail. It was the anime's intention of making Ash a...

    I’m not sure if Ash will get a fairy type. I think that the anime writers normally try to give Ash really popular Pokémon in a region. Out of a lot of Pokémon, fairy Pokémon aren’t that high up (even though I love them, it’s the truth). But they haven’t given Ash some other types so I don’t know...

    I agree with you on the black uniforms but I love the Bewear gag and it’s the best thing about the anime in my opinion. It’s never going to get old for me as you don’t know what kind of an entrance it will make haha.

    That’s really surprising. I’ve never met someone that doesn’t hate a Pokemon.

    Controversial opinions

    I agree with you but what I was talking about was that there are things that are already proven that can be portrayed wrong in the anime.

    Controversial opinions

    I totally agree. My friend and I took High school physics when the movie came out and we were laughing at how wrong it was. But I think they did it very well considering that they got it wrong because they need it to fit the story and sometimes it can be very complex. That’s why I wasn’t too...

    The Rise of Darkrai is my favourite movie too! I really liked Sinnoh and this movie had a really good plotline. It wasn't cringey and there was an ordered plot with good character development. The music was a really big part of it and I like how they weaved it into the story.

    Controversial opinions

    From the start, this thread has been used to discuss controversial opinions and it is good to have a conversation about controversial opinions because it sparks a discussion and perhaps makes others look at aspects of the anime in a different way. /late but I really like Z-Moves and I prefer...

    I wasn't sure about Misty having Togepi initially either but the whole evolution scene etc was really heartbreaking for me because Misty showed raw emotion and love for her Togepi. Sure she loves Water Pokemon but this was emotional and I think this is more emotional than Ash's Butterfree leaving.

    I really liked the Ash vs Harrison battle. Harrison was a really good opponent for Ash and it made Ash adapt which is always good for character development when battling. Harrison was a worthy winner tbh. I felt as though Tyson won against Ash because of Meowth and its Thunderbolt. I don't...

    My view about overpowered trainers is generally negative such as Tobias. However, Alain trained a lot for the League and he had the passion required to do so. I was fine with Ash losing because in XY, I found Ash annoying as he seemed very overconfident and hardly trained as he was very...

    And in addition to this point, Mewtwo doesn't want the trainer connection anyway so it should be plausible. Also, rage normally does make you stronger in the anime. I just feel like Ash-Greninja was hyped up in the anime too much. Mewtwo can mega evolve before Greninja can turn into...

    Controversial opinions

    Whilst, I agree that Mewtwo can overpower Greninja because it is a Greninja, who is going to mega evolve a Mewtwo? Mega Evolution is a bond between trainer and Pokemon. Further to that, Mewtwo doesn't like humans.

    Controversial opinions

    I don't think that Ash's Greninja can rival a Mewtwo even if it's "special". The writers have always made Legendary Pokemon very powerful and often invincible in the manga and anime.

    I think it's in Mimikyu's nature not to let go of its hatred of Pikachu. It will always hate Pikachu and that is what is so unique and cool about its personality.

    Controversial opinions

    I agree with you there but I think the Pokedex's explanation in the anime suffices. I think that there just needs to be more battles between them.
