    Because it just seems like the animators are too lazy to animate any Pokémon besides those aces.

    I still think that's stupid and lazy. It's especially dumb since there's a good chance Ash won't even FIGHT Cynthia, Steven or Lance.

    Again, I haven't seen the episode yet and I just think it would been more meaningful if Paul fought Ash with the first team he saw him use. Not to mention it would likely show Torterra in a good light.

    Controversial opinions

    Anyone else hate the team Paul used against Ash?? What's worse is he uses the aces of Cynthia, Lance and Steven so he just comes across as a copycat. I was hoping his Ursaring somehow evolved, giving us a glimpse of Hisuii Pokémon in the present, so it ties in with the Spanish region having...

    I also don't like how Ultra and Master classes are the same. At least in Normal and Great classes you use a different amount of Pokémon.

    He's fighting Iris OR Alain, not both.

    Controversial opinions

    I hate how the PWC is laid out. Why is Ash going against Lance? It would have been more interesting if Lance and Iris; two Dragon trainers fought, since Iris wants to be the BEST Dragon trainer. Why is she fighting Alain at all? "OH BUT HE HAS A CHARIZARD" yeah, ONE Dragon type that he may not...

    I know, I just want to see Leafeon again. :( Virgil's Leafeon never even got to fight. Additionally, Leafeon is the Eeveelution to appear the least in the anime.

    He won a league, so that gives him reason enough. Additionally, he could have the Eevee Z-Move, which would give reason for the "Only one Mega/Z-Move/GMax allowed" thing, since I doubt anyone in the PWC will even USE a Z-Move. It could also tie up Chloe's arc by having an Eevee expert work out...

    Controversial opinions

    I wish we saw more Galarian GLs and ANY of the DLC cast. What's the point of a spin-off anime like Twilight Wings if they're non-canon? They add nothing and only take away from what could have happened in the main anime. As for PWC, some of the Champions are so lackluster. I don't get why...

    Honestly, Goh would have been better off in Pokémon Origins, since Pokémon are treated more like animals in that and it's expected to capture all Pokémon without caring much for them.

    Controversial opinions

    Snivy also kept the same four moves for the entirety of the series. The writers clearly didn't know which of Ash's Pokémon to prioritise so they ended up shafting all but three: Pikachu, Pignite and Krookodile.

    Controversial opinions

    Wait, but then doesn't that mean Masters takes place before GSC/HGSS or did Gold/Ethan fail to beat Red? That's an anticlimactic way to end the game...

    Controversial opinions

    I don't know if it was a mandate or what. Maybe some executive who hated SM wanted the anime to be more like the games. Could also explain why Galar is seen so little of, because there isn't much to do there but do the Gym challenge. Still doesn't explain the lack of DLC areas though.

    Controversial opinions

    I mean the IoA DLC content could have been added to the anime once Gloria had about 3 badges and since they don't need to reveal who's a Gym Leader right away, they could have had an IoA arc that lasted for 8 episodes that revealed the two minor league Gym Leaders there. The CT DLC could have...

    I just mean that it has tiny feet and can't use the wings much since they're stuck out. That would make for a terrible dancer, even if their attacks are graceful.

    Controversial opinions

    Maybe the change of contests not having a battling phase made it harder for Dawn to get wins. Bulky Pokémon Togekiss and Mamoswine aren't very graceful so they were pretty much only useful for the battle phase.

    Controversial opinions

    What makes it worse is when there SHOULD be a conflict because a certain someone won't stop being a nuisance and everyone acts like it's some funny gag or ignores it. Jeeze, has everyone been lobotomised or what?

    IMO, Sirfetch'd should have had this moveset against Drasna: Night Slash Detect Fury Cutter Meteor Assault I'd keep Night Slash over Brutal Swing because it goes against the sword and shield theme. Detect could be used to parry against opponents and counter them with Night Slash (or whatever's...

    Controversial opinions

    SM felt lost the whole time. Should Ash do trials? Should Ash collect Z-Crystals? Should his friends be developed instead? Should Ash be a moron? Should the show have sexist stereotypes? Should Ash's friends who were trial captains in the anime aim for that goal? Should Ash and co. do special...
