    Yes I've seen the episode, I've already addressed that very point, the episode was very much a joke, the catching was mostly by accident, the ease of catches was due to the Safari Zone, and the Tauros life is almost identical to before as Oak's Ranch is a vast area with tons of nature and plenty...

    Or you could try and read the words of the people who complain about Go's captures because it has nothing at all to do with Ash. If you're going to make comments calling out other people and their opinions, try actually giving a basis for what you're saying. What makes Go any different from...

    Go is a far worse person than Paul (at least so far). This is my opinion, but I'm going to give reasons to defend it, and hopefully the story will improve to help change this, because it would be pretty rough at this rate to have a protag (and seemingly the only protag) for as many as three...

    Not to defend Torkoal, as it rarely did well, but its battle against Brandon's Registeel was actually really good, and that was its most recent battle as of the Sinnoh League. That was battle experience against a legendary Pokemon, so maybe experience is a factor. It lasted a while in the...

    I think a lot of people will hate me saying this (hence the location of the post), but all the whining about trio absences is starting to get pretty annoying. I would certainly also like to see more of the trio, but seriously, most of us lost our favorite characters years ago. I could whine and...

    Yes, I would have guessed he's pretty close to 20, do you see him more as Brock's age? Either way, he's clearly quite a bit older than Ash, and he was visually a lot younger when he got his Charmander, so he had been training a long time. The point stands either way, I don't intend to argue...

    Controversial opinions

    In hindsight maybe it may seem people would have been less upset about the match getting interrupted, but really people would have gone nuts if the Kalos League Finals never had a result. It would have been different backlash, but still negative backlash. It would be impossible to measure which...

    I'm not quite finished playing Shield yet, but I am far enough to have started to feel sad that the Galar region isn't going to be explored at the level of detail of other regions. Although I have always maintained that I would prefer the anime to go back to the Gen 1-6 formula, putting that...

    On top of all this, it felt to me like it was kind of cheating too. The classmates and those they are friends with didn't attack each other at all, when the battle is supposed to be a free-for-all. On top of that, they also would cut in and help out when someone else was attacking one of their...

    I can tell you that I don't really like it much, but I do think it is better than SM. I still prefer every other pre SM series over what we have seen so far. Saying the same thing over and over again doesn't make it true (you've seriously said that like 3 times in the past week). That may be...

    I feel weird talking about the same thing I've said before, but the same topics seem to come up frequently here. Although I find this chart really interesting (props to whomever took all that time) it really shouldn't be used as the main piece of evidence when trying to determine which Pokemon...

    I don't think there should be an impossible barrier, I just don't think Ash should have won any of the regional leagues, that had sometimes hundreds of incredibly talented trainers. If they would have just started with him doing a little worse, but still showing it as a great accomplishment...

    Controversial opinions

    I never wanted Ash to win any league. I think most people seem to want him to win, but I really like the concept that its a huge world and there is always someone better. I may not always approve of how he has lost previous leagues, but I never wanted him to actually win one (and no its not...

    SM is the least funny/humorous series by a significant margin. Note which thread I said this under, this is my opinion, and I do believe that humor, like art, is subjective, even though many people on this site seem to think those qualities are objective, so I don't reject that some people will...

    I wasn't trying to say don't discuss it (I love when contests come up in topics because they were one of my favorite things), sorry if it came across that way, all I'm saying is the more logic we apply to contests, the less satisfying they may feel because there are a lot of holes logically with...

    I actually did a long blog post on this a few years ago, since blogs were deleted, but I still have saved the post, I will put it here as my input on this topic, because I totally agree its really crazy Keep in mind that the gifting ribbons is somewhat contradicted, because in Hoenn when...

    Since everyone is talking about the Tapu Fini mist episode, I wanted to mention something about it too. I will start by saying for SM standards it was a quite good episode, but I was really bothered by one aspect. Although I knew it wasn't going to happen, when Ash was lost in the mist I really...

    I think you aren't picking up on the counter part of counter shield. You say yourself "without hitting the opponent", that is just deflecting or blocking a move. By your definition every time Pikachu uses Iron tail to knock down some opponents attack without taking any damage that is a counter...

    It's not really a big deal, but I just can't agree that it was counter shield. The gyro ball was a completely normal gyro ball, just used to deflect a move. Its like using water gun to deflect flamethrower, a steel type move to neutralize an ice type move. We have seen countless examples of one...

    Controversial opinions

    Did they actually refer to that as counter shield in the original, because Brock just made a vague reference to thinking outside the box in dub. I find it pretty annoying that its been touted as a reference to counter shield because it wasn't really like counter shield at all, it was much more...
