    I know those can't be argued as official, canonical captures as those were just created as an "what-if" fanart series by a guy who just happened to have worked on the anime, but this is actualy why I liked those arts imagining Paul's teams across regions. (The ones somebody posted here a few...

    I think it's because moral/ethical issues require a lot of nuance that needs to be very well thought out, especially for a kiddie show like Pokémon, even more when you take into account that the show has never really approached the "grey area" too much. Morality issues were never something the...

    It's gonna be incredible if they do all of this just because they refuse to have Ash use his reserves in the PWC. You see, a point that I think we need to understand here is cuz the ultimate thing about Alain is that a rematch against him doesn't works unless Greninja is there. Greninja/Zard X...

    Here's the thing: you make a goal where Ash can challenge pretty much anybody without being region-locked. You go and then bring back Alain, the one rival Ash was never able to defeat. You put both of them in the exact same group in which they have the possibility of battling each other. What...

    Yes, that's exactly it! I do plan on writing a bit about it when college alleviates the pressure on my neck a bit lol, but yeah, hype culture unfortunately made it's way into the Pokémon franchise, but well, considering it's the largest ip in the world, it was bound to happen. It gotta keep up...

    Well, I can see our opinions really difer here because I personaly think JN's writing is absolutely dogshit atrocious at it's worst and barely average at it's best lol. I always felt like one of JN's biggest problems (if not, the biggest issue) is because it's the direct result of the "Hype...

    Again, I'm also 99,999% it will happen, but well,,, let's be real, the JN writing team sucks enough to do something like this. To reiterate: I'm not claiming that they will pull this bs, but their credibility ran out very quickly because of all the shit they pulled. So really, I'm not the one to...

    For the record, I do see Ash in the finals against Leon, but imagine if they pullled the rug on us at the last second and Ash loses against Cynthia in the semi-finals and doesn't gets to the finals. Again, I don't see this happening (even if I'm not quite 100% sure), but JN has done so many...

    I love just how unique and fun these evolutions look. . Idk, there's something so fulfilling in seeing evolutions being trated as an actual biological process and opposed to some form of "magic" it was always treated as. I don't want this to seem like another dunk on JN, but it just reminds me...

    If it were by me, Ash would only have Pikachu, a Rillaboom, and perhaps another Galar mon (Say, something like a Dragapult, a Hatterene, etc) as the main stays of the team and the other 3 slots would be of his reserves being swapped out and about. I both think it's the perfect set up to have...

    The ultimate problem with Iris being a Champion is because they did it so they would match with her B2W2 game version. The problem being that Game!Iris becoming Champion in the sequel actually makes sense as opposed to Anime!Iris becoming one. In the games, Iris is already presented to us as a...

    I'm not ashamed to say that was the episode that made me start to actively dislike Goh. It's just a little taste test to showcase how they try as hard as they can to sell Goh as this sort of "amazing trainer" and how desesperate they are to also sell him as "Ash's equal".

    I'll never get tired of talking about how bad this losing streak was. I think they decided to add in so the PWC seems "deeper", or "more difficult" than it actually was, and wasn't done well at all. I mean, it gave us JN036, one of the biggest dogshit disgraces in modern age Pokémon when it...

    So it works then. 3 full battles for Ash in the Masters 8, if they go in with a single-elimination approach. If there's anytime to go with full battles that go off the budget, it's now.

    Controversial opinions

    I get your point, but we're talking about battles against the literal strongest trainers in the world, and the highest stakes Ash has ever faced. 6x6 battles with excelent, top-tier animation are the bare minimum, at least to me, personally. Of course it's JN so we all should keep out...

    I hope that the Master 8 battles won't be 3x3, but it seems like it, unfortunately. I'm sorry, but the idea of a battle between Champions having anything less than a full 6x6 does not sits right with me. I know it's still up in the air atm, but I hope I'm wrong and we have full battles that...

    The Bea thing really sucks because when she was announced and they made it clear that she and Ash would have a rivalry, I got really happy because , to me, it meant Ash was finally gonna have a female rival who is actually a threat to him. But of course, in true JN fashion, it was a "rivalry"...

    I know this post is a bit old, but I just realized what's the thing that was bothering me when it came to the bottom pic was They almost never complete the mouth line and always looks weird. There's some stuff that only works in way cartoonier styles, it seems. Besides, the "static doll eyes"...

    I still think they had her evolve earlier than that ep both because Tsareena is fairly popular but also because the "Look how much you've grown" line wouldn't have hit as hard, especially as we find out Bounsweet was Mallow's mon last gift to her before her death. Bounsweet being fully evolved...

    I feel like I might need to expand on this eventually, but as I don't have the sufficient brainpower needed to do so rn (lol), I will only say this now: it's really upsetting to me how Goh could've been a way better character if he was written as an aspiring Pokémon Professor as opposed to the...
