    It’s really a shame that it seems that the role of the female companion kinda peaked at May and Dawn where they could be considered to be Ash’s equal in importance as well as action. Iris was also a battler but was basically a parallel to Misty in wanting to master Pokemon type, Serena took far...

    Plus when it really comes down to it, being a research fellow doesn’t necessarily mean that that’s her path as a trainer, it’s basically a subclass that allows her to travel the world and experience what it has to offer and in time find what it is that she wants to be. She’s not a researcher...

    While this is a joke, it’s kinda sad just how accurate this picture really is the last bit aside.

    I absolutely hated that the series director had gone with that concept as it really sucked a lot of the magic out of the series. I don‘t watch Pokémon to be reminded of the real world but instead for the high fantasy elements. Honestly, the only thing that really nailed such a concept in an...

    Though in that regard you can be different without kneecapping what is an essential pillar of the franchise as a whole. It ends up feeling like the writers conflate battle with being specifically an Ash thing and try too hard to be the antithesis of anything Ash when in reality it’s a franchise...

    Even so, even if you compare them based on similar time frames, there’s still much more personality to Ash’s Pikachu compared to Cap. And it kinda further becomes an issue if you consider that there’s a good chance that Horizons and its cast aren’t meant to last anywhere near as long as Ash and...

    Honestly when it comes down to it, Cap is pretty one-note. People seem to conflate the writers trying too hard to make Cap cool with him actually having personality when in really all he is is a single gimmick. Compare that to Ash’s Pikachu who had an entire range of personality that made him...

    Totally agree. Just looking back at older Pokémon openings and comparing them with Horizons, you can really feel that quite a bit of the spirit of Pokémon is missing. If Journeys was essentially making every adventure akin to a day trip then Horizons is basically akin to a school trip where...

    Because God forbid a character actually get to think for themselves in what is their own character episode especially when it comes to a solution that relies on their own area of expertise. Friede gets enough moments to show that he’s the leader within the main plot but the writers won’t even...

    I’d say the problem even in that was, it wasn’t even Orla’s idea to do so but Friede’s. Even in a scenario where another character solved a problem in a way that only they could, it was because Friede gave them the instruction to. They could have very well removed Friede from the occasion and...

    Seriously. It hasn’t learned a new move since episode 7 with Quick Attack. Meanwhile Fuecoco‘s learned both Stomping Tantrum and Flamethrower and Wattrel Spark since then.

    Controversial opinions

    It‘s a matter that, just as with Spinel, the writers placed them into a situation in which they could not prevail without, once again, having the pendant bring a Hero Pokémon in to help them like some cheap summon. Prior to this series where in all of Pokémon across its various medians, was the...

    It literally brought out Arboliva against Moltres.

    Problem there is that it seems like when the kids deal with something it’s not just that they get to deal with it and that be it. Against Spinel, they got to fight…until he then brought out Umbreon at which point Arboliva had to bail them out. They would deal with a hero Pokémon…but then the...

    Controversial opinions

    The way that I view that is that if it’s something that the adults or hero Pokémon had to bail them out of then the writers had no business putting them in that situation this early in the first place. It’s genuinely not compelling to watch the characters who are supposed to be the protagonists...

    I’d feel better about it if not for the restrictive and overall safe nature of it. Sure we traded out weekly adventure for more story based but in turn we lost characters feeling free and now have them feeling like they’re on a kiddie leash with no real stakes because of the presence of the...

    Care to give examples of how he gets bailed out all the time by others because that seems vastly over exaggerate. Also where is he “humiliated“ to make others look better? If you’re talking about his rivals, the entire point is having him face an opponent that’s a step ahead to build up to him...

    Gotta disagree that the Ash era messed it up. While Ash may not have gotten to be the champion until SM, as a 10 year old he alongside others in his age range traveled around the world completely independently with him even confronting and thwarting numerous evil organizations from Hoenn onwards...

    While I’ve seen people giving this praise all over, one thing I’m really not a fan of is the adult aspect of the cast. Whether it be Liko and Roy having to be chaperoned pretty much everywhere, having to be given basic tools for a trainer like pokeballs when catching a Pokémon because the...

    Controversial opinions

    Considering how much emphasis the writers placed on this being the path Liko has chosen, I don’t see them changing that. And while you say that this is preferable to getting a different flavor of Ash, that’s like saying that every character in anime who take similar roles are super similar...
