    Lord almighty, it's taken me, like, a full month to catch up with all the crap posted in this thread. (@Champion Cynthia I'm very impressed in particular with your dedication to the cause - you made tables and everything!! I can't say I agree with a single thing in those tables, but a little...

    He tweets a lot of crap, very frequently, but I find the description of it being 'free flowing and relaxed' is interesting - it is certainly at odds with the popular fan idea that we'll head back to something as 'on' (& stiff) as XY's animation style. What will actually transpire remains to be...

    I'm not commenting on the cause but the effect. Frankly, the original thinking behind these examples is both irrelevant and something that we'll never know. The idea that something needs to have intention to offend in order to be called racist is a fallacy. It's like saying that harassment only...

    What’s not to love about a nice racist stereotype! From Rougela/Jynx till the most recent blackface scandal, Pokemon has always taken such a nuanced and sensitive approach to black people after all.

    I don’t think Nessa’s design is as bad as Olivia’s (there is simply no justifying that outfit), but she is wearing far less than most women would wear in most settings (especially in the UK where it’s mostly cold most of the year). It is certainly possible to design a sporty and unique looking...

    And? Donkey Kong is a creation of Shigeru Miyamoto you know!

    Pokémon Sword and Shield anime speculation thread

    The earlier heated discussion is why I hate Rurina/Nessa’s design: why do women of colour always gotta have a super sexualised design, which serve only to perpetuate the fetishisation of real-life WOC? Lychee/Olivia has the same issue. This is what I liked about Iris’ design - she was fully...

    Well it honestly does seem iffy that a calendar for the first full year of Gen XIII features practically no Galar Pokemon. It’s also only July. Do we normally get calendar leaks this early?!

    Boy am I glad to see Nyasu in a prominent position in that second picture!!

    Ooooh yes please! An open acknowledgement of his past successes would be a wonderful bone to throw us elderly fans and also immediately staunch the inevitable ‘new canon’ arguments!

    Think what you want, but if Satoshi wins the Alola League (which he may very well do), he is going to Galar regardless of previously established 'rules'.

    To give their credit, they didn't do a bad job with introducing some visual variety in SM - Kaki and Mao are POC, Maamane is the first 'fat' main character we've ever had and Suiren certainly doesn't follow the stereotypical anime waifu design the producers have seemed to be so fond of. I hope...

    Perhaps it was unfair to single that post out. But there have been some posts (not just by you) with inference or outright stating that this character (or others actually) are not conventionally attractive enough to make it as main characters. Maybe, unfortunately, that is true. I live in hope...

    Honestly, I’m starting to find this kind of language really irritating. I’m sure everyone understood your original point about Hidaka’s misogynistic comment from 10 years ago, but there’s no reason we as a community need to talk in a way that propagates that as valid. I also believe that even...

    Bloody hell no wonder they didn’t have time or cartridge space to include the whole dex when they’ve got these new age mega evolutions to cram in! The new gym leaders both look fun and far more age appropriate to be companions.

    I was thinking today that I hope we get to keep a similar flavour of post episode segment in SwSh, the PokeProblem end clips have been so fun!
