I actually really loved XY. Probably one of my favorite series.
I never liked the green monkey line.
Jukain is one of the strongest Pokemon Satoshi has, agreed it neeeded more focus to be the Ace but I felt that was due to Oosubame receiving a fair share of it. And then Battle Frontier introduced rotation.
You mean the Sceptile that beat a Darkrai only because 4 Pokemon beforehand weakened it?
Personally, I love XY. It's my favorite series, but I absolutely cannot STAND the fact that I cannot express even the slightest criticism towards it pretty much anywhere without getting attacked, hence why I took my complaints here
SAME. I didn’t know XY is so hated, it’s legit the most popular series ever and was extremely popular during its run. I love XY way more than any other series combined.
XY>every other series combined
If I remember correctly it was 3 Pokemons Actually Torkoal, Gible and Heracross, btw the last time I checked Torkoal couldn't do anything towards Darkrai and got knocked out with one Dark Pulse, Heracross did a pretty good job against Darkrai but getting hit by Dream Eater probably restored most of the Darkrai's energy, so yeah I don't want to sound like giving Sceptile too much Credit but I think it deserved to have that win.
(Maybe Heracross didn't manage to took out Darkrai but it still showed that it's a good fighter If you ask me)
An actual controversial opinion: XY(Z), let alone overrated, receives a ton of weird vitriol/hate towards it in these forums. There are a thousand posts talking about how hating XY is a controversial opinion, but in reality, most of this forum seems to hate it.

The pokemon fandom in general is very weird. I left a different fandom because of its toxicity but then I come across the "us vs them" arguments in regards to XY which just always manages to make me mad. Not specifically on these forums, per se, but in general. I've yet to have a single positive interaction with an XY fan, which is...weird to say the least. It's hard to enjoy a series you like when the fans give it a negative reputation.
AnimeJewel246 said:As for something controversial, Journeys is getting absolutely excessive amounts of hate at this point. It's honestly kind of ridiculous, which I'd never thought I'd say because the only things I've had to say positive towards the series were for the two recent episodes and that's it. I still stand with my criticisms towards the series but at some point the constant debates start to get annoying since they never really actually go anywhere. Like I said, I have critisims towards the series as well, but I'm beginning to lay off on expressing some of it because the negativity is getting to me.
