Simplified designs are easier to animate, and the series has had some good animation, but it's either wasted on slapstick or background events involving the pokemon while the human characters are stuck with 2-5 frames of animationWhy DID the Sun and Moon series have that animation style, anyway? Did the usual animator need a break?
even so; personally for me; It's still not anywhere near as enjoyable as the animation for Pokemon the series: XY; And Pokemon the Movie: I Choose you(which THANKFULLY Returns to the artstyle similar to Pokemon the series: XY) And Pokemon's not supposed to look like One Piece, they're not the same show; h3ck, they're not even the same TYPE of show!!Simplified designs are easier to animate, and the series has had some good animation, but it's either wasted on slapstick or background events involving the pokemon while the human characters are stuck with 2-5 frames of animation
So, either Grookey or Sobble then.The girl usually gets the cutest or most feminine starter:
May: Torchic (she could have gotten Mudkip too, but Torchic matches May's color scheme and Blaziken is always associated with her), Treecko is always associated with Brendan/Ash or Shota as the male pokemon
Dawn: Piplup, obviously the cutest of the 3 in DP and why it didn't evolve
Serena: Fennekin, it's a feminine fox especially it's evolution as Braixen.
Lana: Popplio because of course it's evolutions are so feminine
Other girls like Lillie with Vulpix, Mallow with Tsareena, Iris starting with Axew, or Misty with Psyduck/Togepi also have the obvious cute/feminine main pokemon relation even if they're not starters.
Knowing how stereotypical the anime is, the next female companion will also probably have only cute or feminine pokemon.
Gladion is certified with the ''Paul Approved Pathetic!'' stamp lolThis is just me but Grookey seems like a very "Ash" Pokemon, but who knows, I'm just guessing for now. As far as the rival goes, I think it be cool if they went somewhere along the lines of the Diamond & Pearl route again where the rival is an experienced trainer with a fully evolved starter by the time they meet Ash, like Paul was. I also hope the rival makes more appearances throughout this next series; I actually like Gladion in the anime, but he doesn't appear often enough unfortunately.
He also did the same when taunting some Pokemon Poachers at the Orange League where Lapras was reunited with it's parents and family.I can’t remember where the twerking was, but I do remember them showing off Ash wiggling his butt during the episode where he caught Rockruff.
What do these themes even mean? Apart from starters and companions, which don't apply to SM at all. Is 3.5 just an arbitrary way of saying "this doesn't count"?Gen 5 (Gen 2 Theme)
Gen 6 with Gen 3 Remake (Gen 3 Theme)
Gen 7 with Second Gen 1 Remake (Gen 3.5 Theme)
Gen 8 with Gen 4 Remake (Gen 4 Theme)
I said Gen 3.5 to means between Gen 3 and Gen 4. Around ''Advanced Battle'' and ''Battle Frontier'' level in the anime. FireRed, LeafGreen and Emerald with Games.What do these themes even mean? Apart from starters and companions, which don't apply to SM at all. Is 3.5 just an arbitrary way of saying "this doesn't count"?
Probably Gold and Silver for 4.5 Gen. I'm saying this because of the second Gen 1 remake and Emerald (Zygarde) with Sun and Moon being similar to the Gen 1 Remake for Ruby and Sapphire.Okay, but how is SM comparable to the Battle Frontier saga? Surely the Orange Islands are a better comparison?
Also, what would "4.5" be? The short HGSS arc that wasn't all that special?
I'm guessing you haven't watched SuMo before? It's full of try-hard, unfunny moments and yes, Ash shook his money maker at the audience in twerk-like fashion before in a certain episode that I try to forget. My whole point was that I just hope SS can find a way to not go overboard on silly, memetic humor.
