This is what I'm gonna do. I can't stand to binge watch things, and I've always looked forward to having a new episode of Pokemon to watch each Saturday as well. It just kind of sucks because I know I'll be temped to watch each one with them sitting there (not in one day, more like one episode a day) but I'm gonna have to restrain myself because then I know I won't be happy waiting months for the next episodes to come out.I might just watch one new episode a week to keep up that kind of Saturday morning routine, if only because I'm that sentimental. I just like that despite how everything has changed over the years for me, I can still watch new Pokemon episodes on Saturday mornings.
Worth pointing out that in Spain there will be some stuff that will be sub-only for the time being though some stuff even in English are somewhat affected.There is no spanish dub for now due to the freaking COVID
I'm from the UK actually. I only found out about the whole Spain dub scenario because I came across a news page where Netflix says they will be suspending dub production (as far as Spain is concerned) though I now can not find it for the life of me.Are you from spain @RetroPokeFan ?
Buy a chromecast and you can stream to your TVWell it did happen and I am disappointed. I really thought that Disney XD was a good place for the series and they treated the anime far in a way better than Cartoon Network did. Plus, they still promote the series' reruns and have episodes On Demand lasting until October, so I was positive that they'd keep it for the next series. Netflix is possibly more widely available in different homes than Disney XD is, so I'm sure that is an advantage for TPCI. I'm also not a big fan of releasing episodes in chucks. Twelve episodes every three months isn't too much, but Pokemon just isn't really designed to be binged watched like that. Given that the Japanese version is on hiatus right now, I do wonder what they'll do for the second batch of releases, although hopefully the situation will be easier in Japan and in the rest of the world by that point.
I'm also not thrilled with basically having to pay for another streaming service. I probably would have been more fine with Disney+ instead, but I guess Netflix needed some title to attract more kids to their platform. It's also kind of a shame that I'll have to watch new episodes only on my laptop. I like waking up on Saturday mornings to new episodes of Pokemon. I might be too sentimental, but it just feels comforting to me. I might just watch one new episode a week to keep up that kind of Saturday morning routine, if only because I'm that sentimental. I just like that despite how everything has changed over the years for me, I can still watch new Pokemon episodes on Saturday mornings. I don't have a smart TV, so I don't think I can stream Netflix on my TV instead. I'm content with watching Yu-Gi-Oh! that way because the dubs are far in a way worse than the Pokemon dubs and there's a good chance that U.S. channels may not air any Yu-Gi-Oh! dubs in the foreseeable future anyway, but not being able to watch the new series on my TV until a possible DVD release at least a year later is a bit sad for me.
The trailer itself is neat and I'm glad that we finally got some more solid information on the dub, but I am mostly disappointed that Disney XD seemingly isn't interested in airing the new series after they did a pretty solid job with SM. After putting over a thousand episodes on their website and promoting the series consistently, it's just a shame to see them not pick up this series too. Gou's dub name being Goh makes sense. I usually refer to the characters by their dubs names, but I may stick with Gou since I'm used to it, is only one letter different and I'm pretty sure they both sound the same anyway. I'll have to think about that. Gou's dub voice sounded fine from what we saw. It sounded a bit deeper or older than I expected him to sound, but it wasn't bad.
I guess I'll have to look into those as well. Hopefully it won't be too expensive or involve a lot of programming to connect it since I don't have a smart TV.Well I did predict Netflix, right? And getting an smart streaming device like an Fire Stick or Roku is very cheap these days. Totally worth it especially with the amount of awesome streaming services you can use even free ones like Pluto TV.
I enjoy binge watching, but I usually don't watch more than one or two episodes of a show per day. Sometimes it's more if I'm really into the show or wanting to catch up. It really just depends on my mood too. With Pokemon, I feel more comfortable binge watching reruns more so than new episodes, especially when I have most of the different series on DVD at this point. I wouldn't want to go through twelve episodes and not have anything new for months either. That would be kind of sad to go through three months' worth of episodes in about two weeks.This is what I'm gonna do.

I'll check that out as well. Being able to stream the series on my TV would at least make the transition to Netflix feel a bit more natural for me.Buy a chromecast and you can stream to your TV
