Hi! I used to post on the original forums years ago, during the tail-end of the Advanced series. Never got past season nine but have started to get back into the show as my partner's kids have been watching my DVDs, so hopefully soon I'll be caught up. Looking forward to talking about this show and franchise with you guys anew
You have a long way to go until you reach the current Pokémon series, so I'll just say good luck.
Thanks, I think I'll need it!
Amazing how much nostalgia the old episodes are stirring in me, really. That's what led to me checking up on Pokemopolis, only to find it was on its way out.
Reliving everything from Kanto to Hoenn so far has been a blast, varying overall series quality notwithstanding the standard of the Gym/Contest episodes is always high. In a way, a sort of "DBZ Kai" take on the show that only focused on locations and characters from the games as well as captures/evolutions/departures would streamline the series one hell of a lot because there is truly a mountain of filler. That said, I'm finding even some of the filler episodes have interesting ideas behind them (let's face it, the entirety of series two is filler, but it still has its moments) and Team Rocket are always funny, even in the weakest episodes.
Apparently the most common reactions towards the next two series, Sinnoh and Unova, are; "Sinnoh is so cool!" and "Fuck Unova!". And I'm just going to point out that I am amongst the small group of people who thinks the opposite; I thought Sinnoh was okay, but I enjoyed Unova (it's mainly because I loved most of the characters). As for XY, there's nothing set as it's a new series, first folks were praising it - over BW, fuck them - but now they don't know what to make of it.

Hey, the name's BlueHoundoom, but people usually call me Blue. I'm from the old site too, although I never really posted all that much... Probably less than 30 times...
Anyway, I've been playing the games since Pokemon Silver, and watching since 'Wake Up, Snorlax' first played here in Australia. Which I think was when I was 13... So, 16 years now, give or take.
I haven't watched any of the Unova or Kalos episodes yet, as the TV situation isn't working for me. Basically, our aerial's been busted fr years, so I can't watch any free-to-air channels. And pay Cartoon Network just replays the same season 4-5 times. (We didn't get the final Sinnoh League season until everyone was finishing up the first Unova one...)
So I'm focusing on collecting the DVD's instead. (at least until they either end the show, or drop Ash as the 'hero') One day, I'll do a huge marathon. It'll take 3-4 months, but I'll eventually get through every episode and movie.

I hope you remember me. I decided to join these new forums after all because not being able to discuss the series and the games anywhere else properly was driving me crazy. Oh, and of course I missed you guys as well. I've been a somewhat regular lurker for a while, but I guess now it's time to get back on the Horsea.
Greetings and salutations, I am Extroth. I stalked the old website but I never posted there. I was rather sad to see the old site go but I discovered this one and decided that you guys didn't have enough people posting here so I'm here to help fix that.
I've played the games since I was nine and watched the anime about a month or so longer then that. I really enjoy competitive battling though the jury is still out on whether or not I'm good at it. I've spent some time over on the Bulbagarden forums but their anime discussions get's a little to serous for me (I once got yelled at by a Pokeshiper for telling her that Misty was probably never coming back, and I was given a waring for trolling even though I was just stating my opinion) so I prefer the more funny reading way to far into things for laughs that the old site had going for it.
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.

ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.

Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was

ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
