Wow, that was a very thorough analysis indeed. I could never write anything like that in a hundred years. I disagree with a couple of things in the analysis, but there was some really good stuff there that I'd never even thought of before. Color me intrigued.
XY041 The next challenge at the now furiously competitive Summer Camp is "PokéEnteering"! Eureka gets lost in the thick mist, but then she sees something deep in the forest... just what is it?
Summary: The Summer Camp has become furiously competitive Satoshi's and Tierno's teams are competing for the lead with the exact same number of points. The next program is "PokéEnteering", where one collects the stamps at the various checkpoint that make up the course before heading for the goal as fast as one can.
Both Tierno and Satoshi progress smoothly trough the checkpoints by working together with their respective teammates. However, after a while the mist grows thick and Eureka ends up getting lost. Will the others manage to find her while she's still safe!? And what is it she sees in the forest while lost...!?
XY043 Summary: "Right as the Gym match against Korrina at the Shalour Gym is about to start, Team Rocket steals their book of secrets." Blurb: "Pikachu goes up against Korrina using the "rhythm strategies" taught by Tierno."

Haha, so Pikachu will dance his way to victory? He's already done that way back in the beginning of Johto in that Bellossom episode. Not only that, but Ash also taught him to breakdance in Sinnoh. How about coming up with something new for a change, writers?
Yeah, these include Pikachu being the star of Gym Battles, Serena's character, that constant Ash glorification.....
It sure if nice to know people are no longer praising XY because it has flaws just like every other Pokémon series.
A clash between Electro Ball and Aura Sphere? It would be funny if those are the last two moves used by them, because those are also the final attacks used by Ash's Pikachu and Cameron's Lucario in the Unova League. Of course, at the time, Pikachu was weakened more than Lucario so Aura Sphere overpowered.

Oh I know all about the problems of the anime, how Ash won't win the Kalos League, then dump all his Pokemon at Oak's and move onto the next region. That's the thing, all these Pokemon have one region for screentime, whereas Pikachu has all of it, so I wouldn't mind if he took the back foot and let others have the glory. But then he wouldn't be getting money from toys. And we can't have that.
And Serena is a fine character that doesn't have much direction, which they're somewhat starting to address, it's okay to not have a dream that you'll spend as much time as there is budget going towards. It's nice to have someone who doesn't have a burning desire they'll spend their life on (to do with Pokemon of course).
And XY is much better than BW, which had its own good points (Cilan, rivals, fairly fast pace, interesting though unfortunately underused selection of Pokemon) so I can see why it's getting the praise, but of course it's not perfect. Looking forward to Serena catch her first Pokemon, finally.
The final day at the Summer Camp is a Team Battle! But the Rocket Gang suddenly appear and steal Tierno and the others' Pokémon! Will the group manage to safely retrieve Zenigame and the other Pokémon!?
Summary: The final day at the Summer Camp is a Team Battle! Satoshi and Tierno's teams are both in the lead with the exact same number of points, and the overall winner of the two will be decided in the final match! Before the finals start, Tierno and the others head to Joy to get their Pokémon treated.
But then, the Rocket Gang show up, having infiltrated the camp disguised as chefs! They end up making it off with Tierno and the others' Pokémon! Will the group manage to safely retrieve Zenigame and the other Pokémon!? And which team will win the Team Battle finals and be inducted in the Summer Camp's "Hall of Fame"!?
New title- XY045: Citron VS Eureka!? A Sibling Battle With Nyaonyx!!
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.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
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
Apr 1, 2019 23:27:34 GMT -4
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
