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.
I thank you all for your time here, even if there wasn't much going on. But now it's time to move on...

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.
ShiningStarlia: I absolutely have no idea how anyone draws the conclusion that it's bringing forth the Apocalypse. Or a Japanese cartoon show having characters use different forms of Japanese dialect and accents to fit their different cultures is the worst thing ever.

ShiningStarlia: Either way, it's over with, and tomorrow's episode is something more plot before the league episodes start up. Can focus on that instead of losing one's mind over a forgettable filler episode.

Donkarasu: Sorry, I need to say this; When you posted those other forum comments, Ryu, it's clear you were reading what you wanted to read and took me saying that you shouldn't act like your life was ruined by this episode as me saying you shouldn't like it at all.
Jun 24, 2019 4:32:42 GMT -4
Donkarasu: This is why I got so pissed off at you, because you purposely twisted what I had said. In fact, a majority of those comments you posted basically had the correct way to dislike this; calling it dumb or annoying, but without any of all the unnecessary rage.

Donkarasu: I listened to the full version of the remake for Type: Wild and I found Shōko Nakagawa did a great job.
Jun 25, 2019 12:40:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also way before that (like last week) I heard the remake of Together With The Wind, it was good too.
Jun 25, 2019 12:42:09 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Excellent. I'll get to hearing it whenever I get the chance to.
Jun 25, 2019 16:43:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Goodness gracias that type wild remix was amazing! I love how so full of energy it is!
Jul 8, 2019 17:07:22 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Hah, I can't get over how good the Alolan remixed Type: Wild is. I remember when it played during Infernape vs Electivire; if this song got remixed, we're due for something amazingly good and fun. Can't wait!

Donkarasu: I forgot to post the magazine scan and translation for the episode that aired yesterday... Oh well.
Jul 15, 2019 5:35:27 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I had no idea this forum had a block button which hides posts that you can open to see.
Jul 15, 2019 18:12:13 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Huh really. Anyway, enjoyed the newest episode. Ash's ironic tobias moment done accidentally and Mallow & Lana's clash.
Jul 15, 2019 22:01:52 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Rowlet in that Decidueye costume is extremely adorable
Jul 28, 2019 17:04:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, THAT was probably the anime's biggest fake-out that I've ever seen and made me go "Wait, what?!" for a couple of minutes until everything was cleared up.
Aug 4, 2019 20:46:02 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I find it so poetically ironic that even its been weeks after that bait and switch fake-out with Rowlet falling asleep...I still see some circle jerking around a few other boards.
Aug 24, 2019 19:26:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: For all the fire that 2016's Kalos League failure drew for Ash losing it down to the wire...never in my wildist imagination would I ever see parts of a community screaming so violently lividly that he should've lost instead.
Aug 24, 2019 19:27:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Whether or not the joke was in good taste is up for debate, though I find it quirky and humorous, I wouldn't think people would get this levels of upset.
Aug 24, 2019 19:28:20 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Saw the incoming upcoming anime episode clip and a certain old friend we've long missed makes their return! I'm so darn excited!

Donkarasu: I usually post full summaries for next week's Pokémon episodes on Monday, because that's when the previews show up on YouTube. But this time I decided to post it on the day it was revealed, seeing as that was the ONLY summary for the episode.
