    November 27th: PM2019 047 - Pokémon Champion! The Battle of Big Eaters!!

    Shame that the episode takes place in Vermillion. It should be Celadon - it has a restaurant that holds an eating contest in the games. Such a wasted opportunity to visit a different Kanto town.

    Pocket Monsters (2019) Pokémon Speculation Thread

    It's nothing more than a gut feeling... but something tells me that Journeys is gonna jump the shark after the "Sword & Shield" arc. Not sure if it'll be for better or for worse, but I'd expect a change in the series formula... just when I started to grow to like it.

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    To me, the Karate Master having four disciples is an interesting information (but yeah, most people probably don't care). Why? Because it implies a high fidelity toward the games, where there were four Trainers (aside from the Master) in the Dojo, the Blackbelts named Hideki, Hitoshi, Mike and...

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    Well, aside from different names, nothing really suggests they're separate. NPCs from different regions constantly mention the Karate Master from Saffron City as a much-idolized Fighting-type Trainer. Hell, he even appears in person in Kalos. He's actually one of the most-referenced Kanto...

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    This episode's got my interest because of Saffron City Karate Master being there. Will he be Kiyo (from Johto), Hamm (from Kanto Battle Frontier) or someone else because... screw continuity? Even in the games his identity is problematic, as he is known as Koichi in Kanto-based games and Kiyo in...

    June Plot Discussion

    You've probably forgotten that Hidenori Kusaka x Emiko Yoshino mangas exist (for core and spin-off games alike). They were one-shots but as far as I know, there were also some two- or even three-chaptered ones. Although they stopped making them years ago and those that got released are...

    June Plot Discussion

    How about this month's CoroCoro Ichiban with new SwSh chapter? Also cancelled for virus?

    June Plot Discussion

    So, our long-awaited eight pages are here finally... We can go home now. The arc that frustrated the hell out of us has come to a close. We braced ourselves, we cried, we waited so long for every chapter... and the result was usually unrewarding. And this ending is just like the rest of this...

    January Plot Discussion

    Kusaka really overdid it with the names this time... I'm wondering how will Viz handle their localization. Prepare for some very bad Sword and Shield-based puns, as if "Sordward" and "Shielbert" weren't enough. Though, I guess they will still be casually known as "Sword" and "Shield" in the...

    October Plot Discussion

    So, Sunday Webry has now became Japan-only? Isn't it the saddest day in PokeSpe's history since the Shogakukan "Grade" magazines were discontinued?

    September Plot Discussion

    God, I just can't describe how much I hate those unrealistic "child prodigy" stories. And this one is especially ridiculous. How about Ryuki? They showed a glimpse of him in the previous chapter and now they're pretending that he isn't around at all?

    Blame me for cursing it but... So it begins.

    April 21st: SM118 - Aim for the Top Floor! The Explosive Dragon Gym!!

    My educated guess is that the individual floors of the Gym will be based on respective Kanto Gyms, but of course, it's just a guess, I may be wrong.

    April 21st: SM118 - Aim for the Top Floor! The Explosive Dragon Gym!!

    At first, I thought it's April Fools, but I guess I've seen evidence solid enough to say that it's real. So, if Ryuki appears in this episode, it means that all notable Gen VII NPCs (not counting old gen cameos) were shown in the anime, with the exception of Ultra Recon Squad. But if we take...
