  • I ended up finishing XYZ a while back and I didn't end up writing my thoughts, but the TF arc and what came after was really just brilliantly done.

    Really though, what came after that just made me a lot more emotional. Especially the last episode as all the time I spent with the XY gang and the joy that watching that wonderful cast of characters end really hit me.

    XY/XYZ had both the emotional and narrative core to make the story work and it just went full force. Whether it was the AG departure, or Dedenne not wanting them to leave, it was all just done so well.

    I don't mind it, I just wish that the avatars were bigger and square shaped and that there was a username change option lol

    Well, I finished the Kalos League

    Ash's role in the TF arc makes narrative sense in the overarching structure of the show, what doesn't make sense is his underutilization in the league.

    There should have been a greater balance in the league itself, contrasting both Alain and Ash from the beginning in the league, much in the way they handled Sawyer(which was handled really well!). Or if not in the beginning, they should have frontloaded it more after he beat Sawyer at least!

    Thinking about it, yeah. I guess Ash's role on the KL post-Sawyer kinda fits XY's overall story, but when considering both the KL's story and the story of the anime as a whole, it just feels incredibly off.
    God, I love how AG rolls his pokeball to Ash in a callback to when he was first caught as a Froakie.
    The character writing during Ash's depression arc is just amazing in XYZ. It breathes so much life and interest into his character.

    His relationship and development throughout the series with AG is one the reasons why XY is just so great

    Ash was a Gary Stu in XY in a similar way Kirito from Swords Art Online was...

    Personally, rewatching XY/XYZ, I really never got that feeling at all.
    I already said this, but battles are so much better in XY/XYZ their really isn't even a fair comparison one could make.
    Also, XY/Z is incredibly funny with its gags since a lot of them actually are based on dialogue and running jokes. Bonnie is so entertaining

    The episode where Bonnie's " please marry brother " gag comes home to roost is a total hoot.
    As far as Amour goes, once again, it's subtle and just the way it should be. It's never really in your face with cute moments

    I did get salty again rewatching the dance episode though lol
    Serena's has one of the best characters arcs in anime. Watched her third princess key and her Master Class performance.

    The animation as well was just insane

    I especially love seeing Ash talk to Serena about her loss and what he does when he loses. Like throughout XYZ, it's so clear that Serena both loves and sees Ash as someone to aspire towards. He aids in her character development so much

    Its a shame they neglected her for so long in the first year of the series. Her best episodes were in the 1st half of the second year imo.
    Rewatching XYZ, such a ****ing breath of fresh air. The 3d camera itself makes battles so much better.

    also, Heidayu's Bisharp is OP. Taking on Sanpei's Greninja, Pikachu, and Frogadier at the same time? And destroying them? Really impressive.

    What's even more impressive is that imperfect Ash-Greninja basically one-shot it lol
    From what I'm seeing, it seems like Ash vs Bea will be the best choreographed Journeys battle so far (not much of a high bar, but still).
    ah, the sound of PAD breakdowns is a melody to my ears

    seems like they might be testing the waters for Go replacing Ash tho

    People are getting angry every time Goh seems to be getting screentime. There is the possibility you might be right tbh, and I'm not sure if I'd like that or not, but I still want to see how it happens if it does end up happening.

    Also, I'm pretty interested on next week's episode, since it seems to be delving deeper into Goh's backstory. The Bea episode could be good, but I'm mostly looking forward to its staff list to see how it'll end up being like
    Oh we're sharing opinions for once (about today's episode and the current series in general xD)

    Yeah. Pretty clear where the direction of this series is at the moment

    The selective continuity really brings this series down for me. I wanted something that felt more natural like the continuity in AG and DP
    Yeah mega evo gives at least a 2x ‘battle viability’ boost (if not more) based on the standard set by Korrina’s mega lucario (meaning a mega should be able to handle 2 of its base form back to back).

    Korrina’s mega lucario nearly doublted it’s offensive power and put it in a completely different league of speed.

    Dragonite is a busted Pokemon that's for sure. Literally posted exactly what you said about it replacing Incineroar/Snorlax lmao

    Not gonna lie though, it would be cool. Dragonite as a Pokémon is much better than Incineroar/Snorlax. I always wanted Goodra to be the cuddly tank of Ash’s team, but Dragonite is great as well

    Just hope they actually build up more going forward
