        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

        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

      tbh, while I agree that PM19 needs more of an underlying plot, I like how they're handling the "random" battles by having them be more like plot devices for the rest of the episode (Ash showing the kids the fun of battling for 20 and producing an aura to be felt by Riolu in 21) rather than just mindlessly/meaninglessly having Ash beat some scrubs, like I feared the early tiers would be

        You have great arcs like the Korrina arc, the Goodra arc, and it regularly builds up its characters with focus episodes for Serena, Clement, and Bonnie

        While there's not as much long-term setup in PM19, a notable one wouldd be Go and Raboot's out of sync relationship, which has been hinted at since episode 6 and has been gradually creating a rift between them

      The shipping forum was probably the most lively around 2006/2007ish. Ask Cybercubed; he probably started lots of flame wars with Misty fans way back then lol

      I'm now really worried about the Korrina rematch. I'm glad Tomioka is there, but episodes where the animation is directed by Akihiko Oka tend to be pretty meh, and Yuh Takahashi's are ok, but nothing special. The third animation director has never worked on pokemon before, so IDK about her. Hopefully we get great key animators working on it

        Amour specifically and her crushing over Ash is like so incredibly infrequent and is literally just a couple of blushes and her worrying over Ash. Her relationship with Ash, however, is a focal part of her character and she is so much better off because of it.

        Ash is clearly an inspiration for her and someone she looks for guidance as she wasn't someone who was as motivated to the level Ash was. That and Amour are intertwined really well and you can understand why she likes him and it's NEVER too much

      In terms of ranking of gym battles atm. 1. Ash vs Korrina ; 2. Ash vs Ramos ; 3. Ash vs Viola ; 4. Ash vs Grant

        Fair enough, though I still liked it (especially how they showed Onix towering over Froakie). I'll admit I don't even remember Fletchling's part

      Also wanted to talk about Ash's team atm. You have Pikachu of course, Fletchinder, Sliggoo, Hawlucha, and Frogadier.

        Show takes great pain in characterizing them, I would say just Fletchinder is not significantly characterized and even he had his moment in the Sky battle where his insecurities about being small were shown. Hawlucha of course, is probably the most bombastic out of everyone. Tons of flair, tons of personality, really great Pokemon.

        Sliggoo gets a huge backstory and it's interwoven with his character so well. Just love the guy, really heartwarming Pokemon. Frogadier of course, total badass, no need for explanation.
