    Pocket Monsters (2019) Sword/Shield Chapter

    I'm glad this arc is happening and I hope it does justice to the terrible execution of this plot in the games. "Wild Pokemon have grown massive! Trust me, it's happening, really!" come on guys jesus christ.

    Ash's Lucario and Gou's Cinderace

    I just think it's great that Ash is getting a Lucario in general. I think there's a kind of intrinsic "credibility" to his team. Like even ignoring Dragonite - Gengar, Lucario and a probable Sirfetch'd have such cache with Pokemon fans. They're known and regarded as being strong Pokemon. I...

    The great Reserve debate

    Presuming Ash makes the master tournament and makes the final - big presumptions but possible - he will have three matches. I would expect they will do at minimum an 8-9 episode arc allowing Ash to have three good full battles, allowing him to use 18 Pokemon. This will mean he can dig into his...

    Who do you guys think was the strongest companion?

    I have a small issue with this post - I don't think that Blaziken is "as strong" as Sceptile. Type advantage still matters in the anime, even if it clearly doesn't matter as much as it does in the game. I thought the writers there made a very clear decision to give May the advantage in order to...

    The Legend of Heroes! Leon's Ultimate Battle! (1116)

    I am so stoked Ash got a Farfetch'd. Sirfetch'd is one of the all-time great Pokemon. A great surprise. I always thought Ash's XY team was his best - a pseudo-legendary, a dragon, possibly the best regional bird, an OP starter, and Hawlucha, who is simply an exceptional Pokemon - but honestly...

    Accidentally traded away my starter, Fueguito, with a guy called kr7x =(

    I was doing surprise trades and I accidentally selected my level 100 Cinderace nicknamed Fueguito. It's agonizing. I know it's a long shot, but does anyone happen to know this user Kr7x? The game says he's Spanish or at least from Spain. Sorry for the weird thread, I know it was my mistake but...

    Pocket Monsters 2019 Anime: Thoughts before anime started vs thoughts now!

    You should never not be excited to see Dragonite. Its kind of a big deal. Anyway, I thought it was directionless at first but Ash building a monstrously good team and even building towards him being a top 8 trainer in the world is really interesting. It's a great logical progression from...

    He's Born! The Alolan League Winner! (1082)

    Oh wow Meowth, Bewear and Guzzlord That's definitely directly comparable to *every single voice in the dub*. All of them, without exception, thanks to the godawful direction and line selection.

    He's Born! The Alolan League Winner! (1082)

    It is not a "mini league, like Orange Islands" at all, but I'm sure this is exactly the kind of response you were going for when you typed that so congratulations I guess. I watched the dub. As expected it's significantly worse in terms of music and performance (why does everyone in the dub...

    Pikachu is Born! (1090)

    Might be one of the most interesting episodes in the show's 20+-year history. Very into this.

    Thoughts on Ash having finally won a Pokemon League.

    I wouldn't say that. I didn't expect Ash to go from top 8 to winner. Would have been nice, and I WANTED it to happen, but I don't think it was a belief held by the majority.

    November 17th: PM2019 001: Pikachu is Born!

    This is a great idea for an episode. It may be the most significant piece of backstory the show has ever delivered. I'm very into it.

    What did you like and dislike about Sun and Moon?

    Another thing that I liked: Ash tackling Faba. 10/10 assault.

    What did you like and dislike about Sun and Moon?

    That's a good point. With what we know on this forum it isn't often that we have a battle where we genuinely have no idea as to the outcome. I think Ash/Alain was kept largely secret, but other than that we basically knew the result of all of Ash's big matches already. Ash winning this was a...

    Alright I guess. I think you're overstating the problem a bit but it's your call
