    Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

    Yep, Greninja just won that "favorite Pokemon" poll they ran with Google, so I would expect to start to see merchandise for at least the top 10 of those Pokemon start to come out in the coming months after it eventually but not necessarily see anything in the anime yet for any of the "top"...

    Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

    The studio that produces Boruto also produces Black Clover, and that show has announced that the show is going on hiatus around ep 132, which is the end of this month. I honestly expect a delay of pretty much any show that was not already completed. A lot of the other "big name" shows this...

    Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

    I very much doubt you can start making an actual game from home. I'm not even sure how much DLC can be done from home. Even if they can do the majority of the work from home - which again I doubt - it will at the very least take longer than usual. And that's assuming that nobody trying to make...

    What is the series' goal here?

    Nowhere in my comments say that series with arcs don't work. I'm saying that ones without them aren't automatically bad and tons of people are just fine with series that don't have tightly interconnected episodes that feed into a larger plot every episode. It seems the anime is going that route...

    What is the series' goal here?

    Also to be clear, I am not bagging on anyone who doesn't enjoy this, lots of people don't enjoy shows that are mostly made up of one-off episodes and prefer really tightly plotted stuff that has a set number of episodes so the writers have to wrap the story up. But I don't think this season of...

    What is the series' goal here?

    Honestly though, do you think a 9 or 10 year old cares about "over-arching story", outside of maybe a tournament/league arc? And I'm not saying kids are too stupid or don't deserve good stories, but I really don't think a kid who played the games is going to care that when watches the anime on...

    March 10th: SM112 - A New Species Has Been Discovered! I Got a Meltan!!

    Meltan is seriously cute when animated, I didn't think much of it before but I think I'll end up charmed like I did with Poipole. I hope this trend of putting mythicals and legendaries into the actual anime continues, that is one thing from this series I have loved a lot. It makes them feel more...

    An Island Kahuna is Born! Ash's Grand Trial!! (1052)

    Honestly I don't mind when Ash uses the environment to help him win a battle, and heck they even had Pikachu use Electroweb to save himself after getting hit with the Z-move, but the actual battle itself was boring even with those "clever" twists. I am generally enjoying this series but I am...

    An Island Kahuna is Born! Ash's Grand Trial!! (1052)

    It was obvious what was gonna happen the second the anime revealed they were gonna battle on a platform in the middle of the ocean and Ash was still gonna use Pikachu and Sparking Gigavolt - there was only one option and it was "get the ground type wet so Pikachu can shock it". I did like that...

    February 17th: SM109 - An Island Queen is Born! Satoshi's Grand Trial!!

    I did, multiple times. It's not the same pose or position at all. But we'll find out come the episode anyway.

    February 17th: SM109 - An Island Queen is Born! Satoshi's Grand Trial!!

    I just looked at both Pikachu and Rowlet using that move and while the glow in the bracelet does look yellow and not white, the pose isn't the same - one arm is out to the side, one is down. That pic above has them both down, which is the very first pose Ash goes into with Sparking Gigavolt. My...

    February 17th: SM109 - An Island Queen is Born! Satoshi's Grand Trial!!

    That pose is from the Sparking Gigavolt animation sequence and usually the color of the glow around the bracelet matches the stone in it (the new Flying-Z one is blue and the glow is blue, etc) and that one sure looks yellow to me.

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    Cutscene skipping might be one of the biggest QoL changes they've done, people are gonna love that. If they don't carry it over to other games I'm pretty sure the tantrums will be epic.

    November 16th: SM50 - Sauboh Strikes Back! Starcloud Gets Abducted!!

    Which just further proves that neither of those things were ever going to set her off in the anime. I actually found myself pretty irritated at the fact that she apparently didn't even really know what the project was when she's so obsessed with UBs in the game that she would have known every...

    Sun & Moon Pokémon Speculation Thread

    I'd call stuff like the eating and yowling competition they have a rivalry. They're eating and Litten sees Lycanroc, starts eating faster, Lycanroc sees it and starts eating faster. Lycanroc barks at Ash, Litten looks at it and then yowls loudly at him. Stuff like that. I don't think it's an...

    November 16th: SM50 - Sauboh Strikes Back! Starcloud Gets Abducted!!

    Gladion already stole Silvally and ran away and Lillie's been rejecting her and yelling at her all season so far. If those were going to be her triggers in the anime, she would have already lost it.

    Sun & Moon Pokémon Speculation Thread

    Mallow's been getting screwed over the whole time, it's not like it would be a deviation from the norm lol. At least it would give her a boost even if Ash doesn't need to battle her.

    Pokemon USUM SPOILER Thread (Enter at your own risk!)

    I'm still annoyed at the exclusion of the National Dex. If it's gone next gen too, I'm not gonna bother maintaining a living dex or keep Pokemon Bank - there's no reason to hold on to a bunch of Pokemon I don't like when there's no incentive anymore.

    Pokemon USUM SPOILER Thread (Enter at your own risk!)

    Makes sense, considering these aren't sequels like BW2 was.
