Emolga in an afro was one of the best things ever! Haha, adorable....
I'm sorry but I don't buy this argument.While I agree with your complaints dman, you have to realise that this is first and foremost a children's show to entertain children. It's all well and good that we want moar tranquil and good development, but the writers don't give a crap about that because that's not what keeps children watching.
Obviously the treatment of Tranquil, Swadloon and Palpitoad is diabolical, but the kids watching this show don't care about that at all.
Exactly. This is lazy writing. Tranquill would have been perfect here. But instead we get Oshawott being annoying for an entire episode. The rotation system could have been a good idea but now we can see that the writers are too damn lazy to pull something as simple as that off. Even Johto was handled better than this.I'm sorry but I don't buy this argument.
A really good writer would be able to entertain children yet use other Pokemon than just Pikachu, and the starters.
It sound incredibly lazy and horrible (in terms of quality writing) just to pick and choose the easiest Pokemon to write for.
It would take a real good writer to adapt Ash's giant ensemble cast to make an entertaining episode for children. And yet as I've said, they're pumping out episode after episode, most likely just cutting corners. I cannot see why Ash has 9 Unova Pokemon except to make the league more varied, especially since they can't be bothered to use the other Pokemon. Here I thought the writers wanted Ash to have many Pokemon so that from a storyline perspective they aren't bogged down with the same 6 Pokemon for everything. Apparently not because they haven't even really done it like that.
Let's just face it, the writers clearly and obviously write episodes just to piss me off. Because I almost feel like I can do a better job than them. Because at the very least, I'd be willing to use other Pokemon. Look I don't care, I really don't care if they want to shove Pikachu and the starters down our throats.
But why the hell is it so hard for Ash to use his other Pokemon as well. And I'm not talking about important, important storyline things. Why can't Boldore for example take a charging Bouffalant and then scare it off, but still have Snivy toss Oshawott and Tepig to get medicine. Or why not have Scraggy get in a fight with a Bouffalant, have Ash used another Pokemon, maybe Swadloon, use string shot to tie up the Bouffalant and run away. Or why not use Tranquill to go and find Iris and his Pokemon.
I'm pretty sure there are MANY ways the writers could utilize Ash's other Pokemon without cutting into the starters "screentime" and "importance" their choice to not do that is what pisses me off so much.
Wow. And here I thought no one wanted Tepig to evolve. And give Iris a Bouffalant? Whoa! Having a Excadrill, a Bouffalant and a future Fraxture sounds pretty insane, even for her.I kind of feel bad for slamming this episode hard before it aired, because I enjoyed it. It was funny and cute. Sucks that Tepig didn't evolve though, and by the end of the episode, I was kind of hoping Iris caught that Bouffalant.
I'm glad to be moving on to the gym battles.
I guess so, but I have to admit I did think there was a chance she'd get that Bouffalant. Oh well, it was a nice thought anyway.Wow. And here I thought no one wanted Tepig to evolve. And give Iris a Bouffalant? Whoa! Having a Excadrill, a Bouffalant and a future Fraxture sounds pretty insane, even for her.
