    Not when they're countless number of episodes where Ash helps out a cotd/potd with Team Rocket causing some kind of trouble in them.

    Sun and moon had some pretty good filler.Like the baseball episode or the one where his pokemon go looking for them.It also had some kinda bad ones like where they went grocery shopping or when Mareanie found her old Toxipex love

    Tell that to One Piece and ESPECIALLY Naruto anime watchers. See how it goes.

    I like many filler episodes more than plot-important ones. It's just very start of the series is not a time to focus on bunch on random wild Ivysaur, it's time to focus on the main cast and/or their captures.

    This episode looks like yet another bait to hype up the new series. I mean, what would be the point of referencing Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden without Ash's Bulbasaur? I hope I'm wrong and we will see Bulbasaur, but I don't expect it.

    Just wish we'll get more continuity this series than just brief mentions and easter eggs.

    Only if they're interesting. Seriously, cotd/potd have gotten so formulaic that chemistry would laugh at it.

    Fillers would be interesting if the anime would bother to make fun of the many, many dex entries that are so incredible or so unbelievable to believe, but it almost always looks the other way in an lackluster attempt to be witty.

    Dex on Espurr:
    It hides tremendous power behind its blank stare.

    The anime on Espurr:
    "Haunted mansion episode! And let's make it SMILE!"

    Dex on Lucario:
    It senses emotions and becomes disturbed when it senses troubling thoughts.

    The anime on Lucario:
    Korrina: Check out my cool Lucario's Aura Sphere! It goes WAH!

    It's like they're being given a gold mine, but then they somehow believe that if they dig right where they are, they'll find a hidden oil reserve on top before going to check the gold mine itself, only for them to trap themselves into a hole.

    How in the world is Pokemon having powers (hey, all Pokemon have special abilities) so incredible or unbelievable to believe? Like sure, you can make a funny gag with Espurr's blank stare, but where do you go beyond that? What's so unbelievable about those dex entries? What's there to make fun of with Lucario sensing troubling emotions? Is that somehow supposed to be crazy in the Pokemon universe where Pokemon can tear continents apart?

    You couldn't have chosen less fitting dex entries for the point you're trying to make.

    I never expected Satoshi's Fushigidane to appear here to begin with, so this episode being an average installment is just something that I thought should've been rather obvious from the start. That said, I'm not a fan of Fushigisou, so I'm sort of dreading watching an episode that focuses on it.

    Geez, calm down, tiger.

    We never did see an Espurr outright tearing trees down when pushed to a corner to unleash all that power it's supposedly storing. Also, they don't smile. Not even in the games will petting them make them smile other than simply opening their mouths.

    All the Lucario we have seen in the anime also hardly ever bother to use their aura powers but instead are treated like SF's Ryu stereotypes. The last deals we got were either copy-and-paste doubles of their trainers that overwrote their natural expertise, outright forgetting their powers when the plot could've easily been solved using them, to "wait, why does Kukui even have a Lucario in the first place?"

    I'm sure I'm not the only one wanting to see a Blaziken jumping over a skyscraper from the ground floor (closest we got was a three-story building, but it was Batman genes at work).

    Also, they don't have to be wild to exhibit these traits. They can also implement the facts during battles to make them look more interesting than simply brute forcing attacks.

    Actual definition of filler: an unimportant section of a story dedicated to keeping the audience occupied
    Fandom definition of filler: an episode I hate
    Specific fan's definition of filler: anything that doesn't match up with my fanfic version of the anime's story

    Well, in that case, I'm declaring the Sinnoh saga filler.

    I don't mind them, it's just that there shouldn't be a filler this early... before Go gets Scorbunny and Ash his first Galar capture. And the TRio theirs, though they're sure to at least get something next episode, who knows about Ash...

    Oh Boruto's worse at it. Saw every Naruto episode but couldn't sit through some Boruto filler lol

    Now, I call B.S. here. A lot of times I just express my opinion, just to express my thoughts. But apparently that annoys people so they feel the need to respond. Especially when those opinions are venting rants which no one should be responding to anyway.

    But any of the posts that I actually want to have a conversation with, people just ignore like it doesn't exist.

    It gets VERY annoying how that ends up being the case, but I just should accept it at this point.


    Having a preferred way the anime should be going doesn't qualify as "match up with my fanfic version of the anime's story"

    If it was even remotely possible, that would only matter if I had the superhuman ability to make my own Pokemon series, to hell with copyright.

    But it's not, because we live in a very boring uninteresting world. And everyone has to in some degree accept that.

    So I may not like certain decisions the anime does, but because there's absolutely NOTHING I can do about it, and I continue to watch it because I have nothing else to watch. I'm stuck with only Pokemon Anime that exists, so again I have to accept the choices they decide to make, because ultimately there's nothing I can do to change it.

    Sure I could stop watching, but where's the point in that? Not watching Pokemon or even playing would make the world even more boring.
  17. Which pokemon are the Trio going to use?

    Would like it if James brought Mime Jr. back and maybe Jessie can use Seviper I guess (up until maybe she gets Silicobra).

    I just don't know. I wish the opening had spoilers, because then we'd have a better gauge on what they plan to do with the teams.

    Mime Jr. returning and becoming a Mr. Rime is what I'm hoping for. Sandaconda is a snake Jessie can have that one.

    LOL! seriously chuckled here... but at the rate the anime is going, the OS is the one that's all filler :p

    Since TRio has been leaving their pokemon behind a bit, it'd be awesome if they got to bring their particular pokemon to certain regions or meet up with them in whatever region they are in. I can forgive forgetting about Ash having older pokemon compared to TRio... since Ash catches a bunch more anyways but TRio usually end up with a couple and JAMES GETS HALF MY FAVORITES!!! Need to see them again :D
