Did Pokemon go Downhill?

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Yeah, try telling that to Simpsons or Family Guy. Staying on the air does not mean staying consistant.

    The best season to me was the Orange Islands. It was pure fun and enjoyment. But of course I love the first season, too. I think most fans stopped watching during the middle of the Master Quest or maybe after Misty left. I think most fans that stopped watching are aware of May and Max though. The argument of Pokemon going downhill is based on the fact the overall outline of an episode is "repetitive," and although that's true we still get many side-adventures that keep the show interesting.

    (looks at thread) Whoa...

    The Pokemon series is still popular and successful on TV. I personally think that the quality of the show went down in mid-Johto and started going up again during AG. Not everything in AG (and Kanto) was great, but they were the better parts of the series. (However, Johto wasn't 100% bad either.)

    Also, like people have been saying, criticizing a show doesn't mean that someone necessarily hates the show. It just means that they don't want to accept every single thing that happens in the show and act like it's flawless.

    Also, LSUkid007, if the show continues to get great ratings on a channel, they'll keep airing it and new episodes no matter what the quality of the show is.

    Wait, wait... how was Kanto the weakest? I personally put Kanto right with AG, or at least Hoenn, and I know that not everyone agrees with that, but how exactly was Kanto the weakest?

    And as interesting as the Battle Frontier episodes are, I don't think they're perfect. I also don't think that every single thing the writers have done in Pokemon will help the show. It doesn't stop me from watching the show, but you don't have to watch the show and think it's flawless.

    Also, nobody said that Hamtaro was anything close to a masterpiece. Also, nobody said anything about it getting to be very popular.

    LOL, don't kid yourself. People stopped watching around mid-Johto because of how poor the episodes were. Three years of dull Johto fillers turned away most fans except for the die-hard Pokemon fans that stuck with it.

    While some stubborn fans refused to watch the show when Misty left, what AG did was bring BACK fans of the show that stopped watching in the Johto era. I remember going on non-Pokemon forums back when AG first started and oeople said how they were starting to watch the anime again after stopping during Johto, because the episodes were better written and they were interested about the new cast.

    When I see a gameboy sp, theres a 89% chance it's pokemon and I see it in school 5% of the time. People just don't want to admit they like kiddie shows.

    Playing the game doesn't mean you watch the show.

    Just because someone is playing the RPG"s doesn't mean they're getting up every Saturday morning.

    Yea I would say people stopped watching it in the early middle of the Jhoto saga, but there are still TONS AND TONS of people who still watch it. And the writers arn't slowing down one bit!

    Kanto had no plot like the one they made in the Hoenn season! It got so boring to see Ash go on some stupid adventure with his friends. The comedy was so cheap in a bad way. I just can't believe people found it funny. It had no good way to show a plot.

    Dude, I may be against Kanto Elitist, but it certainly wasn't terrible. Now your an annoying New Age person.

    And didn't you leave for good...twice?

    While I do prefer the newer episodes, I sad to say the series has been at the same level of quality overall.

    Badge Collecting and A League™ vs. Badge Collecting and A League™.

    The sheer difference is overwhelming!
    SATOSHI IS ON SOME STUPID ADVENTURE WITH HIS FRIENDS ALL THE DAMN TIME. WHAT ARE THOSE TWO STRANGERS THAT FOLLOW HIM AROUND? WHY, THOSE ARE CALLED FRIENDS. WHAT IS HE ON? AN ADVENTURE TO COLLECT BADGES AND COMPETE IN A LEAGUE.

    HE WAS ON AN ADVENTURE WITH HIS FRIENDS IN THE BEGINNING AND HE IS RIGHT NOW.

    UBER CRITISM FTFW.

    ...No, I was not yelling. I posted that in caps to make sure your little eyes can read it.
    Please tell me, how was the comedy cheap?
    Kanto was the period where it had potential to show a plot, not to mention set up everything for your precious!Jouto up til now.

    If you thought the comedy was cheap, I honestly don't know how you got into the show in the first place, since ya' know: KANTO WAS THE WEAKEST PERIOD COMPARED TO JOUTO, AMMIRITE??

    ...How did I know you were going to come back from the beginning??

    Nope Kanto was the best thats when cartoons were worth waking up for early saturday mornings, The new ones are still pretty good but a little to corny for me and may annoys me and contests in general annoy me.

    Pokemon, if anything, has gotten less corny as it has gone on.

    And while you may not like contests and Haruka, you still have to appreciate that they added SOMETHING to actually spice the anime up. Without them, we'd have had another Johto.
