Misty is an official gym leader now. She can't just quit and return to being Ash's traveling friend. Plus, I don't see the point of having Misty back in the group. I mean, she would just be this random waste of space (like Brock is), since Hikari is the new co-star and she actually has a role.Now, about Moaning about Misty and not enjoying AG, well, taking Misty out for some episodes wasn't a bad idea actually for she needed some rebuilding after Johto but she should have returned and maybe returned as a strong trainer, prolly as a rival of Ash too.
Its true, that a lot of people lost interest in Pokemon. But that doesn't mean more people are starting to gain interest in it. Pokemon became 'uncool' during my Middle School years. I still, liked it. But, I lost interest in it during Johto. What got my interest back was AG. And it seems like a lot of people got their interest back by AG. And a lot of people lost interest during Johto.Pokemon has gone Downhill, IMO. Pokemon, was the most popular with the G/S/C era. Now, alot of fans are still here, but it is no longer, the 'cool' thing to like.
So? That was a given. No fad lasts forever.Pokemon has gone Downhill, IMO. Pokemon, was the most popular with the G/S/C era. Now, alot of fans are still here, but it is no longer, the 'cool' thing to like.
While there is no fad anymore, Pokemon was still always in the top 3 shows ratings wise on KidsWB. Right now its one of Cartoon Networks highest rated shows, which is why the damn channel is rushing through the episodes and airing new eps every weekday at 8pm.
CN may be getting great ratings, but the the way they're rushing through the season is pitiful.
On terms of those sagas, my post applies mostly about Americans that are NOT like, pre-second-grade age but still older than 3 years of age... Thank you for the comment...The Battle Frontier saga is getting the highest ratings on Cartoon Network other than Class of 3000 and a handful of other shows. Whether people dislike the new VA's or not, they're still watching.
As for Hoenn, just because Team Magma/Aqua had a poor ending doesn't mean the rest of the saga did. After that was the last two Gyms, two Contests, GF, league and a whole bunch of great episodes inbetween. Advanced Battle was really good. People need to think of what ELSE happened besides Groudon/Kyorge.
