    Yes, all of which are better than her performance as Ash, which further mystifies me as to why people tend to top bill her for that role instead of anything else on her resume.

    The American branch isn't directing this Japanese thing in other countries. Every country is on their own publishing the series on cable or not.

    And thus silence fell...

    Pokemon being on Netflix is great and all but the fact that dub-wise everything has gone super quiet kinda makes me miss when the dub was on weekly and there would barely be a speck of silence, but alas this is the price we must pay when a dubbed show moves to Netflix.

    Um, every batch of episodes is released every three months. Every batch is 12 episodes. We still get the same rate of episodes.

    He's talking about how the conversation just stops dude. It's true, you know. There are other examples of weekly airing causing constant discussion over a show compared to Netflix binge-drop. Compare Game of Thrones to Stranger Things for example. Both shows watched by millions, and yet, during every season of Game of Thrones, the conversation was much more and lasted longer than the conversation around Stranger Things. Why? Because everyone watches Stranger Things in one week and then it's over. For Game of Thrones, every week, there would be something new to discuss and new theories to break down.

    Now, everyone's finished the 12 episodes, we've talked about them, we've finished talking about them in just 3-4 weeks, and now we have to wait at least 8 more weeks for new episodes. The pace may be the same, the pace of conversation isn't. It's wildly different.

    And btw, don't reply to this saying you haven't watched Game of Thrones or Stranger Things. For what it's worth, I've never watched Stranger Things either, and I still follow pop culture trends and news enough to know that what I said is true -- I only hear about Stranger Things each year for like 2-3 weeks as soon as it comes out, then don't hear about it for another year. That's what I'm talking about, not whether you've actually watched the show or not. I say this bc you frequently reply saying that you haven't watched something, as if that invalidates my claim.

    I both agree and disagree with @RetroPokeFan. It was actually nicer in many ways to get so many episodes at once. Considering how weak episodes 1-9 were, I can't imagine sitting through those for 9 weeks before getting to the good stuff. I might have even given up on the series. As I've posted in one of the episode threads (maybe episode 12, I think) this was the first beginning of a series that I've absolutely hated. I've never given up on Pokémon in 22 years, was I going to give up now? I was close, let me tell you. Fortunately not since 10-12 saved it. However, if I had had to sit through those 9 episodes for 9 weeks instead of a few days? It's possible, sadly. So, in that sense, I am happy it came all at once.

    At the same time, I totally agree that it stinks that the conversation has ended. I usually spend almost the whole week discussing the last episode, and then moving onto the next episode. Now, I've pretty much discussed all there is to about the 12 episodes, and I'm less interested in the forum that I usually am. I think that's all @RetroPokeFan is saying. He's not saying that the mathematically defined pace of episode release has changed. Your mathematical analysis isn't apropos to his point.

    Speaking as someone who did have to sit through those nine episodes one at a time, yeah, it was rough. With the show taking 12 episodes to even establish a direction for the main character's character arc and Go's captures being about as engaging as watching someone play a video game with cheats on, there really was nothing to look forward to other than the vague hope that maybe the show would eventually actually do something cool with its region-hopping gimmick. Because using said region-hopping gimmick purely for the standard filler plots we'd had in every series... was not cutting it. I mean even now I don't think the show is doing all that much with the concept, but at least the story feels like it's gained some sort of momentum at this point and there actually is tangible stuff for us to speculate about. (aka, "Who will come back for the Championship later? What kind of OP Pokémon will our hero catch next?")
    ...Go's catches are still about as engaging as watching someone play a video game with cheats on, however.

    At least someone playing a game using cheats on is funny when they turn big heads on.

    Honestly, only episodes 1-5 were tough to sit through for me. Episode 6 was when I thought the series was starting to get good partly because it captured the fun of catching pokemon in the games & showed us that Go cares for his pokemon even though he has so many of them.

    I didn't really mind it all that much since I knew Go's way of catching is based on Pokemon Go's mechanics

    Not just Let's Go. You forgot that Pokemon GO, the mobile spinoff, was where that style of catching originated.
