    He would have giggled uncontrollably if it had been a LEGENDARY GIANT ROCK.

    So it's possible that whoever beats Lance in Kanto Champion League or Kanto E4 Cup becomes the Kanto Champion?

    The SM meme faces weren't that cringy, they simply added to the comedic style SM was aiming for. It was merely something to get used to after the first couple of times.

    For me it's cringey and I didn't get used to it. Comedy in SM really dropped the ball, IMO. Comedy in SM(except Bewear comedy) really felt aimed towards toddlers.

    An aside, but this was likely done because it was more relevant to the contents of the main game. Specifically, it was more relevant to Hop's character arc in the story. It makes perfect sense in that case.

    Different strokes for different blokes I guess. For me, the Bewear stuff got old fairly quickly.

    Wonder how long it'll take for Leon to be flanderized into an idiot who gets lost all the time

    You'll be surprised how they may avoid that aspect of him altogether. Judging the number of episodes so far, I don't think there's enough time for him to display that silly trait of his.

    Sometimes, when something can be outright exploited, OLM simply looks the other way of the treasure chest.

    I'm sure someone's mentioned this by now, but I LOVE that they finally show walls of energy protecting the audience from stray attacks. That's been bothering me for two decades now haha. You could say it's just a facet of Power Spots but I hope it's something they keep from here on out, even beyond Sword and Shield if they can incorporate it in some way.

    Giovanni: Are you telling that besides being a rock and besides being giant, it's legendary too? That changed my life forever!

    I expected it to get old, but throughout the series they kept pulling that gag in more and more absurd ways which pretty much always kept it fresh in some way or another; Running on water, the Kiterugumacycle, jumping off a plane to grab Team Rocket in Kanto, "iya na kan--" "KIIIIIIIII!!!!!", the recurring gag of the dummies in the Ula'Ula arc, Nuikoguma showing up in various random ways after it was introduced, the greatest battle of all time in episode 114, the entirety of the "Matori comes to Alola" episode... I mean Kiteruguma wasn't always funny, but she was certainly funny often enough.

    How does Leon’s sense of direction relate to Hop’s character arc?

    And Pokemon anime is aimed towards....adults? Lmao

    It is primarily a show for CHILDREN. Y'all just have to deal with it.

    Read what I say: TODDLERS
    You do understand that toddler is, as Iris would say "littlier" than children, right?

    I'm not denying the Bewear stuff was absurd, but most of the times it showed up I was like "What the frick?!" in a confused way. Though I will say her appearance in Kanto was a massive red line for me tbph.

    Yeah, it started getting absolutely ridiculous when Kiawe Z Inferno Overdrived a stadium full of people (including many people in the battlefield) and only that one Metgaross got hurt

    I wasn't that into Leon and Lance's battle until they started dynamaxing and then I got pretty excited. I also think Charizard's dynamax form looked really good in the anime.

    Why do people have such a problem with SM faces lol. They can be hilarious and weren't as frequent as they are exaggerated to be. Plus yeah it could be good humor. Sure for some it was cringy but that doesn't mean it's for toddlers. Many people on twitter enjoyed those meme faces and made posts about them. Idk why people have such a problem with childish comedy.

    I think it's hard for people to accept that Pokemon anime is a show aimed primarily towards children, and SM faces just remind them of that fact. Hence the intense dislike for them. People who can accept the anime for what it is will enjoy the faces just fine.
