Is it just me who doesn't hate the fillers of Johto?

    I started watching the anime again after about ten years or so (I lost Kids WB around 2002 or so), and I actually enjoyed the Johto episodes so far. Not sure what I see in them that others don't seem to, but I enjoy the fillers.

    I haven't watched Johto for quite a while and so can't say anything, but I've seen other people defending Johto before. Besides, it's a big fandom- I'm sure there's someone else out there somewhere who shares your opinions.

    I love Johto.

    That said the general population doesn't like Johto for a number of reasons. Extremely poor writing, pacing, episode structure, and Team Management among the top offenders. The opening is pretty strong, and so is the Whirl Islands Arch, but sometime in between there's this feeling that Ash is drifting from place to place without any destination in mind. Granted, that was the type of structure I wanted for this Anime we have to remember that Ash is supposed to be training towards the League and he just plain didn't do much of that in the end. As a result we got one of the most interesting groups of weak Pokemon Ash has ever trained. The League seemed to handle it that way too with Ash largely relying on his Reserves to win his battles, especially Charizard.

    ... anyhow ...

    Like any other Region there were good and bad Fillers. We had Fillers like Little Big Horn, For Crying Out Loud, and Forest Grumps that are completely watchable. Then we have episodes where Ash and Co. stand around and do the bare minimal while the Character of the Day solves their own problem. That actually happened. More then once.

    No, there's also this guy called pokemon fan 132 who will slam you with a wall of text for hating on anything johto.

    Some of those were decent, it was just that there was too many.

    Lucky for me I don't fit that category

    I can see there was lots of filler, but I was still entertained, though.

    Johto had its share of enjoyable episodes whether they were filler or not. The same could be said about any region though.

    Johto League Champions wasn't nearly as bad as the second half of Galactic Battles.

    I LOVE Johto. The fillers are really great and memorable. Only episode I didn't like was LOL "The Whistle Stop" Anyways I enjoy the fillers but not AG fillers, those are boring.

    You didn't even watch much of the show past Johto, so why are you commenting on series you've seen nothing of?

    Wasn't that the one with the swarm of Ledyba? Not one of my favorites either, though it had its moments.

    As for AG, I'm not at that point yet, so I don't know how bad or good the fillers (or the saga in general) are.

    I enjoyed Johto a lot! The way I see it, I feel that many who complain do so because Johto was simply the first "long" series; people weren't used to it's casual pace. Many still aren't. But that doesn't make it bad. I think its great to showcase some everyday heroism. And if it's just not your cup of tea, that's totally fine. But from my experience personally, too many people disregard fillers instead of enjoying them for the simple entertainment they are.
     
  14. I've seen all OS, AG, DP and Chronicles episode, and a few BW ones, and I like the OS fillers, including Johto, while the AG ones seem less entertaining to me, and the DP and BW ones bore me. It's probably because I care more about the OS characters (Misty is there, and in OS, I still liked Brock, who went downhill for me in AG and DP, and I already stopped caring about Ash), but also because everything is less game-like. And I just like the Gen I and II Pokemon a lot. I can't really give one clear explanation, but I think the Johto fillers are fine, and better than the AG, DP and BW fillers.

    I never disliked Johto myself. I hated more of the DP fillers over the Johto fillers tbh.

    Dragalge This is more than 20 characters long

    I'm admit, some fillers were decent like Forest Gumps and Gligarman but the rest urks me. This is why Johto is my 3rd favorite overall saga.
     
  17. Probably not, by looking at the thread. But I watched Johto and found it boring~

    Neither is the person you're replying to~~~

    Johto is pretty good. I like Kanto much more but Organe Islands/Johto is good too. Hoenn is much worse and I don't even wanna know how much worse the rest is (but I will watch everything).

    Considering how obviously biased you are towards misty I really doubt it.
