    I think they put a lot more effort in writing the Team Flare arc probably. Its certainly looking like the most intense and daring climaxes we've ever seen.

    I understand buddy. I personally think Sinnoh is really the best league despite Tobias. Heck, if Tobias and Tyson weren't there, Ash may have won the Sinnoh AND Hoenn League. I will agree with you, I felt the pacing of the Kalos League was off. Like, how are we at the last part of the quarterfinals already after the first round? That's definitely a head scratcher for sure. The XYZ series is great so far though, I won't deny that. In all honesty though, I think the staff could've treated this league better. I personally feel that the league should've occurred after the TF arc rather than the order we have now. Would that be interesting if that were to happen? I would think so.

    I definitely think so as well.

    This league did needed some work but it was decent for me. Whether or not we wanted Ash to win, the writers decided to go with Alain and I have accepted him as the league champion with no complaints.

    The TF arc does look really promising, but we (or at least I) have been tricked already on promising previews. I'm not going to hype up anything until I actually see it happen. For all we know the preview could once again be very delusional.

    Anyways, I think we (or more like I) need to stop talking/complaining about the league. After XY(Z) is over I'm planning to rewatch the whole league to see if my opinions changed after the heat died down (I doubt it, but who knows)

    Nothing can top evil Ash.

    No, not the fake movie one.

    It was prior to the final Frontier battle if I remember correctly. That was when Ash gets possessed by an evil spirit.

    He also got possessed by shadow Hoopa, for at least a minute.

    True, but that didn't really last longer than expected.

    My only gripes with the SInnoh League is the fact that they for some reason decide having a random scene with TR selling merchandise is more important than Quilava's FIRST BATTLE AFTER EVOLUTION. That's about it. The rest was pretty great other than Trollbias. Even then that gave its own redeeming factor in that Ash was the ONLY one to be able to take down Darkrai.

    Although the thing with Alain is that he's pretty much directionless with his desire. "I want to be stronger." But what for? Sure he didn't think about the League that much but him meeting Ash help him find his way. Charizard is the equivalent of Ash's Pikachu but it's a stronger species and has a Mega Evolution. But eh. I wanted Ash to win as well. So did some of the staff too. But since this is the internet... mean has anyone saw the preview vids? The dislike was 14k before they disable the dislike and like function! Maybe this will give the higher ups an idea that they should vary up on the status quo.

    Wait they disabled the dislike function?

    Saving face shipping poketuber and Japanese executive producer style!

    I don't think even Ghostbusters stoop that low.

    Oh, right, now I remember! I think this might have been one of the first episodes where the current voice actress took over.

    Thank you! This took up two minutes, two minutes they could have used to show Quilava's first battle. Quilava deserved better

    Quilava definitely deserves more screentime after evolving instead of 2 minutes of Team Rocket. That was a waste of screentime if you asked me.

    A shame Ash lost, but oh well. Did better than every before at least. I've enjoyed what I've seen from the league thus far, and I'm sure once I watch the rest I'll still enjoy it.

    Man, you people will believe anything someone says online.

    The preview on the TV Tokyo channel -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkDBCBiFsMs

    As you can see, you can still dislike the video, likes and dislikes are still there. You can always like/dislike a video on the TV Tokyo channel.

    What people must have confused it with is the official Japanese Pokemon Youtube Channel where the likes/dislikes are always turned off -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEI4Twq7uCI


    Seriously, do people actually think the staff cares about our opinion? That they'd be sad because some angry fan wrote a long rant and threatened to quit the show so they turned off the dislike bar to hide their humiliation? A lot of you guys need a reality check.

    Nonsense! This is a free world and we are allowed to let these people know what we think of them.

    If such notion was never a thing, this would be a bleak world.

    It's a tactic used by people who can't handle criticism on their views.

    So yes I didn't double check nor bothered to question, any problem with that?

    No problem, just make sure not to spread misinformation (God knows there's enough of it as it is). xD

    Practically anything involving Team Rocket is a waste of screentime...
