Blame the director or whoever is at the top for basically earning a faulty writing degree from which everyone else below is suffering for.

It less about the animators being lazy and more of them suffering from a lack of real good planning by the leadership I charge of the series.

Mostly watching
There is nothing for Team Rocket to recap you Rocket hater

Oh by the way... Chance of Rocketness: SHUT UP ENOUGH

This will be the last chance of Rocketness untill Paldea

Time to end Pokemon Recap, put it to rest and dance on his grave


Who's grave is that? Is Mr. Burns?

I think people are assuming it was snarky based on the quote retweets from a bunch of people being annoyed.
Thats their fault then for google translating and taking it on bad faith
God knows how many people are willing to jump at their throats
Its more the animator telling the people to get the excitement back from the other older episodes they like if they are disappointed with recaps and not to watch them, which is fair

yeah, they basically said" try to enjoy these episodes, otherwise don't watch it" fair i guess

That moment I found a lifetime treasure
I just was told that Goh won't be there to cheer Ash against Leon, and that Goh gave away Eternatus to Leon? Is this true?
Hopefully ALL of Ash companions come back of he's going to win.

I don’t mind the recaps, but the quality of writing in older JN episodes hasn’t been to my taste either, especially with returning characters which is what this season is basically about, so...it’s not just the recaps but a bit of everything I guess, what bothers me is this hopeful feeling, like a constant waiting for a really good episode to come but it never comes cause the episodes that air don’t deliver and add a recap to that and well...it feels like something is missing

I don’t mean to say what is what or to criticize cause I don’t know, I‘m just expressing myself cause maybe somebody else feels the same way

I think it's fair to criticize the writing itself, there were issues from the start, even before the big production issues started. But being upset at animators about recaps and not recognizing that they're also victims here is totally unfair.

Also being disappointed by recaps/long wait is also fine, I think, as long as you're not going to Twitter and attacking the anime staff.

Yeah it's probably the Scarlet and Violet anime getting announced. Merch of the starters and their anime art is starting to pop up

Speaking as someone who can actually read that tweet... It does read rather snarky. "Well if you hate recap episodes that much, then wouldn't you be better off just rewatching past episodes and trying to relive the excitement that way or something?"
It, at the very least, has pretty strong "Leave me alone" vibes. Which, given the immense stress they have to be under and the reaction from the fandom as a whole, (I will defend my own complaining by saying that my ire has been directed squarely at the higher-ups for allowing things to get this far out of hand and that I do not put any blame on the animators actually working to try and salvage this mess) is absolutely an understandable stance to take but... sadly it's also 100% going to be taken the wrong way.

The problem is not having endless breaks and recaps, but not at least giving any explanation or apologizing to the viewers. Because this amount of breaks and recaps is not normal by any mean

It still doesnt read off to me as 'snarky' though
I still dont get why they said anything wrong
Everyone knows why recap episodes are a thing, yet they keep complaining for ages. Whats wrong with them literally saying rewatch old episodes to keep your excitement alive instead of watching the recaps you hate?
