I'd like to see how you justify bringing one pokemon to a gym battle (which would have required him to put everything in rotation except Paliptoad and Pikachu) and forgetting the sex of his Snivy as "Ash trying something new"

Unless the "new thing" that he tried is huffing paint fumes right before a gym battle, I can't imagine what it is.

So kis how’re you gonna handle the whole multiple noms in 1 category? I’m guessing you’d either have to give a reminder that it needs to be narrowed down to 1 nom per category before the deadline or in the interest of fairness you’d have to count it as fraction votes (e.g. if 3 members are nominated for 1 category by the same member, then each of those nominated members only get 1/3rd a voting point rather than a full voting point).

Also mehmeh1 while I’m incredibly flattered that you’d nominate me for 4 categories (Most Contributing, Best Debater, Best XYer and Best post/Quote), you can only nominate 1 member for up to 3 categories, so unfortunately you’ll need to replace me with someone else for 1 of those categories.

Best Quote/Post: @Epicocity ->
No, I don't enjoy the direction SM has moved in at all, and not because I'm one of those people who disliked it from the beginning.

In fact, I enjoyed the first 21 episodes. The humor was well-placed, and the story was heartfelt. Post-21 it took a dive off a cliff, at least writing-wise. Animation-wise, no one can argue how much it's improved, but I believe it's misused. That's not the overall reason I dislike it, though. I'm no animation buff and don't pretend to be, but I do write and I know how to analyze writing.

So, when it comes down to it, there's one word that I feel sums up SM perfectly: inconsistency.

Inconsistency to past series. Inconsistency to its own characters. Inconsistency to its pacing. Inconsistency between intent and portrayal.

I'll sum it up what I mean in the easiest way possible, and a lot of that comes down to what the series decided to do: stay in one place. Inherently, this isn't a bad decision. The problem is that they didn't work for it.

Ash isn't the type of character who sits around, but is now content with it. Ash isn't a character who does school, but now he is. The anime never took the time to explain to us why this was necessary for him. It was necessary for them, in order to tell a more slice-of-life story, except Ash has been around long before then, and now he feels like a completely different character because they've outright removed his wanderlust without giving us any justification as to why. This is no more evident than in Ula'ula, where Ash acted understanding one episode and fearful the next; coming from the same character that showed no fear with the more violent Chimchar. Had they built up an actual reason to have Ash stay here, however, I think the series as a whole would make more sense and mitigate a lot of the inconsistency.

But that's only one of the problems that comes with the stationary setting. The other is that pacing is arbitrary and progression is arbitrary; inconsistency. Ash only goes to take the trials when the plot tells him it's time. Of course, one could argue that in the last series it was the same, but there was still a sense of forward progression because they were moving towards a location. Not so, here, and it makes Ash seem lazier for it. Not only that, but as a result, plot points just come out of nowhere and happen. Rarely is there any buildup, a buildup that can at least be eschewed and explained away in previous series by it not happening because Ash and company need to arrive first. It makes Melemele, the smallest island in the games, feel like a City of Adventure, while every other island has jack going on.

This arbitrary and inconsistent measure of progress impacts the characters, too. Lana and Kiawe are by far the most developed but receive little screentime, and Kiawe himself is inconsistently portrayed whether they need a stoic, spiritual badass or a goofy, over-the-top caricature. Sophocles and Mallow are sadly pushed to the side (though Sophocles can at least hold his own episodes). And Lillie...well, she's the ultimate version of fake development whose story was clearly intended to have us sympathize with her but fell flat thanks to Lusamine's vastly more sympathetic portrayal. Not to mention Lillie hasn't even changed in character at all, other than touching Pokemon (something she didn't even work for outside of a few instances that were negated) but continues to be pushed as the most important classmate.

By making the one decision to stay in a single location, it affected everything across the board because the writers clearly didn't know how to handle it or justify it.

It really comes down to this: SM can be enjoyable, but that doesn't mean it's good. Or even if it is good as an anime, it's not good as a Pokemon anime. Because it stripped away the adventure and the wanderlust and replaced it with 2D Pokemon, poor foreshadowing, large plot events that feel like filler when all is said and done, characters that are stuck for 50+ episodes and pop culture/anime references that never populated the series to this extent.

TL;DR Sun and Moon doesn't feel like a Pokemon series and is inconsistent with everything that came before it, so I can't enjoy it.

I never left but I do find it funny how every Tuesday you’re bashing SM but have the audacity to whine about people discussing Serena or XY in a negative light. You must be a special type of person. You don’t like what Pokémon is showing? Don’t watch it. You don’t like people talking “bad” about Serena or XY ignore it. Nobody’s putting anything towards your head to keep this misery you got going on
