    Welcome to the 4th installment of the Pokemon Anime Face-Off!

    Currently: Favourite Moments [Click here for rules]

    This is a thread where Face-Offs related to the Pokemon anime will be hosted. We host Face-Offs between the characters, episodes, seasons, battles and so on. Usually I'll host but other people can host their Face-Off ideas (or just make suggestions) here too as long as we're not playing more than one Face-Off at a time and you clearly state the rules and gameplay format.

    - keepitsimple
    - Dragalge

    General Rules and conduct
    - No essays. I don't want my thread filling up with pointless debates anymore!
    - All SPPF rules apply
    - All rules to the current Face-Off (which will be linked at the top of this page when the game is ongoing) apply

    The rules to whatever Face-Off we're currently playing will always be linked at the top of this post.

    Finally, I don't mind people talking about the show here. As long as you join in the game as well, the thread can also kind of serve as a chill thread to talk about the anime without a specific set topic.

    (No longer relevant)

    Right now the series face-off hasn't finished, and since the old thread is dead, we'll quickly finish where we left off before we move on to hosting other Face-Offs here. Here was the score total when the thread died. By this point, Advanced Series, Best Wishes, XY/XYZ and Sun and Moon had all been eliminated:

    Original Series: 57
    Diamond and Pearl: 3

    Add one point to one series and deduct a point from the other. When one runs out of points, it is eliminated.

    I'm here now!

    Anyways, this next round will work like the Western Cartoon Face-off in which you get to nominate your favorite episodes from the Pokemon anime! Here are a few things to note before you get to nominating:

    - You may nominate any Pokemon episode as long as it has been dubbed outside of Japan.

    - You may nominate up to four episodes max.

    - To promote some variety, a max of four episode from each series (OS, AG, DP, BW, XY, and SM) are allowed to be nominated. For example there already are four OS episodes nominated, you can't nominate anymore episode from that series.

    - In addition, while I won't enforce this, try to mix up your nominations from different series! Of course if only one series remains with no nominations, then go ahead and nominate some episodes for the series that got left in the dust.

    - Nominating Pokemon movies/specials (mainly Chronicles but the ME specials are fine) isn't allowed

    - Like the Western Cartoon Face-Off, you can only vote once every 12 hours. The first episode to win the round moves onto the next one.

    - Have fun! And hey who knows? Maybe the episodes nominated may pique your interest! So prepare to duke it out!

    Anyway here are my nominations!

    I'd be nominating a lot more OS episodes, but I don't want to be a douche by making all of the possible OS nominations so for now I'll just nominate these,, and maybe later I'll post my others

    Nice! Now we just have two spots open for AG episodes, two spots for BW episodes, one spot left for an XY episode, and one left for an SM episode.

    We just need one more person to nominate 4 episodes and then I'll post my last two nominations and we can start!

    Maybe @Genaller is interested in nominating the last two episodes of the anime that will compete in the face-off? If not, I'll do it.

    (If you do, one has to be from XY and the other has to be from BW. Or you could just nominate one episode and I'll do the other)
