Pokemon Anime Face-Off V (2 Hour Cooldown)


site of lies
Welcome to the fifth installment of the Pokemon Anime Face-Off! I mean I likely won't keep this open for very long, but welcome anyway!

Currently: English dub opening songs [Click Here For Rules]
Next: Ash's Unova Pokemon

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 I'm not including chronicles or the movies leave me alone. Not robbed.
- No I'm not including Japanese songs or ending songs leave me alone. Not robbed.
- Wait exactly 2 hours or longer between voting.
- The deadline is April 13, 3:00 PM EST. If that already passed, you can't vote any more. And then I'm tallying
- The song with the most points after the tally (Assigned one for each upvote and deducted one for each downvote) is the winner and that's it game over go home you bother me. Even if it's a tie.
