The Unpopular Opinions Thread

Discussion in 'Pokémon Animé Discussion' started by PorcelainVulpix, Jul 30, 2019.

    The concept of Amourshipping is better
    But Pokeshipping was better played, both sides were clearly into the other and it wasn't in your face. Only mentioned every now and then, usually in funny moments too like Ash roasting Misty when she suggests to him she's attractive.

    The way they played Amourshipping, it was completely one sided and got old from how overplayed it was. They should have at least showcased Ash displaying some feelings towards her, along with toning down her crush

    J.Agera Don't push your luck.

    I mean Ash did:
    1. Invite her himself.
    2. Gave her a gift himself.
    3. Sacrificed his gym battle for her event.
    4. Often used to rub her his index finger on his nose around her, which is a known sign of nervousness.
    And he never did these for anyone else.
    It wasn't clear in the slightest.
    Although it can't be denied, he did show attraction but only during the orange island arc but then again, he could just be angry on the gym leader for not paying attention to the gym battle(Rudey?), that's it. And so many poke-shipping moments were dubbed by 4kids and isn't in the original Japanese version.
    That's not the case with Amourshipping.
    Amourshipping was the better ship.
    And that's all.
    This isn't a shipping thread so I think we should stop.

    ^youre the one carrying on though and not allowing them to express their opinions in peace which is kind of what the thread is about. It’s not meant to be a debate thread.

    Plus the scenario you’re talking about with Rudy happened with Danny too. He showed clear jealousy in the episode Navel Maneuvers. He also even showed jealousy in princess vs princess among Misty Meets Her Match. You’re trying to nitpick something you clearly don’t know the details of which isn’t fair. He showed attraction towards Misty in Ghost of Maidens Peak. There were only three clearly dub added hints if you count the jirachi wish maker thing,(the other two are the we’re getting married one day line and something about kissing) besides that, all the other hints are in fact in the original japanese including Tracey leaning towards being a Pokeshipper himself. The only other 4kids added crap were Misty’s ridiculous songs.

    Also you sound crazy with the “it’s the better ship” crap just like you did trying to force everyone to believe XY is the best series. I’m not doing the objective vs subjective argument with you again because its sound irrational.

    I actually agree with this! I sit and struggle to watch some Sun & Moon episode without being on my phone or falling asleep & I get bored so fast to the point I go back and watch older seasons (even B&W!).!

    Well, this thread was nice while it lasted.

    Here comes the inevitable shipping wars...

    It did made me appreciate BW more for what they did right.

    Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but i think the N Episode was actually better than both the AF arc and the Necrozma arc.

    ..and I always take the bait but hopefully this thread continues to be a safe haven for unpopular opinions.

    Well to change the subject then..

    I don’t think they should have ever messed with Ash’s eyes. They look so weird post DP

    I saw this picture of Ash having fish eyes...it’s one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen.

    Black & White had better animations than the old seasons, at least. Also, Sun & Moon’s animation is atrocious compared to B&W.

    It truly is.
    At least Ash actually had a full team in Unova, I'd welcome Ash having too many Pokemon over too less after his XY and SM teams

    Dragalge Why do you hate Lorde so much?

    It might have looked prettier (although art is in the eye of the beholder) but I prefer SM’s simply because they didn’t spam every spherical move they could find in the latter half of BW (so much Hidden Power!)

    SM is leagues better when it comes to comedy (SM gags being actually funny) and cast personalities (XY cast being overly nice to the point of it looking unrealistic) though.

    J.Agera Don't push your luck.

    Disagree. I don't find the SM series that funny, it seems forced most of the time. XY was funnier to me.
    And while the XY cast did have the "nice" personality, it wasn't unrealistic at all.
    Except Clemont, I think I have seen everyone, from the XY cast get angry at least once and I have seen everyone having a varied personality.
    You are telling the SM cast doesn't have that "nice" personality?
    Absolutely disagree on that.
    And why did you even have to bring XY into this topic? I think it's unnecessary.

    Dunno about that, i am not really a fan of slapstick comedy... Personally, i prefer tongue-in-cheek comedy like OS-Kanto.

    To be honest, i didn't find that unrealistic. I mean, there are places like that in real life where people are usually nice to each other, like Canada i guess lol

    XY is my least favorite series, followed by BW
    I think the Battle Frontier is the best season of AG and is my most favorite of the entire anime.
