Well, I've decided now that we're into the Shinou arc, I should do something about the complaints and rants by making a list of things we need to know will most likely happen in the anime, so our expectations will lower and maybe we'll enjoy the anime better. - Satoshi and Hikari will most likely not win their leagues. Even if they defeat their respective rivals, they'll still get beaten in the very next battle by the Hiroshi/Hazuki/Tetsuya/Saori that they meet upon reaching said league. - Cuteness almost ALWAYS wins, no matter how fully evolved or powerful the opponent may be. - Lots of filler episodes revolving around single new Pokemon. - The plot involving Team Galaxy will be introduced and resolved in a total of 5-6 episodes. - No matter how strong Satoshi's team gets, at one point or another it'll be upstaged by his Kanto starters. - More fillers revolving around single new Pokemon - Shinji will become buddy-buddy with Satoshi by the end of the league, despite how cold he currently is to him - Fillers involving Pokemon we've seen a million times before. - Lots of bizarre Nyasu fantasies about using a random Pokemon to please Boss Sasaki - Even more fillers revolving around single new Pokemon - Pikachu will be used in most, or not every gym battle, no matter if he will be helpful or not. - Don't get attached to Takeshi's team. You'll hardly ever see them, aside from maybe Greggle doing his "keeping Takeshi away from the girls" gag. Well that's all I can think of right now. If you have other ideas post em here.
