Things To Expect From Shinou

Discussion in 'Animé Spoilers' started by DarkWobbuffet, Nov 24, 2006.

  1. DarkWobbuffet

    DarkWobbuffet BEEEEAAAARR!!!

    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.

    C.J. Ray I wanted Shaymin! :(

    Well done, DarkWobbuffet. You are pretty dark. However, many people will constantly set their expectations too high.

    The writers should just end this anime right here and now, since they've burnt out on good ideas. :mad:

    That's what I dislike about the anime fanbase. You all shun it and shoot down its bad ideas.

    Well, you know what? You could just stop watching it. I don't care what happens in the anime, I just watch it, and that's that. So no, they shouldn't end it - I'll always be watching it.

    Try to look at the upside. Shinji could act more like Sasuke from Naruto. He's friends with Ash, but still bosses him around.

    Ugh. Hopefully that's not true, and Shinji doesn't turn emo on us.

    Something to look forward to: Ash only catching 3 more pokemon till sinnoh's over.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Yeah, three if you're assuming he'll release something. He only has TWO slots remaining.

    Here's a guarantee - Continued endless b****ing by the fanbase!

    I think Aipom might leave a while after it evolves.

    We can only hope. Maybe it'll be replaced with something decent, then.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Oh yes, PLEASE. Nothing would make me happier. I don't even want the thing Oaked. I want it gone forever. (Unfortunately, something like that hasn't happened since Pidgeot, which was 9 years ago)

    F*ck i forgot about Mukkuru for a sec. Yea only 2 captures left. Sucks he only gets around 5 pokemon each region.
     
  12. Korobooshi Kojiro

    Korobooshi Kojiro Funnnngaaaaa

    Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Caterpie, Krabby, Muk, Pidgeotto, Tauros.

    Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Noctowl, Heracross, Phanphy.

    Treecko, Taillow, Corphish, Torkoal, Snorunt <<<< this is only region he got five.

    I know that he got a ton in Kanto but its slowly decreasing. He got 6 in Johto but Heracross wasnt around that long. All i was saying is it sucks that he doesnt catch more pokemon that go to Oaks. But then if he did that i guess they'd turn out like Muk,Tauros and Kingler.

    You know what's really sad too? These pokemon were among the most entertaining ones/strong ones that Satoshi has ever captured. Shame we saw them in only 1-2 battles each.
     
  16. S.Suikun

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    I know! Tauros and Kingler were sooooooooo entertaining and chalkful of personality! Corphish and Sceptile have NOTHING on those guys and aren't anywhere NEAR as powerful!

    Which Tauros are we talking about here? Tauros #12 or Tauros #27?

    Tauros #18 is clearly the best of the bunch, that one actually has real character, the rest are just rehashes of each other.

    In any case look at Ash's Pokemon lineup in the D/P opening, the entire space is filled by just those four Pokes. Ash is not getting a 5th Pokemon until the entire first D/P opening ends.

    Remember, he didn't get Torkoal till somewhere around 50 eps into AG.

    He didn't get Snorunt until WAY into Hoenn

    He got Aipom on his SECOND trip to Kanto.

    And, No, Tauros #6 has the most personality despite his disturbing past and long history of 6-tail Cancer.

    In regards to Kingler, Muk, and co., as long as they show some new D/P/ attack, I'm happy.
