Ahhh, 'The Glory Days'.<_< To complain about how the anime sucks compared to 'The Glory Days', perhaps?
It's not that I didn't enjoy the Kanto series, but it's not the best thing since sliced bread.
Each series afterward had its flaws, too, don't get me wrong. Johto was long and didn't have too much substance to it (though, it does have its memorable episodes) and Hoenn/Battle Frontier had its share of ups (Contests, really cool characters) and downs (Thunder Armor as a means to win, Team Aqua/Magma plot coming to a disastorous end, BF not being portrayed accurately).
But yeah, people whining about restoring the three main characters again are just... fools, I guess might be the best term. And hating on May, Max, Tracey, and Dawn for replacing their precious Misty/Brock. e_e; I like Misty and Brock, but I never threw a hissy fit over their departure. Unlike most people, I'm open to new characters.
Seriously, having Misty come back permanently and booting Dawn at this point would be extremely dumb.
