Things you miss about the old Pokémon anime (early anime)

    I also liked how no one was purely comedic relief in OS and that everyone could be the butt of a joke.

    Instead of just Ash.
    Yeah, I miss that too

    It had an energy, edginess, and emotion (and insanity) we haven't seen since. Oh, sometime they come close, or at least try, but it's just not the same. As well as some unique, interesting concepts.

    Lots of things posted here are more like "90s anime stuff" that you don't see in modern anime.

    That's the problem I have with Pokémon anime (and franchise in general), it follows the trends at cost of its own identity.

    Particularly during SM from my viewpoint, where it followed a lot of cliches seen in other anime series like Yokai Watch for example. I don't like slice-of-life storytelling in general and prefer seeing more traveling involving the main cast, which is why I liked OS and the other older sagas a lot more.

    Not to mention way too much gen 1 representation nowadays, at least it's somewhat exceptable currently with them being based there... but still.
    Too little gen 2/4/5 rep :/
