I haven't watched the Pokemon anime in a really long time, did they ever have another good series? I only know that they changed the animation style after all these years and they gave Ash a love interest or something? What do you wizards think of this series?

I only ever saw the very first two series as a kid (ended on the 2000 movie), but then watched Best Wishes a few years back.

It was enjoyable. The shenanigans were all the same and I really liked when early gen Pokemon were featured. The Pokemon had more personality than the in the earlier series, feeling more like characters instead of just animals. The animation was decent for a weekly anime but some scenes had extra details. Dent and Iris were unique in there own ways. I don't remember there being any love tension or even hints at anyone being more than just traveling partners, so it was good if you don't like the love interest trope.


Isn't sun and moon supposed to be really bad? Blue haired succubus is cute btw.


I heard the complete opposite, but because of actually changing things (usually for the better) you have people who don't handle change well that got super bent out of shape.


People who hate S&M are usually people who are still mad about X&Y or they're just normies who haven't seen the show in a long time and only complain because muh nostalgia.


Watching old clips of the first series brings back memories and nostalgia like you wouldn't believe, such innocent times.


It was the first anime I went full nerd on.
Like it wasn't the first anime I watched (speed racer) but it was the first one I became a total fanboy of. Like for my birthday I wanted a Pokemon cake and all Pokemon themed stuff but no one knew what the fuck Pokemon was yet because it just came out and didn't become a full on fad yet. I got a Gameboy exclusively because I needed to play Pokemon. Hundreds of cards. Got that electronic Pikachu pet thing.
God I loved Pokemon so much as a kid. It just hit this spot in my heart and soul like nothing else right at the right time in my life. I was around 10 (just like Ash) when the show was being aired. Seen and was interested in some of the collectables in the asian shops a bit before the show came out but didn't know yet what it was.

From then on I embraced the path of the otaku and never looked back. It was my gateway into love of Japanese media and eventually Japanese culture in general.

From the bottom of my heart I am thankful for Pokemon.
It will always have a warm place in my heart.


The three gateway animes back then were Pokemon, Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. Nowadays I imagine it's JoJo or something.


The first series has so much soul, it's such a blast to rewatch it after all these years. It's a bit cheesy though I'll admit.


Cheese is good though. I like cheese as long as there isn't too much of it


It's amazing how incompetent Game Freak became later on.


In what way?
I haven't played any of the games since they made the jump to DS so I am totally out of the loop.


He's mad that a children's game isn't pandering to the hardcore fanbase.


all pokemon games are shit, they are all the exact same thing rehashed over and over again plus they even try to scam you and make you buy the same game twice with their "red & blue" and all that color crap


Perhaps you just aren't the intended audience? I think they are good but I do dislike Sun and Moon.


I had good fund with Sun. The secret is not playing the games the same way everytime. I roleplayed as an insect type collector and would only catch and use insect types. I never played focusing on insect types before in any of the other games. Had a great time doing it that way. In fact the last game I went in trying to catch'em'all was Emerald I think. It gets too exhausting doing it like that.


So they are incompetent for doing what works for them with slight improvement and making improved sales/profits each time?
Whatever dude.


I never said they were incompetent, I said the games are a scam meant to milk you on two games worth of money with little effort put into new gameplay systems.


Then why did you reply to my post then?
I didn't ask for your opinion, I asked for the opinion of the guy I replied to.


>don't reply to my posts unless i ask you too!
lmao look at this fucking diva


Please quote where I wrote that game freak is incompetent, or don't, because I never wrote that, moron.


Read the thread and don't butt in without considering context idiot.


Sun & Moon is the Buu saga of Pokemon, it's following up a series that was more serious and dramatic with a more lighthearted and comedic tone to it. Love it or hate, you have to admit, it did breathe some new life into a tired old franchise. I'm interested in the new series that's supposedly going to be a reboot or something?

Why are they naked?


cause it's hot


So which series' are actually worth watching and which are skippable?


That really depends on you and your personal taste.
What gen of games do you like the most?
How much can you tolerate more or less the same simple formula?
What have you watched so far?


worth watching
>The Original Series (up to the Indigo League, drop it when they go to the Orange Islands)
>Sun and Moon
Skip the rest. Even the Indigo League is honestly pretty terrible but it's quite funny and has a lot of nostalgia if you grew up in the 90s.


Lads, I'm thinking about watching Sun & Moon, I've seen some clips and it has that feeling the original series had, where it was more about the characters and the fun times rather than endless battles. Also, it has some pretty cute succubi.

>atleast we still joke about it, we call it "the incident" and joke about how the janitor was gonna make me clean up the mess myself and how the statue was a "one of a kind" item
I'm still kinda traumatized from all that happened years later though, I decided to eat more cautiously and i never pigged out on junk food late at night ever again after that. Sorry for the blog post I just realized.

Did Sun & Moon have the best looking succubi in all of Pokemon? If not, which one?

It had a busty ghost witch mommy and a happy sukumizu imouto. Everything the body needs.


Lana/Suiren is so lovely


Yeah, her and Mallow both won people over very quickly.

That looks like German TV.
I would kill for a TV program like back then. With the whole marketing style behind it, it was perfect brainwashing and I'm still feeling love for that, call me stupid.
They had heartfelt professional dubbing and localized German theme songs who stand the test of time.

Now the same TV channel broadcasts scripted reality bullshit where people insult each other.


I stopped watching pokemon like in early 2001. I barely remember the orange islands arc and the league, last things I watched


I miss these succubi and Alola so much. Galar has been kinda boring so far.


Which game is better, Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon? Might get one of them since my local GameStop has a bunch of 3DS games on sale.


File: 1577512361667.jpg (57.59 KB, 400x316, 100:79, 1577432640926.jpg) ImgOps iqdb




I feel like in about five years, people are gonna look back on the Alola games with fondness.


As much as people praise Lana, she's got such an outputting design that I can't get behind. The game version of her is better; bit more spunky and cocky.


Why do people worship gen 4 so much? That was when I started losing interest in Pokemon.


I think gen4 is the first pokemon games for a lot of people. My very first game was Special Pikachu and to me 4 is exactly where I began losing interest. 5 was absolute bottom for me then it begins to pick up again. 8 has one of cutest pokemans in the whole franchise. Haven't played the newer one yet and I think I won't be able to for financial reasons.


Gen 5 has the worst designs and when they were really scraping the bottom of the barrel. I hear that gen 6 was better, but I had completely stopped paying attention to Pokemon by then.


People only hated the gen 7 anime because it strayed away from the original formula a bit; and now it's back to the same old thing for gen 8.

>people hated the new style in SM and called all the reaction faces "cringy"
>meanwhile they're fine with the same shit in the new series and they're "used" to the animation now


I have a feeling that there's going to be little to no actual exploration of the Galar region in the new series. So far, Ash and Go have been in Kanto, Hoenn and soon to be Sinnoh. I really hope they space out the region hopping a bit more, just because it'll become stale fast at the pace they're going.

That being said, it's already more interesting and entertaining than Ash goofing around on a Hawaiian island for three years.


Sun and Moon is comfy, but it's pretty slow and can be very uneventful.

Current series has been decent so far.


People can complain about it until the end of time, but Ash WON a Pokemon league! This isn't like orange islands where it's all filler, Alola is 100% canon. It may not have been the most competitive or top tier league, but it still counts.


Where can I find not shit subs of the Japanese version of Sun and Moon? Fuck the dubbed version, shit is pure trash.


Why would anyone get excited for PM's region hopping gimmick? It's a fact that once a series ends, all mention of past Pokemon used and characters met become erased. Look at the recent Sinnoh episode as an example of this: it's like Nintendo completely forgot what it looked and felt like. People who expected all these cameos and guest appearances from every season, don't actually realize how the anime truly works.
>the big shitstorm that happens when Ash goes to Kalos, and all the nerds rage when there's no mention or reference to Serena or Greninja
>the amount of salt that would spill if when Ash goes back to Alola, and not only does he remember what the region even was, but they have his friends cameo

The PM series feels very gimmicky to me; it's like they knew the Galar region is small and uninteresting, so they threw in the region hopping aspect at the last second, just to add padding. I also find the characters so far aren't too interesting, a lot of SM's charm was in the character development and the slice of life aspect. To me, this current series just feels like a half-baked idea that was rushed out to meet the anime deadline quota.


I can understand why people don't like the gameplay, but Gen VII had some of the best characters in all of the series.

I also think Lusamine was a good villain, the child abuse aspect and just that whole arc in general was quite mature and dark for a kids game. Too bad the Ultra series watered her down quite a bit, and the ending was a bit of a disappointment.


I believe Mao/Mallow is supposed to be Polynesian or something along those lines.


I love how Suiren is very friendly and approachable on the surface, but she's much more intense, craftier and smarter than she lets on.


Just finished playing Pokemon X, it was alright.

I liked the French inspired region, but the story was kind of meh.


The final episode of the Sun and Moon dub aired today, still no word yet on what the new series dub will be like.


Misty = Asian/Western mix
May = American white succubus
Dawn = Asian Japanese
Iris = mix of brown/Native American
Serena = French
Mallow = Hawaiian or Polynesian
Lana = Chinese (her outfit resembles Chinese clothing)
Lillie = German or Russian. Lusamine and Gladion looked like they were going back to the motherland. Lillie's snow outfit also resembled Russian clothing.


The last one aired in Canada today.


I love Suiren, she's the cheery jokester of the group. She's also pretty darn good at most things, and can be pretty bad ass too.


I liked how later on in Sun & Moon, she became the favorite succubus for the writers, so they gave her way more dialogue and screen time. Compared to the first half of the series, where she and her family had very little to do.

Suiren sort of became the main succubus once all the major arcs that involved Lillie were finished. I do love Lillie too though, she's easily the most emotionally invested character, and she's absolutely adorable.



Type: Wild is such a good song


>Iris = mix of brown/Native American
I think she's Indian, as in India Indian. I assume most of the brown people in Pokemon, barring the obvious Hawaiian and Okinawa settings, are meant to be Indian, at least in X/Y.
I've seen some Japanese artists assume the same for the water type gym leader in Sword/Shield.
>Lana = Chinese (her outfit resembles Chinese clothing)
I don't really see it. But I've seen people say the same for Rosa.


Nowadays it would be Jojo or MHA. I'm not really sure what else, I want to say Attack on Titan but it looks like that really plummeted under people's interests a long time ago.
Also there's one generation missing, the Naruto and Bleach days of the 00's, but I guess most of those people grew up on Pokemon too.


I'm so happy that they're going back to Alola! I'll definitely have to catch those episodes.


I'm gonna start the Sun & Moon series, sub or dub?

It's officially been one year since the end of Sun & Moon's syndication, I gotta say, I miss that series quite alot. It had such a distinctive, different feel from any other Pokemon series: the atmosphere, the music, the sceneries, it felt so relaxing and laid back. The characters were all very likable and were fleshed out quite a bit, you really felt like you got to know all of them. The somewhat recent episode of the new series where Satoshi goes back to Alola was nice, definitely nice to see that series is still canon and wasn't immediately forgotten by the time the new arc came about. Can't wait to see more Alola in the future!

Platinum was successful for the most part. HGSS sealed the deal by being a near perfect remake unlike ORAS. As >>32249 said, I lost interest after I saw GenV Pokemon and being based around shit york and have not played another game since.


Tried watching the old 4Kids dub for some nostalgia, it was painful. I can't believe kids watched that stupid crap (myself included)


The latest episode of the 2019 series involving Alola was trash.
None of the characters you cared about were there, it was a boring experience to boot as well.


OK, fine. Which thread is it permissible to post pokemon images in?

> You were issued a warning! ;_;

> for the following reason:
> off-topic/not an image dump thread
> Your warning was filed on Saturday 28 August, 2021

I posted three images of sonia and nessa with no comment.


We have a cute succubus thread going on this very board.


1. you can upload 3 picture per post
2. if you lurked a bit you would notice people here don't generally spam threads with porn unless that's related to the topic


Thanks, I'll use that one on your advice.

P. Lainchan has multi-image uploads without JS but this site doesn't, both vichan descendents. Some of us choose to browse with remote code execution disabled.
Q. I posted images of pokemon characters in the pokemon thread. >>37682
R. None of the images were porn. It would be much more constructive if you commented on what actually happened rather than burning a random strawman.


>None of the images were porn
it was softcore lesbian porn, don't kid yourself
