Why is the Pokemon anime so great?
>>
good animation
never ending story
good if you're immortal
bad if you have the lifespan of regular people who just want the faggot to accomplish something already
>>
because they need to lure kids/furfags into buying their merch and games
>>
>>166581238
Because you have an animation-fetish, that's everything what's good about it.
>>
It's not. You just haven't seen actual good anime due to a mental illness.
>>
>>166581268
just for me!
>>
Too much filler.
Especially the times where they slow down the generation's plot just to wait and see what the third game is going to add so they can do that instead.
>>
>>166581238
because you are underage
>>
>>166581238
its pretty good if you separate each gen as its own anime rather than an overarching story.
>>
Extremely cute girls
Great openings
Great voice acting
Fun episodes
Cool creatures
Nice music
Exciting battles

What is there not to like?
>>
>>166585221
>Cool creatures
teen thread?
>>
>>166585322
Teens don't watch pokemon

>>166585055
This. Each series tells the story of a boy who’s good enough to get into the leagues, but falls short of winning because he’s still not good enough and must get better.

It’s only when you put them together that it becomes the story of an eternal loser doomed to fail in each and every of his endeavors. Speaking of which, now I shall remind you of pic related.
>>
>>166585357
You're playing catch-up? Just because you never watched it as a teen. Makes sense.

I sometimes watch for the animation. There's quite a bit of sakuga in the franchise, especially the movies, which got some revival on booru and it's nice to see.
Also, XY was a lot of fun. Too bad the threads weren't.
>>
>>166581238
I hate the fucking HUGE contrast between the anime and games. In the games your character is a fucking prodigy EVERY TIME, becomes champion easily, and captures god pokemon. Ash carries 1 pikachu around 8 regions and still can only win 1 league. Is he cursed? Does he pikachu reset to level 10 every region??

The kalos league champion did absolutely nothing wrong.

How so? Those are kids shows too, just like Pokemon. And they are accepted here.
>>
>>166586878
You only think this because you watch the pokemon anime as a physical adult. Prove me wrong. You're just bias.
>>
>>166586767
the games are easy because children don't like challenging games
Ash sucks so that the anime can continue forever, because children have a bottomless appetite for garbage
>>

Read the manga if you want a series about young prodigies who achieve their dreams,Except for rockboy and his waifu they only get suffering the same goes for X and Y

Because neither have their own board. Same reason why you rarely see any mecha thread here.

I dropped it halfway through the Johto series, but picked it back up by watching XY. Pretty shocked at how decent it is, and the animation in some of the fight scenes.

Yes. That is exactly what I was implying. You're not denying it either.

Can't we just stop fighting and admire the anime's and movies' animation? Myself, I just saw this
https://www.sakugabooru.com/post/show/42874
https://www.sakugabooru.com/post/show/42882
and I immediately downloaded the movie. The animation is crisp as fuck and the artstyle is just clean enough to give a very positive vibe.
>>
>>166587264
Okay then. Sorry for jumping to conclusions, my bad. Then you should know children's anime (and I don't mean young adult anime like Bleach or Naruto) are never really accepted here.
>>
DP was peak development and league
XY was peak battles and production values
SM is peak characters and Pokemon (and comfy)
>>
>>166581238
No it's not. Ash is a faggot and can't win a league ever.

Shounenshit like Nardo and Bleach were looked down on, and the former outright semi-banned from being discussed at all, in this board before the cancer took root,

You're just being obtuse for no real reason. I've already explained you the difference between children's anime and anime for young adults. You can have the rest of the conversation with yourself.

/a/ has always loved Bleach and Naruto. Nothing you say will ever change that. They were some of the best shows in their genre.

I swear you need to be a full on autist to still enjoy this show past the age of 12. It's literally the same shit every episode and every season. All the characters are flat and the battles are too simplistic.

I mean just think of all the things you could have done with the time you spent watching a show for babies.

Why do you say "even dragonball"?'
Dragonball has some of the most progression of the big ones.

Are they still doing realistic screams or did they abandon the idea?

This argument was utterly trashed when the Black Clover anime came out and it was amazing to see happen.

I wouldn't even want that argument in series I like

at least "fun things are fun" argument is about acknowledging that fictional mediums are for entertainment primarily

>great animation
Since when? Asides from the movies, the anime is on the level of Family Guy when it comes to animation.

>great artstyle
I mean it's perfectly fine for a kids show but it's nothing to write home about.

>great OST
If you say so but don't you get sick of hearing the same tracks in every (or every other) episode.

>great battles sometimes
I'd ask you to name some but even if there are some decent battles here and there, it's not worth sitting through countless episodes of mediocre schlock to get to them.

>>
>>166588883
>watching Pokemon past a certain age
It’s literally made so that kids will outgrow the series, to be replaced with a new generation of 8-11 years old kids who will watch it for three or four years until they themselves outgrow it as well.

It was shit before they decided to simplify the designs in Alola.
>never ending story
It's the same story over and over again. Zero character progression (done on purpose to keep getting new generation of kids to watch the show).

>good if you're immortal
Good if you're a kid. The Pokemon anime is made knowing that it won't hold the attention of people for long, it's just an introduction to the franchise so you buy their games and merch in general.

>bad if you have the lifespan of regular people who just want the faggot to accomplish something already
He will never accomplish something incredibly great as they need to keep resetting him for the next season.

What? Beside the super obvious scenes done by key-animators, it's as shitty and cheaply produced as you'd expect. The new, simplified art style was a good call in that regard though.

>>166588883
>You sound like someone who hasn't watched the anime since the first season
While it's true I haven't watched the show in years, my fondest memories of it are probably from the Indigo and Orange Island seasons but that's probably because I was a child when I watched them. However I do remember catching quite a few episodes of the show during the Advanced and Diamond & Pearl seasons around the time when I was in high school and it was here when I realised just how dull this series is for anyone who isn't a drooling autist (and trust me, I was autistic af in high school).

I mean I just don't get it. If you still enjoy watching Pokemon as a grown man, you'd probably still enjoy watching Teletubbies or some other repetitive show for toddlers.

I'm pretty sure those who say Pokemon doesn't have good animation are just shitposters who haven't given a fuck about the series since they were little and can't resist the occasion of shitting on the series everytime they see a thread on /a/.
