I remember the good old years, with enjoyable characters such as the super-perverted Brock and idiotic Team Rocket. While the show rapidly lost its status as an amazing show, it didn't turn horrible UNTIL Black and White showed up. This season, the writers made fatal mistakes. Brock was removed from the storyline COMPLETELY, replacing him with the annoying, food-obsessed Cilan who is probably the worst character. The arguably charming puns for each episode's title were almost completely taken out. WORST OF ALL, Team Rocket became SMART.
TEAM ROCKET IS SMART?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!! Yeah....... I don't have to say much more of this.......
Almost every TV show has at some point in its life became the greatest it could ever become. But since the producers just want more money, or they are just obsessed with the whole Pokemon franchise, they keep going on and on and on and on...
There is a very dangerous stage that any TV show can be exposed to and this process usually happens after the show has reached its maximum greatness. This process is called "milking".
This process is notoriously known for degrading any TV show when its producers, and/or even audience, want more. It is a sad road for any TV show to go through - reaching greatness and slowly losing it through the harmful process called "milking".
Everything in life must come to an end some day. Pokemon has existed for over a decade.
If it is time for Pokemon to rest after over a decade of hard work, I'd say that enough is enough.
Pokemon (both the show and the games) were a national phenomenon. Millions watched the adventures of Ash and Pikachu while at the same time having their own adventures on their Game Boys. Now, they have lost their touch completely somehow. The show has become annoying and repetitive. Ash wins just about all his battles and with Gary gone it seems that no one can defeat him, he needs a new rival. And I see Ash as selfish at times: all he cares about is going to each town just to get a badge and move on, not caring too much about what his group wants. Ash's little friends are too dependent on Ash, ot seems that without him these guys would be lost. The episodes are SO predictable it is not funny: They visit a place, meet new people, Brock falls for the pretty girl there, Ash has a battle with the new people (and wins), Team Rocket tries to steal Pikachu, they fail, and Ash moves on, with the occasional life-threatening crisis that is never too hard for Ash to single-handedly deal with. I remember the days when Team Rocket was a real threat, now they are useless. Why can’t they win every once and a while? The people at Pokemon need to get their act together, before its too late.
Every series of Pokemon is the same! Ash has to beat all 8 gym leaders, and take on the Elliet Four! Everytime he takes the Elliet Four on, he loses! That is just sad. They do this every single series. I mean what are they waiting for? An inventation? Just end it already! You want Ash to be a Pokemon master, and you keep making him loses everytime! They better make Ash win the Elliet Four in the Pokemon Black and White seires, because that series sucks! Also, stop changing the cast of Pokemon!
In the first you have Ash, Brock, and Misty.
Then, you remove Misty and replace her with May (I like May)
After that, you replace May with Dawn. (I like Dawn)
Finally, you replace not only Dawn, but Brock with two new characters, Iris and Cilan.
Also, those anyone notice Ash's voice in the current series sounds like a...girl?
Right seriously what happened? Where is the Pokemon that I used to know and love? Hell! Where's the Pikachu I used to know and love?
In the past year I have got back into Pokemon. I abandoned Pokemon along with the rest of my childhood around the end of season 3; I was at the time somewhat annoyed that nothing happened with the mysterious GS ball. The original idea is that the ball should have contained Celebi, which would be released by Ash and then would sort of follow him around on his journey, kind of like a pro version of Jigglypuff (another thing I miss; Jigglypuff). But yeah, that's why I left the world of Pokemon.
Now I am almost 20 and I got back into the anime after many a dedicated hour I spent catching, training, battling and the like in the various Pokemon games. I decided to return to the anime and thought I would start at the beginning and work my way up to the current season.
The start of my plan went off without a hitch seasons 1-4 were amazing, ok a little repetition but what do you expect from a kids show? Still it was good. I experienced some difficulty in the transition between Misty and May, cause let's face it Misty loved Ash and Ash like Misty as much as a 10 yr old boy can like a girl. I remember the last few minutes of season 4 when they're all parting ways and Ash cries; I admit I was quite choked myself.
Anyway as season 5 progressed I came to accept May's new place in the gang (I hated Max though). That aside the show was still watchable and the Pokemon still had some originality. As the Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald legs of the anime progressed I began to once again enjoy Pokemon.
Then came the Diamond & Pearl parts to the anime, this is where it started to lose itself a little, repetition had become much more frequent, the intentional use with Dawn's bike obviously evident just didn't work. Although the diamond & Peal series' wasn't great it still held certain "Pokemonic" values. I mean Ash matured some and we saw this, his Chimchar evolved and learned how to control its blaze there was a sense of Pride. Now of course I would have preferred Ash to annihilate Paul to the point of no return but that wasn't going to happen, we all knew they would end up as friends.
I should also mention that whilst I was watching all the series I also watched the movie in the correct order, now I liked most of the films. however there is one fatal flaw and that is that they never have any impact on the anime, actually that's wrong sometimes they do i.e. the 1st pokemon film has the Mewtwo returns follow up special episode but really there's nothing. Ash is apparently some chosen one saviour of the world type and nobody cares, not even himself or his Mum or Prof. Oak? What the hell? Seriously Ash must be the only 10 yr old who's saved the world or some kingdom from disaster soooo many times that it's not even worth mentioning.
I could rant for hours about some of the plot holes in Pokemon. But I won't cause we must remember that Pokemon is a kids show, so plot flaws come with the territory. No instead I shall complain about the monstrosity that now holds the Pokemon name, yes I speak of Pokemon Black & White.
This is where Pokemon has just failed I feel. Both the anime and the games have fallen short of their predecessors here. Practically all the new Pokemon look like they belong on some other show (digimon) or are just bad. Ash is a complete douche and Pikachu (the real star) is a complete weakling. I read in a discussion thread say that they weren't counting any of the previous seasons now except season 1, but this isn't true. Both Ash and Pikachu made it to the top 4 of the Sinnoh league and managed to take out one of the League victor's Pokemon (Darkrai). It just isn't right that Pikachu got beat by some kid and his starter Pokemon in the first episode. Even if they weren't taking season's 2-13 into account Ash was still in top 16 at the Indigo League.
The Pokemon that we all knew and loved is gone, looks like we'll have to go back to watching reruns or hope that they realise their mistakes and return to the original idea.
Of course there's some fan made videos that aren't half bad if you know where to look and don't mind subs or poor dubs. Of course search fanmade Pokemon videos and you'll no doubt get porn, not that I have an issue with porn but sometime it's just not what I want.
My rating being a 1/10 is strictly for Black & White and the utter rape of the Pokemon name before then it would be a solid 8/10
If I could give this a rating of 0.5, I would. I absolutely loved this show as a child, I'm in my 20's now and Ash Ketchum has not changed one bit (aside from his now annoying voice). It is extremely nerve wracking to watch this anime. I told myself when Black and White came out that I would give the anime a shot. I saw all the new pokemon and was like "What the heck is this thing?!" Then came the anime, I totally hate Cilan and Iris. Cilan is the most annoying because he has to be a connoisseur for EVERYTHING! And Iris, she annoys me by telling Ash how much of a kid he is all the time; of course he is a kid, he is still 10 freaking years old!!! In any case, I am done with the anime, movies, and what not...I will however still play the games because they still keep me entertained for the most part.
I've read that the creator doesn't want Ash to grow up and honestly I think Ash should age more than 10 years old. I even know a young child who likes the old and the new Pokemon and he liked the idea of the main character growing up as well. Maybe they can try following some of the manga more or experiment with different story lines. I like to see more episodes than involve the human and Pokemon characters development by giving them new challenges that encourages them to bond with each other like the older series used to do.
Pokemon has been on for many years now and it is doing the same concept over and over again: Get all 8 badges, capture different Pokemon along the way and help them to, and attempt the Pokemon league and fail. Even though they do this all the time, I can still enjoy the show, and learn about the new Pokemon. Not the best show ever but its still good. :D
Pokemon is a Show that I used to just love as a Kid! But if you think about it now! The 4kids Dub did pretty Bad with Pokemon from Season 2 and Onwards, though Season 2, they were mostly just okay, cause it still had the Creepy Scenes and Decent dialogue, but that's when they had so much of those corny titles like "The Underground Roundup" "A Scare in the Air" "A Way Off Day Off" and "Hello Pummelo"! WTF... It's an Anime it shouldn't be Corny, not only that but the Acting got kinda poor up to the Orange Islands! The Real Disaster is with Season 3 and onwards cause in the 4kids version they always have Corny Titles, even more than before and the Dialogue gets to friendly and unintelligent, Creepy scenes are mostly gone and now they even get the moves wrong up to this point like from Sand-attack into mud-slap and from Karate Chop into Seismic Toss; seriously!!?? Wow, 4kids they really screwed up they didn't get any better they just got worse and worse through each season! Trust me watch the Japanese Version in Season 2 and above cause it's a lot better! And for the Movies! The first one in 4kids was Good, and I am stunned that the 2nd movie was also pretty good in 4kids, but as for third one and onwards then they sucked with 4kids in japanese the others are much better! Though I do personally adore Wobbuffets Voice in 4kids, it's just so amazing for him! And as for ech season well it goes like this!
4kids Season 1: 8.5 (Great)
4kids Season 2: 6.5 (Okay)
4kids Seasons 3, 4 & 5: 3.5 (Bad)
4kids Seasons 6 ,7 & 8: 2.5 (Terrible)
And then viz media takes over from 4kids failure! Though they did the episodes when pokemon was going downhill anyway just by how boring the Repetitiveness got so it still did'nt make much of a difference!! Well atleast ash sounds like he hit puberty in season 9, atleast! But I would say that in story Seasons 1,2,3,4 & 5 are the best! not really the ones above and espiacially not beyond Diamond and pearl cuz it just gets worse in best wishes, completely dead to me after season 13! -_- So that's it advanced series and battle frontier were just okay in my standards and diamond and pearl was a wreck and as for best wishes, oh don't even get me started on that! So remember watch seasons 2,3,4 and 5 in Japanese not 4kids! Good Day! :)
Actually I don't really like the way anime is going but I'm not gonna blast my frustrations because I respect this anime from bottom of my heart for been there when I was a kid. I have given up on anime long time ago but I still enjoy watching this when ever I tuned at this on TV. For me I can still enjoy this anime like Tom and Jerry. And for some strategic battles.
First five seasons of this anime was great, very creative and i love to watch it again and again. Whole casts were awesome. Especially i love team rocket jokes. But after that Pokemon lost some creativity like repeating same incidence again and again. (the way ash met misty, may and dawn) but at this point Ash has changed too his motivates at the first was to catch every Pokemon he saw and become the Pokemon master. Through Joto and Shinoh, he changed from being arrogant jerk to mature, more strategic Pokemon trainer. With same story line and new villains. *Pokemon rangers, contests, legendary stories, strategic battles, etc...*
I think it's time for Pokemon creators to concentrate more on anime and take this anime to another stage and start to make this for adults because the history about young kid are getting old now.
This is the reason why Pokemon is dropping viewers.
We all need grown up Ash, Strong battles and more like adults.
Thanks for been their when I was a kid. Proud 90's kid :)
I used to watch pokemon when I was little. I used to come home from school and race to the tv and couldn't wait what ash, misty, and brock would do next. I used to love the humor team rocket gave and how brock was always funny with the girls. Sad to say that Pokemon has gotten a little old and I think they should be only making games now. I mean it is the same thing every episode and even the gym battles are boring. I feel as though each time Ash goes on a new adventure he is like starting back to square one and i know that Ash has a lot more experience when it comes with pokemon and battling. I am sorry but Pokemon is not the same as it use to be
(Note: This is my review from Season 1: Indigo League until Season 8: Advanced Battle because I didn't enjoy Battle Frontier and I stopped watching it after that). I loved Pokemon growing up. The show, the games, the trading cards and everything else in between. I remember when the Pokemon anime series first started. I was pretty much the happiest kid alive. It was so entertaining. Except in season 2 when they introduced Tracey Sketchit. He was one of the most pointless characters to exist. However, the Orange Islands seemed like a pretty cool place (I wish you could go their in the games). Ash, Misty & Brock were the definitely the best characters (I know it's predictable to think, but this is the 90's we're talking about). The Johto series (S3-S5) introduced another 100 Pokemon which I was really excited about. And then more during the Advanced Generation series (S6-S9). I really wish Ash's character grew up though instead of staying 10 for fifteen years. I guess an 18 year old Ash wouldn't have been great to hang out with a 10 year old May though. Same with Ash being 20 and Dawn only being 10. That would be kind of creepy, lol. Enough of my review, Pokemon WAS my childhood and I'll never forget about it. Hell, I STILL play the games. There's no shame in that, haha.
I do agree things have definitely changed, i'Il also agree that I wish Ash had also grown up with his first fans, it would have been great to see his "REAL JOURNEY" this said I believe had the writers have done this they would have never been able to completely and totally remain a children's anime because as we've grown we've viewed things more realistically. I watched cartoons like inuyasha, Wolfs rain, yuyu Hakusho, and so forth. Imagine pokemon more real, serious battles, wars with the enemies, epic fights it would be awesome i agree I'd be in love for ever. I for one wish this was the way things were, but theres always a younger generation who is new to the show, and honestly kids are where the moneys at. Its children that helped give Pokemon its Reigning position. Like yea we'd watch the cartoon and love it , but what about the toys, dolls, movies, games, coloring books, pencils, erasers, notebooks, bookbags, costumes, the list goes on, we wouldnt even think of purchasing 90% of those things honestly, they're just playing it smart.
I watched the movie trailer to Black and White 2, it was so cool, I couldn't help but wish they'd end 10 year old Ash and start pokemon a new with those new characters and that type of anime based work. Maybe an adult Ash could make a cameo, along with some of the other characters.
Oh and I loved May, she was way better than Misty , who was a bully, overly bossy, and a brat.
May was confident, courageous and made good choices when in battle, well in time she did. we got to see her journey from the beginning which was great. That girl would give Misty a run for her money!!!!
I have seen so many shows out there that have been too repetitive. Examples would be Johnny Test,Phineas and Ferb and Fairly Oddparents. But I know I said this with P&F,but this is a bigger example of repetition I have ever seen. I will never know why this is still around. And it's Pokemon. This show is about a kid named Ash Ketchum,who's dream is too become Pokemon master. There is nothing I can describe about this show,because every season is the SAME FREAKIN THING. I mean,Ash loses the tournement,next season,he loses again,next season,he loses again, And that's the entire show. Nothing changes at all,except the setting and Pokemon. The characters from first season,Misty and Brock, were great,and didn't need to change if the show ended after 2003,(The guy who replaced Brock in 2000 was a good character too). The new seasons with May and Max were OK,but I did enjoy Max's characters. Diamond and Pearl was when the show went COMPLETELY downhill. Dawn was a horrible character,and was WAYY different from Misty. Black and White is officialy the deadline for Pokemon. Iris is the worst female protagonist in Pokemon history that she makes Dawn look like Misty. And on top of that,Brock was replaced with another guy,AGAIN! Here's an idea:Why not replace Ash too? He's been trying since 1998,and yet he keeps failing. Team Rocket are also crappy villains. They keep failing at trying to steal Pokemon,but they are always never give up,which they should. Also,why doesn't anyone recognize them for their disguises? Are these people braindead? And plus,Meowth is a annoying character,and not even Wobbafeutt,can save them. Speaking of the Pokemon,they look so recycled in the new seasons,and are not original. Ash is also a horrible protagonist. Also,shouldn't he already be a Pokemon master? He has saved the world many times,and was even called "the chosen one" once. So what the purpose? Just overall,Pokemon is not good at all,it's not likable in the new seasons. If you want to watch Pokemon,watch it from the years 1998-2003,or even the 2005 seasons. But it's just complete BS now,and it's so overrated
Yes, we get it, this show is repetitive. But I say, who cares? If you have been watching it as long I have been, you don't care if the show is repetitive, because the show has always been repetitive. Funny that people only realize that now.
The first two seasons were definitely the best ever made. And I watched the others, but when Misty left, I literally started crying for an hour because it just broke my heart. My first favorite character was gone. But when May and Max came in, I was slightly disappointed, but I still watched the show with enthusiasm and an open-heart. I guess I looked forward to every season because I wanted to see how the anime would adapt what storyline the game had.
Iris and Cilan aren't that bad. I actually like them better because they have deeper characters than Dawn, May, and Max did.
However, I would like to see them age. When I realized that Ash was forever going to be 10, I also got disappointed because I wish that as I aged with the Pokemon series, they would too.
Plot: Ash Ketchum, a 10 year old boy, who settles on an neverending journey to see things and astonishing Pokemon's nature and their abilites. This plot made a lot of flaws and conflicting mistakes. For example, his mother wasn't mentioned for a lot of times! Isn't his mother looking for him right now? He told his mother that he will go for a journey. He's already going for too long, and I don't see him giving his mom a call or some communication. He didn't even said that he will go for a very long time, I think it's years already.
Characters: The old characters from the old Pokemon is the best, but the new ones, has a role of a 5 yr old. Voice acting is good when it comes to voices, but on their dialogues, they suck so much, it's kiddish, repetitive, and getting annoying!
Action/Humor value: Those things are good back then, Now it's just repeating itself that it gets old and down.
Art: Nothing changed except for effects. I like their old effects more.
Overall: 1.5. They should stopped this at "Johto Journeys", because they added alot of spinoffs already, but they didn't do anything to clear those plot-conflicts. Anyway too much spin-off is to bad IMO, making the show, anything, cluttered up.
Uhh... I could go on and on about this show. Face it, it's not entertaining. All the story plots are the same idea every time and they have made WAY too many spin offs of it. This show is as cheesy as it gets. It's funny when this show tries to be funny. Overall, this T.V. show stinks.
i want generations of kids to watch this cartoon but i just want to know why cant they just let him grow older in age, it will surely attract more people into watching it. everyone is tired of seeing the same 10 year old. i love Pokemon but it gets annoying now. just let him grow older, end the season and start it again in i dnt know 10 to 12 years or so, just make a season of him being 16 damn. FROM A TRUE POKEMON FAN
I absoultly do not enjoy Pokemon. I did like it when I was in second grade (1999) through the end of third grade (2001). I started liking it again when I was too old for it from 2003-2004. Now I finally gave up on it because I found out that it is meant for people under say ten years. Not only I don\\\'t enjoy the show, but I don\\\'t really like anything associated with Pokemon. I hope Ash will become a master of this thing soon and this show will be doscontinued.
Man, this show has really went downhill in the past few years. And there are also some things wrong with it. First of all, there were 150 Pokemon in all. Now, there's over a million bazillion gazillion! What's up?? Second, this show has also sucked since Misty left. Now it's just May and Dawn. I don't like them! They're boring! And third, Team Rocket's getting a bit annoying. They always want to steal PIKACHU. They can't catch another one? I hope Diamond and Pearl is the last series in this Pokemon nonsense. It's getting silly!
I loved the Pokemon series ever since I was 9 years old and I'm surprised to see how bored I am of watching it today. It was only good up to the 3rd season. Why didn't they stop after Johto?
Here are the things that get on my nerves:
1. The same annoying Team Rocket since the second episode. Their puns and sayings aren't funny and they get in the way of everything. Why the hell do they try to capture that annoying electric rat? Wasting trillions of dollars on worthless machines won't get you that weak creature. They are better off with capturing Entei or some other legendary. They should win for once or get off the air. Even their pokemon are annoying. James is such a fag with his Chimecho and even if Wobbuffet is my favorite pokemon, I hate to see it with a bunch of losers. There is an old saying, those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
2. Pikachu should be at level 100 by now and it keeps getting beaten by weaker creatures.
3. Pokemon should be about battling not wasting time with helping weak creatures. Pokemon are for cock-fights and nothing else.
4. Why did they get rid of Misty? She is a true hotty and is one of my favorite characters. They had to replace her with a bunch of immature brats. May is a lousy trainer and Max is an annoying kid that is better off with Michael Jackson.
If they want to keep this franchise going, they have to do something new. It would be funny to see this show with porn and Ash making out with Misty. This show is so insipid as it is that it needs to be spiced up.
pokemon was my LIFE when i was a kid, id get up EXTRA early and grab every single pokemon stuffed animal i owned, put it on the couch and would play the GBA games till it came on :D, my only wish now is that it had been more like the comics based off the games (which i bought and read recently ((dont knock it till you try it)...team rocket were ACTUALLY evil and the story was more of a...story :)....anyways!, the newer season were a piece of CRAP! i hate when mt lil' brother and his friends watch it..so irritating
the games (all of them really) were/ are pretty fun and the comics were good,and the first seasons (kanto/jhoto) were great, if only it had ended there, the continuation just gave it a bad name for itself
This is a great anime. By the way, the episodes are not repeating..Even the battle strategies are awesome in new series when compared to old series where the stragies are easier.. proof: In kanto league ash haven't win all the badges fair and square.. some gym leaders in indigo league gave him badges without fair fight. But in diamond and pearl episodes, each and every battles(including contest battles) are awesome.. In new battles it is difficult to strike the opponents pokemon. Those who comment bad are those who have not even saw the new battles and claiming on misty,misty,misty for silly reasons.... She didn't do that much battles.. but may and dawn have superb skills on battles.. Each season brings strong and cool battles than before... Ash and dawn's friend ship is great.. Dawn and may's battle in grand festivals are mind blowing.... Ash's gym battles and the tournaments are also so difficult.. further it is not a show for kids. It is an interesting and great show for all age people... Above all It gives me more courage and when i watch the battle, i will watch it with so much curiousity,, It is a greaaaaaaaaaaat anime and i love it
I've been a fan of Pokemon for a long time.I've been watching it ever since it first came to the US up until about 2010.I'll be honest the show is great for kids 4 to 10 but if your older than that you probably wouldn't enjoy it as much as a young child would.The show was great when it first started off it was really unique at it's time.The first few seasons were the best but after the character Misty left is were it's brilliance slowly started to fade.If you've been watching the show for as long as I have then you will start to notice a pattern.In the beginning of every season Ash and Pikachu are off walking somewhere and pikachu zaps a girl's bike.This will be the girl that will replace the one from the previous season.Ash catches some new pokemon from that generation and the new starter pokemon of that generation will end up being caught by the main three characters.Team Rocket tries to steal someone's pokemon but fail then go blasting off again.Team Rocket comes up with a ridiculous disguise and Ash and his friends are never able to tell that it's them even though it's clearly obvious it's Team Rocket.I'm not sure if Ash is forgetful or just stupid.Team Rocket has been coming up with plans to trick them since season one,yet he is surprised every time they rip off their disguise.You'd think he would have caught on by now and would have learned to be more aware of his surroundings,but nope he's obviously learned nothing from his experiences with Team Rocket. On top of that they aren't even real villains,they're more like an annoying bullies than villains.
The characters are bland and don't really have any real personality besides wanting to win a battle,desperate to get a girl and making their pokemon look pretty.With a good show you can usually connect with a character in some kind of way or find them lovable.With pokemon you can't really do that.The most lovable character in the whole series is Pikachu just because he's a cute little electric mouse.But you can't really get any emotion out of the characters unless it's one of the first 4 Pokemon movies.
The new pokemon look ridiculous.Ice cream pokemon,trash bag pokemon,a bull with a giant afro?The pokemon Bouffalant just looks like a 70's version of a Tauros.it's obvious that they are running out of ideas.Some of the Generation 5 pokemon don't even look like pokemon.Some of them look like digimon and others look like Lilo&Stich characters that took a wrong turn on their way to Disney Channel.
The show is just too predictable.It would be better if it wasn't so repetitive and the characters had better personalities,but it's honestly not as good as it used to be.It's been dragged on to the point were it's not even funny or interesting to watch anymore because you already know whats going to happen in pretty much every episode.Like I said it's great for little kids but if you want a show that will always keep you on the edge of your seat then this probably isn't the show for you.
Yes it's a children's show but that's no excuse for it to be so predictable.You can have a show for young children and have it actually be good without it being super repetitive.There are good children's shows were the characters aren't extremely gullible and have real villains.And some of these shows are aimed at a much younger audience than pokemon and have better thought out episodes and characters.It's just sad how this show has turned out.
I honestly don't know why I even bothered watching the show for so long.I guess it was hard for me to let it go because I've been watching it almost all my life.I feel like the show is just being dragged on now it really isn't interesting anymore when you keep using the same stories over and over and over again for every season.I have nothing against the Pokemon games but unless they're going to try to make the show more interesting it needs to be put to rest.
When Pokemon season 1 started years ago,and i watched it,I felt,Damn,this rocks.I watched it up to season 3 middle,and started on season 4.It made me realize something.The show was on its road to be crap.It's the same story everytime.Hell,ash is still 10.How is that even possible,I mean,it must have been at least 2 years according to the anime timeline.Not to mention that the story is always the same.He starts with Pikachu,goes to some new region,fights gym leaders,goes on one of his too hyped up adventures,only to lose to his rival once and to get hiss butt kicked by somebody in the semi finals.What is up with that guy?He always has two companions with him,a girl who's got some hidden quality,and a boy who's a gym leader.People have started to notice this and are now moving away from pokemon.Unless and until they spice up the story a little,i think pokemon might be done for.
