Top Ten Reasons the Pokemon Anime Sucks
The Top Ten
The sound of Ash's latin spanish voice is making me homicidal. Pikachu this, Pikachu that. Mix it with Ash's childish and obnoxious loud never growing personality and you get a migraine for days.
It just keeps getting worse with this show ever since they got rid of the original English voice actors.
I'm not laughing at you, nor did I ever call you names, you are a hypocrite as you bash 4Kids for things TPCi has done as well, and in fact, TPCi has done worse on music replacing as well as intros than 4Kids did. The voice acting is also worse, no matter what poor defenses you make for the current dub. - MaturePerson
Ash Voice by Sarah is Getting Worse Since DP-BW now it's in the Current Run.
70% of the episodes revolve around three plots:
-this person/Pokemon can't do something properly
-this person/Pokemon has become lost/separated
-two sides who aren't getting along
It's the same thing over and over again, just with different faces.
It's literally the same thing every region they go to! Ash always starts out as a newbie in each region, he rarely uses some of his old Pokemon in the newer series, there are TONS OF POINTLESS FILLER EPISODES, and Ash always loses the Pokemon League! Pokemon has established itself as the Phineas and Ferb of anime, because it is so recycled and repetitive. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
You bet that it is. But I'd like it better if Team Rocket (except Meowth) dies. After all, I'm tired of those villains' obsessions, although I'm more fed up with Jessie's bad attitude.V 9 Comments
I don't understand why Brock and Misty had to leave, but Team Rocket had to stay. I'm getting tired of them, so annoying. - Smash64
You guys don't like the Pokémon anime because Ash and Team Rocket have appeared in every episode, but then get angry when they are booted off the show?
Would you rather have the same three characters for 20 years? *sigh* - furryfan8
YES, Pickachu won against a Dragonite but lost to the lv5 starter pokemon of unova
At least in sun and moon they do they own thing come on they are the best characters
Yep the worst part of this show - boltslegend
UHG and when they do appear, it's the same thing with the stupid and repetetive intro and the blasting off again. and they are 80 percent of all of the episodes, it just makes me want to rip out my hair
Actually, since the Black and White series, they don't appear in every episode.
I mean even if he is the protagonist he is still shown to be the average pokemon master there and when he is told of this fact from his friend, who always wears purple, he gets ticked off. Can't eve take the truth
This is worse than anything because it renders everything that happens before it in that region moot.
Why ash lost to Alain despite having type advantage
I love the games, I really do. However, I have lost every ounce of interest for the show. Why is is still going on? It should have been like just keep the gen1-4 seasons, make ONLY one gen5 season, and then can the whole thing since it’s pretty clear that the show is just an advertisement for people to try the games. I mean don’t get me wrong, the gen1-4 seasons weren’t too bad, I mean it’s not the best thing ever but it’s worth existing. But I can’t bear to watch or even think about everything else.
The show has many problems, such as not staying true to the games but even the good old seasons had that too, but it’s even worse later on. Recycling plots is bad too but then again for having like I dunno 1000 episodes then I guess it’s not too bad, characters being kicked off is fine as most replacements are characters from the newer games and so younger watchers could recognise the characters, the villains appearing every episode ehh...and bad voice acting ...more - PageEmperor
Yesss. I hate how even now people are like - Serena was the best, hope she'll return soon!
But for what? At least other characters gave Ash some nice battles, Serena is worthless though. They just want her for a stupid Amourshipping stuff.
Even though I hate her, she's only ruining post-Pokemon XY fandom, not the entire anime.
"Overrated" is more of a subjective term - yungstirjoey666
This is an opinionated topic - boltslegend
You mean negatively overrated, right? She is not that bad - SocialMediaStinksV 2 Comments
Ash really has no development whatsoever, and the worst part is that this isn't a series like Mario, where they aren't focusing on developing the series-they do that in Pokemon, and we're still stuck with the same generic character in every episode. - Garythesnail
Usually, when I see characters with goals, there's a solid motive, reasoning or history behind the goal. This makes me want to cheer for that character. With Ash I have no clue why he wants to be a Pokemon master. I can't really care for the guy.
Yeah mario may have the same save the princess plot line but they do their best to develope the series - Adventurur2
Lol, Bob Saget is much cooler than Ash.V 1 Comment
I've never heard of a series whereas the majority of the episodes don't revolve around the main characters. Your standard episode revolves around some problem which has nothing to do with the main characters, their goals or the lifestyle of being trainers.
The new characters are boring and the new animation style sucks. Also I liked when ash's hair had pointy ends better than this stupid new one with round ends, he also got a lot dumber because he goes to school - Yoshi
Best character in the anime by far. - Smash64
His running joke was funny for like the first three times. *annoyed* - furryfan8
They do starters to make them more popular
I have to laugh at these retarded Misty haters, Ash might of been the body but Misty & Brock were the Heart & Soul.
Oh shut up or do you like bullying fans of when it started, you wouldn't have the show.
Seriously - boltslegend
Genwunners need to grow up - SocialMediaStinks
I hate charizard - Yoshi
How boring would it be sweeping every gym and half the league though - boltslegend
We all loved charizard
SocialMediaStinks needs to shut up.V 1 Comment
They would be better if Team Rocket didn't appear, it just ruins them and gives TR all attention but, what about other villains? They don't get character because, of them.
Good thing we have the movies though.
Team rocket ruins it - boltslegend
(Tr)Ash: Pikachu used THUNDER on ONIX!
May: Squirtle! Used TACKLE on BANETTE!
Brock: Croakgun! POISON JAB!
SCIZOR Fainted - Veevee2k6
They should do something for 12+!
They have Pokespe (Pokemon Adventures/Pokemon Special)!
Why they didn't make Pokemon Special anime?
What you guys hate kids? Child abusers confirmed
The main reason why I loathe this "anime" (notice the quotations? Because this shouldn't qualify as an anime. It's a disgrace). - SelfDestruct
The only pokegirl I like
Why who gives a dam about the Pokémon center
Anyway and what the fxxx is
Brush, anime and games don't relate to each other. If that's what you're whining about, go watch something else. - TheEliteComet
Why do people dislike this. It’s not the games so don’t complain - boltslegend
I find it really uninteresting. The plot is the same all the way through.
Gets boring easily just...so many episodes
So... the Pokemon anime... has too many Pokemon?
Conclusion: you guys don't know why it's the Pokemon anime
THIS is another reason why the anime nowadays sucks! Cause there’s absolutely no likeable characters whatsoever! Seriously why put a floating robotic Pokédex with an annoying voice on the anime for good? Bring Clemont & Bonnie back! - TGBBOD
Perhaps u perrfer 30? - boltslegend
Shouldn’t he be like around I dunno, 30 or something? Oh wait yeah, he isn’t a human being. He’s probaby some weird creature from a distant planet where everyone has a different life cycle. - PageEmperor
Just doing the same thing, it's just pure lazy, even movies 20, 21, and the most lazy 22, I'm telling you it is based on the love of money, and no one gets it through to their heads that enough is enough. - TravisGould
They go as far as to wish death upon characters like Misty, Latias, or any female associated with Ashy boy. They have no respect for different opinions and they throw tantrums if you disagree with them or when they don't get their way.
I watched xyz last and still preferred Serena. Still wishing death opon misty is psychotic - boltslegend
When will you idiots just get over it? And get over YOUR obsessions with your precious Dawn & Misty just cause you hate Serena? - TGBBOD
Then, you might like Digimon. We have Digital Monsters who can talk human language!
Pokémon are (for the most part) based on animals, so it makes absolutely no sense that they say their names out loud. Why couldn‘t they keep the original cries (perhaps a bit modified), given that they sound a lot more realistic.
It's really lazy, the lip sync is the mouth then I goes smaller shuts and recycles it! It is annoying and lazy!
Disagree - boltslegend
I hate how this anime completely forgets the original plot points. - Smash64
Maybe his father died? Mewtwo killed him? or another killer Pokemon I dunno childhood is the past.
I think the main reson they never showed his father is because he probably does not have one. I think he was just some weird ailen who got thrown down to earth because his alien pals wanted him away due to his dumbness - PageEmperor
Just wait - boltslegend
When they were writing this season were they like "What is something every child loves and wants more of? " and then some other idiot was like "SCHOOL! " - ZachAnimations
When are we ever gonna see Ash with Raichu? - Smash64
Meh, he looks pretty cool to me.
No he doesn’t - boltslegend
The battle animation gets better with this - boltslegend
Gary Stu? He had flaws. He doesn't win every Pokemon battle. - yungstirjoey666
True - boltslegend
That’s a ignorant thing to dislike - boltslegend
This is by far the worst part of it all - boltslegend
Pokemon seems to be made to teach children responsibility with animals, but got spoiled by them instead, the creators got greedy and lazy with it as a result of Sloth, mental sloth. They cheat Ash every time because their too lazy to do something new. Movies 20 - 22 is even more lazier not given the Alola group a chance. One day someones gonna say enough is enough and force them to cancel to punish us for getting too spoilt by the franchise. It happen with Highlander because idiots put stupidity and draggy plots in the animated series. - TravisGould
