View Full Version : It's Really Not Funny Anymore

For the first episode, it was funny. The next few episodes, it wasn't as funny but still comical now. Now I'm just plain annoyed by it.

In almost every episode, Piplup gets hit by Draco Meteor and i really don't find it funny anymore.

It just makes me hate Gible. Is it so stupid, it STILL can't control it?

And it seems like nobody in the show seems to care anymore, but poor Piplup.

I think the writers of these episodes need to stop with the nonsense and actually get gible to master it, and stop this stupid gag.

Anyone else with me?

No, I love it for some reason >:3

It might be because of the excellent sound it makes on impact, or because I think Piplup is an over-confident, annoying prick, but,
for whatever reason,

I like it.

I liked it too. I actully just said yesterday morning they are starting to bring the humor back into the show.

In the episode where the "heroes" meet Gible for the first time, I laughed, a lot. This has never happened for me in the entire series. I really hope this was a sign that is humor coming back to Pokemon. (Even if Piplup keeps getting hit).

If you watched the Japanese episodes, than you'd know how I felt.

They're gonna repeat this gag A LOT. XD

I cannot stand Dawn's Piplup so I've got no problem with it buuut I don't watch the anime much. I can see how it would start to get old, fast. D:

As much as I hate Dawn's Piplup, I agree. It was funny the first time, but after seeing the EXACT SAME FRAMES over 9000 times, it's gotten quite tiring. It's unfortunate that Gible can't master it.

On the same vein, I'm kinda happy they innovated it by having our winged friend come to Piplup's rescue whenever Draco Meteor is about to hit it.

I absolutely love Piplup getting owned since I despise it so.

Yeah, I also laughed. A lot ! :D
I just hate Dawn's Piplup. It just gets waaaay too much attention, while her other Pokemon get neglected. Plus, when he wanted to evolve but got rejected, I got really, really annoyed.

So yeah, it still seems funny for meh ! >:-) Plus, who doesn't enjoy "We're blasting off again !!", huh ?

Same I haven't laughed this much watching Pokemon for a long long time

I feel like soon, it's going to be expected in an episode, like Team Rocket blasting off.

It can't be any more annoying than the very existence of piplup, it's just annoying.

I like it, because the stupid thing (Piplup) gets too much positive attention, (second only to the Rat Itself) and not enough abuse.

You don't watch the anime much so you wouldn't see the gag much to begin with.

At least it gives some sense of continuity and we -can- hope that Satoshi will try to train Fukamaru so that the gag eventually stops, but c'mon, whining over this? I call DP-bias. And honestly? When's the last time we had a funny Pocket Monsters running gag? Hell, we get one of the most interesting Pochama-based episodes ever resulting from this gag a little later on in the series. I'm not complaining.

Funny, well, that's what I think of all the piplup annihilations. Love every single one of them, really. It's awesome to see Piplup take an ego-check.

Nyu~♥!

That was probably the funniest episode I've seen for years. 0_0'
When Piplup was trying to dodge the meteor it was so funny.. bouncing around XD I was laughing out loud XD

However, I was watching an old episode on the site today, Holy Matrimony!, and it was SO funny. James overall, is probably one of the most funny characters, at least back in hoenn, johto, and kanto.. not anymore. I hate his new voice. I think the old James is cute and funny XD

I can see where you're coming from.
But I don't like comedy.
But it really isn't funny anymore.

See I despise Wesley...I mean Piplup. I mean I loved Dawn getting Piplup at first, but then it got really annoying. I mean I actually got annoyed when Togekiss showed up and started stopping the Draco Meteors...

Oh wow Akio, I think I remember you o.o Hi ~ Anyway, I agree, Draco Meteor hitting Piplup got annoying fast. Yeah, Piplup abuse is nice, but it's just giving Piplup more screentime that I don't want it to have D: Yes, I would actually prefer it to become dead and ignored. Poor Pachirisu and Buneary :(

it's ac completely random point but did anyone notice in the old days how the character model's of Ash, Brock and Misty and the rest of the main charters including the Pokemon seemed to vary from episode to episode(they they were drawn in other words) or is it just me??

We haven't gotten that far in this country yet, but I have to ask: What could possibly be bad about Piplup being constantly bombarded by Draco Meteor? I really like penguins, but the Piplup in the anime is just so annoying. I usually don't mind out-of-the-ball pokémon, but hes just taking up too much screen time.

They apparently keep doing it over and over and over again. A great comparison would be to Team Rocket getting blasted at the end of almost every episode.

Sounds kinda like the new Vic/Carni biting gag. Which Gible actually sometimes does too.

What I can say about it, is that a season that's been running for god knows how long has to have something. Then again I always talk about how pokemon is a just cycle of the same things. Ash catches a poke, fights a battle, chara of the week, gym battle, contest battle, league battle. All of that jazz.

I like Gible... Piplup need a good blasting...

And some episodes still make me laugh. Like the one with the evil Togepi a few weeks ago.

I actually like Piplup's suffering by Drago Meteor.
This is one funny thing, which Piplup gives us.
