General Character Discussion
As Character Discussion & Shipping closes its doors and merges once more into the main PA forum, we are left with a bit of a mess and with the sense that there is something... missing. To fill the void, I introduce to you this!

General Character Discussion

The goal of this thread is to house topics that would die off quickly as their own thread and to promote a more dynamic discussion focusing on characters in the Pokémon anime. What should go in this thread are 'chit-chat'-y topics. For example, "Cilan being scared of Purrloin is funny" would go in here, but "What do you think could have happened to make Cilan so afraid of Purrloin?" could warrant its own thread. With a shorter title, hopefully. Then again, if that sort of speculation ends up in here, that'd be fine too. It's probably best to let the conversation go on normally, as long as it's focused on the anime characters. Shipping discussion is also welcome in this thread. As with the old Debates thread, please do not flame people for shipping. Debates are fine, wars are not.

Thread Rules

- Abide by the general PC rules and the specific PA rules. Basically, use your common sense.
- Keep on topic, both the one at hand and the general one of Pokémon Anime Characters.
- Try to keep episode discussion and speculation in the appropriate threads.
- Cover your plot spoilers for anything the English dub hasn't gotten to yet.

Let's crack on, then, and begin with something easy. Favourite non-main Unova character and why?
For me right now it's Stephan. Because he's fun and really nice and also awesome~ And he gets along really well with Ash. I like that they can be good friends and still take each other entirely seriously on the battlefield.

My favourite Character is Cameron. Even though he appeared quite short in the sage I really like his strong Pokes as well as his unique character in which he forget's inmportant things

Anna April 7th, 2013 10:37 PM

Ooh Cameron's a fun one, yes! I'm glad he's not around all the time though; he'd get tiring fast. xD; Also his design reminds me very very strongly of a character from some other anime that I just can not pinpoint and it's been bothering me since I first saw him aaaa. I miiight be thinking Lan Hikari for some reason but who even knows, man.

Well he really is a tough cookie. I think I saw his character design similar to the hero of ongoing Beyblade series

Anna April 8th, 2013 10:26 PM

What, not Tyson Granger, surely? He looks more like Ash than Cameron, I swear.

You mean the character of Beyblade 4D? or whatever the series name is?

Anna April 8th, 2013 10:46 PM

I was looking at just regular Beyblade, but I guess you're talking about Ginga Hagane from Metal Fight Beyblade or whatever the flip this is?

I can see the resemblance to Cameron there, yeah. Although I wouldn't have known him at all had you not pointed me to him. Cameron still reminds me of someone I can't place at all. It might just be Lan and I'm overthinking it, but I really have no clue haha.

XeroNos April 9th, 2013 10:25 PM

Yeah that guy looked like Cameron for me. By the way I say you should also start a particular thread about a Character's profile or some thing like that

Anna April 9th, 2013 10:36 PM

Mmm... I don't think so. There was an option to do that when we had the Chara&Ship forum, but it never was used. Honestly those kinds of things would just take up space. And why bother when you can just hop on over to Bulbapedia anytime?

XeroNos April 10th, 2013 10:49 PM

Well I see now what you mean Anna. Well any thing new to discuss in this thread?

Anna April 10th, 2013 11:04 PM

Ehh there's always XY character spec. ^__^ I really really want Cilan to come along oh my god he needs more time to develop ;__; the writers have given him so little compared to Iris. Although, fair's fair, Ash hasn't been getting much for development this season either. :(

Euphonium April 11th, 2013 2:24 PM

Oooh.... X and Y characters? Who would I like to see? I might want to see a new character in X and Y if Iris is replaced and all.

Anna April 11th, 2013 2:40 PM

Ah but who? The female protagonist? A gym leader? An anime-only character? The new protagonist is totally a fashionista. How would Ash deal with a high-maintenance girl after being with Iris for a while? Also, she'd probably make a fun coordinator. I hope contests will be back. Or something similarly fun~

XeroNos April 11th, 2013 11:03 PM

Oh and maybe they will introduce him here in the anime before even Ash heads to the new region. You know they all appear previously in Pokemon Leagues

Anna April 12th, 2013 7:58 AM

Wait, introduce who? The new protagonist(s)? The new rival? And when would they- maybe a Decolora League or something?

XeroNos April 12th, 2013 10:33 PM

Yeah a new protagonist from the next region. But I really did not meant Dekorora League. Man it is making me Blush...:P

Anna April 12th, 2013 10:43 PM

I dunno... maybe they'd appear early, but in what circumstance? Would they just meet Ash randomly and be like a character of the day in Decolora and then end up running into him later in XY? Would they be a somewhat experienced trainer, or just a kid on vacation?

Oh man this reminds me somehow- you know who should have travelled with Ash&co for a few eps? Nonomi. Aaaa she was such a cutie. <3

Jake♫ April 14th, 2013 10:50 AM


I'd love to see the X/Y female protagonist make an appearance, but that's kind of just from an aesthetic appeal to me.

zdude18 April 14th, 2013 2:22 PM

They probably wouldnt go down this road, but it would be awesome to see Dawn return and do contests in the new region. Unova lost some of its spice because there werent contests IMO. Lets see maybe ash dawn and a new dude. that would be amazing

vaporeon7 April 14th, 2013 2:52 PM

If they did have the female protagonist, I'd like her to be experienced like she was in the B2W2 trailer. Tear things up with Serperior.

Anna April 14th, 2013 2:53 PM

Jake you better be coming back here a few times and not just coming in to kill me. D:<

I do hope contests return, but I don't want to see Dawn back besides maybe a cameo. She's had a very full run already- if she came back I'm sure she'd start to get as stagnant as Ash.

I'd like the XY girl protag to be a coordinator though! She doesn't even have to travel with Ash&co, she can just run into them at the contests Cilan his girl companion is doing. The protagonist becoming a rival~

@Vappy Mei should totally show up in Decolora. <3

vaporeon7 April 14th, 2013 2:56 PM

I would much rather have that happen, instead of her just being a cameo in the introduction of a movie. Poor Brandon, Lucas and Ethan.

Anna April 14th, 2013 3:05 PM

Aw yeah poor bbys :( Brandon and Lucas's counterparts were major characters too. They totally got shafted. D: They should all come back for something too. :>

zdude18 April 14th, 2013 3:36 PM

as much as it probably pains you that i say this anna, cilan has to go in the next arc. i honestly do not like him at all.

Anna April 14th, 2013 3:39 PM

That's fine, because the writers don't cater to you. <3 They can and might just keep my bby in~ What's your beef with him anyhow?
