I absolutely adored the anime up until Gen IV, then for some reason I just gradually lost interest as Gen V came around. I watched half of the series (up until Brycen's gym battle) and it was very good, but it just wasn't gripping enough compared to the other sagas. It's probably because it's the same thing over and over again but this time trying to be very different with the new characters etc, it just didn't feel worth watching any more. I'll probably get into it again soon enough though, my addiction with anime is quite sporadic haha.

No I haven't stopped watching ever since I started watching it six years ago and I honestly don't plan on stopping because it somewhat keeps me entertained. But there were times I had planned on it when Sinnoh started to get annoying but even than I didn't' stop. I only stop when there is a break between seasons which these days are rare.

Yep, I stopped watching around midway through Gen 4 story. I just felt like there was soooo much side stuff and smaller plotlines. I JUST COULDN'T TAKE IT!

I used to watch it everyday up until around the end of Johto. Seems I find myself watching it less and less as time progresses. I've been trying to get back into watching it regularly though.

You wish it was this easy...

I'm still watching it, but I'm starting to get annoyed by the directions they take Ash, and may stop if this keeps up.

I watched Pokemon for the first time on 7/11/2004.

In that time up to now I had never watched all the anime since I was in school and never had the time to watch all of it. In spring of 2009 I enrolled in a Chemical Science Program at my local university and in 2011 was awarded with a Diploma in Chemical Science (L5). In those two years of study I never watched Pokemon once and forgot about it - which was the best thing at the time for me.

Now I am on a break from school (the first one in like 7 years) I have watched Season 1 2 and 3 and going to start on 4 tonight.

I got the episodes from .......... and I'm guessing a lot of users here know what I am talking about

I stopped watching the anime around the time of nimbasa. Up until then I had basically marathoned it from the beginning, watching every episode except the special ones, and one about some train in Sinnoh. I just got kind of tired of it I think, as watching all of it in a short timespan makes the anime feel verrrrry repeptitive etc. Also how it took like 200 episodes between gyms in Sinnoh or something. >_> And I think that just made me get tired of it, so I gave up. (Also at that point I had caught up so I had to wait a week between episodes which I wasn't a fan of haha :P)

I started to get bored during the battle frontier and stopped watching it until the end of sinnoh. Seeing some of Ash's old Pokemon during the sinnoh league got me back into the series.

I loved the anime until around halfway through Gen IV, where my interest dropped quite a bit, I was finding the channel here which aired them, were repeatedly playing episodes instead of releasing the new ones and after a while I got tired of it. Other than that I used to adore watching the anime at any possible chance, although I still watch Best Wishes sometimes and catch up on what has happened so far. :x

I originally watched it until Diamond and Pearl, then stopped watching it.
However, I've started to watch it again via the Pokemon TV app on my iPad, though I've mainly been watching episodes from Kanto and Johto and not even one episode of Black and White. (To me, it wouldn't be the same with Ash being the only original character that remains)

I stopped watching the anime after the current writers made Ash 10, and his Level 100 Pikachu lose to a ****ing lvl 5 Snivy. For long time fans this was a slap in the face.

I stopped after the Orange League, I just got pissed as Ash's horrible battle skills.
I'll probably marathon it, just to say I've seen it all.
The same way I did with Naruto, Shippuden and One Piece

I still watch it and must say the current Unova season is the coolest of all due to many things. Cool story going, graphics improvement, animation is also super cool. I watched few episodes of previous season of Sinnoh and it was way bad. I also have all the English episodes of Unova Season

For me pokemon the anime died near the end of diamond and pearl. Tries watching a few episodes of black and white but ash being a complete moron again annoys me far too much. Most of the new characters suck(in my opinion).

Nope. I'm still watching and I know that's not something big cause I'm still 11 years old.Although the first episodes were much funnier.

Watched loads of the Kanto episodes. Almost all the diamond/pearl episodes (my fave season), but never BW series, it didn't seem that good to me. I did watch the Victini and Reshiram movie though.

I stopped watching a long time ago. Watching the Kanto and Orange Isles episodes my interest in the series dropped starting with Jotho. I've seen some of the Jotho and even Hoenn episodes (the Lugia and Kyogre/Groudon arcs were kinda nice) but since then it's dead for me.
