Yeah, kinda like that! Except like, our TRio would still have their personal mission of capturing Pikachu so they'd keep track of Ash&co as best they can but also they'd actually be put to work as legit members of Team Rocket and sent on fetch quests or similar. I mean it looks as if this could be a possibility because at this point Giovanni actually seems to like them. <3

Giovanni did choose them for the mission with Landorus, Thunderus and Tornadus. I wouln't mind a couple episodes of Tracey. I always liked his Scyther.

Perhaps once they get back to Pallet Town Tracey will have an active role for a few episodes. I did like him actually, idk why like everyone else can't stand him. He's a cool dude.

I still can't figure out what they're going to be doing in Kanto though. Like Iris and Cilan expressed interest in seeing what Kanto has to offer, but they're probably just going to stop in at Pallet Town and then head off to XY region. Unless they're going to do some filler in Kanto? idk man it just seems weird.

The X Y games don't come out until October so I guess they might do some filler. Maybe he'll go back through and meet with people from the Kanto seasons. I hope we'd get to see Brock and Gary again.

You know what'd be interesting? If we followed Ash, Iris, and Cilan around through Kanto visiting one or two of Ash's friends per episode but maybe so it was like... the friend was the main character for the episode instead of Ash? Do you know what I'm getting at here?

Yeah, that's what I'm kind of thinking. Like Chronicles but with Ash&co as side-characters for the episode. They just happen to be there while other people are doing things. It'd be interesting to see their lives from someone else's perspective, you know?

I just realized that in the Unova series there is a distinct lack of Professor Oak What do you guys think of Oak being replaced by Juniper? Personally I have to say I prefer Oak.

I don't really mind. I liked seeing Aurea around rather than Oak. Like I like them both and Oak's really cool but it was nice to have a different Professor as the go-to for a while. And she's cool as well! All science-y and whatnot. Oak's just kind of like a more outgoing version of my grandpa, chillaxing on his farm.

I see what you mean. Juniper is young and ambitious while Oak is old and takes things at a much slower pace. I'm all for anything related to science anyway. I do wish we got to see at least some of Oak though. Its like Ash forgot about him when he went to Unova.

Yeah that's true. I do miss him, but he'll be coming back in for the next series. And probably he'll be around for Decolora as well. There'll be no reason for Ash to use Juniper's Pokémon storage anymore. And he probably won't use the local XY professor's either because XY are probably not going to be ~cut off from everything else~ again because wow that was a mistake that got corrected.

I'm not so up to date with episodes or Pokemon in general anymore, but I've jumped back into the anime at BW2 Episode N. And I am just *loving* N's character. I love how he's retaining his game persona; there are a lot of times where they just don't bother with it in the anime. There are just too many moments I found unintenionally funny with him, his fast speaking and everyone's faces are all o.o, him randomly interrupting the Pokemon fire brigade because he disagreed (made the episode for me) and gah, he brought plot to the anime XD Easily my favourite game - and now anime - character from the series XD

And I don't mind Juniper being in the main episodes more than Oak. If you watch it in Japanese, you get to see Oak every episode anyway :>

Also when did supporters colour change to green?? :O

Wah it's Jorah?! HI THERE~

N's def a super interesting character. I like how they handled his general philosophy in relation to 'normal' views-there's the conflict there, but both parties are able to understand each others points and that's really important, I think.

....that may be why I didn't miss Oak so much haha. Kind of forgot but yeah watching him after each episode made it feel like he was there for it.

supporters are green since end of february! :D

Just curious. Is the Japanese anime slightly more mature than the American dub? I just started watching subs and it seems like it might be.

Well... it's less... extremely geared toward children? Like the dub tends to be kind of dull and flat and feels dumbed-down imo. It's not like the sub is super mature, but it doesn't feel as childish as the dub does. I think that's what I'm trying to convey haha.

I see. It is much more interesting than the dub, at least for me. It is a little odd to adjust to the new voice actors,though.

Are you watching things you've already seen dubbed? Because I'm wondering like... is it more interesting because the Japanese is more in-depth, or might it just be the particular episode(s)?

I think that the dialogue is much more in depth which in turn makes the story much more interesting.

Yeah I can agree to that. I've always been of the opinion that the TPCI scripts have been very bland and the acting stilted, but even more so in Unova. I mean it's... fine, I guess, but it just could be so much better.

Other than the more in depth dialogue both several new songs (at least I don't think I heard them in the dub) and more mature-sounding (deeper voiced) voice actors make the sub much more interesting for me. It also helps that the villains in general have gotten stronger. Team Rocket actually creates well thought-out plans.

Oh now I'm wondering- where did you leave off with the dub & start with the sub? Have you started at the beginning of Best Wishes or the start of Episode N or Decolora or just picked it up randomly?

I'm def more fond of the voice and scripts from the original than the TPCI dub. But I still adore the 4Kids dub- even more so after watching TPCI. Because they Americanized it, but they put so much effort in it. The scripts may not have been accurate, but they flowed well. The actors were amazing and brought so much to the plain scripts. I just don't see that in TPCI.

I might be totally off on that but that's what I've been seeing after doing Watch-Along and jumping around in BW and OS/AG.

I am against this theory whether they are going into XY Region with Ash. That depends upon the XY games themselves whether they are allowing some old characters to appear

That's not what I'm saying, really. What I'm saying is that I'm confused as to if they'll do something in Kanto, and if so then what? Since Iris and Cilan were interested in Kanto, then it wouldn't make sense to move on immediately. What I want for XY is Iris to go off and train with Clair and Cilan to accompany Ash to the XY region. Because they still haven't done enough with his character.

I agree with Anna that they could do so much more character development with Ash. He's been stagnant far too long. I have to say that I would very much enjoy a time in which they traveled around Kanto again. It would be quite nostalgic. Also what do you guys think of the newer bad guys ("New" team rocket and team plasma). I find that I am liking how team rocket is an actual threat. They actually have well thought out plans to capture Pikachu and even when they fail its not as tragic as it used to. Plus they are pretty bad*** (pardon my language) when it comes to fighting team plasma. Team plasma on the other hand actually look like bad guys and reach most of their goals, even with Ash and N in their way.
