Slasher movies? Those are usually meh at best.

And the old Pokemon movies were awesome. Mewtwo's Revenge was the best.

OMG I really want to watch the Mewtwo movies now ;-; but they're on VHS and we not longer have a VCR so no way to watch them. I also really want to watch Pokemon: The Movie 2000 as that movie basically got me interested in the games(cause of Lugia being awesome)

Can't you see all the older movies on Youtube, or am I mistaken?

I have two favorite movies. Scott Pilgrim vs the World (obvious reasons are obvious) and Brazil, one of those movies that is just interesting from beginning to end and has a twist that even makes M. Night ShamalamaIneverrememberhowtospellhisname gasp.

The Pokemon movies still kinda hold up. They hold up alot better then some kids movies I've seen with now freshly adult eyes. (I'm looking at you Power Rangers and Beyblade)

So true. That nostalgia is something I love feeling. Sucks that I don't really feel it with the newer movies.

I prefer more mature anime... that's why I struggle so much with Pokemon.

OH MAH GOD have you guys seen Dale and Tucker vs. Evil? :D

I really don't like horror movies, but the unique mix of comedy and violence just made it so fun to watch. Only horror movie I've liked in a long time.

Not to mention Alan Tudyk as Tucker... loving Firefly made him grow on me no matter what role he does <3.

I dont hate it, it's just kind of boring and I'm tired of Ash, his repeated noobishness and Pikachu ^^; I like other anime myself more.

I'll never ever understand the logic behind Pikachu's strength.

-beats Latios in finals of whatever league.
-loses to a starter in the next leg of the journey.


Well, someone got rusty really fast.

Not just Pikachu, Ash like had amnesia or something. The dude killed Gym Leaders, riled up trainers and even friggin defeated two of Tobias' Legendary Pokemon in the Lily Cove Valley Conference, then he heads to Unova and forgets that he has to battle a Pokemon before catching it. Like... wat. >_>

Pokémon is like phone plans - it's lots of fun when you first do it, but then the company screws us older fans over with new stuff to attract new customers. It's like, WTF Nintendo, I've been a fan since like 2002! D:

I only ever watched until a thirdway into Hoenn, and it was rarely even then.
The first movies/seasons are way better.

Meh, I really gotta hand it to whoever made that new Dcc rule... you just killed this thread for me.
Because now you can't just walk in and talk to people, which essentially outlaws the best part of it. You people and your conformity. :T

I really liked the Advanced Gen the most. Why? As far as the main hero goes, he was by far the most matured during that season--he built up experience from previous seasons, and APPLIED it in ADV and DP.

My guess is he probably got washed up at sea in Unova from a boat wreck in the Orange Islands, where his memory was magically erased by a mysterious beast of the sea. ;D *shot*

The whole point of a DCC is to follow the flow of the topic and if it dies, start a new one. Or, answer the topic and then try to start another. Don't just post...

hey guys what's up dcc?

That's spam and completely unacceptable! I report all of ye.

back on topic -- can I watch the Pokemon movies without following the anime?

When the Unova anime first came out I watched the first few episodes in Japanese. It was alright, but not good enough to follow on my own :(

Wow look at the ridiculous rudeness going on in here. I'm really getting tired of senseless claims that newer gens are ruining things for the older fans, because wow. I've been a fan since 1998, and Pokémon continues to be pretty damn good.

@Mac: The movies are pretty much a separate thing from the main anime, so yeah you can totally do that.

@Toujours: It got better. Oh my goodness, it so got better.

You definitely can! I actually saw the Advance Generation, Diamond & Pearl, and Best Wishes arc movies before I caught up on the anime lmao.

I would think so. They don't follow the same plot as the show, unless you're wondering where and how Ash got a certain Pokemon or something.

There was only one claim of that Anna! :( People are allowed to be bored with/criticize the anime.
