    SM has made Pokemon Anime into a hell section for sure. I now feel like wanting to avoid the section due to these arguments.

    I doubt it was this bad before SM.

    I would imagine debates is the hardest, fine line on what not to say

    Considering what that "is the Sun & Moon anime set in an AU" thread has descended into, do you think Pokemon Anime is the hardest section for the staff to handle? I could imagine all the stress Kostas got in there deleting all those spam posts and rants, while it never stops.

    I personally do believe anime sections in general are hell, especially if dealing with such a divisive topic that is prone to drawing ranters.

    Still, it's made things become even more divided. The Pokemon anime community has been split into two opposing forces which has never happened to this extent with the previous sagas.

    I disagree with it not being a continuation. That particular site also states that BW is not a continuation of DP, except without BW, XY doesn't happen (and people enjoy XY a lot). Please correct me if I'm wrong, I admire the effort and dedication put into it but I don't think it's as factually correct as some people make it out to be.

    I don't think it's anything to do with continuity, rather how Ash is portrayed and his skill level (despite my personal opinion he's a bad trainer with good Pokémon, akin to Lillie's battle in SM030).

    Don't particularly care whether people like or dislike sagas to be honest. I'm tired of all the negativity. It's far from stellar writing, it's far from being a turd but I'm enjoying it and that's all that counts to me.

    Never really use Tumblr much except to grab photos. I even mainly use Imgur. Reddit is the one place I truly enjoy discussing the anime (and no that's not because I can down vote stuff I disagree with).

    And of course someone roasts me for pointing out SM anime problems again. This guy reblogged a post which I had to delete due to the negative attention it got, and he called me "desperate" which I find very offensive. That link is not fanfic stuff, but pointed out at a tweet by the sound director.

    Face it, don't ever try and point out SM is flawed on Tumblr because everyone on there loves to defend this crappy saga of a Pokemon anime.

    This guy happens to be Janovy on Serebii Forums, a place I had to quit because my stance on the SM anime problems caused me to get nothing but a total roasting.

    Also, a nice treat for Dawn fans in SM013. That COTD with blue hair happened to be voiced by Emily Jenness, who voiced Dawn.

    I feel the only reason that name was picked was because of it being Ice-type, and it reminds me of what most people would name their Ice-type. The dub keeps showing just how bad it is, and that is when a lazy, generic nickname gets used.

    At least "Caserin" the Luvdisc wasn't generic...

    Sort of ok but at the same time Lillie sure is lucky it didn't hatch into something that wasn't Ice type

    So SM013 revealed Shiron's English name...


    How do you feel about it? I hate it because it's such a lazy and generic name, in that it had no connection to the Japanese name like Squishy did.

    Also, I noticed that the SM dub is having a disturbing trend of changing the voice actors of Pokemon who retained their Japanese name. In previous dub seasons, they usually kept the Japanese voices (such as Ash's Buizel) but now they seem to go through unnecessary dub-overs, such as Kate Bristol replacing Mika Kanai for Togedemaru. Now Jessie's Mimikyu seems to have suffered, with Billy Bob Thompson (Greninja's VA) replacing the Japanese voice.

    Even in XY, some Japanese voices got dubbed over, such as Viola's Vivillon.

    It's not the sociality, but rather how he's feeling and reacting.

    My brother is autistic and he and Ash are nothing alike.

    The fact that he wants to try new things and engages with others in a social manner is the opposite to people diagnosed with autism. Autistic individuals much prefer repetitive routines (hence where the obsession comes from) and prefer to be by themselves - Ash is pretty much a social butterfly and this hasn't changed in over twenty years.

    VA's are OK to bad. The dialogue is just terrible which ruins it for me.

    Also, I actually came up with a theory that Ash's personality in SM suggests that he may have autism. I mean, he gets overly obsessed when he sees something new very often in this series, which I easily remember a lot of young kids with autism often do.

    Also, I found out who Professor Kukui and Samson Oak's dub voices are. They are voiced by Abe Goldfarb (Xerosic's VA) and Marc Thompson respectively.
