    Pokémon Anime Watch-Along Club

    Hi, everyone! Welcome to Pokémon Anime's Watch-Along Club! It's kind of like a book club except, you know, for the anime.

    What happens is that we'll pick a random episode for the week and have everyone watch it however they choose. You can watch it in Japanese, with or without subs, the English dub version, or any other dub version. It doesn't matter, just watch it! And then come back here to talk about it with others. But only for that week! Once the week is over, we're going to move on to the next episode on our list. If you miss the deadline and still want to share your thoughts on the episode, we have other threads in which to do that in and I will happily direct you there. If you can't find a way to watch the week's episode, just PM/VM me or post in the thread. I'm sure we can set up a livestream or something. I'll make every effort to find you a way to watch!

    Don't be afraid to join in on this! You can jump in any time, watch only episodes you want to see, wander off for a while, whatever. Nobody's gonna judge. I just want people to watch, enjoy, discuss, and try to look at the anime with fresh eyes. Throw away your preconceptions and character interpretations and try to think about it purely in that moment. Think of how the story is told, how the characters react, the good and the bad. A wordy review is good, but so is just pointing out aspects you liked or disliked! You're free to choose how to express yourself. There's like no formality here.

    We also have a Streaming Thread where you can set up or request livestreams of any episode you would like to watch. Preferably including the weekly Watch-Along episode.

    So let's recap!


    - This is a book club except with Pokémon Anime episodes.
    - We will focus on one randomly chosen episode per week.
    - Everyone will watch this episode in the version of their choice.
    - If you can't find the episode, PM/VM Anna or Wobbu or post in the thread.
    - When the week is over, we will move on. You can finish up the conversation about last week's ep, but try to focus on the next one.
    - You may join or drop out of the club at any time with or without warning.
    - New episodes will be posted on Mondays.

    Kicking Things Off

    Our first week will be March 24 - March 30. That means this Sunday through Saturday. As it's only Friday for most people, what I'd like in the meantime is a show of enthusiasm a consensus on the first episode we watch. I've got a list above, but feel free to suggest some! Especially from DP, as I personally haven't watched much of that saga and so I don't know which would be good.
    Edit: due to popular demand Vappy and me deciding it would be a good idea, the weeks are now Monday through Sunday.
