On April 1st, Saturday it's the 20th Pokemon Anime anniversary. My proposal is to write an article about the best moments, battles, rivals, Ash's companion, other Pokemon anime like Pokemon Chronicles, and some things about movies. Actually a sum up of all these 20 years. Does this sound good?

A large project, but definitely getting a +1 from me!

How are you going to write it, however? Will you section it as per each season and have in one article, or will you do this as a series?

I think I will section it per each season and have it in one article. Like you said It's going to be a big article but I don't think that's a problem.

Great idea! I'd love to see that happen.

+1 to the general idea but curious on details as well.

How much do you think you'll say about each season, and would you cover best moments/battles/thoughts on rivals/companions each time?

I do see this potentially becoming very long depending on that and how much you speak on the movies/etc, so keep that in mind.

I'm not sure about how much I'm going to write but I'm sure it will be a pretty long article. Yeah I plan to cover the best moments/battles/thoughts on each season. Well, I guess I could tell a few things about the movies and just not cover them all? I'm not 100% sure about the movie part.

Perhaps it might be best to skim through the series and then pick maybe...5-10 highlights/key moments in the anime? By this I mean parts where the plot is significantly developed or are particularly momentous (for example, when Ash beats Lt. Surge) and then pad it out with some more minor details?

I think doing this may be key as the anime itself is so large and for one writer to try and process this and convey it to other readers is a mammoth task. That said, if you need help in ANY way, whether it's a grammar thing or you're trying to make something sound less flat etcetc then send me a message on here or Discord. I want this to work because it is such an awesome idea but I don't want you to get caught up in it and then it falls flat on its face.

Might be reasonable to do this as a longform article with a page corresponding to each generation. Do a brief summary of the series, analyse the major characters and talk about highlights for each.
