Not gonna lie today's episode did not do it for me. A whole episode of just throwing pokeballs and catching pokemon was just not my cup of tea. Kind of boring. It was cool to see how excited Go was about catching. Though that stupid voice calling out "nice", "great" and "excellent" was just borderline annoying. Didn't even feel like I was watching as how anymore.

From what I read on twitter, a lot of people are disappointed in how they handled it. I haven't watched the anime and this episode has me even more skeptical of the entire saga. However, I'd like to point out that they were bug types and they are easily caught. I will say Parasect, Beedrill, Venomoth, and Pinsir shouldn't have been caught so easily.

So.... let's hope they don't do this again. If they are going to continue to do this though, then Ash needs to catch pokemon.

Ooooh, what a coincidence!! That theme you mentioned during the Lugia scene was the one that stood out to me the most so far, as well. ^-^ And haha, let's keep our fingers tightly crossed for those soundtracks to get released! 🤞 The sooner they're here, the sooner we can also have the new series' soundtrack too, right...? One can dream, at least!

As for the newer episodes, I seriously need to catch up! I can't believe I'm three episodes behind already! ;__;
It is a rather intense and attention-grabbing theme!

And I hope you catch up soon, the newer episodes really give Ash and Gou a more well-rounded feel as characters, I think you'll find them more than worth watching!

I can sort of get the sentiment, that was a lot of catches (more than prior companions, especially all at once) and minimal interaction--I feel like both XY and S&M spoiled us a little in giving actual characterization even for one-off wild Pokemon than this did, though I guess they were focused more on Gou's character during the narrative for this episode. I think we expect more of a balance between one of the main characters and their relationship with their Pokemon (this season seems to give Gou a far more equal role to Ash as far as that goes, rather than a side/main like the rest of the traveling companions), so the suddenness of Gou spamming Pokeballs without even interacting with the catches save for the bit at the end stood out more. And you have a point with Parasect and Co, though I do recall earlier seasons making less of a deal out of weakening Pokemon before catching them, especially if they were caught off guard. I think Paul did it with that group of Starly before releasing them. I could be wrong, though!

See the thing is I don't have that much of an issue if Gou is the one catching stuff. Though I'm disappointed Ash literally did nothing to help him, I was hoping he would at least be some form of help to him as Brock was to him. They should give Ash a more serious role as a helper or a guide for someone as they embark on their own pokemon journey.

Thoughts on this weeks episode:
- Battlefrontier wtf has this been reduced to
- Go has one thick Taillow
- Hoji basically treated Go the way everyone treats NPCs in the games
- Episode moved way too fast, everything just felt completely rushed

I don't know if it's just me but these battles are pretty boring...

You know Sun and Moon I could watch, and still relatively enjoy. My god. The 2019 Pokemon anime has been so boooooooring. I just don't care what happens. Cool side story, but we're getting filler before we even got any actual mainline stuff.

I just saw the episode about Koharu not knowing what to do in the future and the message from Koharu’s mother—who dreamt of being a manga artist, worked hard, but still failed, even considering giving up on art until her future husband encouraged her to stick to it because it makes her happy... even if she needed to find a new path, really made an impact. Couldn’t have come at a better time!!

It’s nice the anime still conveys the old message that it’s okay to fail (even now that Ash succeeded at a league!) through other characters (it works just as well!) and now, even that sometimes, you have to change your goals, but don’t give up on what brings you happiness.

Also, that Renji guy’s love for his Coil/Magnemite killed me. Françoise-chan!!!

I really love the art in this series. I prefer the art style of BW! and XY for faces (the former more for sheer expressiveness over the stiffness, without being too zany or gross-out), but 2019 has very good proportions and it’s pleasant to watch.

I’ll try and see more episodes and catch up!!

Happy they found the same seiyuu for Wataru/Lance (I guess it’s just Daigo/Steven whose AG appearance was just so poorly received, they recasted him and ignored that old story...).

^Ahh yes, that episode was adorable. I love Koharu, and am so happy to see her feel more connected with Yamper. Those two will make an absolutely adorable duo. ;_; <3

Well, in sun & moon, they changed the animator and I don't really like his/her style, so I stopped watching and plus, where I am, the only way to get pokemon episodes is Netflix + Pokemon.com (which has really gone downhill since they removed the minigames😅). And Netflix only has up to S/M season 2.

No, they change animation styles, but there are many different animators and many head animators, like Masaaki Iwane, have been around since the original series! The character designs are a stylistic choice.

But yeah, the new Pocket Monsters series has another art style with much more balanced proportions in terms of body and the faces look more balanced too (although Ash’s eyes were unusually small compared to the rest of his face/far apart in SuMo style, they’re now very wide! Some don’t like this, but it’s by no means the same art style).

This thread is for discussing PM 2019, not Sun & Moon!

(It seems a lot of official sites take down their old games, a pity....)
