    Yeah same. I am really lost as to why they keep rushing things when they know the exact amount of time they have before they can really get XY saga going. :|

    I haven't watched it in quite a while. I just lost interest and it seems pretty childish. Was neat to see different moves used in a more "realistic" way, though.

      Well yeah it's kinda childish. It's, um, a kid's show. But it does tend to have fun characters and interesting plots, and it actually isn't stagnant. Except for Johto. Oh, region of fillers....

      I'll pick it up again once the anime reaches the XY point, or closer to the end of Unova, but the journey itself just kinda.. I lost my interest sorta early on.

        But Episode N though! Drama and things are happening and the Rockets are actually cool as well as entertaining. :D

        And no, those didn't ever air. Elements of them are being reworked into upcoming episodes and the July movie though.

          It's a neverending anime, which means it's automatically out in my book. :(

            Not really? Most do have an actual ending, as befits a dramatic production. But Pokémon is more like a sitcom or a soap in that it just keeps on going. Things change, but it's still gonna go on.

              Well no. A lot of them have a set ending in mind because the creators want to tell a story, which has a pretty clear beginning, plot progression, and end. Like how BBC's Merlin was set up- 5 seasons, that's done. But what you're thinking of is more like Doctor Who- it's not going to properly end until a) it stops being a cash cow or b) it gets cancelled again because the storytelling's gone to ****.

              Anime tends to only have no ending if it gets cancelled/scrapped/postponed before its originally scheduled end... unless it's non-sequential in which case it generally just doesn't matter, just like non-sequential material in Western TV culture too. If Pokémon does ever end, you know they'll go out of their way to make it a significant end.

              And then it'll be rebooted like a year later so it wouldn't matter anyway.

              No not really. Most anime goes for one season, and then if people like it enough maybe it'll go for another or two more. There's Naruto and Bleach and all that, but the vast majority of anime is 13-26 episodes, maybe 2-3 seasons, and done.

                I'm not sure if people are aware, but all the interest in Episode N has led me to think it's worth saying: we actually do have a Pokémon Anime section here at PC, complete with an Episode Discussion forum and threads for nearly all the recent episodes. I mean, if you're looking into Episode N and want to talk about it, that's there. Just though I'd say something since apparently nobody knows about it.

                Maybe I'm speaking from my own moderator perspective, but I don't think there are people that don't know that we have an anime section....XD

                    For what reason? I mean like... it's fine that you don't, but what makes you not want to go there and talk about it?

                      Stunfisk is the best everyone go home.

                      Except for Dwebble and Crustle. They're better. But everyone else go home.

                      Stunfisk is one of my favourite Pokémon, mainly because of its design. I love silly looking ones. :P

                      I guess just because I never had an interest in discussing it with people. Kind of like how I'm following the X&Y news but not posting in the forum; I'm not in a place where I want to have discussion. Part of it is also that all the anime people on here know way more than me and have watched way more and remember the shows they watched better so I'm just like x_x

                      Also just remembered it's GE not JE.

                      Are all men stupid?

                      That's right.

                        Fair enough! I guess for me the discussion's almost more fun than actually keeping up with things, so I don't really remember that other people don't always want to. ^^;

                        I like discussing things like BW! I joined here for BW discussion, just some things I don't want to discuss. Either I don't feel confident enough in my ability to keep up with the discussion or I just...don't want to discuss that particular thing. XD
