would you recommend the Sinnoh era of the Pokemon anime?

I know, the Pokemon anime isn't the greatest anime on Earth, but I have always enjoyed watching the Pokemon anime since I sat down and saw the first episode of the anime back in 1998 as a kid (which was actually the 15th episode, Battle Aboard the St. Anne. They showed it first as a preview to the anime before Pokemon: I Choose You ever was aired in the USA. That was my first experience with the show). I mean, I don't watch it now because of intellectual stimulation or anything, it just helps me unwind if I have a stressful day and need to be cheered up.

I have seasons 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, & 8 on DVD, but I am now thinking of expanding my collection. I never saw anything past Pokemon Advanced Battle on TV as I simply don't watch actual TV anymore (just DVDs and Blu Rays now).

So, I was wondering, would the Sinnoh saga be worth picking up? Why or why not?

Thanks for helping.

The major problem with the Sinnoh era is the HUGE amount of filler episodes.

Dawn is amazing. Even if you don't like Contests the thing that girl does in the ring is mind-blowing sometimes. I used the be the biggest fanboy for May (and Drew) but When Dawn trades away that stupid water-rat for that purple... just, wow, Dawn develops skills.
You opened a debate, and I'll be damned if you're not going to finish it. ~smashbrother3

Sinnoh was arguably the best the anime has ever been

It's the best region of the entire anime.

It does drag on for quite a while, but I think it had the greatest character development of the series overall. Ash's rival is actually impressive throughout the show, and they have two awesome battles towards the end of the arc. Ash's Chimchar is also my favorite member of all of his teams in the show.

That's when I sorta stopped watching. It was good when I watched it, but I just became lazy >_>
