Do you enjoy the Pokemon anime or games more?

I've heard too many hilarious stories about Ash's fails that I don't think I'll ever watch the Anime.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

The anime is good... for YTPs

I'm sure every single fan of the games has, at one point or another, wished to live in the anime pokemon world, just so they could beat Ash's ass in a pokemon battle real good and show him what a friggin hack he is.

The games. I haven't watched the anime in about 10 years.

Games. The anime doesn't even rank.

It jumped the shark at the same time it became obvious that Jessie and James were going to be in every episode. So episode 4?

(Episode 1 was actually kind of cool, episode 2 gets a pass because the pattern hadn't been set, and in episode 3 Ash caught Pokemon. We hadn't realized what a rarity that would be yet.)

The best story-telling in the franchise happens in the Pokemon Adventure manga. I keep hoping they'll wise up and release an anime for slightly more mature audiences that retells the manga adventures, but it hasn't happened yet.

On a scale of 1 to 10, the games are at 9 and the anime is at -99999999999999

If the anime's greatness were at sea level, in comparison the games would be all the way up and up more until you go pass the Oort Could and into the depths of space.

I was introduced to Pokemon through the games and didn't find out that there was an anime until I had beaten the entire third generation main games. Needless to say, the anime became my worst enemy.

I don't like the new pokemon from Gen V and VI

The anime's sole purpose right now is just to promote the new games. If not they would have:

> Taken out Ash
> Taken out Pikachu
> Reworked Jessie and James into anti-heroes (not just comic relief)


I fail to see what keeping a bunch of old stuff that isn't in the new games has to do with promoting the new games.

The games by far are the best of any pokemon media.

Now, if you'd have asked which was better between the anime or the manga, I'd have definately voted the anime.


Really? I find the manga to be amazing. It's exactly what I would want a real Pokemon world to be like. But the games are way better than both in any case.
