What would this board specifically consider a "good" pokemon anime?

I wouldn't change much beyond stopping making characters as one-dimensional and trying to keep things more authentic to the games. The anime is good as is. It's very popular and does its job of selling the games well.

It's basically unpopular with people here, who are all older than the target audience. It's like watching a kid show and then deciding that it needs to be retooled so adults will like it.


If the point isn't education, yes, a show aimed at kids SHOULD be retooled so adults would like it. Hell, some educational shows aimed at kids are more entertaining to adults than Pokemon is (see Arthur)

TV Shows like Teen Titans and Batman TAS are really fun for kids, but they are also really fun for adults. Then you have shows like Ultimate Spider-man that are critically panned, because they are aimed exclusively to kids. They don't try to have intelligent or mature content. They just cater to this market fantasy of a stupid ignorant kid who ONLY wants to see mindless action and slapstick.

It's bad as a kids show and it's just bad in general. I can still watch regular kids shows and enjoy them. I can't enjoy this even though it's pokemon.

It really says something when you can't enjoy a show based on something you love.


Yeah this explains it perfectly. I can go back and watch Static Shock and even the 4kids dub of Yu-Gi-Oh and have fun with it. I can barely sit through an episode of Pokemon.

Not really. It's pretty common for adaptations to be sufficiently different from source material that people take issue with it. It's why "The book is better than the movie" is so commonly said.

And Regular Show isn't Pokemon. RS is made for a certain audience and really does push the line for what people would consider appropriate for children. Pokemon is made for an audience that's still learning to read, and has to be as non-offensive as possible because they want it to air pretty much around the world without upsetting anyone.

The horrible formulaic episodes are why it (was) so bad. I don't know if they still do it since I haven't watched it in ages, but man that got old fast.

-ash and co. meet some random filler character and their random new pokemon
-ash and co. decide to help them with their random problem
-team rocket shows up and tries to capture pikachu (seriously, why pikachu? who would want it?)
-team rocket gets rekt
-they all lived happily ever after

And speaking of ash, that guy has to get killed off. He's just a terrible in every way.


lol the writers were probably on crack every time they write a new episode, they have to be. The show absolutely makes no sense.

Just wait for Ash vs. Smogon Ep. 7. Let's hope.

I would just get rid of Ash, he should have been cut off after gen 3. In gen 4 I would replace Ash with a new protagonist and his signature Pokemon would be a male Gardevoir. We all have our ideas, and it would most likely be better than what the writers in Japan can come up with.

Yes and there would be sex scenes too.

While I don't view the anime as great, it apparently is good enough to keep going for 10+ years now, so I don't see why they would change it now.

Though in my opinion; what I would like to see from a Pokémon anime:
-New protagonist at the start of every new generation (like Yu-Gi-Oh anime)
-Storyline being much closer to what the games have, but also go much more indepth (drop all the stupid, useless fillers, and work on fleshing out the story and characters instead)
-Characters that have some depth and develop throughout the story.
-No Team Rocket.

They could do all this while still keeping it kid-friendly.

Why team rocket is bad, they help the story progress and exciting don't they?

Nothing. This board hates everything, tbh.
