    not gonna lie, I LOVED this!

    Shame that this short got more production effort than literally ALL OF sword & shield did.

    then again, I'd probably consider watching the pokemon series again if they'd just get rid of Ash Ketchum. I wanted to like what was being done with Sun & Moon series, and it had some great promise with Kukui being so likeable for the start of it, but I literally couldn't even finish the second episode because Ash was still just as insufferable and idiotic as what turned me off the last time around.

    While this short in itself was average, I LOVE that they went with this approach. Even Japan is embracing the golden age of western cartoon. Some things just do not need to change.

    I hope we get a lot more of this!

    I honesty don't understand why they keep Ash.

    The most popular character is Pikachu, not him.

    And as series targeted for kids it definitely has gotten way too long.

    This isn't something like Doraemon that has almost no continuity and kids can pick it from any chapter on.

    In fact this is a series that punishes you if you watch more than a season because Ash, and Pikachu keeps going back to zero so much it hurts.

    Heck Pokemon already ended once. As in there was a few weeks without new episodes at all and the Sun and Moon series was so different having Ash on it was pointless.

    If the anime is pointed to small kids then they should realise that due to said kids growing up there is not much sense in keep using Ash.

    Yes there is the manga with different protagonists, but honesty whatever is the point of still having Ash as the protagonist?

    The guy has basically been over half the world at this point yet keeps getting beaten by kids younger than him and that have nowhere his experience.

    They really should have switched him to a mentor role at this point.

    Not to mention he isn't even the main character of the games anymore.

    This is why Pokemon is going to die because of the way they do things. The Anime is lame and the games are repetitive. The keep on thinking add new pokemon and areas no that isn't the answer improve your story we have too many pokemon now. The game should be geared into telling a good story vs the generic 8 gym leaders and pokemon league. After the league what happens the game is over this is unacceptable they have to have a post adventure after you are champion.

    Ash is a wimpy version of Red I'm not even sure how kids like him. Pokemon is like WWE it was once good but due to poor writing and creativity nobody really watches it or play it unless you are a dedicated fan.

    It feels off to me, I feel like the line art should be a lot pulpier as it feels super clean and old cartoons didn't look like that, and there's almost no grain.

    You can tell it's not a real golden age cartoon because it's not virulently racist

    This was actually really well done. Maybe they'll do more.
