    So, I want to start watching the Pokemon series again. I used to watch them as a child, but I'd always get disappointed because the episodes ended so quickly :(

    So, whats YOUR favorite pokemon TV series?

    Maybe even the best movie?

    I'm talking about the older ones. Like Kanto, Johto, etc.

    Most people will probably say Kanto or Johto simply because of nostalgia. But let's be real, the XY series is where the epicness begins.

    Gambia, The
    Ever saw some deviant"art" about Misty and company? After that you don't want to watch Pokemon anymore. James blown up breasts are a joke against this.

    I stopped a few years ago on Black and White because they didn't air Team Rocket Vs Team Plasma Part 1 and 2 and possibly something else.
    But up to that episode, I watched them all. I recommend watching the very original series like most would say but I would say Hoenn was pretty close too :P

    I loves Pokemon series forever from Johto, then Orange Island, then Kanto, then Hoenn, then Sinnoh, then Unova and finally Kalos! :yay:
    Just waiting for delayed episode likes Team Rocket vs Team Plasma, but it was completely cancelled out.... :(
    Plus, some episode was aired in Japan only, but never aired on USA. For example is Dawn New Journey (special episode) which Dawn owned
    Cyndaquil was evolved into Quilava. Only in Japan, never aired in USA..... :(

    Yeah that kinda sucks. I was waiting on TR vs TP too.
    That would have been and EPIC freaking battle!
    I'll start with Johto! Would I need to catch up on the first series if I wanted to start with Johto? I already know what happens on Ash's adventure and crap like that in the first season.

    I definitely prefer the first one. They are all good, I think. I can only handle any of them in short bursts because the reality is, it lacks continuity. Idk the wrting situation (like it's probably not even the same people now), but it is for children. New watchers still need to now what's going on. A kid can't turn the TV on and be super confused lol.

    I've known the Pokemon TV series ever since I was like 3. I'm no stranger to it. I've loved Pokemon all my life

    Seasons 12 and 13 are my favourites. Maybe I'm biased by nostalgia, but I think season one was damn good, season two was pretty good and the Johto region was boring as hell. Never saw past the first episode of X and Y. I'm over the Pokemon anime.

    Best Wishes in both official subs and dubs turned Ash back into an amateur trainer...He was a pro since Advanced. XY has nearly turned him back into a pro. Other wise bw did some things right. Like they stopped interrupting the gym battles with team rocket, Ash finally started swapping pokemon out on a semi-regular bases. and team rocket were finally far less annoying. Unfortunately Ash's new companions were just as annoying if no more so then the old team rocket.

    This being said, I think I have not really enjoyed the anime the most I could have since since Johto first half. Now I mostly watch it when nothing else is on.

    I forgot
    Origins.

    ;O;O;

    I watched Kanto and Johto as a kid, and that's the only experience I've had with any Pokemon series other than Origins, which was pretty cool.

    The most recent

    no kidding, X & Y is by far the best series of Pokemon so far.
    And its such a breath of fresh air after Black & White's anime which was by far the worst

    I've used to love the show back in the day, when I was a little kid and Pokèmon was just starting out.
    Now, I can't stand it anymore. I have enough of that damn Ash and that damn Pikachu. on this motherf***ing plane.

    I say, watch Pokèmon origins. Is a love letter to all the fans of the original games. And Red is a much better protagonist than Ash.
    I mean, he became the Pokèmon champion! I don't think Ash ever did... He also actually catched them all.

    'Advanced Challenge' was pretty good.
