Pokemon XY, whilst not being totally dissimilar from the seasons before it, i consider it much better. Be awere that my opinion could be different than it could be due to the fact i watched the previous seasons in english dubbed done terribly, and im watching XY in eng subbed. This may make my judgement a little innacurate. If you think so, comment below and i'll be glad to hear your opinion. The story has not had enough episodes to develop yet, so i may fill this in on a later date, but it looks somewhat hopeful. The best thng about this anime is, as i must say, its new cinematography. I think that its amazing, and that the pokemon themselves have realistic movements, and the different angles and perspectives used, especially in pokemon battles are superb. This is a massive improvement to the anime, and i must say is really unique. It captures angles well, and is perfect for showing the action. It's actually got some of the best cinematography i've seen, as it is very active and does well in this anime. Again, one of the best things about the anime. Easily 9.5/10 The sound is again good. It's personally nothing too great, but it isn't bad either. The pokemon sounds though are really nice, although they still are restricted to saying their names. The voice acting is nothing special, and is not that great, and some of the characters play there roles too much. Not all, just some. I cannot really give examples, due to not having much of a developed opinion on the voices yet, since i don't nearly know enough about the main characters (character development hasn't really happened much due to so few episodes) to comment if the voices really suit them yet. The sound effects though are quite good, and match the scene well. Therefore 8 out of ten, altough maybe a too much, but 7.5 didn't seem right. The charatcers may not be great, but they are a massive improvement. So far, the charatcer development has been done on Satoshi (Ash), and a little bit on the sister. I personally have much more respect for Ash in this season, because it shows clearly his care for pokemon, and it's not too out of place since the pokemon do act somewhat intellegent, and can clearly understand what people say, so of course Ash would become legitimate friend with them, and care about them like he would do a human. Also, Ash seems a lot smarter now. Before he was an idiot, so much so that in a gym match he only brought 1 pokemon against 3, and he did that because that one pokemon was his stratagy. It was his stratagy because it had a type advantage. Now, he is clearly a much smarter character, and i can't really explain it well, so if you're curious, watch the anime. Team rocket though are still pretty lame, but i can see why they're even still here, bacause they give a reason for a battle to start, anywhere anytime. They're still lame though, and it would be nice to see the protagonists beat people who at least have dignity... Oh yeah, something i forgot. There is something strange going on. Ash actually has a past with someone! Yes, you read right, Ash was a child and has a childhood friend! They're obviously going to develop this, but i just wanted to say this because its an example of some of the good writing they're doing. They're giving a backstory? Only anime that are at least worthy of being called decent do that! What does it mean? Well, it means that there will be a proper story (like each episode actually having a meaning, rather than just some action happening between a gym battle) , more propper character development, and is a concequence of good, thoughtful writing used to make a good anime. Hopefully now you understand why I gave 8/10, as the characters aren't written the best ever, but they're pretty darn decent and are actually as well developed and written as many other anime, and although a little patchy, looks hopeful. Overall, the anime is interesting, the characters are connectable and strangly enough, i am actuall interested in what will happen next episode, because the writing is good, they're using many techniques that are what makes a good anime, and is not just a goofy kids show that is just there to promote the game, but they actually are trying to make it something people what to watch, and if you have seen pokemon the origin, than you can see many similarities between the two, which is obviously dues to the origin beeing popular, especially amoung fans. Whilst the nime isn't amazingly written, it is taking care with what it's doing, and with an already interesting idea (pokemon btw), it is enjoyable and worth watching, but not that good because the writing isn't that neat yet, and in some areas still childish, but it's fixed many problems with the anime and i enjoy watching it more. But don't pin your hopes up, because it isn't revolutionary for pokemon, just they've made it better and many faults are still there. The main difference is, you can see care has gone into it. Thankyou for reading, and if you have anything you want to say, please don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to hear your opinions and if you have anything you want to say, please do. Id also like some constructive critisism, but please nothing without reason, as i'd most likely take that as offence, which i'm not trying to inflict on you, so please don't inflict on me. Also if there is any way of improving my review, please say so, as i'd love some advise since this is my secound review.
SPOILER WARNING I'm one of the few people that hate this series, but I have a good reason. The show itself wasnt bad actually, the animation and sound was amazing the characters were unique and intresting except for one. Serena just ruined the whole show for me, she was just made for fan service and to have a crush on the main protagonist. At first I thought her crush was cute but after 93 episodes of this pointless blushing and fangirling, I got bored of it and it actually started annoyed me. The company that made this show obviously just wanted some quick money since the whole show was wasted on this crush. EVERY SINGLE EPISODE was filled with 'I hope senpai notices me' and 'im sure my senpai loves me' to the point where I thought Serena was some creepy yandere since the whole reason she started her pokemon quest to be with a guy she met and interacted with for 5 minites when she was 5 years old. If Serena wasnt in this show, I would give it a 10/10
Since 2009, I haven't watched Pokemon for a while. The last Pokemon I watched was Diamond and Pearl series. I have watched Pokemon since I was a kid, although there were some episodes I watched and some I didn't watch. In 2016, I went back to Pokemon since I really liked it. I watched some parts of the Best Wishes series and watched four full episodes of it, but I never finished much of it. I saw some parts of the XY series and some full episodes, I really liked it so I decided to watch all of the XY series full episodes and it was great. I watch the Pokemon series in English Dub. The XY series is the best Pokemon series to watch because of the adventues and the characters. Seeing Mega Evolution is very fantastic, although the Bond Phenomenon is the best with Ash and Greninja becoming one known as Ash-Greninja. Serena who is a childhood friend of Ash is a great character, she does fit the role of becoming Ash's girlfriend and his wife. Also, she has a crush on Ash. The saddest moments are saying goodbye to Greninja and the XY group. I hope Ash sees them again soon in the future seasons. It's surprising that Serena kissed Ash in the XY finale to have him realise she loves him, I believe Ash smiling at Serena would mean that he loves her as well. Greninja and Serena are destined to become part of Ash's live. Even though XY has eneded, it is just the beginning of Ash falling in love. It is suprising that there were two female friends who traveled with Ash and that he has another male friend. Clemont, Serena, and Bonnie were the greatest friends Ash has ever had. I do miss Brock, but he has to study hard to become a Pokemon Doctor, I hope he sees Ash again. I wished the two special episodes would be aired in English Dub. I wished Greninja didn't have to be released. I know Goodra had to be released to be with his friends. I'm shocked that the XY series would be the last to be aired on Cartoon Network and that Pokemon will be moved to Disney XD. I always believed that Ash would fall in love with May or Dawn because they were amazing. I never believed that Misty or Iris would be the one for Ash. Serena is the winner after all and that Amourshipping has come a canon. Looks like Ash and Serena would become a couple when the time comes. Looks like all the female friends, Ash has argued with during the journey were all childish. Serena and Bonnie are the only two who he never argued with even though Bonnie is not a Pokemon Trainner. There was one argument that Ash had with Serena which was serious, when Ash lost to Wulfric, the eighth and final gym leader of Kalso, he was having some doubts and Serena tried to cheer him up, but Ash lashed at her, so she threw snowballs at him to get him back his senses and walked away. Ash was guilty for lashing at Serena, later got his senses back, and was able to master Ash-Greninja with Greninja in order to save Pokemon from being in danger. Later, the two reunited with Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie including Pikachu and their own Pokemon. Ash apologized to everyone and Greninja for worrying them so much. He even apologized to Serena for lashing at her and she forgave, she wanted to apologize to Ash for throwing snowballs at him, but he told her that the words she said to him got him back to his senses and two days later, Ash won his eighth and final gym badage. For the record, it is about time Ash got kissed.
