Yes, this topic is overdone, but I don't see it anywhere on the first page and people's opinions change. Plus I find it's a good place to start if you're new here. But yeah, do you watch the anime? Why or why not. I used to watch the anime like crazy up until Hoenn came along. I didn't exactly find May and Max appealing...okay I'm being nice. They annoyed me to death. If I'm honest however, the anime lost it's luster for me during the endless filler of Johto Master Quest. Amazing theme song and a few good episodes aside, it just got dull. And then there was Sinnoh and I started getting into again. People got character development, Paul, the battles were pretty good, Team Galactic and J made excellent villians, Paul, and Pokemon evolved. Sure it had it's flaws (Team Rocket reached their nadir here for example), but DP was largely a huge improvement. At this point however, I only watched episodes when their was a Pokemon or character I wanted to see. I haven't watched a single episode of Black and White after the first episode because I don't like what I've been hearing via word of mouth. Team Rocket got cooler but the worst aspects of Pokemon returned with a vengeance: cutesy annoying Pokemon that won't evolve, annoying female character, and Trip because he's not Paul I will admit to that. Plus there's just not anything that's caught my interest. You can really take my opinion with a grain of salt here because I haven't watched it, like I said. Oh, and I don't buy the fact that I'm not in the target demographic anymore. That's no excuse for sucking. I'm not in the target demographic for My Little Pony or Avatar either, but there we go.
