Default Blood?

If the Anime had blood in it, would you still watch it?

I might. It won't be like the original series that I love and enjoy, but to be honest with you, the new seasons don't have the same....feeling as the original one did anyway.

Blood in the Anime might be interesting. For example, if a Zangoose scratched another Pokemon across the face, you might see some blood.

Or if Gyrados used Hadouken!, then you'd see Pikachu melt into a gooey organic mess on the floor. Wonderful! xD

But all sarcasm aside, I definitely think that adding blood to the show would be interesting. I do, however, think it will get even more flack from Christian Parenting Today for its animal-esque abuse.

but what about the countless times team rocket are having a hard landing D: but we must remember that team rocket + ash are immortal and therefore cannot have blood leakages.
or then ash gets bitten by turtwig. or then croagunk jabs brock, or then meaowth scratches jessie and james.
however, ``pokemon is generally aimed at young children while it may interest people at other ages´´ _wikipedia. as most pokemon fans are less than 10 years old, the show would loose viewers and eventually cancel.

I don't think the anime as we know it would work well with blood in it, seeing how comedic, and unrealistic it tends to be. That said, I would love to see a more serious anime come out that deals with the darker side of Pokémon, and something like that could certainly have blood in it.

It's silly to think that what are basically a bunch of superpowered animals beating the life out each other wouldn't bleed when they're injured, but the show's target market simply doesn't allow it.

To answer the actual question though, yes I would certainly still watch it.

Adding blood will make the show realistic, but could be horrifying. And surprisingly, no matter what attack a Pokemon uses, the opposing Pokemon just faints, it does not die(^^)

I'd still watch Pokemon if it had blood in it. However, I don't believe that it would be appropriate for the show. Pokemon is marketed toward a younger audience. By adding blood, it may drive the show away from the targeted audience.

No, blood in Pokemon isn't an appropriated idea. The max you could see is a bruised or a scratch. Nothing else than that.

I'd still like the anime though if there was some blood anyways.

This is why it would be pretty amazing for the Pokemon Special to be published as a (well-done) anime. Remember when Koga's Golbat bit him?

I don't think blood should be added to the current anime. I think a different anime would be more appropriate, because suddenly changing something like this is a little nonsensical.

I'm all for blood in things like art, roleplays and stories, and even for anime and games (from a pokemon perspective or something) but because the anime is already established for what it is, adding blood would make no sense, be inconsistent, and suddenly change the target audience.

I add blood in my stories, because it makes sense to me. I don't think it's got anything to do with being "dark" because blood is a normal part of life, and it's more something that would happen as opposed to me being like "LOOK AT MY DARK MATURE STORY WITH LOTS OF BLOOODDDD!!!!!!!" because that would be silly. xD

Yes, I would be all for a new show with blood, although I get the feeling that if blood were incorporated, it wouldn't be as light-hearted. They'd probably use it to incorporate things like a more solid story aimed at an older audience with stronger consequences, even if pokemon can obviously die in the current anime. Kind of like blood in other anime, especially if it involved torture or exploding limbs or something. xD

Like others have said, adding blood to the current anime would probably just open the door for criticism to be shoved down its throat since it's now almost entirely targeted towards younger children.

You know where blood would be appropriate? If they made a different anime series.

Word of god, if the Pokemon Company has a large enough adult demographic, they should really create a more adult-themed series (by adult-themed I mean closer to the majority of anime) based more on the manga or even just a BETTER series that takes place in the pokemon world (because even though I enjoyed the earlier seasons of pokemon, it's been downhill for a while with everything going to crap in the new season). How could one create a more adult pokemon anime? Not awful art, not horrible writing, compelling plots, and it could be as simple as that.

No. There's no room for bleeding in an anime such as Pokemon.
No. No. No.
C'mon, it's not right for Pokemon to bleed T_T
