In place of 'you are human beings to, enjoy a good meal for once' it's ' Give back the food you stole!' even though they are as much stealing as Ash and company :P.
Yeah I would love to hand food over to people who steal my pokemon. That way they have more energy to steal my pokemon.

I have to say to base a character on a game that has the phrase gotta catch em all has to be
one of the stuppidest things I have ever heard.

Anyway what this all comes down to is a matter of opinion so I will just drop it.

They never are able to steal anyway so I don't see the harm in it :)
"Gotta catch em all " Was also made up for the US market, it was never the theme for the anime in Japan and that is why they have since dropped that slogan becuase that has never been what the anime was about, it was only dubbed that way for a while ;)

I could make a comeback but we would just end up arguing in circles so I will just end it here.

Yeah, personnally I would like the games better to if the where a little more like the anime.Like, being able to carry more than six pokemon would be nice.But the whole dodge thing is stupid, its like Pikachu wants to get hurt so he'll only dodge the attack if Ash tells him to.The first few pokemon shows, most of pokemon chronicles, and some of the movies (I've seen the first one and don't remember the second) where good, the newer ones are kinda sucky.

Agreed.
-.-
Also.
Pikachu is fat.
XP
And they're always too cheerful and friendly...
I mean- REALLY- at their age you'd think they'd cuss or something.

Of course they are not going to cuss, even in the japanese verison they don't (of course, japanese does not have the same level of 'cussing is OMG cool' as English does, they just don't have the need for it (aside from say, serious fighting anime), since disrespect of those higher up than you in Japan is a worst action than any spoken word could be )

Every once and a while fansubbers actually add in cussing that is not really there (when Ash is saying something around the level of 'darn' :P )

Really, being mad at the pokemon anime becuase it does not have elements in it it will never have since it is aimed at very young children in Japan is like wanting them to make a pokemon game with every pokemon ever catchable in it, you will always be disapointed...

I have watched the first three episodes of the newest D&P season in Japanese and am really liking it :)

So am I; it's great so far.

In regards to swearing, I just don't think it would suit their characters - they all seem pretty naive as far as those things go. I think if the characters started swearing I'd probably stop watching, not that they would start swearing of course.

same, i love the newest episodes, even if i can't quite grasp the japanese words they preach, the story is so basic and understandable it's great!, and btw you can see the forth one on youtube now -- wel awhile ago actually but yeah ^^

on on the episode sunject, why is Brock in all the new episodes! i dont wanna see brockl anymore, im actually sick of his face!

and on the swearing thing, i agree hiker matt -- but i do think there should be SOME blood in the shows ... i mean .. how bashed up can you get before getting a black eyes or bleed a little ...

BLEED?! Well for more mature people like you and me and probably many here, is ok, but if its exposed to other 5 year old kids, they will probably freak out and end up in the hospital and Gamefreak will be sued.

Anyways... I really think that Ash needs to change the Pikachu, or get Pikachu changed... I don't know about ruining plot lines but I am seriously sick of seeing Ash being a hero in everything... I think even in movies... well, those I had watched.

The movie on Lugia... and the 'World will turn to Ash'. Like he's some hero...
Pokemon 4ever, he saved Celebi from turning evil or something...
Mewtwo Strikes Back, He stopped the battle or something by running into Mew and Mewtwo's attacks and being paralyzed
Mewtwo Returns, Mewtwo said 'He's a special human, one-of-a-kind'
Latias and Latios, He had to be the guy who escorted Latias to Latios, and the guy who got kissed by Latias...
Jirachi the Wishmaker, he and Max had to be the survivor whereas the others get swallowed.
Destiny Deoxys, He had to be the guy who attaches the card on the tile to save the city.
Mew and the Wave-guiding Hero Lucario, he HAD to be the second-most important Hero, and Mew only revives the rest when it realizes Ash had been swallowed.

I don't know if I made sense above... but Ash always seems to be the hero. Why can't they let the others be one for a movie, or even an episode.

Sorry, I think I blabbered too much.

Well, there's the occasional Misty- or Brock-focused episode in the original series, but Ash is overhyped. Then again, this show is aimed at ages 8 through 12.

On Wiki there's a whole article on it.
Thinking on my feet though in the BF episode "May's Egg-Cellent Adventure", Meowth wants to tell Jessie where she's a real pain in, but can't because "kids watch this show".

The episodes are getting too corny i think houen is the worst season so far i liked the first season best with misty she was a trainer not a dumb coordnator. I think that the first season is the best because back then pokemon was new and they had fresh ideas but now they just keep doing the same things over like every region at the end(bewtween 6th gym to elitefour) theres a new pokemon from the next serious like... 1st season it was marill second it was a wynut now its munchlax what next lol.....
