How can it be crap? It made it on the top 100. There are some cartoons that didn't make it.

Thoughts: :rolleyes: IMO, it IS crap...

Wrong; Pokemon actually came 45th in the top 100 (Which was voted by British Channel 4 viewers). It did better than a lot of cartoons, though some cartoons were greatly overrated.

in australia its probably in the top ten i dont think that it would come 73 out of the top 100 cause how many kids have got anything pokemon in their house? and when it first came out everything was pokemon

I myself only watch the movies. CN doesn't play the new Pokemon episodes anymore. In fact, they kinda left off in the middle of the Jhoto Journy series. If it weren't for that, I'd probably still watch the cartoons. As it is, I won't until I can somehow catch up from where I left off in JJ.

It's because nobody anywhere but Japan has respect for Anime (though I don't respect pokemon all too much, it's fake anime). 45 is really good, considering the thousands of different cartoons that have been aired in history.

CN does still show Pokemon, its jest that its been restricted to summers only (hope they'll restart this summer, only they know :rolleyes: ).

Actually, there are quite a few people who respect anime outside of Japan. Many of my friends and their families like anime, and my mom and I are fans of quite a few titles. Also, have you noticed that American cartoons are being redone to look like anime? The most recent (that I know of) being The Batman.

Anyways, I'm not too upset that Pokemon didn't score higher. The series is kinda bleah anymore anyways (from what I've heard, though like I said I would continue to watch it if I could pick it up from where it left off), though I still like the movies ^_^.

EDIT: Like I said earlier, I don't have Kids WB. So I guess I have to wait until summer to see the new epidoes.

Matt
05-03-2005, 04:49 PM

I meant in general, americans like American cartoons, brits like brtish cartoons, etc. Anime shows aren't a widely spread popularity.

Whoop, didn't realize it double-posted. Meh, you know, you didn't have to say it that way. A simple "You double posted" would have sufficed.

Personally, I prefer the Japanese way of animation. It just looks...better, IMO.

Sorry.

And it has a lot more work put into it. I can draw Spongebob in five minutes, but it takes me an hour to draw a good Yusuke (or whatever his name is on Yu Yu Hakusho).

Dog of Hellsing
05-03-2005, 05:24 PM
It's okay ^_^.

And I suppose you're right. I can draw anime-style people and creatures and all better than I can any other style though. O_o Don't know why. Ah well.

Matt
05-03-2005, 05:39 PM
Plus, American Animations are simple enough to do on flash. Anime is drawn frame by frame, by hand, in most cases.

I did a 200 point reasearch project on this exact subject in school last year (A+). It's a very interesting arguement.

It matters cause I only stated getting WB a couple of month ago and it comes in worth $***! (Couldn't see or hear most of the last ep) I need CN to do what they've been doing or I'll have to put out even more money to get the rest of what I haven't seen (first half and so of 4th season, 2nd box set of 5th season, almost all.... make that all of the 6th season {have 2 DVD's, I haven't watch them yet}). I like Japanese anime cause it looks so realistic, but I like American cartoons cause there SOOOOO funny!

"If you don't hava sky"? What do you mean? :eh:

Anyways, I'd like to see the Advance series, just to know how the newer Pokemon talk for my many fanfics ^_^. It's nice to know whether they say their names or make other noises.

EDIT: Meh, I guess it kinda did get slightly SPAM-y, huh? ANYWAYS, I don't think Pokemon has lost any power or control or anything. Look how long the anime has been going. A lot of other anime/cartoons can't claim that (while others can, most can't). And with Munchlax, Rukario, the three other Pokemon (don't remember their names O_o), I think a new generation of Pokemon is coming. So there'll be ANOTHER series and MORE movies to show these new Pokemon. IMO at least.

And on SkyMix 107 -10.30am (Or 10am. I will check when I get home from school tomorrow).

I don't watch the new series much. I still need to watch HALF the Johto series. I loved that series, personally because of the Johto pokemon. Most sooo cute!

Pokemon came 74th on the 100th Greatest Kid Shows or summit like that. Me, my dad and my sister watched up to 71st. xDD

07-16-2005, 08:02 PM
I think it's great it got in the top 100, in fact, I think it's really odd. Was this top thing for most populars, best quality, what? I just went to TV.com and they have a 7.5 rating for the show. That's not bad.

I myself don't really watch the new episodes all too much, but lately I have because it comes on before my favorite show Jackie Chan Adventures so I figure why not watch both? Unfortunately, today, I got home too late to watch it...

Also, depending on what country you're from changes ratings and popularity. Here in the US, anime is the most popular type of style there is and there are a lot of American cartoons being made to immitate the style such as Totally Spies, Jackie Chan Adventures (very little, but it's there), The Batman (done by the same people who made JCA), Avatar, and some other show I keep noticing is coming on... The same thing goes for manga which is the same as anime only put into comic book form and that is also the most popular type of comic book here in the US as well. I have friends who have spent over $3,000 of manga and anime!!! These people need lives... Unless they plan on selling this stuff before it's not cool anymore.

Channel Four [in the UK] viewers voted Pokémon 45th.
Remember that was an opinion poll.
And quality of new episodes has dropped. SkyOne UK is showing new eps on Sunday at about 8am [I think].

Pink Panther 99th. Damn. I love that show. Simple yet classic.

The Pokemon anime does'nt suck in my opinion. But everyone has a different opinion and some people do not seem to understand that *looks at We The Pichu's....*, a top 100 list does not speak for everyone some may think it should have been higher up some think it should'nt have even made the list. This thread has been going for a while and in my opinion is just pointless, some mod please just close it.

1. Jaffa didn't say Pokémon is crap.
2. In a later post, he said it should've been 2nd Place after The Simpsons [since that always wins].
3. You can like Pokémon wthout liking the anime. The games are a major part of the PKMN franchise [without forgeting the TCG and manga].
3a. Personally I like the games [RPGs and few of the spinoffs - Ninty love their spinoffs] and the anime. I've kinda gone off the TCG [then agian I've gone off all TGCs and I've never even seen, never mind read, the manga.

And yeah, I'm still posting. Sue me.

Silver: Yesh, many of us here HATE the anime, but there are those of us who like it. I've been watching the Johto series CN started airing not because I like it, but because I'm just curious about what stupidiy will happen in each ep. As for the games, I LOVE them. Don't play the TCG anymore (no one I know has a deck >>).

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!! (for the Pokemon manga)


Hogtree: I've read the manga, and man oh man, is it different from the anime! Ash's first Pokemon turns out to be a Poliwag, and he catches his Pikachu (it's a rascal of a Pokemon that steals food and causes trouble for the people of the town it lives in). It's pretty cool though. I''ve also read Magical Pokemon Journey, the shoujou manga. It's so freaking cute! *Squees.* I love it.

Pokemon isn't all that great of a show. Only because i don't watch that many cartoons(or care about them enough to compile a list that long), i'd rank pokemon around 20/100.

It's exceptionally funny if you watch it at two in the morning and haven't slept in three days. :goofy: Especially when they get into the retarded grade-school dialogue.

I agree that Sailor Moon kicks arse. I wish CN still played it. I remember watching that when I was going to elementary school in the afternoons: the whole family would watch it. I miss dem days.

Tv show is crap because of Jessie and James. Because of lack of detail(compared to eg astro boy) Very repetitive, Pikachu hasn't evolved and Meowth just gets on my nerves. Although i remotely like the gym battles and listening to music same as gameboy music gives my goosebumps :surp:

Seriosly Pokémon was the first popular anime to hit the west [although a lot of anime fans think otherwise].

Not to say it's the best anime. It's probably one of the worst now.

I mean come on they don't even include the Orange and Shamoutti Islands. It would be fun to visit Slowking and Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno's Islands from the second movie and that village place from that Lati@s movie... Oh yeah and that forest in Pokemon 4ever and that mansion to battle Molly in the 3 movie...
