I'm not saying that I don't like Pokemon, but I just think some of the things about it are funny.
The only thing I don't like about Pokemon for sure is the trading card game, I tried to collect the cards for the 1st and 2nd generation, but I just gave up after realizing that there isn't much point because I never even 'battle' with anyone, and the fact that I was wasting my money.
The anime was good throughout the first generation, but by the time the other generations came out, the episodes started to seem repetitive. You know, Ash and the gang are doing something, teamrocket (or team galactic)tries to steal Pikachu and ect., then about 90% of the time, Pikachu blasts them away at the end of the episode. Then occasionally there are continued episodes that go from 2-3 episodes but still always end up in the same conclusion. The only difference between the generations is that there are new Pokemon and new people.
The games still rule.
P.S. This is all my opinion and I'm not trying to start anything.
