I don't think the games went down, I stopped with the anime once they changed the voice actors. I'm still a big fan of pokemon though!

And ive got to agree with the thought idea, with visuals of course, like how rain put it.

the "monster of the day" pokemon thing is because during this time, in japan, monster of the day was quite a fad. (Sailor moon, anyone?) I think pokemon just adopted the fad, found it works, and kept with it (even though it's been going on, long after the fad has ended) I'm sorry if I'm defending the original anime too much, but I grew up with it. I can't just cut it out of my life.

well i thought platinum was pretty fun lol, they added quite a few new interesting stuff, although i dont really like the pokemon designs as much anymore=w=;; And that so many things are like a slightly tweaked version of the old games, jubilife is like rustboro, the cycling road's like the one in kanto etc etc. but still enjoyable i guess=w=

haha, i stopped when they changed the voice actors too, tweets, just couldnt stand it anymore when they changed it>A>;; but i really like the early days of the pokemon anime tho, the first movie even made me cry, lolXD

Au contraire, I too have a soft spot in my heart for the anime. The manga was indeed refreshing for me, but I feel a little sad that some people have the one or neither feel about it. I have met more than one or two people who say that just because the manga is really good, that means the anime sucks and isn't worth watching. As Tweetums says, it's definitely one of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of Pokemon. Let's face it, most people knew about the anime before the game, and waaaay before the manga.

Or at least the oldies like me XD who were like 8 when the anime came out. Pokemon was nowhere near as big as it is now when I was little, not to mention manga was nowhere near as thoroughly translated and marketed as when I was a kid, making it tough to have discovered the latter before the former.

That said, I really haven't watched any of the newer stuff, but mostly because I grew up, lulz. I still flip it on when I'm at the gym. TVs on treadmills FTW! XD (and I LOVE Team Rocket. I know most people detest them, but I just LOVE them so much for some reason. Each and every one of em. Well... I actually hated Wobbuffet for a while, but whateves >w<)

And since this whole post was off topic, I would like to provide an on-topic section. pikachu Here goes: I agree with the idea of the colored-in sprites. Also: HERE
(Just so we make sure people know what we are referring to)

I think most people loved the early days of pokemon. *wave of nostalgia

if the first movie got you crying (I did too, XD), you need to watch the japan only featurette, called Birth of Mewtwo. They cut it out from the final English cut, but I think you can watch the Japanese version on YouTube or something. Heck, when I read the sypnosis of the featurette online, I got really choked up. (she didn't even get the chance to live life! *sobs) and considering I'm much older then I was when I watched the first movie...yeah.

...anyways, should we start the poll for pokedex yet?

Oh yeah, I was so shocked at how much sadder the whole story was, because I remember tearing up just at the cut English dub. Sad

Of course I looked it up, and it was so sad and amazing all at once. TAT

"Life is wonderful."
"But why?"

OAO ~shot~

( a link to the birth of Mewtwo? well, here's the english dub at least link-y! Mine's better because it's the whole thing as one)

I thought the person who started the thread can just add a poll?

It seems you two beat me to it.

"life is wonderful". It is! *sobs I'm sorry rain. It's so...sad!

No wonder mewtwo went beserk. And the scientist just wanted his daughter back. T.T

...*sniffles I think we should use yellow sprite of pikachu, just cause the red version of pikachu looks so different.

Yeah, some of the older sprites look oddly one dimensional. I think we could perhaps use the sprites as a design basis and then go from there to a)not have to worry about our style and the game's style clashing awkwardly or b)copyright.

So, you're for the idea of drawing the sprites, by using the sprites as a basis?

Seems fair. A poll is still in order though. Cause some people may disagree.

Yes, that is what I was trying to say in less words. Thanks, tweety ^.^

And yes, someone needs to get a poll up, whether that's the thread author or someone one the mangement team, they just need to make sure that all the points are offered somewhere to vote.

So we've already agreed on the "thinking" to display any important info on the pokedex right?

So all we really need to vote on is which sprites to use and how to use em.

(correct me if I'm wrong, lulz)

well, i felt something on they eyes, didn't exactly choke up tho. But its waaay better than what we have for the pokemon anime now. They say people improve with time, how come it's the opposite for the pokemon animeDX

about the choices, uh, damn i forgot about them too>A> *goes check*

edit again: eh, i think... there's so much confusion going on with the points I'm not sure if i missed out anything(points jumbled in all different areas, repeated opinions and such):

Pokedex: first gen display, updated display, only image

sprites: 1st gen sprites, 1st gen sprites redrawn (pixelated), updated 1st gen sprites, yellow version sprites

sound: Pokedex talks, trainers read aloud, trainers read the pokedex and think it in their heads (a better summary plzDX)

You said and hit home.

I will alway like the anime out of nostalgia. This manga is so must better and to bad not a lot of people besaid the fans know about it. Most of my 150 subscirbers only hard about it form me.

Ironically it was the manga that renewed my interest in the series. The anime has pretty much hit rock bottom and the games are starting to become stale with each new generation (but that's not stopping me from getting HeartGold).

I liked the anime and games before but shortly after finding out about the manga, both reached rock bottom to me. I mean the games are too like the anime. (always about catching all pokemon, too non violent, and always pokemon league and to be the best) Now I couldn't even watch the anime without getting bored after 2 minutes). When I watch that anime, I always feel hatred and ask WHY not the manga etc. and when I read the manga I always say, TAKE that twerp.

No offense but heart gold isn't too interesting to me. First cause I coudn't get a perfect DS emulator and cause its always the same to me (same old game just with a few added things). But I have high interest on HGSS saga. Very Happy

I like the trainers reading the pokedex and visualizing indirectly whenever it displays info cause a computer type of voice wouldn't match at all. The voice on the anime make it sound childish and the new female voice is too soft. It woudn't make sense for them to read it aloud for themselves as well. I would prefer however a softer altered version of their own voice. (like they are whispering/reading a note)

But how do the sprites and the generation pokedex on the poll work? Is the pokedex display for eye catches with the dex holder info just like in the manga? and the sprites, don't tell me we'll do a whose that pokemon thing.

For the sprites I think we should use them as a basis and then draw our own instead of literally just taking the sprite and sticking it on the screen. If we did that it would prevent us from getting in trouble with copyright and we wouldn't have to worry about the sprite style and our style clashing awkwardly. (i think i said this before...it was late O.O) That being said, I don't know which option to click =[
