All Seasons Good Points STAMP by TrainerKelly All Seasons Good Points STAMP by TrainerKelly
Anyone who gets annoyed/disgusted/angry when people think all but the first season sucks.

I believe that ALL the seasons have their good points to them. What are your favourite things of each season?

Here are mine:
Indigo League (1st Season) - It's the first season that had captured many hearts. The original cast of Ash, Misty, and Brock. The three people everyone knows from Pokémon. Let's not forget episode 26; ASHLEY KETCHUM~ =D

Orange Islands (2nd Season) - "Pokémon World"; one of the two English theme songs I actually like.

Johto Journeys (3rd Season) - An all new region. Has "OK!" as an opening theme in Japan, which is a fantastic song. Though it's filler filled, it's still a very fun season.

Johto League Champions (4th Season) - Continue of the interesting fillers (yes, I like ze fillers! 8D) Also has "Born to be a Master", my second favourite dub song. XD

Pokémon Master Quest (5th Season) - Continues with the interesting fillers. Contains one of my favourite episodes.

Advanced (6th Season) - FINALLY. An all new region, new clothes, and a somewhat new main cast! In the Japanese version, this marks the start of some of the greatest Pokémon music of all time! Also the first time a guy actual sung the Japanese opening, which is cool. x3


Advanced Challenge (7th Season) - Oh yes, let's continue with the fact that this continues to have the best music out of the first series and second to me. 8D Yes, it's a fact I think AG has the best music. Also, Misty returns for two episodes and has a new outfit (which I personally like), which was nice. Made me like Imageshipping. XD Togepi evolves and leaves as well. =D (I didn't mind Togepi, but I think it's pretty cool that she let it go.)


Advanced Battle (8th Season) - ZOMFG. HARLEY. <3 ...plus the music in the Japanese version.


Battle Frontier (9th Season) - Had some interesting shippings (Lucy x Brock and Ash x Anabel), as well as some good music in the Japanese version. May's Combusken also evovled into Blaziken~! =DDD


Diamond & Pearl (10th Season) - Personal, this is my favourite season. I love how Ash and Hikari are almost equal in role (in fact, the beginning of the Japanese version reads "Satoshi to Hikari", otherwise "Ash and Dawn", talking about their adventures). I'm a fan of all three characters. I love the way they did the contest this time around. Contest style is frickin' AWESOME. ASH IN A MAID'S OUTFIT, FTW! I love how the role between Pokémon and humans seem almost equal, as well as people and Pokémon appear to actually HAVE personalities. Seriously, who's ever directing this season...awesome job. ((BTW, I'm not talking about the English version here.)

Battle Dimension (11th Season) - *points to season 10* Oh yes. Same stuff. Also includes the fact May returns...IN HER EMERALD OUTFIT. She looks adorable~! Ooo. And the fact that the English opening actually HAS credits on it!

So what about the rest of you? What are you favourite parts about each season? =3

Feel free to:
Journal it, Favourite it, Collect it, or all three!

Didn't draw the logo, obviously. XP Got it from a screenshot I took.

whats a filler episode?

TrainerKelly Featured By Owner May 19, 2014
Filler episodes are episodes that are not significant to the storyline. For instance, Ash spending an entire episode trying to find out where they sell ice cream is a filler episode, while Ash catching a Pokémon is not.

I have to admit I haven't seen every season yet. 
I'm currently watching season 3, 10, 16 and 18 [3 and 18 in the I-net, 10 + 16 on TV] 
and as a child I remember I've also seen a season with May, but I don't remember which season it was.
But I think they r all awesome! 
And I can't wait to see the other seasons too.

Indigo League: the beginning of Ash's journey. The original main cast (Ash, Misty, Brock, and Pikachu). Ash's best Pokemon team IMO (Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charizard, Pigeotto, Butterfree, and more). Also had the most memorable moments in Pokemon history.

Orange League: One of my favorite seasons along with Advanced =D. Introduced Tracey (I personally like him more than Brock, but Brock is still awesome). Charizard finally respects Ash as a trainer and listens to him. Lorelei also appears in this season :aww:. Had some of my favorite episodes.

Johto Journeys: All new region. The return of Brock (although I wish Tracey would have stayed a bit longer). Chickorita, Cyndaquil, and other cool Pokemon Ash caught.

Johto League Champions: Chickorita evolves into Bayleef. The return of some familiar characters from the 1st season (such as Todd, Duplica, Suzy, Aya, and more).

Master Quest: The return of Richie and Sparky.Had some of the best episodes in the Johto region =). Brought back Charizard and Squirtle for a bit, who were even more badass than ever. Also had great battles.

Advanced series: Another one of my favorite seasons along with Orange Islands. Presented Ash and Brock with fresh new clothes and looks. Introduced May (who is my favorite Pokemon girl btw) and Max. Showed Ash's growth and maturity as not only a trainer, but as a person altogether. He still has his childish moments, but they're mainly for comic relief purposes. He's actually alot more mature than he was in the original series. Had some of my favorite episodes.

Advanced Challenge: Torchic evolves into Combusken. Treeko learns bulletseed and evolves into Grovyle. Shows May growth as a coordinator. Flannery also appears here =D. Misty also makes an appearance.

Advanced Battle: Had some great episodes and brought back some of Ash's old Pokemon once again =D. May gains another rival. Also had great Pokemon battles.

Batlle Frontier: Brought back most of Ash's old Pokemon team. The battle between Ash and May was also cool. Combusken evolves into Blaziken. Grovlye also evolves into Sceptile.

Diamond & Pearl: Introduced Dawn. Pokemon have actually shown some personality.

Battle Dimension: Ash's gets Chimchar =). May returns =D.

Will add more later :XD:.

:iconclapplz: Thank you.

Season 1 was mostly nostalgia. Orange Islands had Kenji. <3 I wasn't too fond of any of the Johtos. I love AG because of the brand new start and Harley that came with Battle Frontier.

DP is my favorite because of Shinji. XP Along with a bunch of other awesome characters like Kohei, Aoi and Nozomi. Also opened up a whole bunch of ships like Cavalier, SapphirePearl and things.

Also, Best Wish is a fresh new start but also retains the points that many people liked in Season 1. I also really like Iris and Dento, even though he is a spazz.

The one thing I enjoy(ed) about the latest series (best wishes? lol) is when Team Rockett all of the sudden became badass I saw it an I was all like, "Whhhhaaaa?" I'm not sure if they're still badass anymore, but THEY SO WERE!!!!

OMG. I LOVE THAT PART. I honestly never was a huge fan of Team Rocket, but then they became serious in Best Wishes and I was like "THEY ARE SO COOL, OH MY GOOOSSSH". They still are. ;D I LOVE it. Some people complain because they're too serious, but that's what makes them awesome, in my opinion. Pokémon needs some more serious characters.

I KNOW!! I mean, this is a show about freaking monsters with super-powers!! It should be epic beyond all words! If the show took itself a little bit more seriously it could have been an epic adventure story, now its just a little redundant and dare I say, childish(even for a children's show). In my opinion, THEY need some more bad-asses and less comic-reflief! :D i'm still obsessed with all of the games though ^^
Reply
:icontrainerkelly:
TrainerKelly Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011
=P I actually still adore the show and still actively watch it (actually, Best Wishes is my favourite series so far - only complaint I even have with it is that it's not serious enough, but there's other things, to me, that balance that out). It would be WONDERFUL though for them to be more serious though and give each series an individual storyline that spans until just before the league. I know the overall storyline is for Ash to become a Pokémon Master, but they could probably do more if, let's say, the entire storyline of one series was for Ash to take down a legendary who was causing havoc or something. Then another one of trying to get a legendary back the next series. =P Just...something that would cause some more seriousness.

yeah, in the games they are definitively trying to mix up the plot as much as they can while still staying to what they're known for. I would LOVE to see some more dramatic storylines in pokemon, but they always just leave those for the movies don't they?

Yet, I still have too much of a love for the nostalgia of the old shows to truly appreciate whats in the new ones (p.s. I'm still mad about getting rid of Misty and Brock xD) I guess I'm just an old person now Not to mention, my busy high-school schedule doesn't really let me have the time to sit down and watch the new series as much as I'd like.

XD Yes. ...even though B&W had too much plot in my opinion. >.> *just wanted to get the badges and not have to battle rivals every two seconds ._.; * And yes, they do. =[ Which sucks - they probably would be able to get a better storyline if they did in the show than a movie that's an hour and a half long.

XDD A lot of people do. I feel like I'm one of the few people who don't. >.> I mean, I can watch it, I just don't feel nostalgic over it and probably spend more time laughing over lines I didn't hear when I was younger (...;D Ash asking Nurse Joy to "revitalize" his Pokémon in episode 5. I never knew he said that, nor ever heard of that word, until I payed attention. It's added a new word to my vocabulary, haha.). I have a few theories as to why I don't get nostalgic over it, but meh. XD

Indigo League (1st Season)- I loved the 150 Pokemon that personally would be the ONLY pokemons I really love out of all. The Gotta catch em all theme and the Poke Rap use to sing to it ALLL the time. Misty of course ='( my pokegirl crush when I was young! Pikachu and his ketchup (EPIC) and personally this season had ALOT ofHilarious moments than seasons Ive seen

Orange Islands (2nd Season)- mmm the only good thing I liked about this season was Movie 2 and ALOT of Pokeshipping moments not Dubbed =D one thing ruined it for me was Tracy i dont like him that's just me!
Johto Journeys (3rd Season)- Pkmn Gold and Silver came out!
Johto League Champions (4th Season): Born to be a winner theme
Pokémon Master Quest (5th Season)-Yea alot of good fiillers and Mistys leaving the show crushed me.
Advanced (6th Season)-Never cared for it, Never Watched It Wasnt into Pokemon after season 5

Advanced Challenge (7th Season): Well Misty came back and her new outfit was hot! and then I begin to grw on May I never really watched the AG series throughout but I like the opening! 0_o Togepi Leaving I didnt caee but it was pretty sad I ended up crying.

Advanced Battle (8th Season)-Harley came I LMAO he was awesome, and first time I became a contestshipper I didnt like it at first but then it grew on me! no I wsnt a advanceshipper either because personally I hated May ntil Season 7, Misty in the opening and the theme song itself was Kick ass

Battle Frontier (9th Season)-Never watched when I found how terrorible their voices became I wanted to just shoot the tv so i said FORR GET IT, but I like the Japanese theme song that was a win! SPURT YES!
Diamond & Pearl (10th Season): Never watched the DP series I hated Dawn at first however the english theme did suck I like the Japanses version 10x more the only good thing about the English was the cool bass and beat to the song the lyris were crap though I was like WTF?

Battle Dimension (11th Season): Mmm only episode i saw was May's return her outfit was cuter than her original one and I loved when she got angry when Team Rocket stole all the food my fav moment

Galatic Battles (12th Season): I Just like the opening never saw any of the episodes mybe 1 or 2 but thats it I couldnt get into Pokemon really anymore like i use to

Sinnoh League Victors (Season 13): Now this when I started to like Dawn I fnally warmed up to her and became a pearlshipper I actually watched this season since I was up to date since I didnt see the other 3 seasons but it wasnt so bad and I ACTUALLY Liked it I still hated Ash voice. but his outfit was kick ass in Sinnoh!
He finally twisted his hat around in the semi finals of the Sinnoh League fv moment and Dawns Doppledanger =D

Best Wishes (Season 14): Not bad so far kind of boring though since its like season 1 kind of but Im mad they have a wannabe Misty and Brock but thy aint so bad=D Iris and Dnto mainly because I ship those two only.

My favorite is the Johto region seasons... which seem to be the ones that everyone hates D:
I agree that all season had their good points. Kanto and Johto are by far my favorites, but I think there are many things that Hoenn and Sinnoh improved on. What really annoys me is when an old fan will say the old series was better in EVERY SINGLE WAY, because that's not the case.

Ok, so the Kanto ones are my fav ones, but ultimatly, there's only so many things you can do with keeping with the 'ORIGIONAL 150!!!' (or 151) and Ash-Misty-Brock, so some change to the 'line-up' was nessesary

Every season may have had a few good points, I'll admit...but I'd say the worst point in all of Pokemon is the total repetitive nature of it...a few original things, but, mostly a repetitive storyline...
They could've done ALOT with the Ho-Oh idea...and so much more...they lost so much potential for an actual long term storyline, giving it up for the total of pokemon....So far...there's 5 generations (Four are fully released, the fifth one is still in progress) In my opinion....Its ridiculous.

I agre with this stamp 100%

Of course the kanto series was amazing and nostalgic but the newer series was just as good, I mean i loved the advance battle and battle frontier series cause I really liked May and Max as I thought they were a good addition to the team, plus I like the idea of May bringing in the idea of contests to the anime.

I admit I havn't watched much of the latest series with Dawn but I assume they're just as good, I admit of what I saw I wasn't as keen on Dawns character but that's probably because I was a big fan of May in the series :P

XD I see. I can understand why. Some people don't like Dawn's character because she's overly girly (especially compared to the last two girls) and immature (which I think goes hand in hand with the girlyness), but D&P has brought some pretty interesting things, including full personalities of Pokémon.

I reckon Barry alone is enough for me to think D&P is a good enough series, I just love him he's so hyper and... adorkable :XD:
Plus I also like May's cameo appearence and how she has a Venasaur, Wartortle and a Glaceon :D

I hate when people Criticize AG & DP All seasons have good points like you said, Yes there has been stupid stuff in Pokemon but that doesn't mean the show sucks, and just because Misty isn't here anymore ALSO Doesn't mean the Seasons without her suck. IT'S THE MISTY FANS THAT BETRAYED THE SHOW NOT MAY & MAX & DAWN. Fans who love everything about the show NEVER Betray the Show. I'm okay with people who DON'T HATE THE NEWCOMERS stop watching the show because either TOO much fillers or stopped watching because of the voice change. BLAME 4kids for making the show suck NOT MAY & MAX & DAWN

The Kanto region part of the show, was of course amazing. I'm going to have to be nostaligic and say its my favorite, and really, it was the whole reason I started playing the games.

The Orange Islands at first made me mad cuz Brock left and he was my favorite, but it was cool cuz I liked the different gym challenges and they got to ride around on a Lapras!

The Johto region has my favorite theme song and of course, my favorite Generation of Pokemon :)

The Hoenn part was interesting, though I didn't watch all the episode (I stopped watching pokemon pretty much in the middle of the Johto portion), but I adore May and Drew together XD oh and that BROCK CAME BACK

The Sinnoh time..I started watching some episodes recently and they were good, I especially like Gardenia haha she's freaking crazy. and I love how they did the contests! especially cuz Bunneary and Pachirisu are adorable XP and Buizel is friggin awesome

o_o Ash's voice sounds girly to me as well. I've heard that too that Ash sounds more grown up, but I think that's only because the voice used for him is clichéd for 13 to 15 year old boys in anime where a female is voicing him. XP His newer voice rather offends me. =\ On the other hand, I thought his old voice started to lack emotion hitting season 6, so...XD;;; (Rica Matsumoto for the wiiiiiiin~ *adores the Japanese version*)
