He isnt lying in terms of good quality. i dont watch it all exactly but what i cantell the anime is absolutely great. From animations to story/filler etc. Not to mention spin off mega evolution specials now mix in the anime. This might be where the main character might actually win the league too xD

Oh, I thought in terms of ratings. As for quality, it's hard to take it seriously with Ash not aging at all, and pikachu being unable to beat weak pokemon after all that training. Ash also seems to lose his abilities as a trainer randomly, which makes it impossible for me to watch. Then again I haven't watched it in ages so maybe it got better, but I doubt it.

It actually has gotten so much better. Unfortunately BW kind of killed a really good series. (DP) But XY does the anime so much better in general. It also has some of the most interesting fights in the series. Ash isnt stupifyied luke he was last gen lol

Pokemon always gets good ratings in japan, like Detective Conan or One Piece level. And the quality hasn't changed. I'm watching XY and it's the same from 10 years ago.. so yeah

Gen 4 had best league and gen 6 is best overall imo. Definetly not the same. Ironically gen1 was by far the worse in terms of how things wrnt with gyms (like ash gets half of the badges without actually battling/winning)

I guess it depends on perspective. Ash is more competent now. Just yesterday, he almost beat Diantha's Mega evolved Gardevoir with Ash Greninja. Serena seems to have taken a much more realistic approach as she started out not really knowing what she wanted to do (which is true for most people growing up). The battle animations are much better compared to previous seasons and the main characters are getting more fleshed out.

Oh yeah, the animation is better for the most part. But for me it's still the same lol don't know about the last season that's airing now.

You're right. I just checked. Not One Pience level, but top 10 which sure is impressive. I guess it's just not that popular in the rest of the world. When I was a teenager everyone was watching Pokemon.

Well I'm probably not one to talk, not the biggest Pokemon fan.. anime or games. I watched until Diamond & Pearl and for me the best one was Johto arc xD

Depends on the week as well. Sometimes any of those 3 (OP, Conan or Pokemon) gets an special episode or pre movie hype episode and the rating increases a lot for that week, but yes probably One Piece is a little more popular overall
