>>24616926 In short: >Yes >Start with Decolora Adventure episode 20, it's a prologue-of-sorts for XY >the dub is a complete disaster these days, watch subs >check the anime general for details >>24612070 It had a shitposter invasion recently, but it seems to have ended now.
Airing/viewing order: Best Wishes Decolora Adventure 20 (not XY, but it's recommended you watch this first, since XY1 has a lot of callbacks to dialogue from it) XY0 XY1-11 Complete Overview!

>>24616984 Also, it should probably be mentioned that XY0, the Complete Overview special and the Super Mega special are combined recap clipshows and sneak peaks of upcoming shit, and can be skipped if you want, though you do miss out on getting as hyped for the events they preview as they meant for you to be
>>24616850 It's pretty bad. It's inconsistent, the animation isn't all that good if it's not the first or final episode, Charizard pandering to the max, disguised as a genwunner present to being a long trailer for Mega Zard X, pacing is abysmal, and the battles weren't good. It doesn't even portray Red as a character I want to root for, just a faggot that is pretty much every little kid that overleveled their starter.
Was only good because of the timing and length. Even then it was too short. Also I think personally that pokemon is weaker when it moves away from "sports" aspect. If it was made in 1998. It would seem pointless.
>>24616876 Agreed. I actually got super hype when I saw the announcement because I thought it was going to be a 13, or even 26-episode series based on R/B/G with maybe a few bits from Yellow. In my head it ended with Red taking his position atop Mt. Silver and leading into a G/S/C/ sequel. Alas, 'twas not to be.
>>24618113 Not only would it create a ridiculous disconnect between what's being said and what you hear, most Pokemon/characters won't have non-Japanese names until quite a while after the series has started airing anyway.
>>24616850 I think it was a wasted opportunity and didn't make good on the nostalgia it hyped. It had the potential to be really good if they'd done a full 13-26 episodes and shown us the whole Kanto journey as portrayed in the original games. Instead we got one gym battle and the rest were in montage, there was one really good episode focused on Lavender Town that was fucked up by them tossing a completely random and anachronistic megastone into the mix, and Team Rocket got to look really threatening for about five seconds until the montage of taking them down happened. The Mewtwo fight was awesome, but I wish it could have been done without the Mega that was totally out of place in an otherwise strictly gen 1 adaptation.
Had they gone 13-26 episodes and shown us all the gym battles, a few of the highlight moments like Silph Co. and Lavender Town, maybe Safari Zone, then had some of the Rocket battles with them actually being scary, like when Giovanni *blew up* the office in Silph Co. and had it all lead up to the climactic battle with Green, followed by the mission to catch Mewtwo as the final challenge then it could have been perfect, even ending on the note of "Now I gotta find Mew!" as a sort of upbeat, open ending. Instead I feel like I watched the beginning of the game and then someone fast forwarded through all the good stuff until the end so all we got were the badass final battles, without any of the trials along the way to make them meaningful.
/vp/ does not hate Origins you tards, it was mostly a couple of horse-fuckers who'd came here to raid on it, like they do with every other media, including tcg, manga and spin-offs. It's not even enough to call it a circlejerk.
The actual anime is mostly agreed to be really bad, even when it's not AS bad.
>>24618869 They didn't start subbing today. Suddenly switching translation style entirely would be incredibly retarded, especially since everyone that has watched a Pokemon sub in their life know what they're getting. It's also how subs for all other franchises where things have other names in English do it.
>>24618887 Kind of disagree, if "things" have names they are usually translated, although often in a literal sense if no other option is there. Do they call the Pokedex for the Pokedex, despite having a different name in Japanese? I see no difference there.
>>24618913 In every gen other than gen 6, there WEREN'T non-English names to use until a good while after the anime series had started. People that follow the anime in Japanese ARE used to the Japanese names.
People think it'd be better when it'd be longer, but here's the thing. Assuming it's still the same but longer, it just meant Red power-leveled a single mon, occasionally throwing others a bone, while still acting a retarded idiot.
It's literally OS/BW Ash but with a double dose of stupidity.
>>24616850 Watch the first episode and make up your own mind since it gives a fairly good impression on the rest of the series. Even then it's just 4 episodes, quite some people don't like the ending though. I sometimes wonder how much bettersee; deader /vp/ would have been if there was a "no rec" rule like on /a/.
