Pokémon S&M

Perverts rejoice!

This show is a celebration of everything it is to be an adolescent boy in the prime of puberty: violence, beaches, and bikinis!

I'll summarize the first episode in four words: Girls, girls and women!

Now that Ash has his mouth virginity out of the way, he can put that dirty mouth to good use: talking to other girls! Holding their hands! Going out with them for long periods of time...no parental supervision! No curfew!

Also, the animation is good. The art style isn't that bad, it's just Ash's design is wonky as fudge. It's weird hearing that voice, coming out of that body, given what we just saw in XY.

It's like Holiday at Aopulco...on amphetamines.

Woo hoo!

I quite like Sun and Moon so far - first 2 episodes especially. Interested to see where it goes / how much it follows the games.

Oh we already know this.

Kozuki Yuuko in Muv-Luv documented a strange phenomenon that ostensibly seemed unique to that game. It was called "ren'ai genshikaku" (恋愛原子核) and it seems to have spread to Pokemon.

I enjoy it!

I will make a longer post at some point this week.

With that said,

1. The show is fun to watch. Simple, but fun. It makes me smile. Not everything has to be XYZ Team Flare Arc level in intensity or Kalos/Sinnoh League seriousness with competition to be enjoyable.

2. The characters (as of episode 11) are all getting fleshed out well. All of Ash's classmates have had their own episode at this point.

3. I like the (friend, but not owned by) effect of Rotomdex, Litten, and Bewear.

4. Bewear. End of story. This has made Team Rocket for this series.

5. Mimikyu.

6. I like the pacing... it's fast! Maybe this will tie things in with what we know about the 2017 movie.

7. Lillie. Daaaaaaamn. Serena, she is your second. Nothing less, trust me, nothing less.

More to come!

So screenshots from episode 14 convinced me to watch this. Now this is canon, and it's absolutely adorable!

Sun and Moon is pretty enjoyable so far. I could blow small things out of proportion like everyone else and pretend this show is something else, but I would rather not. It's nothing super intense, but it's cute fun.

Team Rocket is actually bearable. So far, they haven't interrupted many episodes, and when they do, it's not that bad. They are actually kind of entertaining because of their companions this season. (minor spoilers)
Spoiler: show
I was disappointed that Mimikyu was part of their team, because being a part of Team Rocket often means being mindless cannon fodder, but thankfully Mimikyu has been more. Most moments Mimikyu is on the screen, it's fun to watch. The blasting off replaced by being kidnapped is also nice.


The animation is weird. It goes from awkward and bad to pretty nice with some good attention to detail. I think they try more when showcasing the Pokemon themselves.

I'm not sure how long I will keep watching, but I don't have any desire to put it down yet. Though this show isn't as full of empty promises as XY, so maybe I will stick with it.

Still watching. It's enjoyable, not an award winner, but it's fun, fun(ny), and it makes you smile. Definitely a great de-stresser, but no Game of Thrones with a complex plot.

Very happy with Ash's team so far, the first time im hoping nobody evolves.

I have no idea what direction the writers want to take things

I kinda wish Lana or someone would've caught a Dewpider or Wimpod or something, so we could settle the age-old question- how would Misty react to a Bug/Water-type?

Also, what's the deal with the Horsea and Seadra? Did Misty's Horsea evolve?

And hoping Bulbasaur isn't the only of Ash's old Pokémon we get to see. Kingler and Muk are long overdue for some screentime, IMO.

I like SM. It's fun and light and watching it has a de-stressing effect. The captains (classmates) are all pretty interesting and some of them are surprisingly fleshed out.

I still can't believe that

SM21 spoiler
Spoiler: show
the writers had the balls to kill off Stoutland, who was basically a recurring character by that time. Granted, he died of old-age and its body wasn't show on screen but still, wow.

"fleshed out" is a great way to describe a series focused around sun and swimsuits.

Spoiler: show
Even Misty strips.

The new episode is like, more faithful to the G1 games than Z Origins is. Well, Origins was a FR/LG adaption, but I think this episode has raised my opinion of the S/M crew after the rather rough transition from Ash's divorce to Hawaii.

Spoiler: show
The Sun/Moon characters get wrecked so hard.


Also a bit unrelated, but since I'm paying attention to Pokemon at the moment -

Remember when we were discussing Ash's champion team? There was something I neglected to notice at the time that was pointed out to me: Red's team consists of either event Pokemon (Eevee → Espeon, Snorlax) or starters (Pikachu, Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise).

If we apply the same standard to the anime, the only event Pokemon Ash has had is Snorlax. The vast majority of Pokemon he's owned have been starters, since he's caught all three each generation.

Excluding a hypothetical event Pokemon like Ho-Oh, I would have to say Snorlax gets on the team then. So that makes 3 Kanto Pokemon and a starter from Kalos, Sinnoh, and Hoenn. I don't think any of the S/M Pokemon are really worth it.
