Hey, so I've made it to Nimbasa Gym.





Wow. Just wow.

Literally everything bad people say about Best Wishes are memes or lies.

Ash is dumb? Not true.

Iris is annoying? Not true.

BW is comedy focused? Almost all the episodes are battle focused.
There was a 5 episode long stretch with the Don George tournament, with nothing but battles and the characters having fun interactions.

This makes me want to bully the BW bashers so hard. It's like the slander against SM but magnitudes worse.

I believe XYZ had singularly the best:
Theme song, by far and away
Battles, by a landslide (not counting alola)
Animation style, by a close margin with B/W
Also it had Ash's only Pokémon with only one loss (I think)

I honestly can't say I enjoyed any of the anime after Misty left, but anything before the point Brock left is...passable, I suppose.

I think there will be nothing better than his beginnings in Kanto

Literally the ENTIRE series is after Misty left, lmao. Misty's only in less than 20% of the animes total episodes now. And I really don't know how anyone can enjoy sitting through the repetitiveness of the Johto saga over any of the sagas that came after.

Brock was legitimately the low point of the anime for a decade and his role in Hoenn and DP is so bad he might as well have not come back at all. The writers getting rid of Brock should have happened a lot earlier and most didn't care for his repetitive presence for years.

What exactly was your point with those screenshots? Those are from the episode where Ash was literally too dumb to plan his gym battle properly since he made the amateur mistake of only preparing one Pokemon (Palpitoad) thinking that it would be enough to sweep Elesa's team, then he had to rush out of the Nimbasa gym to get Snivy because again, he was too dumb to prepare a back up plan ahead of time. Also Pikachu won the gym battle for Ash so Ash's earlier comment about relying too much on Pikachu ended up being pointless.

By the way earlier you posted that screenshot of Ash saying that Pokemon battles aren't all about type compatibilities, which is ironic because at the Nimbasa gym his whole strategy at first was to use Palpitoad's Ground type powers to his advantage against Elesa's Electric types. See that's why people hated parts of BW; Ash was inconsistent as hell.

That doesn't negate what he said, Scott. Maybe he just liked the vibe of the older episodes or maybe he liked Misty herself.

There are words on those screenshots. You would do well do read them, since they completely contradict everything you said.
