I bet most of us here have watched it when we were younger or played the games/still do.

Do you still watch Pokemon?

If they switched Ash with Red or made the series more serious would you watch it?

I think I would, the series seems like it would do really well if there was actual character development and if it was more mature. I mean we have long going series like One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach that have gone on for really long and you don't have to be an 8-year old kid to watch those shows.

I get the feeling you are right, but try as I might I can not find a thread that quite matches this one. At least not one with any recent activity. Going to let it stand.

So this is the real topic of discussion. I have re named the thread to better reflect that since this isn't actually about Pokemon in general like the original thread implied.

Going to let it stand but I am going to alter the title a bit, since it isn't about "Pokemon" but more "Would you watch Pokemon if the show were actually serious?"


Your right! I remember deleting the old "Pokemon" one I was actually surprised that it was inactive. However, back to the topic... I saw some of the new episodes... and I feel that it's not like the first season... it's changed.... Also, if it was serious it would be like some of the manga which were more darker... I would still watch it.... but there are like a million new pokemon now GAH!

i still enjoy watching the movies.
the way i play games make pokemon games boring. starter pokemon will be at highest allowed level before the first battle with the rival. and i get pretty lucky as well, always getting the rare stuff early. and after a few badges im invincible.

well any series is good when you actually give it a good plot. but launching a new style pokemon is especially dangerous in the US.

i think stopped somewhere around the diamond and pearl season. can't remember. second or 3rd season with the dawn.

i check back every so when im up in the morning and needed background noice while i study. and it seems ash is getting some more romance with strange girls.

Pokemon Shippuden.

Haha, I actually noticed they had manga's for Pokemon recently and was tempted to pick up those just to nostalgia and have a copy of. So if they made one that was more serious I would probably watch it. The only reason I don't check out the new Pokemon now is because I am so far behind from when I was a kid.

if they made it serious i would definitely watch it more and care about the future of the franchise more. Even though it is for a younger audiences they could still have serious themes many other shows aimed at a younger audiences have done it, so why cant Pokemon?

HAHAHAHA I would watch that as long as they promised to keep the filler down! Truthfully a "serious" pokemon might actually be sort of fun.

I'd definitely enjoy a more serious show. After years of getting up early to watch Pokemon, at one point I felt like it all started to be the same stuff happening over and over with no real progress in the story/
