Y'know, as excited as I am for the XY anime - and for Serena showing up in some form or fashion - I almost feel like most of that is just excitement at the prospect that maybe there will be less vitriol in general towards the anime. Granted, it's possible nothing will change or things will change in such a way that members of the community are even more displeased, but the possibility that it could be received fairly positively within the specific group that regularly watches the anime is kind of exciting and relieving at the same time. I think there are a number of really valid criticisms towards the series, and I definitely believe that people ought to be allowed to express their opinions and feelings over media, but the extent to which individuals respond negatively to this series is almost exhausting to read through.

So, while I have very little specific things I want to see done, aside from more consistency in terms of writing the individual battles and general skill level/strength of various trainers and their Pokemon, the thing I want most out of Pocket Monsters XY is for it to be pleasing to most people. Granted, I know there are chunks of fandom that have totally different desires from the anime, but still, I'd like to see a series that manages to get better reception than its predecessor did. Somehow, lol, if that's even possible, which it may not be.

    Yeah, the BW hate really is exhausting. I find myself wondering how people actually don't get tired of constantly spouting the same nonsense about it every single day. If it's any worth, people might like XY anime. Or not. Everyone are being too optimistic about this and when XY finally airs they will be complaining about how much XY sucks because what they got does not fit their ridiculous expectations and how writers tricked them into thinking it was something good.

    That's the Pokémon fandom for you. For sake of my own enjoyment and stay at these anime forums, I truly hope XY are received well. Because the hatred makes it unbearable for me.

    They just need to learn how to make anime that Pokemon fans regardless of age/ fandom background will enjoy without some groups feeling brushed off, alienated or screwed over. I'd say they lack consistency and could probably do with better communication with anime viewers.

    Unfortunately the anime fandom is split on what they like. Some people like inbetween, some want serious story driven characters with development, some want light hearted and comedy, others want heaps of battles while others don't want it battle focused. Some want contests back and other want certain characters back.

    It's not possible to make an anime to please everyone anymore.

    Pokemon is what they call an unpleaseable fanbase. It's too split now.

    The best we can hope for that it pleases a majority that overtakes the minority that are not happy with it so there isn't as much complaining.

    Exactly. This is the truth, more or less. So much has changed over the last 15 years the Pokemon Anime has been on the air (16 in Japan, but you get the idea) that no matter what happens, people are going to be displeased with the outcome of things. There are so many characters now both new as well as old, many of the older characters have changed in personality over the years and some would argue have even been flanderized, the writing styles varies among the different writers, the animation has changed, the voice actors, intros/endings, as well as the script writing have changed in the dub, the outfits have changed from region to region, there are so many different kinds of Pokemon now. All of that added together makes for a scenario where no matter who gets what they wanted, someone is left upset. It's very sad, but true.

    I guess the only thing we can really do at this point is support whatever comes our way and look for the good in it, or what we like from it. Sure the basic plot and premise of the anime have remained more or less the same since EP001 aired, but nearly everything else has changed. Whether for the better, or for the worse, is up to the individual viewer to decide. It's simply a matter of opinion where no one is right or wrong. That's my belief, anyway. I'll always be a fan of the way the anime was handled in its earlier seasons myself in most ways, but there are things from the newer seasons I enjoy, like the battles and rivalries. That's just me, though.
