What to do about DP and Best Wishes?

On one hand what I like about Best Wishes is the enjoyable cast. I like the characters better (sans Trip), and all the main cast and rivals. On the other hand, DP had much better storylines, battles, character development, rivals and villains.

So with DP I watched more for the storylines and battles rather than the cast, yet in Best Wishes its the opposite. Now I watch more for the main cast and not so much for the storylines.

Its amazing how the anime switched off like this. The DP trio was kinda bland but the stories/battles/development made up for it. Best Wishes on the other hand doesn't have as interesting episodes, but I enjoy the main cast better.

What to do about this? Oh well....I guess I'll just go back and watch AG again! LOL!

    You win some, you lose some with this series it seems. It doesn't really matter what "reason" you're watching the show for so long as you enjoy it, in my opinion.
    Also Ctrl F "Misty", 0 results. What.

    I would like to hear your thoughts on this one.

    That's it for now.

    Well Misty doesn't appear in either DP or Best Wishes. :p

    Well there WAS the lure in DP37 or whatever it was....you know, the thing people took as foreshadowing and spent 4 entire years waiting for Misty to appear in DP and/or meet Dawn and it never happened?

    I remember when that ep aired for the first time, I remember saying, "This might be the writers way of introducing Misty to Dawn without having the character show up," and people thought I was crazy, that instead Misty was getting a DP appearance.

    LOL! Look who was right 4 years ago. So much for the....2007-era Bulbagarden members! WOOOOHOOOO!

    Uh oh.

    The same almighty being who can tell the future who was overconfident Ash was going to beat the Sinnoh League. I guess you were right.

    Don't mean to kill the mood in here but there really isn't much we can do about it. BW is more comparable to Kanto than to DP. Anyone with a brain can see that the writing, character's attitudes and other things have changed. Some people said that they liked BW. Whatever appeals to them is what's important. I just wish that some episodes were more thought out since Pokemon has been on for a long time.

    That's EXACTLY what I've noticed as well about the newer arcs.

    I really don't care much for the battles so much as for the characters, so I actually prefer BW to DP myself. DP probably had the best battles and storyline in the entire series, but the characters were incredibly dull this arc. Conversely, BW has better character chemistry and rivals than DP, but everything else is lacking.

    Both, however, aren't as good as OS or AG, though. While both were very different approaches, I feel there was a better mix of both battles, storylines that were solid, and the main character chemistry in both those sagas as opposed to their successors, which is a huge part of why I like the older anime series more than the newer ones in general.
