Coming from Kanto...Trying to watch Unova

I got back into Pokemon after not playing since Gen. 2
I never stopped watching old Cartoon episodes of the first season occasionally
But I got back into the games with Black, SoulSilver, Platinum, and now Black 2

I've been trying to get back into the cartoon
But I feel like a serious fan of the original show, it's difficult to watch
I actually kinda think that the show has gotten better as the years went on
But I miss the campy corniness and Ash was kinda like a dumb kid and they basically wiped that out
Ash isn't the same guy, I miss the old Ash
I also cringe every time he talks of old times because it doesn't make sense

The original show was like a parody of the games if you think about it. It was fun, goofy, and featured those running gags we loved. But it probably had a ton of filler, a lot of COTDs, and I think the quality of the show now is overall better. But I can't get with it completely. Maybe it's just growing up
Compare watching at age (8-11) to now 23 lol :-P

Nostalgia got me down. Thoughts?

    Don't worry about the anime. They destroyed it and you don't need to watch it to enjoy Pokemon. Heck, I'm of the opinion that it never was really all that good.

    Don't feel like you're the only one wizdom. There are lots and lots of people who share those sentiments. A lot of it is nostalgia I can't deny that. The anime has just lost all its magic for me. I still watch because the show is entertaining but i've lost the feels I used to have whilst watching the original series.

    Kanto was awesome and every season that has followed since has been enjoyable. I definitely don't agree that it/was never good.

    Thanks for the reply

    I agree that I don't need to watch it to enjoy

    Elaborate on your opinion that it was never that good because you could be right I just need to hear more

    Hey thanks for your reply too man
    Yeah I feel like it was true magic I guess because we were younger and it was something new. Something that was ours (it was an old cartoon that our parents watched even though I love those too)

    I think the fact that they keep Ash at 10 kills it for me and it kinda makes no sense
    I think it would've been more enjoyable but isolating too if they changed with the game character every region
    It would've been awesome to see Gold/Ethan step up in Johto and then at the end he would've battled Ash to close out that saga
