Orange Islands vs Decolora Islands

Today was quite an active Bulbagardenic day for me. It all started by checking ‘News (do this every day) and then to ‘NewsNOW. It was there where I found the infamous scan. Yep, the one that has pictures from 10 Decolora episodes.
Since then, the Pokemon Anime got flooded with Decolora threads about every single ep that was shown, as well as the “Iris/Cilan Leave! Now What?” ones (gotta admit, I started some of them myself). The more I chatted with the others about DA, the more I found parallel aspects to Orange Islands. Consequently, I decided to make a blog entry, comparing these two sagas once and for all.
Let’s start by the fact that both sagas are fillers that take place in island regions, after their respective series’ Leagues (even though Episode N got between in BW). There is either a minor League quest (only 6 episodes out of 37), or no quest at all (yet DA gets less eps, making it equal in terms of filler). Both series got LOTS of fillers, because there is not enough content for something else to be done.
Even the plots of some fillers are similar. Pokemon getting possessed (Pikachu Re-Volts/Meowth n Zoroark), Water Pokemon getting some development yet in a filler way, aka nothing really happens (Bye Bye Psyduck/Wartortle Squad/Hotachi King) and Pokemon debuts as well as random Leaders/Elites appearing (Lorelei and Clair). Also, there is some showcase of next gen Pokemon (Marill/Sylveon) and a next gen movie (Lugia/Genesect).
The similarities are there, yet the differences are there too…
The question is: WHADDAYA SAY?
