No. It isn't.
Johto - approximately 79 fillers.
Sinnoh - approximately 34 fillers.
Troll harder, why don't you?
You really are a troll aren't you.
The numbers don't lie. Its as simple as that.
The johto saga was 50% filler. Depending on what you count as filler, the number may change by 3%-4% but similar.
Did I say all of Johto's fillers sucked? Did I say DP was a perfect saga? Stop putting words in my mouth.
Say that 1 out of every 4 fillers is an excellent episode worth a lot of praise. When you have so many fillers you are bound to get a few gems out of them. Johto had some great fillers. But for me, the ratio of good fillers to bad fillers for every saga is the same. But since Johto had a lot more fillers, the number of good fillers as well as the number of bad fillers is a lot.
For the record, filler doesn't necessarily = bad. I don't know why you're so vehement on insisting Sinnoh had more fillers when the evidence makes it clear that is not the case.
Oh wait. I know why. You're a troll. Or an idiot who cannot admit he is wrong. Same difference. Insist Johto is better all you want - just don't rely on bullshit statements like "Sinnoh has more filler".

I find it amusing now how all this person's posts dissapeared, so now it looks like we're talking to ourselves.

Regardless of the lack of filler, Sinnoh's long gaps between Gyms, especially Eterna-Veilstone and Snowpoint-Sunyshore were pretty ridiculous.
Do you think they stretched Sinnoh out because they didn't want Dawn to have two contests arcs or Johto to be re-visited?
Luxray Vision and Tanks for the Memories thrown in there, too.
But the gap between Snowpoint and Sunyshore...
Yeah. It could've been shortened.
I don't see any reason why they wouldn't have wanted to give Dawn an extra arc. I also don't see why they wouldn't have wanted to revisit Johto, but it's possible that the writers didn't feel the need to include another BF or just wanted to span Sinnoh out longer.Do you think they stretched Sinnoh out because they didn't want Dawn to have two contests arcs or Johto to be re-visited?

At least the gap between Eterna city and Veilstone city was understandable. It takes several hours to get there in the games - especially if the player does a lot on the way - and has two cities between them. If you try to think of it as going from Eterna to Hearthome to Solaceon and then to Veilstone, well, you can see why it would take some time. If the Hearthome gym challenge occured when the heroes arrived there the first time, then the Veilstone gym would have been the fourth challenge and would have felt like we were farther along. The writers could have shortened the gap between each city, but they were obviously trying to mirror the games by not treating it like a far away city. Then again, there were only around 4-5 episodes between Hearthome to Solaceon, and Solaceon to Veilstone, so one could argue that they did speed it up a bit after passing the "main attraction" city. Then there was the tag battle tournament, which was necessary and did make the long wait seem shorter, for most of us at least.
The gap between Snowpoint and Sunnyshore, on the other hand, I can partially agree with. There didn't seem to be a reason to stretch that so long other than to stall time for the next generation (which was prsumably the reason), since by that point, another Battle Frontier arc would have been too short to do knowing how close gen 5 already was. But then, a lot happened during that time, including the Grand Festival, so it doesn't matter that much. Though speaking of the Grand Festival, I do wonder why the writers made the decison to have the heroes arrive in Sunnyshore and then come back later after the GF. Why not either collect the badge first, or not go there at all until after the GF? But regardless, there were at least reasons why there were long gaps between gym vicories, and the writers managed to do an excellent job overall of holding our interest until then minus a few uneeded fillers like the Glameow one that recently aired in the U.S. Though it seems I can't speak for everyone...
I feel as if DP was derailed when HGSS came out. That's when they had to start focusing on Johto stuff, like Lyra, the Pokeathlon, etc. and some awful fillers like that Mukrrow/Misdreavous ep...ugh.
Although we did get the awesome evil Togepi filler out of it, so not all the HGSS derailing was bad.
I Think 2 Fillers In best wishes so far

.Dawn Winning Her Last Ribbon
.Zoey Beating Here

The thing with BW is that there are some episodes that seem to be filler until the end when usually TR shows up for just a minute, making the whole episode a non-filler. Depending on the person's choice, the % of fillers vary.
