    Default how do you think cartoon network will handle xy

    how do you think cartoon network will treat x/y. For the past few years they haven't done a good job promoting it.

    do you think they'll treat it better this time around i think they should start treating it like its an original i mean it has been there for at least 8 years

    It's probably going to be treated the same as it was in the past, the reason CN hasn't done a good job promoting the anime is because it's simply an acquisition that it only has the airing rights to, and not a homegrown show like Adventure Time or Regular Show are, which are promoted to hell and back again because they are CN's flagship shows.

    And it's a wonder not that many kids today are into Pokemon anymore...

    The only time I ever see Pokemon getting promoted on CN is on Saturday morning right before the show, and whenever a movie is coming out.

    A bit sad tbh.

    TPCi should go into a partnership with Saban to promote and air Pokemon, i mean imagine Pokemon on the Vortexx. it would be just like the Pokemon on Kids WB days except without the pointless edits and (sometimes) Cringworthy 4kids voice actors. The franchise's popularity in the west could skyrocket to it's former fame.

    They won't give a damn, especially as they have 5 (or 6?) other shows to promote.

    You're forgetting, Vortexx still has strict broadcasting standards, stricter than Cartoon Network's.

    Justice League Unlimited, a show that aired on Cartoon Network, was severely edited when brought onto Vortexx, even to the point of skipping episodes. Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal is also edited (Though this might be Konami's decision, not Vortexx's). One example of edits include the fact that they apparently can't use the word "fight". And if I remember correctly, they use "fight" a lot on Pokémon.

    Not to mention Cartoon Network gets way better ratings than Vortexx. Cartoon Network also airs Pokémon every morning, while Vortexx is only on Saturday Mornings.

    The only bonus I could see putting Pokémon onto Vortexx is the individual episode promos. They make different promos for every episode of a lot of their shows, including Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. Besides that, I see no good coming out of moving Pokémon now.

    It would probably have more edits airing on the Vortexx than it would airing on Cartoon Network due to the CW's standards. Perhaps not too many pointless edits, but there would be most likely more edits. There's also the issue that Cartoon Network gets better ratings than the Vortexx does.

    I could see them maybe promoting the start of the series a bit more, but probably not much more than that. It's not too surprising when they don't own Pokemon so they don't get as much money from it compared to shows that they actually own. Promoting the series a bit more would be nice though, but probably doesn't have a good chance of happening.

    Exactly what I mean, the show is basically just there, and the Pokemon franchise is far less popular outside of Japan because of the nostalgic Gen 1 fans becoming more dominant in the fandom, as well as the scheduling and lack of advertisements of the anime on CN. Kids these days aren't into shows like Pokemon because of it (and because of stupid decisions TPCi has made within the past few years that has driven older fans away from the franchise, but that's another topic), they're into either Spongebob (a show which I keep wondering why it's not dead yet) or franchises that have been around for longer than Pokemon has been (and made in the US and not Japan) like Star Wars, Batman, Transformers, Marvel Comics, etc. Pokemon just isn't viable to todays kids anymore, which is why I feel the franchise is also dying outside of Japan.

    Despite the small amount of promotion, Pokemon still gets ratings, so I don't think that the series isn't viable to today's kids. The franchise certainly isn't dying outside of Japan, but that's neither here or there. Cartoon Network could and honestly should provide more promotion for the series, but the anime is still attracting kids. It's no where near as big as it was in its hay day, but it still does fairly well for a show that has been on the air for over a decade on Saturday mornings.

    I'm sure it will be promoted, but it will be limited to one commercial for each season, like BW. Uncle Grandpa does suck (I heard the online series wasn't bad, though...), and as for RS...let's just say Muscle Man needs to be given a rest.
