    Default IT'S STEPHAN! GET IT RIGHT!

    I don;t know about you, but this running gag of everyone getting Stephan's name wrong has gotten beyond annoying.

    It's reached the point where I think ethey're all doing it on purpose to tease Stephan, because how hard is it to remember his name?

    The Don Battle tournament ran alot of gags into the ground, that's partly why it was a chore to sit through, and was fairly terrible overall.

    Despite the shortness of all of them I did enjoy the pokemon battles during the arc. But the jokes got annoying. I got turned off from Bianca completely during the arc but found her interesting again with the 4th gym.

    >Implying name gags were humorous to begin with.

    I'm not sure why the writers seem to think getting someone's name wrong is the most hilarious thing ever. Because it isn't.

    The sad thing is, Stephan isn't even the most recent example of a character running this joke into the ground.

    It was only ever funny with Butch, and that's mostly due to how over-the-top his reactions would be. But even then, it started to wear out it's welcome. I do agree that the whole 'Kenyan' thing is about 10 years out of date at this point, and am a little saddened that they saw fit to revive the name gag, but at least it's never going to get as bad as the DP hippo ep. Can't rag on that one enough.

    Though on the topic of Don Battle running gags; Am I the only one who didn't get completely bored of Bel's 'thing' with Zoroa? Hell, they did a great job with it in the final ep of the arc, I thought.

    Whatever. I like it, sure it was used about 7 times or more during the Club Battle and I especially liked this one. So to me, it never got annoying, it would've if he kept using the same reaction, but he didn't.

    But doesn't it have the exact same gag in the original? So what's the difference? Besides, I honestly couldn't make out any difference between "Kenyan"'s actual pronunciation and how everyone else said it. ^^

    It is pronounce Stefan sort of it, if you pronounce the a as "Are", they pronounce it as Ste-fern.

    They pronounce it as Keniiyan. Too much pronunciation on the "Y". It's just Ken-yan.

    Like I'v said. I don't mind it, but I wish he had an angry reaction like Butch and unlike Biff, they pronounce the name wrong, instead of saying a different name. So to me, joke has its positives and negatives.
