    Eh, let it be serious when needed and light the rest of the time.

    Remember: the producers have to be THE most timid people in the Anime Industry when it comes to being dramatic/serious. Pocket Monsters fears to go where other animes go without a moment's hesitation. Samu hit the nail on the head...twice!

    Yeah, OS did have the best humor in my opinion. If they had some moments of humor along the lines of OS along with the seriousness of DP and AG, that would be great.

    If XY ends up being like DP...well, let's just say that DP is my least favorite saga, mainly due of its tone and animation.
    I'd love to see something like AG or BW instead.

    I'd be fine with DP seriousness with some genuine OS humor.

    Just anything unlike BW would be good for me.

    What kind of tone? A tone that is better than what Best Wishes was. I don't care about OS, AG, DP this and that, I just want something better than whatever it was before.

    -I was never a fan of humor. That doesn't have to be a major thing when everything else but that sucks.

    -We don't just need character interactions alone to carry an entire series. Have these characters engage in more actitivies will be better for them.

    -We don't also need 5 to 6 people in a group just to make things interesting either. Since it seems to be hassle for them to handle two extra characters on the show other than Ash, than I rather not feel sorry for them.

    -Mascots don't have to be just walking cute plushies. You can still make them badass. There is also nothing wrong with evolving. Most kids like evolutions just as much as the plush pokes. Give Ash's team a chance.

    If there is to be a tone in XY, I hope they don't make these same mistakes.

    I can see it being pretty goofy. More so than the other ones...

    OS, AG,BW had a much better tone then DP.

    XY should have an really great tone as long as it doesn't turn into crap like DP.

    I'm getting the feeling that this is going to be a goofy series more than a serious one, but as long as it's not how BW was (an inconsistent mess), I'm fine...

    I agree with you, the anime is often timid when it comes to going into dark and serious topics, and usually tries to avoid being realistic as much as possible in favor of more childishness. I know it's a kids show and all, but still I wish it was more realistic at times.

    Guys, you're confusing tone with writing.

    Is the writing going to improve? Who knows. Is the tone going to change? I highly doubt it. We are not their target audience so I wouldn't really be shocked if they kept the same overall tone BW had. However, the colors do look a bit different than from BW which was really bright and colorful, they're somewhat warmer, so I don't really know. They might change the tone.

    But note this, even if they change the tone to something more mature, there is no guarantee that Ash will become more competent, or that the battles will suddenly become amazing. Tone is tone, nothing else.

    Anything that is not something like DP. I'd rather have something like AG. But something like BW could work for me too, if the writing would improve.

    Tone isn't writing. A series can be light hearted, fun, and well written with great battles. It could also be dark, but poorly written with shitty battles and scattered character development. I don't care what the tone is, the writing just needs to be better. Will it? Who knows. But either tone is fine with me, and knowing Pokemon it'll be you know, light like always.

    I agree with this. I can't imagine it ever really changing either, it is Pokemon after all... the target audience is always going to be younger kids. :)

    XY's tone will be how the Pokemon series tone in all has always been friendly and happy.

    Honestly people over hype DP's tone it wasn't serious or dark the goofiness just wasn't as heavily portrayed as it was for the other series.
