    Damn right I wasn't! I was using that to insinuate Iris contributes very little to the episodes, often staying in the background like trees!

    Yeah... the age thing... :P

    fff.

    Speaking of, if Iris was older than she seemed, then that doesn't make her taunting any more justified. If anything, she looks worse for stooping down to a 10 year-old's level.

    But I do agree with you that Iris makes as much impact on this show as the trees in the still backgrounds when she isn't being hypocritical and abusing her catchphrase.

    I didnt tried to insinuate how this happened always,but sometimes she just used it trying to mitigate danger with her positive outlook on things.
    Thats not necessarily a bad thing,but to me it just didnt sit right a times.

    Last part of this post contains my answer to that.
    Im not sure if you noticed but lately Iris see to receive more focus compared to her debut days,.Also interacting with characters and bringing up humor in certain episodes counts as character doing something with Iris contributing in that aspect as much as Dento did.

    Than again even when Iris is center of attention you are still not satisfied as it can be evidenced by your comments about recent episode.

    Its called subtle attempt of degrading character.Its no secret that he often complains about Iris being "useless".

    Yes. I have noticed that and you're so right. How can you dislike someone because they don't do much? Most films these days are 99% dialogue and people like them because they make you laugh or have pleasant characters.
    Personally i think, the more a character does the less they interest me. If it's all about battling and saving your Pokemon from TR then the personality suffers for it. Dawn's a perfect example of that. A very active member of the cast but stale as a bowl of p*ss at the same time :/
    I'd rather have someone who stayed on the sidelines and had good interaction and humorous dialogue. After all, Ash is the only action hero that matters in the long run.

    Gible just needs to live up to his reputation of being a bitch and in fear of sounding like a senile parrot squawking the same Misty hate, has moved onto the next obvious target, Iris. Fair play, every forum needs a little b*tch :P

    Just my opinion of course :P

    'You're such a kid' It just sounds kind of rude, and boils my blood when I hear it, because I like Ash's character. Like...what was that name...Hellion said, cool name by the way, 'No need to worry' had a lot of psychological basis, without insulting. That last bit I added.

    I really doubt Iris is any older than 10.

    "You're such a kid"

    She says it almost EVERY EPISODE
    I kissed you in the water and made your dry lips sing
    I saw you look like a Japanese baby
    In an instant I remembered everything...

    From looking at this thread you'd think they should stop catch phrases altogether.

    Everyone's catch phrase is annoying. "You're such a kid" statement doesn't seem like a catch phrase but an insult. They really need to change it.

    With Dawn's it got under my skin, there's something about hopeless positivity that really annoys me. Iris's catchphrase wouldn't annoy me if it wasn't delivered in such a bitchy manner by the American VA.

    Don't get me started on Trip, his catchphrase is the most annoying thing anyone could possibly say!
    His whole character annoys me. He basically just Paul with cabbage for hair.
