    I will say that I did start liking Sailor Moon S once it got to the good stuff that was particularly dark, but the first half - barring some exceptional scenes - were just blah. I think they changed the animation director or something too, because the characters just looked totally off for both the third and fourth seasons...

    ...erm, anyway, you brought up a good point. If Johto had Silver and a plot more faithful to the GSC games (seeing as that's what AG and DP followed to a degree), then it'd certainly be more enjoyable. But I think the most we got was, uh... the red Gyarados?

    But wait? How wasn't Johto faithful to the GSC games?

    You had the dancing instructor/principal of the pokemon trainer's school in Violet City, and he appeared in the anime
    There was the episode that focused on DJ Mary from the Radio Tower.
    They even included a brief shot of the Battle Tower in Goldenrod.
    The Bug Catching Contest was included in an episode.
    Euscine from the games (crystal) and his passion for Suicune.
    Jasmine's Story arc with Amphy and having to go to Cianwood to get medicine
    Clair and the Dragon's Den Arc
    The Red Gyarados and Lance's involvement to stop TR's plans

    I can't think of much from the games that wasn't applied to the anime, unless it's the Ilex forest, or rival Silver, or something else...but let me know cause I may have forgotten something...

    No Silver was the big one, he really should have been used.

    Yeah, he would've been the best rival ever.

    ...Why is Ash still 10 after all these years? He should've grown up by now.

    OK, well it's been almost a decade since those episodes aired, isn't it time to let it go?

    Besides, aside from him, there's not much else from the games that the writers didn't forget to include as many have said Johto's journey took about 3 years, and it was about 150 episodes if I'm not mistaken...Basically, the writers managed to touch on majority of the game plots, so...IDK what the problem is...

    1) The change in VAs
    2) No Misty return since AG, except in photos
    3) No May side story
    4) Ash still having no father seen
    5) Unova's isolation killing return of Ritchie

    not really, if they want, they could make up a plethora of reasons for his return

    OK, it may not be a total killing, but a severe-chance slimmer

    Indeed. That was another thing they improved after Kanto - actually following the game more closely. In Kanto, you could count on your fingers the number of game elements that weren't city names and gym leaders they included.
    So.

    Such as the Tournaments (Princess, P1 Grand Prix, and more), the multiple academies, Team Rocket Gym Battle, the actual control of Mewtwo* (which I prefer), and Todd Snap, though he isn't a bad character.

    *Allow me to be off topic here, but N's actual ownership/control of Reshiram and Zekrom gets a big applause from me. Team Plasma was the only villainous team to control a legendary Pokemon successfully

    I'll bet Paul was created to make up for his absence in Johto. So at least we did get the kind of rival we missed.

    Why on earth would anyone want to see Richie again? The writers dropped him because he was a terrible Ash clone.

    Likewise now that GOOD rivals like Paul and Barry are gone, they have better choices for rivals to bring back.
