why does /a/ hate him so much?
>>
He marked the point when the manga turned shitty.
>>
His arc was complete shit. At this point, the manga seemed out of ideas and good characters and Emerald just exemplified that.
>>
>>115291219
emerald wasn't so bad...yellow was worse

>>
please respond
>>
Wally should have been Emerald, this shit is literal shit. Especially since he had Ruby and Sapphire to compete with
>>
>>115291001
No he didn't, there were arc's in the manga that came after him that were just as good as some of the first few stories, but no one tends to give them a chance because this dick killed all enthusiasm to keep reading.

Diamond and Pearl was similar enough to Red/Green in quality, although without as iconic leads despite still having some charm. However Emerald killed most peoples desire to keep reading.
>>
>>115292186
Her pokemon were shit, her healing wasn't very useful while in fast paced combat. She's basically invincible if it's a long series of easy battles, but weak if it's one strong opponent.
>>
>>115292931
Really I thought Dia/Pearl/Platina were better main characters than a lot of the others. I'd only place them below Gold, Ruby, and Sapphire.
>>
>>115293056
They weren't as iconic, but they had more charm and personality all around than a lot of them.
>>
>>115292186
You don't fucking know what a Mary Sue. Kill yourself, you retarded bandwagoning faggot.

>tfw only played the first 2 generations of pokemon games
>tfw reading Pokémon Adventures after the first 2 generations and it doesn't resonate with me the same way RBY or GS did

I even tried to play pokemon emerald so that I could get an appreciation and familiarity with 3rd generation pokemon games but it didn't help in the same way because I was just rushing through the game to get to completion rather than soaking the game in for enjoyment like I had with countless hours of the first two generation games.

And I don't find the pokemon games fun enough anymore to play them for real.

So cruel.

I'll never be able to read the later arcs of pokemon the way they were meant to be read.

I'll miss out on all the things I know happen in later volumes like Red + mewtwo vs. Giovanni + deoxys, and Lance and Pryce fighting legendaries.

Either I'll miss out on them or I'll force myself to read through to that point and find the experience hollow compared to the RBY and GS.

>>
>>115298704
Ugly personality, ugly design, bullshit levels of better trainer than all of them even when he shouldn't have that kind of ability at all since the most experience he's ever had with Pokemon is living with them once, hates Pokemon, and is just a terrible person.
>>
>>115290950
I don't even know who he is or where he's from, but I already hate him. What an awful design.

>>
>>115295759

Don't worry about it. Playing the games is pointless for what you want because they're all literally re re re re remakes of R/B/G except with different villain names and different pokemon.

Special's where the story's at. The writer for the series deserves a medal.

>>115290950
Because crystal NTRs gold with emerald

At least Ash liked Pokemon.
>>
>>115292186
She was pretty mellow for a main character, which was fine considering her age and relevance to the story. The main focus was for the elite 4 + Lance, anyway, which was baller. Don't tell me that final fight didn't give you an erection, anon,.
>>
>>115292186
She was probably the least sue character in the series.

her pokemon team tended to be the weakest and her own skills weren't all that good either.

It was and still is the worst design of the whole manga.

I never really saw the point of this character, now if Wally would have been named "Emerald" in this it would have been ok.
>>
>>115290950
He's like a worse Yellow that did literally nothing of value beyond muh forest genes. Sceptile was wasted on him and the implication that he won the dex holder tournament is disgusting.

>>
>>115308164
I don't blame him, really. This manga jumps chapters like the anime jumps women.
>>
>>115308164
I don't blame him either. I mean, holy fuck, I stopped following during the Platinum arc because the scanlators were mad at the releases schedules as well. And that was like four years ago or so.

I have no idea how are the volume releases. Bimonthly? Every semester?

I was so mad at Emerald for the simple reason that I started reading Pokémon Special to get a Pokémon story that didn't revolve around a borderline retarded protagonist, but the Emerald arc gives you exactly that.

All the other protagonists are serious, they bring a nice fresh air to the concept of the franchise since they treat pokémon as serious business and they seem to be aware of how dangerous things is, but Emerald has none of that. He reverts to that "Let's all be friends" atmosphere that turned me away from all pokémon media outside of the games.

Red really suffers from being the first protag, he's potentially the strongest of all Dex Holders but also least developed since the first arc was REALLY simple, it was good to see him get some development in FR/LG, even if it wasnt as much as others got. Gold had the crisis where he tought he's nowhere near others because he's not a battler/trainer/etc. Ruby was hiding his powerlevel because he scared Shaphire when they were kids, dunno about rest, haven't read other parts yet, but I do remember reading some chapters of BW and Black also had some character development moment

I'd have liked Diamond and Pearl more if Pearl hadn't gotten so shafted. He served more of a medium to develop Diamond, and even if Diamond was a super hardcore badass even while being a lazy ass motherfucker I'd have liked to see Pearl in a better position.

Satoshi's anime is ideal. If you are writing something more ambitious than the teletubbies you're edgy acording to them

>>115323774
They gave personalities to characters that didnt have them. Not that you can appreciate that. Refer to my first comment in this post.

>>115324064
The first one didnt seem like he was trolling. I'd expect /vp/ to be this retarded.

Look back at the story in the R/G/B games. The protagonist is a new trainer just starting out on his journey, but he defeats the main villain 3 times over the course of the game. How is anyone suppose to take Giovanni seriously if he gets curb stopped by some rookie every time they battle?
>>
>>115324155
That's the reason /vp/ hates pokespe though. I dont know about Space Bros, but /vp/ actually thinks pokespe has a big annoying fanbase(that somehow struggled to get regular scanlations and is still behind to what's being published). It's one of their worst boogeymans.

It could be parallel to the reason /a/ hates Naruto.

>>115324181
Nah, I've been on /vp/ since /tr/ days. It has always been shit. It's the pokemon fanbase the problem.
>>
>>115324190
introducing original characters (do not steal)
>>
>>115324255
Then people would put those in the OP of this thread and we would have more pointless characters.

the games have 8 gym leaders,4 elites, 1 champion, 1 rival and 1 MC, for a total of 15 good characters against TR who has Giovanni.

Making some of those "good" characters bad was a brilliant decision because it also gave them more personality than saying two lines. And also, they all turned out to be anti heroes, including fucking Giovanni so it's the same anyways.

The only people who would complain about that would be the pokemon fanbase.

Making you people butthurt.

And yeah, a great job.
>>
>>115323774
There's a reason why the anime and manga media are said that they are BASED on the original games.

They are not obligated to be a complete copy-pasta of them. And honestly, unless they had to, why would they?

Satoshi's anime treats most villains like a joke, in Special they make them more serious and menacing, other manga make them sadistic or lolrandom. Same with the main characters.

Hell, even Pokemon Origins, OVA's that are supposed to be closer to the games ended up having their own things with the characters.

My point was that they couldn't just copy the the games story verbatim like people were bitching about. They had to make some changes to have the story make sense, which is why they had some of the gym leaders working under Giovanni. The author writing the story at the time based the story on the canonical events of the game and saw the problems with the story and did what he had to to fix them.

>If you are writing something more ambitious than the teletubbies you're edgy acording to them

I could understand if they have a preference towards the Satoshi anime, but what's so wrong with writng somethimg more ambitious? That's ridiculous.

I mean, the Digimon franchise might not have a lot of outstanding games outside the Pendulums or V-Pets, but in the anime department they sure take some risks most of the time.

Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers (the latter especially) are some of the best examples of merchandise based shows for children that while still covers what their funtion should be (according to the executives and toy depts.), do not wussificates everything or insults their intelligence.

I agree with you though, /vp/ is just this retarded.
It also because of the fact they have this boogeyman of people that like pokespe to look cool and they have to be cotnrarian to that since /vp/ cares more about looking cool than pokemon.

from what I've seen, most of the time people who bring up pokespe (either to defend it or shit on it) don't even read it
whenever they talk about how pokemon are killed in it they always mention arbok's "death" even though it didn't die, but they don't mention the magmars giovanni killed
onix didn't really die either, I think its body can just split like that because Brock used it again later on

>>115329862
Hard to say if he's just being that way or if the time-line shift actually did change something, since apparently Sapphire still has pieces of using the crystal in her but he doesn't? Emerald arc seems to have fucked with everything in general, while they left it at a nice place originally for that relationship.

We can only hope ORAS fixes everything.

Considering the ORAS designs means he has to admit it's a hat now, most likely he'll have to admit everything in a few ways and live openly now.

It's shown how it was foreshadowed at the time when he uses it, but it was still something of a write off.

Back during the first volume he defeated a Seviper with one move while Sapphire was knocked out, and used the same pose when calling his mon.

If you want someone to just say what you want to hear like >>115318656 then that isn't hard. I'm not even saying it was really good foreshadowing at all. However they did sorta try to claim at the end that this was a clue somehow.
>>
Man, I knew Norman was the badass type in the games (no matter who you play as) but in this manga is quite hardcore.

I like that Ruby, even though he stands for his own style he also seems to have sort of inherited some of his father's features.

By the way, what the hell is going on with the capchas right now?. All numbers.

Seems that if something is in Special and the creators end up liking it enough, they'll put it in the games(remakes).

Silver being Giovanni's son confirmed in the remakes but from the manga first, also the part about Ruby's hat, although supposedly that was confirmed some time before perhaps.
>>
>>115340465

>Silver being Giovanni's son confirmed in the remakes but from the manga first

Uhhh, no.

It was still implied that Silver was Giovanni's son in the old Gold and Silver, through the Serebi event that was only in Japan at that time. Don't remember if sais event was available in the western versions, though.

The writer of Pokespe expanded upon it later.
>>
>>115342362
Can't say I recall such a foreshadowing, the earliest it might have been talked about in the games was generation one remakes. Although that was just a small mentioned that Giovanni had a son with red hair.
>>
>>115342655
No really, I'm talking about the actual Generation II games, the original Gold & Silver.

Not only Silver's personality was a little bit more abrasive, but in the Japanese versions you get Serebi through a Nintendo event that unlocks a mini story event when you go to the Ilex Forest shrine. It was the Pokeball GS (Yes, That Pokeball GS).

The Pokespe writer took a cue from that event and helped expand Silver's (and by extension, Blue's) background.

And naturally such thing would be on the remakes. The difference is that is easier to unlock the Ilex Forest event in these.
>>
>>115343683
What did the event do to imply he was Gio's son?
>>
>>115343739

Danm, I'm looking for it, but the only info I find it's about the revelation taking place in the FireRed/GreenLeaf and HeartGold/SoulSilver versions.

Which it's strange... because I read about the Serebi event and Silver origins in a magazine and that was around than 13 years ago.

That's why I was never surprised that Silver was Giovanni's son. Seriously, this is strange. If only I could find the original script or something.

The first mention of Giovanni having a son was in FRLG. Giovanni had nothing to do with Crystal's GS ball event (there are videos of the event on youtube), only the Celebi event in HGSS.
Absolutely no foreshadowing before then so maybe they thought Giovanni being Silver's dad in was done well in Pokesupe so they decided to add it into the game canon.

I didn't like Emerald and I didn't care about Yellow. I don't even remember what happened in their arcs except for everybody being turned to stone. I did get through them, though. I only stopped reading because it was a pain up the ass to find scans and they updated slowly, this was a little after the BW arc started.

>>115292931
Diamond, Pearl and Platinum were great leads though, unlike all the earlier arcs they all traveled together most of the time but they portrayed the group dynamics well and they balanced each other out. My only beef is that DPPt dragged on for too long, and the Platinum arc itself wasn't that interesting.
>>
>>115316753
Pearl was arguably portrayed as the one among them with the best potential as a battler, even if Platinum was the one who challenged the gyms they keep pointing out that his skills and instincts are unusual. Both of the other two are shown training extensively when shit goes down but Pearls training montage is just him struggling to catch pokemon. Even when Riley drags Dia off to train he points out that Platinum's got experience while Pearl's got natural instincts and others also comment on him being like his father.

I dunno, Pearl was my favorite among those three and I really don't think he got shafted, he's definitely the most intense of them.
>>
I think I dropped PokeSpe halfway through the Platinum arc. No/Shitty scans at the time and from what I hear it still isn't much better now.

Did the HG/SS arc show who won the Red?

>there's nothing in the anime as retarded as "i'll become a bad guy and kidnap children and legendary pokèmon to get a Celebi and turn back in time to save my lost Pokémon while i could have simply searched for it".
Have you even seen the anime?
"I spent like 700 episodes on how I want to be a pokemon breeder but instead I will be a doctor"
"Remember the GS ball? Me neither"
"I swear I'll pick Primeape up again"
And the movie where they forget everything they learned.
ANd I could go on, there's nothing more retarded than the pokemon anime series. At least Pryce story had clear motivations, he got driven by it and it got into a logical conclusion.

If you go into pokemon expecting seriousness is your problem anyways.
