Cooking Metaphors by Epifex Cooking Metaphors by Epifex
Cooking metaphors. Cooking metaphors everywhere.

Like, I draw a lot, but I don't make everything a pencil metaphor.
I remember back when the characters were actually interesting. Ash used to be all sassy to Misty, but now he just goes around saving the day with that same, horrible, ever-present smile, giving his Pokemon "Good long rests."
It seems more and more that they're just doing this:


"Hey guys, for the next season of the Pokemon anime, shall we work hard on developing unique and memorable characters with individual personalities?"

"Well, we COULD do that, or we could just give each character a speaking quirk or catchphrase and other than that have them all identical."

"Sounds like a plan."

It's half past midnight. I'll save the rest of my not inconsiderable rant for another time. On a happier note, I'm starting to do comics of my Nuzlocke. They're relatively short, but there's gonna be quite a lot of them if all goes well. Not going to upload them until I have a decent comic buffer though.

Now ash is the repetitive one in x and y, but apparently thats really popular for some reason now. I just wish they made a different series, keep ash just make a different main character! what about brandon? or maybe someone capable of catching legendaries?! How about one that isn't as childish for the older fans?!

I'd like a Pokemon animé with a new main character too, but the sad fact is they've been doing this formula for ages and it seems to work for their target audience.

The anime video of Pokemon black and white 2, was cooler then I the whole anime! I would love to see black and white fighting in the show. Or anyone other than ash! A 10 year with game boy and Pokemon leaf green is better then ash. Really.

What I really dislike is how they reuse the same plots over and over... For example, if Ash gets a fire starter, it always has basically the same story (abandoned by trainer, regains confidence), Squirtles role as "leader of a gang of mischievous pokemon" was reprised by another Pokemon in generation V, first Pokemon caught by Ash in a new region is always the basic flying type, etc.

That, along with the characters becoming less interesting every generation (Misty was great, May was fun, Dawn and Iris are weirdly two-dimensional)... It just isn't the same, anymore

Well, now so far they've broken the streak with serious non-comic relief Froakie (unlike say, Squirtle, Totodile or Oshawott) and 2 birdies (the national one which will double as his Fire-Type 'mon when it evolves, and Hawlucha).

Oh, and it gets better. The Fire-Type Starter Fennekin is not his. It belongs to Serena. And Grass-Type Starter Chespin goes to Clemont. THAT really breaks the streak.

You Happy now? :D

Yea i really dislike the anime. It's getting worse and worse. The movies are that great anymore as well. The Kyurem movie literally had no humans..I found that kind of weird. The trailers make the movies seem like they have great plots, but when I see them, I feel really disapointed.
