what pokemon just simply lacks is a deep story and longer arcs. What got me interested in the anime again was the meloetta arc, it was long(15+ eps i think), team rocket had a plan that lasted more than 1-2 episodes, team rocket was ACTUALLY sinister looking and often got away rather than blast off, no annoying TR motto, return of GIOVANNI, and an EPIC legendary battle.
And guess what they did in the next arc, the reshiram arc. short(3-4 eps i think), pathetic story, team plasma seemed sinister but the ending was just INSULTING, and WTF kind of legendary battle was that!
I hope that this new pokemon anime will be good, i hope it has good arcs and a more serious story line. There doesnt have to be dying or anything too graphic, just look at Fairy Tail, Not a drop of blood has been spilled yet it was an awesome anime. I also hope for more emotion in the characters, a deep story about the character's past and them resolving it in not 1 episode, and most important of all, DO NOT RETURN THEM TO BEING NOOBS EVERY NEW REGION! A new main character for every region is much more preffered. May this be my last hope for pokemon.
