When kids stop watching it, or worse yet, the games stop.

eh, Pokemon won't stop when you think of it. Cute little creatures saying funny names and doing cute little attacks? little kids will never not want to see that, even if it DID stop, something identical would take its place. Keep something in mind, you say its stupid now, but how much older are you? To qoute a comic I read once, which..had more wisdom than I first realized: The pokemon aren't getting stupider, your just getting older. Yah, to this day I think Gyrados is this adorable little sea dragon (whose like 27 feet long, but little in my child mind!) but I think all the new pokemon look horrible, I was 12 when I played with Gyrados, now i'm like 24.

The series demises is likely to happen when BOTH South Park & The Simpsons piss off from our screens. Meaning, not for a long time yet, i'm guessing.

It's exactly similar to what Dave said during his Power Rangers LP, if the show is still selling crappy merchandise then it has no reason to go anywhere.

The Pokemon infection isn't as bad nowadays as it was during it's popular years (1995-2002) but the show still has some steam left in it's engine for a few, more shitty seasons. The Miltank hasn't been harvested enough, apparently.

Some fads never say die. Like The Goonies! 25th year anniversary people, woot.

You know, I am fine with new games and what not.  The Mechanics change little, but they add new pokemon and stuff, but I can't stand how they keep the show going!!!

The show is probably just an advertising campaign for the games.  But they need to work on the voice acting, significantly.

I agree with you here.  There really is no reason to stop the games because they are pretty fun.  Also, I can't justify why Pokemon should stop when Mario and Zelda keep on going.  As much as I love those series, do they need to make twenty million games?  No, but I hope they do, and I can't wish ill upon the game series that I know a lot of people love. 

The show, however, really needs to stop.  It's on before I go to work, so I've caught a few episodes recently, and it's just become horrible.  The show needs more plot than the games do, but it seems like the writers absolutely cannot come up with anything good, so they end up writing garbage and putting it on tv.  I swear, one episode I saw had a Pokemon talent show or something.  They only showed off moves, they didn't even battle.  It pissed me off for some reason.

Anyway, game can stay, but the show should go.

As long as people can come up with names and people can draw furry animal type things, Pokemans will continue to live.

I think they can't come up with good names anymore.  Now it's just what type of animal it looks like and something related to it's type, like Monferno, the fire monkey.  I think they've been doing this since the beginning, but it seems so much more obvious now.

maybe you getting all old isn't helping
i think they are also taking less drugs witch doesn't make sense as they are making a lot of money.....
....maybe they are taking too much and are getting lazy

TV show = stop, now, it's over...
Movies = meh, they're alright, they showcase the pokemon/character interactions and whatnot
Video Games = Keep them coming... if you think they're fun, awesome/if you think they aren't fun, why do you care?

I think they should chill with the main series handhelds for a bit and make another colosseum/gale of darkness game... I thought those were really fun

Oh and yeah they names and what they look like are getting pretty lazy... but I mean you figure after a while they'd start running out of ideas...
I mean these are just weird: http://serebii.net/blackwhite/pokemon.shtml (http://serebii.net/blackwhite/pokemon.shtml)
But on the other hand, they keep improving the mechanics and graphics so why not? http://serebii.net/blackwhite/battle.shtml (http://serebii.net/blackwhite/battle.shtml)

Edit: I forgot, but the last ranger game was fun as well... why should the games end if they're fun or at least a lot of people think they're fun?

I stopped watching it when they ruined the original trio (Ash, Brock and Misty) and starting substituting them for random tag-alongs like Sketch and that lil' dorky kid.

Okay, I guess I didn't mind them changing their clothes especially as this signified them getting older so new appearance, but after that I feel it went...unfamiliar and therefore no longer interesting.

Pokemon is probably not going to end for a while.  We can only hope that they run out of ideas soon, although I think that won't stop them because it seems like they've run out of good ideas for new Pokemon already.  The reason it'll keep going on is because people still play the games.  There were tons of people at my school (I'm in college) who were completely ecstatic when the new Gold and Silver games came out.  Seriously, if 19-year-olds are still playing this shit, I can only imagine how the younger children feel about new Pokemon games.

Maybe when Ash wakes up from his coma, it'll end.  After thinking about it, that sounds like a better plot than the actual plot.

never seen the series, but i thought the first and second generation games for the game boy were pretty good, and i thought third was ok, but they are going to far with these knew ones. i think they should have stopped at third.


Title: Re: when will pokemon end?

As far as I'm concerned the show ended with the second movie and the games ended with Crystal

The third movie wasn't horrible, but that was probably stretching the limit with Pokemon.  And I agree, the games, at least the good ones, did end with Crystal.

Title: Re: when will pokemon end?
Post by: Stark on January 08, 2011, 05:32:18 PM
I stopped watching Pokemon years ago, just like the games the series came from, the story line is extremely repetitive. 10 year old (Or in the anime's case who KNOWS how old...) ventures out into the world to catch a bajillion creatures with little balls. Said kid travels to eight major cities without adult supervision to compete in gyms to win badges. After winning the aforementioned badges, he then heads off to the respective region's Pokemon League to, in the case of the games, defeat the Elite Four and the Champion or in the case of the anime, lose in the final or semi final round. Seriously, has Ash ever even WON a Pokemon League Tournament aside from the Orange League? Semi rant aside, yeah this series needed to end years ago.

Johto was good.  I stopped watching it a while ago also.  I look back sometimes at an episode that is playing to see how low the series has gone and remember how great it used to be.

I did know that Pokemon means pocket monter.  The very first pack of Pokemon cards I ever owned was in Japanese, and it said pocket monsters on the back.

They should have stopped after Johto, or at the very least, they should have stopped creating new Pokemon after Johto. Now there are just way too many of them.

Funny you mentioned both the long name "pocket monsters" and the playing cards. Reminded me of back in primary school when every kid had a pack and the headteacher eventually ragequitted, threatened to burn every single one if she saw them in school again...and thought they were called "poker man" :-*


Title: Re: when will pokemon end?
Post by: Zillas on January 14, 2011, 06:39:51 PM
There are currently 649 pokemon. I predict at least another 5seasons, if not more so   (you need to realize, the Japanese are crazy fuggers they have manga over 700chapters long and still ongoing, the same shit can happen to anime)   pray some cataclysmic event happens on 2012!  :P  and if not then, hows about that huge meteorite supposedly going to hit earth in 2182?  (sure we'll all be dead by then, but at least pokemon will be gone to xD)

Sadly...even that meteor only has a 1-1000chance.


Title: Re: when will pokemon end?
Post by: Stark on January 14, 2011, 07:08:23 PM
649 Pokemon now?!? Holy Jumped up Balls Batman that's a lot... I had long lost interest when Ruby and Sapphire were the big items game wise and with like 200 more added to the over all roster, I don't think I'd have the patience to catch that many.

Post by: FSLAR on January 19, 2011, 09:20:18 PM
and did you guys know that pokemon means poket monster LMAO  ;D
Yeah. Old news dude.
The new series, Best Wishes, may have potential due to Giovanni but it looks pretty bad since Ash is still a goddamn retard as always. I really just hate how the series made everyone think Red = Ash when there is no official proof, or even remotely decent proof. It was good at one point but then it just went in bad directions. And no more Brock is just saddening, because he was actually still decent and was my only excuse to watch the anime. I still don't get why Ash's companions aren't any of the in-game protagonists...honestly, why didn't they base the anime off the manga Pokeon Adventures? It's a decent manga and so much better than the anime.
I also agree with Stark.

649 is a heck of a lot of Pokemon. You think they'd stop after creating 4 god-like pokemon.


Title: Re: when will pokemon end?
Post by: Stark on January 20, 2011, 05:24:20 PM
Yeah you would think that but nope, and watch, in another two or three years, there's going to be a sixth generation of the games and even MORE Pokemon which would bring the total to something like 758 or 759 or something like that. Pokemon is clearly Nintendo's big money maker, even though the games might not enjoy the popularity they did say ten years ago when Gold and Silver came out or the original Red and Blue.

Maybe not the same character, but they can introduce a new character to take over and have the main characters now become older members of the Pokemon world and...become gym leaders I guess.  If people watch consistently, it'll keep going, just look at Power Rangers and all their ridiculous branching.

I must say, Pokemon is quite fun to watch at 5 am when you're still half asleep.  The entire time I'm just thinking, "god, these people are f*cking stupid."  Part of me hopes that even if the show ends, they still show reruns at 5 am.
