    600 episodes, you say.

    It's too bad there isn't a fansub group that's currently doing it... I can't find the ones by #PocketMonsters, DATS don't have any subs of the older ones (if we ever started or are still even doing it), and I don't really want to watch the dub simply because it was made by 4Kids and I hear that they did a bad job of it.

    I bet a lot of groups stopped doing it (or never started) because it was licensed. Either that, or there are official subs available for most of the episodes anyway. I don't know which.

    We're not still doing it, last I checked?

    And 4Kids's dub was GOOD (sorry, I love the dub). It's the current PUSA one that fails.

    Um, more like Pokemon is too popular for its own good. There are no official subs released last I checked. It's just it's too popular that doing it is quite a dangerous thing. :/ And it's been licensed for FOREVER. So nobody would "stop" doing it halfway because of licensing issues.

    Actually, the Pokemon Company took over for 4Kids and didn't even keep the VAs.

    And, knowing 4Kids and now PUSA, there won't be official subs ever. =/

    I actually grew up with the dub, and as a result when I tried to watch a sub I had to turn it off. It was just too different. Imo the anime really went downhill after the first season regardless, I still watch alot of the current show (and probably always will because of my weak persona) and the formula for each episode is always the same.

    I still love the games though, they are still fun to play and will always have me in their iron grip of death. Gonna get heart gold when it comes out <3

    Lol I realise I just posted that in the japanese version anime thread but I wanted to share my thoughts on pokemon :p

    Heck, there's no evidence that we ever started doing it. (Besides the presence of this forum, and even then it might have been a passing interest that developed over time.) At least because I never actually check the DATS release page.

    *edit* Screw that, I take this back. The part about starting, I mean.

    Okay, it must be exclusively a thing about Sonic X, then.

    So because it's too popular for its own good, everybody's too afraid to sub it because they're afraid of being lambasted for trying to take advantage of such a good series? Or they're afraid of being sued because PUSA is paranoid about copyright?

    At least that's the message I'm getting from what you're saying.

    That would explain the absence of subbers doing it in the first place. Most of the still-active ones are in languages like Portuguese and French.

    IIRC, it's Nintendo's fault we won't get any. =[

    EDIT:
    Really? I'm looking at a heckload of torrents right now..

    *sigh* It quickly went from the Japanese version discussion thread to the general Pokemon thread thanks to that other guy. *points*

    Sorry, I wanted to discuss the Japanese anime and how there aren't any fansubs out there, but I guess it was supposed to be a discussion about the episodes themselves. *sigh*

    It's not your fault, really. Like I said, someone before you started.

    ...none of which have been active for quite a while. At least due to my poor searching skills. What Google terms did you use?

    Zodiac, we can't directly give links to roms, emulators, and other places' torrents.

    It's digital pirating. =/

    Edit: I would think that includes things to help find them.

    Google isn't the best for searching for torrents. Try some torrent search engines. :p There are many out there.

    So, now, ENOUGH. This topic relates to what happens IN the Japanese anime, not WHERE to get it.

    So... Anybody wanna respond to my post above?

    So, I have something to contribute...

    Show Spoiler
    Can't see how not. There's more factors pointing towards it than not. (The explosion, water pressure, etc.)

    Whoops.

    Then again, not all torrents are pirates. For example, one group pointing to another group's subs isn't actually piracy, it's just bad manners.

    As well, I did find the torrents, but I was looking for more of the older ones. It's kind of hard to jump right into the middle of a series because you don't know what's going on.

    Anyway, I concur with megumi, enough with the sidetracks. I'll leave this thread until I have something significant to contribute.

    Pokemon. Who hates it? The one anime that everyone knows about. The JPN version is better, because of Rika Matsumoto. But some of the ENG openings are better. I have two questions: when is it going to end? How OLD is Ash really supposed to be? :confused:

    Yep. I just killed everything. -3-

    megumi SPAM BOT Staff Member WARNING WARNING

    Meh.

    It's never going to end.

    And... >_> He's ten when he started out. And there has been no note of how old he is from then on.

    He should be older than me by now...

    I seriously only watch the movies anyways. I curious. Does anyone know what the next season is gonna be? (Name, etc.) Because the Arceus one was the last one for DP, right? So what are they gonna do?

    Correction: He shouldn't be older than you by now, he should be older than you always...

    loveanimeeverywhere 最後の約束

    :D True. Very much. But why am I catching up to his age? Right now, he's 15 or 16, right? I'm almost 15....:confused: But in Pokemon (or any other anime), time barely passes.
