In this new series, Satoshi, Pikachu and friends start a new journey towards the "White Ruins." There, they meet the young "N", who can hear the voices from Pokémon's hearts... The door of truth leading to an Utopia for Pokémon and humans now lies open!
It's Pokemon! Yeah the previous seasons were.. meh but this set Pokemon on the right path, the episodes all have a decent plot and Ash actually shows he has some experience under his belt for the first time in awhile. And Pikachu is still pretty good for a pokemon that jumps from level 5 to 80 then back to 5 at the start of every season. This re-kindled my love for Pokemon :3 Very nice watch!
In this pokemon season the story focuses on N and the legendary pokemon of Unova. Well if you followed the game Black And White after that Black 2 White 2 you will see well from my point of view the anime didnt live upto the game or the game sequals. I wont say the main game character [Black/White or Black 2/White2] was absent and thats why the anime didnt turn out to be a better season but still it felt like they tried to rush in and missed N's true ambition and other stuff that we seen in the Black and White game. Also they
tried to focus what we seen in the game black 2 white 2 like Ghetis's plan after 2 years and the outfits of the team plasma. Also Including the scientist all of a sudden. The anime should have atleast follow the time line from the pokemon game and try to make it that way but sadly they tried to keep balance between and black white and black 2 white 2. Also Cheren's appearance was questionable too. But still it was enjoyable by seeing same old Ash pikachiu and their ideals.
In the end i should say rather than rushing to the scenarios of black 2 white 2 they should follow the scenarios of Black And White it would be "More Enjoyable".
Of all the seasons to only have 14 episodes... Episode N was interesting. N himself was... interesting. Maybe a little too talented and special, on the heels of Meloetta it would seem, but dark enough to still pull me in. N's purpose was almost to break the fourth wall. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised. I never expected Pokémon to address this aspect of their lore. It's been kind of a long-running gag among the fanbase now... you know, the morality of capturing and training Pokémon and then sending them into battle for our amusement. (And questionable reward.)
So as far as that goes, the story
for Episode N was really interesting. Maybe the whole ability to hear a Pokémon's "inner voice" thing felt a little... I don't even know the word for it. Cliché? Whatever it was, that was the one part that was a little off-putting for me. But N's distaste for humans, as a part of his beliefs that all Pokémon should be free, was fascinating. A little misplaced maybe, as he says himself he'd never experienced the outside world, so the only relationship he'd ever witnessed between humans and Pokémon was that of the way Team Plasma treated Pokémon, but as this whole season was basically dedicated to N learning about that bigger world and how Pokémon and humans CAN live in peace... I guess that can be forgiven. (Actually, for a while there, I was actually expecting N to end up being the Plasma leader's son... But maybe I was mixing his lore up with... Silver? I think it was Silver. I don't know; I never played that game. Anyway...)
And speaking of Team Plasma... I'm not sure how I feel about their little arc. It's odd, to me, for the big bad specific to this region to only exist for 14 episodes. Unfortunately, Team Rocket does go back to their previous antics, acting as if their last arc didn't happen, as I'd feared it might. Maybe that's why Plasma felt a little disappointing to me. Their goals just felt like a reiteration of Giovanni's in the last season, and not done nearly as well. That and their villain outfits made them impossible to take seriously...
Honestly, I wouldn't have been disappointed for this season to be the end. But *deep breath* there's just one more season before I'm finally out of Unova... I can't imagine what the storyline is going to be for the next 20 episodes, but I can't imagine it will top this. I guess that just leaves me hoping the next 20 episodes won't leave me feeling like they were a big waste of time. Let's do this.
Over the years, Ash Ketchum (Satoshi) has traveled to many different regions in the Pokemon world. Each new region brings a new generation of Pokemon with it and the anime features Ash and his pal Pikachu catching a new team of Pokemon with each new adventure.
