I've been rereading the pokemon adventures manga and I have to say it's currently my favorite manga of all time. So I've been comparing it to the anime and, WOW the anime fails in comparison. The main reason I think the anime isn't as good is because the characters in adventures actually grow and develop over time as opposed to Ash who after ten years of adventuring is STILL 10 years old. Another thing I like about adventures is how when the main villains of each arc show up and send the legendaries of the arc on a rampage it actually effects the entire region and the Gym leaders actually get involved. Also the battles in adventures are more brutal and fun to watch, whereas the fights in the anime while fun are kind of underwhelming. While the anime isn't bad I definitely prefer Pokemon adventures for it's interesting and well characters, fun and exciting battles, and it's epic finales to each of their arcs. If you disagree with what I said then tell me why you disagree, just do me a small favor and keep the debate civil and respectful.
