And then suddenly... METABEE!!
omg my childhood! this show! Aaaaah!
(I need to rewatch ALL OF IT)
When I was a kid Pokemon came on our local TV station and of course, we ALL watched it. However, when the first season drew to a close and Ash and his team moved on to the orange Isles.. ....I realised that the show wasn't going anywhere. I'd been anxious to find out certain loose ends regarding Giovanni, Ash's dad, Getting the last badge etc etc.... ....and it led to NOTHING. And I realised it never WOULD lead to anything. I stopped watching about 2 episodes into the Orange Isle season.
And then MEDABOTS hit our screen! And omg you guys... I have NEVER bothered to watch Pokemon ever again! Medabots is just SUCH a better show! Ikki is a medabot owner who actually KNOWS what he's doing in battles and is very smart. He knows all about the different medabots, what their strengths and weaknesses are and his drawbacks are not from how big an idiot he is, but rather being underpowered against and opponent, being overconfident or, sometimes, Metabee just not listening to him.
Metabee also actually has a personality beyond being a blobby cute yellow thing that makes noises. He's loud, obnoxious and extremely stubborn but he's also brave, loyal and sticks up for people (or medabots) weaker than him.
Also, there's a REASON the kids fight their medabots beyond you know... animal abuse. In the show, Medabots are TOYS. Sure they have personalities and the kids bond with them, but even with AIs they're still toys and not WILD ANIMALS.
And there's a REASON Metabee is different from other medabots and why he doesn't like Ikki at first and refuses to take orders! And there's an entire STORY ARC in the first two seasons that actually LEADS to something and has a CLIMAX. And we actually LEARN the answers behind some of the mysteries set up in the show.
GAH! This show was so cool ;____; So much more interesting than the Pokemon cartoon! I WISH it got as much recognition and love!
Also... cute yellow 3' tall robots who love watermelon and click when they're angry.
Pokemon is cool and all.... but compared to the show... yeah I like my ancient civilization apocalyptic ghost in the shell sci fi robot cartoon.
......the third season of Medabots sucked ass though.
