>Leak period for Gen 7 has started
>Still remember the glory years of Gens 1, 2 and 3 like they were yesterday.
>Fucking Gen 4 was 10 fucking years ago
>Misty (one of the three prominent human characters in Pokemon) hasn't actually been in the anime for 13 years.
>The anime has generally rid itself of any risqué jokes/content.
