We get it people, you hate everything after the first 150 and all the episodes after the show left UPN to go to WB. However, the movies always have great animation and pretty high production values for movies based on a series. Plus, watching the dubbed versions is great because then you get to makes in jokes with your friends (like Obvious Brock from the Shaymin movie).

The anime has grown a bit stale, even if you're watching it in Japanese as I've done with DP and tried with BW, but if you don't want to watch it- don't. You're, "Omg ur so stupid, 150 4 lyfe" and, "Nothing is good past the first one" stuff got old when DP came out. I'm not even saying that as a "fanboy", but as someone who is tired of seeing that stuff every... single... time... something is mentioned.
