Pokemon XY: Anime Retrospective

Well, if you’ve been watching the Pokemon XY anime series then you’re well aware that it has, sadly, come to an end (pending some final special episodes). The XY series premiered on October 17, 2013 and ran strong for just a hair over three years, wrapping up on October 27, 2016. The sixth generation of the Pokemon anime not only redeemed itself after the disgrace that was Black & White, but it ranks up there as one of the best in the 20 year long series. So let’s take a trip down memory lane here and look back at what was, in my opinion, the best the Pokemon anime has offered since the Battle Frontier series.

Obviously, this left many different plot lines open and arguably the biggest one was that the series never got the conclusion it deserved.

The rather anticipated novel, Star Wars: Ahsoka, written by E. K. Johnston released on October 11th and it definitely delivered on what many fans of Ahsoka and Star Wars wanted. The premature cancellation of Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, as a result of the purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney, left many mysteries and unfinished storylines behind. One of those storylines, obviously, was what happened to Ahsoka Tano after she left the Jedi Order. Star Wars Rebels has begun to close some of the loops left open from The Clone Wars and we learned that Ahsoka joined up with the Rebellion at some point after Order 66 came down. Johnston’s novel fills in these gaps as well as answers some other questions.
