My god, they look EXACTLY THE SAME. You wouldn’t know the difference if they were naked. “Red doesn’t talk” oh pshaw, neither does Link, but you don’t see anyone complaining that the OoT manga Link is different from the OoT game Link. It’s about what technology is up to, chill out!
I still think they’re totally the same thing, and AT MOST, based off one another. The anime for Pokemon was made specifically to go with the game! Come on, guys. Yes, I’ve been shown images and arguments on how they’re different, and to me, it’s all a load of bull from people who want to look smart about a fandom.
Just tired of people being anal over this. It’s just silly.
