As you guys may have noticed im going back and rewatching a lot of the Pokemon movies, and now I think im gonna make a F&F on several of them.
This is one of the most disputed ones due to the strength/effectiveness of articuno, zapdos, and moltres.
To start off with the 3 legendary birds, we'll start with speed. For the pokemon anime, their speed was better than others, but not ridiculously good. Zapdos use lightning attacks, some were dodged, some weren't. Keep in mind, the actual weather was effected by the birds, so real lighting, rain, blizzards, and all that good stuff was actually in the movie. In terms of power, a Moltres can one shot a device that took all of ash's pokemon a bunch of effort to destroy. That includes Orange Island saga charizard, who is pretty beastly himself. Now lets get to the good stuff. Due to the imbalance and fighting between the birds, the weather of the orange islands, kanto, and apparently the whole world, was being effected. It went from storm, to blizzard, to sunny, across countries worth of land and across seas. While I don't think they were doing this intentionally, I still consider it a feat, but a joint one, since there's no way, despite articuno being powerul, that it, or any of it's other siblings, creating such a massive storm by themselves. It's mostly due to the imbalance of nature.
LUGIA (gonna call it a him, since the voice was male) Alright, here's the star of the show. Lugia went in, and 1v3'd the 3 birds without trying to harm them (lugia only attacked/used hyperbeam when the human villain attacked him). It was fast enough to overwhelm all 3 of the birds with it's might, and had force fields that tanked the attacks of all 3 birds at the same time.
The most impressive thing Lugia did was hydro kinesis. He lifted what had to be millions of tons of water. The amount of water dwarfed even lugia in size, and spanned from off screen to the left, to so far in the distance, and above the clouds, that you couldn't even see it. He can also use this water to protect himself, and attack. Keep in mind Lugia lives under water to protect others from it's massive power.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.

Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.

Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
