You know the old saying goes "If it isn't broke, don't fix it." Somebody needs to remind the people who draw the characters for Poke'mon the animation, because let's face it folks, some of us grew up with Poke'mon and are familiar with the faces behind the characters. Turns out Jenny and Nurse Joy are getting a complete makeover, and it's NOT for the better... Story here.

More like Officer Johnny, the descendant of Eric the Red. Dunno why but when I look at that face I can just imagine HIM swinging a battle-ax and setting fire to random villages all the while bellowing like a norse god on a rampage.

Is officer Jenny a lesbian now? I'm diggin' the lesbo hairdo.

Ash is looking a little different too
Why can't they just change out the main character. They always do it with the female lead.
He's gotta be pushing 30 now.

joy looks fine.
jenny is now a lesbian. pretty progressive thinking, i'd say.

stop resisting change people. if you 'grew up' watching pokemon and you're still watching it..i'd say you have much larger problems than updated character designs on a childrens' japanese cartoon show.

Oh, I don't know...I still watch Roadrunner cartoons, because watching the Coyote get thrown off a cliff or blown up never gets old. (And they call our generation violent.)

As far as the character designs...come on. It makes perfect sense. Jenny got her hair cut because long hair interferes with her job; it could get caught on drawing a pistol when she has to gun down a drunken Pokemon. Joy's eyes help the patient take their mind off their pain by seeing something far more frightening.

Im gonna move this to the anime thread. Maybe officer Jenny and Joy look different because they are distant relatives? I know they mention they have relatives that look like them in different cities, so maybe this is the case here.

They're all clones. It's a Team Rocket plot, more likely than not.

Don't you know? Women cops are always stereotypically lesbians. It's a fact. So of course Jenny would have a butch haircut now. :|b

I kind of like Nurse Joy's new look... haha... >>;; and as for Ash, his eyes make him look like he is on drugs, imo.


But yeah, it's neat to see new designs. I am psyched for the new games personally. I loooove the girl design. It's like the 80s are back with her fluffy hair.

I wonder how Brock will react to the new Jenny's and Joy's... I personally like the new Joy look, I think Pokemon has been in need of an overhaul for quite a while. They need to make Ash grow up, or is he going to be eternally 10 years old?

Isn't that kind of like something not to say at an anime forum? I mean, we all watch cartoons anyway...no need to make us feel worse...


Also, give Jenny some glasses and she looks kinda like Maggey Byrd from Phoenix Wright.

yeah, i felt as if i should've edited it a bit, but then i realized it was a joke in the first place and if you spend a considerable amount of time, effort, and money watching japanese cartoons shows - especially the ones aimed at a very young audience - you should at least try and have a sense of humor about yourself.

don't feel bad. if you watch it religiously or something, just own it and ignore what anyone else says about it. i was just making a joke, dude.

Meh, I think the new designs aren't that bad. It could always be worse. We could have a giant breasted Nurse Joy, Thank god it's for kids.
I think the look needed a bit of a change. Not as drastic, but something different. At least, I think so. For all those people who are like, "OMGGGGGGGGG" I say this, IT COULD ALWAYS BE WORSE.

I don't like either of them, but I guess I don't care that much because I stopped watching the cartoon years ago and have the first few seasons on dvd. That's all I want to remember! :P

*Edit* I re-read it and didn't know that this is what BW is being based off of. *cries* I want to play the new game but...now I don't know. A few of the new pokemon look pretty cool, but the others just look stupid...especially the starters. ;__; I wonder what the professors look like...

I feel bad for the new generation of new Poke'mon watchers that have to deal with "scraping the bottom of the barrel" storylines, Poke'mon that look like they've run out of ideas, and Officer Jenny that looks like a man, that could maybe turn in to a man, haha.

The article doesn't say they are the new Joy and Jenny, It could be a different nurse and officer all together.

I wouldn't think so because The Nurse Joy here and the original Nurse Joy look extremely similar. Besides, why would they change them now after they have been Joy and Jenny for 13 years? But who knows. They could be just labeled as Nurse and Officer and don't have names? Also, the Isshu Saga starts on the 23rd in Japan. Maybe then we will see who they truly are. I'll be keeping an eye on serebii.net.
