I just don't understand why they still show pokemon instead of naruto?
Do anybody know this answer?

That is actually a good question, it is probably because younger kids watch Pokemon and don't know it comes out in Japan so they just watch it on TV. Teens and adults that watch Naruto usually know that it comes out in Japan before the US, some people prefer the english sub over the english dub so they just watch the subbed episodes online. That probably lost a lot of viewers towards the showings of english dub on tv, and most young children barely use the computer so they probably don't know that it came out in japan beforehand. The US dub was in the 90 episode fillers which also lost a lot of people.

True, true. but you know that most subs may or may not be the real thing they're saying.
now, Cartoon network must think Naruto-kun on their programming is a waste of time looking at viewers going away, so they maybe took it off, until they want to put it back again.
Pokemon still attracts the *mostly* same number of viewers, so they keep it on.


i actually enjoy it

which part? The "anime"? (*sigh* me and some other people somewhere else were debating over if pokemon was an anime, I think it's a cartoon, looking at origins.)
Or the games? The games are ok.....

it might be canceled soon because it got a bad time slot .

Think about the age range it's geared to. Little kids get up early to watch cartoons, Pokémon comes on, and soon they're all over it going like (?_?) watching it all day.
If Pokémon were geared to a older age, it would be too early. By what criterion (spelling?) is it in a bad time slot?

It was replaced by 6teen so maybe 6teen is getting getting to be one of the more popular shows, so they needed more time for it?
But also, they deleted toonami jetstream and everything on it, including the website. What's that about?

I'd prefer to play the games than watch the cartoon any day. Then again, I did start out on the Pokemon games before I started watching the show. Originally, I thought the show would be following the game almost exactly, but it had so many fillers that I practically hated it.

It's been several years since I've played the Pokemon games. Of course, every time you flip through the channels in the afternoon, you're bound to find Pokemon showing so it hasn't been that long since I last saw it.

To be quite honest, I wish they would drop the show altogether. It was basically ruined as it started. I think the only episode that I could fully watch (besides the movies) was the first one where Ash befriended Pikachu. Ugh, other than that, I just didn't understand it since it was pretty poor from there. Quite honestly, I'd rather have Naruto than Pokemon on CN. I'd think more people would prefer it that way too since our generation is more into anime than old cartoons now. :???: :| :(

Pokemon was like the first anime i ever saw and recently i've been watching the old old episodes because of nostalgia. But when the voices changed after like season 8 or 9 i felt as though it should end because the voices changed. :cry:

dont people get tired of wathing pokemon because to me every season is like the last one only like a difrent version and diffrent characters and we all know what to expect at the end of the episode.

i bet because most of the people watching cartoon network are kids and a lot of those kids probably like to watch unrealistic animals fighting each other instead of watching people who some of them have demons sealed inside of them murdering and killing each other i can't believe it!

Theres no point to pokemon they just go to region after regoin after regioin and pretty much do the samething over again with new people and pokemon...

It will never end..

Its totally pointless to watch that show


Also CN is where little kids go to watch there shows

They dont show naruto there cause it isnt for little kids

the shows i hate most from CN are chowder and jhonny test

if they still have adult swim then why not AT LEAST put naruto on that but they should just put it on air in daytime

The real reasons are:
1)a lot of people watch it
2)CN make a lot of money off of it

No, I heard that the naruto series isn't going to be aired on tv anymore and that shippuden wouldn't be shown either. But I also heard that the dvds for naruto and naruto shippuden would still be sold. Oh and cartoonnetwork is still showing pokemon because they're trying to appeal to little kids.

There are more kids watching pokemon then there are teens and adults watching other anime like Naruto. The fact is that most kids never even heard of shows like Bleach or Naruto. Pokemon is more of a kid friendly show were shows like Bleach and Naruto have blood shown, alcohol use, tobbaco use, parcial nudity, and language in it. CN doesn't want their asses sued for showing inappropiate content to young viewers.

That's probably it. They could just show naruto and bleach later at night to avoid that though. I wish CN would put more anime back on. Like naruto.

Naruto is WAY better than Pokemon. Its also a lot more popular. They lost a whole bunch of viewers when they stopped playing it.

they show pokemon cuz they had new series sent in and the reason y they dont show naruto cuz they think its too violent i say not enough violence

Pokemon still comes on because it appeals to little kids. Naruto on the other hand has way more violence and blood, which appeals to us Naruto fans. Personally, pokemon has gone downhill from after the Kanto and maybe Johto regions.

Yeah they probably did lose a lot viewers. I know they lost me at least. I won't watch CN for pokemon or any of the other shows they got. They made a big mistake stopping naruto.

Can't beleive you all don't like Pokemon. I mean,its not te best show and I think it took a hit after te second generation. Naruto got took off for its own reason and Pokemon is,like stated before,geared to kids like it always has been, Just look at the banned episode list.

They show Pokemon to attract kids into viewing their channel. -_- More moolah for them.
