If Super wanted to be "canon," then it should have been good.

You guys realize that most of the time when DBS changes "ranking" it is really that Doraemon or Crayonshin chan weren't on that week, right? It has nothing to do with the relative popularity or quality of DBS?

The only "meaningful" change in rating you usually see if if Detective Conan is doing well or poorly. Detective Conan has been doing very well of late. So Super is lower. It is not a direct reflection on Super. When DC had a terrible lead in, Super occasionally beat it if it had a good week.

The only "real" exception to this was the one or two weeks where Super has tied/beat One piece.

Other than that, any "change" in Super's rankings are just due to what is on this week. Super has been about as popular (or unpopular) as it has ever been, with a few weeks that were outliers.

Pokemon has defeated DBS, I guess people changed the channel when the U2 Trio got that power of love boost or didnt care for Gohan/Piccolo vs Namekians..

Pokémon beat us, huh?

I dropped Sun and Moon months ago, but I did read they finally brought in Lusamine. Was last week a big plot episode?

Nebby evolved into Solgaleo and they went into Ultra Space. Next week is the battle with Lusamine absorbed by the Nihilego.

Makes sense they'd beat us then. That stuff's near the end of the game's plot.

I'm curious about Time Bokan's sudden spike. The last episode was like 3.3.

That could something to look into later.

That's cool. I liked the Super episode but I feel happy that Pokemon outdid it this week. I love Sun and Moon so no anger here.

Yeah, I'm assuming they're gonna go into the Ultra Sun/Moon stuff with Necrozma soon. Which is weird cause this series went from 0-100 quick. It was all slice of life with no real progression and then all this Nebby stuff happened within 8 or so episodes.

Wow, never thought I'd see Super so low.

And yeah, Pokemon did better than usual because they're covering the climax of the game storyline right now. It'll probably decrease again when they go back to fillers next year.

The lack of progression was actually why I dropped it. Surreal to hear they suddenly picked up the pace.

I might peek in on it, but I can't afford to keep up regularly.
I'm not strongly nostalgic enough for it.

Pokemon is not really something to watch week after week unless you're a hardcore fan, it's mostly made to binge watch or to skip around some of the filler.

Yeah that's what I'm gathering. I'm just not into the franchise enough to watch week to week. Last bit of Sun and Moon I watched was the Misty and Brock special guest episodes.

The only two reasons I even started Sun and Moon were "A supplement to the then live TFS Pokémon Moon Nuzlocke." and "The Gokû Black arc is over, but James of Team Rocket is voiced by the same guy who voiced Zamasu you say?" Neither of which is a long term reason to watch a long show.

I did however immediately dig into the archives to see what gyaru!Zamasu sounded like (from the aboard the St. Anne episodes). Didn't disappoint.

Pokemon as a series is a mixture of battles and slice of life stuff but this season has been leaning way too much on the SOL aspect of the show,to the point there are barely any battles nowdays.
Adding that the quest changed from 8 gym badges to 4 islands trials,Ash is stuck in the island for the most part so he won't progress too quickly.
So yeah if you are not too much of a fun of the SOL aspect of the show then this season is definitely not for you,granted i am not much of a fun either,i prefer much more the action oriented seasons the show had.

Does Japanese TV have Sweeps periods (February, May, July and November) the same way America does?

Yes!!! Sun and Moon beat DBS. Good. It is the best series in the franchise to date as far as I'm concerned.

Guys, I need some help understanding something. I just looked at the first page with the list of all the ratings and just noticed the DVR ratings for the first 40 or so episodes. Aren't those numbers actually really great! While not everyone might feel the need to get up early Sunday morning to watch DBS, they still record it to watch it later.

Not really, I think it's below Diamond & Pearl in terms of quality.

This is getting off-topic, but the Sun/Moon anime is so fundamentally different than all past Pokemon sagas there's no point to compare it. It's literally the first saga that broke the formula of Ash doing 8 Gyms and having regular travel companions.
