View Full Version : Why doesn't Ash's family/friends come to watch Ash's important matches anymore?

I remember before the Hoenn league aired people speculated that Oak, Delia and Misty would all come to Hoenn in person and watch Ash's league match. People expected them to show up, but instead they all stayed home and just watched from their TV screens.

Then, when Ash faced Brandon for the final time, we finally had Oak show up, but again, Delia/Misty were no-shows. It would have made a bit more sense for them to show up because they were in Kanto and it probably wouldn't have been a long trip from where they live.

Why do you think the writers have ignored them come league/important match time? And do you think we'll see any of them show up in the Sinnoh league, or watch from home again?

Houen is across the sea, so it's no wonder they didn't show. As for the Battle Frontier, it's likely that they had other things to do. Can't expect them to show up all the time.

it would be a lot more sensible if they did watch though.

Well, Misty is a gym leader so I guess that the work in the gym keeps her busy. I understand Delia not being with Ash in Hoenn since it's far but I don't get why she wasn't in the battle against Brandon since it's the same region.

My theory is that in Battle with Brandon it being a frontier gym Ash is at some level required to separate from his Mom and when this relying on his friends. Like what happened with Dawn and her Mom when she lost her first contest and her Mom told her not to call her every time she wins/loses. Ash was just more mature and didn't need air time for that to be illustrated. Imagine A Frontier Brain calling his Mom every-time there was a match. As for Hoen, the excuse of travel and refrain from of them showing up to much makes sense to me. ;025;

Maybe Delia was busy or something? That and the Pyramid was pretty far off from Pallet, and the only time we've seen her in a plane was in Movie 2.

You're all overlooking the fact that the writers took Misty to the Dune Sea and cast her into the Pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all powerful Sarlacc. In his belly she is finding a new definition of pain and suffering as she is slowly digested over a thousand years.

Ash's mom probably had some stupid chores to do at home, or maybe she didn't want to walk all the way to the Battle Pyramid just to see yet another Pokemon battle which Ash could've potentially lost.

Yay! Misty got what was coming to her!

Seriously though, they just didn't show them for some reason. I dunno why. Because.

In Pokemon: Misty works as gym leader. Deila has to work at home and might be able to see schedule matches in some league (but not BF which was at random dates). Oak is pretty busy with work and Tracy helps him out when he actually goes away (as seen and heard in BF).

In terms of the creation of the series: They [the characters]don’t have anything to do really. Deila for example, she could say like a few sentences but otherwise have nothing to do. The same goes for almost all characters (Oak and Misty excluded). Better then to dont have them in at all.

Remember that they all send gifts to Ash at the end of BF! None of them are forgotten!
