On sites I go to that discuss the Pokemon anime, I always see at minimun four different threads hating on Ash and demanding that he get replaced with May/game/manga characters.

I gotta know, why do people hate the guy the anime was always meant to revolve around so much?

The thing that bothers me is they want him to get replaced with Brendan , who had 10 seconds of screen time, or Jimmy, who got one special and was pretty simmilar to Ash already.

Isn't that suppose to be a GOOD thing? I personally wanted Brendan more in the anime. Not just a throwaway character that got 10 seconds in a movie.

Will Lucas appear in the anime? PLACE YOUR BETS NOW.

Oh please, Ash doesn't get any more hate than the other characters.

And besides, most complaing about Ash ended when AG began when he started actually having a powerful team unlike the unevolved stuff he had in Johto.

His team isn´t the problem. It´s just..well Satoshi.

He lost his spunk after Kanto ended I think. Well, maybe in the OI-saga..but after that he became kinda stale. I miss his cocky attitude from early on. They never do anythink interesting with him anymore outside of most gym battle episode. The "Musashi uses Aipom"-episode is a nice example of a more interesting satoshi to me, but really..how ofter does this happen?

But the same thing would happen with ever other male-maincharacter. As Kojiro said, Kenta wasn´t THAT different from Satoshi.

Or Lucas? He's the DP male, but besides that you can't say how good a character he'd be till you saw him in the Anime.

...Not that Ash's new "I hear ya" is any better...

Ever since Johto, I've wanted them to replace Ash's travelling group with both of the playable characters from that region, not just the girl... Jimmy and Marina, May and Brendan, Lukas and Dawn...

Anyway, on the topic of Ash...I understand why alot of people hate him. Because he doesn't do what they want him to do. It's impossible to please the Pokemon fanbase.

I admit, I would've liked to see him be the main character in Jouto and see Satoshi as a secluded mountain hermit.

... But to see him be the main character now is the worst idea ever. I can understand Kouki, but Kenta?

The reason I brought this up is because it's difficult to have any discussion about him here or anywhere else without someone claiming he sucks because he doesn't follow all game rules, because he doesn't evolve all his pokemon, because he doesn't mindlessly catch everything he sees, because he doesn't catch Legendaries, because his Pikachu is Gamesharked, and (the favorite of Gamefaqs) because he's the "DEM Lord" due to not every battle going exactly as they would like (some wanting him to lose horribly and have him and his pokemon tortured and killed, I'm not making this up).

Then there are those so wrapped up in game rules that they see themselves as being so much better than all of the anime characters that the fact that they do things unlike the game says it must be "DEM" or "cheating". They then claim that they could beat everyone because they made their bits of game data beat other people's bits of data by making sure their numbers are better than anyone else's.

The reason why Ash is getting an amazing of hatred is because he acts like a rookie, yet he isn't rookie anymore. Plus, he never evolve his Pokemon that really need to evolve in order for him to defeat strong & skillful trainers like Shinji.

He makes mistakes fairly rarely now. People just love to harp on them when they do show up.

As for evolution, Ash cannot just make a pokemon evolve. It's not like he can make them battle until they rise to a high enough level like in the games. A trainer in the anime really has no say in when it happens.

Also the anime has been trying to hammer the point home that evolution isn't everything. When trained enough, an unevolved pokemon can be just as strong as an evolved one. The anime isn't just stats and levels like the games are.

^I know you like Dawn and all, but you really overestimate her.

She's not more skilled than Ash, she doesn't have better pokemon than him, and she isn't even in the running to become main character.

The whole show is about Ash's journey, despite recent focus on the new female group members. He won't get replaced until the anime ends or reboots with all new characters.

Ehm Otter, offtopic? ;)
I prefer Ash not evolving some Pokemon, I mean, how could Ash have a Pokemon with flowers at his neck (Meganium) or a Turtle with hills and trees on his back (Torterra). I really couldn't see that on him. The anime and the games are seperate things that don't follow the same rules. I mean, how would it be to have every so many battles a screen with +2 Speed pop up and Brock saying that Ash should give his Bayleaf more Special Attack EVs and he should train on Gastly's instead? If you don't like the show, don't watch it.

19th August 2007, 2:45 AM
I do agree that Ash gets way too much hatred. I think some people are just mad at him because he claims catching legendaries is wrong, meaning they did something wrong in catching the pokemon which they find essential to victory.

I also agree with those who say people complain too much because they don't understand that the anime has a different battle system from the games.

Though I must say, I did find it a bit unfair that Brendan got so little showing. What bugged me is that the female avatar got to be a main character twice in a row and the males got practically nothing. I know you'll all give the argument of pokemon needing a "feminine touch", but man, why not get a female Max or something?

Personally, the only thing that bugs me about Ash is his favouring pikachu. Though that, like many other things has changed. At least that's the situation in Hoenn/battle frontier. The other pokemon did get attention as well.

Abraace
19th August 2007, 4:08 PM
I dunno...I think Ash has been recieving less hatred since he's gone to Hoenn, seeing as how he doesn't destroy as many ground Pokemon with thundershock as he used to in the Kanto/Johto region.

Although, if they hate Ash for that reason, May deserves as much hatred for her Squirtle being able to counter Banette's Thunder with a bubble attack or managing to beat Brock's Marshtomp, an evolved pokemon who has travelled with him for longer than Eevee existed, had been in more battles and hit Eevee about...6 more times than Eevee managed to hit it, yet it still somehow won.

Dammit...this threads made me realise how much I hate May, not Ash.

That's what I've said. Ash gets blasted for everything he does while May's Contests were so full of complete BS that it was hard to see how anybody could think of them as official anything and she gets praise for them.

It's not that people hate Ash that gets me. It's the double standards that really floor me.

All the little kids wish that it were them in the show and not Ash so the show could become their own personal fanfiction (note: this is also the cause for most people's hatred of Misty/May/Dawn/what have you). When told how impossible that is, they take out their frustrations with fantasies about killing him off. That'd be most of it, I imagine.

pokekid1
19th August 2007, 11:09 PM
The only annoying thing with Ash is him giving out commands to other experience trainers like when Paul was fighting Roark. I like that Ash doesn't evolve his pokemon unless they want to and if they did then it would take away from actually caring about pokemon and just getting stronger pokemon. The anime was meant to be different than the pokemon games.

Lol like this? (http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=925601&topic=37533832)

Anyways, most Ash bashers are usually basing him off how he doesn't know everything about battling. I remember Franky's post on how the shonen protagonist is reflected on the viewers in that the viewers wouldn't know everything until revealed to them. The problem is, most of those that bash Ash (and the animé in general) tend to think about how the games are and how they could easily find out things through the Internet. (which hasn't been shown in the animé, bar the Shellos episode).

I don't get why some people want Lucas to come on the show with Ash still the main character (if he is still the main character). Ash, for the most part, is dressed just like him, so he is the Lucas character.

Well, that has nothing to do with experience, it has to do with who gets the most love from the writers, who is obviously May. The writers don't care for Brock at all. And they would rather cute lil' eevee get a win than a big goofy salamander (who is basically Brock in a pokemon form, from what I've seen at least).


That's what I've said. Ash gets blasted for everything he does while May's Contests were so full of complete BS that it was hard to see how anybody could think of them as official anything and she gets praise for them.

Yeah. Spontaneous Combusken? Since when does combusken have Flash Fire?

The reason May doesn't get as many hatred is because she can easily get anyone to like her with her fanservicey physique. That can easily turn any game following bashers into drooling slobs any day.

But since Ash is not particularly good looking, he can't smoke off the bashers with attraction. That and because girls aren't that easily dumbfounded by an attractive male.

I've met living proof of that on Gamefaqs. A certain super troll who calls himself Endgame appears to be on a mission to make the world despise all things from the Pokemon anime except for May with insane passion demanding agonizing deaths for all but his goddess.

He's actually professed true love for May and practically worships her and her Skitty (did I mention he's just as crazy about cats as he is May?).

What is Ash's new outfit based off of? The DP male character. Except for the hat. Interesting how they decided to do that this time around, making a new outfit that actually revolves around the opposing gender character in the game.
Though it did take me a little while to realize/notice that later on...

Also a reason for the 'hatred' are from the people who haven't really stuck around to watch the rest of the series and are still pretty much stuck at season 1-2. At least that's what I hear them tell me.

The one pokemon he ever gave away was that Beedrill he caught in that Bug catching Contest.

The three pokemon of his he released into the wild were agreements made between him and the pokemon because it made them happy.

Charizard, Squirtle, and Primeape are in training, but are still "his" pokemon (although Primeape will likely never be seen again).

The rest are all either with him or at Oaks.

This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. People make crap up on Ash based on one occurance just to bash him with.

Um, no. The reason beedrill was given away is because it was only used for Ash to win a contest. It wasn't going to be used later on, so the writers removed it. Turtwig is a staple character of Ash's team, so it will not be removed. Remember that episode where one kid wanted Ash's pikachu? He didn't give him away, now did he?

...having said that, I think I've found another reason why he is so hated. It is because he wins too much. He doesn't give any other main characters a chance in tournaments, and almost always wins by default (except for that whirlpool tournament). I think he may get more liked if he had a period of suffering (of course, by no fault of his own, if that happened, people would just call him stupid). Then people would either realise all that misfortune sucks, or be happy he doesn't win all the time anymore.

To those who said he didn't let team rocket catch wild pokemon: He was doing that because they were poaching pokemon. They weren't capturing them like a trainer would, but rather snagging them. This is illegal in the world of pokemon. Though, I do agree he is rather unfair by just blasting them over the horizon. I would let them go on the condition that they capture the pokemon the legal way instead of just mercilessly Star KOing them. Of course, they may be worried for the pokemon (even though James has proven to be a caring trainer) but Paul isn't that nice to his chimchar (from what I've heard) and Ash doesn't send him flying.

To those who said he didn't let team rocket catch wild pokemon: He was doing that because they were poaching pokemon. They weren't capturing them like a trainer would, but rather snagging them. This is illegal in the world of pokemon. Though, I do agree he is rather unfair by just blasting them over the horizon. I would let them go on the condition that they capture the pokemon the legal way instead of just mercilessly Star KOing them. Of course, they may be worried for the pokemon (even though James has proven to be a caring trainer) but Paul isn't that nice to his chimchar (from what I've heard) and Ash doesn't send him flying.

Can't Ash just talk to TR about catching wild pokemon instead of PIKACHU *insert random pikachu attack her*.
Also in the episode james go cacnea ash though TR put the pokemon in the the cage and he jumped to the conclusion that they stole cacnea.

pikachu doesn't randomly attack TR, and about the cacnea, they didn't do it the fair way; battle then pokeball
