If you wrote the Pokemon anime how would you have done it? What would you change?
I would have completely changed Kanto and Johto to be more like Hoeen and Sinnoh. Even though they didn't have contests back then I would have had the lead female of Kanto and Johto do something like that rather than having Misty tag along. The "breeder/caretaker" would have been some anime-only character like Tracey rather than Brock.
Jessie and James would be kept.
Gary would have appeared more in Kanto and would have been defeated in the Kanto League, Silver would have replaced him in Johto.
Ash would challange the Elite 4 and defeat them and decide that he wants to defeat the champion of every region, that is his goal and way of become "the best trainer"
An actual Team Rocket arc in Kanto and Johto.
The gym battles would be more like the Hoeen/Sinnoh gyms. The Kanto team would have left before Johto ever started
Ash wouldn't have released anything, just Oak'd them.
The teams would be emprovised
Ash: Pikachu, Ivysaur, Squirtle, Pidgeot, Snorlax, Charizard(I would have given him all 3 starters from Kanto just because its his homeland. Snorlax would have been caught earlier)
The lead female and breeder would be entirely different from Misty and Brock's obviously. They would have been composed of random pokemon like Cubone and would have gotten some of the pokemon that Ash/Misty/Brock got in the actual series instead of them like Butterfree, Vulpix and Psyduck.
Ash: Pikachu, Feraligatr, Bayleef, Magby, Noctowl, Donphan
Marina: Typhlosion, etc.
So what would you guys do?
