    In terms of what I'd do with the show overall, I wouldn't listen to a damn thing 4Kids told me regarding the removal of Japanese text and culture. If anything, I'd put in even more, just as a way of saying "Bite me, you xenophobic losers." I say this show should embrace its heritage, not try to conceal it, dammit.

    Now, onto the specifics.

    I would have paced Kanto a little better. The long string of fillers we got between Satoshi's sixth and seventh badges was quite a slog, and considering there wasn't much else to do in Kanto aside from collecting badges, a lot of what we got in between was hit or miss. But that'd be a lot easier to tolerate if the first six gyms weren't all clumped together in the first 30 or so episodes of the series.

    I would have played up the Orange Islands episodes to make Kenji a slightly deeper character. The obtainment of his elderly Strike would be the turning point in his character development, wherein he discovers a desire to help Pokémon instead of just watching them. Thus, he's got even more of a reason to join Ookido-hakase at the lab when he gets to Masara Town.

    Other than that, I'm pretty content with how the first two sagas went. There's a lot more I'd do to Jouto, though. I'd seek to make each episode more character driven, and not just about showcasing one Pokémon for 24 minutes. You look at some of these Jouto fillers, and they're absolutely shameless - it gets to a point where they went back to Pokémon they'd already devoted an episode to and gave them another episode, and tried to pretend we hadn't already seen them. And sometimes, it wouldn't even be a Generation II Pokémon (did we really need a Jouto filler about Poppo? Or Windie? Or Omanyte?). Houen improved on the show's episode structure, and Shinou perfected it to the point where fillers don't even feel like fillers - I just wish they'd gotten the hang of it a little earlier, that's all.

    With Houen, my big gripe is the Aqua-dan/Magma-dan climax, but I'm channeling my frustration with that through something else (I'm finally drawing that comic I talked about a year ago!). But aside from that, it was a great saga. Haruka's character development was great fun to watch, as she gradually went from clueless novice to cocky-yet-inexperienced to seasoned professional. And the way all the characters played off each other was excellent. It set things up for the picture-perfect Shinou saga, where character interaction has been cemented and everything has some sort of significance.

    JOHTO POKEMON

    Ash

    Pikachu: If you expect it to leave now, you're delusional.
    HootHoot-Noctowl: While traveling to Cherrygrove City, Ash stumbles across a shiny HootHoot whose flock has rejected it due to it's odd coloring, and catches hiim. Has a sarcastic, intelligent personality and likes to peck Ash when he's bored.
    Totodile-Croconaw-Feraligatr: In a random river, Ash finds a happy go lucky Totodile that loves to dance and perform. Even after evolution, it keeps its silly personality.
    Heracross: While making his way through Ilex Forest, Ash runs into a tree and somehow hits it hard enough to shake a Heracross out of the tree. Has a personality like Scooby-Doo from the Scooby-Doo series, with sap being it's version of Scooby-Snacks.
    Sunkern-Sonflora: While helping some random character garden, Ash meets and befriends a Sunkern, who later evolves into Sunflora. Has the same personality as the one from Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky.
    Cyndaquil-Quilava: His new rival, Silver tries to catch him before, but it runs away and meets Ash, who treats him with kindness. Starts out incredibly shy and hates battling, but after evolution becomes bolder.

    KRIS (Replaces Leaf, also a Coordinator.)

    Chikorita-Bayleef: Her starter Pokemon, same one Ash had.
    Mareep-Flaaffy-Ampharos: The first capture she ever made. A bossy Electric type who shocks everyone when she doesn't get her way and tends to throw tantrums.
    Natu-Xatu: An incredibly intelligent but weak Pokemon who Kris finds. He couldn't battle at all in the Natu stage and mostly did appeals, but with training was able to become her second strongest. Can see brief glimpses into the future and alerts the heroes when something bad is going to happen.
    Egg-Snubbul-Granbull: Recieves as a gift from the breeding couple in Goldenrod. An overly affectionate dog who loves to slather her owner with kisses.
    Skarmory: Becomes the "Odd one out" of her team. Incredibly viscious at first due to an experiment by Team Rokcet that gave it abnormal strength. With love and kindness, it becomes one of her major team players.
    Corsola: After a virus is passed around that affects many of the groups Pokemon, and she gets seperated from Ash and the breeder due to Feraligatr and Skarmory attacking her, she is rescued from drowning by a rather helpful Corsola. The thing will volunteer for anything, literally... and becomes a great assist to her.

    BREEDER

    Zubat-Golbat-Crobat: A proud Pokemon that is FURIOUS when the breeder cathces him, and hates him at first. Over time, the two bond, and he eventually evolves twice.
    Shuckle: While learning about Berry Juice from Old Man Shuckle (yes, I couldn't leave him out), the breeder and one Shuckle are put to test for making juice, and become close. Old man Shuckle lets him keep it, and it becomes his girl stopper of the region by wrapping it's tentacles around his ankles and tripping him.
    Qwilfish: While fishing, it hooks onto his rod...and him, won't let go, so he keeps it. Surprisingly intelligent, just won't show how smart he is.


    Will definitely post rivals and TR later!


    I claimed Skarmory!

    Kanto/Orange Islands/Sevii Isles



    Story
    It starts out the same way the original anime did (with additions like Oak explaining the pokemon universe, what trainers are, trainer ranks, etc). Ash is late and has to take Pikachu as his starter pokemon. Ash meets Leaf when his Pikachu is injured by ****** off Spearow and she joins him. She follows him to Pallet Town when he delivers Oak's parcel and gets her starter, a Clefairy(since Clefairy was the pokemon the writers were going to give Ash if they hadn't given him Pikachu). Eventually they meet a breeder named Randy that also joins them. Throughout the Kanto saga the personalities of the three main characters, their pokemon, and their rivals would all grow. In Kanto the events of Pokemon The First Movie (Mewtwo and Mew) would play out and Giovanni would be overthrown after Ash beats him at Viridian Gym. Of course the Team Rocket admins that I created myself (aside from Apollo) would play a huge role as well. All of the major Team Rocket stories from the games would be included like the Game Corner, Pokemon Tower, and Sliph Co. The Team Rocket admins (And Jessie, James, and Meowth) would try to rebuild Team Rocket after Giovanni quits. In the Sevii Isles they would capture the 3 legendary birds and be defeated by Ash, Leaf, and Gary who would save the 3 birds by releasing them. Spudnick and Armstrong would die but Apollo would escape by sacraficing most of his pokemon. Aside from the filler arc there's Ash's gyms and Leaf's contests. Ash would make it to the final round of the Kanto League but lose to Gary when Charizard refuses to battle. Mr Goodshow would see that Charizard is the only reason Ash lost and offer Ash a chance to battle the Kanto Elite 4 any way. All Ash has to do is prove himself by beating the 5 Orange Island gym leaders (who all actually battle in this version). Unfortunately there are no contests in the Orange Islands but Leaf uses the short time they're in the Orange Islands as a break and uses it to effectively train her pokemon for the next Grand Festival. When Ash gets back to Kanto he finds out that Team Rocket is causing trouble again at Sliph Co. on his way to Sliph Co. all of his pokemon but Pikachu leave him to do other things. Apollo, Spudnick, and Armstrong escape from Sliph Co. and reveal that they're headed towards the Sevii Isles. Being the hero he is, Ash decides to go to the Sevii Isles before challenging the Elite 4 to stop Team Rocket. Luckily they don't have to wait around doing nothing until Team Rocket attacks, the Sevii Isles has contests and 7 Battle Facilities to help Ash train before his Elite 4 challenge. After Team Rocket is defeated, Ash earns all 7 Frontier Symbols, and Leaf wins the Sevii Isles Grand Festival Ash goes on to challenge the Elite 4 and the new champion, Gary. Ash wins and is offered the position of champion but of course turns it down since his goal requires him to defeat the champion of every region, not just Kanto. Leaf decides to stay in Kanto while Ash and Randy heads to Johto. Ash also leaves all of his pokemon besides Pikachu behind with Oak so that he can broaded his team's strategies even further by catching and training even more types of pokemon.

    Ash: A trainer who just barely passed pokemon trainer school. He was the loser of Pallet Town and wants to prove that he's great by becoming the best trainer in the world. To do this he must travel to every region in the world and collect dozens of different types of pokemon and train them to help him defeat the champion of each region. He starts out as a the same noob he did in the actual anime but begins to grow and learn strategies slowly. I'd keep him the same way but I'd give him more of a background story and more personality.

    Pikachu - It would have had a whole background behind it. The reason why it didn't like humans and how Oak got it in the first place would have been explained. It would have literally been a lab rat for Team Rocket that Oak saved. That would also explain why Team Rocket constantly try to catch it. So that Ash could keep Pikachu on his team forever I'd find a way to regulate it's power so that the fluctuating could seem acceptable. Most like it would be some kind of story arc involving what happened to Pikachu in the first episode of AG and the light ball. Due to Team Rocket's experiements, Ash's Pikachu is no ordinary Pikachu. It's powers can top that of it's evolved form.

    Pidgey-Pidgeot - So Pidgey would be Ash's first capture ever rather then Caterpie. It would evolve to Pidgeoto rather quickly and then to Pidgeot near the middle-end of Kanto. It would be Ash's strongest pokemon until Charmeleon evolves becoming a rival for Ash's Charizard and the only one with enough power to match it. After the Orange Islands Ash would leave it in Kanto to protect wild Pidgey and Pidgeoto from the Fearow (Spearow) that attacked him in the first episode. However Ash would be able to call on it when ever necessary.

    Bulbasaur-Ivysaur: It would be Ash's second capture. It would be left by it's trainer at an abandoned village and protect the other abandoned pokemon there just like Ash's from the anime now. It would decide it's not ready to evolve in the same way it did in the actual anime but eventually evolve to save Ash and end up having a short lived grudge against him for making it evolve. Ash would show it that it's just as good as an Ivysaur as it was as a Bulbasaur and show it that it doesn't have to fear growing up. After the Orange Islands Ash leaves Ivysaur at Oak's to settle down the pokemon on his ranch. Like Pidgeot Ash calls upon it when ever he needs it, such as against the Elite 4.

    Charmander-Charizard: In this storyline Damien would have been a trainer from Pallet Town and a major rival of Ash's. Charmander would have been his starter. Damien would eventually release it in favor of pokemon with good IVs that Charmander helped him catch in the wild. Upon evoling into Charmeleon it would develop a gruff personality but would still help Ash out in gym battles. When it becomes a Charizard it would disobey Ash and only battle opponets it sees as worthy. It would cost Ash the league by refusing to battle Gary in the final round. After seeing that Ash would have won if Charizard hadn't refused to battle Mr Goodshow makes Ash a special offer, if he can defeat all 5 Orange Island gym leaders he may also challenge the Elite 4. During this saga Charizard begins obeying Ash but is left at the Charicific Valley in Kanto right afterwards. It is called back in the Sevii Isles arc to battle Team Rocket's Moltres and to battle the Elite 4.


    Squirtle: Just like Ash's other two Kanto starters, Ash's Squirtle was released by it's trainer for being too weak. It joins a group of wild Squirtle and becomes the leader of the Squirtle Squad. After Ash helps it, it decides to join him. It develops a rivalry with Gary's Blastoise. After the Orange Islands saga it joins the Squirtle Fire Fighting Squad but returns to Ash when ever he needs it. It has the same "cool guy" personality as it does in the actual anime.

    Cubone-Marowak: After it's mother was killed by Team Rocket it was saved by Mr Fuji and began to hate all humans other then Fuji. When Ash makes it to Lavendar Town Fuji suggests that the emotional, grumpy Cubone join him to stop Team Rocket's invasion of the Pokemon Tower. After Ash helps Cubone defeat Team Rocket and runs them out of the Pokemon Tower it starts trusting him. After seeing this Fuji suggests Ash bring it on his journey with him. Ash and Cubone both agree and Cubone joins his team in favor of Muk who is sent to Oak. Cubone is afraid of humans such as Leaf and Randy at first but grows more courageous. In the Orange Islands it is hurt so Ash leaves it at Oak's lab to rest for a while. It's actually pretty shy and emotional but it trys to act tough and pretends to have an "I don't care" attitude.

    Grimer-Muk: Ash catches it as a Grimer when a group of Grimer and their leader, a Muk, cause a blackout at the Power Plant. Gary catches the powerful Muk while Ash gets the halfwit, slowmo Grimer of the group. It evolves within 20 episodes and helps Ash out greatly in early Kanto but when Ash battles Sabrina it is turned into a doll along with Leaf and Randy. Ash goes to Lavendar Town with the gym leaders Misty and Brock for more training so that he can defeat Sabrina and save his friends. Ash fills his 6th slot with Cubone while in Lavendar Town so Muk is sent to Oak's lab as soon as Ash saves it. It is used sparingly in the rest of Kanto only being rotated onto Ash's team for the Kanto League for the most part but it is bought back for the Sevii Isles arc when Ash finds that his Kanto team all have to go off and do other things. I'd leave it's personality alone, the lovey-smelly-beast thing is actually pretty funny.

    Krabby-Kingler: It is caught on a whim when Oak tells Ash that Gary already has 50 pokemon and he only has 6. After being caught it is sent to Oak's and only used sparily in Kanto being rotated onto Ash's team for a small amount of gym battles(Blaine and Giovanni), a water pokemon tournement, and the League. It is a symbol of Ash's dream, to catch and train many different types of pokemon so that he can broaden his battle strategies and defeat any trainer in the world. It wouldn't see any actual adventures outside of a stadium until the Sevii Isles saga when Ash learns that he'll need to rely on more then just his Kanto starters, Pidgeot, and Marowak. It would have the same personality as Ash's Corphish from the anime now. It evolves early in the Sevii Isles arc

    Snorlax: A powerful pokemon that Ash catches in the Orange Islands. It stays with Oak until Ash heads to the Sevii Isles. It starts out lazy and Ash can't control it since all it wants to do is eat and sleep but when Ash finally gets it motivated it becomes the strongest pokemon on his Sevii Isles team. The Sevii Isles equivalent of Charizard


    Drowzee-Hypno: Before Ash leaves for the Sevii Isles Oak suggests that Ash should catch types of pokemon that he does not currently own. This is the reason Ash jumps at the chance to catch both Drowzee and Mankey. Drowzee was a pokemn being used by Cassidy and Butch to control an entire town's pokemon. After Jessie and James defeat Cassidy and Butch with Ash and co's help C&B are arrested and Drowzee is left abandoned. Officer Jenny entrusts the Drowzee to Ash. It has a mischeious personality and sides with Jessie and James when Ash first gets it. It puts it's friends to sleep so that Jessie and James can steal their pokemon. Ash finds out what Drowzee is doing and considers releasing it but instead he teaches it who it's eal friends are and that a life of crime doesn't pay (because it'd still be a kid's show and life lessons would be inevitable).

    Mankey-Primeape: It would be exactly the same as the Primeape Ash had in the actual anime only it'd spend longer as a Mankey and wouldn't be released.

    Since I've been studying the Jouto episodes lately, I might as well go into detail about what I'd change.

    - The first episode is great, but just as a touch of foreshadowing, I'd have Utsugi-hakase mention that Kenta, Marina, and Jun'ichi are the trainers who are coming to pick up the starter Pokémon tomorrow. (I know, this predates Crystal and the Raikou special, so this is a little implausible. Maybe it'd just be Kenta that he mentions, I don't know.)
    - I'd play up the Satoshi vs. Nanako battle to make Satoshi feel a little guilty about using Lizardon to sweep a rookie trainer's entire team, and make that the principal focus of the episode.
    - As it stands, Heracross is a pretty worthless capture. I'd make an arc out of his tendency to blow off battling in favor of searching for sap, and have Satoshi try to help him overcome this vice. The catch is that Heracross stubbornly doesn't want to overcome it, which ultimately forces Satoshi to deposit him.
    - I'd make the Donfan episode more character-driven, focusing it on Takeshi's efforts to impress Hiiragi with his knowledge of Pokémon breeding.
    - When Shigeru appears in the Hoho episode, I'd make him the focus of the story, setting up an arc where he's lost his passion for training and thus has become cold and distant. He reluctantly reveals that he hasn't caught any new Jouto Pokémon yet, and he doesn't have the enthusiasm for capturing that he once had. This would foreshadow the Final Conference episodes and Shigeru's eventual hiatus from the world of training.
    - After Satoshi captures Chikorita, I'd set up a rivalry between her and Fushigidane; the scrappy young newcomer versus the seasoned veteran. I'd do situations where Fushigidane is ready to come to the rescue, but Chikorita handles everything instead. This'd be a good plot to work into the Nuo episode, where both Chikorita and Fushigidane have a 4x type advantage.
    - I'd only change one tiny thing about the Hayato battle - I'd give him a Yorunozuku instead of a Hoho. He's got two powerhouses and then a dinky little owl; something's not right there.

    Anyway, I don't want to start rambling here, but this is what I'd do for starters. Suffice to say, any filler episode would be much more character-driven, with the plot somehow tying into the personality of one or more of the main characters.

    Also want to add that I'd try and NOT use a bunch of the same Pokemon, like how we see tons of Steelix and Roserade. They'd still appear and maybe be owned by a few characters, but in much less quanity.

    This is how I would do it.
    Ash wakes up on time, on his way he accidentally steps on an Abra which teleports him into a random forest.He gets Pikachu as his starter, I like the Team Rocket experiment idea, but I wouldn't have Oak be aware of this because that's just irresponsible.

    Pikachu-A pokemon with exceptionally high attacking capabilities after experimentation by Team Rocket but still suffers from it's species frailties.Every so often it builds up too much energy and needs an light ball to weaken it.

    Pidgey/Pidgeotto-Ash's first capture.Relied upon often in the earlier part of the series.Very laid back, not bothered whether it battles much.First one of Ash's Pokemon too evolve.After evolution it re-establishes itself as powerful.

    Caterpie/Metapod/Butterfree-Second capture, it evolves quickly firmly establishing itself as a powerhouse.When Ash catches more Pokemon he decides to rotate his 6th slot.

    Bulbasaur-Caught under same circumstances.Refuses to evolve, after refusing evolution he has trouble keeping up with the rest of the team which are evolving and becomes unhappy.Ash decides to work on his attacks instead and is able to teach him a variety of high powered moves.

    Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard-Starts off very timid and slowly becomes more confident.On evolution into Charmeleon he gains a significant power boost making him more confident and anxious to battle.During the league in Ash's battle with Richie he goes up against Richie's Charmeleon as Ash's last Pokemon which he defeats.Richie then sends out his last Pokemon Pikachu.Charmeleon attempts to battle it but cannot lay a single hit on it.He becomes enraged and evolves into Charizard, Charizard goes beserk so Ash is disqualified.

    Squirtle/Wartortle-The cool guy of Ash's team.Acts as a leader in Pikachus absence.Evolves shortly before the battle with Blaine.

    Gengar-A trickster who has exceptional battling capabilities when he's not playing tricks.Battles Sabrina and is used in the league.

    Muk/Kingler/Primeape-No different except Ash keeps Primeape.
    I never said I was deep,but I am profoundly shallow.

    I would basically run things the same way, except for some minor differences.

    Battle aboard the St. Anne: Ash would decide against trading back.

    Bye Bye Butterfree: This episode wouldn't exist, nor would any derivative of it.

    The Tower of Terror: Ash would capture Haunter in a Poké Ball, and would Oak Raticate for the gym battle.

    Haunter vs. Kadabra: Ash would win legitimately with Haunter's Lick and Night Shade attacks, rounding the whole thing off with Haunter learning Hypnosis. Oh, and he'd keep Haunter.

    Primeape goes Bananas: Charmander would still learn Rage, but would also fall to Primeape. It would be Haunter that defeated Primeape. Ash would Oak Haunter for Primeape. He'd use the buttons in his Pokedex to switch his Pokemon instead of calling Oak every time, too.

    The Punchy Pokemon: Ash would keep Primeape, but begin rotating his team every so often. After this episode, he switches Charmander for Raticate.

    Sparks Fly for Magnemite: Ash would Oak Bulbasaur for Muk.

    Dig Those Diglett: The entirety of Ekans and Koffing's evolutions would be shown. Weezing would learn Thunderbolt.

    Electric Soldier Porygon: I wouldn't allow the seizure-causing light effects. Also, Team Rocket would keep Porygon.

    Legend of Dratini: Ash would capture 28 Tauros, but finally succeed in catching Nidorino and Rhyhorn as well. Primeape would be subsequently Oak'd for Nidorino.

    Ninja Poke Showdown: Ash would use Nidorino against Koga's Venomoth. In the rematch, he'd use Raticate against Golbat. Raticate would learn Water Gun in this episode. This would also come after the Safari Zone eppy.

    March of the Exeggutor Squad: Ash would Oak Raticate and Pidgeotto for Bulbasaur and Charmander.

    Holy Matrimony!: Growlie goes with James.

    Who Gets to keep Togepi: Meowth learns BubbleBeam to defeat Brock's Graveler (it evolves in the battle), and starts to evolve when battling Pikachu, but suppresses it, and keeps battling out of sheer determination to keep Togepi. Eventually KO's Pikachu with Fury Swipes. Togepi would still want to go to Misty, but after hearing Meowth begging, Togepi has flashbacks to how Meowth cared for the egg, and realizes it wants to be with Meowth. Twerps are unhappy, but accept it.

    Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden: Bulbasaur ultimately decides to evolve, still learning SolarBeam.

    The Ultimate Test: The instructor was impressed with Ash so much that he let him keep the Weezing as a thank-you. Ash Oaks Ivysaur for Weezing.

    Battle for the Badge: Team Rocket keeps Machamp, Rhydon, and Kingler (gives them to Meowth). Meowth's Togepi is revealed to know Double-Edge.

    The Evolution Solution: Jessie keeps Shellder: A wild one winds up evolving Westwood's Slowpoke.

    Round One-Begin!: Ash Oaks Nidorino for Krabby, episode continues as usual.

    Friend or Foe Alike: Ash reconfigures his team to include Pikachu, Ivysaur, Charizard, Kingler, Weezing, and Raticate. Ritchie uses Sparky, Zippo, Happy, Fangs (Raticate), Floater (Haunter), and Spikey (Nidorino). Battle ends same way- Charizard is disqualified for disobeying Ash.

    Pallet Party Panic: Ash catches the Fearow, and doesn't release Pidgeot. He departs for the Orange Islands with Pikachu, Ivysaur, Charizard, Kingler, and Fearow.

    I might do the Orange Islands episodes later.
    I will say, though, that Fearow will also disobey Ash.

    Ash's Pokemon:
    Pikachu
    Ivysaur
    Charizard
    Squirtle
    Pidgeot
    Fearow
    Kingler
    Muk
    Tauros (x28)
    Nidorino
    Rhyhorn
    Weezing
    Haunter
    Primeape
    Raticate

    Misty's Pokemon:
    Staryu
    Starmie
    Horsea
    Psyduck

    Brock's Pokemon:
    Graveler
    Onix
    Zubat
    Vulpix

    Jessie's Pokemon:
    Arbok
    Lickitung
    Shellder
    Porygon

    James's Pokemon:
    Weezing
    Victreebel
    Growlithe

    Meowth's Pokemon:
    Togepi
    Machamp
    Kingler
    Rhydon


    EDIT: Some moves would see a redesign.

    Grass Knot: It'd be more of a green glowing Vine Whip.

    Frustration: See Thrash, but with a black aura.

    Return: The Pokemon would take on a pink aura, then would create many hearts in midair, which would turn to face their pointed ends at the opponent. The heart darts would then fly towards the opponent in as menacing a fashion as it is possible for hearts to fly.

    Growth: The Pokemon would glow green and grow.

    Dream Eater: The Pokemon would use psychic energy to make the opponent's dream appear above it in the form of a cloud. It would then take on a red aura, and beckon the cloud close to it. It would then stuff the dream cloud in its mouth and eat it.

    Hypnosis: In Poliwag, Poliwhirl, and Poliwrath's case, the spiral on its stomach would rotate to do the hypnotizing.

    Stone edge: The Pokemon's elbow, knee, or horn would take on a brown aura. The Pokemon would then rush the opponent, stabbing it with the aura'd appendage.

    Considering Ash didn't have a permanent 6th Pokemon in Kanto, I'd give him Eevee. It wouldn't evolve until Johto, miss out on the battle against Drake in favor of Tauros, and evolve into Espeon a couple episodes after Gary debuts Umbreon. Also, Bulbasaur would have evolved once. Before Johto starts, Ash would Oak Ivysaur, Charizard, and Squirtle, leaving him with Pikachu and Eevee.

    When Johto starts up, Ash catches Heracross and, later, a shiny Hoothoot. Against Falkner, Heracross stars against Pidgeot, despite the times four type disadvantage. Pikachu and Hoothoot are also used.

    From there, everything proceeds as normal until Eevee evolves into Espeon. Ash gets Phanpy's Egg and Oaks Espeon for it.

    Ash's team against Gary consists of Bayleef, Espeon, Muk, Heracross, Tauros, and Charizard.

    Hoenn proceeds as it already does, except May catches that Swablu and evolves it to Altaria, and Ash takes Cyndaquil to the Battle Frontier and evolves it into Quilava, Oaking it after the battle against Spenser. Oh, and Anabel uses a Gardevoir to account for Ash's Espeon.

    And that's all I'm changing... for now.
    Pokemon Y Friend Code: 3282-3535-2249

    Friend Safari: Pansage, Petilil, Gogoat

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    Ash's Pokemon

    Kanto

    Pikachu - His starter. It would start out disobedient but quickly become Ash's best friend and most loyal pokemon. In this saga it would decide it doesn't want to evolve and would learn iron tail and volt tackle. Oak caught Pikachu after saving it from Team Rocket who was literally using it as their lab rat. Because of Team Rocket's experiments Pikachu didn't trust any humans other then Oak until it met Ash. Although, Pikachu was also powered up to levels that exceed it's evolutions power due to their experiments. Giovanni wants Jessie, James, and Meowth to capture the "special" Pikachu at all costs. Pikachu is loyal, friendly, and brave.

    Ivysaur - Caught as a Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur would have been caught in a village full of abandoned pokemon. Bulbasaur was abandoned itself and has become the caretaker of this village's pokemon. As a Bulbasaur it would refuse to evolve as well but would be forced to evolve to save Ash. Due to this it would temporarily hold a grudge against Ash but would soon come to terms with it's new form. Ivysaur is gruff but lovable.

    Charizard - Charmander was originally Ash's rival, Damien's, pokemon. Upon using Charmander against Misty and losing horrible Damien would release Charmander. After Ash helps Charmander realize that Damien released it, Charmander joins Ash. Ash becomes determined to prove that Charmander could be stronger than any pokemon if trained properly. The problem is, Ash doesn't yet have the skills to make Charmander grow effectively. Upon evolving Charmeleon quickly realizes that Ash is holding it back and gets rather violent although Charmeleon still helps Ash out in gyms. However, upon evolving to Charizard it becomes completely disobedient and only battles on special occasions (Blaine, Mewtwo, and Damien). It eventually gets it's revenge against Damien at the Kanto League by defeating three of Damien's pokemon. However, in Ash's battle against Gary in the final round it refuses to battle yet again and costs Ash the League. Mr Goodshow sees that Ash would have won had Charizard not disobeyed and makes Ash an offer. He can challenge the Elite 4 just like Gary if he completes two goals. 1. Defeat the 5 Orange Island gym leaders. and 2. Learn to control Charizard. Charizard is sarcastic and proud.

    Squirtle - Originally it was the fiesty leader of a Squirtle Squad that were all abandoned by their trainers. It actually takes Leaf hostage and threatens to kill her. Squirtle sees how Ash tries to save it from Jessie, James, and Meowth and decides to join him. It develops a rivalry against Gary's Blastoise. Squirtle is very competative and comical.

    Pidgeot - Ash catches a Pidgey to help look for Team Rocket after they make off with Pikachu and Oak's parcel. As a Pidgeot it develops a violent rivalry with Ash's other fully evolved pokemon, Charizard.

    Marowak - Ash's Cubone's mother was originally killed by Team Rocket inside the Lost Tower. Mr Fuji saved Cubone from certain doom making him the only human that Cubone trusts. Mr Fuji suggests that Cubone join Ash when he goes to defeat Team Rocket in the Lost Tower. Together Ash and Cubone defeat Team Rocket and calm the spirit of Cubone's deceased mother. Cubone eventually evolves and stars against Giovanni in the Viridian Gym officially putting an end to his reign. When Ash first captures Cubone it's afraid of people like Misty, Brock, Leaf, and Randy but eventually grows to feel safe around all people. Cubone could be considered the "emo" of the group


    Muk - Ash catches a Grimer at the Cerulean Powerplant. Gary catches it's leader, a Muk, in the very same episode. Grimer evolves rather quickly and plays a huge role on Ash's team until Saffron City. Ash uses Muk against Sabrina in his battle against her and loses. Muk (along with Leaf and Randy) are turned into dolls while, with the help of Sabrina's father, Ash escapes. Gym Leaders, Misty and Brock, are appointed by Professor Oak to assist Ash on his way to Lavendar Town for training so that he can go back and save his friends from Sabrina. In Lavendar Town Cubone takes up Ash's 6th slot so when Ash saves Muk it's sent directly to Oak's lab. There is a running joke where Grimer/Muk glomps many characters.


    Krabby - Ash becomes determined to capture and train more pokemon after he hears that Gary already has 50 pokemon while he only has 6. Ash captures Krabby but hardly ever uses it. Only for the League and two gym battles this saga. Oak reminds Ash that a good trainer rotates his pokemon and has a good arsenal of reserves so that he/she can be prepared for any kind of battle. In this saga Krabby takes a backseat until following sagas where Ash learns that he needs to gain a good variety of pokemon rather then constantly relying on the same team of 6.



    Orange Islands

    Pikachu - Pikachu doesn't have many changes in this saga. It's increadibly short

    Ivysaur - It proves itself to be a powerhouse. After Ash returns home he finds that Oak's ranch is in trouble. Many fights between pokemon there have broken out. Ivysaur is left behind to settle the fights.

    Charizard - Charizard begins to obey Ash after being saved after losing a battle to James's (also disobedient) Gyarados. Charizard has a rematch against Gyarados and wins. After returning to Kanto Ash finds out that Team Rocket is taking over Sliph Co. again so they go to stop them once more. On the way to Saffron City Ash comes across the Charcific Valley which he leaves Charizard at for training


    Squirtle - On the way to Saffron Squirtle also leaves the group. It joins the Squirtle Firefighting Squad lead by Officer Jenny.

    Pidgeot - The rivalry between it and Charizard dies down in the Orange Islands. On the way to Saffron Ash and co. encounter the Fearow (Spearow) that chased Ash at the beginning of his journey attacking a group of Pidgey and Pidgeoto. Pidgeot scares it away after battling it and Ash leaves it on Route 1 to prevent the Fearow from attacking again. Like all of the released pokemon in my version of the Pokemn anime, it'll return, and much strong.

    Marowak - It's injured in the battle against Blake(Drake), the Orange Islands Gym Leader. Ash decides to leave it at Oak's to rest.


    Snorlax - A pokemon that's caught in the Orange Islands and sent directly to Oak's lab since Ash has a full team of 6 already.

    Sevii Isles

    Pikachu - No major changes for Pikachu until the next saga

    Muk - Muk is bought back to Ash's team when he realizes that all of his other pokemon are off doing other things. Muk grows increadibly in this saga.

    Kingler - Krabby is also bought back. It evolves after battling a few Frontier Brains. We get to see it's true personality in this saga. It's a very cranky pokemon that constantly pinches Ash.

    Snorlax - Snorlax is the final pokemon Ash withdraws from Oak's Lab before heading to the Sevii Isles to stop Team Rocket once and for all (and to do some last minute training at the Battle Frontier before challenging the Elite 4 and Gary). Snorlax doesn't want to do anything but eat and sleep at first but Ash eventually gets it into the fighting spirit and it quickly becomes his main powerhouse of the Sevii Isles saga.

    Hypno - Cassidy and Butch hypnotize an entire cities pokemon with a Drowzee. After Ash and co. defeat Cassidy and Butch for the final time they're arrested by Officer Jenny. Jenny makes a request and asks Ash to raise the Drowzee and get it out of the evil ways that Cassidy and Butch bought it into. Drowzee is very manipulative at first but disdainfully accepts that it's stuck as part of the "good guys". Drowzee evolves and actually becomes a powerhouse on Ash's team. It has a scheming personality and manages to be calm, dark, and serious, yet comical, at the same time.

    Primeape - Ash decides he's going to fill the final two slots on his team with two new pokemon since his Kanto team have all left for the time being. Ash's first capture in the Sevii Isles is a Mankey. Ash finds that controlling new pokemon and training them from scratch is a pain. Mankey is very wild and uncontrollable and that only gets worst after it evolves. With both Mankey and Snorlax hard to control, Ash wishes he could call on his Kanto team but decides he'll never grow that way. Ash enters Primeape in the P1 Grand Prix, gains Primeape's respect, and wins the whole thing. From that point on Ash uses Primeape quite often (Although it does still give him a black eye from time to time)


    Marowak - Ash temporarily brings Marowak back to enter a fencing contest. Marowak is now completely healed. Ash allows Marowak to pay respect to his mother at the Memorial. Ash wins the fencing contest with Marowak and decides to leave Marowak with Kohan, a master fencer.

    Charizard - Ash faces off against Spudnick and Moltres. Gary faces off against Apollo and Zapdos. Leaf faces off against Armstrong and Articuno. Ash's battle is over Mt Ember's canyon. Since all of his pokemon are landbased they lose rather quickly. Luckily Charizard shows up at just the right time. Ash rides on Charizard's back as Spudnick rides on Moltres during the mid-air flame battle. Charizard wins and Spudnick falls to his death. Ash grabs Moltres's master ball and sets it free. Charizard then goes back to the Charcific Valley.


    Kanto Elite 4
    Ash-Rotation:
    Pikachu
    Ivysaur
    Charizard
    Squirtle
    Pidgeot
    Marowak
    Muk
    Kingler
    Snorlax
    Hypno
    Primeape


    Johto

    Pikachu - It becomes overloaded on electricity and nearly dies. Because of this, Ash gets the light ball to regulate it's electrical power. This will explain why it's power fluctuates so much. Pikachu is held hostage forced to evolve by a member of Neo-Team Rocket in Slowpoke's Well. Raichu bcomes depressed with it's new form and can't get over it. Raichu sweeps Bugsy in a gym battle. When Ash saves Celebe in Ilex Forest it takes them back in time to before Pikachu had evolved and this time Ash manages to prevent the evolution. This also means Ash needs to earn his Hive Badge again, however.

    Croconaw - Ash gets a Totodile from Professor Elm to battle Silver who had just stolen his Chikorita. Pikachu is still healing from it's light ball ordeal. Ash loses and Silver even though he's a rookie trainer (although he has been through extensive harsh traininhg under his father Giovanni throughout his childhood). Totodile is hyper but rather wimpy. Silver explains that it's IVs are crappy and he should release it. Ash works with Totodile and turns it into a powerhouse. It eventually evolves and becomes even stronger. It keeps it's jolly personality however.


    Bayleef - Ash catches a Chikorita. After saving it, it develops a slight crush on it's trainer. Chikorita is an attention hog and gets into arguments with Pikachu after she sees that Ash favors it. Upon evolving Bayleef becomes emotional after Ash yells at it but comes around and accepts his appology. Bayleef may be emotional but it's one of his strongest Johto pokemon.


    Cyndaquil - Ash catches a shy Cyndaquil that has trouble controlling it's back flame. Ash eventually gets it fired up (literally) and it becomes his most reliable Johto pokemon.

    Noctowl - Ash has to catch a Hoothoot before passing through the Dark Forest. It just so happens that the Hoothoot he stumbles across is shiny (and kind of a pretentious douchebag). The Hoothoot is very intelligent and manages to outwit Ash. He eventually manages to catch it. After joining the group it's mostly a loner but does get irritated at Ash's more dimwitted pokemon's hijinks. It evolves and becomes a powerhouse despite being much smaller then the average Noctowl. It's left at Oak's lab at the end of the saga.

    Donphan - Ash's first egg was won in a tournement. This egg hatches into a young and impressionable Phanphy. Phanphy is very baby-ish but eventually grows more mature. It evolves into Donphan and is able to keep up with the rest of Ash's pokemon. It's left at Oak's lab at the end of the saga.


    Heracross - Heracross is caught and remains on Ash's team for a while but is eventually sent to Oak's lab. Ash has to send a pokemon to his storage area to get Phanphy's egg. This Heracross constantly humpsattacks Chikorita to get at it's sap. Heracross was powerful as soon as Ash caught it which is why he decides to leave it at Oak's instead of all of his other pokemon. Ash does call on Heracross for later Johto gym battles however.

    Sudowoodo - Ash catches a Sudowoodo that's blocking the road to Goldenrod. Sudowoodo is increadily good at mimicing making it hard for Ash to catch. At this point he already has six pokemon so it's sent directly to Oak. Ash uses Sudowoodo for a few Johto gym battles.


    17 Elements Isle

    Pikachu - No changes this saga

    Feraligatr - Croconaw quickly evolves and is a major help for Ash against a few of the 17 Elemental Guardians. Ash learns that it would be best to train Feraligatr to specialize in attack power. Ash succeeds in making Feraligatr amazingly strong. However, Ash comes across a Machamp trainer that easily trumps Feraligatr in attack power. This trainer uses the power bracer. Ash leaves Feraligatr with this man for extra training.


    Bayleef - Becomes terminally ill with a disease that effects grass types and even Nurse Joy says that she can't save it. This makes Ash as sad as he's ever going to be in the series. Bayleef's condition is getting worst and Ash meets an armomatheropist specialist. This woman begins to heal Bayleef and Bayleef starts to show some real recovery. The woman tells Ash that Bayleef is going to be fine and will make a full recovery but it needs some time. She also promises to train Bayleef after it's healed to make it stronger then it's ever been.


    Cyndaquil - Ash meets a harsh fire breather and his Magmar. Magmar proves it's much stronger then Cyndaquil. Ash is surprised to see that his shy little Cyndaquil wants to stay with this tough trainer. Ash agrees with his pokemon's request and leaves Cyndaquil behind. (The reason I'm having pokemon released is so that Ash can train many pokemon at once. The 6 he's carrying around and all of the pokemon he has "in training")

    Heracross - It becomes a regular member of Ash's team for part of the saga and participates in many battles against the 17 Element Guardians. It is eventually left to protect a forest full of bug and grass types from construction workers that are using their Pinser to chop down (sap filled) trees.

    Sudowoodo - Just like Heracross, Ash adds it to his team on the way to 17 Elements Isles. After many hard battles Ash leaves it with a mimic comedian to do stand up comedy.

    Delibird - Ash accidentally catches a Delibird that belongs to what's left of Team Rocket. Jessie and James become mad since they were planning on keeping Delibird as their own pokemon. Delibird had many quirks. It's a cleptomaniac and often causes Ash to get in trouble due to it's thieving.


    Larvitar - Ash saves an egg from a Pokemon Hunter. The egg later hatches into Larvitar. The Larvitar isn't like other new born pokemon, it doesn't trust Ash, Marina, Kotone, or Randy. Because of this, Ash doesn't officially try to catch it right away. Instead they travel with Larvitar and let it grow used to them. It takes a group of wild Unown showing Ash and co. Larvitar's inner thoughts that reveal it's pre-birth adventures. The pokemon hunter had attacked it's mother, Tyranitar, and stolen it as an egg. Ash and co. realize that have to return Larvitar to it's mother. When they arrive at -insert anime-only mountain here- the hunter attacks again and steals Tyranitar. At this point Larvitar decides to join Ash to save it's mother. Together they defeat the hunter, find the client he sold Tyranitar to, and save it. Ash lets Larvitar choose between him or it's mother and it choses to stay with him but promises to visit it's mother. It becomes a powerhouse on Ash's team. At the end of the saga it's mother reappears and it keeps it's promise of seeing her again.


    Hitmontop - Ash catches a Tyrouge that trains itself to near death. The Tyrouge doesn't want to accept Ash's training style believing it won't be effective enough to make it strong but Ash shows it that if it keeps on training the way it is, it's muscles will just deterioate making it weaker. Tyrouge accepts Ash's training style, evolves, and becomes a major powerhouse on his team.


    Ursaring - Ash and co. meet a manipulate and rather vile Teddiursa. This Teddiursa uses fake tears to fool Ash and co. into believing it's innocent and gets their other pokemon in trouble. Teddiursa ends up catching itself in one of Ash's pokeballs during it's mischief. It continues being mischievous but battles on Ash's side and eventually evolves into an Ursaring. It's learns that it's cuteness has faded and it's mischievous side dies. It becomes wild and vicious. During one battle it continues to trash it's opponet even after it's won the battle. After this Ash decides he has to train Ursaring to be less violent in battle, and to show some sportsmanship.


    Eevee-Espeon - Bill reappears and gives Ash an Eevee. This Eevee quickly evolves due to Ash's friendship and becomes an Espeon. Aside from being a powerhouse there's really nothing to say about Espeon.

    Hoenn

    Pikachu - Pikachu learns return during this saga. It's an attack that is as strong as volt tackle due to Pikachu's high happiness. It also learns light screen

    Grovyl - Ash catches a loner Treecko that evolves into a loner Grovyl. Grovyl's a bit of a combination of Noctowl and Tyrouge. Treecko/Grovyl's some what of a rogue. It's tribe kicks it out for being a trouble maker and then Ash adopts it.

    Marshtomp - Ash gets a quirky and somewhat simple minded Mudkip. Despite being unintelligent it's a very powerful pokemon. It's commonly used as comic relief. Upon evolving to Marshtomp it grows even stronger.


    Swellow - Ash catches a Tailow with extremely high will power. It manages to continue fighting even after taking several super effective hits from Pikachu. Tailow evolves and still has great endurance but ends up severly injured due to it's stubborness and unwillingness to lose a battle. Because of this Ash sends it to Oak's to rest for a while. It returns shortly afterwards and Ash teaches it how to use it's impressive speed to dodge attacks rather then just relying on it's endurance and destroying it's body.


    Numel - Numel is another pokemon used for comic relief. Ash has trouble battling with Numel. It's low speed isn't something Ash is accustomed to when it comes to fire types. Ash eventually develops a training style to put Numel's great power to work. Numel's personality is hard to decipher. It always has the same blank stare on it's face and takes a long time to respond to it's surroundings.

    Glalie - Ash catches a Snorunt and has no real problems with it until it evolves. Since Ash is unfamilar with training a pokemon such as Glalie he has no idea what strategies he should use while battling with Glalie. Ash encounters a Weezing trainer that teaches him how to use levitating pokemon effectivly. Snorunt joins Ash after saving him and his friends from a blizzard.

    Makuhita - A pokemon he catches and when his team is full meaning it gets sent to Oak. When Swellow is injured it temporarily joins his team. It is often used for gym battles and in the League however. It's capture episode it ate Ash's backpack.

    Spoink - Another pokemon Ash catches during Hoenn that is sent directly to Oak's lab. It is never able to be part of Ash's main team but is used for Gym Battles and during the League. It's an extremely happy and hyper pokemon.


    Absol - Ash and co. encounter an angry mob that's trying to ride a wild Absol out of town. Ash eventually catches the bitter Absol and promises to train it and make it see that not all people are bad. It is used in a few Gym Battles and during the League but doesn't become part of Ash's team until later.



    AG Battle Frontier

    Pikachu - No changes

    Sceptile - It evolves early in the saga and due to pushing itself so hard it becomes unable to use any attacks. Ash later helps it regain it's attacks and it becomes the main powerhouse on his team until Ash loses to Anabel. Sceptile gets angry at itself for losing and runs off into a forest. Ash finds it training itself hard and lets it train. Ash tries to call it back to it's ball so they can continue their journey but Sceptile releases itself and makes it clear to Ash that it wants to stay and train on it's own. A true loner to the very end.


    Marshtomp - Ash comes across a grass type trainer who urges Ash to use a pokemon with a disadvantage. Marshtomp is used and loses badly. A salesman jumps out with his Quagsire and impressively defeats the grass type trainer. It turns out the grass type trainer is his sales partner. The salesman explains that he specializes in training pokemon to overcome their weaknesses and offers to train Marshtomp for a small fee. Ash is upset that he doesn't have the money since Marshtomp seems to want the training. After some Team Rocket antics the salesman sees Marshtomp's passion and decides to train it for free.

    Hariyama - Makuhita is made a permanent part of the team after Hoenn and quickly evolves. Hariyama likes to intimidate opponets with it's large size but is a coward when fighting opponets even bigger then itself. Hariyama eventually gets over this and becomes a powerhouse. Ash leaves Hariyama with a Snorlax trainer to practice sumo wrestling.


    Grumpig - Spoink also becomes a permanent member of the team and evolves. It keeps it's hyper personality.

    Absol - Now that we see it outside of an arena we see that it's personality is rather brooding. It's hard for even Ash to raise Absol's happiness. Absol uses a psychic attack to show Ash it's past. I was always chased, demonized, and mistreated because people consider it an omen. Eventually Ash raises it's happiness. One day Ash has a trainer battle in the middle of a small village. Upon releasing Absol from it's ball, Ash's yokle opponet runs in supersticious fear. Ash, May, Max, and Randy are chased out of the village. Jessie, James, and Meowth see this as an opportunity to plunder the village. The village's only defense, the sheriff, has no chance against Team Rocket. Ash and Absol save the day and the village considers Absol a hero. Absol remains in the village to protect it from further damage.

    Torkoal - Ash gets a crybaby Torkoal. This Torkoal is increadibly strong from the beginning.

    Flygon - Ash's first dragon type. Ash gets it as a Trapinch and it's evolution is rather quick. Despite his experience, Ash can't control a dragon type. It takes some getting used to but Flygon eventually listens to him 100%

    Sharpedo - Ash's first seabased pokemon. He catches it in a fishing competition. Ash can't really battle with it so he tries to send it directly to Oak. Oak tells him not to give up on it, there's a way to use any pokemon effectively. Carvannah evolves before this problem is solved. Ash realizes that he can make Sharpedo mobile on land by having it dart around like a torpedo with aqua jet. It is the "torpedo" pokemon after all. Despite rough beginnings it becomes one of Ash's stronger pokemon. It gets startled when toughed and hurts Ash with it's rough skin.

    Orre and FRLG

    Ash's Kanto team returns while he defends his Kanto Champion title and battles Team Snagem in Orre

    Swinub - A shadow pokemon Ash catches and purifys. Ash doesn't use it much beyond that.

    Sinnoh

    Pikachu - During this saga Ash tries to perfect thunder armor. A strategy that will make it's electrical attacks top notch even though it's power's being regulated by the light ball. They eventually succeed but it's such a difficult move it takes the whole saga.

    Swinub - After noticing that it hasn't had much training Ash decides to bring it to the Sinnoh region along with Pikachu. It does well in the gyms but eventually shows more interest in contests. Ash trades it to Dawn for Buizel.

    Staraptor - Ash catches a Starly to help find is lost Pikachu upon arriving in Sinnoh. It grows into a strong Staraptor. Unlike the last three birds who all had dramatic storylines, Staraptor is used for comic relief. However, of all of them it may be the strongest yet. After Ash's full battle with Paul it becomes apparent that his Sinnoh team just isn't strong enough the way they are and one by one they end up leaving for special training that gives them 100% focus rather then having to share training with the 5 other pokemon on Ash's team. Staraptor is left with a Skarmory training to perfect roost.


    Grotle - Upon evolving Grotle has weight problems. Just watch the anime, I'd use the same story.

    Buizel - Same as the actual anime. It would be left with a Hitmonchan trainer to train solo before the League

    Infernape - Same story as the anime. Monferno would evolve in the League against Paul and master blaze.

    Gliscor - Same as the anime. It would have been used much more often. It would be left with an air master with a Jumpluff to train.

    Riolu - Ash gets an egg from Riley. It hatches into Riolu which joins his team after something's left. Ash learns to bond aura with it making it extremely powerful. (Ash vs Paul, 6 on 6 would take place when Ash has 4 badges)

    Cranidos - Ash would find a fossil while searching the underground with Byron. It would later be revived into a Cranidos. Cranidos would be fascinated by technology and constantly distracted by looking around at what the world has become when it's supposed to be battling. Ash fixes this problem and it's fascinations are just used as comic relief from then onward.

    Spiritomb - The last pokemon that joins Ash's side after Staraptor, Gliscor, and Buizel's release. It's formed when Ash is given an odd keystone from a creepy old woman. The souls of Ash and all of his friends from over the years are formed into the odd keystone. This brings their self consciousness to Spiritomb's realm. Spiritomb's capture episode would be a hilarious mental reunion of every major character of the show while their motionless bodies lay in the real world. Eventually everyone escapes Spiritomb's realm and Ash leaves the keystone behind. Spiritomb cries and follows Ash. In the following episode Ash catches Spiritomb who terrorizes a village to get his attention. Despite being a ghost/dark type and attacking the village it's actually a rather comical and friendly pokemon.

    Aipom - An Aipom follows Ash around for a while and steals his hat. He eventually catches it during Dawn's Grand Festival.


    Battle Zone

    Pikachu - Nothing new

    Grotle - it is left with a trainer that specializes in training heavy pokemon at the beginning-middle of the saga.

    Infernape - In the middle of the saga it would battle Ash's Charizard, lose, go into a depression, and then Ash would leave it with a move tutor to grow stronger.

    Lucario - Riolu would evolve, become a major powerhouse and get left with an aura guardian

    Rampardos - Cranidos evolves

    Spiritomb - Left to protect the balance of the spirit world and real world.

    Ambipom - Evolves and becomes even more playful

    Dusknoir - Caught as a Duskull in Spiritomb's departure episode. It becomes the main powerhouse of Ash's team this saga. Dusknoir has a serious personality.

    Gible - Same one from the actual anime

    Drapion - Caught as a Scorupi.

    I'll write up a full conclusion at a later date, but for now, I'll keep it short. (In comparison)

    Kanto: Gary, Richie, Damien and maybe AJ would all become actual rivals to Ash, showing up earlier on and appearing a lot more often than they did. Ash would actually earn his badges too... there'd also be a Rocket based storyline behind the 8th gym.

    Misty would be a good rival to Ash too, and she would challenge 'masters' of each elemental type, aiming to prove her abilities. She'd gain a rival in the person who left Pallet with the Bulbasaur, and possibly or two of the COD's.

    Brock would be like himself, except he'd capture something to prove his abilities as a breeder, maybe a Machop that's too afraid to fight larger opponents, and he manages to coax the Pokemon out of it, evenutally becoming a powerhouse on his team.

    Johto would follow the same sort of line, Ash and Misty would both recieve good rivals, and maybe Brock would in a Paul-esque trainer, who insists on mis-treating his Pokemon to get them to perform well.

    Ash would end up releasing his Kanto Pokemon before the first Johto badge too, meaning he'd have to go the whole Johto journey with his Johto Pokemon, rather than those from Kanto.

    There'd be a few other changes, there'd be more battles - Kanto was a time where the writers tested the ground, so to speak, so they didn't focus on the battling portion of the anime. Like I said, I'll come round to making a full explanation.

    The main female's pokemon:

    Kanto

    Leaf's Clefairy:
    Ash destroys Leaf's bike as she's on her way to Pallet Town to get her starter so she forces Ash to accompany her as she heads to Pallet. As you know, Leaf is too late to get one of the Kanto starters just as Ash was so Oak is forced to give her one of his "special" pokemon. She gets a Clefairy.This Clefairy disobeys Leaf just like Pikachu disobeyed Ash. Leaf and Clefairy quickly become friendly just like Ash and Pikachu, but unlike Pikachu, Clefairy is a mischievous troublemaker. Clefairy is the butt of many running jokes. Clefairy grows into a powerhouse and helps Leaf out greatly in contests.


    Leaf's Butterfree:
    Leaf's first capture is an accidental one. When Leaf first started her journey she hated bug types and didn't want anything to do with Caterpie. She tries to release Caterpie but can't bring herself to being so cruel even to a bug type. Caterpie remains ever joyful as it attemots to gain it's trainer's love. Her distaste for bug types carrys on to when Caterpie evolves. Metapod is eventually captured by a herd of Beedrill and Leaf has a digfficult time bringing herself to save it. At this point Metapod gives up on Leaf but this is short lived as it protects Leaf from a Beedrill after it sees that Leaf has come to save it. Metapod evolves into Butterfree and defeats all of the Beedrill. After seeing Butterfree, Leaf learns that even bug types can be majestic and good at contests and grows to love Butterfree just as much as her other pokemon.


    Leaf's Jolteon:
    Leaf catches Eevee after competing with Derek. Derek catches the Eevee that Leaf originally had her heart set on but Leaf manages to catch one for herself any way. Eevee is a good battler and bonds with Leaf more then either Clefairy or Butterfree. It is for this reason that Leaf has a difficult time evolving it. After seeing that Eevee wants to evolve into Jolteon Leaf decides she's going to do what's best for Eevee and enters an Eevee contest which both Marcus and Derek are also entered in. Marcus and Derek both get to pick their evolutionary stone prize before Leaf due to coming in a higher place in the tournement then her but luckily neither of them chose the thunder stone. Leaf evolves Eevee and it becomes her main powerhouse of the time. Eevee and Jolteon are both extremely hyper.

    Psyduck:
    Leaf and Melany are both competing to catch a Golduck. Melany ends up catching the Golduck and Leaf is stuck with a Psyduck. This is no ordinary Psyduck however. It is unable to use any mores at all except confusion which it can only use when it's headache is severe enough. Psyduck also has difficulty swimming so it's basically useless when Leaf first catches it. Psyduck eventually learns to use basic moves like scratch, water gun, and hidden power and the ability to swim but still can't control it's strongest attacks, it's psychic moves. After doing to meditation training taught to Leaf by a COTD Psyduck learns how to control it's psychic attacks upon it's will and learns both zen headbutt and confusion. Psyduck actually ends up Leaf's strongest pokemon in Kanto. No matter how much development it gets, it retains it's dimwitted personality.

    Leaf's Vulpix:
    Leaf gets her Vulpix from a Pokemon Stylist. Vulpix is a conceited ***** (using the literal term for a female kanine) but is very loyal to Leaf. Vulpix tends to have problems with the other members of the team, particularly Ash's Squirtle.




    Orange Islands

    Leaf's Clefairy:
    No changes in the Orange Islands aside from maybe a new attack.


    Leaf's Butterfree:
    Butterfree is left home to train with Leaf's mother at the end of the Orange Islands arc.

    Leaf's Jolteon:
    Also left home.

    Leaf's Psyduck:
    Leaf leaves Psyduck with Misty at the end of the Orange Islands arc to train but it returns to the Sevii Isles Grand Festival.

    Leaf's Ninetales:
    There are no contests in the developing Orange Islands yet however Leaf doesn't just sit around while Ash collects badges. She trains her pokemon fiercely for her next set of contests. A firebreather ends up using his fire stone on Vulpix when he sees that it wants to have the strength to save Leaf and Clefairy from Jessie, James, and Meowth. Leaf is surprised, but glad, to see her new Ninetales.

    Leaf's Lapras:
    Leaf's only capture in the Orange Islands occured when she and the others first arrived in the Orange Islands. Ash and co. were fishing for something that could give them a ride through the Orange Islands due to the fact that the Orange Islands doesn't have a ferry service. Leaf ends up catching a Lapras but that didn't end Ash and co's problems. Lapras was disobedient and refused to give them a ride. After some work they eventually talk it into being obedient and it acts as their primary means of transportation through the Orange Islands. It's battle skills remain mostly unknown since it's only battles during this saga are against TR or training with one of Ash's/Leaf's pokemon.

    Sevii Isles

    Leaf's Clefairy:
    No changes. It's comical antics continue.

    Leaf's Ninetales:
    Leaf decides to bring it with her sense she hasn't had an opportunity to use it in a contest since it's evolution.

    Leaf's Lapras:
    In this saga it proves it's strength and becomes Leaf's main powerhouse. It is even used in the battle against Armstrong and his Articuno and ends up defeating them.

    Leaf's Gloom:
    Ash and co. meet a very shy Oddish which burrows into the ground at the sight of people. It eventually gets over it's shyness and evolves into Gloom.

    Leaf's Pichu:
    Randy creates his first egg when he leaves his Ditto at the Sevii Isles breeding center. Randy cares for the egg and it hatches into Pichu. Upon hatching Leaf is the first person Pichu sees and considers it his mother. Pikachu becomes a father figure for the new born Pichu. Pichu quickly adapts to contests and becomes a powerhouse even though it is very young.



    Johto

    Leaf's Bellosom:
    Leaf is continuing her second journey through Kanto as Ash and Randy travel through Johto. As Ash and co. make a stop at a Breeding Center they get a phone call from Leaf on their PokeGear, she is in Saffron City, sight of the new bullet train heading to Goldenrod City in Johto. Ash and co. just happen to be close to Goldenrod so Leaf decides to meet them there. On the way to Goldenrod Ash and co. find out that Jasmine is holding a pokemon contest. Kris and Leaf both decide to enter. It's revealed that Gloom evolved into Bellosom and it wins the Jasmine Cup for Leaf. Leaf departs on the Bullet Train.

    Kris's Togepi:
    Kris gets an egg as her starter pokemon rather then an actual pokemon. This egg comes from her father, Mr Pokemon. Eventually it hatches into a Togepi. The very young Togepi is unable to adapt to Kris's harsh style of training. It needs love and care. Kris even comes close to releasing Togepi for being to weak but Ash and Randy talk her out of it. Kris also gets angry at Togepi for not evolving but ironically doesn't realize that it's her harsh treatment that's keeping it from evolving. Kris eventually calms down, accepts her friend's goody-two-shoe style of training, and turns Togepi into a very good contest pokemon.

    Kris's Ledian:
    Kris catches multiple Ledyba but only keeps one after checking their stats in her pokedex. Like all of Kris's pokemon, Ledyba is indifferent towards the cruel Kris. Due to Kris's cruel ways she loses her first four contests and takes it out on her pokemon. Ledyba eventually evolves much to Kris's enjoyment but is still unable to take down major opponets. It's not until Kris begins bonding with her pokemon that Ledian becomes a powerhouse.

    Kris's Politoed:
    Kris catches a Poliwag which is probably the pokemon she's the harshest towards early in the saga. Poliwag is a very nervous and reserved pokemon which causes Kris to deem it as weak. It's Poliwag's determination that brings Kris to her senses in the first place. Poliwag fights a COTD and continues fighting even though it should have been KOed by then. Poliwag eventually evolves into Poliwhirl and starts to show what a powerhouse it truely is and then it finally evolves to Politoed when Kris forces a King's Rock on it and demands Ash to trade with her temporarily. Politoed becomes so strong that Kris feels bad about evolving it. Kris feels that she's not good enough to train such a strong pokemon and regrets being such a hardass earlier. Politoed assures her that he forgives her and actually becomes a jolly, carefree pokemon now that it knows it can trust it's trainer.

    Kris's Snubble:
    Kris steals Snubble from Madam Muchmoney. After realizing the theft Ash and co. tell her that they're not going to travel with her any longer. Madam Muchmoney shows up enraged but after it sees that her Snubble would rather live an active lifestyle rather then constantly smothered with love she decides to let Kris keep it for it's own good. Ash and co. eventually decide to let Kris join them again but tell her that she needs to active her dreams honestly rather then cheating, lying, and stealing. A lesson she eventually learns the hard way after she loses her first four contests all in a row.

    Kris's Flaffy:
    Kris catches a lazy Mareep early in her journey. This Mareep matches wits with her and seems to try to taunt her. Despite it's cute appearence it's tough enough to deal with Marina's training even when she trained harshly. Mareep is very lazy and loafs around. Unlike Marina's other pokemon, it does not fear her. Even though it's pretty aggressive and mean towards Kris it's friendly towards Ash and the team's pokemon. In particular it seems to try to help out the rest of Kris's team when she's harsh towards them. After Kris's change of heart Mareep evolves and becomes friendly towards her.


    Kris's Magby:
    This is the only pokemon Kris catches in Johto after she ends her Monarchy. Magby is what Poliwag used to be. Weak, scared, and young. It really tests Kris's commitment towards becoming a friendlier trainer. Kris doesn't break under pressure and trains Magby to be strong.

    Soul's Marill:
    Soul already has her Marill when Ash and co. meet her. Marill is very energetic just like it's trainer. It's revealed that Soul got it as her starter on her 10th birthday from her parents. Marill is very good at Pokethlon.

    Soul's Aipom:
    Soul's Aipom is much different from the one that Ash would be catching much later in the series. It seems to want to join Kris at first due to it's lust for power however after getting a firsthand taste of Kris's harsh training it decides it would be better fit with Soul. Since Leaf just uses Aipom for the charge rally during it's Pokethlon debut it grows bored with the idea of Pokethlon. However, after it watches Marill in a Pokethlon and realizes that they do indeed contain battles it becomes extremely interested. Aipom becomes a main powerhouse on Soul's team.


    Soul's Girafarig:
    Soul's Girafarig is her main powerhouse in Johto. It's tail literally has a mind of it's own giving Girafarig split personalities.

    Soul's Elekid:
    Continuing the trend of Soul catching pokemon that would be better fit to Kris and Kris catching pokemon that would be better fit to Soul, Soul gets a gruff and somwhat arrogant Elekid. Regardless of it's personality it enjoys being with Soul and is very good at Pokethlon battles.

    Leaf leaves Psyduck with Misty at the end of the Orange Islands arc to train but it returns to the Sevii Isles Grand Festival.

    Leaf's Ninetales:
    There are no contests in the developing Orange Islands yet however Leaf doesn't just sit around while Ash collects badges. She trains her pokemon fiercely for her next set of contests. A firebreather ends up using his fire stone on Vulpix when he sees that it wants to have the strength to save Leaf and Clefairy from Jessie, James, and Meowth. Leaf is surprised, but glad, to see her new Ninetales.

    Leaf's Lapras:
    Leaf's only capture in the Orange Islands occured when she and the others first arrived in the Orange Islands. Ash and co. were fishing for something that could give them a ride through the Orange Islands due to the fact that the Orange Islands doesn't have a ferry service. Leaf ends up catching a Lapras but that didn't end Ash and co's problems. Lapras was disobedient and refused to give them a ride. After some work they eventually talk it into being obedient and it acts as their primary means of transportation through the Orange Islands. It's battle skills remain mostly unknown since it's only battles during this saga are against TR or training with one of Ash's/Leaf's pokemon.

    Sevii Isles

    Leaf's Clefairy:
    No changes. It's comical antics continue.

    Leaf's Ninetales:
    Leaf decides to bring it with her sense she hasn't had an opportunity to use it in a contest since it's evolution.

    Leaf's Lapras:
    In this saga it proves it's strength and becomes Leaf's main powerhouse. It is even used in the battle against Armstrong and his Articuno and ends up defeating them.

    Leaf's Gloom:
    Ash and co. meet a very shy Oddish which burrows into the ground at the sight of people. It eventually gets over it's shyness and evolves into Gloom.

    Leaf's Pichu:
    Randy creates his first egg when he leaves his Ditto at the Sevii Isles breeding center. Randy cares for the egg and it hatches into Pichu. Upon hatching Leaf is the first person Pichu sees and considers it his mother. Pikachu becomes a father figure for the new born Pichu. Pichu quickly adapts to contests and becomes a powerhouse even though it is very young.



    Johto

    Leaf's Bellosom:
    Leaf is continuing her second journey through Kanto as Ash and Randy travel through Johto. As Ash and co. make a stop at a Breeding Center they get a phone call from Leaf on their PokeGear, she is in Saffron City, sight of the new bullet train heading to Goldenrod City in Johto. Ash and co. just happen to be close to Goldenrod so Leaf decides to meet them there. On the way to Goldenrod Ash and co. find out that Jasmine is holding a pokemon contest. Kris and Leaf both decide to enter. It's revealed that Gloom evolved into Bellosom and it wins the Jasmine Cup for Leaf. Leaf departs on the Bullet Train.

    Kris's Togepi:
    Kris gets an egg as her starter pokemon rather then an actual pokemon. This egg comes from her father, Mr Pokemon. Eventually it hatches into a Togepi. The very young Togepi is unable to adapt to Kris's harsh style of training. It needs love and care. Kris even comes close to releasing Togepi for being to weak but Ash and Randy talk her out of it. Kris also gets angry at Togepi for not evolving but ironically doesn't realize that it's her harsh treatment that's keeping it from evolving. Kris eventually calms down, accepts her friend's goody-two-shoe style of training, and turns Togepi into a very good contest pokemon.

    Kris's Ledian:
    Kris catches multiple Ledyba but only keeps one after checking their stats in her pokedex. Like all of Kris's pokemon, Ledyba is indifferent towards the cruel Kris. Due to Kris's cruel ways she loses her first four contests and takes it out on her pokemon. Ledyba eventually evolves much to Kris's enjoyment but is still unable to take down major opponets. It's not until Kris begins bonding with her pokemon that Ledian becomes a powerhouse.

    Kris's Politoed:
    Kris catches a Poliwag which is probably the pokemon she's the harshest towards early in the saga. Poliwag is a very nervous and reserved pokemon which causes Kris to deem it as weak. It's Poliwag's determination that brings Kris to her senses in the first place. Poliwag fights a COTD and continues fighting even though it should have been KOed by then. Poliwag eventually evolves into Poliwhirl and starts to show what a powerhouse it truely is and then it finally evolves to Politoed when Kris forces a King's Rock on it and demands Ash to trade with her temporarily. Politoed becomes so strong that Kris feels bad about evolving it. Kris feels that she's not good enough to train such a strong pokemon and regrets being such a hardass earlier. Politoed assures her that he forgives her and actually becomes a jolly, carefree pokemon now that it knows it can trust it's trainer.

    Kris's Snubble:
    Kris steals Snubble from Madam Muchmoney. After realizing the theft Ash and co. tell her that they're not going to travel with her any longer. Madam Muchmoney shows up enraged but after it sees that her Snubble would rather live an active lifestyle rather then constantly smothered with love she decides to let Kris keep it for it's own good. Ash and co. eventually decide to let Kris join them again but tell her that she needs to active her dreams honestly rather then cheating, lying, and stealing. A lesson she eventually learns the hard way after she loses her first four contests all in a row.

    Kris's Flaffy:
    Kris catches a lazy Mareep early in her journey. This Mareep matches wits with her and seems to try to taunt her. Despite it's cute appearence it's tough enough to deal with Marina's training even when she trained harshly. Mareep is very lazy and loafs around. Unlike Marina's other pokemon, it does not fear her. Even though it's pretty aggressive and mean towards Kris it's friendly towards Ash and the team's pokemon. In particular it seems to try to help out the rest of Kris's team when she's harsh towards them. After Kris's change of heart Mareep evolves and becomes friendly towards her.


    Kris's Magby:
    This is the only pokemon Kris catches in Johto after she ends her Monarchy. Magby is what Poliwag used to be. Weak, scared, and young. It really tests Kris's commitment towards becoming a friendlier trainer. Kris doesn't break under pressure and trains Magby to be strong.

    Soul's Marill:
    Soul already has her Marill when Ash and co. meet her. Marill is very energetic just like it's trainer. It's revealed that Soul got it as her starter on her 10th birthday from her parents. Marill is very good at Pokethlon.

    Soul's Aipom:
    Soul's Aipom is much different from the one that Ash would be catching much later in the series. It seems to want to join Kris at first due to it's lust for power however after getting a firsthand taste of Kris's harsh training it decides it would be better fit with Soul. Since Leaf just uses Aipom for the charge rally during it's Pokethlon debut it grows bored with the idea of Pokethlon. However, after it watches Marill in a Pokethlon and realizes that they do indeed contain battles it becomes extremely interested. Aipom becomes a main powerhouse on Soul's team.


    Soul's Girafarig:
    Soul's Girafarig is her main powerhouse in Johto. It's tail literally has a mind of it's own giving Girafarig split personalities.

    Soul's Elekid:
    Continuing the trend of Soul catching pokemon that would be better fit to Kris and Kris catching pokemon that would be better fit to Soul, Soul gets a gruff and somwhat arrogant Elekid. Regardless of it's personality it enjoys being with Soul and is very good at Pokethlon battles.
    So Kris have a similar personality to Paul from the anime but she still diffrent from him.

    Well a dishonest Paul. I'd try to make all of the girls pretty different from each other.

    Leaf would basically be Misty as a coordinator. And she'd come from a family of successful (and judgemental) coordinators.

    Kris would be a cold hearted cheater. Having more in common with Ash's rival of the time (Silver) then Ash.

    Soul would be a Pokethlon Athlete and would be very similar to Ash. After Kris notices Souls succeeding by playing fair and treating her pokemon with respect she'd eventually come around.


    May would be basically the same way she is in the anime. I'd make her a bit more ditzy though. Her dad would play more of a role. Pushing her towards gyms rather then contests but eventually accepting her choice to do contests.

    And Dawn would be the same too, her rivals would just have more of a role and she'd make a choice to switch to gym battles mid-saga due to her failure at contests and eventually switch back to contests after realizing that gyms aren't her true passion.

    17 Elements Isle

    Kris's Togetic:
    Now that Kris treats her pokemon kindly Togepi would evolve. It would have trouble overcoming it's past with her but after using it's harmony powers (pokedex reference) it'll strengthen it's relationship with Kris and evolve. It'd be very good at contests as a Togetic but would be left with the Mirage Kingdom Guardian and called back for the Grand Festival.

    Kris's Politoed:
    Kris would find it hard to release Politoed after it's grown so strong but she would decide to leave it at an aquarium for it's own good. It would also be called back for the Grand Festival

    Kris's Snubble:
    No changes

    Kris's Magby:
    No changes

    Kris's Misdreavus:
    She'd catch her very first comical pokemon. An obnoxious, prankster Misdreavus. Marina's serious side would come out yet again as she scolds Misdreavus. Misdreavus would become upset and run off but Kris would find it, and comfort it (even though being nice disgusts her). It'd be powerful even though it's comic relief.

    Kris's Minun:
    A marketable Hoenn promoting pokemon. Symbolizing Kris's negative personality. It wouldn't get along with Soul's Plusle at first but opposites would eventually attract and they'd become best friends.

    Soul's Azumarill:
    Marill would evolve but would keep the hyper personality

    Soul's Aipom:
    No changes aside from getting stronger

    Soul's Girafarig:
    No changes

    Soul's Elekid:
    Much like Pikachu at the beginning of Johto, Elekid would overload on electricity and nearly die. After finding out that the light ball won't work on Elekid Ash and co. leave it at a Powerplant to put it's excess energy to good use. It returns for the Athlete's Cup however.

    Soul's Whynaut:
    Soul gets a Whynaut and has to practice extensively. When she first catches it she has no idea how to put it's unique style of battling to use in a Pokethlon. In the end she masters the battling style and Whynaut becomes one of her best pokemon.

    Soul's Plusle:
    See Kris's Minun.


    Pokemon that each character would constantly have out of their pokeball:
    Ash - Pikachu (every saga)
    Leaf - Clefairy (All of her sagas)
    Randy - None
    Team Rocket - Meowth
    Soul - Marill (Johto), Whynaut(17 Elements Isle)
    Kris - Togepi (Johto), Snubble (17 Elements Isle)
    May - Torchic (Early Johto), Munchlax (AG Battle Frontier)
    Dawn - Piplup (All of her sagas)

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    If I were in charge of the anime, here's what I'd have happen in the future:

    -- Have Ash discover girls (his cluelessness has gone on LONG ENOUGH)
    -- Jessie wins two more ribbons and gets to the Grand Festival, though she doesn't win
    -- Meowth finds a way to learn pay day
    -- James brings Chimecho back (and keeps Mime Jr.)
    -- Ash and company (with Dawn) head to Johto for the Battle Frontier, and Ash uses all his Johto starters for at least some of the facilities. Totodile would evolve, and Ash would spend an arc trying to keep it from dancing so much and causing havoc because it's larger now. LOL
    -- Max rejoins the group to start a pokemon journey, and gets ralts
    -- Make some less sucky bad guys than Team Galactic for the next region after Sinnoh/Johto
    -- Age the characters a few years after Sinnoh/Johto and start some fresh stories.

    I'll try and think of a few more things.

    That´s a cool thread!
    Let me see....

    If I was in charge, then...


    1st! Gible could never be caught, or if must be, at least insere some intelligence!
    2nd! Buizel evolves.
    3rd! Team Rocket could get more spotlight and less bad luck.
    4th! Misty's return!
    5th! Dawn failing the next contest for the 3rd time in a raw and Jessie win it. Then a competition between them for the 5th ribbon!
    6th! Dawn's piplup back to the pokeball!
    7th! Dawn's piplup evolves!
    8th! New pokémon to Brock!

    What should continues in the anime:

    1st! Draco Meteor keep falling on piplup, ahahahahaha!!! (yeah, I hate that stupid penguin. Who likes it anyway?)

    A lot of people might hate me for saying this, but I would cut some of Team Rocket's time and put Paul in more. Team Rocket's funny and all, but it gets so predictable and unfun to watch seeing the same motto, the same giant robot machines, the same balloon, and the same, "We're blasting off again" thing. I'm not saying take them out of the show, but just not in every episode. I also think when Paul shows up, things get more intersting and unpredictable.

    First ash would get butterfree back and finally get pidgeot back (he promised). Also I would give Dawn a leafeon in contrast to Glaceon. Oh and Ash would age actually.

    - Back to the Kanto music.
    - Give Ash Pidgeot and Primeape back as he promised.
    - Give Team Rocket Arbok and Weezing back.
    - Make better teams for the characters.
    - Less fillers. (Waaayy too many.)
    - Make Ash evolve a water type.
    - Make Gary a selfish trainer again.
    - Give AJ an appearance (they promised they'd meet again.)
    - Evolve Pikachu (yes, I went that far.)

    If I was in charge, I would do the following things:

    - Show Holiday In Acapulco, Legend Of Dratini and the Ice Cave uncut
    - Cut down on censorship and show a lot of the cut and edited scenes especially in the early episodes
    - Make more special Chronicles episodes
    - Bring back Arbok and Weezing
    - Bring back Primeape and Pidgeot
    - Make Ash more smarter and less forgetful
    - Bring Misty back
    - Have some more darker episodes like the Red Gyarados arc, Team Galactic episodes, etc
    - If possible, I would make it so the Pokedex isn't always out of date and have it completely up to date from the beginning
    - No episodes what become nonsensical after new generations like baby Pikachu, the Pokedex saying only 3 evolved forms of Eevee, etc

    I wrote this before on the Misty Club months ago:

    I for one think the show is getting a bit stale and they need to do some serious overhaulin' with this whole "Pokemon Master" dream. So, my lovely idea is the show ends in two or three seasons but goes out with a bang. They can end this season with Ash in the Sinnoh League, then a season for the Johto Frontier. But then, they have the most awesome long final season. In said season all of the main characters will be brought back, as well as all of the gangs pokemon. To solve the whole "Pokemon Master" ordeal there will be one tournament held for every trainer. It can be called "Master Cup" or something and anyone can sign up but they have to have a butt load of pokemon. The more you've done the higher seed you get, so Champions and Elite Four are the highest. Followed by Gym leaders, Frontier Brains and trainers who did well in leagues, then there would be others then beginners. This is a perfect place for Ash to bring back his classics and the beginning of the season could be spent with him finding Butterfree, Pidgeot etc. Also, Misty could then be in the whole season, and compete as well as Brock if he grows a pair and Morrison, Tyson, Gary, Ritchie, Max?, Jimmy? yada yada yada. There can also be a tournament for the best coordinators where Dawn, May, Nando, Drew and everyone else can compete. Both would be held in the same area. This is the Olympics of pokemon people. It would be awesome. Its basically my dream ending and also my personal favorite way of bringing Misty back because honestly I want to see how good she got not her walking around with Azurill like in the AG.
