    Brock wouldn't be cast aside as merely an advisor and/or domestic servant and actually get some development time

    Brock's Pokemon would evolve or he'd get new ones along with his old ones. I miss the days when he carried like, 5 pokemon on hand.

    Ash would've gotten an Eevee

    Dawn wouldn't be so forcefully and obviously put into the spotlight

    Dawn would have more interesting rivals that appeared often (Only Zoey frequently appears, but she's not very antagonistic.... Kenny and Nando are nice characters in my opinion but they too are neither antagonistic nor frequently appearing, Ursula is the only antagonistic one but only recently she became recurring)

    More of Dawn's Pokemon would evolve or she'd catch more variety.

    Ash would rotate his pokemon more often.... like, he'd catch a fair amount of new ones but also travel with maybe one or two of his old ones at a time. Seriously, I hate how it's almost like he's forgotten them, he doesn't even MENTION them in the anime unless he suddenly decides he wants to put them in his party, like how he did with his Bulbasaur after May got hers.

    Totodile would evolve at least once.

    They'd make properly developed counterparts for game characters that didn't get much of a role or none at all, like Brendan, Lucas, Silver (debatable since Paul is kind of a Silver counterpart in terms of personality, though in my opinion they're still very different characters), Gold, Kris, Leaf, etc.

    Ash and gang would run into recurring characters more often instead of making hundreds of characters-of-the-day.

    Tracey and Delia wouldn't only appear when Ash goes home and Misty, May, Max, Gary, wouldn't only become "past news". Seriously, is a random occasional appearance more frequent than every 100 episodes or so too much to ask?

    On the same note, other recurring characters wouldn't have been completely forgotten either.

    James would have more of a role.... Jessie got contests, why can't he have something too? I still find it ironic that he won that contest on his first try... He's proven that he's actually quite skilled at some things, couldn't the writers find something for him to do?

    Less focus on simply showcasing new Pokemon and/or pokemon in a new game (I love Gen II pokemon and loved the Johto fest episode, but they went a bit overboard on the Gen II pokemon), more focus on characters and plotlines.

    Team Rocket actually goes through a threatening phase..... they're currently the only criminal organization in the Pokemon world not to go through some major devastating project loss unless you count Mewtwo which happened not only ages ago but in a movie. Okay, yeah, that would mean the loss of purpose for the Trio and Butch/Cassidy, but we still haven't really seen what Giovanni can do personally.

    Janine would've gotten an appearance

    Older Gym leaders would make an occasional appearance, wed get more substance in understanding the importance and role of the Elite Four and/or Champions.

    More information on pokemon breeding in the anime world, for the most part we still only make inferences in the anime world. Sure, that may be enough, but I personally find it an important part of the pokemon world that just isn't touched upon enough in the anime.

    There'd be SOME semblance to the passage of time. Ash doesn't seem to have aged but he clearly has, considering that in a short he said "it's been a year since he'd met Pikachu" and he's travelled with TWO girls that turned 10 after he did.

    Ash's father. We know he exists, but there could at least be SOME more of an indication of what what the hell he's doing.

    The GS ball. Yeah, they said the plot was discarded because of Pokemon 4ever, but Celebi has already been mentioned and featured in non-movie stuff, so couldn't they just still use that plotline? I know they'd have to travel back to Johto in order to but still...

    Pokeballs other than the standard ones would make an actual appearance, rather than just be cameos. It's been ages since Apricorn balls showed up.

    There'd be some sort of definite reason as to why Ash seemingly has a connection with Ho-oh. That plotline has been going on since episode 1!

    Basically....... the anime would be less dominated by filler and focus more on character and plot development rather than game promotion. Already created characters would have more of a spotlight instead of being forgotten and replaced by bland, deliberately forgettable and constantly dished out characters of the day, and the Pokemon would also get their share of development too. My biggest pet peeves about the anime is how older characters and Pokemon alike just get pushed to the side like rag dolls. That shouldn't happen! In my opinion a good trainer should never forget about their Pokemon! No matter how long ago they were caught. And sure, it's a given that if you're gonna go on a journey as a trainer you'd meet a whole ton of different people along the way, but do the writers have to make Ash and gang meet over 50 something people and SHOW US before the plot is moved forward? And then do they have to do the same thing OVER and OVER again? There's a reason that pretty much the only episodes I watch are ones where a recurring character reappears or if there is character/plot development.

    I sometimes think that if they were gonna shove away all the old stuff, they should've just stopped the "Ash" arc when Johto ended and continued with a new trainer.... you know? Make seasons, like how Digimon did, except everything takes place in the same universe, and perhaps make the older characters make cameos just so we know the old characters are still going on in their lives. That way less people would feel like our old favorites were completely forgotten and the writers would actually have a good excuse for not bringing back an older character.

    *sigh* sometimes I wish Pokemon Special/Adventures were animated. Okay, yeah, some really strange things happened in Special and Special in its own way bended the Pokemon universe at its own convenience, but at least things are more balanced out in Special.

    Two problems with that:

    a) If Ash always kept the same Pokemon every saga, everyone would complain. In case you haven't noticed, Ash started using his old Pokemon again in the Battle Frontier arc after Hoenn ended. And from the looks of the new opening, old Pokemon will be used again in DP.

    His only old Pokemon that get shafted are his Johto team, due to their unpopularity and how disliked they were years back.

    b) The show now simply has too many major characters. If you factor in all the mains, plus every single major rival for Ash/May/Dawn...there is a crapload of characters. Way too many to get focus all in the same arc.

    The older characters all had their older arcs. It's not like they didn't get their proper screentime back then.

    1. I *know* Ash started using his older pokemon again in Battle Frontier, and I was indeed very happy when I saw the new opening included his older Pokemon. HOWEVER, I don't see why he can't even occasionally rotate some of them out. And I don't mean keeping the same old ones over and over again, I mean, rotating them ALL. He certainly has enough pokemon to create various combinations and I really don't see the problem in letting his old ones meet his new ones sooner. He and his friends are traveling to a Pokemon center at least every few episodes, surely it's not a huge deal to just transfer one or two out for a few days! Not to mention they could be helpful to him too. Yeah, I'm aware of that mentality of his to use only the pokemon in that region, but he really didn't seem to have a problem when he suddenly decided to let his Bulbasaur meet May's, or even in the future when he decides to use his older pokemon in the Sinnoh league.

    2. There are plenty other shows out there that have numerous important characters that still get to play their part. I understand its unreasonable for the characters that have split from the gang to pursue their own goals to constantly reappear or get some major focus, but even some form of communication might be nice, at least to know they aren't forgotten. I remember being happy when Gary ended up in Sinnoh because it at least gave him the chance to sometimes meet up with Ash. Is he showing up often? No, but at least he IS.

    I guess my logic is "Why make more when you can improve what you've already got?". Yes, older characters had their run and screentime, but the thing is that Ash remains, and its almost as if he casts off his old friends when he tires of them, like how a person gets a new phone just because it has a new feature even if his old one works perfectly fine. Obviously that is NOT true, since May and Misty had definite reasons for leaving and Ash HASN'T forgotten them, but it kind of also makes me think that the writers are expecting us to forget the older older ones, and considering the huge fanbases that the older characters command that isn't the case. I just can't help the feeling that older characters still have their use in the story.

    The anime producers cater first to the new fans and then to the old, hence why sometimes I just wish that they would end each arc with its own set of characters and start anew, like how Digimon made their seasons, except of course with Pokemon always remaining in the same universe. That way, new characters can be created and developed and it leaves a possibility for old-character cameos or guest appearances without leaving old fans constantly hoping for their favorites to show up.

    You gotta remember the main goal of the anime is to promote the games. They're not going to shaft the current Generation's pokemon in favor of ones that already had plenty of screentime. That's the main reason the Johto team is currently the worse handled.


    That being said though, I don't see why they can't handle giving Ash more than 5 pokemon per region correctly. Why did Gliscor have to be released, likely to never be seen again, in favor of Gible for example?

    This is how I'd set up sagas.

    Main saga - would focus on the first two games. Ash and co. would travel around with pokemon from that region.

    "Filler" sagas - Would build upon the saga before it. Ash and co. would still travel around with pokemon from the current Generation. A few promotional pokemon from the next Generation may be caught though.


    Remake sagas - Sagas for FRLG and HGSS (and whatever other remakes that are created). Ash would use a variety of reserves but in particular he would use pokemon from the Generation which is being remade. Many of these pokemon would become a part of his main traveling team once again and might even evolve if they didn't back in their home region's saga. The story would be a combination of the sidegames quests (Pokemon Ranger, the Orre Region games, etc.) and anime-only material.


    My goal would be to make all of the characters memorable. The human characters would all have interesting stories and personalities (even the minor ones) and the main characters pokemon would all have memorable battles and personalities.

    If I was in charge...

    Kanto:

    Ash:

    On hand:

    Pikachu - Starter. Basically the same as in the Anime right now. Would NOT be used against Brock. Would be used against Misty in her gym.

    Pidgeot - Caught as a Pidgey. First Pokemon Ash caught. Quickly evolved after weakening a Caterpie that Ash caught. Evolved again when Ash fought Erika's Gloom. Left to defend some Pidgey. Ash still checks on it from time to
    time.

    Butterfree - Caught as a Caterpie weakened by Pidgey. Evolved after defending another Caterpie from a Spearow. Metapod was used in the battle against Brock. After Pidgeotto fainted against Onix after being weakened by Geodude, Metapod was sent out and used Tackle. After using String Shot on Onix, Onix crushed Metapod's cocoon. Metapod evolved into Butterfree. Butterfree used Confusion to beat Onix. After the battle with Misty, Butterfree was released to mate with that Pink Butterfree. Ash saw it again after he lost in the Pokemon League.


    Squirtle - After defeating Misty, Ash decided to go to Nugget Bridge. When he won, he was about to get a Nugget. But then, a Squirtle stole the Nugget. Ash chased the Squirtle. He found it at Bill's house. Bill told Ash that Squirtle appear around Cerulean City from time to time. Ash used Pikachu to catch Squirtle. It still has the same personality as in the real Anime.

    Bulbasaur - On the way to Vermillion City, Ash and friends found an injured Bulbasaur. Luckily, Brock had a few Potions. They healed the Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur followed them around for two episodes before showing itself to thank Ash and Brock. Ash then asked Bulbasaur if it wanted to be his Pokemon. Bulbasaur agreed, and it was caught.

    Charizard - In Vermillion City, Ash and friends saw Gary in the Pokemon Center. They saw that Gary had released a Charmander because it was too weak. It followed the same story as the Anime right now. Then, as Ash was fighting Sabrina, it evolved while fighting Abra. Charmeleon was still defeated. It then started being disobedient to Ash. After Ash lost against Blaine, he decided to train Charmeleon. Charmeleon battled Blaine on his own. He got severely beaten. Ash took Charizard to the Pokemon Center. When Charizard woke up, he was healed. When Ash rematched Blaine, Charizard listened to Ash.

    The rest later.

When Charizard woke up, he was healed. When Ash rematched Blaine, Charizard listened to Ash.

    Snorlax - Caught by Ash on Route 16 just outside of Celadon City. The Poke Flute is used when Snorlax gets cranky. The music calms him down. He is a power house of Ash's team.

    Lapras - Given to Ash in Silph Co. after he made Casssidy, Butch, and Giovanni leave. When Ash and friends need to get over water. They use Lapras. She was very useful in the Cinnabar Island Gym.

    Oaked:

    Marowak - Everyone seems to like this. Cubone followed Ash after Ash defeated the Rocket Grunts that killed the Cubone's mother. Cubone then asked Ash to catch it. He did, and Cubone was powerful. Cubone evolved in the battle against Blaine's Arcanine.

    Muk - The same as the anime, except caught as a Grimer. Evolved against Team Rocket's Arbok.

    Tauros - Same as the anime, except he only has one. He only caught one, then the time ran out.

    Kingler - Same as the anime.

    Released:

    Pidgeot - Caught as a Pidgey. First Pokemon Ash caught. Quickly evolved after weakening a Caterpie that Ash caught. Evolved again when Ash fought Erika's Gloom. Left to defend some Pidgey. Ash still checks on it from time to
    time.

    Butterfree - Caught as a Caterpie weakened by Pidgey. Evolved after defending another Caterpie from a Spearow. Metapod was used in the battle against Brock.

    I'd turn Ash into a true Pokémon Master. Whenever he loses to someone like Paul he will take the loss like a man instead of a little kid.

    If I were Ash, I'd actually remember everything I learned each region, like not use Seismic Toss on a Ghost type, or use a Water move on Infernape, you know, the stupid mistakes that Ash knew about, but forgot entirely

    I would stop trying to polish a turd and give up on it. Or wrap up Sinnoh and start with a new protagonist then gear the whole show towards an older audience.

    Make pokemon a bit darker you know?

    I would kick Dawn out over the show because she steals the show from Ash and the contests drag on a little bit to much.
    Make ash have a good rival not like Barry or Paul but bring back Gary.
    Ash would catch new pokemon not befriend them.
    Brock would have more of a part in the show.
    Ash would lose like a man not a little kid.
    Ash would get his Johto voice back.
    Ash would have a better group of pokemon his groups fine it could use some tweaking though.

    Throwing the advertisement aspect out, since that's really the number one thing that hurts this show:

    -The series would be significantly shorter. I'd probably clip a few episodes here and there from the Kanto stuff, but Johto through now would pretty much be rewritten to fit a more concise scope, and not "stretch it out for a few years until new games." I would try to keep everything to about 50 or 60 episodes a region.
    -Ash would travel alone, making him and Team Rocket the main human characters. This way, Ash's team has time to grow, since they're the only things he'll interact with most of the time, and those poor fecks who belong to Misty, Brock, and the others don't have to bore us with their empty shells of personalities.
    -The player characters of the video games, I would try to put in movies.

    I'm one of those, who believe everything happens for a reason. Had Ash woken up early, he still would have not got that Squirtle (apparently that was Ash's pick), so he'd choose Charmander instead (based on the rival having the type advantage by default). Had they not go to Hophophop Town, there's be no Psyduck, plus one boring series. Had Ash not interfered with Team Rocket's dynamite fuse at Grampa Canyon, there would still be a bunch of p***ed off Dinosaurs.

    The list goes on... had Ash have known about Ghost types being immune to Fighting move, Ash would have had a better match with Brandon... though the whole thing woulda been Charizard vs Frontier team 7.

    though the whole thing woulda been Charizard vs Frontier team 7
    The battle was extremely close and Charizard was noticably tired. Had Dusclops lost, Ninjask or Solrock would have just finished Charizard off. Charizard gets way too much credit. There was no was he would have swept Brandon, mistake from Ash or not.


    Anyway, I'd go all out with the teams. And sense I've been adding to this list little by little for a while now, I'll just copy and paste the whole thing. Spoiler tags included due to length. Keep in mind there would be massive team rotation and any released pokemon would return. The only reason I'd keep pokemon releases a feature of the anime is to give certain pokemon some final development.


    Kanto:
    Rookie trainer Ash Ketchum travels with Leaf, a coordinator, Randy, a breeder, and Kai, a trainer who wants to perfectly EV train his pokemon before starting his badge quest. His goal is to earn the 8 Kanto badges, win the Kanto League, and challenge the Elite 4.

        Spoiler:



    Orange Islands:

    Sevii Isles:

    And that'd be the first saga.

    I would have ash remember that normal and fighting moves do not work on ghosts. Seriously how many times has he learned that?

    I Haven't reed the entire thread but a lot of the stuff here is, "I'm gonna use all of the stuff that I know is interesting and works in the shows currently and retroactively go back into the past and change things."

    If I personally was a writer of the pokemon anime in the early days and was limited to the information about pokemon I had back then. I guess the anime would've turned out a lot like the current manga with a few minor changes, minor compared to what alot of people on this thread proposed I guess.

    Well since the anime was aimed at a younger audience then the manga, I guess the anime might have ended up similar to the way it has already happened and it makes me wonder if the writers in the beginning had actually played and understood the games before creating the script for the anime.

    I would've better explain the biggest questions plaguing this anime instead of leaving them unexplained for many years, eg - Butterfree Primape, Pigeot, Genders, a better measure of pikachu's power etc... but I'll still leave some mystery or create new one every time one mystery is revealed, all good shows need some mysteries.

    I guess there's the reality of having to end the show, a writer would not have expected Pokemon to be as popular or successful as it is/was. You'd have to kind of balance having the series leading towards a conclusive ending while at the same time keeping the show open for continuation, in case the show stays popular.

    The show ending up the way it currently is, I guess it wasn't so bad, it was and currently is an enjoyable ride, it could've been better but with the limitations, I've described and some I can't currently think of, it's still fairly decent, although there are some boring bits I would've improved.

    I would've continued Pokemon Chronicles, making a monthly series or something like that, a new pokemon chronicles every month, showing what's happened to the non-main cast (Misty, Richie, Casey, Harrison, Gary, May, Morrison, Tyson... etc) and Ash's Oaked or released pokemon and if there's been any meetings between them.

    An Example might be something like, Tyson meeting Ash's Charizard during his post league training in Jhoto in preperation against the Elite 4 or Champions League and questioning why didn't Ash use such a Strong pokemon against him during the Hoenn League and ends up wondering how things would've turned out if Ash became the Champion and if he really deserved the right to challenge the Elite 4 or compete in the Champions league if Ash had been holding back on him but quickly getting over it with his pokemon's support and maybe a short quick dual with Ash's Charizard showing his skills as a pokemon training, and that he defeated Ash because he was the better pokemon trainer that day, not because Ash's pokemon were weak.

    I am also guilty of What Ash did in his battle against, Brendon/Jindai, I was thinking "this is the perfect opportunity to use Seimic Toss and them finding out oh **** that pokemon was a Ghost type, Ash was caught up in heat of battle and forgot, some of us are guilty of that but normally you would expect a experienced trainer like Ash to know.

    I Guess there's no excuse to use Quick Attack on Agatha's Gengar for example.

    All I am going to say is that if I was in charge of the anime, Id make it more like Pkmn Special, by this I don't mean a replica of it, but where it would take itself alot more serious. Also would have the art style upgraded slightly, not a big upgrade, but one that doesn't make it look like it was drawn in paint half the time.

    ...

    The Anime sucks. There, got that off my chest.

    Been a while since I posted here. I just have one thing I would've done differently.

    I would've resolved the whole Thunderstone issue by having Jessie get an Eevee and evolve it into Jolteon. Then, she would tout it as Team Rocket's defense against Electric attacks for a few episodes and go back to using Seviper when Ash got wise to Jolteon's attack patterns. Or did I say that already? Ah well.

    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.

    If I were in charge, after Sinnoh, I would have Ash go back to Kanto. Since he lost the Indigo League, I want to see him challenge the Kanto gym leaders again and battle all of his rivals like Ritchie, Harrison, Morrison, Paul, Barry, and even Conway. I would also have Dawn leave. Not that I don't like her, she's great, but I would bring Misty back. Dawn can travel with Kenny and Zoey. Ash, Misty, and Brock would be traveling through Kanto again. I would like to see the show go back to its roots but without rehashing everything. They can still change it up. I also want to see Giovanni and Team Rocket rise to power again. No more Aqua, Magma, or Galactic.

    Ash's Team: Charizard, Pidgeot, Pikachu, Infernape, Torterra, Lapras

    Misty's Team: Gyarados, Psyduck, Togetic, Staryu, Starmie, Goldeen

    Brock's Team: Steelix, Geodude, Sudowoodo, Croagunk, Foretress, Crobat
