Why does everyone care about the off screen, nonsense.

It's also not even implied to be happening anyway. For all we know the Zorua episode was the last time Ash had on hand even including off screen stuff.
Dax is right though, sure they can evolve Swadloon for the hell of it, but it doesn't mean anything if we don't see the Pokemon. Do you people really hate Ash's Pokemon. Because all I'm seeing is people trying to justify why we aren't seeing Ash's Pokemon.

Well Excuse us for actually caring about the Pokemon and actually WANT to see them doing something.
Why is that such a difficult concept to understand? That we ACTUALLY want to see them, and we don't like it when they are constantly ignored for something that we really don't need to see on constant basis but are stuck because apparently they sell more plushies than the other guys.
Honestly people stop trying to defend the writers. It's just bad writing when we haven't seen Ash's Swadloon in 15 weeks or more. Hell the episode that Swadloon was last seen, was dubbed and aired last week and it was only a cameo appearance.
I'm starting to wonder if any of you actually find faults in the show.
And what if they already had those attacks, we just never saw them. Because I kind of find it hard to believe that the writers would skip learning moves like that.

There's no problem with Swadloon evolving. Oh wait there is. I actually wanted to see Swadloon battling. I mean if it just comes down to it evolving against Clay, what's the point?
So I don't see a problem in Swadloon evolving, apart from it's usual attitude. And I can't wait until it does(Assuming it actually will), because then it will have a better expression, I hope. I don't want to see Swadloon's expression on a Leavanny.
If Swadloon wasn't going to do a damn thing for 20 episodes until the episode it evolved, why not evolve it 20 episodes prior to the episode it does actually evolve in.
I know I can't expect the writers to constantly use all the Pokemon episode after episode. But why can't there more balance. I mean for every 3 episodes the starters and Pikachu are shoved down our throat, can a reserve take some screen time in the 4th episode.
I mean looking at the appearance, I like it when at MOST the Pokemon appearances were about 6-8 episodes from their last.
Swadloon is now at 15 episode gap. That's WAY TOO long. I don't care if it gets a measly 2 second cameo appearance. Although that would probably piss me off, because that would just be teasing. But it's not too hard for the writers to say "Nah let's not use Pikachu, Oshawott, Tepig, and Snivy, let's use Swadloon instead, because I'm sure we need to see it use attacks since the last time it battled was over 20 episodes ago against Burgh."
I mean Palpitoad gets better screen time than Swadloon. Palpitoad has at least 3 battles under its belt, and at least beats a Pokemon before being knocked out. It would be nice to see Swadloon be used in a battle capacity.
I mean take Ash vs Alder for a moment. The battle wasn't going to even be a real battle in the first place because Alder fell asleep. Are you telling me that Ash choosing Pikachu was SO necessary because Pikachu is Ash's Ace in the hole? I mean they know the outcome, if the battle meant jack, they could've easily just had Ash use Tranquill or even Swadloon. Hell I think Roggenrola would've been an okay choice.
The writers decision just annoy me. I mean I know they don't give a damn about balance, but do they want to add laziness to their repertoire. Especially given the fact that Pikachu beat Elesa two episodes ago.
See if I wanted a character with multiple Pokemon. I would at least have each Pokemon battle at least four times before evolving. Two times for quick evolutions. And maybe at least one win before evolving. I mean FACT: Do you realize that in their most BASE stage none of Ash's bird Pokemon ever got a win before evolving?
Pidgeotto doesn't count because it was caught evolved, and Noctowl doesn't count for the same reason.
Taillow, Starly and Pidove, did not get a single trainer battle win before evolving. So far the only one who has come close is Pidove, and that's only because of Snivy. And what makes it sad is Pidove and Starly evolved quickly, so maybe you can excuse them. But Taillow of all Pokemon lasted at least 60 episodes, and it got screwed over until it evolved.
I know the writers don't give a damn, but is it too much to ask at the VERY least each Pokemon gets 2 trainer battles before evolving. If not at least 1. Because if Ash's Roggenrola is slated to evolve soon, it's not even going to get a single battle before evolving. Though it might evolve during a battle. Similar to Sewaddle only without the win.
Okay I'm done ranting.
