Hoenn Ash was best balanced in my opinion. He could still make you laugh, but he was really looking like a pro trainer with his funny but more mature personality. Not to mention we got to see his mentor role with May and Max which not only helped them but it really boost his character and really showed how he changed from his rookie Kanto days. I loved Hoenn Ash. He really was great and I miss this version of Ash.
Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham! Sereevee or Serevee equals Serena+Eevee!
