I think you're underestimating the intelligence level of the target demographic. Alot of cartoons have more complicated plots that deal with serious subject matter. And kids get along fine with it.

So in answer to the original question, the short version is no. I don't think it would suffer. Pokemon is one of the most successful franchises in existence. So I imagine that as long as the characters are still catching Pokemon and battling, the series should be pretty safe.
