It could have gave Ash good character development and maybe at the end of the series, Ash would have to battle that Pokemon who is now loyal to Giovanni.
    It'd work if it had a payoff and maybe a happy ending with the experience actually getting Ash to grow even a little.

    I agree but I don't think this is the league I want him to win. BW all together is just ugh when it comes to battle plots. If the battles suck in this league and he wins, I'll be happy but I would feel that something is missing.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Yeah, Sinnoh would've been a better point for him to at least face Cynthia (AT LEAST) but we all know how that played out, don't we?

    I find it a bit frustrating when Ash always gives his pokemon to oak at the start of every new region(for the most part). I know he might be a bit over-powered if he kept them all, and I also know the point is for him to have a fresh start; but it wouldn't hurt to give the new regions a taste of kanto/johto/etc. like heracross/muk/snorlax etc. They come back and make an appearance every now and then, but I would like to see at least one of them(besides pikachu of course) remain constant. I think that would be pretty cool.

    Oh boy, how long have you got?

    Pidgeotto getting shafted in the kanto gyms, particularly vs Erika

    Ash's release of Pidgeot - I know he didn't need a flying type in the OL but he should have kept (and Oak'd) it and maybe used it vs Drake

    Ash's release of Primeape - He should've been allowed to call upon it when needed, like Charizard.

    Lack of development for the johto starters (the fact that only one evolved really annoyed me) coupled with these underdeveloped pokemon not even being given a chance to shine at the Hoenn league.

    Ash not winning the sinnoh league

    Gible not evolving and/or being taken to unova

    (my list would be longer but you guys covered most of the main points :P)

    There are only 2 things you can do with a tournament plot:
    1) The main character wins, the audience experiences elation, etc. Unfortunately, this can be predictable; we usually expect the main character to win, so this ending may have less emotional impact.
    2) The main character looses, the audiences is sad, but that's not always bad. This end isn't expected, so it seems fresh, and can create a greater emotional impact. It worked for Rocky, it worked for the first league, but they've done it too much. It's no longer fresh, it's just another disappointment.

    I seriously think that the lack of character development must be noted as a rather infuriating frustration.

    By now, my only problem it's Ash being a completly boring and unidimensional character. He haven't notable quirks as his other companions, almost no brainer (mainly outside battles) and his constant "YAY" character. It became boring since he never retains his knowledge and can't do amazing stuff not related to pokemon (yeah, Pokemon is his life, but, some other abilities would be cool).

    - He meets a creepy older gentleman* who will follow him around and do the things Ash apparently is either not smart enough to do, or expects that someone will it for him.

    http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...from-the-Anime <- There's already a thread for whining in the poll section.

    But just for the sake of adding to my post count, here's my list.

    -Ash still being the main character, he should have become a pokemon master a while ago
    -Ash releasing his pokemon for little to no reason
    -Brock staying way too long and becoming dull
    -A certain Dragon Buster being introduced. >_<

    The "no bashing" rule is stupid anyway.

    - Ash leaving potential powerhouses with so much potential at oak's lab. (gible)
    - Pikachu with its reset, it is just rediculous.
    - Brock changing his goal and never getting with a girl in the end, like lucy, that'd have been nice.
    - Misty has pretty much been forgotten aparently
    - team rocket-trio as a whole got frustrating at some point, but i'm glad that changed
    - dropping the whole GS-ball & celibi-story and pretending it didn't exist.
    - Not evolving some pokemon becasue of some shitty marketing-purposes as if they don't make a ****-load of money allready just angers me.

    Most frustrating moment? Actually many, but for example in the current B/W saga I mostly dislike the attitude the writters gave to Iris. What I mean is that they make her as an annoying person who cares more for her Pokemon than his friends. Also, I think they give her too much protagonism, even if in this way they planning on let know that girls can become Pokemon masters too, but if so they should have started the saga with her & not with Ash as a protagonist. By the same I think Ash has gotten weaker & most likely he gonna lose the Pokemon League again. And something is probable, that Iris might become the champion in a way to follow the video game.

    The transition to BW and resetting Ash is really my only issue

    I'm irked when game characters and plots aren't included. We've lost Silver, Wally, Cheren, N... all of which would have added to their respective sagas.

    - Dawn and Invincible Zoey
    - Iris being annoying . And getting Dragonite suddenly. She should've trained it from a tender little Dratini, like a REAL dragon master
    - The huge bin: May, Misty, Tracey, Brock and Dawn. I can't wait for Iris to drop into the bin. I want Cilan to stay.
    - Cilan's Stunkfish. Man it was a 'joke' that lost so many times ._.
    - Ash getting stupid in Unova. In Sinnoh, he was great with the counter-shield against Fantina strategy. And for Elesa's gym, his strategy was "kill all with Palpitoad. Grab a random pokemon if he dies. Oh you need to bond, ok go overused pikachu"
    - Overused Pikachu, nuff said.
    - Ash's reserve not getting screentime: Leavanny, Boldore, Palpitoad
    - Bad writing in Unova. 0% Strategy / Last minute strategy. Lenora's was okay, but like I said, Elesa's suck.

    Most of it is directed to the BW. I feel that Pokemon's quality really dropped in BW. And before anyone starts telling me I'm a DP Stan. Yes, I am, so sue me. It's just how stupid Ash is in Unova BW compared to Sinnoh DP. -,-

    Jackpot! I can name many that I don't like:

    * Aipom/Buizel trade : I wanted Ash to have Buizel, but I didn't want Ash to lose Aipom.
    * Ash being so darn stupid at times (like in BW), though I'm not saying I like Iris' stupid "You're such a kid!" catchphrase
    * Ash's Pikachu losing to a MEOWTH!
    * Ash unable to defeat Jessie's lame Woobat
    * Ash abandoning Primeape, even though Primeape clearly didn't want to go
    * Stephan unfairly defeating Ash in the Bell of Wishes Festival
    * The Petalburg City townspeople booing Ash and calling him a brat in "A Double Dilemma!"
    * When Misty made Ash get rid of Charizard because Charizard made him unbeatable
    * Dawn and Iris becoming BFF's and teasing Ash

    I'm sure there are plenty more than this, but this is a forum, not an essay.

    Ash trading Butterfree to that Rhet Butler wannabe on the S.S. Anne.

    Butterfree leaving.

    Besides the TR vs TP two parter being postponed and everything related to it?

    Misty releasing Togetic (I think those 2 episodes were just bad in general)
    The death of Hunter J (She definitely should have had another exit. 2 future sight attacks from Uxie and Mesprit destroying her airship and killing her and her whole crew? Get the hell outta here man)
    Ash losing to Tobias (The DP saga would have been perfect for Ash to win the league and participate in the champion's league)

    Same here. That scene just seemed so... strange. J deserved a better exit as a villain.

    Would having her ship blown up by a roar of time/spacial rend been better?
