    Pretty much every anime follows this pacing ever since a long time ago, dude.

    I am searching for the following Pokemon
    (Modest), (Modest), (Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Jolly/Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Modest), (Jolly/Adamant)

    I can provide you with the following Pokemon…
    (Timid), (Jolly), (Timid), (Rash), (Bold), (Careful), (Relaxed with Seismic Toss).

    I’m also offering a legit Shiny Foongus. Looking for a good natured shiny in return!

    At least it's far better than when the U.S. used to be a year behind. I can remember seeing the episode pictures for May and Max from Japan when Ash was still navigating the Whirl Islands in the U.S.

    For me some of the most frustrating moments are when people or pokemon get things that they don't deserve.
    Obviously this includes Ash's Indigo League badges.
    Iris getting Dragonite. She was meant to be a dragon specialist. The writers failed to do anything about this for ages and then just lumped her with a Dragonite, a pokemon previously reserved for strong trainers like Lance, Prof Oak, and Drake of the Orange League - you know, people who have earned the right to own one.
    Oshawott getting Hydro Pump. Previously this move was reserved for either fully evolved water types (Gary's Blastoise, Barry's Empoleon, Misty's Gyarados etc) or a pokemon that had earned the right to have the move, like, I think we can all agree, Ash's Squirtle did. Oshawott did not.

    But more frustrating was the continual dumping of previous generation starters on the female companions. Why did May get Bulbasaur and Squirtle? The generation that she was in indroduced the grass types Tropius, Breloom, and Nuzleaf, which she could have chosen from, and still gave her the option of getting an Oddish and evolving it to either Vileplume or Bellossom. And for water she could have had Milotic, or Gorebyss, or Sealeo or Luvdisc, or even Lanturn. But instead the writers fell back and shoved in two old favourites - Bulbasaur and Squirtle.
    And then there is Dawn and Cyndaquil. I know that there were few fire types in Sinnoh, but she shoulf have had Ponyta, no doubt about it. It practically had her name on it. Instead tehy gave her Cyndaquil and you know the worst thing? Every move ever used by Dawn's Quilava is one that Ash's has used in the past - Flamethrower, Flame Wheel, Swift, Smokescreen, Eruption. At least give them different moves! That Ash's one knows Aerial Ace is the only difference between them.

    There are many things wrong with it, but I think they screwed it up in different dimensions. They're trying to keep it a kodomo-themed anime, especially when they made Satoshi younger than he looked in BW (compared to AG/DP) and once again, the memory capability of a goldfish as he forgets his previous tactics (Counter Shield) and uses his pokedex on even pokemon in the previous generations.

    At least Hoenn and Sinnoh were enjoyable (but that may be because I liked Hikari and Haruka more), even if they had their flaws. Unova is just beyond ridiculous and very disappointing. Not even N, Hikari, the good voice actors (Japanese that is) or even Team Rocket can fix it, and I think Hikari's appearance was for the most part lackluster because of the rushed pacing. Sure Hoenn and Sinnoh had some Ash regressions, but not as dreadfully horrible as Unova. Sinnoh Ash was an improvement over Hoenn Ash, and was competent given how the Sinnoh League is more competitive. It's as if Zekrom's lightning stunted Ash's mental growth.

    Angry Frustrating

    Frustrating anime moments:

    I don't agree Ash's Pokemon leaving is bad, because it adds emotion to the series. However dawns ambipom leaving is annoying coz it can't be seen again if dawn is gone, ash spent ages with that aipom just for it to leave like that.

    Team rocket not being seen in bw episodes, meaning rubbish storylines of team rocket

    Brock leaving In bw to be replaced by annoying cilan

    Gible and oshawott attention seeking, this causes other pokemon to have little personality

    Ash never using palpitoad outside of battle

    Iris catching emolga and excadrill. Great dragon types iris!

    What were the writers smoking when:
    1) they decided to reboot Ash in Best Wishes? Iris could have been the beginning trainer and Ash would still be a mentor. But NOOOOO.
    2) they made Iris catch Dragonite in its fully evolved form?
    3) they used that annoying voice for Piplup in the english dub?
    4) they made Tobias?
    5) they made the ending song for the Da! season?


    ^Cilan is not annoying, if anything he's better than Brock. All Brock did is to flirt with girls and comment on the battles Ash had.

    It is completely ridiculous how they keep making Ash seem like a noob every region he goes to. Is it too much to ask that they show at least some kind of character development? That is why I love Hikari and Haruka so much because unlike Ash they are growing as trainers. The writers need to make him the champion already and pass the torch to someone new imo. Dawn would be a good protagonist in my eyes lol

    I can make quite a list of my frustrating moments:

    - The GS ball plot being dropped because the writers thought it would be to similar to the 4th movie
    - The TRio's annoying behavior during AG and DP
    - Brock being so stale during AG and DP
    - Ash catching Gible (By far the worst out of Ash's Pokemon imo)
    - The TR vs TP episodes being postponed because of an earthquake that has nothing to do with it
    - Ash only having 1 vs 1 battle with Trip at the end
    - Ash losing to Cameron
    - Ash didn't get to battle Virgil
    - The TRio going back to being silly because of what I believe a vocal minority.

    2-3 months is amazing. You should be happy this isn't you aren't waiting six months to a year like in the old days.

    You have no proof of this whatsoever. It's true I don't have proof otherwise but please don't state what you believe as a fact.

    Ash is growing as a trainer. The problem is that the writers were probably drunk at a sleep-over party and suddenly someone came up with the idea of "hey guys let's reboot ash so that Best Wishes = the original series!!!". Probably they wanted to write Best Wishes in another way, but the Tohoku earthquake was a problem. In Best Wishes season 2, it looks like Ash becomes clever again, like in DP. Thank God for that.

    Yeaah, maybe you're right. I just get so tired of seeing Ash act like a total noob whenever he enters a new region. I get the writers don't want to make things easy for him
    so he doesn't look overpowered but come on, make the guy use his head more and stop having him be so dense when it comes to love. At least Charizard is back...

    Ash still being the main character all this time. If he accepted being a frontier brain then he could have been replaced by Dawn or Lucas with Barry as their rival and for Unova they could have used Touko or touya.

    also they didn't include Courtney and Matt as commanders in hoenn.
    And how Hunter J died. She was probably one of the best villains in THE show.

    And also how Brock's charisma gets thrown off if he sees a pretty girl and it's a villain (or a crossdresser) because it would have been funny if he fell for a pokevillain girl. And it would have made the 'unfair weather friends' episode funnier.

    Last but not least, Ash seems to only care about getting gym badges and if something bad happens he then just automatically continues like nothing happened e.g. At the end of the unfair weather friends episode he's just like 'oh no someone tricked us into helping them get important data on legends so Team Magma can find Groudon, Oh well I'll get my next badge. It's not like they want to dry up the sea, getting my next badge is more important.'. at least May tried to stop them. Ash didn't do much. Ugh, his obsession with being a pokemaster is annoying ><

    Until the day they'll make Ash the Pokemon Master he always wanted to be, which will happen when either Magikarp becomes Uber or Arceus is legal in NU, Ash is never going to leave. Period.

    Okay, I'm joking. But as long as they make money from the Pokemon games and they have viewers, Pikachu will continue to be promoted and so Ash will stay.

    I hate how Ash only captured about 10% of all Pokemon, when his motto was "Gotta catch' em all!"

    And even then, Charizard doesn't do much in BW2. He no longer has Seismic Toss, for example.

    That was an American promotional thing if I remember. At the very least, it's no longer a realistic goal and kind of never was in the anime.

    Post My thoughts

    Rebooting ash is a way of keeping veiwers, because if they would have made a new character there would have been even more hate for the series.
    But I still think he shouldn't have been rebooted.

    Also charizard forgetting seismic toss for steel wing and slash is an absolute crime!
