    In Johto, that would have been a perfect occasion to go back there like he did to Kanto.

    Let's see... Plasma, I think. BW is the best season in most ways (in my opinion), but it lacked Evil guys. Sure, Team Rocket are evil, and even very serious now, but it somehow still felt empty.
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    Something between Ashs Oshawott & Trips Snivy

    They came from the same place so there could of been a nice bit of history there.

    This is for missed opportunities, not for silly dreams you wanted.

    That would be great. I'd have liked to see Hilda as his rival in Unova.
    I know that, younger kids don't know about the old pokémon. But it's still annoying to see Ash scanning a freakin' Koffing. It just shows how low his IQ is. And yes i was thinking of Hilda too. Maybe the new female hero from B/W2, i forgot her name. But she looked pretty bad*** commanding her Serperior in battle against Cheren.

    Or maybe because he's using a different pokedex that he's never scanned a Koffing with before, he chose to do it.

    It's not that hard to figure out.

    Headesk

    How many times do I need to say this. Ash scans Pokemon regardless if he's seen them or not. It does not mean he's losing IQ points

    This needs to be either move to polls or closed

    And Rosa is not badass, nothing in that trailer made any character badass.

    That wasn't a missed opportunity, though. It was going to happen if the earthquake didn't skip the Plasma episodes.

    Agreed and also all of Team Plasma.

    anyway...Missed opportunities in the anime...I got a list:

    10. a female pikachu with surf and volt tackle
    9. Ash understanding girls better
    8. Ash cacthing a legend (any legend, fill in the blank...though Latias would've been a great team member )
    7. Trip being less annoying
    6. more episodes with mind control (seriously...they only had 5 or so...and other anime are full of that (i.e. Yu-Gi-Oh))
    5. more legend encounters on screen
    4. Mewtwo making another appearance
    3. the GS ball (need I say more?)
    2. Team Plasma
    1. N!!!!! (I seriously think he's snivy's OT)
    May the odds be EVER in your favor

    Iris could had a rival from Dragon village who aimed to be a Dragon Master as well and jealous of all the attention Iris get's from Elder & Drayden.
    While Iris is jealous of her cute look that attract a lot of people. (Specially male's)
    Writer could also had her participate in gym battle in order to level up her Dragon Pokemon (Her own way of training ). That way She would be Ash's rival as well.
    Then Ash can work as a bridge between them and improve their relationship.
    Another missed opportunity.

    What would have been a reason for her to return?

    HG/SS promotion? I remember some people thinking she would return because she was in the remakes

    To add to this: Ash's rivals weren't any better, despite what some might say. Paul was boring, Barry was obnoxious, and Conway came the hell out of nowhere as a rival.

    In all honesty I think that Conway only got badges and went to the Sinnoh League so that he could stalk Dawn so more, and I wouldnt even count Barry as a rival he was more of a helpful arrow than a competetive and supple arrow like Paul...

    A missed opportunity for the anime imo was letting the OI mainly focus on Ash and denied Misty the focus she should have gotten since they were in a Island based region -___-

    Was that really a missed opportunity though?

    It seemed like all the attention on the HG/SS promo was directed towards Johto and I feel like Misty promoting the games wouldn't have been all that necessary since she's only accessible until after Johto. I feel like they accomplished promoting those games with Lyra and bringing Misty back would have been somewhat of a stretch.

    Another thing just came to my mind:
    - I always had the idea that a Random-type Master shouldn´t just stick catching Pokémon of that type (even when I loved Misty´s team except the egg), I think a Random-type Master, apart from know every Random-type Pokémon, he/she should know about Random-type moves too; now with Iris not having only dragons because there aren´t too much and they learn practically the same move, I would like to see Iris teaching her non-Dragon type Pokémon some Dragon-type moves, yes, I know Excadrill and Emolga can´t learn any Dragon-type moves, but maybe if Iris had Scraggy/Scrafty or Archen/Archeops, she could teach them Dragon Claw or Dragonbreath.

    Ash not catching the Swampert he fought & weaken in '' Leading a Stray!''.
    Ash was so closed on catching that pokemon.
    He just needed to throw a Pokeball as it.
    I mean , How many time a trainer can get a opportunity to catch a fully evolved starter Pokemon.
    Also , I liked that way Luxio communicated with Ash using the electricity from his paw.
    Unfortunately, Ash could catch him because of Pikachu.
    Shhesss , Since BW Pikachu seem nothing more then a cute Mascot.
    Even a Rookies Pokemon more develop then him.
    Pikachu really did prove that he's the worst Pokemon A Trainer can chose to Travel with him.
    Ash should have replace Pikachu with that Luxio instate.
    just look , the perfect pairing

    -shiny metagross
    -The magnezone and metagross from the first ep of sinnoh league victors
    -Larvitar's mother (Charizard and snorlax vs TTar for a capture would be EPIC)
    -Wild gigalith
    -One of the Durants in the leavany episode
    -Aura sphere Riolu
    -Entei(if TROLLBIAS can do it then Ash can!)

    The amount of flaming that would happen if he caught a legendary would destroy the forum, are you trying to ban us all?! D8
    Aura Sphere Riolu would be nice, I like that idea.
