    Youngster Joey is nothing more than an NPC, plus he evolved his Rattata if you rematch him.

    The only reason he didn't sign up for the Sinnoh League is because he knew he would OHKO Tobias and all his legendaries, so he decided to join the Unova League ;D
    3rd time I've been quoted this week. I feel special D8

    Enough with this irrelevant topic of Joey

    A real reason of these missed opportunities can be in a simple answer in the form of that the writers decided to do this.

    This. I still hope Benga will appear in the filler arc or something.

    This raises a lot of questions.
    1. Tobias actually has offspring?! O+O ...I bet you 5 dollars he ditched his wife and family to become the ultimate haxer. D8
    2. I bet you he cloned Latios and Darkrai for his son/brother. HE IS THE ULTIMATE HAXER.
    3...I just wanted to put a 3 here.

    I'd like to see a Benga v.s Iris or Ash battle. :3

    I'd take anyone over Kotetsu and Virgil, specially Benga. I'd love to see he battling in the league with his Volcarona.

    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
    FYI Vodor, Swampert was already owned by another trainer that was with the group at the time. Ash and the others didn't know.

    Also, really? Luxio replacing Pikachu? You're out of your freaking mind Vodor. Pikachu is being starred so much in Best Wishes mainly because he never was the shining star in any of the gym battles back in Diamond and Pearl, which I think is a plus. Though Luxio would be a cool Pokemon for Ash, Pikachu is still his partner now and forever. If you try to say that Pikachu's bland again, well...

    Me: *sends out Beartic* I'll just have to improvise. Annie, Icicle Crash!

    Annie: Sure thing! *hits Vodor with icicles*

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I'd love to see Benga appear in the anime too. Perhaps a battle between him and Ash is in order, yes?

    You're thinking of a different Swampert.. the Swampert you're thinking of is the one back in Hoenn on the Abandon Ship. The Leading a Stray one was wild

    Oh, my bad. But still, you shouldn't give Ash all that power with yet another water starter. What about, Squirtle, Totodile, & Corphish? They have feelings too you know. Also that would just make Ash seem too strong at a standpoint. But of course, that's what you always want Vodor.

    As a missed opportunity in the anime, when right down to it, is seeing all the Unova Elite 4 members in their own episodes meeting Ash and the group. We could have had Ash challenge them to a battle, or even show us how they battle with their own Pokemon. For example, Marshal is Alder's said apprentice, Caitlin is a Psychic type user who loves peace and relaxation, Shauntal is a book writer, and Grimsley, he's just freaking cool. (What does he do besides be an Elite 4 member anyway?)

    Oh well, maybe if there's another filler saga in Unova, maybe the entire Elite 4 will show up in some episodes.

    The writers have missed too many opportunities where a character can have development, and they have missed the opportunities to show the development. But I suppose that because the Pokemon anime goes on for a very long time, writing in development too early can result in little to look forward to and an early termination for the writer who wrote it in.

    Iris not getting a Deino instead of Dragonite, nor evolving Axew by now. And not enough appearances by the rivals.
    A soul that cannot be saved drifts and disappears,
    In the instant it vanishes, it shines faintly,
    Now, it creates a night with a full moon.

    I have to agree with you on the rivals bit. The rivals always get sparce appearances, either at Tournament arcs or a silly episode where they recieve nearly zero character development. The writers need to stpe this show up a notch.

    Well, "Rival Destinies" kind of gave the rivals some attention. We got some good single episodes of all them, besides the tournaments.

    Bianca challenging Elesa & the conflict with her overprotective dad
    Trip with the Alder episode
    Burgundy with the whole ordeal at the rich mansion, and "blasting off again"
    Stephan competing in the Mistralton Tower contest.
    Georgia during the crisis at the Ferroseed lab
    Luke making a movie in the Pokestar Studios


    Also, the chance to bring more out of Pierce's character and appearances. But from the looks of it, we wouldn't get an end to his character due to the TP/TR episodes delayed.

    I also agree with the fact that Iris isn't a gym leader, where it would have been epic for Ash and Iris to have a battle again (referring to Iris' win in the Club Battle tournament).
