    Default Does Ash have any accomplishments in BW at all?

    Ash has lost all 4 tournaments in BW. The fact that the writers didn't let him win a single one is quite bizarre.

    He then barely scraped a win against Homika by using 6 pokemon, and he didn't battle the toughest Gym leader of the region which was Drayden. His Pokemon team is one of the worst handled in the shows history and his rank in the league was worse.

    What did Ash accomplish in BW? It's like the writers destroyed 13 years of development in the span of 2 years.

    Right now there aren't many accomplishments, and yes he's weak in BW, but there's still a lot to come, especially in Best Wishes N. And it will probably solve that mystery in episode 1 with Zekrom and Pikachu's electricity. We'll just have to find out. So yeah, my point is that there's still many episodes left until we could come with a conclusion with his accomplishments.

    Also, He's either going to be in the Top 4 or Top 2 of the league (or even win but I doubt it) so that's kind of an accomplishment?

    If he loses to Kotetsu he gets Top 8. Sadly with that being the last ep of the league it's almost confirmed now.

    To be honest, I don't even care.

    All I can think about right now is N and TEAM PLASMA!!!

    Don't get too excited with the way this saga has been handled.

    The trailer seems promising.

    Also, no big tournaments, yaay!

    Really? I had no clue. I actually thought he won because of those scans. Shame.

    The N saga starts 1/17 and the Kotetsu ep airs 1/10 which is the previous weak. This the league is over.

    maybe it's because of him NOT having as much interaction with TR, heck they were the cause of most of his pokemon's development in sinnoh next to Paul.

    Only real way Ash can make an achievement in BW is if he does the stupidly-highly unlikely thing: catch Zekrom. Catching a legendary would make up for all these years of league losses.

    Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.

    Obtaining the gym badges and successfully hatching another egg are his only BW accomplishments to date..

    I'm actually genuinely concerned about the N saga now..
    OR Playthrough - Route 118

    This won't change often.. I play through the games slowly..

    Forgetting that Pikachu, the starters, Krokorok and Scraggy have all got memorable personalities, development and interesting moves. (Though the starters have a mediocre moveset combined.)

    The tournaments were all meant to give characters focus. Aside from the first Don Battle, Ash didn't really have a good reason to win any of them.

    Except this arc will be completely plot-driven.

    No badges, stupid rivals and lazely-done tournaments. Relax.

    Very unlikely. The whole arc isn't going to be about villains.

    Sadly, he hasn't. What in the heck are the writers waiting on to give him? D:

    Ya cuz Scraggy is such an accomplishment lol. And he should give back two of his badges because they were joke badges.

    Obtaining gym badges is not a feat. The next time Ash will have a feat is when he makes it to the finals. But quite honestly, I think the show is going to be canceled before that happens. These writers are so brain dead it's not even funny anymore.
    hehe

    Which Badges were those? I think he earned every one of them fairly, even if a few of them were won through mediocre writing.

    Ash getting all 8 badges is a given though, it's nothing exciting.

    The fourth battle was won fair and square.. The eighth could be argued, but they were Roxie's rules so technically he still won fairly..

    Let's see...

    OH OH OH OH OH.

    Ash obtained all 8 badges quicker than he did in DP!~

    And he caught the most Pokemon he ever did //bar 30 Tauros//.~

    So while Ash may not have won any tourneys, he still had his own mini accomplishments.

    Not really, but I don't really care.
    Besides he'll probably achieve something in the N series.

    Ash's accomplishments:
    -Caught and used a Dark-type Pokemon for the first time ever
    -Got a Cybercubed thread made in his ho...Wait! That's not an honor at all!

    Yeah, that's all I got.
