Each one of Trip's four losses where in battles that began in the end of one episode and ended in the beginning of the next.
Finding an apple tree whenever they are lost and hungry. I mean, it is possible...but he exact moment they get hungry.
How Ash never misses the league. I mean, c'mon. What are the odds of Ash meeting 5 people that are going to the league, and none of them gets the 8th badge 1 day after the league is finished
How about how Ash, his friends and rivals are all around the same area and manage to participate in tournaments together.
Nurse Joys usually tells about the next Big Event/Gym Location. She probably tells other Trainers, too.How about how Ash, his friends and rivals are all around the same area and manage to participate in tournaments together.
That said, it's awfully convenient that the two primary emergency personnel (Jenny and Joy) both look exactly the same and are apparently the most traveled families in the world having populated every known region.
How about how out of all the trainers in the region the champion and any other important grown up takes special interest in Ash, his friends and rivals.
Ash's recurring rivals all lost by the order of how they debuted in the league. Trip, Bianca and then Stephan.
How in fillers, Ash always shows up when something interesting/bad is happening.
Example: the OVNI episode, the Cottonee episode, the Maractus episode. Kinda weird
The fact that Dawn's Swinub evolved whenever the group was captured...

A Friend in Deed. Ash befriends the only Pokemon Trainer in the League who labels their Pokeballs. Incidentally, this came in handy because he and new friend were put in a situation where their Pokeballs were grouped together with hundreds of others seemingly identical Pokeballs. Then again, Ash might've been able to save the day anyway since he had Pikachu. Being one of the few Trainers back then who allows his Pokemon to roam 24/7 he could've used Pikachu to sniff out his Pokemon before Team Rocket reached their destination.
Oh, and then they had to fight each other.
Ash's pikachu gets depowered just in time to get beaten up by a snivy
How there always happens to be a body of water around them every time Ash and his friends meet up with Bianca.
Evolution. Each and every time.
Hell, evolution by levelling up might as well be represented as "direness of situation at hand" versus "negativity of likely outcome".
Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.Shokotan: "And then, in Extremespeed Genesect: The Awakening of Mewtwo, we meet another Mewtwo!"
Yuyama: "Yes, I thought it'd be better if it was a different Mewtwo."
It is just so far fetched.. Even more notably by the fact that only a few hundred, heck, even a few dozen of viewers may watch both original and dub in the same week they air. No company, and I stretch company, will go out of their way (which usually means a monetary spending) to do this, for what is literally .000000something% of their viewers. Yes, I'm talking about a 0.millionth% of their total viewing body per week. I'm pretty sure around pokemon is watched by around a million people every week, combining viewing of ALL dub that is. A company will not go out of their way, and thus spend money, for some 60-150 fans that watch both the Japanese and American versions as they air.. Heck, through my viewing experiences, I have noted that only a fraction from the guys and girls who post here frequently watch the Japanese dub as it airs, and only take looks at the pictures, and sometimes don't watch at all. And then there's the fact that some of these simply don't watch the American dub, myself included, as it airs, and will only look it up for references down the road, or if viewing of the original has become troublesome. The best part is of course, that the vast, vast majority of viewers, don't watch any other form of the animé then their own dub. The vast majority of English viewers, will be familiar with the American dub, the vast majority of viewers of Japanese viewers couldn't give a crap about the term 'dub' as they barely have to dub anything aside from Hollywood movies. Then there's the German, French, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, etc dubs, and their viewers, who on regular basis, don't watch the American dub at all, making the argument you're making already kind of faulty in a sense.. Unless you wanna argue that Japan > USA > other dubs, which is a debate rooted in a whole different context...
So yeah again, coincidence is a mighty word that might instill Focus Sash Endeaver Quick Attack Rattata in the hearts of many who can't believe in it. While in the same breath what you are taking in for accordance is really pushing the bounderies of logical thinking.. No offence, but from a business standpoint, it's a really innate way to spend money. "We have to make the seasonal break this many weeks long so that Cameron's battles fall inline with what the Japanese will air! Okay, so we'll have to wait two weeks longer then originally planned (=costs money), but oh well! I guess those few hundred some fans out of a million that watch this show in one form or another will recognize the money and effort we spent in coordinating this show and give us massive props for this and will defend us against those other sceptical posters that defy our logic with real logic!"
Yeah, I get it, I'm a sceptic eitherway, I don't mind. I like looking at the world with a critical view. Oh, and to the poor pansies of the forum: My berserk button was not hit, and I'm not spoiling your happy-parade with my negativity. This is just discussing on the level of bringing up arguments and supporting them with venom tongued anecdotes. I know realize that for some of the posters, these disclaimers should be put into place because they can't handle discussion on a discussion forum..
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
"If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."
Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:
The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..
