    I want something different this time.

    Personally, with all the recurring characters we'll likely have I'd like to see what they could do with just Ash and Female Companion. The third wheel isn't always there. When they are it's a recurring character who travels with them for an arch before leaving.

    Because he wouldn't have many other characters to interact with. Yes, there are COTDs, but those attachments won't be permanent and would amount to nothing in the end. If the anime's done anything right, it's that the characters he's traveled with do end up forming a tight bond with the kid and it's actually developed well, for the most part. Besides, from an advertising stand point, it'd be tough to do so with just him.

    I'm with you this, An00bis. I think Ash and a female companion could work really well. Yes, there will be inevitable shippings of those 2 but isn't it inevitable that people will ship Ash with the main girl from each region whether we are looking at a duo, trio, or 4 people together? This would be a really unique twist. Although I don't want Gina to punch me so I will say that Cilan should be there as well XD

    Character wise, any interactions that Ash needs can be easily achieved through COTD's. It's what Pokemon hangs its hat on since the beginning. Pretty much every episode involves Ash helping any random person that just so happens to need help. Without taveling companions, the episode structures would very much be the same, just minus two other characters.

    Yes I would like to see Ash travel alone only for a couple of episodes then meets the new female companion and they travel as a duo I don't doubt the writers I could see them making it work and as for Trio its been used so muchthat i'd like something new but I wouldn't disapprove another Trio and a 4 person group with atleast one of them having 6+ pokemon and the rest having between 3-6 pokemon the writers can barley even out screen time now and a 5 person group dont get me started >.>

    And that would get old very fast. Because people would want him to form relationships with others. Also, for people who don't like Ash or prefer other characters, they won't have anyone else to identify with or enjoy as much. It just wouldn't work out. It'd be even tougher for the show to stay fresh.

    Just like when Bianca appeared every now and then? The narrator seemed to define that Bianca was part of the gang, but during the times she actually appears.

    this would of been perfectly fine as an idea if some people just weren't so sick of ash. lol If this was a done in the third region then it would of been fine...but since the pattern has been established, its hard to break and atcually be interesting.

    (To be interesting they have to play with other character stereotypes and such. Make the anime flair because Ash by himself is just there. lol

    I'm not sure how well a mere duo would work out. With just one person to interact with, it's possible the show would get stale after a while, at least depending on how the two get along. I think a group dynamic with three or four can do wonders. As for a four person group, they could very well balance out a group with 3 to 6 Pokemon, including Ash's... Of course, yeah, the writers might end up giving someone the shaft which would suck. I'm hoping (although expectations are low) that they can do things right since BW had a great group dynamic.

    Ash and Dawn would of been fine by themselves if they weren't expected to abide by "kids anime rules."
    Hell, ash and May would of done fine due to Ash being mentorish as well. But the problem is that they have hard time diving deep or just semi-deep to make the most of it.

    To be honest, I actually liked the trio better. A duo or solo, ash needs to have more entertaining quirks, not be so overused (sadly...lol), and in general be more mature. xD

    Yep. The idea being that they stick around for 3-4 episodes and then part ways for whatever reason. Maybe we'll have 3-4 Recurring Characters including the rival and we'll see them all in rotation. We'll also see significant characters from the games in the group occasionally.

    The only possible problem I could see is eventually people will come to favor just one of the Guest Characters and wonder why the writers didn't just put them in the group the whole time. The answer for that is simple, though. There seems to be very little middle ground when it comes to the third wheel in the group. People seem to either like them or hate them. This way we can have a third man/woman while reducing the chances of them becoming stale.

    I would like to see Ash travel alone for a little bit in the very beginning, kind of like in D/P when Pikachu went missing but for a little bit longer, and then he can meet whoever he is going to travel with.

    YAY!! My least favorite people traveling with Ash the next regionXD

    I always liked what they did in the AG series, wouldn't mind them going back to that again. Only this time, it'd be without Brock.

    lol. That was literally the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw her. Yeah I don't want to put up with that for 3 years. I'd personally like to see a girl who is stoic/relaxed yet really kind. And maybe when pushed over her limit she explodes with unimaginable fury the likes we haven't seen before.


    If you rooted for Dawn during A Grand Fight For Winning even though you knew she'd lose, then copy and paste this in your signature.

    I was imagining someone who was sweet, kind, and had an obsession with cooking and proper etiquette. I proper lady until pushed.

    Why she'd travel with Ash (besides he likes her cooking) is anyone's guess.

    Because she secretly loves watching and doing gym battles? :P
    She secretly adores the battling despite being a "Proper lady", and makes some excuse to follow ash around just watch him fight in the gyms, while secretly wanting (and eventually doing) to join ash in that regard.

    -Ash (hopefully he will play the role of mentor to the new girl)
    -A flamboyant gay guy who wears a pink scarf, who's also has a bit of a vindictive streak and competes in contests. So, basically Harley 2.0.
    -A young female rookie who aspires to become a gym leader. In order to become stronger, she starts collecting badges (I like the idea of anime only badges being introduced next saga to prevent the badge hunt becoming stale and repetitive).
    -A sassy black lady who plays the role of "mother" to the main cast. She looks kind of like Leonara and she loves to cook- when members of the main cast are getting out of hand she threatens to beat them with her spatula.

    Ha, this could work. :P Although the rookie girl you described would basically be May 2.0 except with aspirations to be a Gym Leader...

    If there were more than 5 trainers, and given that the focus will be mainly on Ash (and a new trainer if they add one), the others would be so undeveloped O.o

    Something similar to DP would be nice. Ash as the central character who can actually progress instead of regress, then a female character based on the female playable character from the games and who has a goal that doesn't involve evolving one Pokemon, and a male companion who cooks and stuff and is more humble and likable.
