- He's regressed way too much in the BW Saga.
- He's stale, boring, and repetitive.
- He's still 10 years old after 15 years.
- The writers are disgracing his character by not allowing me to progress at this point.
- He has now regressed in rank at a League.
- He scans Pokemon he has seen numerous times over and over again.
- He never wins regional Pokemon Leagues.
- There is no such thing as being a Pokemon Master, because his happiness is to lose every 3-4 years, acts as if nothing happened, and reset!
- He sucks the life from different 10 year old girls in order to maintain his youthfulness. XD.
- His dub voice is unbearable to listen to for me in late BF until the end of DP. It's too deep, and does not sound like a 10 year old boy.
It's been unbearable for many dub fans since the start of BF (you'll know why).
- He has not gotten much further in his goal than when he started his journey.
- His Pikachu can beat a Dragonite, a Regice, and tie with a Latios, but can lose to an Eevee, Elekid, and a Lvl. 5 Snivy.
- He's no longer a likeable or somewhat genuine character. He's become a marketing tool.
- He's too stupid these days.
...Need I say more?...
Honestly, I think it's less Ash, and the fact that the older characters have been milked dry at this point. It's time for a change.
The writers need to either 1) bring all of the older characters back for a final, huge arc, where they all reach their goals, or 2) start off with a clean slate.
He's always been 10. That's never changed. The narrator only confirmed it in BW001.

None of the characters are any older than when they started out in Kanto. That's also why I still feel many of TPCi's dub voices do not fit the characters.

"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- The Best Ash: OS Ash, ESS
