Agreed. I was so angry when Misty left at the end of OS myself. Very saddened myself by that decision at the time. Characters tend to leave a big impression on you and replacing them does tend to lower one's interest in a show. Especially if that character is one's favorite, or they feel they had a unique dynamic with the others.

"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." -- OS Ash, ESS
