The stupid faces in SM also gives the impression that Ash has a lot more personality than he actually does.
    Yeah, for the most part, XY Ash didn't strike me as "emotionless" or lacking expression, either. He just seemed... calmer. More settled in himself, maybe. Like he knew who he was and what worked for him and was comfortable with it. He was a little on the serious side, yes, but after re-watching the last episode of BW I feel like they set up that change in demeanor pretty well. The part where he's lying on the grass, looking up at the sky and thinking of his past companions and friends, and then does that catching-the-sun-gesture feels almost like a rededication. As though he was reflecting on everything he'd gone through since the beginning and decided that he really was going to do it this time. And while he ultimately did not win the League this time around either, this attitude did help get him to the finals, further than he'd ever been before. It wasn't by any means the key ingredient/deciding factor, but it helped.

    She sucked as a character IMO. She was vapid and her snack indecision gag thing was infuriating. :/

    I second this. I'm still not entirely sure why people liked her, and I got a little annoyed when she was featured more than any other champion.

    Cynthia was the first ever female Champion.

    I don't blame the fandom for liking her. And I have no problem with her being 'flawless'.

    I don't blame the fandom for liking her, I just personally don't. I can see why someone would like her, but I can't find myself doing the same. I should've explained a bit more clearly, oops. I guess that's just what I get for posting early on a Monday morning...

    They should honestly have a special miniseries with a future, older Ash winning it all or something. That way fans know there's an end-game, and the current anime can take whatever amount of time with the premise that it'll eventually reach that future.

    Being OP kinda comes with being the Champion number 1,number 2 she was extremely knowledgeable about Sinnoh Legend and the bonds between Pokemon and Trainer and imparted wisdom to Ash, Paul and Iris that helped them tremendously in their own pursuits and very proactive with how she helped against Galactic instead of letting the children handle everything.

    Oh but she has one comedic quirk with being indecisive about ice cream so that makes her "vapid", gimme a break lmao

    I think they mean that it's such a basic and forced in quirk that it makes her look vapid. Like 'that's the best they could think of for a defect?'.

    It's not meant to be a 'defect' though.

    It's just a quirk. It serves the purpose of humanizing her a little.

    Don't you realize the irony of the most powerful trainer of Sinnoh being indecisive over which ice cream to pick? xD

    I think it's the fact that the character trait didn't suit her personality much. She's a strong-willed, kinda serious woman in the games, so it didn't make sense for her to gain an indecisive trait in the anime. I guess that's just opinions, though.
