The specific notion that stand alone Pokemon are nothing. That's where my disagreement lies. I already explained that. But I think you missed that specific line. Me and you agree on a lot of stuff here but alienating certain Pokemon just because they can't evolve that's where I gotta say something.You disagree with me but then prove my point.......how?
I want Ash to catch Pokemon, he's turned away from that specific attribute and only gets certain Pokemon in generations, in a region where Development is not the priority I only care about specific Pokemon that Ash to capture. Dragonite (Check), Arcanine, Gengar (Check), Tyranitar, Espeon, Flygon (RIP), Absol, Volcarona, Zoroark, Zeraora, Obstagoon, Toxtricity, Urshifu (SS), Zacian and Lugia. (He's not going to capture every single one of these Pokemon that I want) I'd rather have Ash have ownership of the Pokemon and put it on the peg board. Now the structure is flawed, yes the character development is vastly needed. I'm very pleased that the reserves are returning but at what cost. More disappearance, more missed opportunities. I've always approached Pokemon in how they structure the saga. But unfortunately here there is none so its more open season. I'm hoping this coming arc changes some of my opinions but there are unfortunately a lot of shortcomings. In a saga where there is a load of potential not being acted upon.
