But Hau seems like dream crasher type just like Cameron back to the BW days
Hau is a game character. Ash has never lost in the league to a game character.Hope that Ash will win Alola League (weak and with no decent competitors one) and lose to the first Elite Four member Kahili. But Hau seems like dream crasher type just like Cameron back to the BW days
There's a first time for everything though.Hau is a game character. Ash has never lost in the league to a game character.
The series director and all the writers work together, and it's obvious given we've gone through like 3-4 different directors by now...that something in the higher ups told them Ash can't win a league.
Between Shudo (OS), Hidaka and Tomioka (AG), Tomioka again (DP), BW's director, Yajima (XY), and now Matsui (SM), we've gone through several directors and they all have Ash lose the league. I'm sure not every single one of them wants Ash to lose the league every series, there's got to be someone in charge above that which tells the anime staff Ash can never win a league till the show is ready to end. Otherwise why would 5+ different directors do the same exact thing? After 21+ years there's got to be someone high up on the totem pole telling the anime staff he can never win a league, no matter what the directors or writers want.
Honestly that explains why there was so much filler in season 4 though at the same time we did get some pretty awesome stuff in that time frame like the Johto League and Battle Frontier. Gotta give props to DP for how cohesive the overall narrative felt. I feel like they probably wanted to get to the heart of the matter on the philosophy of catching and raising Pokémon which prior to DP was never truly challenged when they were coming up with the story.For series composer:
Shudou Takeshi (First Series #1-157)
Tomioka Atsuhiro (Diamond & Pearl #1-XY & Z #47)
Matsui Aya (Sun & Moon #1-present)
Clearly you can see that after Shudou left the series there was a big gap without a series composer. That meant the duties would fall to the series director and chief director but since those three didn't really have strong visions as directors the story fell a part. Tomioka (and later Asada Yuuji) seemed to really push forth a strong vision during DP. I wish someone would ask Asada and Iwane on Twitter about how DP's story came about.
Tomiyasu Daiki was also the series director of Pokemon Generations with Tomioka Atsuhiro as the series composer and writer of every episode.
Once we got to DP however, then it became obvious the writers were going to screw over Ash forever. Between Tobias with legendaries, Cameron being an idiot, then Alan having plot armor, etc...now Ash just loses every league for ridiculous reasons and plot armor. At least the Kanto/Johto/Hoenn league losses felt reasonable.
For what has to be the trillionth time...Serena never went toe-to-toe with Ash. She got a hit in. In a single sparring match. After Braixen took a bunch of hits. And Pikachu didn't even look hurt. And it was Braixen's strongest move.Hell even in XY which was considered the peak of his experience, somehow Clemont and even SERENA were able to go to toe to toe with him by the end of the series with a zillionth of the same training, which only made his arc seem even more futile.

I am getting really weary of people pretty much showing up on youtube videos of Ash and Alain's final battle spouting out hatred and pretty much saying that Alain robbed Ash's opportunity to win and retire as protagonist.
I think this is a tournament where ash could win t all, since it is the first league that will be happening in alola so it wouldn't be a big tournament so i dont think it is going to hold the candle to leagues of different regions. So it could give the writers a good time to give ash something big after 12-13 years of BF.
I hope it's not just one-on-ones though. But yes, in terms of the number of participants I agree.The thing is even if Ash wins the Alola league, it feels like nobody will care. The Alola league feels like it's going to be nothing important, and it certainly won't have 50+ people competing like all the other leagues where characters got 8 Gym badges.
As far as we know it'll be more similar to the Don battle tournaments from BW.
Ash doesn't lose leagues to game characters.I never expected Satoshi to win the Kalos League. He had no driving thrust to win the League throughout most of the series and Alan was pretty much clearly going to be the one to win it considering how much focus he got. If Satoshi was ever going to win a League it would've been in Diamond & Pearl but with the Shinji battle as the Championship Round. Satoshi will probably lose to Gladio or Royal Mask in the final round this time.
