Is Ash the anime counterpart of some of the male game protagonists? Not only Red.

    With an exception of Ethan, Brendan and Nate.

    Yes, Ash is originally based on Red from the games.

    As he travels a new region (since Sinnoh) his new outfit somehow familiar from what male game protagonist design, with a little changes.

    This applies first during Diamond and Pearl saga whereas he wore a jacket similar to Lucas minus the scarf with different hat.

    His BW even though his jacket color is different to Hilbert's, his frontal design was close his.

    His XY was pretty obvious. His jacket color and design looks exactly like Calem's while his hat is similar to Red's FRLG hat.

    SM is like the most obvious.

    And if the opposite gender has an interaction with the player such as a friend / rival, she will appears on the anime as a travelling companion (May, Dawn and Serena).

    Ignition Meltan is the only good aspect of LGPE

    He takes inspiration from their clothes but that's really it. There's no distinct personality from Gold-Sun's main characters because they're not NPCs like Red. Plus we've seen most of them in movie openings.

    The only thing he has that connects him to the male protagonists is that he isn't native to Hoenn, Kalos, and Alola much like Brendan, Calem, and Sun
    Other than that, no. He's just a more interesting version of Red who steals the new male protagonist's clothes every new generation

    There's really no excuse why the males apart from Red(Who Ash is based off of) and Jimmy(Gold) haven't gotten roles, I'm quite sick of it really.

    Looking forward to have Ash wore original outfit during Gen 8 and this break the tradition of copying whoever male protagonist's outfit in the future

    I mean the creators made an original outfit for Ash during AG series and didn't copy Brendan's outfit. Then why not

    Agreed on both.

    To be honest, I've been wanting the male player character to become one of Ash's companions ever since the days of the original GS when I saw Gold's design. I do hope generation 8 will finally change that.

    Same here. I've found his AG outfit to be a lot better than Brendan's clothes. Not to mention they match fairly well with RS Brendam and Emerald May lol

    His series outfits only really take inspiration from those worn by the male protagonists in the games and that's about it.
