Unify To Thrive
At the end of the Diamond and Pearl saga, we saw ash Brock and dawn contemplating what their futures would be like. I believe this took place in DP 191. And in this episode, Brock decided to pursue becoming a doctor, Dawn decided to stay in Sinnoh, and Ash renewed his vow to become Pokemon master. My question is, was this done intentionally to symbolize, and once again, emphasize the "fresh start" that people claimed Best Wishes to be at first? Is it possible that it was planned for ash to regress in his league placement from the start of Best Wishes? Also, this isn't a thread to discuss how Ash lost and how much hatred there is for Cameron.
