I didn’t mind contests going or Serena’s thing.Yes.
Other characters besides Ash exist. This ain't the AU movies lol
Maybe it’s because those seasons knew how to handle the balance better.
How the Hell is going to work?
Not to mention I still have no idea what they are doing with Chloe to even focus on.
I mean because this is such a big thing for Ash not just leagues and collecting gym badges. We can’t just keep switching back and fourth here.
