Yes of course I play the games. But it would make much more sense if thats what Ash did. Wouldn't you do it?
I really don't think you know what your taking about. It makes no sense to go from Veilstone to Snowpoint. Veilstone is the 3rd gym, Pastoria is the 4th, and Snowpoint is the 7th. Pastoria is the closest to Velistone. Simple as that.
