Because pokemon is a kids series [with a large teenage to adult fanbase] and the writers wouldn't know a good story if it bit them like a certain Gible I know. The reason why D and P was so good was bc it matured to an extent. For example Ash and Paul's rivalry, Chimchar actually biting Ash, power vs. friendship, Dawn's self-esteem, and mountains upon mountain's of shiptease. Then along came Black and White...
... and gave us this piece of dirt. Yes, my greatest condolences to all of us who has suffered from their decent to welcoming beginnings towards being plowed all the way to that greatest ending without much goodwill to remember by.
If only that 4th DP movie was about Ho-oh (and Lugia I guess) where we can finally wrap up on Ash's meeting with it since the very beginning. But nope. We get these 2 new Pokemon that provided absolutely nil to the movie and we get the most idiotic douche the show has ever made.
What is your favorite Pearlshipping fanfic?
If I had to choose from 1 to many, it's... I can't find it anymore, but it's something like "Power of the Aura" or something. The story where Ash became evil and misused his aura abilities.
I hated more on buneary than her mom honestly :b
But then again the anime isn't consistent, if Dawn was so eager to follow Ash why go to Hoenn after and not rejoin Ash ?
I can't blame either of them or anyone of DP's ending. We all know who the real culprit is.
