Can we please get the older, old forum back?
Would Ash's staying in Pokémon Anime be inevitable while assuming that endgame is currently nonexistent, Imagine thinking that Ash would leave the Pokémon Anime. Like I said... it's never going to happen regardless of their decision. Ash will still stay regardless of the fanbase saying that he has to be replaced.
1. The writers barely take heed of any online forums, much less let themselves be influenced by it.
2. Not sure if the 'fanbase' is actually saying they want Ash gone, but rather a vocal minority. Also note that when we got Goh as a second male protagonist he was (to my knowledge) almost universally disliked. It's a case of be careful of what you wish for.
I hope to at least be alive to finally see ash rest.
Not gonna lie. Disregarding my relatives, the individuals I've known for the longest period of my life are Ash and Pikachu.. xD
