    It may be a "pillar" but it also contradicts one of the other "pillars", forming relationships with your Pokemon as if they were real pets. As Ash's massive collection shows, it's difficult to give Pokemon the individual attention they deserve when you have five dozen of them.

    Pokemon GO is the most sinful with this, and unsurprisingly it is most popular with adults who have outgrown the appeal of "digital pets" or "digital friends", a message that is core to the anime's enduring appeal.

    If you retool the anime to be about collecting Pokemon, it's far easier for a competitor like Yo-Kai Watch to capture the attention of children. There's no shortage of "collectable" hobbies; Pokemon occupies a unique niche.

    As much as I would love that to happen, I doubt it will, sadly.

    I don't want our Ash to get replaced by AU Ash, to end of Ash Journey and Team Rocks the way it did and with in my opinion the worse looking Ash though I guess that's a bit shallow of me. Also, if they use AU Ash why downgrade the Animation for that version? Please don't let that be the case, I'd like a good conclusion for our original Ash at least first.

    Hasn't Rika, Ash's JP VA, confirmed it's a continuation of the anime though? I thought someone else said that here.

    So Gou wants Mew? Well considering how lenient they are with mythicals/legendaries recently he might actually catch one, lol
  7. As some users think, I was just wondering what could be the one sensible reason to replace the mascot of anime Ash Ketchum.... with another AU Ash Ketchum??!!

    So Ash and Pikachu are going on a world tour this generation. I wonder if they'll bump into any old friends.

    Different dynamics with each other? Sophocles interactions with the rest of the characters were hardly unique or special. Mallow only had good interactions with Lana and sometimes early SM Lillie. Kiawe had good interactions with Ash and Lana and that is about it.

    And Mallow didn't do much throughout the entire series. Lillie did next to nothing other than learning a Z-move after the AF arc, which was nearly 87 episodes. Sophocles was mainly there just to be irritating and occasionaly have an episode with his Vikavolt like once or twice.

    Mythical Pokémon are an entirely different group altogether and they have always been presented as such in the Japanese media.

    Idk about you, but getting past the preliminary round is hardly an achievement when the battle format is an unfair game where you can gang up on people with your friends to win. Lana had the luck to go against an even less developed trainer than her, while Sophocles won because they managed to completely screw over Acerola's character.

    Kiawe was basically the only one who had any real presence there between the classmates.

    Yeah a few of them out of almost the entire Top 16 completed the Trials. Many of them didn't have a full team nor had that much experience battling. Some even had only 1 pokémon. They totally didn't earn their place there. And that is supposed to be a good thing how...?

    Only one or two were mediocre? Pretty much the entire League was mediocre, even Ash's last battle against Gladion.

    I smell a Reboot tbh.
    It makes sense since Ash looks young.

    You do realize I said more than two females right? As in Mallow, Lana AND Lillie. And you basically used the “I don’t like facts so I’ll just say the facts are all irrelevant or don’t matter” card.

    If they plan to promote Pokemon Masters, AU Ash could be used to present old characters again (or even other characters that doesn't appear in the anime before).

    That said, I don't think this will be AU Ash.

    Yeah. Rica made it clear that this Ash is the same one that we've been following for 7 generations and 22 years.

    Apparently the writers don't know something called subtlety with GO's name. Really? (Yes I know we have names like red and blue but GO did not earn that in my mind besides making a ton of money.)

    Also the show did need something new instead of go do gyms and beat the league. But at least have more focus than SM did. There was no consistency with the island trials, a stupid knockoff of power rangers, baseball episodes, just c'mon.

    The whole appeal of pokemon is to catch and battle, and make friends along the way. That doesn't mean you can't have bonding moments inbetween or episodes relaxing in a hot spring but in comparison SM had like 20% actual battles between trainers and 80% fluff or just doing random things.

    XY had Bonnie, Serena and Jessie in the female main cast. They also had a temporary female main character which was Korrina and a side series female main character which was Manon.
