There should be 5th gen because i remember hearing that Pokemon might go on forever,but I don't think Ash should go on forever.
it would be interesting if they made the 5th gen to be a decade in the future were ash is finally an adult and they would introduce a brand new character to follow in the series.ash could make a few cameo appearences of course.IMO thats what they may do eventually.There should be 5th gen because i remember hearing that Pokemon might go on forever,but I don't think Ash should go on forever.
If it will not be ash mabe it will go back in time for his fathers journey? because like on the second wpisode his mum said that it took his father two days or something! Gee he must be rubish it takes everyone like 30 seconds! lolso they introduce 5th gen in movie 12 but don't elaborate on it too much until the new games are created and then the anime would take place 10 or so years in the future without Ash, maybe his son, cousin, or a completely random person. the only reason i would think they'd follow a relative of Ash's would be so he could make cameos and reference events from long ago
Yeah, but didn't they stop with DBZ (i never really watched it that much)? And if so, the difference btw them is, DBZ stopped and Pokemon is still going on.Just like DBZ, Pokemon has what I call the infinite formula, it can just keep going and going. It can also just stop whenever it wants.
The person who told you about Ash not returning in D/P either lied to you or is very stupid, maybe both.Personally I think if they do another season with 5th gen, which they will no doubt do, that they should drop Ash. When I first heard about D/P I had heard that Ash wasn't in it, though this proved to be false annoyingly. I mean it's not like Ash isn't an okay character, but after being around him so long its gotten fairly easy to predict his reactions to things. The first season was the best for Ash because more often then no he was the underdog and we saw him go through his many trials in order to become a strong trainer. Now we are there and wondering what to do. Maybe in the next gen they could make Ash an enigmatic figure, only seeing brief shadows of him or extremely subtle hints of his presence. Then in the dramatic conclusion the new hero would fight Ash in a battle of the ages! That and how many times is Pikachu going be de-leveled from elite four level to first gym level?
