When they go away from battles that could be fun to show something else going on that's less interesting. Like they skipped much of Ash's Quilava's battle with Nando's Armaldo to show team rocket selling food.

I hated how Ash catching Gibble ended up being a total waste. He really needs to let it back on his team and let it grow stronger. Ash has sooooooo many wasted potential Pokémon that they all need some time on his team in order to be fulfilled. The wasted Pokémon at Oak’s Lab are 28 of the Tauros (they all must know different moves and have different areas of personality and strength), Kingler, Muk, Boldore, Buizel, Corphish (I often forget that Ash has one), Scraggy, and Palpitoed (only had one major battle which it lost anyway).

God yes, shoving Team Rocket into the plot of every episode just so the writers and animators don't have to do any actual work got old real fast

The only time they got Team Rocket "right" was in SM when they were allowed to finally be characters instead of plot devices

I think BW also had a good TRio up until the earthquake and tsunami happened and changed everything.

I get that having to create ~50 episodes yearly is a huge undertaking for any animation studio, but I hate that they are so unwilling to break the mold a little and do something different. There are so many plot lines that are just rehashed and it's clear that the writers are bored. We're bored too.

Post-DP seasons pretending the OS never happened. Thankfully, Charizard's return in BW and Journeys is fixing that.
XY was the only saga that I can remember that didn't include at least one major OS callback, but I'm not seeing why that should be considered problematic. The writers weren't pretending that OS didn't exist at the time: they just had better things to do than pander to the OS fandom, and I say this as a huge fan of the OS episodes myself.

That the show producers actually came out with this horrible sm artstyle and thought it was ok.
All the people I know that didnt watch Pokemon for years and saw Sm Ash were like: wtf happened to Ash’s face

These leaks have me distressed
I guess I can finally say this because it usually gets clobbered in the “Goh is a serial killer freak”.

I don’t care for Goh. I think he’s boring and uninteresting and quite frankly too boring to even rant about. How people write dissertations making false associations about his mental cognition is beyond me.

Anyway I will never forgive the writers for implanting Pokémon Go in the series. It’s sucks like I realize Pokémon Go has made the company a bunch of money but nobody wants to see that. The whole point of Pokémon Go is that YOU’RE doing the catching and YOU’RE interacting with Pokémon. Implanting this into the series and having a character do this as his main objective and goal was bound to get repetitive and boring. It also adds insult to injury that it defies common rules about catching Pokémon in the first place.

The fact that Lana's Eevee and Mallow's Shaymin were completely wasted.
It's weird they didn't even evolve Sandy or give it a water type boost of some sort, even in Lana's return appearance, while poor Shaymin didn't even get to show off an attack besides Aromatherapy.

It took ages for the girls to get their secondary Pokemon in SM and then they didn't do anything with them.

I'm upset with the coronation series battles. I get pikachu is the mascot, but he doesn't use his other pokemon much at all.

I hate when plot points are given a lot of focus just to be dropped and never referred to again like the GS Ball (yes I know why it was dropped).
You mean...

...they dropped the ball?
