Ash is only mature when he has the female protagonist of the games with him

Anyone else notice this?
With Misty and Iris, Ash is the rookie of the group, his battle skills are lackluster, he tends to have weak or underdeveloped pokemon teams, and he does poorly in battles and is made fun of in the group. Of course with Misty this actually made sense, as Ash WAS a rookie back in Kanto so you understood why they were doing it.
With May, Dawn and now Serena....Ash seems mature and competent, he is shown to be a skilled trainer, his Pokemon teams are mostly evolved and tough looking, and Ash accomplishes more and gets further to his goal. He also acts as a mentor of sorts to the female he travels with.
Of course this is just speculation for XY as it hasn't aired yet, but judging from previews Ash looks like he's going back to being mature and I'm sure his Pokemon team will reflect that. I just wonder why the writers even bothered making him a rookie again in Best Wishes only to bring him back up to his DP self one generation later.
