Why Pokemon The Series: XY Will Suck ***WARNING: DIFFERENT OPINION***

I wanted to title this "Why I think...Will Suck", but the current title sounded better and was shorter. Just to reiterate my warning, if you think you'll be offended by what I have to say, DO NOT READ.
I'm sure everyone's seen this scan by now.
Even though I haven't even watched the anime, the scan speaks for itself, really.
#1: The Group
The XY group consists of Ash (of course), Yvonne (hate the name Serena), Clemont and his little sister Bonnie. Assuming that Bonnie isn't just an escort, this means we have a four-man group, something that hasn't been done since AG. What is the problem, you may ask? Well, the writers can barely handle a trio, so why should I trust them to handle four people? It almost guarantees that at least one person will get the shaft. Also, to add to that, Yvonne, Ash and Clemont all look about the same age, which means Ash might take on a mentor role...it's not like that hasn't been done two times before. I'm not sure what Clemont will be like, but I'm dreading the return of "almighty" Ash who was void of all personality, as well as the "Characterization" of generic fanservice girl Yvonne (not that he had any personality in BW, but he did have more humor at the expense of himself, which was funny, even though it had nothing to do with Ash himself). If Dedenne does belong to Bonnie, at least she MIGHT do more than Max, but she still might get the short end of the stick. I don't know why they couldn't just keep the BW characters (I HATED Cilan, but I'd still be willing to tolerate him).
UPDATE (09-22-13): Apparently, Serena is into fashion...that might have been interesting in the hands of better writers, but I know these ones will make sure it practically defines her. Why couldn't she avert the fashion stereotype?
#2: Team Rocket
What can I say that hasn't already been said? If Wobbuffet being on the poster is anything to go by, the incredibly unfunny Team Rocket is back...and this time they'll be worse than ever with Wobbuffet on the team! Unlike some, I don't find Wobbuffet (post-Johto Wobbuffet at least) funny. He's just a living plot device that exists only to pop out and finish TR's stupid jokes (think Larry and The Brain, except unfunny and not a parody).
That's all I have to say for now, but as more details are leaked, I'm sure to update, unless they're the good kind of information. There was one more reason I had, but I forgot it. I'm sure I'll remember it later, though.
Gen 7 can't come soon enough!
