There are no clones in the anime

The most common complaint in the series is how characters are "clones" of each other. Some of those complaints include the idea that Trip is a Paul clone, Bianca is a Barry clone, Oshawott is a Piplup clone, Dawn is a May clone and most recently Serena is a Dawn clone. All those comparisons are nothing but shallow and hollow attempts at the fandom to try and bring down a character they don't like. Quite frankly it's rude and insulting to the characters themselves to say such ridiculous things. Anime characters in all don't copy each other but they are characterized by certain tropes and archetypes. Following the same trope or archetype doesn't make one character a clone of the other in fact it's just a way to portray and flesh out the archetypes in different ways. Unless it is said that they are straight up trying to duplicate a character any claims of characters being clones of another is just ignorant, silly and pretty much rude.
No offence intended.
