Instead of doing one examination of Ash, I decided to divide it up into 4 parts, to cover each saga. Ash is rather different in each one, and because it'd keep me from writing one giant wall on Ash and each incarnation works best when stood on its own, rather than being compared to past Ash's.
But instead of that, I decided to cover my favorite Ash moments in BW. Ash does get a lot of crap, and sometimes it is deserved. But he doesn't deserve every bad thing said about him, and these

Okay, I'm letting bias slip into this one. It's personal, bitch.
Let's step away from the main characters, instead focusing on one of Ash's rivals. Here we have a rather quirky choice; She's based on a character from the BW games, but with a few noticeable changes in the way she acts. Will this girl shine like a star, or will she burn out over time?
Here's Bianca, coming at you!

I probably should have started with this one first, since I compared Dawn to her repeatedly in the last examination. To better understand Dan and the characters to come, it's best to tackle her sooner than later.
This character was under a lot of pressure just for existing. Replacing a long-time cast member, she is the first replacement character (after Tracey, but no one cares about Tracey.) But was her existence a step in the right direction, or just a fizzle that continued the show's

To start things off, I will examine a character who is, by far, my least favorite main character. However, I will try to be as unbiased as I can with this, but I will drop a few opinionated remarks from time to time. I'll also have be focusing on my own take on the character, suggesting some fanon to fill in some blanks, and see where that gets us. I'll consult Bulba's pages on the characters, but I'll try to put my own spin on things.Please tell me of any errors or concerns you may have.
