Been awhile i posted blog, so i decided to make new one. Today im going to talk about double standards in pokemon fandom when it comes to character development.
We all know May and Ash are usually praised for apparently great character development they went through.Same goes for Dawn in story sense being viewed she got most fleshing out toward her dreams, although character wise she didn't changed much..
For Ash in general people view his maturity in Hoenn and Sinnoh
It seems to me that certain number of fandom seems to be dead set convinced how this character will never return again in any shape or form, so i decided to write small blog about it explaining why such assumption doesn't hold ground on so many levels.
First and foremost their main argument is "character was absent for too long,its too late for him to return". Its true that Misty was absent for unusually long period of time(6 years and counting) but that doesn't mean writers
Is it just me or have fans became less attached to characters over time?
I remember back in day when Misty or May left cast how most people were disappointed, sometimes even shocked being sad to see their favorites go. Likewise whenever there was made tread about it in past majority was more welcomed toward their return than not wanting to see more, feeling how past companions weren't fleshed out as much as they could have been with there being left room to do much more. Which in reality
I noticed that in most cases when character develops changing a bit personality wise instead of people appreciating his growth they usually pertain it to regression viewing characters as becoming "boring and uninteresting".
Like with May for example.
She started out as girl who didnt liked pokemon just wanting to travell,later on learning to like them realizing what she wants to do with life becoming coordinator growing into more mature and selfconfident character

Answer is quite simple.Many people grew up with Ash,Misty and Brock having found memories of group which started whole pokemon show in first place achieving iconic status over the years being most recognized group in world.
Reason why many fans not only from 90s era but also those who watched older series later on want them back is because they miss colorful dynamic and chemistry this group had over the course of original series.From Ashs naivete and stupidity,to Mistys sarcastic
