Also, I liked BW Ash because he was different to DP Ash. In my first post I call BW a fresh breeze, this is because some of the changes it made and because DP Ash felt too serious for me sometimes, I didn't really recognize Ash anymore at times.
Well, that's mainly how I think of BW's formula too. At least we can agree on something.So, tell me what is BW's formula? To me, BW's formula is "A fast paced saga like the OS, which doesn't have boring fillers like DP. Entertaining characters who actually have some decent interaction outside talking battle strategies. The main character catching more than just six Pokemon and rotating them.The lack of JJM appearing every episode and make me roll my eyes everytime they blast off.." These are the things DP lacked, and BW gave us. This is what I call BW's formula.
That's okay, but you might wanna read my first post on this thread. Maybe I was not clear enough, but from what I've seen here I think some or most people dislike BW because of the changes it made compared to DP. Others dislike parts of BW for other reasons, I understand that.So, do I hate BW for any of these? No, not at all. Just take a look at my previous post and see if I said anything contradictory.
Yes, Ash regressing is just one thing that BW did different as compared to DP. DP had Ash improve as a Trainer, made him look somewhat more mature, while BW had him start all over again, looking more like a rookie starting on his first journey. Quite the opposite, if you ask me. But what, am I trying to make BW sound much worse? Why? Because I underline Ash regressed in BW? As much as I like BW, I can't deny Ash is more like a rookie trainer than an advanced trainer in BW. But as I said I am just not bothered by this really. What am I supposed to say then?You on the other hand say "Ash Regressing is what BW did different." You are supposed to be supporting BW and instead trying to make it sound much worse. No writer in the world will regress his character and call it being different. That's not being different, that's.......oh well, I am not going to say it.
I guess we just have different ways of seeing things. I see some of the things BW has done compared to DP as changes and also think this is why some people who liked DP dislike BW, you see this different. Sure, you can talk big and call over your friends and acquaintances of this and Serebii's forums to back up your points, but that won't make your point any more true or my point any less true. It's just a matter of perception, I think.
