    Duplica

    Position: Recurring character/Companion

    Why? Duplica is characterized by being an imitation master, now that other forms of imitation exist in pokemon beyond Ditto, it would be nice to see her deal with other forms of imitation beyond what she is used to.

    It would also be nice to see Ash have a companion that is someone he knows from his past, but has never traveled with.

    I'd would bring back the old Misty back I want to see her travel again to many lands I miss her from this time I was shocked to see her go from there. :/

    Shinji please. As long as he remains in character I dont mind how he appears. I'd be happy for most opd characters reappearing since it would make their fans happy. That said the new characters are more important.

    If anybody was to return I think Max should get the option. He could play the second main role instead of someone like Clemont if that were to happen but I doubt it. He was the only one that never got a pokemon or his own journey to do whatever he wanted to do as far as a goal is concerned.

    I don't think that alone will help make them the characters what they once were, even if they return, or the anime what it used to be. It would definitely be a step in the right direction for the series, though.

    I'd like Misty to go back to her original goal. I'd be okay with Brock's current goal, but I did like his original goal to become a breeder much better myself. Gary would be great as a Pokemon Research and Professor like his grandpa, and I liked that goal myself. Ritchie was okay as a rival and worked well in that role.
    I have to agree, I don't oppose misty coming back really, as long as she goes back to her original goal and as long as brock and misty are'nt walking wallpaper, while ash gets to do the fun and action things.

    Same here. I will be fine with it as long writers provide plausible reason doing something worthwhile out of it.Not that i didn't enjoyed in Misty and Brock role(at least until DP) for what they were having memorable moments, but i always felt their joirney should have had more substance to it making them feel more relevant. As far as their careers go.

    I think there exists potential to create some well written and cogent arc to develop Misty character more. I could see and like her leaving gym after learning everything she could there to advance dream of becoming master of water types going on next level as trainer by entering events which use water to full potential and test out if you know how to adapt to current situation and use terrain to your advantage. Whether its underwater battling, races, battles on dry land where you have to innovate etc.Learn about new kind of water pokemon and other types, ways to upgrade them(like mega evolutiojn) and meet other experts for which beyt way is in seeing world and experiencing other cultures being person which enjoys traveling.
    Or try to become E4 member or apprentice(she did idoplize Lorelei) which fits her since they are best mono type specialists in world battling special examinators which would deem if she is worthy enough to reccomend it to league committee(just a thought seeming like logical way for progression), explore more on her past like family, fears from bugs, learn how to develop defense against electric or grass types or establish closer bond with pokemon growing emotionally.


    And If Brock ever returns his new carer of pokemon doctor imo provides new fresh material to take his story in several different directions.If anything he can travel to other pokemon centres to learn new things, handle challenging cases, training purposes etc and meet other specialists informing him about new ways of healing and poke treatment while having nspecial exams where he could maybe battle to determine if he knows how to properly take care of pokemon(in Kanto we saw nurse Joy battling in ultimate test). I still think writers could revamp Brocks character to make him more interesting by revealing more of his past,starting to focus on some of his interest,introduce missing links from his history and issues which werent brought up before.

    I don't know if writers will ever have motivation to do such thing, but i would like to see Misty and Brock joining Ash on one more journey. They had great interaction which brought humor,tension, conflict and everything which is needed to make quality dialogue between characters.

    And in my opinion it would be intriguing to see friendship between them restored now that they are familiar with each other and take it to new direction, hitting road for one last adventure. It would add nice twist to show and make many people happy(i know i would be).

    What? Is Clemont confirmed as a companion?

    No but if Max was to return over a new companion I was hoping he could. But I would love it more if Clemont was going to be.

    Misty indeed. Her departure was so unjustified and idiotic that didn't make sense. I'm sorry to all May- Dawn lovers (i don't hate anyone), but to see her leaving like that; with her unfulfilled ambitions and her great potential was to me a great mistake. It was interesting to have a strong willed- slightly clumsy but determined Female character's point of view in the anime. The Whirl cup was a little example of the potential of the character in the story withouth neccesearly taking over Ash's main role (for those who think that that would have been a way too possible outcome) What better than a friend-adventure companion soon to become a gym leader to travel with you? The adventures the 3 of them could have gone trough (meanning Brock too) could have been magnificent. Not to mention all the "flashback" episodes they could have made later on.
    Not to mention the skill-growth we could have been able to see in them (if, for example, they were still togheter) Now, if they had come this far it would be nostalgyc and glorious to review the firsts seasons- remembering their roots and their firsts adventures, etc.

    So, despite the cheesynes, i would bring Misty and Brock back for sure.

    This.

    People, those characters had their time and we should move on. I'm especially unnerved at all the people who want Misty AND Brock back as traveling companions and Gary and Ritchie as rivals. You want to see that? Watch the OS.

    We have our Ash-tachi for this series. Accept it. If some older characters come back for a few episodes (the Mega-Evolution situation is practically begging for May to return), fine. But let's not add needless characters to the cast for sake of nostalgia/pandering. It's bad enough we're forever stuck with Ash and the TRio without turning this into OS 2.0...

    We don't want a repeat of what happened with Dawn in BW, now do we?

    Iris and Cilan should return for a mini-arc just to catch up as per tradition. That's about it. There are characters I hope never leave, but I don't want anyone to come back once their stories are concluded.

    I understand your point but, what you say suggest that you are sattisfied with the anime now which you are in your right to; but i can't get pass the amazing quiality drop that sems to never end- and im possitive that adding new "faces" of people who will become irrelevant every 80 episodes (or so) is not the answer. Yes, they have changed their target audience; so is all right to assume that that's the reason why it has changed so much- but i refuse to accept that after all the fansites created around the world (or at least Japan only) claimming for Pokemon to be as worth-watching as it used to be; producres still don't realise that the initial vision of the "show" left millions of people hooked on it, just look at us here; and yet most of us are not 7, 8 years old . Many of us are attatched to pokemon since our teenagehood or infances- (imagine the impact it would have had if at least the scrypts hadn't changed as much as they have) meanning, that to keep a certain audience for over 16 seasons must mean that they did something right in first place, doesn't it? specially if most of the people of that particulary audience complain about a bunch of factors that left pokemon as it is now. However!, ignoring all this, the only solution they find is to spit new combinations of eye colours and hairdos every season and still not get the world-impact thay aim for.
    I have never worked at television before, i have no right to tell anybody how to do their job (i don't even have knowladge about what it takes to keep that sort of a work up) but coincidences my friends, do not exist (that i can assure)

    So, all in all, I think that to keep up with this facade of "nah, let's just let them go and present some new 10-14 year old unagaeble vampires that satisfy only an audience that lasts 3 years" is not the solution for pokemon to become what it could become. Wasted potential is one of the things i just can't swallow

    I don't know if this has been said but I would like May to return with her Blaziken so she can Mega Evolve it. I don't know exactly what role I want her to play maybe she could be around for a few episodes like Dawn in BW?? I just would really like to see May again
