He shouldn't because the early Johto release episodes were painful to go through as they contrived plots to nicely get rid of Ash's Pokemon, would hate to see that repeated over and over.
If Ash just tossed aside Pokemon after they'd done a job, he'd be Paul.
There's no point in releasing any of the Unova Pokémon now because they will all be stored in the PC when Decolora ends anyway. In fact, I think they should use this last filler arc to give them a last hurrah before that happens.
A better solution would be the writers not making Ash catch Pokémon they have no intention to write about in future generations. Keep him with a team of 6 (or 7 Pokémon at max) and we are done.
No. Why should he? They can easily be stored with Oak. And he should try to use every pokemon sometime.
I know all your secrets!
BECAUSE I AM THE SPYPITOAD!
I wasn't aware he had Pokémon he had no intention of using again?
I honestly prefer him catching more than six or seven... but I would prefer to see better rotation and more in depth look at his Pokémon. My opinion is give him the capture amount of Best Wishes... but give his Pokémon the depth that they got in DP. Also I don't mind some releases as long as they are done right. The releases of Butterfree and Lapras felt natural and weren't contrived. I wouldn't mind more releases like those as long as they didn't overdo it.
Also I don't think Ash ever plans on not using any of his pokemon again, to him they are all his friends and he will likely rotate them in and out during filler like he did with Battle Frontier, although I wish he did have better rotation.
Professor Oak wouldnt have all of those other pokemon to make scenes for new openings nor would he have more pokemon to amusingly injure him with running gags such with Muk
He can catch as many pokemon as he wants. Just because he catches new ones and don't use the older ones doesn't mean he should get rid of them. If that'd happen then people would be saying he was cruel. So I rather he just be like other trainers and catch as many as he can.
Keep all of your Pokémon in a lab with an old man and a wuss, and take them from him every 250 episodes because you feel like it.
That's how you treat your partners, kids. JK.
Seriously, one of the best things about the BW series I'd wish they'd have implemented is the idea of rotation. It'd be nice to see Ash to rotate his Pokémon around from all of the regions next series.

I think the whole "pure advertisement of new Pokemon" aspect really hinders the show. Dumping all his Pokemon except for Pikachu at the lab made sense the first time he went to Houen, because there was actual good plot development that went with it (Houou, Shigeru starting anew, and whatnot).
Every other time though, it's like, why the hell do you even bother, Satoshi? Use your BAMFing Pokemon at the lab more than once in a while, man!
He could've potentially used so many of his older Pokémon in the Unova (Isshu) League. Then again, we all know how that went, though. -____-
Still, I have a feeling he would've done significantly better considering the huge arsenal of Pokémon he has now.
Tauros that he never uses and them BAM, uses it in BF? or the Noctowl he didn't really use much and then BAM, uses it in the league and wins him a figth.
Again no thats idiotic.
If the next league is an old pokemon are used league, Boldore, Palpitoad or anything else might get a chance of being used just like the other old pokemon got used before.
Also Charizard and Primeape aren't released, they are in training, Charizard can be called just like any of his other pokemon, its just to Liza instead of Oak, as for Priemeape we have no idea.
Most definitely not, I personally think that Ash should rotate his Pokemon between his team and Oak, much like his Unova team, rather than just dumping every Pokemon he owns except Pikachu at Oaks, never to be seen or used ever again and using ONLY the Pokemon from the current generation (save for Pikachu and occasionally Charizard).
What I want is for him to constantly rotate his team rather than just using the same team for the entire generation.
