Not trying to get all psychological about a 10-year-old that doesn't age, but really who do you think he really is?
I mean at the start of the series we see a rash, naive, rookie/beginning Pokemon Trainer with the goal of being a Pokemon Master and capturing all the Pokemon.
Over 10 years later however...
You can pretty much see where I'm getting at with this being that his character/personality is inconsistent at best with the writers basically revamping the series with every new region.
I mean I just feel like I don't BELIEVE in him and his dream anymore or am I the only one?
When he used to talk about being a master I was pumped! Like, its ok he lost I guess he'll come back better than ever. But over the years that phrasing got stale and repetitive with any growth we do see get swept under the rug when he challenges another region.
It doesn't help when rivals are more mature than he is given the experiences he has over them.
When seeing a new Pokemon he doesn't try to catch them adding to the whole "Gotta Catch Em All" trademark phrase that got dropped for good reason...
Overall, its a kid with a big heart who more often than not thinks with his heart rather than his head and on more than one occasion just does stupid s**t.
I just don't get the point anymore like where Ash is going or what he is really "fighting" for anymore. His mom is now used to him going from place to place but really for what purpose?
I'm beginning to believe in that Ash's Coma theory more and more every time I watch an episode of the BW series.
What do you make of Ash in who he is as a person? This spans from the 1st episode to the current Ash and to where he is headed (if he is in Gen 6...Lord knows most of us wish it was a new main character but it won't happen...)
