    Default Will Ash still be the main character in Generation VI?

    I stopped watching the anime many years ago as I only play the games now. However, I was wondering if Ash will become a Pokemon Master in the N arc. It is my opinion that anime has gone the wrong route and finally replacing Ash will move the series forward.

    Probably, as much as I wish his story will end.

    Maybe there's some small bit of hope they'll do a World Tournament at the end of the N arc to be Ash's finale.

    I see no reason why they'd replace him now.

    A fresh start on a new generation of handhelds is as good a time as any.

    Ash did not get replaced from GBC to GBA, nor GBA to DS.

    Never will happen.

    Maybe I misinterpreted this.

    I would love for Ash to be replaced. As much as I liked him in the early days of the anime, nowadays every season is just a rehash and he's learning lessons he learned forever ago. A time skip would be awesome, with an older Ash as a secondary character. I think that would be a great way to tie in the older seasons while still bringing in a new face.

    If they didn't do that when they moved from GB/GBC to GBA when Advanced started or with the move from GBA to the DS in DP, then they aren't going to do that for moving onto the 3DS.

    Ash isn't going anywhere. There's just no reason, for the writers and marketing team at least, to replace the lead character after so many years. He'll be the main character for the next series.

    He'll most likely be the main character until pokemon as a whole ends. Because Pikachu

    Well yeah. He can't be a Pokemon master without knowing all 1000 Pokemon the future gens will throw out... Plus isn't Ash like the human mascot of Pokemon?

    @Ash's Battle Coach. That's true. Pikachu is extremely popular and ell known. He's like one of the most recognized cartoon characters in existence. He has a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade, for goodness' sakes.

    Ash is the main human for the show, past, present, and future

    And this time, he's getting the new guy's sunglasses and (most likely) a Chespin

    Back then they didn't switch up the cast much. As we moved to Gen III they only experimented with removing Misty, the rest of the Kanto cast remained the same. When DP came along they did the same thing and introduced the next female lead.

    Its only with BW that they finally severed all ties with Brock (and the original trio), and stopped putting Team Rocket in every episode. If this is TR's final saga, its possible they're severing all ties with the original series characters once and for all.

    I don't really see how getting rid of the other characters means it's more likely for Ash to go. Unlike those other characters, the story primarily revolves around him and even if they do get rid of Team Rocket, that isn't going to change. He's been around for over fifteen years and I don't think that being the only original series character left, if Team Rocket does leave, is going to affect his role as the main lead. I understand why people want him to be replaced, but it just isn't going to happen at this point.
