You have no idea how much I wish to see an Anime Ark Where the Main Antagonist Misguide Ash's most closest and softest rival by using his insecurity and turn him into a Heartless pawn .
Then Ash and he has a Big Battle where both trainer get physically hurt .
Ash manage to defect him and get him back to sense .
Then he give that rival's unconscious body to one of his friend and goes to fight the main villain to take revenge for what that guy did to his friend and save the world .
But The Anime Writer will try something like that !
THEY WILL USE STUPID IDEA LIKE ''MAKING A COMPLETE ROOKIE SUPERIOR THEN ASH '' OR ''MAKE ASH LOSE THE LEAGUE TO A TOTAL IDIOT WHO DIDN'T EVEN REMEMBER TO BROUGHT A 6TH POKEMON IN FULL BATTLE'' RATHER THEN TRYING INTERESTING IDEA LIKE THIS !
Some idiot say that Idea like this are too mature for Kids !
When Digimon is for kids too and Digimon had their biggest toy sales during Digimon Xros war .
And Digimon Xros war is-
-Much more Mature & Darker then all other Pokemon series.
-The protagonist was a Child prodigy .
So , ''Little Kids'' and ''Merchandise'' isn't the right excuse for Pokemon Anime to have a pathetic story plot then Pokemon Adventure
I mean , What Pokemon Anime stuff think's .
That Japanise Kids are too weak to handle mature story plot like Pokemon Adventure & Digimon Xros war .
In a way , They are insulting the Children of their own country .
Pokemon Manga is better then Pokemon Anime and their is no excuse for Pokemon Anime to be worst then the Manga !
