One thing i've noticed in BW is that Trip, Bianca and now Kotetsu all have starter evolutions. What makes me mad is why give Ash all three starters if someone else was going to have the evolutions? Why can't Ash ever have fully grown evolution starters if he is going to catch them? This goes for Kanto and Johto. They almost letted Ash have all of them in DP but Empleon was given to Barry. If only Ash had it.
