Going on Youtube was not helping because they do alot abridges about Kanto, almost never about anything after that and I wasn't seeing how changing was a bad thing. The show was getting mature which made sense because I was growing up too. I was a kid when Kanto came out but I wasn't stupid. I like the show after Ash starting battling seriously starting in Johto. So yes, in some ways for me it had improved. I wouldn't want to go back just for a few characters not doing anything, bad animation and Ash acting so childish just to remain funny. This is why I didn't feel BW Ash s doing it for me. DP Ash was really spot on. For my age that is.
