I understand that it a kids show and all but they can seriously do better. Ash has gotten just plain stupid now, it like reverse character development or something. I was facepalming though the whole battle with Elesa...just HOW can you go through 4 regions of trainers,gym leaders,elite fours, and champions, and STILL not know the type weakness. Granted that they want to keep things intresting but that was a terrible way to to it, a person who's goal is to become pokemon master SHOULD KNOW THE POKEMON WEAKNESS BY NOW! On top of this he only brings one pokemon and actually has to go get another one...thats just stupid. It may seem like im picking on this one scene from the show, but its because highlights the main weakness (at least in my opinion) of the show..Ash.
Another thing is that other pokemon series clearly show that they could do better in the writing department. (Chronicals, Mystery Dungeon adaptations, the original, B/W 2's promo animation.) Why dose the main series suck so bad now, while all the other pokemon animation are are awsome? Espesially when they got so much to work with, but are simply not using it. This series is incredibly popular I think it deserves better than what it's getting TV wise. The only reason I watch even a little now is to see the animation of the pokemon themselfs, other than that the show is boring.
Dose any else feel this way or am I just a black sheep?
