Well user, when there are literally thousands of other people who want the exact same thing as you, you're gonna run into competition.

M8 he's been at it for more than 20 years, he should have improved by now.

Truly the Cleveland Brown of anime MCs.

So they can reuse the iconic character forever.
Ash is merely a produce presenter now. He doesn't even qualified as a character.

Blake Lee

But time doesn't really pass in the pokemon universe.

He gets pretty damn far for a ten year old that does no minmaxing whatsoever, and whose strategy consists of "i have no strategy"

Ian Cox
Ian Cox

he's already above champion-tier
he beat a champion and almost beat a guy who was also way above the E4's level

Didn't evolve his Pikachu into the superior Raichu

Explain this bullshit

Julian Garcia

Raichu is only good for Double Battles, and the alolan form is superior.

Maybe Ash can tackle the Showderp league and win.

he should have improved by now

he does though, he get better placements in each championships and last seasons he was btfo shit left and right, including the champion's ace.

He raised his pokemon to be useful in life over pure combat

Ian Nguyen

How is the SM anime so far? XY was surprisingly watchable apart from the monster-of-the-week shit.

Mason Richardson

His Pikachu’s level resets constantly.

Jose Jones

It's complete shit. Avoid it at all cause.

Jaxon Davis
Jaxon Davis

Because the writers have to cockblock him when they see him getting stronger.

They had to pull out a trainer with a Darkrai and Latios in order to stop him from winning Sinnoh.

They had to reduce his intelligence in Unova.

And lastly they had to pull out the Gary Stu that is Alan for Kalos.

Lucas Martinez

It looks like he has a legendary this time, so he stands a chance now.

Austin Campbell

The writers will do anything to make sure he doesn't win.

Tobias should've been proof enough. He was asspulled into exsistence and then erased the moment he won, simply to assure Ash didn't win.

The faggot will need to surpass plot itself to do it.

Cameron Moore

It started weak, but its getting good (compared to pokémon of course)

Austin Butler

The writers are not the problem. The executives of the pokemon company are that tell the writers what they can and can't do.

He will never win a single championship. This much is a fact and you need to keep it on your head always. No matter how many times you come back to watch this, it will all be the same again

Jaxon Gutierrez

He never fully evolves his pokemon and focuses more on befriending them than actually training them.

Mason Clark

Whats bad about it

Noah Sanders

actually goes to the last league with a team of fully evolved pokemon except for his Pikachu
still loses
his Pikachu gives the best performance out of all of them managing to defeat 2 pseudos and hurting the opponent's ace the most

Angel Cox

I don't even watch the anime which is why I said looks like.

Cameron Anderson

loses when Pikachu chokes
loses when Pikachu doesn’t choke
loses with a fully evolved team
loses when he doesn’t evolve his team
I’m starting to see a pattern here.

Benjamin Cooper

tfw the only reason i'm watching pokemon this time is so that i'm invested more into it when ash loses at the league
it's like the Olympics except fun

Kevin Harris

Well, imagine how awkward things would get for the writers if he ever won anything.
Why would he still travel the world instead of settling down?

Robert Hernandez

this and Bleach ending in the same day
The amount of butthurt broke all the scales

Aaron Cruz

Tobias and Alan were dropped by the E4. The moral of Pokemon is that no matter how good you are, your waifu is going to get cucked by the old men in power. Ash exists only to instill this hierarchy of beta from an early age.

Andrew Scott
Andrew Scott

He constantly leaves boxed his high level monsters and starts fresh with low level unevolved ones everytime and his pikachu seems to level down after every league ends considering how sometimes he fights evenly with pseudo legendaries, yet in the next region he jobs to a rookie trainer pokemon.

That and he is easily one of the worst trainers in the setting only carried by sheer luck and many of his opponents being just as bad. Goddamit fucker, vague orders like dodge and attack aren't strategy.

Aaron Gomez
Aaron Gomez

Pikachu is good nowhere

Ian Wright

user, I...

William Thomas
William Thomas

To be fair, this is a world where “Dodge it” is enough to make Pokémon sidestep Swift.

Brody Hughes
Brody Hughes

It is pretty sad how little strategy matters there. It's pretty much all about having a pokemon with more raw power or type advange than the other in most battles. That or decided by who is the one who mindlessly shouts to dodge more, because just saying dodge works almost everytime in constrast to calling an attack and pray your attack overpowers or hits before the opponent.

Ian Cox
Ian Cox

tfw some people learned game theory based on thinking about what moves to make in an attempt to predict if the opponent will tag out or not

Joshua Hill

Thank you user. i needed that laugh.

Carter Rodriguez

he beat a champion
You wish.

Nathaniel Wright

He doesn't even qualified as a character
Tell that to all the blithering idiots who defend SM and shit on XY by using the argument of "b-but Ash actually HAS a personality there".

Zachary Sanders

If he can't win by literally fusing with the meme frog through fucking magic he will absolutely never win otherwise. Shit is crazy as hell

Charizard fainted instead of Greninja in the correct timeline. We're just in the a timeline someone did a very sloppy job tampering with and only changed the last ten seconds of the Kalos league, leaving us with the absurd mess we got.

Jeremiah Ortiz

Robert Bell

Ehh, the japs themselves got angry aparently

Sebastian Kelly
Sebastian Kelly

I don't get why people are so hung up on Charizard beating Greninja. Sure, the fight was a big fucking slap in the face, but everybody knows that Mega Chari X is not weak to water. And considering the Charizard was Alan's ace who he used against all those Megas, he was obviously high-leveled.

Chase Hall
Chase Hall

Why a lot of people expected something different? Ash losing the league is pretty much his main gimmick besides randomly getting selective amnesia and undo all his progress in the next region, made even more retarded when after several leagues, he enrolls in a fucking school

Luke Rodriguez
Luke Rodriguez

No, because he chooses to restart his team every time he gets btfo instead of destroying everyone with his top mons.

Juan Baker
Juan Baker

Is this legal?

Grayson Clark
Grayson Clark

Because it would mean the end of a billionaire franchise or changinf the MC. Do you faggots know how hard is changing an MC of a huge as fuck franchise? How hard not to fucking ruin everything? Shit like Inazuma Eleven and Yokai Watch fucked it up because audiences didn't like the new MC, and when they tried to back pedal it was too late. If it's not fucking broken don't try to fix it. Ash it's never ever gonna win a league.

Lucas Powell
Lucas Powell

Replacing ash could only benefit the anime. Unlike Nathan of youkai watch fame who worked well with the dynamics of his recurring youkai companions and friends, Ash pretty much has no personality besides being the embodiment of the i wanna be the champion motto, and he always drops his companions with every new season, only him and pikachu who hasn't have any personality since the first episodes of the first season not being hit by the reset button.

Gabriel Nguyen
Gabriel Nguyen

Except his Kalos team is probably the strongest team he has ever had.

Benjamin Wright

that chart
SM
WHERE THE FUCK IS BEST GIRL?

Josiah Mitchell
Josiah Mitchell

because just saying dodge works almost everytime
Eh, not really. In the anime it comes down to the pokemon's speed compared to it's opponent, or if it's trapped or not. Dodge doesn't work even almost all the time.

Logan Diaz
Logan Diaz

I feel like Pikachu is a bigger problem. There 807 different Pokemon but they still have to shill the same rat 20 years later.

Imagine having to come up with like a hundred different ways for it to win fights.

Kevin Butler
Kevin Butler

Gen1: Whatever the fuck
Gen2-3: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Thunder, Iron Tail
Gen3-4: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Volt Tackle
Gen5-7: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Elec Ball

Robert Adams
Robert Adams

But pikachu's battles are fairly simple. They always consist of using a standard electric attack, use iron tail if that doesn't work and have quick attack as an all purpose shit that does both attack and evasion at the same time. And then there were a few miscellaneous moves he get in some seasons

Ethan Howard
Ethan Howard

It hasn't been that way for a while. Nowadays, Ash uses on-the-fly bullshit strategies.

Trick Room is a Psychic type move and X-Scissor's a Bug type move so clearly X-Scissor should break Trick Room
It works

Jeremiah Robinson
Jeremiah Robinson

Wow, he still does bullshit like that? Last time I saw him bullshit were the horn as weak point and the thunder armor

Grayson Ramirez
Grayson Ramirez

tobias

Easton Sullivan
Easton Sullivan

It's his entire battle strategy.

Use Flare Blitz underground to burn away Toxic Spikes
Use Volt Tackle to literally run across a laser
Use Iron Tail to jump across Rock Slide/Draco Meteor
Pikachu can apparently run on electricity now

Isaiah Foster
Isaiah Foster

It's the the third best series in only 50 episodes and barely has any filler to speak of. Brock and Misty coming back in their most elite forms with mega evolutions was too great for words as well.

Evan Fisher
Evan Fisher

I can't believe they left her behind

Sebastian Adams
Sebastian Adams

What the fuck. That's not even standard fighting anymore, he's straight up shitting on the laws of the world and it works because the universe bends backwards to make it work.

To be fair, hard to have fillers when the entire season is pretty much of the slice of life format and if we go by the conventional adventure format, most of the season was filler

Logan Taylor
Logan Taylor

It kills itself with one volt tackle, its garbage. Also, fuck pikachu for making volt tackle exclusive.

Robert Anderson
Robert Anderson

Well, to be fair, the show's never actually cared about restricting itself to the game mechanics. Occasionally, Ash's strategies involve taking advantage of real-world logic and applying it to battles.

Jaxson Reed
Jaxson Reed

I don't see much real world logic in pretty much flying during a volt tackle, breaking psychic rooms with a regular physical technique or the infamous thunder armor. What he lately does does breaks both game and real world mechanics.

Connor Jenkins
Connor Jenkins

In the show, Trick Room is a psychic room that traps the Pokemon in a space where speeds are reversed. The thing is, if they're trapped in the room, then that means it can be interacted with.

David White
David White

And yet, even with all that mechanics breaking, he still can't win a league.

Fuck, not even with a special snowflake legendary frog.

Lincoln Miller
Lincoln Miller

Ash is a fucking moron. That's all there is to it.

Ethan Smith
Ethan Smith

Kind of, but that collage leaves out the fact that the thread consisted purely of posts calling OP a faggot before it got deleted like an hour later.

Austin Anderson
Austin Anderson

Most of XY is just pure boring filler with a shitty villain subplot so it shouldn't even be compared to SM where things actually happen. Adventure isn't needed here to prolong the plot.

Noah Stewart
Noah Stewart

That chart uses pictures from the initial poster and the very first trailer we got, I don't think it had even been confirmed she was going to be a relevant character at the time.

Mason Young
Mason Young

How things happens? I watched SM and absolutely nothing happens most of time, the only relevant episodes being the ones where some pokemon have a mini story arc like Litten's.

Joseph Cox
Joseph Cox

I think he was being sarcastic.

Ayden Perez

Might be. I thought he was being serious as XY genuinely had a shitty villain subplot with its fair share of filler

Lincoln Ortiz

he beat the kalos champion's strongest pokemon

Lincoln Baker

they were smart
as soon as serena cut her hair, the ratings dropped hard and pokemon rarely made it into the top 10 anymore
SM put pokemon back into the top 10 and japs actually seem to care about lillie, since her episodes get the highest ratings

lillie >>>>>>>>>>> serena

Ian Gutierrez
