Am I the only one who loves the fact that people mock Alola Ash, yet despite that he not only defeated a seemingly undefeated Incineroar, but also Tapu Koko himself, both in the same battle? That is some sweet irony right there.
My favorite fire starters are Charizard and Incineroar

they'll just pretend it doesnt count.

Part of me doesn't blame the mocking bc Ash barely did real training this season.

If that's the case, then the writers have done an abysmal job at that, as the very first episode indicated that it would not be "an episodic kodomo anime". You can't make mistakes like that.


Plans changed. The anime was originally planned to run for 80 episodes and one movie, ending with a climatic final battle between Ash and Gary in the Indigo League.

But then the series became popular, and was extended to last indefinitely.

They didn't know that Pokemon would still be going over 20 years later back then or that there would be five (soon to be six) more Pokemon animes after that.

We legit saw him training his Pokemon more than we did in either of the previous two series

Also we've got a summary now for SM's final episode

Ash has decided to return to Pallet Town. However, he can't quite bring himself to tell the others... In addition, the time for Team Rocket to part ways with Mimikyu and the others is rapidly approaching.

I am not knocking it or anybody. But, he seemed to battle more last season also train. But hopefully the summary is real and not one of those he thinks about it but doesn't do it situations

Wasn't the original plan that the pokemon would revolt and push Pikachu as an unwilling leader, then Meowth would some sort of mediator, and Ash would realize how childish his dream was?

That was Takeshi Shudo’s original plan, yes. But thanks to executive meddling he sadly couldn’t bring his original vision to life and parted ways with the show after he was screwed over once more in movie 3 (he wanted Molly’s mother to be deceased but an extra scene with her was added at the end of the movie).

Shudo also originally wanted the third movie to be about a T-Rex fossil coming to life and going on a rampage.

Amusingly, the anime staff didn't completely forget the idea, since we kind of got that with movies 5 and 6. Just not an actual T-Rex.

Realistically the next saga will only live up to its potential if Ash sees his old friends or companions again. Otherwise revisiting old regions is pointless.

I honestly think the Misty/Brock cameos in SM clued the writers in that people want to see past main characters instead of them just being forgotten forever, so I guess we'll see what happens.

This, I also kinda have a feeling this would happen, same with Ash's old Pokémon like Infernape, Krookodile, Quilava, Gible, Noivern, etc.
