I'm trying to get things ready for my Mafia game(later in the year) are you going to be free then?
Weird thought of the day:
It's sometimes said there are infinite alternate universes.
That means there is one where the Pokémon anime changed protagonists in each series, and the protagonist was always the person who beat Ash in that series' league.
In Kanto we follow Richie, in Johto Harrison, Tyson in Hoenn, and so on. Ash is a recurring antagonist who always shows up near the end and usually has no personal connection to the main character before losing to them.
*In Kanto people note he seems like a worse version of our protagonist.
*People are a bit unsure during Sinnoh since Tobias was a huge Gary Stu in general. People are actually sort of rooting for Ash at this point.
*They wonder why he has some weird special Greninja during XY, but find it interesting that he suddenly takes an active role in the story, helping resolving Alain's Team Flare plot.

Then Gladion is the main character of the Sun and Moon anime, but the events are the same as in this universe so he loses to Ash. We then spend four episodes watching Ash battle with Kukui--it actually goes over quite well because Ash being one of the show's few recurring characters and his "never give up" attitude had won him a decent fanbase.
At this time in that universe, someone is writing a status update on forums.charmandercave.net about the alternate universe where each series followed Ash...
