You seem to be a Big Precure fan !
And Doki Doki Precure does getting better rating then Pokemon .
So I was wondering , Doesn't Precure doesn't seem a little Darker then Pokemon ???
Shouldn't that be a proof that there nothing wrong with newer protagonist & a little darker plot like Pokemon .
No , Everyone of those Anime stuff hate Ash & Pikachu!
They just using Iris's B2W2 role to further humiliate Ash!
If they love Ash then they would never let him be inferior to a Rookie because that's the worst humiliation!
I mean , Can you imagine Cynthia or Paul losing to a Rookie that cause they start all over again like Ash!
Pikachu already establish himself as the worst Pokemon to start a Journey with!
I wish Ash had a ''N'' like rival in Unova instate of Trip!
Now to think of it,
It would be super cool if a Villain get involve in League conference and Ash save's the world by winning the league!
May be in Next League!
Although I'm not sure I will be watching that!
Oh , I think it would be cool Ash has a Antagonistic Female rival who cool , Calm & fair but somehow working for the bad guy!
May be , A girl version of ''N'' who also think human are abusing pokemon and Pokemon should be free.
Since , Anime & Game are in different universe , N probably might not exist!
So I guess there no wrong if writer bring a girl to do the similar role ''N'' did but in Champion league or World tournament!
