What was the point of Ash "mastering" becoming a Pokémon Master? The whole finale feels more like "what if Gen 3-8 Pokémon existed when Ash and travelling with Brock and Misty", than it does a finale.
Honestly, this is how I would have done it: Ash gets tired of being bombarded with people...
What's with this series? Why isn't Takeshi a doctor anymore? Is this "finale" all meant to take place in an AU or did Takeshi seriously get fired? Also it would have been nice to see him with a Nurse Joy GF or something or at least grow up a bit.
I hate that it's Pikachu vs. 2 because that means instead of Sirfetch'd getting victories, it means that Pikachu gets the most amount of victories AND the final win. :/
What the hell happened to Brock's cameo?
Eww, why is there a break on the 7th? This means as soon as the league ends, SV will begin with no farewell episode in between. Either the Leon battle is only 2 episodes or it's a full 3 with a rushed ending as Ash leaves for SV land.
Part 1: 21st
Part 2: 28th
Part 3: 4th + potential last...
Or even worse... Ash hypes his Pokémon up for the Leon battle, only for it to be a single 1 Vs. 1 battle with GMax Pikachu against GMax Charizard. What makes this even sadder is poor G Max Gengar won't be used.
Apparently the GS Ball was meant to have Celebi in it and instead of Pokémon 4ever, we were meant to see Ash's dad. I feel like the apricorn balls were just given away so we can forget about the GS Ball. Brock never brings up his Heavy Ball either.
I'd re-write the last time Paul showed up in the anime.
He'd use these Pokémon instead of a wannabe champions team: Ursaluna, Torterra and Gliscor. He could have then revealed that he's going to become a Ground Type Gym Leader.
As for Ursaluna, just add the Hisuian evolution items into the main...
I'd honestly give Paul an Ursaluna. He could have evolved Ursaring during the space-time mishap, showing more than just Ash and co. were involved in it. That way instead of using a wannabe champions team, he could have shown off Ursaluna, Torterra and Gliscor by becoming a Ground type Gym Leader.
Here's the thing: I liked it more when Goh JUST had capturing as his thing instead of neglecting his Pokémon we're supposed to care about. Would have been a lot better than the rushed Sobble evolutions and Grookey. Maybe he could have branched out into capturing Pokémon for professors to give to...
