Review JN147: The Rainbow and the Pokémon Master!

Remember the final episode of Arthur? Why didn't they show Kate (mentioned only by Buster, she would most likely be a teenager attending college), the Brain, Sue Ellen, Fern, Prunella, the Tough Customers, Emily, the Tibble Twins, Alberto and Vicita, and (since Bud does appear) Ladonna as adults like with Arthur himself, DW, Buster, Francine, Muffy, Binky and George?

Because it wasn't a good finale.
 
In terms of symbolism the cherry blossom trees at the end were a lovely touch. The end of one journey and the beginning of another which is also shown in how Ash finally leaves behind his old shoes and is wearing the new ones (shoes also having meaning in the Type Wild track the episode credits play).
 
As time move forward, we need to replace old shoes (Satoshi) with new ones (Riko).
 
Ash's final episode is not completed! There's something missing to conclude this final episode:
  • Giovanni telling to Matori to study the doomsday project information.
  • Team Rocket's doomsday project builded.

  • Officer Jenny saving Ash and Pikachu from the Team Rocket.
  • Team Rocket's Doomsday Pod arriving in Pallet Town.

  • Tracey shows to Gary a photo of the Team Rocket's doomsday project.

Why didn't the Japanese producers and writers try harder to bring all of Ash's old friends into the final episode? I always say because the final episode isn't complete without all of Ash's friends. The Japanese producers and writers don't want to continue with Ash getting together with all his friends to fight Team Rocket, they don't want to plan Ash and Giovanni's final battle, they just keep ignoring all the plans. This episode is not completed guys! There's something missing in this final episode to conclude Ash's story: Team Rocket's Doomsday Project; Ash reuniting all of his old friends to fight against Team Rocket; Ash and Serena using the power energy stones to destroy the Team Rocket's Doomsday Machine; Pokémon Trainers celebrates Team Rocket's defeat; Ash and Serena kissing; 26 years in the future; Ash and all of his old friends are adults and having their own children.

You don't understand? I tried to make a message to the Oriental Light & Magic, but they had no answer. I just wish Ash would reunite with Serena in the final episode and get married soon! Why didn't the producers bring Serena in for the final episode? Why didn't Giovanni plan anything about Team Rocket's doomsday project? Why didn't Ash challenge Giovanni to a final battle? Why didn't Ash marry Serena? Why? Why? Why? Ash was supposed to get together with all his friends to fight Team Rocket, not for him to be alone all the time without friends. Ash is nothing without his old friends! Ash cannot complete his story without reuniting with his friends and defeating Team Rocket. Ash shouldn't be alone all the time, he should be with all his old friends! I'm saying Ash's final episode isn't complete! And I'm saying there's something missing to conclude Ash's final episode!

This final episode is not complete! Something is missing to complete this final episode! Ash reuniting all his old friends to fight Team Rocket, Ash challenging Giovanni to a final battle, Ash reuniting with Serena in Hoenn and getting married soon in Kanto!
