The dub is irrelevent. What matters is how the original version classifies it.
One of the XY specials was dubbed as the finale for the dub season XYZ (dub title Legends of X, Y and Z), but wasn’t produced as a regular season episode so I agree with this.
Ash looks so ugly! Bring back the XY art style!!!
Budget constraints/lack of animators.

Edit: What I was trying to say here was my reasoning for why the animation in the Pokemon anime hasn't been as good since the XY series ended. Though I do agree it's the style itself that's the problem. I guess it's because, in my opion at least, that Sugimori's design for the (human?) characters isn't as good as it used to be.

I don't really see the problem with Ash's Journeys design to begin with. It looks fine and there's nothing particularly ugly with how he looks in that image either. Maybe it helps that I don't think that Ash's XY design is the absolute best either, but I don't understand the complaints beyond hyping up XY some more.
