The number 1 thing the anime needs is to drop Ash. I'm pretty sure the only person who loves Ash is the person who produces the anime.
The idiot who wins everything with "the power of friendship" despite being nearly as stupid as when he started his journey is old. Ash is the definition of someone who has destiny on his side, the 2nd movie even labels him as a destined child. Every battle he wins feels undeserved.
Typical battle in anime: Enemy has either superior Pokemon or clear battle plan that is highly effective and attacks Ash's Pokemon repeatedly while Ash's Pokemon is unable to land a hit. Ash's Pokemon falls down. Ash shouts "I believe in you!", Ash's Pokemon gets up and wins battles with a single, frontal attack.
1. The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. 2. They're all complacent sheeple. <==]-<(-_o)>-[==>
