Instead of introducing one-dimensional characters every region in the anime...

How about Serena gets some actual character, stays with ash and we get a *gasp* boy as the once-a-region. Anything just to mix it up a bit. I'm so tired of the anime being so predicable, and it being for 7-year olds is not a good excuse.

It being an advertisement is an excuse, however.

The anime's purpose is advertise games and merchandise to kids.

Oh true. But they could at least make it a good advertisement. I've seen car insurance ads with a more engrossing plot line than this.

That's irrelevant.

The goal of anyone trying to make money should be maximum profit for minimal effort.

The anime in its current form is still making tons of money, so there is no point in changing it.

Serena's entire shtick being her having a crush on a moron who will never notice is extremely tiring. They really need to give her a reason to be around OTHER than that. It's pathetic.

Yes many people have requested Ash be replaced with a new character each season but they are not going to because writing a plot for idiot heroes is easy.

It's not Ash that can't be replaced. It's Pikachu, due to Pikachu being the mascot.

Pikachu is the real star. Having every trainer start with a Pikachu would be contrived as hell, so they just stick with Ash.

Lol, yeah I agree with u. I believe everything went downhill when Pokemon bw season started. Iris is the worst female lead. Cilan is terrible Brock replacement, those food puns tho... Anyway, back to Iris, she literally
serves no purpose. Trip is the worst rival yet. Many of the characters aren't worth remembering. I personally think that Bianca should of replaced Iris. It's beyond me why they broke the cycle of choosing rival female character/friend and picked Iris.

Well, hopefully the people that are giving Gamefreak millions of dollars will notice how little effort is put into it and demand something better. Honestly, this could go for all of nintendo or even the entire industry. IMO, we need another crash of 1983.

It's a great excuse.
