I did think at first in seeing May that she was not a good character, but she made me like her. I do miss Misty and think she should've been kept on Pokemon. I don't see what would be wrong if you had May, Max, Misty, Brock, and Ash on the same journey.

They did have Pokemon Chronicles with episodes of Misty in it, but they didn't seem to last. And they weren't featured in America either. IT's kind of like a mini movie or a special written within the show that would have an ending in 30 minutes rather then say to be continued.

When and if Pokemon ends, I want to see Ash reunited with Misty as they both embrace.

Well, Max will be able to be a trainer in, oh, say two years. He'll probably be a pokemon master, just like Ash, and just like his dad was. So he probably won't be with Ash, unless the stupid writers make him to races with pokemon or something.
Brock seems to just follow Ash, sorta' like a father he never had. So he'll probably never leave.
May and Misty... ooh, that would get interesting. That would be, like the end when we find out if Ash likes May or Misty more.
Ironically, Ash would probably think they were angry at eachother because May's Beautifly scared Misty or something like that...

Two girls have never been with Ash for a long time together, have they?

No. Although I liked Kasumi, I thought her character was getting boring and disappearing during Jouto. She used to have such a fiery personality, but in Jouto, she was reduced to a cheerleader sitting in the sidelines, cheering for Satoshi and didn't really do anything important. Same thing could be said with Takeshi, although the japanese producers don't want to risk doing what got the fans mad back in the Orange Islands.

Haruka, on the other hand, really does do somethjing that we can enjoy and watch. her contests. She really did add on to the plot of the show, unlike what Kasumi did in Jouto. Masato is there because Haruka and Satoshi need someone to look up to them. he also fills in the gap of what haruka replaced Kasumi. Haruka replaced Kausmi as the female token, Masato replaced Kasumi as the sarcasm token.

If they made a new character and kept Kasumi, then Kasumi's character would rot in the background.

Now all we need is for someone to replace Takeshi...

*rights down Brocks Japanese Name

You make some good points... though i would have likd to have seen some romance between Ash and Misty.

Odd Fact: If you attempt to translate Brocks Japanese name from Katana, google reads it as Bamboo Ti o_o

Lol!

Well anyway, I still think they can bring back Misty and change her character back to the old Misty rather than the Johto one. They probably could have gotten Misty to do contests...maybe ^^;

Too bad the writers weren't smart enough to do that in the first place. ^^; Plus, they'd have to throw away all the character developing that they gave Kasumi. Togepi turned her into a motherly figure and all throughout Jouto she was calm and quiet. Bringing back the old Kasumi would result into major plotholes. Even though that's what most of us want: the old Kasumi back.

But that would've strayed away from the games. It makes more sense for the female of R/S to do contests. They already established Kasumi's dream as being a expert water trainer (as she was a water gym leader in the games). Doing that would be sort of OOC.

I know, but the Anime does stray from the games anyway. Oh well, I know you're right, I just want Misty back. I'm sure they could fix her character if the wanted to =P

I personally think May made a fine addition to the show... but not Max. In my fanfic, he joins Team Aqua and leaves the group. I can see Ash, Misty, Brock and May travelling together.

Max would have to be affected by something pretty major to join Team Aqua. I don't think he'll really want to leave his sister.

It seems like the anime has to have new main characters for every new region. Orange- Tracey, Hoenn- May, Max and later Tetsuya and Masamune. So, its rather unlikely that Ash, Misty, May, and Brock would travel together. It just seems too big.

Max is a great guy, why get rid of him for? He's like the Professor on these journies and has to drag Brock by his ear to keep him out of mischief with Jenny/Joy.

I thought of putting Magma and Aqua in my stories, but they didn't pan out as serious villains.

Max just irritates me for some reason.

<fanfic> Oh, and Max is brainwashed into becoming an Aqua- they basically tell him that his sister and family don't care about him, and feed him false stories until they actually get through him. It's a pretty intense battle between him and May. </fanfic>

They probably just thought of it being a new region so they decided to add new characters I guess... Anyway, it would have been a good idea for Misty to do contests. Was it me or did the look of a new region (Hoenn) have more of an impact on Pokemon than the new Johto region??

Johto was connected to Kanto, Hoenn isn't. In GSC, you can travel to Kanto, you can't in Hoenn. Hoenn has a whole different feel from Johto and Kanto, a bigger, newer feel. It also has contests.

And the fact that they got rid of Misty and got new characters, as well as new villians, as well as new rivals... Yeah, thats a lot of differences. If I remember right, in Johto Ash had Gary as a rival just like in Kanto. So really Johto and Kanto are rather similar, both in design and in the anime adventures, while Hoenn is much different. That could be why it has such a big impact.
