Wait who the hell is that and what did they to do my beloved ash
@generic zombie, they fvcked him! Bad!
@seeUpee, with a shovel.
@generic zombie, Ash doesn't get older, he gets younger
@generic zombie, I heard it's because after Kalos, Disney got the rights to air it in America. But Toonami or Cartoon Network or whatever still had the rights to all the character appearances (pokemon excluded) so anyone who had appeared before got the soft corner treatment. Ash, Jesse, James, Prof. Oak, Delia (Ash's mom), and Misty and Brock who both came back for a few episodes twice.
Edit: The redesign is tolerable honestly, but he's so goofy now to go with it. He's stupider than Season 1 Ash, but smarter than BW Ash. He had matured so much in Kalos and the adventures were more action packed. They even gave him his first kiss and I had hoped they were finally pandering to their older fans. And now... this travesty
@18bluecat, bluecat informative as always! Thanks!
That was one of the worst character redesigns ever. Ash looks so lame in that art style
@Nitro73, have you ever actually watched the sun and moon series like yeah the animation is different but it grows on you and honestly their faces have me rolling sometimes I think you should check it out
@kimmy hed, I have, I don’t like it. Like I already hate the fact that Ash doesn’t seem to age but they made him look younger after YEARS of episodes. It’s like you expect me to believe that after all these adventures Ash has had he is still 10? If you like it that’s cool I’m just saying it’s lame to me.
@kimmy hed, no didn’t want to didn’t like the art style, thought I knew how the series was gonna end (nobody ever expected Ash to win), and Hau’s mere existence so why bother kinda ruins the desire to watch when you hate the art style from the get go and know that all the work the character you’ve been following has been putting will likely amount to nothing
Mom, can we get Pokémon?
-We have Pokémon at home
Pokémon at home:
I could deal with the voice change but this is... bad
I like the art style of the redesigned Ash as a general rule (like I'd they used it for something else, if like that art style) but it doesn't look good for Pokemon or for our beloved Ash
im in denial... deeeeeeeniaaaaall!
Y'all need to stop complaining about this art style. We finally got an interesting stylization and a season with actually really fůcking good animation.
Wait! Ash finally became a pokemon master??
@CellSword, no he won a single pokemon league and news outlets are trying to sound hip and with it by throwing out lingo they remember from the 90's
The show it probably one of the best since the original.
@Keoninzmu, I think I enjoyed x and y more tbh
@Killing instincts , XY and XYZ are by far my favorite of the entire franchise. The first 3(?) had their own, different charm, but Kalos was just amazing
