No way, José! I can understand characters like Brock leaving, but Ash is — and always has been — the star of Pokémon and I highly doubt that's going to change anytime soon. As a character, he's grown on many of us over the course of our childhoods, and though we continue to grow, he doesn't, which can be seen as a good and bad thing in my eyes. How do you think young children would feel watching a show about a twenty-year-old man who wants to be a "Pokémon Master"? Myself, I'm rather keen on the idea of there being a Pokémon anime directed at teenagers and older audiences alike with alternations such as romance made to the show alongside the overall plot of "being the best trainer ever". I definitely think it's not all that unlikely considering Skyla's had her own hen— uh, never mind.

How would you feel if Samus was no longer the protagonist of the Metroid series? There's a reason why some things never change: directors are making money! The main games from the Mario series have had the same basic formula for the better half of 30 years now; defeat Bowser and save the princess. Your view on the whole thing is simply changing because, likewise, you are too! But do young children see Pokémon the exact same way we did all those years ago? Yup!
