Title say it all.

For example, Ash would be the main hero of Kanto, Jimmy (or Ethan) for Johto, May for Hoenn (to give some gender diversity and variation among the main trainers) and Dawn for Sinnoh (same reason for May). It all takes place in the same universe but follows one after another as sequels. Sorta like the Power Rangers. It'd be good depending on the writing and storytelling.

And please don't say something like "It wouldn't be the same!"

I agree with you. I personally thought it should have ended in battle frontier and then in the D/P anime have Dawn travel around by herself. Your idea is hitting it a bit early, but it does take care of the character development issues that disappeared in the D/P anime.

That would be nice, but Ash is here to stay. What would have been even better is if they had more than one trainer in the spotlight each gen. Like say if Ash was kept we'd be updated on his adventures, and in another episode or part of that episode it would be focused on the other trainer. Then sometime later on the anime they both met up.

Sorta like Power Rangers... >__> How many of us would know because....? Umm. Right, I had no childhood.

I don't like that idea. Too many characters to have to remember and choose from. Besides, Ash and Pikachu became like the representatives of Pokemon halfway through Kanto. None of this could have, or should happen.

That canonically and logically would make more sense than sticking with one main character all the time ^^

I do like the idea but I don't think it will happen...

I would rather have Marina in johto rather then Jimmy, shes more funny! Shes supposed to be a top co-ordinator now as well (Well marian said so =P)!~ :D

How come you never post back after I give my response? Is it cuz I make so much sense? I mean, look at Yugioh GX and Digimon Zero Two, both happened after there original series. Fans of those shows say those series are the worst and they should have stuck with the cast they had from the beginning. With the Pokemon fans, people are complaing that Dawn's leaving or Brock's leaving, just imagine how many fans would cry about Ash leaving? On top of that, Ash and Pikachu are mascots of the series, trust me it'd be much worse. And Pokemon Chronicles was a different series so fans were fine with that, so that series is not a good example I mean its fine cuz you can watch one series with other characters but still keep Ash as the main character in the main series.

Well replacing at the start of every new gen would get tiring after awhile, but so is having the same hero for over 11 years.
Pokemon fans could complain, but honestly the anime was already so horrible and predictable that Ash leaving wouldn't have damaged it any further. They could have brought in Max, switched to Gary, brought back Misty, May, or Tracy. Heck even just used Iris as the main character.

I guess our opinions differ too much. Some pokemon fans would welcome a change in main character, some may not. But you can't tell me that you wouldn't get tired of Ash if the series was still going another ten years from now.

If they got rid of Ash sometime... anytime... I could guarantee you I would have given the anime a second look. But as long as they keep the whiny arrogant brat and his annoying yellow rodent, there is no incentive for me to watch.

I would have supported this idea 100%. After all, in the games you don't play as Red for every generation, so why must the anime follow this path?

Hey, I've been a fan of Ash since the Kanto days, still am so no I don't think I'll ever get tired of him even past Best Wishes. Even so, if you replace him with some guy like Max or Gary people will just say oh no its a repeat of what that characters doing every day. Its going to be same thing with every character, than fans would be like I wish Ash was back trying to become a Pokemon master. Yes, some fans would love change but I can say a lot would not welcome this. Its too late now, maybe had they replaced him when Kanto ended it'd be like what Digimon is today. Guess what though? People miss Tai, who was the leader of Digimon series 1 to this day even.

Um, there was Pokémon Chronicles? But that only lasted through Hoenn! It was great, if you haven't watched it yet I would advise you to give it a try

Chronicles was just some random episodes that had nothing do with the each other (Save LoT) so why should they be compared with the animé?

Anyway, I doubt that it would be much different from the current animé.

Marina-More Generic than Misty
Vincent-Vincent has Meganium, 'nuff said

I'm pretty sure this almost happened.

I wouldn't mind as long as they mixed up the plot. I don't want to see each protagonist doing gyms. -.-'

Why not? You always do it in the games? Besides, you got the evil team of region to occupied the plot between Gym battles and let's not forget about filler.

And how would they make it to the Pokemon League?

Hmm...I reckon they'd have to give cameos to previous characters, such as appearing in Pokemon Leagues and whatnot...but then it'd be a more child-friendly version of PokeSpe manga...

That would be pretty good, despite the toned down violence.

UGH Ritchie, really? Gary yah, but Ritchie the goodie-goodie Ash clone? No thanks.

I think if we watched some of the game characters in the anime people would complain about them the same way they do about the characters we have now. You have them for about four regions you'll notice all the pros and cons about those characters.

I like that idea actually. Just add new characters and not drop old ones. At least the important ones. I fell behind with the anime so I'm actually in the process of getting caught up. I'm watching the first season right now just for the hell of it.

The repetition is one of the worst things about the franchise, why does it have to be ported to the anime? Look at Pokemon Special, it gets along fine without gyms.
