I asked if you Development mean transforming into a totally different character that sweet , Nice , rational , Good mannered and mature!
And You said ''Yes"" !
Off Course , It will create Misunderstanding !
For example, Ash development totally gone Wrong Because writers turn into a totally different character that is appealing a Kids Parents , Not Kids !
The Original Ash was a Narcissist , Attention-seeker , Practical Joker , Glutton ,Sarcastic, Mischievous and hothead.
Ya , Those were his ''Ugly side'' But those were part of him !
Writer completely erase all ''Ugly Side'' of him in name of Development But that not development .
I'm not good at explaining thing.
But If You just read ''Pokemon Doujin : Festival of Champion'' then you can see The ''Truly Developed Ash'' in Red Just by looking at picture. http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=manga&illust_id=19285575
Red has all Ash's ''Ugly Side'' but he's still more developed then him.
Human aren't perfect ! They will never be perfect .Human has both Good & Ugly side within them ! They just balance it out .
By the way , Stupidity & Idiotsy aren't Ugly side of Human.
??? I never said that at all??? I said mellowing the mad traits and showing the character learning and growing from experience is what I want??? and that I don't like extreme tsuns. You absolutely ignored that modifier. That means I do not mind tsundere characters as long as that is not all they are. If you're not going to listen to what I'm saying I don't really think we can have a conversation tbh.
So basically you think Development mean turning into a ''Good Boy''. That's not Development , That Shortcut .
Only amateur writer change a character completely in name of Development.
Real Development is where The character change his/her flaws while keeping her personality the same.
For example , Gold (Pokemon Adventure)
He is just as Arrogant , ill-manned , ill-responsible, Selfish , Egoistic & hot tempered Womanizer as before.
Does that mean he's didn't develop at all ???
No , He did got Develop more then Ash and it was shown when he deal with Masked man & Arceus . He doesn't need to act like a ''Good Boy'' to show his development
Same goes with Alder ! Does he has stop acting a lazy perverted carefree Old man to prove his Maturity ?
No ! He shown his Maturity when he deal with Gigalith.
His carefree lazy Womanizing personality is part of his character ! Taking it away is same killing him. Same Way , A Tsundere is always a Tsundere because its part their Characteristic .
A lot of Super popular Anime girl are still Tsundere ! Does that mean none of them were Develop ?
Hopefully You watched ''Toradora'' ! Do you think Taiga didn't develop at all since she still act like a Tsundere when she Headbutt Ryuji for commenting about her height in the final episode.
Misty was right choice for Ash because he was a arrogant rush Boy that needed Someone to keep him on line.
But Currently Ash is just So Gentle & Innocent that it doesn't seem like he need anyone to keep him on line.
In that case , The Best heroin would be A cold Tsundere Rival that will get influence by Ash and Develop.
1) Trip never viewed Ash as more than an acquaintance; certainly not an older brother figure.
2) Yes, that's what I'm saying. I'm not a fan of straight extreme tsun. I want actual complexity of character and a softening of the tsun personality traits.
3) Nobody needs to act like a mature adult. They just need to grow and change as people do.
Depend on what you consider to be Development !!!
If you believe Development mean transforming into totally different character who's sweet , Nice , rational , Good mannered and mature then you have the wrong idea.
Remember how creepy Trip look when he suddenly start treating Ash like a older brother because of One lector from Alder ! Thats Not Development.
I believe , ''Development'' is fixing the flaw of a character without changing him/her to a completely Different character.
Their is no need for that Girl to stop act like a Tsundere as long as she fix her ego & Superiority complex and Learned to accept her weakness and her friendship with Ash & Co.
Plus , This is no time for Ash & other to act like a Mature adult ! They are just 10 year old Kids .
Kids will be Kids no matter how Smart they are !
Even teenager are more Childish then Ash & Co ! History witness that all genius were immature children .
Neh. I'm literally never interested in the extreme tsun characters if that's really their only trait. Like the closest would be Burgundy, and she actually did show a pretty complex personality over the time she was featured. I'd be okay with someone like her. Just not a fan of real jerk characters with no development.
Just think of her as a Tsundere that slowly Open up to Ash & group.
However , She doesn't totally change her personality and become buddy buddy with Ash.
She remain a Tsundere which allow other character to tease her and make her mad.
Its like Goku (Dragonball) , He matured so much but he still kept his childlike innocence and some other traits .
I also think , She should be a famous Prodigy from a Prestigious Family which happen to be the main reason behind her Superiority Complex & Ego.
So she can't stand When a ''Commoner'' like Ash treat her normally and tied a battle with her.
Here a fan script where her name is Kurumi
(Ash & Pikachu walking at street and he meet Kurumi )
Ash : Ah .....
Kurumi : You !! What are You doing here ?
Ash : Oh , Kuro-chan ! Long time no see .
Kurumi : DON'T CALL ME KURO -CHAN !!!!
Ash : Ahhhh , What wrong with it ??
Kurumi : Everything ! I'm Kurumi , The Battling Princess Kurumi ! But now Because of you and that little girl , Everyone started calling me Kuro-chan . Nobody called me that before........
A Woman : Ohh , Kuro-chan ! Where are you ?
Kurumi : That voice !!
Mother : There you are ! I'm been looking for you .
(Mother look at Ash )
Mother : So , Is that your Boyfriend !
Kurumi : What B-Boyfreind !!!
Mother : Hmmm , You know , I wouldn't go for him if I were you .
I think that would be a fine starting point for a rival, but the important thing about Pokémon is developing characters through their journeys and interactions with others. So starting that way? Fine. Staying that way? God no.
Do you remember the original Ash who was arrogant , Mischievous , laid-back , Ego-manic and hothead ???
Now remember that Ash but now he's more smarter , competent , stronger and doesn't make the same mistake twice.
How you feel about that Ash ???
FYI : Arrogant & Over-confident are 2 different thing.
Even Gold (Pokespe) ,Ichigo (bleach) , Luffy (One Piece) act arrogant & ignorant toward other but that does not mean they are overconfident.
PokéSpe will stay a manga because it works well as a manga. There's no sense in adapting something when there's already a comparable show. If the regular PokéAni ever stops being made, maybe then we'll see a PokéSpe adaptation.
