He just replaces people like misty with May, Dawn, and whoever his cronies are in unova. He's not even friends with brock now, is he?
He doesn't throw away friendships. Its not in his character to blatantly disregard a friendship with a human or pokemon.

Before you place it on him Ash is not the one writing people off the show, he is not forcing people out they left on their own will. Why would he have pictures of vice versa Brock have a picture of him and Misty together if they were still not friends?

The writers pretty much force a change due to advertising purposes of the new games. So the mentality is out with the old in with the new for the most part. This is not to say characters will just be left and never revisited. We have seen Misty return, we have seen May return, Dawn recently got a mini arc before and during the Junior Cup.

Since the game works differently to the anime I can't say leaving his Charizard, Primeape, Gliscor etc... was such a bad idea because he can still find them and call on the ones he still technically owns when he needs them.

I think his biggest mistake is not ALWAYS using his head. He's been shown to be ingenious in a lotof significant battles but then any random trainer or rival can beat him easily (even with a random Snivy, lolwhat?). If that dude actually paid attention all the time maybe he could finally manage to win a league.

The runner-up screw-up is not using Charizard in the Sinnoh league. Sceptile, Charizard and Infernape are some of his best pokemon but the only one he used was Infernape. If he had used Charizaed not Torkoal for his fire type against Tobias things may have gone better, after all we have already seen proof that it can go toe-to-toe with a legendary (and win) in the Entei movie (and there was a second time I think but I don't remember).
I doubt Charizard would have got him the victory. It all depends on how many more legends were on Tobias team as Ash only took out 2 of his pokemon. Second time was with Articuno in Battle Frontier.
