If an episode does not yet have that information, but is expected to air internationally, please refrain from listing it or creating a page for it until more information. Season 16 | Episode Best Wishes Until We Meet Again! As our heroes and Alexa wrap up their shipboard tour of the Decolore Islands, they spot several.
While everyone else is in a panic, Alexa is too absorbed in her work to notice anything. Jessie and Meowth descend from the balloon, with Jessie disguised partially as James and reciting the entire motto by herself.
James then uses a net to snatch Pikachu and Axewrevealing himself to be a fake after the real Porter arrives. Back in the cargo hold, Ash, Iris, and Cilan use the many boxes lining the walls to create a stairway in order to reach a hook that they can use to escape. As they try to climb out, it collapses and Ash grabs onto Cilan while still holding the hook at the top of the hold.
Cilan, similarly, is keeping Iris from falling, and the latter begins swinging back and forth to give them the boost they need to escape. Snivy uses Leaf Storm to cut the balloons and lower the boat back to the water while the passengers rescue Porter.
It is only when the boat impacts the water that Alexa notices anything and looks up from her work, wondering what had happened. After the boat docks in Vermilion Citythe group shares a meal at a local restaurant.
Iris and Cilan both express their wishes to start on their new journeys right away, and Ash tells them he understands, albeit a little sadly. Ash and Alexa go with Iris and Cilan to the train station, where their long journey comes to an end and the three friends, as well as Axew and Pikachu, share a bittersweet goodbye. Not a single second of disappointment or frustration, even after having come so close.
No human acts like that. Everyone would at least need to breath deep for a second there. But not Ash, because the narrative bends him into getting over it immediately. This is a massive contradiction to the premise of the anime! It makes no sense. How can people relate to this? If the writers are trying to teach that it's okay to lose, then they've failed this badly with such execution. While I agree it's okay to lose, it's also okay to feel disappointed.
The anime didn't do this and arguably didn't even do the first part either. Let us use an altered quote of the late Roger Ebert, because it perfectly sums up my thoughts on what happened at those very moments: I hated this scene. Hated hated hated hated hated this scene. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it.
Pokémon / Recap - TV Tropes
Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it. The league was soon interrupted by a crazy invasion by Team Flare, yet the excellent Team Flare arc and succeeding episodes could not save the disastrous conclusion of the ending: The reason the writers had Ash lose was clearly because they wanted to continue this anime.
I can't think of anything else. The status quo was in full power in that scene. Ash also meets some people who'll end up being his companions in the region. Some of those companions have goals of their own that they want to achieve. Team Rocket follows Ash and his crew in hopes of obtaining the Pikachu. His companions likewise fail to win in their respective competitions.
The consequences of the status quo results in these: His companions also do not obtain their respective dreams, and will likely never do so thanks to getting written out of the anime. TRio, despite failing over and over again to obtain Pikachu or some other goal, nonetheless continue to stalk him. Finally, the entire region becomes filler, as Ash remains in the initial state he was at the beginning of the saga—ready to start a new adventure with Pikachu by his side.
For a long time, Ash's incompetence was a pretty valid argument on why he kept losing. But this is no longer the case. It's just no longer Ash's stupidity or mediocrity, but vile and rubbish codswallop that caused him to lose.
The status quo has caused this Reddit post to happen after Ash's loss: He lost with a smile on his face. I understand this is to show kids not to be a sore loser. It's a good lesson and I appreciate Pokemon doing it. But my feelings for the conclusion are separate from that. I had fallen out of the anime after Diamond and Pearl. It wasn't that I didn't like it, I just wasn't really watching it. I had other shows I was watching and Pokemon just wasn't satisfying. They developed Ash's character, expanded on the world in an interesting way, upped the animation to a grand scale to make everything feel important and hyped the Kalos League like something important was going to happen.
It helped unite 20 years of Pokemon fans. But ultimately, this season was no different from the others.
And that is when it hit me. He is doomed to fail. He will never win anything that has any importance and will never have any meaningful character development. No matter how the Pokemon anime presents itself, we will never see Ash win a meaningful event until the series is over. And that will never happen as long as it is marketable. This made me sad, more than angry. This is a kid I grew up with who I am to watch fail over and over again. This is a kid who is, by all definition, a good kid and we will never see it pay off.
But he will always have a smile on his face. He takes it like a champ. Like the champ he is destined to never be because it is marketable. This series is somehow optimistic and sadistic at the same time. It teaches us it is okay to lose, but at the expense of this poor character who is doomed to never reach his goals or achieve his dreams until the show he is in dies.
I will likely not be continuing with the series after XYZ. Not because I doubt the next arcs will be poorly written. But because there is no longer a reason to stay invested.
Thank you Pokemon anime. Ash is not the only person who has failed to reach his dream. These are the results: Failure for just about every major character.

No one ever seems to win anything. For Ash's traveling companions, they get a goal, they fail at reaching the goal, and then they all get written out, never to be seen again, never ever fulfilling their goals. For the Permanent 5 Ash, Pikachu and Team Rocketthey get a goal, they fail at reaching the goal, then they fail again, and again, and again, and again, ad infinitum.
All in a show full of broken promises and unfulfilled dreams. I am sick of it all. This crap normally comes from politicians for crying out loud. I have never seen such a lack of respect for Ash the protagonist or any of its characters like this. How on earth is this a good thing? How is this good? I honestly want to know. What I have shared is nothing new.
This is not some kind of grand revelation. It is a problem that has existed for a while. I have repeatedly said in the past how much the status quo damages the quality and reputation of the anime. The status quo is something that has bothered me and other people for years, and plenty of us wanted it gone.
XYZ looked like it could finally destroy the status quo after so long. And yet the writers completely blew it. Those kids that watched the anime back in the late 's are adults now. Deep inside we all wanted to see Ash win. It is a very long time. The anger that resulted in the Kalos League loss is justified. One person from a forum said this: The salt is understandable thought.
It's been twenty years of loss for Ash. His goal to become a Pokemon Master is not yet fulfilled. Fans think Ash is losing his edge and he might have run past his prime without him achieving any of his goals. It's not about the sportsmanship right now.
We've had five leagues for that kind of show. We need[ed] him to win badly right now. A Jobber in Alola We now know that the anime staff writers, directors, producers and executives had no intention of actually making a meaningful and lasting impact on the show and instead continue to make Ash a jobber at every place he goes, bringing about all of his companions down with him.
Ash and Pikachu are running around in circles now. I cannot help but believe that the writers do not really care for their audiences, both kids and older viewers; the older viewers for repeatedly angering them with bullcrap like the Kalos League loss, and the younger audiences for assuming that they're stupid and don't know any better, to the point where they can reuse some plots from previous episodes.
I honestly think they intend to please no one but themselves. Three times has these people deliberately gone against the premise of the show for the sake of keeping the show to continue for who knows how long now. First with the existence of Tobias, second with the entire Unova saga, and third with Ash's Kalos League defeat.
That's three strikes now. The fact that they could pull garbage decisions like those can very well indicate that they can continue the anime for another 20, 30, 50, or even years, with Ash never fulfilling his goal. I hate this show now. It breaks my heart to see my childhood show come to this.
I never thought that after watching XYZ it would come down to me hating this show. Believe me, I truly detest this anime. What's the point of discussing what'll happen to Rowlet and Lillie just to give two examples if they're only going to get written out in the end? Whatever merits the Sun and Moon anime may have, it is not worth seeing a show where the premise seems to take a backseat to comedy never mind that comedy was never the main focus of the anime. It is not worth seeing Ash run and around in circles and lose again.
I will go and make a prediction: We as a fandom deserve a better anime than this. We really should be watching a good show instead of one that has debased itself so badly it may go down as one of the biggest wastes in animation history.
To use a quote from a Yahoo user misspellings corrected: Mars of Destruction only wishes it could be this bad. Plenty of these essays typically come with a solution to the problem. Time would fail to tell me the many, many ways they could've improved this. After all, wouldn't the show be so much better and more interesting had Ash actually won that Kalos League final? I wish I could translate this essay into Japanese and send this straight to TV Tokyo so they could know about how I and thousands of others feel about the anime.
Best Wishes! Until the Day We Meet Again!!
Sadly, I feel powerless right now and have no choice but to acknowledge the existence of the continued anime: The worst thing about all this is the fact that people are willing to go to far lengths to defend this tripe. I'll briefly counter a few common arguments: It's a kids' show. Being a kids' show is no excuse for bad writing. It's a minute advertisement. Being an advertisement for the games is no excuse for a bad show. The anime is teaching kids it's okay to lose. Except I don't believe it ever actually did this.
Even then, with a goal like Ash's, you're supposed to win after.
