    2. Brock

  5. Hey ! I didn't know you were a huge Serena fan ! you won a subscriber now xD great video and btw for me :
    1. Brock
    2. Serena
    3. XYZ Ash or May

  6. the show tends to follow the game pretty similarly. a few details are switched around or altered slightly but overall the same characters, pokemon, key plot points, conflicts, gyms, etc. with ash almost always as the playable character's role.

    so like with sun and Moon ending with sun becoming the first ever champion…there not being any other canonical champion…I don't think ash could lose this one and still keep consistent with the game to anime trend. sure in the game you usually beat the champion but then for some reason you're never actually the champion. you just redo that same battle. but with sun and moon you defend your position agaisnt various challengers. and tbh I think that really is an important distinction between sun and moon and the previous generations.

  7. Also my favorites in order from most to lowest on the list:

    1) James. his love for his pokemon is real. I ship him and Jessie as a queerplatonic couple (look it up if you don't know cause I don't get notifications to replies). And to me it's clear he's in team rocket to stay with her (and/or his pokemon at times). he's easily the nicest and most caring character in the entire series and puts up with so much because of his genuine love and affection. it's also implied that he's queer (either trans or bi or both or maybe non binary who knows.) and that just adds to his relatability and why I love him so much.

    2) braixen- not really a character unless you look at Serena braixen, but as a pokemon he is easily my favorite.

    3)nurse joy- she may be a cyper robotic pokemon collective, but she puts real effort and soul into how much she cared about every pokemon who needs her help. without her many pokemon would die. she contributes so much in every town of every region (for the most part).

    4) ash's charizard. he has character. and he makes it clear that ash doesn't own him and can't make him do anything. even if ash did rescue him, he has to maintain his respect amd relationship and then he'll consider taking ash's concerns seriously.

    5) meowth- his motives are primarily to stay with his friends. but at times he's not above working with "enemy" when things look serious. along with James he also makes the most amount of 4th wall breaks which I also really love. and also he taught himself how to speak English (Japanese? vague anime universal human language? who knows) so he works well as a pokemon to human translator and can blend quite well with either group, while also not fully fitting into either.

    6) mewtwo- understandable anger, intense power, existential crisis…but ultimately not actually evil or bad. just hurting and alone.

    7) ash's pikachu. he consistently has shown consistent personality and emotions and has become a major mascot not just for pokemon but for "kid friendly anime" for generations now. he's iconic and full of his own quirks and responses

    8) ash's pidgeot- once a vulnerable little bird she grew to become strong enough to protect the babies in turn. she's only so low because ah never bothered to come back like he promised he would.

    9) ash only because the story follows him and wouldn't be the same otherwise. most of the time I find him rather insufferable though.

    10) ash's butterfree. the first pokemon he caught and the first one he released. still very emotionally invested and he was gone in less than 30 episodes of a 2 decade long series. where is he? who knows. will we ever meet his babies? probably not. but I dare you to say that his existence doesn't add emotional ties to the pokemon anime universe. I dare you.

    side note: professor sycamore looks suspicious af. Like team aether levels of "I just cannot trust this dude even though I know he's supposed to be good." (yeah I know aether is bad and sycamore isn't. but like he still looks and talks and acts suspiciously. so he stays high profile and enjoyable to watch)
