    So the rumours are that Ash, Pikachu and co are to axed from the Pokemon anime. Apparently Black & White are to be a completely new relaunch with completely new characters. Personally I think it'll destroy the Pokemon franchise Ash and Pikachu are the mascots of the franchise.

    They're the main characters, if they get rid of them (After all of these years) the franchise will die, I'm pretty sure of that... Actually.. The show will die, not the franchise. lol

    Yeah I forgot about everything else lol, but still if they got rid of Ash it would turn into a pile of crap.

    Personally, I hope to god they get rid of them... they've outlived they're stay.

    BUT, those whom have only just discovered the Pokémon series (or who are die-hard fans of the animé) will probably not like the sound of this.

    Lolz,

    Who cares about Ash and Pikachu, the games evolved, so needs the serie.
    New trainers come forward, so new characters can be used whenever it fits them.
    Not that i follow Pokémon tv shows, but it's just my point of view on the tv shows and the games.

    I've been with it since the start, I can't imagine anyone replacing Ash. It just wouldn't be the same.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO. *Goes on murderous rampage....*

    I doubt this is true though, no matter how strongly I despise Ash. His character is awful now, ever since the voice change.

    No more Ash and Pikachu? Took them long enough. Maybe the show won't be shit anymore. It went downhill after the first season the same way Digimon went to the dogs after season 3.

    The show is great. It'll go down the shitter if they get rid of all the characters.

    Times change.
    Trends change.

    It's time for something new.

    I suppose you're right, but I don't really see them changing everything. I'm sure they said they would always have Ash.

    The article is wrong. The only thing that is ending is the Diamond & Pearl arc. The original article says nothing about Ash leaving, though Dawn might leave so they can replace her with the Gen V female trainer. It just says that Pokemon DP is coming to an end with the Grand Festival and Sinnoh League coming up, and that the next "series" will follow after, obviously Pokemon Black & White with Ash in whatever region that takes place in. Also that one of the trainers in the Sinnoh League episodes will use a Legendary Pokemon.
