    Out of every comment only one person talks about the Shiny Celebi, how much you want to bet we ether have to go see the movie in theaters or buy it to get Shiny Celebi, (the ones with a banned switch will have to hack it in) I preordered that pink switch lite so I have an unbanned coming next month.

    Meh, lost pretty much all interest in Pokemon movies after the Sinnoh ones. Since then, I've watched the Unova movies just to see what they were like, and...I've spent my time watching more interesting things, but they weren't the worst wastes of time.

    I'm glad they realised they needed to stop using Ash Ketchum, the boy who conquered the Hoenn Kanto Battle Frontier only to lose every League tournament until Alola, and thus cause a reboot. However, they need to stop using the "Ash Ketchum" character altogether, and either create a new protagonist for everything now or create new protagonists for each individual movie.

    Didn't Ash promise his Pidgeot he'd go back for it after his then-current adventure, yet never actually fulfilled his promise? Didn't he leave his Primeape - yes, he once caught one - in the hands of some boxer? I remember liking Torkoal, Donphan, Sceptile and Infernape too, due to their personality; they were rarely used in later seasons. Due to how long Ash Ketchum was the central protagonist, there's so many Pokemon that have been neglected ever since their series ended, which is a major reason why I'm glad for the reboot. Clean slate - there are no broken promises or forgotten members anymore.

    Ok, another pokemon movie.
    Gotta keep the hype alive and all.
    But looks ok.

    As for Ash being in it ... Well I was out of the Pokemon scope for quite some time ... who else should have been the protagonist then?

    Personally, I'm not a fan of female protagonists; they just aren't as compelling as male protags, to me. Having them as deuteragonists (i.e. Misty, May, Dawn), instead of the main protagonist, is better in my eyes.

    The main character being Ash's child would be quite a leap, considering the guy never aged a day past his tenth birthday; this isn't Naruto, where the main boy visibly grew older (I think; never watched Naruto) before justifiably having a son.

    I don't think the movies and anime's target audience is adults, just saying.

    I'll bite, what makes them less compelling to you? To me whether a character's writing is good is completely separate to their gender.

    I just can't 'connect' with female protagonists like I can with males, because I've never had a sister, close female cousin or friend in order to understand the female mindset. Meanwhile, being a guy, I know what the male mindset is like, meaning getting into their 'shoes', so to speak, is easier.

    I'm also not a fan of tomboys, or of violent women, which most female protagonists tend to be. I see that as horrid and just not what should be promoted as 'acceptable' or 'normal'.

    Female deuteragonists, meanwhile, don't quite get the same spotlight the protagonists get, so it's easier to ignore the elements I don't agree with. Hence why I was fine with May and Dawn, along with Persona 5, but not Bayonetta or Horizon: Zero Dawn.

    You know what should be promoted as acceptable? Whatever the character damn well WANTS to be as long as it doesn't harm others. If you see a female protagonist acting how they want to and defying gender norms as "horrid", that's just you being sexist.

    Lets all end this before it gets started if you really need to dish this out do it some other place because this is not the place/post to do so and its way way off topic.

    I guess it comes down to accepting games and media aren't made for you, and accepting that your views are the minority, not the norm. That being said, there's plenty of games out there with strong male leads so I'm sure you'll be covered for content.

    I will dish it out in exact equal quantities to others dishing out prejudice, bigotry and the like.
    Not a bit more.
    NOT. A. BIT. LESS.
