Stamp collecting is pretty pointless unless you're a fan, which applies both to the girl's contests AND Ash's various fighting leagues.
But no matter when we started watching, all of us have been on Ash's journey since day one. Wherever he goes, whatever he does, it's on the road to becoming a Pokémon Master, so we're in for that. If someone else just wants to win a Contest Grand Championship or something, we can already expect that character to not even exist anymore in two years.

It's just distractions formed for no real reason. Brock didn't need a Breeding League, Tracey didn't need a Watching League, Todd didn't need a Photography League, they just had aspirations they were shown working toward. The girls don't have to go on mini-journeys to be important to the story.

But it actually gives them something to do to not make them pointless, May and Dawn got contests so it actually gave them something to actually do and made sense why they ended up going their own seperate ways, they may not end up sticking around but fans who stick around for the long term can look back and enjoy what those characters ended up doing and the main focus ends up back on Ash.

Since the fact we end up with the characters each gen for at least 3 years, is it really a bit thing that they get their own specific focus and at least stick Ash in the background to support them the way they do him?

But that's saying Ash is never in the background supporting his friends at any other time, which I'm saying is false. They're just called focus episodes.

Turning the girls into Ash-lite actually gives them less personality than just letting a future occupation speak for itself.

A new Pokemon was leaked by Amazon on a TCG Box Set.

One minor thing I've seen from the Demo is that Water Shuriken is now a Special Attacking move.

Dang, the nearest theater to me is in Kansas City. It'd be pretty cool to see the original Pokemon movie on the big screen again 15 years later.

That's from the second movie, but still, that'd be cool.

...now I want a Pokemon movie double-feature. Or better yet, throw in Pokemon 3, too and make it a triple-feature. My inner child is salivating just thinking about it.

Wow, I've spent the past 15 years thinking it was for the first movie. I would have sworn to you they were handing those out back then. Granted I was a really little kid but still. The memory of the human mind is a bitch...

And if we're going to sit through travel companions for 3-4 years, having them not be much more than backdrop material to provide the occasional exposition on whatever is going on in the episode isn't my idea of a good character. There's a reason Brock suffered so badly overtime.

The demo is out in a few places.

Looks like the main activities are a trial that involves battling and taking pictures and then another section that has you on a Pokemon capturing mission. You can roam around a bit of a city and get a Tauros to ride around. The thing is crazy fast. You can explore a limited amount of areas outside of town as well.

Oh and Gigavolt Havoc has a freaking 175 attack.

EDIT - There's also going to be further events unlocked in the demo in 5 days and then again in 18 days.

Unlike a bunch of people, I think I'm getting more excited for this game with everything I see or hear.

Dugtrio looks too fantastic!

Hackers are also saying that there's an Alolan Golem somewhere in the demo.

So Game Freak tried to hide everything this time, but the hackers still broke through. Be careful where you go for Pokemon stuff, because you might get spoiled with major stuff.

I cannot be the only one who wants to see alolan forms for gens 2-6 right? There's so much potential and it's being wasted! This is my problem with the form thing. Mega evolutions too.

They keep giving them to pokemon who could have used them as evolutions instead.

I say either make ME starter/legends only or give it to everyone. As for Alolan forms...there's really so much potential that's being wasted.
