Why ?

because kids have autism and want a new play thing every year also what the fuck is wrong with these people? why would you release your strongest pokemon ever? what the flying fuck is wrong with these kids its like they don't want to win.

Because the reason they were sticking with Ash was already solved and they have no reason to continue to travel with him, they're all still in Kanto and Ash can visit them whenever he wants.

Characters in the anime actually have hearts, unlike player characters in the games.

>>
>>124244560
Because Misty was an awful character with a vague as fuck goal that she barely did anything to achieve, and the only ones who like her were nostalgiafags and autistic as fuck tsunderefag shippers who treat the dub as canon (fun fact: Misty had no feelings for Ash in the Japanese version). Brock stayed for longer, but he got even more stale as the series went on, so he finally left for good at the end of DP.

And really, each new girl has just been better than the previous one, other than Iris, who happened to be a black Misty with dragons instead of water, so them getting replaced is a good thing.

Also, here's the Japanese farewell scene of the original trio:

Say it ain't true anon. Say it ain't true.

It's not really true, it's just a hell of a lot more subdued in the original and was pretty much written out completely by the time Johto came along.
>>
>>124245550
Straight from the original head writer:

http://team-rocket.forumcommunity.net/?t=51254349
>Kasumi doesn’t feel love for Satoshi. If her love for him became one of Pokemon’s plots, it would break all the Pokemon series’ structure. Pokemon’s theme is relation between fictionals creatures and people and also growth through think and thin of the young boy (this means an age period for both boys and girls), Satoshi.

>In Pokemon however, the most important theme is relation with fictional creatures, which was added to that theme. For Satoshi, who’s a child, Pikachu is th partne he can count on. For example, even if Kasumi fell in love with Satoshi, it wouldn’t be able to interrupt relation between Satoshi and Pikachu.

>If Kasumi’s love towards Satoshi happened in Pokemon, it would be nothing more than seasoning added to cooking - and, to be honest, for Pokemon’s theme, seasoning that makes taste complicated would be only a disturbance.

>So from the start, there’s no such factor in Kasumi’s character as love towards Satoshi. Surely, it may be that Kasumi was in the ager when girls fall in love, but “Pokemon” isn’t either a shoujo manga nor a cellphone novel.

>That’s why, out of all the characters appearing in the Pokemon anime series, the one with the weakest existence is Kasumi. It was decided from the start, when Pokemon anime was during planning, that Satoshi will be character travelling with friends, because if it was only the boy and Pokemon it would become tasteless and it would be hard to introduce to the girls’ audience. This existence could be compared to a parsley in a dish. It doesn’t need to be there, but the dish looks better if you add it. Occassionally, there are people who like parsley in their dish, but it’s a minority.

I like her because she IS a part of the trio and she's not a bad character a all. You don't let we get attached with a character only to remove it from the story for nothing.

The removal of Misty and Brok are one of the things why pokemon started to be shit.

Game names.
Besides Ash, which is just weird for everyone to just switch to Satoshi after all this time, the names come from the games, or if the place/person hasn't appeared in the games, they'll use the Japanese name.
Especially since when everyone is discussing, there won't be any any english names to use in those cases anyway since it's like half a year behind.

Misty wasn't awful character but she isn't the best (Also Iris is bad but she isn't a black misty), Brock was the best bro and was the most useful team member in history.

The best trio is Ash, Dawn, And brock.

Pasta summing up BW pretty well:

>*The rivals were terribly handled. Shootie was boring, his character arc barely even involved Ash, and he was given a horrible resolution. Langley and Cabernet just disappeared with NO resolution whatsoever.
>*Ash's team was weak, boring (3 starters + Pikachu and a bird is never an exciting combination), and his reserves rarely ever appeared and had zero personality.
>*Hikari's 10 episode long guest appearance barely involved her at all
>*Grimdark Team Rocket was fucking terrible in every way
>*Episode N had some decent buildup, but the endgame was an anticlimax taken to insulting levels
>*Decolora Adventure had its share of fun episodes, but 20 episodes of random aimless adventures is no way to end a series.
>*It's also generally agreed that the movies weren't very good (I kinda like the Victini one though)

Fuck off, retard. That rumor is on the same tier as Butterfree dying in Japan and Mew being under the truck.

The trailer played the third ending (which is about a mother and her little girl discussing Pokemon and how they long to return to childhood/grow up respectively) while Misty's voice actor talked about the movie being announced, so Misty and the singers were depicted in the animation for the trailer.

Yeah he fucking pokedexed a Koffing that he didn't saw in almost 640 episodes, also scanning it for his friends that didn't knew what it was.

>Are kids in 2020 even gonna give a shit about pokemon?
Yes because kids in 2020 didn't play the old games, if you aren't a child this show isn't meant for you. If you want to enjoy it you need to stop worrying about long term shit and enjoy the episodes.

The Korrina vs Ash threads were nice, I must have missed the recent ones.
