So if there’s a new Pokemon game coming out, it’d only figure that there’d be a new show to go with it, right? According to ANN, DIAMOND AND PEARL is ending this fall, but plans are already in place for a new show to, well,  take its place. This new that will mostly reflect the BLACK and WHITE games that, likely by no coincidence, will also be dropping this fall. Details are, obviously, scarce at this point, but I figure you’ll find more than a few clues lying within the screenshots of the new game. Squint real hard and get your magnifying glass out - - there just might be something lurking there.

Rather than speculate about what this new show might entail, I think it’d be better to ask a simple question to those of you who’ve followed Pokemon for all the years.  Forget what you’ll probably see in this toon… what do you WANT to see? Again, I’m kind of curious if a darker take on Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, and their pals, could actually fly. Something that got a little more mature to reflect the growing age of the core audience. Would that be a stroke of genius to inject new blood into this franchise, or would it be an unmitigated disaster?

@Tom_Pinchuk:  If Diamond and Pearl is over and they aren`t planning to do Black and White any time soon what new season could they make out of other games? C`mon use your logic :3

How many seasons are they up to now? One thing is that there are only so many different pokemon people can come up with and a second thing is that none of the characters age! There's a limit to how they can stand the test of time. Give this show at least a small sense of logic. 
 
P.S. I quit watching after the first season.

The first season (or what ever it's called) is still the best.

I was going to write this here, but I soon discovered that it was going to be a rather long post. Since I haven't done any blogs in awhile I figured I would make it into that and just link it here instead.

I stopped back in 2000 when Ash took on the Elite 4 and Gary in the Indigo Plateu Saga. Tried to watch some of the newer stuff, but in my opinion, they have killed the series.

None of these characters have even aged in ten years. What makes you think they're suddenly going to change the formula?
 
Meet new Pokemon in trouble.
Help new Pokemon.
Team Rocket blasts off again.
Walk into the sunset.

I'd like to see a time jump, we follow the new protagonists based on Black & White in a world where Ash is a pokemaster, whatever that actually is.
 
Instead, 10$ says Ash will leave all his pokemon behind, get a new outfit and team up with the girl version of the protagonist from B&W. Brock also comes along. 
 
Actually I'm a little pissed that the male protagonists always gets shafted.

pokemon had all its originality in Kanto/Orange Islands. got mundane afterwards. besides, the demographic has moved to an even younger audience than the one in 1998-2000. they arent going to do anything than the same mundane thing its been ding since the end of the silver conference.if they really wanted to make it inderesting, set it in the future with the white/black protagonist being Ash's cousin or something and Ash being a teenager/adult.

Maybe for a while they "Rest" Ash and Pikachu, and show other aspects of interactions with Pokemon (PLEASE NOT POKEMON COORDINATORS!)
 
I know people aren't complaining about Pokemon, when that God awful YU-gi-oh is still on the air.

After reading that plot, Im seriously hoping they make 100 more generic pokemon that no one cares about, all while crapping out another hundred or so episodes based on Ash finding each one of them and needing to help some idiot solve some mundane and pointless problem while vaguely wrapping the problem in some kind of life lesson about being nice to people, it would be their best bet.
