no one becomes a master it's all a hoax to distract the people from the real problems in the world 
like pokemon at any moment could rise up and crush the human race

Random second page aside, I'm glad this thread re-entered my life.

Rant alert: 
I used to like Ash in Kanto and Johto, but now he has easily become the most FRUSTRATING characters of all time. He has a freaking Pikachu that has been through 4 regions already, and still loses the easiest battles. And Ash hardly ever evolves his Pokemon, he just keeps them in their little cute stage and expects them to always win. He wants to be a master so bad but HE NEVER USES HIS BEST POKEMON! Charizard? Hardly uses. Pidgeot, Primape, Lapras? Released. Sceptile, Snorlax? Oak's lab. If he had these, he would own. And another thing, he doesn't even CATCH Pokemon. Whatever happened to "Gotta Catch em All?" The Pokemon he has are ones he makes friends with and says, "hey, wanna come along?" and they do if they want. It's like a sin in the show to actually capture a Pokemon like you do in the games. That's what I love about Paul. The Ursaring Ash and Co. was running away from? Paul CAUGHT. The strong Gliscor? He CAUGHT it. Whenever Ash sees a strong or legendary Pokemon, he befriends it and lets it go on its merry way or he runs away from it. FOR GOSH SAKES CATCH IT! For someone who wants to be the best battler, he doesn't act like it. That's why Ash doesn't deserve to be a master and I hope Paul owns him in the Sinnoh League.

The Pokemon Moniker changed after the Johto series from "gotta catch them all, to just being the best" The "gotta catch em all, was a marketing ploy for people to buy the game.
 
The reason why Ash doesn't evolve the majority of his pokemon is because, he believes in inner strength, and that you dont need to change to become stronger. ( seen in Bulbasuar and the secret garden)

Realy, I'd say ash already is a pokemon master, what with all he's done, i mean come on! He stopes a battle between mew and mewtwo, he stopped that misguided collecter guy from imprisoning lugia, heck, he even rode on lugia! Then then he stops that madman ( can't remember his name.....) from controling celibi andchanging time, I can go on and on. But realy what pokemon profeser, even Oak or Rowan can say they saw and met as many pokemon as ash did? Or even go through all of the hardships he had to endure? So in my book, he is a pokemon master.

done in the game secret technique, that your pokemon learn when they didn't evolve until certain level
 
so yeah justified believe

I guess Ash just has Gilligan Syndrome, as long as Pokemon is popular, the show will keep going on and on. If he becomes a master, either the show ends or they dump Ash and give the show to Dawn.

@Billbaggins: It's not like there aren't millions of shows like that. Take House: if he perked up and became chipper and happy, no one would have any interest in the show. If Sylar finally died on Heroes, they'd lose audience...although personally I think it'd be GREAT for the show's storyline @_@; And free Zach Quinto up for more movies :D

I think Dawn as the main character would be awesome. That's why i liked Pokemon chronicles because they showed other former major characters like ritchie

@gia: yeah, I agree with you. Even if Ash never becomes a master, though, I wish they could at least shake up the story more in the next generation. It seems like it's the exact same formula: Ash travels with Brock and insert girl's name here, they travel while Ash gets badges and the girl gets ribbons, they stop and help random people with random tasks between gym battles and contests while battling Team Rocket, then Ash and the girl go to the Pokemon League and Grand Festival, come close to winning, and don't. With the exception of the Orange Islands and Battle Frontier, that has been the story of every single season. I know that's mostly how the games go and the show wants to stick to the plot of the games, but I still think they can do that and something different to shake up the show, not just the group meeting random people every episode that they'll never see again and blasting Team Rocket off.
