No, I'm not saying that Pikachu should be able to destroy any Pokemon easily. But, it loses faster than it really should.

Oh, that? Well, you're right about that. Pikachu does lose rather easily, unless Ash is in an important Gym Battle.

Another thing I dislike, is that Ash sticks with the same four attacks with Pikachu: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, and occasionally Volt Tackle. He doesn't even utilize Double Team, Thunder Wave, Light Screen, and even Tail Whip!

True, those combinations could help. Double Team and then Agility and then maybe Irontail or Volttackle. He doesn't use combination moves like he did on the old seasons.

As for me, I'd say I hate that one dodging technique where they spin in midair to dodge. It's from the Diamond and Pearl Season for those of you who don't know.
Adding onto that, it's weird how you can't dodge attacks in the games.

Here's something strange: INstead of a new episode, they repeated Dawn's debut! What was up with that?

It would be more like Protect. You would got first and the opponent's attack would be guaranteed to miss. But you couldn't use it twice in a row.

Yeah. Dx

They keep repeating old episodes. It gets on my nerves. They need to start cranking out new episodes.

That's a great signature of Buneary/Lopunny. I've been using my Lopunny a lot in missions on PMD 2. But I also agree, they should give us more new episodes.

Problem 1:

Okay, you've all seen Jirachi:Wishmaker right?

In the scene where Butler catches Absol, he puts it in a cage and has Kirlia use hypnosis to make it stop trying to get out and it worked and Absol fell asleep.

But wait! Isn't hypnosis a psychic type move? And Absol's a dark type! Psychic moves don't work on Dark types!Someone know why?????
When Arbok evolves into Seviper. xDDD

Well, Most of your questions prove a strong point, but the reason is "Entertainment". The creators before releasing these "shows/games" most likely pictured these scenarios and decided to move along and deal with them when they get there. So far NOTHING big has happend about Ash being 20. No one has sued The Pokemon Company about it because the purpose was to be entertaining! For that other question "How The TV related to the Games" Yes the Trainers say "Attack the Tail!" etc, and its not included in the game because it would be WAY to complicated and would loose fans of young and old due to the time it took to figure out how to beat the first gym leader! Pokemon is based on a fiction universe designed specificly for cash, entertainment, and popularity (which it is steadily loosing)...

Something I find interesting is that in the games(and I think this is so nessacery) we have to beat trainers to get to the gym leader, while in the anime, Ash just goes straight to the gym leader. I don't find it as it's cheap, I just thought it would be interesting to bring up.

Something very strange, Remeber Destiny Deoxys? It showed a Munchlax, but Munchlax is a DP pokemon (I think), and Destiny Deoxys was out BEFORE DP AIRED IN THE US!
