Tip top kek
Ash got the badges and everything, but he himself had no experience. I guess charizard saw through his "I got a gym badge by helping the gym leader" bullshit and didn't pay attention to him.
Nowadays Charizard would have had enough heat for everyone and he could have had his Sceptile provide kindling to make a roaring fire.
Or Talonflame warms up everyone. Cold is no problem to modern Ash.
That's because modern Ash is a perfect Gary Stu with absolutely no flaws at all- not interesting to follow at all.
He's forever 10- just a shit character now. If you're not going to age him, have him sound and act like a kid, or don't fucking make his voice deep as gravel and have him act like a teen.
Series structure changed.
He went from a lovable loser that doesn't win the conventional way because heart and shit to a moderately competent trainer that resets his development per region and wins unconventionally but because methods rather than heart and shit.
