On the development of ‘rivals’ and complex character networking in the Pokemon series
One argument I’ll never understand from ’90s series Pokemon lovers is that the OS did a superior job in creating dynamic relationships between the characters. I understand they’re probably referring to the original trio — Ash, Brock, and Misty, which undoubtedly was one of most wonderfully executed main casts of the whole series.
But, as Pokemon carries on through the generations, there is one thing that the writers are consistently getting better at doing: creating rivalries and integrating these relationships to create complex networks of characters that all interact with one another.

I can’t wait to be the “crazy lesbian” auntie who’s a free spirit and only comes around the family every few years to remind everyone I’m doing better than they are in every facet of life.
okay so for the good of humanity, Wu needs to burn Mako’s suitcase to a crisp and then take him out on another shopping trip so he can go full-on “what not to wear” on this nerd whose entire god damn wardrobe is that unflattering baby diarrhea green uniform
u wanna know how i know that wuko is the right ship for me??? the sheer number of times the words “trash” and “garbage” are used by supporters of the ship in the ship tag. i belong in this trash can w/ these people. this is my home. hopefully this trash can is on it’s way to becoming a full size dumpster. and maybe someday—if we’re really lucky—it will blossom into a whole dump. a landfill full of wuko trash. that’s the dream
Too curious for their own good teenagers :D
Please join me in appreciating how cute Bonnie is and how cool Ash is in this screenshot.
AU where Asami is actually like an amazing sketch/doodle/painter and creates a ton of MISSING posters of Korra just like Sokka did when Appa went missing
actually, since asami is technically an architect (she designed the trans-national railroad infrastructure) and also a clothing designer (she also designed the air nation flight suits), it’s not too far off the mark to suggest that she’s good at drawing!!! she probably has an entire sketchbook dedicated to korra’s pouty expressions or something…..
