PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

We are all pretty much sick of it by now. Normally when anything goes wrong in the series, it would be all worth the while if he could just win a league (like how Ash won the Orange Island League, after losing in Kanto and how he won the Battle Frontier, after losing in Hoenn). Even possible methods for improving his chances of victory (evolution, higher levels, older Pokemon, more prep time, less filler, better movesets) have justified for not happening. If Ash truly can't win, why should the rest of his league rivals be exempt (Richie, Harrison, Tyson, Tobias, Cameron)?

BTW, Solidad won the Kanto Grand Festival and still when on to Johto, Why would the buck stop there with Ash if: Pokemon League Victory ≠ Series End

The only closure from winning a conference, would be a regional one. And it wouldn't stop with a conference victory. Ash would still get to at least challenge the Elite Four (formally) (maybe they can have him lose there, since that's their favorite thing)

And besides, they never treated Ash's Orange Island League victory as a form of closure, nor have they differentiated that league from the other regional leagues. They don't know what's filler and what isn't (or else Ash would double his efforts and stop wasting his time with COD affairs :) )

Because if Ash really did win a major tournament, the anime would probably end. I can only assume that those who win the main tournaments stay in the region, or that the winning of a tournament is Ash's definition of becoming a Pokemon Master, and the anime needs Ash to continue exploring new regions. The anime focuses on process/ journey over end result. Of course, they could just come up with a new protagonist, but they won't.

Also, his rivals are also meant to show character growth like Ash, and losing a battle usually makes them much more humble (Paul & Trip especially). If they just won, it would either be strange that they were Ash's rival in the first place since they're meant to be kinda on the same level, or it would just show no development for their character, and the anime lacks any in-depth character development as it is.

Of course Ash has a reason to keep traveling, he ALWAYS does. To meet lots of Pokemon. But nowadays, that's ALL he ever does. If he can't take the Pokemon Conferences seriously, he might as well stay home and log onto PokeFacebook.
What on earth(haha) is PokeFaceBook?
A social network site for those who wish to meet people, as opposed to traveling across different regions and towns and pretending to make an effort in winning a Pokemon League Conference.
YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT! There's No Way Ash Ketchum will end of journey if won tournament league especially he become hero with his Pokemon. If Ash Ketchum will end of journey, he will No Longer Become Hero with his Pokemon and No longer Help people rather than Won In Championship.

It is entirely possible that Ash may eventually succeed in becoming champion. The only problem with that, however, is that it will present a huge lump in the story line; Ash has no motive. He has completed his mission that he set out to accomplish:being a Pokemon master.

So it is possible that he may actually win, but it would make sense if victory were saved for the finishing area in the show(possibly right before or after beating the region's evil gang).
