So Ash's friends are bad. Why? Because they use Ash. Why do they use Ash? How do they use Ash? Are they not pure hearted? No, no they are not. And they use Ash for his training. They use him for his Strive to help others. They use him for his naturally kind nature. And most of all, they use him for his Fame. I mean, why else would they help a famous dude stop rampaging legendaries? They take advantage of his Passion, his Kindness, his Grit and Determination, His Loyalty and most of all.. His Trust. But Ash won't do anything about it, like take revenge. He's too pure hearted for that. I mean, he is the chosen one for a reason. He did find out why his Pokemon weren't winning him leagues too. But he'll prove them all wrong. How exactly? By winning a league. But not in a way you'd expect.
