Ash, you are 23 years old. It's time to maybe consider settling down, or at least step up your game and go big.

I've become the Pokemon Master like thirty times in the last 13 years ash.

Thirty times.

Come on, you can do it, it's not hard.

Your mom worries Ash.

You aren't going anywhere, you don't call, and you just leave her alone all with that Mr. Mime.

Mr. Mime Ash.

He's like the creepy guy who watches people showering at the gym, as a pokemon.

Is that what you want to leave to take care of your mom?

Some creepy guy, with psychic powers?

Come on Ash, get it together man.
