Even though it was meant to be just a mini-series, and possibly a one time deal, think it would be nice if they brought it back as a full a series, because even though it follows the video games, at least the hero actually wins at the end, and have it where each seasons has a new crew representing each game, while bringing back somebody from the previous season as a guest star or a cameo. It would be more original then the one with Ash. With Red, he gets all of the pokemon, which would be nice to explain how, wins the league and even mega evolves.
Sure the anime with Ash is okay, but since it's been on the air for almost 20 years now, it's pretty much the same story over and over again, no matter how matter times they tweak it. Ash starts a region with Pikachu, with Team Rocket not too far behind to cause trouble, catches a few pokemon, collects the necessary badges, do some good along the way, defeat that region's villainous team and when he does reach the league, he loses before he reaches the top, returns home to drop off his latest pokemon and goes back to square one. Sad thing is, after 20 years, Ash hasn't even caught a 100 pokemon yet, and right now the people working on the show seem to try too hard to keep Ash at neutral.
