So for the past couple of weeks, I've been watching Pokémon: Indigo League (which if you don't know, which I wouldn't know why you wouldn't know, is the first Pokémon animé series.) Anyway, after watching the first 30+ episodes, I've noticed that the badges Ash has gotten so far, have kind of been... just given to him, or some kind of way that wasn't really the fair way?

Well, the first two were given by Brock and Misty, right? Then the other few... which I can't remember really how he got them, if they were just given to him, or if the gym battle got interrupted in the middle of it by Team Rocket, or something like that, but he's not really... earning it, I guess I should say? I never really noticed that.. I thought he had earned all of them when I was younger.. XD

I'm not sure where I'm going at with this thread, but I just thought I would bring that up, since I thought that was so interesting to me. Haha  ^^

Hmmm, in a way, he did get those badges handed over to him pretty easily, but I still feel as if he also earned them. He did battle Brock, and lost once. He won the second time. He battled Misty because her sisters didn't want to battle because they were out of pokemon. Though, I think the one with Misty, he should have battled again for it. I feel like he earned the one with Brock though.

I believe he did deserve most badges because of bravery, whenever the battle was interrupted. Just imagine being a gym leader and your Pokemon were stolen, and you didn't have any Pokemon left, and your challenger rescued them. Even though they could have re-matched, the Pokemon will probably be tired, right?

Ash "legitimately" earned 4 of his 8 Badges by engaging in a Gym Battle with the Leader.

- Thunder Badge vs. Lt. Surge and his Raichu
- Soul Badge vs. Koga and his Golbat
- Volcano Badge vs. Blaine and his Magmar
- Earth Badge vs. Jessie and her loaned Pokemon

The other four weren't really earned though.

I remember that. Also I think Misty and Brock give him crap for it. Haha. But I remember it being very difficult to beat Lt Surge
