Or the Coyote always trying to catch the Road Runner, or Brain always trying to take over the world, except those things happened, oh, I try to come up with examples but I'm getting the same problems you are. *sigh*

Pokemon is a never-ending type series where the character relationships don't particularly grow. Lots of things are suggested, but it's like those old comedies where they milk a gag throughout the series. Kinda like the Nyles-Daffney thing in Frasier that seemed to last forever...but they eventually hooked up, so that kind of kills my example.
Or we could say that it's like Charlie Brown missing the football Lucy holds out every year...wait, Schultz did suggest that he kicked her football in the last year...it was a weird strip...she had to go take a call and Rerun held the football for him instead.
Okay, or how about Archie perpetually stuck between Betty and Ronnie?
If you don't like your options, make another option.
