Ah, I do like your 'bad' Ash. Interns of what you can do to refine this cosplay, I guess it all depends on what direction you want to take. Do you want it to be really bad @$$. Chains, more leather, maybe rips in the jeans. I'm not sure what you're doing for footwear, but combat boots would add a subtle edge.
If I was a cosplay, a perfect cosplay, how would you know it was really me?

It looks really good! I have mad nostalgia of that generation 1 Pokedex you're holding, nice touch. Did you craft the hat and jacket yourself or know someone that does leather working?

I think a similarly styled "bad boy" Pikachu perched on your shoulder would help elevate this cosplay to the next level. Possibly have some small scuffed up pokeballs dangling off a tactical belt or bandoleer?

Maybe wear your hat backwards. It might look a little silly, but still.

Or give the above mentioned shoulder-Pikachu a ballcap as well.
