>Ash had 45 badges when he said this
>Actually 52 if you count the Frontier Symbols
>Pikachu losing to a fucking Magikarp
It was a level 100 magikarp with the perfect stats. Shits scary yo.
And then there was this fucker.
I kind of assumed ash would have achieved some kind of notoriety or legend by now, considering this shit has been going on since I was a kid. Are you actually telling me ash is still just a fucking nobody, pikachu loses to basic ass pokemon, and they just keep doing the same show over and over again every season? Hasn't he won a couple tournaments by now?
God Ash should have fucking gained status from being the only person in the whole League to knock out Tobias' Darkrai, let alone his Latios.
At least in Sinnoh, they actually had some form of continuity and recognized that Ash was a veteran trainer in previous Leagues. Paul being pissed that Ash beat the Battle Frontier was pretty great.
He almost became a Frontier Brain in Sinnoh if I remember correctly. So he's one of the best on the region but then he goes over to another and suddenly he has the skills of Youngster Joey.
>So he's one of the best on the region but then he goes over to another and suddenly he has the skills of Youngster Joey.
It's the cost of consuming the youth of his partner females. Every time he moves to another girl he loses all the skills he got out of the previous one.
That does sound like a little plothole but not when you consider that ass is still in a coma and redreams new adventures until his family finally shuts down the machine which keeps him alive.
Pokedex in one game mentions that magikarp can splash over mountains given enough practice, potentially. If you an direct that velocity towards something splash becomes like tackle with the power of a hyper beam.
From what I remember the general consensus on Pokedex entries is that they tend to be greatly exaggerated and unreliable because they are literally written by a ten year old in most games.
I can't help but wonder why the job of filling out the pokedex is always left to ten year olds in that case. I mean what's even the point of a complete encyclopedia if all of the information in it is false.
Hopefully Pokken Tournament will fill that gap.
I miss my legendary ocean deck
No, Pokedex are nice.
Its like a species dex, and the subspecies list for humans go by Olympic world records.
So you capture a level 5-10 black plateu runner, but the Dex Entry is for Hussain Bolt.
Why hasn't the new generation of marketing execs and writers decided to pass Ash's torch? Surely the ones working at the company now were at least pre-teens when pokemon first aired?
Or is it really japanese-y to drill a method over and over until it fails?
