> Pokémon uses amazing moves, take severe wounds and compete in very tight competitions
> Trainers stand behind lines like faggots, giving orders that Pokémon can already use without them
> Pokémon after battle receives a free trip to the nearby hospital
> Trainer receives money, prestige and glory
Why is this allowed? It's clear who is the one doing the whole work.
> Kind of makes you wonder why army generals are remembered at all.
Army generals have an extremely hard job. They need to coordinate hundred of thousands of soldiers, examine carefully the battlefields and all possible complications, weather, geo, supplies, etc and a tiny mistake results in a lot of casualties.
A trainer just tell Pokémon to use moves, which wild Pokémon can do by themselves. Do you really need someone to just keep shouting 'thunderbolt'?
This actually reminded me of Korrina and Lucario, where Lucario was usually just doing things without Korrina really telling him, then during the Gym battle with Ash Lucario decided to wait for Korrina's orders and ended up performing much worse than he was before.
its explained that pokemon fight like that in the wild too. And actively want to get better.
what trainers do is give them better tactics, and stop the match before anyone is seriously wounded, only fighting until a KO happens.
Compare boxing coaches to bar brawls with broken bottles and knives.
Which is why pokemon show up to trainers in the wild. They want to be caught and trained, or failing that, at least engage in a match that's completely safe to participate in and hopefully get a bit better from it.
Does that apply to Audinos?
Audino's just aren't very suited for direct battle.
They try really hard. You can see them frantically spamming random moves at you. That's the best they know how to do.
Its just nearly all their moves heal things instead of hurting them. And being a wild pokemon, they don't know enough to really tell the difference.
And their constant failure would of course makes them want to get stronger to defend themselves even more. What if something really dangerous comes along next time? I must train harder! Have at you huma-spbluh.
okay. you win. I'll just lay here and rest for a while.
Wow I got wrecked. What if something actually dangerous came along next time? I'd be toast! I really need to train harder. Have at you huma-spbluh! okay. you win. I'll just lay here and rest for a while.
Wow. I got wrecked. What if something actually dangerous came along...
Yeah, but my point is that Pokémons deserve a higher share of credit. It's like Doc Louis getting famous instead of Little Mac.
Doc Louis taught him the star punch.
Also, Little Mac has more autonomy in the ring. He doesn't just swing wildly unless Doc "says okay, now punch him in the nose. okay now dodge. okay now uppercut"
Little mac is a person making most of his own decisions, with pointers being given between rounds. Pokemon are for the most part fairly smart wild animals.
That's silly. Wild Pokémon also have autonomy. Does Pokémon get stupider after they get captured? Wild Pokémon seems to grasp things such as 'throw fire on the plant' and 'dodge, don't take it like an idiot' pretty well.
You give trainers to little credit
Trainerd do the managing:
>Picking what moves the pokemon will learn
>Provide food shelter and healing(yes, the PC does this but it is a trainer's responsability take his pokemon there)
>Device trainer routines(In games this means EV Training
>Tactical support during battles
If a pokemon can battle better without, you are just a shit trainer.
Also, Pokemon join humas to become stronger, they choose to do so.
They are in to get stronger, that is what they want.
They grow stronger with humans, that is why they join us. That is all there is.
Pokemon don't have human intelligence, they just thrash each other, while a human can employ strategy. They also don't have a full view of the battlefield while the trainer does, so they trust their commands.
> Picking what moves the pokemon will learn
And yet wild Pokémon can have different moves. Also isn't that four move cap gameplay?
> Provide food shelter and healing
Wild Pokémon easily hunt for food, berries also heal, solve hunger and are everywhere.
> Device trainer routines
A Wild Pokémon can battle as much as he want, if he wants that is.
> Tactical support during battles
You mean using a potion while your Pokémon loses a turn because he cannot act while you are opening your bag?
Really, you haven't made a point. Several wild Pokémon actually fought better than trained ones.
What you are forgeting that the games make pretty clear that friendship with humans makes them grow stronger.
It helps both parties
>And yet wild Pokémon can have different moves.
Also isn't that four move cap gameplay?
Access to TM and Move Tutors.
>Wild Pokémon easily hunt for food, berries also heal, solve hunger and are everywhere.
Yes but with a Trainer that is, in theory asured.
Instead of hunting or gathering they can focus on training.
Also while berries do heal, they can't be compared to human medicine.
>A Wild Pokémon can battle as much as he want, if he wants that is.
Yes that is but a human makes it easier
That reminds that Charizard's dex entry states that they fly around looking for battles
>You mean using a potion while your Pokémon loses a turn because he cannot act while you are opening your bag?
Planing and that sort of stuff.
>Several wild Pokémon actually fought better than trained ones.
Have you ever lost to a wild pokemon?
Again, this would be the trainer's fault for being shit.
In Pokemon, being a good trainer means you love your pokemon and treat them with utmost respect. So logically, the trainers who are celebrated are the ones who have a deep commitment to their Pokemon. Giovanni may be a great battler, but he isn't respected or celebrated as a good trainer
Audino's have massive orgies, according to that one copypasta
Do they really? How many times have you seen a wild pokemon use an immuned move against you in combat, when you know they have a better move they could be using but aren't?
There's a reason they give the trainers (mild) AI, but the wild pokemon just choose moves at random.
wild pokemon have moves based on eggmoves and whatever their level is. its not random.
choosing a synergistic combination out of what they learn through level up is the part that takes expertise.
they use diverse moves. just without any form of planning. they just pick something off the top of their heads and do it.
Pokemon need coaches. Without our human ability to not only sympathize with others, explain and rationalize to others why we feel the way we do, Pokemon would live in a lawless society where only the fierce survive.
The symbiosis comes from us teaching them how to think above the level of fight-or-flight, and be more compassionate, this aids their evolution of a frontal and temporal lobe(the sympathetic and emotional parts of the brain) ushering them into their next evolution.
We are the catalysts, the agents of progress. We push them beyond their self-placed limits, and nurture them when their biological parent is not around to do so.
>there is a developed medicine that heals less than eating a fruit
>many other medicines are exactly on par with the effects of raw fruit
>lets not even get to the whole vending machine beverage thing in here, where medicines cost more but do less healing than soft drinks. Lets just focus on fruit, and how for everything other than hyper potions, max potions, PPmaxs, and full restores, there's a naturally occurring supplement that far surpasses it.
