Is it okay for the anime to ignore type immunities when they don't make sense or should it be more accurate to the games?
yeah that's fine. Anime is based on games and doesn't follow the games completely plus it looks cooler.
And it makes sense. I mean why would a light saber shaped as a bone not hit a luchador bird?
>immaterial lightsaber bone rush
>when bone rush was Marowak's signature move
>Marowak, who had a physical bone club on him at all times
I'M GETTING REALLY FUCKING SICK OF PHYSICAL MOVES HAVING RETARDED EPHEMERAL FORMS IN THE ANIME.
>realizing almost every ground type attack is either a projectile (even despite being physical like bonemerang) or a physical attack
Ground immunity should apply to only earthquake and then make flying/levitate mons only resist the others.
If anything the game should be more accurate to the anime. The anime usually makes a lot more sense than the games do. And that's fine. What I'm saying is that are fine as they are and you need stop being a little whiny bitch,
No. Hell! No.
Game is perfect as it.
Game freak know what their doing.
if I remember there was an episode where a snotty kid that said Misty was easy to beat since he used a simulator(which looked like RBY) to beat her with a Weepinbell
they proceeded to have a real battle and the kid gets his shit kicked in.
the anime established it pretty early that Games =/= Anime
I'm 21. But Pokemon is targeted towards underage kids so it should come to no surprise that /vp/'s crawling with underage faggots.
Since ripping your own arm off and using it like a club is too violent for your puritan eyes, how about this: Lucario's paw spike thingies grow extremely long and he breaks the spike off.
>the anime should go back to Pokemon being able to use more than four moves.
Fuck no. The fact that Pokemon have 4 very distinct moves and no more is what makes the battles so interesting. I've already said that in the anime thread, it's the perfect occasion for mindgames, strategies, use of anime physics and gives the Trainers a much better role rather than just "oh he's using this attack? I guess I'll break through with THIS attack"
Having a limited arsenal and using it to its fullest by adapting your orders and considering each attack is different in terms of physics and battle impact, it's even better to see Satoshi come up with those strategies and win the battle in the most kickass way.
>Thunderbolt: continous flow of electricity, not physical aspect
>Electro Ball: electricity condensed into "physical" form, can be used to perform aerial gimmicks, can be knocked back like an actual ball
>Iron Tail: The "sword attack", allows good CQC and use of physics (break the ground, use of the enemy attack's momentum to gain mobility, etc.), can repel enemy attacks
>Quick Attack: Priority move, perfect for fight initiation or closing, optimum for closing distance quickly, can be used in conjunction with another attack for a stronger impact
Each Pokemon has 4 attacks that have very different properties and make a very definite fighting style and it's up to the Trainer to draw as much advantage from it as possible.
Anime isn't limited by RPG mechanics.
In the games, Bone Rush is only a Ground-type move because Cubone and Marowak are, so they can get STAB.
The move has nothing to do with the ground. It's just hitting your enemy with a bone. There's zero reason why Hawlucha shouldn't be affected.
Since based Director appeared and people started giving a fuck.
People shit of the anime just because they are biaised regarding its poor past iterations. The current attempt is honestly great and you should try it.
Not as a whole, there's a shitload of fillers as usual and some side stories don't have as much impact as people think they do. The Gym Leader matches are just nicely orchestrated, and the anime is still a nice battle shounen with lots of teasing, competition angst, some training, friendship... The usual.
XY&Z showed some nice anime only gimmicks and a plot appeared with much suffering so it's all good.
Then don't make them use the fucking move. Over 600 moves and they choose the one that is not only a signature attack of another Pokemon, but is physically impossible in this current situation.
I'm so fucking sick of this Lucario dicksucking.
Listen, dumbass, the Lucario in this situation created a bone out of fucking nowhere just so it could use Bone Rush. This attack requires a bone to use. Why did it need to create something out of thin air so it could use an attack it couldn't possibly use otherwise? There are 621 moves to select from, and the animators decide "let's make him form something out of energy so he can use this move instead of letting him use something more natural".
I'm not complaining about the logic behind the move actually hitting. Bone Rush requires a physical bone, and he just magics up one to use this 1/621 move. Why not use something that makes more sense, like Close Combat, or Metal Claw, or even Dragon Pulse?
Bone Rush is a move Lucario actually learns by level-up in the games
Since aura/energy are Lucario's whole schtick, and it doesn't carry a bone around, the logical conclusion is that Lucario uses its power to make an energy
That, and it just looks cool
>Pokemon can use his aura to create a sphere that damages someone
>complains that said Pokemon uses his aura to create something different
Bone Rush has different characteristics: it can be used as a CQC attack, as a bat to send projectiles back or as a projectile in itself if I remember correctly. It's a versatile attack that also allows to have Ground typing to create a sense of danger with Pikachu's type. Besides, Lucario learns Bone Rush in the games so I don't see what you are getting so autistic about when the source material goes along.
Since Lucario seems to be loosely based on Anubis (humanoid with a canine head, being able to judge whether someone is good or bad by reading their soul/aura), I think Bone Rush is just a reference to the staff Anubis is often depicted carrying, or to Anubis's role as the God of Death
No. The argument was originally the aspect of said attack, with was explained with Lucario being able to have his aura take form the way he wants. Then you guys threw in the excuse of "muh signature attack" when it was actually not one. Then you said "the Lucario in this situation created a bone out of fucking nowhere", point that answered before.
Your complaint about the fact that Lucario actually learns the attack in the games comes from this message I'm replying to, and not before. If you are too autistic to thing that Lucario cannot have his Aura take the form and properties of a bone, it's not out problem. Send a fucking letter to GF and stop whining here, you goalpost-moving idiot
There was a manga called Pokemon Phantom Thief 7 that depicted Lucario's Bone Rush as it just punching the other Pokemon.
Needless to say, it looks stupid, which is why the anime's lightsaber interpretation carried over into Adventures and Pokken.
The only thing that happened was that Hawlucha got pushed back by the Bone Rush. The damage didn't happen. It isn't like that time where Hawlucha tried to Flying Press a Trevenant only to just phase through because it was a Ghost and Ghost immunity.
Both those things are actually rooted in the same concept. Anubis and other jackal-headed Egyptian deities, such as Saqqar, were associated with death because jackals would dig up buried human remains to munch on them. Just like dogs chew on bones in cartoons or real life.
>trying to apply logic to Pokemon
We're talking about a superpowered humanoid canine who can throw hadoukens and turn the spikes on his wrists into Wolverine claws.
Lucario's whole theme is energy attacks, and Pokemon use energy to supplement physical attacks all the time, so a bone-shaped staff made out of energy isn't a stretch.
