Yes. very.
BTW. It's, Actually 721 known Pokémon.

>>25046079
was it ever even confirmed in the anime that you have to catch them all to be a master? i remember it being pretty vague.
>>
being a pokemon master has nothing to do with catching all pokemon
>>
>>25046122
You can't be a Pokémon Master.
If You don't have them all.

Gee, OP, it's quite clear who's being retarded here.

Lie.

According to A Sneak Peek at Pokémon, one of the tasks to become a Pokémon Master is to capture all Pokémon.

I always thought the qualifications were to become a champion and complete the pokedex.

Probably because in the anime world, that's virtually impossible and kinda morally wrong when it comes to catching legendaries.

According to A Sneak Peek at Pokémon, one of the tasks to become a Pokémon Master is to capture all Pokémon.
The book Charizard, Go! states that a Pokémon Master must catch one of every kind of Pokémon and become a member of the Pokémon League.
According to The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, a Pokémon Master is simply an elite Trainer who is considered a professional and regularly takes part in Pokémon League competitions.

maybe you motherfuckers need to watch the Johto opening again

it clearly states "but you still need to catch them all"

yes, you can copypasta bulbapedia, good job.
a sneak peek is the dub promo video.
charizard, go! is a book based on the dub.

You only have to be a true master of one Pokémon to be a Pokémon master.

Or like, six maybe.

So, in short, the title "Pokémon Master" has no definite meaning and can be achieved through a variety of accomplishments and not just one.

Way to prove nothing.

>>25046204
Nope. All Pokémon.

The Official Pokémon Collector's Sticker Bookimplies that one is made a Pokémon Master bycatching all Pokémon.

People only care about who the champion is. Not whether you caught Wurmple Gen 6 edition or not.

Ash is horrible terrible both at catching and training his pokemon. The only faggots who defend him are the ones who have "he was my childhood hero" issue

No.
You can't be a Pokémon Master.

On the first page of the book, the pronunciation for ‘Pokémon’ is listed as ‘POH-kay-mahn’.

yeah, fantastic source.

You have to catch every Pokémon.

How to be the Pokémon Master.
1. Capture All Pokémon.

2. Train them all.

3. Become the Pokémon league champion.
>>
>>25046187
>>25046195
Guess which of those three were written by people that had actually talked to someone involved with the production of the anime.
Hint: Not the ones written by murricans

He's going for the least tedious task first - becoming a Pokemon League Champion. Which, unlike in the video games, isn't so easy; there's plenty of competitors going for the same title in each region.

Sure doesn't

>>25046581
>isn't so easy
Maybe if he decided to take along literally any legendary from the movies? He's befriended them all, and they would all definitely be willing to fight alongside him. Some of his relationships with the legendaries are even better than those with his regular team.

The only excuse for Ash not winning is bad writing.

>>25046616
That's the western tagline. I think the Japanese one roughly translates to "Everyone get Pokemon!" or something along those lines.

Okay, English and Japanese taglines aside Oak gives Ash the Pokedex to capture and record every Pokémon.

So whatcha gonna do, brother

Whatcha gonna do

WHEN ALL THE POKEMON

>>
>>25046936
You mean they're recorded before most of them are captured.

Which still requires at least SOME explaining.
>>
>>25046206
Pokemon Master is a vague goal used to justify an endless quest.
>>
>>25046941
Already done in an episode.

Catching them all isn't a requirement to be a Pokemon Master.

Not to mention you can get them all but you can't actually catch them all.
>>
>>25046943
This, and your best clues are the "trainer card stars" from the video games.
>>
>>25046187
>a Pokémon Master is simply an elite Trainer who is considered a professional and regularly takes part in Pokémon League competitions

So the little nigga has half of it down. He has been to every league ever.
>>
>>25046079

I don't think there is such a thing as a Pokemon "Master" in the anime. The characters in the anime seem to know what a Pokemon Master is but it's never fully explained. There has never been a Pokemon Master either, the Region Champions are never referred to as Pokemon Masters. Ash becoming the strongest trainer of them all is a goal that AT LEAST makes more sense, rather than stating that he wants to be a Pokemon Master because we dont know what the fuck that is or means.

Catching all the Pokemon is literally impossible in the anime.
>>
>>25047334
They call Lance a master.
>>
>>25046079
Considering how exceptional type specialists like Wallace and Drayden are called "<type> masters" in the anime, I think being a Pokémon Master just means being an incredibly good trainer who can work with all kinds of pokémon.
>>
>>25046079
Being a Yokai Watch Master means that you have to befriend lots of Digimons, and use them in Pokemon Battles, and win alot of Monster Rancher matches so that your NetNavi gets popular and people will want to use your Persona after summoning you for 50 Macca.
>>
>>25046079
It means he can command any Pokemon without being the owner
>>
In the anime it's more about beating everyone who calls themselves a trainer (mostly getting all the gym badges as proof of your prowess) it's not to capture every single God Damn pocket monster. I believe ash really only has to scan them with his pokedex to get the info oak wants or whatever senile professor has him running all over different regions.
