pikachu never becomes strong enough to deal with bigger, badder foes, despite the fact he's been with ash a long time. so the logical explanation is that his level randomly resets

He has the You need to login to view this link glitch from the original Pokemon that lets you level past 100 but after a certain point puts you back at 1.

yeah, pokemon don't level up from levels or even learn attacks from levels it's all a bunch of friendship and training together nonsense. Technically the games are an approximation for the world of the show and manga because they are far more elaborate. Onyx using rock slide outside of a cave or gym is nonsense in the show.

i actually like the "realism" of the show more than the game's. i mean four moves only? surf or hail and snow in the desert? makes no sense at all and only exist cuz game limitations

Pokemon actually do level up within the show and learn certain moves at certain levels. I remember seeing an episode where Professor Oak made a guest appearance to act as a judge in a contest. I think it was during the Diamond and Pearl seasons. I think the games serve more purpose to the stuff behind the scenes, such as being able to press B to stop a Pokemon from evolving while in the show Pokemon and trainers nonchalantly pass off evolution, whether they notice it or not. May's cyndaquil learned flamethrower, making it level 40, however it never showed signs of evolving.

You're saying Ash had a Bulbasaur and Squirtle over level 50? Why were the fights so tense if he was rocking constantly over-leveled pokemon?

For consistency's sake, it would make sense if his Pokemon's levels went down but kept the same moveset each time they visited a new region. There's not much in the way of logic you can place side-by-side with the game's structure considering how much different things are though. In the tv series they could level on a different factor, such as gaining exp and leveling up, however they don't gain stat bonuses, but instead relying solely on what skills and training they do outside of battle. In a lot of the more recent episodes they often use strategy and fight new Pokemon and each Pokemon fights totally differently than the last.

TL;DR - His Pokemon scale down and keep their moves to keep the show going.

I don't mean post-indigo league. bulba and squirts learn their final moves squarely within the Kanto region.

I've got no idea then. The newer episodes follow more closely to the games, but I don't know about the first few seasons.

In the latest season everyone does stereotypical French stuff and it's pretty funny. I've got to head off now though, good talking to you.

Wouldnt it be cool if we could reset pokemons levels ? And if we did we would get an random IV stat to max out (31) .

So pokemon level when they have enough experience as in they are more able the more they fight or watch others fight, well what if pokemon that live in other regions fight diffrently? This would mean that pikachu, while able to **** up in kanto, is useless in a new region

Pikachu would obviously be, like, level 100 by now. We cant have a TV show with the main character having a lvl 100 Pikachu. I mean, obviously, that bitch Snivey would have gotten totally owned by a fully powered Pikachu. Zekrom did mess with Pikachu in the first episode. So yeah, basically Zekrom reset Pikachu's level.

Is it ********? Yes it is. Even a reset Pikachu should be able to totally destroy that faggots Snivey.

Stupid show. I fast forwarded to the episode Charizard came back then stopped watching it.

Pikachu is one of the worst pokémon that Ash owns.

He got beaten by a guy who had JUST gotten his new starter Pokemon.
So a level 5 pokemon and a kid with 0 experience and Ash got destroyed.

Is that what actually happens though? if i remember correctly in at the beginning of every new region or what ever, pikachu goes through some electric BS and then he's weak as ****. Whats the deal?
