Episode #2: Pokemon Emergency!- Fuk da Police!
There are virtually no instances of police stations in the games… except in the most recent. But there are none in Kanto that we know of.
Recap of Episode 1 Part 2: EXP
I started up a yellow version for the purpose of gaining knowlege of Pikachu exp gain. I realize this might be different for the other versions, but it fits my needs as an accessable way for me to check level gain for a Pikachu. BUT ANYWAY HERE ARE LISTINGS FOR LEVEL GAIN AND STUFF
ACCORDING TO YELLOW VERSION
total from spearow- 46 Spearow @ ~ level 4 (33 exp each)= 1518 exp total
Lvl 5 = 91 to 6 @ 1427 left
lvl 6= 127 to 7 @ 1300 left
lvl 7= 169 to 8 @ 1131 left
lvl 8= 217 to 9 @ 914 left. Learned Thunder Wave
lvl 9= 271 to 10 @ 643 left
lvl 10= 331 to 11 @ 312 left
lvl 11= 397 with 85 left to level 12. Learned Quick Attack
So that means Pikachu is at level 11 and his attacks should include (from the new movests)
Thundershock, growl, tail whip and thunderwave. This is just really important for the rest of the series :D
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: Size Matters
Remember Pallet Town and it’s huge population? Here’s Veridian City in the anime.
And here it is in game (most recent).
I just… either the programmers are lazy or the animators like to mess with us.
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: It’s Electric
Ok, wait. Stop. What attack is that? It looks WAAAY more than a basic thundershock. I don’t believe this Pikachu has gained any experience yet in this episode. And a look at bulabpedia will show that it doesn’t learn Thunder until level 50.
HOWEVER, one thing they did get right was the increased power Thunder gets from rain! So justified? Not really.
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: THE BIRDS
Alright, here’s something to mull over. What’s wrong with this picture?
You might be like, “oh they’re just Spearow about to attack Ash.” That’s all fine and dandy, but the problem here is that Pokemon in game are ALMOST NEVER attacking people. And when they are:
it’s a stupid mistake
(I’m looking at you Professor Birch),
as dictated by a trainer
(Lance in Gold/Silver… pic unrelated),
or shadow Pokemon from Pokemon Colosseum/XD.
So back to my first observation, Ash is simply a moron.
AAAAND We’re back!
it’s been like… a month or two? Sorry about not posting BUT NO ONE CARES LET’S POKEMON PHYSICS!
Episode 1: Bikes and crap
The problem here isn’t the pikachu in the bike. Just… wouldn’t it be cool if you could keep pokemon in the little baskets? I think it would be super cute. :3 Also it’s raining a few seconds later in this scene. Weather was not implemented until Gen 2. So technically this episode is ahead of it’s time!
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: HM 03 SURF
Oh come on really? I had to wait until WAAAAAY later in the game to actually be able to surf. Ash you douche, I HIGHLY doubt your Pikachu can surf and you don’t even have the right gym badges to use that move anyway run-on sentence. And Ash doesn’t even have a water Pokemon. Everyone knows that the only trainer class that can swim are the swimmers. Ugh, not like this river really exists anyway…
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: River
Er… everyone is familiar with Route 1 right? If not here’s a map:
So… why is there a river here? (It appears when Ash is fleeing the Spearow)
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: Wild 46 Pokemon Battle!
Ok ok, Ash pissed a Spearow off. Now he’s pitched in face to face combat with 46 Spearow:
Or ass to face whatever. Point is, it’s impossible to run into 46 Pokemon at once. 46 random battles yeah but… this is just stupid.
HOWEVER, wild double battles do exist. They were introduced in Gen IV and carried to Gen V. It’s a neat feature which I doubt will go past two wild Pokemon.
Episode #1: Pokemon- I Choose You!: Other Pokemon
Ok, skipping a few other things here. Got the caps for the rest of the episode and I found a few other misplaced pokemon:
Like really the only Pokemon that is even remotely close to here is Mankey… and they added that in the Yellow Version.
(Also I realize there’s a Magicarp, but it’s also implied a river is on this Route. I’ll cover that later.)
