Game Theory: You're WRONG About Ash's Pikachu! (Pokemon)

SUBSCRIBE to Never Miss A Game Theory! ►

Today is the day, Theorists! The day that I, once and for all, prove that Ash's Pikachu is WEAK! That's right! There is no Level 100 here. Throughout the anime, Pikachu has proved to not be as strong of a contender as we were led to believe. Let's get into the evidence!

  • This is also assuming that every battle is shown, each episode doesn't pick up exactly where the last one left off soo 59 is actually the minimum he could be.. but for the sake of the snivy battle; yes, no matter what at Pikachus weakest possible numbers there is no way he should lose that battle. The only option that would make sense is if Pikachu went into the battle already weary, and snivy had a berry, item or trait that allowed it to survive the quick attack to 1hp. Then his attack just finished off the already weakened pikachu.... or..... ash/pikachu threw the fight.... which is most plausible.

  • Well mat pat did state that the game and shows game mechanics are different and I remember from the show that Ash trained with his pokemon like all of the time and maybe that would affect Pikachus level? Just a Theory a RANDOM THEORY

  • I just had this thought, The Pokemon world has reset. Some people like ash remember this because either he is with the being who's doing it or, he is the one doing it. This would explain how ash seem to never age, ever after all those years no change, no height growth no muscle growth no nothing. Now time reset is possible in Pokemon world as multiple legendary Pokemon has time control powers, hell mewtwo already did it. To answer why? Well let's say you finished a game, all the achievements and trophies won. Then what? We restart the game, take new routes, explore what you haven't already. Similar to how ash a kid who wants to catch all the Pokemon catches less than 10 Pokemon per season, and it's not because of trying, he just let them be. He doesn't even try to evolve his Pokemon. This also explain how he's at the right place and time to see legendary, mythical or poke god's. I mean coincidence? Really that many times? So I think ash is a time traveler, maybe pichachu too, that's why he knew so many advance moves, but as he's back in his old body they aren't that effective

  • black and white, there's no way that snivy was lvl5 and using leaf tornado to take out Pikachu lol... just sayin, professor had ot have primed that Pokémon for that doesn't learn that move till lvl 16 and even then it wouldn't be strong enough to 2HKO a lvl40 Pikachu! no matter how squishy a Pikachu is in general!! that snivy was special breed and trained by that regions professor for that trainer for some "smurfing" in the league of that region...

  • I'm not sure if it has been addressed but MatPat has taken in the fact that pokemon that belongs to a trainer yields more exp right? I would also like to add that in the games, Ash's Pikachu was distributed 4 times. In three of those, Pikachu held a Light Ball so I presume that Pikachu in the anime also has one.
