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!

Wait, aren't the Hoenn Battle Frontier and Sinnoh Battle Tower having a specialized kind of challenge where no EXP is gained with your own Pokemon when you can use them? (My hazy memory does not remember this detail anymore, but that's what I remember.) Also, funny enough, Snivy learns Leaf Tornado at LEVEL 16. Still, even with the Battle Frontier and Tower battles omitted and Team Rocket's losses nerfed or even omitted, Even a Pikachu at Lv40 (Yes, pre-Hoenn) with the worst EVs and IVs can't be KO'd by a Lv16 Snivy. These are hypothetical battle calcs of the maximum damage a Lv16 Snivy can do to a Lv40 Pikachu without stat boosts or drops, assuming game calculations are followed: (Lv16 Naughty Nature (+Atk, -SpD) Snivy with 6 Perfect IVs, 252 Atk EVs) VS (Lv40 Mild Nature (+SpA, -Def) Pikachu with 6 zero IVs, EVs disregarded) _Lvl 16 252+ Atk Snivy Tackle vs. Lvl 40 0 HP / 0- Def Pikachu on a critical hit: 11-13 (14.1 - 16.6%) -- possible 6HKO_ (Lv16 Rash Nature (+SpA, -SpD) Snivy with 6 Perfect IVs, 252 SpA EVs) VS (Lv40 Rash Nature (+SpA, -SpD) Pikachu with 6 zero IVs, EVs disregarded) _Lvl 16 252+ SpA Snivy Leaf Tornado vs. Lvl 40 0 HP / 0- SpD Pikachu on a critical hit: 19-24 (24.3 - 30.7%) -- 99.9% chance to 4HKO_ Flipping the switch... Surprisingly enough, A Lv16, 6IV Snivy with a Defense-hindering nature and no Defense EVs but holding an Eviolite (which is Gen 5 introduced) may withstand a Quick Attack from the worst IV, EVs disregarded Lv 61 Pikachu with a low roll. (Lv61 Naughty Nature (+Atk, -SpD) Pikachu with 6 zero IVs, EVs disregarded) VS (Lv16 Mild Nature (+SpA, -Def) Snivy with 6 Perfect IVs, 0 Def EVs) _Lvl 61 0+ Atk Pikachu Quick Attack vs. Lvl 16 0 HP / 0- Def Eviolite Snivy: 39-47 (86.6 - 104.4%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO_ The main problem is that Lv40 Pikachu can always 2HKO Lv16 Snivy, even if Pikachu has the worst Attack stat and even holds a Lagging Tail to boot, while Snivy is holding either an Eviolite or Focus Sash.

In the start of Ash coming to Alola I thought that pikachu would be level 100 and when I heard that he is level 40 I was like: Howwwwwwwww.

You forgot to account for plot levels those are all over the place. Every anime or show in general has to undermine the strength acquired by the MC in the previous arc to make the current arc relevant cause writing a consistent story is unpopular or something.

What if snivy just had a focus sash and the trainer powered them up with items, no one shot and more damage, just a hypothesis of mine that has no evidence but could be a possibility
Plague Doctor Arzt
Plague Doctor Arzt преди ден
I believe MatPat covered that at the last part. That even if Pikachu has say Lv50, and he has 0IVs in HP, Defense and Special Defense, and Snivy has say 31 IVs in Attack and Special Attack, the damage is still not enough at high roll. Also, the episode did not show the trainer using an X Attack or something during battle.

You missed the ivs snivey had and his trainer could have had a focus sash then maxed out his ivs before the fight with pickachu by game logic it pauses when you train with bloons in that region so his level 5 could have won cause ash doesnt do ivs

Where would I put my ash’s dad theory? On the newest video or the newest Pokémon video. I’ll do both. Ok so We know ashs dad has not been talked about since episode two in the Pokémon center call but I have a theory about not exactly who he is but what why he disappeared, ash’s dad is an aura guardian. It may sound weird but the evidence makes sense. Ash has a connection with riolu and lucario and can feel their aura like an aura guardian. We know this power can be passed on from generation to generation, so his dad or mum most likely have this ability unless he is adopted which I don’t think this is true but hey it might happen. Aura is also in every living thing and Ash has a strong connection to righteousness and can understand what a Pokémon wants more than most people in the entire Pokémon franchise. They also like exploring the world like Ash does. Aura guardians will help anyone in need and use their aura power to help. However they have controlled this power, while ash hasn’t yet. But we know he has this power with this piece of evidence, his bond with greninja. His bond with his greninja is special, kinda like mega evolution but different, it seems whenever they go into this form you see blue which is aura colour. However it could also be water but it still shows that he can connect to Pokémon unlike anyone we have seen in the anime or the games. Aura guardians usually catch lucario as lucario can use their aura to heal, attack and protect which can come in handy for them. But however Ash didn’t know about the aura guardians when he got his Pokémon and he didn’t know he had this power. I think his dad either left for a mission which took a long time (years) or got stuck and couldn’t go back and/or died. Or He left not telling ash about his power because he wanted ash to have a different life away from any danger or that ash’s dad was in danger and wanted to keep him safe. That’s my theory of ash’s dad so if you have read the whole thing thanks so much. I may be wrong. If anyone finds any evidence against my theory that definitely proves it wrong please tell me. Tysm again

I'm late to the video but hey, I'm here. So personal theory I've had (probably late to this conclusion too) on why Ash is an idiot, besides weak writing, is because he is written for the audience. He is a literary device to help the audience navigate the pokemon world. We do see him learn and get batter as a trainer but he kind of soft resets with each new region my guess to introduce the new pokemon/lore that comes with the new regions plus we know the show doesn't target their older audiences. They've already been hooked onto the games and merchandise so they need to focus on bringing in the new and younger crowd. As much as people dragged Alola for the animation change and some weird Super Sentai/Power Ranger episodes, I have a genuine appreciation for that series. They dedicate more time to showing Ash actively training with his pokemon, he is actually shown to be pretty smart in battles and with pokemon in general, is rather emotionally intelligent, and not so much the punching bag for all jokes like in the original. They still show him as not book smart but they didn't use that to degrade his character. I get OG Pokemon and Alola are written within vastly different eras but character wise, Alola had the better writing.

im just amazed that pokemon has continued this long. And someone put ash ketchum in the pokemon hall of fame. This dude is running train in multiple countries. Pikachu too, whats the life span of a pokemon? Pikachu is a mouse type, so it living 23 yrs to the date of this comment IS AMAZING!!! Thats a good question, does Ash just get new pikachu because they shouldn't be living this long. Also, how does Ash not age? hes easily in his mid to late 30's by now...

OR, the games are like Final Fantasy and you only get to do cooler things when your level is high enough, and the anime about it has no mechanics like that because it only shows the Pokemon evolve or learn new moves when they're ready.

Yeah, that would be right, if it was in the games, but in the anime, every hit you land or take seems to acount for EXP, making it so every team rocket blasting of plus Ash's off camera training and all of hiss lost battles would give have given him EXP

Probably safe to say 3 things. 1: Pikachu is clearly God Tier. 2: He also has the ever important thing in TV land, plot armor.(Pays to be the face of the franchise eh Pikachu.) 3: Ash is not a good trainer he just lucked out with the most OP pokemon in existance apparently.

I don't think it's good to assume Team Rockets Pokémon level up the same as ash's pikachu. No EXP is gained from losing a battle. Also, Meowth is a more interesting case because he rarely uses an attack at all.

I have a theory about the Snivey that defeated Pikachu, and it involves *R*. Anyone who has played Detective Pikachu or saw the movie will know what R is. It's a chemical that overpowers pokemon to unreasonable levels for a short amount of time, at the cost of the trainer's ability to command it, and the pokemon becoming extremely angry. I believe that Snivey was given R, and was able to defeat Pikachu because of it. My explanation as to how Sniveys trainer was still able to command it is that at the end of the game, a new version of R was made, and this one had the ability to let the pokemon recognise its trainer. In fact, a common side effect of R is red eyes, and even if they're not blazing red, Snivey has naturally red eyes which could possibly hide this fact. The only real downside to this theory is that R was destroyed at the end of the game, but who knows? Maybe R lives on...

Pikachu in Season 1, ep.5: Manages to electrocute to death an Onix, a Rock/Ground Pokémon immune to Electric damage. Also Pikachu in Season 1, ep.77: Loses to a Bellsprout which isn't even ground-type because he's somehow immune to electric. I think we can tell Pikachu's power is whatever serves the scenario.

Hello Matpat and other theorists. I have a thing I am working on currently. WHEN TF DOES BLACK AND WHITE COME IN!? I have an opposition, though. I’ve figured out that Black and White come 8 years after Emerald, and emerald is at the same time as Red & Blue(games). My opposition is that whoever sees this helps me out- but you don’t have to! I’m also increasingly working on it as I go along, and once i’m done I will edit this comment with the time! I’m determined to figure it out before Legends comes out! Edit: IT COMES 3 YEARS AFTER THE GAME BEFORE IT. I DID THE(very simple) MATH!

Idea for game theory!: (Pokémon o-o) what are ‘berries’ and what do they actually do? (For example in Pokémon go, you can feed them to wild Pokémon, it either helps the catch rate or ups the amount of that specific Pokémon candy, you may also feed them to your buddy Pokémon for raising friendship, and heal Pokémon in gyms (that are your colour) to heal them, yet in other games these exact berries are inexistent) I haven’t done a deep dive but am interested in the outcome of this theory
