    Competitive in the anime =/= competitive in the game. There's been utter domination by Bellsprout, Magikarp, Tynamo, Sandshrew, and lots of other stuff. Anime has some weird stuff going on but is it hard to accept that not everything is decided by base stats?

    Exactly. What do base stats and abilities mean when you have love and trust?

    maybe that's why pikachu sucks all of the sudden. Ash doesn't like Pikachu as much as back in DPP.

    I always thought it was Transexual in Heat because it's the only legendary that can be either gender.

    Since when has anime battling ever made sense?

    Pikachu can't harm an Aerodactyl but it can dominate a Rhydon by aiming for the horn.

    Could it just be that when ridiculous pokemon just totally own Ash's pokemon they're just of a much higher level? Maybe his pikachu just couldn't do anything to that bellsprout because it was L100.
