one of my favorite things about the pokemon universe is how the humans are esp. the bad guys
like mob boss giovonni can pull out a glock and waste my 10 y/o ass but he doesn’t he just accepts that i knocked out his cat and hands me money
I have my own theory that humans in the Pokemon world don’t even have a concept of direct violence. They settle all disputes through Pokemon battles, but also a human without pokemon is entirely helpless. This might lend its self further to the notion that humans can’t venture outside of towns without bringing trained pokemon to protect them. Like, can Pokemon world humans even throw a punch? I think the notion of humans ever directly using violence against one another without pokemon involved is something they can’t even think of.
In one of the movies ash just straight up clocks lucario
ash is innovative in a world where humans can’t punch
*steeples fingers* okay so I know this is a humorous fun joke but like…
Let’s think about this for a moment.
Mob Boss Giovanni probably has a gun. Given the level of technological development in pokemon’s universe it’s very unlikely that nobody invented gunpowder or ever thought to put it together into a weapon, or that Giovanni would procure one.
Let’s also assume the average ten-year-old bright-eyed pokemon trainer is not wearing a bulletproof vest, or has particularly impressive gun dodging abilities.
Giovanni shoots child, Giovanni probably dies immediately.
The HD graphics really make it that much funnier that we all know Oddish is gonna wreck his shit
So I’ve been seeing this sentiment in the comments pretty often so lemme just break it down.
These are Oddish’s base stats.
Nothing too impressive overall, but pay attention to that high Special attack stat.
These are Onix’s stats.
And his weaknesses
For all his size, Onix has great defense, which makes sense. However, his Special defense is horrible and he doesn’t have enough HP for that high defense to matter much this early in the game.
The only damaging attack my Oddish had at this point was absorb, a base 20 power Special Attack. Usually, not that great. However, due to Onix’s nonexistent HP and a lack of Special Defense, and the fact that it is 4x weak to grass moves, that pathetic little absorb, from this tiny radish, fucking obliterated that rock snake in one hit.
It wasn’t even a fight. Oddish just flexed all over Brock’s life. Oddish did the equivalent of a fortnite dance on Onix’s fainted body.

REALLY IMPORTANT FOR POKÉMON LET’S GO
Please please please keep an eye on your pokeball amount. The game automatically switches to the next available pokeball type once you’ve run out and the game does not warn you if your last ball is the Master Ball.
I just watched a streamer who hasn’t saved in forever accidentally catch a tentacool with his Master Ball because he didn’t realize he ran out of every other type. Please save often and keep an eye on how many pokeballs you have.
Before y’all go “IT’S A HACK” or something let me tell you about
the hell I went through to get this baby:
So basically in Pokemon
Yellow you had glitches known as “Mew Glitch” which allowed players to catch a
Mew. Now they left these glitches in the virtual console games, and while
you can send Pokemon over, you can’t send your glitched Mew.
It’s technically supposed
to be an event from “GF” (Gamefreak) with a trainer ID of 22796, and
because PokeBank checks for those two, Mew can’t be sent over. So in other
words, unless your name is GF & you were lucky enough to get the trainer ID
of “22796″ you were out of luck of getting your glitched into SM game–
However, through a series
of glitches, it is possible to change your
name and Trainer ID to fix up your Mew to be sent into SM.
So here’s my tale of my
sufferings (my friends called me a masochist):
First I had to start a new
save file & to make my life easier I named myself “GF”(this was the easiest
part), and then I took my first steps straight into the hell of Viridian Forest
so I can get a level 100 Nidoking Before Brock and breeze through the early parts of the game.
So for those unfamiliar
with this glitch, basically you have to find a long range trainer in Viridian
Forest, hit the start button before he walks up to you, use the escape rope
(THESE STEPS ARE WAY HARDER THAN IT LOOKS, TOOK ME LIKE 5 OR MORE TIMES JUST TO
GET THE FEEL OF WHEN TO HIT THE START BUTTON) and be sure to go into Pewter
City, then find a level 4
Caterpie in the forest (not level 5. Not level 6. Level 4) Then Growl at the Caterpie 6 times. However,
sometimes Caterpie will only let you Growl at them 5 times, so you gotta search
for the right Caterpie which can take time–
Anyway once those
steps are done you go back to Pewter, have the guy blocking
you from leaving Pewter take you to the Gym (<-THIS IS IMPORTANT) and then
walk back to the forest & a message will pop up and then if it works right,
a Level 1 Nidoking.
I say “IF” because if
the Caterpie you growl’d at had a high special or w/e you’ll get a Voltorb. Anyway I had to
repeat this several times just to get the Nidoking. Once that was done
though, things went smooth, then I used the “Underflow Glitch” to get less than
54 EXP to automatically get Nidoking to level 100–
However when I got to
Cerulean, I took a detour. I had misunderstood the Reddit Post I was
reading & used the Mew Glitch. So before I could do the Mew Glitch I
had to catch an Abra (THIS WENT WAY EASIER THAN EXPECTED TBH) and then I had to
do the long trainer glitch with a specific trainer by Cerulean. I used
Teleport to go back to Cerulean, battled the Slowpoke Kid (GROWLED AT HIM 6
TIMES FOR A LEVEL 1 MEW) and the glitch went right. Caught Mew, used the
Underflow Glitch to level it to 100, like Nidoking. Then I did the same
process again against a dude with a Shellder and got ANOTHER level 100
Mew. I later found out it was pointless, but that’s for another time.
Anway. THen, after that I
had to make it to Cinnabar Island. This took a while since you have to
clear a few gyms, get Surf, which is easily like beating half the game.
ONCE I DID THAT, it was
time to do more
glitches. So first, just to make my life a bit easier, the first
glitch I had to do was the Missingno Glitch. To get a “safe”
missingno. I needed to place my nuggets into item slot 6, have a pokemon with a
stat 181,182, 183 (MY NIDOKING THANKFULLY HAD THIS!!) and then do the long
range trainer gltch like with Mew–
But this time I had to go
into Cinnabar Mansion, find a Ditto, have it turn into Nidoking and then fly
back to Cerulean and encounter Missingno. This gave me over 100 nuggets,
and then I swapped nuggets with rare candy, it gave me over 100 rare candies
after I caught missingno.
But that wasn’t the end–
Then I had to sell some
nuggets so I could buy 73 revives. I bought them, did the glitch over again and
encountered that same missingno. to give me exactly 201 revives.
THEN after that, I had to
do another glitch to get this special item called “W SM.” This item
is magical. But it also comes with great danger for if you use it wrong, your game corrupts and you’d have to start completely over.
Anyway to get this special
item, I had to find another Missingno, but this time with a Pokemon with the
Well. Shit. I
don’t have???? A Pokemon??? With Stat 194????
I really thought I was
screwed here. But I wasnt, turns out Articuno will have that stat if I
use some rare candies–so now I gotta get an articuno.
This would have been easier
if I had gotten my Master Ball, but I never did so I’m using Ultra Balls.
Anyway I swim to Articuno, find it in the Seafoam Islands and catch it.
I level it up with Rare
Candies praying that
I’d get Special stat 194. I got 195.
So, I had to reset, and try to capture Articuno again. Caught it, leveled it
up. GOT THE STAT 194 HOWEVER–
I forgot my escape rope so
I was stuck trying to meander around and get out of the seafoam islands. I was
frustrated but I marched on and somehow got out.
Once I got that, I did the
Long Range Trainer Glitch w/ Ditto again, this time with an x accuracy (or was
it speed? Can’t remember)in like my 8th? Slot, and encountered that
Missingno so it could turn my x accuracy into the “W SM.”
This, is not where it ends
though. This was just the beginning
really. Then I had to go around getting specific Pokemon. The first Pokemon had to be a Seel with
exactly 233 HP—
So I had to go back to the
Seafoam Islands, find a seel, catch the seel, and rare candy it till it got 233
HP. This was more annoying than it seems
because you have to feed rare candies at one at a time and every single time
the damn thing kept trying to evolve. Anyway ONCE THAT WAS DONE, I got my first
Pokemon in a free box.
Then I had to find as
follows: Parasect, Growlithe, Magikarp,
Psyduck, Flareon, Tentacool, FEMALE Nidoran, and then three pokemon of my
choice. Once that was done was where the
fun, and paranoia again.
So first I had to buy 43
Burn Heals and 53 Ice Heals. After that
I set up my items as:
Item to get to 255
Burn heal x 43
Ice heal x 53
Revive x 201
(IF YOU DO NOT SET IT UP THIS
WAY, EXACTLY THIS WAY, AND HAVE THE POKEMON BOX WITH THE POKEMON YOU GOT, YOUR
GAME WILL CRASH)
Which I needed: 89 Lemonade, 12 Repel, 211 Carbos, 88 x Accuracy, 115
Water Stones, TM01.
Once I utilized that glitch to get that, it changed my Trainer ID to be
After that, I needed a Mew with my NEW trainer ID. So I have to repeat
that first formula, but this time for
Item 3: Repel x21
Item 4: X Speed x14
Item 5: Ultra Ball x64
Item 6: TM05 x89
And successfully got my Mew.
Then I had to repeat the first formula again, so I could make my Mew
shiny. So I had to have:
X Accuracy x134
Fresh Water x201
AND THEN, make sure I had Mew in the front of my Party, use W SM, toss one X Accuracy, then use WS M again.
ALL THE WHILE, FOR EACH OF THESE
CODES IM DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRuPLE CHECKING EVERYTHING SO I’M POSITIVE
IM DOING IT RIGHT.
ANYWAY, EVERYTHING WENT SPLENDID, AS YOU CAN SEE
Gen 1 was wild, kids.
