View Full Version : the Pokemon cartoon is actually all a dream

Ash was put in a coma after Pikachu used Thunderbolt on the Spearow

As his mind became more and more detached from the world, his "world" became more and more surreal, hence why there are no real animals (yet, they are known to exist in the Pokemon world)

Team Rocket started off as a threat, but became more of a comic relief after he was put on painkillers in the hospital

Since Ash has daddy issues, he placed his father (Giovanni) at the head of an evil organization

Being in a coma, he'll never be with a girl, which is why he and Misty have never hooked up. Similarly, Brock is constantly rejected because, being an extension of Ash's repressed hormones, which will never be fulfilled

Jessie represents his vanity, James represents his suppressed homosexuality, Meowth represents the possibility of rehabilitation since he doesn't really want to be evil. He can also talk, an attempt at humanizing him by Ash

Gary Oak and Richie, who have become successful Pokemon trainers (and in Gary's case, settled down), are methods of keeping Ash in check with reality so that he isn't the only person to become a great trainer

Tracey represents Ash's pre-Pokemon desire of becoming an artist

Ash's Pokemon also represent different aspects of his personality. Bulbasaur - stubbornness, Charizard - sexuality (starts small and innocent, becomes large and uncontrollable), Squirtle - leadership, Pidgeotto - recklessness (this applies to his other bird Pokemon as well), Butterfree - loneliness, Pikachu - humanity (which is why Team Rocket, his dark side, is after it, and also why he can't evolve it)

If the Elite Four, the most major roadblock on his "journey," are defeated and Ash becomes a Pokemon master, he'll presumably break out of the coma

there's a lot more, but yeah

the fact that an adult actually cared enough about POKEMON to come up with this miserable piece of writing makes me a sad sunny =(

Never saw the appeal of Pokemon as an actual form of entertainment, or as an internet lol. What the fuck ?

What kind of fucked up childhood did you have where you didn't at least play the gameboy game?

I did play the game, yes. Then I turned 12.

I understand why you don't find it to be lolworthy. Whatever.

Still, how's pokemon any different from any other great classic video game meant for children? It's was and still is a great game. You suck =(

Damn! I've still yet to beat Pearl.

I actually am disappointed in the Wi-Fi and I think the only two games that deserve attention are Red & Blue and Gold & Silver.

I've been playing Diamond religiously for about the last year or so. Just finished replaying. Well, almost. Still have the Elite Four left.

lol. the american speech is actually higher than the german one. in addition to that, the pokemon sound more cute whereas the german ones sound stupid. I don't like german syncros... damn I need more beer.

Are you judging the voices by the youtube videos? That's just some person dubbing them over (though, it's still kind of close).
