Caught, obliterated, same thing. It's probably not going to see the light of day again either way.

See y'all soon.

Obliterated I love the look on DT and Rat's Faces when the pokeball poofs classic.

I wonder what would happen if she ran into Bill... what would he say about all the space she's taking up?

And that Oddish continues to have ALL THE MOVES.

She's been training for four years, yet never even evolved a Pidgey? Wow.

@AFeralFurry: maybe this is just the pokemon she uses for weaker ones. I mean its hard to catch pokemon if you are using a lv100 dragonite that obliterates all of these tiny weak pokemon when it sneezes. I bet in her box she has a prime team of ubers.

@AFeralFurry: well if she tries to catch every pokemon she comes across, she's not gonna get any experience. Her pokemon probably all stay the same level she caught them in her attempt to catch them all

I suppose it's true she may not be using her main team or she might not be getting them the experience she needs.

I kind of want to see what four years of Pokemon hoarding does to your PC box, though.

I can only imagine the look on her face when she realizes boxes have limits...

So she's been a Trainer for four years, huh? How old is she? Where did she start? I personally believe she's from Viridian City and that she started catching Pokémon in the Viridian Forest. She caught every Pokémon she encountered there and looked for a Pikachu for FOUR FRICKIN' YEARS and only after the Forest was destroyed and every wild Pokémon there died, she felt like she could finally move on. And yet she never caught a Pikachu.

Bitch be crazy.

Looks like Atty's gonna get a little lesson in the finer points of the PC storage system. Hasn't had to use it yet, has he?

The Pokéball's transfer to the storage system seems like it startled Atticus.
I wish that happened in the anime, but nobody in the anime ever carries 6 Pokémon while trying to capture another. It's just not fair. Dx

I NEED CONFIRMATION.

@Doutonbori Robo: Alright. Ash caught a Krabby in the episode Mystery at the Lighthouse, and it got teleported away, just like the games.

Unlike the games, it got sent to Oak instead of Bill, which is weird.

Bulbapedia is handy.

Edit: I just now realized that sounds mildly more confrontational than intended. Sorry. ^_^'

@AFeralFurry: Oh sweet. I love confirmation. That damned Krabby though.

Ash never did use the storage system directly through Bill's stuff, though. He always kept his Pokémon at Oak's lab. So I guess that makes sense.

It didn't come off as confrontational at all. Thanks for the info. :3

@Doutonbori Robo: I'd like to also mention that in the best wishes series (black and white over here in europe) when ash caught a 7th pokemon (a sewaddle) the pokeball simply shrunk and locked rather than vanishing. I actually think this makes more sense, and ash needed to deposit another pokemon before he could let out his new one.

oddish training with magikarp and he should probably evolve magikarp is what im hoping for to happen.

@SaviourInDistress:

No, that's all wrong, she said the reason already. You gotta catch every single one. (and in the earlier pages, she said she was 'under level'.)

Thus you can infer that she doesn't train, rather just catch pokemon, which is terrible cuz you don't get exp for catching, if I remember right.

Four years? Well I guess that answers my question about her age. She's 14 just like Atticus.

But... really? Four years and still no badge?

@Milanopiano: You have to take into account though that in the games there are a LOT of NPCs who mention how long they've been doing things with Pokémon, which is usually over four years of work, not necessarily including doing the Pokémon League Challenge.

George's thing is obviously all about catching Pokémon, so she doesn't appear to be all that involved with training her Pokémon to that extent.

Also, I really doubt she would have a Mewtwo. No normal clinically-insane person would own one Mewtwo, let alone two or more.

There's only really technically two or so Mewtwos in existence anyway (Dr. Fuji's and some other Scientist's Mewtwo because he couldn't pay attention to Copyright laws), so the likelihood of HER having one is slim to none.

I wouldn't doubt she'd want to try catching Mewtwo, though.

People say Well, they say a lot of things but anything worth doing is a lot of work...until they complete a pokedex and realise that some things are a lot of work for a digital congratulations certificate.

@AFeralFurry: That's not actually true. The only things you get for completing the National PokéDex usually end up being a diploma. In Black 2 & White 2, there are some added benefits to completing the National PokéDex, but in none of the games is a Mew awarded.

There IS however a way to get a Mew in Red and Blue version, by means of a glitch.
After exiting the underground passage going from Celadon City to Lavender Town, if you take a step forward a man should notice you. But if you press start as soon as you take the step you should be able to access the menu. At that point you have to Fly to Cerulean City. The exclamation point will appear over his head, but you'll end up flying away.
The game will think you're in a battle at that point, so you can't access the start menu anymore. You then have to walk over Nugget Bridge and continue until you get to the trainer with the Slowpoke. Walk in front of him, but make sure there's enough space between your character and him so that he has to walk toward you. If you walk directly in front of him the game will kind of freeze. After you battle him, you can then Fly to Lavender Town.
As you exit through the West exit to Lavender Town you'll encounter a level 7 Mew as soon as you step into the Route. Keep in mind you can't save at all in the middle of performing the glitch, otherwise it'll ruin it.

Shit, I just taught people how to get a Mew. Good for me.

@Doutonbori Robo:I thought I was probably wrong, but I haven't played Red and Green, only Red and Yellow from the first gen, so...

Oh, the infamous Mew glitch. I remember doing that, and Missingno, and about all the others.

I kind of wish a programmer could explain why that happens, though. Something to do with the data loading the Slowpoke trainer's team corresponding to where Mew's located in the game data, maybe?

Catch 'em all! I bet, if she does have some Pokémon who could evolve, if they were cute-looking, she probably presses b all the time. I think, if she wasn't so focused on catching every single pokemon, she would've went after Mew.

@Doutonbori Robo: and he used Squirtle's Pokeball while Squirtle was in it so he had two Pokémon in one ball then it teleported away to Oak who teleported it back to him after taking Krabby out of the ball so ash only needs the 6 balls oak gave him ep1 and he can capture fainted Pokémon

ROFLMAO! Never thought of catching pokemon in this fashion. I don't think I'll be able to think of it any other way now. XD

Didn't realize that "Gotta Catch 'em all!" really meant "Gotta wipe 'em all from the face of the earth." Sending children out there to cull a race of creature by using there own kind to do it adds a darker layer to the pokemon world.

...That's actually a mildly interesting question. Just what does your trainer do? Give the evolving Pokemon a quick scare?

Doesn't Mew count for the NPD? Also, if I remember correctly, you get some TMs and Key items for getting to a certain increment in the NPD, in the red/blue/yellow version.

@Blank: I don't recall getting anything for filling out the pokedex in Gen I (it's not a NPD, since there's only one region.) I got the diploma at 150, and the only thing I got for having 151 was the hidden pokedex entry for Mew.
