    What never made sense to me is Ash making Pikachu learn Iron Tail. For someone who "loves" his Pokemon too much I would advise Ash to have agility to keep distance and the rest of Pikachu's moves to be electric to play it safe. I never watched Pokemon past Kanto Region but I still flinch when I see Pikachu hurt

    The reason I believe no one takes the orange island win into consideration is because that it was a single match rather than a whole tournament like at the end of every region. Also please note that I have not seen sun and moon tournament and do not know how he wins it.

    If all the math is right Pikachu is honestly a lot weaker in terms of levels than what I thought he was, after so many battles I thought he would probably be LV:80 by the time Ash entered the Unova region.

    I have several theories on the Pokemon world, including that is is partially unstuck in reality. It's history is being rewritten backwards from one particular event from before Ash's birth. As the effect goes back into time, it keeps rewriting Ash's (and everybody else's) life. But imperfectly. More so for some than others. This is why Ash, despite having participated in many many battles, forgets the basics every couple years and has to relearn how to do captures and battles. And why Pikachu keeps losing all of his gained power and experience. These two keep resetting hard with every new wave of rewritten history.

    11:50 They would only grow if they actually won battles. Team Rocket up to this point loses almost every battle they enter, and when they DO succeed they tend to use their smokescreen and wrap and such to make stealing pokemon or other stuff easier, which the pokemon wouldn't get exp for. Not to mention the number of times they rely on vehicles or devices to do the job.

    His Pikachu becomes so strong that it surpasses Level 100 and by the end of the season/region it is Level 255. When a Pokemon becomes Level 256 (In the Gen 1 and 2 games, at least), it reverts to Level 0.

    Pikachu's weakness and strength could be based also on his nature as I have assumed he has the Hasty( lower defense , higher speed ) or Naive ( lower special defense , higher speed ), which would probably make it more believeable or logical

      As long as pikachu doesnt get hit, levels and element advantage wont matter too much if pikachu's stats support a high speed and lower defense ( basically a glass cannon of sorts ) .

    In the episode “enter pikachu”. It is revealed that ashes pikachu was born as a pichu. Pichu evolves through a friendship rating. So the assumption that ash met pikachu at a low level is silly. Pikachu could have been a much higher level before he had evolved from pichu.... you said it took pikachu roughly 20 episodes to begin to help ash on his dreams, well maybe it took pikachu that long to recover emotionally from detachment from his prior trainer who raised his friendship level enough to evolve from a pichu to a pikachu... Please make an updated video

    I like most of your stuff but this one felt like a waste of time. Pikachu lost to Snivy because its insanely bad writing. That's it. This anime is probably the worst written one I have ever seen and the writers don't even try to cover it up. They break their own rules so much I don't know why they even continue to try to have an actual plot.

    Alright, I'm pausing at 11:36 because Matpat just talked about Whitney's Miltank, and I just have to say the game gives you plenty of options by the third gym to deal with Miltank's Rollout. It only gets powerful if it can hit consecutively, and by that point you'll have access to: Cyndiquil's Smokescreen or Pidgey/Pidgeotto's Sand Attack for lower accuracy, Zubat/Golbat's Confuse Ray for confusion, Mareep's Thunder Wave for paralysis, to name a few. Despite most of these Pokémon being weak to rock type moves, I've never found it very difficult to set up against Miltank and prevent it from ever getting its Rollout damage very high
