    Hey, guys. I'm just wanting to know why you think Ash had never given any of his Pokémon their nicknames?

    Out-of-universe, the answer is brand building. The Pokémon Company wants you to know the character as Pikachu, not as Sparky, because Pikachu is the "brand name." They want you to see the Pokémon elsewhere and say, "Hey, that's a Pikachu!" not "Hey, that's Sparky!" That kind of recognition helps to increase the value of the brand. Therefore, main characters practically never (with Snowy being the first real exception) nickname their Pokémon to help with brand recognition.

    In-universe, calling your Pokémon by the species name is clearly normal in the world of Pokémon, and nicknaming is the exception. It's not that Ash actively doesn't want to nickname his Pokémon, it's more that he just doesn't see a reason to, as it's completely natural for him to call them by their species name.

    When Pokèmon Worlds Collide (it’d be nice if you used Bulbapedia for summaries/major events instead of asking for an episode so often)

    Battling a Thaw in Relations! DP188.


    That one is a tie. He only "defeats" Paul at the League.

    Wrong thread for this. Go to Anime Polls and make a thread about it there. That said, it's the Volcanion one.

    What's the first Japanese episode of pokemon XY to use dori dori as the end credits?

    I think it might be XY047, but I'm not sure because Bulbapedia isn't working for me.

    Also, the song is called "DreamDream".

    heh, you mentioning os82 reminds me of one time I watched it on youtube in spanish, but apparently there was some editing issue because it switched language when brock proposed going on blimp, it said something along the lines of "si vamos en dirigible if we go on a blimp we could get to the orange islands in less than un día"
