Fainted Wild Pokemon?

    This is a question that has always bothered me, and I want to hear some of your opinions on the matter.

    After you faint a wild Pokemon, what would happen to it? I assume after a while it would probably heal naturally, but until then, it would just take up space on the route.

    Another thought is, what if you were EV training or Audino Hunting, and fainted a ton of Pokemon? What would happen to them all? Would they just lay on the route until they could heal? Post your opinions.

    They will wake up eventually but it is a game.. if a grass spot was taken for some time it would block your way.

    That's a good question!

    Whenever I'm EV Training or whatever, I always think that the Pokemon probably runs away from the Route after Fainting...

    They just pass out and block your way, and since 1 pkmn=1 square pixel, the protagonist is all like "Really, Ratatta?"

    And then they would come back after being healed, I suppose. That is a good theory.

    I guess they could do that, considering routes in the anime/'real world' would be kilometres long rather than a few pixels.

    We know that Audino knows Heal Pulse. Maybe Audino are rare because they are busy healing fallen pokemon.

    Maybe after they faint some Pokemon with a healing move comes and heals them.

    I always thought someone found them and gave them medicine.

    This could explain the rarity of Pokemon like Blissey and Audino, and why the grass is always shaking when Audinos are nearby - they are healing a Pokemon.

    Yeah I agree. The people in the Anime seem to do it. Of course everyone says the Anime is different.
  13. I really haven't thought about it. But I always imagined that they lay there for hours until they feel better.

    I think more that the after the pokémon are fainted, they just wake up somehow, and run away, to hide from that trainer. :p

    I think when a Pokemon faints,its like in the anime what happens to Pikachu.It's unable to battle but wakes up itself and maybe eats Oran/Sitrus berries or use a healing move if it has any.

    I remember reading--albeit years ago--in some official Nintendo publication that the Nurse Joys go off onto the various routes and heal them in their spare time.

    In which case they must be pretty miffed with all the aspiring trainers running about...
    The image of Route 14 covered with fainted Audino is pretty hilarious, and now I think about it,the trainer's looking to beat them up,too :/
    Trainer's weapon of choice=Bear fists?Cricket bat?

    When a Pokemon faints, it cries out its usualy cry, which actually means "Why?" before getting dragged into a dark void underneath.
    What happens after that is currently unknown, but some people speculate that they get dragged to hell. Which they for obvious reasons could not include in a childrens game.
    Therefore, instead of saying "*Wild Pokemon* Died and went straight to hell!" they only said "*Wild Pokemon* fainted"
    Or trainers pokemon, etc. Depending on the match

    When a trainers pokemon faints, it doesn't go straight to hell. Because when you heal it, for instance in a pokecenter, it will be alive and kicking again. Wild pokemon may actually die...

    Your trainer gets dragged down too, but is saved by his/her guardian angel, that carries them to a Pokemon Center, into safety
