He was probably trained very well by the trainer.LuciRuki said:how come in the game bellsprout is useless (no offence to bellsprout lovers) but in this ep he was the best pokemon. makes no sense
still though, pikachu could kick bellsprouts lil behind, the thing about the roots absorbing the shock or something- very unrealistic.
Fushigidane vs. Strike was bulls***. I don't care if Fushigidane was owned by a previous trainer, was guardian of a hidden Pokemon sanctuary, and was used in a number of battles by Satoshi, I do not see it surviving so many direct hits from Strike as it did. Then, when Satoshi finds a way around Double Team, Strike goes down in just one Vine Whip? Right... usually, Satoshi finding his way around Double Team is just a minor inconvenience for his opponent in later episodes.
Tell me how can nontrained pokemon (Kraby, muk) Can beat trained-enough-to-make-it-to-the-league pokemon?
