    Have you guys ever wondered how nobody ever gets hurt during these battles?Like sometimes moves will create powerful explosions and the trainer and the audience are fine.How do the moves not harm them?

    Idk in regular battles, but in dynamax battles of the anime there is a barrier(possibly made with Dynamax energy) protecting the audience

    Like others said it's cartoon. Aside for some people getting caught into slapsticks, mainly Ash, the show target audience wouldn't allow them to see them physically and emotionally injured, especially not like Dragon Ball Z with the way Majin Vegeta did.

    Apparently, some stadiums have energy shields. As for the ones that don't...I have no earthly idea.

    Other than "anime physics", I've assumed that most attacks lose power the further away from the battlefield that they stray. I do remember one instance where it looked like an attack [I believe it might have been Stone Edge at the Shinou League] looked like it hit the audience, though.

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    Stadiums are created that way to limit Pokemon's attack range and blast radius where no one in audience can get hurt because attacks hit the ground/battlefield and walls ,unless Pokemon is intentionaly aiming at audience.

    There's never been any logic to it. You can't be in a room with a monster spitting lava everywhere or whipping up a tornado and still be okay.

    It never bothered me.

    Dynamax could a problem

    Last week's episode pulled an acceptable explanation with the whole forcefield thing

    What, how else am I supposed to interpret the hazy red tint over the screaming audience at that point?

    Cyclone ^ where it all began

    It would be a cool detail if there was like a psychic netting spun by Mr Mimes or Kirlias or something that absorbs collateral attack blasts to proetect the audience. Haha, I was wondering the same question everytime I see the Sword & Shield characters Gigantamaxing their Pokemon and then standing in the middle of their battle XD

    No idea why, but I was under the impression it was the Aegislash the referee was flying on who protected the audience.

    Really. Ash hasn't aged a minute but that's the thing that deserves confusion?

    Anyways. Cartoon physics. Convenience. Break that apart and this isn't extremely child-friendly anymore.

    If anything they should show more characters getting hurt by things other than Pokemon attacks. Like having Ash slip on an icy sidewalk and breaking his leg.

    And by doing that the Pokemon anime becoming into the Pokémon Special Manga ? Lol i actually would be okay with that as we DO see that attack could hurt Eureka (Bonnie) in early xy arc so i Wouldn't mind that aspect play in the Pokemon anime @Leonhart
