The only useless capture would have been a coward mon like Sobble that would have been useless in fights. Thank god Ash got the duck and not the crybaby lizard.Oh I never hated Farfetch'd for not appearing, it not appearing just proved what a useless capture it was for me lol. I never liked the bird and never will. It will always be second fiddle behind Lucario and his capture was pointless. And that's regardless of Sobble. Even if Ash caught both of them it would still be a pointless capture due to his redundant typing and that regardless of what the bird does, Lucario is always going to be Ash's first choice as a fighting type.
