Game Theory: You're WRONG About Ash's Pikachu! (Pokemon)

SUBSCRIBE to Never Miss A Game Theory! ►

Today is the day, Theorists! The day that I, once and for all, prove that Ash's Pikachu is WEAK! That's right! There is no Level 100 here. Throughout the anime, Pikachu has proved to not be as strong of a contender as we were led to believe. Let's get into the evidence!

    I by all means am not saying this was wrong at the *time,though from google at the end of pikachu's journey,he is around level *200 and apparently,there aren't any levels in the anime,although this was a great,eye catching video,the level could be slightly off,but snivy STILL SHOULD BE TOAST i can tell ya that.

    I think one thing is missed here: Snivy can't actually learn leaf tornado until level 16, meaning that Snivy here is at least level 16 during the fight. This might be able to change up the results a bit maybe?

    Theory: Pikachu may not be strong, but ash’s tactics makes him be. like in raichu vs pikachu ash tells pikachu to stand on his iron tail and on pokemon sun and moon he says use quick attack then iron tail to attack more stronger, so thats why we think pikachu is so powerful. Hes not, the tactics ash uses are fooling us thats why we think pikachu is so much powerful.

    Pokemon theory: The Ultra Space Wilds and Ultra Ruin are on the same planet: Well, both of them have reversed music with strange sounds, both are inhabited with Pokemon found in on PokeEarth. Since this Pokemon world is in the future, the people of this parallel PokeEarth might have found a piece of uninhabited land. Then, just incase people would want legendaries and didn't want to endanger the planet, they decided to clone legendaries to go in the Ultra Space Wilds along with normal pokemon. Now people can catch legendaries without the fuss of: "where is Palkia? Space is being destroyed" or "We need Necrozma to bring light to Ultra Megalopolis but a parallel 10 year old caught him!" and "Tapu Koko! The island is being terrorised by a guzzlord! Oh wait, he's with an 11 year old who came from a parallel universe". But how did they create the guzzlords and why is the Ultra Space Wilds not polluted yet. Well, I think that people experimented with Pokemon and eventually created the first guzzlord. He was to big so they let him loose. And then more guzzlords got created and they destroyed Alola. And the reason why they aren't terrorising other places is due to the fact that they are to big to swim.

    The biggest, if not the only, piece of evidence people have for Ash's Pikachu resetting is the fight with Snivy. Personally, I don't think Pikachu got reset because all we got is this piece of evidence. Others in the comments also mentioned maybe Pikachu wasn't on full health during the fight and I have to heavily agree that it could be a possibility. I mean c'mon, Ash is a bit dumb. Also, I don't think the creators and directors of the show intended that, if they did there would be more things pointing to that claim. In reality, the fight was probably just a plot device to get the story moving along
