    I know it wasn't a mechanic in the earlier games but if you take into consideration that exp raises at the pokemon camp like in sword and shield, they would definitely be much higher. Plus Ash would train his pokemon without fighting sometimes.

    Awesome hard work! But to be honest, I don't think it's okay to ignore the levels of Pokémon Pikachu beats on the basis of hard math. You don't know that we see all the battles Pikachu has done on screen. Similar to the audience never seeing them taking dumps, for all you know Ash grinds wild Pokémon a ton off screen. So I'd trust the data of what level Pokémon Pikachu beats more.

    They mention that "Pikachu uses a move that can only be gained through breeding" and "Ash seems to be pikachus original trainer" but doesn't ash get Pikachu from Oak? Does Oak ever say where they got Pikachu from?

    Love the episode but immediately noticing an issue. The average level of Pokémon encountered in the route doesn’t take in to account encounter rates. The average number of the Pokémon you encounter would drastically changed based on the amount each Pokémon shows up and what levels they typically do. It’s just flawed due to lack of understanding of the games

    In the anime I think pikachu gets experience points regardless of whether he knocks the opponent out or not... so that would basically double pikachu's power level... making pika around level 60 when he defeated the orange island champions Dragonite... but yeah it seems like pikachu gets nerfed atleast when initially entering new regions... but about midway through a region pikachu seems to get his power back lol

  • Tim Luo

    The problem with this set up is that it won't work. Use Butterfree for example, there just aren't enough battles for Caterpie to evolve into Butterfree. I doubt this equation would work with any of the pokemons. (edit: Good example is the Charizard's level, or how Pikachu beats Dragonite. The excuse that Ash is a good trainer wouldn't make any sense since we are seeing his command in real time.)

    Ash resets his Pikachu's level for every region and I think with this method the Maximum level he can reach per season is level 55-60 like in the game if you use one pokemon everytime unless you really try hard where you can reach higher levels

    Pikachu is special because of his enhancements so despite his low level his base special attack stat might be like 300. At least that’s how I explain the logic behind the league fights.

    Arhon Valran12 dagar sedan

    I believe you did 2 minor mistake in your calculation but I'm not a pokemon expert so I can mistake here. First, if I remember correctly in pokemon games you gain expert points for winning battle not defeating pokemon. It's important in battles with trainers like that one with dragonite, because after this battle pikachu didn't just gain points for dragonite but also for others pokemons defeated in it. Of course if Ash retreated some of his pokemons in this battle exp was shared for all of them (but I believe it wasn't). Second, as I sayed in games exp was received after battle but because you are trying to calculate pikachu's lvl from anime you should think about how exp was received in there. Because there is a lot of moments when pokemons evolv in the middle of battle or even learn new moves I believe in this version of universe pokemons gain exp not for winning but for each action they did and this change your calculation entirly.

    I just want to say, level is a game mechanic. In the anime pokemon world, level is unnecessary. Pokemon can learn moves or evolve depend on age. Therefore pokemon battle in the anime world solely depend on the skills of the trainers and their pokemon partners instead of stats which makes level obsolete. ps: i'm not being serious :)

    I wonder if in the show every Pokémon has a level cap for what stage they are in… like a Pokémon evolves at lvl 15 but chooses not to evolve and is stuck at that level…. But a lower level Pokémon could beat a Pokémon of a higher level, I’ve done that in the games one time I had a lvl 12 lillypup and beat a much stronger Pokémon with shear luck and lots of potions
