It says that Grovyle used a powerful pound after activating Overgrow, which only affects grass moves, is this an error, or is it just a regular strong attack? Gliscorguy54 16:08, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
All Pikachu have the ability Static, same with all Grovyle and Overgrow. Why would this change in the anime? PhaseShifter 03:22, January 21, 2010. (UTC)
I still think it's an error that the truant ability isn't active.
Although it is true that the games and the anime are two totally different things I can prove that abilities are active in the anime. For example, have you noticed how often opponents got paralyzed because of Ash's Pikachu's static? How about the episode focused on Linoone where it used pickpup? There is also an episode where Rhydon got the hit of Ash's Pikachu. I could go on, and on. There are countless episodes that show that abilities are indeed active in the anime.
While I do agree that Pokémon battles in the anime don't work the same way as they do in the game, I also know for a fact that abilities do work in the anime. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 19:15, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
