The Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert tour is coming to Philadelphia on September 19th. We have two sets of concert double-passes to give away to lucky Bulbanews readers!
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are coming this November! Check BNN and Bulbanews for up-to-date Pokémon news and discuss it on the forums or in our IRC channel.

User:Gengarzilla/Ash's team history

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search
Lucky Ash didn't get shot, or else we'd have a scene way too intense for youngsters... This page contains material that may not be suitable for young readers.
Viewer discretion is advised.


Hello and welcome to my newest project. I got this idea from Prongs, who got the idea from TTEchidna, so I thought I should carry on the tradition. Hopefully I can inspire another Bulbapedian to carry on the line with this. In this I count Raticate, Haunter, Beedrill, and Larvitar as "officially caught" but not Seaking.

CAUTION! Slower computers may lag here!

Here goes then.

This is what the team looks like now and I am ready to take you all on a trip down memory lane.

Kanto

EP001

Ash chooses Pikachu (well, less chooses and more sleeps in and has no choice). Oak gives him a Pokédex and some balls (Get your minds out of that gutter).

EP004

Ash has his first offical battle against some half mad Bug Catcher. Bees then steal his newest body part but somehow he gets it back. It then protects him and evolves into a Butterfree. While this is good, it stops me from making any dick jokes about it. Ah well.

Ash now has six Pokémon at this point but his rival Gary has at least a million because he's Gary Motherfucking Oak. So Ash decides to catch another one, a Krabby. The ball disappears after capture and he wonders where the fuck it went. Pay attention next time idiot! How someone like him is already going for his third badge is beyond me...

Well, this is what's next. Ash wants to go to the Sinnoh region now, so he leaves everyone but Pikachu at Oak's. I guess this wasn't just a "Johto thing". A certain cheeky monkey isn't going to take this though.....

Yes, the battle actually took three fucking episodes... It's over with now and for the semi-finals, Ash is up against some hacker with his so called unbeatable Darkrai.

Despite Ash's best efforts (Sceptile beat that Darkrai!) he ends up losing... I guess a good thing is that Gliscor's safe at the lab now.

Unova

BW001

Ash begins his Unova journey by saving Pikachu from a mysterious new TR and promply embarrasses himself in a battle (Come on, what the fuck were you doing losing to that kid). An Oshawott also begins following him.

I called this one! Ash stays true to his pattern by catching a Pidove. New TR then take Pikachu again but the same Oshawott from before stops them.

At this point, we know that Ash will be regularly rotating members of his Unova team in and out. That could be confusing...

In other news, Pidove becomes his first Unova Pokémon to evolve, becoming Tranquill.

Tepig finally reunites with his old trainer and discovers how much of a sadistic and uncaring asshole he is. Thanks to Snivy's help though, he was able to get over this and evolve. Pignite then got to blast that soulless creep's face with a Flamethrower. It made Charmander feel better and by god it made Pignite feel better too.

We're breaking trends already, Pikachu arrives unharmed in Kalos. No electric overload, no immediate TR kidnap, and no getting his ass kicked by a new trainer after being nerfed by Zekrom.

There was an attempt though, which Kermit the Frog helped foil.

Oh, so it's called Froakie and it joined Ash? Here's hoping that this one is less annoying than Oshawott.

Froakie proves its worth by helping Ash catch his usual little bird.

Then Fletchling evolves, which is good since his other Fire types were either Torkoal, owned by an asshole, or hunted by an asshole.

What could be next?

He still needs a Grass type, and maybe Talonflame could come along at some point. I don't see Greninja being likely because Ash's Water type starters never evolve.
