Awww he evolved to protect him.
@Freeman, except he didn't. Growlithe evolves with a fire stone, they can't evolve to protect. They just have to be exposed to the stone
@18bluecat, shhhh. Let him dream
They have referenced pokemon being used in war a few times. They would make interesting stories but probably won't happen because they won't be aimed at the same age group without ruining it
@Dephenistrator, I feel like if you got the full metal writers and artists onto it, a pokemon war series would be something to behold.
@ThePandaPool , that would cool. The plot would have to be at least mildly dark. If they made it like fighting team rocket it in the show it would be a bust
@Dephenistrator, yea. It would need to be like WWI style with trenches and artillery. Also LOTS of fire types.
@Dephenistrator, it would be pretty brutal, you’d have ground types makes spike pitfalls or burying people, trenches full of soldiers being burned alive, people being sliced in half by flying types.
@ThePandaPool , i just imagined lapras and blastoises swimming up through machine gun fire at Normandy while the soldiers unload and throw pokeballs for fire types like charizard. I know that's the wrong world war but my imagination frequently goes without me
@Richard Cypher, imagine manning a turret in a bunker with a couple guys and a scyther cuts the door down and rushes in. The camera would pan up as they scream and a couple blood splatters hit the ceiling
@Dephenistrator, that's because it's one of the most used battles in movies and games. With Wii, you could gave ground types matching alongside tanks and water types with subs too.
@ThePandaPool , lol, subs won't be as scary with garyados patrols
@Dephenistrator, scyther is one of the scariest Pokémon when you really think about it, it’d be a Tarantino movie
@Richard Cypher, yeah, if ten of those flew out of cover and jumped even a sizable force they would be fúcked. And if pokemon didn't magically survive the battles they did scyther would end most fights dicing up it's opponents like Edward scissorhands did garden statues
@Dephenistrator, hyper beam vs torpedo would be interesting.
@ThePandaPool , @Dephenistrator I've never read the manga but I was curious and looked into it. Complete 180 from the show and games. It's dark. Pokemon die constantly, adults are at war which is why ash is 10 and follows him. They just wanted to market it to kids
@Juggernaut315, so it's already a thing?
@ThePandaPool , shockingly I think so. I don't think they focus as much on the war going on but still do
@Juggernaut315, well now I'm curious
@ThePandaPool , I don't know if the war is a thing but an Arbok gets sliced in two by a Charmeleon very quickly. And they dedicate a whole page to showing it's dead body. I liked the manga a lot but only got through the first one. Electric Tale of Pikachu's protagonist bothered me so much. Freaking Yellow
I wonder if he served with Lt. Surge.
@AIbert Finestein, blitzkrieg division
Ever since i was a kid i really wanted an Arcanine in real life
@Lord Stark, this just makes me want a real one even more
@Lord Stark, yeah, they are the awesome dog pets of the pokemon world!
Imagine a separate pokemon series where pokemon become real, as in they appear in OUR world. The series would be about how various country's political and social orders change and are affected by superpowered murder beasts of adorableness.
@Proactive Citizenry , and Taiwan used it's mythically captured zapdos to level Beijing in response to being blockaded by heavy rock types like onyx and golems. In other news, no sign yet of mewtwo since the devastation last year.
OMG my chubby obese heart, no joke i shed a tear at this, really wholesome
Im not crying, you're crying
Brothers in arms
So in Pokemon war are there rules against humans shooting Pokemon? Is it like the Pokemon battle each other and the humans fight each other or is it just no holds bars kill everything? Oh god..
@Omnum, I’m pretty sure War is always just no bars kill everything unless it’s surrendering. We’ve used animals in actual warfare before and trust me the animals are just as dangerous as the men with guns
Meanwhile in the Vietnam region
