Ash, or Ass, as I affectionately call him, his team is considered crappy by the lot of you. I ask you, then, what would your best "Ash-like" team be? By "Ass-like", I mean the following:

1. Pikachu must be on your team, since Pikachu is always with Ash.
2. At least two starters, preferably three must be on your team, since Ash has a tendency to do so. The only times that Ash has had less than three starters on his team was before Ash got Charmander and when Ash pulled Bulbasaur for Kingler.
3. No "era" overlapping. This means that all the members of this team Ash must all have at the same time. This means, for example, Primeape, and Heracross can't be together.
4. This team must have at least five members, and, as per GB rules, each must have four moves, but, as per anime, they must have been performed at least once in the anime. That is, Snorlax can't have body slam since Snorlax did not do a body slam.

After that, what do you think is the CRAPPIEST team that can beat Ash's team with a very high degree of regularity?

Yup, Ash is certainly worthy of being called Ass...

Bonus question: how about a "Misty-like" team, a "Brock-like" team, a "Tracey-like" team, or even a "Jessie, James, and Meowth-like" team?

I'm pretty sure Ash's Snorlax has performed BodySlam...

Sama, that's a helluva good Ash-team. *sticks glop the muk back on her team* As for a Misty team...
Starmie/Staryu/Poliwhirl/does she have any damn thing else/Psyduck/ditto above statement.
Vulpix/Golbat/Onix/Geodude(POS)/ditto two statements for Misty.
Gary would, of course, use Arcanine, so...
Arcanine/Rhydon/Pidgeot/Nidoking/Nidoqueen/Blastoise. Which isn't such a bad team. And, I use Nidoking/Nidoqueen in serious battles. And kick ass!

My... been a while, ne?

Togepi: the scariest Pkmn of all

Well, if you believe the dub, then James had some phantom Weepinbell that we never saw. If you don't believe the dub, then James stole that Victreebel fair and square. ^_^

St. Anne episode, Ash traded for a Raticate and traded it back for Butterfree.

Blood tastes good.

It's in the American version as well when, during the first Butch/Cassidy episode, James mentions that he had a Weepinbell and he thought it evolved. So in the American version James DID steal the Victreebel.

Also, on Ash's team that has not successfully kicked Team Rocket to the stratosphere are Raticate (0-for-1), Kingler (0-for-0), and Muk (0-for-1).

The first time TR was kicked by anyone else on Ass's team:
Pikachu: Viridian City Pokémon Centre
Butterfree: Ash catches both Caterpie and Pidgeotto in Viridian Forest
Pidgeot: The episode when Bulbasaur joins Ash's team
Squirtle: The Squirtle Squad
Primeape: Just after Ash caught it
Snorlax: In the episode where Pikachu and Meowth were handcuffed together
Heracross: Just before Ash caught it
Cyandaquil: Just as Ash catches it
Totodile: Just as Ash won the battle for the Lure Ball that contained him
Noctowl: Just before Ash caught it

I can't remember for Bulbasaur, Lapras, Chikorita, or Charizard.

PS. Why is that when Seaking used Horn Drill on Arbok (which hit) in the ballet episode, Arbok is not KOed?

The reason why seaking's horn drill did not K.O. arbok is the same reason why onix gets shocked down by pikachu.

Does anyone know every single move that ALL of Ash/Ass's pokemon have used? That could help out some people in making those movesets.
Anyway, how many of the powders (poison, sleep, stun spore) did Butterfree use? Not to mention that I've only seen it use 1 attack at all, and that was Tackle!!I'm not counting Whirlwind as an attack, since it doesn't do any damage in GB. I'm just using the worst poke that Ash ever had. Primeape's not all that good either, at least not with the moves that he's used. After all, Primeape was only around for how many episodes? I only saw him in 1.
Anyway, I'm outta here.

<EDIT> My bad. I just saw a 2nd episode that Primeape was in. The one where he was caught, and the one in the Fighting Gym competition battle whatever-ya-wanna-call-it. Anyway, now I'm really outta here.
Life through the eyes of a workaholic: I love to write reports. What's a "fraternity"? What do you mean they have "fun"? What is this word "fun"? I write reports, now that's "fun".

Life through the eyes of a slacker: What's this piece of paper doing on my door? What does "eviction" mean? Oh well, at least I don't have to clean my apartment out after parties anymore.

Oh forget Ash Ketchum!
All he does is rape Pikachu, Chikorita, and Misty!!!

Jessie also had a Shellder for a time. Then That doctor dude stole it to make his Slowpoke evolve.

Dumbasses stealing the thief's pokes!

Also, TR should have caught that pink Nidoking on that Pink Island episode! That would have been good!

Also, a Giovanni team would include Tauros(M2 caught lots for TR), Kingler, and some others I forget, but he had a good team.

Heh, just noticed something. The episode when Ash goes to Fushia Gym, his Bulbasaur uses whirlwind O_O.

The episode Ash catches Snorlax, unsure of title. It's on Grapefruit island. That episode is one of, if not, my favorite episode(s). Anyway, before Ash catches Snorlax he and his friends try to have their Pokémon stop Snorlax. Snorlax, before being caught, fights back with Headbutt on Misty's Staryu and I know he Body Slams something, maybe it was Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur gets flattened somehow either way. I know it was headbutt and body slam cause after each of those attacks Tracey would comment like, "That's Snorlax's Headbutt attack."


P.S. Brock should have a Tauros. Watch the Safari Zone episode. He and Ash both throw a Safari Ball, both of them succesfully capture one, and Ash and Brock each pick up a safari ball.

P.P.S. What is the deal with James so called Weepingbel? Did Japan ever give a clue to how it got it, where it came from, etc..? Where do ya'll know he stole it? Thanks


Posted by MK (Member # 1445) on 07-23-2001, 02:38 AM:
And Ash did somewhat have a Haunter to fight Sabrina with, but, Haunter just kinda tagged along; Ash didn't capture him.

*MK kicks the topic back to the top*

[ I'd really like to know the answers to my two questions ]

Posted by kelv (Member # 843) on 07-31-2001, 06:55 PM:
I forgot about that Shellder and the fact that Snorlax flattened both Bulbasaur and Squirtle when Ash was trying to stop him!

I feel so much like a newbie... it isn't funny.
