I like how you passed over the biggest story detail that can be read into on a philosophical level and that’s the fact that you can fight red after getting the kanto badges

You missed 2 games, Colosseum and Colosseum 2. I'd like to see your takes on those. I feel that they are different enough from the handheld games that they warrant their own video. Thoughts?

Similar to the whole "Mario games are just Theatre plays" theory, what if the pokemon games are, in-universe, also some form of teambuilding game, to basically mass-produce battle-ready trainers. The badges would kinda be like Boyscout badges IRL, whereby you participate in simulations and situations st up to teach you how to do important survival things. This would explain why the adults seem incompetent, and kids are able to outdo the police; They're supposed to. and maybe every trainer gets a similar experience, kinda like an obstacle course. Or maybe I'm looking a little too hard into this.

Well Alder really isn't the Champion, N is and you defeat N so that makes you the Champion, I know why people hate Alder theme, because it doesn't fit a champion, instead it fits his character, and to be honest, Alder just cared about caring for his Pokemon, and this theme does fit hih personally well

A few things In the manga falkner is a police officer Roxane was the strongest trainer in the school and in the anime is a teacher In the anime brawley is a professional surfer Team flares orig[by the way if you want an achievement kgpost.info/will/video/xmbYqnR8qXVknMk ]ins are explored in the anime as a group who started in a famine by handing out provisions and then people started to get greedy Malva saying “hero” isn’t an insult but a hint that that she’s connected to team flare and follows there beliefs, while others call you a hero you stopped her beliefs from coming true to her you would be a villain this is also supported by the fact she says big,bad team flare name one time big,bad ____ was used seriously. In omega ruby, alpha sapphire it’s implied AZs story continues as a person in sootopolis says a tall man planted the tree in the city and looking at the tree you can see AZ’s floettes flower By the way the reward above was a rickroll Guzma says that nihilego( the big jellyfish) was capable of possession The anime says that if lusamine isn’t freed from the motherbeast nihilego then she will die due to her life force slowly being drained by nihilego

Fun fact, even though the video is old: There is kind of an alternative ending in the Pokemon Ranger series. At one point, you have to safe a boat and if you fail putting the plug back in (yes...yes, an actual plug), the boat actually sinks, pretty much alluding to killing everyone on board.

Team Rocket are my fav villians. its a pokemon Mafia and they are fairly good at their job when Red isnt around. the manga shows how brutal stuff is, like a scyther cutting a arbok in half. red is powerful and then becomes a boss in the next game. most trainers in the world arnt nearly as strong as he is so team rocket can easily beat them. Team Yell are my second favs just cause they arnt bad, they just wanna support their towns main trainer. i also like the sun and moon villian team (not the scientists) because they arnt actualy evil or trying to destroy the world, just wanna be gangsters.

30 minutes in and all I'm hearing is a snarky dismissal of children's games through nitpicks and plotholes. Do you understand what a children's game is? Your analysis is useless if you can't understand the games on their own terms. This whole video is just an adult squinting at a children's story and nasally deriding it for being a children's story.
