LEARNS THE ENTIRE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, CAN ONLY RECALL FOUR ATTACKS

Seriously, if you can learn an entire language (that is made up of more words than just your damn name), then I don’t see why you can’t remember four different ways to physically assault your opponents!

    OBJECTION!

    This image is completely incorrect!

    If the Pokemon is able to know the entire English (or other, depending on dub) language…

    It must be in the anime; as such, it is able to know more than four moves!

    And if the Pokemon is only able to know four moves…

    It must exist in the video game canon, where not a word is spoken by the trainer!

    Thus…

    THIS CANNOT BE ONE SINGLE POKEMON!

    shouldn't this be Meowth? or did I miss Pikachu learning to speak….

  5. Vatonnage on April 8th, 2011 12:09 pm

    I guess another point goes to the Pokemon Special/Adventures manga, where they just use any attack they God damn well please.

    Just so people know…

    I put Pikachu because in the anime you only ever seem his use 4 attacks: Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, Quick Attack, or Volt Tackle. Those are the only 4 moves he ever uses. Which makes part of this joke work.

    The other part (about knowing a whole language) still works because every pokemon in the anime knows what any other human is talking about.

    So if Pikachu can understand every word Ash or anyone else says, how could he only remember 4 different attacks? Especially when there's a bunch of more moves he could use. Seriously, by now he'd be like lvl 70's or something, so he could've learned and used more attacks but they screw it up by making the pokemon age (Pikachu is his strongest pokemon, and Team Rocket is aware of his abilities) and the people stay the same, so they can have kids relate to the character with each new season.

    The obvious move that Pikachu could have learned by now but hasn't is Thunder… Thunder! THUNDER! THUNDERCATS! HOOOOOOOO!!!!!! (sorry, lol).

    I always figured League regulations prevents you from having more than four moves. In fact, Pokemon League regulations are the reason for most arbitrary rules in the Pokemon-verse.

    Seeing this submission in my Twitter feed: I think, "Its a sentence fragment, and in all caps. Advice meme? Probably." And, lo and behold…

    Just wanted you guys to know that. You know, cus that's the joke. Not sure which part of this statement is a joke but I made sure that you guys got it. Now i'm going to post an annoyingly large gif at the bottom of this to make it even longer!

    Two Pokemon submissions in a row?

    I know we haven't sucked all the humor out of TF2 and Minecraft yet.
    We have a quota to meet, people.

    Meowth, that's right!

  17. invadingduck on April 8th, 2011 2:48 pm

    Meowth! That's right!

    COME FOR THE SUBMISSION

    STAY FOR THE COMMENTS

  19. TheHighscore on April 8th, 2011 3:38 pm

    I usually just get rid of the FIRST attack I think is the most useless. Besides, I thought all Pikachu could say was "Pika?"

  20. Deep Thought on April 8th, 2011 3:41 pm

    HOLY SHIT! MY HALOLZ WENT HTML ON ME!

  21. Toldry on April 8th, 2011 4:30 pm

    I don't understand how knowing English has anything to do with knowing battle moves.

    And saying he "learned the entire English language" is also inaccurate,I'm sure there are professors in Oxford who are still trying to accomplish that.

  22. Rexxmech on April 8th, 2011 4:39 pm

    If it makes Pikachu feel better, we humans forgot how to hop fences and sell beverages at reasonable prices. We also need you to make 10 year olds the most powerful people in the world

    What happened to the Tradatorium?

    Isn't it weird that no one is hating a Pokemon advice meme when advice memes in general are hated in Halolz?

  27. Rain on April 8th, 2011 9:51 pm

    The REAL question about Pokemon is HOW they can speak with each other just by saying their names to each other over and over again

    Maybe Pokemon are omni-linguists?

  28. walktovanish on April 8th, 2011 10:38 pm

    Must… learn…. FIIIIVVEEE!!!!

    sorry all i got on this one.

    OJECTION!

    <img src="http://doulifee.com//Storage/aceatt/Gyakutenprosecutor/ani-godot-gestures-mug.gif&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    According to Meowth, in the Pokemon Anime itself, he claims that he is unable to learn Pay Day, as a trade off for learning to speak. He claims to have 'used up all his move slots' doing so. Therefore….

    <img src="http://doulifee.com//Storage/aceatt/Gyakutenprosecutor/ani-godot-zoom.gif&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    This picture is unfunny, as it makes complete sense in the world of Pokemon! The English Language doesn't take up multiple move slots, it only takes up one!
