    Well, look on the bright side. Now he has more of a chance to take on Joey.

  2. VaultLegend on February 22nd, 2012 8:16 am

    I don't think Joey is even alive yet. What was he, 4?


    Pokemon Origins: Joey's Rattata.

  3. jostimaster on February 22nd, 2012 8:18 am

    That trainer isn't the only idiot. Catching a Mewtwo with a pokéball is easy.
    Catching Mewtwo with a Hyper potion, however…

  4. Lost Hunter on February 22nd, 2012 8:21 am

    An orange covered in vaseline? How about Combustible Lemons!

  5. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 8:27 am

    Long story short, there were no survivors.

  6. sonicsmash2 on February 22nd, 2012 8:38 am

    Somewhat Relevant!

    Thus proving why the Master ball, is a Master…..

  7. Zoe on February 22nd, 2012 8:46 am

    I'm not the only who thinks the Dorkly videos aren't funny 90% of the time, right?

  8. ChemicalKirby on February 22nd, 2012 8:46 am

    This must be the story of Joey….

  9. VaultLegend on February 22nd, 2012 8:50 am

    Its hit or miss really. If this video was shorter and less emphasized maybe..

  10. Alpar on February 22nd, 2012 9:30 am

    Ones that are good are usually posted here.

  11. Korotini_Notlad on February 22nd, 2012 9:31 am

    Damn it Red! Explain yourself!

  12. A_R_ on February 22nd, 2012 9:38 am

    LT Surge survived.
    And he hides away behing trap doors all the time ever since that day…

  13. Alpar on February 22nd, 2012 9:45 am

    This is canon. Everyone wasted a Master Ball on some incredibly mook Pokemon. And we're responsible for the humiliation of an entire company. Looking back at it, it probably wasn't the smartest thing I've do-


  14. Alpar on February 22nd, 2012 9:46 am

    Also, regarding concerns to the Master Ball, my cousin never cared. He caught a Zapdos perfect health first turn with a Pokeball. After something like that, you'd assume nobody else would care about the Master Ball being put in a situation like that. Almost.

    Just a fun story I thought I'd share.

  15. Ovahdrive on February 22nd, 2012 10:03 am

    Dorkly: Making animations out of jokes that everyone has been saying for years.

    For me, Dorkly suffers from the Jeff Dunham complex. I don't really find it funny, but I do find it entertaining.

  17. Valvatorez on February 22nd, 2012 10:08 am

    Oh, so that's why he decided to hide in that mountain!

  18. Chimental on February 22nd, 2012 10:34 am

    Metapod stole the whole show.

  19. MasqueNoMercy on February 22nd, 2012 10:37 am

    gotta love a good quest where your goal is to protect a precious… something… and then in return for beating everyone that was going to steal that… something… the person in charge of that… something … tells you it's the only one in the world but you can have it!

  20. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on February 22nd, 2012 10:38 am

    I used the masterball on a polywhirl

  21. Deep Thought on February 22nd, 2012 10:39 am
  22. SirNumel on February 22nd, 2012 10:42 am

    I used a Masterball on a Skarmory.

  23. Armetron on February 22nd, 2012 10:42 am

    ha I beet you, I used a master ball on a magikarp

  24. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on February 22nd, 2012 10:44 am

    Oh yeah? well I used a masterball on your mom and it didn't work. she wouldn't fit………

  25. MC Ninja on February 22nd, 2012 10:49 am

    Trainer threw Hyper potion

    Mewtwo regained health

  29. shogungari on February 22nd, 2012 12:07 pm

    Well, at least we know why Red never talks now…

  30. Passerby Boy on February 22nd, 2012 12:23 pm

    With Red sounding like that, no wonder he doesn't talk.

  31. CriticalQuit on February 22nd, 2012 12:24 pm

    Someday in the future, Red's gonna look back on this and cry.

  32. Smiles122 on February 22nd, 2012 12:33 pm

    I didn't know Ellis played Pokemon

  33. SirRainbowBlitz on February 22nd, 2012 12:58 pm

    Exactly. They sort of ran the joke into the ground. If they had cut it down on time and not had nearly as much dialogue, the joke would have been a lot more effective. Dorkly is just very meh most of the time.

  34. Axel X on February 22nd, 2012 1:00 pm

    I already knew about Mewtwo from having a guide so I saved my Master Ball for generation I.

    Come Gold and Silver and I'm up against a Ho-Oh that just won't be caught! I accidentally used my Master Ball on it after running out of other balls.

    Now I just let my Master Balls either sit in my inventory or catch one of those damned roaming pokemon.

    Come Black and White and can I transfer the saved Master Balls I have? Nope.

  35. Axel X on February 22nd, 2012 1:09 pm

    Only one in existence? Ha!

    Meanwhile in Hoenn's Pokemon Lottery Corner…

    "Congratulations! Take this Master Ball."

    Not to mention the one you find in Team Magma/Aqua's hideout.

  36. C__F on February 22nd, 2012 1:11 pm

    "I am so getting fired for this."

    Okay, two things.

    One: You gave the Master Ball out to someone who saved the company. Everyone there owes him, and it shouldn't matter what he chooses to use it on. It's no longer your jurisdiction.

    Two: You're the Silph Co. president. You are the final word in all the decisions. Who can fire you!?

  37. MasterLuigi452 on February 22nd, 2012 1:11 pm
  38. AfroKirby64 on February 22nd, 2012 1:28 pm

    But what about Deku Nuts? Oh yeah… only Combustible Lemons blow the shit out of your opponents with a fuckton of awesome… How come stores in Kokiri Forest haven't gotten in on this? It would be great… King Dodongo would be no more >:D!!

  39. SuperPinkiePie on February 22nd, 2012 1:30 pm

    I was always upset that I couldn't catch the Marowak in Pokemon Tower.

  40. Dracojounin7 on February 22nd, 2012 1:42 pm

    …you did the same thing? I did that on my first runthrough of Crystal. :O

  41. AfroKirby64 on February 22nd, 2012 2:01 pm

    One: Perhaps he staged it? Perhaps he's psychic so he saw the future and Red's encounter with Mewtwo and gave him the ball so he can easily capture Mewtwo, but he forgot to mention that special piece of information (and hopefully did not tell Red about an invincible, Psychic-type, Pokemon-killing, big-ass kitten) and Red wasted the ball by capturing the Rattata.

    Two: Din? Farore? Nayru? I have no fucking idea.

    Also, Jesus I need to get The Legend of Zelda out of my head.

  42. Mindlessinvalid on February 22nd, 2012 2:04 pm

    I didn't even ever use my masterball. I kept it as a trophy.

  43. GanjalfTheGreen on February 22nd, 2012 2:09 pm

    <img src=""&gt;

    I feel wariolated.

  44. SirNumel on February 22nd, 2012 2:17 pm

    I did it on Crystal, too!


  45. SirNumel on February 22nd, 2012 2:20 pm

    The one time Devon Corp. was able to successfully outshine Silph Co.

  46. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 2:33 pm

    <img src=""&gt;
    So… do Nintendo employees always do drugs when game making?

  47. jack on February 22nd, 2012 2:58 pm

    Maybe stockholders or a board of executives? Is Silph Co. publicly traded?

  48. Alpar on February 22nd, 2012 3:10 pm

    I kept my Masterball as a trophy like Mindless there, too.

    Also, can't blame you. Skarmory is a bro.

  49. Alpar on February 22nd, 2012 3:10 pm

    Double post. All across the comments!

  50. Kn0w1d3a on February 22nd, 2012 3:12 pm

    Orange covered in vaseline? Wait….if pokeballs are made from apricorn which are fruit, wouldn't that actually be a good idea?

  51. Dash12345678 on February 22nd, 2012 3:26 pm

    I have way too many Masterballs spread out among my many Pokemon games.


  52. Dash12345678 on February 22nd, 2012 3:31 pm

    Can the Board of Directors vote him out?

  53. Lord_Science on February 22nd, 2012 3:38 pm

    He KILLED the board!
    DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUU- ::shot::

  54. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 3:43 pm


  55. C__F on February 22nd, 2012 3:44 pm

    HeartGold: I kept my Master ball through all the legendary encounters up until Mewtwo. And then I caught Mewtwo with good old fashioned Ultra ball spam.

    Every real Pokémon Trainer needs a bicycle and a Master ball in their bag.

  56. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 3:44 pm

    He scared Blaine so much that Blaine erupted the volcano and went to go hide in Seafoam Islands.

  57. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 3:45 pm

    Let's face it, they are far better than Machinima.

  58. C__F on February 22nd, 2012 3:55 pm

    Funny thing about that. Do any of you remember seeing any Silph Co. executive personnel aside from Mr. President?

    Yeah, I didn't either.

  59. Jimmy on February 22nd, 2012 4:21 pm

    You & me both man. I wanted to capture that thing and let it get revenge on Team Rocket.

  60. TheInsaneWombat on February 22nd, 2012 4:29 pm

    I caught a level 70 Palkia with a pokeball first turn. Also Dialga with an ultra ball but nobody gives a fuck about Dialga.

  61. Jimmy on February 22nd, 2012 4:30 pm

    But Vaseline? That would make it awfully difficult to grasp…

  62. straYDoubter on February 22nd, 2012 4:52 pm

    If a kid can save your corporation from an evil organization with nothing but some Pidgey and a Metapod, then he can use your million dollar investment to catch what he damn well wants.

  63. Jimmy on February 22nd, 2012 4:55 pm

    Not me man. Not me. I READ the description. I was a smart 8 year old. I knew what PERMANENT meant. I knew EXACTLY what to do. I never used it and bought a TON of Ultra Balls. I put that Master Ball in my PC. PCs LOVE Master Balls.

  64. Jimmy on February 22nd, 2012 4:56 pm

    Executives? No. Faithful employees that didn't have the balls to fight Team Rocket? Yes. I loved that one room with the beds. FLIPPIN' AWESOME. You know your company is awesome when they install beds for your to sleep on, AT WORK.

  65. BTSnoogans on February 22nd, 2012 4:57 pm

    You can call him a stupid kid all you want but the fact of the matter is he did something none of us have ever been able to do. He had 19 pidgeys and a metapod. See? He found a way around the "only carry six pokemon" restriction. Eat it, Professor Oak.

  66. BTSnoogans on February 22nd, 2012 4:59 pm

    Aww, gumballs. Why'd you have to point that out?

  67. BTSnoogans on February 22nd, 2012 5:00 pm

    Like car crashes.

  68. Jimmy on February 22nd, 2012 5:01 pm

    Yeah, try having like, 3 unused Master Balls transferred from Diamond, Sapphire, and Ruby versions to SoulSilver Version…and then Nintendo says "Nope.avi" to transferring items over in Pokémon Black & White. At least I still have THAT Master Ball…(I used only 1 Pokéball. I got the critical capture. FUCKING EPIC.)

  69. spartann30 on February 22nd, 2012 5:18 pm


  70. Zyquux on February 22nd, 2012 5:29 pm

    Well with my celery it's hard to afford more Pokeballs, so I have to take what I can get.

    (And yes, this was just an excuse to make a vegetable pun.)

  71. Zyquux on February 22nd, 2012 5:31 pm

    I looooove Ponytas.

    Ponytas are for battlin', Blue, not eatin'.

  72. Passerby Boy on February 22nd, 2012 5:37 pm

    I remember thinking I could use it to capture other trainers pokemon…. at least you got a pokemon out of your wasted master ball…

  73. Zoe on February 22nd, 2012 6:02 pm


  74. Deep Thought on February 22nd, 2012 6:27 pm

    Whoa, Deja Vu…

  75. Hong_Meiling on February 22nd, 2012 7:12 pm

    I used a Master Ball….that was defective, it caught me instead….Sakuya was also very mad that day…So many knives….

  76. C__F on February 22nd, 2012 7:14 pm

    Swats your only Master ball away.
    <img src="; /img>
    Calls you the thief.

  77. Hong_Meiling on February 22nd, 2012 7:22 pm


  78. Caelun_Niveus on February 22nd, 2012 8:03 pm

    Irrelevant comment on a submission. If someone saying "first" gets such violent -1s, or if he had been advertising Naruto instead… then why should this be any different?

    Shawn, this gives all the more reason to fix the forums. So stuff like this can be deposited there.

  79. nahnah390 on February 22nd, 2012 8:05 pm

    all things considered, the mewtwo in HGSS was unable to hurt you if you sent out a dark type, Tyranatar ( with that ability that summons a sandstorm) + ultra/dusk ball spam + loading your save game about 10 -- 15 times = easiest legendary ever… used master ball on Lugia.

  80. Red on February 22nd, 2012 8:09 pm

    That red is a spy!
    I have my master ball right here
    *rummages through bag*


  81. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 8:45 pm
  82. Passerby Boy on February 22nd, 2012 9:18 pm

    Swats away? It's more likely he grabs and pockets the poke/great/ultra/master ball and mocks you by calling you a thief.

  83. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 10:00 pm
  84. JesterJoe on February 22nd, 2012 10:01 pm

    So how's that rattata doing?

  85. Mindlessinvalid on February 22nd, 2012 10:19 pm

    Maybe if you'd stop letting random people in through the front gate, Miss Izayoi would stop knifing you. It's really simple. If you do your job, she'll stop having reasons to stab you.

    Also you might want to stop making comparisons between your respective figures, It's just a hunch but I assume she finds it very offensive.

  86. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 11:06 pm

    YES I DO!
    But, you are not the person I need to solve it.

  87. cy85 on February 22nd, 2012 11:18 pm

    Nope. Held onto it until I encountered wild eldritch abomination !#$%@%*(# and woke up later, forgetting what I'd been doing, but with Master Balls spilling out my backpack.

    And all the pokemon were caught from then on.

    Whoever was the last person to post on the forums before its deactivation must narrate this… dear hell I hope it's not me. My voice remains secret to the internet world D:

    …wait Shawn's the one that killed it. So.. that makes him Duke? Bah.

  91. Skrist on February 22nd, 2012 11:51 pm

    Pft, we can take him.

  92. The AntiVillain on February 23rd, 2012 12:38 am

    red would never waste a masterball on a ratatatta
    he would use it on a mountain

  93. Lucas on February 23rd, 2012 4:42 am

    Its kinda funny since i actually did catch him for the first time using a random pokeball I had, after throwing plenty of ultra balls and great balls at the bastard to no effect, then poof last ball caught him.

    Ah memories.

  94. Trunks on February 23rd, 2012 4:44 pm

    This isn't relevant right now, but the forums are coming back. But in a different way. We're working on it, but it's not top priority. I'm sorry, and I know that irritates a lot of you, but we've got other stuff we HAVE to do first.

  95. VoiceFromCorner on February 23rd, 2012 5:14 pm

    Dang, you too?
    My first Pokemon game. I was a noob. saw like two episodes of the anime. One movie. Extremely low experiance.
    I come across a pokemon while surfing that I assumed to be legendary, panicked and chucked my master ball at him.
    It was a lvl 36 Gyrados.

  96. Hong_Meiling on February 23rd, 2012 5:58 pm

    Shes just jealous for Obvious reasons…… Also she still owes me 300 Yen.

  97. Mindlessinvalid on February 24th, 2012 1:24 am

    I never thought I'd say this for a second time on Halolz, but it's just too good an opportunity to pass up.

    A woman doesn't need large breasts to have worth, having a smaller chest just lets me hold them closer to my heart.

    That said, I think sakuya is a fine woma- *knifed*

    (Should come up with a better leading line)

  98. Hong_Meiling on February 24th, 2012 3:13 pm


    I tried telling Sakuya that her chest is normal-ish but, she got a bow and shot me in the knee. (Dead meme is dead)

  99. Mindlessinvalid on February 24th, 2012 6:53 pm

    So what you're saying is… you used to make Sakuya feel bad about her figure, but then you took an arrow to the knee?

    Which knee? I gotta make sure I get the other one (Because I'm damned good archer irl) too.

  100. Hong_Meiling on February 24th, 2012 7:40 pm

    Well Shit….*Gets a Dao*

    Well, I say this fight was short,
    *dons shades*
    and to the point.
