Well if you were staring at all those babes, you'd get struck dum too. Which is the state Brock is always in. As for your meaningless name calling, bah. Mockery is the ignorant mans weapon.

When did Bulbasaur use Whirlwind? Are you sure you don't mean Butterfree?

If I'm not mistaken Pikachu took out that rhydon by hitting the weak spot.Maybe ALL the rock/ground types have weak spots.

I think Golem is a Rock-Ground type, right? So, technichally it would be impossible. Maybe Golem used that electrical energy from Pikachu to convert it into an Explosion which Pikachu avoided. That's my theory.

Bulbasaur knew Whirlwind in some of the earlier episodes, before it learned Solar Beam.

If I'm not mistaken, rock types aren't necessarily immune to electric type attacks. Many rock types are also ground types, though, which are immune to electricity. In the game, btw, Viridian gym is full of ground type Pokemon, which would render Pikachu virtually useless.

djcati> Yes it is true that Pikachu beat a CUBONE (not Marowak) in "school of hard knocks", but he didn't use electrical attacks, he used agility and stuff.

Pikachu did also beat a Marowak, in an episode where Ash has all 8 badges and is making his way back to Pallet. He fights a trainer who has to give Ash all of his badges if he loses. If he wins, Ash must hand over his badges.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for calling attention to this! I thought I was seeing things before! But you believe me! ^_^ This has happened a number of times before with no reasonable explaination. Before I go on I would like to point out that Rock Pokemon *ARE* affected by Electrical attacks, it's GROUND Pokemon that have the ultimate resistance. * In Cinnibar Gym Pikachu destroys Rhydon, but at least there was a decent explaination for this. So I'll let it go. * In Viridian Gym, Pikachu thunderbolts a Ground Pokemon of some sort into submission. No explaination. * On the path to the Pokemon league Pikachu encounters a marowak and thunderbolts the daylights out of it. This would not be so hard to explain except for the fact that Gezelles Cubone (in The School of Hard Knocks) was totally unaffected by electricity so Pikachu was forced to use normal attacks to beat up the poor parentally deprived creature. No explaination for hte Marowak phenomonon. * In the first movie during the theme song, the guy sends out Pinsir, Venomoth, and Golem in his rage. Pikachu thunder's all three and KOs each with one hit -- no explaination. This is buggin the heck outta me. I would also like to say that Cubone is my all-time favorite Pokemon, bless 'is liddle heart 'n' all. =P

A shallow spoiled brat? You die now. Ash is neither shallow or a brat. And you by the way, are a tunahead. And Cubone is a scumbag and Brock was a sexual pervert and a obvious psychopath. So there!

This is what the slip-up should look like: Have you seen the episode 'The school of Hard Knocks?' It explains how it matters on the level, not only the type. Another name for the episode should be 'I am so stupid!'

Well, I have a whole theory on Brock's Geodude. Normal Geodudes generally roll along the ground, or "walk" using their hands. (See Pokemon Snap, River stage, for the latter method.) Brock's Geodude shuns these methods of transportation and prefers to simply fly about at will. So I'm guessing that Brock's Geodude is some weird one-in-a-trillion mutant Rock/Flying type. Since it isn't part Ground, it has no immunity, and by its Flying type is actually weak to Electric. Of course, I can't explain a Bulbasaur using Whirlwind. Or Leech Seed always fainting anything it's used against. Or a Pokemon being "out of the match" if it falls asleep. Except that maybe whoever made the show didn't know beans about the game. Or maybe they're by-products of "real life-izing" Pokemon. (Such as no turn-based system.)

You have to remember pikachu is a real strong pokemon at a real high level, and Jessie and James are real bad trainers, and you were watching the tv show, not the game, and I 've seen pikachu beat plant pokemon before and a GROUND one, ( or did one of ash's other pokemon beat marowak? I don't remember)

Hey, it's not like they are in post production or anything. It's illegal to sell them in shops on the market, at lots of off-licences over the country, it is OK to sell them to a few buds (and you are my buds, right?)

Lol! I simply have to laugh at that last comment. Yeah, I wouldn't define Ash as spoiled. Not by a long shot! (the Ash Ketchum Get A Life foundation, or AKGAL, presented him with the "I-was-disowned-by-my-mom-and-replaced-by-a-Mr.-Mime Badge" not a month ago) But a brat, yes, he is, along with every other name Team Rocket has resorted to calling him in the past. Yes, even "Charlie-boy". Fur and Famine, he's the only character WORSE than Tracey, and the writers have begun to show their hatred and pity for him as well. ASH: Are they Pokemon? BROCK: *whack* Don't be dumb! -- Excerpt from "Dig those Diglett" upon first hearing of Gary's fan club.

Pikachu beat a Golem with a Thundershock (probably the weakest electrical attack) in the Pokemon Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back as well. But remember, in the episode when Ash battled Brock for the Boulder Badge, he DID give Pikachu super powers with a hydro-electrical plant. Episodes like that one show a terrible sense of humour- hurting small animals. Also, in the Pokemon Mini-Movie, Pikachu's Vacation, you can see Psyduck eating an apple which was for Togepi- a big, stupid creature stealing a baby's food. I think scenes like those are SICK! They shouldn't show them in Europe! Kids will get IDEAS.

I agree with djacti. In Pokémon Gold and Silver (GS), Ash's Pikachu is level 81. If a Pikachu was able to beat so many gym leaders; it's obvious Pikachu's level is past 40.

It's all just a hackneyed storytelling device that is the subject of about 3 or 4 slip-ups. The writers don't care about logic at all. They just show what we want to see (or what they think we want to see): the plucky little underdog (underchu?) defeat the big bad Pokemon, hip hip monlee or something. The show skewers all established logic because it would be UNSPEAKABLE to have Pikachu (a cypher, little more) and Ash (a shallow spoiled brat) suffer any downfall at all. In any event, Pikachu's "thundershock" is a crutch that the writers use to avoid thinking up a creative way to wage battle, prefering to have Pikachu take out any and all opponents in one blow, leaving them charred and groaning in a heap. 'Nuff said, I believe. Oh, by the way, I think Lt. Surge's Raichu is Pikachu's brother, since it's "invincible", too. Note among the Pokemon groaning in the ER are Oddish and Sandshrew, who should have DOMINATED Raichu. Oh, well. When an evil invincible meets a good invincible, good wins.

By the way, in Pokémon for Gameboy, an electric Pokémon has no effect on rock Pokémon no matter how high a level is. MewMaster9000 has a good question there, what does this slip-up have to do with a magic stone.

Golem and Rhydon are both part-Ground too. But here's one definite mistake related to this. You say that only Ground or part Ground Pokémon have the Electrical resistance. That's completely true, and I'm not saying it isn't. But in "Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon", Pikachu tries to electrocute a Kabutops and fails! Kabutops is Rock/Water, and since Pikachu can usually turn Water Pokémon into mashed potato, and only Ground Pokémon have a resistance, I can only think of one explanation. Kabutops had been fossilized and had picked up a sort of Ground thing.
