Pokemon - Fire Blast, or Was It Ember?
1. Watch the 2 part episode of pokemon shown on
9-18(or 19)-99. This episode is where Ash and Co. face Blane.
2. On part one, towards the end, Blane calls up a magmar against pikachu, and towards the very end, he tells magmar to use fire blast.
3. On part two, the narrator says that pikachu is getting attacked by the Ember attack.
Sorry if this is soooo picky, but I tend to notice stupid things.
Special Requirements:
sort of a quick ear, and a good memory.

"Ember" is a wimpy little fireball that even Oddish would survive. "Fire Blast" is a TM that many Pokemon (Magmar included) can learn and seriously wipes out the competition. I've never seen that episode, but if you have, read the criteria above and judge for yourself. If it helps, Magmar can't learn Ember (Fire Punch, baby!).

Yeah, if you remember when Ash was fighting Blaine and the gym was destroyed, don't quote me on this but Blaine started to say Ash deserved...then Ash said the badge. Blaine got angry and said another chance. This is proof that Ash is spoiled.

Hmm, I meant to say that pokemon in the SERIES can have more than 4 attacks. It would appear they can have an unlimited number of attack types. It's also interesting to note Ash never says things like 'Oh no, Pikachu's run out of thunderbolts!'

Well, I have this theory about some electric/lightning/light/whatever Pokemon: Some Pokemon, (Like Magnemite or Magneton) can run out of electricity if they use electric attacks continually. The electricity is regenerated in the Pokemons body, so they can't comepletely run "out of power" but sometimes they need time to recharge.

DID Lt. Surge's Raichu run out of electricity? I thought Pikachu just used speed attacks to weaken it! And this Ember/Fireblast debate- it's obvious that Pikachu wouldn't get the terrible burns on his back that he got from the Fireblast from an Ember! And you all know what an Ember looks like- the Pokemon spins round and blows fire. A Fireblast is where a huge tongue of flame blasts out and flies through the air. If you don't believe me, ask Pikachu- he knows for sure! ^o_o^

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. Especially you, Gungan Din. It seems we have been wrong about the Ember Attack. In the episode "The Bridge Bike Gang", Ash's Charmander uses the Ember attack and beats a Golem! But, Ash's Charmander can beat a Primeape with its Rage attack. Y'know, I think Poke`mon battles are fixed!

That's how they work on the show, it's a similar theory to the Power Point stuff, but not totally limited to it. As we learned in the Pewter City episode and the one with the Magnemite breeder (Y'all come back, y'hear?) electric Pokemon are like batteries. If you overuse them, they'll be drained of their charge and will have to rest while they gather and build up electric pressure. In fact I think you all know that by not discharging electricity for a long time, a Pikachu's electric pressure may become too high and it'll get sick. Other Pokemon work in the same way. A blastoise can pump a LOT of water per minute but it's limited to how much it can carry before it has to drink to maintain its high pressure. A Charizard may, after a long battle, have a dangerously low pulse (dragons have hearts of liquid fire) and thus its tail flame decreases. Mebbe an Alakazam can only manage so many psybeams before it's gotta take an asprin O,o

Sorry, Kicker, but as we learned from "The Magic Stone", the show doesn't get this sort of stuff right. Unless Charmander was at least 10 levels above Golem, Ember wouldn't do much damage, especially to a rock/ground opponent. If you have Pokemon Stadium, look up Pokemon with Ember and Fire Blast. Ember Power: 40 Fire Blast Power: 120 Fire Blast is also described as the "strongest fire attack". Jes' doin' my part to eradicate PokeIgnorance. Farewell! Wherever Anti-Boggle is, Boggle Boy will be close behind!

Just what I've been trying to say, Gungan D. Pokemon make loads of mistakes, but I think what they were doing in the Bridge Bike gang episode was just make it that Ash Ketchum won a battle, because it pleases the kiddies. Notice that if Ash has lost a battle, he either gets to try again and wins it the second time, or he gets praised for bravery or skill and gets a gym badge anyway. Trainers who did one or both of these include: Brock, Misty, Blane, Lt. Surge, Sabrina... It's because it's a kids' programme, and kids love to see the good guys win. A perfect example of this is when Ash had just caught a Caterpie, he managed to beat a Koffing and an Ekans with it. Now, it must have been below level 7, because that's when it evolves. You couldn't beat a Koffing, Ekans and Meowth with one of those.

Yeah, that is strange, isn't it! Another error is that when the ember/fireblast was heading toward Pikachu, in Part I, Ash said Watch out, Pikachu. And in part II, Ash said you'll feel 100% soon, Pikachu, which he also said later, when he was healing Pikachu's wounds.

I was just looking at @sskicker's 2nd last comment and would like to say, you are 110% right. How many times have the power rangers actually really lost to the evil ones and how many battles has ash really lost and never had one of those things happen and who could forget, how many times has the coyote caught that bloody annoying road runner. I know that at the start of some rated movies he does but it's not the same. I would just for once like to see the "good" guys lose. It is really annoying.

It's so predictable! And that's what younger children love to see. People say that Pokémon can teach a child morals. For example, "if you try hard enough, it will work", or "never give up, if whatever you're doing is right", and "the good guys always win". But that's why we don't like it. Then there's Digimon, on the other hand. Not very predictable at all, great. But some people would say that some of the bad Digimon are far too scary for younger children to see. They'll have nightmares and hide behind the sofa. There are good bits in both of the shows, and that's why some of us are writing a new story with most of the good bits from both shows. Pogimon! On the Discussion Board.

It's about time someone else tried to point that out! ^_^ Thanks Magmar. Nobody else seems to realize that Ash is spoiled. Not even Mars G! And he's, like, the ultimate Ash-hater!

As T-zone spoke, he, Magmar, and Mars Guo were attacked by a mob of angry Pokéfans ages 5 to 14. They were taken down and killed, but even that wouldn't stop them. With his dying breath, T-zone uttered "James is gay" and Magmar nodded his head sagely. Mars Guo just screamed "No! They're wrong! I'm surrounded by a bunch of crazy people..." And then he was shot in the back of the head by Disgruntled, who then ran around and trashed slipups.com, killing all Ash-haters in the world, which was everybody except him. And that was the end of the Ash-haters.

Hey guys, we all know that Fireblast is a much better attack than Ember. It was a mistake, so what? Oh, and i know that you are all Ash-haters, but what would the show be whitout Ash becoming a famous Pokemaster and winning every battle? No audience, no money, no Pokemon. If you think it's such a stupid show why do you watch it?

No,he said AN ember attack. It could've been any attack since ember is fire.

I've seen the first part of that "two-parter". It is fire blast in that part of the episode, and for those who might want to know, I also go by the nickname EggMaster on eeggs.com, slip-ups.com, and triviastic.com

Is my face red! Just two days after posting my last comment, I caught a Magmar of my own and it knew.... Ember! But it still stands that no gym leader would keep such a weak attack.

Gungan, I've heard people say that Ember is more powerful than Fire Blast. Uhhh...And why do a lot of these slipups involve fire-types? My favorite is Ice.

Nope, besides the fact that it's more accurate than Fireblast, and an ember attack (in real life) would generate more force and impact, ember totally sucks. Hey, did y'all notice that out of all 251 Pokemon, Charizard is the only Stage 2 fire type Pokemon?

Actually, Gungan Din, it would appear that pokemon in the game can have more than 4 attacks. For example, the likes of tackle, scratch, and thundershock, generally thought to be weak attacks, are kept all the time.

Mars Guo writes:
The Pojo Pokemon Analysis Guide defines ember as a flaming ball of fuel that charmander throws for a fire attack that generates force, too. Fireblast didn't have a definition, but I believe it's like Flamethrower, but highly concentrated and with some explosive properties.

Ember, in the show is actually a strong attack(in the episode of "enter the dragonite") and in the game is the first fire attack charmander learns? right?

Yeah, we've got everything, and the good guys don't always win. Cool. And yes, it is very annoying to see Ash win every single battle he fights in. Either that or the trainer takes pity on him and awards him the badge or whatever he was fighting for. Blah. But, take for example, the episode where Ash battles A.J. and loses. A.J. just acknowledges him for the stubborn, pig-headed moron he is. Boo-yah! Hmph, once you think about it, it's kinda not fair. Nobody except Disgruntled likes Ash, yet he always wins his battles. Geeeeezz. I mean, come on! Sheesh...

Well, for the love of the Purple Banana, that's where I'm heading! By the way, in that comment that you always put up, before you disable commenting on a slip-up, it says to lick on the Discussion Link. I tried licking on it, and all I got was a link that didn't work. (Hint) In other words, it says lick instead of click. I hate licking glass. You for got the "C" in click.

Oh, and thanks, Gunga Din, for helping to get rid of my "PokéIgnorance". Much use that's going to be to me, as a Digimon fan.
