Pokemon - I Got a Million Pokeballs!
If you look when Ash is about to battle (other people do it too, but not as often) then when he throws a Pokeball you will see it open and the Pokemon will come out, but you never see Ash pick it up! And in the next shot where the two Pokemon are facing each other the Pokeballs are gone! What happened to them?

You are all wrong. Note that in the beginning of Pokémon: The First Movie Ash faces a pokémon trainer. When Ash throws a pokéball, it hits the ground, opens, releases the pokémon inside, closes, and finally flies back to Ash. It's the same for every pokémon battle, whether on the show, or in the movies. By the way, in the show, they usually don't show what happens to the pokéball to save time.

From that last comment, i think, about the which pokéball holds which pokémon, whoever trains, like in the video game, arranges his/her pokéballs on his/her belt, so that you know which one is that one! simple theory!! (use your brain) -=sparky=-

Whenever anyone throws a pokeball, they usually jump 6 of so feet in the air, throw their ball, then fall again, the ball usually flies back into their hand for some reason. This also happens when anyone tries to catch a pokemon, I think it happened when Jesse caught the lickitung.

When he tries to catch pokemon but the ball flies back, he catches it.

And have you noticed that he only gets 6 pokéballs at the beginning? Picks them up or not he has used more than 6.

To Mophead: Maybe he bought some? In the game you have to buy them. Professor Oak gives you none.

They press that white button in the middle and the Poké Balls grow. Hey, does anyone else find it a tad adult when the juggler in Koga's gym says "Dropped my balls!"

You are being pretty picky here because: 1. It is just a cartoon, and 2. It is Japanese anime, where they tend to get rid of anything that is not immediately important to the storyline.

Wheeeeeeeee! It's fun to debate on stupid little subjects as this one. Yeh, it's awful weird how they just vanish like that and Ash don't even care about retrieving them (look it the ep. Bye Bye Butterfree, it's what I call wasteful! ^_^) but yer all kinda getting uptight about this. I think it's one of the things you just ignore, don't bother trying to figure it out, and enjoy the show because let me tell you, you are *never* gonna find out. =)

To clarify the lightning bolt ball problem, Ash never took the ball. The Pokémon is released from it's "birth" ball and transferred to a regular ball. Prof. Oak keeps the "birth" ball.

Ah but one thing, you don't see it too often, but the pokeballs immediately turn around and return... Most the time the focus goes toward the battle so who knows they probially are intended to be returned but are out of scene

I seriously doubt that trainers in the cartoon would be careless enough to drop PokéBalls, though I suppose that this debate is about trainers having limitless PokéBalls, if true they wouldn't mind losing one! Or if you're a sleezball showoff like Gary who doesn't 'need' extra balls.

I think you're being kind of picky. If Ash ran and grabbed the Pokeball after he throws it every battle, wouldn't that be kind of ridiculous?

1. The trainer throws the ball, it hits the ground, releases the pokemon, closes, comes back to the trainer.(thank you #150-Mew) 2.Ash goes to buy Pokeballs of course because there are pokemarts in the show. 3.The trainer takes the ball out of the belt presses the button and it expands.

HEY, Don't diss Gary Oak! He's a decent trainer, unlike *SOME* on the show... =) Besides, he saved Ash's hide in the Battle of the Badge.

They often show a trainer pull a pokeball off his or her belt, push the button and the ball grows. As for the six pokeballs, maybe Ash used Pikachu's pokeball to catch Crabby. lol.

How big ARE those things, anyway? On a belt they look as big as ping-pong balls, but when people hold them, they "magically" are the size of softballs!

What I wanna is how do they know which Poke'mon is stored in which Pok'eball? I mean they're all identical for cryin' out loud! And on the subject on Manny the Juggler, I can't help laughing when he says "My hands are for Pok'emon, not for people." He must REALLy love his Pokies, lol!

Jesus! Shut up everyone! The thing is, pokemon is a Japanese show, every thing they do doesn't make sense. In pokemon, there are little monsters running around making friends with humans, in digimon, there are monsters that live in another dimension and transport kids back and forwards through them. My point is, pokeballs are probably magic considering that they can fly, expand, and that they are Japanese!

Also, when Prof Oak gives Pikachu to Ash, there is a small lightening bolt on the Pokeball. In the episodes where the Spearow attack Pikachu (where Pikachu finally learns to trust Ash) and when they are in the snow cave, Ash demands Pikachu gets back in the Pokeball, but there is no lightening bolt on it. Did Ash trade Pokeballs somewhere or did he scratch it off?

Hello?! A Pikachu is never born a Pikachu! It's a Pichu when it hatches.

He isnt really being picky because it is kind of weird the way they throw the balls and the next second you look they are gone.
