    Default Anime=/=Games

    Ok, so I'm really growing tired of this being used as an excuse. I admit I've done it myself, but this is now being used as a common excuse for removing trivia.

    For example, this is considered Anime=/=Games by the user, yet, if you look at the recent Daybreak Contest episode (DP162), "Togetic was hit by Shadow Ball despite being a Normal-type" is not considered Anime=/=Games.

    So what I'm getting at here: I don't know how, but somehow we need to define what exactly are acceptable game differences and what aren't (as in what can and what can't go in trivia). I don't feel like the Anime Physics page is really anything to go by.

    I haven't seen the episode yet but I'm pretty sure that shadow ball was a mistake that slipped past the writers.
    But, I guess the games are less complex than a real life situation, like in the Anime they do a lot of combination moves that wouldn't be possible in the games(like that Aqua Jet-Ice Beam thing.) For example, remeber at that Justin Beiber concert where he got hit with a water bottle? If you were playing a video game on Justin Beiber concerts, you probably wouldn't get hit with a water bottle.
    Get me?

    When's the last time a ghost move didn't affect a normal type in the anime?

    Only time type effectiveness really seems to matter in the anime is if they care to make a point of it. Like "OH NOES ASH'S CHARIZARD IS WEAK TO WATER".

    i think the only line to draw here is that other than the Pokemon themselves, the anime just does whatever the crap it wants. the ground-type/electric-type rule is the only one that seems to hold up on a constant basis, and even that was initially bypassed thanks to Pikachu aiming for the horn.

    As for immunities being ignored in battles... meh, they do it all the time, but I still think we should mention it when they do.

    I don't think we can count the appearance of multiple instances of the same Legendaries in the anime as anime=/=games.

    That's not able to be ignored. We must mention type matchup failures. Other stuff that doesn't follow the games strictly (such as there being a several Lugia) is just... yeah.

    I thought that the movie called them that anyways.

    But yeah, the games are the root media. If the anime directly contradicts the laws of the games, then it should be noted. Multiple Lugia doesn't really count, since no where in the game does it say that there can't be multiples.

    Evil Figment (7:59:44 PM): Ryuu, however shakily you started, I've got to hand it to you that you earned my respect the hard way.

    The solution is to stop watching the show altogether.

    Ignorance is bliss.
