    Default Deaths in the pokemon manga

    Hey guys, I just needed your input on something. You know how, in the manga, pokemon like Brock's onix and giovanni's golem get shattered, or broken apart, or whatever. Well do you think that KILLS the pokemon, or will it reform. I think that if the pokemon were killed, they wouldn't be used in battle in the first place, but I really don't know...

    Nope

    Onix showed up A-ok.

    I can't remember if Golem did

    But Brandon's Regirock did the same thing and was fine

    The Golem blew up, so I'm pretty sure it'd be hard to reform everything that got flung far away.

    As for Onix, he probably has about 20 of them.
    Regirock is also different, because it's made of random pieces of rocks. It's also legendary and has far more power in the manga than anime or games, so that could factor in.

    Actually, I never left.

    In that case, every Pokemon that uses Selfdestruct or Explosion would drop dead (very contradictory of the original games), and so would that Graveler that Poli froze and then shattered earlier in the same arc.

    Brock states that the same Onix Red blew up had come back to fight alongside him in the original, dude. I have volume 3. Besides, plenty of excrutiating injuries (such as Moltres' torn wing) have been fixed up perfectly fine in the healing machines.

    Why can they have healing machines for Pokémon, but not people?

    Humans don't fit in Pokeballs, so to fashion healing machines for humans, we'd need to make them half the size of a gymnasium. :P

    Blaine should've used this treatment when he was sick because of Mewtwo :3

    All jokes aside, doubt it was all that simple (even if healing tanks were around). The Mewtwo cells were not only permanently integrated into his arm, but eventually began to spread into other areas in his upper body by the time he sought Entei. Considering Mewtwo is a fucking genetic mutant engineered for utter dominance among Pokemon, it ain't as simple as healing wounds or piddly poison.

    However, the Lorelei frostbites, on the other hand, would be perfectly repairable by means of the human balls!

    Of course! The machine can heal anything frozen and wounds, so frostbites would be included in the list of things it could heal.

    Strange enough, despite deaths being constantly raved about when it comes to Special, the only deaths I can remember were in Ruby and Sapphire

    To be fair, I haven't finished the Emerald saga yet, but thanks for the interesting tidbit on Serebii.

    I think it brought Steven, Norman, and Courtney through an alternate timeline where they didn't die, not Ruby and Sapphire.

    But that's probably just me being in denial.

    I think the only permanent deaths in the manga that I know of are Pryce's Laprases but I could be wrong.
