That's 15.4%


I've caught more than him just in Black 2.

The writers were high when they made Ash pledge to catch them all.

Even in the first season (where he made said pledge), he clearly had no intention to catch much more beyond his main team.

You don't have to devote time to showcasing their abilities regularly for the sake of advertising, nor do you have to bond with and love with them individually.

If so, then all is forgiven.

Yeah the whole catch em' all thing was an added slogan by the localization team and was dropped starting with Ruby and Sapphire. I guess that the dub followed that slogan.
