Do Pokemon die ?

#1natarlePosted 3/15/2013 8:10:25 AM
Can we list any instances where the anime or manga deals with pokemon death ?
Its always been something of interest for me. Ever since lavender town back in the day.

I'm pretty sure the whole Lavender Town thing in the original games makes it clear that yes, Pokemon can die.

There have been Pokemon cemetaries in all media except the anime.

A Latios and Lucario died in Pokemon movies.

In the manga, there are several corpses in Lavender being used by Team Rocket as ''zombies''.

A bit later, Charmeleon cuts an Arbok in half, though it is shown much later that it regenerated.

A bit later, Giovanni kills two Magmars with his Cloyster.

I still didnt get to the Yellow Chapter, so i am unsure if there are any more deaths.

I thought they made it clear in dex entries that charmander die if their tail flames go out.

No he did die, but the other Celebi "reversed" that Celebi's time back to being alive.
