Pokemon fans severely overrate the power of Pokemon.

Agreed.

I mean if a random human has base stats of 100/100/100/100/100/100 with the Pure Power ability then we could take on a couple of Pokemon. :s

Its like some people in this topic didn't play DP. Dialga/Palkia were destroying the world (and potentially Universe!) RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU so Cyrus could re-create it. This topic shoulda ended on the first page. -_-

Seriously. they swear a Pokemon can destroy the world. Nah.


Well, they can. If it wasn't for Ash, they would have done it several times over in the movies alone.

Plus, a creature as common as Gyrados can not level cities. By. Itself.


A city is nowhere even close to the world. Not cloe at all.


But the thing is that Gyrados is one of the weaker Pokemon and it can cause that much damage.


Uh, no. Gyarados is a top tier Pokemon. It can take out some legendaries.

Maybe gameplay-wise, but not in terms of the story.

Edit: Actually, not even gameplay-wise. It's speed isn't that great and it's 4x weak to Electric.

In terms of story, Gyarados is extremly strong. Thats the whole point of Magikarp -> Gyarados

Doesn't Arceus recreate the universe everytime you get an egg? JUST so you could have THAT one egg? What the heck couldn't that stupid goat erase all of existance?

Not really. There are so many other Pokemon that are MUCH, MUCH more powerful story-wise. Why is this still going on? Everyone has already explained that certain Pokemon could destroy the world. If you still deny Arceus then it's pointless for me to argue.

No, Gamefreak severely overrates their power. They expressly state that Arceus is god, that Palkia/Dialga are masters of space/time, that Tyranitar is indestructible, etc.

It's stupid, but it's the developers making them ridiculously powerful, not the players.

But if the developers do that, it is their power. That's not overrating it, that's just making them absurdly powerful.

And people have no problems with marvel/dc characters. Complain about them before you complain about pokemon.
