Ash has seen Koffing almost as much as he's seen his own Pikachu due to James always using it against him in the majority of Kanto-Johto. I understand the show now is trying to bring in younger audiences who weren't around when Pokemon first began. But for us veteran show watchers and Pokemon battlers, seeing this is kinda "Uh...what?!"

It's bad enough Ash acts and battles like it's his first time going through a region, but seeing him use a Pokedex to scan Koffing is kind of a slap to the face.

Anyone else agree or disagree?
I know I'm a little late to this but I watched this episode myself not too long ago and thought exactly the same thing. But as stated by others I guess the younger newer audiences wouldn't know about the James' Koffing and would be thinking 'omg look at that strange pokemon' lol
