You know...this is kind of off topic since it's not questioning ash...but really, it's one of those lines that make me question the writers sanity....

The reason this also happens more in Best Wishes is basically he's the only one in the traveling group that has a Pokedex. With AG and DP, the scanning of older pokemon usually is new girl doing.

The upside is tho that at least he does know what some are so him just scanning the pokedex is mostly for the under age 10 Japan audience of the show to know what it is.

Ah, my mistake. I actually didn't watch that episode so I wouldn't have known that. Still, pulling up information into the Pokedex is still for the newest generation of 10-year olds.

... And I still believe that him using it on Koffing or past generation Pokemon is not as bad as him using it on Pokemon he used it on a few episodes before. Watching a bit more he's done it with more than just Palpitoad.

What the HELL is this thing. Better use the PokeDex. "Pikachu is an Electric Type"

I want to see Ash use the Pokedex on a Pikachu. Because, you know, he needs a reminder on such rarely seen pokemon.

Naw instead we get Shootie who uses it on Pikachu. I don't think the writers are ever going to make Ash that dumb unless he gets amnesia or something.

Also, recently he uses the Pokedex on a Roserade. A Pokemon he sees back in Sinnoh. I'm going to guess that people judged him harshly on that as well. Maybe.

My biggest complain on this topic is the lazy animation of the Anime. There is a living, breathing pokemon animal on the screen moving around. And then, from the bottom of the screen, the pokedex slides up and replaces the moving picture of a pokemon with a static non-moving picture of a pokemon.

That really has to be the biggest fail I've seen in anime... And there are quite a lot of them.
The trainers not caring (most of the time) about effectiveness is what has to be the most annoying part of it, though.

I guess we have to put up with it to keep watching Pokemon...

This is nothing new, he used his PokéDex on a Charizard in Johto... Seriously, there's no point complaining and I bet a lot of younger viewers had no idea what a Koffing was.

Actually the image on the Pokedex Rotates and it's not always the case as far as I know.

Also this is only my thoughts and headcanon but it seems that in some (recent) cases he does it on pokemon he's seen recently (aka Unova Pokemon) in order to remember what the Pokedex says and devise a strategy. If not then you can will probably all go nuts when he uses his Pokedex in the Unova League on Pokemon he's already seen. Also the Buizel and Corphish (I think it was Corphish) he encounters later (which I have a reason why he uses the Pokedex for them but I'm sure no one cares/will listen anyways).

I understand the Koffing thing though.

Right now I am watching the Flower Power episode (episode 124) and Team Rocket were just coming in their disguises on some thing. and Ash is like 'i know those voices'
but in later episodes he doesn't recognize their voice i am just like why

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

I think Nintendo has made its calculations. This style:
Nintendo Boss: "pokemon gen 1=KIDS GO CRAZY and buy stuff
Gen2=same here still the same kids
Gen3=even same.
Gen4=okay things mighy not work long after this.. We need a new plan. LETS GET MORE KIDS!"
Nintendo employe:"but sir how are we going to keep new kids coming to our francise?"
Nintendo boss:"By reseting Ash! If kids loved him a decade ago as a loser they love him now and forever as a loser!"
Employe :"Great idea! And they will all buy the merchandice!"
*insert evil laughter here*

Is because ash has about a new pokedex per episode, so he needs to re-update the database xD

Well... what to say... he cannot remember even Pokémon that he owns so it shouldn't be surprising that he uses Pokédex to identify the Pokémon that some other characters used =)
I wouldn't be surprised if he actually used Pokédex to identify his Charizard.

That's ridiculous. He has those Pokemon back at Oak's Lab! Does the region's pokedex say new or specific information on every Pokemon? Maybe that's why he does it...But still, it's a slap to the face.
