Do you wanna waste 20 minutes watching pikachu take a pikapoo? I didn't think so-

EDIT: Dude, toilets ARE NOT electric and ran by motors.

Do you ever see ANYONE on the toilet in ANY media (cartoon, book, game) used for anything except comedy? Nope? There's your answer

Lol...? Yeah like the others have said, it is indeed quite pointless. I remember this exact same question being asked for Harry Potter as well. Oo

Well they are using the bathroom. Like when sleeping in the Pokemon Center but not in the series in the Pokemon World.

Is Pokémon the only show you watch or something? I mean they probably do say stuff like that but for comedic purposes.

Seriously they don't even go to the bathroom in things that attempt to make an accurate portrayal of Earth, and Pokémon's portrayal is far from accurate. I mean shinigamis and magic killing books aren't exactly realistic either, but other than those, the world itself is very realistic... just no bathrooms.

It's because it has already been answered :3

If there ever was a bathroom scene though, it would move the plot along sort of thing (one example is The Mummy 2).

That's sounds way too ridiculous. Not seeing an anime character... well... "furnishing" himself, doesn't mean that he/she doesn't do so at all. After all, Ash can't be a pokemon master, if he's a dirty twerp. We can only guess that humans and pokemon in the anime take a bath and go to the toilet in a Pokemon Center, or... in the nature...

Maybe now we know why he's never gonna be a master then...

I don't think little kids would appreciate the anime showing how Pokemon go to the bathroom.

It's not good for your hygiene, y'know.

Well, I think they do. I'm with a lot of you on that it'd be a waste of time for it to be shown.

Well, they say in one episode something about manure from a Pokémon but that was only in the English version. In the Japanese version it wasn't feces at all.

But, obviously, since Pokémon are alive, they need to go to the bathroom. It's really common sense. .

Is was an ammonite in the Japanese version; it was just a very common fossil that Gary mistook for something spectacular.

It's a question posted on the forum. The only one that exists here, my friend.

Ok. So let's pretend Ash had to go to the restroom in route 230.

Ash: Agh. I go to go! NOW!
Dawn: Where?
Ash: *runs off*
Ash gets diarrhea
Dawn: I need to go...
...
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!

HOLY WAFFLES. Bad thoughts :(

Anyways, you get my point? Little children don't like to watch people go potty.
