    More than mistake, the most appropriate words are "wasted potential".

    Surely Palpitoad isn't treated very well (a trait shared by his pond friend, Stunfisk), but at least he is treated better than Kingler. He needs some development, but who knows if the writers will give him what he deserves. At this point, I wouldn't be really surprised if he becomes a mix between Kingler (powerful Water-type) and Croagunk (three moves syndrome and lack of evolution). Hopefully the second part doesn't happen.

    Palpitoad will get used more down the road. It's just that people need to understand that if Ash needs a water Pokemon he has another one as well as him, so there is no reason for a panic attack.

    I aslo think some are coming off a bit harsh to everyone. Not everyone will like all of Ash's Pokemon including me but you have to admit that his team needs work. I wouldn't have mind some changes done to his team as well as Palpitaod. But it's here so there is no use in arguing.

    Lol, a mistake? Only time Ash made a mistake at catching something was when he caught that rice ball back in Kanto! :P He ate it though so lets just forget about it.

    Anyways, Palpitoad's capture was intentional cause Ash noticed him being "strong" besides he's a cool Pokemon and its not like he's been mistreated. *looks at Kingler, Muk and 30 Tauros* Maybe he could appear more and learn some new moves though...

    The only capture I consider a mistake was his Tauros as he kept catching them by accident

    Well the writers did do that on purpose and its probably why he only uses one of them! I think... I can't really tell them apart.

    And ... are you writing about the powerhouse a.k.a. Charizard that costed Ash the Pokémon League?, the powerhouse a.k.a. Charizard that costed Ash the Johto League?, the powerhouse a.k.a. Charizard that couldn´t beat Brandon´s Dusclops that fell against Ash´s unevolved non-powerhouse Bulbasaur?
    In charizard's defence, it WAS Ash that had it use seismic toss (How da heck does one forget about an immunity?) and Charizard did weaken the thing down so bulbasaur could beat the thing. And Charizard did beat gary's starter (blastoise) and was used the day after. But i digress.

    I doubt it. I mean he is still a trainer and a trainer's goal is to catch pokemon.

    Also it is the same situation as krabby. In a way.

    No, he wasn't a mistake.
    Palpitoad has been catch because Ash was liking his shape, his power. Palpitoad is just un-used by Ash, it's tuff to him to train nine Pokemon at the shot !

    It wasn't a mistake to capture Palpitoad. But I do wish he got more screentime. But I have a feeling he's gonna shine in the league! And be featured a lot more in a filler season (if there's gonna be one) like Donphan!

    Oshawott is not to blame either, no matter you hate him or not. He had to earn it, he didn't become popular so easy.

    I can't you seriously with the swearing and loling. And while our opinion doesn't matter, we got the series off of being a fad back then.

    But again, the writers don't look at what other countries people think when making decisions.

    Some would turn it into a nostalgia run and recent characters will be left out. Besides, don't like something, why force yourself to stay. To some people's opinion, the anime is bland, but why you care and no story is going to have perfect plot or characters and you have to accept it it.

    On topic, Ash's job is to be a Pokemon Trainer and Palpatoad is no mistake.

    I know one pokemon that had to work for it IMO.

    Chimchar

    When he first appeared i was like GDit paul you release the starly but not him? Then I was like ditch that crappy monkey for magmortar already!, Then came the tag battle arc and I was like Oh THAT's why he kept it. Then under Ash I'm like quit being a mini pikachu and being uber powerful while stealing eveyone else's gym battles!. Then he evolved into Monferno and I'm like what a letdown. Then finally he evolved into infernape and my opinion was like OMG FINALLY! And then by the league battle he was my favorite.
