    Thank you. In reality none of Ash's Pokemon weren't a mistake. Maybe except for the use of Primeape.

    My ideal battle ever!

    It was more than Palpitoad. Atleast Palpitoad was used right after it was caught and it's staying with him. Primeape wasn't even given a shot.

    Yeah but they still pushed it off the air. So I think Palpitaod is still more useful.

    It's funny that Palpitoad has been used three times just over the course of Best Wishes (and will surely get some spot light at the league) while Muk has had two battles and one win in the entire series yet people complain about Palpitoad. Not that either should be complained about though, just saiyan.

    Poor Muk. he missed out his chance in the battle frontier against that girl Greta which a Haryima and Medicham.

    He would have easily defeat Haryiama and have a nice struggle against Medicham.

    It is like his defensive capabilities were gimmicks and nothing to be taken seriously in battles......

    Paplitoad is not gimmicky at all UNLESS he started using his tongue as a whip or something to defeat type disdvantages.

    Paplitoad is complained a lot because he had a lot of wasted potential that could have gotten to a great character with entertaining and bossy personality for the kids and great character development such as learning to work with others and his fatigue problem.
    Yeah..... I changed my signature....

    Primeape wasn't shown to be disobedient much in all fairness. In the first battle it had it fought, yes, didn't quite listen, but nothing akin to Charizard taking a nap, Mamoswine/Dragonite rampaging, or Excadrill not doing anything..

    One could even say that you may think so because how it got a bad stigma on the show, because each time they showed it, they showed him when he wasn't captured yet, beating up Charmander for instance.. Oh, and it gave Ash a blue eye, but that was out of affection if you read Ash's pokemon right: Ash returned it with a smile on his face, meaning that he got the gesture..

    I agree on the Muk part, but I don't really get the rest of it.. xD
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    I don't understand the "Palpitoad is funny therefore he should appear more" argument. Personally, I find Palpitoad to be really creepy; its facial expressions literally scare the bejesus out of me. Comedy is completely subjective, so I wouldn't use its "funniness" as a justification for its appearance in the anime. However, it's obvious that he needs more screen-time and development. No, not because he's "funny," but because all of Ash's Pokemon should get equal amounts of screen-time (unless their name is Oshawott).

    Ya well Mijumaru isn't funny either yet the writers keep spamming it. I personally think the way Palpitoad just brushes off attacks is pretty funny.

    Oshawott's not funny? That's news to me.

    I agree. Palpitoad is a reserve and Ash hasn't had any real reserves since Johto. This is the second time other than in OS/IS Ash has catched extra pokemon while having six. The writers haven't known what to do about reserves for a long time. Maybe it would have been best if the writers just letted him kept six Pokemon and catch more Pokemon after the league so that threads like this won't take place.

    Well as I said, it's completely subjective. Even if some people don't think he's funny, there are other things he excels at, like being cute. That's more than enough to keep him on people's minds. But unfortunately, our friend Palpitoad doesn't have any other redeeming qualities aside from being a good battler. Then again, since he rarely appears, it's hard to say whether his victories have been deserved or if they've all been flukes. I'll let people come up with their own conclusions, as this is open to interpretation.

    And oops, it seems I've gone around the main question ŕ la Romney. I'll just say that while Palpitoad hasn't been active, I wouldn't say that his capture was a mistake. There could be tons of reasons why the writers wanted Ash to capture him, so we'll just have to wait and see.

    No, Palpitoad's capture is not a mistake, no capture is, I enjoy seeing Ash with Palpitoad and the other pokemon thank you very much.

    If catching Palpitoab is a mistake then catching a Leavanny & Krookodile was a Mistake too !
