    Today is the day, Theorists! The day that I, once and for all, prove that Ash's Pikachu is WEAK! That's right! There is no Level 100 here. Throughout the anime, Pikachu has proved to not be as strong of a contender as we were led to believe. Let's get into the evidence!

    1. Morgan_Fucking_Freeman

      Maybe Snivey got a super *duper* critical hit.

    2. Hggdfs*hufeshgyersfes Gfatyshggdsyfueuyfw

      You are are wrong about pikachu level

    3. SWAMPuS🏳️‍🌈

      Actually, grass types are stronger against electric types

    4. V Kidz Gamez

      To much rare candys

    5. Jayman 64

      Matpat thinks he owns Nintendo and believes his words are gospel

    6. Onion

      I think one thing is missed here: Snivy can't actually learn leaf tornado until level 16, meaning that Snivy here is at least level 16 during the fight. This might be able to change up the results a bit maybe?

    7. Alex Halász

      Hate to say that MatPat spoilt the big reveal at 7:39.

    8. Ariel Harloff

      This episode felt really short. I mean good to know but eh I feel like something was missing here

    9. Zavier Raighne Cena

      Pickchu is dumb

    10. ler2013 “Ler2013”

      Haha red laughing in the background

    11. Lopy 64

      Thanks for putting so much dedication into your videos! It's not every day you'll find a channel this good.

    12. Jeremy May

      You just had to put "Nice" next to Pikachu's attack hahahaha

    13. Araz393 #yeterartik ☑️

      Theory: Pikachu may not be strong, but ash’s tactics makes him be. like in raichu vs pikachu ash tells pikachu to stand on his iron tail and on pokemon sun and moon he says use quick attack then iron tail to attack more stronger, so thats why we think pikachu is so powerful. Hes not, the tactics ash uses are fooling us thats why we think pikachu is so much powerful.

      Thank you scott

      Pokemon theory: The Ultra Space Wilds and Ultra Ruin are on the same planet: Well, both of them have reversed music with strange sounds, both are inhabited with Pokemon found in on PokeEarth. Since this Pokemon world is in the future, the people of this parallel PokeEarth might have found a piece of uninhabited land. Then, just incase people would want legendaries and didn't want to endanger the planet, they decided to clone legendaries to go in the Ultra Space Wilds along with normal pokemon. Now people can catch legendaries without the fuss of: "where is Palkia? Space is being destroyed" or "We need Necrozma to bring light to Ultra Megalopolis but a parallel 10 year old caught him!" and "Tapu Koko! The island is being terrorised by a guzzlord! Oh wait, he's with an 11 year old who came from a parallel universe". But how did they create the guzzlords and why is the Ultra Space Wilds not polluted yet. Well, I think that people experimented with Pokemon and eventually created the first guzzlord. He was to big so they let him loose. And then more guzzlords got created and they destroyed Alola. And the reason why they aren't terrorising other places is due to the fact that they are to big to swim.

    16. Tony2Truuu TV

      Has MattPat done a theory on the movement of time in the Pokémon universe. Because ash has been 10yo for almost 30yrs😅

    17. LPP

      Team Rocked had no idea how Pikachu is weak.

    18. Senku Senju

      How strong is hero brine?

    19. fluttershy thecutest

      What if team rocket knows about this and they aren't after pikachu at all,they follow ash so they can tell his dad how he's doing

    20. Kushal Koujalagi

      Wait why isn't he doing the rest of unova, kalos, alola, and pokemon journeys?

    21. OxProxxy

      Pikachu's level is actually revealed at 7:40 into the video. file:///Users/birb/Pictures/Photos%20Library.photoslibrary/originals/E/EAED7355-2DB1-41A7-AA7D-F80F670CA533.png

    22. Diana Anaid

      This guy has the most dumb mind and voice. Thank god he is fake

    23. Diana Anaid


    24. MirainoHikari

      Now, next step, what level is Pikachu when Satoshi (Ash) finally get a job in the Galar arc after finally going to school in the Alola arc.

    25. Manta - Edits

      It’s been years since I watched Pokémon but the Pokémon advanced op is the best Pokémon intro ngl

    26. Kai Pollard

      I mean thats just snivy part 3 do the other seasons d:

    27. Gerald Bantolino

      Hey! GT Team @7:40 you just guys revealed the level before the big reveal :D

    28. Bono

      Game theory? I thought it was film?!

    29. dragonhold4

      [Rebuttle] If Ash's pokemon fights so few battles, how would any of them evolve? The level scaling has to be different for the show.

    30. Thien Huong

      OK but check your Netflix-

    31. Drahcir

      Ok so you did all the on-screen battles. What about all the battles that are just mentioned? Or any other xp gaining activities they take part in.

    32. PrinceFatman


    33. Richard Mazzocco Jr

      You guys should do a theory on how quickly squirtle would turn into a rasin if he sprayed the amount of water they show him using with water gun lol.

    34. Oskar Lee

      Theory idea doom eternal how strong is the doom slayer

    35. Frankazm

      new channel idea for you fill out the last one bug theory

    36. Robert Ågren

      You forgot "Charge"

    37. Andrés Cuadra


    38. Spewku

      The biggest, if not the only, piece of evidence people have for Ash's Pikachu resetting is the fight with Snivy. Personally, I don't think Pikachu got reset because all we got is this piece of evidence. Others in the comments also mentioned maybe Pikachu wasn't on full health during the fight and I have to heavily agree that it could be a possibility. I mean c'mon, Ash is a bit dumb. Also, I don't think the creators and directors of the show intended that, if they did there would be more things pointing to that claim. In reality, the fight was probably just a plot device to get the story moving along

    39. Vlog Dog

      Plz continue this until Pokémon journeys I really want to know what his final level is

    40. Lolly Almaguer


    41. Matthew Sosa

      Theory: pac man and Kirby are the same species, think about it, never gets full,can eat anything

    42. Aaralyn Reyes

      What if there's a multiverse in Pokemon for Ash

    43. Adrianna Every day

      m. k mm mm

    44. Diamond Charmander

      At one point I thought that pikachu had his level reset anytime that he goes to a new region by plane because twice that it’s happened he got sick and lost the first gym battle.

    45. Girlie1654

      Matpat you should do a Pokémon video finding out what is underneath mimikyu , team rockets Pokémon they later catch A little later of the anime. Try and find out what is under his mask

    46. Ruben Rodrigo

      Sad I could see the final pikachu lvl at minute 7:40 XD

    47. asmnazimus sakib

      Can you tell about my little pony

    48. Jason Bong

      Trade bouns exp is a thing 9:56

    49. GrimDrago

      This doesn't even mention Zekrom attacking Pikachu

    50. serry ciok

      watch, but I'm stilll intrigued. Dont think I could watch all seasons though. You madman

    51. Anthony Robert

      Honestly just fantastic work

    52. Some Dude Named Hank :p (:l)

      Pikachu : Beats god Also Pikachu Gets Beaten By A SNIVY B R U H

      1. serry ciok

        I always thought pikachu was so over rated my EMPOLEON is where its at

    53. Matt Jobson

      7:40 Spoiles the total level

    54. Christopher Finnerty

      I sincerely doubt this makes a difference in the end, but I feel its worth pointing out that Snivy learns leaf tornado at level 16 in black and white, and it is not listed as an egg move. So that Snivy was probably level 16. Pikachu definitely still should have crushed it though.

    55. Jordan Meeker

      May I just add that according to pokemon during the time of unova sniveling would have to be at least level 16 to know leaf tornado. Even still makes no sense for a level 16 snivy to beat a Pikachu that is in the 60s.

    56. Sleepy Ash

      Jessie MatPat gonna make me act up 🥵 I love your videos!

    57. ThatOneOshawott

      Relived Oshawott noises

    58. Samina Riaz

      What about the other regions maybe by pokemon journeys he is level 100

    59. Teclar88

      while it whas a fun theori video, (as they often are), I feal its a bit sad that the fact that the suposed lvl 5 snivy somehow knows the lvl 16 move leaf tornado, wich even if ignoring the lvl's as a ting, should stil not be a move a fresh "lvl 5" snivy should know (but more a move they learn as they start mastering there power/abilities) is never brought up on this video. The fact that it knows this move strikes me as there being someting odd about that snivy's strenght (or someone joust lying about its actual strenght).

    60. Ryder Robin

      Can you please answer this question and one of your videos how durable is Mario.

    61. GalaxyGaming

      Do the calculations for the kalos region to

    62. beambullseye

      I have a theory that can explain a little bit of this, one that I've had for a very very long time. Pokemon the show is a live action show in the pokemon universe. That's why the canon is a little off, why certain techniques happen that don't actually work, why team rockets constantly around and blasting off, and why they stopped eating pokemon. There are plenty of other small details that make it feel more like a show for kids in a world with actual pokemon, but I'll leave that for you to piece together.

    63. Imaginternet Gaming

      I kinda wanna see what level pikachu is at kalos, alola and maybe even galar

    64. Chizzify

      Snivy used "anime logic attack"

    65. Skadoosh Playz

      Two words for everything, ANIME LOGIC

    66. Howler's Domain

      Got a question…how strong is the average human in pokemon? Cause we see team rocket get thrown into the air but land and only with minor injuries, plus there’s that scene of ash throwing a big log, not to mention him holding different Pokémon that are supposed to weigh a lot

    67. GerwantPlayGames

      "No person on earth is gonna take such a dumb question so seriously" - Have you heard of people who wonder "Is the Earth flat?" ?

    68. for the love of DOG

      I always thought pikachu was so over rated my EMPOLEON is where its at

    69. Viktor Kostic

      mattpat: that´s just a theory, a ga... high boi: a gay theory

    70. JohnPaul Lacierda


    71. Darkboi

      day 23 of asking matpat to do a terraria calamity theory

    72. ColaSpxce

      GAME THEORY can you make a video on roblox p

    73. Joshua Hostetter

      The level of pikachu actually changes back to 5 or 1 when ash goes to a new island

    74. Dark Madbat

      But what if it turns out Pikachu was traded to Oak?

    75. GRDOESYT 2020

      The Snivy user used max stats cheat

    76. Taizo Michael

      Yeah, but... What level are they now?

    77. Cesilee Mokry

      Is Ash immortal? Every movie and every time he dies, he just comes back randomly, I’m just curious if it’s a theory worth discussing😁

    78. Toast

      Can we just appreciate how much time this much take

    79. J Gamer

      What if ash had xp share.

    80. Linda Mirinda


    81. Darlemonte

      Him defeating TR does count though. Others pokemon have legit evolved from the exp after helping ash defeat TR

    82. Henry Knack

      i was 2 off i thought it was 63

    83. Tim L

      So... Pikachu is a noob...

    84. Stefan Köhn

      So funny that he shows the lvl at the 7:39 min mark

    85. Wesley Nichols

      Team Theorist: The next Pokemon villain team. Makes you question your existence.

    86. AMDspeaks

      matt fits so perfect with Jessie i Don't know why....

    87. minij hooi

      To be fair he loses because Pikachu was sick and was unable to attack. And ash kept shouting out stupid moves so I blame Ash for the loss.

    88. ActionBastard

      With this it kind of gives credence to the theory that Ash died during the spearow attack in the first couple episodes with his DMT making an entire life occur in a few moments.

    89. Arby Matignas

      In kanto region in game you will have to fight ash with level 80 pikachu.. if we will base it from game he should be around 100 by now

      1. Myst Blitz

        On route 29? If so thats red not ash.

    90. Slashageee

      7:40 you can see the total lvl e

      1. unknown gaming

        I saw that too

      2. minij hooi

        The last composer selectively knot because ping phylogentically answer until a wonderful yard. true, yellow random

    91. Dragon Knight22

      I want to know in Pokemon I chose you what was the dream with no Pokemon was about?

    92. Nils Lanthemann

      This theory has so many holed it's not even enough to be a thesis

    93. Koichi

      It's just my phone or the audio from the anime in this video is muted

    94. Isabela Louise Ang

      1\|1 ( 3 \|/ 017,1< /|\ @ -1-17 @ -1- See you next video matpat I made this language btw

    95. Skylar Gray

      But he only calculated up until Black and White???

    96. Skylar Gray

      7:30 Love what he did there lol

    97. iceyrose

      I know I'm late but congrats on finishing your amazing Matpatt

      1. Youtube is Garbage (Nom)


    98. Andy Lienesch

      I have a pokemon sun and moon anime question, how did ash get to the alternate world with guzzlord in it? He was battling tapu koko, then got teleported there. Also on a non pokemon related note: did you hear about doki doki literature club plus? I'm wondering if there will be any more lore hints about their other game.

    99. UniQue is sad

      Matpat fem boy 😳

    100. Alex Chappell

      Why tf are there like 500000 episodes of Pokémon?
