017: Pidgeotto by Rikkoshaye 017: Pidgeotto by Rikkoshaye
I never noticed it until later, but does anyone else think it odd that one of the first Pokemon Ash catches in the TV show is a Pidgeotto? I mean, he's so bad at catching Pokemon anyway, how'd he get lucky enough to get one of these!?

This Pidgeotto is looking off at a sunrise, maybe the same Pidgey from before? Not much else to say about this one in particular.... she looks kind of sad. (I decided it was a she!)

Edit: Didn't realize that the lighter tail feathers were slightly more yellow then the cream color of the body, so I fixed it. :)

How pretty, poor Pidgeotto.
Personally I put Ash's luck down to a level of my own...
Take SS Suicune, 11 ultra balls, 8 greatballs and umpteen misc' balls later and I had caught it, it was asleep down to about 3% health, and in a fit of pissed on trainerisms I lob a lure ball at it, you know, that little greenish ball that has been sitting there since you stopped fishing before the Elite Four? And... caught it.
I'd forgotten it was a damn water pokemon X_x and there I was about to give up.
Stupid+luck=caught me a PKMN =P
And that's how I see Ash doin' things XD

Haha, well I guess in the end all that matters is that you (and Ash) are able to catch something eventually, hehe. I'm going to remember the lure ball trick for when I run into suicune though! :)

Dumb luck for dumb trainers *facepalms* ah well, whatever works.
Yeah, do so, it might save you some time!

Actually Caterpie was Ash's first catch. He caught Pidgeotto in the next episode :D

That's why I said "one of the first," hehe. This is kind of ironic because someone else on another art website I post to said the exact same thing you did. :o

Definitely the best bird line of the bunch, I think. :D

Well ash is quite the awful pokemon trainer but I guess he manages to get random strokes of skill or dumb luck, I mean he also somehow managed to catch a whole stampede of Tauros.

That's very true. And Tauros are hard to catch! I guess even idiots can get lucky.
