Thank you for answering my question fortyseven!
If a Mew can't learn to love itself, how can it love at all?
But, more importantly, how was it that the cat pokémon who hung out with the two bad guys was the only one that could speak?
It self taught itself to read and talk. Something to do with lusting after a female cat pokemon. It felt very much like a Great Gatsby episode, just with Hollywood puns and satire inserted into the narrative. But that was a much later episode. Which made no sense because I always thought pokemon had no gender except for those two rodent pokemon....
You know, I didn't pay a lot of attention to the mechanics and rules of the pokemon show very much, I just watched it for Brock, Jessie, James, and the talking cat pokemon. Why doesn't the Pikachu get in a pokeball again?
Huh, interesting, so it's similar to raising that fish pokemon that turns into a badass sea dragon pokemon, albeit no reproduction via egg and this really isn't a very good comparison.
