Pokémon Travel: Should Goh Catch Legendary Pokémon?

In Pokémon Journeys, Goh may want to catch them all, but, for a 10-year-old, catching Legendary Pokémon might not be the best idea.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Season 1, Part 4 Episode 4, Episode 9 and Episode 10 of Pokémon Journeys: The Series, “A Crackling Raid Battle!”, “Sword and Shield … Legends Awaken! ” And “Get More Than You Fought For!” Now streaming on Netflix.

In part 4 of Pokémon Travel, Ash and Goh encounter more Legendary Pokémon than ever. Goh’s goal is to catch them all, so inevitably, he will come across many more extremely powerful and rare Legendary Pokémon.

However, these many of these Pokémon are important to the ecosystems and well-being of the Pokémon universe. Legendaries often join the team of a coach they consider worthy, but is it still okay for him to catch them?

In Part 4 Episode 4 of Pokémon Travel, Ash and Goh raid Team Rocket against a Zapdos. This is the first instance we have of Goh actively trying to catch a Legendary Pokémon, however Zapdos breaks free and flies off before he can catch it. Many Legendary Pokémon are related to weather phenomena, including Zapdos. During Part 4 Episode 4, Zapdos was resting at the Power Plant after having produced electrical storms over Vermilion Harbor.

It’s unclear if Goh will meet Zapdos again, but if he does, it seems likely that he will catch him solely by his Pokédex entry and then immediately release him. Although Zapdos is not as important to the environment as, say, Groudon or Kyogre, producing thunderstorms and electricity still serves a purpose, and Zapdos may be necessary for such phenomena to be fully functional.

Part 4 of Pokémon Travel it also involves a mini-arc running through the Sword and shield plot of the games. In the final episode of the arc, Ash and Goh confront the legendary Pokémon Eternatus. Like in games, Trainers need to borrow the power of the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta to stop it. However, the boys not only defeat the Pokémon: Goh and Ash throw a giant Pokéball and manage to catch Eternatus, registering it in Goh’s Pokédex.

Unfortunately for Eternatus, he needs to be eternally asleep for the Galar region to function. Eternatus is the power source needed for Dynamax and Gigantamax, and when awake, its powers leak uncontrollably, causing Pokémon throughout the region to randomly activate with Dynamax. Therefore, Goh cannot reasonably use this Pokémon in battle. At the same time, releasing Eternatus into the wild would again cause massive chaos. So the only solution is to keep it under lock and key under Professor Magnolia’s care. However, being trapped in a Pokéball for the rest of eternity is a pretty sad existence, so perhaps in the future Ash and Goh can find a better way for Eternatus to continue living.

The last Legendary Pokémon that Ash and Goh encountered in Part 4 was none other than Mewtwo. Naturally, Mewtwo is too powerful for Ash and Goh, but the two trainers managed to hold their own in the battle against the Pokémon. At first glance, it might appear that Mewtwo is a legendary at stake. What purpose does Mewtwo serve now that it is no longer under the control of Team Rocket and Giovanni?

But, when Ash and Goh arrive on the island of Mewtwo, they discover a shy gang of Pokémon, including Mareep, Buneary, Skitty, Skiddo, Mudbray, and Patrat. This may seem like a random set of Pokémon, but they all refer to animals that are commonly used for cloning research. Mewtwo has come to realize that his raison d’être is to help Pokémon like these that have been abused by humans and create a human-free environment for them. Once Ash and Goh realize this and are satisfied with their battle, they leave. Since Mewtwo is related to Mew, it is possible that the boys will accidentally run into Mewtwo again on their journey, however with the amount of responsibility Mewtwo now has, it seems unlikely that Goh would want to keep the Pokémon.

Trainers who own Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are not a total anomaly. Ash had many infamous encounters during the Diamond and pearl series with trainers like Tobias, who owned a Darkrai and Latios, and a nurse Joy who owned a Latias. In an earlier episode of Pokémon Travel two Celebi, one regular and one Shiny which refers to the Size movie, appeared briefly, showing that, at least for some of the Legendaries, more than one of them exists in the universe.

It’s quite possible that Goh could catch and hold onto a Legendary or Mythical Pokemon eventually, especially if he realizes there are enough of them and he’s not terribly affecting any sort of balance. Most Legendary Pokémon do not belong in the hands of a child, however, like Ash, Goh is kind-hearted and can be trusted to release a being that is too powerful for him or entrust it to another. person, just like him. has done with Eternatus.
