Why is Satoshi/Ash so inept compared to Red?

It is a gross misconception that they are intended to be the same character in different incarnations. In fact, Red and Ash are brothers. Red is older by a couple of years - so he started his Pokemon journey around the time of the game’s release, and Ash is the younger brother who started his journey around the time of the Anime’s release.
Where Red took down all of Team Rocket, the most influential crime syndicate in his country, Ash has a constant rivalry with two completely inept members of the organization that don't apparently take any part in the real endeavors of Team Rocket.

Red is a Pokemon Master. He defeated the Elite Four, even uncovering a lot of their double standards as Team Rocket members.
Ash has not defeated one league yet.

The reason for Ash’s incompetence is that he has some learning difficulties/mental retardation. However, he looks up to Red completely and is living his life trying to be just like his big brother and idol.

This is why Gary/Green has no interest in Ash whatsoever. He had his fight with Red, and now occasionally meets Ash along his journey, essentially to check up on him.
This is why Brock and Misty, two Gym Leaders, who have an important job to do in their own towns abandoned their posts to travel with Ash. Red had told them about his brother, and they recognized him, and traveled with him to look out for him and keep him relatively out of trouble when Red couldn’t.

manmade pokemon exist, in multiple forms... so it's possible clefairy was created as the cover story. but then... there are canon ancient civs that have had some rather advanced poke-tech... what if man fought man, created pokemon for use in war? the legendaries were bred in test tubes and released as ultimate weapons, with more and more species coming into existence over the centuries. eventually, humanity became almost symbiotic with pokemon, religion formed and blossomed.

Yeah, so my title pretty much says it all; I need pokemon that I can't find, or have trouble finding. Are there any charitable folk in this part of the woods?
I play pokemon OR, and I have around a dozen fully EV trained pokemon that I like very much, but many of them aren't strong enough for regular battlespot rated online play (like Golem, Exeggutor, Raichu, etc). I have a decent Gengar, not perfect IVs, but close enough. All my other decent pokemon are legendaries which are banned from the battlespot rated fights (Rayquaza, Ho-Oh, Mew, etc), but I was able to use during the tournament before the Kanto Classic tournament.
What I be lookin' for are the following:
-Zapdos/Articuno (preferally zapdos)
-Chansey (or the wierd baby version, can't remember it's name)

Nothing else comes to mind as of now, though that could be due to my state of heavy intoxication (methadone, clonazepam, gabapentin, dxm, weed, etc). Basically, any 1st or 2nd gen. pokemon who can dance with the big boys lol

Thank you for reading my very self-centered post. I hope I don't get shat on too viciously for begging. I don't know much about trading using those codes, seeing as I've only ever used wondertrade and the global trade thing. Do you need my pokemon ID No.? Mine is 62898. It's probably not that though, I have vague memories of seeing longer number sequences with dashes into between clusters of numbers and maybe capital letters, I don't know haha! Please help me.

I finally got around to getting a 3DS, and I was going to transfer some of my old pokemon forward. Apparently, whenever they shut off the servers for Gen V, a togekiss that was on my main team that I ran through HeartGold with was in the dreamworld. Is there not anyway to retrieve it? This is a major bummer.

Interesting. I'm not opposed to this. Hopefully it's been in development for a while since all the yearly releases have been relatively incremental. Give it a Q4 release date or even just 2017 would freshen the series up quit nicely since absence makes the heart grow fonder or whatever.

Not even a quantifiable amount of concept. No indication of region base, no mons, nada. They might as well just rushed in at the last 5 seconds and been like "Oh hay new pokemanz 2016".

You wouldn't, and that's not what was done. They are printed images, not actual cards.

Not that any one of those cards would be worth hundreds of dollars anyway. Pokemon cards are less valuable than many people think.

So they're not sealed, laminated, anything else? Is it at least photostock grade paper or better quality? Otherwise it sounds like a waste of cash, and a better option to just make your own(if you can find a high quality scan.

Pokemon Brown (a hack of red) is great. It has new maps, and pokemon (that you'd actually want to use) from later generations (electivire, magmortar, gliscor, yanmega, among others iirc).

Pokemon Sienna (a hack of ruby) was okay, but I didn't finish it, and I can't remember why. (I fired up my emulator and loaded my save state from 5 years ago, and I have 7 badges. I don't know why I didn't finish. Maybe I didn't know where to go next? Maybe the game wasn't finished yet?) Anyways, it has brand new pokemon. Some of the graphics look rough. I recall really liking my water-type starter, an elephant. It seemed like a very natural pokemon, and it somewhat puzzles me that the only elephant pokemon that Gamefreak has made so far is phanpy and donphan. I mean, an elephant has a trunk that's just screaming to have water shot out of it by a water type!

FireRed Omega was the greatest rom hack I've played. The same exact base game as FireRed, bu many different things were overhauled in amazing ways, such as trade-evolutions becoming later-level evolutions or stone evolutions, movesets changed, stats changed, starters are different, routes have 4X the variety of wild pokemon and towns have small patches of grass with different pokemon, gym leaders all have 6 pokemon which may or may not all be their type-specific, trainers (especially gym leaders) abuse the shit out of items/status moves, all legendaries can be encountered/caught, all starters are given to you by random NPCs throughout your journey so you don't miss out on any of them...
all in all a supreme rom hack. Just make sure if you're using VBA that you change your save type to 128k flash and that your game system is checked as GBA so you can use the in-game save, or else when you beat the elite 4 for the first time you will never be able to get back to your saved game.

I think the Drayano rom hacks are my favorites. He didn't much other than revamp difficulty and make it so trade-mons would evolve regularly. Nuzlocke on high difficulty settings is a blast every time.

After seeing this post, I looked at Sienna and saw there were existing as well as fanmade new pokemon, so I downloaded it. After wasting 5 or so hours playing it and having a blast, I learned the game is unfinished after the 7 gym. That's probably why you stopped.

Game balance was not a thing during gen 1. Especially not for psychic types. A psychic/water already existed too. I think they just came up with cool ideas and went with it as long as it wasn't too broken.

I think water has always been the most common type and has also always been a strong type.

If they'd cared about balance ghost would have worked and there'd be bug types with good bug moves that had useable stats and not poison typing.

So I haven't followed the Pokemon TV series since I think Johto, so excuse some ignorance. But how much time has passed since the start of the series?

I recently was on a wiki page showing that there's nearing almost a thousand episodes and specials total. I recall episodes typically being at least a days time in passage. I recall some episodes having more time between them. But that's still at least a two and a half years time as a base number.
Now how god damn old is Ash still?
