Ash From Pokemon Sets A New Strength Record 

Earlier in the new Pokemon TV anime series, Pokemon: Sun & Moon, Ash was shown as a wimp. He's always been superhuman strong, so this depiction was a break from tradition. Good news! The most recent episode is a return to form. Herculean Ash is back and stronger than ever.

Over the years, the Pokemon anime has shown Ash pick up an array of hefty Pocket Monsters. Those characters look heavy, but unless you were familiar with the Pokedex, the most recent feat probably won't appear impressive.

Ash is holding Cosmoem, a small Pokemon, with ease.

No big deal, right?

Well, Cosmoem weighs 999.9kg, making this the heaviest Pokemon Ash has ever lifted.

Look how easily he does it! To put this in context, Cosmoem weighs as much as Celesteela, so it'd be like Ash is holding that massive Pokemon no sweat.

Obviously, this isn't to scale. Celesteela is 9.2m tall.

Wait a minute... Why couldn't he move Snorlax back in the day?

But Ash isn't the only one with incredible strength.


I'm beginning to think that Pokemon isn't very realistic.


    Hmm. Maybe cosmog/cosmoem has some form of anti gravity ability that allows it to appear to weigh less? Eh.
