“Super-effective?” Well, that doesn’t sound like it hurts very much. Overall, the attacks in the Pokémon games haven’t ever really felt dangerous. You’ll re-think that after watching this video.

This Pikachu vs. Bulbasaur video comes via Filipe Costa, who’s given Mario the same treatment. Watching Pikachu dodge attacks adds a tension to that the typical pocket monster battle, since it seems like getting nailed by one of those attacks would really mess him up. We never knew how much danger you were actually in. A hearty salute to you, tiny mutant freak gladiators.
