Juicyjewsss

When you go for the boss right away before grinding your character


crossleingod

When you challenge Brock with only a Charmander


beefsupr3m3

When I was a kid on my first couple play Throughs I didn’t know about Mankey In the victory Road patch so I either had to over level my Pidgey and Charmander. Or grind up a Butterfree. Didn’t know there was a super easy way through for years lol


scott195

Honestly i think that's just yellow. I don't think blue and red had the mankee. Red and blue were tough with charmander.


beefsupr3m3

If that’s true it makes me feel a lot better. I played all the versions And have a hard time differentiating between the three in my mind


arscis

Bro I just rammed my Pikachu into the Geodude over and over. Lvl 22 pikachu after the first gym.


Ryan-the-lion

That's exactly what I did lmao, didn't know there was an easier way


axxionkamen

Red and blue had Nidoran which could learn double kick though lol.


ApexDamien

Level a nidoran to 43 and learn double kick then fight Brock lol. This is the way.


axxionkamen

This is the way. Seriously am I thinking Pokémon yellow hmm. I did own all of them but yellow was my first and played that most lol


pm_me_ur_cats_kitten

Wasn't Nidoran available that learns double kick as well?


runs_and_chews_gum

This is what I was gonna comment as well but it looks like it only learned double kick at lvl 12 in Y. It's lvl 43 in RBG apparently.


illessen

I had this exact conversation with a friend a few days ago. Sadly in red/blue nidoran doesn’t learn double kick until 43. I could have sworn it was the case too.


Gh0st1nTh3Syst3m

Wait, you guys are getting mankeys?


teh_longinator

It's okay. Later games give Charmander Metal Claw so you can ezpz Brock.


jau682

I swear the did that intentionally since Charizard is so popular. They had to let new kids play their favorite to beat the first gym and get them hooked.


Jusdoc

I mean that's honestly good game design. All 3 starters should be able to beat the first gym relatively easily, since the tutorial only REALLY ends after that point.

DigNitty

How do you throw a punch for the first time five times? I agree with though, somehow he DID THAT


Flomo420

> How do you throw a punch for the first time five times? you don't improve over the first one


BallComprehensive737

And it's your first rpg so your only save point is right before that first punch.


petervaz

And the cutscene is unskippable.


null-or-undefined

first time getting to mike tyson on punch out


Firethorn101

Me vs. the troll 8 seconds into Skyrim.


Foxy_grandpa963

Ogdo bogdo fight be like


VicSantinel1

After the second punch that didn’t even phase him I would’ve ran as fast as I could


TheAsianTroll

If I've learned anything from this subreddit, it's that if the guy you're about to fight takes your hardest punch and just looks back at you, you apologize and back off.


fredandlunchbox

There’s no apologizing after someone eats your hardest punch. You run.


doopie

The punching contest failed, now it's a running contest.


HipHopGrandpa

Best sentence I’ve read all night.


CERETOSS

You would be surprised what an apology and a willingness to take your hit can do...


deezx1010

You think you can out run a man who eats your punches? That's doesn't feel egotistical?


MaterializedLosses

I mean, I don't think there's a correlation between ability to eat punches and speed. Also, what else are you gonna do? Stay and get your ass beat?


deezx1010

That's fair. I think at that point I figure this man is about that action. Every bit of it. Kick his balls and then run I think


MaterializedLosses

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Imagine the terror if that doesn't work and he just grabs your leg lol. Seems like the type of dude that would hammer throw you and team rocket your ass.


droidman5910

Or grabs your foot in his anus


deezx1010

This is the scariest answer lmao. I'm there hopping around while he shatters my foot with his butt power


Stupeflys

He smokes so..


4ss0

Ok, you take my up vote, now leave.

GammaBrass

I have seen this video with sound. It's in Japan, and the little dude is trying to bully the big guy. Not sure why he thought he could get away with it, but he probably never considered the dude would fight back. Most people in Japan wouldn't.


pierreblue

His brain must have been like this next punch will do it for sure


kiTtY9837

I think it's because he moved his head with the punch sorta


Rattlingplates

No, he just didn’t want to take the hit in the face. That guy punching is weak as fuck.


Tcowstuff

That and he needs to aim for the lower jaw, that’s the spot that causes knockouts.


Rattlingplates

He ain’t knocking anyone out


Reain

Hence the phrase, "rolling with the punches."


PlasmaticPi

Its not so much about the punch as how the guy defends. He turns his head each time so the fist hits the back and side, which hurts but won't generally knock you out from what I've seen and experienced. What you wanna hit is the chin apparently, which is what got hit when the other guy went down, and you can see in most videos where the guy goes down instantly after one punch on here. I don't know why it works, but it does. Edit: This can also be seen in a lot of boxing movies where the coach often tells the fighter to keep their head down, which is a defensive measure to protect their chin.


VicSantinel1

Either way, after two hits doing nothing what else would you expect other than getting knocked the fuck out either because you’re weak or he knows what he’s doing


PlasmaticPi

True


ThatLeetGuy

There is a specific nerve that runs along your jaw that essentially causes your brain to temporarily shut down if it gets hit just right.


[deleted]

Dude knew what he was doing tucking his head like that to not get hit where it would hurt.


ForlornedLastDino

When they guy starts meeting your punch with their head to avoid you hitting their knockout zone, you know you made a mistake and got yourself a fighter.


AutoManoPeeing

I wouldn't have punched him in the first place...? Edit:. I'm sorry for suggesting you shouldn't randomly punch someone for no reason.


Yyes85

I love that he also first takes a quick smoke before he KOs


sm12511

The ol' "puff n' pound" technique. Takes years to master.

The kid is punching like I punch when I'm dreaming


soccrstar

>The kid is punching like I punch when I'm dreaming You're giving the kid way too much credit


Alphabadg3r

Oh i hate those dreams. Trying to hit something as hard as you can, trying to swing a bat at something with all your force and it decelerates as it approaches. I hate those blue balling dreams so much


I_Eat_Pumpkin24

Always feels like I'm punching underwater, please tell me that's not how Id actually punch... If I punch like that im fucked if I ever get in a fight.


Eren_Gag-Her

I thought i was the only one who had dreams like this


I_Eat_Pumpkin24

Me too


Ooops-I-snooops

Another one here.


CaBBaGe_isLaND

Same.


Plopplopsploosh

If you don’t even know what it feels like to throw a punch, you’re fucked if you ever get in a fight with someone who does. It’s a coin toss if you get in a fight with someone else who doesn’t.


Whind_Soull

Or when it's a gun, but it has like a 100-pound trigger pull.


Auraknight98

Or you can shoot anywhere except the target.


Sproose_Moose

Especially when you wake up and your arms are swinging. Or your legs kick. I have vivid dreams!


Positive-Beat-872

I’ve kicked myself out of the bed dreaming I was swinging over a fence. And once I kicked the wall and broke my foot.


v33n33m

I boxed way back when and I have the same problem when punching people in dreams


guesswhodat

Dude rolled with the punches well but other dude should have adjusted and thrown the left hook.


Puzzleheaded_Lake211

The other dude has never fought befor lol


WeAreGesalt

In my head I'm the guy on the left, in reality I'm the guy on the right

Cynically_Optomistic

I work with a Neuro Radiologist who is also a big boxing fan and this is exactly what he described to me about how to guarantee a knockout and what is happening in your skull when that force is applied. Good info to have in a pinch.


Plopplopsploosh

Sounds like you’ve got a plan.


kilgore_trout8989

[Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.](https://i.imgur.com/v9aemFS.jpg)


United_Bag_8179

Magnum foramen?


possiblydefinitelyme

So if you pirouette with the impact, then sudden deceleration shouldn't occur, right?


Pat_Mahomie

http://dearsportsfan.com/2015/09/24/what-does-it-mean-to-roll-with-the-punches/


Lkj509

Either that or the Bas Rutten special, where you use your wrist bone to hit the person behind the ear. Even if you do it on yourself, you’ll feel the wobble.


Big_Burning_Ace_Hole

Also he wasn't putting any force at all in those punches. He was simply moving his arm, you need to put your back and legs into it.


EnjoytheDoom

Yeah you can't lightly graze someone's face anywhere and "guarantee" a knockout that's ridiculous... might as well have kissed him...


hi5yeah

Judging from the green phone booth in the background, this must have happened in Japan. Also, the big guy looks like a non-Japanese and the little guy looks a Japanese. One reason why the big guy is showing so much restraint could be due to how unfriendly Japanese police are to foreigners when arrested on charges like assault. And mind you, it’s very hard to prove “attacked in self-defense” in Japanese law.


Dacka_Dacka

I've read that , In Japan, it's so rare for a criminal defendant to be found not guilty, that whenever a Japanese criminal atty wins one, their bar association throws them a party.


golapader

Imagine being a criminal defense lawyer in Japan, that's gotta be soul crushing.


Catacalypse

That's why they made a whole ass video game about it


The_Arborealist

Fighting unwinnable fights? That doesn't sound so bad. Biffing an easy one and ruining someones life because you messed up? less so,


Rossington134

If you know they only prosecute cases they are nearly 100% sure will have a guilty verdict Id assume criminal defense lawyers would focus on lessening the sentences.


deezx1010

I once had my public defender tell me he has no idea what to even argue. After a while I realized my experience was on par with everyone else. He didn't read my case before or after he had to see me in court


Type-94Shiranui

I'm pretty sure in the original video you can hear them both speak Japanese...


ThirdEncounter

Oh, right, only the Japanese can speak Japanese. Right?!


jamtheman150

The hat guy seems asian though? He has definitively asian hair and though the face is blurry and looks kinda asian, he just seems like a tanned dude, which isnt uncommon in asian countries


gamerholic

Yup seems totally Asian and it seems he took advantage of the smaller kid and probably offered him a certain number of punches to his face in exchange for one of his while his friend recorded...


YhuggyBear

Asain doesn't mean Japanese though lol


[deleted]

You know you can be Asian, in Japan, and a foreigner, right?


hojboysellin3

What??? Lol


jamtheman150

What?


Candyvanmanstan

Yeah man, he looks asian to me as well. It's like people see a cap and dark skin and thinks he must be american.


jamtheman150

My dad and his coworkers could easily have been in the place of this guy, theyd still basically look the same


bruce_wayne4550

How so?


Quartnsession

So don't call the cops. Problem solved.


hi5yeah

You don’t need to call the cops at that scene. If the guy that got KO’d files a complaint with local police (yeah, he’s the one who started, but he got hit too), the other guy will surely be haunted down in a matter of days; as a foreigner he’s surely in disadvantage and an immediate penalty could be getting deported. I’ve lived in Japan for over 20 years and seen it few times. It’s nothing about being racist, but that’s just how the law is framed here — you’re not welcomed if you can’t live in harmony.


robertgentel

> It’s nothing about being racist.. Japan is also very xenophobic and racist though...


Pactae_1129

It just seems like the law being engineered against foreigners is, like, blatant racism? Xenophobic if we want to be technical I guess.


CapsLowk

In Japan (as I've heard) you can't have your lawyer with you while being interrogated.


Background_Piano7984

In boxing this what we call “rolling with the punch” for those who don’t know what it means when people say the phrase “rolling with the punches”. It takes the sting off the shot as it slides across your face, not pleasant by any means but its better than getting knocked out.


SomeOtherNeb

I feel like if you've punched someone in the face 3 times and they still haven't reacted, that's your cue to leave as quickly as possible.


GSEagle2012_22

That drag on the cigarette first 🤣🤣🤣

hmitch94

Imagine standing in front of somebody and punching them in the face without thinking of the possibility of retaliation in the form of a big fist to the chin.


sucitivel

“i must apologize for wimp lo, he is an idiot, we have purposely trained him wrong as a joke”


Seco4800

Yup. You can tell when someone has no experience throwing a punch. The retaliation punch, now that shit had some hot sauce on it. Fire 🔥

josefalanis

I remember seeing this video and the black guy was provoking the smaller kid to hit him, knowing that he couldn’t do any damage. This isn’t instant karma.

Liu Kang forgot to eat his Wheaties.


Diodon

Just a typical Morrowind new-game experience.


Trayew

Never take it on the chin, the impact alone usually knocks you out because the brain gets rattled. That’s why the big guy kept turning his head, to protect his chin.


Deving09

That kid is getting more scared every punch he throws 😂😂


Quirky_m8

Bruh this kid should’ve ran after the first two hits.


bpmd1962

Just like Hulk Hogan back in the day..he’d take a bunch of punches and slowly get up and then wave his finger at the other guy...
