I don't think its fair to criticize someone for not knowing EVERY single move a single Pokemon can learn.
I agree. Pokemon movesets are always expanding with each generation. While it does seem outlandish for a Chespin to use Ice Beam...well it's no better than a Squirtle using Aura Sphere.I don't think its fair to criticize someone for not knowing EVERY single move a single Pokemon can learn.
Even I don't know every move Chespin can learn, plus with all these weird moves that Pokemon can actually learn, like how almost all Pokemon can learn toxic, I actually think it's an honest mistake for Marin to think Chespin can learn ice beam. Especially since she's kind of a newbie trainer, and basically only started just to end up traveling with Alain.
So I don't see how she would know better.
I mean Emboar can use Scald for crying out loud. And it's literally the only weird Pokemon that can learn it, and pretty much the only fire type that can learn it as well.
Volcanion can learn it as well, but I don't count Volcanion because it is part water.
So I just chalk it up to Marin not actually knowing better rather than because she's stupid and therefore in the way.
I'm sorry but I completely disagree here, Marin is not a annoying useless character like you describe her to be, in fact she is miles better than Bonnie at this point as he actually develops and actually helps other characters(like Alain grow as well). Her main purpose is actually to break Alain out of his shell and make him back to the person he once was beofe he got brainwashed by Lysandre. Did you even watch the scene carefully where Marin challenges Alain and convinces him not to go to fight the primals, it shows how much she cares about Alain.I agree with one of the posters above, Marin is so annoying, get rid of her. She does absolutely nothing all day, but get in the way, she has a Chespin and thinks that qualifies her for the big leagues dealing with all the megas and legendary megas/primals.
I'm sure the only reason they put her in the Mega Evo specials is to make Bonnie look good in the main series.
Seriously, what does this girl do, what does she contribute? I remember being annoyed in DpPt when Brock did a grand total of nothing, but at least he had the decency to remain silent and out of the way. She has the most annoying voice (can't believe people complain about Hoopa and not her) she gets in the way, she knows a grand total of zero about Pokemon, like even below the standard of a beginner, wouldn't be surprised if in #4 she tells Chespin it's time to digivolve. She just needs to be got rid of immediately. Why is she there?
It's not that she doesn't know everything Chespin as a species can learn. It's the fact that she seemed not to know that her own Chespin didn't know the move. She said it like she 100% knew (or thought) Chespie knew Ice Beam.
I agree, and I genuinely laughed when she said it lol. I didn't laugh at her and get annoyed, then use that as an example of not liking her.Are people aware that Mairin told Chespin to use Ice Beam because it was getting increasingly warm?
Are people aware that Mairin is a rookie, a mere beginner?
And what purpose would Solarbeam have in that situation, @Azuro; ? She needed something to cool her down.
Besides, the moment was more of a comic relief moment than anything, so I have no idea why it would annoy anyone so much that they would rather be annoyed over a joke than be astonished by a courageous act performed by the said character (risking her life and saving Alain's).
Oh well, I guess saving one's life isn't important enough. It's not like Alain, the protagonist of these specials, getting to live is vital to the plot or anything.
