When you start your Pokemon journey and get to choose your travel buddy, we learn that starters are difficult to find in the wild. Today Austin is going to uncover the secrets of Pokemon starters and why they may be going EXTINCT!

There is one advantage of having more males, males have to fight for the female meaning the offspring will likely get the best genes

So we all basicly just ignore that fact that the tepig and squirtle at 0:40 (or whatever it's name is) is shiny

why am i watching Austin but listening to ilMango
Happyfuz1 Hi!
Basically: For every seven males there is one female, the females are the ones who make and carry the eggs, less females = less babies, and with females being rare already...at a certain point, there would be no females. If it were reversed and there were seven females for one male, then that would be fine because one male can fertalize all of the females and thus have more babies, more females and the males would be fine because there are more and more babies constantly being made with so many females! If any altering factor were to jump in front of train tracks that lead the breeding train, then the Bulbasaur's would go extinct faster then they could evolve to adapt.

Tbh, the example of the Panda kinda bugged me. Since Pandas are fairly useless to the environment and have such a stupid digestive system that only let's them properly digest useless foods. I don't think keeping those animals alive is worth any work. Life is not worth anything just by being life. After all, life is just something we defined. I could very well call the next stone I see life as a part of nature. Also, since we are all made of stardust essentially, I could also strike an argument from there for "lifeless" things to be the same as us. My point is, actively keeping alive species that would die 100% without our work to keep them alive is a waste of time if the species is useless. I can understand why we would try and keep Bees alive, but Pandas? Why? I love animals, I don't hate Pandas. But disrupting evolution, our scientific rise and nature to keep them alive? Seems crazy to me. Just let them die out.

Here’s a theory. Wild Starters and Captivity Starters may lay their eggs differently. Lets say Bulbasaur have a Queen, lets say a Venusaur, and the males are like her works, just like actual bees. Venusaur Queen is able to lay more lays, like the so call frogs their referees too, then a normal caught Bulbasaur or any of its evol forms. So in the wild there are many wild Bulbasaur but they may live only in one place, like one of those “out of bounds” areas that none of us can reach and, like in Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, they do sometimes appear for the catching. The same is said about Charmander and Squirtle in that game. Shoot I was able to catch wild Charizard’s like they Rattata. This can be said for the Gen 1 Red and Blue games but those starters just never leave their homes, EVER. Leaving us to accept aid from another game and trade to finish the Pokédex.

I've got an idea : 1 like gave to that video= 1 pokedollar gave to proffessor tree to help him save the starters species and one game theorist's subscriber =2 female starter hatched. So there was more than 11,000,000 female baby starter pokemon and more than 136,000 pokedollars gave to proffessor tree when i whrote that comment. (Sorry for the orthograph mistakes).
