In Episode 13 Ash catches a Pokémon that would exceed the limit of 6 Pokémon for the first time and therefore it gets transfered automatically to professor Oak. How does this work?
- How does the ball know it's the 7th?
- How does it know it needs to transferred to Oak?
If I were to guess I would think that every Pokéball is linked directly to the Pokédex which is linked to Professor Oak or something. But this doesn't make sense in a lot of ways. Because:
- not every trainer has a Pokédex
- not every trainer is linked to some professor (I think)
Also what would happen if Ash physically went to Oak, grab some of his Pokéballs (with Pokémon) and walked out?
