Oh-Em-Gi A.Dobson needs to get schooled in pokemon.
Who raises a Pam that doesn't have Knock off, its only like her signature move? I bet you she wasnt bred for IVs and EVs either~You need 252HP and 252Speed and the rest on Defense. And she probably has a Conflicting Nature on top of it. I mean if you can't get a good one atleast use a neutral nature like Quirky. And shes not even holding an Item? King's Rock is awesome on her! It makes the opponent flinch 80% chance when using Criticism. Coupled with Bad Dreams for Ability, she can ding the opponents HP to 0 before they even make a move!
Just shows how imbalanced the game is, Legendary Pokemon has so much advantage its auto-win most of the time to a point that a poorly raised Pam one shotted Pikachu. Ash is partly to blame though, I mean come on stop holding on to your pride and evolve him to Raichu! He already got lucky against LT Surge.
Did I make enough references? I wanted to mirror your effort in the comic in comment mode~
