June 26th, 2009 | Let's Chat

Hello there! I’m not sure what to think about this, but… How did Pokey learn to fly helicopters? And where was he flying off to after he left Fourside?

He learned from playing too much of the vidya as a kid.

Rafa said on Jun. 26, 2009

I think I remember the helicopter ending up being crashed in the Lost Underworld.

Pigmask Private said on Jun. 26, 2009

Flying sim games.

And where was he flying to?

Back.

Back where?

Back To the Future!

Deiphobus said on Jun. 26, 2009

obviously L was in that helicopter.

KingDarian said on Jun. 26, 2009

You’re thinking of Deep Darkness, not Lost Underworld. They’re close to each other, but worlds apart. Don’t forget that before his unplanned landing in the swamp, he made a “pitstop” in Scaraba.

As to how he learned to fly the danged thing…I’m positive that the Onett library had a book on it. Just make sure you return it by 2001. Oh, crap! Those late fees must really be piling up now.

Poke learned from TV, And he went to the bathroom. He had to go VERY badly.

Spitball Sparky said on Jun. 26, 2009

I dunno how he learned, but I’m pretty sure his next stop was Summers.

1. Giygas didn’t want Ness to go there.

2. The bellhop in the Summers Hotel almost calls Ness Master Pokey.

Steve! said on Jun. 26, 2009

Microsoft flight simulator of course.

Not Giygas said on Jun. 26, 2009

That flight simulator on Google Earth. But most of the time he just crashes into Ness’ house.

Where, uh… The City of New Fiveton

EmeraldWind said on Jun. 26, 2009

Perhaps, a Giygas-controlled helicopter pilot…

I didn’t make it that far in the game so I have no real answer…

Once again… I must ask… I have played and beaten Mother (EB0) and Mother 3, but have never beaten EB… is this odd?

Mato said on Jun. 26, 2009

It’s pretty clear that Pokey went on some kind of trip that went Fourside->Summers->Scaraba->Deep Darkness, but I’m wondering where his actual final destination was meant to be. Somehow he winds up in the past eventually though.

Rafa said on Jun. 26, 2009

KingDarian, yeah, I meant that.
I was trying so hard not to mix them up, but I did anyway.

steinmitz said on Jun. 26, 2009

It’s also alluded to that Pokey visited the Lost Underworld , as a Tenda there mentions how a chubby kid said something ” heartrending ” to him . Then it seems that Pokey somehow arrives in Saturn Valley , where he apparently steals the first Phase Distorter .

LucasTizma said on Jun. 26, 2009

Aw, I always felt sorry for the Walking Bushie. :’) Poor little guy.

Lothis said on Jun. 26, 2009

Porky went to Summers, stayed the night at the Hotel, took off for Scaraba, made a pit stop, and crashlanded in Deep Darkness. He then made off to the Lost Underworld, said some things, and then some how crossed the gap in the Cave to the Past that Ness and Company could not pass and stole the Phase Distorter to go back in time.

Earthbound_X said on Jun. 27, 2009

He consumed a helicopter pilot and learned his skills…sorry, too much Prototype.

22hunter said on Jun. 27, 2009

He doesn’t know how to fly
Why do you think he crashed?

Piggy Guy said on Jun. 27, 2009

Pokey didn’t actually learn how to fly the helicopter; when he was going somewhere, he just flapped his arms really really fast. When you encounter him in fourside, he’s just sorta hovering. With… a hover button. And where was he going? Whereever he crashed when his arms tired out.

PK Mt. Fuji said on Jun. 27, 2009

He read the book “Learn How to Fly for Porkies” in the Onett Library so he could fly to the Onett Library.

That guy said on Jun. 27, 2009

His mind was influenced by Giygas who helped him fly the helicopter and used his invisible hand to guide Pokey to the Deep Darkness where he found the Lost Underworld, which as we saw, has a cave from where Ness goes into the past. He met Giygas in person there and then they went into the past together.

DiamondizedLucas said on Jun. 27, 2009

Autopilot to… Deep Darkness, I guess.

santiagoff said on Jun. 27, 2009

That’s some hard question you posted there.

Millhouse said on Jun. 27, 2009

don’t you know? In video games, all vehicles just drive/fly where you want them to go, without you having any control over their path. The helicopter must have been an early prototype, as it crashed.

EzraSmith said on Jun. 27, 2009

Earthbound first taught us World War 3 wouldn’t be fought between humans, and now it’s teaching us this. Brilliant.

PKNuMan said on Jun. 27, 2009

A better question is, how did he learn to pilot giant robot spider mechs!?

pooppoop said on Jun. 27, 2009

i think there was a pilot, but then the pilot couldn’t take pokey’s personality. the pilot ejected and pokey crashed

Claus said on Jun. 27, 2009

He went to Scaraba, then deep darkness where he crashed it.

Spitball Sparky said on Jun. 27, 2009

Final destination…if I had to guess, I’d say the West Cave in the Lost Underworld.

chimera said on Jun. 27, 2009

Okay, he most likely learned from flight sims, or since he’s so rich, his dad could afford to give him flying lessons. As for where he was going, probably Scaraba to get the Hawk eye before Ness so he could prevent him from getting through deep darkness. He was probably uncoordinated and therefore lost his way and crashed in Deep Darkness.

Adman said on Jun. 28, 2009

Sim Copter

Richard Nixon is Giygas said on Jun. 28, 2009

I think he flew to winters to make engagements with Dr. Andonauts. Because He only had a few oppurtunities to and Andonauts soon becomes engrossed in working on the phase distorter, leaving pokey only like 2 or 3 oppurtunities to get it made.

metroid_maniac said on Jul. 2, 2009

Pokey was going to the “Cave Of The Past In The Present” to use his prototype phase distorter to get to Giygas.that’s why he tried to land in the Deep Darkness, to get to Lost Underworld. He didn’t land properly. Also, he just wanted to annoy Ness!

Hunter said on Jul. 2, 2009

He played SimCopter or Flight Simulator.

Mr. Saturn said on Apr. 7, 2010

I wonder how he got to the Cave Of The Past in the first Phase Distorter. Everybody knows only the PD 3 can travel through time. Unless that mech he made can travel through time…

StarFan said on Dec. 14, 2010

hes a flying pig goin back to the farm

Anonymous said on Dec. 15, 2010

Okay he learnt how to fly from some random unicorn named charlie and Chuck Norris round house kicked him out of the sky for supporting Mr. T via wearing a “I pity da f00l”. Either that or the camera guy blinded him with a flash of his camera. It was trully magnificent. Oh, and no one got fuzzy pickles

Hairdresser Octopus said on May. 4, 2013

I have a question for you: Why are you so adorable, healing me for no reason then leaving without harm?

BobLikesToFart said on Dec. 10, 2013

He never could. he crashed in deep darkness :p
