Show me where he states that the "physical" bunshins are ALL of the same quality as Kage Bunshin and you have an argument. Never in the history of Naruto has any clone other than Shadow Clone been specifically used to transfer knowledge other than the wood clone. So technically we don't know. You seem so freakin' sure of yourself that ALL the elemental bunshin do the same thing...which is odd. I'm not discounting the notion that it could very well be true, but all I am saying is it isn't very likely. Also, I don't remember this completely but has an elemental bunshin ever used a technique before? I don't really remember all that well off the top of my head. If they haven't then its also a matter of the elemental clones not being able to hold chakra and use it to execute techniques. Also, I always assumed that Orochimaru's "Sludge Clones" weren't clones and it was just a "Sludge Replacement" technique.Originally Posted by Talamare
Mind you Kakashi also said that this training could ONLY be done by Naruto, although he may have been speaking in generalizations it still has to be taken into consideration.
