    That'd be weird. I can't imagine having Pokemon Pink back in 1st gen, and Ash hanging out with a Clefairy all the time.

    Something I thought was weird is that a Genger weighs more then 400 times more then a Haunter, but actually has less height.

    Youngster Joey's Rattata actually has near-flawless IVs in HGSS, meaning that it really is in the top percentage of Rattata.

    Some of the Gen 2 pokemon were meant to be introduced in Gen 1, but were scrapped and later reused in Pokemon Gold/Silver.

    Actually, from what I remember was that poliwag was the first pokémon, thought up by Satoshi Tajiri when he saw tadpoles with spiralling innards seen through their semi-transparent skin.

    Though he could have thought of it earlier, then created it after creating rhydon.

    I'm sure everyone knows this one: Jynx's skin tone was changed from black to purple since everyone thought that she was a racial stereotype, when in fact (bet you didn't know this, but you might) she is based off a mythological singer and dancer that brought blizzards to Mt. Fuji.

    Actually, the only reason they chose Pikachu over Clefairy as the mascot was sheerly due to its popularity in the anime.

    Butterfree was supposed to be the Venonat's final form and Venomoth, Caterpie's.
    No, really. This is just a random theory, but a very likely one.

    Here are some:

    - Poliwag's swirl changes direction when it evolves into Poliwhirl.

    - Girafarig is one of four Pokemon with palindromic names, the others being Eevee, Ho-oh and Alomomola

    - Pikachu is actually only native to the Kanto region. All Pikachu found in other regions (such as the Safari Zone in Hoenn, and the Trophy Garden in Sinnoh) were imported there from Kanto.

    I thought they chose Pikachu because unlike Clefairy, it is yellow, a color that please both boys and girls, unlike pink, which is supposed to be a girl's only color.

    More like... Clefairy would have been too girly when the anime and games was focused on appealing both genders. <.> So I think Pikachu was decided because its cute, but looks.. powerful for the little guys XP ^_^

    Here's another fact about the Poliwag family: Those swirly bellies of theirs aren't just for show, they're really supposed to be their intestines; able to be seen through their semitransparent skin. Based off actual tadpoles : )

    If a theoretical Pokémon of every single type existed, its only weakness would be Rock.

    Is this why they chose Stealth Rock?

    Poliwhirl is one of my top favorite pokemon and I've always been fascinated by the appearance of the tadpoles<3

    Took this from Did You Know Gaming, so no credit to me, but Psychic type Pokemon are weak to common fears. Ghost, Dark, Bug.

    Ash in the pokemon anime was suppose to become a kind of red, and use Pokemon to conquer the world with justice. But when Satoshi and Ken realized most of the money came from 8 to 10 years old, they had no choice but to leave Ash 10 because of pressure from Nintendo and their peers. Satoshi and Ken wanted a Red. So what they did is that they gave the rights to.... Well I can't remember his name but the guy who first developped the mangas. What he did is that he made the Mangas close to what the anime was suppose to be.

    I don't think so.. it is because there are more rock weak than rock resists not like the rest of the types (some have immunities so that's why ground and fighting are out of the list).
    Anyway this thread seems like a trivia thread.

    The Arceus Triad symbol is part of a worldwide conspiracy that everything in the universe can be either triangular or spherical in some way, shape or form.

    Thank you for your interest, but this is a discussion forum. We don't really need a thread to collect a bunch of common Pokemon trivia, since we have sites like Serebii.net and Bulbapedia that organize and spread that information already.
