    This is just as weird as Alakazam and Primeape being able to learn the move, since having something intangible for your tail makes it just as impossible as having no tail.
    Not to mention, iron would probably melt in a fire like that (assuming that the temperature is high enough), or at least not be very effective at all.

    I checked and Golduck and Golbat (both names starting with Gol) are tied along with their pre-evolved forms for having the most Pokedex entries, with Pokemon Black and White being the only Pokemon games with new Pokedex entries that did not give them new entries due to only introducing Unova Pokemon entries.

    Hoenn has disappointed.

    P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.

    These have probably been said but...

    Hitmonlee is based of Bruce Lee

    and Hitmonchan is based off Jackie Chan.

    The names of cities and towns in Unova come from different types of cloud or cloud phenomena. Landorus, Thunderus and Tornadus all ride on clouds.

    In Pewter City Museum, you can see pictures of Kabutops fossil/skeleton and Aerodactyl fossil/skeleton, but none for Omastar. Two Missingno. variants in the first Generation games have these skeletal sprites (the Kabutops one appears awesome). Guess what two fossil Pokemon are revived in Movie 5? And I do recall seeing an early trailer (trailers always lie) in which the two revived fossils remained as skeletons.

    and then steal our idea???

    Charizard couldn't learn fly in R/B/G. This bug was fixed in Yellow.

    In the 1st generation in lavender tower, before you acquired the silph scope the unnamed "ghost" pokemon was supposed to be a decayed, disembodied hand, shaped like a fist. The attacks were to be 2 moves unique to the ghost pokemon. Also, Cubone's ghost / mother Marowak was was supposed be much stronger. If it defeated you in battle, the Marowak would speak, saying "finally, fresh meat", and the game would likely give you an effective "game over", but the planned outcome is unknown. Needless to say, these details were erased because they were deemed far too scary.
    I have claimed Alduin, the mighty dragon! He shall one day return to bring forth the end of time, and fulfill the prophecy of the world eater.

    If one were to combine the types of Gliscor and Empoleon and put them on one Pokemon, that Pokemon would have no weaknesses.

    You can surf on a tree near the PWT building in B2W2

    One of the pokemon that never made it to the light was a water-type starter called Kurusu.

    There was supposed to be a surfboard in gen 1.

    All the exhibits in the Marine Museum in RSE state true facts.

    Shellos was supposed to originate in Gen 3

    Lucario is basically an anagram of Riolu but with two extra letters.

    Victreebell was the last Gen 1 Pokemon created.

    They inserted a stealth parody of Yoda in Violet city in GSC

    I'm no christian...but from my understanding, wasn't the devil more of a manipulator? Giritina was banished for it's own violence, and I hardly doubt the ghost dragon tries to take advantage of anyone. I'd imagine it to try and solve it's problems itself, like how it stopped Cyrus in Platinum. And the suicide...gah, this guy needs to separate myth from fact better.

    Though the Wobbuffet one makes a lot of sense to me. After all, the big blue part seems to be based off a punching bag. It's kind of weird that there'd be a pokemon that battles by letting itself get beaten to a pulp.

    Uri Geller sued Nintendo over Kadabra (the japanese name looks similar to his) after a 'Dark Kadabra' pokemon card was released.
    (The case was dropped but there are no more Kadabra Pokemon trading cards after that)

    @GreatGonzales, you've been reading too many creepypastas lately haven't you. THAT WAS NEVER AN IDEA, JUNICHI MASUDA SAID SO HIMSELF!

    To add to this, and I don't know if it had been mentioned in these 500 pages, but Spiritomb, Sableye, Tynamo, Eelektrik and Eelektross are the only Pokémon to have no weaknesses, where 3 of those are in the same evolutionary family. Tynamo, Eelektrik and Eelektross are also the only ones who negates all weaknesses thanks to an ability, Levitate. Spiritomb and Sableye simply have no weaknesses because Ghost and Dark negates each others' weaknesses, and they're dual Ghost/Dark types.

    No, there wasn't. It was just too difficult to get the Surf HM while playtesting the game in the betas (And yet, they left it in the same spot). So, they made a surfboard item that acted as an item version of Surf and used it while playing through the game. It was never meant to be available in-game.

    The three Hoenn starters are each able to learn at least one of the signature moves of their type by leveling up while their evolved forms can't. Treecko can learn mega drain at level 26 and Giga drain at level 46 while sceptile can only learn them through tms. It instead learns leaf blade level 29 and leaf storm level 67. Torchic can learn Flamethrower at level 43 while Braziken can only learn it from tm. Blaziken can learn blaze kick level 36 and sky uppercut level 59. Mudkip learns Hydro Pump level 42. This makes it impossible for a Swampert to know hydro pump unless the user either waits to evolve mudkip when it knows the move or through a move tutor who helps Swanpert learn hydro pump. Instead it learns muddy water at level 39.

    Also Regigigas may also off been mentioned in the 3rd gen. When reading information about the Regi's the people who sealed them away mention "they were afraid of its power". This doesn't make sense as the sentence only seems to mean one Pokemon so it could not off been about the other three Regi's.

    Onix can learn Slam. There is also a rap group called Onyx that has a song named "Slam". Coincidence? I think not.

    Oh, my mistake. XP Btw, @Zachmac, I knew there were others, but I just couldn't remember their names.

    Anyways, in an early screenshot of B/W, Excadrill's stripes were facing the opposite direction from where they're facing now.

    One of the scrapped Pokemon for Gen 2 was a turtle that looked a bit like Tirtouga.

    There are more than 15 ( I think) glitch pokemon in Pokemon RBY.
