    I was going to post this as a plain old fact, but quizzes are better:

    There is only one Pokémon whose name contains the name of a region. Can you find it?
    HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY,
    POKÉMON COLOSSEUM!


    May your quirky characters and edgy plot twists
    live forever inside our minds.

    Because according to producers
    and copyright lawyers,
    that's the only place
    where they belong.

And I've never seen one of the many squirrels in my yard with a really curled-up tail, some kinda curl at the end when they sit still but a lot of the tume they are really straight. It is Squirt + Turtle, simple as that. If your whole point of posting is to make a joke, please resist if it is not a joke thread. This is just like the whole:

    Ekans = Snake
    Arbok = Kobra
    Muk = ?

    thing. Muk is just a misspelling of muck, which Muk is indeed muck. That is a total coincidence, and not meaning anything. Or the Rival's Raticate thing that has been debunked time and time again but people still insist on it. Or that one thing that has been going around the internet with a lot of 'facts', some of which are true but some are crap.

    For another fact, but one that is actually true, Bug is the only type other than the starter types to have an ability which increases its power when in critical condition (A bit oddly worded, but I'm saying that Swarm is the Bug-equivalent of Torrent, Overgrow, and Blaze and the only one that is a non-starter type).

    Seedot is the only pokemon that can learn moves via level up (barring smeargle) that has kept the same learn set (levels and all) since the generation it was introduced.
    fossils released in the same region (barring old amber) all share the same color shade for their bag icon

    Kanto: Brown
    Hoenn: Grayish brown
    Sinnoh: Reddish brown
    Unova: Dark blue

    Focus blast, Frost Breath, and Snarl are moves that can only be taught via TM.

    Can't be sure if this has been said yet, but I might as well and have someone then correct me.

    The legendary bird's names are a combination of elements and Spanish numbers.

    Articuno = Arctic (Ice) + Uno
    Zapdos = Zap (Electric) + Dos
    Moltres = Molten (Fire) + Tres

    Then, there's the two Fighting-Type brothers. Their names are based off of two combat legends.

    Hitmonchan = Jackie Chan
    Hitmonlee = Bruce Lee

    Finally, Kanghaskan's name is based off of Genghis Khan, an old emperor.

    I think it's just a newbie trying to post random things to increase postcount. Which won't work here.

    and ironically enough, despite Gengis Khan being male, Kangaskhan itself can only be female.

    I didn't understand that either.


    The animation and colour are different in BW and B2W2. For some reason, I can't put the new animation in my post.

    Metagross weighs about 1212 pounds

    That, of course, is two twelves.

    12 x 12 = 144

    144 is... a gross :3

    Probably just a fun coincidence. o:

    ...or maybe it is intended

    I kinda doubt they just randomly picked 1212 for its weight.








    Anyway, despite having flame (which is intangible) for their tail, both Ponyta and Rapidash are capable of learning the move Iron Tail.

    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.

    -Mamoswine and its evolutionary line are the only Pokemon family which have a typing which allows them not to take any damage from weather(Ice/Ground).The other possible combinations Ice/Steel and Ice/Rock have not materialized.Though other Pokemon with Overcoat also don't take any damage,it is due to their ability.

    -They are also the only Pokemon to take Super Effective damage from the Primary STAB of all the starters.

    -Swinub,Piloswine,Mamoswine,Vibrava,Flygon,Gible,Ga bite and Garchomp can cause Super Effective damage to every Pseudo Legendary with just their STAB attacks(Ice/Dragon attacks take care of Dragonite,Salamence,Garchomp and Hydreigon while Ground attacks take care of Tyranitar and Metagross).

    Here's something interesting that supports the theory that Kangaskhan was originally supposed to be (or to have...) an evolution.

    The fact is, iff you perform the "TM 55 Glitch" in Pokemon Yellow, you can actually see a Kangaskhan trying to evolve...

    And also a funny thing - though I think this is pretty random - when you finish that glitch, a Kangaskhan's spirte appears in Lavender Town, replacing some girl, asking you if you believe in ghosts...

    fire starters are based on the chinaese Zodiac:
    Charmander: dragon
    Cydaqual: Rat
    Torchic: Rooster
    Chimchar: monkey
    tepig:Pig/boar

    Water starters are based on semi-acqatic animals

    That is a very interesting fact, though Cyndaquil isn't a rat, but a echidna.
    Judging by it, the next Fire-Type starter will be:

    - A sheep? That would be cool.
    - A horse? Meh, Ponyta again?
    - A rabbit? It would be cool too.
    - A tiger? Hm... no. :c
    - An ox? Now that would be interesting.
    - A snake? We already have Charmander as a reptile-like Fire starter.
    - A dog? Houndoom 2.0?

    Talking about starters, all Grass-Type ones are based on reptile animals.

    Bulbasaur = dinosaur.
    Chikorita = dinosaur too.
    Treecko = lizard.
    Turtwig = tortoise.
    Snivy = snake.
