    -Why does Roserade has poison whips but can't learn vine/power whip?
    -Surely the daycare man knows where pokémon eggs come from, he must think that the most experienced trainer is five, or just senile. XD
    -Why does the pokedex entry say that Samurott silence enemies by glaring and howling yet it can't learn leer, glare, or howl?
    -How come Samurott is not water/fighting or water/steel, really gamefreak. Fire/Fighting is getting old.
    -How come the baby Kangaskhan is not its own species of pokémon?
    -Why does EVERYONE rely on the help of a kid to stop groups such as Team Rocket/Aqua/Plasma etc?
    -Why is Gardevoir not part of the humanshape egg group but is part of THE AMPORUS GROUP? (Really imagine how things between Gardevoir/Muk/Weezing) O_O
    -How come Wailord CAN BREED with Diglett!?

    Because he doesn't know. Pokemon refuse to breed when they're being observed, so nobody really has any idea what Pokemon reproduction entails. A semi-popular theory that I subscribe to says that it's a process in which the two Pokemon share their energies in order to create an egg out of nothing, in a manner similar to that seen in the Arceus event, only on a non-cosmic scale. This theory rectifies two major issues; 1) Why does nobody know how Pokemon breed? and 2) How can a Skitty breed with a Wailord?

    Because it's just a small Kangaskhan, not a different Pokemon.

    They don't rely on it; the kid just ends up getting entangled in the villainous team's plot and usually ends up in a position to bring them down.

    Because perhaps the Gardevoir you're seeing is an illusion. It is a Psychic-type, after all.

    No, it evolves into a Pokemon that looks like a doll.

    Same goes for Pokemon, really... if all your Pokemon are in the same type of Pokeballs, how do you know which member of your team you're sending out when you have six identical Pokeballs in front of you? Or as a trainer do you just... "know"?
    Your player has an Identic memory and a bag like Hermine (however u spell it from harry potter) or Mary Poppin's Bag.

    Pokémon can be caught by either surfing on the water or through fishing, yet they don't know "Surf". What do they do drown?

    They swim, without having to know how to glide on the water carrying a human in their backs

    No one reacts if you toss out some "mythical" legendary pokemon.

    Yes; it was a doll that was abandoned. It was so mad that it came Live and turned into a Pokemon so that it could seek revenge in its owner.

    The fact that poison types are no longer super effective against bug types. Really whwn you think about it, we do use poisons to kill bugs.

    While I agree with you in that I think Poison should be SE against Bug, a case can be made in support of the change by citing the fact that several kinds of insects are immune to their own venom.

    Bugs also become resistant to pesticides over time. =P

    For the person who said about not knowing which Pokemon is in which Poke Ball, in the Adventures manga, they are transparent so you can see the Pokemon in them. Maybe it's like that?

    Poison can also be used to kill, well, pretty much anything. Not just bugs.

    By this logic, poison should be super effective against anything not immune to it.

    Hence why the status effect "Poisoned" works on all types except Poison and Steel. :3

    I think there are many topics Pokemon could expand upon. Atleast a game-canon map of all known regions would be nice...
    I'd like to say something against a common answer to this question. People often say that "why don't the people just use guns". If this world evolved around having Pokemon as peoples companions that both protect and attack for the human, then there would be almost no need for fire arms. But human self-defence items such as swords or pepper spray (or in their case, Cheri Spray or something) for those without Pokemon or just for extra protection, would still exist.

    I dunno, just a thought.

    Well in the anime it clearly isn't! Yet somehow they all know....except in the episode "snack attack" where ash twice sent out the wrong pokemon...but other than that it is flawless!

    Also it is crazy how you can carry items like a bike and 3 fishing poles and up to 900 of all the smaller items in your bag.....but for the big items at least, a theory did come up on the internet that they all could be in pokeballs....but then back to the knowing what is what problem lololol :P (I choose you.....MY BIKE?! :P)
    Hi I am back and hopefully really will be active again! LOVING XY so much but there really isn't even a point of saying I love it since it is just....arceus. Yeah. Anyways, my 3DS friend code is 0688 5572 5678 if anyone wants to battle or register me!
