    One doesn't need to have wings to create noise. >_>

    Why don't we ever get to see a Pokemon take a squat?
    They should be treated like a tamagotchi/giga pet

    The user vibrates its wings to generate a damaging sound wave. It may also lower the target's Sp. Def stat.

    Anyone ever notice the ball animation for nest ball is the same as the friend ball?
    No it doesn't. The Nest Ball has it's own unique animation, whilst all the Apricorn balls have the Pokeball animation.

    Prior to Gen V, all Pokémon who learnt Bug Buzz had wings. I guess whoever wrote the in-game description presumed that the noise was created using wings. However, it's evident now that this is not the case; Bug Buzz can be used by creating noise in any manner.

    It creates wings of electricity, obviously. Next time, think before you question the absoluteness of the mighty Galvantula, mortal.

    hmmm.......why do escape ropes act like teleportation devices and take one out of a dungeon so quickly? Why doesn't someone see an animation of the person shooting an opening in the cieling, chucking one of their pokemon up there and then climbing up the rope like Indiana Jones or something?

    Disregarding the fact that Pokémon is for handheld consoles (read: not as powerful as home consoles), it appears the developers like to keep an element of simplicity in Pokémon games.

    The anime rarely makes sense...it's most likely because it's a childish anime compared to others, seeing how as the humans don't die from electrical bolts, flamethrowers, etc.

    In kanto there were real fishes in the cerulean gym! How can Lugia's son be manaphy if they don't look anything like each other? There are real apples and other things in Pokemon and they just call it fruit! WHEN will Ash age?
    If you have question for anything just write on my profile page (everyone: Lugia has a son?)

    This talk about apples reminded me of something I thought was weird in PMD2. You hear talk about the Golden Apple being so great, but when you actually find it it's not really that much different from a normal apple.

    They just convert their waste into elemental power like fire, electricity, water, etc.

    Why can't you use Flash Fire to hatch Eggs quickly, like Magma Armor or Flame Body? That's something I don't get. O_o

    Why Won't Ash Age?! I think it would make it that much more awesome if Ash was now 16 or something. Being 10 and traveling the world in one year is just.... just not right.

    Pokemon is a children's game, it would not be appealing to a 8 year old to see a 25 year old grown man trying to catch Pokemon alongside way younger companions

    A sucker punch had evolved to a word meaning any surprise attack. Hitmonless is perfectly capable of it, despite having "no punching abilities."

    anyway, I wonder why Scyther cannot learn Fly despite having visible wings. Also, Magnemite (a levitating Pokemon) is affected by EQ, whereas Dodue (a flightless bird) is not.

    Flash Fire absorbs flames/heat, but it doesn't produce it. The other two do.

    Scyther likely can't support a human in flight.

    Not sure why Magnemite is affected by earthquake. The move may have a different effect than we think; in Colosseum and XD, Earthquake is shown to be a move that causes the ground to shoot up underneath a pokemon. Maybe Magnemite, since it only levitates using natural magnetism as opposed to traditional methods of flight, can't levitate far enough off the ground to avoid the attack.

    Doduo, on the other hand, can likely jump up in the air long enough to avoid the attack on account of its powerful legs and lightweight body. This is also how it can use Fly.
