    It's not really mistranslated, a sucker punch IS a surprise attack.

    Golurk learning fly... And Gyarados not being able to learn fly. It angers me, but it's not that bad I guess

    Cool Bubble? Splash? My mind is blown ( Kabloom!)

    Thing in pokemon that boogle your mind. One thing that puzzles me is there's a move called gravity it makes perfect sense that poke mon can make gravity and they battle in zero gravity.

    It is supposed to be a robot, it learning Fly is just a general pop culture reference.

    The Slowpoke line can learn Flamethrower too. THEY'RE OTTER/SALAMANDER/HIPPOPOTAMUS THINGS.

    Am I the only one who finds it a little bit disturbing that Jynx can learn lick.

    Hum, all of these odd ones (Cryogonal, Larvesta, Ferroseed) regarding Attract are in Gen V...

    Maybe Gen V isn't loved?
    My theory is that Cryoganal originally had genders and Ferroseed/Ferrothorn were genderless and this was changed at the last second. I think that Volcarona was going to be a legendary (there is other evidence that suggests this) and Larvesta was tacked on at the last minute after they decided who should learn what TM's.

    Er, Gravity intensifies the gravity, otherwise it wouldn't have the effect of grounding Flying types and Levitating Pokemon, allowing Ground type moves to hit them. It makes it harder for Pokemon to maneuver which is why evasion is decreased, it doesn't make everything all floaty and light.

    Putting that aside, I know it's just a game, but it's weird how full on Pokemon battles can be done in huge skyscrapers (Battle Tower and Black City's Tower) and subway systems, what with moves like Earthquake and large bodies of water being thrown out.

    Nope, Dragon Dance is just "Dragon Dance" in Japan, and Scrafty's Japanese name (Zuruzukin) doesn't have anything to do with dragons.

    If I had to guess something other than just technical/strategy reasons, I would say that maybe it is because Scrafty is a lizard?

    Scrafty is a lizard, and he is based on a thug. I'd say the move could be based off of crumping, or some other type of street dancing. Makes sense to me.

    What is weird is how full grown adults can be carried around on the backs of spearows and such in mid air, perfectly fine o.O

    I always found it weird Pokemon would listen to humans... you don't see me taming wild bears to fight my friends do you? (I understand that it can be done, but it isn't exactly mainstream like it is in Pokemon)

    I still think that Pidgey, Taillow and Starly being able to learn Fly is weird for me...

    Why is it so weird to think that all of these things can swim? Stunfisk even lives in the water!

    The "Mach-" in "Machamp" comes from "macho," not "mach speed."

    Okay so apparently I have to be super specific and say "bad translation" instead of "mistranslation"

    No generalizing here it seems...

    To be fair, Machamp is said to be able to punch 500 times per second.

    That's true; I was just saying that the oddity of Machamp not learning Mach Punch isn't caused by its name.

    Any move that Alakazam or Metagross can't learn is odd, because they supposedly have of-the-charts IQ levels. To concede a point, some wouldn't make sense, but most would, psychic powers being the enabler.

    Also, the fact that they fail to learn all the moves they are capable of learning makes no sense.
