Thread: Things in the Pokémon world which just don't make sense (by pokémon standards)

    If the games made sense it wouldn't be any fun would it?

    The reason a lot of pokémon can't learn certain moves is because their large movepool would break competitive gaming.

    The reason small bird pokémon can fly you places is so that the player doesn't have to keep a high level flying type if they don't want to. Same as any other HM.

    And as mentioned by someone earlier, certain moves that sound like pokémon shouldn't have them (I think someone used sucker punch as an example?) are affected by NOA's silly translations. For example I hate how they translated "Hop" to "Splash" and then gave splash to non-water types.

    How can they say Cresselia wards off Darkrai's nightmares and is its foil? Cresselia can't even scratch Darkrai with its main attacks, and doesn't have a move or ability to help. I honestly think the poor Pokemon should've gotten an ability to counter that weakness and the move Miracle Eye.

    Why is it you can capture the equivelant of GODS, and how is it no-one bats an eye(besides game mechanics).

    A Bug/Flying Pokemon can't learn Fly, yet a tiny Pidgey can. How is that fair?! I could buy that it can't maintain your weight, if the same applies for small bird Pokemon

    Because they aren't really gods. Cynthia states that Dialga/Palkia were so powerful that the people of ancient Sinnoh mistook them for gods, not that they are literal gods. This likely applies to the likes of other regions' legendaries as well.

    I know that, but how do they use it when they evolve?

    How the heck does Dugtrio use Aerial Ace?

    The move itself is based on a fencing technique, so it doesn't really have anything to do with flying. Lots of pokemon can use Aerial Ace that can't fly. It probably uses its talons.

    Doduo likely has strong legs that allow it to jump up in the air for the duration of an earthquake.

    Pokes like magnimite and Chandelure not having levitate. They're obviously levitating! On that note, why do attacks like mud slap not effect flying types/levitators? If the pokemon has enough strength, they will obviously hit the other poke. It makes no sense.

    What? Since when? Plus, you're forgetting that Cyrus was using Dialga and Palkia to remake the universe. Cynthia was rightfully worried what that maniac would've done to Giratina, who show to have warped the world. That isn't a sign you have simple "powerful" Pokemon on your hand, but beings who, if they aren't gods, they may as well be.

    My personal theory is that it's a "thank you" by the creation trio. You helped defeat Cyrus, the guy who was trying to destroy the universe. The creation trio decided that you deserve a gift for that-they'll be your Pokemon. Hey, to them a human life is but a blink of their eyes, so it wouldn't really matter.

    A plot hole has seemed to appear. When Cyrus was going after the creation duo, why didn't he try to Master Ball them? True, Pokeballs are power limiters, but he might as well have a contingency plan.

    I find that hard to beleive since Shedinjas aren't wild therefore cannot be captured, the only way to get a Shedinja is by having an empty slot upon evolving Ninjask at lvl 20 IIRC.... -_-

    Who says it isn't safe? You may not notice your soul being stolen. Also, its your Shedinja, so it would stay away from your soul.

    Because Ditto is not Male or Female, rather genderless so it can be either when it comes to Reproducing.

    The move Metronome. It's a great idea for a move, but seeing a Flying Snorlax... you know that makes zero sense.

    I don't calculate stat values I don't use cheating devices I don't breed my way to perfection and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are,and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    You live with your Mom...yet your house has only two rooms: your room, and the kitchen/living room. Does your Mom sleep in the sink?

    Yeah I've noticed this. I don't know why female Pokémon can't breed with Dittos (My female Togepi never did)

    ^That's because Togepi is a Baby Pokemon, who, by rule, do not breed. Evolve it first, then you'll see results.

    Gothitelle being faster than Reuniclus. She doesn't have legs! Reuniclus can actually levitate, even he's not terribly aerodynamic.

    Hm. That's new to me.

    Oh and I don't get how Tentacruel outspeeds stuff like Yanmega, Pikachu, Haunter, Sharpedo, etc.
