    How does the move deleter make a pokemon forget a move? That seems quite creepy to me. It's like those sci-fi movies where the character gets his memory tampered with.

    But if that's true, then a lot of other Pokémon such as Eevee or Skitty or Meowth or Oddish, etc., would be genderless as well. According to link, there are only 74 Pokémon with visible gender differences, including Nidoran.
    Or if you add all the Pokémon that can only have one gender, that makes 101 Pokémon total where you can tell its gender by just looking at it. And that makes even less sense as to why are some Pokémon without gender differeces genderless, but others aren't.
    I explain it this way: Most Pokémon that are genderless are either machine-like, legendaries, or Ditto. Ditto was already explained, machines can't have a gender whatsoever, and legendaries are something like a 'higher thing' which means if genders would be sorted by stereotype strength, genderless (or the one that has both genders) would be the strongest, which legendaries of every region are considered to be. Can also be explained by saying that they are something too high to be bothered with (for them) unimportant things such as genders.


    --------------------------

    Why do you need a pokémon to carry you on the water when all other people in the game can swim on their own?

    And why are some things just impossible in the games? I know making them possible would make lots of work for the creators, but what if there had to be an explanation to this that would make sense in-game?
    How would they explain that
    -you can't climb on trees (unless there's a secret base up there)
    -you can't jump in the water
    -you can't climb through fences from any sides, but only from one
    -why can't you simply climb through one of these tiny trees that can be CUT
    -etc.

    And some non-sense stuff which I saw on the Prof. Oak demotivators:
    -you catch a Pokémon in the middle of the ocean; it now can't swim until you get a HM to teach it
    -You get Charmander, my grandson gets Squirtle, Bulbasaur stays on my desk forever
    -Your level 100 Charizard can't burn that tree; but your level 5 Oddish can cut it.
    -A ball that is able to capture and hold live creatures at a sub atomic level: 6 Poké. A bike: 999999Poké.
    -Your backpack can fit hundreds of empty PokéBalls, but only six full ones.
    -the greatest Pokémon professor in the world, doesn't know his neighbour's gender and his grandson's name. (Well, that one was at least fixed in gen3)
    -the greatest Pokémon profesor, but he only has 3 Pokémon (where are all the others?)

    I don't like gen5.I'm not a nostalgic freak who can't accept new things;when gen2 came out,I didn't even notice it was new.When gen3 came out,I thought "new Pokémon already??"but I tried to learn as much as possible.When gen4 came out,I was like "Cool, but evolutions of older Pokémon look ugly.Which starter would I pick?"When all gen5 Pokémon were revealed,I was disappointed.
    Oh yeah; when gen 6 came out, I was disappointed too, but then it started to revive my faith in the future of pokemon.

    Why can the hero(you) only say "Yes" and "No"?

    This goes for PMD too.You always talk in your mind and you only actually talk when you're dying.

    I like how some of the Swimmers actually make fun of the fact that you're using a Pokemon instead of swimming on your own.

    Torkoal is slow, Tailow is fast. And the flee calculation means it is less likely for a slow Pokemon to escape from a fast Pokemon.

    ...well, the various bodies of water ARE teeming with Water Pokemon, including two different types of jellyfish (Tentacool/cruel and Frillish/Jellicent) and pirhanas (Carvanha and maybe Basculin...I'm not sure what Basculin are supposed to be, but they LOOK like pirhanas to me), not to mention sharks (Sharpedo), any of whom could assume you to be hostile.

    I wouldn't want to swim in those waters...

    How come Gyarados can learn Bite and Ice Fang but can't learn Crunch, Thunder Fang or Fire Fang? And the "many water types can learn ice moves" argument doesn't work here because Gyarados learns Thunderbolt, Thunder and a variety of fire moves.

    Also, how is it POSSIBLE to use a Charmander while Diving or to use a Golem while Surfing? Wouldn't they, like, you know, die?

    It's actually shown in FRLG what happens. You give the money to the trainer/drop money against a wild Pokemon and run to the Pokemon Center.

    Thank you. It makes more sense than the blacking out in other games.

    FRLG was more "cinematic." When you started up the game it shows the five things you did last before saving, like a "Last time on FireRed..."
    When your last Pokemon faints, the screen fades out and says "<Trainer name> rushed to the Pokemon Center, protecting his Pokemon from further harm" or something like that. Then you just start where the nurse is saying "We'll restore your Pokemon to full health."

    I'd rather say the opposite, at least for the older PMD games.
    I mean, if you talk in your mind, other Pokémon couldn't respond to what you're saying.. Except Gardevoir and maybe Ninetales.

    You know, theres a comic ive read, called Pokemon-X, that comes up with some ideas about stuff like that, and basically makes fun of the stuff being discussed in this, the stuff that doesnt make sense.
    You can visit it by going to:
    http://pokemonx.comicgenesis.com/
    Dont know if anyone would want to visit it, but i thought id put it out there in case anyone wants to

    Just because nobody said anything about doesn't mean nobody noticed. Nobody had anything to say about it; you're stating facts that aren't really disputable.

    However, about your last point, this is the quote from the games:

    So he did have a lot of Pokemon, but he either released them, or gave them away, or they died or something.

    And while the third starter does remain on the desk in the final version, there is code for a Prof. Oak battle, and one of his Pokemon is the fully evolved form of the starter not chosen. So originally they were going to have Prof. Oak raise the last one and battle you with it.
