    See what I mean? Facts are just facts. Personally I think you should change the title to something along the lines of 'Interesting Pokemon Trivia'.
    It's quite obvious he means interesting tidbits of information not everybody might know. Don't be so nitpicky.

    For god's sake, Meowth, Vulpix, and Rattata all have the same thing. Are they squirrels?

    Suirtle is known for squirting water. "Squirt."
    Squirtle is based on a turtle. "Turtle."
    Squirt + Turtle = Squirtle.
    Is that so hard to believe? There is nothing to suggest they added squirrel in there too. Saying Squirtle is based on a squirrel is just ridiculous.

    I have an idea. Electabuzz is yellow with black stripes. It has "Buzz" in its name. My god, Electabuzz is based on a bumblebee.
    Formerly known as Jigglychu.

    That picture proves nothing.

    Squirtle is based on a sea turtle and the name stems from squirt and turtle, furthermore it's Japanese name is Zenigame which means pond turtle.

    It shares nothing with squirrel, which by the way don't have tail like Squirtle.

    A squirrel's tail and Squirtle's tail don't look similar at all.

    A squirrel's tail is flat and bushy whereas Squirtle's tail is neither flat or bushy.

    A squirrel's tail is often depicted in "cartoons" as rounded at the end much like a Squirtle's. They look nothing like an actual squirrel's tail.

    Who cares if Squirtle is part Squirrel or not...? Until GF comes out and says outloud that it is or isn't, we have no proof for either point.
    I do believe, though, it is Squirt + Turtle.
    Grammar is important. Good grammar is the difference between, "I'm helping my Uncle Jack off a horse." and "I'm helping my Uncle jack off a horse."
    So please, learn how to use it correctly.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone

    After saying that, the same applies with Haunter being taller than Gengar, as Gloom being bigger than Bellossom.

    Oddish is bigger than Bellossom too.

    Pawniard and Bisharp have both of the types that were introduced in gen. 2.
    Cryogonal can learn attract despite not having a gender.

    That's because Azurill's gender ratio is 75-25 (or 25-75, not sure)
    but Marill's is 50-50, so some male Azurill turn into female Marill when they evolve.

    Not really. "Height" is really length for snake-like Pokemon. That's why Arbok and Milotic has such high "heights."

    Azurill has a different gender ratio than Marill. 75% of Azurill are female, but only 50% of Marill are female. Since gender is determined by personality value, that means 33% of all female Azurill will change gender. This could be an oversight, but considering they've had 2 generations to change it and they haven't it may have been intentional to reference how some real animals can change gender under certain conditions.

    *Tangela could not learn Vine Whip in Gen I.

    They are NOT protozoa. They are protists. Protozoa only applies to animal-like protists such as amoebas and paramecia. So this isn't spam, in the first-generation games, attacks using a special damage formula, such as Seismic Toss, Sonicboom, Dragon Rage, etc., ignored the type chart completely, including immunities. So you could use Seismic Toss on a Gastly.
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon (because they're banned), I don't calculate stat values (the simulator does it for me), I don't use cheating devices (because I hardly ever play the actual game), I don't breed my way to perfection (because I use a simulator), and I do care about natures. I battle the most efficient way, so I can use my strategic skills to the fullest. I don't look down on others because of the way they play Pokemon, which non-competitive people seem to actually do more often. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

    Sealeo and (I think) Meditite.

    In the Pokémon Ultimate Handbook, Delibird is erroneously classified as a legendary Pokémon. That is freakin' funny.
