    Dunsparce Pokedex entry says that it is very big...but in the anime, it was small...



    I have officially claimed Mew (Pokemon), Poo (EarthBound) and EarthBound itself.

    So I'm not the only one who was surprised about Joltik's size? I thought it was much bigger than it really is.

    Watchog is taller than I thought (3'03), I thought he would be around 2 ft
    Tyranitar is smaller than I thought (6'07) I've always thought he would at least be 8ft

    Spinarak was a lot bigger than I thought it was. It's like the size of one's forearm! I thought it would be similar to Joltik...

    Did anyone find it weird that Arcanine and Samurott looked ALOT smaller in the B/W2 trailer.
    Arcanine 6'3
    Samurott 4'11
    Really, they look like they're in the 3 ft range

    Pretty much all Pokémon heights in the Pokédex surprise me, especially Charizard and such which aren't much higher than a 10 year old.

    Oh yeah, and Joltik.

    i was surprised by the fact that venusaur and tropius are the same height.

    Dunsparce. It seems a small Pokemon, but actually it is big (14'11" or 1,5 m). However, in the anime it was designed to be smaller (smaller than Pikachu, which is 1'04" or 0,40 m).

    Even Bulbapedia mentions that in the Trivia: In the anime, Dunsparce is usually shown to be much shorter than 5 feet, which is its listed height (or in this case, length) in the games.
    It is also shown as much smaller than its listed height in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, being even smaller than Pikachu.

    I've always wondered that...It's probably size/graphical limitations...nah, it would've been as big as Enkas (around 6ft)

    Honchkrow. For some reason I was imagining it as this big, terrifying bird.
    Turns out to come up to, eh, maybe the waist.
    And Infernape isn't even four feet tall, and yet in the anime, if I'm not mistaken, isn't it bigger than Ash?

    No one mentioned Bellossom yet. Bellossom is the sister of Vileplume, and you'd expect Bellossom to be around the same size as Vileplume, maybe a bit smaller, maybe even bigger. But at 1 ft 4 inches, it's not even the size of an Oddish.


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    I thought the dragon-types were bigger than they actually are. They're bloody short >.>

    And the Regis! I definitely thought they'd be bigger... Regirock is barely two inches taller than I am (I'm 5' 5") and Regice is not much taller

    I think the funniest misconception is when people compare the size of Pokemon to Ash. Ash is not a full grown man. He's ten.

    Another thing is some seem to not notice that a Pokemon's height could mean either actual height or it could mean length. I assume it is whichever is more dominant.

    Next, we need to think realistically in terms of size. These Pokemon are probably a little bigger than their animal counterparts but there aren't many creatures that are 6 million feet tall which is what everyone assumes is the height of most legendaries for some reason.

    Finally, regarding the anime, most seem to think that "This Pokemon is only this tall but is shown to be this big on the show." The heights and weights listed in the Pokedex are confirmed averages. Not every single Pokemon of the same species are the exact same height and weight. This is proven when we see Ash's Krabby/Kingler next to Gary's Krabby/Kingler. Gary's is significantly larger than Ash's.

    Seviper's height surprised me. 8'10'' ft tall, oh lawdy.

    Also, look at Luvdisc. You'd think it would be around a foot, but it's twice of that. 2'00'' ft tall, wow. It didn't look like that at all in the games, 3D games, or anime.

    Roselia. I remember my reaction when I found out that thing was only around 1 foot tall, especially given it was sometimes portrayed in the anime to be coming up to the waist height of an average age Trainer.

    This may sound odd, but I was actually somewhat surprised by the size of Uxie, Azelf and Mespirit. Sure, they're commonly viewed as pixies, but I always imagined them to be a bit bigger.
