    That... actually raises a fairly valid point. I mean, they theoretically have the intelligence and the thumbs necessary to do so. So maybe they can drive. But then, some Pokémon are shown to be pretty big, so it may not have been them under the pretense that they simply wouldn't be able to fit in the driver's seat. Either way, my mind is blown.

    In RS it's machoke instead, but maybe the human was just to lazy to get out of the van.

    Where did you think the Vigoroth/Machoke were riding? They couldn't all fit in the front seat. Obviously they were stored in Pokéballs on the belt of the person driving the truck. Why would the person need to bother to coming out of the truck anyway when they have Pokemon to do all the heavy lifting? Or maybe the mother was driving, didn't want to sit next to their child, so she put him/her with the furniture, and the Vigoroth were her husband's.

    Machoke is 4'11 and Vigoroth is 4'7 their only problem with a truck is trying to both use the pedals and see over the dash board at once.

    It's possible in theory, but I doubt they could do it; though they could handle the G-forces driving requires a lot of fine motor control, being cool under pressure, and quick decision making, which are skill associated with humans and therefore stuff I'm not sure they have.

    I wouldn't be surprised if auto racing was a frowned-upon sport only enjoyed by MotorStorm-esque fringe adrenaline junkies(to the extent high end sports cars might not exist); it's pretty much the antithesis of Pokemon Battling, being kinda antisocial as it's more about how well you can handle cars rather than forming a bond, having an element of danger because of barely tolerable high speeds, and creating a general ruckus from loud engines and such.

    Many Pokemon seem almost or more intelligent than the humans of the world (at least judging by the anime), and they can at least clearly take complex orders, so I wouldn't be surprised if some Pokemon are capable of driving. It's not like there's a lot of traffic in the Pokemon world except for coming in and out of Castelia City.

    I think Pokemon that are described as being intelligent such as Alakazam would be. Maybe some other humanoid Pokemon such as Hitmonchan as well. The fact that Hitmonchan are almost never found in the wild also can imply that it is intelligent and prefers to live with humans.

    I was on my commute home the other day and this crazy driver pulls out in front and slows down, I quickly hit the brake so I don't crash into him and then wait for an opening to overtake him, As I move to overtake him he speeds up so I can't. Eventually, after each of us have been struggling to get in front I signal him to pull over, he complies and we both pull over. I get out of my car and walk up to his window and yell: "What the hell are you doing you dick!?" He winds down his window sticks out his big ugly face and says:

    I always thought Pokemon were far more intelligent than animals in real life. Think about it: they can understand human speech (being able to understand complex battle commands in the anime) and can even be taught how to speak (Meowth is the perfect example, and he's self-taught!). Even then, despite most Pokemon being unable to speak, both trainer and Pokemon seem to know what the other is saying. Psychic Pokemon can communicate through telepathy.

    In the anime, there are several moments where Pokemon show higher-than-normal intelligence. Most recently, a wild Scrafty actually kidnapped Iris' Axew and held it for ransom to get them to cooperate. I'm sure there are some Pokemon that, given the correct training, could reasonably operate a motor vehicle.

    No need since most pokemon can outspeed a race car.

    If they're around the average human adult height, I guess it wouldn't be too difficult for an intelligent pokemon to drive. For instance, Gallade is 160cm, so he could hold the steering wheel and press the brakes at the same time - and he's also part Psychic-type, so he's got the right physical figure and intellect for driving. (Though I doubt he'd drive when he could simply Teleport himself away).

    Gallade will probably tear up the drivers seat with his elbow blades while steering.
