    Yes, I understand this. Although I never see them compare snakes to the trainer under the "Height Comparison" part of the game's Dex, I imagine that some like Arbok would be shown to be very huge compared to how big it's supposed to be if you use the Hoenn Dex (I used Hoenn's as an example because I don't know if Unova's have a "Height Comparison" feature). (Veekun's Dex shows that snakes are conspicuously large compared to the trainer, but then again, it's a fan site)

    Thanks for reading.
    Veekun's dex entry measures from the bottom of the sprite to the top of the sprite. I believe the old game's size comparison actually makes adjustments for serpents as I don't recall things like Dratini being oversized (despite being 6 feet "tall")

    I think the size it right...

    The only thing I noticed in the anime that was different when it comes to size was when they placed Joltik on to the battlefield. Pretty small.

    Yeah. Anyone remember Lt. Surge? Jeepers that guy was huge! XD
    He would be about as tall as Zekrom in the anime!

    This remembers me of Dunsparce in anime.
    Very tiny, but in the games it is supposed to be huuuge.

    I like Reshiram more in the game size.
    Anyone knows if Dialga is really giant as in the movie or it is smaller in the game like Reshiram?

    I follow the game logic, so in my eyes the anime's the one that's wrong.
    In that movie about Jirachi, the Fake Groudon is a giant 10 story high monster. But the Pokédex says it's only around 9'9, 3 meters.

    Pokédex height / weight are unreliable, even in the game. There was a fishing contest or something where someone would measure your fish Pokémon... if Pokémon were bound by the sizes listed in their Pokédex then there'd be no reason to measure them. Also, its just common sense... animals always have height differences in real life.. why should Pokémon be any different? The Pokédex measurements are probably just how it is on average.
    But that doesn't explain Reshiram since there's only one of him in existance so the average and his personal height would be the same.

    The sizes of the tao trio are some of the few sizes the show has gotten right. And I personally don't mind them being so small compared to others like Dialga or Groudon. The tao trio aren't as "special" as some of the other more god like legendaries, so in order to give of that impression, I think Game Freak made the right choice in making them 9-11ft tall.
