    Gyarados is a flying type that can only bounce and yet Doduo and Dodrio can learn fly despite having no wings.

    In Japanese, Drowzee's name is literally Sleep (it even caused the Dub team to make an error on the episode Hypno's Naptime)

    i knew that one. this is because the name for fly in japan is glide and since ostriches can glide (see expressio the ostrich in donkey kong country) dudrio can easily 'glide"

    Dragonite's Pokédex entry from FireRed:

    It can fly in spite of its big and bulky physique. It circles the globe in just 16 hours.
    Dragonite only has 80 Base Speed. This means a Feebas (also 80 Base Speed) could also make it around the world in 16 hours, as could Grumpig (80) or Taillow (85).

    Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Reshiram and Zekrom all have the exact same base stats (a 150, two 120s, two 100s and a 90), just arranged differently. As of Black and White, Rayquaza is the only Dragon-typed version mascot that doesn't have this stat distribution.

    The same is true of the Kanto and Johto starters, except Charizard and Typhlosion, who share the exact same stats.

    when the game told me your pokemon can't attack when all moves are out of PP then i found out about the type-less move struggle.
    whoops! i posted this in the wrong thread i meant it to go into the "wait. what? moments" thread.

    Dialga, mascot of Diamond, is Steel/Dragon. Reshiram, mascot of Black, is Dragon/Fire.
    Palkia, mascot of Pearl, is Water/Dragon. Zekrom, mascot of White, is Dragon/Electric.
    Giratina, mascot of Platinum, is Ghost/Dragon. Kyurem, supposed mascot of Gray, is Dragon/D... Ice. So much for that. Perhaps ironically though, it is the only one with a non-dragon type that hits its counterpart for Super Effective damage.

    I had never noticed these at all, had to look these up after I read it!

    The reason Gastly and Diglett can get Sucker Punch without having arms is because its Japanese name directly translated is "Surprise Attack."

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but...

    There are many instances where Diglett is implied to have claws, including learning Scratch, Cut, Slash, and even Aerial Ace.

    Even though Reshiram's tail is supposedly based on an electric turbine, it bears greater resemblance to an afterburner.

    After the initial opening of the English GTS, a Cofagrigus from an English language game couldn't be traded without a nickname. This was due to language censors picking up on a potentially offensive word ("fag") in it's name. This filter has since been lifted however, and non-nicknamed Cofagrigus can be traded as usual.
