    Default Did You Know?

    This is a thread to share interesting Trivia about the games, the regions and the characters. This thread is not for personal experiences, it's for general facts, like if a Pokemon learns (or doesn't learn) a specific move, or the origins of someone's name, or under leveled Pokemon.

    Here's one! Sinnoh is the first, and currently only, region lacking a Dragon specialist.

    Kanto: Lance
    Johto: Clair (and Lance, but Indigo Plateau is in Kanto)
    Hoenn: Drake
    Sinnoh: None
    Unova: Drayden/Iris (Though Iris only uses half a team of dragons as Champion)
    Kalos: Drasna

    Though Cynthia uses Garchomp, and Draco Meteor was introduced. Dragon Tamers were also vastly more popular than in R/S.

    Here's something I learned right now: Using the move Magnet Rise can give the move Zap Cannon 100 percent accuracy. It happened to me while I was fighting Clemont's Magnezone at the Battle Chateau

    Good to know, because my Magnezone knows Magnet Rise and Zap Cannon.

    On a different note, did you guys know your 'fashion' in Lumiose City maxes out if you go to the Pokeball shop and buy Luxury Balls one at a time?

    -Apparently, according to a translation of the writing on Ghetsis' and N's concept art, Ghetsis is 200 cm (6'7") and N is 180 cm (5'9"). Maybe it only seems this way to me because I'm pretty short irl, but 6'7" is giant!

    -Gold and Silver originally had the option of naming your mother, but this idea was later scrapped (leftover code for this function still exists, though).

    -Unused date for Shellos exists in RSE's code.

    - That in Pokemon Stadium one, that Fire Spin and Wrap could be easily escaped. Switching Pokemon negates the attack.
    - That in the early Mystery Dungeon games, Hunger was negated when switching the lead Pokemon.

    Speaking of giant people, AZ is based on the Wandering Jew stereotype. Floette is Jesus.

    This is probably an obvious one, but Latias and Blaziken were originally supposed to be one in the same.

    Also, Kanto technically has two Ground gyms, due to every gym trainer and the leader in Brock's gym all have a ground type Pokemon.

    Shinies are just a palette swap. If its not bred well, don't use it.

    -Leaf technically has no canonical name.

    -BW had antiwar messages. Not sure where, the place Bulbapedia cited was all in Japanese.

    -In the original Japanese BW2, Ghetsis tells Kyurem to KILL YOU. They changed it to "freeze" for obvious reasons.

    "Sound moves" hit through Substitutes as of Gen VI.

    I didn't know until it happened during a battle over PSS. My Pyroar used Hyper Voice on a Reuniclus, only to hit through the Substitute to KO it. I'd honestly thought it was a glitch, but the other person (who I was talking to over DA) didn't say anything about it after the battle and I just assumed they didn't notice. O_O

    To be honest, I think it makes sense; a substitute is made to take a hit so the user doesn't have to. But since a Sound move doesn't physically (or specially, I guess) make some sort of contact with the Pokemon, it makes sense that it would go through the Substitute.

    Whitney's gym is shaped like a Clefairy.
    Clefairy is now a Pure Fairy type.
    Whitney has a gym that NOW would be better suited for another type.
    HA.
    Normal Types ARE MY FAVORITE

    Same thing that happened with poor Sableye. Fairy type is super effective against Dark and Ghost doesn't resist it.

    The Fairy type is super effective against Dark now.

    Did you know that Bertha and Agatha might be related? Shauntal makes a reference to that in B2/W2.
