Good/Bad/WTF? Dex Entries

    Grimer were created from the X-rays of the moon.Grimer were created from the X-rays of the moon.I need to make a list on how utterly moronic and non-nonsensical it is,even with the different laws of physics that the Pokemon universe uses

    1.Even in fiction,mutations almost never happen with X-rays.Its normally a gamma ray burst,like how the Hulk came about.X-rays are meant to see through stuff.Its like saying having the light on will cause you to get sunburn(which is due to UV rays)
    2.The moon DOES NOT work that way.It reflects light.It doesn't emit light.Also,since when does it reflect or emit X-rays?
    3.Ignoring the above,let's just say that the moon emits X-rays.If its capable of creating life,it would have the power to screw around with life here!Grimers wouldn't be the only species!

    The only way this could be explained is if there are aliens living on the moon,who shot a laser to a specific pile of sludge.Creating Grimer because,well,SCIENCE!

    LOL!!!!!!

    Also Haunter's dex entry makes me laugh. "if you feel stared at, alone, in the dark, then it's probably Haunter" That isn't scientific at all -__-

    It didn't kill Starkiller when made that leap of faith in TFU2, so why should it kill a 6'7" kung-fu chicken?

    AmusedMilk Oh, hey, Big Zam!

    Metagross Sapphire Entry:
    "Metagross is the result of two Metang achieving fusion. When hunting, this Pokémon pins the prey to the ground under its massive body. It then eats the helpless victim using the large mouth on its stomach."

    This is why I like Metagross so much.

    Frillish's Black entry:
    "With its thin, veil-like arms wrapped around the body of its opponent, it sinks to the ocean floor."

    This is terrifying to someone who has a fear of the deep sea.

    Blaziken can apparently jump over a 30 story building. At it's weight and stature, the landing from that would kill it.

    wow why even do it

    ENTEI.

    Volcanoes erupt when it barks. Unable to restrain its extreme power, it races headlong around the land. ----> Entei embodies the passion of magma. It is thought to have been born in the eruption of a volcano. It blasts fire that consumes all that it touches.

    Oh my god, that is fucking scary.

    Remmie Here I go!

    I agree with you.

    Golurk

    It flies around the sky at Mach speeds. Removing the seal on its chest makes its internal energy go out of control.

    Iron man style, plus it learns fly. Thats a bit odd.
     
  11. noobers

    It's base speed is 55. >_>
     
  12. JJDalts

    JJDalts Tobi is a good boy!

    Speaking of speed, how about Escavalier's dex entry?

    'They fly around at high speed, striking with their pointed spears.'

    It's base speed is 20.

    You wanna try again there Gamefreak?

    iv'e wanted to contact the nintendo people to tell them that some of their pokedex entries suck, and to give them some of my ideas, but i think all i would get back is a form letter

    if that was true, then the entire game would be one huge lava pit. the people who make these really have to think about this stuff

    when entei barks, a volcano erupts.

    entei is born when a volcano erupts.

    Entei learns roar at lvl 15

    i KNEW Nintendo was filled with pedobears!!!

    According to the Pokedex,Garchomp is capable of flight.It cannot use Fly,or any flying-type moves.It doesn't even have wings.Even Golurk could have a method of flight-rocket boots.Garchomp,however,does not.The same goes for Doduo,especially since its based on a bird that CAN'T fly.Another odd thing is that,apparently,Macgargo has a body temperature of 18,000 F.That's hotter than the surface of the sun.At that point the Pokemon wouldn't be molten,it would be made of vapor

    Duskull's Black and White Pokedex entry is pretty creepy...

    "It loves the cry of children. It startles bad kids by passing through walls and making them cry." o_O
     
  18. Paradoxe

    Paradoxe not actually psychic

    Chimchar's pokedex entry begins with:
    Its fiery rear end is fueled by gas made in its belly.

    Monferno's pokedex entry ends with:
    Its fiery tail is but one weapon.

    Never take a Monferno to an Indian restaurant.

    AuraChannelerChris "Danger is dangerous."

    Lies, Cynthia's Garchomp is capable of flight!

    ...In the anime. Check Losing Its Lustrous.

    I was about to point out it said that the Magikarp had to live for many years, but then in the second entry it says "never" so it still contradicts itself.
