How do you feel when the anime contradicts game mechanics?

    Thankfully the latter has been fixed since we saw a baby Lugia in Johto, which means that the mom Lugia obviously mated.

    Nurse Joy's Latias, Tobias's Latios, and Movie 5 Latios and Latias are surely all different.
    Tobias's Darkrai, Movie 8 Darkrai, the Darkrai in the DP filler and the Darkrai in the XY filler again are surely all different.
    Mewtwo and Newtwo again are different.
    Many more examples of there being more than 1 version of certain Legendary Pokemon in the anime. God-like Legendaries like Arceus, Creation Trio, Aura Trio and Weather Trio I can understand there being only 1 but for others I'm certain multiple versions exist.

    People still griping about Thunder Armor above? It was basically self-activated Guts with colored feathers.

    Then why was Pikachu shrouded in it too.

    Why was it golden.

    Probably using the same logic that DP did Paul had Chimchar's moves be powered up by tanking Fire Type Moves during the Tag Battle Arc. Thunder is golden so they turn golden. Duh ;)

    Swellow can't absorb electricity. It also didn't seem paralysed.

    What's the limit for the number of moves Pokémon should be able to know at the same time without that being broken?

    I hate game mechanic inconsistencies in the show like when type advantages get ignored whenever it suits the plot. It's annoyingly situational.

    I feel relatively unfazed and this because of the same reasons why I'm unfazed about most of the other things the anime doesn't do right.

    I don't watch the anime with the games in mind, so whenever there's a divergence between in-game mechanics and what occurs on-screen, I tend to ignore it. The anime's more enjoyable for me that way.

    One of thing that annoys me about this is when the it contradicts the game some of the time and yet some of the time will apply and be specifically mentioned. For example when Hyper Beam has a recharge time some of the time but not always. It makes the previous episodes where they specifically make mentions of it working precisely like that make little sense.

    In order to prove that "It is consistent," we need to work within some other...

    The Hyper Beam recharge inconsistency is kind of irksome, as is the Solar Beam charge time, which barely seems to be a thing these days. But that's just one of those things that was likely changed to make the attacks more convenient in the anime.
