Pokemon that confused you

    Are there any Pokemon that confuse you or used to confuse you? When I first saw Groudon, I thought it was a fire type. And when I first saw Azurill, I assumed it was a water type.

    ^ I too thought that Groudon was a fire type and Azurill was water.

    I also used to think that Psyduck was based off of a duck, but ever since I started to watch the show Phineas and Ferb, I now think it's a platypus.

    ..Your signature made me chuckle.

    I never understood what Bronzong actually looked like.. the same thing happened to me with Hariyama. Also, I used to think that Donphan was a first gen poke and that Phanpy was a GSC baby. Lul.

    ^ in the same way people assumed you could get togepi in red and blue? haha.

    another one I didn't know was that carvanha evolves into sharpedo. I thought they were just closely related species like huntail and gorebyss.

    Froslass confuses me.

    At first Ii thought it was just a normal old looking human-shaped Pokemon but it's back sprite looked weird and I still don't know what's up with it.

    I thought Lucario was a phsychic type.

    Before I played R/S I assumed Volbeat & Illumise were dual Bug/Electric types. I am still disappointed they are not b/c I think that wld help them stand out a bit more. Maybe they'll get evos one day and gain the Electric type and be considered more than just another lame insect.
    I feel sorry for a lot of the bugs. Only a handful (Scizor, Heracross) get used in competitive battling, the rest are doomed to obscruity.

    I always thought Psyduck and Golduck should be part psychic type, and it surprised me when I found out they weren't. And I thought Sudowoodo was grass type. I also thought Wobbuffet was water type (because I got it mixed up with Quagsire). I never knew Cacturne was also dark type, and I agree with the Groudon/Azurill thing.

    Good god, for the longest time I had absolutely no idea what type sudowoodo was. I thought it was some crazy wood type (which I believe should exist).

    Also, during the reign of the first gen, I didn't comprehend type effectiveness past fire water and grass. I used water attacks against Bruno because he had onix, but I wondered why Machamp or Hitmonlee weren't weak to it. It wasn't until the third gen I decided to look into it because of ludicolo. The fact that it was a water grass type and didn't take more or less damage from fire confused me.

    Oh, and Dunsparce's face always confused me. It looks cuter in my way of looking at it.

    Back when Lunchables did their first promotion for pokemon with the "stamps" a few weeks after the release of Red and Blue, I always used to confuse Mewtwo and Meowth.

    I laughed.

    On a serious note

    When i saw an aerodactyl get hit with an electric attack, that really confused me,

    then i figured out electric can hit rock, just not ground.


    though this was years ago

    I used to think Shuckle was a water type.

    I was sadly mistaken >_>'

    I had the same thing with aerodactyl I sent it out against an electric, it got 1HKO, i was sad.
    I used to think that it was ghost that was weak against ground, got a shock when I met a misdreavus for the first time.

    * Is surprised no one said Mawile*
    Mawile always confused me when I had Sapphire because I never saw its backface.
    *Gives self points for using the word backface in context, on Serebii*

    I remember using an electric attack on a Sudowoodo that I was trying to catch in Silver. I thought since it was a rock type, it wouldn't do to much damage, it fainted.

    I just sort of assumed that rock would resist rock. I didn't realize that rock wasn't nearly as resistant as it seems like it should be.
