Even though Magnetmite, Magneton, and Magnezone are always shown floating off the ground in the anime and the games the don't have the ability Levitate.
So how do they get hit by Earthquake, the world may never know.

Pokémon Gold and Silver started the trend of having legendary Pokémon as mascots, and the trend of using types of jewelry or precious metals as names.

Copies of Pokémon Gold and Silver typically lose the ability to save after a period of about seven years, due to the internal battery running dry (this is due to the constantly-running clock). However, the battery is replaceable with another one of the same kind, although replacing it will reset the game's data. The problem appears less often with Pokémon Crystal.
My silver is ~9 years old, i don't have any problems with it :/

You do mean Flail, not fail, right? Lol.

Nincada is the only Pokémon with a gender that can learn TMs and HMs but cannot learn Attract or Captivate.
Thats because it isn't very attractive. XD

This has probably been said before I think but from G/S/C until ow Nidorina and Nidoqueen can STILL not breed.

Mew = genderless. End of story.

Dusknoir has a face on his belly, and is one out of three that has an "alternate face" (Scizor with its claws with "eyes" on it and Ariados with the marks on its back).
Um arbok and masquirain

I said this one page ago. Copycat. >_>

Not counting Porygon2 (for obvious reasons), Togetic was the last Jhoto Pokémon to appear in the anime while Ho-Oh was the first. About a 317 episode gap.
 
Unown is the only pokemon that can only learn 1 attack. Unless I missed something.
You can count Smeargle. Technically it's only move it learns is Sketch. (but Sketch allows it to copy other moves.) If you don't count Smeargle, then theres Metapod, Kakuna, Silcoon, and Cascoon. Not counting Iron Defense.

Edit: Ah yes, Ditto. I forgot the little guy. Thankyou shaq-attack for reminding me, I knew I was forgeting something.

So Pokemon like Muk, Koffing, Venomoth, and Anorith are attractive?

Of every generation of starters, the Fire-type starters have the highest amount of dual-type fully evolved starters.
Fire = 3 (Charizard/Blaziken/Infernape)
Water = 2 (Swampert/Empoleon)
Grass = 2 (Venusaur/Torterra)

dragonite has never been consistant with its color in the generations.(II is brownish-yellow,III is yellowish, and IV is orange)

Kind of a big deal
pineco is the second most forgetten pokemon
The entire Porygon family says "Hi!"..
Xp....I don't think there really is any "forgotten" Pokemon... just that they aren't used as much. It's not like anyone ever went "ZOMG!?!? Where is Quilfish!!?!?"...or anything.

Anyways, Lickitung's sprites have only shown it without it's tongue once-in Emerald, but it was only for one frame of it's animation. Coincidentally, the Diamond and Pearl sprite is the only one with Lickitung's tongue not curved.

It's back sprite in all games has had it with it's arms in the air.

In DPt, when a pokemon has a power-weakening berry, it activates after the animation has occured.
However, in PBR, it activates before

Funny fact! The Abra, Chatot, Haunter and Magikarp you get from an in-game trade got their IVs either 15, 20 or 25. They can't suck, really.

As for Seedot, Plusle, Horsea and Meowth in Emerald, they got their IV's either 4 or 5. That sucks.

Well, Lickitung's tongue went in its mouth in Platinum's backsprite as well, I mentioned this a page ago as a fact.

Gengar can learn Strength and Rock Smash, despite Ghost's generally having the ability to not touch anything real, instead going through them.

Yay, 7000th post!
