    Idk if I said this before, but Victini is a representation of the greek Goddess Nike, who proclaimed Victory as her own. This also hints that if there's another Mystery Dungeon game, Victini could be a female.

    Mew wasn't intended by game developers to exist. In Red & Blue, good ol' Morimoto programmed it in as a prank. It was discovered through a glitch and ended up becoming popular and widely accepted.

    Spoink will die if it stops moving because it's heart is pumped when it bounces.

    No, it inhales a lot of air, and becomes a balloon.

    - Bulbasaur used to be the first Pokemon in national Pokedex order back when poison was weak to bug, but that title now belongs to Charizard.

    - Treecko has the highest speed out of all of the first forms of a starter.

    a pikachu has no wings and it flies doesn't it? It flies through the same method a jiggltpuff would...the little birds are just response to the "pokemon under 12 pounds" argument...

    In several Pokedex entries, it is stated Umbreon sweats poison as a defense but it is not a Poison type and the only poison type move it can learn is Toxic through a TM. Luxio is stated in several Pokedex entries to use claws but they can't learn Slash, Scratch, or any variation of them. What the heck?

    They tried to parody him, but they could only make a play on the name

    Do you know you can soft reset for the trainers in Nimbasa Stadium (both the big one and the small one)?

    Which means you can get up to 7 Rare Candies per week just from the Stadium, by SR-ing until that one Nursery Aide appears.

    Hey guys, take a look at this!

    Deino, Zweilous and Hydreigon's names are based on "one, two, three" in German.

    I couldn't get their names right until I discovered this:

    Deino (Die-no)

    Zweilous (Zvi-lous)

    Hydreigon (Hi-drey-gon)

    Pikachu flies via balloon travel.

    Now that i did a tiny bit of research, Yellow's pikachu does actually use fly in the manga, but as far as im aware it's still by balloons.

    Ok, i guess jigglypuff can fly then. Sorry if i wasted anyone's time.

    Despite its HG/SS dex entry stating it can support a grown human in flight, Yanmega cannot learn Fly.

    Despite lacking feet, Dusknoir can legitimately know Mega Kick.

    Despite a large portion of its in-game animation showing it spinning rapidly, Ferroseed cannot learn Rapid Spin.

    Doduo and Dodrio can learn Steel Wing, despite apparently lacking actual wings. Conversely, Clefairy and Clefable, both of whom DO have wings, can't learn Steel Wing or Wing Attack.

    Despite most of its Generation III dex entries praising its sense of smell, Weedle cannot learn Odor Sleuth.

    Despite its diet of rotten garbage, and the fact that the move requires the spewing of garbage at the foe, Koffing and Weezing cannot learn Gunk Shot.

    Despite other snake Pokémon being able to do so, Serperior can't learn Earthquake.

    Forretress is the only bug type to learn zap canon after it stopped being a tm.

    Golbat is almost as big as Crobat, but only Crobat can learn Fly.
