Things in the Pokémon world which just don't make sense (by pokémon standards)

Well the anime is doophy and I prefer to ignore it in cases like this.

The episode where Brock actually says Water types are weak against Fire types... ╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
 
The whole Slowpoke evolution deal.

-Why does Roserade has poison whips but can't learn vine/power whip?
-Surely the daycare man knows where pokémon eggs come from, he must think that the most experienced trainer is five, or just senile. XD
-Why does the pokedex entry say that Samurott silence enemies by glaring and howling yet it can't learn leer, glare, or howl?
-How come Samurott is not water/fighting or water/steel, really gamefreak. Fire/Fighting is getting old.
-How come the baby Kangaskhan is not its own species of pokémon?
-Why does EVERYONE rely on the help of a kid to stop groups such as Team Rocket/Aqua/Plasma etc?
-Why is Gardevoir not part of the humanshape egg group but is part of THE AMPORUS GROUP? (Really imagine how things between Gardevoir/Muk/Weezing) O_O
-How come Wailord CAN BREED with Diglett!?
 
Water/Fighting make sense, but Water/Steel?
 
Its based off a Samurai, most of their weapons and armor are made of steel.

All the samurai are fighting types, with the exception of Pawniard/Bisharp

I always thought the Bisharp family were based off knights.

Because he doesn't know. Pokemon refuse to breed when they're being observed, so nobody really has any idea what Pokemon reproduction entails. A semi-popular theory that I subscribe to says that it's a process in which the two Pokemon share their energies in order to create an egg out of nothing, in a manner similar to that seen in the Arceus event, only on a non-cosmic scale. This theory rectifies two major issues; 1) Why does nobody know how Pokemon breed? and 2) How can a Skitty breed with a Wailord?

-How come the baby Kangaskhan is not its own species of pokémon?

Because it's just a small Kangaskhan, not a different Pokemon.

-Why does EVERYONE rely on the help of a kid to stop groups such as Team Rocket/Aqua/Plasma etc?

They don't rely on it; the kid just ends up getting entangled in the villainous team's plot and usually ends up in a position to bring them down.

-Why is Gardevoir not part of the humanshape egg group but is part of THE AMPORUS GROUP? (Really imagine how things between Gardevoir/Muk/Weezing) O_O

Because perhaps the Gardevoir you're seeing is an illusion. It is a Psychic-type, after all.

-How come Wailord CAN BREED with Diglett!?

See my first answer.

Fly it all away!
But then how do you know what item is in which capsule? Later on in the game when you've got upwards of thousands of items in multiple sections of your bags, how can you differentiate?

Same goes for Pokemon, really... if all your Pokemon are in the same type of Pokeballs, how do you know which member of your team you're sending out when you have six identical Pokeballs in front of you? Or as a trainer do you just... "know"?

Your player has an Identic memory and a bag like Hermine (however u spell it from harry potter) or Mary Poppin's Bag.

Pokémon can be caught by either surfing on the water or through fishing, yet they don't know "Surf". What do they do drown?

The fact that poison types are no longer super effective against bug types. Really whwn you think about it, we do use poisons to kill bugs.
