One question: Why did the Japanese decide to use Magnemites instead of Patrats or other death fodder?

1) Magnemite can have Magnet Pull, making it easier to catch more of them.
2) To not get lost in the idiots asking for Lv9 legendaries for their Patrats.
3) The symbolism, man!

I've been naming mine after famous scientists, politicians, fictional characters and historical figures. Just a few examples:

-Bill Nye
-Sam Harris
-Dan Dennett
-Dawkins
-Hawking
-Barack (after President Obama)
-Joe Biden
-Greg Brady

If you get one with one of those names and a location of Alabama, United States, it's probably mine~

I've gotten one called All-Mite-y before. He's still in my box since he came with Pokerus.

Mine had Pokerus and a Master Ball. :)

Alright, I've officially released all my PartyTime! Magnemites into the Coil.

On an unrelated note, the only nicknamed ones I have are Auron, Zio and some Japanese one. All the others are "Magnemite." -__-

C'mon, guys! This is a PAR-TAY! Stop being boring!

Huh? You want a signature?
Meh, I'll think of one tomorrow.
