Not a Pokemon, but I have trouble thinking of Bite as a Dark type move. When I think about a Pokemon learning Bite, I always expect a Normal type move to come up. --- Now playing: Pokemon Red (Black/White), The Beatles: Rock Band, Earthbound (1.5x enemy stats/hard mode hack)
It's not related to types, but I always do a double-take when I use Grass-type moves and activate Sap Sipper. For some reason I'm still not used to a Grass immunity.
^ This. I got suckered by Sap Sipper three times before I realized I wasn't doing anything. Probably distracted by TV. --- "A day may come when the courage of men fails... but it is not this day." - Aragorn
Let's see. I didn't realize that the first two Nidos are pure poison type, and that only Niodking and Nidoqueen are Ground/Poison. That would explain why Surf wasn't SE.
I'd been playing a lot of Yellow recently, so when I switched to Crystal, I forgot that my Croconaw could beat Morty up easily with Bite. (I still thought that Bite was Normal-type.)
i sorely wished that Magnemite was part Steel in Yellow as I had Double Kick Niodrino, but alas, it was only Electric.
I was pissed to find out that Gust was Normal type in Gen I, so I ditched Pidgey because it would only learn a decent Flying type attack at Level 28 (if i allowed it to evolve, Pidegot wouldn't learn it until Level 33). Meanwhile, the Level 10 Spearow I just caught already had Peck on it. --- Platinum FC: 0475 0911 6895 Name: Cassie Diamond FC: 3266 7471 2175 Name: Judith
And I keep thinking that Steel type moves are super effective against Water. I can't help myself... --- "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" I say the egg, because it is a breakfast food. People who agree: 28
Drapion tends to fake me out, as do the two fossil Pokemon from Gen3. I can never remember their second typing, even though it's not exactly subtle (grass for the sea lily, bug for the proto-arthropod). For the longest time, I also thought Suicune was Ice and not Water, for some strange reason: probably accidental conflation of the Beast Trio with the Bird Trio. --- All above is completely true and accurate, unless it isn't.
I have never had a hard time keeping Pokemon's types straight-- until Gen 5. I keep thiking the Gothitelle line is a group of DARK types, not psychic. I thought it was a counterpart to the Solosis line (since one is found in White and the other in Black). I thought they had a Dark type in one and a Psychic type in the other. But no. I have been consistently wrong. D:
