250 pokemon

That awkward moment when you're not sure whether they're omitting Celebi or Mew.

and why does mewtwo come before mew?

Because Mew wasn't revealed to exist until quite a while after the game's release. People were supposed to believe that Mew wasn't catchable in-game, but Mewtwo was.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Salamence is quadruped. It goes by the same measurement as a snake.
Unless Venusaur is as tall from foot to flower as Mewtwo is from foot to head (which I seriously doubt given how huge Mewtwo is).

What makes you think Salamence is measured like a snake?

And I don't see what's so weird about Venusaur being six feet tall. Most of its height is the stem, anyway.

None of you know of this fact.

Not sure if joke or just usual DYKG crap

Feraligatr's and Victreebel's names had to cut out a letter due to the ten character limit for a name; A vowel between 'T' and 'R', and 'L' respectively.

Butterfree was originally Venonat's evo (look at the eyes and those antenna things)

Our character's father is only ever met in Ruby and Sapphire as the normal type gym leader; in the other games he is mention but never seen, or not even mentioned.

Spinarak is not a spider. It only has six legs!

Even though Flying is a common secondary type among Bug-type Pokémon, the only Bug-type Pokémon that can learn the move Fly, Volcarona and Genesect, are not Flying types. (POKEMON LOGIC)

Rotom is located in the National Dex right before the Lake Trio. Interestingly, although not known to share any relation to them, Rotom shares the same weight and height as Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf. That's why some fans speculate that Rotom is a digitized version of the Lake Trio created by scientists

Raikou entei and suicune are reincarnated versions of jolteon flareon and vaporeon who died in the fire in burnt tower and ho-oh revived them
They share the same shiny colors and ability (dream world)
The kimono girls also live in that same city
I preordered y because I am predicting it will be a billion times better than x
I'm sticking with this sig until they come out

Exeggutor was a version exclusive for Red Version. You could not evolve Exeggcute in Blue Version.

My completed Pokédex in Blue says otherwise. :P

Not sure how well known though interesting to note.

The Pokémon Manaphy has never been given out through an event for the main series games. It is exclusive to the Pokémon Ranger spinoff series, but can be transferred to Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum because the spinoff series could communicate with the main series games.
