#1Tatakai-No-KamiPosted 1/9/2014 11:32:26 AM
wailord is only 47 feet.
blue whales can exceed 100 feet.

girafarig is 4'11'' (WTF)
giraffes can reach 20 feet

tyrantrum is 8 feet
tyrannosaurus rex was up to 40 feet

trevenant is 4'11''
go outside and go to a park right now. i promise you will find a tree that is much taller than you are.

Yeah you know, it's surprising how small their Official sizes are compared to how they appear in the Anime.

But I guess that's why they call them Pocket Monsters.

Meanwhile, Linoone is only 0.5 meters tall yet somehow weighs 32.5 kilograms.

they are an asain animal thing. The average height for a asain is what 5 foot? So nidoking is just as tall as them. Which is alot scarier then a 5 foot pissed of lizard. So add 1/6 more feet to every animal for us

btw t-rex is 40feetlong, 13 feet tall at hips

Wailord is disappointingly tiny in battle mode. It's a bit better in amie.

Either way it beats having a Walking Pokemon wailord in HGSS.

I wanted to say that this is sorta racist, but it makes a lot of sense when you put it like that. I'm sure it's not the only reason, because they should have fixed it with newer Pokemon when it became an international sensation, but that is a pretty interesting point that you're making.

You got a few of the measurements mixed up. The Tyrannosaurus was 40ft in length. It's height was roughly 13ft. Some Pokemon in the game are taller than a T-Rex.

i didnt mix up anything. it stands to reason that mass is what constitutes size for animals.

that is why we dont go around saying the giraffe is the largest land animal, because despite being taller, elephants have much more mass.

thus, when stating measurements of length/height, whichever is bigger is what the animal is usually known for

if i posted weight measurements for pokemon, things would get even more crazy.

it's long. like a snake. many snakes are heavy (not that linoone is a snake, but it's shaped like one)
