Maybe I'm just in outer space or something but has anyone ever thought a pokemon was in a different generation than it actually is?

I could have sworn up and down Magcargo was a Gen3 pokemon! I also recently kept thinking Roselia was a Gen4 pokemon..

It's sad considering I started playing since Gen.1 and all this time thought Magcargo was Gen3.. I have no idea why either. (Maybe because it was non-existent in G/S/C ?)

The only one that i sometimes get confused it Kecleon if it was Gen 2 or Gen 3. Smeargle as well.

I know whether a pokemon is from gen 3 or gen 4, but I usually can't remember which one. I get those two confused a lot. Never had a problem with anything from gen 1, 2, 5, or 6.

I don't think I've ever had this problem.

On a somewhat related topic, I appreciate that the terms "gen x" Pokemon are being used instead of Hoenn Pokemon, Sinnoh Pokemon, etc. It's really stupid when people describe Pokemon like Houndour as a "Johto Pokemon" when it doesn't even appear in Johto (outside of the Safari Zone).
YOU WANT SOME FUNERAL TO GO WITH THAT CAKE?
