Zapdos=Zap and two
Moltres=MolTEN and three
Arbok backwards Kobra
Ekans backwards Snake
Satoshi got the idea of Pokemon from the fact that when he was a child he collected and captured bugs Pokeballs are based on the pods you put them in)
Jynx was origanlly black skinned put later was changed due to people thinking she was a raciast stereotype
The reason for Brocks absent was that poeple thought the viewers would find Brock as a stereotype
Shellos and Gastradon were meant to be in R/S/E but they couldnt get the game to read them as one Pokemon just with dif. forms
Meowth is based off of Satoshi's pet house cat
Pikachu wasnt orrigionally the mascot but was changed to it due to its increeasing popularity
Walking Pokemon in HG/SS came from the fact that the players Pikachu walked with you in Yellow version
Dent Pod and Corn have the least activity in the players game in Black and White

Yep! Original mascot was Clefairy.

Meowth's also based on the "beckoning cat" legend... But you can find all the origins in the Bulbagarden article "On the Origin of Species." It's cool awesome.gif Link to Meowth's. Links to the other articles are at the bottom.

I can't think of any atm, but I'll keep coming back here cat.gif

Being a Pokemon trivia nerd, I knew all of those except
QUOTE

because I didn't read Bulbapedia' Origin of Species article. :P

And yes, that design for "Latias" was originally meant for Gen 2, but when Gen 3 came around, they split it's design into the current Latias and Blaziken.

I love the Japanese. Apparently they discovered a new protein which helps carry electrical impulses from the eyes to the brain. They named it Pikachurin because the protein possesses "lightning-fast moves and shocking electric effects."

Hi.



Azurill have a 75% chance of being female while Marill and Azumarill have a 50% chance. Due to this, one of every three female Azurill evolve into a male Marill.

I find it weird that Nidorina can be male and Nidorino can be female, when their pre-evos can only be one gender. Also, Happiny can only be female, while Chansey has a chance of being male...I guess Pokemon have the ability to change genders when they evolve? XD

I don't find it disturbing at all.

I like your name btw.

The statistics are real. See, while Marill and Azumarill can be found in the wild, Azurill's a baby Pokemon so can technically only be around thanks to humans... Maybe the Sea Incense tends to make it easier for a female to be born.
But nothing's confirmed about this, so I guess you can say one of three female Azurill evolves into a male Marill if you want wink.gif

This guy's personal experience says otherwise: I think Watermelon Appreciation Day should be an official holiday celebrated everywhere. I think I'll start a petition to make it one.

If you claim hacked (I don't know what hacking can do but I'm assuming whatever you want), the second response has a quote about it from Bulbapedia.

I stand corrected.

Don't know whether that's awesome or creepy xD

So True. Oh, and the back sprite of a torchic is disturbing. Its male only, and its a one pixel difference. Can you find it?
