For a free spinner while, the move Hypnosis confused me how do you knock someone out just by mentally telling them to go to sleep?
Doubles as Fridge Horror if you think about it long enough.
Well, you're essentially sucking all the aura out of your target, making its ability to hit Fighting types hard make sense.
Years later it occurred to me: after taking down all their Pokémon, who's gonna be your level 38 Charizard's next target if he doesn't surrender?Then I asked, "If the games are compatible, would they really need remakes of the older versions?" I believe the answer is no, which means we may finally have moved to an era of Pokémon that's not One Game For The Price Of Seven.But why is the player still forced to do a rematch against an ordinary Trainer that s/he lost to, if s/he wants to move on with his/her story?It's not that Pokéballs are engineered to capture all Pokémon.They jeer that the caught Pokémon have "forgotten the wild." But that view is mistaken.For example, 7 male Lapras can't impregnate 1 female Lapras.That it seems like the Pokémon's levels are conveniently rising as you progress?What kind of world is it that required every single wild animal to, to name but a few, develop the power to cause localized earthquakes, breath fire, shoot leaves fast enough to be dangerous, or teleport?
I mean, shouldn't the energy signature information be stored in a central database and then transferred to every new (and old for National Dex) Pokédex the moment it's manufactured?
For the longest time I was mystified by the way Rockets would instantly surrender to a ten year old boy after losing a simple sporting creature duel.Not everyone has the emotional strength to work with Pokémon well.The professors can't be expected to just hand all the answers to you, since they want to encourage the habit of scouring the entire region to find new and possibly undiscovered Pokémon.Poké Balls are a form of power limiters, which goes to explain things like Team Rocket blasting off harmless.The Gen II remakes include the full Kanto Pokédex, split between Red/Gold and Blue/Silver.This would seem to indicate that the champion probably has traveled all over the region and has thus been able to obtain a full team.It is plausible that growing and harvesting Berries is commonplace to the poing of having been perfected in the Pokèmon World; most of them don't even sell for much, indicating that they're an abundant commodity.
