13 Little-Known Pokemon Secrets And Facts That Will Blow Your Mind


The world of Pokemon is filled with so many interesting and unique creatures and lore. Superfans pride themselves on knowing every little detail about Pokemon, but there's so much about the fictional world and the creatures living in it that even the most dedicated fan won't know.


THAT ROCKS!
Although it's impossible for a Pokemon to have more than two types, if there were a Pokemon that was a combination of all 18 possible types, you'd probably think it'd be invincible, right? Well, it would actually still have one weakness. Rock type attacks would be super effective on this impossible Pokemon.


MRS. MIME
"Mr. Mime" the pokemon can in fact be a girl, however the name of the pokemon doesn't actually change. She would still be a Mr. Mime. I guess that makes sense, or else you'd think they would all be married!


DODUO CAN FLY!
In Pokemon stadium, it was revealed how Doduo can learn the move 'fly'. Apparently it just runs really fast and the running motion gives it the power of flight! It just floats there, running in place...


COUNT ON IT
Many Pokemon names include numbers, The original legendary trio of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres include the Spanish words for one, two, and three (uno, dos, tres). Deino and his evolutions include the German words for one, two, and three (ein, zwei, drei).

ORIGINAL LEGENDARY
Originally, Arcanine was intended to be a legendary Pokemon. The game team replaced Arcanine with Moltres before releasing the game, and make the fire dog a standard Pokemon. They must've regretted the idea of not including a fire dog legendary because they introduced Entei in the next generation.


A VERY EARLY MENTION
Although Munna wasn't introduced until generation 5, it is actually referenced in the very first game! A woman standing outside of Rock Tunnel in Pokemon Red and Blue dreams about a chunky pink Pokemon with a floral pattern. Clearly the game makers had Munna in mind even way back then.


MODIFIED POKEMON?
Genesect is a very futuristic Pokemon, and Kabutops is an ancient fossil. However, there are rumors that Genesect is actually a Kabutops that's been modified. Although the two don't share any of the same types and use barely any of the same attacks, there is a definite resemblence, especially when you compare Genesect's head to Kabuto.


GENDER BENDER
Azurill is the only Pokemon that can change it's gender when evolving. When evolving into Marill, Azurill has a 1 in 4 chance of switching genders. Fans have debated whether this is because some amphibians are able to change gender, or that it may have embryonic qualities that mean it hasn't fully formed into a gender yet.


A FAILED ATTEMPT?
There are rumors that the transforming Pokemon Ditto was a failed attempt to create Mew. Both Pokemon are pink, weigh 8.8 lbs, know Transform naturally, and can learn every possible move. And since we know that scientists were indeed trying to create a copy of Mew (aka how Mewtwo was made), this doesn't seem like a bizarre notion at all.


SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE SPINDA
Spinda isn't an often-used Pokemon, but it has a pretty interesting trait. No two Spinda's are the same, and to ensure that, the game developers created over 4 billion unique spot patterns for Spinda to have.


ANATOMICALLY CORRECT
The swirl on Poliwag's stomach may just seem like a fun design, but it's actually based on real life. Real tadpoles actually have swirled intestines, and Poliwag's swirl mimics them.


POLAR OPPOSITES
In the anime, it's clear that Pikachu and Meowth are on completely opposite sides. This is intentional, and is based on the animals that they were created to look like: a mouse and a cat. Another hint at this is that their Pokedex numbers (25 and 52) are exact opposites.


SHADOW OF A DOUBT
Speaking of opposites, there's another Pokemon duo that is thought by many to be exact opposites. Gengar is the shadow Pokemon, and many believe that he earned that name because he's actually Clefable's shaow come to life. The two Pokemon look very similar, and their (original) Ghost/Normal typings ensure that neither can ever touch eachother, much like a person and his shadow.


FAMOUS PIKACHU
Pokemon Yellow gave players the opportunity to play the game in a similar style to how the anime unfolded, which involved starting with a special Pikachu that followed you around. If the Pikachu from Pokemon Yellow is uploaded to Pokemon Stadium, then it becomes even more like the anime.

The uploaded Pikachu is voiced by Ash's Pikachu's atual voice actor Ikue Ohtani and has unique sound effects.
