How pathetic criminals are. I mean, grab yourself a Pokemon, and start burning stuff, destroying, taking hostages, etc. How the heck are they so sorry?

Two things.

1. Ok, like the post above, why are the criminals so pathetic. Ok, they lose a Pokemon battle, TO A TEN YEAR OLD! They obviously have the advantage of strength here, so don't let him pass just because he won! WTH!?

2. Just the fact that Pokemon eat each other and may have been eaten by humans at one time is enough for me.

There are so many things that are half explained, or not even explained at all in the Pokemon world, which means plenty of opportunities for 'WTF' moments. One prime example is just how weak these evil teams are. You'd think they would hire some Trainers who don't lose to children. Or the whole thing about how some Pokedex entries say Pokemon eat other Pokemon but we never see any Pokemon eating Pokemon. Or maybe some really obvious stuff like how Kangaskhan is hatched and it already has a little baby Kangaskhan. Which apparently never grows up to have its own little Kangaskhan child. The list can go on and on. Maybe the people at GF can just sit down and try to explain all these plot holes.

Tl;dr, No-one has ever seen a Pokemon lay an egg, WTF.

What the hell.

In the anime, it talks about how you should be kind to your Pokemon and treat them in a good and safe way.

Battling for gym badges just so you can go and hurt the Pokemon more in a league seems a bit mean to the poor things.

The fact that even the mammals lay eggs, I mean I understand why they have it that way for a kids program, but c'mon talk about teaching kids incorrect ideas.

Galactic
Rocket
Aqua
Magma
Plasma

The word "Gramps" is formed..."Gramps" is how Blue addresses to Prof. Oak in
Gen I + Gen IV remakes...
So...is Oak secretly pulling the strings behind every single one of the villainous teams on every game? Is he the supreme villain? Believe it or not, once you've read this you won't forget it...
This blew my mind away.

If X and Y's evil organization start with a S... now then will be a truly WTH moment.

Except that there isn't much that makes me go "what the hell?" I guess haha. Maybe one would be how Ash hasn't died yet after a zillion volts of electricity Pikachu has electrocuted him with, or really any other thing that Ash has suffered with, I mean seriously? Or the fact that Pokemon has a move called PERISH SONG. That move just gives me chills.

Electric Pokemon cannot hurt, or paralyze, ground type Pokemon, but ground type Pokemon can be paralyzed by the ability static. I mean, what?

And yeah, rats lay eggs, dodrio uses it's head as propellers to fly (or how are they able to fly?) and zangoose cannot cut anything xD

Pokemon that flee when you put them to sleep. How are they moving? How does one flee? do Pokemon sleepwalk/trun? I think it's a weird concept. Since i used hypnosis, and the thing flees. I expect ed it to just stay. Sigh. It happened in Platinum or Diamond.

The thing that made me go WTH is that a Wailord can breed with Skitty. And what Oak says in Fire red.Prof. Oak: "This is my grandson. He's been your rival since you both were babies. ...Erm, what was his name now?" seriously, he don't even remember his own grandson's name. How the hack he can remember all those Pokemon he have?

The fact that gym leaders at the beginning are such a low level... what if you start at the other end of the world? You'd be competing with 8th gym and then getting easier. I know this makes complete sense - it's a game. But still it's something I always think about.

That you can't catch Pokemon when they faint. Where have they went to???????

How someone like Tobias can have not one but TWO legendary Pokemon and then goes to completely dominate the entire Sinnoh Pokemon League with them.

Seriously, that's just not fair.

There was that one doctor in BW2 that said "I'll battle even if I can't find a pulse!" I don't understand how that could have EVER gotten into a kid's game, it's just such a strange line and couldn't really mean anything else other than "I'll battle even if the Pokemon's dead." I have no idea what they were thinking when this was put in there.

Also lots of Ghost Pokemon's Pokedex entries... Pokemon is really morbid, is it?

My guess would be that Gym Leaders use Levels based on the Challenger's experience. A trainer with no badges would fight the weak(er) team, a trainer with seven/eight badges would fight a leader at full strength. In the Jotho series, you fight the Kanto leaders at a much higher level than you did in the Kanto series. So I deem it plausible.

WTH moments, huh?
Mostly type dis/advantages that I don't expect. Or how Hugh's Serperior can OHKO a Cryogonal with Leaf Blade. I'm vaguely thinking that if it were my Serperior, that wouldn't be the case. >_>

Strange case with Double Kick: the animation per hit used to be one kick, resulting in two hits. Now it's some preposterous quad kick.

The things trainers say when you talk to them.

Like the kid in one of sports arenas that says, "These aren't pants! They are half shorts!"

I am just like wtf O_o

I don't get how in the anime, Pokemon attack humans and their techniques are extremely dangerous i.e. Gust, Thunder.

Yet, Gust is mediocre in the games, and you don't ever hear about trainers dying from battling Pokemon because of some freak incident with a Charizard's Flamethrower. People die in r/l from wild animal encounters. It doesn't make sense that some big Dragon Pokemon isn't going around munching on humans.

Also, Pokemon is basically Dog Fighting in kiddy form. You're sicking animals against each other to win money and fame.

Seriously?
