    Sorry to be a bit off-topic, but that gave me an idea.

    Are Pokémon really improving in relative size to each other as each Generation goes on? No lol, take a look at this:

    Let's say you're Red is now 6 feet tall (I'm 5'9 in real life, so I just round up to 6 feet). I'm 55 pixels tall. 55 pixels = 6 feet. 55/6 = 9.16666~. Lets round down, so let's say 1 foot is 9 pixels (it would actually be a teeny bit more, but who cares).

    This is really how big the Pokémon are in relative size to each other. I looked at their heights on Bulbapedia and calculated how many pixels tall they should be, if 9 pixels = 1 foot, Red being about 6 feet. Now, Dragonair and Serperior are debatable, since it probably meant that Dragonair is 13 feet long, rather than it being 13 feet tall in a normal resting position, but it's funny if it meant they're actually that huge in a normal resting position. BUT, Infernape is really that tiny compared to Feraligatr. Infernape is 3'03, while Feraligatr is 7'07. Talk about serious ROFLMAO for Infernape.

    A bit off-topic, but still interesting nonetheless.

    EDIT: Here's some more Pokemon size comparisons:
