LOL

I've always had that problem personally but thankfully(somehow) I've always somehow managed to look past it. XD

    Realistically speaking here, unless the Pokemon center has some pretty damn strong windows, he could've smashed into one of them. XD

    ....But of course, this is Pokemon, so....

      Yes, this is Pokemon.

      Not going to lie, I'm now wondering if Tauros can actually swim. If that's possible, then maybe carrying people isn't too far off!

      /shot for insane and inconclusive theory

      I mean at worst they can doggy-paddle, so.... u_u

        I don't even know what to say to that other than "That is awesome". XD

        Though it would've made more sense(and would've been more badass, for obvious reasons) if Gary Oak was on that Tauros instead.

        And probably a bit more hilarious too. XD

        Remember, Nidoqueen/Nidoking, Tyranitar, Aggron, Rampardos, Rhydon/Rhyperior, and Stunfisk (all which are weak to Water, especially in the case of Rhydon/Rhyperior) can swim too, so anything's possible :B Maybe they also use a surfboard? But they'd still get wet... Guess they'd have to tough it out, then.

        Gotta love Pokemon and its science-defying factors, no?

        Aren't Tauros like water buffalo that cross rivers and stuff on their own?

          I thought it was just a bull lol - doesn't its name come from those Spanish bull ring things? If anything I thought the, uh, buffalo-ish thing in Generation V would be that. Its name would suggest it's meant to be a buffalo anyway lol.

            Then again, some things do get lost in translation. But I agree :3 Awesome picture!

            Bouffalant, you mean. :<
            I love that comic so much. Green's expression is killing me tbh.

            Y'ALL.
            I can barely move my arms right now. I had a free consultation/training session with a trainer at the gym yesterday and my arms are aching. ;_;

            Taurus is a latin word that means "bull", and it can certainly be argued that they mixed it with its Spanish counterpart: taurus + toro = tauros. So yeaaaah I'd think it wasn't inspired in buffalos precisely.

              Thinking about it it's probably after the Taurus star sign depicting a bull. THey tend to just change one letter or two and use it as a Pokémon name, like with Seel for example.

              ...well, it's probable. But the Taurus consteallation is called like that because the Romans looked at it and saw a bull, and hence they named it with their word for "bull", which is Taurus. So, even if they didn't realize they were using the Latin word for bull... they were :P

                inb4 "lol so much bull in this thread"

                but yeah you're probably right there... And there are probably more pressing things for us to wonder. Like why Rhyperior can use Surf.

                Loads of bull in this thread. Which means that there will be a lot of bullcrap sometime soon.

                Oh, logic in the Pokemon world.

                ..I went to look for a comic about flying on small Pokemon, but then I found

                which is a lot more interesting

                Nevermind, though, that Doduo can learn Fly.

                Well, flying is just falling with style and missing the ground. They never said you had to do it for very long before you fall.

                  My signature and flightless birds and pictures of weird stuff in Pokémon.

                    which is a lot more interesting
                    Nevermind, though, that Doduo can learn Fly.

                    Here's what you were looking for.
                    But seriously what happened? Did Pokecommunity merge with Pokememes or something /shot

                      I like how me just posting that comic causes the title of the thread to change.

                      So does the thread title just change with each topic or what?

                        Pretty much. Whatever everyone talks about ends up as the title. xD
