    Back when the anime first aired, I used to tilt my head at their attempts of localization. Calling a rice ball a jelly-filled doughnut, for example.

    My incredibly crap luck on Confusion, usually hitting myself more than the other Pokémon and flinching. My Pokémon flinch at the worst times.

          It's when the Pokemon lives without eating anything in the game. Plus the player doesn't tire out xD

            Game wise, when I found out Black & White would scrapped the idea of Pokemon following behind you from HeartGold and SoulSilver. WTH?!?! That was awesome!

            Anime wise, why is Pikachu is getting beaten in a Pokemon battle at all at this point?! It HAS to be at level 100 by now. Just because Ash is staying 10 years old forever doesn't mean Pikachu has never levels up!

            Like the sprites you see here?
            Want a custom one of your very own?

            Come on down to DD's Sprite Shop~!

            I've never watched the anime, so I can't really think of "what the hell" periods from that ._. However, I have plenty from the games, one of which being in Diamond: "What the hell is this on my lower screen?" Being eight, I was quite confused about the function of the Poketch, and so abhorred it, casting it and the touch screen to the depths of oblivion.

              The amount of immunity characters have to fall damage in the anime. They probably built the roads out of Styrofoam to be able to walk off with no sweat after falling on solid 'concrete'.

              In the games: Dat Silph Co. architecture! The employees must have a hell of a time trying to navigate that atrocity.

                When a Spoink stops bouncing, it dies.

                That's kind of eerie, lol. Can't help but wonder how they handle being able to be stationary as a Grumpig. Either immense relief or paranoia at being still and not dying :p

                  My WTH moments in the anime was when this dissappeared.

                  And in the games some of the Pokedex Entries.
                  Jellicent: If its veil-like arms stun and wrap a foe, that foe will be dragged miles below the surface, never to return.
                  Cubone: When it thinks of its dead mother, it cries. Its crying makes the skull it wears rattle hollowly.
                  Chandelure: Being consumed in Chandelure's flame burns up the spirit, leaving the body behind.
                  Duskull: It loves the crying of children. It startles bad kids by passing through walls and making them cry.

                  Like some of these entries are just.. wow..

                    I just remembered the Pokedex entry for Darumaka... "Darumaka's droppings are hot, so people used to put them in their clothes to keep themselves warm."

                      That's gross, lol.... What makes me go wth is in the games why do the trainers you encounter spin around in circles like a bunch of idiots. Day and night.

                        "What the Hell?"

                        Finding out that certain types are super-effective against other types you would never expect. Like Fighting being super-effective against Ice. Or just the fact that electric moves are neutral against pure-rock types!

                          Yamask's Pokedex entry...

                          Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry.

                          So some Pokemon were once humans, that sure makes you think. Doesn't James own a Yamask now?

                            The fact that Mr. Mime can be female is a bit odd.
                            Also, I don't understand how some Pokemon have clothes.
                            • All Jynx have dresses
                            • All Hitmonchans have weird skirt-tunic things
                            • All Machoke/Machamp have girdles (the underwear things they have)

                            I wonder if the clothes are just a part of the Pokemon or if they have to dress in them every time they wake up.
                            Why can't I just be me?

                              How is water not strong against electric? Shouldnt they get shorted out or something?

                                  Getting air lifted by a pidgey or swimming on a Pokemon that clearly wouldn't be able to handle the weight of a human. But, games don't need to make sense! Right?

                                  In the anime I've always wondered if Ash is forever young. xD He's always 10 yrs old and not a single birthday. Oh, Jessie and James too. Don't they have other missions apart from getting Pikachu and making poems?

                                  Ghost Pokemon. I mean, really. Pokemon in games only pretty much faint. Yet there are cemeteries for dead Pokemon and wild ghost Pokemon inhabiting them.

                                  In games, well, sleep status on Pokemon = still able to run away. -.- What. Also Pokedex entries like Darumaka's. e_e

                                  And how can a HUGE pokemon (like legendaries) fit inside one tiny little Pokeball. Really, tell me. How. xp

                                      Apparently only a ten year old Pokemon trainer can find legendaries, because everyone else in the region is braindead.

                                      you don't have enough talent to win on talent alone

                                        I've never seen Pokemon doo in the games or show
                                        I read that as "It's made from Pokemon, you know." 0.0

                                        Why do little children have Pokemon, and yet the player-character is like 10-12 years old, living RIGHT NEXT TO TALL GRASS, not have even a Rattata?!

                                        Why can't I just use inferno on Ghetsis before he sends out his next Pokemon? I mean, I do respect honor and all, but HE WANTS TO BE THE HITLER OF POKEMON! Just take 'im out when he's defenseless! *grumblegrumble* Kid's game. *grumblegrumble*

                                          Was in the bell tower last night in HeartGold... How does that old tower have teleporters, but new structures don't? And that kimono girl getting stuck on ice so smooth, most hockey rinks would be jealous.

                                          This. Everyone is like "omg, the legendary is here!" And some 12 year old trainer is the only one with enough balls to throw poke balls at the thing.
