Did you happen to learn anything about Pokémon recently? Maybe about a hidden scene in a certain game that you weren't aware existed, or a fact from the Pokédex that you had no idea about... share here (b' ')b
RetroAchievements made me aware of this over a month ago, but I since then I never knew that Prof. Oak...
...gives you free Poké Balls if you beat the second rival battle and returning to Pallet Town Lab without buying or picking up any balls on Red or Blue versions. How I missed this before is mind boggling as I take my ball and run through the games every single time. For 23 years.
...Oak gives you the Poké Balls right away with the Pokédex in the remakes. Matching dialogue, too.
In Gen II games, you can decorate your room with various Pokémon-themed furniture and dolls. You can even get some items by connecting to the Stadium 2 and using Mystery Gift function. But I recently learned there are 3 items that can't be obtained because of some kind of bug in Stadium 2. You can't get Pikachu Bed, Unown Doll and Tentacool Doll.
In RSE, I learned that Gabby and Ty have a special dialogue entry if you throw a Poke Ball at them during their battle. They call you out on it after the battle and again during their TV segment. This doesn't happen in ORAS, though.
(I didn't personally do this; but throwing a Poke Ball does have a niche use as a way to skip a turn without wasting a Power Point or switching Pokemon, mostly against Dig/Fly/Dive users. Poke Balls are the cheapest consumable item that don't require a specific status condition to use in Gen 1/2/3, and you don't waste them in Gen 4+ by using them to skip your turn.)
I recently learned that the Shiny Charm's odds are 3/4096, or something? And even after getting one, I haven't found any shiny Pokemon lmfao. This is why I definitely enjoy the thrill of random shinies in the wild.
