    So you want to catch them all? Before you journey through the countryside, hurling pokeballs at anything that moves, you might want to add these 25 facts to your arsenal. That way, you’ll be ready to take on any obstacles in the games you play on your handheld devices. You also might have a better idea of where to venture as you play PokemonGo and you just may know where the storyline could head in the latest pokemon dramatization. Or, maybe it’ll just be helpful to learn a bit more about the pocket monsters whose games have captured our imaginations since the mid-1990’s. Join ScreenRant we uncover these 25 twisted facts about Pokemon that even some longtime fans might not know.
    Here, we’ll go over the mysteries behind Pikachu’s name and its relationship to Meowth. We’ll go through the ways Pokemon experts attempted to duplicate the powerful and rare creature known as Mew. We’ll uncover the unique relationship certain Pokemon share regarding their hopping and splashing abilities, their gender-changing powers, their evolving and devolving properties, their potential to mimic and steal from opponents, and their history. Did you know that Pikachu wasn’t originally intended to be the face of the franchise? Or did you know that Slowbro is considered by some to be a delicacy, within the world of the game at least? Or that Wobbuffet and Parasect aren’t exactly the creatures they seem to be? Get out your Pokedex and expand your knowledge on Kadabra, Weezing, Koffing, Rhydon, Smeargle, Drowzee and more - here on ScreenRant!

    "Spoink isn't a water type, but can learn splash"
    Several problems with that statement, first and foremost being that splash isn't even a water type move, it's normal. Many Pokemon can learn moves they do not share a type with. Alolan Marowak (Fire and Ghost) can learn earthquake (Ground, Celesteela (Steel and Flying) can learn leach seed (Grass), and even Pikachu (Electric) can learn Iron Tail (Steel). Maybe you guys should get people who actually know about Pokemon to do you videos about Pokemon, instead of some dude who calls Dragonite Charizard and Zapdos Articuno.

    Pikachu still doesn't understand that Electric attacks aren't very effective to Rock Types...
    Yet still tries on Ash...
    (I'm trying to make that scene less emotional.)

      Actually if you try that in the game electric has no effect on rock types. Only thing Weakachu can do is iron tail but..... That's a gen 2 move I think
