Re: Weird Pokedex entries
It's always the ghosts that tend to have weird Pokedex entries... Maybe they are harder to find and haven't been studied as much so their entries are more likely to be myths and legends rather than facts, as most other Pokedex entries seem to be...
Here are some more! (Most Pokedx entries are pretty weird now that I look at them closely. xD)
Crystal: Somewhere in the world is a cemetery just for Marowak. It gets its bones from those graves.
Marowak is a graverobber!
Crystal: It has a tongue that is over 6'6" long. It uses this long tongue to lick its body clean.
FireRed: Very rarely, a sudden mutation can result in two small Koffing twins becoming conjoined as a Weezing.
Weezing is made up of siamese Koffing twins?! xD
Emerald: Once it starts running, it doesn't stop. Its tiny brain makes it so stupid that it can't remember why it started running in the first place.
Wow, never thought the Pokedex would call a Pokemon stupid xD Poor Rhyhorn!
An examination of its cell revealed the presence of a gene not found in Horsea. It became a hot topic.
Now this one is interesting! It suggests Pokemon may gain new genes upon evolution. I think it's more likely that they would have gene expression changes rather than new genes as they still breed to produce Horsea. But who knows!
