* The addition of Pokemarts into the Pokemon Centers may have been meant to explain why Pokemon Centers don't expect pay--they get all their funding from the purchases made at the marts!

* The Pikaclones become this when you realize that they're almost certainly ''all related to each other''--all of them are electric rodents with various morphological similarities, most notably the electricity producing organs in their cheeks, a trait that only they have. So Pikachu (and its evolutions), Pachirisu, Plusle, Minun, Emolga, etc. are all at least in the same family or suborder of rodents together, just adapted to different niches.

* So, I stick two Pokemon in a daycare... And why do my Pokemon get along with outsider Pokemon better than those they have battled side-by-side with? Aside from any game mechanic explanation? It's not just in the "they simply see eachother as friends" way either, the daycare man says that they don't seem to like eachother much. ...Huh?

** I did consider the possibility, but the daycare man specifically says that they don't seem to like eachother very much, as to why I said "It's not just in the 'they simply see eachother as friends' way either".

** It's probably the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westermarck_effect Westermarck Effect]]. The psychological effect where two people, such as siblings, who grow up next to each other during the first few years of the lives don't find each other sexually attractive. A Pokemon trainer and their Pokemon form a "family unit" of sorts where the trainer is the "parental figure" and the Pokemon are the "children". They probably don't feel comfortable breeding with Pokemon they view as "siblings".

** Likewise, almost every game contains legendary Pokemon that have very dramatic backstories that imply only one of their kind has ever existed. Yet through trading with real-world friends, you can build a whole team of them.

*** This would explain why so many Pokemon "sounds" have English words (or indeed, entire clever English puns) in them. It would be interesting if Pokemon in non-English speaking countries of the Pokemon universe say their non-English names.

** Hoenn: This one also features marine creatures (Lileep/Cradily, based on sea pens and Anorith/Armauldo, based on anomalocarids), but they are more common in this region than the Kanto or Johto ones. This could mean that they either lived in different time periods from the Kanto/Johto fossils or that ancient Hoenn had different climate patterns or conditions from Kanto or Johto.
** Sinnoh: Their fossils are dinosaurs, including the pachycephalosaur-based Cranidos/Rampardos and ceratopsian-based Shieldon/Bastiodon, and both of them are stated to have lived in jungles. Obviously, this suggests that prehistoric Sinnoh was covered in rainforests.

Johto. This also ties to Relicanth's continued habitation of the region, given it most likely shared the seas with them.

Obviously, this suggests that prehistoric Sinnoh was covered in rainforests. This is even more sensible when one remembers that Sinnoh has a Coal Mine, and Coal is formed from prehistoric rainforests.



** Kalos: Amaura/Aurorous are both noted to be polar dinosaurs and Tyrunt/Tyrantrum have feathers (though admittedly not particularly extensive ones). This makes it possible that Kalos was once a snowy tundra.

tundra. The fact that the prey gained a typing that is strong against the predator hints that the Amaura line may have migrated or adapted at some point to deal with their predator like Alolan Ratatta.
