* Sandile and its evolutions are gavials, which mostly eat insects. But since they're Dark-typed, they're weak to Bug-type moves...
** Um, Sandile/Krokorok/Krookodile are actually based off of the crocodiles in general (In particular the Spectatled Caiman). They feed on far more than just insects. Plus, eating a Bug-Type Pokemon as food and battling it in a trainer-based battle are two completely different things.
** The Japanese name of Sandile refers to crocodile but the two evolutions refer to gavials, as do their head shapes. Being weak to bug moves does not matter much though. They are ambush predators.

*** N was being raised as a king, hinting that Ghetsis would use him to replace the government. I doubt Ghetsis would simply use N as a puppet king, considering to a megalomaniac like him that's not good enough. Ghetsis could try to claim N was filling the spot for him, but people would prefer N and catch on to Ghetsis only doing all this [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans for the sake of ruling Unova.]] Ghetsis could arrest him, but then he'd have to keep him alive, which [[TheSociopath would be too much of hassle.]] Let's face it, Ghetsis would probably take the easy way out and kill N, probably using his Hydreigon to do it: Hydreigon [[AxCrazy are infamous for their temper]], and Ghetsis could claim that he lost control of Hydreigon. In summation, Ghetsis would've found killing N the best option at ensuring his rise to power, [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy and we all know that's something]] [[LackOfEmpathy he'd have no problem with.]]

* Why the fuck is Alder not officially classified as a Bug-type Master when he's Champion? Half his team is bugs, and apparently having half your team be a type (Steven, Iris, Lance) allows you to be classified as a master of a certain type.

** N and Ghetsis say it themselves: in the first BW game, they are not trying to force people to release their pokemon, but rather trying to 'change the world'. Most people in Unova know of the legendary dragon that accompanied the hero, so the wielder of the legendary who has also beaten the champion WILL be taken seriously regarding the matter of pokemon. Team Plasma's traditional appearance is also to take advantage of the Unovan hero lore. They wanted the public to view N as the second coming of the ancient king and hero. They were going to influence the general public and make a world where keeping pokemon was viewed as wrong. You can actually see the difference in people's reactions to the two times Ghetsis appeared in public and made a speech about pokemon liberation. In Accumula town people dismissed the idea quickly, but after N acquired the dragon, the Opelucid crowd was much more receptive to what Ghetsis said.

** Well, if it was ''underground'', presumably it would be harder to notice. They weren't exactly building it right behind the league where people would actually see it. How in the world they manage to figure out a way to get it to come up like that without people noticing something was up beforehand is a good question, though.


Added DiffLines:

** Maybe people thought that Team Plasma would release their Pokémon, too, or... Team Plasma somehow managed to convince people that they were the only ones doing it "right." A necessary evil type of situation, maybe?

*** That's exactly the point of the move: to force slower Pokemon to move first, including those using decreased priority moves. If any move seems like it works for the sole purpose of benefiting your opponent or is otherwise useless in a single or rotation battle, chances are that it was intended for use in double and triple battles. The same goes for many moves that you wouldn't be able to use consistently, such as Snatch (which can be used by one of your Pokemon to steal the effects of one of your other Pokemon's moves). Quash is almost useless without Trick Room, though. It forces the opponent to go last, but it has no increased Priority and most of the Pokemon that gain the move are slow. Even worse is the fact that, unlike After You, the number of things able to learn it didn't increase in B2W2.

* In Hiun/Castelia City, there's streets where there are lots of people busily running back and forth. But when you get to the Central Plaza, there's barely any people there. What happened to them?

***** You guys are missing the obvious, Samurott also has a high Attack stat, so his ability to use weapons just make sense. Consider that there a many cases in video games, and other media for that matter, where a character is very skilled in both physical attacks and magical attacks (special attacks in this case).

** Its mustache is just that sexy?
*** It's the new MemeticSexGod of Pokemon.
**** Actually, it's probably because Cryogonal is partially based on a giant mirror. There are a couple of moves that don't make sense for it to have--Flash Cannon and Solar Beam--until you realize that those attacks are light-based and mirrors reflect light. So the reason why it learns Attract... is because ''it's reflecting its opponent, trying to make its opponent fall in love with its own image!''

* How exactly did team plasma expect people to listen to them? Their goal is to convince people to give up their Pokemon so they're the only ones with Pokemon, fair enough, but ''they're using Pokemon themselves'' and not in secret either. They're out there in the open going against the thing they supposedly stand for. Would you listen to someone who told you to stop eating ice-cream if they were eating an ice cream themselves at that moment?

** This is kind of stretching it, but I always thought of it as the castle being ancient ruins from a long forgotten civilization, and anything to suggest a more recent building point is actually Team Plasma discovering and refurbishing it as a base of sorts. (I haven't played the games in a while but I remember a mechanic in the game where you actually explore ruins underwater to collect treasure. Maybe it's related?)
