* Why did it take Red so long to figure out that Mew was out there? He quoted that "Mew gave birth - we gave the newborn mewtwo".

** If he read the journals, which the quote implies that he did, then Red would likely know that the scientists found Mew way out in a remote area in South America. If that's still true in Origins, he probably just assumed he'd never run into it. That, or... Red possibly didn't read that part, or he just forgot.

** The special tends to ignore levels in terms of when certain mons learn their moves. For instance, Nidoran shouldn't be able to learn double-kick until 46 in the original games, yet knew it in the battle against Onix. It's further implied Red's pokemon are vastly low leveled compared to Charizard.

*** Seems more like Jolteon was engulfed by the Thunderbolt and hit everywhere, not just the eyes.

** Not to mention Rhydon has 45 SpA, Jolteon has 95 SpD, and Electric resists itself. A resisted, non-STAB hit at full health from a Pokemon with virtually no SpA stat. Okay then.

** It's quite justified by ''where'' Jolteon was hit: [[EyeScream the eyes]]. Poor Pokemon had probably fainted for the sheer pain...

* How is Giovanni's Rhyhorn able to OHKO Jolteon with Thunderbolt? Considering Jolteon knows Double Kick, that puts its level at 42 at the very least. Ignoring Volt Absorb or assuming it had Quick Feet explains why it got damaged at all, but Giovanni's Rhyhorn in the original games is level 45. At that level difference, it is absolutely impossible for Rhyhorn to OHKO Jolteon with Thunderbolt, or any Special attack for that matter. I get that they want to make Giovanni look strong, but that's just too absurd to be seen as anything other than wielding the might powers of plot.

*** The same way as any Cubone bred from the Daycare Center get their helmets [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in the games.]] Despite what the Pokédex states, Cubone's helmet skull is not made from their mother skull ever since Generation II. Not to mention that none of the Pokédex entries in Origins are readable anyway.

*** There could be a grimmer interpretation that Marowak was immune to the electricity of the rod, so the Rocket Grunt simply had to beat it to death.
