[[folder: Always Pidgey First?]]
* Am I going crazy, or is your first encounter when you first enter Route 2(before the catching tutorial) scripted to be Pidgey? I've restarted X and Y several times and this always seems to be the case. What's more, it's always in the second row of grass--I've run back and forth in the first row for several minutes and hit nothing, only to get a Pidgey the moment I step into the second row. Why?

** Occasionally, they will also sometimes give you the wrong information. Sometimes, it's on purpose, and sometimes, the person you speak to has a grudge against a particular fandom, company, or franchise. For instance, a [=GameStop=] I contacted mentioned they didn't have ''VideoGame/PokemonBattleRevolution'', but I went there anyway and a different person sold a copy to me without a second thought (and the game was right there on the shelf behind the counter). I wanted to get ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' from a Best Buy, but the person I spoke to thought it was for the PS3 and, upon finding out it was on the Wii, attempted to persuade me against buying it. A different [=GameStop=] I visited for a Pokémon event turned out to not have one, and when I asked about it, the clerk started mockingly calling me "Trainer" until I left. There are a lot of immature and/or dumb people selling video games, and I learned that there's no way to tell if a store has a game or is participating in something unless you visit there yourself, and even then it's not a guarantee.

* This aslo includes other media like Yugioh and Sword Art Online but why are Angel based Pokemon (Togepi line, ralts line) reclassifed as faries? The fair folk aren't always benevolent and have no connection to God.

** I feel like you're asking the wrong questions. Fairy is not just TheFairFolk, since Sylveon is very benevolent, and the Clefairy line are ''aliens''. Fairy is flat-out just the Light type people want to see but never will, because "Dark" is not a type in Japan. It's called "Evil", and the fact that Fairy directly opposes Dark/Evil should have the religious connection. Also, the Psychic typing has nothing to do with God either, since Psychic is treated like magic more than any other type, except Ghost. In addition, angels aren't exactly always benevolent. Metatron isn't exactly the nicest, and other angels aren't infallible, either, otherwise fallen angels wouldn't exist, and they're still technically angels.

** The way I understood it, the scientist tells you that satellites collect solar power from space and beam it down to the plant for processing, and then they ship the electricity to the city where it's needed. Team Flare just seemed to redirect the electricity from the city into wherever they needed it to go. Once they were gone, the normal flow of power could easily be reestablished. It's kind of like how if you blow a circuit breaker in your house, nothing on that circuit will work until you reset the switch.

** [[BluntYes Yeah.]] Seriously: the logic is that Pokemon only attack you because they think you look strong and like a challenge, or want to be your friend and on your side, and and [[DefeatMeansFriendship Defeat Means Friendship]], so fighting creatures is okay. (I know, but it's an E+ rated game.)


Added DiffLines:

** Since Pokemon kept in Pokeballs are converted into computer data--so you can put them in the PC and hook them up to the Pokecenter healing machines and so on--it's probably some sort of app-type thing that you have on your PDA that you can hook up the Pokeballs to.

** And Azurill was likely made Normal/Fairy simply to make it a dual-type like its evolutions are.



** I'd say that it's because they retconned Whimsicott into Grass/Fairy if not for the fact that they let other new combinations repeat (two steel/fairy types, for instance), so there's really not much of an excuse for this. Other than maybe they were going for the "fairies being tricksters" idea, and the Flabébé line is simply trying to trick you into ''thinking'' that they're Grass/Fairy?




to:

** Flabébé's shiny simply being a different flower color would kind of defeat the line's form gimmick, and, as you said, letting each form have a shiny. That, and the "purple" flowers are kind of an ambiguous bluish-purple color, so it could have gone either way, really (though I do agree it should have been closer to the color they went with for Flabébé).




to:

*** If a really strong fighting type could flip it over, then it could probably flip Avalugg back up, or maybe it would take a couple of them. Or a fork lift or something could be used. There's no reason why a Trainer-owned Avalugg couldn't have ''some'' way to get right-side-up, at least; they'd surely think of some way to do it.




to:

** If you talk to some of the workers, one of them mentions generating power from space ([[FridgeLogic or something]]). Presumably they have more ways to get power than just that one generator, especially when you consider that there are other parts to the power plant (even if they player can't get into them). Presumably, Team Flare was just taking power from that one part of the plant, and the workers were able to fix things after they left.




to:

** GameplayAndStorySegregation, probably.
