** 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.

[[Pokemon-Amie Logistics]] * First off, how are you able to isolate a freshly-caught Pokemon in an environment where they won't run away or hide from you in fear? Are all Pokemon immediately accepting of their new Trainer? * Secondly, what's the in-universe explanation for how the games work? They're presented to the player as typical minigames to grind for affection, but in-universe, how are you really playing with your Pokemon? [[/folder]]

** Simply because "Countess" is the female counterpart to "Earl" as well as "Count". So it's not the male class's fault, it's the female's.

** For all we know, in Kalos, that kind of story could be as scary as the likes of VideoGame/SonicExe are for us - as in, not at all.

[[folder: Strange House]] * This is very, very, very minor, but am I the only person who thought the man's story was kind of... all right? I mean, yes, the way he tells it wouldn't scare anybody over ten years old, but with a couple of tweaks [[TheBlank a horde of faceless men]] could be properly scary. Instead it's treated on the same level as [[CreepyPasta "AND THEN A SKELETON POPPED OUT!"]]. [[/folder]]

** You are trying to impose human standards on animals. Sure, Machop does look masculine on both genders... but for us, not for them. Same with Gardevoir and its feminine traits even though it can be male. Like, if one could ask a real-life bird what they consider to be masculine traits, they would be extremely different from what we humans think. Saying Gardevoir should be female-only or that Machop should be male-only just because we find them feminine and masculine-looking, respectively, could not be more wrong (And it would be even on those masculine-looking species that have no females, and those feminine-looking species that have no males).

** Didn't the Masked Heroes remain behind? Even if they didn't, it would be easy to assume that the workers took care of it after you left. They just needed somebody to drive Team Flare out.

** Original poster: I like to make reasons, even for the odd ones, it helps with memorizing all the type matchups.
