** The Alolan form of Sandslash has been associated with VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog due to physical similarities. However, once Alolan Sandslash's Ice/Steel typing was revealed, they quickly shifted to calling him Coldsteel (named after an infamously memetic Sonic fan OC)

* Longtime fans may remember back in Generation I when bogus rumors were flying about the infantile internet speculating on a possible secret/glitch that would allow you to catch the most elusive of all Pokémon: Mew (No.151). Surprise surprise, there really IS a secret glitch that allows you to catch a Mew! For real this time! Now the bad news: you will probably have to restart your game in order to pull this off, since the easiest method for getting Mew requires you to have not battled a certain trainer on the route north of Cerulean City. Mew is actually only a small part of a game-breaking glitch which can be activated as soon as you have Teleport/Fly and meet a trainer who will try to battle you as soon as he appears on-screen (near Lavender/Saffron). Fly away before he battles you, but after the "!" appears over his head, and you will soon find yourself battling strange glitch Lv.7 Pokémon determined by the Special stat of the last Pokémon you fought.

* {{Defictionalization}}: The games, themselves. In RealLife, it is extremely possible to encounter others playing a Pokémon game, and (if conditions are right) battle them, just like that damn Bug Catcher kid outside Vermilion City. In fact, many events and tournaments have been held ''in real life'' using the game and connection equipment (with real badges and rewards) Not to mention that getting an [[http://www.amazon.com/pokemon-pokedex-Pokemon-Advanced-Pokedex/dp/B00020LZ84 actual Pokédex]] can save you a lot of trouble in the games. And taking it a step further: As of 2014, [[http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0110646 there is a real-life pterosaur called "Aerodactyl"]].

The latter was allegedly not named after its Pokemon counterpart, but one of its describers did admit that “similarities between this species and certain other squat, tusked quadrupeds may not be entirely coincidental.”

* FandomLifeCycle: As a whole, the franchise is squarely a 5. It is one of Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s best selling series, has a very long running [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime series]], and has influenced quite a few corners of popular culture.
