!!In General
* This particular exchange, entirely possible within the games:
-->'''(Own Pokémon) used Hi Jump Kick!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon)'s attack missed!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) [[EpicFail kept going and crashed]]!'''
-->'''*damage is dealt to the user's Pokémon*'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fainted]]!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) used Metronome!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) used Explosion!'''
-->'''The wild (Pokémon) fainted!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) fainted!'''
** [[ This picture]] demonstrates that, sometimes, Random Number Generator just hates Metronome users.
-->'''(Own Pokémon) burrowed its way under the ground!'''
-->'''Wild (Pokémon) used Self Destruct/Explosion!'''
-->'''The wild (Pokémon)'s attack missed!'''
-->'''The wild (Pokémon) fainted!'''
-->'''Wild (Pokémon) used Selfdestruct/Explosion!'''
-->'''[[NoSell It doesn't affect]] [[OurGhostsAreDifferent (Ghost-Type)]]...'''
-->'''The wild (Pokémon) fainted!'''
-->'''(Own Pokémon) used Selfdestruct/Explosion!'''
-->'''(Trainer) [[ExplosiveStupidity is out of]] [[YetAnotherStupidDeath usable Pokémon!]]'''

-->'''The wild (Pokémon) fainted!'''
* Even [[{{Minmaxing}} EV training]] can result in funny things. For example, you're battling Zubat to raise your mon's Speed stat, and you level up. You get "Max. HP + 3, Attack + 3, Defense + 1, Sp. Atk + 2, Sp. Def + 2, Speed ''+ 14''". This can be funny the first few times you see something like it.
** Unfortunately, no longer the case as of Generation V; stats are recalculated after every battle, regardless of whether or not the Pokémon leveled up, meaning that such dramatic stat jumps no longer occur.
* [[ It took Snorlax fifteen years to stand up]]
* Spinda has been loved for its uniqueness and allusions to being a DrunkenMaster. Made even funnier once Pokemon X&Y introduced hordes, [[ Spinda being one of the horde types.]]
* Just thinking about how some Pokémon can plausibly use certain moves that they can learn. How could Diglett use any of the slashing moves it can learn when it has no visible claws? The same goes for Rampardos effectively using the "Punch" moves it can learn with those tiny little arms. And why can small Flying-type Pokémon such as Pidgey, Swablu, and Fletchling use the move "Fly" and take you to any town with ease? ''How can that even happen''?
** That last one is addressed in Generation V, as it's stated that the Fly ability (Sky Jump in Japan) empowers even small Pokémon to carry their trainers. Still funny to imagine seeing it, however.
* '''Rocket Grunt''': [[ Oh no! I dropped the lift key!]] ''[[CaptainObvious (Lift key appears next to him.)]]''
* '''[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Ditto transformed into Ditto!]]'''
* NightmareFuel aside, some of the [[ "ZZAZZ" glitch]]'s more amusing effects is replacing most of your Pokémon's moves with [[TakingYouWithme Explosion]]. In this particular video, the trainer's Pokémon refuse to obey his commands, and instead of moves that give them a chance at survival, [[ExplosiveStupidity choose to use Explosion instead]].
* In Generation I, if you have at least one fainted Pokémon in your party, you can deposit all of your other Pokémon into the PC. This results in you fainting about three steps later. For added {{irony}}, do this in a Pokémon Center.
* Some hold items are automatically hilarious. Take [[CoolShades Black Glasses]], which make Dark-type moves stronger, and hand them to your most serious Pokémon. ''Darkrai was given Black Glasses! Darkrai is rockin'!'' Or, conversely, give them to Magikarp, because if your one attack is useless you might as well look cool while trying.
** Let's be honest: [[MakingASpectacleOfYourself Choice Specs]] on ''anything'' generates a hilarious mental image.
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', you can find hordes of Trevenant, a spooky tree always thinking about vengeance. And sometimes, you can find hordes of Trevenant with one Sudowoodo mixed in, a Rock-type Pokémon pretending to be a tree via a PaperThinDisguise. Apparently, these serious Trevenant aren't too bright if Sudowoodo can fool them. Either that or the Trevenants are allowing that Sudowoodo to join their gang, since they are known for being nice to Pokemon within their turf.
* "[[OneHitPointWonder Shedinja]] used [[CastFromHitPoints Final Gambit!]]" Even funnier if it actually [[CherryTapping KOs something]]. One suspects that this is the only reason why Game Freak decided to let Nincada learn the move by breeding.
* Anytime you make a move that knocks out the enemy Pokemon, especially in one hit, and the game tells you "[[ It's not very effective...]]"
** Likewise, there's the scenario where the enemy Pokémon is ''far'' weaker than yours, but it uses a move with a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors type advantage]]. You'll see the standard "It's super effective!" message each time, even though it only does ScratchDamage.
* [[{{WebVideo/Vsauce}} Vsauce]] did some research on Magikarp. If the Pokedex entry about it being able to Splash over a mountain is true, taking into account terminal velocity and its average weight of 22lbs (10kg), [[AnvilOnHead anybody standing in the landing zone would be killed on impact.]]
** The introduction of Z-Moves makes this even funnier. Since Magikarp can learn Bounce, it can use ''Supersonic Skystrike'', which fits the aforementioned scenario ''perfectly''.
* The fact that ''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Azumarill]]'' of all things has the ability [[SuperStrength Huge Power]] is rather giggle-worthy.
* While not in the games but still related to them, over on The Drawfee Channel on YouTube, three of the artists sit down to draw Pokemon from memory. HilarityEnsues. They [[ must be seen to be believed]]. There's eight now (Parts I, II, and II, the GO edition, and an Alola Forms edition, as well as one video for each starter imagining how their second and third stages would look).
* When ''Pokemon Bank'' was updated for ''Sun and Moon'', Junichi Masuda was challenged to [[ name as many Pokemon as he could in 20 seconds.]] Fans familiar with the Japanese names might realize that the order until Mew seems a little familiar -- it's the first part of [[ Japan's equivalent of the Pokerap!]]
* A good few cards in the TCG have [[ errors]] that can either be small or just really funny and amusing to see.

[[folder: The manga]]
* [[ The first Pokémon manga, a 4koma named ''Pokémon 4Koma Gag Battle'', is made up of this.]] It does have numerous [[WidgetSeries odd jokes]] and pervy jokes though.
* Even the 4komas released in Japan thst focused on the Pokemon in the Pokedex that the 4koma was centered on were funny. Even the US was not safe from laughter when a Black and White 4koma under the title "Pokemon Black and White Pocket Comics" was released in the US.
