Top 10 Things That Don't Make Sense In Pokemon

SmashBall
There's a lot of things that don't make sense in the world, like Donald Trump's brain, our government, and life in general. Not only it doesn't make sense in the real world, there's a lot of things that don't make sense in Pokemon. Today, I'll be listing that make the least sense in my opinion, as I continue to celebrate PokeMonth in my account.

The Top Ten

1 Hitting yourself in confusion

Do they become deaf and slap themselves or something? How can you hurt yourself when you are told to just look at the opponent (Mean Look/Leer/Scary Face/...)?

How does the Pokemon just hit himself for no reason? - Martinglez

I'm confused. Better hit myself in the face. - SmashBall

2 Scyther not learning Fly

IT HAS WINGS! Why can't it learn Fly?! - SmashBall

3 When your Pokemon is poisoned, every step you take, they lose HP
4 Zubat learning Mean Look

Uhh... Where are its eyes? - SmashBall

5 A male Gardevoir

Thank God, Game Freak gave Kirlia an evolution for the male version. - SmashBall

6 Pokemon that evolve by Trading

I can't complete my National Pokedex mostly because of this. - SmashBall

7 HM Moves

God, I hate giving up awesome moves on Pokemon because HM Moves take up space and can't be forgotten, unless you go to the Move Deleter, and find a Heart Scale to relearn the move. - SmashBall

8 A 10 year-old catching Arceus

Oh look the God of Pokemon! Oh wait, a ten year old just captured it! Makes sense!

It's pretty bullcrap if you ask me - SmashBall

9 Pokemon Pronunciation

Yveltal, Xerneas, Arceus, and Zygarde are good examples - SmashBall

10 Ho-oh is in the VERY First episode of Pokémon: Pokémon, I choose you.

Ho-oh is in the Johto pokedex and I don't understand why it isn't in the Kanto one as it was first seen in Kanto

The Contenders

11 Magikarp sweeping an entire team

My friend told me to do this one - SmashBall

12 Your Pokemon can use Dig on the water
13 Mew is the first pokemon in existence; Arceus created all pokemon
14 Cosmoem's stats
