      Does it make sense for a green plant to create earthquake

        Yes. He uses roots underground to make the earth tremble.
        Makes more sense than 90% of gen 1 mons who learn Earthquake.

          75 accuracy is literally the best sleep accuracy you can get in gen 1 without resorting to using a shitmon like Parasect.

          About the toxic leech seed stacking glitch? Everyone knows about that, it's just not practical in a single player mode where you can pretty easily mow down most mons in 1-3 turns.

      Leech Seed is too slow in gen 1, better to run two coverage moves or Swords Dance.

            I'm guessing they wanted to make poison slightly less shit defensively but didn't want to nerf bug too hard, so they just changed the interaction into a flat one way resist.
            A shame to lose such a unique interaction though, yeah.

      Like how in gen 1 scyther was incapable of learning any damage move that wasn't normal type even through tm's
      Only in yellow did it learn wing attack which was base 35 power

        He can learn mimic, though, and in Gen 1 that lets you literally just pick any move from the Pokemon you're facing to permanently copy

          For the duration of the battle, and only in single player. In pvp it just copies a random move.

      My favorite gen 1 trivia is always move related, like how Focus Energy is straight up bugged and cuts your crit chance instead of increasing it. Or, despite all the powercreep, we still haven't reached the point of busted ass moves like Gen 1 Blizzard, Gen 1 Amnesia, Gen 1 Hyper Beam, or Gen 1 Wrap.

        honestly though?

        Bring Back Gen 1 Hyperbeam

        instead of being a useless move, it was a legit tactical choice to use it, and especially these days with 120 base power moves being reasonably common it wouldn't be near overpowered

        try it out, lick is the only ghost move that deals actual damage in gen 1
        which is probably why nobody knows because lick is a base 20 power physical move and Gengar has piss-poor attack stat

        speaking about lick, in gen 1 lickitung could not learn lick

    I think what is bizarre is the change they made between gen 1 swift and gen 2 is that in gen 1 it cannot miss, but it can miss when a Pokémon is using Dig or Fly but it still has the description that it always hits but it's not true.

    I like PLA the most of recent games as it shook up the battle system a bit, and I love the new catching mechanics. Far better than the regular ones and infinitely better than GOshit.

        I guess it was the only gen I starter who couldn't learn EQ in Gen I. I know it learned it later on but I figured since Blastoise and Charizard learned in R/B/Y it must have too.
