Before we proceed to the Pokemon Movies Collection, let’s talk about some interesting facts about Pokemon that you may already knew or may not.

1Pokemon based on Hollywood celebrities

2Pikachu and Meowth

In the anime, Pikachu and Meowth are on opposite sides. This is done intentionally. It is based on the animals that Pikachu and Meowth were created to look like – a mouse and a cat. In addition, their Pokedex numbers (25 and 52) are exact opposites.

By the way, Meowth is the first Pokémon in the animé to talk.

3Unique Spinda

Spinda isn’t a Pokemon that you may use often, but it has a pretty interesting trait. You won’t find any two Spinda’s are the same. The game developers created over four (4) billion unique spot patterns for Spinda to have. A lot of work!!!

4Pokemon is not Japanese…

The name of Pokemon is not Japanese! Such a disappointment… It’s really just a combination of “pocket” and “monster.” Thant’s all!

The name Pokémon is the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスタ ー Poketto Monsutā)
