In one of my ever-classic moments of working on everything except what people actually want me to be working on, I randomly made the Goofs and Inconsistencies page I mentioned off-handedly a while ago that I wanted to make. Hopefully it will amuse some of you.

If you remember more goofs that I didn't just fix, by all means point them out.

Yes, I've been writing the chapter too. I know progress is slow, but I've had work and friends taking up a lot of my time.

Is it just me, or was it I that pointed out Mist's backstory and the HM reusability contrdicted themselves?

Me first.

That first was completely unnessecary. Besides, Butterfree was first.
I actually haven't noticed any of those, goofs. I'm gonna tetras the entire thing and go goof spotting.

Does the Racko-son-of-Ash's-Grovyle thing count as an inconsistency?

Oh God, the pokéball send-out light thing. I've always written it as white to send out, red to recall, since I remember it quite clearly from the anime. But lately it seems that everyone is writing it as red-red instead, in ASB as well as in fanfiction. I've gotten really paranoid that either I'm insane or for some reason they changed the color in later anime seasons.

I don't understand why it's such a common mistake. Even in the games the send-out color for a basic pokéball is white…

Hm. Well, not quite, since I didn't actually mess up there - it was a Grovyle at the time I wrote that, and it's not like I'm listing every time the characters don't use obvious fourth-generation moves in chapters written before Diamond and Pearl came out - but it's still inconsistent with the current facts. Maybe I should just go fix it in the chapter to get rid of this dilemma.

Yeah, it's kind of puzzling. I was completely confident it was always red until after I'd double-checked some clips. Maybe it's just some psychological mix-up due to the similarity of the sendout light to the more memorable white light of evolution? It could be that the association in the brain is just "white light = evolution, red light = Pokéballs" unless you've been paying special attention to the color of the Pokéball light.

I'm not sure if its a coincidence or not (not that anybody here can me tell if it is), but the colors of the pokeball are the same as its sendout/recall colors (the basic pokeball).

Huh… sorry I am late to the party but have been on a week and a half vacation this week… the only one of these goofs I have noticed was the Ariados having six legs thing. The rest went totally unnoticed by me.

You did mention the white send-out light was part of your theory on how pokeballs work. Do you have this theory written up somewhere?

No, not yet. It basically revolves around Pokémon's genetic material being able to spontaneously construct the Pokémon in a process that emits a bright white light, and this being what is happening during both hatching, evolution and Pokéball sendout.
