It has long been rumored that Gengar is Clefairy's shadow, as they both have spike-like ears on their heads, they have similar body structure, and Gengar is called the Shadow Pokèmon. Also, their signature type attacks can't hurt each other, as you can't touch your shadow.

*Awesome Fact*:
When the designs for Blaziken were being drawn, it resembled a body like that of Latias, almost if it was a fusion of Latias and Blaziken. The design was then made into two different but similar designs making Latias and Blaziken.

Hmm....

*opens google*

Magneton is made by three Magnemite, yet weighs 10 times more. Magnemite weighs 13.2 pounds, but Magneton weighs 132 pounds.

Originally Marowak was to evolve into a Kangaskhan, but at the last minute they decided to change this. Kangaskhan became pre-evolved, but the developers didn't delete the code, they moved it. Unfortunately, this didn't work out and Pokemon number 000 was created.

MISSINGNO

Missingno still has the ability to evolve into Kangaskhan, and it has either a pixel sprite or a sprite of a removed Pokemon. Missingno is also a Bird/Normal type (bird, not flying) in Red/Blue and Normal/999 in Yellow. Finding a Missingno will increase the 6th item in your bag to 128 or 225. Weird, huh?

This is because (in my own opinion) Magneton stores more electricity than the normal Magnemite. Since this is true, Magneton weighs more because of the electricity Magneton stores.

FireRed/LeafGreen has an anti-cheat feature where hacking in Mew would cause it to not listen. This is not in any of the DS games, however. To elaborate, Mew ignores every order you give it, regardless of what badges you earned. Also, the same thing happens with a hacked Deoxys.

Only issue with that is that electricity weighs next to nothing...

Magneton needs more room to store it. This makes it larger. And heavier

Hmmmm so ever heard of the failed attempts to Clone Mew..... Well ever wonder about Ditto... think about it, Mew and Ditto are the same weight; 8.8 pounds. They are also the same color and they have the same shiny color, too. Mew and Ditto know Transform. They can both learn every move in Pokémon, but in Ditto's case, only for a certain amount of PP. Ditto is mostly spotted in the Cinnibar Island Mansion where the Mew and Mewtwo experiments took place. Mew's experiment went wrong and it came out as a new Pokémon...?
Mew is said to contain every Pokémon's DNA and Ditto is said it can breed with every single Pokémon, with very few exceptions outside of Legendary Pokémon. If you watched the movie Pokémon The Movie I: Mewtwo Strikes Back, it said there was a failed experiment in the beginning. Now that I look back in it, it could have been Ditto.... Suspect

While this does make sense, you are missing one detail. While yes it is very possible, Ditto was one of the beginning pokemon. Just like Nidoking and Magneton. Mew's experiment went wrong and it came out as a new pokemon. That pokemon was Mewtwo.

Here's an interesting little thing I found. It's the highest amount of damage that can be done to any Pokemon, ever. It involves two Cherrim, a Shuckle, and a Combee. It's extremely unlikely, but here goes.

Shuckle faces Combee in a triple battle. His partners both use Helping Hand, have Flower Gift, and the weather is sunny. Shuckle gets hit with a Power Trick to switch his Attack and Defense, and gets hit with a Skill Swap to give him Pure Power. Shuckle has been given six stages of Attack boosts of any kind and must use Defense Curl for five turns and then use Rollout. If Shuckle's attack hits for all five turns and on the fifth turn is a critical hit while holding a Metronome on a Combee that has max lowered Defense after being hit with a defense reducing move like Screech...

*inhales* Combee will be hit for 481,266,000 damage. Or the equivalent of trying to stop a Hydrogen Bomb with your face.
