4. Even though Jessie and James act like they're all cool and old, they're both actually only 17 years old!
5. Contrary to the beleif of "PokeMon" being a japanese word, it's not. The word is actually an amalgram of the two English words: "Pocket Monster". The name was changed because people felt the name was too close to an existing property called "Monster in your Pocket".

10. That even though on Red/Blue versions, even though Pokémon don't show what genders they are, that you can still tell wether a Pokémon is a male or female? First you must catch a Pokémon. If the Pokemon has a high attack rating, it's a male, but if it's defense is high, it's a female! Pokemon such as the ledgendary birds, Mewtwo, or mew, don't have genders.
11. That the PokéMon TCG for game boy has a typo? The card "Ninetales" is spelled "Ninetails", which is incorrect!
