Gregory Gay at 4colorrebellion.com recently wrote an interesting blog on random things that you may have never noticed about the Pokemon franchise. Go to the source for the full article.

Pokemon is a pretty crazy franchise. Sure, any series that has had that many titles is sure to get complicated, especially one full of hundreds upon hundreds of characters. There are bound to be tons of cool little facts and references that have fallen through the cracks.

Fortunately, I’m crazy enough to have put in the time and effort to research a few of the cooler ones. Did you know about the relationship between Pokemon and the Sega platformer Pulseman? How about the origin of Mareep’s name or the reason why certain Pokemon occupy certain Pokedex positions? Oh, and do you know truth of what lies beneath Cubone’s mask?

Do I have your interest? Read on, young Pokemon trainer.

    Haha! Wow, even if it does prove that someone might be either slightly too obsessed, or just exceptionally observant, none the less it's rather entertaining in it's own way.

    That was a very interesting read, I never noticed any of those things before. Cubone is actually my favorite Pokemon, haha.

    Haha, Cubone and Kangaskhan. I always heard the speculation that Cubone resembles Charmander without the skull helmet.

    I can't believe I never noticed the Girafarig thing and the uno-dos-tres at the end of Articuno's, Zapdos's, and Moltres's name. o:

    I don't really see the cubone/kangaskan thing though.
