So I started reading Pokémon Adventures (also known as Pokémon Special) recently. You know if this series is supposed to be the darkest and most mature interpretation of Pokémon ever made, then why does it assume I'm stupid? (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v640/AnimeDude360/pokemonplothole.jpg)
Well Mew was known as the phantom pokemon and would have been the 150 known? It wasnt caught but at least it was seen?
Green just refers to Mew as the "phantom 151st pokemon" in that picture I posted. So there is another pokemon before Mew. But the pokemon that is actually the 150th is still being created and no one knows about it. So where are they getting that number from?
Oak is a secret team rocket agent? xD or theres one pokemon that died out and was replaced by mewtwo. xD
Extinct pokemon are already on the list. Omanyte is #138, Kabuto #140 and Aerodactyl #142. So even if a pokemon had died out, it wouldn't be removed from the list. So it's a mistake. A HUUUUUGE mistake at that. :D
