This is only a ridiculous coincidence, but Deoxys different forms' initials also correspond with a classic American play:

A
Streecar
Named
Desire

I'm not sure if this has been posted, but did you know...

That in Gen. 1, critical hits were determined by the speed of the pokemon? Because of this, Jolteon wrecked so much face.

Although Jolteon has higher speed, due to it's piss poor move pool in gen 1 and the omnipresence of Golem and Rhydon, Dugtrio was known as the king of critical hits because it was able to score them on the aforementioned rock types as well as other types it hit neutrally which made up for it's meager base 80 attack stat.

Alright, this is an incredibly random one, and I was reminded about it by a certain xkcd comic.

In Pokémon Channel, there is a TV channel called Relaxation Channel. When watching it, Mareep jump over a fence with a counter that displays how many have jumped while gentle music plays. Pikachu falls asleep while watching this channel. However, if you actually leave the game running for four and a half hours without changing the channel (or whatever causes the programming to reset), it will actually count all the way up to 5,000 before a commercial break.

I've attached two screenshots I took some years back.

Farfetch'd with the item Stick then uses "Slash" it will always result in a critical hit in Gen 6. (Not sure in older games too, but i only tested this in Firered so far)

Gen I has the weird thing where critical hit ratios are based on Speed, so fast things like Jolteon and Dugtrio could score critical hits almost all - if not all - of the time. The ratio did get doubled between Gens 5 and 6, and now there are a few ways to have a 100% critical hit ratio (usually involving Focus Energy) in X and Y.

Also, Frost Breath and Storm Throw have 100% critical hit ratios but I'm assuming you're not counting those.

There was a prototype legendary dog that went unused. (It was made by Muneo Saito who designed the legendary dogs) My guess is that it was eventually split into Suicune and Raikou.

This is it, these are your origins, Suicune! I'm gonna use my hyper-creative skills and name it Suikou. I'm adding that to my names for you.
