If you may not have noticed, the mean average for Pokemon sizes in the Anime and the games themselves is vastly different. What I was wondering is which size cannon do we use? I, like most Pokemon fans picture Charizard to be around 9-13ft tall in truth, he's only 5'07 in otherwords, shorter than I am, a 14 year old school girl. So yeah, sure some Pokemon are shorter than you'd think, but get this that's not the only problem. Imagine say a pokemon like Ghastly, you'd think him to be around the size of a basket ball, yeah? He's 5 friggin' feet in diameter people. Big enough to not be able to fit through a door if he couldn't go intangible. So what do we do? Do we go with the Anime or the games?

We *usually* go with what Bulbapedia provides for the sizes, since we use them as a source for our profile creation.

Yeah...But it really isn't what we picture in our minds when we think of those Pokemon. Ah well, man is this confusing.

On EJ, we go by game canon, not anime canon as the anime tends to be a little weird with their mechanics.
You could always make your characters a bigger or smaller, as long as they stay a reasonable size.

...On the topic of Gastly, he's literally a ball of gas, so personally I think he would be able to make himself smaller or bigger at will. xD;

Lol, go Nintendo for their consistency fail.
As Jira said, we stick with game canon mostly.
On occasion we pull from the anime, but it's very rare.

All right I guess...But what about Dunceparce? He's about the size of your average person, maybe all of the Dunceparce that are left behind the infection are Pygmies or something?

Dunsparce is actually the same size as Salamence, last time I checked.
He's actually based off a japanese mythological creature "Tsuchinoko", which is like the japanese equivalent of Big Foot lmao. Since it's based off a mythological creature, I think Dunsparce's size is fine.

...although how it still manages to be such a rare Pokemon and stay hidden so well confuses me. lol.

Be aware of our game canon rules when changing the size, as Mewtwo will correct you if it's too different.

I know the tsuchinoko a mythical snake in Japanese folklore. So, as Jirachi said the size is fine, but the part of hiding is more trivial to me.
