I can't believe anyone would want to take this shit seriously, just because said Pokemon is 9 feet 11 inches, doesn't always have to mean 9/11. First off, Japan uses the metric system, and it just so happens that through conversion of the metric to the American system for this game, turned out that said Pokemon is 9 feet 11 inches, whoop-de-damn-doo.
Second, I don't really recall seeing deserts and mountians near New York City, last time I checked. Sure, it may be based off New York, but it doesn't mean it's a freaking scale model of the city. Seriously, where do people get this shit from?
