This is really weird, so I'll do my best to explain. Basically, Episode I came out when Pokemon was in full swing. Well, my parents were REALLY against me seeing Star Wars at the time, so they tried my best to shelter me from it (ie distracting me from commercials, ranting about it, ect.), so I pretty much knew nothing about it. Well, during its release, some kids were explaining Star Wars to my teacher, and they had some pictures from the internet, and I walked by just as they were showing a picture of Watto. And this was my reaction:
"Oh no!! What did they DO to Scyther?! He looks deformed!!"
Thats right ladies and gents: I thought that Watto was a deformed Scyther from Pokemon.
