    Uno, dos, cuatro, ten.

    Nailed it.

    In all seriousness, I took 3 or 4 years of Japanese as a kid and still remember most of the alphabet. Reading-wise I can scrape by. Speaking-wise, not so much. >_>

    I could theoretically count up to around 9,999,999 or something like that. Numbers were one thing really drilled into my head during Japanese classes.

    Yes, when I took karate as a child we would count from 1 to 10 in Japanese while doing some exercises. However, instead of yon for 4 we would say shi.

    Yup, you can say either. 9 can also be pronounced as kyu or ku and 8 can be pronounced as either shichi or hachi. Depending on the situation, one is usually used over the other. Yon is usually used instead of shi because shi sounds close to the pronunciation of the word meaning "death," which is why 4 is considered an unlucky number.

    Ichi, Ni, San, ???, Go. I can almost make it, but for some reason I can never remember what four is. I can't go any higher than five, either.

    Yep, just as how in America/Europe buildings often don't have a 13th floor, in Japan and China, buildings often lack a 4th.

    I probably couldn't of the top of my head. I don't know much Japanese at all because I'm awful at learning other languages.

    Içi, ni, san, ton, go, roku, nana, haçi, kyū, jū.
    But I remember reading somewhere that sometimes i, ro, ha, ni, ho, he, to, çi, ri, nu is also sometimes used (like the A, B, C of English).

    Edit: Oops typo, is 'yon' not 'ton'

    In Japanese? Definitely not. The only word I know in Japanese is "Nihon," which I'm pretty sure just means "Japan."
    Now, in Spanish, I can count to 999,999,999,999,999 (I, uh, forget the word for quadrillion. Unlike million, billion, and trillion, "quadrillion" en español no es "cuadríllon")
    I can count to three in German though.

    Wasn’t that Unova Dragon Type Pokémon Dieno and his evolution line have numbers 1-3 in German. Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres have the first three numbers n Spanish at the end.

    Deino (Ein), Zweilous (Zwei (pronounced zvy)), and Hydreigon (Drei). That's the only reason I know how to count to three in German.
