001Bulbasaur RG.png Due to special coding in place in the article, the artwork featured on this article will change every year on November 21 and October 15 in celebration of the releases of Gold and Silver in Japan, and Gold and Silver in the United States. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox. This changes every year, so when the time comes, here to return to the page and change the display.

Origin

>So you don't think it has anything to do with dragons at all? A lizard like thing who's name includes "ryu"? Any better ideas?

It looks like a pun to me. --Ketsuban - unsigned comment from Transfinite (talkcontribs)

Go for the easy ones - 電流 is in the dictionary. Besides, it would be quite out of place compared to the rest of the family. - 振霖T 01:47, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

>It already IS outta place with the rest of the family. That thing ain't a sheep, that's for sure. - Zeta - unsigned comment from Zeta (talkcontribs)

I think it would be far better to identify the 'electric dragon' meaning through identifying the fragments - its the same as the English prefixes, infixes and suffixes. You can't disregard a meaning only because its not in the dictionary - all Japanese and English fragments are not in the dictionary and yet are used to form Pokemon names. - unsigned comment from Ainohuyuah (talkcontribs)

Could it have been inspired by a naked sheep? Agent 448δ | DP | 11:12, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Er, did you ever see a naked sheep that looked like a big yellow lizard with a glowing tail? O_o --Zeta 11:45, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Trivia

The page is protected so I decided to make an edit request here.

Ampharos, yes indeed cannot learn Tail Glow even though it's tail glows. However since the name of Tail Glow is made up by us Americans it is techincally "Firefly Light", which is it's Japanese name. It would make since why Ampharos can't learn the move because it isn't a fire fly -- Landfish7 20:27, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Manaphy learns the attack yet it's not a firefly at all. PDL 01:09, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Edit request

Why is the HGSS art getting warped? Somebody needs to fix this, but I have no idea how. --Mostly Harmless 02:18, 20 April 2010 (UTC)


→Pokedex entries

|heartgolddex=The tail's tip shines brightly and can be seen from far away. It acts as a beacon for lost people.

Pokedex Trivia

"Ampharos' LeafGreen and HeartGold Pokedex data are exactly the same, despite having no connection to each other. The same goes for FireRed and SoulSilver's Pokedex data." This trivia is wrong, there is a connection. LeafGreen entries for all generation II Pokemon were drawn from Gold entries, and FireRed entries for all generation II Pokemon were likewise drawn from Silver entries. HeartGold and SoulSilver did the same thing, respectively. This is, as I said, true for all generation II Pokemon and so is not notable. If no one objects, I'll remove that trivia.--Celebi96 11:53, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
