A Note

First of all, I removed the information of a short list of Pokemon that have the same cries to help summarize on how the system actually works. Second of all, I removed the Crobat cry thing, because that's pure speculation. Based on how the game works, Missingno. was improperly assigned Zubat's cry with a different pitch, just like the other Missingno's with Zapdos's cry but with a different pitch.

Hmm... So which are the different cries, and what Pokémon have each? Or is it as easy as dividing evo family? TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 06:53, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I added the Crobat thing myself, but I didn't add the part about "considering an evolution of Golbat". I personally believe it was only just a coincidence. It's supposed to be trivia, after all. But yeah, keep speculation out. System Error 09:06, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Similar Cries

I know this sounds crazy, but I used the Cry Feature on the Pokédex in Diamond and Pearl and although they sound similar, no two cries are the same. They have different sound waves and the meters that show volume don't have the same pattern, but if this isn't worth putting in/taking out of the article, Machop and Omanyte might be worth mentioning. I have also noticed that maybe Chansey's cry and Pidgeot's cry are branches of the same cry. If you want more justification for Charizard's and Rhyhorn's cries being different, there is more background noise in Charizard's cry than Rhyhorn's. Superbreeder 02:22, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I've compared the cries using a Wave-editor and Charizard's and Rhyhorn's are the EXACT same. No other Cries are the same, but they're really similar. Some Cries also may be similar like Machop's and Omanyte's but their pitch is slightly different, so it's not considered the same. Also I kept that Poliwag's and Ditto's are the same, 'cause they're really similar, althought Ditto's like 0.01 second longer. hfc2X 02:35, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Pikachu's Cry

Will someone who knows the actual method it was done with (actual v/a recording? i think it is) make a note about Pikachu's cry in Pokémon Yellow? LordArceus 17:00, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Jun'ichi Masuda actually talks about that in this blog entry: If someone who knows more about programming wants to take a stab at clarifying/summarizing the information in the entry, have at it. Lucentas 18:23, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

About The cries

It is ok if we start using Pokémon cries in every Pokémon page? I mean like the Pokémon footprints, but upload them in *.ogg format. I can do it personally, because I extract the cries from their original games (Gen I Pokémon from Red, Blue and Yellow, and so on) because in Gen III or IV games they lose quality. hfc2X 19:20, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

An admin had better make the final decision, but I see no reason why not. That would be excellent! LordArceus 19:28, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
its on our big list of "things to do" but, it its not a priority. -- MAGNEDETH 23:18, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Pikachu´s words?

"... Ash (Pikapi), Misty (PiKachupi), Brock (PikaChu), Togepi (Pipipi), Team Rocket (Pipikachu), and "My name is Pikachu" (Pika, Pikachu)." Is that true? If it is, where did that info come from? (also, sorry for my bad english) Pkqls 05:46, 10 May 2009 (UTC)Pkqls

Times in the anime where it is obvious what Pikachu would be saying, such as when the group is introducing themselves to a new character or searching for someone. Werdnae 05:52, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Individual Cries

Responding to a request on Bulbasaur's talk page, I'm trying to compile a list of the individual Generation 1 cries. On a quick runthrough I'm down to 74 (double the actual number), but there'll be some obvious ones when I try in a less systematic way another day. When I get this down to 60, will anyone be interested in helping me out for the last few? I can easily crowbar in Generation 2 afterwards. Punkrockrevel 10:58, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
