Off the top of my head I can't think of any Japanese names with Maru at the end, on the other hand I do know that it is in fact a traditional suffix for Japanese ships, (Piper Maru, Kobayashi Maru), some kind of good luck thing about the god who taught them how to build boats or something. Please provide at least some examples to prove this is not a made up fact. [[User:Lowlandlord|Lowlandlord]] 15:33, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking about it, and maybe Gible actually comes from Dirigible. I mean, Garchomp is like a jet in some ways, right? So maybe Gible is paying homage to the blimp. [[User:Rabid Biscuit|Rabid Biscuit]] 23:48, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

What's a 'land shark'? The Wikipedia entry (a sketch in American TV show Saturday Night Live) is unlikely to be related to Pokémon, but if it is it should at least be linked to, I think. [[User:Punkrockrevel|Punkrockrevel]] 22:55, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Revision as of 22:55, 15 August 2008

I cant seem to find where lost cave is on the sinnoh map, anyone know? - unsigned comment from Voltrex (talkcontribs)

It's a little bit hidden. You need to go the bottom of Route 206 (by heading south off the Cycling Path and cutting the trees to the right to get under the Road) and go north until you see the entrance to Wayward Cave. Then go to the left until you see the north-most pillar of Cycling Road. Stand so you are just barely visible, to the left of the Road above, and right up against the south side of the aformentioned pillar. Then take two steps to the right and go north about four or five steps. You will enter a small room visible from Wayward Cave that has a very simple X Strength puzzle. I'm not sure if Gible lives there (I would assume not, since it's still the Wayward Cave area, so it should be those encouter rates), but using Strength and pushing the middle rock forward allows access to the lower level to the left. This is where you can find TM26, Earthquake, along with other items spread through a bike maze and the evasive Gible (at level 15 usually). And the area is bright, so you won't need Flash (like for the Wayward Cave). I hope this helps. --ZellMurasame 00:17, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
