Ruby Pokedex Spelling Error

I have an American Ruby Version, and despite what it says here, Mawile's name is spelled right in my Pokedex there. Do I have a different version, or is the information here wrong? My Ruby was bought at an American Target store about six years ago. If the info in Mawile's page here is wrong, then can anyone confirm that the spelling error actually occurs and in which versions?--Celebi96 22:03, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

You mean Mawhile? There are some spelled right, and some are spelled incorrectly. ht14 22:09, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
It just says that the misspelling is in American Ruby entries, though, and was fixed for the European release. Was it fixed in later versions of American Ruby? And if so, can we maybe pinpoint a date when it might have been fixed?--Celebi96 22:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Trivia Fact No Longer True

Since the new generation five pokemon have been reveald, Giaru a new pure steel type has made an appearance. Because of this the following fact should be changed as it is proven to be false. "Mawile, along with Registeel, are the only pure Steel-type Pokémon. As such, this makes Mawile the only non-legendary pure Steel-type." EpisShadow 1:59 17 July 2010 (UTC)

gear isnt legendary

and the trivia should just be removed altogether then(Ataro 20:07, 17 July 2010 (UTC))

Actually, EpicShadow didn't mean Giaru, or Gear, was legendary, that was the trivia EpicShadow meant to remove, not what it would be with Giaru counted. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:08, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
Actualy I meant to point out the fact that with Giaru/Gear being an official Pokémon Mawile is no longer the only non-legendary pure steel type like the fact says it is. And I do think it would be esiest to just remove the fact unless you would prefer to wait until all the new generation Pokémon are reveald to edit the fact so it is true. The only problem is that with more pure steel types there is no longer anything unique about Mawile's type. EpisShadow 3:38 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Mawile sprites

There is a confusion on the sprites, I believe. Is the DP sprite and the HGSS sprite the same, or is the Pt sprite and the HGSS sprite the same? It's a bit tough in terms of the coloring, but it's good to know. ht14 19:52, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

The HGSS Sprite is the same as the Pt one, with the foot pointing up. The DP one is different, with the foot pointing straight. --SnorlaxMonster 12:28, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Fixed. --SnorlaxMonster 12:30, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Sprite Trivia

I can't word it good enough, but Mawile is the only pokemon to stand backwards, with its face turned to the trainer. This is true for every sprite and even for Sugimori's artwork. Exeggutor is shown to have no faces on it's back in BW and Claydol has it's face, well, everywhere... --ЫъГЬ 05:39, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

TM 30: Shadow Ball

Shadow Ball cannot be learned by Mawile in Ruby/Sapphire. The following picture was taken by me moments ago, with Ruby on my DS. 220px Gebuskrost 05:19, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

It's been removed from the Gen III section. --P S Yライダー 05:37, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Possible Name Origin

Mawile live in caves....could its name be based off the Movile Cave in Romania? Yamitora1 (talk) 10:51, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
