Evolves in the same Gen? I'm pretty sure that Steelix was introduced in Gen. II. Or am I just misunderstanding something? --Blastoise Rules!!! 19:29, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Bruno has one in Gen II. TTEchidna 19:50, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
The phrasing is a bit bad. Basically, that trivia item doesn't count Bruno's Onix in Gen I but does count it from after Steelix's introduction in Gen II. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
I added something to that trivia. Well, I didn't do it the right way, I know that. But at least people won't be mistaken again. TheBlazikenMaster 00:23, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
This still isn't coherent, but I can't think of a way to fix it to make it better. Anyone have good ideas? -- evkl (need to talk?) 23:01, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


I was thinking, and I thought that it was more likely that onix is based on an Earthworm due to it's ground attributes. What do you make of this? 3190 21:12, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Both are sectioned off; Both can move quickly underground. BUT Onix won't come out of the ground when it is raining like earthworms do. The is a connetion though. TESHIGIGAS 21:16, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Egg Pokemon

Is it interesting to note that Onix is the largest pokemon that can legally hatch from an egg?

Go for it. But capitalize the P and accent the é or else. TTEchidna 22:14, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I apologize for the tons of uploads

My computer seems to be messing up and posting the wrong images. I'm sorry. - 050294 19:57, 13 September 2009 (UTC)


In the Special Abilities section, the sentence that starts "If Onix takes a hard enough blow and it's body falls apart," that should be "its," not "it's." The Behavior section is a run-on sentence. In the Habitat section, there seems to be a preposition missing, possibly "in."--Trebligoniqua 12:27, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Too much useless trivia

Doesn't this article, among others, have some useless comparations as trivia? I mean, who cares if Onix and Swablu are the only pokémon to change their primary type when they evolve? Shouldn't it be deleted?

Sorry, first editing here, so I don't know if I should do that... Thorfinn 22:00, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, that's pretty important. They're the only dual-typed Pokémon to have that happen. Similar scenario with Gloom (Grass-Poison) and Bellossom (Grass). That's trivia for you. ht14 22:10, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Editing a Sprite

Can somebody fix the shiny sprite for Emerald? DarthMartian7 23:26, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

What's wrong with it? CuboneKing 23:28, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

First appearance?

Umm, Onix first appeared in episode 1, not Showdown at Pewter City. :\ Ugoz 03:35, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

I think it's the first major appearance. Origami is math for the hands. -Martin Grant, MathPath 23:35, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
