Zigzagoon and Linoone abilities?

zigzagoon & linoone have a second ability now, fyi --ANinyMouse 10:19, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Working on that. Gambler 23:36, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Should we separate it based on R/S and D/P? Tom Temprotran 05:39, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
You think? Isn't that too much work? After all, when D/P are here not many people are going to care about G III. Gambler 05:46, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
What if you add something like an asterisk, and underneath note that pokemon marked with an asterisk have only pickup in generation III? Kendai 11:06, September 13 2007
Well, now, personally, I think that it should be left as is. People will note that the ability beneath wasn't there in Gen III, so therefore, Zigzagoon/Linoone/whatever else couldn't have it. TTEchidna 08:44, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
That's assuming everyone looking at the page knows by memory which are new in IV, and it can't really hurt the article to have that memo added can it? Kendai 18:25 September 15, 2007

Gale Of Darkness?

Some Pokemon have this ability in Gale of Darkness. Anyone know the chart of what is grabbed?Machinedramon 01:26, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Multiple Pickups

I've tried making a party with a meowth, a linoone, a phanpy, a pachirisu and an aipom who all have pickup but only one will pickup an item at a time. this may be a coincidence as I havn't been doing it for very long but if anyone else notices this it might be worth mentioning on the page. Kanjo 00:56, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

It's coincidence. I have a team of six Pachirisus; I just tested, and two of them were able to pickup in the same battle. — Laoris (Blah) 02:02, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Each Pickup works individually. If you're really lucky, you could take a team of six Pickuppers into a battle and all six could Pickup an item after each battle. --Shiningpikablu252 02:45, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I would like to verify this claim as well. As the same applies to the ability Honey Gather. As a result, it is possible to initiate a honey harvest with a full party of Combee. --HechEff 17:09, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Double Hyper Potions?

In the chart, for levels 1-10 of Diamond and Pearl, it lists Hyper Potion twice, in the 5% and the 1% sections. So, is it 6%, or is it one or the other, or what? TCABF 21:57, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

No, there's a mistake there. Thanks for picking that up. — THE TROM — 07:41, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

pokémon mystery dungeon

What effect does this ability have in pokémon mystery dungeon?--Fern 24 06:12, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

10% chance after a battle

Sorry for being a noob, but does running away count as a battle? --(QQ)wertyasdf 08:02, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Well, initially I thought it would, but after spending half an hour running away from wild Pokémon, neither of my two pickupers have picked anything up yet. That doesn't necessarily mean that running away doesn't count as a battle for the purpose of pickup, I could just be really unlucky at the moment, but each time I run away it gets less likely that it does. In short it seems that it doesn't count as a battle. Werdnae (talk) 08:41, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
Running does not count as a battle. The battle must be finished. I don't know if that means it will work if you lose, but it won't work until the battle is fully completed. R.A. Hunter Blade 17:39, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Odds of picking up an item in Generation III?

Neither the chart for FR/LG nor Ruby/Sapphire explains why the percentages listed don't add up even close to 100%. Someone who knows wtf, please explain.
