Hey guys!

Remember how this page used to be about how certain Pokémon were missing from certain games, and how it confused the hell out of everyone? Yes? Well, thanks to The Trom's efforts, we've hopefully fixed that. The page now lists Pokémon and marks which versions they are or aren't available in. For more information, check out this discussion. ---((Marton imos)) 12:15, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

New discussion

Looks good but even the not available boxes for the mystery dungeons link to the pages.--MisterE13 16:43, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

That was a design technique of Jioruji Derako. It's the same for all boxes on this page. Available or not available, they all link to the page. — THE TROM — 21:07, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Coulda' sworn it wasn't like that before but if they're all like that then it's OK. Some other templates that use a similar system might have to be changed though. (ie. Move Tutors)--MisterE13 23:23, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

G instead of B

Anyone have any problems with it as it is? The note is clear enough that Green means US Blue and Blue means the Japanese one? TTEchidna 04:07, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

This is great. The entire article is 100x better. The design just feels more welcoming. I'm ashamed I didn't think of this style before. As for the G/B thing, I think it's rather clear. MK 15:54, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Emerald safari zone vs. Birds and Regis in Pt

Why is it we have the Emerald safari zone ones outside of the table, yet for certain Pokémon in Platinum, we mention them when both groups require the national dex?--MisterE13 22:02, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

We can blame me for that. Because of the approx. 30 Emerald exclusives, I decided just to list them, or the table would be larger than the warnings previously here. Platinum didn't have as many exclusives as Emerald so I put them in the table. — THE TROM — 08:46, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Possible other tables

It might be helpful to have a table to show Pokemon completely unavailable in certain generations without trading with other generations (e.g. Mewtwo for Generation II, or Larvitar for Generation III). Perhaps even a table of those Pokemon to appear in every version of the game without trading might be interesting, if somewhat less useful. I admit, I can't really be bothered to do this myself at the moment, but I could later. Idantlol 22:25, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

The reason we haven't got these listed (particularly for Gen III) is because of the sheer amount of Pokemon excluded in the Hoenn games (see HDex). And typically, starters and legnedaries cannot be obtained in other games than their originals. — THE TROM — 06:17, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Even so, it isn't an impossible task to list 186 pokemon (if we include Jirachi and Deoxys). If the worst comes to the worst, you could just make a separate page for it. As it is, it can be quite a hassle finding information on where some pokemon are actually found. Idantlol 18:07, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Seedot in Sapphire and Lotad in Ruby?

The article claims the following: "Surskit can be found in Pokémon Emerald, but only when the TV says they're swarming somewhere. Through the same way, Lotad and Seedot can be found in Ruby and Sapphire, respectively." The second doesn't seem right to me. I have played pokémon Sapphire for over 700 hours (I know, call me lifeles) and I have never met any Seedot swarm through the tv (I did see surskit and skitty swarms however). Also I looked it up on internet and I didn't find any info about seedot being catchable in Sapphire or Lotad in ruby. Even great sites like never mention it and just say that the only way to get seedot in sapphire and lotad in ruby is by trading them from the other version. Mijzelffan 17:55, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

You need to mix records with someone from the other game. — THE TROM — 02:47, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
I have done that like fifty times with ruby players, sapphire players and emerald players. Can't someone upload a screenshot or a link to a video for evidence or something? Mijzelffan 11:28, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

HG/SS Version Exclusives

Hey I was browsing around the Net and Serebii just made a list of the version exclusive Pokémon. I don't know set the chart of them up. Could omeone do it, or tell me how? ♪♪Shiny Pachirisu :) ♪♪ 19:44, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Any news if they are going to pull the American swith-a-roo with Phanpy and Teddiursa like in Generation II?Zabbethx 21:22, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

None yet. —darklordtrom 21:24, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Generation II: Japanese or American list?

The Gen II section opens with a comment explaining that the Pokémon exclusive to either Gold or Silver are reversed between version when you compare the Japanese to the American. However, it doesn't point out which nation's list is presented... Help? Doctorhook 01:19, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
