"Vitamin" accuracy

You call Zinc, Calcium, Iron VITAMINS? They are elements, metals, not any "vitamins". Well, Pokémon Fans don't have to be perfect in chemistry but calling them vitamins means COMPLETELY NO KNOWLEDGE! --Maxim 17:33, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Sheesh, calm down Maxim. Carnivine
"Vitamin: Any of a group of organic substances essential in small quantities to normal metabolism, found in minute amounts in natural foodstuffs or sometimes produced synthetically: deficiencies of vitamins produce specific disorders. Examples include Retinol (Vitamin A) • B vitamins: Thiamine (B1) • Riboflavin (B2)• Niacin (B3)• Pantothenic acid (B5)• Pyridoxine (B6)• Biotin (B7)• Folic acid (B9) • Cyanocobalamin (B12) • Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) • Ergocalciferol and Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D) • Tocopherol (Vitamin E) • Naphthoquinone (Vitamin K) • Calcium • Choline • Chlorine • Chromium • Cobalt • Copper • Fluorine • Iodine • Iron • Magnesium • Manganese • Molybdenum • Phosphorus • Potassium • Selenium • Sodium • Sulfur • Zinc •"
Don't flame people, especially when they know what they're talking about. Many vital minerals required for the human body ARE considered vitamins. --Zeta 17:45, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh, and for the record, if you're reading this - I really don't like the tone you've been taking with people lately - both in the forums and on the pedia. Going around yelling at people in a constant rage is not acceptable behavior. --Zeta 17:56, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Nooooo, minerals are microelements and macroelements, not vitamins. --Maxim 17:57, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Reguardless, they are referred to as vitamins throughout the games. So there. ^_^ --Paperfairy 18:05, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Paperfairy is right. So is Zeta. Maxim, you are really too angry at other people. So please stop yelling at everyone who doesn't think the exact same way you do. Carnivine
Carnivine, you're annoying, too. Because you're still questioning me. That's not your problem Carnivine. I know I'm not perfect and you DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME THIS! The thing YOU do is equal to minimodding on forums! And it's considered as WRONG! --Maxim 18:17, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
All I'm asking is for you to just relax and stop yelling at everyone, including me. Carnivine
This discussion is over. Regardless of what they are in the real world, they are Vitamins in Pokémon. Any efforts to change the page otherwise by anyone will be dealt with harshly. --Argy 03:43, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Rare candy = revive?

Is it worth noting that when a fainted pokemon is given a rare candy, it gains actual HP by the amount max HP goes up, meaning a rare candy can serve as an emergency revive in a desperate situation? --Kendai 10:52, September 9, 2007

Well, so would an HP up, sometimes. TTEchidna 05:24, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, this is the type of thing that can easily change between generations since it's not intentional, but i think i tried HP up in gen 3 to see if it worked, and it didn't i'll probably need to check again though. --Kendai 8:17 September 12 2007

nope, HP up doesn't work for some reason. i also tried evolution stones, no actual HP gain, just raised max HP. though this is spread among enerations, i recently tried the HP up in pearl, and a while back i was trying stones in emerald. --Kendai 18:19 September 15, 2007

I think i got off track though, i was mainly asking if the fact is noteworthy. Does anyone think it's worth adding? --Kendai 00:00 September 19, 2007

Hp up = what?

What happens when you are using Hp Up? I have tryed it several times and haven't seen any change. Jacce 13:34, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Rare Candy, based on Rock Candy?


Whilst playing Earthbound the other day I was wondering whether it would be worth mentioning that the item Rare Candy might be based on the item Rock Candy from that game.

The Rock Candy was used quite similarly to increase hp/pp stats after when leveling up.

I thought there might be a connection, after all Creatures Inc. who makes the Pokemon games was previously Ape Inc, responsible for Earthbound.Chary 20:08, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Rare candy with box trick

Can the stat flaws caused by rare candies be remedied with the box trick? - unsigned comment from Sebb (talkcontribs)

You would probably be better off asking this question in the forums.--Boywonder01 17:32, 22 June 2008 (UTC)


Evolving Pokémon with Rare candy

Currently trying to determine, can a rare candy be used to evolve a Pokémon if the Rare Candy puts it on its proper evolution level? Wojjan 16:58, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Meaning if you give a level 35 Charmeleon a Rare Candy, would it evolve? Yes. Unless you cancelled the evolution. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 17:05, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for checking it out, I think we could add this to the description of the Rare Candy Wojjan 11:51, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
But... it's what normally happens. It raises it a level. TTEchidna 18:48, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
Yet Day-Care also levels Pokémon, yet they don't evolve there. I do think that one line in the description couldn't hurt here.
