Shiny Outline

Is Grovyle the first to evolve like that? I'm pretty sure Charmander evolved in a similar manner in EP043. If I'm wrong, please pardon me. Can someone confirm it? - ClingOn 05:56, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

False trivia?

"This is the second time that Ash and one of his rivals have a Pokémon of the same type of species" Can someone elaborate on this please? I don't recall any rival matching this. And if its talking about the actual species then its impossible since Sceptile is the ONLY Forest species Pokemon.--Lycos Ex Mortis 03:27, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Ash and Ritchie have a lot of the same Pokémon. They both own Pikachu, and Ritchie also owns Butterfree and Charmander, which Ash had previously owned. --ZestyCactus 03:47, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes but that doesn't mean Ash has a rival with a Pokemon of the same species as Sceptile. Again I refer to the fact that Sceptile is a FOREST species and is the only one of that species. Show proof of him having a rival with the same species at that time.--Lycos Ex Mortis 00:31, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
This might be zoological term, not Pokémon. Then "species" = "names of Pokémon". Even if not - Tyson has a Sceptile too. But in any case, this trivia is false because prior to this episode there was (names and species match):
  • Ritchie with Pikachu, Charmander/Charmeleon, Butterfree and Taillow;
  • Gary with Squirtle and Crabby (not counting the rest of a couple of hundreds of Pokémon, some of whom Ash probably has);
  • Tyson with Donphan. Chilist 01:44, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
