Zebstrika's move?

What was the name of a move that Zebstrika used against Palpitoad that was very similliar to Tackle?--Omojuzeforever (talk) 16:18, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

The first move was Double-Edge and the other one was Facade. AdynizWanna talk? 17:14, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Learning from Gym Battles

is it good trivia to say that Ash used strategies similar to those he fought in previous gym battles? think about it; Palpitoad's poisoning is a link to his battle with Roxie, Leavanny using String Shot on Sawk's arms (his main asset) is a link to Burgh's Leavanny unbalancing Pikachu with the same move and finally Krookodile's Aerial Ace being a homage to his battle with Brycen, where Beartic also knew the move. Is it trivia or just mere coincidence? Azure/ChromeVoid42 (talk) 19:31, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Its just a coincidence. You are thinking way too much about it.UltimateSupreme(T@lk) 14:38, 19 December 2012 (UTC)


  • Leavanny's Swarm ability not activating until it's health was low; is that an error? The Swarm ability is always active, regardless of health. This is more closely-related to the Overgrow ability (which would still be an error) (DuelKING (talk) 17:40, 30 March 2013 (UTC)DuelKINGDuelKING (talk) 17:40, 30 March 2013 (UTC))
When a Pokémon with Swarm uses a Bug-type move, the power will increase by 1.5× if the user has less than or equal to ⅓ of its maximum HP remaining. Looking at the description, I believe the anime's portrayal of Swarm was correct. --Pokemaster97 18:03, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
