Were are the attacks? Cerberus

Have you ever thought that we haven't had the chance to put them in on a Pokémon not often used? TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 04:56, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Well I have one, but I don't know how to put in all that. Same thing for Shuppt Cerberus

Is it worth noting that Banette resembles the old sprite assosciated with the Nightmare attack? Punkrockrevel 09:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes (MathijsP 11:32, 5 June 2008 (UTC))

GBA Sprite

It should be mentioned in the Trivia section that its arms in the GBA series are too short. Bttsstewart 23:42, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

No because they aren't. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 00:07, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes they are. Look, they're like little nubs compared to its arms later in DP. Bttsstewart 05:27, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure they're being bent. If they look short to you, then that's your opinion. ~ solaris 05:29, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually they are a bit short see Spr 3r 354.png The Pikachu PIKA23

Pokémon are displayed differently in each generation. That's part of what makes the generations unique. I personally think this is never something we should worry about, unless the sprites are changed for a controversial reason or something or other. In this particular case, we only have two sets of sprites to compare - and perhaps the Gen IV ones are abnormally long? Either way, sprite trivia sucks and it shouldn't be included. It's just one of those things people can see for themselves. — THE TROM — 10:17, 3 June 2009 (UTC)


It's Jupetta, not Juppeta. The main page doesn't seem to understand this, and mixes and matches them. But with editing turned off, I can't change it.Satosuke 18:21, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Open Mouth

The trivia section discusses occasions where Banette opens its mouth, and even shows a picture of its open mouth in the anime. I think its platinum sprite opens its mouth whenever it's sent out. Delspencerdeltorro 03:24, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

    I should specify, I've only noticed this with its back sprite. Delspencerdeltorro 03:25, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


On the Artificial Pokemon page, it says "Banette is a plush doll that was thrown away and was possessed by Shuppet." Is this true? If so, where was this tidbit found? I am Darth Mewtwo... Fear me, and my team made entirely of Mewtwo!!! 04:16, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

It's in Banette's PokeDex. However, I have not found anything about it being possessed by Shuppet. :/ --Han Ji-Wan 04:22, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
