Egg Group Name

Why is this egg group called "Ground" on Bulbapedia if all my official guides call it the "Field" egg group? Sean... Lord of the Shadows!!! 22:56, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

That's what it's called inside the game's data, I'm pretty sure.. Tina 22:57, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
In Stadium 2 I've only seen "Ground". TTEchidna 02:56, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
But Stadium 2 is years out of date. It's not the Tin Tower anymore, is it?--Purimpopoie 03:20, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
Well apparently it's called "Field" in Pokédex 3D. Guess that finalizes it. But don't anyone go moving it quite yet. TTEchidna 09:37, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Smeargle

Can Smeargle pass down any egg move to any Pokemon in this egg group? Dexington 14:11, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Direct cpoypaste from the article: The inclusion of Smeargle, a Pokémon capable of learning almost every move in the game, makes chain breeding relatively easy in this group. In other words, yes. Werdnae (talk) 19:56, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Regional Variants

Should Pokemon such as Diglett/Dugtrio have their Alolan forms listed alongside them? They have different movepools than their non-Alolan forms. So for the purposes of breeding they're distinct from each other.--Voltdetector (talk) 21:52, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Furthermore, should Pokemon with different forms have separate listings on these pages as well? I notice some legendaries on the Undiscovered page have their forms listed separately. Or should it just be for cases like regional variants. Where they DO have different egg moves. And are more important for these pages.--Voltdetector (talk) 20:08, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
I personally think they shouldn't since their assigned egg groups don't change and they're essentially the same species. I'd also make the argument that Pokémon with different forms, such as the Legendaries listed in the Undiscovered Egg Group shouldn't be listed either.PDL (talk) 02:25, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
