Exclamation Mark

On the page is says that an exclamation mark appears over the partner Pokémon if you and the Pokémon are facing down, side by side. I was standing facing left, with my Pokémon behind me also facing left (looking at me), and the exclamation mark appeared above me once, and my partner twice. However, when it appeared above my partner, it was for Pokémon I either hadn't seen or hadn't caught, so could this be the real factor for whether the exclamation mark appears above you of the partner?

Interesting. I completed my HeartGold national dex last month, but I can test this in my SoulSilver version. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 22:14, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Hmm.. I'll check too, then. R.A. Hunter Blade 23:58, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Good rod in HG/SS

In HeartGold, at least, the Good Rod isn't found in the Olivine Café, but rather in the building above the Pokécenter in Olivine. Eckankar 10:48, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

This might help with Consecutive Fishing math

Ok, so I caught my first Shinny through chain fishing the other day, wasn't even trying, forgot all about chain fishing until I caught a shinny male Poliwhirl. I was actually after its evolved form, Politoad before it popped up. I figure this was after 20 attempts to get a normal Politoad, the exact amount i cannot say but I am certain of 20.

The second Shinny I got was the next day, which was a male Relicanth. I did however keep track, and was surprised about how soon I caught it. After 10 consecutive bites I reeled in the shinny living fossil Pokémon, however before that I caught 2 Seadras back to back so maybe that did something to the chain.

The third shinny was a female Alomomola which was caught after 38 consecutive bites.

I'm not sure if any of that can help the more math gifted researchers come up with the numbers, but here it is all the same. Good luck. Yamitora1 (talk) 14:46, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Problem is it's entirely random, and some people are luckier than others. Also for future reference, there is only one "n" in shiny.----BigBadBatter 21:46, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

List of Pokémon obtainable by fishing?

Is there a list somewhere detailing which Pokémon can be obtained via fishing in each game, with details on in-game locations/rods used? I'm wondering because I want to know what shinies can be obtained through chain fishing. Randomwaffle23 (talk) 02:07, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

If you go to a location article it will list the Pokémon that can be caught by fishing in that area. --Spriteit (talk) 02:50, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
