We should have an article, or an explanation, about this "swirling dust". I mean, what are they (i don't have BW) ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 06:59, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Sometimes, when you're walking in a route or cave, randomly a piece of grass will start shaking or a pile of dust will show up, and you'll hear a noise. If you go and enter it without going off-screen or encountering a Pokémon, you'll either encounter a Pokémon(usually Tabunne in grass and Doryuzu in caves) or in caves, sometimes you'll get an item. They're the only place to find the Jewels as far as I know, but you can get rare items like stones from them too. Bluesun 09:23, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
I believe there is also dark spots on bridges. However, we do need a page about this. --SnorlaxMonster 09:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Maybe, we could put an explanation on the Wild Pokémon encounter section, or it could be an article under the special tiles template. ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 03:57, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I think it would deserve its own article. If it turns out to be far too limited in its scope, we can merge it afterwoods. --SnorlaxMonster 12:49, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Player battles?

Do jewels get used up if theyre used against another player or do they work like berries? and whatever the answer is it should be included on this pageAres5566 14:27, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Multiple-turn attacks?

If a Pokémon uses a move that continues for several turns, such as Outrage or Petal Dance, will the move receive the boost for every hit, or will it only apply to the first one? I'm assuming it applies to all of them since you only "used" the move once, but I'm not sure... Diachronos 14:53, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

No, you technically "used" the move multiple times; you just only chose the move once. So I'm pretty sure only the first attack would be boosted. --AndyPKMN (talk) 17:27, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Fairy Gem?

Is there a Fairy Gem? ★~Darklight~★ 17:46, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

What the heck? This needs some serious clean up

Ok, this article it not only out of date, it also is contradicting itself repeatedly. Every single gem says it raises the power of its type by 30% but also then says 50% in gen V despite it being introduced in Gen V. Which is it, 30% or 50%? Yamitora1 (talk) 22:31, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Presumably 30% is in Gen VI. --Wynd Fox 22:40, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Regardless, that should be displayed like this "raises power by 30%" Not 30% (50% in Generation VI) Yamitora1 (talk) 23:13, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
