How can Octillery use Flamethrower? - unsigned comment from Theryguy512 (talkcontribs)

It just can. It doesn't make any sense, but it can. Just check the guidebook or Serebii.net. Or you could try it yourself in-game. ShinyTalk | Contribs 12:53, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Well serribii says that it knows fire blast. --Theryguy512 12:59, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

But Bulbagarden's synopsis from AG180 says Octillery used Flamethrower. --Netto-kun 00:53, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Do we evin need this page? Cerberus 02:56, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

I personally don't think so, but I want the opinions of others before I do anything. --PAK Man Talk 02:48, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
I do not see the point of this pageC Is for Cookie
Well how many episodes was it in??? I think we should keep it. --Theryguy512 13:39, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
I think it's needed. Since Harley is a main rival, his Pokémon should be there too. Oh and it was Fire Blast, not Flamethrower. TESHIGIGAS 13:41, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Re: Theryguy512: According to its profile, it appeared in two episodes; one of them was the episode where Harley defeated May. The other was the Grand Festival, where all it did was win Harley's appeal. In my eyes, that does not make it notable.
Re: Tesh: While I agree that Harley is a main rival, so is Gary. Does that mean we should have an article about all of Gary's Pokémon (ie, Krabby, Nidoking, Golem, Scizor, etc.)? --PAK Man Talk 13:45, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Good Point. But If it appeared more then once I think that it's notable. TESHIGIGAS 13:47, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Eh, my personal views on it are quality over quantity. I'm not going to do anything about it now, since as of now I'm getting mixed responses. --PAK Man Talk 13:55, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Really?

Is this article really needed?--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

Yes. Trainer-c 14:08, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
There is almost no real information on this page other than the two episodes it was in....--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
It meets the notability standards, and has way more information than some articles. By the logic you are using the article for Ash's Primeape would be unneeded. Trainer-c 14:54, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
What I am trying to say is that this page needs more info than a list of the two episodes it was in--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
I don't think it will ever appear again if May doesn't come back to the group for a season!--KukiTalk 15:00, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
It's better than some other articles I have seen. Oak-leaf Knight, stop creating edit wars here and there. I don't want you to be another Shiny Noctowl. It's Da Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links06:15 26 May 2008
As I stated earlier, the darn thing only had one significant appearance, and that was in defeating Munchlax at its first contest. Besides that, what did it do? Ash's Primeape is notable, yes, because it was owned by a main character (ie, Ash, Misty, Brock, May, Dawn, Jessie, James) for more than one scene in one episode. Harley is a secondary character who has the odds against him that he'll ever appear again. This thing, which helped him win one contest and one appeal, does not meet notability requirements. I support its redirection to Harley's article. --PAK Man Talk 00:04, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Decision time

Time to decide this once and for all; is this article notable or not?

My opinion; redirect it. The only thing it did was help Harley win a contest. That is nowhere near notable. Now, if it were on the same level as, say Harley's Cacturne, then I would agree with it being kept. However, when all you can say about a Pokémon was that it won one battle and one appeal, I'm afraid that's not enough to warrant it being kept. Thoughts? --PAK Man Talk 03:36, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Eh, shouldn't we decide on Wigglytuff first? --Shiningpikablu252 03:39, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't really matter to me. I just figured this was less notable since Wigglytuff appeared in recent flashbacks. I'll post on its page as well. --PAK Man Talk 03:43, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I think this page shall leave, it's not that major, I mean, I didn't even remember he had an Octillery.--Tavisource 03:44, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I vote that it should go. MaverickNate 03:45, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Trash it. --ケンジガール 04:01, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I guess trash it, inless you want to elaborate on its appearances--KukiTalk 16:59, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
