What is this?

Horsea is one of the few pre-generation III Pokémon to get an artwork update in Ruby and Sapphire, while notable others include Pikachu and Donphan.

I have the strategy guide of Ruby and Sapphire, I believe it's the Nintendo Power edition, and all the pre-generation III Pokémon had the old Sugimori art. Including Pikachu, Horsea, and Donphan. To my knowledge, no one got updated until FRLG. So I'm doubting the validity of this until someone can prove it to me. --ケンジガール 02:58, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Well, just put it on Donphan's page and say it was the only non-generation I Pokémon to get updated artwork for FR LG. CuboneKing 03:02, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
The thing is there's way more than just those... ht14 03:04, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
But not even Donphan was updated. According the Nintendo Power magazine, no artwork was updated until FRLG. --ケンジガール 03:06, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
I had the official Ruby and Sapphire guide from nintendo power, and I'm pretty sure I noticed that Horsea had a vastly different artwork in that guide than it used to have. In fact, it's almost the exact same as it's FRLG art. More similar to the FRLG artwork than, oh, say, the two finned artwork of Generation I and II. Hence the part about updated artwork. Weedle Mchairybug 08:28, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, you had it. I still own one, however. And I'm looking right at it now and I see Horsea's old Sugimori art. Hm... --ケンジガール 00:09, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
No, actually, I still have it. I suppose I'll try to scan it in during the weekend, and then I'll try and show you once and for all that it looks more similar to the FRLG artwork than with the old artwork. Weedle Mchairybug 01:19, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Old Sugimori
New Sugimori


I scanned that Horsea from the Nintendo Power RS guide. Anymore questions? --ケンジガール 01:29, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Can you make that transparent and move it to File:113Horsea RS.png? MaverickNate 01:33, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
You mean 116? --ケンジガール 01:39, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I did mean 116. I don't know how the 3 got there. I just wanted you to move it because we are trying to get all the previous game artwork, and it would just be one off the list. MaverickNate 01:41, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Grammar

In the Behavior section, the sentence ending in "to those who causes it" should probably be "at those who cause it." Also, it should be "coral reefs," not "corals reefs."--Trebligoniqua 15:43, 1 November 2009 (UTC

Male?

When was Misty's Horsea declared male? Someone should provide proof, but I can't because I don't have access to the episodes when it appears.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 05:15, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

First episode it's in, I think. Someone calls it a "he". —darklordtrom 08:19, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

In the original or in the dub?--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 15:50, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Although this would be better off on Talk:Misty's Horsea, you could always try Cartoon Network Video. The episode in question is one of the 45 select first-season episodes made available on Cartoon Network Video.
Careful--Cartoon Network Video currently uses a dedicated widescreen video player that stretches content originally produced in 4:3, meaning you're not getting the definitive picture...--Shiningpikablu252 16:39, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I have a problem every time I go onto that site, Blu. The video never loads in time, and my connection times out.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 22:57, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Dragon scale in platinum

I don't think Horsea hold Dragon Scales in the wild in Platinum. I caught 100 horsea looking for one and none of them were holding it, so either I have really, really, really bad luck, or they're just not there. Chum 21:57, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Trivia

Horsea is the only Pokémon not in Octillery's evolutionary line that can learn Octozooka. Is this worthy of note? --Element03 07:50, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Dragon scale in FR/LG

Horsea's page doesn't list a Dragon Scale as being a potential held item in FireRed and LeafGreen, but the Evolution-inducing held item page says Dragon Scales can be found on wild Horsea in these games? Which one is correct? --RiverAura 01:36, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
