Just wondering, but how did a Gen I card have its origin in something from a Gen III game, especially when it doesn't even share its name with the Ability in question? I'm not understanding this. --Transfinite | Talk 22:11, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

It's more trivia than origin, but we generally put attack/Power-related trivia in the Origin section anyway. I have no problem with it, since it explicitly states that the Power in question is not related to the Ability. --P o L i 23:07, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
But the Ability doesn't even have the same name as the Pokémon Power. "Run Away" is a fan translation. They are completely unrelated in every way. --Transfinite | Talk 02:54, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm confused. What is the translation for the Japanese Poké-Power, if it isn't Run Away? --P o L i 18:24, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Both are to 'Run away', yet the nuances are slightly different. Nigeashi(Gen3) is to run away on foot whereas Nigemakuri(Dodo) is to run away by running away and curling up. Bluesun 18:53, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
That's a pretty insignificant distinction... --P o L i 00:58, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
