I don't know about Gen IV, but in Gen II there's smashable rocks on the shore here, aren't there Pokemon that pop out of them? Drake Clawfang 08:13, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Is it accessible before the Elite Four? merlinnerd


I was just trying to catch a to catch a tentacool with a good rod, I may have just been unlucky but I never saw one. But I did see a Staru while fishing. (soulsilver) I do not know exact % rate but the vales for gen IV should be changed.

American Idol Reference?! WTF?

I can't believe nobody noticed this. Swimmer Simon Swimmer Paula Swimmer Randall. Coincidence much? - unsigned comment from Gen1king (talkcontribs)

hey, that's pretty...random. Trivia worthy I guess? Jello 23:48, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
That is notable. Go ahead.--Midnight Blue 23:49, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Done. --GEN1KING 04:37, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
I thought Bulbapedia was working against Trivia for Trivia's sake...--Purimpopoie 04:57, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, I thought if it is really notable.--Midnight Blue 05:00, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
I don't see how a TV Show that has nothing to do with Pokemon is notable. And since GSC predates American Idol, this is solidly a coincidence, and was in now way intentional, unlike the Movie Cameo Trainers in Sinnoh.--Purimpopoie 05:04, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
As I said before, this is a coincedence, but I think it's trivia worthy. Plus, we're still debating this, who erased it? --GEN1KING 07:00, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
No. GSC predates AI.--ForceFire 09:51, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

What I JUST SAID is that I know its a coincedence, but a notable one at that. If anyone had thought to READ THE TRIVIA, you would know that I wrote that it was merely a coincidence, as GSC predates the show. I did my research, y'know. --GEN1KING 22:02, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

So let me get this straight: pointless "trivia" like how Croagunk is Brock's second Poison-type that starts with "Cro-" is okay, but trivia that points out a freakish coincidence is not? And "GSC predates AI" is a horrible justification for deleting the trivia. It's interesting BECAUSE NOA, by chance, had a group of three trainers in the same area named Randall, Paula and Simon years BEFORE a show started in which the judges had the same names. (Not to mention the Kara on Route 41 in the same body of water!) --Frost 20:02, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Your signature is supposed to reflect your actual username. Please change it accordingly, thanks. 梅子 20:04, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Also, the Croagunk trivia is purely within Pokémon canon. AI is a horrible "reality" tv program that has nothing to do with Pokémon other than this bizarre coincidence. - unsigned comment from Galladeon (talkcontribs)

A Call from Ethan

Just received a call from Ethan telling me to bring a Poliwag to Route 40. "Cara? Good evening! You should take a POLIWAG over to Route 40 and see what happens! You'll see something interesting. That's for sure!" This text is direct, since my player's name is Cara. Unfortunately, i can't screen this since it's the legit game and not a ROM. Any idea what this could mean? KurosakisTwin 00:46, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

I assume it has something to do with the text that pops up when you talk to your walking Poliwag. Some Pokémon have special responses in some areas, most notably Ampharos at the top of Glitter Lighthouse. —darklordtrom 06:03, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Tentacruel

Is it worth commenting on the possibility to find some severely underleveled Tentacruel here (can be caught as low as Level 15 even though they're supposed to evolve at Level 30), or not (since this happens many other places, too)? Dimenticare (talk) 22:27, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
