Vital Throw in Generation I?

The same way animé Mewtwo used Shadow Ball (albeit possibly first named that way in Super Smash Bros. Melee) during the first movie, I remember seeing the P1GP Machop using a "something Throw" move against Ash's Primeape during the first season. Wasn't it a Vital Throw? --Johans 18:45, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Actually, it was Mahop's special move which Ash looked on his Pokédex and found out it was Seismic Toss. When it grabs hold of Primape's feet it swings it around and tosses it.Tesh 12:07, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Normal Sprite Becomes Shiny?

I was looking at Machop's sprites, and it seems the bronze/copper colored normal Machop from Generation II becomes the shiny sprite color from Generation III and on. So should that go in Trivia?--KukiTalk 15:14, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Nope. GBC had color limitations, so a lot of Pokémon were discolored in GenII. Thus, most if not all GenII color trivia is unotable. Tina 15:19, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Except for the fact that its shiny color from Generation II is its normal color in future generations (or at least, as close as it got, possibly due to the aforementioned color limitations). There are in fact a few things semi-notable about Machop's color in the sprites. First, Machop's color in Yellow, which is supposed to follow closer to the anime/Sugimori art, changes Machop's color from grey to a brown, despite that in The Punchy Pokémon Machop is clearly its normal blue-grey. Then, as I said previously, its actual color is closer to its shiny color than its normal color in Generation II. If anyone is actually interested in adding this, you can do so, since I'm leaving it as it is. ~ Zeofar 22:06, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Japanese Name?

The article here has it Romanized as Wanriky, but Serebii.net has it as Wanrikie. Is there a significant difference? I wouldn't think it mattered, but I felt it was worth bringing up in case it did matter. --Mike | Contrib 03:50, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

SmellingSalt is Status?

According to the moves via Breeding, SmellingSalt is a Status move rather than a Physical move, can someone change this?TurtleLover1999 (talk) 21:55, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

It's done now, but you could have changed it yourself.--Den Zen 22:12, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
