i was just wondering if we could get a percentage? Dakclaw 18:12, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm not certain, but from Stark Mountain (not the cave), About one in three encounters was Skarmory. Note that Skarmory is rare/uncommon(?) to begin with, I say it forces maybe 30% to 50% chance. Gywall(Talk) 18:23, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
when i have Zone out front, it seems way more than that. in Mt. Coronet, Bronzong has a very rare chance of showing up, but, i got one what seemed like 9/10 times. -- MAGNEDETH 18:51, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
I see Bronzong frequently in Mt. Coronet.. Gywall(Talk) 21:54, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Ability type

Are you sure this is a Steel-type ability and not an Electric-type? --Vemoth 01:19, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Abilities don't technically have "types", but I assume we're using Steel colors because more Steel-types have the ability than Electric-types. --AndyPKMN 02:13, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
I chose most of the ability colors; Steel was selected here because Magnet Pull attracts Steel types. That's why some have attack color, for example: the ability affects the attack stat. —darklordtrom 06:51, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
I think Electric makes more sense because all of the Pokémon with it have Electric-type moves associated with them (plus to be nerdy magnetism and electricity can be sort like chicken or the egg). --Vemoth 20:13, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

"By 150%"?

"the likelihood of encountering wild Steel-type Pokémon is increased by 150%."

Does this actually mean that the likelihood is 2.5x as much as it was before, or do you really mean 1.5x and it should say "increase by 50%"? Ztobor 20:59, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
