In Pokémon White, the person who gives TM 94 is a woman. Is Black different from that? Until someone verify this, I'm modifying the text in favor to what I've seen. Blow 01:23, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

No matter how many times I reloaded to fight in the shaky patches in inner area, I couldn't find a Tabunne with lvl below 14 or Doredia with lvl 16. I couldn't find a Tabunne of lvl 16 too. Blow 22:28, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Anime pics

Which format is better? Mine, which has one on the left and one on the right, o the current, which has both on the right, creating empty white space?--Derenol232 01:28, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I prefer the way it is now: it creates a tiny bit of white space between the image and the nav template. The other way crushes the first paragraph and leaves one sentence of that paragraph not crushed and alone. --SnorlaxMonster 01:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Water tiles

Does anyone know the pokemon which apear in the pond in the inner area, while surfing / fishing? There are dark patches in the water, too. Thanks. Migrant 21:47, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Time-based Encounter Rates

I've played through the games a few times and I've noticed that Sewaddle don't appear at night, while Venipede don't appear during the day. Can anyone else confirm this? ^_^ Delspencerdeltorro 22:28, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

You're wrong. They both appear at all times. Blazios 22:45, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
True... both of them can be caught at any time Dragonxss2 08:13, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Level 70 Seaking while fishing

Today I caught a level 70 seaking while fishing in a fishing spot/bubbling water.. I was surprised because in the article it says that the Seakings found are from level 39-64 ... but I clearly caught a level 70 seaking... here's a video link .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GBJyuNHQH4 .. and don't turn off the annotations.. so I have changed the levels from 39-64 to 39-70 ..

Outer area Dark grass encounter rates

I realize they would be in multiples of 5, but that's what I got from 100 encounters. Should I round it to 30-25-35-10/10, or leave it for now? Also, does anyone want to do more encounters to make them more right? EnosShayremTalk 01:58, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

This kind of data is generally better to rip straight from the game, but based on the results of your experiment and the pre-existing data for normal grass, I think it is safe to assume that they are the same, so I rounded them to what the normal grass encounter rates were. --SnorlaxMonster 05:01, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

I just need to say this...

Today I've found a Blue-striped Basculin in Pokémon Black here. It was from level 18. Its only move I know was Water Gun. Teddi'Ampha 13:32, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Is there a reason for posting this, or a question? I don't see anything out of the ordinary with your find. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 13:38, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, normally, Blue-striped ones only appear in Pokémon White, while I found one in Pokémon Black. I'm tying to say that the information on the article is incorrect, with this. Teddi'Ampha 14:56, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Nope, it's still correct. You must have found the Basculin on a ripple. Check the article again. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 14:58, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
No, that's what I'm saying, it was NOT in a ripple. Teddi'Ampha 15:03, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I've done this a few times. A ripple will appear as you're surfing along, and you will enter it and while it seems like a normal encounter, it is actually a ripple encounter (music is a giveaway). --SnorlaxMonster 12:57, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Levels Outside Pinwheel Forest

I noticed a discrepancy between Serebii.net (http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/unova/pinwheelforest.shtml) and this page regarding the levels in which Pokemon appear mainly in the Double (Dark) Grass. Which is correct? Can someone list a source where I can verify it myself?

Also I don't think you can find a Tympole Level 17 in the regular grass as I have used at LEAST 40 Max Repels, 20 Super Repels, and 20 Repels with a level 17 Pokemon at the head of my Party. I know for a fact this method works because I have put a level 55 Pokemon at the head of my party, used Max Repel, and I was still able to find the Level 55 Mass Outbreak/Swarming(not sure what it is called in this game)Pokemon. Using that logic, there is no reason why that same method would not not work with a Level 17 Pokemon whose ability is Chlorophyll which I don't believe has anything to do with the appearance of Pokemon in the wild. I just find it hard to believe that it would be so hard to encounter a Pokemon. - unsigned comment from PiperKevin (talkcontribs)

I just tried, and can't even find any level 16 Pokémon here. Veekun is almost always right (I've never seen him wrong, while both BP and Serebii tend to make mistakes), but he has no Gen V location data. --SnorlaxMonster 11:09, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
