Ability

Meguroko's ability is actually called Earthquake Spiral. Every time Meguroko defeats a foe it gets more and more powerful. - unsigned comment from gendrgar000 (talkcontribs)

I think Overconfident is just a different translation or Earthquake Spiral. If you get more confident, don't you feel like you could do better? Also, please remember to sign your comments with ~~~~. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 15:26, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

earthquake spiral doesn't even make any sense.... (Ataro 15:30, 27 June 2010 (UTC)) yeah "Earthquake Spiral' sounds like an attack. how can people actually say that it's not overconfidence?Vkickass 00:01, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Physiology for the admins to implement

Meguroko is a primarily tan-colored, quadruped crocodilian Pokémon, having a long snout as typical of crocodilians, and a thick black stripe on the bridge. Meguroko’s eyes are round and sepia-colored, with a circular pattern of black around them stretching between each eye, giving the impression of an archetypical robber’s mask or a pair of glasses, with the ridges surrounding the eyes being large and protruding. Two thick black stripes are present down Meguroko’s back, stretching to its pink-colored underside and encompassing its tan-colored limbs, which sport three claws each that are also black; additionally, its tapered tail is tipped with the color.

Origin

I'd like to point out this species as a partial design influence, particularly the "eyeglasses". Also, the word for spectacles (megane) is a more likely name origin than "eye".--Kaoz 01:27, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Taking into account the glasses design and the word "megane" the name is most likely a pun off of "meganekko" or glasses girls. 目黒子 (meguroko: Black-eyed child) with 目 (me) meaning eyes, 黒 (kuro) meaning black, and 子 (ko) meaning child.--Psychogurl 00:12, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

It's appearance is most likely based on a cartoonish crocodile.Bennell 13:50, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

When it comes to crocodilian species, Sandile could be likely a Nile Crocodile because of it's stripes and it use to be found in the Nile River in Egypt.Bennell 13:58, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Unique typing?

Maybe it'd be relevant in the trivia to mention that as of now (barring any evolution with a similar typing, of course), Meguroko would be the only dark/ground poke'mon?--The Great Ratsby 02:42, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

The only known Dark/Ground Pokémon. But keep in mind that Black and White might introduce other Dark/Ground Pokémon. I think we should probably leave it out since if it turns out there are more we'd have wasted time. Absolution 09:27, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I'd like to note that Meguroko was the first Pokémon with a unique typing revealed in G5. If it is unique, that is. --Element03 00:55, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

That's incorrect, though. Reshiram and Zekrom have unique type combinations too, and I believe they were revealed earlier. --ZestyCactus 01:24, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh right, I forgot about them. My mistake. --Element03 05:58, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, Reshiram and Zekrom themselves were revealed earlier, but their typing was not, so Meguroko was the first Gen V Pokémon known to have a unique typing (assuming that all these guys have unique typings that it). Jas61292 03:56, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
I think "first revealed Generation V Pokémon with a unique typing" is a bit too specific. --SnorlaxMonster 08:57, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Sprite

Can we have it's sprite added to the page? --SnorlaxMonster 03:42, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Evolution

Evolves to Warubiru, a humanoid crocodile.

It also further evolves to Warubiaru, appareance unknown as of yet, though.Gochiruzeru 19:05, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

yes, we know it will be added when it's added..Ataro 19:13, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Anime.

The article says that Meguroko is "set to appear" but it appears already and the episode already aired. BW003. "AngelGuardian" 07:17, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

BTW, Shouldn't all the rest gen V Pokés be unprotected now? Seriously, June 2011 is somewhat an exaggerated date...--でんのう Zえんし 07:23, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah.. i can't wait to edit a lot of those articles.. "AngelGuardian" 09:52, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Make a list of them on the forums and they will be unprotected. --SnorlaxMonster 11:38, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

yeah that was posted on it's own talk page...Ataro 00:26, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Weird, same minute it was posted. Oh, and thanks for telling me. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 00:28, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
so..anyone going to do this? Ataro 23:56, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Trivia

So, I've been thinking about this for a while and considering whether or not it was actual trivia, so I figure that I should just ask. The moves naturally learned match the striping on Sandile. Trivia? Yes I know it's not consistent and it's not really that important. Rucario64 20:50, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

They moves just alternate between Ground and Dark for a short while. If it did so for its entire learnset, it would be notable, but really the only reason you see this is because of the way Bulbapedia sets out its templates. --SnorlaxMonster 09:10, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Not sure if this is particularly notable, but Sandile and Krokorok have the same weight as Bellsprout and Weepinbell. Sphericalice (talk) 18:40, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
