Is anyone sure just how to get Dageki in Pokemon White? I've done my fair share of searching in both Victory Road and outside the forest. I've found Nageki, and a billion Tabunne, but I'm starting to doubt his presence in White.--Shinbora 21:47, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

They are rare in White just as Nageki are rare in Black. I have Black Version and my Pokédex says that Nageki can be found in the same areas as Dageki. I'm sure it's just the same for Dageki in White. --ケンジガール 21:50, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Blue Oni?

Should it not be mentioned in the article that Dageki resembles the 'Blue Oni', an archetype in Japanese entertainment? And Nageki, his counterpart, likewise resembles the 'Red Oni' archetype?

Half-brow

Dageki missing one "eyebrow" is most likely a reference to Mas Oyama. Can I add it on? --Pizzaman 23:51, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Rock 'Em Sock 'Em

I think it's pretty clear that Rawk and Sawk are based on Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. Should we add this? Phoenix1304 03:29, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

When was Nageki's name confirmed to be "Rawk"? To my knowledge, the leaked name is "Throh". --ケンジガール 06:29, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Not the name, the colors Ataro 06:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I know about that. It just seemed like he was referring to Nageki as Rawk. --ケンジガール 06:38, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

It wasn't confirmed, but it's the rumor that I heard. It would make sense - Rawk and Sawk, Rock'Em Sock'Em. Phoenix1304 23:59, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

English Name Confirmed?

As much as I realize that Black and White's release is a week a way, I don't remember Sawk's (along with Samurott's) English name ever being confirmed. Was it and did I miss it? --TrickyB 02:04, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Sawk was confirmed by the Official Nintendo Magazine's site. Samurott was confirmed by an image of the theme decks from the upcoming B/W set. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 02:09, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Sawk is based on a Ao-Oni(青鬼 blue Ogre).

The source is Nintendo Dream vol.205. Sawamular101 02:00, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Signature Move?

A conversation on GameFAQs prompted this. According to the Signature Move page, a Signature move are moves that can only be learned by a single Pokémon or its evolutionary relatives by level-up. Sawk is the only Pokémon to learn Rock Smash through Level Up. Yet his page, the Signature Move page, etc., do not list Rock Smash as a Signature Move of his. The argument in question brought up Ally Switch, which is classified as a Signature Move of the Abra line, despite being the same situation. (Learned through Level Up by 1 family, but is also a TM for others) So, simple question, why isn't Rock Smash listed as a signature move for Sawk, or why are things like Ally Switch listed as Signature Moves for those pokémon? Myzou 21:40, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

If the move is available by TM or HM, it is not a signature move. Ally Switch should be removed from Abra if that is the case. --ケンジガール 22:44, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Actually, based on our current definition on signature move, those would be signature moves. --SnorlaxMonster 13:53, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
If it states anything like that, it should be change. It doesn't make sense that a Pokémon's signature move would exist many generations before it did and the fact that a ton of other Pokémon can learn it too. I was under the impression that signature move meant that only a handful of Pokémon can learn it. --ケンジガール 03:57, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Version Exclusivity?

All the Route pages and Victory Road and Pinwheel Forest list Sawk as Black exclusive. If there is a way to get Sawk on White, it should be noted separately from Black, or the Game Locations section should list it as Black Exclusive if there is no way. AsbestosBill 19:44, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Throh and Sawk = Mario and Luigi?

Mario is red and fatter/shorter, and Luigi is green (blue in Japanese) and taller/thinner. Throh is red and slightly fatter and shorter, and Sawk is blue and slightly taller/thinner. I'm I the only one who sees a connection here?Special Stage Route (pit stop) 08:00, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes. You are the only one. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 08:19, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
And Luigi is green in all countries. Ataro (talk) 09:05, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
