Immune to poison

In the move's effects section, it mentions the various ways that Pokémon will not be affected by this move's poison. However, since these are inherent to poison, and not specifically part of this move, should this be removed? --RiverAura 17:49, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Variations of Flamethrower.

This move is a variation of Flamethrower, Ice Beam and Thunderbolt. It has the same base power, accuracy, 10% of inflicting a status ailment and the same PP as Ice beam. Does anyone agree? Nickvang (talk) 11:06, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Nope. Your Blizzard and Hyper Voice argument is invalid, they affect only adjacent foes, while Sludge Wave affects adjacent everything, doesn't matter if it's ally or foe. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 11:08, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Then, I guess you're right, I didn't understand that's the reason. But why is Sludge Bomb no variation of Hyper Voice and Dragon Pulse? Or should I open a Talk on Sludge Bomb's page itself... ...yeah, I'd better do that. Nickvang (talk) 11:18, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Wait a second! Discharge is a variation of Waterfall and Dark Pulse. So Sludge Wave should be a variation of Flamethrower. Nickvang (talk) 11:25, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
So can I list Sludge Wave as a variation of Flamethrower, or should I split Waterfall and Discharge and Lava Plume? Nickvang (talk) 09:29, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
