SonicBoom

I'm just wondering, is there a reason why Soundproof does not negate Sonicboom? Drake Clawfang 01:58, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

SonicBoom is a shock wave. Whether it's actually caused by sound or not, deafness doesn't protect you from a wave of pure force.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 03:01, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Poké Flute

Playing my LeafGreen version, I remember trying to wake up my Electrode several times using the Poke Flute, only for said item to play its "catchy tune" with no effect. The Electrode I had was one with Soundproof. Could someone test the Poke Flute on a sleeping Pokemon with the Soundproof ability for me? Prince Marx 16:13, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

I tried to wake up my Mr.Mime with the Poke Flute, and since he was Soundproof it didn't wake up. So that ability also has this negative side effect.
Tested the colored Flutes and they work in HGSS on Soundproof Pokémon. If someone else can help me with the testing of this in other games it would be nice (I'll do it eventually). --SnorlaxMonster 12:52, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Colored flutes work in Emerald and FRLG, but the Poké Flute does not. I think this shows that it stops the Poké Flute, but not the colored ones. --SnorlaxMonster 05:06, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Synchro Noise

Is Synchro Noise affected by Soundproof? Louisng114 00:46, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

That's a good question. I had been meaning to ask the same thing about Canon --AndyPKMN 00:52, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Unaffected sound moves?

Isn't the definition of a "sound move" a move negated by Soundproof? It's like having a list of punching moves not affected by Iron Fist...--MisterE13 22:14, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

How about "Unaffected sound-like moves"? --SnorlaxMonster 09:07, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

New moves

We have some new sound based moves introduced in Gen V: Canon, Bark Out, Echo Voice, Ancient Song and maybe some other. Are this moves affected by Soundproof? --ЫъГЬ 12:25, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
