Faded scent

In Pearl, I only seem to get a faded scent. Is there some requirement for it to make a Pokémon appear? Gywall(Talk) 15:49, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

U gotta do it in grass!--KukiTalk 15:50, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm not that stupid, but when I do.. It always has said it faded. Gywall(Talk) 16:14, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I received the "faded scent" message once when I tried to use Sweet Scent on Route 228 - the one with a Sandstorm. Perhaps it fades whenever the weather is anything but clear? --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 04:36, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
If that's the case, at least address it in the actual article or talk to an admin about it... ht14 04:45, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
It is the case. TTEchidna 05:32, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Repel and Sweet Scent

When I was playing my Crystal, I tried to find roaming pokemon (Raikou) by putting a pokémon (a level 36 Victreebel) in front that was a lower level than Raikou (according to your Pokédex, level 40), but still higher than the wild pokémon in that area. I used a repel so that the wild pokémon would not appear, then used sweet scent, but a random wild pokémon would still appear. Does a repel not affect sweet scent, or does Crystal require a pokémon to appear, even if it violates the repel (since a pokémon of high enough level is not in the area)? bob 04:53, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Sweet Scent's effect triggers as normal even if a Repel is in play. In short, Sweet Scent overrides Repel. Your best bet to chase roaming legendaries is to bring tons of Repel and keep moving. --Shiningpikablu252 15:51, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Is the disambiguation page necessary?

At the moment, searching for "Sweet Scent" takes you to a disambiguation page, asking if you'd like to visit this article about the move, or a short article about an e-Reader application. Given that most people are likely to be searching for the move, would it be more sensible to make the Sweet Scent page a redirect to this article, but include a note here along the lines of "This article is about the move introduced in Generation II. For the e-Reader application, see Sweet Scent (e-Reader)."? –Ben10do (talk) 18:16, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

I agree it should redirect to the move. Chickasaurus (talk) 20:36, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
