Talk:The Riches (Trainer class)

Move to The Riches

It's a family that challenges you to a consecutive battle (albeit with slight variations in such execution) so it should be formatted similarly to Winstrate. |>|-|1|23 57R1K3 02:34, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Primary difference is that the Winstrate family appears in canon other than the games... the Riches are, really, just a trainer class until they appear in the anime. --P o L i 03:58, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Repeatability

I have seen it stated online (in money making advice) that if you battle against them until Miles appears, and then subsequently each day battle the first 5 and win, and then lose against Miles, you can come back the following day and try again, netting a repeatable $62,000 (or with an amulet coin, $124,000). If true, this is the highest repeatable income in the game, even more than fighting the elite 4 (not to mention easier). If someone can confirm this, it should be added to the article, as well as what conditions must be met to continue fighting them (if you wait 5 days before coming back, for example, instead of coming back the next day, are they all still there, etc). Especially as this source of repeatable income is "missable" (if you don't perform the correct action, it disappears forever), I think people would appreciate being made aware of it. If it's true, of course. Sir Mister (talk) 17:36, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Umm...

It says that Clairdonna has a Teddiursa, like Susan, but this isn't true. Actually, it shows the right sprite, but the wrong name. I don't know the actual name so can someone fix it? Nutter Butter (talk) 04:30, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

It also shows Zillion as a Socialite :| Nutter Butter (talk) 04:33, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Its his dad? isnt it?

The item maniac... its Dracos dad... he says as much after battling him and he invites you in... he looks to the room and says that his dad is obsessed with items... Ralok (talk) 20:53, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Not just items, items at the ruins, he even says. It really is silly that anyone would think the Black Belt/Item Maniac might not be his dad. I'll change it in a sec. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:13, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Abilities?

We should double check them. I am fairly sure the Krookodile has Moxie, not Intimidate (it didn't Intimidate my Krookodile, which does have Intimidate, and then later it KOd my Chandelure, raising its Attack). Eridanus (talk) 17:59, 23 August 2014 (UTC) PS. And it seems Bisharp doesn't have Defiant; Intimidate did not trigger anything. Who assumed the Pokémon have their first Abilities? Even common Trainers seem to be able to have either of the regular Abilities in Generation V (in Black 2, one of the Policeman's Growlithe has different Ability that the Growlithe of a Clerk in Castelia; since only one lowered Attack with Intimidate). Eridanus (talk) 19:14, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't have convenient access to Trace, but it looks like you're right. From what I could easily check, Shuckle wasn't Sturdy, Krookodile didn't Intimidate, Politoed didn't have Water Absorb, Heatmor had Flash Fire, and Bisharp didn't have Defiant. (Haxorus apparently did have Rivalry, since it didn't say it was breaking the mold.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:58, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Took care of those that you two listed. Looks like we will need to investigate the others with two possible Abilities. Berrenta (talk) 00:45, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
