Forest In G/S/C
In Generation II, does the forest exist? I thought that only tree stumps could be found here
- Tag please - I'll look into it. *boots up Gameboy* I'm pretty sure it's treestumps and patches of grass there in GSC. -Fragment 14:13, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
Sad BOO HOO
Pidgeotto in Yellow
1%?! REALLY? Someone ought to look that up, see if it's true. If it is, though, that would explain a lot. Like why I only found three Pidgeotto in the scope of two hours! - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talk • contribs) 11:37, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
- That's what I've seen on multiple fansites and strategy guides for years and years. I just emulated Yellow recently, and with the speed up button I was able to play what the game figured was 4 hours in the spance of an hour (spent going back and forth between Viridian Forest and the Pokémon Center at Viridian City to heal PP). Over those four game hours, I found only one Pidgeotto (which I caught). It really is an intensely low percentage. Think about it - Pidgeotto aren't supposed to evolve until level 18. So finding a level 9 one is practically unbelievable. So yeah, it's 1%, I'm almost certain of it, based on both my gameplay (I was actually worried I would get so strong with all my Pokémon that I would KO it before I could catch it), and based on memories from sites and guide books. Of course, only hacking the game could get the 100% confirmation of that 1% chance validity. Satosuke 02:15, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Noctowl in HGSS
I was in Viridian Forest and found an underleveled Noctowl, it was level 7, should this be in the trivia section? (it's also in the Pokémon section in the article) Alexjuuhh 12:37, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
- As long as it's listed in the wild Pokémon list it shold be fine. Underleveled Pokémon are actually quite common, so there isn't really a need to put it in the trivia section. Werdnae (talk) 20:24, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
- I believe you can find it there—in headbutt trees. Unfortunately, we don't have Pokémon and their encounter rates for headbutt trees on location pages (yet), so it'll be hard to add to the page. --AndyPKMN 21:53, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
Pikachu availability from Gen I to Gen III
I noticed that in Pikachu's page it says that it's "uncommon" in Red/Blue and "rare" in LeafGreen/FireRed, however here on the location page, both generations claim "5%" - isn't that inconsistent?
I don't know where the people get these numbers but, from personal experience, after walking around for about half an hour, I can find a Pikachu or two in Red or Blue, but after one hour, I couldn't find a single Pikachu in LeafGreen (haven't tried FireRed yet). This leads me to believe that the Pikachu page is right, and the Viridian Forest (this one) is wrong... Pikachu's are either non-existant or should be about 1% (definitely not 5%) in the 3rd generation games. Raven-14 13:41, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
I think we should go by the actual page for Pikachu, seeing as that should be more reliable. If you would care to update it, please do. If anyone disagrees, please post a reply. Thanks!
The appearance rates for the Headbutt section of the Generation IV Pokémon list adds up to 110% for both HeartGold and SoulSilver. Is this accurate? Intentional? Phantom♫Junkie 05:00, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
I just saw it, but it does look a bit like a shadow of a celebi from the side Emeraldben 12:45, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
Is it just me or the Silph Co. theme song makes a brief reference to the Viridian Forest theme song? Does anyone knows anything about that? Can't remember where, but i read that one of the first things finished on the Generation I games was the music. Could one of the BGMs be originally intended for something else?

Viridian Forest... isn't a forest?
I was playing through yellow a long time ago and wondered why the boarders were black. Usually in the overworld the terrain objects like trees are just repeated infinitely, but not for Viridian Forest. The only other place where the boarders are all black is inside of rooms. So that brought me to this question: What if Viridian Forest is coded into the game as a room? This theory would be supported by the fact that you can not fly to or from it, just as if inside. I don't know, maybe it was done on purpose to suggest there are trees blocking the sunlight out overhead... but I just thought I'd point it out. Please let me know if you have any thoughts about this.
