You know

Putting the evobox's parameters commented out. Good thinking. TTEchidna 10:13, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Origin

In the Sugimori art on Serebii, Miruhoggu's stripe form what looks almost like the orange safety vests that seem to "glow" in darkness, possibly hinting at its ability illuminate. - unsigned comment from Snozzardi (talkcontribs)

I agree on that. Its body kinda resembles a roadcone, and the safety vest goes well with it being the Precaution Pokémon.--Kaoz 19:53, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Physiology

I'm pretty sure that "white tuft" is a hand. --Element03 00:21, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, the physiology section was written back when all we had was gameplay images, so it was kind of impossible to tell what it was.--PhantomJunkie 01:04, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Possible origin?

I don't know if this is trivia worthy, but Miruhoggu's design, along with its pose (particularly the folded arms) seems to give it the overall appearance of a gym instructor, with the yellow markings resembling a vest. T a r o m o n 14:37, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

I doubt it's a gym teacher. Seems more with security. Like Minezumi is the lookout Pokémon and how this one is the Precaution Pokémon. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 14:44, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
I believe it's a foreman, much like one in constructions. The vest, as noted in a previous paragraph, is more akin to a safety vest than to a gym suit.--Kaoz 15:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Miruhog.--immewnitythemew 00:18, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Shouldn't the title be at Miruhog (Pokémon), rather than just Miruhog, as the article says it should be moved to right now? It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 21:27, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
It's okay. I understood what Matt meant. I guess I'll do Mogothingy too. —darklordtrom 21:35, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

On watch

Watchog's eyes does not close when afflicted with Sleep, does this happen to other Pokemon as well? - unsigned comment from Togelover (talkcontribs)

I've removed this from the trivia since it's not true, they do close. Their eyes are just so small that you need to look closely. XVuvuzela2010X 17:22, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

EVs

When I was EV training Attack on Route 1 (in the dark grass past the water), I noticed that Watchdog seems to only give 1 Attack EV. Has anyone else noticed this? --Jdthebud 09:27, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

It used to say 1 Attack EV on this page. In addition, every other fansite lists it as 1 Attack EV. If you are finding that it gives only 1 Attack EV, it is most likely correct. --SnorlaxMonster 12:13, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
This is the only instance I can think of in which an evolution gives the same number of EVs as the basic form (besides baby Pokemon that were introduced later maybe) - possible trivia? --Jdthebud 23:38, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Same here. I think it's something sufficiently unique and should be added to trivia; I just don't want to break any rules by doing so. (since adding trivia is explicitly outlawed right now) Gridelin Glass 02:49, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Just wait untill trivia is open again - unsigned comment from Cutemudkip (talkcontribs)

Only evolved / fully evolved pokemon with 255 catch rate

It seems watchog is the only evolved (and fully evolved, obviously) pokemon with the maximum catch rate. If it is correct I think it should be added in Trivia.

Superpika 11:36, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

There's Audino and Maractus if you want to count stand alone Pokémon as fully evolved. But other than that, I'd say it's notable.--ForceFire 11:46, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

EV yield

It seems to have changed. Veekun lists 2, ポケモンWiki lists 2 in the article, but 1 on the list. Eridanus (talk) 17:38, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I experimented in-game (KOed 3 Watchhog with a 0EV Pokémon with Pokérus, then used two Kelpsy Berries), and it gives 2 Attack EVs in Gen VI. --SnorlaxMonster 11:44, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Has this been verified to have changed in Black 2 and White 2? I would have expected this to have changed between generations. --SnorlaxMonster 14:36, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes. I've used an untouched (that is, no EVs) Kyurem in White 2; it has received 2 EVs for a Watchog. Knocking out a Watchog in Black and White gives 1 EV instead. Eridanus (talk) 14:41, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
