Should it be mentioned that Buizel's eye turns blue? Rucario64 00:05, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure everyone dismissed that as a one-off coloring error.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 02:12, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it really shouldn't be mentioned. But still, wouldn't someone think that by now, with all these episodes in where it happened, the animators ought to look into what's causing it?--DRAGONBEASTX 01:30, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

My god, its like an edit war! My god, it is an edit war! Okay, if one more person changes Buizel's eye effect, I'm calling an admin to protect the page!--DRAGONBEASTX 02:09, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Listen, we don't know if its an animation error or nor, nor does it matter, the fact of the matter is that it happens. Until it changes and we know it was an error, we should put it in because it does happen. The Dark Fiddler - ¿Nos hablamos? 02:11, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

My god, this is confusing...... I'm starting to think something else...... you're right Dark Fiddler, until we see it happen without blue eyes, we leave it on there.--DRAGONBEASTX 02:17, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Adventures

Id rather not start an edit war, but my opinion on "Dr. O"'s Spearow is that Mirror Move in adventures seems to simply reflect the opponent's move back at them, kind of like how Counter works in the anime. Based on that, personally I'd say that Spearow didn't actually use Water Gun (or Hydro Pump or Whirlwind), but just reflected it back. What are other people's opinions on the matter? Werdnae (talk) 01:56, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Meh. I just figured that since we do the same thing for Metronome and Assist that we do it for Mirror Move. Whirlwind? Lol, where'd you get that? ^^; Littlmiget123 02:01, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Volume 4. Yellow's Doduo vs. Oak's Spearow. The reason I'm asking though is that with Metronome at least, Clefable is shown using the other move (Hyper Beam, etc.) separately from Metronome, while Spearow doesn't appear to be. Werdnae (talk) 01:05, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Missingno.

Should we add Missingno. to the list of pokémon that can learn it? EnosShayrem 20:15, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

No. The lists on these pages should only ever include real Pokémon. Glitch Pokémon should not be added. Werdnae (talk) 04:06, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Generational Soundeffecs

The sound effect for Water Gun in Gen V uses the Gen I sound effect for Hydro Pump. Trivia-worthy? Me, Hurray! 22:38, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Uh, not really. No one (or almost no one) would notice it right away. It's like we said the first 151 Pokémon use the same sound effects four generations later, it's not needed at all. Masatoshitalk 23:07, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Well I and all my friends noticed it right away. Also, Pokémon have kept their cries since their generational debut, granted, but all moves have had new sound effects for each generation. Its pretty odd that moves like Water Gun and Quick Guard are now using soundeffects from as far back as GenI. Also, I'd hardly say any trivia is "needed." That's why its called "trivia." Its trivial information that is, nonetheless, slightly interesting. Me, Hurray! 13:45, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
I listened to both of the sounds myself one right after the other, and the two sound nothing alike. Water Gun could possibly be a Generation I sound, but it is definitely not Hydro Pump. Even if it were, I don't think it would be notable. It's resourceful to reuse sound effects, and it's not like it's 100% the same sound. The Gen V Water Gun uses a bunch of noises at the same time. Sorry. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 13:57, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Maybe its Surf or the original Water Gun soundeffect but its still pretty unusual for them to use a very dated-sounded Gen1 soundeffect if they want to reuse a soundeffect. It seems like a purposeful choice. Me, Hurray! 01:33, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
