Special movesets

So far, I've caught a bunch of pikachu here that know thundershock, growl and tail whip, at lvls 9 and 10. They were also holding berries. But, when I took one of these pikachu into the forest, I caught one at lvl 12 that knows volt tackle, fake out, thundershock and growl. I don't think that the fact that I brought my pikachu in had any effect on this, though. I also found a light ball in the dowsing game. Still no flying one, but if I find one I'll post about it. If someone can add this information into the article eventually, feel free.--Charonchan 22:16, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

I JUST CAUGHT A SURFIN' PIKACHU. lvl.13: surf, thunderbolt, thunder wave, quick attack

These also had different movesets: lv 13 shock wave, thunder wave, flail, helping hand lvl.10:thundershock, growl, tail whip, thunder wave --Charonchan 23:15, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

I got a FLYING PIKACHU. Too excited to confirm but it's Lv 15 and holding a berry. Pic: IMAGE_137.jpg

Sorry, really bad camera from my phone, but the words can be vaguely recognised. As well as the type of attack, power and accuracy. - unsigned comment from Lyk13 (talk

Edit: Got the moveset and berry:

Flying Pikachu

Could it be a refereng to the promo card?--Mtn otter I am the Void 19:09, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

It could also refer to Chuchu. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 00:41, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Genders

Why does the page seem to insinuate that the Surfing Pikachus are only female? I mean, it's not as if every Pokemon you catch in the Pokewalker has a set gender every time.... right? Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 11:19, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

They indeed do seem to be set, I've been checking all findings that I've made with another Japanese Wiki, and they have gotten the same exact results. I was kind of hoping that if anyone found anything different they could post here and say they have conflicting results, but so far it seems pretty much confirmed that they are in fact set for every course (Yaminokame 11:25, 15 October 2009 (UTC))

Wifi

By wifi event, would the Notch-Eared-Pichu trade work? Or the arceus event? Or would you have to download a wifi event direct? SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 16:23, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

What exactly do you mean? I'm not really following :( Are you asking how to download a course to the Pokewalker? (Yaminokame 16:32, 28 February 2010 (UTC))
In the article it says it is activated by a wifi EVENT. EVENT could be downloading or actually doing (trading Arceus/Pichu) SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 16:39, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
It's downloaded to the games in the form of an "item," if you will, called (in Japanese at least) "Yellow Forest Course Map." Pick that "course map" up from the guy at the Pokemart and it will unlock 'Yellow Forest' in your Pokewalker available courses list. Courses: "Event," "Shopping," and "Champ Road" are all the same method (though two of them were never over wi-fi, it's the same concept) (Yaminokame 16:46, 28 February 2010 (UTC))

Trivia

Attempting to breed a Flying Pikachu and a Surfing Pikachu with one another will result in the moves being forgotten by both of them.

Is this just because they are learning Quick Attack at level 18, and the moves are being replaced as normally happens in the daycare? Or if you manage to get an egg before they reach level 18 will they only have three moves, as the trivia currently implies. Werdnae (talk) 00:23, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I think the person was trying to imply that putting either one inside of the daycare that their HM moves are not guaranteed to stay with them and could possibly be removed and replaced by another move, which is 'meh' trivia :/ (Yaminokame 00:40, 18 April 2010 (UTC))
Shouldn't it say that they may forget the moves if they are left in the Daycare too long? Because they can breed if they don't level up too high or if they are above the highest level where they can learn a move by leveling up. Terraferme 04:26, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
You know, the same thing can happen with Surf/Fly Pikachu received from Nintendo events or whatever, they too can lose their moves via breeding, I'm quite sure of that. I don't think all of this really has to put down in trivia. Mudkipchan 04:30, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
I probably should have made it clearer, but I think that if they are just forgetting it because they are learning another move then it isn't worth being trivia at all, since it's just standard Day Care mechanics. If however, the moves are flat out deleted when they are put in the daycare (which I think is very unlikely) then it would be trivia because it is different from normal. Werdnae (talk) 06:16, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Wouldn't evolving them both to Raichu (which learns nothing from leveling up) allow one to breed an offspring with both surf and fly at the same time? Pip 13:27, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Holy crap egg moves do not work that way. The Pichu will be a normal Pichu, it will not know Surf and Fly. Why? Because it's not programmed to inherit it. They're event moves. Yes, the event Pikachu will forget Surf/Fly if you put it in the daycare... and level it up enough to forget it. Just like every other move. This is not any ~special case~ or anything. I don't know why anyone thought that a random event Pikachu had magically got some special breeding mechanics, but it doesn't. ▫▪Ťïňắ 15:14, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

On a related note though, a Surfing Pikachu, caught at level 14, knows Thunderbolt, which is usually only learned at level 26. A Flying Pikachu, on the other hand, caught at level 15, knows Thunder, which is usually only learned at level 45. These points, I would think, DO deserve mention in the Trivia section as they know moves that they normally only learn much later. Terraferme 04:56, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
