You've seen Toxicroak there? Strange, my game says that it is Area Unknown. --Babyg 22:34, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- Yay, I have a User Talk page.
Munchlax's Dex entry says it is Area Unknown, yet it can be found (Extremely rarely) in honey trees. For the record:
a. Other honey tree Pokemon have all the honey tree locations, but Munchlax has Area Unknown.
b. Tangela and Tropius are said by many to be obtainable. I will find out myself.
c. Toxicroak: Found in the marsh, but couldn't catch. About as hard as Kangaskhan, and my that was hard. - Jonah 22:37, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- Oh. --Babyg 22:45, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- Additionally, to answer your question about Tropius and Tangela:
Tropius can be found, but is rare. Tangela, however, is found during a sawrm on the snowy top of Mt. Coronet. Babyg 20:14, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. I'll try to find one on the telescope. That's how you find them, right? Jonah 20:16, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
- Yup, Tropius can only be found through looking through there (well not really but it's rare otherwise). Babyg 01:26, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Accented é and other things.
Sorry, copypasted that table (I've never gotten the hang of making tables myself), but other than when I'm copypasting, I always accent the e. Also, thanks - I didn't know whether there was a space or not. - Jonah 23:07, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
- It does not. Jonah 15:47, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
- Yes it does. Look where it says "Anime Counterpart". "Counterpart" means that they have the same characteristics, including age, as Red. --Shiny Noctowl 15:48, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
- Ash is not Red. He is based on Red (That is, he's one of Red's counterparts) but he is not Red, and therefore details applying to Ash do not apply to Red. Does Ash have an Espeon? Is Red currently traveling in Sinnoh? NO. - Jonah 15:51, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
- What proof do you have that Red is 11? --Shiny Noctowl 15:52, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
- The Red/Blue booklet. - Jonah 15:55, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
- Okay then. Scan the page in the booklet and upload it to Bulbapedia. Then I will believe you. --Shiny Noctowl 15:56, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
I have the booklet too. I can vouch for him. --Greengiant 16:23, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay. I usually manage to catch my second person writing. I'll be more careful in the future. --Shiny Noctowl 21:37, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
I saw that you added descriptions of Platinum-exclusive shows to the Jubilife TV page. Of particular note is Pokémon Search, which you described as being about "a research team [that] searches for either the red Gyarados, Lugia, or Ho-Oh.".
I've been told that the original red Gyarados report from Diamond and Pearl is retained in Platinum, though it is no longer part of the beginning of the game. I recently got Platinum and have been keeping an eye on the TV shows in hopes of seeing the report; I theorized that it would be activated by a certain event in the plot, so I constantly watched TV each time I obtained a badge or defeated Team Galactic. Today, after winning against Saturn in Lake Valor, I observed the news and was positively surprised to find the text I remembered from Diamond and Pearl. But I quickly came to realize that the subject of the report was the "Mysterious Flying Pokémon", rather than the red Gyarados. The fact that the Pokémon was said to drift in the sky (without causing destruction by merely fluttering its wings) suggested it was Ho-oh, although Lugia can't be ruled out altogether, either.
I am curious to know if you've run into a separate report that better fits Lugia's description. Also, do you remember at what point in the game you watched the red Gyarados report, and any of the other two, for that matter? I am trying to determine if their broadcast is indeed event-dependent, as opposed to being randomly chosen according to what day it is. It seems like too big a coincidence for the show to be broadcast right after an important event like the detonation of the Galactic Bomb, but I can't be certain based on my experience alone. --Unown Lord 15:24, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
That was Ho-Oh's report. Lugia's report has the reporters go to the Whirl Islands. There are three separate reports I've encountered so far. I think that the first time I watched Variety Hour, in Twinleaf, before getting my first Pokémon - I think that the Red Gyarados report was one of the shows featured on the channel. I do not remember when I watched the other two. I hope I've been of some help. Jonah 21:56, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
