Metal Claw

The charmander in Fire red and Leaf green was capable of learning Metal Claw by level. It hasn't been able to do this in any other game. While I realise this was most likely done to make the battle against Brock a bit less hopeless. It also somewhat implies that that particular Charmander was bred by Prof. Oak from a female member of the Charmander family, and a male of the Aron one. XD As this is pretty much the only way they still can learn Metal Claw at all. --Flameblight 11:46, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Not really because then the charmander would have the attack as it comes to the player --D i o n 2 4 11:54, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Breedable Gen III Moves

I think it should be noted that Charmander can also learn Dragon Dance in Gen III by breeding with a Gyarados. Also, that it needs to be chain bred. Yourlilemogirl 03:41, 15 July 2010 (UTC)


I disagree with the trivia "This is likely so that Charmander would have at least one move to use against the Pewter City Gym.", so I went ahead an removed it.

The logic would make sense *IF* you got Charmander FIRST and then worked your way up to Pewter City, but that is not the case in HG and SS. |Cynn's Thong| 14:09, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Well, Charmander isn't a starter Pokémon in HGSS, and by the time you get to Pewter City you have plenty more than just your starter (I hope). The trivia's really meant in reference to FRLG, so I'm going to add it back. Trivia doesn't have to be relevant to only the most recent game. --ZestyCactus 15:38, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Then explain the logic behind "so that Charmander would have at least one move to use against the Pewter City Gym" if you are not even able to obtain Charmander in-game story-wise until after (and by after I mean way' after) you get the badge. I would love to see your answer. I am reverting it back. Use your head and think before you revert. Peace out, kiddie. |Cynn's Thong| 16:01, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
...what? This trivia isn't about HGSS. This is about Generation III (Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen), where you do get Charmander before the first Badge, assuming it is your starter Pokémon. --ZestyCactus 16:06, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

It's Animated Sprite is Missing A Frame.

Title sums it up. --Landfish7 22:46, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

BW sprites

There is a difference between the sprites from Black and White. --Teddi'Ampha

Could you tell what kind of difference it is?--Den Zen 15:53, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
The default frame of the non-Shiny sprite is mid-animation. --SnorlaxMonster 16:03, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
