I was looking at M. C. Escher drawing, and I found an interesting one that depicted a imaginary creature that may have been the inspiration for Donphan. You can find the link here.
Did anyone notice how in D/P/Pt/ and B/W the females have very tiny tusks where in HG/SS they're almost as long as the male's tusks? Shiramu Kuromu 22:12, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
I encountered a level 50 Donphan holding a Passho berry at Mount Silver in Heartgold. According to the berry's page the change of finding one on a Donphan or Panphy is 5%. Is this noteworthy enough to be included in the held items section of their pages ? Stephen Keane 00:08, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
- Yes, it certainly should be there. --SnorlaxMonster 06:31, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Sugimori artwork shown its HG/SS artwork? DonofLizards 18:38, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
- No, it's from FRLG, likely promoting Sevii Islands. You can see here that it's uploaded in early 2005.--電禅Den Zen 18:47, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh, so there was no new artwork for Pokémon that had already gotten FR/LG artwork? My mistake, sorry. DonofLizards 18:51, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
"During their breeding season, male Donphan compete for mates by rolling `as well to show how tough they are. This rolling is known as the Love Dance. Donphan are also known to have a keen sense of smell, at least in the sense of being able to detect amberite, and will upraise their trunks into the air to smell for it." As far as I can tell this is complete fanwank which clearly does not belong in an encyclopaedia. Unless anyone can find evidence otherwise, this is getting deleted. Radfox 19:47, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
