This is the exact same type, PP and effect and Mind Reader, should this be a variation, or should it just be mentioned in the trivia? Thanks, Samjohn95 16:32, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

It is a variation. They are exactly the same, except for the Pokémon that can learn it. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 18:12, 1 January 2010 (UTC)


This was definitely NOT the move Lock-On from Shiny Metagross!!! This was its calculating skill so that it knew how to shoot the stones. But if Team Rocket were gone out of the course of the stones the stones would have missed them. The stones had not followed them. But they would by a real Lock-On! Metagross aimed at the place where Team Rocket was standing. Lock-On would not hit the place but the opponent, so that it doesn't mind if the opponent tries to evade; the move follows the target. So it was not the move but only Metagross calculating. Wake up, Metagross do not even learn Lock-On... --- Pokémon Questions? -- 07:40, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Were the words "Lock On" used in either the dub or the original? If neither then I agree. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 08:05, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
Most of your reasoning doesn't even matter because anime =/= games. The only reasoning behind this would be whether it was told to use the attack or not. LimeGreenCharizard 08:20, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
