I think it's kind of weird that instead of having both Solgaleo and Lunala, it changes depending on the time of day. In Sun and Moon, you can get the one exclusive to the version, even if it's night or day, respectively. Either way, it's limiting to only show one: it doesn't tell us that it can evolve into either depending on the version. I have a template in my userspace User:Celadonkey/NebbyInfobox that could be moved to the mainspace and used here. --Celadonkey 13:24, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

I strongly agree. Switches have already been depreciated on most of our pages for this exact reason: it's highly confusing to users who don't know that it switches, which are the vast majority of Bulbapedia's audience. IMO, the staff must mainspace your template or a similar one. It's ridiculous to use a switch here. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 15:00, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Can anyone tell me if there are other pages about game-exclusive Pokemon "characters" that actually use the anime infobox...? Tiddlywinks (talk) 16:32, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
As far as I'm aware, this is the first core series only Pokémon NPC we have. Chosen changed it to the anime infobox, presumably because yes, all Pokémon characters have it as well. Nescientist (talk) 16:57, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Splash and Teleport

I don't want to persuade anyone that we know Nebby didn't know Splash and Teleport as a Cosmog, but I doubt we know it did.

  • Splash: Yes, Lillie commands it to use Splash in front of the Dimensional Research Lab. Nebby's reaction, however, is just "Pew?"
  • Teleport: We see a light from Lillie's bag in the opening cutscene, and we have this in Lillie's diary:
Nebby shone brighter than anything... And before I knew what had happened, we had found our way to meet Professor Burnet. But how did we get there? Is it some strange power that Nebby has? Did it do this?

When we look at Cosmog's moveset, yes, it's possible it knows Splash and Teleport. When seeing how Nebby has an unusual moveset when caught, however, I think it could also be some abstract mysterious power. Nescientist (talk) 21:53, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Considering that those are the only two moves that Cosmog can possibly learn, Nebby must know at least one of them... Since Lillie commanded Nebby to use Splash in game, and it's never stated that its teleportation power is Teleport, I'd say that's the most realistic option. --Celadonkey 22:09, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm hesitant on that line of logic, Celadonkey. You're making an assumption that a story-only NPC (which Nebby is, as a Cosmog) has to follow the same "must know at least one move" rule that battleable Pokémon must follow, but it's entirely possible that this is just a requirement of the battle system and not an intrinsic lore part of the Pokémon universe. And even if we say for the sake of argument that Nebby must know a move, Bulbapedia's standard is not to assume things, and we don't know for sure which move. I agree with Nescientist.

That's fair. I mean, I don't really care too much on the subject, but I think that if we're accepting Hau's calling Meowth "Kantonian", I think we should accept Nebby being able to learn splash, or at least something like "Nebby is commanded to use Splash by Lillie". But like I said, this isn't gonna be an issue I'm going to argue about. --Celadonkey 11:10, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Internet meme

I figured this is worth bringing up since something similar exists on the page for Mudkip. Basically, like Mudkip, Nebby has become the source of an internet meme which in this case is "Get in the bag Nebby". So does anyone this is worth mentioning on the page? Like I said, I'm only bringing this up because of Mudkip and I honestly don't expect anyone to say yes.
