Rock Smash

How do you get Nosepass through Rock Smash? GlalieGuy 19:03, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

You can break certain rocks with Rock Smash. Sometimes they turn out to be Nosepass or Geodude. --DarkfireTaimatsu 19:14, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
It has to be the rocks in the bottom level of Granite Cave that you break, or else you will always get Geodude. --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quizFile:224MS.gif 20:47, 4 September 2007 (UTC)


Why does this article say that Nosepass is common in Ruby and Sapphire? There are only seven rocks that it can be found in, and it hardly ever appears when you break those rocks (usually nothing appears, when something does appear it's usually Geodude). This part of the article is kind of misleading, so I think it should be fixed. - Buddy Christ 22:42, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

What is misleading about it? When using Rock Smash in Granite Cave, 30% of Pokémon encounters are Nosepass. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 22:46, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
The common-uncommon-rare thing is misleading in and of itself. As long as it says "rock smash rocks" then it's fine... TTEchidna 03:44, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I wonder

I know this convoluted thing wouldn't be programmed into the games, but.. If a Magnezone held a Magnet, would Nosepass go crashing into it? It could also go the other way, though.

Though its appearance suggests otherwise, Nosepass has a catch rate of 255.

What does this even mean? Kajillion 06:35, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

It looks like one of those rare Pokémon like Scyther or Mr. Mime. TTEchidna 06:38, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. Plus its sprite makes it seem like it's making an angry face. Baby G 20:06, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
It's opinionated though, not to mention unclear. I've removed it so now more hassles. — THE TROM — 08:36, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
I forgot having an 'angry face' subtracts 100 from the catch rate...Trom is right, it's opinion and has to go. -- evkl (need to talk?) 15:53, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't "appearance" refer to how often it "appears"? ΘρtιmαtumTalk 15:54, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, right, maybe. But that word generally means how it looks. A better word ought to be found, but it's still technically uncommon. — THE TROM — 08:41, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


"However, a Magnemite's mostly electric moves would not be able to harm the Nosepass, being a Rock type."

Indeed, since we all know, electric attacks cannot harm rock types. I mean, just look at Onix.[/sarcasm]--Skaisdead 21:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Trufax. I think I'll edit that out... Zesty Cactus 21:30, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Edit Request

Anime Pokedex entries Ash's Pokedex AG016 'Nosepass, the Compass Pokémon. Nosepass has a nose that functions as an electromagnet and determines location by moving its nose about.' - unsigned comment from Littlmiget123 (talkcontribs)


"Nosepass was the only Pokémon that can be found through HM means other than Surf. This only applies to Generation III, and with the move Rock Smash. With the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver, this honor is now given to Dunsparce. In the Post-National Pokédex Safari Zone extension of Pokémon Emerald, this also applied to Shuckle." What about Geodude in R/S/E? --i herd u liek Treakos? 00:15, 3 February 2010 (UTC) Kimori-Hinoarashi
