"Scrappy-Doo, the young nephew of Scooby-Doo, is usually the member of the team that unmasks fake ghosts."

WTF? Why is this in here? シンジShinjiLover,Edits 10:12, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Probably because whoever wrote it didn't know that "scrappy" is a word meaning "full of fighting spirit," and thus pretty close to its Japanese name of "Spunk." It's a huge stretch, so I'm going to remove it. Sqoon 22:54, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Its more likely the same as a lot of names in the series: A multiple-context pun. Seriously, having scrappy be a move that lets normal types affect ghost? I don't think its a coincidence. But I also don't think its the only way it works. But given the history of...very unusual pun names (Metagross. Try and figure out how many ways that can apply without stretching to that pokemon. Theres a lot.) its safe to assume that it had some influence. But of course this is all conjecture so until theres proof from the developers, it still shouldn't be on the page.

Does this mean the opponent is typeless or is its immunity just removed? ht14 14:00, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Scrappy is comparable to the moves Foresight and Odor Sleuth in regards to type coverage. It simply ignores the immunities. This means that a hypothetical Ghost/Steel Pokémon would take ½× against Normal and 2× against Fighting. --Shiningpikablu252 14:42, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Wonder Guard

Does this take precedence over Wonder Guard? Tk3141 21:28, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
