Alternate Coloration

Since it seems like it's been debated, rather than reverting an edit I'd prefer it discussed here. Since being made of crystal isn't the official alternate colour of Onix, I don't think it should be listed. Also, alternate coloration was not officially introduced yet (Gold/Silver wasn't released, and the concept wasn't formally introduced into the anime until EP154. Could a compromise be made by putting a link in the 'see also' section? ←{Berrymaster|Talk|Contrib}→ 01:31, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

You make a good point, but I accept the revert--KukiTalk 01:32, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget that a crystal Onix is alternate materialization--KukiTalk 01:33, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Well we say the Pink Butterfree is an alternate colored Pokémon, matter of fact the first to appear in the anime, yet it's not what the shiny version looks like. And that was way before the Crystal Onix. The meaning of alternate coloration doesn't mean it's "Shiny". It just simply means it's a different color then the norm of its species. --ケンジガール 01:34, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
The Pink Butterfree appeared in the anime before Shiny Pokémon had even been invented, and they just made the Butterfree pink to show that it was female. Still, I think it should still be on the list of Shiny Pokémon. But maybe the Crystal Onix should be in a sub-category called "Other Special Pokémon" or something like that.

Crystal Onix is still Rock/Ground typing isn't it? It was able to repel and even live in water, which rock and ground type cannot do.--Darknesslover5000 05:00, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Filler season of the anime from ten years ago. It's made of glass. TTEchidna 05:20, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh alright. Thanks. And in my opinion, all of the anime is filler--Darknesslover5000 07:28, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Concerning the typing of the Crystal Onix... I realize that fan-created sites are not canon, but can it be mentioned as trivia that on Global PokedeX Plus the Crystal Onix is a 'Novelty' Pokemon whose type is Rock/Ice? I♥Togetic 19:11, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Anime's take on the "Diamond Onix" Pokédex entry?

Could this have been a reference to the "Onix's body becomes more like diamond than rock if it lives for long enough" Pokédex entry from one of the early games? Can't remember which off the top of my head, but I know one of the earlier games (1st-generation) had an entry like that.

And though I'm sure it was a coincidence (I doubt the anime people knew exact details of Steelix and its weaknesses that far ahead of time), the "more resistant to water, but weaker against fire" thing also makes me think of the change from Rock to Steel that comes when an Onix evolves into Steelix... --FnrrfYgmSchnish (talk) 06:02, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

"As it grows, the stone portions of its body harden to become similar to a diamond, but colored black." ~ Pokémon Red and Blue It could be a possible reference, though I am not sure we could make use of this without it becoming speculation. --Super goku (talk) 06:26, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
