Would it be okay for me to put a trivia/notes section for this move? Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it's the only Special Dark-type move. Pokemon.princesses 00:27, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Do itDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 00:55, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
No, don't do it. It's not necessary to mention. -01:29, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Its the only special dark move in Gen IV. Its deserves a mentionDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 01:40, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
You can see that when someone looks it up. It's redundant. -Sketch 01:47, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
But what person would look up every dark type move to find out they they are all phsycial except for that oneDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 01:51, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
*Raises hand* Besides, it's already mentioned on the Dark-type page where this sort of stuff goes. Aura-Knight 01:53, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Still, on this wiki we assume they cant click on other pages....just look at all the disambigationsDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

When I use dark pulse it only seems to affect the pokemon I select as the target, but this page lists it as potentially affecting all pokemon except the user. Does dark pulse randomly affect more than the target pokemon? or is a correction needed? --Astraloasis 15:05, 26 May 2010 (UTC)


The infobox seems to be overlapping the image gallery. This is happening on other pages as well. I noticed this a while ago, actually, but assummed that something would be done about it, as it's a fairly noticeable problem. However, nothing happened, so now I'm saying something. Doesn't ANYBODY else notice and/or care?! I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 18:03, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

That doesn't happen to me. What browser are you using??? --Theryguy512 18:49, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Edit Request

Zoroark needs to be added to the In The Anime section. I tried to do it, but I can't quite get it right. :P --Landfish7 20:42, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

I'll be able to do it when the english version comes out? But I dunno how long that will be. Littlmiget123 14:44, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

I think that she only used Night Burst.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 15:14, 1 November 2010 (UTC)


What's meant by the breeding chart? My first thought was an event move, but no such event is listed currently. Though, would that even count as chain breeding? OK, I checked around on other sources before saving, and it appears to mean that you need to get the egg move from something in the 4th generation. So it seems misleading to list the Monozu family as the only potential source parents, though it's true that those three can only pass it on through chain breeding. Ekans and Arbok might be more helpful listings. PLA 15:22, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it is currently pretty pointless. Go ahead and change them.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 15:35, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Honestly, I'm not familiar with the code. Though I notice that Ekans, Arbok and Seviper are already in the code, though not visible in the article yet, so that's good. I cross-checked anyway, and they seem to be all of them. PLA 09:44, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for the extra edit, but the last one is just incorrect. I forgot about Gyarados. PLA 09:48, 11 January 2011 (UTC)


Sableye can learn this move by breeding a female sableye with a male lucario who knows the move - unsigned comment from Stomata (talkcontribs)

What generation? In Generation IV, Sableye learns it by TM. Werdnae (talk) 10:21, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

No, I had a Lucario with the move in generation IV, I bred it with a female Sableye, and I got a Sableye with the move - unsigned comment from Stomata (talkcontribs)

I didn't use a TM (with the move) on the female Sableye, or the child - unsigned comment from Stomata (talkcontribs)

Read the page I linked. If the father knows the move and the child can learn it by TM, the child will know the move. Regardless of whether a TM was actually ever used or not. Werdnae (talk) 22:23, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

those moves aren't variations

With the exception of waterfall none of those moves that are listed as variations are actually variations. dark pulse's secondary effect has a 20% chance while scald, lava plume etc have a 30% chance.0danmaster0 (talk) 18:38, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I've noticed that. Feel free to bring this up on the template's talk page. --NOBODY (talk) 12:04, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Uses Aura Energy

I know Pulse and Aura moves are treated separate, but the official Nintendo Lucario Amiibo page says that Dark Pulse Uses Aura Energy

Lucario can track a form of energy called an aura, given off by all living creatures. Lucario is the only known Fighting- and Steel-type Pokémon and evolves from Riolu during the day when its happiness is high enough. Lucario specializes in attacks that use aura energy, like Dark Pulse, and its can’t-miss move, Aura Sphere.

Should this be mentioned? Yamitora1 (talk) 05:25, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Is this trivia worthy?

When Gladion's Umbreon used Dark Pulse in SM027, it was the first time since the move's introduction that the animation was different that the usual black rings shrouded in purple aura. Is that trivia worthy? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 22:49, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Move animations change all the time, so no. Drought trivia should only be for important things like a Pokémon capture or a move being used, not a move's animation.--ForceFire 02:10, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
