instead if being "possibly based" on a bagworm, should it just plain be he IS based on a bagworm? he is afterall the "Bagworm Pokemon" MAGNEDETHTALK 02:34, 12 December 2007 (UTC)


The Gen III front sprite isn't colored in all the way (top left). Worth noting as trivia? It's an error.--Barakku 00:21, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure it is, that's just bad ripping most likely. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 00:29, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Weird coloring in my game...

In my Pokémon Platinum game, I could swear that I have a Forretress with a purple shell. Why is that? - unsigned comment from Chuck67322 (talkcontribs)

No clue. --CuboneKing 00:58, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Well it is purple, but on my game it's a darker purple --Chuck67322 01:01, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
It could be something with your DS screen. --CuboneKing 01:02, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm gonna take a picture
This is gonna take a while...the pictures keep coming out fuzzy
Scratch the picture. Anyways, whatever. It doesn't matter if my Forretress is purple or not. --Chuck67322 01:09, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

There's nothing wrong with your game. In Platinum, Mareep, Natu, Xatu, Ursaring, and Forretress all got new color palettes. Chaos Rush 22:58, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Forretress can learn Earthquake via TM26, right? It's not listed in his moveset. Shipwreck Kelly 14:40, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

With Earthquake in its arsenal, Forretress is nearly unstoppable, being that Earthquake will take out the sole type to which it is weak: fire;-- add steel, rock, and poison types as bonuses. Thep0keman (talk) 03:04, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

First original Steel-type?

"Forretress is the first original Steel Pokémon in the National Pokédex order. (Magnemite's evolutionary line, which precedes Forretress, wasn't Steel-type in Generation I)." I don't think this counts, because Forretress didn't exist in Generation I. q~Bisumito~p 16:46, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

I would say that this is the same situation as Jigglypuff and the first Fairy type Pokémon from the Kalos region. Jigglypuff would be first one in the order, but it isn't the first Pokémon that was originally a Fairy type, that belongs to the Kalos Pokémon. --Super goku (talk) 16:58, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Name Origin

I always thought that the name had an aspect of ferrous--from the latin for iron or steel? That's where I figured the double r came from. Does anyone else see that, or is it just me?Harumei (talk) 13:13, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

I agree! Cyal (LeafGreen&Emerald) (talk) 00:20, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
