Generation V

Just a heads up: it's being reported by multiple sources (SPP, PokéBeach, PokéJungle) that Growth's effect has been altered in Generation V; it now boosts both Attack and Special Attack by one stage. The source for this information seems to be this blog entry from the BW Bus Tour.

Not sure what the policy for posting this is, so I'll just leave it here for whoever feels more confident in doing so. --The Great Butler 04:05, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

I think this page is protected, but it's certain that this is the case with Growth, so an admin needs to change it. Pokemonemerfan1954 12:36, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Now that Growth raises two stats, but has 40PP, should we consider it a variation of Bulk Up (15~20PP)? 15israellai (talk) 08:07, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Beta Name?

Page 4 of Pokémon Power volume 2 states, "Bellsprout often begins the battle with Catapult, which will increase the power of its special attacks." This leads me to believe that Catapult may have been a beta name for Growth. Would this be worth mentioning either here or on the Pokémon Red and Green beta page? --Bardock 00:31, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

I think it might be possible to note in the trivia, but it makes no sense to me as to why it would be called Catapult, since it is nothing like one and there is no way it could be a mistranslation. --SnorlaxMonster 23:15, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
