What's up with Dewgong having entries like "--, 11"? What's that supposed to mean? (talk) 05:27, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

That is the levels that Icy Wind is learned. "--" means it is a base move (known from level 1). The separation "--, 11" means that in the earlier games of that Gen, the level at which the Pokémon learned the move was "--", while the second number is later games in that Gen.

Sorry, I double checked. It means that the Pokémon learns the move at level "Start" (ie level 1) and can learn the move later as well, if it was forgotten. Adamws (talk) 05:37, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Icy Wind didn't cover the whole Totem Raticate.

I was finally playing Ultra Moon & I used Icy Wind, and the animation covered Ratatta in ice, but not the totem Raticate. I don't know if it applies to all totems, or all moves, but should I mention it as trivia somewhere? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 18:52, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Do you mean that Totem Raticate's model is large enough that it was not fully within the animation's boundaries? I would theoretically think that would apply to many Pokemon with large models. I would be hesitant to mention it anywhere until a list can be compiled of exactly which models don't fit (and which moves' animations this applies to; I doubt it's exclusive to Icy Wind).

Yes, that is what I meant. I almost added it immediately, but then I realized it might not apply (plus, I don't want to repeat history). ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 18:58, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Gallade

Gallade can learn Icy Wind if Kirlia learned by Move Tutor in ORAS or USUM, how to put in on this page ? Carto (talk) 02:52, 20 June 2019 (UTC) - unsigned comment from Carto (talkcontribs)

It doesn't have to be on this page more than it already is. Kirlia learns the move by move tutor (stated). Kirlia evolves to Gallade. Gallade ends up knowing the move. Gallade never learns Icy Wind, it just can have the move from a prior evolution. This is really common, and doesn't need to be explicitly said in move pages.
