Ruby Pokedex Spelling Error

I have an American Ruby Version, and despite what it says here, Mawile's name is spelled right in my Pokedex there. Do I have a different version, or is the information here wrong? My Ruby was bought at an American Target store about six years ago. If the info in Mawile's page here is wrong, then can anyone confirm that the spelling error actually occurs and in which versions?--Celebi96 22:03, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

You mean Mawhile? There are some spelled right, and some are spelled incorrectly. ht14 22:09, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
It just says that the misspelling is in American Ruby entries, though, and was fixed for the European release. Was it fixed in later versions of American Ruby? And if so, can we maybe pinpoint a date when it might have been fixed?--Celebi96 22:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Trivia Fact No Longer True

Since the new generation five pokemon have been reveald, Giaru a new pure steel type has made an appearance. Because of this the following fact should be changed as it is proven to be false. "Mawile, along with Registeel, are the only pure Steel-type Pokémon. As such, this makes Mawile the only non-legendary pure Steel-type." EpisShadow 1:59 17 July 2010 (UTC)

gear isnt legendary

and the trivia should just be removed altogether then(Ataro 20:07, 17 July 2010 (UTC))

Actually, EpicShadow didn't mean Giaru, or Gear, was legendary, that was the trivia EpicShadow meant to remove, not what it would be with Giaru counted. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:08, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
Actualy I meant to point out the fact that with Giaru/Gear being an official Pokémon Mawile is no longer the only non-legendary pure steel type like the fact says it is. And I do think it would be esiest to just remove the fact unless you would prefer to wait until all the new generation Pokémon are reveald to edit the fact so it is true. The only problem is that with more pure steel types there is no longer anything unique about Mawile's type. EpisShadow 3:38 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Mawile sprites

There is a confusion on the sprites, I believe. Is the DP sprite and the HGSS sprite the same, or is the Pt sprite and the HGSS sprite the same? It's a bit tough in terms of the coloring, but it's good to know. ht14 19:52, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

The HGSS Sprite is the same as the Pt one, with the foot pointing up. The DP one is different, with the foot pointing straight. --SnorlaxMonster 12:28, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Fixed. --SnorlaxMonster 12:30, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Sprite Trivia

I can't word it good enough, but Mawile is the only pokemon to stand backwards, with its face turned to the trainer. This is true for every sprite and even for Sugimori's artwork. Exeggutor is shown to have no faces on it's back in BW and Claydol has it's face, well, everywhere... --ЫъГЬ 05:39, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

TM 30: Shadow Ball

Shadow Ball cannot be learned by Mawile in Ruby/Sapphire. The following picture was taken by me moments ago, with Ruby on my DS. 220px Gebuskrost 05:19, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

It's been removed from the Gen III section. --P S Yライダー 05:37, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Possible Name Origin

Mawile live in caves....could its name be based off the Movile Cave in Romania? Yamitora1 (talk) 10:51, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

That'd be a very large stretch, to base it's name on that simply because it is found in caves. It's more of a coincidence. Crystal Talian 03:49, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Mawhile has new evolution/type

Do to the new Coro Coro scans realeased, which have been confirmed, Mawhile has been shown and confirmed to have a Mega Evolution and to be changed to have the secondary type, Fairy - unsigned comment from Nelo3211 (talkcontribs)

I think the staff are aware of that (seeing the recent page protectings going on). PattyMan 16:37, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

mawile to do with carniverous plants?

"Mawile can also learn a few Grass-type moves, which may indicate a relation to a carnivorous plant, similar to Carnivine." mawile can learn two grass moves, solar beam and grass knot, neither of which have to do with biting at all. 0danmaster0 (talk) 16:25, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

very small nitpick

in the evolution section fairy is written with a lowercase f. It's very jarring to look at 0danmaster0 (talk) 19:32, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Mega Mawile

3'03" (1m) and 51.8 lbs. (23.5 kg). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 07:37, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Horn Maw Jaw

In several of Mawile's Pokédex entries it says that Mawiles "jaws" are actually steel horns that have been transformed. Could this possibly imply that its horn/jaws were, at some point, not jaw-like? If so, could this imply a pre-evolution or an alternate primitive version of Mawile once existed?--ShinyPatch (talk) 18:00, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

That would be speculation, so we can't write it in the article. Note that if something is implied, it is not confirmed. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:03, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Oh, OK, I just wondered if it was an interesting enough point to make. Thanks for clearing it up for me.--ShinyPatch (talk) 18:05, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Page graphical error

The page's picture section is looking strange... I certainly am not experienced enough to fix it myself, but.... just saying TheBurningPro 13:47, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Ok now it's not... TheBurningPro 13:49, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

We've been experiencing some technical difficulties with the Bulbagarden Archives, which supplies the images for the other wikis. We're working on getting everything fixed and working smoothly again. --Pokemaster97 18:40, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Mawile's Type Effectiveness Prior to Gen VI

"In Generation II-Generation V, the effectiveness of Ghost-type moves was ½×."

It looks like Mawile's type effectiveness for all other generations of Pokémon before the current gen have been dissolved into notes underneath. The only issue is that the note for the Ghost-type effect seems to state that Mawile existed prior to Gen III. I have tried working with the template, but it's rigid and requires someone who knows the codes for this one to fix it. C.Wallace (Talk|Contribs) 18:31, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I notice that this is referring to all Steel-types, but it doesn't make sense in this context as Mawile was not introduced until Gen III. If it is going to say that steel-types had resistance to ghost-type moves, it should be clearly written that it is about all steel-type Pokés. C.Wallace (Talk|Contribs) 18:34, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Egg Move addition

I have added Midnight Lycanroc to the Egg Move entry for Ancient Power. I have bred a female Mawile with a male Lycanroc, and it produced Ancient Power. Macsen (talk) 12:43, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

How did Lycanroc obtain Ancient Power? According to its page, it cannot have it. I assume that the Mawile parent already knew Ancient Power, which is why it has been passed down to the baby!? Nescientist (talk) 14:21, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
