Talk:Rock Tomb (move)

So for the DP description for this move, it mentions the flinching effect, not the speed drop like Pt does. I guess it doesn't really matter, since they still both do the same thing, but it's just something I noticed after restarting Pearl. So... if somebody sees fit that we should change it, then drop a comment I guess. R.A. Hunter Blade 04:12, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Clian Dwebble?

Can someone to add in the anime section for Cilan's s Dwebble please - unsigned comment from Emeraldben (talkcontribs)

It didn't use Rock Tomb. It used Rock Slide. Also, remember to sign your comments with the 4 tildes ~~~~. But also remember not to resign comments that you forgot to sign. --ケンジガール 03:57, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Discolored Trapinch?

The Trapinch icon/sprite thing in the table of anime appearances isn't the normal coloration. It's really pink looking, whereas Trapinch is orange. It's not shiny, either, since its shiny form is blue, not pink. Is this a mistake? Wynd Fox 02:40, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Nope. Some menu sprites are just weird like that. Delcatty's is like that too. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:43, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh, that's strange. Oh well, c'est la vie.
Agh, forgot to sign. Well, the above was by me. Wynd Fox 02:47, 5 September 2011 (UTC)


When playing Pokémon Y, a CPU Trainer's Machoke used Rock Tomb on my Mega Aerodactyl while it was using fly. The animation was just the rocks forming where Aerodactyl would have been if it wasn't flying (on the ground). Can anyone duplicate this glitch, or was it just a one-time bug?

I tested it, and the attack hit like normal. I don't think it's a glitch or a bug, I think Rock Tomb can just hit targets even if they're in the air. Unless you're referring to an animation error, cause with mine it didn't seem like there was any kind of error with the animation itself. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:17, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Oop, never mind. I was dumb. It's because the Machoke has No Guard. That's why Rock Tomb hits. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:24, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Ah, missed a few things when I jumped from Gen 3 to 6. Sorry about that. Nairbnroh (talk) 10:08, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Rock Tomb has larger rocks

I noticed while playing Pokemon X that the rocks during Rock Tomb's animation while my Aerodactyl was megaevolved are quite larger than when in regular form.

I was wondering if that's something that should be mentioned in the article if this is unique to this move. If not, is there a page for moves that change when a pokemon is megaevolved?
