Which pokemon learns or knows this move? Little Freezachu/Freeze 13:33, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Like the page says, none. glikglak 14:00, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
I don't know if it would count, but I've found a YT vid showing Zygarde using Thousand Arrows. link Just a guy... Arceus42 (talk) 02:10, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
So, just got a response on Thousand Waves's page about it being a hack, so never mind on the video I previously posted, then. Just a guy... Arceus42 (talk) 02:26, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Power against airborne targets confirmation

For a good while, Thunder, Smack Down, and Hurricane were listed on Bulbapedia as having increased damage against targets in the semi-invulnerable turns of Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop, though after testing, that turned out to be false. Since Thousand Arrows is very similar to Smack Down in effect, I have a feeling that it probably doesn't deal double damage in this situation either, but I'm unable to check to make sure. Could somebody check this? VioletPumpkin (talk) 17:43, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Category addition

This move should be added to Moves that can hit semi-invulnerable Pokémon. VioletPumpkin (talk) 19:26, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

If there's no doubt about adding a category, all you have to do is... just add the category to the page. Nescientist (talk) 14:33, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
The page was listed as view source when I was going to add it, leading me to believe that the page was protected. Since it seemed plausible that the page was protected due to it being unreleased and featured in Sun/Moon trailers, I didn't bother checking to see if it was due to something else.

BTW it will always deal neutral damage if target is flying/levitating.--Dominikololo (talk) 13:32, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for testing. However, Showdown suggests it only does so when the target was Flying-type and not already grounded (so not against Eelektross, for example). (That's similar to the Iron Ball in Gen V.) I've included what you wrote here, but very carefully for now. If you do have more precise (i.e., more general) information, please feel free to improve the wording yourself. Nescientist (talk) 13:19, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Type Effectiveness?

Is the type effectiveness chart really necessary? The move isn't wildly different from other Ground-type moves in its effectiveness, it's just able to hit Flying-types. (which is already mentioned in the article) TechSkylander1518 (talk) 18:01, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm not invested one way or the other, but I'd like to point out that this is basically the same principle as the type charts on Freeze-Dry and Flying Press, so all three should either stay or go all together. It shouldn't be inconsistent between the three. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:11, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

I have completed the asked question of "Is Thousand Arrows super effective against Flying in Inverse Battles?" And the answer is, Yes! This can allow people to add the required Inverse Battle Information onto the Thousand Arrows move page (accessable via clicking on the move name in this case) --OctoZak22 (talk) 20:46, 1 January 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for the research, I have removed the question from the page and added the information to the inverse battle page where it is more appropriate to mention. Pikiwyn talk 22:28, 1 January 2023 (UTC)
