Machop → Machoke

Didn't Man's Machop evolve into Machoke in Generation II? - Maxim

Yep. --TMF T - C 15:52, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
No. Please see this screen taken from Pokémon Silver. I read «Machop: ...» --Valepert 05:45, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
That's strange...I fired up the Crystal version tonight and sure enough, it's a Machop. I have no idea where the Machoke idea came from (as I know I read it somewhere), but the fact is that it is a Machop.
It does bear a striking resemblance to Machoke in appearance, however. Maybe that's where I got the idea from. --TMF T - C 01:58, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
if there is going to be a GSDS my guess is that it will evolve or the house will even be finished!--lord mada 18:35, 3 June 2008 (UTC) that is if GSDS has a kanto region--lord mada 18:37, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
But it wasn't evolved in GS, why would it in GSDS? TTEchidna 02:23, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Because lots of things change in remakes and i cant think of any examples --lord mada 08:57, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Brick Piece

I always thought it was interesting that when you traded a RBY Machop over to GSC, it arrived with a trade-only item called a 'Brick Piece'. It appears to have no purpose, but it only recently occurred to me that there could be a link between this guy in Vermilion owning a Machop, and needing materials to finish his house... could be a coincidence, I suppose, but I never thought to investigate. Does anyone know if there is a link? -Timothy.

There is no link. Brick Piece has no purpose, except to pad out certain values from RBY (IIRC the traded held item is based off the RBY catch rate). IIMarckus 07:47, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Vermilion Port

Does anyone want to bring up the fact that with the construction of the Cycling Road, aka Route_17, which doesn't feature a drawbridge, it's impossible for Vermilion City to ACTUALLY be a port in any video game it's featured in? Just a thought for the trivia section... Seiyaryen 03:17, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

This has been bugging me, I'm going to add this in the Trivia section. TailsDM 23:14, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Spelling of "vermilion"

Although the in-game spelling of the city's name is "Vermilion" with one 'L', I always assumed this to be a text limit restriction. As "vermilion" and "vermillion" are interchangeable spellings, should we take note of this? TailsDM 23:25, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

No. It's still a correct spelling. Unlike Feraligatr. —darklordtrom 23:56, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey guys, I found some Unobtanium!

So I was running around Vermillion in Pokémon Gold, using my ItemFinder everywhere in an attempt to find that confounded lost Pokédoll for the Copycat — and I went into the Vermillion Harbor and I got a beep. I searched all around in the only area I could access, and then I realized: the item was inaccessible. SO, in a fit of frustration (and curiosity at what in blue-thundering-blazes the item really was), I fired up Pokémon Gold in an emulator and walked through walls all the way to Vermillion to find out. And guess what? It's the Iron that's also hidden (in a similar location) in HeartGold/SoulSilver! :D Too bad I'll never be able to obtain it without a GameShark… :( I guess you can add it to the list of items that are in Vermillion City, though. :D -Kizul Emeraldfire 08:40, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Vermillion Harbor

Anyone have a map? All generations. I want to see where the S.S. Anne's truck is in relation to the port. --Abcboy (talk) 21:10, 26 October 2012 (UTC)


Doesn't this article need the layouts for Vermilion City? Other places in the series on this website have layouts of every generation they're included in. There's also files on this website that show the layout of the city in all generations, and they say that the Vermilion City article page links to those files, when it doesn't. Is this a flaw? I don't know if this would be considered an issue or not, but I personally think these articles should show all layouts for the cities or towns in the series' main games. Korbel (talk)

It's in the infobox under "Other generation maps". Just click the show button. --Abcboy (talk) 19:52, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
Oh. I didn't see that. Seems obsure, but whatever. Thanks for telling me, man. Helps a lot. Korbel (talk) 02:14, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Vermilion Harbor - Shellder lvl 10 not possible to catch in Pokemon Yellow

Hi! I don't know if this is the right place to write about this, but previously this page told me that I can catch Shellder lvl 10 at Vermilion Harbor in Pokemon Yellow with Super Rod. However, it seems that this info was wrong, because if the "harbor" is the long part of the bridge, then there is only 2 pokemon available: Tentacool and Horsea just like in Vermilion City. But if the "harbor" is the short part of the bridge just before the S.S.Anne, then that part of the bridge is unavailable when I finally get the Super Rod because the ship has already left and the guy blocks me from going there. Also in order to get the Super Rod I need to have Cut which means that I must complete the S.S Anne part first. I know I can get Shellder elsewhere but I wanted to get the lvl 10 one. - unsigned comment from Tsingiz (talkcontribs)

You can return to the harbor after obtaining Cut via various tricks. --Abcboy (talk) 20:21, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
