What happens when a Pokémon with Vital Spirit or Insomnia uses Rest? All Pokémon with these two abilities can learn Rest, so what happens?

I think Rest will fail, I've never actually tried it... Tesh 11:23, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
I've tried, and Rest will automatically fail. Doesn't make sense, actually; why let them learn the move if they can't use it in the first place? Diachronos 17:24, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
It's similar to Mew learning Attract or something of that sort. It'll fail. ht14 17:26, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Out of Battle

What exactly does "higher-leveled" mean in this case? Schreiber 14:22, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I think it means a higher level, such as a level 32 Pichu instead of a level 29 Pichu. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 14:31, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Dream world

When I was tucking in my Vigoroth into the Dream World, it said that it doesn't seem sleepy now. This probably meant that Vigoroth's ability, Vital Spirit, prevented it from being selected. PattyMan 17:36, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't think it's the Ability. I've tucked in Vital Spirit Elekid and Insomnia Delibird with no trouble before. --SnorlaxMonster 17:43, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
What made the Vigoroth not feel sleepy then? PattyMan 17:58, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I think that's the message that was given to Pokémon that couldn't be sent to the Dream World back when mainly only Unovans could go. So I guess that means Vigoroth can't be sent yet. Which is strange, because I was under the impression everything could. --SnorlaxMonster 18:00, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Well its Nov. 25 of 2012 now, and you STILL can't tuck the silly thing in! *Something* must be going on with it, but if you can tuck other pokemon with Vital Spirit into bed...I have no idea what it could be. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 20:41, 25 November 2012 (UTC)


It says that it increases the chances of finding a Pokémon by 50% then gives the example of 25% to 75%. This isn't how statistics work, it would be 25% to 37.5%, because it's 50% of the original value, not a clean 100%. I haven't changed it in case this is what the games actually do to those numbers, but if it is just "increase by 50%", then it should be changed. Pallukun (talk) 19:43, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
