Fixed.

No. Just because the anime has a sewer in Castelia City doesn't mean it is the sewers from the game. Besides, the anime episode came well before B2W2.

This is where the term, a very early appearance, came from as the episode did air before the sequels of Black and White.

3. ## Re: Suggestions, ideas, and problems

I'd like to suggest adding information to the page Multi-hit move. Specifically, I think it would benefit the understanding of damage calculation if the average damage were calculated per move. Multi-hit moves (lasting 2-5 hits) are an oddity; the chances of 2 hits is 3/8, 3 is 3/8, 4 is 1/8, and 5 is 1/8. For instance, Fury Swipes does 18 damage per hit, but the average amount of hits is NOT (2+5)/2. Even veekun doesn't accurately explain the damage calculation, saying just that 80% accuracy factored into 18 power per hit is effectively 14.4 power.

I will be willing to calculate the different moves' effective powers if I can create two new columns in the table "List of Multi-hit Moves." The first new one would be Average Power, which would calculate the average power of a move if it hits. The other would be Effective Power, which factors in accuracy.

For example, given Fury Swipes's different chances of hitting a number of times, the Average Power is 54 ((36x3 + 54x3 + 72 + 90)/8). Considering the move only hits 80% of the time, the Effective Power would be 43.2. Make sense?

Again, I really feel like this would help everyone understand how these moves work. If Bulbapedia is supposed to be the most comprehensive and informative Pokémon wiki in the world, wouldn't this be part of that ideal?

This is all assuming that Bulbapedia is unlocked sometime in the near future.

After reading the talk page "Big Stadium and Small Court" about the amount of trainers the page will have to have added to get it complete, I would suggest splitting the page into "Big Stadium" and "Small Court" rather than having the page for both of them together.

I disagree. The "Castelia Sewers" refers to all sewers in Castelia City. I think it should be on the page.

When will the database be unlocked?

As also mentioned on the talk page, that can't be done properly because of the post-game trainers being in both locations.

Someone placed the gender of Barry's Staraptor as male without any evidence on how it is male (gender differences don't count since they can get confusing).

9. ## Re: Suggestions, ideas, and problems

I think it's because his Staraptor has a large spot on its forehead, but even then, that alone doesn't make good evidence as marking size-differences can vary in the anime.

Hugh's German name comes also from Matiz (portuguese for Hue).

Did you Google Translate it? I'm not sure if they really named him Hue because it means matriz in Portuguese, but it kind of makes sense. Some english websites claim "corless" to be Akuroma's English name, and cor is Portuguese for color, and "Achroma" seems to come from achromatic.

Oh, and I have a problem: every time I try to see any page that isn't the Main Page, I get an "Error 503 Service Unavailable".

I just watched the dub episode of An Amazing Aerial Battle! and no one in the episode mentioned Ash's Tranquill's glowing wings being the move Wing Attack. She was only told to accelerate in the sky if I remember correctly. Gust and Air Cutter had the glowing wings.

No, she was not told to accelerate. Ash simply said "Attack, now!", probably because of the dub re-writing, or it was their attempt to hide the fact that Pidove family cannot learn "Wing Attack" in the games. On the contrary, the Japanese version clearly mentioned the name of the move that is "Tsubasa de Utsu" (literally: Strike with Wings, or in simple words "Wing Attack").

Whoops, Skyla was the one who told her Pokémon to accelerate. As for Wing Attack, it may count as a Japanese version only error due to it being left out in the dub and there is a section for that. This happened before with Ash's Starly as it used Whirlwind in the dub and Gust in the Jap. version.

It wasn't left out but more of a re-worded. If it was an error and was suppose to be some other move, TPCi would have used the correct move name instead, like in the case of Starly, where they completely changed the move name and replaced the original move with something it could learn legitimately.
