    Or whatever. I wouldn't be entirely opposed to that.
    I'd go out on a limb and say I'm in favor of it.

    Seems kind of like common knowledge which ball would be best... you're not going to use a Dive Ball on a Zangoose or something.

    Doesn't seem necessary.

    I think that there should be a size comparison for the Pokemon. You know, for those who aren't good at picturing measurements.

    It's come to my attention that several, if not many or all, of the Pokémon pages misuse the word "Physiology" in the section of the same name.

    Physiology is the science of biologic functions. For example, one would study in a medical physiology course how the kidney works, how the immune system works, etc. It is the science which explores how life systems operate.

    However, the section titled "Physiology" in the pages I have seen (e.g. Houndoom, Arceus) does not describe anything physiologic at all. Instead, it is almost entirely taxonomic, describing markings, colorings, body shapes, and the presence of special features such as horns, wings, or hooves. You get the picture. It's not physiologic in the slightest.

    Please consider renaming these sections in order to improve the professionalism of Bulbapedia as a whole. As it stands, this mistake makes Bulbapedia look unprofessional to those who know what the term "physiology" truly means.

    Consider such terms as: taxonomy, phenotype, structural characteristics, physical characteristics
    Avoid such terms as: anatomy (which implies structural rather than superficial makeup of the organism), biology (much too broad)

    For more reading:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physiology
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxonomy
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenotype

    For reference, animal pages from Wikipedia proper:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephant ("Physical characteristics")
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger ("Physical characteristics, taxonomy and evolution")
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark ("Physical characteristics"; see also its section titled "Physiology" to see what such a section must needs entail to warrant such a title as this)

    Garak: Constable Odo and Captain Sisko expressed a similar concern, but really, Doctor, there was no harm done.
    Bashir: They broke seven of your transverse ribs and fractured your clavicle.
    Garak: Ah, but I got off several cutting remarks which no doubt did serious damage to their egos.
    Bashir: Garak, this isn't funny.
    Garak: I'm serious, Doctor! Thanks to your ministrations I'm almost completely healed, but the damage I did to them will last a lifetime.

    i think the round up tables in type effectiveness portion messes up when it comes to steel types that as you now, have lots of resistances,,,,

    take look at this one:
    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Magnezone_(Pok%C3%A9mon)

    Possible, but it'd be difficult, considering things.

    Requesting that the addon Global Usage be taken into use in Bulbagarden Archives. Would make working there a lot easier, since it'd save the need of always opening a separate Bulbapedia and Bulbanews tab to see if the file is use in another wiki.

    Not really.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.

    That couldn't have ended well.

    Sounds useful. We'll see what we can do as soon as possible, though there might be some oddities with our five-server setup.

    Yes really.

    There's no good way to do the scalar properly, especially when all the sprites are the same size. See?

    New guy here.

    I think something should be done on Scyther's Pokemon page in bulbapedia and his move "False Swipe". You see, it's listed as a move he learns at 13, and it's not listed as being learnable by TM/HM or by breeding. But you see, just today, I hatched a Scyther that came with False Swipe at level 1. I breeded my caught Scyther with a Ditto to get this one.

    I'll breed them together again to see if it happens again.
