Words describing it fail. Pages relating it shrivel. Tales recounting it end.

The Rayquaza article is great, but I think you should mention Extremespeed as well. Only a few Pokemon learn that move and it would give it the ability to appear out of seemingly nowhere to suddenly pulverise something, which is surely something it'd do a lot...

Guess Who...?
... I'm not sure if there would even be enough resources to support thousands of failed attempts at lunar missions. Plus if Rayquaza managed to rack up a confirmed death toll in the millions as a directly provable result of those missions, I'm fairly certain that no sane political entity would endorse a space program...

Barring the massive numbers, and the fact that people are seriously mulling evacuating a major city over shutting down a friggin' spaceport (though that's mostly me being picky), it seems like it's been well-written.

I shrunk the numbers down. No need to be snarky about it. Being snarky makes it less likely for me to actually take your advice.
This is gonna take a while.

... I apologize if that came off as snarky, that really wasn't my intention. I just found the scales mentioned in the article to be rather off...

That is because I am amused by large numbers and rarely put them into perspective.

The chatroom log index post (page 214) has been somewhat more updated. It'll unfortunately take me 'till the weekend before I can keep going on as I have to tend to some family stuff and prioritize.

Also hope you're feeling well, Jane.

Your army sucks.
Try not to go too willy nilly with numbers, Jane. Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale is a trope we're trying to avert after all.

Calamiy Jane Has No Sense of Scale either. Or math for that matter. It's my toughest subject.

Hmm...

As you can imagine, Rayquaza’s territorial nature caused many difficulties for the Air and Space Travel Institute. One of the most important rules to be followed is “don’t fly too high, ” the only rule that is enforced by Rayquaza itself. Dozens of the attempts to put humankind on the moon, or even in space, were also thwarted by Rayquaza and caused dozens of deaths and destruction of rockets. (try using "several" instead. The numbers are a bit high. Though the first use of "dozens" is grammatically incorrect.)

Currently, Rayquaza’s territorial instincts have been kicked into overdrive after man’s successful foray into space, onto the moon, and back again. The only reason this was possible was because of Rayquaza’s absence during the time of launching, and Rayquaza has yet to forgive them. Mossdeep city has thus far gotten the most Rayquaza sightings in over a hundred years.(Now, why exactly is Rayquaza angered when it wasn't there at the time of the launch?)

Just trying out something here.

Rayquaza's mad because... Well, if your neighbor snuck into your house, ate your cupcakes, and then left when you got home, wouldn't you be mad?

Yeah... Napalm seems to be having troubles too, though. May need to sort some things out.
Do you highlight everything looking for secret messages?
You complete me.
Wait a second, how can Rayquaza in Johto Myth (which shouldn't even exist since he's not a "crossover pokemon" like the Regis) be a forbear of bad weather, when his Signature ability is to stop Weather aberrations.

And I'm still not seeing the difference between my Yongosen article and his Saffron one.

Because Rayquaza's signature ability only cancels weather effects in the vicinity. Imagine it's mid-June of a bad year and a Rayquaza comes visit Missouri or whatever. For the day he stays in, the weather looks all fine and dandy. All people are all in awe that oh, wow Rayquaza has come visiting Missouri of all things. But as soon as He leaves, BAM — the thirty six tornadoes, two heat waves, three stormclouds and the mist across the state border that were being abnormally held out by his presence can, at once, come in. Have a Nice Death indeed.

The Saffron history doesn't really make any demands on other articles, is the thing.

Is anybody planning on making an entry on Venipede already? If not, please allow me to take that honor.
I'm doing that one, but if you want to discuss it, throw some ideas in the pot* , or whatever else, please do.

Ok here is some things I thought oF venipede and its evolutions:

Venipede , the larvae of the line, sporting deadly poison on their fangs at the ready to kill prey, hints that the offspring is pretty much independent from birth and need no actual care from the parents once they have come out from their eggs. And most probably, a lot of them spawn at once, so most probably they wil be considered pests.

I really wonder how Whirlpede eats. Could it be an oddly shaped coccoon that is able to roll about? The energy it uses to ram at attackers must come from somewhere, but so I read, they keep still most of the time in the wild. Maybe their energy is limited and those Whirlpede who have little to no energies left will be easy prey,as they will be too tired to fight back. This could also explain why Scolipede is rarely seen in the wild.

And, Am I the only one who thinks Scolipede would make an awesome mount? Considering almost every Pokémon in existance can be domesticated, It's not hard to imagine a fierce group of warriors in the past who raised and used Scolipede as cavalry. As Scolipede is bulky, fast and most importantly, ferocious. (Screw your Ursaring cavalry)

As the history of Unova is pretty vague at the moment, maybe this tribe, after conquering most of Unova with their army of angry centipedes, attempted to conquer the city where Relic Castle now stands but were completely wiped out by an army of Sigilyphs, who then proceeded to wipe them out from history as well.

Looking forward for the gratuitiously violent "Hazards" section of this particular Pokémon.

Well for one thing, Scolipede is the biggest Bug type Pokemon, bigger than Yanmega, who previously owned that title. Also, they are fast.
