Except for the fabled Missingno?
Made some progress on Charmander now, but I'm calling it a night.
@Silent: A little nitpicking on the Nido entry- the last paragraph in "Dealing with Royal Evolutions" looks a bit... overgeneralized. Seems a bit of a stretch to imply that even the best-trained Nidoking with a Mild nature would turn homicidal on getting second place.
Hmm, would everyone who wrote a starter article be willing to put them up for collab review and revision sometime in the future after the Kanto starters are done with (you guys would still be the editmasters, seeing as you actually started them and everything...)?

I think for the Slakoth entry, have Trainer Note suggesting that one gets their Vigoroth neutered. It won't stop their activity, but it will stop them trying to rape the other Pokémon in a fight.
Hey! It's their right as the winner.
Why do you want to execute me? Are you kidding? I can't even tell...

^He's one of those people who takes Pokemon as Serious Business instead of wanting to have fun like a normal person .
Nobody is ever credited with glitches, so there is no internet celeb whatever.
Also without the glitches the Pokemon Nightmare Fuel page would be only 10 percent of what it is now.
The only reason that I did Missingno was because it's an important and fun part of the Gen I mythos.

If anyone wants to try and find Glitch City, then all you do is this:
Go to the safari zone, pay money to get in, then save the game. Switch off (Or reset if an emulator) then exit. If done right, nothing will be said until you pass the man, who will ask you if you want to take the Safari zone challenge. Choose no, and then exit.
Now you have 500 steps to get yourself wherever you want (As long as it's not in a city) and when you run out, you'll end up back at the Safari Zone. Then you exit, and you're in Glitch City.
Bring a Pokemon with fly. Seriously.
@Captain Napalm: I guess I could do that.
I guess Totodile could use some buffing...okay, then.
Speaking about buffing starters... How's that Charmander article, Tangent?
I hope I didn't fail chemistry forever. I'll update the Regirock entry with the new lore too.
Regice is a bipedal, vaguely humanoid, golem-creature made of what appears to be light-blue ice. Its main body composed of a wide rectangular prism tapering off into a pyramid shape at the top of its head. Similar structures extend out of the Pokemon's back and make up its arms, including its rudimentary "fingers". At its base are two cone-shaped "feet", these feet are actually immobile and Regice moves by levitating itself 4 mm off the ground. Upon further study of Regice's body reveals that the "ice" is actually an incredibly complex crystalline compound. That compound was thought to be impossible to synthesize and would be forever held in the realm of theoretical chemistry. The properties of the compound, dubbed Regicite after the Pokemon itself, exhibited many bizarre properties such as being magnetic and being an extremely good conductor of heat and electricity, despite obstinately being a non-metal. Stranger still is its ability to react with water to regenerate its crystal structure. Researchers are baffled at how exactly such large amounts of Regicite were formed, much less why a Pokemon is made out of it.
Next to its unique body structure, the most noticeable thing about Regice is the array of yellow dots arranged in a cross-shape on its "face". This mark is known throughout the world as a symbol of wisdom and enlightenment, often called "The Symbol of the Second Giant" in both Hoenn and Sinnoh. Most famously, on the coat of arms of The University of Hoenn.
Regice, and its brethren Registeel and Regirock, appear several times in legends in Sinnoh and Hoenn mythology. In the former, it is said that Arceus created the world and the heavens from its seat at the top of Mt. Coronet. He sent his emissary, Regigigas, to tame the newly created world. The King of Giants did so by pulling the ground itself into place with great vines, creating continents themselves. As it walked into the barren world, the plants that inhabited its body spread and brought life to wherever it went. Regigigas then took the raw elements of the new world and forged the giants, its children, out of them in its image. It took water from the ferocious oceans and froze it to form an undying avatar of Frost. Underestimating its own power, Regigigas accidentally froze everything around it. Creating the ancient glaciers of Snowpoint.
Hoenn mythology, however, makes no mention of Arceus or Regigigas. Instead they claim that the Regis were created entirely by human hands. A popular story says that they were created as weapons by ancient alchemists and smiths for the legendary King Hoenn. He used the Regis to conquer all of the known world under his banner. After Hoenn was overthrown, the Regis were sealed away as the people grew to fear the destruction they caused under Hoenn's reign.
Another story has it that Regice was created by a Sorcerer that summoned an Ice Spirit from the World of Frost and tied it to a block of Nevermeltice. The credibility of this story is in question as this is also the mythical origin of Froslass as well.
Regice is one of the few Legendary Pokemon with confirmed multiple specimens. At least 3 sets of Regis have been discovered, and many archeologists believe that there are more out there, 2 in Hoenn and 1 in Sinnoh. The first set was discovered by archeologist and Battle Frontier Brain Brandon ***. The second set was discovered by a certain Pokemon trainer along with mysterious deep-sea ruin located west of Pacifidlog Town. The third set was discovered by a Sinnohan trainer approximately 1 year after the second set was discovered. So far, every Regi specimen has been found inside small, near-identical room located inside otherwise unremarkable ruin sites. The second Hoenn set was unlocked, supposedly, by bringing a Wailord and a Relicanth to the aforementioned undersea ruins. The Sinnoh set was unlocked with the presence of Regigigas itself. Frontier Brain Brandon has refused to comment on how his set was unlocked. Much debate has been going on in the scientific community as to what this means.
Regice does not "eat" in the conventional sense. But it can react with water to bolster its Regicite body.
As its name indicates, Regice has control of ice based abilities rivaling those of Articuno. It also has rudimentary control over electricity, magnetism, Aura, and psychic abilities. Experiments conducted on Regice (with League authorization and Trainer's permission of course) have shown that despite its typing, it is remarkably resistant to heat. It was exposed to Flamethrower attacks from 4 Charizards at once with only minimal damage. This seems to only apply to special attacks as its brittle Regicite form has been shown to be vunerable high-powered Fighting, Rock, and Steel physical attacks. Including one instance of a Blaziken severely damaging it with a Blaze Kick.
During one notable experiment, Regice was dipped into molten steel and came out mostly in tact. Stranger still is when it was placed into an empty room, within two hours the temperature of the room came close to -244 degrees Celcius. Yet it was safe for humans and Pokemon to enter. In fact, Regice has remained only cool to the touch at all times despite all thermometers reading temperatures of well below zero. Leading to the theory that Regice does not simply have Ice based abilities, but total control over heat.
Moreover, Regice's unique body structure and machine-like mind renders it immune to disabling attacks such as Leer, Sand Attack, Growl, Screech, Tail Whip, Intimidate, Cotton Spore, etc.
Like its brethren, Regice usually stands motionless towards all stimuli unless given a specific task by its trainer. The exception is when it is attacked directly, in which case it activates a so-called "defensive-matrix" and proceeds to eliminate apparent threats with frightening amounts of force and efficiency. Unlike Regirock and Registeel, Regice prefers to stay at ranged and summoning freezing winds, snow, and ice at its opponents. If those prove ineffective, it switches to electric, psychic, or Aura based attacks. As a last resort it can detonate itself, sending glass-like shards of Regicite in all directions. Reforming itself slowly afterward.
If one is foolish enough to engage Regice, it imperative to send in highly trained Fighting or Fire Pokemon and with powerful physical attacks. As Regice is nigh-invulnerable to special attacks.
Like Regirock, Regice has very machine like behavior. However, it seems to a little bit more intelligent than its stony brethren. When ordered to move forward, it did so until it hit a wall. Where it stopped and waited for further orders. It also appears to be able to understand body language as it has respond to pointing and other hand gestures.

^ Looking pretty good, very detailed too. So is Regicite some sort of metalloid-based compound or something? Your descriptions of its properties seem very similar...

Seeing as how this is an equivalent of Japan, it might be better to refer to the character as Emperor Hoenn...
edited 25th Sep '10 2:58:53 PM by CrowT.Robot
^ Nah, Hoenn's been merged with the rest of Poke-Japan, so there wouldn't be a dedicated Emperor of Hoenn...
Still, kings are more of a Western title.
^ Meh, "King" (or "王") still shows up as a title in East Asian societies on a fairly frequent basis. Especially in times of disunity...
I chose "King" because it sounded more fitting for a mythical ruler than "Emperor".
@Napalm: Not exactly, its supposed to be a non-metal compound with an impossible atomic structure. Green Rocks essentially.
I guess the in-game item "Nevermeltice" could be small chunks of Regicite.
Has anyone done the other teams like Team Aqua and Team Galactic? I found Team Magma and Team Rocket.
So... How's that Charmander buff going?

Not working on the Oddish line yet, have work to do..
@Tangent: downplaying Nidoking? Nevaaaa!! I'll check the entry, rewords and other stuff.
Also taking advantage of being called on it to let you all know that for a while, the wiki entry will be being updated, whereas the forum one will only see the changes once there are enough of them.
How's that Charmander buffing by the way? Let me know when Aquacrocodilus impiger as I have some things for them.
No, I hate Crow T because he made the incredibly bad desicion of having all teams be Rocket-Splinters.
Other wise he's a pretty cool dude. :)
^ Meh, it's rolling updates, he can always axe it later. Besides, he said that it was believed that TM was a TR splinter, the officials are allowed to be wrong occasionally...
