Trivia Removal
::What part of the game code denotes them as counterparts? This is the stupidest fucking thing. --[[User:Transfinite|Transfinite]] | [[User talk: Transfinite|Talk]] 14:25, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
:::He was just using game code as a comparable example. No need to go overboard. I also don't see why similarities can't be something included. Maybe not state that they are counterparts, since we don't have any proof of it, but I have no problem with listing the similarities.

::::They shouldn't be included because they are stupid, pointless, and subjective. The goal should be to reduce the amount of trivia, not to increase it. Otherwise, if the similarities between Ekans and Sandshrew are noted, would this be okay?:
:::::::''Wingull shares its catch rate of 190 with Chinchou, another dual-typed Water Pokémon (although it is part Electric, not Flying). Chinchou and Wingull are also similar in that they evolve two levels apart, Chinchou evolving at level 27 and Wingull at level 25. Further, they both have 50/50 gender ratios, and their Almia Browser numbers are 10 apart (Wingull's is 78 and Chinchou's is 88). It should also be noted that their Dream World abilities, Rain Dish and Water Absorb, both recover HP when in the presence of water, though the exact mechanisms are different.''
::::Seriously, I am going to go add that ''right now'' if you think these bogus so-called "similarities" warrant being mentioned. --[[User:Transfinite|Transfinite]] | [[User talk: Transfinite|Talk]] 14:40, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
