<blockquote>''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.''</blockquote>
::::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)
:::::There's no need to be an ass. There are similarities between Sandshrew and Ekans, particularly regarding where they could be obtained in the first two generations. Sandshrew was exclusive to Blue on certain routes, whereas Ekans could only be found in Red on the same routes. Ditto for Gold and Silver, respectively, except now in Gold you could buy an Ekans at the Game Corner, and Sandshrew was offered for the same price in Silver. Yes, there are many differences between Sanshrew and Ekans, and in turn Sandslash and Arbok, and they aren't counterparts to the degree that, say, Zangoose and Seviper are. But unlike your over-the-top-ridiculous comparison between Chinchou and Wingull, it's made fairly obvious that Sandshrew and Ekans filled identical roles in opposing games, at least for the first two generations. And I think that's the kind of thing that makes good trivia, as opposed to silly things like sprite or stat trivia. --[[User:AndyPKMN|Andy<sup>P</sup><sub>K</sub><sup>M</sup><sub>N</sub>]] [[User talk:AndyPKMN|(talk)]] 15:04, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
