Scents
 
A while ago, you removed information from species pages like Dugtrio [[Special:Diff/2746518|here]]. I disagree, and instead agree with SnorlaxMonster [[Special:Diff/2603946|who added it]], and would ask you to reconsider your edits and/or participate in the discussion going on [[Talk:Unown (Pokémon)#New forms section|here]]. Thank you. [[User:Nescientist|Nescientist]] ([[User talk:Nescientist|talk]]) 18:50, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
 
== Scents ==
 
Since [[Special:Diff/2310761|you added]] this line to the [[Heart Gauge]] page, I was hoping you could clarify it.
:''In the case of Scents, the Scent used further affects the amount by which the Heart Gauge decreases. The Joy Scent multiplies the appropriate value below by 1, the Excite Scent multiplies it by 2, and the Vivid Scent multiplies it by 3.''
As written, I would interpret this to mean that an event that normally provides a boost of X instead provides a boost of <code>M*X</code>, where M is the scent multiplier. However, this interpretation would mean that the Joy Scent is useless, as <code>1*X</code> would still just be <code>X</code>.
 
Therefore, I would think that instead it's trying to say that an event that would normally provide a boost of X instead provides a boost of <code>M*X + X</code> (which would just be <code>(M+1)*X</code>). Is this correct? And if so, I think it would be better to describe the multipliers as 2, 3, and 4 rather than 1, 2, and 3. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 02:58, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
:Okay, I just realized I misunderstood the page. I had assumed that Scents were multiplying other events, but instead they are events themselves. Feel free to ignore this message. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 03:02, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
