Talk:Klink (Pokémon)


I noticed that Gear/Giaru is the the only Pokemon consisting of two seperate entities. A couple of other Pokemon have had two heads/minds before, but were always connected by some physical bond. Can we add this fact in, or do we have to see the rest of Gen. 5? - unsigned comment from Element03 (talkcontribs)

What about Exeggcute? They aren't connecting in a physical bond. --ケンジガール 00:27, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
And Magneton. And possibly Dugtrio (we don't know what's under there). And even Porygon-Z to an extent. --SnorlaxMonster 10:21, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, I mean just two. Magneton and Dugtrio are three entities, Porygon-Z is one entity with multiple seperate parts, and Exeggcute is six or seven seperate eggs. Gear/Giaru is the only two-bodied Pokemon, and by consequence the multi-bodied Pokemon with the least bodies.--Element03 00:18, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
Don't resign if you forgot, it messes up the timestamp. This piece of trivia gets too specific if you go into the fact that it's the only Pokémon comprised of two entities, when there are things with 3. I say we just leave it. --SnorlaxMonster 05:23, 26 June 2010 (UTC)


Can a mod add this:

Giaru resembles two gears, with six cogs each, interlocking. The cogs of the gears are a light grey, while the central regions are much darker. Their left eyes are a simple "X", while their right eyes are very wide with a black pupil and a white cornea. They have round green noses and small mouths that are held wide open. - unsigned comment from Constantine (talkcontribs)

Sure thing. Jello 17:24, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Umm, by the look of the art and sprites, their noses are blue...Megadog 00:51, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
The noses look kind of turquoise to me--Juzey 14:59, 11 January 2011 (UTC)


I'd like to add this to the trivia:

Giaru's ability either being Plus or Minus could suggest that it exerts a sort of magnetism, or that sending out two(or possibly three Giaru) is an advantage considering the fact that gears turning in oppposite directions combine.Pelipper 23:37, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

I think it would be best to wait until more information is known about this Pokémon. —darklordtrom 23:43, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Name Origin

I was thinking what could possibly be its name origin. If it was just a corrupted ギア gia, gear, or if it had something else behind it. Maybe, it could be something like a portmanteau of 誼 yoshimi or gi, friendly relations, and ある aru, to be with ギア gia, gear.KurowaSan 06:21, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

When it is two gears, and its name is a direct transliteration of gear, I think it's pretty safe to assume that the only origin is the word gear. Also, it makes me wonder why this page isn't at Gear (Pokémon), like Wargle. --SnorlaxMonster 06:42, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
ウォーグル Uōguru is an obvious portmanteau of the english words (written in japanese) ウォー , war, and イーグル īguru, eagle, becoming Wargle.

Now, for ギアル Giaru, this doesn't really happen. It may be just a corruption of ギア Gia, gear, but "giaru" isn't "gear" in Japanese.KurowaSan 07:00, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Form and forme (フォーム and フォルム) use slightly different ways of transliteration, to distinguish them. It's a very slight corruption, and I'm betting that the official romanisation is "Gear". It's not like this type of tiny corruption hasn't happened before. --SnorlaxMonster 07:19, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Besides, the u is a silent u. It's there because that's how the Japanese write it. - unsigned comment from Mikkim (talkcontribs)


Okay since we're apparently redirecting 'Gear (Pokémon)' to this article, should the same also be done for 'Gear' alone? Except typing in 'Gear' into the search bar brings up the Gear item in List of key items in Pokémon Colosseum. Meaning a disambiguation page may also have to be made... That is, if we are going along the lines that Giaru is supposed to be 'Gear'... Rai Marshall 07:35, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Most people are calling it Gear, and since we have a redirect, we should probably do create the page. Although, since Bulbapedia's referring to it as Giaru, we could word the page as something like, "You may have looking for Giaru (Pokémon), which is also known as Gear." --Element03 00:40, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I've actually already disambigged it. Many other sites are simply translating it as Gear anyway, so people are likely to search for it using that, so we need to disambig it. --SnorlaxMonster 08:14, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

No one else get reminded of Magnemite?

Just saying, they remind me of each other. They're both based off of machinery it seems. Anyone else agree? Miscs 18:23, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

That is an opinion, thus not going to be included in the article. --SnorlaxMonster 14:02, 22 December 2010 (UTC)


Should we add in trivia that Klink is the name of the main antoganist in the old TV show, Hogan's Heroes? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 03:53, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

No. I don't see how it has anything to do with Klink other than its name. --SnorlaxMonster 04:03, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

one of Klink's eyes is an x. in hogan's heroes, that same eye is covered by a monicle. and he wears gray --"FiMbUlWiNtEr2O|2" 19:48, 1 January 2011 (UTC)


The article reads: "Their left eyes are a simple "X", while their right eyes are very wide with a black pupil and a white cornea."

Are we speaking about left and right from their perspective? If not, then it's the other way around... Bapplesauce 03:50, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Whenever referring to a body part, you always are talking about it from their perspective. This is not just a Bulbapedia thing, it is a general thing. --SnorlaxMonster 03:56, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Klink in it's evolution

Should we add that a Klink is in every evolution of itself? --Funicode 21:41, 11 July 2011 (UTC)


Is it noteworthy enough to add to the trivia section that Klink's evolutionary line is the only three-stage evolutionary line of the Steel type that doesn't have a secondary type? Svenskig (talk) 14:05, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

That's a very specific group, so I'd say no. Litwick96 15:21, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
