Serebii's Pokemon of the Day: Weezing

#1GalladetheGreatPosted 4/1/2012 8:27:14 AM
Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the first generation. They crawl out of the ocean using their arms. They will attack prey on shore and immediately drag it into the ocean. With no extra effects in place, it has no weaknesses. So here it is, the sixty-fifth entry, Weezing.


Weezing on April Fool's day? I guess even Serebii knows Weezing is a joke.

Weezing isn't the joke, only Serebii's movesets.

It's possible someone just screwed up and put in the description for Eelektross.

I think Serebii is against April Fools or something
That writeup seems pretty genuine

...He should have done something like Smogon did on Kakuna

I only do April Fools stuff that plays on people assuming it was fake. Like the mass reveal of English names for DP I did on April 1st 2007.

I don't believe in misleading people with false information portrayed as true, no matter how absurd it may be.

Weezing is an acceptable Pokémon and is somewhat of a fan favourite. Its entry being today is just coincidence

That accidental inclusion of the description for Eelektross was only up for about 10 minutes.

For those of you who don't know, Serebii never does any pranks on his site. The forums, however, are another matter altogether. One year he erased avatars and signatures, citing server issues. Another year he pretended to cave in, giving us custom avatars (a privilege that to this day Serebii forums lack), but it turned out that the only allowed custom avatars were 1x1 pixels. I tried to upload a red pixel as my avatar anyway, only I ran into issues regarding the avatar's size or something like that.

This year, supposedly name changes are back on the forums, but I'm on the fence as to whether or not it's actually a prank. Even if it's not, doesn't affect me, as I'm not changing my name. Someone managed to get their user name changed to "April Fools 2012 trolololololololololololololololololololol.", though.

The custom avatar wasn't a prank. It was a genuine gift that everyone hated so was removed :p

The name thing isn't a prank
