Pokémon that sound like other Pokémon when on low HP
« on: August 14, 2011, 09:44:02 am »
A few weeks ago, I received a private message on Youtube.

"Well, this afternoon I was playing Pokémon Green for laughs and when we sent out a heavily wounded Metapod (you know, with that stupid annoying alarm beep), his cry was Gastly's.,."

I promised them I'd make a video about them all, so for now I'll list some of the Pokémon that sound similar to other Pokémon when on low HP in Red/Blue, and probably use the same base cry. (work in progress)

Kadabra ~ Gastly
Metapod ~ Gastly
Vulpix ~ Graveler
Mew ~ Staryu/Starmie
Parasect ~ Staryu/Starmie
Magneton ~ Gastly
Hello. I actually identify as gender questioning, but nowadays feel more firmly that I identify as female. My sex is male but I like to express myself as female.  She/her pronouns, please.


Thank you Myri for my avatar! Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Beyond all philosophies are the things that go best for you; what makes you feel content. It's important to always follow your heart, so unless you feel perfectly happy about it don't just follow something because it is popular, fits a style or is conventional. Sometimes you may reach a point you're not sure who you are, but as things settle I'm convinced things do work out in time.

Interesting. I never noticed that, since I know like just ~10 cries. ._.
Hug me~!

I have a strange urge to post every single project I start in 'Pokémon glitch discussion'. Thanks for moving it, and sorry about that.

Interesting. I never noticed that, since I know like just ~10 cries. ._.

It's actually relatively rare to come across nowadays I guess. This kind of thing doesn't happen in Generation III and onwards. It only tends to happen (a close resemblance) to a few Pokémon, and unless I'm mistaken it's pretty much Generation I/(Generation II?) exclusive, because Pokémon don't have altered pitch for a select few base cries in later generations (except through sound manipulation in the Pokédex in Generation IV). Although I think they have length in later generations? I recall a trivia that in one game all Pokémon cries were speeded up 1.5x.

Anyway, this kind of thing is because of Pokémon sharing the same base cries with other Pokémon. A few Pokémon you're probably more likely to hear on low HP than others though, like when training Metapod (sounds almost the same as Gastly on low HP) for Butterfree to beat Brock.

New list:

I may be missing some things, albeit those like Mew ~ Staryu, Krabby ~ Mr. Mime and Vulpix ~ Graveler only partly sounded like them as compared to more closer similarities like Raticate ~ Rattata.

Mew ~ Staryu
Kadabra ~ Gastly
Paras ~ Staryu
Parasect ~ Staryu
Starmie ~ Staryu
Raticate ~ Rattata
Magneton ~ Gastly
Krabby ~ Mr. Mime
Vulpix ~ Graveler
Ninetales ~ Graveler
Geodude ~ Graveler
Metapod ~ Gastly
Mewtwo ~ Staryu
Krabby ~ Mr. Mime
Kingler ~ Mr. Mime
Alakazam ~ Gastly
Magnemite ~ Gastly

Technically speaking, this shouldn't even happen at all.  At most, the cries should just be missing their channel 1 makeup due to beeping taking up channel one, why the cries change so drastically when the beeping occurs has to be due to poor programming.  Abra's cry is mostly made up of the PCM/Noise channel so it really shouldn't change at all.  Same goes for Kadabra.
