View Full Version : Pokemon that have the same 'pkm cry'



Quzo
20th February 2008, 4:09 PM
I was looking though my PC once and I found 3 pairs of pokemon that appear to have the same 'pokemon cry'. These pairs are:

Slobro and Growlithe
Machop and Omaynite
Pinser and Chansey

And Hitmonchans cry is very similer to Lickitung

If you don't belive me check you're in game pokedex or PC; also excuse me if i'm wrong but I don't think I am. There maybe more pairs but I reckon they'll only be from the 1st gen.

We're on the 4th gen of pkm and nintendo hasn't spotted these errors?!...!!!!

I don't think Pinsir and Chansey are the same.

Caterpie and Goldeen.
Rhyhorn and Charizard.
Slowbro and Machamp.

The list goes on...


I don't think Pinsir and Chansey are the same.

You thought correctly.

When will nintendo fix these glitches? There soooooo ovbious.

They won't fix them, because they're not glitches.

According to bulbapedia:

"Despite there being 151 Pokémon in Generation I, there are only 37 completely different cries in the game. However, different Pokémon's cries are either pitched up, down, faster, slower, or disable one of the sound channels, making it harder to recognize. For example, Charmander and Charmeleon's cries are the same, but an instruction in the game tells the pitch for Charmeleon to be lower than Charmander's. Despite this, some Pokémon share the exact same cry with no sound tweaking, such as Charizard and Rhyhorn. In Generation II, there were 30 new cries introduced, applying to the same rules as before."

Never knew that. T'is true that you learn something new everyday.

Anyways, everybody is used to the crys now. It would be weird if Ryhorns was changed after all these years. Besides, if they didn't sort it out in the 2nd gen, then theres not much hope that they will now.

Paras, probably.

Porygon2 and Girafarig have always sounded a little similar to me, somehow.

Intresting. Should have figured as much though.

On the subject, I believe that Torchick and Bonsley sound the same. I'll have to double check, but I know there was something that sounded like Torchick.

Listen to a dittos cry and a poliwags cry.they are in fact the same!It works on my pokemon pearl.

Diglett and Doduo sound very similar, but slightly different.
Caterpie and Goldeen sound exactly the same.
Dewgong and Lickitung sound similar.
Chansey and Pidgeot sound similar.

How come It seems so wierd that so many pokemon have the same cry. R/B/Y where full of glitches like the Mew glitch and M' glitch etc. These pokemon where in these games.

porygon and victreebel sound the same, but porygon sounds more simple. parasect sounds like mewtwo.

also, drowzee, hypno, exeggcutor and jynx all share the same type of cry but jynx lasts the longest.

the rby eeveelutions have the same type of cry, i think.

zubat, golbat and crobat don't exactly have the same cry but it sounds a bit musical if you play them in a row. hehe i'm wierd.

also, pokemon having the same/similar cry is not a glitch. as far as i'm concerned, the developers may have wanted the cries to be similar. and i dont want them to change, they sound too cool with their 1st gen ways.

Quzo
21st February 2008, 11:41 AM
You may have a point there. They could've made them the same/similer on purpose.

21st February 2008, 11:47 AM
It's not easy for nintendo to make 493 different cries, not to mention making a suitable voice for each pokemon.

Though some of the pokemon may share the same cries, the cries actually fits in right for both pokemon, so I don't see a problem there.

Yonowaru in Chaos
21st February 2008, 11:58 AM
It is actually quite easy (albeit a little painstaking) to create 493 different cries on the DS games now that the sound quality sounds much better than before. But then, it is pretty hard to create 151 pokemon cries using only what sounds the Game Boy could produce and make them sound completely different.

I'm not saying that they should completely redo all the first 251 pokemon whose cries sound too old. In fact, I hate the fact that many game reviewers these days criticise the fact that diamond and pearl still uses the old game boy cries. They don't know anything!

21st February 2008, 12:54 PM
Scizor, Girafarig & Heracross all is same just a different tone.

Yonowaru in Chaos

they don't sound the same at all. girafarig is similar with porygon2 but the three you said don't sound the same at all.

Mario-Sonic
21st February 2008, 1:46 PM
Pidgeotto and Pidgeot have similar cries, but at different pitches. They're also comparable to Chansey's cry.

Charizard and Rhyhorn seem to have completely identical cries. Tauros and Crobat have similar cries, but at different pitch levels.

Machop's and Omanyte's cries also sound alike, but Omanyte's has a slightly higher pitch.

Quzo
21st February 2008, 5:10 PM
A couple days ago I didn't think there where that many pokemon with very similer crys but people have been making all sorts of claims, its crazy. I'm suprised by the amount of similarites. Some seem to be the same cry but with just a change in pitch.

Note: Practicly all claims for pokemon with similer crys come from 1st gen.

21st February 2008, 5:27 PM
Aerodactyl & Vileplume's cry sounds same to me.

And also, Glaceon's cry sounds like the mix of Uxie, Mesprit & Azlef's cries (or maybe just two of them). I dunno if I'm the only one who noticed this. O.o

Luxray_Masta_211
21st February 2008, 8:25 PM
Rhyhorn and Charizard.
Machop and Omanyte.
Ditto and Poliwag.
Kadabra and Alakazam.
Vileplume and Aerodactyl.
Pidgeot and Chansey (just by a little).
Glaceon and Azelf (or Mesprit or Uxie).

Has anyone noticed that all the Pokémon with the same cry are in the 1st gen, save Glaceon and Azelf?

I think it's a bit cheap to make them exactly the same. I mean, the Charmander-Charmeleon thing works, but otherwise, no.

You're right. It shows that they couldn't be bothered to give every pkm in 1st gen a unique pkm cry.

chuboy
22nd February 2008, 6:31 AM
Maybe when they chose not to, they didn't think that ten years later people would be complaining about it. For goodness' sake! What does it matter? It's just a tiny 8-bit sound wave that contributes no meaningful thing to the gameplay.

Since at the time Pokemon had not taken off, I suppose they didn't really think it necessary to waste funds on composing 151 different unique sounds (you try it).

Quzo
22nd February 2008, 6:42 AM
Yeah I guess. Pokemon could've ended like digimon and then this site wouldn't even exsist. :(

22nd February 2008, 6:44 AM
I've noticed this for a while. What bulbapedia says makes sense on account of how inexperienced Game Freak used to be in developing video games, though they could have let Missingno and the Mew glitch through to make it better, as there's a Pokedex entry for Missingno in Ruby/Sapphire.

Another one, perhaps? How about Chimchar and Mespirit/Azelf/Uxie?

Minsingno pokedex entry in R/S? Is it that bad egg thing?

I own a few bad eggs on my sappire but the won't hatch even with cheating and I can't release them.

The Missingno I'm talking about is shaped like an empty Pokedex entry in R/S. Still #000 and has a brief part about Missingno being 'studied', from what I remember. And even if you do get the bad eggs to hatch, they'll freeze your game because they're essentially a punishment for using cheating devices...

Anyway, I digress. Shouldn't we make a list of all the similar sounding Pogeys?

Parasect? That's what I was thinking...

Kiruria
22nd February 2008, 11:00 AM
Other similarities:

Ditto/Poliwag/Jigglypuff
Poliwhirl/Wigglytuff
Metapod/Abra (Metapod is slightly higher-pitched, but...)
Kadabra/Alakazam (It's really hard to tell these apart...)
Jolteon/Flareon (Flareon's is Jolteon's, sped up a little bit)
Zapdos's cry sounds like Shellder's, with the pitch turned way up.
Raikou/Manectric (Manectric's is a little longer, but...)

Vycksta
22nd February 2008, 6:20 PM
Empoleon and Luxray. If you listen very closely they do follow the same "cry pattern", just in different pitches.

Quzo
23rd February 2008, 10:21 AM
Hmm maybe. I should try that.

Yonowaru in Chaos
23rd February 2008, 10:24 AM
so why not make a list at the start of the thread?

Quzo
24th February 2008, 11:26 AM
Thats nice an idea but I knew there would be lots of debate so if I tryed to do a complete list of pkm then there would more arguing about things I missed out and stuff I guess.

{(•)___(•)}
24th February 2008, 7:35 PM
Mewtwo, Mew, Paararsect, and Starmie all sound similar.

Dratiini, Dragonair, and Dragonite are the same but at different pitches.

Caterpie, Butterfree, and goldeen

kelvSYC
24th February 2008, 7:42 PM
Personally, Spearow and Espeon sound similar.

But this thing won't be resolved until they do something drastic like use the anime voices in G5 instead of cries.

Dark SpOOn Bender
25th February 2008, 2:09 PM
jynx & hypno

Actually, I never heard a similarity between them until now. Hypno really just sounds like a sped up version of jynx, lol.


Truthfully, these things have annoyed me since the years of r/b/y. I never really cared if a pokemon's cry sounded similar to a previous evolution, like charmeleon sounds similar to charmander, since they are related, but when the pokemon sounds incredibly similar to another species' cry that always struck me as laziness. I mean, I know there were more limitations to the games back then, but still...

Jerre
25th February 2008, 4:23 PM
Porygon2 sounds the same like Girafarig. Only that Porygon2's cry is more digital. Hence it's species: "Virtual Pokémon"

Thats what I thought but apprently nintento could've done it on purpose. Considering all the other glitches in R/B/Y I think its unlikley that they did it on purpose. I think it was a glitch; I reckon nintendo thought it was too late to change a few sounds by the time they noticed (something along those lines).

28th February 2008, 3:40 PM
Every Pokemon's cry is in some way different... Some are just taken from the same noise then changed in lenghth and frequency.

woot21
3rd March 2008, 5:22 AM
I've noticed this a lot in my Blue version recently. It's even better when the alert sound for your Pokemon having low HP is sounding, because then it just throws all the rules out the window, and a lot of them sound exactly the same. I think the wailing somehow cancels out certain triggers for the cries.

...Sorry if I'm a little late to be the first to correct you.

1. No. Growlithe's is higher pitched.
2. No. Omanyte's is a different pattern of notes.
3. No. Pinsir's is lower pitched.

I'm positive someone's said this already...but Rhyhorn and Charizard.
