    Well, how do fire pokemon breathe fire? Whatever it is that enables them to produce fire, Slowbro/king has it too.

    If you look at Archen, it's red beak looks like its made of rock. After it evolves, I assume the red parts are still made of rock.

    It does. Sky Drop does, as well. :/

    I don't understand how only Normal moves don't work on Ghost types, shouldn't all physical typed moves have no damage on Ghost types?

    Not exactly, Fire Punch induces flames to burn the ghost.

    Fighting-type moves don't work on Ghost-types, either.

    As for moves like Brave Bird and Dragon Claw, I honestly don't know. Maybe in generation I, making Ghost-types immune to contact moves would've made them not only overpowered, but also incredibly complex as they would have been the only type with effectiveness not determined by type.

    Moves like Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Fang, Steel Wing, and other moves that require an "imbuement" of an appendage may have that "imbued" part hit the Ghost-type, if that makes sense. For example, the actual punch of Fire Punch wouldn't hit the Ghost-type, but the fire part would?

    As for Rock Slide and Razor Leaf, I have no idea.

    Oh yea, the Elemental Punches do come with a secondary effect, along with Blaze Kick too.

    Ugh, forgot about Fighting moves. But, yea you explained everything right. That's what I was thinking.

    It's simple really, just grab it from the head and pull it out. I imagine to keep the rest of its body concealed, rocks are pulled out with it.

    But forget about Diglett; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1oCD6fpJCw

    Yeah, but even if rocks were pulled out with it, surely the rocks would be covering the body. So although you wouldn't be able to see the rest of Diglett's actual body, surely you'd be able to see its shape?

    Ghost moves have no effect on Normal either.

    DP97.jpgThis may not be enough, but look all the way to the right. How did he bring Diglett?!

    Well, normal things in the real world aren't affected by the abnormal (which includes things that don't exist in the real world, like ghosts). I'd imagine it's the same for Normal-type Pokémon as well.

    Yeah! Shouldn't the Diglett have made a hole in the floor of the building for it to pop out of, at the very least?

    Not necessarily, I imagine it would look something close to this: http://imageshack.us/a/img843/4931/diglett.png depending on the size.

    Yeah, but that'd only be if Diglett's unseen body were in the shape of what seems to be a sphere. In other words, the rocks that cover Diglett all have to actually come into contact with its body.

    If you look closely, it is on the ground. EDIT: Well, actually it's on a chair, but hey, special chairs for Diglett.

    The rocks wouldn't make a perfect outline of the body though. For all we know, the body could look like this under the rocks: http://imageshack.us/a/img534/723/diglettw.png and it's not a sphere.

    Lol, look at this picture I found: https://i.chzbgr.com/completestore/1...OzvEZaVzg2.jpg

    Diglett, why you no show body? Plus let's not forget Hone Claws with it

    Fair enough. All we know is that the unseen body has claws (Hone Claws, Slash) and is actually pretty fast (high Speed stat, Aerial Ace).

    And feet.

    Here are some reasonable pictures I found for what it may actually look like.

    or

    But one of the reasons why Diglett and Dugtrio two of my favorites is because your imagination can run wild with them: http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...14-d376pm6.png
