Is this article still a stub?

I mean, it has lots of information... is it a stub or no?--PikamasterADV 00:54, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't think it is, but it's all at the discrepancy of the editor. If you think it isn't anymore, go on and take it off. Tom Temprotran 04:28, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Article name

Ok, what's up with this double redirect?

Brendan (game) →‎ Brendan →‎ Brendan (game character) 

Which should it be at? --FabuVinny 15:33, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't see a point of moving this article from Brendan to Brendan (game character)--Maxim 17:10, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Someone random user moved this, and many other articles last night. (Including, in the most bizarre move I've ever seen, moving Blue (game) to Kinkajou) It was originally just Brendan. I'm guessing that's what the article should be moved back to. --PAK Man 17:15, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
No, I think the weirdest one was the moving of Wally to Wally (character). I mean - what other Wally would there be? ><' --Pie ~ 18:11, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Brother

Just a quick question, I've played the Sapphire version, and I don't remember the rival (be it Brendan or May) ever having a brother. Is it only in the Emerald version or something? Manga-in-a-bottle

Yes. It was only in emerald in which the rival had a younger brother. Most likely a refrence of Max ~Mr.lol

Ok. Maybe I could note it in both article with one of those asterisk thingies -- what's the tag for that, please? Manga-in-a-bottle

Nevermind, got it. Manga-in-a-bottle

Brendan in Super Smash Bros. Brawl???

Please post all comments under Talk:Super Smash Bros. Brawl#Brendan??? File:Ani234MS.gifMERRY File:Ani385MS.gif CHRISTMASFile:Ani225MS.gif 01:20, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Okay... so.

Question: There's no other Brendan, but there's also no other Lucas. All of the other game protagonists are at name (game), why not Brendan too? After all, we do the autodisambig for all Pokémon, why not for all game characters? TTEchidnaFire echy 02:09, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I understand the logic behind it, but it's pointless after all. There's only one Brendan in the canon. The one who got two cameos in anime isn't notable enough to deserve separate article and be considered as a separate character. --Maxim 18:32, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
I don't like have (game) either. It's just like having "[Move Name] (move)", what's the point? Porygon-Z 18:36, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
I concur, It is USELESS TO HAVE GAME THEREC Is for Cookie 19:07, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
Because Double Team is a trainer class, too. TTEchidnaFire echy 02:59, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Yea, and Psychic is a disambig too. --Theryguy512 13:41, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's fine to have them like that, but what else in the game is called Hydro Pump? Absorb? Ice Beam? Porygon-Z 16:10, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
Because then we have an issue like Wikipedia does with gold followed by mercury, and Mercury followed by Venus. Here we have the link templates that take care of eeeeeverything. TTEchidna 00:23, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Question question...

Has he been seen in his Emerald outfit in the anime, or just his RS outfit? TTEchidna 03:58, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Only his Ruby/Sapphire outfit. Yes, even in the ninth movie, which came after Emerald's release. --Shiningpikablu252 04:05, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Likely because May was still in hers, then, I'd bet. TTEchidna 03:06, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Okay, how about now?

May appeared in her Emerald clothes. Brendan fought Lucas in the opening of GatSB as far as I've heard. Was he in the Emerald clothes? Was Lucas in the DP clothes? Who had what? And WHY HAS LEAF NOT YET APPEARED IN THE ANIME? TTEchidna 23:03, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

I heard that too and mabye Leaf have a cameo or never will appear -_---CoolPikachu! 23:07, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

I saw him in Emerald clothes in the 12th movie, but others say that he was in RS outfit...TwT PD: Yes, he was in Emerald outfit, but it's not the exactly of the game. In the Pokémon Sunday video appears the RS artwork just to confirm that he was, but you can see the Emerald outfit clearly. --Nick. 04:40, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

D/P

Do anyone knows if Brendan appears in the 11th movie with his Emerald clothes??.... Yeah, he does. --Nick. 02:04, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

About Brendan and his clothes in the 11th movie

Okay, this is beginning in controversy. I see the Emerald outfit there, and I'm not the only. Just, like in my talk page, compare this two images, one from the 7th or 9th movie, an the other from the Pokémon Sunday video of the 11th movie. Brendan in R/S clothes:

File:Brendancameo.PNG

This is obvious, the red is there.

And this:

250px

Why do anymore see the green and the orange there? I know that the R/S outfit have the sleeves longest, but just the clothes are not exactly as of the games. Lucas' outfit is more blue, but in the game is totaly black. But, I recommend that just wait for a HQ image, or the movie online, and do not comment that. --Nick. 03:39, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

White thingey...

Can someone tell me what white stuff Brendan has on his head? O.O Madch94 00:14, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

His hair. hfc2X 00:09, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
I think its a beanie/hairnet type thing Mooites 00:23, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
The manga shows that, but it's left ambiguous in the games and anime. IIMarckus 00:43, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Brendan and May

I need help, this may sound silly but it would really understand more, you see, as you very well know, in the game, Brendan and May can be chosen as a playable character, and if you choose may then, may'll have a mother while Brendan will have a father (which is Prof Birch) and that's how things can be accounted for in the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald games, if Brendan is referred to as the rival, then he'll select a stronger pokemon then May and from then on he'l keep that throughout the story.

Well in the anime, it acts the same way, in the movies, he appears as the owner of a mudkip while May is torchic's trainer, i wouldn't think this is so if Brendan never made an anime appearance but since he did, does this mean he is the son of Prof Birch?, i'm not to sure, but i think the game rules applies in the anime as well, it's like the anime itself choose May as the primary player so maybe this would be true and in the game, May and Brendan talked to each other, does May even know who Brendan is?. Gaiden 13:44, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Champion of Hoenn

In the Anime Wallace said that he is no longer the champion and Steven Stone seems to have a simular appearance to Emerald could that mean Brendan is the champion? Tsg812 9:41 PM, 24 August 2008

ExplainDCM
I'd imagine the explanation to go like so: if Wallace, in the DP saga, is not Hoenn's current acting Champion of the E4, and Steven having made no indication, way back in Dewford, that he was Champion then or ever, and also not indicating he's shooting for that position, would perhaps Brendan be Champion. My vote: no. ArcToraphim 03:14, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Sibling theory

I have noticed that Brendan and May could be siblings. This also applies to Dawn and Lucas. Whichever character the player chooses to be, they will come from the same town, have the same mother and father etc. They may be from separate families in the game, but Dawn and Lucas also have similar hair tone. This may have been obvious to some people already, but should it be mentioned in their articles? Hellkaiserryo12 21:05, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Über speculation--The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:17, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't sound plausible to me. I don't understand what you're talking about when you say that they "have the same mother and father", but are "from separate families", that sounds like a contradiction. The gender the player chooses at the start pretty much sets the canon for the player character and the alternate-gender-turned rival (which, of course, is unwieldy when writing about the games at times), so either May is Birch's daughter or Brendan is Birch's son, but never both/neither in the same save file in game canon. Same goes for Dawn and Lucas and their respective family situations. Lucentas 21:21, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

I think they mean they may be cousins. I don't think they're cousins,they don't appear to know each other,and their parents don't act family like Lovely Rose 05:08, 5 January 2009 (UTC)


(Game), In the anime.

Does anyone else see something strange in the fact that the very first section of this article, Brendan (game), is about some cameos in the anime? Either that shouldn't be in the article at all, or it should be moved to a spot underneath the game information. -Stephen93 16:34, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Most consider an anime appearance for a character to be major. Despite not being first, the anime's likely the most known part of the franchise... TTEchidna 18:43, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

His hat

Shouldn't that be un-determinded? He may just have a baggy hairdo,and 2 colors of hair. That's somewhat common in anime. Lovely Rose 05:08, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

He took it off in the manga revealing that he had black hair underneath. Though... it is just in the manga that was shown in. --ケンジガール 05:10, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Yea,I know that. I should have made it more clear,I meant the game Brendan. Lovely Rose 18:38, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Well we have no proof that it is his hair in the games so we have to go by what's said in the manga. Though the fact that one of Pikachu's alternate costumes in SSBB is just the headband and not the white part raises some questions. --ケンジガール 11:41, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Or we could argue that there is no proof it anywhere but the manga. There are significant differences between the manga and other forms of continuity, and we shouldn’t make assumptions that one thing is true everywhere else. IIMarckus 00:29, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
