Hey, I was wondering if we could decide of a color for Iris' infobox here? I have a few ideas in mind:

These are just a couple suggestions (the top right hand one is the one that's on the page now and the top centered one is the one I had originally had on the page.) What do you guys think? Any other suggestions? We have lots of time to decide, but we should try to get an agreement on a color design. Personally, I love the top left hand one and the top centered one. I kind of dislike the top right hand one (the colors don't match well in my opinion). The bottom two I'm kinda mutual about. Thoughts?--Skystar 14:17, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Maybe a black and white one, considering it is based on the black and white games? Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 14:21, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Trivia

Should it be mentioned that she's the first female companion since Misty to not be based on one of the games' female player characters? --Goldenpelt 02:28, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

sounds true

and we might as well add that she's the only anime only female travelling companion too

unless that statement of her being a game character along with Dento is true... Ataro 02:41, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Dento, I'd believe, but we haven't seen any Sugimori artwork of Iris, have we? --Goldenpelt 02:57, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

"Iris"

Other than the direct assumption that "アイリス" is the English word "Iris", "Airisu" is a girl's name that exists in Japanese. It may not be common but 愛麗子, 愛梨子, and 愛里酢 are all "Airisu", much like Kasumi, Haruka, and Hikari are all girls' names in Japan. Is there a source that names her as "Iris" rather than "Airisu"? -Ryulong 20:22, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

This is still Western name "Iris" but with fail Kanji assigned to it. There are dozen of Kanji spellings for name "Maria", but it doesn't make it a traditional Japanese name. Also, I don't get what's with these "sources" lately. Really, what the hell? What kind of "source" would you expect to confirm a romanization of a character? Also, if you want to know why her name can't be derived from Japanese, then just look at her closely. She really doesn't look like a typical Japanese character. That'd be your "source". --Maxim 11:54, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Move to Iris (anime)

Pattern. Plus, I have a sinking feeling that she's not anime-only... TTEchidna 07:54, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Not yet. —darklordtrom 08:14, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Wait and see. First, there's no pattern. We've got Ash Ketchum not Ash Ketchum (anime). The reasons for Brock and Misty being separate pages are practical - their full pages were too long. Even if Iris isn't anime-only, that's still no reason to split her. We don't have to split every character to game, anime and manga self. Also, wait and see. I've got a hunch that she is anime-only and even if she does show up in the games, it'll be just a cameo, unworthy of separate article. But I'm not an admin, my hunches don't matter. --Maxim 08:25, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Sinking feeling? Nobody in their right mind would think Iris isn't an anime counterpart of the female player character from Generation V. Trust me, there's no less than a 110% chance that "Iris" is a game-default name. I really don't see how this baloney about Iris being original came about, nobody in their right mind would think that...--Shiningpikablu252 17:07, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Um, excuse me? She looks nothing like the player character of Black and White. Plus, her default name is confirmed and we have an article of her. Besides, I'm sure that most people don't think what you said.--でんのう Zえんし 17:16, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
What happened to waiting for stuff to be confirmed before we move pages around? D: —darklordtrom 07:34, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Pokabu

I think Iris owns a Pokabu. See the trailer. Caciulacdlac 05:56, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
