References and Similarities

It seems that there are quite a few things in this article that aren't really references, but rather simple similarities. For example:

  • Much like the Viridian Gym, the Hearthome Gym isn't accessible when the player first arrives in its home city.
  • Veilstone City is many ways like Celadon City of Kanto, both of which are the largest city in their region. Both have a Game Corner (Rocket Game Corner in Celadon and Veilstone Game Corner in Veilstone), a prize exchange shop to accompany the Game Corner, and a Department Store (Celadon Dept. in Celadon and Veilstone Dept. in Veilstone). The villainous team of the region has two headquarters in the city: Team Rocket has Rocket Game Corner and Rocket Hideout and Team Galactic has Galactic Veilstone Building and Galactic Warehouse.

Those really don't seem like references to me. Should they really be included in the article?--Dual 17:54, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Why? Those are clear references/similaritites to different generations. --Theryguy512 18:16, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Those aren't references, they're just similarities. There's a very distinct difference between the two, and seeing as how this article is about cross-generational references, pointless similarities should be left out. --Dual 22:15, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Similarities in my opinion belong on the trivia of the newer version, ie Veilstone's trivia references its similarity to Celadon. TTEchidnaFire echy 23:18, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
So does that mean I should go ahead and remove those points from the article? (Or did you already go ahead with it?)--Dual 22:26, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
If they're still in there, go for it. TTEchidnaFire echy 03:13, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Shorts?

Does anyone think the whole "shorts" thing with Youngsters counts as a reference?
