That pic got horribly distorted. Help? Anyone? Evkl 20:32, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

How's that? Use "Frame" instead of "Thumb". - Ferret 20:40, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

May just got Munchlax. Someone might want to mention that in her bio. The ep was called "May Deliciously Captures Munchlax". Screenshots are at SPP that confirm it.LedianX 19:51, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Wasn't the policy that Pokémon are only to be linked to once per article unless absolutely necessary? Munchlax is already listed at the beginning of the article. On top of that, there's a double standard when Torchic is only linked once but Munchlax is twice. Argy

You forget that lists are excepted from the rule since they should be convenient to use. - 刘 (劉) 振霖

Y'know, if there's one thing about May I don't get, it's this: When she first saw a Treecko in AG001, she creeped out. While in AG007, she didn't show the slightest bit of being uncomfortable when around a whole bunch of them.

She also hated Pokémon in AG001, while she doesn't by AG007. It's a plot hole. (Which is actually a shame since they could have shown her actually changing through the contest storyline.) FabuVinny 08:48, 20 November 2005 (CST)

When did May wear a bikini?HK-47


I don't think May's lineup should be updated with Blaziken until we see it evolve in the show.

It already has evolved on the show. --FabuVinny 15:51, 5 February 2007 (UTC)


Shouldn't Swablu count as a Pokémon that she temporarily owned? I mean we count Manaphy which she never caught so why not Swablu? Truthfully I think they should both count as Pokémon that she had befriended. --Zeta 02:06, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

No, we don't count Manaphy. Some idiot keeps on putting that in there. If we counted every wild Pokemon someone made pals with, everyone would have like 60 Pokemon listed. --Zeta 02:00, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Oh, and that idiot would be Tiago Luke. If we added every Pokemon a character ever befriended, Brock would have Sharpedo, Stantler, Ninetales and Max would have Ralts, Poochyena, Poliwag, and Jirachi and everything would just get incredibly silly. --Zeta 02:06, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Actually, that Ninetales was named and unique, so it could definitely warrant an article... but yeah, not identified as Brock's. --Pie ~ 02:13, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, someone's added Swablu now. Why though, if it was never really hers? - Cassius335 18:44, 26 January 2008 (UTC)


I don't think May is the only character to have a rival of the oppisite gender. I mean Brock has Suzie. And what about Ash and Casey? - Kenji-girl

I agree in some ways, but Drew is her main rival and Casey is like a secondary rival to Ash, not like Gary. Tesh 22:42, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
Put simply, Casey and Suzie aren't rivals in the way Gary/Paul/Drew/Harley/Zoey are. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:54, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Beautifly and Skitty?

In The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing (or something like that), didn't May get Beautifly and Skitty back? In which case, why are they listed on her bio as "at home"? They're with May now, right? --

Glitch Pokémon and Official Pokémon

There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!


14:16, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
Your guess is just about as good as anyone else's. May hasn't been seen since Home is Where the Start Is and as far as I know, she said nothing about keeping her Skitty and Beautifly with her.--Pokencyclopedia 15:26, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


Is she really appearing in DP076?Because that would be cool i hope Max is there too and Misty lol007025Cool Pikachu!!!492471

Look, the Episode summary on Pokeani may have said a reappearance (pun not intended), but that could have been an april fools joke. We need to wait until AT LEAST after the Wallace episode airs (Since there will be a preview for the 76th episode after that.) to be ABSOLUTELY certain that she will reappear in that episode (which even THAT isn't 100% guaranteed since the writers seem to like messing with their fans minds [the Buizel capture episode preview comes to mind.].).

Also, even IF it is confirmed that she is going to make an appearance in that episode (which would be extremely random even FOR pokemon to have her reappear when she is supposed to be doing Contests in Johto. I mean, at least Misty's reappearance made sense, since she doesn't HAVE to travel, plus, the gym wasn't even her goal, but with May shirking off her goal in life for almost no reason whatsoever, thats extremely random, no matter HOW you mention it.), It doesn't mean that Max would reappear, especially since he is supposed to be waiting until he becomes old enough to train Pokemon (which may never happen considering how the creators said Ash's age is ten years old even AFTER 6 regions have passed [yes, six, I count the Orange Islands and the Battle frontier as Regions].), and he would have to travel around Hoenn first BEFORE going to Sinnoh (then again, Paul DID travel through other regions first and THEN did pokemon training in his home region last.).


Except, you know, April Fool's Day jokes usually take place on April Fool's Day. And Wallace is probably a world-famous Coordinator in the anime. Nothing wrong with traveling to the northern half of the country for that. The Convention could also have been an invitational. You never know, maybe the committee took care of May's traveling issues. (And I fail to see how doing a Contest is a different region constitutes "shirking one's goal in life." Is her life's calling limited to contests in Johto or something?)--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 01:25, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Also, causing this much commotion, and leading up to a fake, could bring a negative effect to the website. 486PokeManiac102492 02:03, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Naw its on Bulbanews now I think they check their sources. So May is coming back I wonder if she will get a new traveling outfit like Misty did when she showed up. So the plot I read has a dual contest with Dawn as a teammate against Ash and Brock. The guys really should stand no chance despite the fact that both have competed in contests. The 2 girls have competed in many more...wait wasn't May traveling with Drew and Harley or did she decide to travel seperately I don't really remember the BF very much. Bobtherandomguy 02:14, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Who knows this may be true or a prank i hope it's true cause i miss the old characters and seeing them again and mabye May is there cause Wallace invite her and stuff for a comp.who knows......... 007025Cool Pikachu!!!492471
It's quite possible she will wear her Emerald outfit. Just without the green486PokeManiac102492 05:34, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah i hope so but do u think Max is going to appear i think not if this Episode is not a Prank 007025Cool Pikachu!!!492471
Remember, May went off to travel Johto alone486PokeManiac102492 05:42, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
True...but the plot of this episode does not make any sence because she went to Johto with Drew and Harley but who knows...007025Cool Pikachu!!!492471
Wallace is holding a very special contest and May decides to attend. Just wait and watch. Good night486PokeManiac102492 05:50, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
kk night I'm going off too007025Cool Pikachu!!!492471
I don't think it's a special contest.I think it's an unofficial contest only.And it makes no sense that May leave Johto for an unofficial contest.And May is not special.Why does Wallace need to invite her.Why not invite a GF winner like Johanna?-Billy4b2004 08:31, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
We don't know why or we would know. Amazing concept huh. <(sarcasm) 448Crystal Lucario448 11:41, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

While it IS true that Afd jokes usually take place on April fools day, that doesn't mean that it's exclusively on that day. Look at Electronic Gaming Monthly: Those Guys air their April Fools Day Jokes on FEBRUARY, for goodness sakes!

Also, in regards to what I mean to "Shirking off her goal in life" what I mean is that she left in the middle of her run in Johto just to attend a contest in Sinnoh which she could have easily waited for after she gets done with Johto. I mean, did Ash leave for another region when he was in the middle of his own region just because of something that was of Interest for him? No he did not (and before anyone mentions the Whirl Islands, they don't count since they are part of Johto, and plus, it was something Misty wanted to do), Gary and Paul didn't do that either, so if they aren't doing it when they were doing it in THEIR journeys, then May shouldn't either.

And, BTW, that's only IF it is true. the only way we can get OFFICIAL confirmation for now is through the episode previews at the very least, so we have a long wait until then. Maybe if the episode summary didn't appear until AFTER this years April Fools Day, I would be much more believing (and accepting of it even though I feel it is the writers biggest Mistake since i have negative emotions of her.)


A magazine is a different manner. They're not time-sensitive the way a website can be.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 01:46, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

I forget

Although it says Top 4, for the Hoenn Grand Festival, was May in the top 4 or top 8? PokeManiac102 00:40, 28 March 2008 (UTC)


Ok, I really think that the part about May being the second main character other than Ash to get her own movie should be removed from the Trivia section.

I mean, let me be frank with you, May didn't HAVE a lead role in a movie, especially the Manaphy movie, since, Guess what, Ash got the limelight in the end of that movie.

In order for her to have a lead role in that movie, it should be completely dedicated to herself (in other words, EVERY SINGLE THING in that movie, especially it's ending, is solely focused on her.). In other words, the only one who actually GOT a lead role in a movie was Max.

I mean, if the second movie wasn't counted as Misty's film DESPITE her playing a very BIG role in that movie, how is the ninth movie any different?

Maybe I'm not seeing something, but I think we should remove the "May's the second pokemon character OTHER than ash to get a lead role in a movie" thing from the trivia Section. Weedle Mchairybug 20:38, 31 March 2008 (UTC)Weedle McHairybug

Weedle, we went through this with Dawn already. I swear you just posted this to start a fight.
No, "lead role" does not mean "May does absolutely everything." She's a main character, not a Mary Sue. - Cassius335 09:17, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
No, my intent wasn't to start a fight. If it was, I would have called people names. I did actually think she was undeserving of the title. I mean, I should just say that, unlike the Dawn thing, not once did I say that none of the others shouldn't appear at all.
And, BTW, if lead role doesn't mean "she has to do everything", then why is it that Max is the one who actually DOES everything in the Jirachi Movie? I mean, even the ending/climax was completely devoted to him.
See what I mean? I mean, Misty also had a very huge role in "The Power of One" (big enough of a role to have her arguably being a co-star/lead in that movie), and many people still thought she wasn't a lead of that movie.
Likewise, May had a huge role in "Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea", and the climax had Ash getting the limelight, and she was still considered the lead role of the movie despite being the same as Misty in that Movie in terms of roles.
This is the reason why I feel that she was really undeserving of the title. If you don't want it deleted, fine, suit yourself, I won't stop you, but just know that this is my rationale.
Weedle Mchairybug 10:30, 1 April 2008 (UTC)Weedle McHairybug
Why does your username have your name in thrice? Once will do.
Anyway, you're going to have to do better than "because Ash stole the ending". May and Manaphy's relationship was still one of the driving forces of the plot, more so than...actually, what DID Misty have to do with the plot for Power Of One? I seem to remember that being more of an Ash movie. - Cassius335 12:03, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
CPR. TTEchidna 14:12, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
As TTEchidna said, CPR. However, she also braved stormy seas chasing after Ash when Ash's Pikachu was going for Fire Island, she helped Ash get the confidence to go to Ice Island, and she was the [First] one who figured out that the legend was meaning that Ash is the chosen one (in the dub, at least, but I'm pretty certain that a similar thing was done in the original version.), so, in that movie at least, she did quite a lot, if you ask me. It's no different than when May was nursing that Manaphy.
As for why I have my username in thrice, it's because I tried to sign it in four tildes WITH my user name (since that's how they told me how to sign my username.
Weedle Mchairybug 22:13, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok, Misty did a bit, but Power of One was still more of an Ash movie (Given he was the one who was the Chosen One and collected the Orbs of Fire, Ice and Lightning). May was still a heck of a lot more central to the plot of Prince of the Sea than Misty was in Power Of One - Cassius335 22:48, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


A new summary implies that her Squirtle evolved since the Summary says she will enter the Wallace Contest with a Wartortle. Or we going to leave it out until the episode (DP077) airs? --Dman dustin 19:28, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

We don't know if it is already evolved or will evolve during the first couple of episodes so leave it for now. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 19:50, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
Funny... I would've expected news of Eevee first. TTEchidna 21:15, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
I wouldn't have, and I hate you Fabu-Vinny, who ever made you administrator???PokeManiac102 21:18, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
Uh, why do you hate me? --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 21:37, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that's stupid to say. I protected it. TTEchidna 21:53, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
No, I hate Fabu-Vinny for all that Befriended stuffPokeManiac102 22:13, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
So not only is it a personal attack, it is one that has nothing to with this discussion. Please try to be a little more civilised in future. It makes for much more productive discussion. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 22:25, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
It's also a lame reason. Swablu's barely on-par with a character like Samurai. TTEchidna 22:27, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh I don't care about Swablu, I only care about manaphy, riolu, latias, lucario, hippopotas, THE MORE IMPORTANT ONES!PokeManiac102 22:52, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Oh, that's alright then. *rolls eyes* Please do calm down, Pokemaniac. Sniping isn't going to help matters. - Cassius335 14:23, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Manaphy, Latias, and Lucario: movie PotDs. Riolu and Hippopotas: Can we say Jigglypuff? TTEchidna 17:24, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Manaphy deserves some sort of recognition in the "May's Pokemon" section: May is/was it's mother, after all. It's basically Togepi, only with more character and less screen-time. - Cassius335 19:41, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

D/P May

Should I put this picture on the page?File:1.jpg User:CoolPikachu!

AG pic

Since the page is in protect mode and I thusly can't do it myself, could one of the mods please either 1) put a [=
=] command in between the Character' and Pokemon sections or 2) shrink the May's AG outfit picture a bit? The page looks slightly untidy at the moment.


We should add about Glaceon to the article because Eevee has evolved as of DP076.

...have you not been paying attention whatsoever? :/ Tina 18:52, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

But seems to have confirmed that the Glaceon is May's. Why not add it? I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 19:22, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

The episode hasn't aired yet. Let's just wait. After all, the Pokémon news doesn't revolve around Serebii.. ;>_> Who knows, it might not be May's (no matter what the slim chance..) Tina 19:25, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
May was seen commanding something immediately after Glaceon was seen. Though that's definitely evidence in an episode, this was a preview. I could make a preview, too, for DP074's US airing, showing Ash commanding a Raichu. Lemme prove it by doing so... in a bit. TTEchidna 21:34, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
By the by, this trick would work best if you didn't understand a word of Japanese. If you can pick up on a few keywords, though, you won't fall for it. TTEchidna 21:40, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
There. Fake preview done. I know it sucks. TTEchidna 22:53, 18 April 2008 (UTC)


Shouldn't May's AG picture go in the template rather than her new outfit? That's how everyone else's is. Porygon-Z 21:38, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Ash's new outfit is in his... TTEchidna 21:49, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
And Gary's is in his... Brock and Misty are in their FRLG art... TTEchidna 21:55, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok let me add some info I forgot. I mean that the rest have the characters whole body. And in the newest possible outfit in which a full body picture is available. Porygon-Z 21:56, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Since May was only a main character for Advanced Generation, her outfit from that time probably should take precedence. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 22:01, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

New Trivia

  • Since she competed in the Wallace Cup in DP78, May is the only Coordinator so far who has competed in every Main Game Series Region.

Anyone who could phrase that better, be my guest. I'm just listing it here since I can't even edit the page right now...--PikamasterADV 23:32, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

DP078 has not happened yet, so no, she is not the only coordinator so far who has competed in every Main Game Series Region•Pokemaniac102 23:33, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
When she competes we will add. TTEchidna 23:39, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Were did May get an Omitrix?Cerberus 23:57, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Having researched and discovered that that an Omitrix is the watch from Ben 10, I assume you're talking about PokéGear. She probably got it in Johto. But like I said, I don't watch the anime, so I have no idea what you're talking about. --Martonimos((Talk))
Wha? blah, anyway, NOTHING GOES ON THAT PAGE TILL THE EPISODE AIRS•Pokemaniac102 00:09, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Well..Duh because we could ALL be wrong.. CoolPikachu! 00:10, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
No, not that, because
  1. It hasn't even happened yet.
  2. TTEchidna said so.

Pokemaniac102 00:18, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Huh now you lost me a lot!CoolPikachu!

00:24, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Sure he makes sense. It's Bulbapedia policy that nothing in the Anime happens until it actually happens, to prevent speculation from running rampant. If a preview shows a snorlax and eveyone goes "OMG ITS MAYZ LOL", and then it isn't May's, we'd have a bunch of edits to revert and we'd look sort of stupid. That's why the policy exists. A shame nobody seems to pay attention to it... --Martonimos((Talk)) 00:26, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Ohh that makes more senseCoolPikachu! 00:28, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
I pay attention! :) and Do they always need to spell it out for you Cool Pikachu?•Pokemaniac102 00:30, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
.......CoolPikachu! 00:35, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Easy there, guys. Nobody wants a flame war. We're all friends here.
Anyway... can anyone figure out for sure if it really is a PokéGear that Cerberus was talking about? Obviously, we wouldn't be able to mention it until the episode actually airs, but once we can, it might be important. Now that I think of it, it could have just as easily been a Pokétch... I guess we'll have to wait to find out. --Martonimos((Talk)) 00:36, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes we are ok I'll check online for anything if it's a PokéGear and trueCoolPikachu! 00:38, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Don't forget! Could be Ash's! TTEchidna 00:46, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Yup btw is this a contest or a tag-battle type thing?User:CoolPikachu!01:11, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
From what I can decipher of Cerberus's comments, he was just talking about May's wrist bands that are part of her Emerald uniform. Evidently, no PokéGear. Blast. --Martonimos((Talk)) 04:05, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
I KNEW IT! So they were wrist bands :) I was right-CoolPikachu!

Johto Ribbons

I saw today's new episode and saw May with 3 ribbons are those for Johto???CoolPikachu!

Yep. TTEchidna 01:39, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Should those be added on her page?Or no because we don't what cities she got them from so it shouldn't be longCoolPikachu!
That doesn't matter. We can just say she won 3 Johto ribbons. Jmath 10:04, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes, we can. However, it would be better if we could identify those ribbons... --ニョロトノ666 20:21, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, but till any info is given on which cities the ribbons belong to, we can only say she won them. Jmath 20:36, 25 April 2008 (UTC)


Aaand we're back on protect mode. Thank god for that; Kuki was driving me up the wall. What worries me more is that the article seems to have dissapeared from my watchlist. Is this a new feature? - Cassius335 18:55, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

And Pikablu is already arranging to lift the protection, revert it back 2 my edit, and then put it bak under protection (2 avoid gun-jumpers)!--KukiTalk 19:00, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I never said any such thing. Please don't make false claims.
Besides, sysops can still edit the articles directly, which meant if I WERE to revert to Kuki's edit, I could do it without lifting the protection. --Shiningpikablu252 19:04, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Could someone fix the line that says she appears from DP076 through DP080? Dp080 has been confirmed to be the Yanma Capture Operation, not the Wallace Cup Finals vs. Yanmega. ~RR~ 02:15, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Munchlax missing

I'm not familiar with Bulbapedia's formats, but Munchlax has mysteriously vanished from may's list of Pokemon. Anybody know how to add it back in? Matkin22 20:34, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
