  • This is one of the most well-written artciles I have seen (if not the most). It's detailed, accurate and fits all the criteria for a featured article candidate. Ater I read it I was blown away, its now my favourite article and I wholeheartedly believe it deserves to be a featured article. Wikid 00:03, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

  • This article was written largely by a fanboy/girl, and contains a huge amount of information that I believe to be extraneous. I don't think a list of every single time Staryu appears from its Poké Ball should qualify as an FA. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 00:48, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I don't understand why it even is a candidate. My opinion about this is simple; NO! MathijsP 06:40, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Yea I don't get it was even nominated--CoolPikachu! 06:44, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  • No. It may be very complete, but it's not interesting or attention grabbing. I got bored after the first paragraph ~RR~ 03:06, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Other comments

To the people who said they don't get why it was nominated, I did explain in the talk page. Plus, I have noticed something here. This is the only article that has more object votes than support. Something else I notice is that this article is the only that doesn't cover an extremely broad subject like the others. It seems to me that the rest of you are only supporting articles that have a lot of writing (and therefore huge) and are objecting ones that are more specialized, such as this. If this is the case I find it insurmountably injust as a featured article should not be judged on quantity but rather quality, as stated by the criteria. Although this article is still quite big anyways. Finally, I hardly think that any of the informaton in the article is irrelevant. The article requires informtion about Staryu's history and that's what has been detailed. Its not a list of everytime Staryu has appeared from its pokeball as a) Its not in lst format and b) Staryu has been sent out A LOT more times than the article specifies (for lack of a better verb) so if it was the list would be much bigger so don't make it out to be.Wikid 20:46, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Can I say something? Some of you have said that this article was just created by a fanboy/girl and the details are over exaggerated. Well couldn't we say the same thing for Brock's page? Most of it was written by a Brock fan that has a lot of information that has been stretched, yet a lot of people have been nominating it for a featured article. Why is this any different? The person was being descriptive with this article just like with Brock's. What? Just cause it's not written by an admin makes it not worthy to be nominated? As for my choice, I'm indifferent about it right now. I'm just letting you know that we have an over descripted article like this one yet it is being praised while this one is being looked down upon. --ケンジガール 06:35, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
