Correct me if i'm wrong but i can remember a picture of the generation 2 mom.--Pokéboy93 15:03, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

The Cleaner Mom

Isn't there a artwork for a mom in HeartGold, or is it like Prof. Mom in Generation 4?--The Bulb's Master 20:54, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

So far, we don't know if there's new artwork for a Mom in HeartGold and SoulSilver. She'll probably get updated art in the HeartGold and SoulSilver guidebook when it comes out along with the games in the US since she's the only character other than the 8 Johto Gym Leaders that hasn't gotten her art updated yet to match Ken Sugimori's current style. --Dialgafan1 22:54, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry

I come from england, well guess the rest. But could we change this page's name to mother. To be fair. Lunick v sonela 11:48, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

I agree i am from england and we don't say mom we say mum or mother. Roryrules123 2:13, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

You can't say mum though. Lunick v sonela 15:50, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

I'm from New Zealand, and while that name sounds worse than nails on a blackboard (chalkboard?), it's her in-game name. Remember Generation II? "Sent some to Mom!"? —darklordtrom 20:40, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
I know that. Lunick v sonela 06:04, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Well that's why it's at this name. —darklordtrom 21:04, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
While old discussion is old, this is relevant. Now that HGSS is released, even though the game still says "Sent some to Mom!", in the Pokégear phone she is listed as Mother. I'm going to suggest that we move this page to 'mother', which seems to be a more logical name for the player's mother anyway. Mother is even used throughout the article regardless. --SnorlaxMonster 09:03, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Why change something that has already been decided, well it may not sound right in some peoples ears, but what does the name matter? Sorry, but it's a waist of time! asherb0y'
Well, I'm not suggesting that we only change it because it sounds different to different people, but I think that the Pokégear phone would be more reliable than that one line of ingame text after every battle (assuming you have told her to save your money). Mother is slightly less personal than mom. The article itself often opts for mother over mom (or mum) because it sounds much less awkward. Finally, mother is a slightly (notice slightly) better translation of the Japanese name. --SnorlaxMonster 10:03, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
I vote for "Mother" because that's what she's called in the PokéGear. --ZestyCactus 20:09, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
I'll say that we should call her 'Mother' based on the fact that it's how she's registered in the Pokégear. Generation II called her 'Mom' and to keep it current, we should change it to 'Mother.' KurosakisTwin 17:04, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
But didn't gen 4 also call her "Mom"? Thus, it should be kept the same because that would be the way it is in the dialog, so it is both current, and staying with the original name.


She seems to buy a lot of rare berries in HG/SS. Usually batches of 5 of the anti-super-effective berries, I find.Darien Shields 18:15, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

It's true! I got some of the Tanga Berries. --SaitoFX 06:19, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's all she buys now, the damage reducing berries. *looks at page* Holy Crap, that hasn't been updated since HGSS! You can't even decorate you bedroom in HGSS. I'll fix that now. Werdnae (talk) 06:43, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I got non-berry stuff from her, but can't remember what it was. —darklordtrom 06:55, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah. I couldn't remember whether she did or not, I haven't got a non-berry item from her in aaaaaaaaaaages. I think she must only buy them at the start, then she switches to berries after a certain point. (Thinking about it, maybe I got a Great Ball? Not sure) Werdnae (talk) 07:05, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I once got a Moon Stone from her. I think I may have also gotten a Super Potion as well, but I honestly can't remember. Mudkipchan 07:06, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I've changed it so it now says
occasionally buys decorations for the bedroom (G/S/C), or damage reducing berries (HG/SS) or items such as Super Potions.
But more information would be nice, it should probably go on the items' pages. Werdnae (talk) 07:40, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I get the randomest crap from her. 9/10 times it's Berries, but she's also bought me two Focus Sashes, some evolution stones... --ZestyCactus 13:45, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Silk Scarf and Moon Stone are the most exciting ones I remember, but I've also got Great Balls and Super Potions. Oh, and berries. —darklordtrom 10:48, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
