I think those images are pretty good.--lilkaykaygal 07:52, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Given that the "ja" means "snake" (acording to Pokebeach), I think it is safe to assume that Tsutaaja is based on a snake. Mind putting that in the page? --Deuxhero 00:54, 13 May 2010 (UTC)


The same post that told us these names on 2ch, said Tsutaaja is the くさへびポケモン (Grass Snake Pokémon). Tsuta (蔦) means ivy and Ja is another reading for hebi (蛇), which means snake.--KurowaSan 01:02, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

How many snakes do you know have feet? I doubt that is a correct translation. MaverickNate 01:34, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
The translation is pretty accurate, the source may be not. But the source has nailed the description of the protagonists, the region name, the fact that the other starters were a fire pig and a sea otter before the scans leaked... And I have seen freaky snakes with legs.. XD Mutations nonetheless. And that would be "Grass Snake" as in a snake of/from grass, not as in the real world species "Grass Snake".--KurowaSan 01:41, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
There actually is a type of snake with legs, albeit really small ones. It's native to Australia, if I remember right. I know they have one at the Cairns Zoo, anyway. Reign 02:13, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opheodrys_aestivus this doesn't have feet, but it looks like tsutaaja Kanjo 12:38, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxybelis_fulgidus I would sooner assume Tsutaaja is based off of a Vine Snake. In fact, I'd say it's fairly definite. Flint 20:50, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

images

Uhh, I have the three guys images saved, to upload, if a mod can do that... [1][2][3] Megadog 05:12, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

As do I, but I Beilieve the Admin isn't allowing editing for those Images . . . not that any are even there. --Lordrogersmith6485 07:58, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I've seen them on Legendary Pokémon fan site. Not sure if it is okay to use them. Kevzo8 13:27, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

height

the height and weight of it is 0.6 m and 8.1 kg - unsigned comment from Pokemonemerfan1954 (talkcontribs)

Got a source that isn't Serebii? —darklordtrom 10:57, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Acceptable Speculation?

Is it alright to add in details that have been present for all of the Pokemon starters so far; such as EXP At Level 100, EXP Yield, and Gender Ratio? After four generations of Pokemon games having them identical, it's highly unlikely to be different this time. Plasma 11:36, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Passing off unsourced speculation as fact is bad. —darklordtrom 11:45, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
You say that, but the starters all have National Dex numbers (494, etc.). Where does that information come from? I know it's an educated guess, but at the moment it's still just a guess. The same goes for the types - do we know they're all pure types? ~ Serial Colour 13:46, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
We know at least one of their types. So we put that. TTEchidna 18:28, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Name romanization

Why are we romanizing the name as "Tsutaaja"? Manual of style/Romanization states that macrons should be used instead of doubling letters, unless the trademarked romanization begs to differ. And there is no trademarked romanization (I scoured the trademark database last night) - we don't even have official confirmation that these are the starters' names.

I mean, I personally don't like macrons, but shouldn't we romanize it as "Tsutāja," as per the MoS? 梅子 17:45, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Most people would link to the redirect anyway... TTEchidna 17:57, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Shouldn't we just call it Tsutaja? When Pocchama was first revealed it was just romanized as Pochama on this site. T a r o m o n 21:47, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
It's not going to stick this way anyway, I'd just leave it. Unless we rename the page Smugleaf. - MK (t/c) 03:22, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
