Sorry but isn't Iceland grassy, and Greenland icy??? --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 22:04, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Both I guess. Tina δ 22:09, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, I guess that Iceland is warmer than any other place that has a similar latitude. However, I still think Arcticuno fits for representing Iceland since it is near the Arctic Circle.--Pokencyclopedia 22:35, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Ireland

File:Mew Harp.JPG
It's not a Pokémon, but.......

Um, though this may be stupid, I saw that Ireland's Coat of Arms has a harp on it. Though it's not an animal, how about the Mew Harp Picture??? Though, I do think that Shaymin idea is very clever, since leprechauns are from Ireland, and they are green and sharp. Nice Idea, Pokencyclopedia! --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 22:11, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't even thinking about leprechauns when I picked Shaymin...--Pokencyclopedia 22:35, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
I dunno. Anime screenshots aren't really preferred for userboxes... and lol what do you mean by 'Nice idea, Tina'? XD; I don't remember doing anything, lol. Tina δ 22:15, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Oh, sorry! I thought that it was you who made that edit. In that case, thank you, Pokencyclopedia! --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 22:16, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Canada

A Unicorn!?!? Why not a moose (Stantler)! Canada is more famous for moose than unicorns!!! --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 00:41, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

But the Canadian coat of arms has a Unicorn on it.--Pokencyclopedia 00:57, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Yea, but most people don't know the flag. I live in the U.S., I don't know the flag, and when I think of Canada, I think of moose. --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 01:01, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
I said the Coat of Arms not the flag. But, if you want Stantler, go right ahead and change it.--Pokencyclopedia 12:14, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Okay, well, I changed it to Stantler. --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 14:51, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

North & South Korea

What are we going to do with these countries? One idea that I had was going for symbols to represent Korea being divided between Communism and Capitalism, but the problem with that would be coming up with a Pokémon that can represent capitalism (we already have Grumpig for {{User Communist}}). At the moment, I picked Laturn to represent North Korea because the North Korea Coat of Arms has a hydroelectric plant on it. The South Korean Coat of arms has a taeguk symbol and five stylized petals of a Hibiscus syriacus. Anyone else have any good ideas?--Pokencyclopedia 12:15, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Do we need a template for North Korea? Only one person has a computer there, his name is Kim Il-Sung and he isn't a member here. --Maxim 12:33, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Is this true? Why do only one person there owns a computer? 32pxNetto-kun Talk32px 12:36, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
You didn't get the joke, right? Kim Il-Sung is North Korea's ruler. He doesn't even allow North Koreans to have computers. They are not only too poor for that, but they're also forbidden from many things (do you think there are shops in North Korea, if yes, then you are wrong). It's because North Korea is so fuckin' totalitarian country.

Fine, I got rid of the one for North Korea. Now what Pokémon can we use to represent Korea as a whole?--Pokencyclopedia 20:41, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Actually, Kim Jong-Il is the leader, Il-Sung's still their technical leader even though he's DEAD because that country is so screwed up. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 23:35, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
Tiger is a national animal of the whole Korea. Korean Football Association uses tiger as the association crest. --Ksiom 09:09, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Poland

What does Poland have to do with Togekiss?

And why is Transylvania listed, it's not a country. It's a part of Romania. And I don't see a template for Romania. --Maxim 12:29, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, I was quite shocked with that Togekiss - I also think that Togekiss is not so appropriate; Whatsmore, Polish flag's official colors are not pure "white and red", but #E9E8E7 and #D4213D, respectively. Piotr mil 20:27, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

...And no tag for Cuba either?

Before I considered doing a tag for Cuba, I looked it up on Wikipedia and it stated that the Cuban government "represses free expression by limiting access to the Internet." How limited is this? Is Cuba's national legislature the only people that own computers?--Pokencyclopedia 22:56, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Yea, I tried thinking about one for Cuba a few days ago....and the flag and Coat of Arms have no animals on them. --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 14:44, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
How about Unown Q to represent the key on the coat of arms?--Pokencyclopedia 16:36, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Well here are the possibilities:

  1. A Key
  2. A Tree
  3. A rising sun
  4. Cherries

What one should we pick??? --70pxSpr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 20:04, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Wait... cherries= Cherubi. --File:Ani383MS.gifGroudon465File:Ani201TMS.gifTalk | DecksFile:Ani133MS.gif 21:35, 19 December, 2007 (UTC)

Egypt

I'm changing Blaziken on Egypt to Unown (hyroglyphics). --File:Ani383MS.gifGroudon465File:Ani201TMS.gifTalk | DecksFile:Ani133MS.gif 21:38, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Natu for New Zealand

I used Natu to represtent New Zealand, since it looks a little bit like a kiwi, the national icon of New Zealand. If anybody can think of a more appropriate Pokémon to represent New Zealand, feel free to change it. 3190 02:58, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, before I saw this Natu on NZ thing, I had Shellder. My Dad says that NZ has the best oysters, and so I put Shellder. But I don't want to change it.--Pokelova 20:13, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Shellder sounds good, although I think New Zealand's more famous for its exotic bird life than for its seafood. Doduo's Origin section mentions a couple of native New Zealand birds, so we could change it to that. How many other New Zealanders are on this wiki? Bardock 10:38, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Not many. 6 maybe--Pokelova 19:19, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Just thought I'd add that Natu's Origin section states that it is based off of a Parrot. Weird--Pokelova 19:25, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, Digimon have Kiwimon, so maybe one day there'll be a kiwi based Pokémon... In the mean time, shall we change to Shellder or Doduo, or just keep Natu? Bardock 11:25, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Bhutan and India

Bhutan should be represented by a Dragon-type Pokémon like Dragonite instead of the Ampharos (if there are any Takin-like Pokémon there then they should represent Bhutan). Also, India should be represented by a Tiger-like Pokémon.maria-williams 11:30, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

A Gyarados for Bhutan? or a Rayquaza? The dragon in the flag of Bhutan is not a bipedal.. An Arcanine for India, I guess. Ҝəυzø8 11:39, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Rayquaza I guess. As for Arcanine for India, isn't it more dog-like than tiger-like?--maria-williams 12:14, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
