About Aaron's appearance in the anime

I know the dreaded Austrailian magazine has been accurate somehow, but can we still assume that it's still a possibility? It's still not officially confirmed, despite what most want to think. --Ricco 00:24, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

The magazine doesn't say "it is a possibility". The magazine says "it will happen". As long as we say it is according to the magazine - which can't be doubted at this point anyway - we should state it as it is. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 13:51, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
The way it's worded, it sounds like it's purely definite. I know the magazine has been right at this point, but what if this episode never happens? Then what? You know as well as I do that it's just as likely for it to not appear than it is to happen.
All I'm saying is that I don't want people to think we're preaching a flawed scan as pure fact. I take these episodes with a grain of salt and I hope most of you do that as well. It's more or less the wording than the thought, really. =/ --Ricco 19:32, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
does any one have a pic of the scan? i seen one once and i cant remember where =/--Davidaipom 14:04, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Wow, has that Australian magazine been right AGAIN? --Hey1031 18:53, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Yup. Still, just because it's been right and right again, doesn't make it a reputable source. It's kind of silly, but if it says anything controversial (like the appearances of Wallace and Aaron in the Anime) again, we still can't trust it officially until it's confirmed. How they get their information is beyond me. Satosuke 00:14, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Clearly, they have a source in Japan. I don't see why you're still debating this. Every point on that article has now been confirmed now. End of story. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 00:21, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I wasn't still debating it, I was stating that even though they have source in Japan ahead of everyone else, their information still can't be added if it reveals something again ahead of time until it's confirmed. They may have been right about the Wallace Cup, but they made a mistake about the placing of the Aaron episode (so actually, not every point of the article was confirmed). The magazine therefore cannot be taking as an only source confirmation of future events - it needs a second source to prove it, when it reveals information in the future.

Aaron's attacks

I'm playing Platinum and fighting against Aaron's (Second battle, level 67) Heracross and it used Megahorn against me. Several times. I read somewhere else that some trainers have a randomized 4th move. Perhaps the Elite Four fall under this as well. It also used Night Slash, Close Combat and Stone Edge. glebs 20:12, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


I just realized that Aaron looks a lot like Wally... Has any one else noticed this?- unsigned comment from ILOVETOGETIC (talkcontribs)

It's speculation, which is not allowed on articles.--Toxic ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 12:06, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Isn't this for the forums? Turtwig A Contributions Talk 12:07, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
It's also a reminder as to what is and isn't allowed in articles. :D —darklordtrom 21:19, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Former Bug Catcher and Gym Leader

Unova TV's variety show sometimes tells a tale involving a former Bug Catcher and Gym Leader in Sinnoh that quit as a Gym Leader in order to become an Elite Four. Aaron? --Johans (talk) 03:26, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Added. --Abcboy (talk) 03:43, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Platinum templates

I've been thinking: since the Elite Four teams in Platinum differ from each other only by the levels and the prize money, couldn't those templates be combined, with the differing prize money and levels seperated from each other with {{tt}}? What do you think? The same thing is used in the Unova Gym Leaders/Elite Four/Champion, too, so why not here as well? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:46, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Well? Is this an OK idea? At least I think it would work. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:20, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
The difference between adding Platinum into the same template as Diamond and Pearl and what's on the Unova pages is that on the Unova pages it's used for differences between the same games because of the modes. Tooltips really should be used sparingly, and I don't see much point in combining them together that way. Especially since some of the E4 (Flint for example) have different teams, so it's not something that could be done on all of the E4 pages. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 17:31, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Oh wait, I'm an idiot. I see what you mean. I think it would be fine to be honest. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 17:34, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for your approval! I think I'll get to it right away. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:44, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
I wasn't really giving approval. I have no clue how other staff feels about it being done. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 17:45, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Oh... Well, I already did it. Let's see if it's okay. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:27, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Um, I kind of randomly came across this suggestion, but in any case, here's my input... I like how the new formatting condenses the page adequately instead of needlessly repeating the template on the same page if only the numbers for Levels and Prize Money differ (and I imagine that multiple instances of a template on one page takes up more loading time/strain compared to the usage of the Tooltips?). Although admittedly the "tooltip combination" formatting thing can't be used on all pages, particular where the Pokémon teams differ (like the numerous Pokémon Emerald Version Gym Leader rematch teams), it seems useful for an article such as this one. Fenyx4 (talk) 20:15, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Whilst you should've waited for more staff input, I won't revert you. I agree that repeating the same teams that is only different in levels and prize money is pointless. So I also approve of combining the platinum templates together.--ForceFire 02:30, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

not really the same names...

Two members of the Sinnoh Elite Four, Aaron and Lucian, share their names with the main characters of Konami's Lunar Knights for the DS.

Well, Lunar Knight's Aaron is called "Django" in the japanese version, not Ryou, and their Lucian is called "Sabata", not "Goyō". --Kaiko Mikkusu (talk) 17:06, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
