Starter Pokémon

"The identity of this Pokémon is never mentioned"

In Black 2/White 2, if you defeat him in the Champion League of the PWT and talk to him afterwards, he reveals that his first Pokémon (that later died) was a Larvesta that had evolved into a Volcarona. Considering how later on, it reveals what his starter Pokémon was, wouldn't it make sense to edit that line out?

Bug type specialist?

It's been bugging me (no pun intended) for a while, but Adeku's team consists of three Bug type Pokemon, while slightly resembling one of the Pokemon he owns himself (Urugamoth). As a point of comparison, Steven Stone of Hoenn owns three Steel types during his reign as Champion in Ruby/Sapphire and is classified by the site as a Steel-type specialist. What do you guys think? Should Adeku be classified as a Bug-type specialist? Or retain the 'Various' typing he has presently? --Chicobo329 06:51, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Steven's classified as Steel because the Trainer's Eye classifies him as Steel. He also uses Pokémon which can be described as -similar- to Steel. Adeku's a little all over the place. I think he should be retained as Various unless something in-game says otherwise. —darklordtrom 07:07, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon are this high in level?

I've thought that this is interesting how Adeku's Pokémon are another 20 levels above the Elite Four. This will likely inevitably mean that the Elite Four will require extra training. The training wouldn't be terribly difficult, but I don't know if this is the actual team that Adeku comes at you with in the first battle. It could be the team for any kind of rematch after the game =, but I'm wondering if this is accurate.-[Pokemaniac72]

Well to clarify, you can battle Adeku only after your second challenge against the Elite Four, as N will prevent you from challenging him the first time. So his Pokémon's levels match up with the Elite Four's rematch Pokémon. ~ solaris 23:15, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Clothes with common feature.

There seem to be some common features in Yamabushi. [1] yamabushi-33.3.jpg Sawamular101 02:02, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Poncho seems also to have the common feature. [2]Sawamular101 07:00, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Englisgh Name is Alder.

I noticed that it has remained unedited even after the english names were anounced

Epzaos 01:36, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

No because if you read the green banner above it says unoffical names will not be added. Thanks. --Pokemaster97 01:49, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Proof of Alder

[3] There you go. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 21:36, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Moved accordingly. I don't have time to update the article though. . . Werdnae (talk) 21:48, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Does Alder talk about the word of Japan by "Localize version"?

Alder「"I've really been looking forward to deciding who's the strongest Pokémon Trainer in the Unova region! Kiai!" 」

Kiai(気合) is Japanese word.

Typical "Localize version" deletes the element of Japan. Is it my misunderstanding? Sawamular101 21:43, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

The quotes section says that it was kept. It's not the first time; many characters based largely on Japanese culture like Black Belts and Sages don't avoid making the same references to said culture. --AndyPKMN (talk) 01:07, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Martial arts related terms and wording aren't an unfamiliar subject to the English franchise, given that Candice was all about getting one's "kiai" on, and Greta used "yosh/osh" in the English dub as well. And it never fully deletes every element, likely on purpose. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 02:12, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation. Sawamular101 04:16, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Pokémon League Plaza Statue

Does anyone notice about the statue on the plaza of the Pokémon League? It really looked a lot like Sugimori's art. With that pose and that something he's stepping on. --PKMNChamp 03:17, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Dakim, Admin from Pokemon Colosseum

Alder resembles him a lot, to me. The hair and Poke Ball necklace particularly. Possible inspiration?Blitzamirin 13:00, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Maybe... maybe but for now it is best to avoid putting down speculation. They do look similar though. Except Alder fights for common good while Dakim did the opposite all the way to the end. Frozen Fennec
I don't like speculating either, but it strikes me odd. Being in the same franchise, and each other could be considered opposites (good vs. evil). Nevermind anyway.Blitzamirin 13:15, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Volcarona

Colour scheme/Hair on a Volcarona? Notable?AquaMaster 13:19, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Someone has tried to put it before and it was removed. So I guess not. --ケンジガール 08:04, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Name origin

Is it possible that his name could come from the word 'Elder' as he is a wise and knowledgeable man, who guides, teaches and act as a leader (of the Pokémon League of Unova). I wanted to put it on, but... The english name origin is a little, just a little bit overfilled with possible name origins. I don't understand, why nobody has mentioned the possible 'Elder' as a possible name origin... Seems very logical. --Celebi 21 21:28, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
