This is gen III only. {16:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)}

No it's not, it just hasn't been updated for Gen IV or the anime... TTEchidna 06:53, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
The move combos are gen III only. (MathijsP 06:55, 24 May 2008 (UTC))

Performance examination

Isn't this (演技審査) Chinese? Could someone add the Japanese names of the main terms used in this article? Thank you. |) u |( e ® 13:40, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

You're technically correct, but it is also Japanese. Kanji, while used in Japanese, are just Chinese characters. Kana is used in Japanese but not Chinese though. I've added furigana to make it clearer now. --SnorlaxMonster 13:49, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, SM! Now it's only missing the Japanese name for "Appeal", but judging by the "In the anime" section, it's probably the English word in katakana. |) u |( e ® 01:43, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Spectacular Talent names

I think the Spectacular Talent names vary depending on what contest the Pokémon is participating in. For example, I used a Ralts in the Cuteness Contest and her Spectacular Talent was called Lullaby. But when I used a Metang in the Toughness Contest and it did the same Spectacular Talent, it was called Anthem. The difference between Lullaby and Anthem was that Lullaby had pink hearts as added special effects to represent Cuteness while Anthem had yellow sparks instead to represent Toughness. Should the Spectacular Talent column be split up into five columns to say the name of the move depending on the type of contest it is, like so?

Type Spectacular Talent
Coolness Beauty Cuteness Cleverness Toughness
Fighting Grand Advance N/A N/A Tactical Approach Ballistic Bullet

If others can confirm that it's the same for them, and/or if you can put together all five names for a few types without discovering inconsistencies in your theory, then I'd say yes. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:37, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
It occurred to me that the text rip might have these names in some regular order, so I looked them up and compared the order to the table that was just made to fill in the whole thing. But it seems some mistakes were made in the table. Particularly, ORAS's text rip would suggest that Ballistic Bullet and Audaces Fortuna Iuvat are the same category, but they were placed in different ones. For now, I'm going with my intuition that "Amor" is more Cute and "Audaces" sounds more Tough (and similar for other types). Besides that, there's also the Fairy talents that were apparently a bit mixed up. But someone should definitely double-check those things (that the Tough/Cute talents are right, and that the Fairy talents are). Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:19, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
