Talk:Attila

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

In the English dub of The Legend of Thunder! (Pokémon Chronicles), Attila mentioned at one point (the time he was operating that bipedal walking contraption) that stealing pokémon was reminiscent of the times he herded cattle in the Black Hills. If this is the same Black Hills that I am thinking of, then this provides us with a significant amount of information about Attila.

1) Attila was a cowboy, rancher, etc.. at one point prior to joining Team Rocket

2) Attila lived in or spent some time around the Black Hills of South Dakota, and that by extension that he lived in or spent some time in the United States.

While none of this proves that he originated in the United States, I believe that this should be taken into account on Attila's article; however in light of the fact that I have not seen this particular episode in around 4 months and that this would be my first edit, I would hope for someone to confirm this.

Again I ask--why these names when no one calls them that? The IMM is under Vicious because it's more popular, so why saddle these two with names no one uses? --BJG

I'm trying add the character infoboxes for Attila and Hun, but I'm not exactly good with this sorta thing. If I should bung things up, can someone help me out? Manga-in-a-bottle 04:46, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

What I always do is just copy someone elses from another page. But this would probably be much easier. Copy this and add Attila's info in:
{{CharacterInfobox| name= | jname= | tmname= | slogan=no | image= | caption= | age=no | years= | gender=Male | hometown= | region= | relatives=| trainer=yes | trainerclass= | game=no | leader=no | team=no | brain=no | anime=yes | epnum= | epname= | }}
Hope this helps. --ケンジガール 04:55, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, it did. Not much, as you clearly saw, but it was a start ^_^; Manga-in-a-bottle 05:20, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

a famous historical villain, in this case, Attila the Hun. I find this offensive. Yes, I mean it. I didn't want to remove it myself(which could be considered vandalism) but I'd like to see it corrected. I have no English source but if you check Turkish Language Wikipedia [[1]] you'll see there are people on earth considers him as a hero and an acient leader --Mko 15:24, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

a title?

president is a title, commander is a title, Attila is not a title, sounds like a nickname to me UltamateCharizard 23:37, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

No, its (I think its monglian. whatever language they huns spoke) word for king.DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

Attila The Hun may had an original name, and "Attila" may have been an earned title, but it is also a name now. You can't just go and say Attila is not a name. And there are lot of people who lives with this name : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attila_%28name%29 .- unsigned comment from Lerot (talkcontribs)
