Okay, I understand that the root words apply to him; however, I don't think "vice" is meant to imply that he isn't the leader (although that later turned out to be the case). I think it's more likely to come from the definition of "vice" meaning "sin". Can we maybe chop that last part off of the trivia? --AndyPKMN 18:53, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
- I agree. The "not the leader" theory is just a Pokémon version of conspiracy theory. How could NoA know that already when Colosseum was out? His name is simply a portmanteau of "evil" and "vice" (sin). There's no other option. --Maxim 19:32, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
- I agree too. Also, the theory that he's based on Dr Robotnic seems a bit of a stretch. He's overweight and he has facial hair (which isn't even the same, or similar), that doesn't seem like enough. Unless there's some kind of official confirmation I'm missing here.... --Derian 19:41, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
