Was Growlie actually James' I mean did he have a pokéball for it otherwise it is pretty much just a wild pokémon that lived with him. Bobtherandomguy 13:22, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

If there's a Pokéball, the Pokéball's owner owns the Pokémon it holds...OptimatumTalk|13:24 1 Mar 2008
What I mean is did they ever show the pokéballBobtherandomguy 13:32, 1 March 2008 (UTC)


Where did the spelling "Growlie" come from? I've always known the Pokémon's nickname to be "Growly"; the closed captioning supports it. Do the DVD subtitles say different from the closed captioning? --Shiningpikablu252 04:39, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Uh, anybody? I know for a fact that I saw the closed captioning read "Growly" with a Y. Does anyone have access to the DVD subtitles to see if they correlate or contradict the closed captioning? --Shiningpikablu252 19:25, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Category: Anime starter Pokémon?

Was Ga-chan ever proven to be Kojiro's starter Pokémon? シンジShinjiLover,Edits 17:41, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, it was his first. That usually means a starter. Reign 20:51, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
But WAS it his first? James was shown to be quite a young boy when he and Carnivine first met. Is it ever explicitly stated that Growlie was his first? Granted, there's no such evidence for Carnivine either, but my point is, I doubt we should assume that Growlie was James's starter unless it's confirmed. Now, I would love nothing more than to check this out for myself, but I don't have access to the episode. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch!

Shouldn't there be some kind of reference to the irony of James having a Growlithe? SuperFusion 13:15, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

And what is so ironic about it? --LimeGreenCharizard-- 12:03, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
