Talk:Harrison (Johto)

Since there was also a Harrison in the Whirl Islands and he already has an article, shouldn't this be renamed to "Harrison (Johto League)", with "Harrison" being a disambiguation page?- unsigned comment from ElectAbuzzzz (talkcontribs)

Huh? He has seven Pokémon? That's strange, because it says that they are on his team... Agent 448Talk | DP 14:26, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

It's probably b/c we don't know which one is in storage... ht14 21:22, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

I find it kind of misleading that the page is titled "Harrison (Johto)" yet he's from Hoenn... But would it be just as misleading to call him "Harrison (Hoenn)"? --ケンジガール 05:15, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

It is misleading - however, we base the titles of characters, when they have a locational modifier attached to distinguish them, on where they appeared, rather than where they are from. If Ash was ever to go back to Hoenn and ran into Harrison there, then MAYBE we could move him to Harrison (Hoenn). However, we usually base it on where they FIRST appeared. We wouldn't call Marina "Marina (Sinnoh)" because she reappeared in Sinnoh, would we? But Harrison probably won't reappear save with the possible GSDS anime story arc (Johto Battle Frontier?), and even that's doubtful. So for at least now, if not for ever, Harrison (Johto).

Actually, Marina did first appear in Johto in The Legend of Thunder. --ケンジガール 05:23, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. And she briefly reappeared with the name "Dani" during the Silver Conference on the PC. She later made several cameos. But she first appeared in Johto, so she's Marina (Johto) to distinguish her from that girl in the Orange Islands from the Golduck episode. I was just saying that since she's appearing now in Sinnoh, we're not going to move her suddenly to Marina (Sinnoh). That would be silly. Harrison works by similar logic in that he appeared first in Johto, regardless of whether he's from Hoenn or not. If he reappears, he'll still be Harrison (Johto). We already mention on the article in several places he's from Littleroot Town, Hoenn, so I don't think it's that confusing to people looking him up. Besides, he only appeared in Johto so far, so people will look him up under the Johto reference. Satosuke 11:37, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Relatives

Next to relatives, it states that he's got a grandfather. Was that mentioned in an anime episode? WATERWARRIOR67 (talk) 14:32, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
