Talk:Lentimas Town

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

I know Bulbapedia's policy of never changing or adding information without an official source, but surely Serebii is reliable enough? There's been a few times where he's put up fake stuff by accident, but in this occasions other websites (such as Bulbapedia itself) believed it as well. Don't Hug Lucario!

Use reliable sources and do not steal from other websites. Serebii is a fansite so it's not official. We will not be using Serebii as a source and it's not to be used as a "reliable" source. --Pokemaster97 20:42, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
I will add that Serebii could possibly be used as a source finder, depending on if they list where they got their information and if it can be traced back to an official source. Of course, Serebii did not list a source for their information in this case. To add to this, Pokébeach does mention a potential official source here, [1], but I have yet to find where it says anything about Yamaji/Lentimas Town so it still cannot be added until an official mention of it is found.

Alright, I'd like to confirm that Yamaji Town in the English Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 is called "Lentimas Town".

Here's the source: http://au.ign.com/wikis/pokemon-black-white-version-2/Lentimas_Town

I wonder if this is good enough? It's from IGN. ——Platinum Lucario (talk) 08:02, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

IGN is still not an official source. Not to mention that they've probably taken that from Serebii. --Maxim (talk) 08:11, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
It was referred to audibly in a British TV advertisement earlier tonight. Unable to find it online, as of yet, but it's merely a matter of time. So if you're getting antsy to cite the development, keep an eye out for that on YouTube, etc. --JaffaJHDA (talk) 18:49, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
I caught it on my mobile, video here to view. Hope that helps. --JaffaJHDA (talk) 19:55, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
While we appreciate the link, it's unfortunately impossible to determine the proper spelling. I think it works as a source, but without a spelling, we effectively can't move any pages. -- MAGNEDETH 00:25, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
It may because I'm British myself but I had no difficulty in determining the spelling from that clip. I can possibly see why non-English people could hear it as Lentimus Town, though the man's done voiceover work for Nintendo's adverts before, and I can assure you, it's just his accent. - Blazios talk 00:37, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm English, and I would have spelled it "Lentimus"... so we really can't tell. --Flicky1991 18:13, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Sadly... an attempt to prove a video as a source has failed. Also what should be written in the reliable source guidelines is that nothing can be proved as a notable source unless it shows the text of a name, not just an audio spelling of the town name. 'Cause who knows how it could be spelt, it could be spelt "Lentimas" or "Lentimus", I guess we'll never know until the games are released, sorry. —Platinum Lucario (talk) 03:57, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Oh yes, and another thing. Has the German name for Yamaji Town really been confirmed? Is there a reliable source for "Monsentiero"? —Platinum Lucario (talk) 04:02, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
According to one user in the German wiki, Monsentiero and Abidaya City were revealed on Pokémon Day 2012 in Berlin. --超龍Chao 09:11, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
