Forgot to say in my edit summary

Please stop taking the widths out of the Pokémon boxes. This is like the second time it's happened. It looks terrible having that large white space. Either expand his article or leave it as it is. Thank you. --ケンジガール 06:36, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

And the "squeezed" way it is now, looking good? ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 06:44, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
The squeezed one looks even worse, they're unreadable now. If someone is going to readjust the width, they should go with the default widths that the other articles use. Rai Marshall 07:00, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Unreadable? There's nothing wrong with it. Ataro 07:11, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
I am sorry but it's just Google Chrome that messing it up, apparently. Also, it is looking fine in Opera but still has a bit white empty space. However, it is working perfectly in Firefox. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 07:13, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes it is. 'Unreadable' as in, it's so squeezed that I plain don't want to read it at all. It's extremely messy and unpractical. Do I have to take a screenshot of what they look like? Rai Marshall 07:14, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Have a look at these screenshots from different browsers, Chrome, Firefox and Opera. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 07:23, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
I use Google Chrome. The screenshot taken from it is exactly what's on my screen. Rai Marshall 07:25, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
From what I remember. Bulbapedia is best for Firefox users. Ataro 07:29, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
It's still not good whatsoever. I prefer, nay recommend, that the widths be removed from the boxes. So what if there will be huge white space, at least the things would be readable to everyone. Rai Marshall 07:31, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
To be honest, Ataro is right. It's not just about a single article, it is the same problem with move templates, sometime movie templates and a lot of other articles. I think switching to Firefox is a good idea. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 07:40, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Not everyone wants to or can switch to Firefox, I'm just saying. Rai Marshall 07:43, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Thing is, a lot of the templates we use conform to the Firefox browser. I mean, when I had IE everything didn't appear roundy and nice. Also, it wouldn't show animated PNGs. So I had no choice but to change for Bulbapedia. I'll give you this one as it's not that big of a deal. But I'm just saying you are bound to have problems with other articles if you continue to use Google Chrome. And those problems can't be fixed. --ケンジガール 07:52, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Super Nerd

It seems to me Luke is based on a Super Nerd. Even though I don't have much proof, I saw his picture and he was holding a camera, had huge glasses, clean clothes, nicely-trimmed hair, has a Golett, ect. Am I right? Or wrong? ♣♣ Ƒǿҫὑṩ ❺❽ ♣♣ 20:33, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

None of the Super Nerd sprites have cameras or suspenders, and a golem would be a more fitting match for a Sage than a Super Nerd, so I'm going to say "no." —Minimiscience 21:09, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Template

Why is he in the template already? Isn't it too early. I don't think that he'll become an important character, there's a chance that we'll never see him in the Don Battle tournament. Adding him to the template is like adding Thatcher from Hoenn, those PMC creepers or Holly from Hearthome Tournament. Don't be so quick. Recurring =/= important. --Maxim 09:03, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

We'll never see him in the Don Battle tournament? His appearance in BW040 and 41 is fully confirmed already. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 10:46, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
He means After. Ataro 11:02, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I know its speculation but the fact Luke owns the highly marketable Zorua, makes him seem as if he'll have many future appearances, simaliar to Conway, so I believe he should be in the template, and actualy I think Holly should be too ^_^ Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 11:05, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
And he battles against two main characters, Cilan (with Larvesta) and Iris, and maybe even Ash if he and Ash win against Iris and Antonio/Dean, respectively. Also, his battle against Sekimoto is likely seen on-screen like other Round 1 battles. You should stop this "never seen again" whining that you said about Burgundy, Team Plasma, Langley and even Scraggy & Swadloon.--Den Zen 11:14, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
And I'm still doubting Burgundy's and Langley's rival status. But really, bringing my previous mistakes doesn't make this any more credible. And Luke isn't the kind of character that'd reappear. Remember Holly? Everyone was positive that she'd reappear. She never did. Luke may meet similar fate. Adding him to the template so quickly is really speculative. --Maxim 12:32, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
During Pokémon Smash's preview of the Don Battle arc, they specifically called Burgundy and Langley Cilan's rival and Iris's rival, respectively. Luke already appeared in one episode that wasn't the Don Battle arc and that's good enough. Lyra and Khoury spent the same amount of time with Ash and never returned. Why is Luke some how different? And why is it so speculative to add him to the template? Does it mean that were saying he will definitely return later? No, I think not. Template is not for "These people will definitely reappear again afterwards lol". It lists characters that had a significant role and that appeared in more than one episode.
I'd also like to point out Maxim that you said a long time ago that Kenny and J would never appear again. And look what happened. Kenny ended up being Dawn's second most important rival and J was an important necessity to Team Galactic's over all plan. So... --ケンジガール 13:47, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
The fact that I was wrong in the past doesn't change anything. Yes, I tend to underestimate anime-invented characters. But that doesn't change the fact that Luke has big chances to never become a major character. He seems to be just there for tournament and nothing more. For all we know, he might become Holly's "spiritual successor". He might reappear, sure. But that's way too early to judge. He hasn't declared to be anyone's rival or anything like that. Also, don't compare him to Lyra. Lyra is a player character from the games. --Maxim 13:57, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
If Luke was only for the tournament, then he wouldn't have gotten his own episode last week. Ataro 13:59, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Okay, for a filler and for tournament. Still, he's just one-arc character like Holly. Ah, by the way, I think that putting Harrison, Morrison, Tyson and (especially) Solidad under rivals is also a BIG exagerration. --Maxim 14:02, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Gollet

You may or may not agree, but with Gollet appearing to be a walking Pokemon like Zorua, having a significant battle, being intresting because it helps Luke make films and showing a bit of personality - Would anyone agree it deserves its own page as well, but if not, I'm sure it will in the future Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 01:43, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Ya I say it deserves it's own page too.RBK 02:03, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

I also agree with this. Golett had a much bigger impact on the Don Battle plot than Zorua IMHO Watchermark 17:25, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

I might have said yes. But then again, Luke really isn't that important of a character to warrant a page for two of his Pokémon. His Zorua is his most important obviously even if she didn't battle in the tournament. --ケンジガール 03:59, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
So what your saying is, mabye in the future? I admit even if Luke was a full-rival character, a page for Golett now would be a strech Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 06:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Future maybe. Right now, nope. --ケンジガール 06:41, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Luke = Lucas

I'm not fond of certain speculations of characters' dub name origins, but still, I'm surprised no one has mentioned this name being related to Lucas, as in George Lucas. --Johans 23:36, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Well it is Luke in Japanese too. But I'm personally not opposed to the idea he was named after George Lucas. Especially considering his attire and Lucas' movies have big fanbases in Japan as well. --ケンジガール 06:38, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Gollet

Since we know that Gollet is set to be a Golurk in the upcoming Luke episode, can we give him a page when that episode airs??RBK 07:20, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Well, he has not evolved, but this episode gave him a good screentime.Hikaru Wazana 14:40, June 7 2012 (UTC)
It didn't even do anything other than appear in the movie. Sure, it evolved in the movie, but that was Zorua as Golurk. Ataro 14:42, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
