Should something be said about how Bill is identified as a Pokemaniac? It explains his penchant for dressing up as a Pokemon...

How about Nicolai and Harley as well?--Pokencyclopedia 21:19, 17 December 2006 (UTC)


Bill's Father? When do we EVER learn about him?

Or is it something posted by someone who thinks there are two Bills? Satosuke 20:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

In GSC Bill’s mother says his father was a Pokemaniac. “My husband was once known as a POKéMANIAC. BILL must have taken after his father.” IIMarckus 20:47, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Cool. I stand corrected. Satosuke 02:31, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Why the change?

Why did the design change? I've gotta admit, even though I like Charizard, I like the older design better... So... can anyone find out why the design changed?--"X", "PEACE" TOTHE DRAGONS ANDTHE BEASTS 23:39, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

I guess before they were Pokémon "nerds", with the stereotypical stuff of nerds like lab coats. But then I assume Nintendo made it more of a "Pokémon fanatic" rather than "nerd" thing, so they got the costumes reflecting pure obsession. er1hp streak 23:41, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, can we say something like that? (I wish they didn't change, though.)--"X", "PEACE" TOTHE DRAGONS ANDTHE BEASTS 00:02, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Umm... i think it's more of due to iin R/B/Y and the remakes, there was a Pokemaniac in the Rock Tunnel who talks about Pokemon Cosplay (only in the remakes, in RBY he calls it Costume Play). So maybe they changed it after that part, to make it more fit? I dunno, ever since i saw that cosplay part, i wondered why he wasn't in costume. Lol. Now he is!

Charizard?

Their HGSS design doesn't resemble Charizard, they seem more like green Rhydons. The " In Generation III, they were changed so that they became cosplayers dressing up in Charizard costumes." line doesn't apply to them anymore. Should someone add a line concerning that?

Colosseum Leaders as Poké Maniac?

Since some Colosseum Leaders from Pokémon Battle Revolution wear some Pokémon costumes as well, ignoring their Pokémon, couldn't they be considered as Poké Maniacs? --PKMNChamp 08:20, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Not unless they are stated to be. Wearing a Pokémon costume is just Pokémon cosplay. Don't forget that Poké Kids do too. --SnorlaxMonster 08:24, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
