Pokémon in Latin America

Support (7)

  • An article that shows the important facets of Pokémon franchise in Latin America in general level since it is a region of a single market but with some differences of events in certain countries. --Toonamimaniacolatino 23:12, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Definitely the most thorough and detailed Project Globe article. Covers every imaginable part of the franchise - games, anime, merchandise, fandom, TCG, manga. --ZestyCactus 02:29, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
  • This article informs the rest of the world how Latin America handles Pokémon in their own region. This is both informative, and entertaining, as well as being very good with grammer, etc. --Skulblaka Shurtugal
  • Has plenty of helpful information on Pokémon in Latin America; including events, anime, and cast. --Umbreonmaster6
  • Everything I wanted to say about this article has pretty much already been said above, so...yeah, I'm supporting this. Compass 23:52, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I like how the information is organised and it is very very complete. I think it really should be noted as a FA. YukitoOoO 03:33, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Article could be better, now that I'm in Mexico I'll be able to contribute to it more in the upcoming months. But even so I think the article is good enough to be featured and would give some good insight to other people of Pokemon around the world.Sdp

  • What makes this so much better than the rest of the Pokémon in the world articles? Nothing! MaverickNate 03:36, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to object on this. The Cast and Crew part looks really messy to me and could use a bit of a clean up, there's just too much going on there. Just because it's detailed, doesn't mean it's ready to be featured. It still needs work. I also agree with Nate, how does this article exactly make it better than the rest? Jello 03:42, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Yeah... cast and crew looks really really crappy. Certainly not FA quality there. 梅子 03:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • The article still looks fairly cluttered, especially in the Cast and Crew section. --Darkeiya talk to me! 03:49, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I agree with Nate on this one, followed by the rest of the above, sorry...:V--Psyライダー 03:53, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • As people above me have stated, the article starts out good quality, but the further down the article you get the messier it gets. The cast and crew section is very difficult to read with a lot of links, external links and bold all mixed throughout the regular text. That section need a major cleanup, with some decent format fixing. Either list the cast by member followed by their roles, or the roles followed by the cast member. It currently starts out one way, has a bit in the middle where it is both, and ends the other way. Until that it done it is a definite No from me. There are plenty of better Pokémon World articles on the 'pedia at the moment. Werdnae (talk) 04:13, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, I understand that the delivery section does not look good, but Werdnae is wrong in saying that the other articles on Pokémon in the world are better than this, other articles have almost nothing in comparison to contetinido has this article. Maybe you do not understand because they are not in Latin America. Anyway, I promptly let in to clean up that section but for my part could not do that I have problems with the domain that I have the English language. --Toonamimaniacolatino 21:53, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
    • The problem with that statement is that the featured article isn't an award for content. If it was then it would simply be a case of taking the largest pages. The featured article must be an article of the highest quality. Quality can't be measured by length and content. Style, flow and readability of the article must be taken into account. For fixing it I would suggest taking all the names in bold, and using them as the start of a paragraph saying what they did. Then try and reduce the number of links and external links. I'm also not sure whether all of the voice actors need pictures. Maybe just have their roles in the Pokémon series and link to their wikipedia articles? At the moment it just reads like someone's taken their wikipedia articles and condensed any VA info into a single paragraph, which isn't in any way going to make it high quality.

      • There are no such links to articles of voice actors in Wikipedia in Spanish that since last year it has been decided by sysops deleting the articles of these people because most of them presented problems of content. There is another way to fix that section? your ideas are good, but note that some characters have voices of 2-4. As well it might be mentioned without damaging the important thing? --Toonamimaniacolatino 22:45, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
