Is she?

Is she the same person from the games? The one you give the old charm to? Either way, I think something should be noted. --ケンジガール 03:18, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Cynthia's grandmother in the game AND anime...why don't you add it, your grammars probably way better.--Tavisource 03:30, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion

What do you guys think about moving this page to "Cynthia's grandmother"? Because in the games she wasn't given a name and was also not a professor. Its only the anime that made her like that. Then we could have different sections of the anime and games and only mention Karashina in the anime section. That is if someone can add info on the games. Jmath 14:11, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Jmath! We should either move the page to "Cynthia's grandmother" (because it's the anime which gave him such name and status) or split the articles (Karashina and Unnamed "Cynthia's grandmother" from games and mangas) and consider the two as Inter-Media Counterparts. --Maxim 21:26, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Dr. Karashina?

Shouldn't she be called Dr. Karashina? Her name has 博士 hakase in it which, in the case of the other Pokémon professors, means Dr. --ケンジガール 06:05, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

He was at Professor Nanakamado before we knew he was Rowan. More often than not, "Dr. X" who studies Pokémon becomes "Professor X" in English. It's not the rule, just what kind of happens when Dr. Ookido became Prof. Oak, Dr. Utsugi became Prof. Elm, Dr. Odamaki became Prof. Birch, and Dr. Namakamado became Prof. Rowan. People end up guessing that she'll become Prof. Something or Other. Anyway, her appearance in English is less than 10 weeks off. As long as Dr. Karashina redirects here it'll get updated by the redirect fixer as soon as it's moved to her English name. TTEchidna 09:06, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Opening line

Err, it seems that starting an article with a section is awkward, IMO. --☆Kevzo8 13:29, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Seems redundant too. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 13:29, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Template

Shouldn't she be included in the animecharacters template? She did appear again... Jmath 19:51, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Relevant?

Is it relevant she looks very similar to Stage Madonna Kate? I just read a comment about it and I have to agree, they do look a lot alike But I'm not sure if it's relevant.--Dman dustin 07:54, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Quite true, but not really relevant to the article. You know, once you add it on the Trivia section, users would start deleting it with the edit summary "Speculation".. Who knows, maybe someday, it'd be revealed that they are relatives.. Ҝəυzø8 07:59, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Carolina

I just watched the two-parter with Carolina and she wasn't once referred to as "Professor Carolina", just "Carolina". Think it should be moved as such? J-J-M 20:43, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Appearance

Her appearance in anime and in pokemon adventure(comics) are totally different.Is it noticeable? I think most character look alike.But for her in comics she was short and kind looking old-man.Meearaimeng 04:20, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Well, I think the manga counterpart deserved to be mentioned in a different section, because their actions are different from the anime.--Hikaru Wazana 18:20, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Article title

Considering that only the anime character is named Professor Carolina, this article title seems very misleading... I would suggest "Cynthia's grandmother," which, while not the official name of the character, would be general enough for readers to understand. ht14 22:02, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

She is a game character first and for-most, her anime and even manga counterparts are based on her actions in the games. She should be called "Cynthia's grandmother", I agree. Trotz59 (talk) 05:15, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I vote for "Cynthia's grandmother" as well, given that she's only named Carolina in the anime. --The Great Butler (talk) 05:43, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I agree that the article should be renamed. Lostdrewid (talk) 00:23, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I also vote on changing the title to "Cynthia's grandmother". It's way less misleading. --JoeIsCool(I refuse to be communicated with!) 00:47, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I get the point but I completely disagree with this moving. She is still a character of the anime with a name. To me it seems utterly ridiculous to take an anime character's name away because the game character they were based on doesn't have one. If anything, Cynthia's grandmother should split into its own article if people feeling they are being mislead with a link to Professor Carolina in the anime section. --ケンジガール 22:18, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
I am ok with that proposition of a separate article with a link to Professor Carolina in the anime section. ht14 04:59, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
