Literal Translation of Phrases

Does anyone object to me adding a literal translation of the Japanese phrases? Here's what I have: みんな ハッピー かんたん つうしん PhantomJunkie 01:09, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Leaving it as is is probably the best. After all, Japanese players wouldn't have any need for romanization or translation, and once the English release is out it will be different. --jda95 01:12, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Fateful Encounter flags

Has anyone checked if the Transfer Machine is necessary, or merely convenient, for encounters? Does it work at all with the PokeShifter? PLA 08:54, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

The Crown Beasts and Celebi can be transfered via PokéTransfer as well, with the Relocator being for mere convenience. However, the Lock Capsule item, which can be transferred via Relocator, can not be transferred via PokéTransfer, as the PokéTransfer can only transfer Pokémon.--TrickyB 01:57, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Ah, excellent. Thank you. PLA 09:23, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

The Poke transfer can still trigger the events but for some reason the article said it couldn't, but I went ahead and fixed it. Hyper Shadow 16:05, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Transfer Machine's English Name

So I just downloaded Celebi from GameStop, and I saw the guide to what happens when you transfer Celebi over to Black and White via Transfer Machine. However, it confirmed its English name as the Relocator. --TrickyB 01:31, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

You wouldn't possibly have access to a picture of the text in the leaflet? Blazios 01:47, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
If you are asking if I can scan it, then no I can't. But it does show the Transfer Machine being called the Relocator in the screenshot that shows Celebi being transfered. --TrickyB 05:33, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Berries

The article says that the event berries that came with the shiny gerbils and Celebi must be removed. But must they? I heard rumors that they are allowed to hold the berries they came with. I've never been able to get a definite, straight answer for this, and if this rumor is true, such information would be invaluable within the article. - unsigned comment from Missingno.

Well, I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I highly doubt that you can transfer items other than the Lock Capsule, as to prevent Generation IV items not in Black and White's data from getting into the game. --TrickyB 01:57, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
I know that ordinary hold items aren't allowed, the rumor I heard specificially refers to the berries that they came with. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 21:18, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Nevermind, got my answer elsewhere. Not even the berries can be held, the article is correct as is. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 02:35, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Trade and Activate

Quick question: If I have the beasts and I don't activate the event on that save file, will the event still be triggered if I trade them to a different game?

Also, I heard somewhere in the grapevine that GenerationV events are rigged for one-time flags. Is that true?

According to other people, they work even when traded as long as they haven't been used. tc²₆tc26 04:16, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I've confirmed this myself. And yes, each beast/Celebi can only activate its event once, although if you have a full set of beasts you can use each one seperately on three different games, since you only need one to trigger the Zoroark event. Bluesun 04:45, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
If it helps, the legendary beasts I didn't use (For example, if I used an Entei, a Suicune would be an example) still have a tag in their description that says "Try taking it to Lostlorn Forest" which I presume means it can still activate the event, I expect this is the same with Celebis. --Nintendo Mad 16:40, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Question?

Do i really need a copy of a IV Gen game to use the Relocater to unlock a shiny Entei, Raikou, and Suicune? Shadd21 02:22, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

The beasts were events for Gen IV games. So without a Gen IV game, there's no way you could have received the beasts. So in a way, yes. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:25, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

In Other Languages

This article is also in dire need of an "In other languages" section, even if they're the same name in other languages ("Relocator").... although THAT hasn't stopped other people from adding it to other articles.

Now I would add one myself, but I'm not sure what colors or formatting I should use. As such, just so people can add it later, here is the Korean name for the Reocator:

  • 전송머신 Jeun-Song-Ma-Shin -- "Transfer Machine"

Question

Can I trade from a japanese white version to another white or pearl version from North America? --Burning_shadow http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:Burning_shadow
