About Team Galactic being the only "openly advertised" crime syndicate...

Didn't Team Magma or Team Aqua (depending on the version) scribble "Team (Insert team name here) Rulez!!!" on a sign near New Mauville? I mean, It isn't exactly as "Openly" advertized as their requesting donations of pokemon (though, really, in Eterna City, they most likely threatened/robbed them considering how one member, when you speak with him says "Hey YOU! Oh, wait, he seems like a very tough trainer, maybe I shouldn't rob him of his pokemon.") but it was definitely Openly Advertized nonetheless.

Graffiti, which could've been done by a single member, is definitely something completely different from buying advertising slots on television.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 14:52, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Team Galactic and Roughneck Kirby

Roughneck Kirby: My Pokémon were taken from me...Team Galactic did it. Ever since, I've never forgiven their faces...

Wait a minute. That seems more like something Team Rocket would do. But Team Galactic wouldn't actually KILL a Pokemon, right? RIGHT!??? Actually, since Team Galactic is composed mainly of otaku teenagers, some of the crazier ones might actually do something like that. Don't forget the sink and fridge in Galactic HQ. What's the proof that Cyrus ISN'T drugging those people (who, by the way, REALLY need therapy) just like he did to his Crobat? TorchicBlaziken (talk) 02:53, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Team Galactic asks for Pokémon donations. I'm sure they literally took them.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 07:02, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
err, that scene with Roughneck Kirby took place in the newly restored Sinnoh Pokemon Grave Tower, and his saying that in the setting implies that Roughneck Kirby's pokémon were actually KILLED by Team Galactic, not just stolen. Weedle Mchairybug 16:50, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
just because the location is a grave doesnt mean there dead. It could just be Gamefreak screwing with us. And seriously, pokemon is a game for children and adults.CHILDREN BEING THE KEY WORD i doubt they would imply that Galactic would commit murder--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Could someone find the raw Japanese and give a rough direct translation of that? This could solve the mystery, since if the Japanese version doesn't imply that Team Galactic killed the Pokémon, odds are Team Galactic did not kill the Pokémon. --Shiningpikablu252 17:03, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, American translations can be funky--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
You know, Pokemon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow (as well as the subsequent remakes) mentioned that Team Rocket murdered a Marowak, and those games were also for kids as well. Weedle Mchairybug 17:49, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
True, but thats team Rocket, not Team Galactic. and parents now are neo nazi over the stuff their children play/watch, they might get angry at murder.--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Err... try some other term that implies overprotectiveness, as "Neo Nazi" implies that they actually delight in murder and want to see their children do these things (As the Neo Nazi's are a terrorist party that focus on supremacy and causing people to live in fear of their attacks.), when that's clearly not what you meant. Weedle Mchairybug 18:03, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
True, i should clean up my vocabulary.Ok, theyre overprotective about murder/violence/etc--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Yeah, but either Roughneck Kirby's being overly dramatic, or his Pokemon were killed by Team Galactic, because after the battle, Roughneck Kirby says: "Gwaaaaaah! I'm not doing my Pokémon any favors by ruining its memory like this...I can't be wallowing around forever. I gotta move on and turn a page." If he could get his Pokemon back, I'm sure that he would go straight to Galactic HQ and try to get his Pokemon back. And he would probably get someone else to do it, too. But, if all he thinks he can do is wallow around, there shouldn't be any hope. That, or he had a Clefairy that Team Galactic stole, because he has a Cleffa. TorchicBlaziken (talk) 20:27, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I think the Cleffa is a reference to his name, unless his name is something else in Japanese. But I don't think it being too dark for a children's game is a valid argument, since the entire tower is full of people mourning DEAD Pokémon; also, japanese media (even children's shows) tends to have dark themes quite often and oh darn I just saw the dates on the preceeding posts.

Spoiler warning?!

"Pluto is a new character in Platinum who eventually becomes the Boss" - I've been trying to keep all storyline changes in Platinum away from my attention. I know it's nothing huge, but a spoiler warning would have been nice. Is it even necessary to mention that Pluto becomes the boss? (That's a genuine question btw - as I say, I know nothing about Platinum's story line and by extension, Pluto) Gastly's mama 22:56, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Better than the current, which looks like an omelet? TTEchidna 08:42, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
