Name / List of cards in the theme decks.

This set be named HS Unleashed. The official artwork say HS Unleashed, even in the theme decks.

Also, Would anyone care to create the pages for the theme decks? I have the list of cards found in those decks (I don't know how to create those types of pages). TY--Suffen 23:05, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

The expansion's name is Unleashed; we do not use the expansion block prefixes when naming pages, except for that one that would have been problematic. MaverickNate 23:24, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Then the name of the page is wrong. There is no expansion called "Unleashed", the correct name is "HS Unleashed". It's not accurate to have them at the wrong name (the same problem exists with the last 2 seasons of the anime, the OFFICIAL names use just "DP" but the page names use "Diamond & Pearl").

I agree with this. In advertising and just official material in general "HS Unleashed" is the name -- the naming convention should stick with the official naming convention. --Suffen 00:30, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
The expansion block ceased being part of actual set names when the card game transitioned into Generation IV. For example, it's "Mysterious Treasures", not "Diamond & Pearl Mysterious Treasures"--which, for the record, would be unwieldy if the expansion block were part of the set's name (which it's not). Could you imagine a page title of "Aggron (Diamond & Pearl Mysterious Treasures 1)" for a card article? Didn't think so.
Furthermore, if we were to do the wrong thing and consider the expansion block as part of a set's name. we'd be making a lot of page moves to unwieldy titles--9 expansions worth (of 11) in the Diamond/Pearl series as well as one so far (of two) in the HeartGold/SoulSilver series. Keep in mind, we had to lock editing to all but sysops when we did the big Special-to-Adventures move, and there was a lot of resistance toward that idea originally because of the sheer size of such a task.
The only reason we even use the set block name in the title of the article for the Arceus expansion is because putting the set's true name into our naming convention would conflict with our TCG Pokémon disambig system and its page for Arceus. The Arceus expansion is the exception, not the rule, and even then the card articles for that expansion reflects the true name of the set. --Shiningpikablu252 01:57, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Nature of "Unreleased in Japan"

I noticed that this set was listed as "Unreleased in Japan", but nothing in the article stated where these cards came from. Was it a reprint set like Base Set 2 or Legendary Collections or were they cards made for North America (or rather, outside of Japan) only? -- Nick15 01:24, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Never mind, I'm an idiot, I see where they came from. In that case, can perhaps the intro paragraph to this article state that it was a set of cards from other previously-unreleased sets, just as BS2 and LC mentions that they're a reprint set? -- Nick15 01:27, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
