Due to school, I am not here as frequently as usual. As such, it may take some time to respond to your questions. If at all possible, please ask another admin for help for non-anime issues. Thank you very much.

Attention: Before you post

Since this has happened repeatedly, here is a list of Pokémon belonging to rivals/recurring in the anime that I wish you would not ask me about making them in your userspace. These Pokémon did have articles before but the Editorial Board agreed upon them being merged into the Trainer's article. Here is the list:

  • Max's Ralts
  • Gary's Nidoking
  • Gary's Nidoqueen
  • Drew's Flygon
  • Drew's Masquerain
  • Drew's Absol
  • Drew's Butterfree
  • Harley's Banette
  • Harley's Ariados
  • Harley's Octillery
  • Harley's Wigglytuff
  • Paul's Azumarill
  • Paul's Stantler
  • Paul's Weavile
  • Paul's Gliscor
  • Paul's Ninjask
  • Paul's Drapion
  • Barry's Heracross
  • Zoey's Mismagius
  • Nando's Sunflora
  • Kenny's Alakazam
  • Kenny's Breloom
  • Ursula's Plusle and Minun
  • Casey's Elekid
  • Happy - Ritchie's Butterfree
  • Cruise - Ritchie's Pupitar
  • Rose - Ritchie's Taillow
  • Volkner's Raichu
  • Volkner's Luxray

There are more than this, but most of the others were Gym Leader/Elite Four/Frontier Brain Pokémon and I have yet to be asked about recreating them.

If you would be so kind, try to avoid asking about these Pokémon. The main reason being the obvious one: they were already here and deemed unnotable. The second is about history preservation for the articles that were redirected and not deleted before then. If the decisions were to ever be overturned, the redirects that exist now can be reverted back to the way the were and history will be preserved. Moving a userspace article over the redirect will erase all the history from before. I recommend saving your work on an external program for use at a later time or write what ever information you have into the Trainer article itself. Thank you for understanding. --ケンジガール

Georgia's Beartic

As it is confirmed to have a big role in BW081, could I ask your permission to recreate my user page for Beartic ready for mainspacing at the end of May (It's notabilaty, I think, is definatley on par with Luke's Zorua and Stephan's Sawk) Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:07, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

We should wait until after BW081 airs to see how big of a role it is. --ケンジガール 18:10, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I though so, will do. I have another question though, on Pokemon pages like Ash's Leavanny, should we put extra subheadings e.g. As a Sewaddle, As a Swadloon, As a Leavanny? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:17, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Opps, subbheadings within History is what I mean Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:25, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I don't think it's needed. --ケンジガール 18:32, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I was just thinking that it wouldn't work anyway on page like Ash's Infernape with the With Paul and With Ash headings Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:35, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Teams

Shouldn't each villainous Team have a section with the Pokémon they've used ? (at least the most frequently)----DJWolfy 20:23, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

They already have Pokémon they've used on their designated pages. Using Team Galactic as an example; Pokémon are listed at Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, and the grunts' pages. --ケンジガール 21:03, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh right... didn't think about that. Thanks !----DJWolfy 21:07, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Battle round --> Contest battle

Hello Kenji, I wanted a second opinion about something. A user recently moved Battle round to Contest battle. Do you agree with this? My only issue with the move is that the consistency between the rest of the Contest pages it is grouped with (ie. Appeals round, Dance round, Visual round) is lost. What do you think? --Pokemaster97 20:39, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Since they failed to start a discussion on the matter and didn't even bother to change the links, it should be moved back. They didn't even at least put a reason in the edit summary box which isn't a good thing either. --ケンジガール 22:58, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I'll go move it back then. Thanks. --Pokemaster97 23:02, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
The reason is the article itself. The content of the article pretty much explain the change, that's why I did not give a reason. The lost of consistency between the pages it is grouped with is not a good reason to revert the article's title. --Mikuri 02:13, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
You should always give reasons to why you move articles and preferably discuss it first. Even if you feel your move is self-explanatory in the article content. You should also relink anything that the page is linked on.
Was it ever called a Contest battle in the English dub? I can't recall what the dub name was personally. --ケンジガール 02:20, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
I don't know. I live in Brazil. --Mikuri 02:23, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Since we are an English wiki, it's important to be sure of what the English name is. I'll look into this. --ケンジガール 02:33, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Battle round is not a good name. The battles in Contests are very different from the 'normal' battles. Besides, there are several episodes with "Contest battle" in their names in Japan, and no one with "battle round" in the dub. The consistency is not a problem, even because the other Contest rounds are with the wrong names (according to the games, the right names are Visual Competition, Dance Competition and Acting Competition). --Mikuri 02:36, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
To be fair, prior to Best Wishes, all the dub did was make some joke of the title. It's not surprising that Battle Round would not be in it. And I'm not sure what point you are trying to make by bringing up the super contest rounds from the games. --ケンジガール 02:54, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
My point is, Pokemaster97's only issue with the change in the article's name is the consistency of the group of rounds, and this is not a problem, as the other rounds are with the wrong names and should be changed to the correct names. - unsigned comment from Mikuri (talkcontribs)
What rounds have incorrect names? --ケンジガール 03:09, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Appeals round, Visual round and Dance round, they are called Acting Competition, Visual Competitiond and Dance Competition, respectively, in the games. --Mikuri 03:18, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, yes. I see now. I was looking over here and couldn't figure out that you meant the table. That table is a bit confusing to begin with and should be changed up.
Also, I found out that it is called Contest battle in the English dub as well so it is being moved back. --ケンジガール 03:22, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
I was not aware that those articles were named incorrectly so thank you for pointing that out. There was some confusion because of the way the articles were named. I have moved "Battle round" back to "Contest battle". --Pokemaster97 03:25, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! --Mikuri 03:36, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Nevertheless, remember to discuss a page move on its talk page before doing it. - poikins 05:56, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Venusaur's back sprites

I can tell that the FRLG sprites are different, somehow, but how are the HGSS sprites different? They seem the same as all the Generation IV back sprites. Pringles 04:26, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

The ears are a bit different. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:44, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
So it seems... --Pringles 03:47, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Question

In EP070, Meowth reveals how he met Jessie and James. But at that time Jessie had an Arbok and James had a Weezing. However, in the first episode that the Team Rocket trio is seen, they have an Ekans and a Koffing. I think this is clearly an error, right? --Station7 18:31, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Sounds like an error. --ケンジガール 18:49, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
Having watched this episode quite a few times in the past week, I think you've got the present and past mixed up. Meowth doesn't flash back to when he met Jessie and james; whe nthey burst in and save him from the gang of Meowth, it's in the present day. Meowth walked off while they were in the theater and they came looking for him (which is why he's wearing his coat in that scene, which he only wears in the present). --SnorlaxMonster 10:46, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
You're right. Sorry about that. --Station7 14:41, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Gender

In the case of Pokémon with the confirmed gender in the dub, shouldn't their gender be listed as Male/Female rather than Unknown? Since we focus on the english dub, the first variant would be much better.----DJWolfy 21:53, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

This has been discussed before and it is better to go by the original in this case. --ケンジガール 22:12, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Hm, fantasies and flashbacks do count as debuts right ? Because Dialga and Palkia appeared normally in a fantasy in DP036. They weren't just silhouettes. They even made sounds. That would mean they made their anime debuts in that episode right ?----DJWolfy 23:12, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

According to this, they do. --ケンジガール 23:24, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Well someone seems to mess up with the debuts or at least messed up before. I'm gonna correct it.----DJWolfy 23:44, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Love Triangle

Hey, Kenji-girl. I was wondering if you create a shipping page about Stephan and Bianca and you put that in the Donamite there was a love triangle between Bianca, Stephan and Masaomi. Do you think it's possible anyway? TheSeviper ♫ハブネーク♫ 14:59, 01 May 2012 (GMT)

Aside from BrocketShipping, which kinda isn't a triangle I guess, we don't seem to make love triangle shipping pages on this site. It's something that you should talk to ArcToraphim about. --ケンジガール 18:10, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

EP040 unaired, Winter Special 1998 and New Year Special 1999

Hi, I'd like your help because people keep redirecting and reverting pages I created towards the wrong article. The page I created deals with a special two-hour installment of Pokémon aired on Jan 1 1999 as seen here: http://pokeani.s47.xrea.com/s-title/subtitle-special.html and http://www.tsutaya.co.jp/works/10012237.html for some reason, people keep redirecting it to an unrelated yet similarly titled unaired 30-minute episode from 1997 and I'd like it to stop, thanks a lot in advance.

If you could also undelete the Winter special page as linked on the clip show page, I'd be grateful too.--Whadaheck 17:07, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

I've looked it over and, just my opinion, these clip shows seem pretty unnotable and are not actual episodes. AG120, DP048, and DP120 differ as they aired during normal broadcast and were treated like episodes. They seem similar to Pokémon Smash! episodes which we do not create articles for. This is just based on what I saw in the links. --ケンジガール 02:04, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Just throwing this out there, but EP040 (unaired) is one of these clip shows. So if they are decided to be unnotable (a decision I completely understand), it should be deleted too. --SnorlaxMonster 13:28, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Oh.. I thought that was aired in the regular line up. If it didn't it shouldn't have EP in it at least. --ケンジガール 19:21, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

If it was a clip show (which is very likely but probably won't ever be confirmed), then EP040 was like AG120, DP048, and DP120 considering it should have aired for half an hour in the regular time slot. And considering we do have one page for Pocket Monsters Encore, Pokémon Smash and the likes, we could have one page for these clip shows. Either way, if the New Year Special page isn't redirecting to the clip show, why not go ahead and delete it altogether?Whadaheck 10:11, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it was scheduled to air on New Years day which fell on a Wednesday, unlike Tuesday when the anime did air before the whole EP038 incident. And we do have a page for the clip shows and I do not mind them being there. EP040 will be taken care of soon. --ケンジガール 04:39, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Given the name has 'Pocket Monsters Encore', it could have also been a plain repeat showing of two episodes in a row. From comparing various production episode numbers, the 31/12/1997 one was never a new episode at least, so there's no mysteriously unaired content except possibly a clipshow voiceover. Bluesun 17:10, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Confusion

As I'm adding missing appearances of Pokémon from the movies, I keep tripping over that annoying green background of the Pokémon World which only forces Pokéys to appear. I'm not quite convinced they should be counted as appearances much less as debuts. Could you take a look at it to see what I'm talking about?----DJWolfy 13:27, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

What movie are you talking about? What is the green background? --ケンジガール 19:21, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, Jo deleted the link. I'm talking about M07, and the green background at the begining of the movie where some Pokémon are shown such as Registeel, Gardevoir.. and it is marked as their debuts, althought it isn't some kind of physical appearance, more like a forced one. If you by any means can watch the movie.. then you'll understand.----DJWolfy 20:18, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Well they're in movement so I don't see why they are any different from all the debuts made in M14. Just because they are not in a natural setting shouldn't change the debut status. --ケンジガール 20:31, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Not that kind of movement... I mean not like the others who are on a real terrain and such. The debuts made in M14 are Pokémon in their natural habitat, they move freely and such, while these ones, they just appear, much like photos...----DJWolfy 20:34, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Like I said, it shouldn't matter that they aren't in a natural setting. They are not still photos. They move. --ケンジガール 20:39, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok then, in conclusion they count as debuts. So the only ones which don't count as debuts are photos, statues and silhouettes ? And statues don't count as appearances too right ? But silhouettes count as appearances but not as debuts ?----DJWolfy 20:42, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Hmm... Silhouettes? Yeah. I guess appearance but not debut. --ケンジガール 20:46, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Got it and fixed it. I always thought, shouldn't there be a manual of style for the anime ? It sure would help a lot.----DJWolfy 20:48, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

It's in the works. --ケンジガール 20:52, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
How long will it take till it's "released" ? ----DJWolfy 20:57, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Not sure. --ケンジガール 22:02, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Major Events Noted (BW079)

Although they are not noted until after it airs, can it be marked as hidden? 태권도 합기도 01:31, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes. It was already stated on BW079 anyway. --ケンジガール 01:34, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Smash! ending theme

Since we have pages on the ending themes of Hōsō and Sunday, should we have pages for ending themes of Smash (such as "Endless Fighter" and "I am a Hero")? --超龍對話 04:56, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, if we have Sunday's ending themes. --ケンジガール 06:55, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Question regarding trivia

Hi. I'm just curious. Why is comparison trivia not allowed? --PKMNAdventurer 22:55, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Because similarities are a relatively common thing in the anime especially with Pokémon. The writers aren't always going to think of fresh material with every Pokémon's story. It's not something that needs to be pointed out. What ever comparisons people want to draw it should be on their own and not noted upon on Bulbapedia. Also they can be opinionated at times. --ケンジガール 23:03, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Movie 15 Pokemon

I was wondering if i could make he movie 15 pokemon since the pages for reshiram and zekrom came about two months before movie 14 and they had information from trailers. User:davidader 22:56, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

The pages for Reshiram and Zekrom were made the day after the movie premiered, not months before. Also, when you add a message to the talk pages, please make sure you put it on the bottom. --ケンジガール 06:01, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

BW007

Is the Japanese name for this episode written correctly? I thought it was originally "Get Snivy with Attract?!". The title on the episode itself says the same thing. 태권도 합기도 09:15, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Rematch

This came up on the staff chat due to someone suggesting we add Chili's rematch with Ash in BW058 on the talk page. We were thinking that only official matches for a Badge or Symbol should be on there, otherwise we'll end up with a huge list of rival battles on there too. Even if we limit it to matches with Gym Leaders and Frontier Brains, matches with Misty, Brock, Cilan, and Team Rocket would still make it huge. So should we remove Wattson and Gardenia from the page? --SnorlaxMonster 13:23, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm confused by the question. What page are we talking about the rematch being added? --ケンジガール 23:51, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
This page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:29, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Well I think it should be left to battles between Gym Leaders/Frontier Brains and Ash as that's what it appears to be for anyway. Ash's friends who are Gym Leaders and Team Rocket should obviously be excluded as should rivals. Just my opinion. But I guess I wouldn't have a problem with removing unofficial matches if it really is necessary to remove it. If we did though we'd also have to remove the ones where he fought them unofficially first then officially the next like Norman. Though I might add that he fought Gardenia three times and the third isn't on there. --ケンジガール 01:06, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Norman was official though, as I remember it. But Wattson, and the first Brandon match should be taken off. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:34, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Question about BW079

I know this is not the same as Pokémon Wiki, but I have a question. It's not a spoiler and I haven't find it anywhere so far on the Internet, so here is my question (which I actually hoped for). Since BW079 is coming, I have a theory about this episode, and my question is, if I can put this theory on my userpage? If not, I understand it. --Station7 18:52, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

If it's on your userpage it's fine. --ケンジガール 23:51, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Diamond

I'm not sure if you have Pokémon Diamond (and I never played the game, but will do so), but can you fight with the old Gym leaders from Generation I, II and III? Can you also caught there old Pokémon? --Station7 20:54, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

This is something you should go to the forums for. Bulbapedia is only to be used for article discussions, not game advice. --ケンジガール 22:56, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Cynthia(anime)

I want to know, that page about Cynthia (which was deleted U_U ) still exists on the server somehow? If I recall you're told me that the only reason she could not have one was because she had not appeared in another series in addition to Diamond and Pearl. And now she is set to appear in Best Wishes.--Hikaru Wazana 08:16, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Just because she returns for maybe a couple episodes doesn't mean she should have an article to herself. If it can perfectly fit int he article we have there is no point to it. --ケンジガール 22:56, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Why not? It is an important character in the anime, has connections with Ash, Paul, Dawn and Team Galactic (and possibly now with Iris), and a more elaborate story as well many characters from the anime. She did more for anime that characters like Stephan, Burgundy or Langley. In addition, many of the key characters in Adventures in similar situations has its own exclusive pages as Wally, Bill, Cheren and others. Outside, I'm sorry they sincerity, but the main page it is a mess and with the division at least improve the situation. Well, never mind, do not touch more on this subject.--Hikaru Wazana 19:16, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Please don't compare Cynthia to rival characters. She's a completely different class of character. Rivals appear way more often than she does and many of them. So far she's only a recurring supporting character in the same league Lance as far as I'm concerned. She's a different situation than say Professor Oak and Giovanni who appeared more often with important roles and in every series so far. For Adventures, besides Bianca and Cheren because they are rivals, I don't know enough about it to make a judgement but just because they got split does not me the anime has to follow their protocol. And I don't see how Cynthia's page is a "mess" without the division. Not every page needs to be divided over a few main appearances in the anime.
I've made my decision for now. Unless I see a real reason why Cynthia should get a page other than she will appear in Best Wishes, her anime information is fine where it is. --ケンジガール 04:33, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
I know that is probably like giving blow in a knife, but his opinion is still the same after the latest information? I mean, Cynthia is scheduled to have a major emphasis on Best Wishes 2, in addition to confirmed as "rival" of the main characters in World Tournament.--Hikaru Wazana 03:16, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
My decision still stands until further notice. --ケンジガール 04:04, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Sableye

Why did you remove Sableye from AG029's debut since this page says that side stories are different from the anime ?----DJWolfy 12:26, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

I gave you my reason. The list is seriously outdated anyway if you ask me. It's TV episode debuts. That implies that SS008 is not a TV episode when it is an episode that was shown on TV. --ケンジガール 18:08, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
No, what I meant is that.. uhm side stories count as separate debuts as well as anime... plus it's not the only Pokémon to have its debut first in a side story and then in the anime. The others have their debuts listed in that episode's page too. Well I don't know what to say about TV episode, movies were also shown on TV, I don't know maybe that should be changed to "Anime episode debuts", "Main series debuts" or "Episode debuts"....----DJWolfy 19:01, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
I say just count it as a anime debut and be done with it. Movies I can understand but side stories are much closer to the main series. We shouldn't have to separate them. --ケンジガール 19:12, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
Well sorry Kenji but I just complied with the debut page's rules. If that is so, what happens to the other side-story first debuts ?----DJWolfy 19:42, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
They get listed as the first appearance. If you want, you can put (Japanese debut) and (Dub debut) or what ever it is we put. --ケンジガール 03:54, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

You're confusing me... so their debuts will only appear on the list of debuts page and no on their episode pages' too?----DJWolfy 11:04, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

They can be on the pages. --ケンジガール 06:00, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Besides it's the current only animated appearance of N, Team Plasma or any related characters from this games we have, especially after the episodes with Team Plasma have been banned. Also have one voicework and history in the preview, is not exactly a sequence of events played in the wind.--Hikaru Wazana 10:16, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
Pardon me KG for butting in. The B2W2 SPIM was basically a commercial. It clearly stated the names of the games, and merely showed some scenes from the game, but in an animated style as opposed to actual gameplay. Animated =/= anime. That special had a linear story, where as the SPIM bounced around to different scenes in B2W2. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 10:45, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not questioning the fact of being a promo of the game, I'm putting the fact of being an anime material promoting the game. Have a certain difference between the two. The special made to The Pokémon Ranger, has no end and has a duration with the same amount of this special, and its contribution is null for the anime itself. In fact, this particular special is not even in the same canon that the Ash's quest(as well as the saga of Isamu Akai is for Red in Adventures). Also, as I said is the only animated appearance (and title) of N in anime, I believe it should be mentioned. It's a promo for the game, yes, without doubt, but it is a trailer in anime. I think like all the appearances of a character in one of several manga are are mentioned, in this case also should be.--Hikaru Wazana 03:16, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Recharge moves

Is it okay to remove the statements that say, "<Pokémon> did not recharge after using <Hyper Beam variation>", under the section, Errors, in the episode pages as those only became errors in the games due to the Games =/= Anime effect? I did one so far. Also, I don't think a Pokémon using Psychic on a Dark-type is an error as they're lifting them up.* PattyMan 04:35, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

You're right. They shouldn't be in errors due to them not following the rule most of the time. For the Dark vs Psychic thing, it did show that Psychic-type moves fail against Dark-types in EP171. But I don't know if they have failed in other instances. --ケンジガール 04:41, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Moves

There seems to be some inconsistencies between a number of articles. J's Ariados's knows Spider Web as seen on J's page but this is not mentioned on Spider Web's anime section. The same applies for Jeremiah's Skuntank who has the Stench ability but it isn't mentioned on the ability's anime section. Also, Nando's Roserade seems to know Petal Dance but also this isn't mentioned on the move's anime section. Not sure if the same applies for Ash's Charizard who was commanded to use Mega Punch but didn't listen and the move was never seen done by him since then, although it appears on his page as a known move but not on Mega Punch's anime section. Could you have a look and eventually correct the inconsistencies ?----DJWolfy 11:47, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

If you don't mind me butting in, I can answer this question. ^-^; J's Ariados never used Spider Web at all. Some of the information on pages are wrong. The only move Ariados used was String Shot. As for Skuntank, Skuntank used it, but they were inside a shed, so it couldn't be seen. As for Nando's Roserade, it never used Petal Dance as a Roserade, just as a Roselia. And finally, with Charizard, if the move was never used, how can we write down a method for it? That's probably why it wasn't added. Sorry Kenji, but I remember most of these episodes. ^-^; Littlmiget123 15:31, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
Roselia or Roserade it's the same page. And not sure if it really used it, only an image appeared in the episode which looked like scattered petals.----DJWolfy 18:56, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

May's Combusken

In the Deoxys 2-parter, was Combusken really using Flamethrower instead of Fire Spin? The attack was a spinning and looping Fire attack that went after Deoxys. I thought it was a move error that May said Flamethrower instead of Fire Spin. G50 00:07, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

It did come out as Fire Spin but when it was shown attacking Deoxys with Scpetile's Bullet Seed and Marshtomp's Water Gun, it looked like Flamethrower. This is an error created from clip recycling. --ケンジガール 07:37, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Mine Badge

Spr 3e 129 s.gif We have a shiny Magikarp splashing contest (I think you can figure out the real world equivalent) on our hands over at the badge talk page.

I was reading the descriptions of the badges, more specifically those for the Sinnoh Badges. Well some of the descriptions seem a little far fetch (no pun plz,) especially the Relic badge which looks nothing like Fantina's hair.

Well anyways, I saw a shovel in the design of the Mine Badge, So I posted on the talk page that there should be some mention of it (especially since how most of the badges talk about their basis on the gym leader, and Byron has a shovel) However, Jo the Marten seems to disagree. As I continued to try and get him to see it, I found more shovels buried in the bigger picture. Oh course when I reported those he started accusing me of reaching and being too hopeful trying to prove something that isn't there.

Common sense tells you that the longer you stare at something, the more you notice stuff about it. I even saw a Shield shape after the 11th hour of staring at the bloody thing. (and Byron has a Bastiodon, "the ultimate Shield")

Of course this comparison gets me even more scrutiny and Jo the Marten was starting to become a little hair trigger. I've been up now 27 hours straight (25 then) working on commissions. The fact I am able to spell is a miracle in itself, and he blows up at me for typing "Jo the Martian" instead of "Jo the Marten"

So far the only reasons for debunking what I see is "the shapes are not exactly like a shovel's head" and "the color is wrong" Its like no one has ever seen a square green shovel or something else not atypical of the standard black spade. Everyone is so focused on the pickaxes they can't see anything else. How is it they can see the pickaxes, but not the shovel(s)? You can't have one with out the other, its like having peanut butter without jelly, Spam without ham and a Pokémon game without one Pikachu.

If those reasons listed were warrant enough to debunk what I see, then we should debunk that Pikachu's tail is based on a lightning bolt. After all, it's not 100% shaped like a lightning bolt or or made of actual electricity. I don't want to cause trouble or be a Horsea's tail-end. I've kept a cool head, not made any personal attacks and i even been using logic even though I'm sleep deprived.

How is there not even the tiniest possibility there is one or more shovel and/or shield shapes in the Mine Badge's construct, when the article list the Relic Badge as being shaped like Fantina's hair? At least Byron has a shovel and a shield Pokémon.

Diamond Pearl Byron.png Mine Badge.png

So long rambling story short, What do you see..and even if you don't see a shovel, shovels and/or shield(s) can you pickaxe the Fantina hair thing on the article?

What ever you see/decide I'll find out after I wake up. I'm off to bed. Yamitora1 17:28, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

I read what she said. It was far from "blowing up" at you. She just asked you to spell her name right. Honestly you became overly defensive over a simple request. If you were up for 24 hours straight as you claim and doing all these things then maybe it wasn't the best time to start a huge conversation over what badges look like, no offense.
The Mine Badge looks like three pickaxes joined at the handle if you ask me. The background just exists to define the shapes and do not resemble shovels or a shield, but I don't think they resemble stones either like the page says. And in someway, yes, the Relic Badge does look like Fantina's hair with a missing bun. Those are just my opinions.
In the future, you don't have to type down the whole story on my talk page. You can just tell me to look at talk page and give my opinion. I like to avoid filling up my talk if possible and it will save you time. --ケンジガール 21:57, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Size Discrepancies

When the size of a Pokémon is smaller/bigger/etc. than what it would normally be in an episode; does it go under Trivia or Errors? G50 02:29, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

don't take my word for it, but I believe that would fall under neither. Unless its super sized like the Jiggly Puff that put Giant Gengar and Alakazam to sleep. Many Pokémon throughout the series history have been larger or smaller then their game data indicates. They also have different sizes compared to each other as well. Case in point the size difference between May's Bulbasaur and Ash's
High vine.png

Yamitora1 03:34, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

It depends on the situation. If it's clearly an error, it should go in errors. If it was meant to be, then it shouldn't be noted on at all. The others we aren't sure of should also be ignored. --ケンジガール 16:01, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
AG179 or Slaking Kong has regular Slaking that are shown to barely be taller than the Vigoroth, and then at the end of the episode they are shown to be a foot larger than they were earlier in the episode. Is this Trivia/Error, or is it not notable? G50 02:00, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Well if they change in size in the episode itself it would be an error. Like this. --ケンジガール 06:54, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. G50 06:59, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Vanilluxe in BW081

The first line of the official summary of the episode says - "As Ash and his friends head towards the harbor, they happen upon the Dragon Buster Georgia and the "Blizzard Pokémon" Vanilluxe." It looks like it's indicating that its hers, or is it not enough to confirm that it's hers? G50 01:52, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Not really. It could just be around where she is which makes more sense given the plot. --ケンジガール 06:54, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. G50 06:59, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Pinot Noir's Purrloin

Did Purrloin know another attack aside from Fury Swipes and Night Slash? G50 11:52, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

It picked up sand and threw it in Crustle's eyes so I assume that's Sand-Attack. I don't know if it used anything else. --ケンジガール 11:54, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
Should I hold off on putting the info down for Sand-Attack (Move)? G50 11:56, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
I guess leave it out for now but I'm pretty sure that's what it is. --ケンジガール 12:02, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Something that's irked me

Hey KG. When I was adding pictures to the CotD page, I noticed there is a severe lack of consistency with the file names. I wanted to talk to you and Kogs about it. Kogs suggested "File:<character> <epicode>.png," and frankly, I agree. It's concise and to the point. It's to help if there's more than one character with the same name in the same series/region. That applies to images of younger characters too. "File:<character> <epicode> young.png." What's your opinion on the issue? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:21, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Is that for all characters or just the ones in the same region with the same name? --ケンジガール 07:27, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
All. Also, there's nothing set for name prefixes. As in there are files that are "File:Mr. ____.png" as well as "File:Mr ____.png" Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:31, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
I guess it's alright. Though that's going to be a heck of a lot of work. I'm taking it this is not going to be for characters who appeared in multiple episodes? --ケンジガール 07:36, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Well it's nothing final. We can discuss further next time you get on AIM. I just didn't want to risk forgetting like I usually do. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:39, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Don't mean to but in but I agree that the images on Bulbapedia need to have a better system of naming.
Example File:Mine Badge.png makes sense and is clear & to the point. However, it would be better as File:Mine Badge Game DP.png or File:<name> <media> <version/episode>.png instead. That way it won't conflict with it's anime counterpart if a picture was added. You could have File:Mine Badge Game DP.png and File:Mine Badge Anime DP108.png without worry.
However the File:<character> <epicode>.png system would only really work for Characters of the Day, not characters who show up multiple times or across multiple media platforms (game anime manga ect.)
File:<name> <character type> <age> <media> <version/episode> <image number>.png would make a lot more sense.
Example File:Byron Gym Leader Game DP.png would be a lot more better then the current File:Diamond Pearl Byron.png
Also for all the Silvers out there, the system would help immensely dampen the confusion.
File:HeartGold SoulSilver Silver.png would become File:Silver Rival Game GSHGSS.png File:Silver Adventures.png would become File:Silver Main Manga Adventures.png
File:Silver SS018.png would become File:Silver COtD Anime SS018.png and File:Young Silver.png would become File:Silver COtD Young Anime SS018.png

Shipping Splitshipping (Clay x Elesa)

I'm crazy at the moment from being up too long. Anyways, I have a friend who likes to ship people into largely homosexual relationships Lance x Silver, Koga x Surge Karen x Clair ect.

Well for some reason I was looking at Burgh, Elesa and Clay's Badges on the Badge Page. For a second Burgh x Elesa popped into my mind, but then I remembered he's a fashion designed and my friend would likely pair in up with a guy. Then I was like, Well Elesa likes fashion so she'd probably go for someone rich...then Clay popped into my head.

this caused me to Google what it was called, which according to my results was Splitshipping.

I looked up the shippers list but didn't see anything. So i thought since you often ship you would be the best person to come to for this. I'm not sure what qualifies ships to have articles made but at the very least you can add it to your list. well this time i am really off to bed. Yamitora1 15:03, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

My list is for anime shippings only. You can ask ArcToraphim if you can add it to the Shipping:List of game shippings or the Shipping:List of shippers. --ケンジガール 21:49, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

BW059

The voice of Gothorita seemed to come out of nowhere in the middle of the fight+music, which is why I think it's an error. It isn't enough to be considered an error? G50 02:06, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

If I recall correctly, it was trying to talk to the duo through its incantations. --ケンジガール 02:11, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
Gothorita's voice was silent after it initially began the chanting. The Kami Trio were fighting with music, a brief moment of Gothorita's voice cut in, and then it was back to music while the fight continued. The voice wasn't heard again until after Gothorita was hit by an attack. G50 02:16, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Brock's Steelix

Is it worth a Featured Article Candidate? In my opinion, it isn't. Mainly because it doesn't have to, just because it's complete doesn't mean it automatically becomes worthy. What are your thoughts?--ForceFire 14:34, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

I'd appreciate, Force Fire, if you didn't apoligize for my mere presence on ArcToraphim's talk page, furthermore the articles status should be determined the same way as all others. I've read both the criteria page and the how to nominate page and their is nothing that says I can't nominate an article. The nure joy article was nominated by a very new user who did not speak to an admin and it recieved a vote and is being considered Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 14:42, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

More Shippings

I saw your list of shippings, but what about A home for dwebble? Cilan was holding Pansage when he was sick (suffering temporar brain trauma too). What about a Chili/pansear shipping didn't Chili hug Pansear in A call for Brotherly love? And a shipping for the subway bosses and Cilan, Emmet mentioned he was their "favorite Metro Conoisseur" this implies there was a possible brotherly bond between them and Cilan.

Rivals

Kg, I don't think Harrison, Tyson, Solidad and Tobias should be there (in the rivals section).

Category:Episodes focusing on...

You told me to come to you and ask about these, so I gonna pitch a few characters that may be in need of one, if their fans wanted easy accsess to all their episodes or somthing ^_^

The characters I really feel should have one are Oak, Drew, Harley and Zoey, so I've counted all the episodes and side stories that focus on them, I've also counted other character's for you

Oak: 14 Drew: 14 Harley: 12 Zoey: 12 Kenny: 6 Nando: 6 Cynthia: 7 Barry: 7 Ursula: 5 Burgundy: 2 Stephan: 6 Georgia: 3 Luke: 4 Ash and Friend's family: 17 Gym Leaders (Not including the final gym battle): 43 (Including Gym Battle): 83

I counted the ones where Ash did not win a badge to make sure it would be a different list to "Episodes where Ash obtain's a badge.

Frontier Brains: 15 Pokemon Rangers: 8

I also think we should list the movies in these categories, such as Oak in M04, Max in M06 and May in M09.

I don't mean to say all of these need categories, but some do, some have more than Togepi and Tracey even. Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 02:48, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Well Tracey and Togepi are main characters. ANd I thought Zoey had a category... Yeah, I wanted one for Oak for a while. So what I can say yes for is Oak, Zoey, Kenny, Harley, and Barry. I would not rather give categories to characters like Cynthia.
For episodes focusing on gym leaders, etc. I'd like to think about it for a while. The rest of the characters you suggested I don't believe are quite ready. And I think we should leave the movies out of the categories. --ケンジガール 04:08, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Dragon Rush

Just wondering, but is there any harm for me putting Dragon Rush for Iris's Dragonite's moves? I had it hidden so when the episode airs, it could be unhidden. If it is somehow wrong, people could just remove it when the episode airs. I don't see harm in keeping it there if it's hidden. Well, your call anyways. Torpoleon (talk) 21:10, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Allowing you to add that will allow others to add what they think the move is thus creating unnecessary traffic. Since we don't know what it is we should leave it alone. --ケンジガール 21:14, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

My Page

I wanted to ask you,because I am new here,what do I need to do to edit my userpage?.thank you --Alexsummer (talk) 21:33, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

VA stuff

Can you recheck the voice actor/actress that plays Benny Demario since the one on the page now was something heard by ear? PattyMan 01:38, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

The no playing by ear thing really refers to the TPCi voice actors since we now have means to find out. Basically dub episodes from DP053 to present. Since this character appeared under 4Kids dubbing, I wouldn't know who to ask. --ケンジガール 02:35, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Okay then, that wouldn't apply. Were you able to find out the voice actor for Bianca's Emboar? PattyMan 22:51, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup

Hi Kenji-girl.As I saw the free edit in Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup article I thought to edit it adding the first round classifications;like Iris vs Georgia some images and writing the winner.This would make more meaning for the viewers and would make the page more attractive.What do you think? Alexsummer (talk)

It follows how the other Unova tournaments are and shouldn't be changed. Also we have someone working on a new format for all tournament articles. --ケンジガール 03:47, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Kenji-girl. I wanted to ask you, where and how do you find (or make) these HD images. I'd be thankful if you answer Dragon skull (talk) 17:28:14, 12 August (UTC)

Pokemon image change

Hi Kenjigirl.I wanted to ask you If you please could change the image file of:Ash's leavanny, unfezant ,oshawott, misty's togetic,goldeen and corsola and any of dawn's pokemon, because you know how to find screenshots and them are hd ,so I think you could do that.It has been some time from the airing of the episodes which the screenshoots are respective with,and I think you know how to find some other screenshoots images.So will you?And thank you very much! Alexsummer 05:15, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

I don't think the images are in need of being changed. --ケンジガール 07:58, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Caserin and Luverin

Hi again.Shouldn't Caserin and Luverin have different pages? They belong to different trainers.What do you think? Alexsummer 06:57, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

They did have separate pages but they were merged. The staff decided that they didn't appear enough to have separate articles. --ケンジガール 07:58, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Ok,thank you for replying.But I have another question.Might an article about the Ralts that Max benfriended to be created,because Ralts had a main role in that episode and Max made a promise to her.What do you think? Alexsummer 08:07, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
That's another one that had an article but was deemed unnotable by the staff. --ケンジガール 08:30, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
That's what I don't get. If a named human character is in an episode, they get an article, no matter how big the role they play is. However, if its a Pokémon, they don't get an article, no matter how big the role they play is. The Ralts that Max befriended had a much larger role than, say, the other participants in the Clubsplosion tournament and they have articles, while Ralts doesn't. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 09:17, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Yeah,you'r right dragon.I agree with you.Kenjigirl how can be deemed unnamable an article about a major role like ralt's for example?I mean,in a future episode ralts can join max's team and when it happens ralts wil get it's own article.Also is the same with Blissey that befriended Jessie.Ash befriended aura sphere riolu and it has his own article.max said that he wants to start his jorney with ralts,this is way I think so.Alexsummer 11:39, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

They've only appeared in one episode and are no longer in their possesions (in Jessie's case, though it really never belonged to her). Basically, befriended Pokémon don't get their own articles, Aura Sphere Riolu has an article because it appeared in both the anime and the game and plays an important role in both.--ForceFire 11:50, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

What I'm saying though is characters of the day get articles - unless the character of the day is a Pokémon. I think that this is wrong and that Pokémon CotD should also get articles. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:13, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Force Fire, if you remember Getty from the Clubsplosion,although he was a charachter of the day , has he done anything imporant to get his own article,despite being brother of Betty and Angus and owning a Simisear? And I forgot to say about Caserin, there are many pokemon belonging to main charachters tha doesn't appear often and own their own article .I suggest to have a poll about Ralts and if we get enought votes we create the Ralts article if we don't we don't create it .

What do you think guys? ★Alex★ Water 10:32, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Well, I personally think that the whole "Characters of the day get articles, as long as they are human. If the CoD is a Pokémon, it doesn't get an article" thing is total BS. All Characters of the day should get articles, even if they are Pokémon. Therefore, the Ralts falls under this. It was a CoD in its own sense. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:17, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
This is something that should really be discussed on the forums. My fellow staff votes outweighed my own vote so complaining here won't do you any good. Also there are exceptions to the rule like Puka and Orville so it's not all of them. --ケンジガール 13:05, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
I again agree with you Solardragon.You're right Kenjigirl.I also think is better in the forums.Thank you anyway. ★Alex★ Water 19:17, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Permission

Since we are renaming the CotD articles and we have already renamed the movie Pokemon characters, is it okay if we rename these 4 movie characters, and replace the 'movie' part with the actual movie number for consistency? Awaiting for your reply. AdynizWanna talk? 18:14, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

The only reason I suggested a move for the CODs is because the characters were part of the same saga and had the same name. Both of those Tommys could be referred to as "Tommy (Hoenn)". With the characters you listed, they are the only ones in all the movies. Ex: there isn't another Melody in another movie. If there was then I'd agree. That's why the Pokémon were treated differently as there is Mew (M01) and Mew (M08).
Moving the characters would be like moving Ruby (anime) to "Ruby (EP094)". There's no need for it. --ケンジガール 23:46, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Despite there being no other Arceus, Deoxys, Darkrai etc. in any other movie, they have the movie number in their names, {{Moviecharacters}} for the reference. And I think they should be named that way. It would be a bit more sophisticated naming style, in my opinion. AdynizWanna talk? 00:29, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
People shouldn't be treated the same as Pokémon in my opinion. Putting the numbers next to the human names on the template would look ugly to me. If we don't do this with anime characters we shouldn't do it with the movie characters either unless it's necessary. --ケンジガール 00:49, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
Understood. AdynizWanna talk? 01:22, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Goldeen trivia

Goldeen actually exceeds Palpitoad, Goldeen was absent for 34 episodes straight while Palpitoad only had 33. Also when I originally but down the trivia, I discluded Team Rocket's pokemon. However I checked it and the only Pokemon to have a longer absence whilst still on a current main character's team, is indeed Likitung. What do you think we should do about this trivia? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 08:22, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Just to place my 2cents on this, what about Brock's Onix and Geodude? Surely they have surpassed lickitung in terms of absence.--ForceFire 10:39, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
If my math is right, Geodude made it to 35 (EP196 - EP231), Onix to 26, Zubat to 26. --Spriteit (talk) 10:57, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Matori's English name?

I just thought I'd raise this as a suggestion, because it may very well be the only chance we ever get at this. Since you talk to Tom Wayland from time to time to fill out English dub names and voice actors, do you think you could ask him about Matori/Giovanni's secretary's English name or lack thereof? It just struck as something unusual we've never had resolved with the end of Team Rocket possibly at hand soon. --The Great Butler (talk) 04:56, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Have you read the top of this page? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 19:03, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
We don't need a poll. Ralts doesn't need a page as decided by the EB. The best thing you can do is go to the bulbapedia forums and create a section about it like I said to do in the section of Caserin and Luverin. --ケンジガール 04:48, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok kenjigirl.I'll do that.
And Diamond Lanturn as for your question , of course that I read the top of page, but did you read the section of Caserin and Luverin,where some of us discussed about this? ★Alex★ Water 11:15, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Official Orange Islands, Sevii Islands and New Island map

I found this official map with the Sevii Islands, New Island and the Orange Islands. It's part of File:RegionsMoviesMap.jpg, which is an anime map of all the movie locations up to the 10th movie. I don't have the access to it to Bulbagarden Archives and I also lack the knowledge to add it to the Orange Archipelago article and I wonder if you can do that for me. I also posted this on your Archives usertalk page on 11th June, but I guess you didn't see that.

Here's the map (it's the biggest I managed to find): [1]

Kami Trio in the anime

I have a question about the Kami Trio, well, a couple. Is it possible that the Kami Trio appearing in next week's episode is the same trio that appeared on Milos Island, for one? Kensuke Sato, Unsho Ishizuka and Kenta Miyake voice both sets, which is one thing that makes me think this, and I don't think an entire legendary trio has each had two individual sets appear in the same region. If this is determined to be the case, do you think it might be warranted to make a "Kami Trio (anime)" page? I'd say they'd be more important than Hippopotas, as they've been the subjects of two major arcs. --The Great Butler (talk) 07:42, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Kami trio

Surely the kami trio that just appered are the same ones from Milos island, firstly they used the same moves and secondli, it makes perfect sense. I think to say that is speculation is like assuming the Persian that appered with Giovanni was a different one to what appeared in the OS, after all, he has two Kingler. Therefore, I suggest we have a Kami trio (anime) page, similiar to the Lake Guardians (anime) page Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 00:27, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Well, if legends make two appearances, they aren't necessarily the same one...er, trio. For instance, the Mew from M08 wasn't the same one that appeared in M01. Although you may be right, I don't think we have quite enough evidence to assume that. This is just my opinion, though. We will just have to see what KG says. (Which could take quite a while.) サトシ101 (talk) 22:30, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
If they are indeed the same three Pokémon, then they can have a page. --ケンジガール 07:16, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Henrietta Million

Thought i'd fill you in that there are a few characters form the 4kids dub and one from TPCI dub that have misinformation on the English Voice Actor, those characters being Tommy's mother from ep034, Masae from ss014, and Old Woman Sinnoh. I have downloaded their respective episodes years ago and am fixing who it is, my source is the credits of the episodes. i tried to find the sight but they deleted the files in 2010, so couldn't link you to them. but Annie doesn't lie, all three characters are voiced by Henrietta Million, and that's that. if i find any from the later PUSA dub from the varaviable episodes, i'll let you know. and also there is no guesswork involved at all in this as especially in the case of Masae, Bella Hudson's name is not in the Pokemon Chronicles episode credits in question, while Henrietta Million's name is, unless the data is flawed in the credits, they were recorded from YTV according to what i remember of the file discriptions, though i downloaded them 3 years ago spacifficly for the purposes of helping you guies out to fill in missing or incorect information. thanks. Christian Woods Azu! 04:43, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Misinformation in m05

Also please inform the staff of the Internet movie database that Tara Jayne is the voice of Bianca and not Lisa Ortiz, later, i will correct this in the article, thanks, and best wishes. Christian Woods Azu! 04:54, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Cedric Juniper

This is regarding the part where it says that Cedric Juniper has the habit of not completing his sentences. I stated my disagreement on the talk page but nobody has responded for a long time. My disagreement regarding his habit is that when I watched the episode, the main characters interrupted him when he was in the middle of saying something. Also, he would not get upset about it everytime as if he didn't get interrupted. PattyMan 00:22, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Tiffany Darwish

Sinse i can't link the facebook messages, i decided to copy the archive i have of the interview, blanking out my real name. here it is: Real name blanked out: @ 3:21 PM So in regards egards to voice acting, I understand you’ve done the voice of Judy Jetson in Jetsons the movie. Is this the only voice work you’ve done as of late? Tiffany Darwish: @ 3:28 PM No, I did two characters on Pokemon, I did most Glameows, in which I tried to capture the same voice that Ikue Otahni did, and I also did a roll in the episode Where’s Armaldo, doing Annie Proctor. I enjoyed both rolls but I don’t know if I’m going to do voice over in the show again as my schedule is somewhat busy lately.

that's the best i can do, and she wouldn't lie. Also i have a friend who has watched the japanese version of For the Love of Meowth withMamie's glameow, and it sounds slightly different as a glameow than in the japanese version as well, even i can tell it's a different voice actor even if she is trying to sound like otahnni. Backing that up with Tiffany's statement that she voiced most glameow, that's the best i can do. Unless you're implying that Zoey's glameow is one of the exceptions, is it? please let me know, and i'll send to tiffany later on today, thanks. Christian Woods Azu! 08:11, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Christian Woods Azu! 08:04, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
All I know is that Zoey's Glameow is definitely the same in Japanese in episodes 11, 12, 34, and 41 which are the ones I compared. I never watched the Mamie episode in English so I have no opinion. There is someone on my end I can contact about this who knows the cast inside and out. I'll ask him about it. --ケンジガール 09:31, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Will do. thanks. Christian Woods Azu! 10:10, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Well I received an email from Tom Wayland, the voice director of the anime. He says that not only does Tiffany Darwish not voice Glameow but she's never voiced for the series. All Glameow keep their Japanese voice. Sorry but I'm have to going to believe him over her. --ケンジガール 05:17, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

hmmm, i wonder what about Annie Proctor? i don't like things being unknown and i will find out who does it even if i have to destroy this earth. (can't remember the movie i'm referencing, something about aliens) anyway, i've got a few questions for him myself regarding several things, is there a way i can contact him, i've been trying to find his e-mail for a year now and i'm not getting any luck. PS, hope sandy's victoms are doing well. Christian Woods Azu! 09:23, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry but my way of contacting him is confidential. I promised him I wouldn't give it away. As far as he knows Tiffany Darwish hasn't performed in Pokémon. --ケンジガール 09:46, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

The reason why i doubt him for the case of Annie Proctor is because of two factors: 1. her voice and 2. just because her name is not in the credits for that episode doesn't meen she isn't in that episode. i mean, a good deal of the AG episodes with the exception of chronicles list the exact same credits in them. do you have a bulbagarden account like me? i've got some questions for tom regarding me being a voice actor on Pokemon in the future. Christian Woods Azu! 19:10, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

It's not about credits. He says that she didn't perform. You can never be sure just by going by the voice. And the method of contact he gave me is only so I can ask him about who voices who. He made that pretty clear. --ケンジガール 01:33, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
I suppose i understand why. i wouldn't want a whole bunch of people sending me a bunch of questions either. i really hope that he sees that i admire the pokemon voice actors and that i give props to him for bringing back Kerry Williams and Stan Hart, i know it's a futile hope, but i'm hoping that either Amie Birnbom, Tara Jayne, Veronica Taylor (yes i said it), Rachael Lillis, or Nathan price returns. I'd even be happy with Rebecca Honnig or Peet Zerustica, but i give props to him for the VAs he brought back. thanks. Also i'd really like to help ad the voices to character pages. i have a good ear and am really interested in voice acting, thanks and sorry for the length.
