Redirects

Please don't make misspelling redirects with the (Pokémon) or (Pokemon) parenthesis, there's no need for it as no one is going to search for those misspellings and add the parenthesis at the end. It also encourages misspelling whenever someone uses the {{p}}, i.e. they'll see the blue link and think that they've spelled it right.--ForceFire 09:00, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Calem/Serena age

Hi. Can you explain to me as specifically as possible how you're getting Calem/Serena's ages? Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:20, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

In the Japanese version of the game, Emma refers to the player with older pronouns (as in they're older than her), but other characters still refer to them as kids, which would mean Calem and Serena are in the 16-18 range. I included this in the summaries of when I first added their ages. Nintendocan (talk) 04:56, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
When I say specific, that means I would also like to know the exact lines you are referring to. (In short, I want to be able to exactly trace your entire reasoning, not having to take your word at any particular point. No offense. Just looking for verifiability.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:02, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
To be clear, I mean Emma's lines as well as the lines of "other characters" you are referring to. (Thanks.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:05, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
I can't find an exact source for the Japanese part, but during Chapter 2 of the Looker sidequest, the children in the alleyway, including Emma, refer to the player (and Looker) as a grown-up. As for other characters, Professor Sycamore and Lysandre were two examples I could find of characters who refer to the player as a child. Considering Emma is 16 and refers to the player as a grown-up, but characters like Sycamore and Lysandre still refer to them as a child, this would likely mean they're between the ages of 16 and 18.

It'd be great if you could tell me where Emma specifically refers to the player as a grown-up. As far as I see, there's "Mimi gets scared pretty easy. Afraid of humans, I guess. Especially grown-ups.", but that could easily be about Looker only.
As far as the kids you battle in the alley first, I find it really hard to believe they'd make so careful a distinction between Emma and the player if they're within 3 years of age. I don't think that particular part was thought out that thoroughly in that regard, it was just...good enough for the majority of people who aren't gonna pick through everything with a fine-tooth comb.
