Magmar and Metronome
Just looked it up on several sites, including Bulbapedia, and none of them say Magmar learn Metronome. I don't have LG to go see if it's true, but if a lot of sites say it.. then no. Tina☆♥♫ 00:48, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
You can't just "decide" that a name that is seen only by closed captioning is not a character's name and make moves like that. Melodi is the only known English name for the character in question. It doesn't matter who came up with it or how it was presented, if a character has an English name, the article should be at said English name. By your logic, Karsten would be at Kazuo since his name only appeared through the closed captioning as well. The only case in which we should be moving such articles to different names is if English DVD subtitle options showed something different, and official DVDs aren't available for Battle Frontier, much less Diamond and Pearl.
Additionally, if one were to look through the closed captioning and find a dub name for either the backpack-switching thief or Cissy's brother, that would be considered an actual English name and, as such, moves would be made. After all, it's thanks to closed captioning that we know that it's spelled Puka and Mandi, not Pooka and Mandy!
Long story short: Don't make moves that can potentially cause an uproar. Uproars were made over moves of Pokémon Trainer to Pokémon Trainer (trainer class) and then the former being turned into a disambig to accomodate the playable Pokémon Trainer in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and I'd hate for uproars to be made over things as one mention in closed captioning. --Shiningpikablu252 21:41, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Ending this edit war
Look; I know the Closed Captioning should not be trusted 100%. However, they are the best thing we have in regards to the names of specific characters. That and the subtitles on Pokémon from the DVDs (which are the same, by the way) are the only way some characters' names (Krystal, Melodi, Karsten, etc.) are able to be figured out, since the episode does not name them. I know it may not seem accurate, but that's how it's done on Bulbapedia, which is why your edits were reverted. --PAK Man Talk 03:49, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
I saw EP082 and EP083 while they ran on Kids WB. I clearly remember Pokémon Theme playing for those two episodes, with Pokémon World debuting for EP084. I don't get how you're saying Pokémon Theme for EP082 and EP083 is a Cartoon Network-only thing when many people clearly remember Pokémon Theme for the two episodes in question when Kids WB aired it.
In fact, if they were to have changed the opening prior to EP084, EP081 would have been the place to do it, since that's when the Japanese counterparts did their changing of the guard. --Shiningpikablu252 02:49, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
- Shiningpikablu is correct. I too remember when that happened. In fact, Pokémon's official web site even promoted the new theme song a week before EP084 aired.
- Also, it's never a good idea to revert an administrator's edits, because usually know what we're talking about. --PAK Man Talk 23:42, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
