Serebii's reported English names
Could you stop moving everything? Look, there's more than enough reason to believe that Serebii's pulling a large April Fool's joke. If you wait until tomorrow, then you can at least be sure whether or not it's real. But if it does turn out to be a hoax (which I'm fairly certain it will), you're just making a bigger mess for us to clean up later. Thank you. --Pie ~♪♫ 22:14, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Oops. Sorry, I was on a quest to add descriptions for status moves and mistook cdesc for bdesc. The former states that it would do in a contest, the latter what it does during battle. --Tinlv7
Speedy deletion criteria
It's not really a good idea to edit the page from one criteria for speedy deletion to another. "Talk:Matt" was initially nominated because it was a redirect to Talk:Aqua Admin Amber, a different Team Aqua Admin entirely. By blanking Talk:Matt, it now fit a different speedy deletion criteria: lack of content. Maybe if you'd brought up a legitimate comment instead of blanking the page, I wouldn't be posting this right now...--Shiningpikablu252 02:08, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
I thought Kasurin would come from Kasumi Loverin? The only page that Cuserin brings up is that one, but Kasurin has loads about it, and it seems the english name Caserin's spelling comes from it. Cooper 03:30, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Ignore the first sentence. Kasumi + rin, rin being a suffix used in nicknames (like this) meaning puny. Like I said though, that page is the only one Google finds for Cuserin that is Pokemon related. Kasurin is definately the most used translation of the name.
Saying that Cuserin is more likely as a name is your opinion, both have an equal chance because of the absence of an official translation. Since Kasurin is actually used, shouldn't it be on the page? There isn't any solid evidence for Cuserin, except speculation about it, but Kasurin is actually used. For simplicity's sake at least, shouldn't it be Kasurin? Cooper 04:37, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Why did you remove it then? Young kids found a page boring without a set of images? Come on.
- Maybe because people have been inserting links to bulbapedia every where they fricking can on wikipedia, and it's getting a bit ridiculous? Like for Miyako Itō, where the bulbapedia link is the FIRST one, and she's only had one pokemon role?

I'm sorry, but if you decided to change the Pulse Bomb title to Wave Bomb you should also change it on the List of Diamond & Pearl episodes page and the DP066 page. Pikastorm ぴか中 (16:46, 7 March 2008 (UTC))
- The title should be "Pulse Bomb". Because it needs to have consistency with the other attacks that has "Hadou" in it. The attacks are:
- Dragon PULSE ---------悪の波動 (りゅうのはどう)
- Dark PULSE -----------悪の波動 (あくのはどう)
- Water PULSE ----------水の波動 (みずのはどう)
- PULSE PULSE -----------波動弾 (はどうだん)
- . 脈拍｛みゃくはく｝、脈｛みゃく｝、脈動｛みゃくどう｝、鼓動｛こどう｝、振動｛しんどう｝、波動｛はどう｝
- . 爆弾｛ばくだん｝、爆発物
I don't think you should change the title to Aura Sphere "Pulse Bomb", he needs to change the Japanese title to Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, and Water Pulse. So Pulse Bomb is the correct title. Also it's not just "Lucario's Hadou", it is also Dialga's and Palkia's, Mewtwo's and Mew's Hadou, sense they can also learn "Aura Sphere". Pikastorm ぴか中 ( 23:04, 10 March 2008 (UTC))
- i don't. i can't choose, i like it, i don't. i'm just concerned about the other attacks with hadou (ex. water pulse, dragon ~ you get the idea, ) but are right about hadou and wave, so we should just use the 'pulse' because of the other attacks for consistency. i don't think YOUR title is bad....
In the future
In the future, when you disagree with an editorial member's decision, contact him or her and voice your opinion. By simply reverting the reversion you are asking for an editing feud, which is not only a bad idea in general, but also unwise when the member supersedes you in rank.
Given the fact that you clearly had no problem when the Platinum page previously made no mention of when Regigigas will be distributed, it strikes me as hypocritical on your part to suddenly be bothered by a minute difference of three or two days. For your information, "will be distributed" implies "at some unspecified date", and that is by far more inaccurate than "currently distributed". That said, I have agreed to state the actual date in the paragraph and leave it at that until the 20th.
I expect to see you revert the sentence back to the original phrasing come this Friday. If you sit by idly, you will have wasted my time with these so-called pedantics. Oh, I suppose you will be interested to know the exact time each of the Japanese retail stores will begin the promotion, won't you? -Unown Lord 06:34, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Why did you name your Noctowl Artemis? Athena would've made more sense, seeing as Athena was not only the ancient Greek goddess of wisdom (and Noctowl is stated to be very wise), but Athena was also said in Greek mythology to take the form of an owl. --Shiny Noctowl 04:28, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

...um. No. No need for "the". We don't have "The Scientist Gideon" or "The Boss Giovanni", and so on. No need for thes in Frontier Brain articles. They're just named "position name" because of the potential for need for disambig pages... like with Lucy. Pike Queen Lucy looks better than Lucy (Battle Frontier), and it's consistent among all of them. TTEchidna 05:05, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Here's the thing...
I understand that the merging of articles should be discussed, but in the case of Floaroma Meadow, there's really no case in favor of a merge. It's a nearby location, such as Solaceon Ruins, not part of the town. Nobody seems to agree with the guy who suggested the merge in the first place. - unsigned comment from Missingno.

I noticed that you translated this as "Teeter dance". I know that you know quite a bit of Japanese, but I might have to call you out on this one. The English name is "The Hula-la". I know that I don't know as much Japanese as you do, but I do believe that
(fu[hu])(ra)(fu[hu])(ra)(da)(n)(su) (Hula-Hula dance) would be a more accurate translation. What do you think? Thank you for your time. --RexRacer -talk 04:22, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
- He probably meant that the Japanese you translated the Japanese name for Teeter Dance as Teeter Dance, but on a card it was translated as "The Hula-la". He is just saying that he thinks your translation on here is not correct. MaverickNate 04:28, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Could you find the Japanese name for Cacophony? It'd be helpful. Also, could you fill in the jnames and jtrans of the 5th Movie Half Deck as well. I'm not sure if they are correct and most are not even done. Thanks in advance! ;) MaverickNate 03:11, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Where did you get such romanisation? It looks terrible! Is it official spelling? --Maxim 07:50, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
- True. Sonō was probably an error (since it is not ソノウ or ソノー) but I think Sono-o looks weird. I think Sonoo is better, even though it can be mispronounced (but, so can be "Fushigidane" and all other Japanese names). So I think it should be changed to Sonoo. Also, Sono-o is a nonstandard romanisation, not belonging to any conventional system. --Maxim 08:09, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

- Just standard - you see, every track on the list is supposed to have the track's name, the Japanese name, the artist's name, and the track's length. If some of those details are missing, they just weren't filled up yet. So we bold the track names so that they stand out from the rest. In this case, it makes the English names stand out from the Japanese names, but that's only because the other details are still missing. --electAbuzzzz 13:54, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Gamefreak's Romanizations for Movie Characters
I'm beggining to doubt that they'll anything to go by. This is just their own exact transliteration of Japanese characters, based on Kunrei-Shiki. For example シ becomes si, ツ becomes tu etc. Also, long mark becomes the space, which is especially annoying in that. Such transliterations are neither conventional, nor they make any sense. I'd say that we should trust GF filenames ONLY when they break the scheme. For example, "Albert", "Damos" or "Tap" are okay because they're not exact transliterations but seemingly intended Romaji spellings for those characters names. However, spellings like "Si Na", "Kebin" or "Gisin" are nothing more than nosense and blind transliteration of the Kana spelling. We prefer meaning-based transliterations to those. I'm advocating the usage of "Sheena", "Kevin" and "Gishin". They're not only aesthetically better but also better reflect what those characters' names are supposed to be. --Maxim 12:45, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Re: Reshiram and Zekrom Typings
I'm not exactly sure which admin to complain to but please tell me, when did unconfirmed speculation become fact? It has not been confirmed that Reshiram and Zekrom are going to be Dragon-type Pokémon. What do I mean by that? I mean that since the duo are called the "Legendary Dragon Pokemon", there is room for doubt that they will be Dragon-types. Why? Because it sounds like an excerpt from their Pokédex entries (I.e Pidgey is called the "Tiny Bird Pokemon" and the duo are called the "Legendary Dragon Pokemon"). Sure they may look like Dragons and all but so do Charizard, Gyarados and the other non-Dragon-types in the Dragon Egg group. It is not One-Hundred Percent confirmed that they are Dragon-types. Please remove the type listings for them as fan speculation does not equal fact. You could, perhaps put it as Trivia at the bottom of the page, stating that "though it is currently unknown what typing of Reshiram/Zekrom is, it is widely believed to be at least a Primarily Dragon-Type Pokémon." --Mackinz of SoulSilver 21:29, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

The hierarchy of 'correct' translation
First and foremost is the official release of that specific card. When that doesn't exist (Unreleased cards) the game is the most correct. If that doesn't exist, anytime that specific move appeared in the TCG is then used. Lastly, other than that, we translate it ourselves. Now, every rule has an exception, and this rule's exception is when Confusion causes paralysis (otherwise known as Psyshock) This has been decided as the most correct way. If you have any questions or concerns, bring it up with the Project Leader. MaverickNate 13:50, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure why you're changing the romanizations, or what was wrong with the ones we had before, but it would be great if you could just leave them alone for now.
