[email protected] is a popular fanon term
Fanon is an unconfirmed belief held by fans of a series.
How can such a term be fanon? - Jshadias 04:32, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

>Erm, because the game never revers to them as [email protected]? That's what I assumed, anyways. It's a name made for them by the fans. - Zeta

If it's a term made up by fans, how is it an "unconfirmed belief"? - Jshadias 05:15, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

>My point is that it's a fan creation, something that is usually associated fanon. And I guess you could say that it's "unconfirmed" because it's not official terminology. I don't know how you'd define it as a belief though. - Zeta


I agree with SnorlaxMoster. Move it to Eon duo, its more formal and looks better than [email protected] Anyone agree? Disagree? Opinions? ~たかはりい 09:36, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

I prefer something like "Legendary eons" really. I never really liked using trio, etc. for the legendaries. tc²₆tc26 10:30, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
"Legendary eons" just sounds weird; they're not "eons", they're the eon Pokémon. In some cases I agree that Trio, Duo, etc. don't work too well (such as with the Musketeer Trio/Quartet), but in this case I think Eon Duo would be an appropriate page title. [email protected] ought to just be a trivia note. --AndyPKMN (talk) 11:54, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Considering the general gist is that almost all "titles" we stick the legendaries under are fanon, [email protected] is highly appropriate. The fact it doesn't look nice or symmetrical with the rest should not be a factor, simple because these names are what people call them on a daily basis. No one calls them the "legendary eons", and "Eon duo" is grossly less used than [email protected] (1,600 google returns vs 7,000,000+). They are [email protected] to the fandom. I do not approve of a move simply to sate a more "official look". Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 12:39, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

The Legendary duo page lists them as the Eon Duo. And by your logic, why do we use Legendary Beasts (~2,800,000 Google results) when Legendary Dogs has far more results (~12,000,000). We've moved these sorts of pages based on what makes more sense before (such as with the horribly named "Raijin Trio") and I don't see why we couldn't do so here as well. --AndyPKMN (talk) 17:29, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually, Legendary Dogs has 172,000 return hits and Legendary Beasts has 240,000 hits on Google (Beasts win). Quotation marks = more accurate searches. The Kami trio was also in its infancy (hell, I was there), and any of the terms flying around were in short use so we could basically do what we wanted; same goes for the Taos/Musketeers. But going to change terminology that's been in play since, what 2004? Seven years? That's like renaming Smogon's tier system. And "[email protected]" is no footnote or trivia bit, either.

My bad; can't believe I forgot quotation marks. Nonetheless, I think Eon duo would be a better name for the page, and I do think that professionalism should take priority over popularity in a case like this. But obviously I'm in the minority, and I'm willing to accept that. --AndyPKMN (talk) 20:02, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
"[email protected]" is just as professional and encyclopedic as "Eon duo" by all technical accounts, given how both are not official terms in the slightest. Just because one has an @ symbol and isn't as uniform next to the other legendary blanket terms we (as a fandom) allotted doesn't mean we should change it, otherwise we'd say "screw canon" and change Lake Guardians back to "lake/pixie/whathaveyou trio" to command uniformity.

Eon Duo sounds a lot better than [email protected], How do you even say "[email protected]" Truthseeker4449 21:57, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
I have to agree with Truth Seeker on pronounciation; how do you even say that? Anyway, I have to vote to keep it where it is, because even with a redirect it would be more considerate towards the Pokémon fanbase in general to use [email protected], because people are familiar with it. I think it would help Bulbapedia's popularity/hits/PageRank/whatever people rate websites with nowadays in regards to search engine data, cleanliness, and basically because it's the one used most. Why move the entire page just because of a silly little "@" sign that we see in our e-mail programs every day? AlexTheRose 22:01, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
