Holo Caster News Announcer

Isn't Malva the woman who appears on the Holo Caster with breaking news during the Looker sidequests as well as news from the Global Link? Yveltal0003 (talk) 13:55, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Malva appears as a Holo Caster anchor, but I am not sure if she broke the news during the Looker sidequests, though she is the one to do so in front of the Poké Ball Factory and the Holo Cast announcements anchor. --Super goku (talk) 16:59, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

When I completed them, she definitely reported the painting being vandalised and Essentia stealing peoples' Pokémon Yveltal0003 (talk) 07:27, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Torkoal

Malva's Torkoal knows Flame Wheel, a move it cannot learn in the games (as far as I know). Should this be mentioned in the trivia? (I don't want to add it without permission.) DynamoDuskull (talk) 05:48, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Just checked, and there is no mention of Flame Wheel in Torkoal's movepool. I'd add it. Yveltal0003 (talk) 16:57, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Torkoal learns Flame Wheel at level 23. Mr.Anonymous (talk) 09:30, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Name

Malva's Japanese name would be "Pakira" as it's written now. Was this an error one way or the other? --BobLogical (talk) 01:57, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

No reply in four days. I'm going to go ahead and change it to "Pakira" unless someone can explain what's up. --BobLogical (talk) 01:32, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

GAME FREAK romanises things differently than a "proper" romanisation. For example, "Nyarth" instead of "Nyasu". Pikachu Bros. (talk) 01:46, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
See Malva#Names. Names are something you should generally refrain from messing with unless you're sure what you're suggesting is what Game Freak wanted. Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:49, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Just to explain (since GF's got little to do with the spelling at the moment), Pachira is pronounced with a 'k' sound, which is why パキラ has キ and not チ, because in English, the 'ch' is rendered 'k'. Loanwords in Japanese use characters as close to its original pronunciation as possible, and its roman-character spelling has little influence. Ultimately, it's like how our article on Iris was at Iris and not Airisu...because Iris is a loanword. Kai * the Arc Toraph 02:05, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Rank

Malva's butler refers to Malva as a former Team Flare Admin so shouldn't that be incorporated in the page? Mariofan99 (talk) 01:30, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Is this trivia worthy?

I noticed that Malva is the only one of the Kalos Elite Four to not have a Pokémon in her party that can Mega Evolve. Siebold has Gyarados, Wikstrom has Scizor, Drasna has Altaria and Diantha has Gardevoir. Is this worth mentioning in her trivia section? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 16:40, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Houndoom Voice Actor

The cast list for XY136 lists Kiyotaka Furushima as voicing Houndoom and Malva's is the only one to appear in the episode so I assume Kiyotaka Furushima voices her Houndoom https://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/viewep/2008/Comments--BigDocFan (talk) 17:44, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

We can't accept fansites as voice actor sources. Only official sources are acceptable. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:19, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that cast list is pulled straight from the Japanese episode's credits, so it would be a reliable source. Technickal (talk) 18:01, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
