Based on its big strong appearence and it's Fighting secondary type, I'm wondering if it could be based off a Wrestler like how Futachimaru has been stated to resemble a Samurai in training. Also, while I'm at it, could Janoby and Tsutarja be based off of French royalty wiht its overall majestic appearence and attitude? --Landfish7 12:31, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

It's pretty much confirmed that Janoby is based off French royalty. n:Pokémon Pia information begins to surface. Due to your statement below, then it probably is. --SnorlaxMonster 13:12, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Name Origin

Could its name also be based of the Chinese word for wrestle, jiāo? --Landfish7 12:37, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, it's meant to be Chinese, so it probably is based off a Chinese word. And it does look like a wrestler. So I'd say that it is. --SnorlaxMonster 13:12, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
So can I add it? I'm assuming so. --Landfish7 22:06, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Probably, but comparing with the sound of "chāo" or "qiāo", "jiāo" doesn't really sound close to chao. Also, the Chinese word for wrestling is actually 摔角 shuāi​jiǎo (also 摔跤 shuāijiāo). The word "跤" itself only means "to fall" or "to tumble". 神奇超龍 12:43, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Has anybody noted the similarities between Chaobu and Blaziken?

I was just wondering if anybody noticed the similarities between Chaobu and Blaziken. First, it is a dual Fire/Fighting type and it has rings on its wrists. Blaziken remake with a pig? Am I the only one who sees this? --Pokemon26 00:26, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

I see no resemblance whatsoever other than the typing Ataro 00:39, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't think pics like that are enough evidence. A proper scan or article that references the name is needed. --jda95 06:33, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Who is this guy and how does he have English BW? Otherwise, I don't trust him. --SnorlaxMonster 06:46, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

actually he claims he knows every name of every gym leader and cities cuz he got pokemon black early!Badwolf1234 07:05, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

How did he do that? --SnorlaxMonster 07:21, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Actually i don't know but he claims he got an early delivery of pokemon black and he proves it with a picture of his game and he answers question about pokemon black.Badwolf1234 07:29, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
It seems he is a reviewer for a fansite and got a pre-release review copy. We should still take this with a grain of salt, as it still isn't quite official enough.--jda95 08:01, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
What? "Pignite" is not only list-confirmed and Serebii-confirmed, but Tympole and Timburr were also moved because of Nintendo blogger. And why'd he make fake pictures?----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 08:49, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Well, this isn't exactly as official as the official blog. FYI, he has a forum thread here where he's answered questions about the game, and he's revealed all of the town names as well as those of the Gym Leaders. --jda95 08:55, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Anyway, he wouldn't make fake pictures.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 09:10, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
I think we can trust him then. And we don't base anything on Serebii confirmed (which is based on that list anyway). I know the list is almost certainly legit, but we are waiting for official confirmation on the names. --SnorlaxMonster 09:23, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Serebii's list isn't based on the original list, BTW; that's why he had Zen Mode and Keldeo/Meloetta/Genesect.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 09:27, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

I think it's plenty of evidence. If not, here is another source. [[3]]
