She's shown with a Chiramii. Yeah and? Oak introduced you to Kanto with a Nidoran, Johto with a Marill... it's just the Pokémon they chose to put in the opening. TTEchidna 22:39, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

i dont believe it says anywhere in the corocoro scans that Professor Araragi is the one who gives the player thier pokémon, we are just relying on what we know from previous generations and making assumptions. The latest trailer on the B&W website shows the starter pokéballs inside a decorative box, what looks like a gift, possibly from Araragi but most likely form the protagonist's family. just putting it out there...- unsigned comment from Mr-connor (talkcontribs)

I agree, we shouldn't make too many speculative assumptions. I think that the gift probably is from Professor Araragi, but we shouldn't assume this. --SnorlaxMonster 13:28, 5 September 2010 (UTC)


There is a male NPC in Black and White whose name is Araragi and knows the professor. I couldn't really understand his relationship to her. May be a husband/brother/father. Can someone check on that? --ケンジガール 22:21, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

I thought Adeku was her father..(or so I've heard...) Ataro 22:30, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
Apparently it's her father. --Psyライダー 22:32, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
And since it's her father, does this mean he should get a seperate article, or just be in this one? --User:Carrottime 10/31/10
Considering he has yet to make an appearance in the anime, I would leave him in the Professor Araragi heading for now, although it should be noted that he upgrades your pokedex in the game. --User:Inuichi December 16, 2010


I have a anime screenshot, but I am still unable to upload images, anyone know when the archives will be aviable again? DeadUniverse Hello! 12:20, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Should I put this in the article? DeadUniverse Hello! 09:11, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

It's a shame it isn't a picture of the whole scene (as in, you've cropped it), but it'll do for now. —darklordtrom 09:21, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Professor Hands out TM's

If go back to your hometown and have Professor Araragi evaluate your pokedex, she will reward you with TM's based on how many pokemon you have. I just received TM 17 from her with 77 pokemon, along with another TM I missed the number of. Perhaps this should be researched and added to her page?- unsigned comment from Inuichi (talkcontribs)

Bianca's Chaoboo?

Do we know for a fact that Bianca got her Chaoboo from Prof. Juniper? I mean, I know we know from the games, and I know that it is inferred in the anime (since it is assumed that most new trainers in a given region get their starter from the regional professor) but as far as I know, it was never explicitly stated that she got it as a Tepig from Professor Juniper, was it? I am confused, and I could be wrong, but please, some clarification on this issue would be appreciated. --JediKnightDTV 17:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Bianca said it herself. It's how she knows Juniper--Derenol232 18:03, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Shooti's Snivy/Janovy?

Okay, I understand that it was given as a Snivy. But it has since EVOLVED into Janovy, so it is not a Snivy anymore, just as Bianca's Chaoboo is not a Tepig anymore. How does it make sense to have it as Snivy, when it is not a Snivy anymore? --JediKnightDTV 18:07, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Problem is, your comparison is bad because Chaoboo was never shown in its initial form. Janovy was. --Derenol232 18:11, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

It doesn't matter, because my point still stands. It is a Janovy NOW, as of the most current Japanese episode, not a Snivy anymore. Besides, it is stated in Shooti's Janovy's article that he obtained it from Prof. Juniper as a Snivy. Also, if Bianca's Chaoboo was the Tepig that Ash and Shooti saw at Prof. Juniper's lab, then it was shown in it's initial form. Not saying that it was that same Tepig, as we do not know for sure, but it could have been. --JediKnightDTV 18:19, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

She didn't give a Janovy away, she gave a Snivy away. Case closed. You're also speculating about Bianca's Chaoboo, which isn't allowed--Derenol232 18:22, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Derenol1232 is right, we show the Pokémon at their basic stage and only if it was never shown at the stage it was given out at, do we put the evolved form e.g. Harrisons Blaziken and May's Torchic on Birch's page, Chaoboo is confirmed to be her starter and was confirmed to of evolved from Tepig, Bianca also comes from the same town so it is quite evident speculation Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:46, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

She was certainly not in BW001, and obtaining it afterwards would make it very hard to evolve it with her battling style in just 11 episodes--Derenol232 18:51, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Never said it was the one in BW001, and she had managed to get 2 badges so she can't be that bad Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:52, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Actually, Jediknight did
"Also, if Bianca's Chaoboo was the Tepig that Ash and Shooti saw at Prof. Juniper's lab, then it was shown in it's initial form."
That's why I mentioned that. The reason I mentioned her battling style is because I know someone's gonna mention Shooti's Snivy taking only 9, but Bianca and Shooti's battling styles are vastly different--Derenol232 18:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
To be honest, I actualy agree Bianca's Chaoboo should not really be on this page, because the best proof is when it is stated in the anime, no-matter how likely I'd say it should stay off but I have little power in the situation Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 19:05, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
It should stay the way it is. On all the other professors page it stays the form that was showed first. Like May's torchic will stay a torchic picture even though it evolved already. --Pokemaster97 19:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Bianca's Chaoboo has no business being here in the first place. I removed it myself once before. She never once said she received if from Juniper. Anyway, I think we should list Pokémon in the stage they were in when she gave it to them. Just like with other regular people. On Monica's page, it doesn't say she formerly took care of Mamoswine, but Swinub. --ケンジガール 21:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

XTransceiver Sprite

I thought that Professor Juniper has a XTransceiver Sprite. I think she had a 4 way conversation between the Bianca, Cheren and the Player. (Although I think it was really Juniper and Bianca, with two people listening in) - unsigned comment from Big Nutter (talkcontribs)

I'm pretty sure I've seen that sprite, but we don't seem to have it. --SnorlaxMonster 11:14, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
