: It's because the guidebook artwork has the little ship that takes you to the islands going east, so people tend squabble over whether it's east (like the picture) or south (like the in-game text), so it's just easier to say southeast. --[[User:Greengiant|Greengiant]] 01:46, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

::That's stupid. Why does SeaGallop have to be Sevii-exclusive? There can easily be islands or other landmasses to the east. Does the S.S. Tidal only go to Lilycove and Salteport? No, it also goes to other places, like the Battle Frontier. So, why can't the SeaGallop? I vote that southeast is replaced with south. - [[User:Jonah|Jonah]] 01:58, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Is there a reason why we're using the names found on the signboards instead of on the town maps and menus for the islands? (Or does it differ by version?) - 振霖T 09:43, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Y'mean Knot, Boon, Kin, etc.? Well, I can't speak for those who made the articles, but I would assume the signboard names are the proper names of the islands, and One, Two, Three, etc. are used on the map and menus for simplicity's sake. --Pie 02:11, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Name origin?

Nanashima means "seven islands", but what about the vii in the English "Sevii"? Could it be from the Roman numeral VII, seven? --TTEchidna 04:00, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

East and southeast?

Why east?

Bill says: "There's this little island in the far south called One Island."

Far south, as opposed to east. I've always thought of that as further south than the Orange Islands, so them both being south wouldn't be a problem.

It's because the guidebook artwork has the little ship that takes you to the islands going east, so people tend squabble over whether it's east (like the picture) or south (like the in-game text), so it's just easier to say southeast. --Greengiant 01:46, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
