I think there are too many unofficial series. How about we group the games by genre? For example, the Stadium games, Colosseum, XD, and Battle Revolution fall into the Competition genre, according to Nintendo and TPC (I know they're not consistent but it would make more sense).

IMO the page is currently divided very sensibly. If anything, I'd almost want to introduce some sort of extra organization under the Other section. (Off the top of my head, perhaps by console or soemthing.)
Regarding the above example, I personally don't like grouping the Stadiums with Colosseum/XD. The story has always been the main aspect of the latter two in my mind, and the Stadium games just don't have that at all. (FWIW, I hardly know PBR at all.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:55, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Wizards of the Coast

Why isn't the card game that wizards of coast had on their website back in the early 2000s on here? It was brower-based, but maybe someone has a copy of it. I don't remember whether it used shockwave or not. --Sandrew26 (talk) 13:28, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

"Side series"

What exactly does the phrase "side series" mean in reference to Pokémon games? The first line of this article links to a "side series" article, but the article doesn't actually exist (it just redirects back here). Moreover, some articles appear not to make a distinction between "spin-off" and "side series" games, whilst others do. Pale Prism (talk) 00:05, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

I wanted to ask the same question.--Rocket Grunt 16:25, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
Shouldn't this be fixed? Because Stadium falls under "side series" and, as Pale Prism stated, the page doesn't exist, Stadium isn't even listed anywhere on the site. Why not add all "side series" games to the spin-off games page? --Dundeey (talk) 23:23, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

I feel like side series refers to games that have to do with core series games like stadium being able to directly link with Pokémon red and blue and providing rewards for the core game Mego17 (talk) 00:38, 8 January 2023 (UTC)

I just checked the side series section and it includes Pokémon bank and home as well as stadium and coliseum so I think it means companion games that are in some way connected to the core series like to transfer Pokémon or providing rewards Mego17 (talk) 00:42, 8 January 2023 (UTC)
