I have an idea
Instead of separating by generation, can we make a catch entry template that merges all of Kanto's games? It can look something like this.
- Considering the differences in rarities, the fact that some games use night and day, the level differences, etc. this would be a huge mess of a template without some sort of fixing. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 22:51, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
I also have an idea, this one about Japanese Blue
Since some talks on pages about Generation I areas mention differences for the Japanese Blue Version, and since this is an encyclopedia, it might be a good idea to add a column about the wild Pokemon for that particular version.
Originally, I was thinking of adding a green column "G" for the Japanese Green/US Blue and making the current blue column "B" the Japanese Blue (which would match the table on Game-exclusive Pokémon for Gen I, but that might be a little confusing, especially for people new to Pokemon. Plus it might require a disclaimeer like on the above page to explain. So instead it might be better to add another blue-colored column with "B(J)", which would be easier for readers to understand.
Of course this would mean having to go through Kanto locations pages to update Gen I Pokemon, but with help from the Japanese Bulbapedia it should be a smoother, albeit time-consuming task.
- Sorry, if I had realized this page wasn't locked, I probably would have responded sooner to at least have a tempering voice.
- I'm honestly not sure we should care about Japanese Blue enough to put it in our tables. We're a wiki for the English games. The Japanese Blue games are very explicitly Japanese only; while it's easy enough for us to note a few differences here and there, like trades, I'm inclined to think that it's not worth it for us (again, an English wiki) to record ALL Japanese Blue encounters.

- You're probably right about all that, especially since fishing/surfing and items (I think) are exactly the same for Japanese Blue as it is for Red/Japanese Green/Int. Blue. I just figured if someone was really interested, they could have a quick way of looking it up. I meant to put them in more for trivia purposes rather than to be used as any kind of guide like much of Bulbapedia. I really appreciate your insight! PalletTownie (talk) 06:59, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
