Japanese Blue

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.

001 Bulbasaur
R B Y G S C FR LG HG SS
Grass Grass
1 100%

Hopefully this can work with the Pokémon that appear in all four generations with Kanto with the same rarity. - unsigned comment from SeanWheeler (talkcontribs)

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.

Any thoughts or second opinions? PalletTownie (talk) 03:51, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

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.
