Edit warring

Please do not continually revert an edit, it falls under edit warring and is a blockable offense. If you have a problem with an edit, you can bring it up on the talk page of the disputed article or the talk page of the user that reverted you. Cyndaquil is plain simply not a rat, not physically at least. Being the "Fire Mouse" Pokémon means nothing. The only thing Cyndaquil has in common with the mythological creature is the fire theme (since it's not a rat), which is too weak to make a comparison. Just because it's a fire type, doesn't mean any fire-related creature will do.--ForceFire 10:04, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

And as I pointed out, "mouse" and "rat" are used as umbrella terms for rodents in other languages, two of which are Chinese and Japanese. And no offense, but saying the category "doesn't count" is utterly obtuse. If a specific name was picked, there has to be a reason related to the conception of the Pokémon. Especially when in the original Japanese said category is exactly the Japanese name for the huo shu. Horo-kun (talk) 10:08, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Just because the Japanese category for Cyndaquil is the exact same as huo shu, doesn't automatically mean that it's a rat. That's just a coincidence. The design of the Pokémon is much more important than the category, especially when the design does not match the category. Sure, "rat" could just mean "rodent", but we can't really say that when Cyndaquil has clear physical traits of porcupines/echidnas.--ForceFire 10:27, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
I took this to the Discord group so the matter can be settled once and for all.Horo-kun (talk) 11:30, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, no. This conversation started here, it continues here, and it ends here. Not in the discord. I also take it that you didn't read my reply.--ForceFire 11:47, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
