Language

It's nice and all that you're trimming the trivia that we don't need, but could you not use such vulgar language? We are a children's site and a good majority of users and viewers might make up that demographic, so could you refrain from it please? Thank you. --P S Yライダー 00:50, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Trivia Removal

I would think being version counterparts would actually be quite notable triva? (to be clearer, I mean the edits to Ekans, Sandshrew, Mankey, Meowth, etc.). XVuvuzela2010X 13:08, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

It's speculation. There's no actual evidence that they are version counterparts. --Transfinite | Talk 13:14, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
It's not speculation, most replace the other on the same locations in each version. Take Ekans and Sandshrew for instance, in Red and Blue respectively, both are found only on routes 4, 11 and 23, at the same levels with the same encounter rates. XVuvuzela2010X 13:30, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
And there are no other similarities between them. Version exclusives are not automatically counterparts, unless officially stated. Besides, the trivia sections are overloaded with useless nonsense that clutters the page and makes it look unprofessional; is it seriously that important of a thing to include? --Transfinite | Talk 13:33, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Well most version exclusives are considered to be counterparts. Though I agree with you about the trivia sections, they are untidy, but unfortunately Bulbapedia dosen't have an official trivia policy, just this draft one, which has been sitting around for ages, but for some reason it is yet to be approved. But you could always try getting things added to it or something. XVuvuzela2010X 13:47, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Considered by fans. Fanon is not official information. --Transfinite | Talk 13:49, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Not everything has to be officialy announced, if it is accepted by pretty much everyone it is probably fine to add, though I'd check with an admin first. If everything had to be official, there would be no origin sections on Bulbapedia, since almost all of them are pure speculation. XVuvuzela2010X 13:56, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
