Baoba = Warden "Slowpoke"

I loaded my Japanese save onto the English version and noticed a very interesting thing - the Pal Park owner (who's the Warden's son and the father of the girl who now sits in the Warden's House [she was there in GSC also]) says that his FATHER told him that the player is a tough trainer. Who else could that be, if not Baoba? I'm gonna start the English version over so I'll see if Baoba confirms that he's the same guy who hosted the Safari Zone in Kanto but I think that's now pretty obvious that he's the same person (because if not him, then who was the aforementioned "father"?). --Maxim 14:30, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

If memory serves, Baoba does indeed confirm that he was the warden of Kanto's Safari Zone before opening up the deepest circle of hell Johto Safari Zone. Stupid shiny Ekans.... - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 11:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
  • I just got to the point you meet him in SS, and he does say he is the old warden of the Kanto Safari Zone. So I'm up for the merge, but the title should be " Safari Zone Warden Baoba".--Nick the Snorlax 14:50, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Why such an unneccessarily long title? --Maxim 14:54, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree with the merge, but the page should still be at "Baoba". CuboneKing 23:40, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, they need to be merged since he claims he is one in the same. One thing that needs to be addressed when merged is the fact that in Generation II he is on a trip but in Generation IV he isn't. --HoennMaster 05:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Name Origin

I think the origin of Baoba's name is from Balboa Park, the Place where the San Diego Zoo is.
