I think this should go under Drake (Hoenn) because there is another drake in the elite 4(In kanto) Darkmaster0

Last I heard, there's never been a Drake in any Kanto Elite Four. Hoenn is the only known Elite Four with a Drake in it, and the only other known Drake is from the Orange Islands...--Shiningpikablu252 21:53, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh sorry I got confused I thought lance's name was drake.Never mind. Darkmaster0ds

There is a Dragon Tamer named Drake in Stark Mountain. Besides the obvious name reference to dragons (i.e. "drake" = derivative of some romance word for "dragon"), should it go in the trivia section? Seiyaryen 08:51, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

We have Fisherman Juan, Parasol Lady Sabrina in DP, Skier Roxanne in GSC and several others. Not worth nothing, IMO. Names are just names. Especially in English translations - fails sometimes happen. --Maxim 08:56, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

English Name origin

Is it based off Sir Francis Drake, who was a pirate?~Vegeta

Spoilers?

There's at least two places in the comics sections where it says Steven is killed. We *could* slap on a spoilers tag, but could we just remove those details from this page entirely? I don't think it's really necessary to mention that on Drake's page. Also, OH CRAP I HAVEN'T READ THAT FAR IN ADVENTURES OH CRAP CAN'T UNREAD ARRGH!!! That's why I thought I'd bring it up.

They're too relevant to his Regirock to remove, so they should certainly stay. However, a spoiler tag wouldn't be a bad idea. --SnorlaxMonster 04:53, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Removing information would just make it confusing for those who knew. I'd say spoilers tag is the way to go. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 05:18, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Primary owner of the name "Drake" has a disambiguating parenthetical?

This Drake appears in all four of the major types of canon (games, anime, Pokemon Adventures manga, TCG), so I think he's the more notable Drake. The other, Drake (Orange League), appears in only two types of canon (anime and Electric Tale of Pikachu manga). They're clearly not on level footing as far as notability is concerned. Therefore, I think it would be better for this article to be located at "Drake" with a disambiguating hatnote pointing to "Drake (Orange Islands)". I don't think a disambiguation page is needed because one Drake is clearly the more notable owner of the name. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 07:54, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I agree, especially since this Drake is of the Hoenn Elite Four. The Elite Four is far more notable. The other Drake may be champion of the Orange Islands but he only appeared in two episodes. The Elite Four appeared in the mainstream games. SeanWheeler (talk) 01:44, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
