Faraway Island

I wouldn't connect Faraway Island to the anime-only statement that Mew's remnants were found in Guyana. Anime =/= Games. There's no proof that Faraway Island is in Guyana or anywhere near. --Maxim 08:33, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

It's copied from the Faraway Island article. XVuvuzela2010X 15:53, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
And its not anime only. Both Faraway Island and the Cinnabar Journals are from the games, and they state that Mew was found in Guyana. XVuvuzela2010X 15:59, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
Okay, then let's reverse it. What's the proof that the place from the anime is Guyana? --Maxim 16:09, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
It isnt mentioned (I think), though I don't feel it needs to be explicitly stated, seeing as it is blatantly obvious. XVuvuzela2010X 16:21, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Real-World Counterpart

According to Google Maps, there appear to be a couple of small, forested islands off of the coast of Guyana. Could it be reasoned that one of these could be a RL counterpart to Faraway Island? Morgil27 (talk) 02:43, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Deletion

This article says that Guyana is never mentioned in Mewtwo Strikes Back (nor in the short), in which case this article shouldn't imply it was. (Our M01 and Mewtwo articles do just say "Guyana", though, but I tend to believe they're just assuming, and this article is more accurate.) So, assuming Guyana isn't actually mentioned, what remains is just the Pokémon Mansion journals, which I believe is hardly enough for an article (but good for the mention here). Then, I'd say we should delete this article, and remove references to Guyana from the above mentioned articles and the template (and de-link it in the few other places we mention it).

No references

Could it be Faraway Island's Anime counterpart? But as the real world location,Guyana is not an island but a coastal country instead. Even we don't get any references about it in Mewtwo Strikes Back. Ash Roy (talk) 03:41, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Deletion (again)

Can we get rid of this article? The Uncut Story of Mewtwo's Origin never actually mentions Guyana, so most of the content in this article shouldn't really be here. The references to Guyana in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen (I'm not sure about Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, since I've not played them) are the only ones that we have in any canon, as far as I'm aware. There's simply not enough information for a full article. Dannyboy601 (talk) 01:25, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

This wiki has stubs for several locations that appear in the canon, many of which have less information than this article, so I don't think quantity of information is at issue here. There are also references to Guyana as Mew's location in the Super Smash Bros. series, which (based on my understanding) includes information about Pokémon that is considered canon. To me, these factors make this article worth keeping. –Butterfreeism (talk) 00:50, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
And even if it was non-canon, that doesn’t make it not notable. The Star Trek fandom spun off the non-canonical realm of the franchise into a 55,000 page wiki. Sure it might not be in Memory Alpha’s focus, but they made Beta only so it wouldn’t complicate the main stuff, that’s how notable it is. And I’m sure there are locations whose articles are sized as much as Guyana’s is here--KnightGalarie (talk) 02:03, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
I think it would make sense to delete this page. The only reference to it is in the Pokémon Mansion journals. Everything else is just speculation. --SnorlaxMonster 10:57, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
