Which should be used

So, before an edit war is started for whatever reason I'd like to ask which should be used, Anime or Adventures?. Personally I find it kind of wrong that the anime info should go on the top. I mean, just look at everything, this article was made with the Koga's Golbat from Adventures in mind and the anime one only appeared in one episode and just to battle Charmander (and lost).

Why not have it set on a switch, like with the infobox in Giratina's article? Have it set so that perhaps, every hour or so, the infobox changes to display the manga information and picture, then to the anime stuff, and so forth. I think that would be a reasonable compromise. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 23:54, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I personally think it should go in order of importance, in which case the Adventures counterpart has a much prominent role. In the anime alone, it wouldn't even be notable enough for it's own article. Perhaps you should ask Kenji-girl about the anime part of the article and go from there.

Doesn't it always go in Games>Anime>Manga order, regardless of importance? If not, then what am I thinking of? - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 01:05, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Games>Anime>Manga is the standard, but if one thing is more notable than another, usually it goes first. Most Trainer's Pokémon are notable because they appeared in the anime, so they have their anime information first, then their game information. --SnorlaxMonster 01:16, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Back to Jello's point, Adventures has prominence over all at the moment. It only appeared once in the games and TCG. ht14 04:42, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
I guess it should go in order of importance. Look at Dent's Yanappu. We obvious don't follow the Games>Anime>Manga pattern. Otherwise Yanappu's game information would have been first. --ケンジガール 05:33, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
The order used on most Bulbapedia articles is games > anime > manga, unless the character is overwhelmingly in one canon, i.e. Misty's Starmie, Brock's Geodude. In this case, I would recommend either using that predefined order as it will be familiar to readers (my personal preference), or inverting it with manga first and games last. —darklordtrom 10:14, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
