Does anyone here have subtitled DVDs with Episodes? Because they may contain names of characters that don't have their English names mentioned in episode like Keita, Senta or Tsubasa. --Maxim 14:47, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

I've got the Master Quest episode on DVD with Tsubasa. I'll check the subtitles on that one to see if she's got an English name. --PAK Man 15:06, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Main or recurring?

Actually, Joy and Jenny have appeared more times in the anime than Giovanni. Why is him classified as main character and they are only supporters? --Jomiarias 00:05, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

I organized them by their importance to the plot, really. Though... you have a point that I may have overranked Giovanni. Hmm. --Pie ~ 00:18, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
On the one hand, Giovanni is supposedly the Big Bad of the series. On the other hand, he hasn't really done that much outside of the Mewtwo movies. He's mainly a motivational figure. --FabuVinny T-C-S 00:22, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Even though this section is over a year old, I may as well add that two of Ash's rivals--Gary and Paul--are listed as main characters, while the other rivals (Ritchie, Drew, Zoey, etc.) are only considered recurring characters.Quagbert 03:31, 22 November 2008 (UTC)


Can someone who appeared in a two parter considered as "Recurring"? I mean, he/she is still an One-time character, with just one hour longer "time". The definition of "recurring" is that the character popped out at least twice. But appearing in two parter is not "twice" it's just "once but for a bit longer". So, I think the two-parter COTDs should not be considered as recurring characters. --Maxim 18:21, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. Wholeheartedly. --Kyoufu Kawa 18:24, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Kawa. This is very important for me to get your support. --Maxim 19:37, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
