What makes it 13-15 in LG? since it should be 10 or so years before gen 7, wouldn't it be a lot younger? cuz that implies 23-25 for USUM doesnt it?Roserade57 (talk) 22:26, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

A book of artwork for Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee was released and the artist's notes on Mina says she's in that age range. https://twitter.com/pokexperto/status/1066324774111055872?s=21.PDL (talk) 22:35, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
That messes the timeline up a bit lolRoserade57 (talk) 07:21, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
But are LGPE contemporary to other Kanto games? Red and Blue are well known there, not some kids who are only starting their adventure. During the original Kanto Mina should have been preschooler's or grade schooler's age. Then LGPE happened, where she is 13-15, and then Alola, where she can be as old as 19. Wasn't that the case? Also, you can't be Trial Captain if you're older than 19, so she can't be 23-25. Kikugi (talk) 06:19, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

LGPE Artwork

A final art for Mina for LGPE exists (I have an LQ photo of it, which unfortunately cannot be used), but the only currently known way to get it is to scan it from the Japanese Strategy Guide for these games. I don't know the contents of the Japanese guide, but it might feature even more character artworks (both final and concept art) that cannot be found in the western guide. I hope there is someone over here who owns the Japanese LGPE guide and may scan that Mina art, as well as possible other arts that we don't have, in decent quality. If we can't find such a person for a long time, I think the frontal art cut out from the concept sketch (which is found in the Prima guide, so getting it is not a problem) may do for the infobox (at least as a temporary solution), but we should use final artworks wherever possible. --Maxim (talk) 11:13, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Issue addressed. My friend scanned the art in question and I already uploaded it, but it turns out that it is not from the Japanese (full) Strategy Guide for the games, but actually from another Japanese walkthrough book, which came earlier than the actual guide but, unlike it, does not cover the entire game (it also doesn't have things like Pokedex or Concept Art section, on the interesting side of things, however, it features a short manga about the games). My friend who owns this book confirms that it doesn't include any further artworks that we don't have (aside from this Mina art), but we still don't know what's in the full Japanese strategy guide (as my friend doesn't own it). It is possible that it features some character artworks that weren't featured in neither the Prima Guide, nor that Japanese incomplete walkthrough book from earlier. What I can confirm is that it features some concept arts (not just of characters) that can't be found in the Prima guide, so it is definitely worth investigation. I still hope that there is someone over here who owns this guide and can say what is inside it. --Maxim (talk) 15:49, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
