Am I dealing with completely different pronunciation laws or something? Because to me, "Junsā" would be pronounced "jun-say", with the long a that the bar indicates--BJG

You've been entirely too far corrupted by English pronunciation. It is true, that once upon a time, the English long a was really a long a (say father. Now stretch that vowel, without changing its quality, and you get close to what a real long a is.) But, the power of sound change changed [a:] to [eI], which is its present value. (If you want to learn more, read up on the Great Vowel Shift.) - 振霖T 09:53, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Only the sound in 'father' isn't a long a, it's an 'ah' sound. - unsigned comment from Blackjack Gabbiani (talkcontribs)

Only in English (and a few other languages that happen to have had the same sound shifts) would a long a (and certainly not long [a], although long /a/ you may have a case) be pronounced [eI]. The International Phonetic Association definition of a long [a] is what I'm talking about, and it is remarkably close to the sound in father, as well as Junsā. (And if an ah sound is [a:], then how is the exclamatory ah pronounced? [a:] as well? Don't think so... That's why there's a phonetic alphabet for describing sounds without relying on certain pronounciations of certain words in English (which varies by region anyway).) - 振霖T 12:48, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)

(And if an ah sound is [a:], then how is the exclamatory ah pronounced? [a:] as well? Don't think so.. That's how I've always said it --BJG


when did she have one? Mooites 23:18, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I guess she never had one. I reviewed her appearances in the anime yet I didn't saw her with a Blastoise.--☆Kevzo8 05:42, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


Why was the bit that the Policeman Trainer class was based after Jenny??? Just like Jenny, they originally used Growlithes... --Theryguy512 02:26, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

A verb in that sentence would help. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 02:27, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh...sorry. Let's try that again : Why was the bit that the Policeman Trainer class was based after Jenny taken out??? Just like Jenny, they originally used Growlithes... --Theryguy512 02:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Cops use police dogs. Growlithe happens to be a dog Pokémon. That doesn't mean they were inspired by Officer Jenny. And Pokémon names are plural. You should just say Growlithe, not Growlithes. --ケンジガール 02:30, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Probably because, to my knowledge, the anime came after the game. Jenny would be modeled after the trainer class, not the other way around - but I could be wrong. --AUXIA (talk) 02:34, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
The Policeman trainer class didn't appear until Gold and Silver. Officer Jenny was there before then. --ケンジガール 02:35, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, you're right. Sorry, I forgot Police were introduced in Generation II. --AUXIA (talk) 02:37, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Notable ones

Don't you think that notable Jennys and Joys should be noted, or even created articles for them (like the COD ones)? Some Jennys and Joys through the series had had a more important role that the others, like DP115's Jenny and AG161's Joy, for example. - Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 21:05, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Jenny's hair

I was watching the japanese first opening (mezase pokemon master) and notice she has green hair there, which I think is weird because she does have it blue in some episodes... I don't remember why I'm posting this anyway xD, maybe I was looking for coments about it :D--YukitoOoO 04:39, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

You can put this in the error section of the Japanese Opening if yuo are sure.--Prongs (TalkContributions) 04:57, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Oops I think I posted this in the wrong place in the, I thought I was in Officer Jenny's talk, not her glowlithe's xD sorry, and no I don't think it's an error in the opening, I think the error actually goes on the coloring in those some episodes.--YukitoOoO 07:29, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes and counting on that they mention Jenny had blue hair in the early seasons, however in Episode 2, Jenny had green hair. And in DP036, the Viridian Jenny returned and also had green hair. But we dont know if that Jenny in EP002 and DP036 is the same.--Ruixiang95 11:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I found Sugimori art of Jenny...

But it's got all this stuff going on in the background. Should we use it anyways? ZestyCactus 23:41, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Hurricane or Defog

I have seen the move Swanna used translated as Defog. Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 00:39, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Japanese name bit

I notice that a bit about Jenny's japanese name is there at the article's top paragraph. Should this be moved to the name origin section? EvilKirikizan 21:12, 22 May 2011 (UTC)


Shall we make a Officer Jenny's Herdier page? Officer Jenny appears again with one in BW052? Prinben 21:02, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

It is fairly obvious that Herdier is the new Growlithe, but the argument it that they have not done anything yet, however we mainspaced Joy's Audino before it even appeared Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 22:43, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
  • thats what I mean, Nurse Joy's Audino was made before the anime started (BW) so we should make one for Officer Jenny's Herdier? Prinben 22:48, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
I'd agree, though we should wait for Kenji-girls decison, just because we did mainspace Audino early, dose not mean we were right too Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 22:50, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

yeah true, alright, let me know ok? Prinben 22:55, 22 September 2011 (UTC)


Apparently, another Officer Jenny had two Arcanine in Luxray Vision. Would this be enough for Arcanine to be moved to the main Pokemon section, or would we just add these Arcanine to the other list? Vuvuzela2010 Δ 00:00, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

I don't think so. Nurse Joy has had a few Blissey, and that wasn't moved. But do you know if it used any moves in this episode besides Flamethrower to add to its section? LimeGreenCharizard 01:22, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Badges on the cap

Has anyone attempted to make list of all different badges on Jenny's cap? Ruxax 13:33, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

That seems very minor and unnotable--SandmanDP 17:23, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
I could make a page, but I won't be able to post the photos of the badges on the Archives because I have no time (or knowledge) to contribute over there. If someone's willing to do that for me, I'll get to work on it.--Knowitall (talk) 17:33, 28 March 2014 (UTC)


I thought the voice of Jenny was Megan Hollingshead. Pborri 18:25, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Azumarill and Octillery

I just watched that episode- at what point did Octillery use Aurora Beam? All I saw was Constrict, Octazooka, and Water Gun. And as for Azumarill's Tail Whip, I know what that's referring to, but to be honest, I was more inclined to call it a Slam attack, something Azumarill can learn (albeit in the Azurill stage). Just wanted to make sure this isn't just me before I change anything on the page, is all. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 22:59, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Arcanine, Herdier & Swanna

About Arcanine, Herdier & Swanna, are they really noticeable enough? Nurse Joy used Blissey twice (the same number of times as all os these 3), but Blissey is not her stationary Pokemon, can we please remove these 3 from noticeable?--Omojuzeforever (talk) 11:03, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Bump!--Omojuzeforever (talk) 12:21, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I agree that Arcanine and Swanna shouldn't be considered "main", but I have to tentatively request that someone with a better memory than me confirm that the two appearances of Jenny's Herdier are really the only two in the Best Wishes series. If there are more, I think Herdier should be in the "main" section. If it was just those two times, I agree that it shouldn't be in "main", and also propose that we remove the sentence that says it's the normal Pokemon for Unova Jennys to have, since it's tied with Swanna. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 06:32, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Ok I took a look at Officer Jenny's Herdier and it appeared 2 times (BW022 & BW052). It also appeared in BW069, but that was in a fantasy--Omojuzeforever (talk) 15:47, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Hypnotized Pokémon

Should we list Beedrill, Noivern, Scolipede, Exploud, and Pangoro under the temporary Pokémon section since Malamar hypnotized them and Malamar was Officer Jenny/Madame X's Pokémon during the hypnosis? PattyMan 18:41, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Clemont's Dedenne

Shouldn't we include Clemont's Dedenne in the Temporary Owned Pokemon section since Dedenne was controlled by Malamar in A Conspiracy To Conquer! StephenWalker97 (talk) 21:16, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Madame X

Why don't make an article for Madame X? - unsigned comment from KyleRGiggs (talkcontribs) 15:20, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

I believe she had her real identity revealed later in the episode, so I don't see a point. However, the reveal is a bit of a spoiler for those who didn't see the episode, so there's something favoring a separate page... Berrenta (talk) 16:02, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, my point is, to separate the Pokemon which controlled by Madame X. 02:21, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Herdier notability

i know as discussed above, herdier only appear in 2 episode. however, in the Summerly Slope opening, it is shown together with officer jenny, together with growlithe too. this shows that herdier is the main dog-like pokemon in unova despite appearing in only 2 episode. even growlithe does not appear as often in kanto, johto, hoenn and sinnoh despite being the "main" pokemon. so why isnt herdier counted? -Pokeant (talk) 16:25, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
