Is this game canon? Metalfenix11 13:13, January 9 2012 (UTC)

As the article says, it's a spinoff crossover. We can't be sure it's going to be canon or not, but it's mostly unlikely. Masatoshitalk 13:29, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
God. How on the Earth could it be canon? --Maxim 14:30, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
  • It's not canon, or at least not canon to the main series games. The only canon "spinoffs" are Colosseum and XD, and they take place decades in the future, even from the point of XY. (I'd say: RBGY-1995, GSC-1998, RSE-2001, DPPt-2004, BW1-2007, BW2-2009, XY-2012, possible 7th gen-2015, Colosseum-2030, XD-2035.)--Kaiko Mikkusu (talk) 08:41, 17 January 2014 (UTC) Kaiko

Koei Wiki

Here is a link to the Koei Wiki article of the game. [1]

I figure linking back to the Koei character articles would be best, rather than the normal Wikipedia historical figure profiles, since the characters take on the appearances and personalities of Koei's Samurai Warriors 3 interpretations.

New characters

I added new characters according to what is written on Koei's official wiki:émon_Plus_Nobunaga_no_Yabou#Other_characters Shepeedy 20:10, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

So, uh...

These characters, they are getting articles when the game comes out, right? Because that gallery is getting ridiculously large now. Ataro 04:17, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

I sure hope so. Trying to have info of all the characters and story on one page would be a bit much. :-( Frozen Fennec 04:19, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Most of them would, but for minor characters we could always go for something like this. --SnorlaxMonster 10:38, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

I've got an idea. To save time, we could put all of one type of warrior on one page. - PichuMadman26

Possible trivia

Not sure if this would be worth including in the article, but the name of the area the player character begins in, Hajime (ハジメ), is Japanese for "beginning". The name of the domain that was historically Nobunaga's homeland is Owari (尾張, or オワリ in katakana) which with different kanji can mean "end". Since Nobunaga appears to be the final boss of the game, this means the players starts in the "beginning" and finishes at the "end". --ACDragonMaster 02:05, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

if i may, i think we should pre-order a copy to do research on this game. I already pre-ordered mine today. (ReshiramHeroDes (talk) 23:55, 11 June 2012 (UTC))
I pre-ordered the Japanese version, actually. :) I just forgot about this comment here. Whoops. Still unsure whether that merits trivia, though, since obviously Nobunaga's domain isn't called Owari in the game (which makes sense, since Ransei isn't Japan). --ACDragonMaster (talk) 04:24, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

First crossover game

Pokémon already had another crossover game aside from Smash Bros. with the Mystery Dungeon-series. Although Chunsoft primarily borrows licensed characters for their games , it remains a crossover in my opinion (because the Smash Bros. crossover is similar, aside from the game genre.) - and thus - should be stated.

Renoir 15:56, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Is Mystery Dungeon really a crossover? There is no characters outside the Pokémon franchise (if I am wrong, say it), while both this and the Smash Bros series have such characters. Marked +-+-+ 16:00, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

It is, between the Mystery Dungeon Series and Pokémon. Mystery Dungeon has also crossovers with other series, such as Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy. The Wikipedia article provides further information, and since the content is rather consistent, i don't think they just created the games for the purpose of trolling readers. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon although, seems to be the most well-known Mystery Dungeon crossover. Renoir 17:01, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Conquest

The official site has stated that the game will be called Pokémon Conquest outside of Japan and will be released in the US on June 18, 2012. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:54, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

American Rating (ESRB) confirmed!

The Entertainment Software Rating Board of America (ESRB) confirmed that the rating of this title is E for Everyone for Mild Cartoon Violence and Mild Suggestive Themes.

Character list + starting to add more information...

Given the sheer number of images in the article, as well as the number of characters in the game, would it be more appropriate to move most the images to a separate gallery linked from the article instead? That would allow for more room for character information and make the article look less cluttered.

Also, I'm starting to work on adding more detailed information on the game, as this page is pretty sorely lacking, but since the English version isn't out yet I'm having to rely on terms used in the Japanese version (or their translations) for the time being. If anyone has a better translation or something official in English comes out, please do fix it. --ACDragonMaster 21:27, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Eventually all the characters will get their own pages and the images will be removed from this page. Chances are this will be after the English release though. --SnorlaxMonster 08:34, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

They say each side has a team of 6(naturally) and your starter is eevee, so how do get the other 5?- unsigned comment from VENUS,MEGA,SCEPT,TORTE,SERP (talkcontribs)

Well, yes, but I can add at least some basic information and clean up the page now like I did for the Ransei page, which would make it easier to edit later and more informational in the mean time. I'm just enough of a noob at wikicode that I don't want to accidentally screw up the images somehow... --ACDragonMaster 01:16, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
You recruit more Warlords to use. Guess I forgot to mention the bit about recruit them, I'll go add that in. XD --ACDragonMaster 01:16, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but making a separate page just for a gallery is going to make it harder to sort things out when we give the characters pages, as it will need to be deleted once they all get pages. The gallery is quite long right now, but it isn't really causing any problems. --SnorlaxMonster 03:28, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Side stories

Why is there no information on the side stories unlocked after the main game is completed? --Questioner (talk) 10:26, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Cause no one really has gotten around to do it. You can add it if you have the information.--ForceFire 10:28, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Episodes, not stories.

I think all uses of the word "stories" in this article should be changed to "episodes" because that is what they are called on the official website. PkmnChmp5 (talk) 04:28, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Game uses "story," so someone has to choose which to follow. Site or game? -tc²₆tc26- 06:06, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
That website is riddled with errors. Use what the game says. Ataro (talk) 06:13, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

lilligant password

I got the american lilligant password from nintendo zone. Can someone please put in in the passwords section. (it works): RwGxLbHRRk. Deoxys80 (talk) 23:44, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Done. --RiverAura 03:48, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Password reuse

Does anyone know exactly what is needed to be done to reuse passwords? (for example, does new game + do the trick, or does all saved data have to be cleared?) AySz88 (talk) 15:37, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Random Event

I noticed an odd random event that I haven't seen any records of on here nor any other site. At the start of a month, Kanetsugu started complaining about a cold, of all things. Then a message popped up saying that the warriors who caught a cold are unable to do anything for the month, and three warriors all from the same kingdom were disabled for that turn, with a small purple box near their picture indicating the cause. This hadn't happened until February of Year 17 in my game. Schiffy (talk) 04:20, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

EDIT - and in the following month (just happened right after I posted this), the cold seems to have traveled to a neighboring kingdom, with both the warriors from the previous month, and one more from this month unable to do anything for the turn, and not only that, but it seems to span a little longer than a month or two. Can anyone else say they've seen this? - unsigned comment from Schiffy (talkcontribs)
I have seen this, and when it does happen, it annoys the stuffing out of me. There's a similar phenomenon in the form of hay fever which has similar effects. Luckily, these problems can be eliminated right from the start by buying Cold Medicine and Hayfever Pills from the traveling merchants. Dragonhat (talk) 04:31, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I had this. It took several turns to spread, and also initiated hay fever half way through, so both were going at the same time. If you isolate an affected kingdom (no direct connections, with at least one empty kingdom as a buffer) it doesn't spread. Oh and while you're getting the cold and hayfever medicine, pick up a thing of fireworks too. You won't regret it. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 09:28, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
I would also like to say that it affects the enemy, while your top worrier in the castle will say it is a good time to attack (though I didn't attack so I don't know if they are weaker of just unable to battle). And even if you use the medicine, it can still spread the next month.TrainerX493 (talk) 07:59, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Zekrom Password?

Can anyone even confirm that this supposed password for Zekrom even works? I tried it once, to no avail (though it was during the initial story), and it wouldn't make any rational sense that it would ever work, seeing as obtaining Zekrom has certain requirements involving having Nobunaga in your army, and no password should be needed. Schiffy (talk) 03:23, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

DSI enhanced?

Does anybody knows how this game is Nintendo DSi enhanced?TrainerX493 (talk) 17:26, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

No one seems to be quite sure about this. I found a gamefaqs thread discussing it, but nothing seems to have been figured out. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 19:09, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Harmless bug: worth writing about?

I found a bug. After a battle, the winning side has one of its characters make an "I win!" remark. But in one case, the enemy attacked one of my pokemon with Astonish, which pushed it onto the final flag I needed to capture. But rather than one of my characters making the remark, the enemy (kanbei) said the "I win." line. Presumably because he got the last attack in, the attack that ended the battle!

Its extremely silly, but I'm just not sure if its worth noting. If it is, I don't know where exactly I could put it. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 09:25, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Let me get this straight. The enemy used a move that put your Pokémon onto the last banner you needed to win (and the banner was actually captured), but the outro win line was made by an enemy Warlord? I'm not doubting this, but it seems like it would be nearly impossible to duplicate. But if anyone else can confirm it, I don't see why it shouldn't be added. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 16:00, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Was Kanbei defending the kingdom? Was this on the very last turn of battle? Did the attacked pokémon die after being pushed onto the banner? Was the banner claimed in the color of your team? And ignoring the line, who controlled the kingdom after the battle was over? (Really, more info on the circumstances is needed.) Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
I don't know about this glitch, but while we are on this subject: the first glitch I would like to note is that sometimes when using the secret passage in Viperia opposite from where the defending army side start while at the attacking side view you can see the Pokémon drop below under the floor, depending on the Pokémon. The second one is if one evolves Eevee into Leafeon before reaching rank 2 in the main story and then becomes rank 2, it will not give the "Now our connection is stronger" message until an action is done that would affect link (both by the user and delegating), which is normally given right away when a Worrier evolves with a Pokémon they only 100% link with at rank 2/3. Also this site with a bunch of betas for not just this game but a lot of others too (both main games and side games):émon_Conquest TrainerX493 (talk) 07:52, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Another glitch. In the story The Legend of Ransei (the main story) in cragspur at the beginning before Pansage and Machop attacks the rocks if you hit the rocks instead they will still move over and attack the spots, even if the hit nothing (the attack animation will play and then end with no result).TrainerX493 (talk) 18:01, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Event passwords

So do we have to keep waiting for official sources to add the passwords that unlock the events? The download versions have ended for the NA games and it would be really handy for late-comers to know they are password-accessible. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 00:26, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Not at all, go ahead and add them if they are available. --Spriteit (talk) 00:33, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I would, but the hidden note in the download section says otherwise ("do NOT place passwords here unless they are released by OFFICIAL sources"). And unless you added it, I just wanna know who's idea that was, why not, and can we now? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 00:52, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Tc26 added it. --Spriteit (talk) 01:31, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
While on the topic of official sources, where did this Zekrom password come from? Zekrom is only obtainable in one way, and that is in Violight during The Road to Conquest. Certain requirements need to be met, but none of them involve a password. Can someone explain where this came from? Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 04:11, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Document the password system?

Because the password algorithm has been known for a while now (see my writeup of it, based on a program made back in 2012) would it be worth documenting it here, probably on a subpage? This would allow users to generate passwords for Pokemon/events with no official passwords, and would allow us to disambiguate between those and official passwords.

Speaking of the official passwords, can we please give citations for them? If citations can't be found, and we decide to document the password algorithm here, can we just remove the official ones entirely? Without citing where they are found, official passwords are only as meaningful as carefully-constructed unofficial passwords. mathfreak231 17:23, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

I think a good precedent to this would be the clock reset/wallpaper/egg code generators for main series generations II-IV, and the Mystery Dungeon Wonder Mail generators. Both were considered notable enough for Bulbapedia to acknowledge the generators' existence and link to them, but not to document how the generators actually work. I think your documentation would be valuable should the original generator get taken down, but whether that's page-worthy is probably something for the Bulbapedia higher-ups to decide.
Something to note: even if we do link the generator, that doesn't necessarily mean we can distinguish between official and unofficial passwords - just which ones actually work or not. A carefully-constructed unofficial password is not going to be distinguishable from a generated one unless an official distribution source is found.
...but that being said, the only real concern between official and unofficial passwords is the warning from Nintendo: "Do not enter any unofficial passwords. If you enter such passwords, future attempts to enter correct passwords may not work.". For a while, many were concerned that generated passwords had a risk of messing up someone's game, but we know now that the warning simply speaks about the 64 password ID slots in the game. As long as the slot system is clearly explained and the slot ID's for all passwords are clearly visible, I believe it should be "safe" to use generator codes.
In regards to citing password sources, I've now added distribution notes to the password section for several english-language sources that I could verify. We may want to add slot ID numbers for the official passwords as well, for clarity --Boblers (talk) 04:45, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
