Useful Food Images

Virtual-Z 21:20, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

I don't think the last one is food. It looks more like vitamins. Where did you find the picture? ナエトル A or Turtwig A My talk and my contributions 22:27, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
They were all part of the same picture. Someone took a picture of a load of Pokemon food they have. I thought vitamins, too. Most likely are. Virtual-Z 22:42, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Apparently, there are Pokémon vitamins in the real world. I just can't find a picture. ナエトル A or Turtwig A My talk and my contributions 22:46, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen them too. Not this kind, though. Virtual-Z 23:02, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Alright, so they were made by Sundown. Here they are. physlabs_2090_238412047.jpeg
They definitely do not go into a food article, though. Virtual-Z 23:08, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
I dunno. Vitamin supplements aren't neccessarily food, but is there enough information about Pokémon vitamins to warrant a seperate article? --ZestyCactus 23:58, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
No, there probably isn't enough, but they must fit in a future article. Until then, they can have their own (if we can gather enough info). I don't want kids coming on here thinking "OMG VITAMINS ARE CANDY LET'S EAT A LOAD" is the thing. Virtual-Z 00:28, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps further organization would be useful?

I notice that progress on the article is going along quite well. I also note that the Confectionery/treats section is gaining several entries. Perhaps further organization there is needed---splitting it into 'lollipops' 'marshmallows', and 'gummies', for example. Or, the section could diverge into a different article entirely, which could be titled Pokémon confectionery or Pokémon candy. Unless this is unnecessary, of course. Otherwise, perhaps they could be organized by Generation? I note that of the candies listed, most are from Generation I or Generation IV. Steph 03:57, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, the stuff in the middle is harder to find, and I personally wasn't around for any of Gen 3. Anyway, I think we're fine at this point. We will probably have to make a confectionery article in the future, but I like where we are at the moment. And yes, I'm extremely happy with the progress of this article :).

Since there are some Japan-exclusive Pokémon food products...

As evidenced by this link, <http://www.toysnjoys.com/pokemonfood.html>, there are some Pokémon food products that are (or seem) Japan-exclusive. How should they be dealt with? Should there be a separate section for Japan-exclusive Pokémon food products? Steph 22:53, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

I think it should have a seperate section. CuboneKing 22:58, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
I would think they would just be in the same section, unless other countries have exclusive stuff. I'm pretty sure I've seen Japanese Pokémon food products when doing a google search on Pokémon food products. ナエトル A or Turtwig A My talk and my contributions 12:54, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
We'll just include them in this article. It's all just food, and the country doesn't matter. Just make sure that it is stated that the food is sold only in Japan. It would be good to say where every item of food we have was sold, but it's hard to tell with English items since so many countries have it as an official language.

I just want to point out/warn you guys that there are literally 2894769238476293084768294 Pokemon food items in Japan. 梅子 04:07, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, there's alot elsewhere too. We knew going into this article that it is just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger. Virtual-Z 04:17, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Placement For This

I was going to put it here, but I want to see if most people agree that this is the best place to put it. Though not really food itself, the promotion was with a food item. Virtual-Z 14:46, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, might as well put it here, at the very least until we can figure out somewhere better. --ZestyCactus 00:00, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Other Food Products

Just curious, is this page attempting to list as many pokemon food products as possible? If so, would it be alright if I uploaded a few things? I have a few different kinds of pokemon candy that are not listed here. --いぬみみ 18:29, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Absolutely, go ahead! We want to try and list everything that exists, so if you know of something that isn't listed, please please add it! :) --ZestyCactus 18:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thank you ^^ I personally took the photos of these items so I have a lot to add. --いぬみみ 21:38, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Rolls

So the Pokemon Rolls section says that every box contained the gold bordered Meowth. I don't have any proof of this being the case, but I remember as a kid that they didn't all contain the gold bordered Meowth, I remember there being 5 different cards, a normal base set Bulbasaur/Charmander/Squirtle/Pikachu or the gold bordered Meowth. Can anyone back this up?
