Wow, this article is so historically incorrect, it almost unfunny. So, is anyone capable of properly revising this, or do I have to step in? Trainer Yusuf (talk) 13:28, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

If you see something incorrect, you are more than welcome to fix it. This wiki is a collaborate effort, after all. --Pokemaster97 04:09, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Unauthorized move

Shouldn't there be at least some discussion before moving this page, especially considering that it's a politically-heavy thing. The Turkish government may insist on calling their country "Türkiye" in all possible languages, but this practice is still far from being widespread. It's a thing for diplomats and politicians, anyway. Colloquial names exist and there's time and place for using them, for example when talking about a children's video game. We're not bound by any diplomatic protocol here, there's no need to be this correct. I'd say move the page back. --Maxim (talk) 14:45, 24 December 2022 (UTC)

I agree, Google maps doesnt doesnt even label the country as "Türkiye"... There is a bigger case for Pokémon in the Czech Republic to be moved since the Czech government has been lobbying for a change and it is more internationally recognised as "Czechia" but we haven't done that yet. The day may come but as far as the English language is concerned its still "Turkey" imo.-- 4iamking (talk) 14:50, 24 December 2022 (UTC)
Just to update, I moved the page back and undid the edits that changed "Turkey" to "Türkiye" in the article, I strongly feel like such a change ought to have been discussed first.-- 4iamking (talk) 15:16, 24 December 2022 (UTC)
