Shouldn't this be at Pokémon: Rival Destinies? サトシ 22:24, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Other pages use this standard. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:27, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
But it's not the Black and White series, it's the Best Wishes series. --サトシ 22:32, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Best Wishes only applies to Japan. --HoennMaster 09:18, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
The "BW" stands for Black & White in the dub version, not Best Wishes. Also, I have noticed in a lot of promos that aired on Cartoon Network*, they always use the full titles of the seasons. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 12:29, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
The BW might not stand for Best Wishes! in the dub, but we have no confirmation, nor is it necessarily called the "Black and White series". We need to be consistent - make sure the Japanese series title agrees with the dub. And also, why do we consider it to be part of the Best Wishes series in the dub if you are contradicting this? サトシ 23:56, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Best Wishes = every episode regardless of the season. Black & White = dub only seasons. The dub does not use Best Wishes at all and that's confirmed. The series certainly does not have to be the same as the dub as seen with the Advanced Generation series. The dub only used Advanced and never Generation except for the last season of AG where they dropped Advanced completely. --ケンジガール 00:12, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
My apologies for replying to an old discussion but to close it once and for all, here is the proof from the official CN website to clarify why we follow this naming standard i.e calling it "Pokémon Black & White: Rival Destinies" (found it from the coding):

Juniper-Bianca trade and evolve

Are they too recurring to be listed?--SandmanDP 14:30, 18 February 2012 (UTC)


The article fails to mention that Cilan's Dwebble evolves in Crustle and than learns Rock Wrecker. As it is written now, it is a little confusing when and how he got a Crustle. Yamitora1 08:55, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Ash's Boldore has a similar wording. Plus, it shows that Dwebble evolves in the evolutions section of the article.--ForceFire 10:12, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


Did anyone notice that this season has had the most gym battles in one season (outside of Kanto, Battle Frontier, and Orange Islands) with 5? Should we mention this as trivia?--Pokemon26 (talk) 17:18, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Battle Frontier aren't technically Gym battles, and you kind of answered your own questions. It's not the most so I don't think we need to note it. --HoennMaster 18:39, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Considering the Indigo League had 8, no. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:42, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Infobox problem

In the infobox, it says that the succeeding season is "unannounced". But season 16(Pokémon Black & White: Adventures in Unova), has been announced. I went to fix the problem, only to find that season 16 is in the infobox coding. So, why isn't the infobox showing this? Pokegen master (talk) 14:39, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
