Merge

I am proposing that we merge the articles for Secret Islet, Secret Meadow, and Secret Shore into one page. While each of them are separate locations, they only serve a single purpose, a place for secret bases. I think one page can easily cover all the necessary info. I'm not sure if Secret Spot is the canon term for these places, but it is what people seem to toss around. --HoennMaster 03:33, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

"Secret spot" looks like it actually just means a place where a Secret Base can be made. I'm not sure if there's any sort of policy saying all locations should have their own page or something, but if not, I'd say they could perhaps be placed on Secret Base. (If "Super Secret Base" were its own page, I'd say definitely there.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:59, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
My issue is that we don't have a good combined name for them (Secret Spot is the name of the locations for making Secret Bases), they're all marked on the game map (with their own map descriptions), they're all accessed from different routes, and all function as their own have/met locations and Fly/soar destinations. Particularly due to the fact that they are all individually labelled on the map, I think they should have their own articles. --SnorlaxMonster 05:46, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Merge separate locations is a messy issue, it's something I thought of as well. I just didn't see the point of having three separate pages that share 98% of the same information. --HoennMaster 07:11, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
My objection is that "Secret Spot" and "Mirage Spot" may be seen as synonymous by some users. CycloneGU (talk) 17:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Separate locations, separate map markers, shouldn't be merged. If we merge these together, we may as well merge the Regi locations together, the lake trio caves and other similar locations. Same principal, they're similar locations. Sure, these share the same mechanic and the articles aren't that long, but they shouldn't be in the same article. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 18:06, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
"Secret Spot" and "Mirage Spot" seeming similar is a non-issue. Were we to have pages at both titles, we could have a {{search}} notice at the top for the other. However, "Secret Spot" actually refers to the indentations/trees/bushes where you can make Secret Bases, not these locations, so the term absolutely should not be used (not to mention that it would be "secret spot" due to being conjectural). --SnorlaxMonster 04:14, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Secret Islet, Secret Meadow, and Secret Shore are all locations like routes and cities. If we merge these pages, then Lake Acuity, Lake Verity and Lake Valor should all be on the same page as well. All of those locations are very similar but they all have their own page because they are different locations. Secret spots are where the player can use Secret Power to create a secret base. I personly disagree with merging these pages. ----Ethan (Discussion) 19:20, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
There's a big difference in the amount of info available between these three locations and the three lakes. That example isn't a good one at all. --HoennMaster 07:17, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Never mind, those locations have different wild Pokémon, trainers and are different story-wise, they are similar though. But they are still different locations and there is not really a good name for the merged article. ----Ethan (Discussion) 15:10, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
