Why do we have this? It seems pointless to me. If all it did was temporarily hold the rights to several Pokémon movies, then it is unnotable and should be deleted. - unsigned comment from Spyspotter (talkcontribs) 02:38, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

It was one of the companies that helped to distribute the movies in English, in addition to distributing the anime in the United Kingdom. It does have a connection to the series. --Super goku (talk) 03:29, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
Then why doesn't Boomerang have an article? It currently has airing rights to all Pokémon episodes from the original series. Besides, we don't have an article on Turner Broadcasting Network for running Cartoon Network. - unsigned comment from Spyspotter (talkcontribs) 00:51, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
I would have say that is simply due to the article not being created yet based on the assumption that no one has taken the initiative to create it, but was created once and existed until Zesty Cactus merged it with this article. ...So, I guess that It depends on if we should have all stations and corporations as articles, only select stations, or none at all. Though, that might require a decision by the Staff members or a community wide decision. --Super goku (talk) 01:17, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
It was decided at the time Project Globe started up that all articles on television stations should be merged into their respective countries' articles. Prior to Project Globe, there was a Project TV that had articles on television stations in various countries. This, along with articles for international voice actors, were merged into the Project Globe articles as they were created. The Boomerang article was focused on the Boomerang in the United States, so I merged it into Pokémon in the United States. (There is also a Latin American Boomerang, which is detailed in the Latin America article and links to Wikipedia for more information on the station itself) Currently, the only television stations that should have articles are from Japan, such as TV Tokyo and Oha Suta, as we have no plans to make a Project Globe article for Japan at this time. Honestly, to this article doesn't seem to really add anything significant to Bulbapedia. I understand Warner Brothers was distributing the movies at some point, right? AFAIK we don't have any article for them. --ZestyCactus 03:37, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
This was up here for how many weeks now? This article should now be officially deleted by an admin. The above comment is supported by Spyspotter. 16:11, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Personally, I think we should have articles for distributors of the Pokémon anime, particularly North American distributors. That's why we have articles like Miramax Films and Universal Studios Home Entertainment. --SnorlaxMonster 17:09, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Technically, it wasn't a "distributor." All it did was own the rights to several actual distributors. The above comment is supported by Spyspotter. 15:13, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
