I gotta ask, what makes Korea more significant of a release date then China? Or Taiwan? Or Hong Kong? I can see the others since they're all major English-speaking areas, but Korea is not. Porygon-Z 00:29, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Right. Also, most of the games' Korean release date is empty (see {{Core series}} games), so why should it be listed there? Ҝəυzø8 11:24, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Roundy borders

Not sure what you'd like, but it needs rounded borders.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity was here at 15:52, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, why isn't it {{roundy}} like everything else? →ΑΧΧΟΝΝfire 01:01, 10 August 2010 (UTC)


Should it be put down as RP for rating pending when it`s been announced for the ESRB rating.Because,They put it down as RP when a game has been announced for america.LucarioWolf 15:55, 7 July 2010 (UTC)


I think Infobox game/staffno and Infobox game/staffyes should be deleted, as they have no use anymore and I personally don't think it's best for the staff links to be in the infobox. ポケモンあいこうか 22:16, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Done. Thanks! Jellotalk 22:30, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) ポケモンあいこうか 22:35, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

European box art option

Can someone add in an option for the European boxart, like we do with the Japanese boxart? As well as Super Pokémon Rumble, the European box for Channel is different than the American one, removing the E-Reader info and replacing it with an advert for the Jirachi promotion. I don't know if there are any others that this would apply to.

Anyone? The EU boxart for Super Pokemon rumble has now been uploaded.

I say it depends on which parts of Europe would be the ones displayed. If we only select English-language ones, the others go on their "Pokemon in Countria" articles--SandmanDP 21:59, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't see why. It'd clutter up the template a lot for no reason. SatoMew 17:10, 25 October 2012 (UTC)


OFLC needs to be replaced with ACB (Australian Classification Board). Jameswa 10:18, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Instead of replacing, it should be added as another rating entry. OFLC exists in New Zealand and that should be kept, with any wrong ratings corrected. SatoMew 17:09, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I've been playing with the template's code again and went to check the ratings situation. The ratings we currently have for OFLC are actually for ACB, since Nintendo of Australia is also applicable to New Zealand. Thus, the games' ratings in New Zealand are the same as Australia's, which means OFLC of New Zealand doesn't matter here, only the one from Australia (which is now called ACB). So yes, it has to be changed from OFLC to ACB. SatoMew 19:49, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Not only are our games distributed by Australia, but our rating system literally has a process by which a G in Australia or the UK means that the game automatically get a G here without it even being examined. Unless a Pokemon game gets a restricted rating (which I doubt will ever happen), NZ ratings will always be the same as Australia. No need to list it twice, especially since they don't even bother changing the label on the box as far as I can tell. Werdnae (talk) 21:43, 26 October 2012 (UTC)


Can someone add a Credits/Staff link so B2W2 links to Staff of Pokémon Black and White 2? --Abcboy (talk) 03:38, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I took out the template for that (used as a subtemplate) when I made the current design. But that was also because I wasn't really sure on how to use it here. Alas, is it really necessary? SatoMew 16:53, 25 October 2012 (UTC)


Please protect. --Abcboy (talk) 20:10, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Current version

Add field for that because X and Y receive updates TorchicBlaziken (talkedits) 23:39, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, what is it you are requesting we add? --Spriteit (talk) 06:12, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
I believe the request is for another category that tells the version the game is on, since patches are now a thing. For example, X and Y are on 1.1. --Wynd Fox 06:32, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Ahh, okay then, I don't think it is too necessary at the current time, a mention in the article, yes, but unless there are any other significant patches I think it should be fine. Especially since its been stated that they don't want to release DLC for the game. --Spriteit (talk) 06:57, 3 November 2013 (UTC)


Can there be a spot to the right of the name for the icon used on the 3DS/Wii U Home screen? glikglak 23:28, 27 March 2015 (UTC)


Instead of having "N/A" as the default, can we change it to "—" instead? レシイラムtalk 11:04, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Is there a reason to? glikglak 13:47, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
As the person responsible for the current template, I now consider the addition of ratings to be a mistake since a lot of games don't have them. We might as well get rid of the section altogether. The "external links" section could be used instead to provide sources to the ratings, if available and possible. SatoMew2 (talk) 13:56, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
The dash makes it much more obvious that a game wasn't rated for a specific region*. And I just feel like the dash is neater. ratings_by_kimbachu-d9cyb4q.png
Alternatively we could add the {{#if: parameter and omit ratings altogether if a game wasn't rated in a specific region. Maybe that's a better idea. It satisfies SatoMew's suggestion, too. レシイラムtalk 09:50, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Player character(s)

Can we add a "Player character(s)" field to the template? For example: Brendan and May, Hilbert and Hilda, etc. While this is often thought to be a region-specific, or even generation-specific (e.g. Kris/Lyra) attribute, it is actually game-specific (i.e. Generation V). In this way it differs from other attributes such as "villainous team" which are more region-specific. In particular I noticed that Hilbert/Hilda are not mentioned at all in the whole page for Pokémon Black and White Versions, which seems wrong. Kidburla (talk) 15:59, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
