Thank you, and have a good time editing here!
We've decided to go ahead and reverse your edits to the game articles regarding "upper" games. I wanted to take a moment to discuss and explain the reason for this.
We did find this interview using the term and realize this is where the term came from. Our concern with using the term is that the term is merely something that they use internally, and not something that has been announced or is given widespread use. In the future, if the term does gain widespread following, and it starts to appear as a regular term in game guides and the like, then it may be something we may move to in the future. In the present climate, and for the sake of article readability, we have determined that it's best mentioned at the core series page as a term that they use, and no where else at this time. I hope you understand. =)
With that said, it's still important that we consistently describe the relationship of a third game or sequel. It's more important that we make sure the same term is used consistently for the same type of game (for instance, don't call Emerald a "third game" and call Platinum a "solitary game" as they are the same type of game, hence they need the same term). If you do find inconsistencies in that, you are welcome to correct them if appropriate. CycloneGU (talk) 02:11, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
