Yeah, you do not move pages of any character until the anime episode airs, which it has not. So next time do not move any pages until the anime has actually aired despite any sources saying so. --Coolピカチュウ! 22:55, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Again... our policy is to wait until the episode airs to change stuff. There is no crime in waiting 4 days for the episode to air- just wait, and then you can change Mitsuzō to whatever he ends up being in the episode. Okay? ▫▪Ťïňắ 19:44, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
We have the "until it airs" policy so that nothing that could potentially be false information can sneak its way into an article, only for us to later have to clean everything up if it does indeed prove false. For all we know, there could be a last-second audio change that involves the character's name being different than what the online preview listing reflects; if we were to reflect what the online preview listed as 100% fact before airtime and such a last-second audio change were to happen, people would distrust us for reflecting false information as 100% fact. As a site that prides itself on accuracy, waiting until it airs helps us avoid snafus like that.
Just for the record, online preview listings have been wrong before. You won't believe how many sources, Bulbapedia included (long before our "until it airs" policies), jumped on the revelation on Saori's dub name having been revealed as "Samantha", only to later be embarrased when her actual dub name turned out to be "Solidad". We'd rather avoid such embarassment again if at all possible. --Shiningpikablu252 00:01, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
