This article needs to be expanded drastically...I'm doing it slowly but surely...it's hard in simple English...anyone want to help? Tezkag72 (talk) 04:59, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

In the section, "Shiny Pokemon", what does this mean: "there is only a 1-in-8,192 chance of a random Pokémon being shiny"?

What being "shiny" is is defined in the same paragraph. EVula // talk // // 21:15, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Template[change source]

I have made a Pokemon template. here How do you like it? I used the Mario template as a base. Blake (Talk·Edits) 20:04, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Redirect some articles[change source]

I am not sure about the notablitity rules arround here, but this is my suggestion. The ones I say to keep are definitely notable. The others just need to have a better written article before they show their face again. SimpleWiki=/=StubWiki.

  • Keep:

Bulbasaur  • Ivysaur  • Charmander  • Charizard  • Squirtle  • Pikachu  • Jigglypuff  • Mewtwo  • Mew (Pokémon)  • Mudkip  • Lucario

  • Delete/Redirect:

Venusaur  • Charmeleon  • Caterpie  • Spearow  • Fearow  • Raichu  • Ekans  • Arbok  • Mankey  • Primeape  • Bellsprout  • Geodude  • Ponyta  • Rapidash  • Onix  • Eevee  • Aerodactyl  • Articuno  • Zapdos  • Moltres  • Togepi  • Lugia  • Ho-oh  • Regice  • Dialga  • Manaphy  • Arceus
I also think there needs to be a List of Pokémon with at least some of the Starters and legendaries. I dont think things like Bellsprout need mentioning though. Blake (Talk·Edits) 15:58, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Hello? If nobody says anything by the end of the day, I might have to take this to AfD. Blake (Talk·Edits) 12:37, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Notable Pokemon[change source]

You people could make a few more Pokemon character articles if you wanted. Jynx, Mr. Mime, Kadabra, and plenty of other Pokemon have good reception. I am too lazy to simplify the English articles, and don't want to get yelled at for "not simplifying" when I tried my best. Blake (Talk·Edits) 22:14, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Pronunciation[change source]

I have never heard /ˈpɒkimɒn/ used as an official pronunciation. Besides, the word is Japanese, so it should be /pokemon/ (or /ˈpoʊkeɪmɒn/ as an English approximation). 01:02, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
