Basically, DNA is weird and is hard to understand unless you have studied it extensively.

This is why TV shows are frequently accused of Did Not Do The Research, things aren't as simple as they initially seem.

@Jane: Cells and atoms are completely different, Cells are made of atoms. Atoms form matter, cells form life.

Cells are far larger than atoms.

I'm still very hesitant to zap an entire paragraph of the article.
This is gonna take a while.

The paragraph in question also has severe errors with regards to genetics, I could hardly make sense of it myself, and I'm a halfway-decent biologist.

Point is, it doesn't make sense to us, but it's ultimately your choice.

I just think that no-one would miss one paragraph in an otherwise well-written article.

Fine then. Away it goes. How's this?

I'd say some reworking about investigation proving its composition at a small scale was utterly alien, while on the outside it didn't seem to be very different from regular Pokemon, that nothing is known about its inner works, for example due to BIZARRE readings from MRI...

Just my opinion. It is still a great entry anyway, keep up the good work.

Would Giratina even fit in an MRI?

[up] I'm pretty sure they have MRIs for really big Pokemon like Wailord.

How about this then?

An attempt to study a removed scale of Giratina melted the computer, so as of this writing there is no information available on how Giratina works on a cellular level.
This is gonna take a while.
The newborn Giratina would fit easily... Whether it'd stay still and not fade out of and into existance would be something else.

And yeah, general crash on an specialiced computer is fine.

[up][up] I suppose that could work. I'd also try to play up the more eldritich aspects of Giratina, like the others have been saying.

why would they have MRIs when they could likely have specially trained psychic/electric pokemon that could sense internal composition/working better than any machine? A more likely scenario is that a [insert electric pokemon here] tried to get a bioelectric reading from Giratina and ended up knocked out for an entire day, or something like that.

Mix it all together aaaand...!  *

An attempt to study a removed scale of Cynthia’s Giratina melted the computer, so as of this writing there is no information available on how Giratina works on a cellular level. Another attempt at understanding Giratina was enacted by a man’s Luxray, attempting to get a bioelectric reading from Giratina, and after a few attempts began to screech and immediately fainted, not reviving until 37 hours later. With this in mind, an MRI was brought instead to a week-old Giratina, but no viable information could be gathered due to Giratina having been in the middle of a game and constantly using Shadow Force to disappear and reappear in the most inopportune moments.

OT: It looks pretty good. Now to finally get around towards overhauling the Aron entry.

heh, I'm currently eating a sandwich for lunch myself.

anyway, I like it, though for some odd reason, I pictured an Electabuzz doing the reading, but whatever.

↑↑↑Cool, and quite what I would expect to hear from experimenting with a Legendary first-hand. Plus, it reads more or less how my female cat behaves when we take her to the vet  *.

↑The Luxray tried to X-ray Giratina probably, and saw Things Thisworldly Pokémon Were Not Meant To Know.

I wonder what would happen if Giratina and Deoxys met and the latter tried to mind-read the former.

Your army sucks.
Just because it's an Eldritch Abomination doesn't mean it's so far beyond human comprehension that scientifically speaking it doesn't even exist.

Yes, yes it does. That is kind of the point. A being so far beyond us that our puny minds can't and won't ever be able to understand.

Jane I recommend you read some Lovecraft to get a better idea.

[up][up] Nothing pleasant, I'd imagine. Alternatively, they understand each other perfectly—which somehow seems more horrific, in my opinion.

evil grinI feel like the entry is missing a pothole:

One of Giratina's quirks are playing many, many, many games whenever it becomes bored, ranging from a high-stakes version of "The Floor Is Now Lava" to something as utterly mundane and somehow adorable as a tea party.

evil grin again!

↑Perhaps with some Jive Turkey idiomatic much?

I'd assume that they'd mutually think that the other are Abominations of Nature and try to kill each other. Like what I assume happened with Rayquaza and Deoxys.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!
Didn't Rayquaza start to attack because the meteor almost hit it? Also, territory intrusion. Deoxys, I'd guess it'd get annoyed by getting half his body blown out; otherwise IIRC it is fairly uninteractive.

Neo: I don't think a fullblown reality warping sanity blasting quasidemonic sentient immortal personification of madness and death that comes from the stars is really in line with how this project's been written... Since that's what a traditional Cosmic Horror usually is.

Yeah probably, but I have Warhammer40k on the brain and thus the "purge the Xenos!" mindset.
