Until I get server-side logging put in, feel free to ask me to pastebin any conversations from the chat I was present for. (My computer apparently caught a bit of a chat between Silent Reverence and Tracer Bullet while it was downloading updates last night, but only the tail end.)
Conversation is a contact sport.

I think I have the log of my conversation to post it in the pastebin. It was mostly about the Pidove line and the work I have to do with the Latii entry.

EDIT: done.

Ah. Thanks.

Hmm. Yeah, given Unova's apparent city slant, Pidove fit well as urban dwellers.

You should mention that non-urban Pidove live on cliffsides and inside ocean caves, just like real rock pigeons in the Middle East and Europe.

Guess Who...?
The things seem to be everywhere, seeing as you can bump into them readily in forest settings. Also, is it a correct presumption that individuals in the Pidove line become progressively less suited to urban habitation as they evolve (*cough* their final form is a pheasant *cough*)? Also, do these things seem like something that human beings would be comfortable eating (seeing as they apparently eat other 'mons, including a certain duck from Kanto...)?

Dignity. Ease. Disease.
Pokémon Centers

Purpose

Pokémon and their trainers need a place to rest at times. To fill this need, Pokémon Centers can be found in mostly every city and town in the world. These buildings function as a combination of hospitals, hostels, and meeting areas. In Kanto-Johto, Sinnoh, and Hoenn Pokémon Centers are run with financial backing by the Pokémon League. In Unova, Pokémon Centers get their funding by running Poké Marts inside the building.

Functions/Duties

For any trainer traveling throughout a region, a Pokémon Center is a welcome sight. In these buildings, Trainers can rest both themselves and their battle-weary Pokémon. For normal battle wounds, there is a machine that rejuvenates Pokémon right inside the Poké Balls in a matter of seconds — the method of which is kept a secret by the machine's creator. For more serious injuries, all Pokémon Centers have an ICU where expert Pokémon doctors practice their craft.

There are also meeting areas where trainers can hang out, participate in friendly battles, or trade Pokémon.

Programs

  • Pokémon Professors sometimes drop by Centers to hold small seminars with new trainers in the local area.
  • Each Center holds a small arena where trainers can do "friendly" battles.

Notes

  • The colloquial term for the desk nurses is "Nurse Joy."
  • Members of the Chansey evolutionary line are often "employed" here. An exception is in Unova's Pokémon Centers.
  • All Pokémon Centers have a public PC for Trainers to use. Mostly they are used for communication with the Trainer's friends and relatives (among other obvious things).
  • Pokémon Centers regularly advertise on radio and television with a distinctive jingle that never seems to leave one's head.

((What do you think, sirs?))

I'm not sure if I'd include the bit about Nurse Joy, seeing as there's numerous nurses that don't look remotely similar to Nurse Joy in the games.

People eat pigeons and pheasants. I don't really see a problem.

^^^ should probably mention Chanceys/Blisseys too, as I'm pretty sure they can be found in any medical establishment.

The Joy family can operate many facilities, but I doubt that all Pokémon Center employees come from the family.

I think yeah they do. I think it might be sort of a 'it's been passed down from generation to generation and no one has gone against it in all of history' sort of thing.
This is gonna take a while.

Veterinarian Nurse vs. Doctor Nurse. And Teala aren't nurses, they don't do any healing. The Pokemart Employees work inside a Pokemon Center but they don't do any healing.

What if a non-Joy wants to work in a Center? Surely they aren't forced to travel to Orre...

Exactly. If 'Sara Johnson' is a Sister, then she is 'Sister Johnson'.
