Mine is simply, if I find that it works, it works, though the games take highest precedent.

Anyone mind if I do a writeup for Anville Town and Nimbasa City?

Also, my hierarchy:

Games>Basic logic>My own ideas>Anime>Misc.

Well, I don't know. I might change it.

Also, I might add some more in there such as the Galactic Commanders later.

You complete me.
Canon preferences are for Star Wars and assholes, we take wgat works and use it, end if story. You want to know what my heirachy is? Pokemon.

This is a canon welding project from the get go, and in any case, it's heavily implied that Team Rocket was involved in the game.

Didn't N take a Dragon with malicious intent? That seems illlegal.

I seriously can't be live you're using something as ethereal as art style to declare "canon incompatibility" and Giovanni got so little screen time in the Anime it'd be impossible to get a characterization, it's obvious that you're letting your dislike for the Anime cloud your judgment, an obviously biased outlook that is incompatible with those project, I suggest you fix that for the benefit of the rest of us, nobody wants your petty dislikes screwing up our articles.

^ To be fair, PokÚmon is about as big as Star Wars...

I don't see why we can't be allowed to have some preferences for what we let influence the articles we write. We already have some wildly divergent styles for article tone (compare Neo Crimson's writing to Calamity Jane's writing).

So I'm an "asshole" for not watching the anime or reading the manga?

Here's the thing, even if we did take all the adaptations into consideration, some things will clash, and we have to leave info out.

I consider the games to be source material, and the anime and manga to just be adaptations. Also, that asshole remark was uncalled for.

As Justice implied that because we have preferences we are not apt to write articles, I'll gladly remind him to do Justice to his name before he gets thumped. EDIT: too late. We are allowed to have preferences and I don't see how we are declaring canon "incompatibility". As far as I read from since 10 posts above or so, we are only declaring where we prefer to draw canon information from, we haven't, and can't, decry a source of canon as noncanon. Also you better fix your tone and apologize, it is a great disrespect to those who have already done a great work to merely call us "petty dislikes" and "assholes".

Called us biased for preferring one canon over the other and how it affects how we write our articles. (This is the toned down nice version of what he said)

He called us assholes because our preferences for certain parts of the franchise was damaging to the project as a whole.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!

Well.

To clarify, I was only referring that Neo Crimsom's comments on the anime were disrespectful, and that it wasn't fair to discount certain continuitites. (The Star Wars was a references to there Letter Canon system).

We should respect all of Pokemon, not just what we like, and integrate everything into the articles that works; Mewtwo's connection with Team Rocket is not only the source of most of his plot (his in-game showings being quite sparse) but since the Games are deliberately vague about the process, the canons are not incompatible as he said, while choosing to hold some aspects over another will be necessary, outright ignoring canon just because you don't like the source material is overall harmful to the project.

I apologize if any. Of you were offended by my comment, I just didn't want this to become some caste system wee everybody can just go Fix Fic on everything, and Neo's post seemed to hint that he was going down that road.

The work you guys have put in over the past year is something I would never want to discount, and my post was inspired by, a admitable overzealous, desire to keep personal opinions out of the quality of the work done here so far.

So some sources, that you may not be aware of that could help.

Dragonfree (cave of dragon flies): She's really great, her Syther fic giving some of the best insight into poke-society I've seen in a fic, the site also has a lot of world building aspects that fit into the nature of this project.

Serebii fora: Serebii is part of the "Holy Trinity" of Pokemon fansites, and it's fora are a breeding ground for new ideas; simple fic browsing can lead to a bevy of ideas.

Bulbagarden-Origin of Species: The Oo S articles over at bulba are some of the most stellar analyze I've seen. The jynx article is a beauty in of itself, really good background data for some Pokemon whose origins may be less known. (Woobat, for one)

Ill post something tomorrow, either my Desert Civ, or Litwick article, I'd like to call Golett's line as well.

And once again, I never meant to insult any of you, shoot I don't even have an article up, I'd never demand an edit negatively, even when I don't like it (like Aura/Obscura). My only remarks have been suggested additions. Neo you've made some great articles and I don't want to assume my comments mean I see an enmity with you, I just feel as if your viewpoint could leads us down a dangerous path.

We were just talking about how we prioritize the adaptations. For one thing, the anime is often so ridiculous with handling some aspects of the Pokemon world, that we kind of have to ignore it. Also, it's hard to include information from adaptations you don't watch/read. Also, it's the Fanon Pokedex, we're allowed to piece information together as we see fit.

Well, it is rather difficult to include information about a manga I don't read...

Exactly.

I don't watch the anime, so I can't put anything about that in either.

And I explicitly stated "the manga I know" and "if I ever get to them" (the Pinball games).
