The PokÚdex - Extended Fanon Edition:
How many Caster avvies do I have now?That sounds like a decent explanation to me. Making it harder so the Professors get less "competition", so to speak.
You complete me.Than whatare the jusyificstions for nomstarters with said ratios. You cant jusy turn expkanstions on and off, you have to be consistant. Why nit use the cave of dragonflies explsnstion?
adopting kittehThat N-1 lines share the same evolutionary gender ratio, Ability or whatever does not mean that N lines share ir for the same reason. If the temperatures average to just that right gender ratio (why would it work like that for Torchic and Cyndaquil, anyway?) then it can be half the explanation. As for the Cave of Dragonflies theory on gender determination, I personally like it, but it relies too much on the technicall implementation of the mechanic - any future generation can blast it as easy as introducing just one new mon.
You complete me.Sotry, I got a table for Christmas and Im using it exclusvly to see how in the hel its any better thqn my lwptop.
dy/dxAre they really rare in-universe, though? Why would the professors have any interest in keeping them that way?
Conversation is a contact sport.
nonarySpadeI guess as a balancing mechanism? The starters are chosen because they are ideal partners for trainers, and having too many would cheapen that.
You complete me.The fire/water/grass thing works well for beginners. Bo in and out of universe.
dy/dxThe world is far bigger than the rather small minority of beginning trainers who get their first Pokemon from a professor (or even just according to a theme), though. And do any canons even imply they are, in fact, especially rare?
Conversation is a contact sport.
You complete me.They are impossible to catch in the games.
insert title hereand even if they can be caught wild, the wild ones probably don't make for as good starters as the ones raised for that purpose.
adopting kittehA fair point is that yes, starters delivered as Starters are bred and trained for that purpose. For that matter, they wouldn't necessarily be the 15 Fire/Water/Grass families only, but also theoretically apply to starters and mons passed down by family heritage, as at least two anime episodes (one related to Brock) suggest. The anime and manga have wild starter lines, though they are more or less implied to be scarce, or hard to find (early Johto at least; dunno about early Unova). Or particular note, starters in the games are not delivered only as Starters but also as gifts or plot prizes.
How many Caster avvies do I have now?"Oh, good. Umbramatic is about to settle this thing." Sorta appropriate. Still busy with Real Life holiday stuff, but I'm still getting Thundurus work in, and I think the paste will be up tomorrow. For now, since nobody currently seems to have any more suggestions on it, I'm putting Tornadus on the wiki - I figure the shorter length is acceptable since there's not much we know about these guys yet. Also, I claimed Golett, and I'm thinking about doing Poochyena and/or Shroomish soon, since I haven't done anything for Gen. 3 yet.
You complete me.The fire/water/grass dichtonmy is good for beginners in and out of universe.
IOU one titleI finally started White, but I've totally forgotten how to evenly create and level up a balanced team, which is as weird as it is embarassing.
The WandererI think you've got the wrong thread.
How many Caster avvies do I have now?Ho Ho Ho! Santa Slowpoke has brought you a belated Christmas present! http://pastebin.tropi.us/29 Thundurus is ready for feedback!

Hm?The Thundurus entry looks pretty good - seems like it mainly just needs links to tropes. For the destruction of Milos Island, you might want to reference the Long Island Express
How many Caster avvies do I have now?References to that for Tornadus/Thundurus rampages would be cool. I'l have to find a way to edit that into both of their articles.

Whisperer in DarknessMade a small edit to the Zekrom article; added just a little something to the In Popular Culture section which I think may get a little chuckle out of you guys.
Your army sucks.brb renaming my Zekrom Alduin.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!
nonarySpadeRename your Reshiram Akatosh.
How many Caster avvies do I have now?I'm torn over whether to do the same. I like how he's Cherbanog right now, but that Skyrim reference in the article is so tempting... Damn you, Sullen. Damn you and your awesome reference. Speaking of which, you gonna incorporate the ones I reccomended? Not that they compare to that... EDIT: V2 of Thundurus paste: http://pastebin.tropi.us/8c . Still needs suggestions.

The WandererThough now that I think about it Dialga would probably be a closer reference to Alduin.
