Where did the information on Yveltal's name pronunciation come from? I'm somewhat skeptical about it being a direct shout-out like it says on the character page.

Does anyone know where Delphox stands competitively with Chesnaught and Greninja in non-single battle environments? I can already say that it will have the edge over Victini at VGCs simply because Victini is not allowed at them.

Inferior. The Edgequake and Surf weakness is bad enough, but Delphox also lacks in auxiliary moves, while Chesnaught has Spiky Shield and Greninja has Mat Block.

What's Edgequake?

Edgequake is the combination of Stone Edge and Earthquake for physical coverage. It's pretty common to have both attacks on competitive teams on at least 2 Pokémon.

While the Norse theory is easily the most popular, I feel that maybe we could open up a discussion about other potential theories that are overlooked that are just as fitting as it.

For instance, I feel that the Hindu theory mentioned in the Fridge Brillance page has some of merit to it. The three aspects that are represented by the trio, life, destruction, and order/balance, are concepts that are associated with the Hindu Triad Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu respectively and would fit into the idea that the three concepts are balancing elements. On top of that, Ananta Shesha is the multi-headed lord of all Nagas who's associated with Vishnu, fits the design concept of Zygarde as the five appendages coming from its head look similar to faces. Shesha is also notable in that if it coils forward or backwards, creation will either take place or the universe will cease to exist, which would be fitting for Zygarde being the "leader" of the trio.

The theories should just stay off the main character page and be kept in YMMV.

At which point then I have to question the addition of the Norse Theory to the character page as well. It's plausible, but just like it's counterparts it doesn't have anything conclusive to it that isn't fan speculation. The only thing it has is that "it's popular," which doesn't make it anymore accurate.

It's a double standard to allow one theory into the character page and yet reject another regardless of its potential feasibility as well.

Yeah, all these theories ought to be put in YMMV or WMG.
MagBas

This is a recurring problem in "reference" tropes; personally, i guess that, with the exception of examples confirmed by Word of God, the examples of said tropes are closer to speculation.

Yeah, and that's something I've been noticing. I'm not going to say that the theories are completely offbase or nonfactual, but the problem with those examples is that not only are they arguable (which comes with speculation), but they can also have equal standing with other theories and fan ideas, in which case we'd have to cater to all those theories.

Personally, I agree with Septimus Heap about this. As popular as these theories are, they're still theories based in speculation and we shouldn't place one above the others. It's probably best just to leave them on the YMMV or WMG page unless we have something more concrete. That way, the theories are recognized but are still understood to be mostly speculation on the part of the fans.

New question: When can we leak Volcanion ans the other two secret Mons?

And Mega Lati@s?

When are we allowed to spoil the final starter evos being leaked?

When the games are released... Which is about a week.

Because we don't want to be sued and/or get a cease and desist order.

Also, for the same reason we bother with spoiler tags anywhere.
PDL
06:06:52 AM Oct 7th 2013
Because maybe... People may not actually want to be completely spoiled before the games actually come out? Isn't that the craziest?

It really isn't hard to wait 5 more days.

Wait, people can get sued for this?

Then how does Wikileaks stay afloat?!

Do Furabebe have one leg or two legs? The fan art made me confused.

It seems like the lower half of its body resembles the lower half of a flower.

Is it me or does Fennekin look more of a pre-evolve form of Ninetales than Vulpix does?

It says there are over 150 new pokemon. Where is the source of this info? That's the first I've heard of it.

Where did they get info justifying that "six meters" claim?
partner555
09:37:55 PM Jan 11th 2013
According to Serebii, it's actually 5.8m, but I still don't know about the 150 new pokemon thing.
Cider
10:56:15 AM Jan 13th 2013
Oh, here is another one. How do we know Fennekin has psychic moves yet? Because it had a pink/purple looking attack? Hyper beam was purple in Black2 White2's trailer.
MJTrooper

I think we have an edit war on whether Fennekin can use Psychic-type moves or not. I hope it gets resolved before the mods have to do something extreme.

In the past, we've used the in-game sprites to represent each Pokémon. With X and Y being completely 3D, how will we represent the new Pokémon?

we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

We'll probably do whatever Bulbapedia is going to end up doing. I'm guessing the Pokedex will have nice neutral poses on a nice neutral background and can be screencapped.
Eriorguez

Either official art, or pics of the models. I'd say the older gens would get an update as well...
Cider
11:25:08 AM Jan 11th 2013
It seems unnecessary to stretch out the image up loader just to "update" designs that will not be changing just because there happens to be an art shift. For the new mons, the Pokedex will likely have stills.
Eriorguez
05:52:31 PM Jan 11th 2013
Well, we'll wait and see, but I kinda doubt it, seeing how they like their 3D...
urutapu
06:02:13 PM Jan 11th 2013
The gen 5 Pokedex had stills instead of animated sprites. I think we'll be okay in gen 6.
Eriorguez
07:50:16 PM Jan 11th 2013
Stills that could be animated. Not to mention, having an actual sprite still, and having an image of a model, are different things.
Carls493
09:45:09 PM Jan 11th 2013
It could either be non-animated stills, or we could end up using miniaturized versions of the official art.

Even though it would cause an Art Shift, should we have to use official art for the Gen VI Pokémon, let's only focus on them and not try to change the rest of the generations.
Eriorguez
10:26:25 AM Jan 12th 2013
The rest of the generations used the BW sprites because these pages started to flourish around the time the BW sprites were ripped, on the basis that official art would leave event Pokemon out, and Mystery Dungeon portaits would leave the 5th gen out. I agree on the image server being overloaded would be a bit of a problem, but, if this gen introduces new members of old families, we are going to run into a bit of trouble. In my opinion, I'd have all 7 as of now pages consistent in terms of images, but first lets see if we get some sort of image file out of the new games when they come out; I have yet to see stuff ripped out of a 3DS game...
Eriorguez
07:55:50 AM Feb 12th 2013
Well, gen VI includes new evolutions.
JTroper
03:43:42 PM Aug 17th 2013
And new forms.

All right, whoever keeps changing the character page, for love of God please stop! First you had the leaked starter evos and some other pokemon that aren't "official" like Diggersby, then you took them down again but left Fletchinder and Heliolisk, Make. up. your minds. Already.
