Should we bother including the Japanese names of the characters? If so, should we include the Japanese names of the Pokémon as well?
These are English articles after all, thus I would assume most people reading these would be familiar with the English games and media.
Is this really an example? It looks like something 4chan cooked up, along the lines of the Gygias is a foetus "theory" they inadvertently got all the new fans to believe. Similar to that one, it hides one or two points that are a bit of a stretch or rely heavily on assumption among other points that are true or at least much more plausible, and combines them all to "prove" something that's wild enough to tickle the conspiracy theorists in people.
I do believe that Gary's Raticate died, but none of the stuff on that picture is true. Gary asked something along the lines of 'What are you doing here? Your Pokemon don't look dead! But I can make them faint.' And Gary isn't some woobie, he's an asshole who hid in the Silf Tower just to fight you and didn't help any of the people escape the Rockets. He's scolded by his grandfather because he doesn't care for his Pokemon.
So yeah, his Raticate disappearing from his party might be Fridge Horror, but the rest of it a load of crap.

How well does it match the trope?
