This page needs a cleanup horribly. There are a load of Zero Context Examples, improper Example Indentation, and some Conversation In The Main Page. I've already purged a bit but I'm not knowledgeable enough on the series to fix some of the ZC Es.

This is an English language wiki, so why use the Japanese Blue/Green instead of the English Green/Blue?

I'm new to the fandom, so I may be wrong but I speculate that it may be because the people here want to stick to the original names and ONLY the originals to minimise confusion.

Sep 29th 2014 at 12:15:55 AM •••

Why exactly does this page use the Japanese names of characters and the manga at all, barring untranslated elements? Even Bulbapedia stopped doing that after Viz rebooted its publication. After the rerelease of the volumes based on Gen I with unaltered art, only Emerald and XY haven't been published yet (and even then, only FireRed/LeafGreen and Black and White are missing any volumes out of the ones that have had any volumes translated; heck, both the magazine and standard editions of Black and White are being published).

No problem. I just don't know who made the decision to use the Japanese names so I thought taking it to ATT would be the best solution. For all I know the mods will want the English names listed first.

The quote at the top of the page. Can we use a different one? That one is largely taken out of context since it's over ten years old and this was the truest at the time of that quote, but not anymore (Zensho takes the cake, along with a few other manga arguably).

I don't think there's any other quote out there that can be used for the whole series. Hence why that quote is still up there.

Aug 28th 2010 at 11:43:35 PM •••

Also, your Character Derailment entry... I think it's wrong. I mean, come on, game verse and PokeSpe manga verse are naturally different. There's a reason, for example, Ruby and Sapphire aren't named "Brendan and May"; they aren't them. This is also the reason why nowadays, in the HGSS arc, we get Archer and Ariana again because they were previously Keane and Chermaine, when in the games they're the same but nameless.

Honestly, Character Derailment is an exaggeration. That should only be used if they're inconsistent within the same verse.

Aug 29th 2010 at 5:17:41 PM •••

If we can have that on the anime page, why not on Pokespe's page?

Aug 31st 2010 at 2:43:20 AM •••

Which else?

The Pokemon anime's page. See, it has an entry. If this page can't have one, then neither should that one since that is an alternate continuity too.

This page has entries comparing and contrasting it to the anime so why can't it have that sort of comparison?

Edited by
Aug 31st 2010 at 8:07:50 AM •••

Well, that one is also quite unfair, but since I care not for the Pokemon anime, I'm not about to go defending the characters there...

Anyways, Character Derailment mostly happens within a same verse/work, if you check the trope's page. As the Pokemon verses currently stand, however, the characters are more like Cross Canon Counterparts and aren't to be taken as the same person.

Well, I'll have to get the other one moved off the page.

About the derailment again.

The anime has listed it under Adaptation Decay. Should we put them back up and list them under Decay?

Sep 25th 2010 at 6:48:49 PM •••

That sounds much better XD

After all, the manga is an adaptation of the games, isn't it? (even when the game characters didn't have much of a personality back in the heyday... mmm... what do you think?)

Aug 28th 2010 at 10:55:21 PM •••

Aren't the Shout-Out's Mythology Gag's since they're from the same franchise, but not the same continuity?

Um, other than the whole censorship debacle (Just my two cents: I don't like it, but I just paste in the uncensored pages into my copies), nicknames! Coronis, Chuang Yi, or Viz? Aibo for Ataro is more appropriate than it should be. Other than that, I have no opinion, so I leave the squabbling to you my dear fellow tropers.

I'd like to point out that it's Shiny Noctowl venting out his anger about Viz here that's the problem. I myself prefer Chuang Yi over Viz (CY is cheaper in my country) and I'm not really bothered by how Viz is more popular.

Aug 5th 2010 at 12:57:20 PM •••

Shiny Noctowl, really, I'm telling you this as a friend: I don't want the mods or the admins to retaliate against you, or worse, for your edits to cause a serious backlash against the Chuang Yi version which you adore so much. You know I've been helping you keep this page neutral and fitting everyone's perceptions of the manga; I want to help you, so please listen.

An admin or mod from this page removed the YMMV first. And several users have pointed that out to you already in their comments over the edits. Please, understand we're doing this because, perhaps, you're the only one with this point of view. The topic you made over at Bulbagarden just kind of proved it when everyone began saying they'd buy Viz's version.

Please, this edit war can't go on forever. You already got banned for two days from Bulbagarden over this, don't commit the same mistake here.

Edited by KayiRowling
Aug 5th 2010 at 1:18:36 PM •••

I posted this so the admins could give some reasoning for their unexplained removal of the example. Besides, the poll actually proved my point. About 25% prefer Chuang Yi's version; this is certainly a minority, but it's a significant minority.

Aug 5th 2010 at 1:41:04 PM •••

Certainly, some like Chuang Yi better, but I don't think YMMV refers to that; I actually believe that trope is something far more extreme. Both versions are very similar, there isn't much to have a full-blown YMMV over it; if it was between an anime adaptation of Poke Spe and Chuang Yi's version then yes, our mileage will vary like crazy surely. I think that's the reason...

Also, we know you like Chuang Yi, but you don't need to edit the description paragraph of Poke Spe to reflect your opinion only. The last edit is something you caused indirectly; people are starting to notice, and they'll start hating Chuang Yi because of your extremism and you won't ever get a minute of peace again. And I actually found the new description paragraph to be quite neutral toward both versions (it only said that "for those chapters Viz doesn't have yet, go to Chuang Yi's version"), and that's the best you can hope for when Viz is doing its damnest to catch up and Chuang Yi remains being a bitch for not exporting outside of Southeast Asia.

Please, Shiny Noctowl, let's have a peaceful time here at TV Tropes. If you want to express your opinion on Viz's version, buy a volume you already have of Chuang Yi's version, and bash it to hell and back at the reviews. Everyone will know and hear; reviews are a nice way to express your opinion and make sure others get it. An edit war such as this is not so fine and will get you a lot of enemies... Please, consider my words.

OK, Shiny Noctowl, I'm beginning to add specially glaring differences between the versions to the page. It's really sad we lost the Sprout Tower's punny names and stuff, so I added it in favor of Chuang Yi's version as Woolseyism. Please ask before adding or editing something else. I'll help you to be fair to everyone and everything, and to keep it neutral for the benefit of our readers and fellow tropers, OK? We should avoid more conflicts, I'm sure we can make a great page if we all work together!

Aug 6th 2010 at 10:09:41 AM •••

Well, I gave you one reason: YMMV is not what you think it is. Back in the TV Tropes forum, they said so too to you before I did. To top it, they suggested it's a case of Broken Base, and I have been thinking it may actually be a case of Fan Dumb.

You're taking this too far, SN; I'm trying to help you by giving Chuang Yi the Woolseyism point, which is possibly the only good point it has because back at Bulbagarden there were many more posted complaints against Chuang Yi for flipping the manga than for Viz changing Gold's Pokemon name suffixes to "-bo" or censoring Blue's Pokeball boob trick. Also, consider that both versions are essentially the same thing except for these tiny bits most people can simply overlook because they don't mean anything., then, I throw the question back to you: why is this a case of YMMV at all? Do you see anyone else but you complaining about Viz, or Chuang Yi, or pointing out real wild differences between the versions?

Wouldn't adding Broken Base make sense, at least? The poll I posted earlier shows that, while people who prefer Chuang Yi's version are in the minority, there's still a significant number of them.

Aug 6th 2010 at 12:42:39 PM •••

You need more proof than that, really.

Aug 6th 2010 at 12:43:21 PM •••

So the fact that most prefer Viz's version but a significant minority prefer Chuang Yi's isn't enough proof of Broken Base?

Aug 6th 2010 at 12:44:39 PM •••

It may well make sense. But you can't act surprised at moderators stepping in when you resort to argumentum ad vandalism.

YMMV = Love It or Hate It. This is when there is a signifiant split between people who think it's the Holy Grail and another half that think it's the shitiest shit that has been ever shat out. Saying "there is a very small minority that prefer X" is not even on the same level as People Sit On Chairs.

Edited by Glowsquid
Aug 6th 2010 at 1:01:08 PM •••

It's not a very small minority, it's a significant minority. This means that, while most people prefer Viz's version, many others prefer Chuang Yi's.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:04:40 PM •••

For the purpose of YMMV, yes, it's small, or at least not big enough to be considered an even split, which is what YMMV is for.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:06:30 PM •••

If 5 people is a significant minority, then your sample size is too small.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:06:46 PM •••

Wouldn't it still be Broken Base, then, because it's significant enough? One in four isn't exactly tiny.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:08:04 PM •••

The sample size was only so small because apparently asking which version people prefer is flamebait. Although, the fact that asking the question is considered flamebait would seem to indicate that there are large numbers of people on each side.

Edited by
Aug 6th 2010 at 1:18:36 PM •••

Broken Base: Again, that trope is about an even or very signifiant split in the fanbase. There are a number of people that hates The Empire Strike Back with a passion and think it's the worst of the series. But it's not worth noting - the number is too small.

And wat at the Flame Bait thing. There's nothing in either the title or the opening post that suggest it's a touchy subject, or something that has been debated AD Nauseum. No comments like "Not this shit again", nothing. Infact, the only vitriol in that thread is directed at you, which indicates you're the only one to feel so strongly on this issue.

The fact is, regardless of what Viz's Fan Dumb claims, Viz's version is full of Bowdlerizations, mistranslations, and some things changed for no apparent reason. It's a lot like 4Kids's dub of the anime.

The last post says "Since this poll was put up as a place for a now-banned member to verbally abuse anyone who disagreed with him, I'm going to close this. If anyone wants to open a REAL poll, go ahead."

And who started the poll? You, yeah.

Also, nobody cares that Viz's translation is worse than Cancer. "But it REALLY DO SUCKS" never ever worked with the mods. If bad entry is bad, it goes. Simple as that.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:35:30 PM •••

I already pointed out why enough people prefer Chuang Yi's version to make it significant.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:37:24 PM •••

I wasn't "verbally abusing" anyone. I said that I prefer Chuang Yi's version and then listed all of the problems with Viz's version, including Bowdlerizations, mistranslations, etc.

Aug 6th 2010 at 1:38:08 PM •••

As pointed out in this trope, 25% may seem like a lot, but 5 people is still 5 people. No matter how you slice it, that's not a large amount of people.

Why are you? I'm right, and you're wrong. Simple as that.

Aug 6th 2010 at 4:12:09 PM •••

You're not right, snoctowl. Censorship is not always a bad thing.

Out of a random sample of four movies, one of them was in fact improved by censorship. This means that twenty-five percent of movies are improved by censorship. This is a significant minority and cannot be disputed despite the tiny sample size.

If you dispute this figure, I will continue to state that twenty-five percent of films are improved by censorship, and that anyone who thinks censorship is a bad thing is an idiot because twenty-five precent of films are improved by censorship.

This makes Executive Meddling a case of a Broken Base, between idiots that prefer things uncensored, and those that prefer the twenty-five percent of films that are improved by censorship.

Do I have the thrust of your argument yet?

Viz's version is unflipped, but that's its only advantage over Chuang Yi's version. Viz edited the Green vs. Sabrina fight, Viz misspelled Slowpoke as "Slowpoké", Viz ruined the easily-translatable pun with the monks' names, etc. Chuang Yi's version doesn't have any of those problems.

Aug 3rd 2010 at 3:11:51 PM •••

Yes, but Chuang Yi is poorly edited (they forget to flip the Unown so it makes sense), has a serviceable but weak translation (they even forget that Tate is a boy!), and the three things you listed \'\'do not\'\' equal "Blind Idiot" Translation, Disneyification, or anything else you changed. If you\'re so upset about one funny scene and a couple of puns, \'\'point those out.\'\' Oh wait, nevermind. They\'ve \'\'been\'\' pointed out.

Neither translation is \'\'bad\'\'. The worst editing is dropping the pokeball scene and flipping the artwork. The story hasn\'t been changed in either translation. None of those tropes fit either translation. \'\'None.\'\'

If you want an example of a bad translation, check out the fan translations of the ending of the Emerald saga that was on Manga Fox for a while. \'\'That\'\' was \'\'baaaaad.\'\'

But thanks. Let's see if I can fix the removed Manga Fox references to point toward your albums then. Just keep your head low and be prepared. Is that OK with you?

It's down right now. I'm working with my host and the Gallery dev team to get it back up.

Well, it took me half a year, but I finally got to hosting a new server and my own website. The new URL is, and I plan to keep it (no more URL changes, I promise!). Any links to should redirect to my new website soon enough, and I should also have a new Gallery installation to go with it. For now, individual images can still be linked to, so all that has to happen is alteration of the existing links. Sorry for the trouble!

Shiny Noctowl from Bulbagarden Forums has this raging superiority complex and refuses to acknowledge the blindingly obvious fact that the third Sinnoh hero is named Platinum. SN, please stop fucking up this page, ok?

Sooo... Should we revert all the "Lady Berlitz" instances to "Platinum," or for the wisdom of keeping that person off the page not do so?

Is anybody interested in helping out in making the fanime of Pokemon Special? Search for pokespeani to reach their forum. They're very serious in their attempt, but they could really use some more help.

By the looks of it, they've announced that Pokémon Adventure is going to be in the September Anime, but it could be a hoax.

It's a hoax. It has to be. There's no way the Pokemon franchise could handle TWO anime series at the same time. It'd be rivaling itself! That would be just dumb!, it's a hoax.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
