Professor OWNING Chiramii?

The article mentions that the Professor seems to own a Chiramii, but I think it's showing at the intro when the Professor shows you a random Pokemon to show you what a Pokémon even is. The Professors don't necessarily own the Pokémon they show to you as an example. --AuraGaurdian 14:37, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

    • (I like my translations better, no offense...although I did misread "Mamepato". Now edited above)—Urutapu 16:57, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. This might just be me sort of new at translating, but Hihidaruma and Megroco's abilities sound really off to me. First thing I thought of when I saw the former's ability was "Brute Power", but I guess that's the same (just sounds.. simpler?).. I kinda figured that Overconfident might be a pun on 'earthquake' (じしん), but I'm probably wrong. Tina 18:45, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
I initially thought it was an Earthquake pun too, but "jishinkajō" is an actual word. It might be a pun on earthquake, though, like Draco Meteor. In any case, Mamepato's ability needs to be called Pigeon Chest. It's an actual thing.—Urutapu 18:48, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

More scans and info Arty2 17:18, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Reshiram is a Dragon/Fire type; ability appears to be "Turbo Brace". Referred to as the White Yang (はくよう) Pokémon.
  • Zekrom is a Dragon/Electric type with the ability "Terravoltage". Referred to as the Black Yin (こくいん) Pokémon.—Urutapu 17:33, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Reshiram's ability is Turbo Blaze (ターボブレイズ), Zekrom's is Tera Voltage (テラボルテージ). - Taylor 17:52, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Romanization disputes

Alrighty, I've gone around fan sites and rounded up a vast majority of the romanization disputes. Bolded are the ones we're using.

  • Chillarmie/Chiraamii/Chiramii/Chiramy/Chiraamyi
  • Gearl/Giaru/Gear/Gears
  • Mamepato/Mamebato/Mamehato
  • Megroco/Meguroko
  • Munna/Mun'na
  • Blaze/Flaming
  • Child Pigeon/Baby Pigeon

So, what do you all think? This is for use on the article, therefore talk page worthy.--immewnitythemew 02:15, 12 June 2010 (UTC)


Are you sure it "causes the foe to float"? In the scan itself-the user's floating, I see no foe doing so. Please, thank you. YukitoOoO 03:07, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Walking Pokémon?

in one of the scans on the article, I see what look like walking Pokémon. Are they confirmed for this game, or were they only in that one event?--Darknesslover5000 10:12, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

It's unknown atm.--immewnitythemew 20:18, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Well I'll keep my finger's crossed.--Darknesslover5000 23:21, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
