Talk:Black and White not to be followed by a third version

"Unconfirmed" Question

This is something I really don't understand, and this is a serious inquiry. Bulbapedia/Bulbanews will not allow the leaked, "unconfirmed" list of all the Gen V Pokemon to be posted anywhere, but "unconfirmed" news about Gen V not having a third version is allowed. I really do not understand this. Why are some unconfirmed stories allowed and others aren't? Jivjov 00:30, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I think the key is that this is a story about unconfirmed information, while things like the leaked list are unconfirmed information. The story is that unconfirmed information has come out, so it reveals what the unconfirmed info is. However, the info itself doesn't yet have a firm basis, so it should not be integrated into Bulbapedia until more is known.
And yes, there was an article mentioning the leaked list in Bulbanews, simply reporting that a leaked list had come out. Sorry for the rambling, but it's a little hard to explain easily. (Anyone more knowledgeable about how this works, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.)--RiverAura 00:23, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Misleading title

The title implies that Black and White are going to be the only games for Gen V. However, there are Gen V spin-offs in the making and lots of speculation of a Ruby and Sapphire remake, so I think the title should be at least renamed into something less misleading. Maybe "Black and White might not get a third version".-Ninterror 14:11, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

The new title solves this initial implication but is very strange! ("Third version to Generation V to not be on 3DS" - two 'to's and split infinitive) Colintron 17:51, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree that the title is strange, but it'll be hard to change that now.--immewnitythemew 21:46, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

First sentence

"In an interview with Spanish site Meristation, game developer Mana Ibe indicated that the fifth generation's story may end with third game for Generation V will not be released on the 3DS. " - This sentence doesn't make sense; it seems its intended meaning was forgotten at 'with'. Colintron 17:51, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Trom fixed that now.--immewnitythemew 21:46, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Unused moves

The article says that the moves would only be learnable by Kyurem but since nothing learns them yet, shouldn't it say that they are speculated to be eventual moves of Kyurem.--MisterE13 01:10, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Backwards translation

Have any of you tried to translate it back to Spanish then to Japanese and then back to English you get this "No, not at all. We finished in black and white version of this article. s." It doesn't make much sense, but we can assume that it might just be saying that the article that this passage is taken from's last subject they are taking about is the new games, Black and White.
