Talk:List of Nintendo event Pokémon in 2008

Korean Rayquaza

"Korean characters are not able to appear on non-Korean versions of the games."

What happens if a Korean person trades a Pokémon with Korean characters in its name to a different language version of the game? --Shiny Noctowl 02:28, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Same thing.--☆CoolPikachu!
So will it change it to the English version of the name, or show up as a bunch of question marks, or what? --Shiny Noctowl 19:06, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Regional names don't change. In trading with them, it appeared as " was sent." or something like that. The name is an empty space. tc26 13:26, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Movie Regigigas

Does the Movie Regigigas have a Classic Ribbon? --Shiny Noctowl 19:47, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

No it doesn't. Trainer-c 20:39, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

UK Darkrai

Is it really Alamos, not ALAMOS ? tc26 10:12, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

No, it's ALAMOS with all caps.Blueapple128 23:50, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Nintedo Power Pikachu

One of my Internet friends traded me a Nintendo Power Pikachu yesterday. It's female and Naive-natured. Since it works on PBR, I think it's legit. Therefore, I added to the Nintendo Power Pikachu table that the Pikachu is female and Naive-natured. Feel free to undo my edit if you've gotten legit male and/or non-Naive Nintendo Power Pikachu. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 01:08, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


Is it possible the Dragonite coming to US is the Saikyou Dragonite? Just a possibility... ht14 19:58, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it's been confirmed that the Dragonite is the Saikyou Dragonite except it's from US, not Japan, and has different OT and ID.
Same moveset, nature, held item.Blueapple128 21:05, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Saikyou Dragonite

Does it really have Intimidate, or did someone mean to put Inner Focus? - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 10:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Netherlands ALAMOS Darkrai

I read that the OT for the "ALAMOS" Darkrai from the Netherlands is not ALAMOS, but OPKOMST. I have no idea what that means, but will someone confirm this?Blueapple128 23:51, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Is the NPower Pikachu hacked?

Read this: Blueapple128 16:46, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Hmm the thread has a really good point. --Coolピカチュウ! 18:19, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I receive Nintendo Power, and I haven't heard even the tiniest hint of an event Pikachu being distributed. I therefore regard this supposed event with extreme suspicion. LordArceus 19:43, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

People also say that it's an unannounced event, making even rarer. *tc26* 23:24, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
The event is legit, but it was only available for a few hours during a Nintendo Power 20th Anniversary Party, and not many people received it. The vast majority of those out there are probably hacks. Here's an album of photos someone took of the event: Pikario 07:36, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
I've re-added the NP Pikachu to the page since it apparently is a legit event. Trainer-c 19:57, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Just noting tat it was a hack. The Placebo Effect 15:04, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


R or Я for Toys "Я" Us? ht14 00:02, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Just leave normal "R" please. I don't want to fix all those redirects I made. *tc26* 07:52, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok then. ht14 14:03, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Anyway, it's better to use regular letters, since people know it even if the R is used, and not everybody has (though nowadays most have) font support for Cyrillic characters (I assume that's one). UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 14:06, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Pikachu Cafe Tangrowth

It's been available in October of last year. It is now March. And nobody knows its attacks?! I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 21:24, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Korean attck names are hard to translate to the ones we know....--☆Coolピカチュウ! 21:26, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Good point. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 22:47, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Maddie Blaustein

  • During the distribution period of the Yukina Meowth in the Japanese Everyone's Pokémon Ranch, Maddie Blaustein, Meowth's original voice actress, passed away.

To avoid an edit war with Tc26, I'm deciding to bring this up on the talk page for discussion on the merit of whether this bit of trivia deserves to stay in the article.

Now it seems to me that not only is this not even a coincidence, but the mere fact that it deals with death should make it not trivial at all. Someone died and we're making that trivia? Does that not sound disrespectful to anyone? That alone should be basis enough to keep this off the page, but for those thinking that it has other reasons to stand: there are none.

The games and anime are rarely interconnected, so it's not like Maddie was on tour promoting this Meowth. Even if she was, how is that trivial? We might as well put on Mahatma Gandhi's wiki page "Gandhi was murdered by an Indian that believed he had betrayed the Indian people in favor of the Muslims. This is trivia because Gandhi is Indian. How ironic, huh?"

No. That's not how it works. And as long as we're adding trivia like this, let's add "Satoshi Tajiri was on a plane when the Saikyou Dragonite was offered up for trade. A coincidence, because Dragonite can fly!" Redstar 03:20, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree, that's not good trivia. If they came out with a variation of this Meowth in English afterward, though, then I could see it being trivia that it was brought to the US's Ranch to memorialize her. TTEchidna 03:31, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your thoughts. I'll be changing the page to reflect them, since you are an admim. Redstar 03:34, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
