Spr RS Psychic F.png Look at this, this is so much like Anabel. We should include this on the page. --1-Up 20:47, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

...not really. Sure, there's a possibility her design came from the female Psychic... but eh, I dunno. TTEchidna 20:49, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Leader of the Frontier Brains

I don't recall the game ever pointing out a leader amongst the Frontier Brains. Where exactly does it say it? For all I know, Brandon could be the leader just like in the anime. Each facility in the game is a domain to its own; it doesn't require having beaten the others. So how exactly is she the leader? Satosuke 03:06, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

I honestly don't know. It might be due to the fact that the Battle Tower was there first, but I'm sure that there's an in-canon reference. We usually don't leave fanwank here unless we don't notice it, and given that several of the admins have edited this page, it'd be hard to miss. TTEchidna 04:23, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I'm pretty sure there must be an in-game reference too. I just wonder, since I don't recall ever reading that in the game, nor does the article mention where it got that reference. It makes me want to pull out my old Emerald and spend a couple hours searching for it, but not tonight. Satosuke 04:29, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
So where's the reference? Or we're supposed to just accept anything the admins say as official? - Spideym 14:58, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
She's their leader in the manga, but in-game I don't think it's been stated. And she definately isn't in the anime, that's Brandon. Reign 08:56, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


Her clothes look different every where she's portrayed, her artwork, sprites and anime clothes are all different. I'm putting that on the page.--DRAGONBEASTX 10:20, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


Can`t Espeon read the air currents? so why did the blackout disturbed him?- unsigned comment from Ferreronis (talkcontribs)

Espeon isn't stated to be male. The blackout was more of a distraction for Anabel so Ash could break their focus, per se. WATERWarrior67 23:11, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Anabel's sex in one of the manga

In the Battle Frontier manga there's a rumor that she was changed into a boy. Is that true? I've seen screenshots, and she still seems female. Dia Sprite 06:06, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Alakazam's VA

In her debut episode, Anabel is first seen with an Alakazam. However, I think that there is a mistake regarding Alakazam's voice actor. Maddie Blaustein's voice is last heard in the AG series episode Pasta La Vista!, twenty-four episodes earlier. Unless this was recorded while she was still alive, I think that Alakazam's English voice actor should be changed. WATERWarrior67 23:16, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Emerald Universe

As her SM battle theme (which uses the same GBA trumpets despite there already being a revamped version), as well as her passing through a UB wormhole, heavily implies that she is from the universe of the original games, should it that be stated in the Trivia section? --Geektreecko (talk) 04:02, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

That's currently just speculation at this point. It's not even certain that the original games were in a separate universe. TechSkylander1518 (talk) 04:05, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Page title

Since Anabel now appears in a context very much separate from the Battle Frontier, is it still appropriate to keep her Trainer class in the page title? (For that matter, is it appropriate to have the Trainer classes in any of the Frontier Brains' page titles? We don't use Trainer classes for virtually any other characters' page titles.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 05:43, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

I would personally say no, but who knows. The Great Butler (talk) 06:17, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
The overarching issue appears to be mentioned here. I agree that Anabel's page title (and by extension, any Frontier Brain's) should not unnecessarily include the Trainer class at all. Nescientist (talk) 11:38, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
