  • 13:3113:31, 4 May 2024 diff hist −31 Vincent준이치 was never his Korean name. It's just a transliteration that was used because he lacked a Korean name (the last Johto episodes never aired in South Korea). Now he has one due to that Korean-only Johto League special (a "movie" made by combined and heavily truncated season finale episodes). Information via Korean Pokemon Wiki.

  • 07:3007:30, 27 January 2024 diff hist +11 Silph Co.→‎Terminology: It's an artwork straight from GF (by Ken Sugimori) and has nothing to do with localization. These artworks use Japanese terminology in Romaji (like S.S. ANNU on the Ticket), so this counts as Japanese name. I don't think that this artwork has been ever used in any English-language publication, anyway.

  • 12:2312:23, 5 November 2023 diff hist +702 Erik and Sara→‎Names: Added Chinese and Korean names. Wonder why they weren't added in the first place. Also, I wonder if their English names are some staff inside jokes, like their Japanese names. They got suddenly renamed during the localization process (leaked translation files reveal that they were once named Stan and Fiona in the beta stage), so maybe they had something in mind.

  • 10:0510:05, 3 September 2023 diff hist +3 Pokémon in Poland→‎Pokémon manga: The series wasn't "unpopular". Most Polish Pokemon fans of the time didn't have the chance to know it existed because of poor distribution. The publisher did zero effort to advertise it, they didn't respect the source material, they just thought that everything with Pokemon logo on it would stonks (that's the only reason they bought ithe rights). So, "low sales" is a better explanation. But the true reason for it is JPF's incompetence.

  • 16:2116:21, 25 August 2023 diff hist +124 List of characters in other languagesAdded some Chinese names from Masters and the TCG. Since SM was released in Chinese and the naming was reformed, things are consistent now. I wouldn't put my money on anime and (especially) manga but post-SM names from the TCG should be valid because it's Nintendo-supervised.

They're consistently used on all official screenshots, so they're just like Florian/Juliana, Victor/Gloria etc. They're perfectly valid character names.

  • 14:5214:52, 19 July 2023 diff hist +30 Puzzle Continent"Puzzle" used as an adjective doesn't sound right and 謎の is normally translated as "mysterious". So, unless the name appears in some official English-language media, I'd say move.

  • 15:4915:49, 3 February 2023 diff hist +101 DannyI think there should be a disambig here. The Jubilife TV Danny is a game character. Obscure one, but still. But I'm leaving this for higher-ups to decide. However, a headnote is the necessary minimum.
