:::I think she probably had at least some significance, given how [[Green (Adventures)|Green]] and [[Leaf (game)|Leaf]]'s (who did become a playable character) designs are based on her. The female character appears again in a [[:File:Capsule Monsters Hotel.jpg|sketch]] from a page from one of Game Freak's books called [http://web.me.com/celebi23/Capsule_Monsters/Books.html Satoshi Tajiri: A Man Who Created Pokémon]. Unfortunately, I don't own the book and don't know if it says anything significant about her. A similar character appears in a book on how to make Pokémon origami, but the manga sections are illustrated by Emiko Yoshino, not Ken Sugimori. (according to {{user|Bluesun}}). --[[User:Chickasaurus|Chickasaurus]] 20:48, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
 
==Beta names==
Does anyone know why the beta names on the poster are at most 7 characters long, while the ones on the list don't seem to have that limit? Where does the information on that list come from anyway... from the looks of things, one of three things happened.
 
- The names on the list came first... then a 7 character limit was decided on, and so the names were all shortened (as seen on the poster)
 
- The names on the poster came first (with an assumed 7 character limit) and then when the limit was raised to 10 the names were changed to the ones on the list
 
- That third poster isn't "official" and used some weird abbreviated form of their names for some reason
 
With the exception of that last possibility, it appears that there was once going to be a 7 character limit on Pokémon names, which I think is notable. I also find it interesting that the limit is 7... which is the exact same limit as the character limit on the player's name. Although this could just be coincedence... maybe the name is limited to 7 characters because the word "Pokédex" is 7 characters long and fits nicely in the Start menu.
