:Uuh, you talk about it being speculation while using an anonymous, non confirmed by GF/Nintendo, leak. That's not much better... [[User:ExLight|ExLight]] ([[User talk:ExLight|talk]]) 23:54, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
::Ericss, please know that the information was most likely added back when Bulbapedia just started in 2005. Way before the leak surfaced. So obviously we couldn't fact check it since there was nothing to fact check it with.--[[User:Force Fire|<span style="color:#EBC600">'''F'''</span><span style="color:#EBC600">orce</span>]][[User talk:Force Fire|<span style="color:#D8B600">'''F'''</span><span style="color:#D8B600">ire</span>]] 03:43, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
:::ExLight: The point is that people were getting so anal and paranoid over the legitimacy of the leak, yet the clearly baseless speculation in the article got a free pass all these years.
:::But regarding your comparison. An "anonymous, non confirmed by GF/Nintendo, leak" of what is a clearly legitimate prototype ROM that anyone can verify with an emulator, versus baseless speculation that was never confirmed by GF/Nintendo yet was being passed off as fact by the article. Yes, I'll say the situations are rather different.
:::Force Fire: So? It was still unconfirmed speculation that the article treated as a fact. [[User:Ericss|Ericss]] ([[User talk:Ericss|talk]]) 10:10, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
