:Dude, that is not needed. Nobody is gonna move Missigno. to ''Missigno. (Pokémon)''. Why? Because it's not a Pokémon! {{:User:Theryguy512/Sig}} 00:49, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
::But you never know when you get the extreme Glitch Pokémon extremist who tries to do something like moving [[MissingNo.]] to [[MissingNo. (Pokémon)]]. True, I did at one point seriously consider doing so, but somehow forgot.
:::IMHO this is unnecessary. What would this suffix accomplish, in terms of disambiguation? The Pokémon articles are titled like that to disambiguate them versus articles on significant members of that species ([[Pikachu]] disambiguates to [[Pikachu (Pokémon)]] and [[Ash's Pikachu]]) since individual Pokémon usually don't have their own names (Ash's Pikachu is just called Pikachu, as are most of the Pikachu in the world). AFAIK "MissingNo." or ".4" wouldn't refer to anything else, and even if we did decide otherwise, making a template to link to them would be a bit excessive - ''how'' many times would we link to one of these articles in article space?
