TopHat - Regarding the "illegal streaming site"
 
I've noticed you say that no copyright material should be included in origin sections even when qualified with "may be based off" etc., such as [[Special:Diff/3216286|here]] or [[Special:Diff/3219582|here]], unless there's a source. Could you clarify what exactly that rule is, and why it exists? (And if it's an official rule, could staff actually write it down somewhere?) I believe for some origins, they're likely based off Ultraman characters etc., so I'm wondering if there's a legal reason or something for Bulbapedia not to say that (and basically resort to what may be the second-best explanation).

== TopHat - Regarding the "illegal streaming site" ==
 
Hey, TopHat here. Just a quick heads up considering you thought the link I put up was of an illegal streaming site: It is from Pokémon TV themselves, a fully legal by TPC-run streaming site for children to watch Pokémon episodes.
 
I understand you might've mistaken it for an illegal streaming website, however I can assure you that was not the case. Here are some arguments to showcase that it is from a legal source:
 
https://watch.pokemon.com/en-gb/
 
This website is run by The Pokémon Company International, providing official URLs even to their social media pages (including the official, verified, Pokémon YouTube channel.
Not to mention that the episode I referred to, is legally available on the Dutch version of the site, but also on the English version meant for the UK: https://watch.pokemon.com/en-gb/season.html?id=pokemon-adventures-in-the-orange-islands As you can see, episode 41 Meowth Rules is available to watch legally and for free. Once clicked on it, you would see the player page has a similar URL to the one I linked to, except for it having the British locale instead of the Dutch one.

:Apologies, the "watch" at the beginning of the URL link threw me off, as most illegal stream sites tend to start with "watch". As for the trivia itself, while I still don't think it's notable for an English wiki (a Dutch wiki, sure), but I'll leave it.--[[User:Force Fire|<span style="color:#00A1E9">'''F'''</span><span style="color:#59C2F1">orce</span>]][[User talk:Force Fire|<span style="color:#BF004F">'''F'''</span><span style="color:#D5598C">ire</span>]] 12:11, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
 
::Understandable about the URL part. Though, I argue the trivia itself is very notable for including the word 'shit' on children television and it being a fact for the Pokémon anime history. Personally I would argue that even dub-related trivia (outside of English dubs as well) are noteworthy as long as they provide something that is not commonplace, such as using a vulgar word and rerun that episode uncensored for 20 years. That is quite remarkable. Anyhow, thank you for leaving it up. Much appreciated. [[User:TopHat|TopHat]] ([[User talk:TopHat|talk]]) 12:35, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
