Is there a reason why we're using the names found on the signboards instead of on the town maps and menus for the islands? (Or does it differ by version?) - [[User:Zhen Lin|振霖]]<sub>[[User talk:Zhen Lin|T]]</sub> 09:43, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
:Y'mean Knot, Boon, Kin, etc.? Well, I can't speak for those who made the articles, but I would assume the signboard names are the proper names of the islands, and One, Two, Three, etc. are used on the map and menus for simplicity's sake. --[[User:Pie|Pie]] 02:11, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
By the way, I've been reading the pokemon special manga summaries on serebii.net (very '''detailed''' summaries I might add), and noticed that they refer to one island as simply one island, but is is known as the knot island (that means it's a nickname). Granted it was a summary (I already said it was detailed though) and the manga is not nessesaraly regaurded as canon, but it's the best we've got and almost certainly proves that one island and such are the real names.

:But then ''that'' is speculation. I say that, because the eighth and ninth islands are known as Navel Rock and Birth Island, the rest of the ''islands themselves'' are known as Knot, Boon, Kin, and so on. Maybe the "small island" Bill is talking about is the actual little island the town is on, but the overall mass made by [[Treasure Beach]], [[One Island (town)|One Island]], [[Kindle Road]], and [[Mt. Ember]] is Knot Island. After all, {{rt|28}} doesn't ''technically'' enter Johto; the western portion is known as "Silver Cave". They have the exact same wild Pokémon, though.
:And as for its status as a "settlement". What the hell is Pallet? Red's house, Blue's house, Oak's lab. Nothing else. At all. The Sevii towns are small on purpose, otherwise they might as well have included Johto in FRLG. Hell, [[Three Island (town)|Three Island]] is bigger than Azalea! If ''that's'' a settlement, then Azalea's just a drive-thru whale in the middle of a field.
:And the signposts are '''in the games''', therefore, the games do seem to imply that that's what the names of the islands are. That's the proof.
:Plus, um. Serebii. Yeah, the guy who uses the direct romanization and doesn't update the summaries when new information is added (of course, it's pretty much him alone behind the thing so yeah). Plus, the issue with those cross-canon things is that there's ''always'' '''always''' '''''always''''' more of a chance someone will screw up and name it wrong. After all, {{AP|Lapras}} used Freeze Beam once... '''[[User:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000">''TTE''</span>]][[User talk:TTEchidna|chidna]]''' 19:45, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
