: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 Cold Beam once... '''[[User:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000">''TTE''</span>]][[User talk:TTEchidna|chidna]]''' 19:45, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Look, I may be doing some speculation of my own here, but the it sure is more proof then you've brought here. All you have is "maybe's", and that just isn't going to cut it. So why don't you figure out when you've been beaten and change the names to the ones widly accepted by most people? Now I don't really care about the "town/settlement" problem, do what you want with that, but the special manga has the best portrayal of the games of them all, and we don't really have any other sources for the debate. The numbered names are in the games too, and much more prominently I might add. [[User:Noname|Noname]] Also, please don't bash serebii. I don't see you updating those Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 pages, and all the (manga's) info checks out with what we have here. (He didn't even write those summaries, some guy named "Coronis" did)
:Who says they're widely accepted? You are not everyone. I accept their names as Knot, Boon, Kin, Floe, Chrono, Fortune, Quest. Tina does. Pie does. The only reason that people don't know their names is because no one freaking reads the signboards anymore anyway! They walk into town and it says ONE ISLAND in the top left corner. They assume (incorrectly!) that One Island is the entire thing, not just the stupid little town. They've been at these names for a while now and really, it doesn't matter. Essentially, "Knot Island" itself matters very little, since it's really just a sub-region of the Sevii Islands. Let's just hop on a boat to [[Shinou]], though. Might wanna take it up with {{an|Hikari}} and {{an|Satoshi}}, too. We tried the "most accepted name" thing in the past, really, it never works out because someone comes along and says "WHY USE ENGLISH DUB NAMES 4KIDS/PUSA SUX" and decides to move them.
:And the numbered names in the games, again, pretty much refer to the towns.
:I don't update the MD2 page because I don't ''have'' MD2. If I did, I would. I updated the DP pages like no tomorrow after I got my hands on it, though. '''[[User:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000">''TTE''</span>]][[User talk:TTEchidna|chidna]]''' 20:16, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Lot's of people read the signposts, they just beleive (correctly) that it's just a nickname. People also think it's called one island not just because of the name in the upper-left corner, but because the sea-gallop says it is taking you to "one island" and because they don't see why they would name a town one island. Why '''would''' they name a "stupid little town" one island when it is so obviously not a island? Also two people are not the entirity of the comunity, nor do they speak for nintendo who happened to make the game and desided to number the sevii islands. Also, will you quit comparing this to the japanese names problem? As far as I know, they do not call them Knot island and so on in japan, they call them the same names (in japanese of course) and until you give me an example of a contry where they do call them that, shut up! [[User:Noname|Noname]] I just brought up the PMD thing because nobody seems to have worked on it much dispite it coming out almost a week ago.
