Talk:Count Pumpka

Count's Name

Shouldn't his name change to Count Pumpka? I saw it in the closed captioning.- unsigned comment from JasonL (talkcontribs)

Are you absolutely sure that his name is Pumpka? Playerking95 (talk) 14:20, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
Closed captioning isn't always reliable. - PokémonGamer (talk) 16:07, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
It is more reliable than playing by ear, though. I don't know a single word in English that would have "k" as its own syllable like that. --Abcboy (talk) 16:17, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
Good point. We should probably use Pumpka as seen in the closed captioning unless a more reliable source says contrary afterward. - PokémonGamer 16:27, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
I found the closed captioning of the episode online. I'll try to find where it says Pumpka in the captioning. - PokémonGamer 17:00, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
Okay, here it is for proof: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2oacdIpXYKsZHdnQWNzS0dpcDg/view. And when I listen closely to the episode, it sounds like "Count Pumpka's" rather than "Count Pumpk is," so I agree with the rename. - PokémonGamer 17:40, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
For future reference, closed captioning is generally viewed as an acceptable way to confirm spellings/names of characters if there is no other official source stating otherwise. --Pokemaster97 03:52, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
That's what I was saying. If no official source becomes available or an official source becomes available but says the same as the closed captioning, we should use "Count Pumpka" rather than going by a fanmade by-ear name, but if a more official source says something else, we should probably change it to that (but I doubt a more official source will become available confirming differently), so I agree with "Count Pumpka" as there's no better source other than closed captioning available, and at least it's not a fanmade name spelling done by ear like Count Pumpk is (without the a). - PokémonGamer 04:03, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
I was just confused at where the hold up was coming from. If that's what the closed captioning states, please feel free to move it to that name. --Pokemaster97 04:20, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Pokémon Image

The image for Prince Pumpkaboo needs replacing. The current image is of Jessie's Pumpkaboo being spotted through the binoculars. Hyper Turtwig (talk) 02:52, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
