Talk:Drew's Flygon


I noticed in one episode, Drew told Brianna that it takes a lot of work to get Vibrava to evolve into Flygon. Can that possibly mean that his Flygon was Vibrava once under his ownership? Or was this just something the dub added in. --ケンジガール 21:40, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Or it could be just something Drew knows as a fact.--Tavisource 21:41, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
That's still not confirmation that the Flygon was a Vibrava under Drew's care. There was never an explicit mention of such an event, unlike Gary's Blastoise or the Legend of Thunder characters' starters. While likely, it's still possible that he caught it directly as a Flygon. Of course, he'd know what advice to give knowing Flygon's evolution paths...--Shiningpikablu252 21:43, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
But even IF this gives proof that he did own a Vibrava, we shouldn't put it on the page when it's not confirmd in the anime.--Tavisource 21:45, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Can we at least mention it in trivia? --ケンジガール 21:52, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Don't see why not. That's what trivia is for. --electAbuzzzz (TALK) 21:56, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, I think we shouldn't because what he said doesn't proove anything at this moment. What he said could give hint to other things anyways. For example, what he said could hint that he had trained someone ELSE's Vibrava.--Tavisource 21:57, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Well we list in Ash's Gliscor trivia the evidence that it might be female, yet that's not confirmed. --ケンジガール 22:02, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
But for Gliscor, there aren't as much possibilities of the truth. The only choices are Male or Female. But for Vibrava, it could mean many things. But you do have a point if they made Gliscor 22:07, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Userspace article

I think this article should be moved to the userspace and then back to the mainspace once an admin approves of the move. That's how articles are created here, after all. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:49, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

This article doesn't need to be moved to the userspace for its notability to be appreciated. One can very well do that with it still being in the mainspace, preferably using this talk page to make their voices heard. I think this article is perfectly valid. Drew's Flygon has appeared regularly since its debut, being one of the Pokémon that Drew has used the most. A quick comparison with Horacio's Vikavolt will reveal that:
  • Flygon has appeared in five episodes while Vikavolt has appeared in only three.
  • Vikavolt's personality section consists of information that is already noted in the infobox.
  • Aside from the not up to standard personality section, the page lacks information on the character's voice actor.
    • While I think information we lack shouldn't prevent us from starting a page with info that we do have, this does put the page in the pile of incomplete articles (3,867 pages are currently in that category), now add that to all that is said here and we we get a page that isn't particularly good.
  • Drew is a much more important character than Horacio will ever be.
Other factors that should be taken into consideration include:
  • There wasn't a proper discussion before the page on Horacio's Vikavolt was mainspaced, Force Fire said here that he got no response from his fellow staff members but decided the page should be mainspaced anyway because he "think[s] the page looks alright".
  • If we take a look at other rivals' Pokémon, such as the ones belonging to Harrison, we will all agree that Drew's Flygon surely deserves its own article.
    • Aside from Sneasel, which was in an incident involving the League torch, none of Harrison's Pokémon have done anything other than battle, and they have had less appearances in the anime than Drew's Flygon.
  • Again, Drew being a recurring rival throughout the Advanced Generation series is more important than Harrison, who was merely a rival during the Silver Conference arc.
    • Side note: it amazes me how three of Harrison's Pokémon have articles but characters such as Drew and Harley only have articles for their signature Pokémon, while other characters such as Miette don't even have that luxury despite the fact that there's a draft for it sitting in the userspace for over two years. Why are regular characters left without articles for their Pokémon? Why do we favor a character who only appeared for the duration of one competition?
With all of that said, I think this page should not be deleted/moved into my userspace. This page is good enough on its own, and it becomes great when compared to other rivals' Pokémon. --Mikuri 02:05, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
That should've been consulted with an admin first. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:40, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
From the notability requirements: "3. For rival characters and other recurring characters, only their signature Pokémon may have an article created about them'. An exception may be made if another Pokémon that is not the signature has had an impact on the series. One example of this would possibly be Gary's Arcanine. Jimmy and Marina also fall into this category. If a rival's signature Pokémon does nothing more than battle or has no major impact on the plot, then it is not notable for an article and instead should have a section on its Trainer's page.".
Flygon is not Drew's signature Pokémon and has not had an impact on the plot. Horacio's Vikavolt is Horacio's signature Pokémon, hence why I approved the article. Since the requirement only calls for it to be a signature Pokémon. Flygon is not notable for its own article, because all it has done is battle, nothing else. Being a long time user here, Mikuri, I would've expected you to know this.--ForceFire 05:47, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Vikavolt also played an important part in SM119 and it didn't just battle in all of its episode appearances.--ForceFire 06:13, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
