Entei's moveset needs to be posted.- unsigned comment from Tempest115 (talkcontribs)

It will be. User142 is going through all the Pokémon in order and adding their moves. It might take a few more weeks before he gets here. Zurqoxn 01:14, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Trivia: Pokémon Ranger

Should I give some kind of source for that fact? I found it myself while playing the game, though.--Heracross42 04:16, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Yea, proof would be nice. --Theryguy512 11:06, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I have a bad quality camera, and I'm no great shakes at photo editing. The best I can do is give the location: go to North Sekra Range, and before the straight path that leads to the mountain turn S/Easterly. Go east, and then go north up to an entrance that leads to the Shiftry tree (Shiftree). Try not to approach the tree. Past the Shiftree is a lodge that has a sign that identifies it as the Misthouse Lodge. Enter the lodge. In the upper right hand corner of the lodge is a green table/dresser thing. Above that on the wall is a picture featuring a Pokémon easily identifiable as Entei. Ok, that's it. Sorry again. --Heracross 42

Trivia: Reproduction

I added the bit about Entei's reproduction on the main article. If that's unnecessary, just revert it and say so here. SixthFlyingMan 09:54, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

HG/SS Sprite

Where did Entei's come from, and why don't Suicune and Raikou have one?--Chaos Theory 00:24, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Someone hasn't been paying attention to the website. They have Entei's battle up already, but neither of the other two. Also USE LINK TEMPLATES NEXT TIME OR I KEEL YUO. TTEchidna 00:40, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Whose idea was it to make Entei's picture enormous? A lot of the information is being covered by the sprite. Eddie Blake 16:12, 18 April 2010 (AEST)


Entei is Japanese for fire emperor. - unsigned comment from PokeExtreme (talkcontribs)

Name etymology

I don't know if this is worth mentioning in the article, but could Entei's name also have been derived from Inti, the Incan sun god? It's really just speculation on my part, but I wanted to know if that was enough to warrant adding a little blurb about it to the article under Name Origin. Crazedgiggles 14:01, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Origin Section is too long

The origin section of this article is pretty long. It goes into extensive physical descriptions of the Pokémon, and seems to be trying to heap praise on it. I fixed some spelling mistakes, but I'm not sure how else to condense it.--Trebligoniqua 01:23, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Physiology error

In the article, in the Physiology text, it says this: "It is said that an Entei is born whenever a volcano erupts. It is also said that whenever Entei roars, a volcano erupts somewhere in the world." Though in the pokédex entry's, it clearly states: " It is said that one is born every time a new volcano appears." Which means the first sentence of the Physiology quote is wrong saying that Entei is born when a volcano erupts, it should be when a new volcano is made, isn't it? --Wbvtje 16:34, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Fixed. --Spriteit 22:54, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Game locations template

This edit makes the FR/LG and HG/SS text overlap their bubbles. --TheVeryBest 18:28, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

What browser are you using? I'm not seeing a problem in Chrome. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:33, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Nor me in Opera. glikglak 19:48, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I use Comodo Dragon, which is based on Chrome. Chrome itself, however, doesn't show the overlap I see in Dragon, even though both were at 100% zoom. Problem must be on my end, then. Carry on. --TheVeryBest 19:49, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I see the same overlap/overextension problem in Firefox (20.0). It fits fine in Chromium, though. They appear to render the fonts a bit differently (so that the text is wider in Firefox). Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:59, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Long kana E + I

This page contains information about Hepburn Romanization. Examples of usage (A — two adjacent vowels, M — macron):

Transcription\Kana A + A I + I U + U E + E
Traditional A A AM A
Modified AM A AM AM
Transcription\Kana E + I O + O O + U Chōonpu
Traditional A AM AM M
Modified A AM AM M

I think I will understand this table, as Force Fire reverted me for adding ē instead of ei as the transliteration of エイ. I know, the combination E + I makes a long E. --TheICTLiker4 11:08, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Entē would be エンテー, not エンテイ. The "Te" is not elongated.--ForceFire 11:51, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Also, we have our own Romanization policy.--ForceFire 11:52, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
In addition to what Force Fire said, your claim that "the combination E + I makes a long E" is false, and contradicted by the Wikipedia page you cited and the table you created here. --SnorlaxMonster 11:58, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Origin: Entei inspired by lions

Ken Sugimori asked Muneo Saitō what the design process was like for the Legendary Beast trio. Her response for Entei was:

"So, a hairy, rock-like body, volcanic smoke rising from behind its head, a king with a dignified beard... Entei's design was coming together... You could say it was basically like a lion...But I didn't want it to be simply an animal. So I settled on a silhouette that could look like a dog or a cat."

Overall, Entei is not meant to represent a specific animal, but she did note the resemblance to the large cat.


These are the tweets I could find archived in regards to Entei, but there is a full image cobbled together that discusses the design process from the creator herself: --Pika Pika Pi~!! (talk) 14:51, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
