Falkner, G/S

His G/S Team chart seems off... either it is outdated and never updated, or there is a new standard I don't know about.... I don't know enough coding to fix it myself though.... Rawr I say! 00:44, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

No, its how they are doing it now for most of the gym leaders. Jasmine has one too. --PsychicRider 00:47, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay then, I didn't see it there... is it only Johto though, I don't see it for other regions gym leaders, or at least not Misty, Roxanne, and Roark. Rawr I say! 00:59, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
Lucian already has it. MoldyOrange 01:05, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Younger brother of Volkner?

I heard somewhere that Falkner is the younger brother of Volkner, or possibly the other way around. I know there is no way to verify this, but does anyone think that it could be proven/denied with HGSS? Thanks --Hey1031 00:21, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

That is ridiculous. Why, because their names end with "ner"? Yeah, it would be verified/destroyed in HGSS, but...God. Who came up with that?Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 02:56, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
lol yeah it does seem kinda out there... Someone on youtube said they read it somewhere, no idea where... lol I'm like laughing now at the fact that someone would think that they were related because of "ner". --Hey1031 19:42, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Odd trivia...

"Falkner's right eye is always covered up by his hair (but scenes from the anime prove he has two eyes in that canon)"

Is anyone else finding this statement a little... strange somehow? It made me chuckle at any rate, particularily that in brackets. --Raylax 19:25, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Um.... removing. o_O R.A. Hunter Blade 00:13, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Oh yeah, me and my friends are always on that. we think he doesn't have a right eye in everything but the anime. Cynthia seems to have the same 'issue', but with her left eye. I've made up yet another ridiculous ship out of that: OneEyeShiping. lol. --CrazedTreeko 323 δ 13:41 May 9th, 2010 (UTC)


I presume that HGSS's team will be added soon? --Ruixiang95 13:07, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

As far as I can tell (from the page history), the data is already there, but currently hidden until it can be 100% confirmed. --Raylax 14:58, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Oh, it's confirmed. I have the screenshots.--Ryuutakeshi 16:35, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Aye, I've seen the screenshots and news on 2ch and Serebii and etc, but there's still the (very, very, very small) chance that it's some weird and highly elaborate hoax. Practically 0% chance of that, but still. I figure the admins are gonna wait until the games are officially released and the information can be confirmed first-hand before un-hiding it. Only 19 and a half hours to wait now anyway. --Raylax 19:30, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
I know it's confirmed what his Pokémon are, but unless you have both the moves and the abilities, nothing is getting added. We don't even have the sprites yet, so it's definitely not going up, on top of the Johto gym leaders' pages being protected until, as Raylax said, we have all of the info. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:31, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Unprotect plz. Pidgey has at least Tackle and Sand-Attack, Pidgeotto at least Tackle, Gust and Roost. Also, the image has been moved. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 12:26, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Does Pidgey also have Roost? Most of the time all of a leader's Pokémon know the move that they give out for a TM. R.A. Hunter Blade 15:35, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
If it has, Falkner does not seem to want to use it. That Pidgey was on red health at least for three turns (I kept missing with Hoothoot's Peck due to Sand-Attacks) and it just Tackled and Sand-Attacked. And Falkner gives out PokémonDollar.png1560 in HGSS, not the 900 from GSC. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 11:40, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Go crazy, kids. Except not really. —darklordtrom 12:04, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
To top it off there is a new rematch team as well for this character I have more details at the HG and SS page, but in case anyone wants a quick preview here it is [1] the only difference from my earlier message is that it is now complete. But as I said on that page I can wait until an administrator decides the right time to post these details.-Tyler53841 16:47, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Sprite conflict

May I ask why won't you let us upload the animated sprite to his first HGSS team? It looks really out of place with the rematch template and the sprite box. The same thing happens with Bugsy and Whitney too. Why? --Bulbafan 23:50, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm guessing that the sprites aren't animated the first time you meet. R.A. Hunter Blade 22:27, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that's it's because we don't want to overload on the animated sprites being everywhere (I find it really annoying, seeing animated sprites everywhere where just a still one would do but..) and don't want to lag people's computers with 1228 animated trainers. They are animated the first time you meet em, though. →Tinā 22:33, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
We either need to change these three to animated, or make the other leaders' the unanimated ones for consistency. R.A. Hunter Blade 01:50, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
The former'll do I guess. I'll spice them up. --Bulbafan 01:44, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Pokéathlon team

He uses Swellow, Pidgeot, and Staraptor (in that order) in the Pokéathlon Jump Course. Should that be added? --ルレ 04:54, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Done,It has been added to the page.LucarioWolf 22:32, 27 May 2010 (UTC)


I was playing my SoulSilver the other day, and i saw Falkner and Janine fighting over who's dad was better. Falkner, at one point of the conversation said "Well my dad treats Poké... and was then cut off by Janine. I think he was about to say "Pokérus". Do any of you agree?--CrazedTreeko 323 δ 13:46 May 9th, 2010 (UTC)

She probably wanted to say "My dad treats Pokemon better" or something. I wouldn't jump to conclusions. --Maxim 13:54, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Falkner's Dad

Because of a cut off sentence in HGSS, I think Falkner's dad treats Pokérus. --CrazedTreeko 323 δ 13:41 May 9th, 2010 (UTC)

You just said that one section back. And, as someone else said there, we should not jump to conclusions. Flyingtypefan 21:49, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
I know. It was my first time doing discussion, so, long story short, this happened --CrazedTreeko 323 δ 18:37 5 June 2010

Falkner's father

Where is it said that Falkner's father was cooler and more handsome than Falkner? Littlmiget123 01:53, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Falkner probably thinks so, but it's not directly stated. He's just a daddy's boy, so I've reworded it. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 05:11, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Falkner HGSS Costume??

Has anyone else noticed that Falkner's outfit, or more like his shirt bears close resemblance to the colours and design of Prinplup. This could be possible, seeing as though HGSS was created after DPP though it doesn't make sense; seeing as though yes Prinplup is a bird but not of a flying-type bird, so why would Falkner dress like a flightless bird? ConnorGotchi 21/05/2012


Can i create a page for his Pidgeot? - - unsigned comment from Ishlishl (talkcontribs)

Nope, it was already created in the past but was deemed unnotable. PattyMan 23:36, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Pocket Monsters issue

It says he owns a Pidgeot under the header, but the images flat-out depict a Pidgeotto. Anyone know where the mistake lies? Because if it's legit called a Pidgeot in the raw, that's one thing (and should be noted), but if it's a human error here, then it needs fixing. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 18:27, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

The raw says Pidgeotto so you are right. I don't know how that mistake occurred. PattyMan 18:35, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

only male flying-type gym leader

just like Tate is the only male psychic-type gym leader, Falkner is the only male flying-type gym leader. Pikachu210 (talk) 14:51, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Not notable at all. So what if he's the only male Flying type gym leader? Means absolutely nothing.--ForceFire 06:21, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
Same could be said for Tate being the only male psychic-type gym leader, yet that's listed on that page. Pikachu210 (talk) 00:22, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
That'll be removed, then. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:26, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
