Talk:Serebii (person)


Should this be a disambiguation page? It's not common anymore, but I'm sure there are still those who use that spelling for the 251st pokemon.

That was the intention originally. LX jumped the gun a little in creating the page name.--Archaic 02:49, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)
If that's the intention, why does Serebii redirect to Joe Merrick? And why aren't Archaic or me or any other online people listed by their real names instead of their screen names? Ketsuban 02:55, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)
It doesn't anymore. It was only doing that after I'd moved the page to here, and before I'd fixed it up. As for the difference in naming conventions...point made. I'll turn Joe Merrick into a redirect to Serebii (person), to match the naming convention already established with you and Anenga.--Archaic 02:58, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)

This article......

Sounds like a Dating profile to me.Interests?Is that needed!?--DCM((TalkContributions))

Is this person even deserve to have an artical? I've never even heard of him! is a totally different thing to bulbapedia, anyway. - unsigned comment from kingbowser99 (talkcontribs)

Joe Merrick

I feel that this article should be moved to Joe Merrick.--RexRacer -talk 15:30, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

sounds good UltamateCharizard 17:35, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
I have too agree. ~~Takoto - サソデイ 13:15, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm reviving this old discussion. Anyone opposed to the move? —darklordtrom 02:11, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good to me, but should, say, Archaic be moved as well? 梅子 02:23, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
might want to check with Archaic on both fronts. -- MAGNEDETH 02:24, 19 July 2010 (UTC)


Is it really necessary to call me by the name Merrick? If you're uncomfortable using the name Joe, then use my pseudonym. However, calling me Merrick just makes me sound like a butler --Serebii 09:05, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

So, you'd rather us use Joe? たかはり 09:08, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. It is my name, and that is how I wrote it originally. It was just changed afterwards to Merrick --Serebii 10:30, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I fixed it for ya :3 You didn't catch a Tauros, eh? Interesting...
And what do you think of the article getting moved to Joe Merrick? That was suggested above. たかはり 10:37, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. As long as people can find it through Serebii then it's fine. --Serebii 10:42, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
I used the surname as I felt it would be more professional. —darklordtrom 12:00, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Once again

Is this page really necessary?! I like the Serebii website, but a bio of its webmaster has nothing to do on a Pokémon wiki. As do all other Pokémon fan bio. Also, there's no info relevant to the Pokémon franchise on this page. Jeangabin666 (talk) 21:24, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

According to Bulbapedia:Notability requirements, the rule of thumb for cases like this is: "is this subject notable enough to have an article created on it by someone besides the fan (or close friends of the fan) who is the subject or creator of the subject?"
I would say that Serebii absolutely is notable enough, as the owner of what is probably the single largest source of Pokémon information besides Bulbapedia and Smogon. --Felthry (F.K.A. Xolroc) (talk) 21:42, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
