pokemon shock[edit]

I think the "pokemon shock" section may be overstated.

Snopes states that most of those affected were more likely the result of mass hysteria.Hubert (talk) 17:49, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Made the edits to address this. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:25, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Error[edit]

I added a note to the PeTA section but it won't show up. Why?!--Delibirda (talk) 09:00, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

You need to add a "notes" section at the end, similar to the "references" section. I can't remember exactly how to do it, but if you find another page with notes you can copy it from there. --Annanoon (talk) 10:07, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
There's a template at the bottom of the editing window, ==Notes== {{reflist|group=note}}, which automatically adds the section. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:17, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
I've also added the template. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:18, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you.--Delibirda (talk) 08:26, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Add source[edit]

I added a new claim in the PETA section. Can someone add a source?--Delibirda (talk) 08:57, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Dexit[edit]

This seems off-mission? While a big deal within the fandom, it has nothing to do with the science/politics focus of this wiki. And it's an overlong rant--72.35.97.151 (talk) 02:45, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Agreed. I have removed it, thanks.—€h33s3βurg3rF@€3 Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 03:13, 23 December 2019 (UTC)
While you're right about it being off-mission, I did put hours of my time and soul into that bit. Maybe we could just have the first paragraph I wrote included as a brief mention? I mean, it's kind of hard not to mention when we have a section titled 'Controversies' for Pokemon. Any reader who comes upon this page is going to be like, "Where's the Dexit section?". Additionally, we could move the rest of the article that I worked on to a Fun article and link it in there somehow. Would that be okay? Cumulus Discuss 04:53, 23 December 2019 (UTC)
I think personal opinion on those kinds of gamig-related controversies that are nonmissional can be kept to funspace or your own userpage. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 03:47, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
Sooo... perhaps we could put what I wrote in funspace, and then put a link to that article under 'See Also' on the Pokemon page? And like in one sentence under 'Miscellaneous' briefly mention Dexit, with Dexit linking to my article or in parentheses including a link i.e. (for more about that see our Fun article on it)? Cumulus Discuss 04:53, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
bump. Cumulus Precipitation 05:53, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Good that it is removed. Too many problems.--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 15:08, 25 December 2019 (UTC)

How could it be improved? Cumulus Precipitation 05:45, 1 January 2020 (UTC)
Removal of baseless accusations(Greed n' stuff), subjective stuff presented as objective(whether or not the previous graphics were horrible, whether or not the gimmicky features were good or not, etc.), and I can't think of more, now.--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 09:03, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Citation for the Black & White(Washing) Section[edit]

Does anybody have a citation? I know it happened, but I want to see it cited... because it sounds funny for the truth of the article. It's Farmhand, BTW! (talk) 20:48, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
