(A work in progress. Uses wiki formatting because it's eventually going to go [url=http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:Transfinite/Bulbapedia_Drinking_Game]here[/url].)

==In general==
* Take one drink every time the word "strangely", "coincidentally", "interestingly", "oddly", "ironically", or something similar appears. Take another drink if the item in question isn't actually strange, coincidental, interesting, odd, or ironic.
** e.g., ''"Character X has an Electric Pokemon and appears in Generation III. Interestingly, Character Y also has an Electric Pokemon, and also appears in Generation III."
* Take one drink every time the word "Apparently" is used to modify a statement that is a confirmed fact.
* Take one drink every time the phrase "It is interesting to note", "It may be interesting to note", "It should be noted", "It may be noted", "It is important to note", or some variant thereof, appears.
==Trivia sections==
* Take one drink whenever an article's trivia section mentions something banal, idiotic, or utterly useless.
* Take two drinks whenever an article's trivia section mentions something plainly visible in the official art or sprites, or something that can be learned by reading the rest of the article.
* Take a drink every time a trivia section makes a pointless comparison to another character or Pokémon. Take another drink if this comparison is marked as "coincidental" or "ironic".
** You still have to take the drink for the first bullet point under "In general", too.
* Take two drinks every time something inaccurate, only partly accurate, or misleading appears...
** ...only to be "corrected" in a second-level bullet point, rather than actually being edited to be correct.
*** Finish your glass if this devolves into TVTropes-style arguing three or more bullet points deep.
==New games==
* Take a drink every time someone tries to cite Serebii, PokeBeach, or some other non-official source for new information.
* Take a drink every time there's an argument about what the new game's pages should be called. Take two drinks if the answer is blindingly obvious and it's just one person whining against the majority.
==Mainspace==
* Take a drink every time someone tries to add "Habitat" or "Diet" information to glitch Pokémon.
* Take a drink every time someone insists that the G in "glitch Pokémon" should be capitalized.

    This should be in Wingull's trivia section, y/y?:
    [quote]Wingull shares its catch rate of 190 with Chinchou, another dual-typed Water Pokémon (although it is part Electric, not Flying). Chinchou and Wingull are also similar in that they evolve two levels apart, Chinchou evolving at level 27 and Wingull at level 25. Further, they both have 50/50 gender ratios, and their Almia Browser numbers are 10 apart (Wingull's is 78 and Chinchou's is 88). It should also be noted that their Dream World abilities, Rain Dish and Water Absorb, both recover HP when in the presence of water, though the exact mechanisms are different.[/quote]
    oh oh no it should say that [i]ironically[/i] Chinchou is part electric. It's ironic because electric is strong to flying!

    Hey, I like the trivia sections. What may be useless to you isn't to me.

    The trivia sections are fine, but we don't need shit like "Kris's name is a reference to Crystal" or "Dawn is holding a Repeat Ball in Sugimori's art." It's obvious if you actually [i]read the article[/i].

    Wait, Dawn's holding the Repeat Ball?

    (I admit, I just skip the articles and focus on the trivia. :P)

    There was some idiotic trivia on Dawn and Lucas's articles about what kind of Poke Balls they were holding in the art. Keyword: Was.

    I read that on Tv Tropes. It's their Platinum artwork.

    I'm not saying it wasn't there, just that I heard about it elsewhere.

    I'd like to add taking a drink when the word "Apparently" pops up in front of a sentence that is confirmed fact.

    Oops, I typoed, I didn't mean Emerald, though, that applied too.
