    That's a yes on the infobox. That's all I have an opinion on at the moment.

    DJ Snap (and all other DJs) could probably be put into their own section on the Goldenrod Radio Tower page.
    I am a little split on the moves page (which isnt in the category for merge/move etc btw) because moving the TCG elsewhere would leave that page pretty empty. I'm leaning towards no change.
    Infobox looks fine.

    Not all DJ's work at Goldenrod

    And as for the moves: It was when I posted it in the thread. guess someone else removed it. *shakes fist*. These should really only be removed by admins when discussion is finished

    1. figuratively speaking of course. DJ Snap would go to Goldenrod. other DJs would go to their respective towers. though, if theres enough info on DJs to support it, i guess its possible they could simply get their own article, but im not sure theres many notable DJs (prob just Mary, in which we get "Main article: DJ Mary").
    2. i agree

    Good question. The template is set up to allow that, so I'd say most recent sprite would probably be best. Although it could prove annoying for Ace Trainer, etc. where there are two genders if we don't have artwork for them. (The template isn't set up to allow two images there.)

    We can make it allow two images.

    Personally, I would much prefer sprite(s) in the infobox to fanart.

    Who suggested fanart? We could use TCG art...I know at least Copycat, Collector, Black Belt, Twins, etc have artwork from there.

    And some of them have anime and manga depictions, too, so there are those, if you feel a sprite won't do it.

    But then the trainer boxes will look strange if one has sprites, others have Sugi-art, others have something else. Maybe the standard should be sprites, and whatever other mediums they come from can be in the depiction sections the TCs already have.

    On the topic of the TC infobox - I did a test run of the template (without saving it). A few isssues I found:

    1. The counterpart parameter should be optional; Some classes, such as the Fisherman, do not have an opposite-gender counterpart.
    2. The color parameters should be the same as the Character infoboxes (color, bordercolor, corecolor). This accommodates mixed-type trainers (i.e. Sages), trainers with no specialty (i.e. a majority of Orre trainer classes), and trainers with non-templated colors (i.e. Team Rocket trainers)
    3. The anime and manga parameters should be split, one for the episode/chapter debuted, and an optional one for characters with articles that identify by or are based on that class (i.e. Nicholai the Youngster of the Anime, Fisherman Wilton of Pokémon Adventures). While we're at it, how about a "Notable Members" parameter for game characters such as Joey and Selphy?

    Would someone be able to fix these? @Werdnae? @trom? @Snorlax Monster? I'd really like to see this infobox in the mainspace within the next few days. If anyone else has any problems with it, speak up now.

    I'd also like to see a link to the TCG article in the infobox if the card exists.

    Between MisterE13, Nate and I, 1, 2 and the card link are done. 3 I just added a "Notable Members" part for all media, I figure given there's often significant overlap or few enough that we can just put them all in the same box.

    I've also added a few tests on the talk page so we can see it in action. Feel free to add more/fix stuff.

    Shouldn't the three debuts link to the actual pages?
