    Default Pokemon representations in Bulbanews and Bulbawiki

    In Bulbanews and Bulbawiki, there are Pokemon beside some of the disclaimers above/below the page, but what are all the possible Pokemon to see there, and what are their representations? I know that Regigigas is late news, which relates to its slowness thanks to the ability Slow Start and Blue Pikachu representing fandom stuff, relating on how the Pikachu is a Pokemon, but the colouration of it is not real, but what about all of the possible ones, like Gallade and Chikorita?

    It's done on a per-project basis, not a per-Pokemon basis. So we wouldn't be able to list 'em all out for you unless we were to scour every project and conjure up a list. Some of the mascots aren't even Pokemon.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Usually it's just a picture picked out because of some relation. Celebi's for current events because of time travel, for example. A shadowed-out Bulbasaur is for the new Pokémon template because Pokémon are first revealed as shadows, most often.

    I picked most of the ones on BP which is where those colored, roundy noticebars first popped up. Some examples include:

    * Diglett is "incomplete article" because the articles have holes in them and Diglett is technically incomplete.
    * Magikarp is "needs cleanup" because Magikarp is a weak fish. Likewise with Paras and "incomplete synopsis".
    * Ludicolo is "needs party template" because it's wearing a sombrero.

    I picked Oddish for the unused image template because I like it and thought people typically forget about the little unused 'Oddish Odd'

    Although, the Blue Pikachu's days are numbered.

    Does that mean you are going to replace that blue Pikachu with another Pokemon?
