    Don't know why, but I think we should just leave it. At least it is a Pokémon that can learn Fly.

    that would be a switch statemtn which we are trying to use less of, due to their mild use of server load.

    I think we should add pronunceation keys to each of the pokemon's respective pages.

    The problem is that there are many different Prounceations than there are Pokemon. Take Arceus for example, there are two I can think of off the top of my head: Ark-ee-us and Arc-see-us.

    And ignore the other things that released pronunciations, like Battle Revolution? They aren't all the same.

    There have been talks like this before, and everytime the idea has been shot down. I doubt this time will be any different...

    That's definitely a no. Too many different options and no single official pronunciation.

    even the "Official Pokemon Handbook" has incorrect pronunciations in it, so not even Nintendo knows.

    The one in the three wise monkeys motif have the hand covering the mouth.
    How an open mouth means "speak no evil"? An open mouth.
    It's just a pic of it on this position!

    Oh, and there's more from where it came from!
    "It, along with its two contemporaries, seem to inspired by the three wise monkeys motif; with its large ears, Simisear represents "hear no evil"."
    A LARGE EAR MEANS "HEAR NO EVIL", I feel so stupid how couldn't I know of this before?

    Each of them accentuate the body part of the wise monkeys; only one has an open mouth, only one has closed eyes and only one is poiting at its ear.

    Let me give you a cloudy example. Pikachu is the one with red cheeks...: oh it's based on "make-up accident in a mouse" don't you see?

    I don't see where Pansage's mouth is focused. Even if it's focused... Common... It isn't shut...
    Simisear isn't touching its ear, as the others aren't doing something remarkable in every artwork / sprite of them.
