    Why is Nintendo.com (and Pokemon.com) so moronic enough that they constantly put up new information early and then take it down and pretend it never happened?

    They did this with the original AG posters way back in 2002, they did it with the April 22nd date of D/P, and now the boxart.

    What kind of morons are they that they continue to make these embarrassing mistakes and think nobody caught them before they took it down? Its really embarrassing for a company like Nintendo.

    To happen that often you'd figure they're doing it intentionally. Maybe they are, to create a stir or something. It really seems too weird for them to make mistakes like that.

    According to Serebii, "Diaruga" is Dialga and "Parukia" is Palkia.

    Well it would certainly seem that way. I do not see "All Names are Tentative" at the bottom of the page, nor *'s next to either names, only (TM)'s.

    Those have always been the names since the official romanizations came out. Serebii does not use the correct names.

    Learn Japanese please. Thank you.

    I have provided many examples, here on BMG, and on SPPf, of why we shouldn't follow Official Romanizations as a bible...feel free to search and find them...but my names are NOT incorrect

    To be fair...the AG Stuff back in 2002 wasnt actually posted on the main page. We gained access to an unprotected folder which contained them.

    The names you use are how you PRONOUNCE the names. They are not how you SPELL them. That is an official truth that has been proven to you many times, sorry to say.

    No it isn't WPM...if it was how you pronounce them, it'ld be crazy. This is how they are SPELT in Japanese...and Many times Official Romanisations have lost the meaning behind the names. If you care to look as opposed to being all attempting "high and mighty" and dumb...then you'ld see
    It hasn't been proven to me many times because it hasn't been proven. Get your head out of your ass

    1. All the names which would stay the same in English stay the same.
    2. Your spellings have NEVER, EVER been found ANYWHERE official.
    3. http://www.filb.de/content/scans/corocoro/2007-01/Stickers.jpg

    *waits for an ignorant response*

    EDIT: 4. Oh, and your names don't make any sense. Buizeru? What the fudge is a Buizeru? Buoysel tells us that it is a combination of Buoy and weasel. Buizeru is how the Japanese pronounce it aloud.

    I have never said my spellings were official. I have never and would never make that assertion...your first point again...isn't true...Suicune much? And just throwing pictures of official merchandise at me? Wow score! Well done...you're just repeating the same thing over and over...wow you're so good at making a point

    So tell me...whats Plusle's Official Japanese Name?

    You know, you are quite stupid. You've been living in a world where everyone believes you so much for everything that you say that you have learned that you do not need to provide sufficient answers to shut someone up or to prove something. It may work on your members, but not me, or anyone else with a brain.

    Yes, it's official merchandise. When something is OFFICIAL like that, it's usually RIGHT - you know, official. Plusle's name was Prasle from long ago - they haven't corrected the name. That CoroCoro page is recent. The Japanese even called Dialga and Palkia those names on the Yahoo site several months ago (it was the names of their images). Dogasu has even told you that you are wrong. nYoo says you are wrong. Bangiras has said you are wrong. Even CORONIS, your own translator, and hot-headed Chris use the correct names that I and every other intelligent person use. These people know, study, and understand Japanese, and you are a British kid. Who's more reliable? Your answers and your names don't make sense. You feed these names to the community, get them wrong, and then they complain when the real names are exposed.

    You know, if this was real life and you were in a debate tournament, you would be entertaining the crowd.
