Since one of the games has the 'Ninten' and 'Sony' default names should i attempt to do this with the other games. Also feel free to tell me anything else you want me to find in one of the pokemon games. From: SamuelEarl666

Versions

Technically, "Version" is part of the title for all of the main Pokémon games, yet all of the articles follow the common trend of leaving that out. And, if so, how should we write the titles? "Pokémon Red and Blue Versions" or "Pokémon Red Version and Blue Version"? Or even "Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version", the way Nintendo refers to them? --Peardian 12:18, 4 October 2012 (EDT)

Glitch Pokémon (and other assorted things)

The way we cover MissingNO./'M isn't exactly fair, per se. If we have that in the Red/Blue article, shouldn't we cover ALL the Glitch Pokémon, as well as glitch moves, glitch types, and ALL glitch items? BUT, then there'd be way too much to cover. So, we've got a dilemma. --AquaBat 11:01, 3 July 2013 (EDT)

Missingno. was deliberately programmed in the game, while the others are just glitch data due to the game interpreting random bytes from the ROM as Pokemon/move/type/whatever data. -- Sheeza 11:13, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
I suppose you're right, they really are simple garbage data. --AquaBat 12:07, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
I think missingno is famous enough to be worth covering to some extent. The name itself is obviously unused content. That said, the article right now is far too extensive. 7 OGGs of garbage data rendered as audio? Meaningless height & weight statistics? That stuff shouldn't be covered. 'M is probably not worth covering at all. ColdPie 11:16, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
Uh, I don't think so. --AquaBat 12:07, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
What don't you think? ColdPie 13:09, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
Sorry to butt in, but I figure 'M is sort of worth covering only to note that and specify why it is in fact not worth covering. Otherwise you get three smartasses a month adding 'M back into the article because they don't know the difference between it and MISSINGNO. --Rapstah 15:08, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
