Pokemon on Citizendium

Hmmm. Well, I suppose it's encyclopaedic content. J. Noel Chiappa 14:37, 31 March 2008 (CDT)

I guess it will end up like this: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots which is not too bad. Except it seems to run into the potential problem of looking like an advertisement.
I think the thing that is remarkable in wikipedia is not the fact that pokemon is present, but that it is there in vast numbers and in every minute detail. Chris Day 14:59, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
If it were up to me I'd just have one single article explaining the concept and phenomenae of pokemon in culture, and nothing else. --Robert W King 15:06, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
I'm pretty much a radical inclusivist. Hard drives are cheap and plentiful. Poké away! --Tom Morris 15:15, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
To repeate what I just said elsewhere: What about our 'maintainability' standard, in the long run? Will anyone care about this article in, say, 20 years? I am in general inclusionist, but only of stuff that's going to have some lasting interest/utility. I also worry that too much popular culture, and not enough serious content, will put us in the same intellectual ghetto (common-perception-wise) as Wikipedia. J. Noel Chiappa 21:16, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
I also have to agree with this. --Robert W King 21:56, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
It's under the Recreation section of the CZ:Core Articles list, so I thought I'd at least make a start. ;) Oliver Smith 14:41, 1 April 2008 (CDT)
How about just one article describing what it is, the impact it has, etc etc from an encyclopedic standpoint, but not like the buh-zillion WP articles. I believe they have most of this ground extremely, obsessively well-covered and I for one believe this is something that WP will always excel at. --Robert W King 14:45, 1 April 2008 (CDT)

Agree with Robert here and possibly this will be an example where a rich subpage environment can be created? Chris Day 14:48, 1 April 2008 (CDT)

I am hesitant to encourage extensive subpage development here; I only know that the pokemon universe is astronomically huge and it would almost be *abuse* of the subpage system to build an entire compendium of pokemon in the cluster. I believe that there are pokemon wikis that are dedicated to this, which should be an indicator of its status. --Robert W King 14:50, 1 April 2008 (CDT)
Within reason, of course. I was thinking along the lines of catalogs, for one. Galleries and timelines too. Chris Day 14:56, 1 April 2008 (CDT)
