Talk:Pokémon: An international cultural phenomenon

Images

Would anybody be able to assist me in uploading a couple of images for use in the article? I'd like to use a screenshot of the Top Gear reference for one. Cheers, Matkin22 14:51, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, I believe I figured it out. Matkin22 14:57, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Not to sound nitpicky or anything, but you spelled Phenomenon wrong. =P --Jonouchi 15:54, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Swellow/Swallow

I'm sure those are probably just swallows, swellows real world counterpart.Morgil27 16:31, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Second that; nice article though Arty2 16:48, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, those were just swallows. Swellow's coloration is remarkably similar to the coloration of actual swallows, which is probably why these particular swallows resemble Swellow so much. Philos 19:11, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't, they look way too much like swellow..YukitoOoO 18:03, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, i think they're Taillow. Swellows have bigger heads and feathers. Empath-Silvio 19:41, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

I think it's pretty clearly a swallow, for two reasons: 1. Taillow/Swellow aren't nearly well-known enough to be parodied by the Simpsons. Just a public consciousness thing. 2. The line about them returning to Springfield is pretty clearly a reference to the famous Capistrano Swallows, whose annual return to their nests is a pretty big tourist attraction. For reference, here's an image of the Capistrano Swallows. Hope that clears it up! The rest of the article was good. BeatlesLover 01:00, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Everybody Loves Raymond

I haven't seen the episode. What indicates Pokemon more than any other TCG? PLA 20:01, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

  • One of the Hackidu referred by name is a "Scramisaur", and it is mentioned that there's a TV show, as much as I can remember. The cards also seem similar to the novelty collectible cards by Topps. [1] Though it could be as much a Yu-Gi-Oh reference. Knuclear200x 03:03, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Austin Powers in Goldmember

If my memory is correct, than the reference is someone in a Charmander suit running around while Tokyo is attacked by a Godzilla float. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 01:14, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
