Many users, including myself, have put in a piece of trivia which is "The Garnet Star is the only Crystal Star that does not share its name with a Pokémon Game." or something similar, only to have it deleted for reasons such as "Unessesary" or "Not Mario-Related". Well, is it really necessary to put in whether planets in Super Mario Galaxy only reachable through hacks are solid or not? This piece is more informative than those, but the other has a place in trivia and this one doesn't. As for not Mario-Related what about a piece of trivia from the Coin article, "The Poko from Pikmin 2 bear a strong resemblance to Coins." That relates to Mario as much as this one does. I believe the definition of trivia is a fun fact that is not notable enough to be in the main article, but can be placed as "Trivia". This is notable enough to be a piece of trivia. Also, not everyone may be able to find this out, if they don't play Pokémon they most likely wouldn't know. It is necessary to create a proposal for this, because this trivia piece is continuously being deleted. If this proposal passes this piece of trivia will be put into the article and not be deleted. However, if this proposal fails the trivia piece should never be attempted to get added in the article again.

Support[edit]

  1. Koopa K (talk) I have made my point.

Oppose[edit]

  1. DonnyKD (talk) It isn't a Pokemon reference, Garnet is a type of mineral, and there isn't even a Pokemon game called "Pokemon Garnet" so that's a bit of a stretch.
  2. Raven Effect (talk) How can it be a pokemon reference when Diamond wasn't released at that point.
  3. GreenDisaster (talk) Per all.

Comments[edit]

Your comment about how we have trivia like the Animal Crossing reference and the Pikmin reference is flawed, because you're implying that Paper Mario somehow got the Crystal Star idea from POKEMON games. By that logic, the Ruby Star would have been called the Red Star, and even then, that's still grasping at straws. DonnyKD (talk) 12:13, 9 September 2012 (EDT)

No, that's not what I'm saying, I know it is a reference to the mineral, we should put after the trivia piece "However, this is most likely a coincidence because all of the Crystal Stars are all named after minerals, and Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Emerald were released after Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door". Koopa K (talk)
Why would we say it was a reference when 2 of the games weren't released yet. Raven Effect (talk)
I'm not saying it was a reference, I'm saying it is a coincidence, we do have pieces of trivia that are coincidences. Koopa K (talk)
If we do, we should't have them. Coincidences happen so often that there's no point in mentioning them unless it's something really specific. GreenDisaster (talk) 12:26, 9 September 2012 (EDT)
You're grasping at straws, Koopa K. By your logic, we should go to the article about Boost Mode, and post that it "coincidentally" shares the same name as a special mode in the Sonic Advance/Sonic Rush series. DonnyKD (talk) 12:27, 9 September 2012 (EDT)
