Talk:Pom Pom

From the Super Mario Wiki

Yo, just to point this out, but Pun pun means Share Share. Mirai Moon

It means "intense smell" in Japanese. PikaSamus (talk)

Poom Poom makes more "sense" to me. But that sounds nasty, it doesn't sound female for the character.--Prince Ludwig 11:05, 27 October 2011 (EDT)
So...? PikaSamus (talk)
Sounds so genderless to me. It just makes me feel that way. I expect the US to have a different name than Poom Poom, but it seems that she will be called Poom Poom in US.--Prince Ludwig 11:21, 27 October 2011 (EDT)

And why would a Character, a female one especially,be called "intense smell"?,also if i remember correctlly somtimes Nintendo's Japanese names for characters mean somthing completely different,and when translating into english or other languages the character obtains a totally new name.

I don't know... PikaSamus (talk)

I think that Poom Poom would make sense because Boom Boom's Japanese name is bunbun so it would be like this

JPN:Bunbun US:Boom Boom

JPN:Punpun US: Poom Poom

Her name might be Boom Boom too.[edit]

We got the Japanese name Punpun, but now that the western sites are out, she and Boom Boom are under the same label called "Boom Boom", so, should we wait the actual name (which might come within a game guide), or change the title to Boom Boom (female) or something like that?

Wait I say, Donaldthescotishtwin

Tis just an error

Speaking of Names...[edit]

I just noticed that "Punpun" is similar to "Bunbun" which is Boom Boom's Japanese name. Should this trivial info be added? aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 16:37, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

Don't think so. I think that was the point in the character's creation (to give Boom Boom a female counterpart). Mario4Ever
True. It could be added, though, if anyone else thinks it's relevant. aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 09:41, 3 November 2011 (EDT)
Isn't there a Homestar Runner character named Pom Pom? SMW2yoshi.gif Super Chris HelperMario.png 18:33, 4 November 2011 (CDT)
Yes, there is. He's the balloon-like one who talks in bubbles. Magikrazy51 (talk) P.S that isn't a reference, though.
The japan one is called punpun because it is a female version, and p sounds more feminine.

Pom Pom?[edit]

Why Pom Pom? Is there an official source that confirms her name as "Pom Pom"? User:MarioMaster720

I believe it's the English website, although it'd be nice if the person that had moved her here had cited their sources in the article itself, so we could avoid confusion... Bop1996 (Talk)

Never mind. The official Website confirms that her name is actually Pom Pom ;) User:MarioMaster720

Wrong! Offical english manual sated that it is Pun pun, not pom pom!!! Someone, please change it!!! --Sinanco 12:50, 11 November 2011 (EST)

What Manuel and yes the website calls her Pom Pom Raven Effect (talk)
just an error I think.

Remove relationship section?[edit]

"Pom-Pom is the female version of another Mario mid-boss and they sometimes appear together."

With the word cruft removed, that's the whole section. They don't have any dialogue or physical interraction that would make writing about an implied relationship worthwhile. Even by the crass standards of the relationship sections, this one is ridiculously worthless. Any opposition to removing it (and the similar section on the Boom Boom page)? --Glowsquid 20:33, 31 January 2012 (EST)

I support since this is just making a section to state the obvious, and we tend to remove such sections. Bop1996 (Talk)

Trick[edit]

In the third fight, with the Donut Blocks, is it possible to trick her when she's in her shell into falling out of the arena, by making Donut Blocks fall where she's about to land?

I think the game takes that into account and she either jumps it or lands in a different spot. Go ahead and test it out, though. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:09, 21 November 2016 (EST)
I don't have the game. It's on my userpage because I've played it, not because I own it.

Then I will see what I can find. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:10, 21 November 2016 (EST)
I have the game too. I can see what I can find too. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 13:15, 21 November 2016 (EST)
From my test, she didn't even go above the donut blocks while in her shell form. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 13:46, 21 November 2016 (EST)
