- But that's his Japanese name, his American name is "Pokey". - Smashgoom202 17:49, 30 January 2008 (EST)
- Mother 3 wasn't released in America, yes. However, EarthBound (Mother 2) was released in America, and Pokey did appear in that game. For having played it, his name is infact Pokey Minch ingame. Blitzwing (talk · gnome work)
I think I've spotted a mistake.
"When Pokey is fought, he isn't the old Pokey that appeared with the machine from Mother 3, but rather, he appears as the young Pokey from EarthBound."
This is probably incorrect. If you look closely, you can see what looks like his moustache from Mother 3. 
Can't we at least add that he was called "Pokey Minch" in EarthBound. I think it's important... - Smashgoom202 08:41, 19 March 2008 (EDT)
Yeah. Although his offical name in Brawl is Porky, his alias of Pokey should be mentioned. HyperToad
Uhum- He was called "Pokey" in Earthbound, as his brother is called "Picky". One, Pokes, one Picks. However, in MOTHER 3, he was changed to Porky to match the Pigmask army and such. We must include something about this. Hyper Guy (talk)
- He was referred to simply as Porky in SSBB, but the name Pokeywas apparently a typo, so I think we should just leave this article as is and make a redirect from Porky to here.--FREAK ~Game Freak~ OUT!
Why does this article exist? Porky isn't related to the Mario franchise in any way, and I don't recall any Mario characters fighting him in the Subspace Emissary, so should we delete this? TheDarkStar 11:43, January 19, 2020 (EST)
- Anyone can fight him in The Great Maze or Boss Battles mode, and there would be a conspicuous gap in Smash Bros. boss coverage. LinkTheLefty (talk) 12:29, January 19, 2020 (EST)
