See this threadSubject: Broken link on Archaic's Bulbapedia talk page
Hi! There is an issue in the settings because Geodude's trademarked romaji isn't Ishitsubute, but Isitsubute. I just wanted to PM Archaic on the forums, but the link is broken. So, is it still possible here to PM staff members?
In the tales cited by the wikipedia page, the Barghest's portrayal and behavior seems to be very similar to Zoroark's portrayal and behavior in its own movie.In Northern English folklore, the Barghest or Barguest is a mythical monstrous black dog with large teeth and claws, though in other cases the name can refer to a ghost or household elf, especially in Northumberland and Durham, such as the Cauld Lad of Hylton.
One notable case is said to frequent a remote gorge named Troller's Gill in the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire, England. A ballad entitled "The Legend of the Troller's Gill" can be found in William Hone's Everyday Book (1830). It recounts the tale of a man who ventures forth "to the horrid gill of the limestone hill" in order to summon and confront the Barghest in an act of ritual magic. The man's lifeless body is discovered soon after with inhuman marks upon his breast. There is also a story of a Barghest entering the city of York occasionally where, according to legend, it preys on lone travellers in the city's narrow Snickelways. Whitby is also associated with the spectre.
In the 1870s a shapeshifting Barghest was said to live near Darlington and was said to take the form of a headless man (who would vanish in flames), a headless lady, a white cat, a rabbit, a dog, or a black dog. Another was said to live in an "uncannie-looking" dale between Darlington and Houghton near Throstlenest, and yet another haunted an area of wasteland between Wreghorn and Headingley Hill near Leeds.
The Barghest often serves as an omen of death. At the passing of a notable person the Barghest may appear, followed by all the other dogs of the local area in a kind of funeral procession, heralding the person's death with howling and barking. If anyone were to get in the Barghest's way it would strike out with its paw and leave a wound that never heals.
Besides taking the form of a large black dog with fiery eyes, it may also become invisible and walk about with the sound of rattling chains. It may also foretell the death of an individual by laying across the threshold of his or her house, and like the vampire the Barghest is unable to cross rivers.
The pronunciation on both is very similar, and Galar is protected by two legendary dogs. Maybe is there some other reference that better matches Galar?Gelert (Welsh pronunciation: [ˈɡɛlɛrt]) is a legendary dog associated with the village of Beddgelert (whose name means "Gelert's Grave") in Gwynedd, north-west Wales . In the legend, Llywelyn the Great returns from hunting to find his baby missing, the cradle overturned, and Gelert with a blood-smeared mouth. Believing the dog had savaged the child, Llywelyn draws his sword and kills Gelert. After the dog's dying yelp Llywelyn hears the cries of the baby, unharmed under the cradle, along with a dead wolf which had attacked the child and been killed by Gelert. Llywelyn is overcome with remorse and buries the dog with great ceremony, but can still hear its dying yelp. After that day Llywelyn never smiles again. The story is a variation on the "Faithful Hound" folk-tale motif, which lives on as an urban legend.
I think that the rest of Sun & Moon's episodes should count, but not the new series. I mean technically Ash has been a champion since the Orange League arc, but those weren't counted. After the new series starts I think Ash might be "reset" again, in which case we shouldn't count those episodes.This has been posted on the category's main talk page but I thought I'd post it here too as it's going to have to be addressed soon.
Under the category 'Episodes in which a Champion appears', all of the episodes of Sun and Moon since SM139 (Satoshi's victory over Gladion) have been counted... are we really counting a league champion like Satoshi along the likes of Shirona or Adeku? Because if we are, then the whole category becomes meaningless from this point on as Satoshi will be in every episode and it might as well be retired.
Thing in, the category has never counted league champions before. None of Alan's post-league XY episodes count. I do think there's a significant difference between a League Champion and a Pokemon Champion/Champion Master, so Satoshi's episodes shouldn't really be counted in this IMO.
