Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

I'm partly doing this to attract attention to it, as the article is probably lacking a lot of the information it could have. Also, I think it's a good article to feature as SSBB's the game of the moment, and it does have a few interesting pictures and bits of writing. GP 15:49, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

  2. The fact that it isn't about the games themselves annoys me. However, you have convincing points... Heck, I'll give it a yes. It won't hurt anyone.--Prezintenden
  3. I support it as long as the discription on the front page says something like "Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a Nintendo Fighting Game in which Olimar is a playable character." 67.172.252.52 01:49, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
    Yeah, it'll be the first paragraph already on the article, plus whatever seems important and well-written from further down. GP 08:04, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
  4. Great idea :DDDDDD!~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~

Scale[edit]

I think this is a good article bc it has a lot of info, shows how to solve them, and has good pictures. IAMAHIPO_ocolor 15:49, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

  • Firstly, I think some bits need rewording, as it's a bit...wordy. After that, I'll reconsider. GP 16:49, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

  3. It's the coolest looking plant in pikmin.--Large pixal snowy bulborb.PNGSnowy bulborb

Bulbmin[edit]

I like Bulbmin because the bulborb-pikmin symbiotic relationship is so unique and compelling, in particular the Juvenile ones you can control. Also, players of Pikmin 2 who stopped playing before encountering them might feel compelled to play it again. 71.205.154.176 23:45, 7 May 2008 (UTC)Mikeburnfire

Oppose[edit]

  1. Right, they're the only non-mentioned Pikmin, so I'll count them as a spoiler; as small as it is. It's certainly an article still worth featuring, but not now. --Prezintenden 18:54, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
  2. Ditto.~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~

Comments[edit]

Also, would it be possible to split up the Bulbmin topic into "Bulbmin (adult)" and "Bulbmin (Juvenile)"? I know that they are both part of the same species, but their roles as enemies and pikmin are vastly different.

I see no reason why to do so. This discussion was also held here. Adding Bulbmin to the main page is rather spoilish. Do we ignore this fact? I'm not sure to what extent this would spoil.--Prezintenden
Actually, I split the page quite a while back, sorting everything out. GP
Were we talking about splitting it into different pages, or into different sections?--Prezintenden
I think the original suggestion was splitting into 2 pages, then we both said it would be better to split the article, which I did. Then it kind of went away. GP 18:17, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Fix joo think? I'm ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ And I approve this message.

Caustic Dweevil[edit]

'Cause we need to feature something. I just cleaned up the text in this one, but it could do with a new picture. Another option is Red Bulborb. GP

  2. It could be better, but it's good enough, I guess. GP
  3. It's an important part of the game (kinda; well, it's a sub-menu from the main menu. That's important enough). I haven't played Pikmin 2 yet, but I guess that's all the info that's needed to be complete. {EspyoT} 12:53, 21 September 2010 (EDT)
  4. The article is very descriptive on 2 player mode. Turtwig A 19:21, 21 September 2010 (EDT)
  5. I'm back. And I support. However. as Green said, there are better articles. That being said, this shall suffice. Ridly Roar! 06:23, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Purple Pikmin[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. The one and only,Dwarforangebulborb.jpgPeanut64. I nominated this for a new featured Article, and I like the way the article is set up.
  2. GP - Ugh, I guess so. (^Regarding the featured image, I was intending to say we should just have any admin allowed to change it whenever, and users can put ideas on the talk page if they want (as, apparently, I've already stated there).)
  3. {EspyoT} It IS a major part of the game.
  4. 173.74.116.119 Very well writen.
  5. Vol (Talk) Okay, looks good.

Smoky Progg[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. random creepy guy. I'm nominating this because I think more people shold know about the Smoky Progg, and the article gives lots of information along with some good examples of glitches, battle stratagies, etc.
  2. {EspyoT} Basically, what random creepy guy said.
  3. Vol (Talk) It's better than Purple Pikmin (as in the article).
  4. Prezintenden - Voting for both, are we, Espyo?
  5. GP (^Why not? We need something for after this one.)
  6. Mudkip - Basically, Smoky Progg is a somewhat unknown boss, he's cool, has a cool glitch, the page is better, ETCETERA. Plus, I think White Pikmin are out to get your Golden Pikpik Carrots. EVIL
  7. 173.74.116.119 I'm nominating this because we need to spead the word about this boss.

  1. .:SkaPunkMan89:. 22:18, 28 July 2011 (EDT) Personally, I think this would be a marvelous addition to the feature article section primary because it's a unique treasure and upgrade that is not obtained normally from bosses and is instead obtained from a Mamuta
  2. {EspyoT} It's a bit different from your standard featured article. Why not?

Comments[edit]

So are we going to use this or not? The current article is going to have been featured for a year soon, and since Puffy Blowhog most likely isn't going to win, I think we should just go with this one. -Los Plagas (talk)

Onion[edit]

This is a pretty basic aspect of the Pikmin series, but an interesting subject nonetheless. It provides sufficient information about the Onions, as well as each individual Onion type, along with general information about the Onions.

  2. Meh, I guess it's okay. It is well written, and it does provide enough information. I see no reason to oppose, so I'll support. One last thing: at least it's not as desperately needed as a replacement as Burrowing Snagret was. We kept that for literally about a year, give or take. -Los Plagas (talk)
  3. What Los Plagas said. — {EspyoT} 08:01, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
  4. A well written page with pictures, information about the subject,and not too much straying from the facts, this is featured artice gold.- User:Robecuba

Carrying[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. Without wanting to boast too much, I think it's one of the more elaborate articles we have. It's complete, it has a good images, it has both general information and in-depth detail... I'm just not sure about the speed section. — {EspyoT} 12:44, 17 April 2014 (EDT)
  2. I think it's a good article, and I especially like the oversights. Besides, Onion has been up for what, 13 months now? Ugh, let's get Carrying in! ~PikFan23
  3. ya carrying is to get to the onion so it's better and onions been up for like 13 months-Mns2002

Comments[edit]

  • I don't mean to be pushy, but, uh... Onion has been up way too long (14 months at this point? Yikes.) and we really need to get in a new FA. A new featured image wouldn't hurt either... Hmm. So many things need to be updated... ~PikFan23 03:01, 21 August 2014 (EDT)
    • After the merge. Then we'll update the background, the front page, the FAs... — {EspyoT} 04:34, 21 August 2014 (EDT)
      • Of course, I didn't mean during the merge, heh. Great change is headed our way... ~PikFan23 04:23, 23 August 2014 (EDT)

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) With Chuggaaconroy doing Pikmin 3, I figure we should have a Pikmin 3-related article. This article is about probably the most important objects in the game, it's complete, has interesting bits, good images, etc. I don't think there's a single thing stopping us from featuring this one. — {EspyoT} 15:04, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
  2. Ditto. Also, it's got links to other useful Pikmin 3 articles, which would be helpful for those new to the series. ~PikFan23 16:02, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) A lot of people on Youtube often leave comments about how frustrating it is to speedrun Pikmin 3 due to fixed events and the overall linearity of the game. Because of this, I nominate this article to help raise aware that speedrunning the game is, in fact, entirely possible. ShadowRaptor101 (talk) 15:13, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
  2. Agreed, but not as the next featured article. But definitely one of the next ones. — {EspyoT} 04:08, 28 September 2015 (EDT)

Comments[edit]

  • Not yet, actually. I feel like there's still info we can elaborate on further. For instance, what if you get an extinction and land on an area with 100 seeds in Pikmin 3? — {EspyoT} 18:19, 30 November 2015 (EST)

Pellet[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It's a clean article, has all the info it needs to have, follows the policies just fine, and can spark a lot of discussion and education, with the Quaggled Mireclops pellet color and the "3 Pikmin on one pellet" shenanigans. Its (simple) to dos need to be cleared up, though. — {EspyoT} 09:24, 27 July 2016 (EDT)
  2. Agreed. I think it needs some images, though (particularly: 20 pellets and 10 pellets), but it's good overall. Marty (talk) 10:23, 27 July 2016 (EDT)
