Hey guys, the New Play Control Pikmin Prima guide calls them Bramble Gates and Stone Walls. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

Is Prima official? If so the article needs to be rewritten ('-_-) Last Onion

No it is not I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Yes it is. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't make up names like that. Maybe Stone Walls isn't the right name, but Bramble Gates makes sense. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

...I fail at reading. Right, I guess this makes sense, then, but that would mean every instance of 'gate' on the wiki needs to be replaced. Can we get some proof that Prima guides are official? I've never seen them, don't think they're sold here. And stone wall, since it's not in the guides, isn't worth calling that, certainly not worth capitalising. I'll change it to 'stone gate', since the others are called gates, and they are gates, really. GP
Prima is still not official! It is made in America, not by the people who made the game... I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

It says stone wall in the guide, but I don't think that's the official name. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

I did some research and I learned Prima has some relationship with each game's developers, and sometimes they work directly with the developers to make the guide. So they seem official. And about changing every gate into Bramble Gate, I think if you see one, change it. I don't think we should look at every article to see if it needs to be changed. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

Half of what they say is errors or unnofficial! Prima couldn't even get the names for the SSBM character's moves... I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

We should stop debating if Prima is official or not cause everyone else but you is fine with Bramble Gate, Crystal. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

I honestly preferred the generic "gate" since it's not given any other name in the games, but meh. I wonder if they'll be named in Pikmin 3. GP
No changing it... >.< Prez? JJ? Anyone? I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
If Prima is not Official changing every article with the term gate seems rather pointless. I vote we don't change it, even if we are not holding a vote. Last Onion
Thank you! I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Do they even call it gate in any of the games? Bramble Gate is the only name for it that I've seen. We should leave it how it is now and not change any other articles because of it. -PikminExpert Purplepelet.jpg

-.- I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

And the User has spoken.;-_- I'm RedpikminFire.PNGFlamethrower And I approve this message.

I honestly don't care what Prima calls them. If they are referred to nothing but these two definitions through the whole of the game, then I could see reasoning to change it. But we're talking about a guide here that we're not even sure if it's official or not. I vote against changing it, as it's not only unnecessary to do so (as GP said, a gate's a gate, really. If fruit was intended to grow on it really isn't that important), and we can give no convincing arguments.--Prezintenden
I'd still mention it on this page, like in the first sentence, saying it's a known alternative name. GP
I know Prez it's still not official. I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.

Do White of Purple Pikmin have any special adantage when breaking doors? And by the way, I sometimes get the feeling that the black gates in Pikmin 2 are weaker than whites. Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png

Snakeboss, I tested, and purple/white don't have any advantage, and whites aren't stronger than blacks ( unless you count a abouveground white gate vs. a underground black). As for the aurgument up there Prima is unofficial.--

Ok, I was just wondering why did the gates broke easier in Pikmin 2, but I think it was the underground, because the above ground are still stronger. Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png

Electric Fences[edit]

I've just always assumed the metal gates are just as durable as the normal white gates, but is that correct? And did we have any HP info on gates in the ISO data?--Prezintenden

Anyway, underground, gates are much weaker, obviously, and HP is set on a per-sublevel basis. Above ground, every specific gate has its own HP; black is always highest, white usually lower than electric; electric is always 16000. HP could go in the article, I guess? GP
Very odd...something inanimate has HP...nice find, Green.--FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!
Yeah, amazing find there, Greenpickle.
<_<
And, uh, why exactly is that odd? It's just the amount of damage needed to knock it down... Miles. 02:35, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
I dunno how Green found the health for an inanimate object, but that's all.--FREAK ~GameGame Freak Logo.png Freak~OUT!
I vote for in the article. I'm ~LonelyRedpikminsprite.jpgTurret~ And I approve this message.
...
Uh, anyway, I spent about 20 minutes in Paint earlier, and edited the maps with the amount of HP each gate has. Important to note is that this is the amount of damage it takes to lower the gate 1 level, which mean the total HP for each gate is actually triple these amounts.

[edit]

I think poison gates and the different colors of stone gates should get their own bullet pointsMRPANTS 08:22, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Talking about the 'Locations' section, right? That already seems to be the case. GP

I was talking about the variations section...shoulda mentioned thatMRPANTS 16:03, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Edits, edits everywhere[edit]

There are thousands of edits on the number of white gates on this page. Someone who really knows what he's talking about should disambiguate. We need to specify if the white gates are all types of white gates, or simple white gates, to avoid having these edits. {EspyoT} 12:13, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

T'would be nice Ridly Metroid.gif Skree! 15:59, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

"White gates", in those list, are those without poison.  I thought it'd be obvious we wouldn't list the same gate twice, and would want to list poison gates separately. GP:
I just supposed that the edits originated from that messup. {EspyoT} 10:56, 30 April 2011 (EDT)

Should we list gates that only appear Pikmin 1 challenge mode? 121.jpg Loafy the Breadbug 121.jpg

I'd say yes. GP
Yep. The more [useful] info, the better. {EspyoT} 10:56, 30 April 2011 (EDT)

Guess I should get started then. Should I make a new section for them or include them in the ordinary locations but put something next to it like (Challenge Mode only)? 121.jpg Loafy the Breadbug 121.jpg

Depends. If the Challenge Mode exclusive ones are almost all the same as story mode ones, you should add them to the regular list, but with a note next to it. If they defer much, it's best to just put them in a new section. {EspyoT} 17:14, 30 April 2011 (EDT)

Just checked, and there's actually only one truly exclusive gate and its in the Final Trial. Some have been removed and some have been changed (Some Metal gates are now normal wood and some normal wood gates are now metal.) How exactly should I put that in? 121.jpg Loafy the Breadbug 121.jpg P.S should I include exclusive bridges in the bridge article?

Just add it all to a separate section, then someone else can merge them in if need be. And yes, bridges should be treated the same. GP

Done. I think it might need to be edited and perfected a bit, because I don't think its very good. Kind of hard to word it. 121.jpg Loafy the Breadbug 121.jpg

Now that the page has a new layout, I'll move the old locations here, so that the article is less cluttered. We need to add these back to the article, but with proper explanation of the locations.

Do we really need gate locations for Bingo Battle as well? Seems unnecessary if ya ask me, considering how much work it'd be, and how much people would actually care about it. AeroBlaze777sig.png Talk 00:05, 22 February 2015 (EST)
For the sake of completion? We must. For the sake of importance? It's one of the absolute least important things in the entire wiki. In other words, we should add the locations so that the information is complete, but only when we really, really don't have anything else to do. — {EspyoT} 08:37, 22 February 2015 (EST)

Split[edit]

I think that this article should be split, as it covers several topics that are distinct enough to have their own articles. There's enough to say about dirt walls, bramble gates, reinforced walls, crystal walls, electric gates, and bamboo gates that they should all get their own articles. This article would remain to list these varieties of gates, as well as to cover the rare kinds of walls. What do you think of this proposal? — Botanist(talk) 19:31, June 30, 2021 (EDT)

I support this proposition. If changes are radical enough, it could have a similar purpose and structure to the hazards page, so that page can be used as somewhat of a template. Coincidentally, the same split will be happening on the Pikmin Fanon's gate article! – ContributionsCheepy (talk)
It is a bit cramped as it is, that's for sure, but I doubt there's enough information to say about each one... They're all just one, two paragraphs, and then a list of locations. I really want to support this for cleanliness's sake, but creating six or so articles with just a few words of actual content is something I'm not feeling. — {EspyoT} 14:14, July 12, 2021 (EDT)
Most of the gate articles would be longer than some of the menu articles, and this article is in a similar situation to what Menu used to be in, with too much content on one page, making it potentially confusing to navigate. (The names in other languages are separated from the gates they describe, for example.) Perhaps if we got more technical information about the gates, or maps of where gates are located, there would be enough sections to split the article. — Botanist(talk) 21:19, July 17, 2021 (EDT)
I guess so. — {EspyoT} 13:11, July 27, 2021 (EDT)
That said, now would probably be a great time to finally retcon the name "bramble gate", since that's not bramble. I've had this conversation many times in the past, but there was never a conclusion. Maybe it's time to just pick one and get it over with. The best candidates are probably "wood" and "root". — {EspyoT} 13:18, July 27, 2021 (EDT)
I don't really see a problem with "bramble gate" if it's used in a guide and there isn't a good word to describe what the gate is made of. It could be called a "basic gate", but that could create confusion with dirt walls. — Botanist(talk) 20:28, July 30, 2021 (EDT)
Guide? I don't follow. "Bramble gate" is a misnomer because there is nothing bramble about it. Brambles are plants whose branches have spikes; these gates don't look like plants, are nowhere near plants, and don't have any spikes. I also agree that something like "basic gate" won't fly. — {EspyoT} 08:16, August 1, 2021 (EDT)
