Organization

I'm going to make an attempt at organizing this/related pages to include more fandom and to better differentiate between the different "subdivisions" of the fandom (i.e. game vs. anime vs. various manga, etc.). I'm thinking of splitting them up à la Doctor Who Online Fandom & Doctor Who Offline Fandom (separate articles but still with links/summaries on the main page) -- so Pokémon Anime Fandom, Pokémon Game Fandom, and Pokémon Manga Fandom seem like good options, unless anyone has any objections/suggestions.

(For an example of why I think subdivisions are necessary, consider the characters from the games, anime, and manga. Many characters are unique to each medium, and others share names but have alternate canon backgrounds and characteristics depending on the source. To avoid confusion, it is probably best to discuss each subdivision separately. However, the different subdivisions/fandoms thereof tend to be interrelated, so I don't think a complete split is necessary the way it is for Star Trek.)

Sounds good. I would say just go ahead. :) --Doro 22:28, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
