I think episode guides, and maybe even pokemon lists, would be excellent candidates for moving over to WikiBooks.
What is the point of that? Its not like Wikipedia's Pokemon articles get in the way of other articles, its just that, for some inane reason, the people in charge of Wikipedia (such as Raul) are big Pokemon fans, and not as fond of more, academic, subjects.
Which is why I said "maybe even". I'm not a fan of the idea on its face, but I might be able to be convinced. Moving episode lists/guides would benefit all parties, by letting them expand them greatly, insert commentary, etc., and cause more interaction between Wikibooks and Wikipedia.

However, what I have a problem with is that other articles that are far more notable are being deleted. We had a famous politician deleted a while back, purely because he wrote the article about himself. The argument was that it was a "vanity" article, yet he was actually quite famous and well known. So if its vanity, sure, forbid him from editing it, but still have the article. But more realistically, he of course is an expert on himself. He's biased, yes, but he's still an expert.
Technically that would count as original research, unless he's citing other works.
