pokemon red ninetails legend is wrong
#1
that guy got that legend from a show called naruto and its not the real legend. (deleted due to people using excessive sarcasm that was in no way necessary or called for) the kitsune is not a "giant fire breathing monster" its a legend based on the "slay don't lay" concept, man has sex with fox spirit, man gets body taken over by fox spirit, that's the legend.
the legend is based on a very real parasite that infects other hosts by, what else, sexual contact. it stays in the liver disguised as pustules, but is actually an egg sack and its temporary home after hatching. if the sack bursts the parasite runs free and terrorizes the body, including the brain, where it causes the new host to do insane things like twitching in the arms or legs, blindness, and various forms of other strange things. it was believed to be the spirit of a fox, but was nothing more than a parasite. medical fact proves this legend somewhat true. not fire breathing, not giant, and not a monster. just a parasite that causes phantom movement that got transferred from a fox, to a human.

Don't trust wikipedia, its edited by people who don't get their facts from the source

here's two links, the parasite information comes from my knowledge of parasites and their origins
also most of my information comes not from these websites but from the knowledge of Japanese culture and anthropology classes

i just stated your facts are falsified and your spending your time insulting me. real mature, real clever. now either read the true facts and change it, or my attempt was in vain and you are too stubborn and arrogant to listen to someone who knows the truth. don't be a dick about it, don't make yourself look like an ass, and dont insult someone who is trying to help you! all your doing is shooting yourself in the foot!

Were you to have voiced your opinion in a more civil way, the reaction may have been more positive -- yet you deleted two of your posts and redacted the first. Therein lies the problem.

As Seriously said, we appreciate the effort and all, but you gotta work on the first impression.

While I think the source could be better and I can tell that the person who wrote the source probably saw Naruto before knowing what a kitsune is, your logic is a little flawed. According to one of your own sources:

"Other supernatural abilities commonly attributed to the kitsune include
possession, mouths or tails that generate fire or lightning"

That being said, I still think that the trivia, while it seems a bit sparse and could use a bit of sprucing up if possible, IS still accurate enough. Yours about sex and egg sacs is irrelevant to the Pokemon character.

my computer has its own thoughts, when i highlighted the edit button it ended up deleting things. typical of my computer to do the opposite of what i want it to do. my computer is 7 years old, its bad, and does not like forums or high ram demanding pages. sorry about that

to tomguy, the information stated is the legend and its facts based on real world events and problems. to psycho, i suffer from chronic migraines, you cant blame me for being a little angry, plus i just learned my computer deleted things i meant to edit

and to seriously, you took a comment i made and started a string of sarcasm that i felt were insults to my intelligence, and you took something i meant to say about gamesradar sucking and posting anime mythos for real facts
and really tomguy mouths or tails of fire and lightning does not make them giant fire breathing monsters that Americanized anime seems to want to call a legit legend from Japan

To reaper, I do too, and I am autistic. Don't try to pin this on me.
