Merge with Balkiry

I'd propose merging this with Balkiry, as "Valkeen", what it's designated as in the game files, appears to be a romanization of the Japanese name for Balkiry, "Valkyn" (バルキーン, "Barukīn" is pronounced the same way as "Valkeen" would be in Japanese), and I believe they're intended to be the same enemy, just redesigned like the others.

There is nothing subjectively proving this. It is a good theory, but we cannot be sure of this.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 20:52, December 30, 2017 (UTC)
I see where you're coming from, and I'd be inclined to agree with you if they didn't have almost identical names ("Valkyn" appears to be a fan romanization, "Valkeen" would also be acceptable if one were to romanize the word, and it doesn't seem like any official English spelling has been given by SEGA).
Several other enemies in Forces don't have much objective proof of being the same outside of behaviors, as far as I can tell, Aero-Chaser and Sandworm aren't named in ANY known source, and both of them appear so radically different from their previous incarnations to the point that it'd be hard to recognize them on appearance alone, but due to their behavior one can logically conclude they're intended to be the same enemies.
"Valkeen" is so close to "Valkyn"/"Barukiin", and they appear fairly similar, so I feel like it's kind of odd NOT to consider them the same, it'd be like making a separate page for the Egg Pawns in Forces if were unnamed outside of the files, and were called "Eggpon" or something in the data.
