Shouldn't this be protected to prevent vandelism much like the main page is? Truthseeker4449 13:04, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

It is protected.--Supermon 20:24, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
I know it is now, it wasn't when I post the message above. And I stayed up to date on status of the page and thus noticed when it was semi-protected then fully protected. Truthseeker4449 20:30, 28 December 2011 (UTC)


I need help changing one of the type effects of Tentacool over to somewhere else. I am a new member so I don't know how to do all these changes so if someone can help that will be nice.

what needs to be changed is electric needs to be taken out of tentacool's weakness column and put in the regular effect column. if someone can tell me how to do that then that will be nice thanks again. (Roadmaster84 23:29, 21 December 2011 (UTC))

Tentacool is a Water/Poison Pokémon. Water is weak to Electric and Poison is neutral to Electric. Therefore Tentacool is weak to Electric moves and the existing chart is correct. Werdnae (talk) 23:38, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Page Like "Incomplete" for "Bad Picture"?

Is there a section for Bad Picture just like there is for Incomplete? I can't find it anywhere! --Wildgoosespeeder 00:19, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

You mean like this? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:23, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Cool! Where did you find that link? If it is really hidden and out of the way, I think it should be in the box with the Machop. --Wildgoosespeeder 00:39, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't know what machop you're talking about, but it's in the categories on any page that has that template. In particular, I found it here. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:56, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
The Machop on the Editor's Hub page! There are three links to get you started improving articles. --Wildgoosespeeder 01:06, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh, haha, I see. I rarely look at the Editor Hub. Alright, I added it. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:11, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Recycle restoring Air Balloon

The page Recycle doesn't mention anything about being able/unable to restore a popped Air Balloon. Shouldn't that be changed? PC-Reviver 15:59, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

No, because a popped Air Balloon is an item that's been consumed, and thus falls under the category of consumed items. - signed comment from q~Bisumito is Snazzy~p (talkcontribs) 20:31, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

how do i get permission to make pages

hi im new and wondering how to make pages Xspeedx 18:05, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

You need to make a (top secret) number of edits to the mainspace (i.e. articles) and have had your account for a short (also top secret) length of time. This is done so that you get a chance +to learn our rules and styles before trying to build a page on your own. Werdnae (talk) 03:54, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

I need advice

Hi, I saw the Anville town Article and saw the section at the top said you can get to anvillle town using the Anville town line in the battle subway. I was thinking that changing it to the Brown line because it's colour is brown? I'm not sure if i should but please tell me if i'm right! SkyAltaria1 14:16, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps it would be more precise to change it the brown line instead of just saying "Anville line". I don't think there's any harm in changing it. --Pokemaster97 15:38, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok Thanks :) SkyAltaria1 06:49, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Hey, I need advice too. I know of a glitch that is fairly well-known, yet this wiki doesn't have a page for it. I notice that most glitches have their own pages as well as appearing on the List of Glitches section of the Glitch page. However, I don't have permission to make pages yet. Should I just add this glitch to the List of Glitches and hope someone else makes a page for it, or should I request that a page for it be made, or what? HappyGasGames (talk) 17:06, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

If you have a question on a topic that's glitch related, you should talk to SnorlaxMonster. He's the leader of Project:Glichdex and would probably have the answers you're looking for. --Pokemaster97 17:10, 3 August 2012 (UTC)


I'm not entirely fond of how Bulbapedia handles their Japanese names for things, primarily how we use the trademarked name and completely ignore the rōmaji. Yes, I think it's important to have the trademarked Japanese names, but I think it's also equally important to have the bare rōmaji, too. I think it would be effective to use the {{tt}} template around the Japanese text itself to show the rōmaji alongside the trademarked name. For example, it would look like this: ラルトス Ralts or カメックス Kamex.
Would anyone object to me going around and doing this? Mitsuru 23:13, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

List of Japanese Pokémon names. This does that. I personally do not like the idea for esthetic reasons. --ケンジガール 23:19, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Alright, but it applies to more than just Pokémon themselves. Many pages unrelated to Pokémon suffer the same (Snag Machine, N, etc.). And I disagree; I don't think it's too much of an eyesore, and it's hardly invasive. Mitsuru 03:06, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

BW2 Soundtrack

Do we need a page for the BW2 soundtrack "Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 Super Music Complete"? I have the CD here and I figured I might as well contribute. Me, Hurray! (talk) 20:00, 3 August 2012 (UTC) Nobody? No. Okay, you can remove it if you don't like it. It was fun to do anyway. Me, Hurray! (talk) 00:02, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Bulbawiki Festive Frontier?

"As outlined on Bulbagarden forums, Bulbapedia is done hosting its second annual Christmas Improvement Drive. The Festive Frontier challenge is now over."

Wasn't the Festive Frontier challenge from last year or was it a few months ago? (Just curious since it is currently up on the page.) --Super goku (talk) 02:34, 24 October 2012 (UTC)


Staff of PokéPark 2 is already made. Don't you think we should take it off the Needed articles section? ☆ヨッシ の世界☆ 00:17, 21 March 2013 (UTC)


How many Edits do I need to do/have to add New Articles? Lskitto (talk) 04:52, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

It's an secret amount of edits and a secret amount of time that is only known to staff. Keep editing, and you'll eventually be able to start articles. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 04:54, 25 March 2013 (UTC)


How do you get a screenshot of an entire city/route/area in the video games? 152105 (talk) 20:14, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Linking Pages

When I put in a link to another page it always comes out as Template:whatever-the-article-name-is and I have no idea why.Uglycats101 (talk) 13:26, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

It would be because you are using {{ and }} to link instead of [[ and ]] one links to templates the other links to pages. --Spriteit (talk) 13:41, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

oh thanks so much, it works!!! but how do I get those brackets you used they're not on my keyboard or in the character palette at the bottom of the screen I'm currently using copy and paste to get them in. Uglycats101 (talk) 13:30, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

What keyboard layout do you have? It would be incredibly unusual for any keyboard to not have those brackets. On a standard QWERTY keyboard, they're immediately to the right of the P key, such that typing this whole row yields QWERTYUIOP[]\. --SnorlaxMonster 17:14, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Kato and Kiko

I need help adding a trivia sentence for Kato and Kiko. I don't want to try and add a new trivia sentence and end up messing up the whole thing for their trivia. Either someone help me or ill just tell you what I want to post so you can do it yourselves:

For Kato's trivia: Kato's hairstyle resembles the horn of his pokemon, Heracross.

For Kiko's trivia: Kiko's hairstyle resembles the wings of her pokemon, Beautifly.

If you can tell me how to post it that would be excellent or if you want to post it yourself that would be just as excellent. If you end up doing it yourself don't add both on one just kato's on Kato's page and Kiko's on Kiko@'s page. I don't mind either way as long as it manages to get posted and i have some credit for it. Thanks. (RioluMaster1123 (talk) 01:01, 8 June 2013 (UTC))

Message of the Day

There are no more featured MotDs. That part of this page should be replaced. Spyspotter says… Edit the mainspace, kids! 03:08, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't see any "Message of the Day" on this page. Unless you mean the Message from the Editor, which should stay and will be updated when there is new information to put there. --SnorlaxMonster 05:28, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I mean the featured content. - unsigned comment from Spyspotter (talkcontribs) 01:00, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Protection of Pokemon X/Y related articles

I've been noticing that the admins on this site have been protecting almost all Pokemon X/Y related articles and not allowing normal users due to "Speculation Crackdown" till after October 12. It's kind of harsh because not all normal users registered users on this site are speculators. Some really want to help this site gather information from official sources as the game's release draws closer. Blueknightex (talk) 09:41, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

While not all registered users will add speculation, it only takes a handful of users to wreak massive havoc across a wide spread of pages. A lot of XY articles were locked as a reaction to speculation, not as a proactive measure. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 17:48, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Speculation would not be good for bulbapedia's reputation, and I'm sure no-one wants that! Like Blueknightex said, it only takes a handful of people to wreak havoc with speculations and rumours. --KyuremDialga101 (talk) 01:11, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Article on Ash's Charizard does not need editing

I noticed that the article Charizard was in need of an English voice actor. However, after some heavy research, I found out that the voice actor is the same as the Japanese one. What do I do now? Please help, I just joined! --KyuremDialga101 (talk) 01:08, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

It could refer to Charmander and Charmeleon. They showed up in flashbacks during BW and, while I didn't watch the episode myself, it could be they spoke during the flashbacks, and had different voice actors. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:11, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi. The voice actor data for Charmander and Charmeleon was present, so it was not referring to them. Currently, the page is showing that for Charizard, the Japanese voice actor did both the Japanese AND the English roles. However, Bulbapedia has named the data as incomplete. Is there anyone I could take my concerns to? Thanks. --KyuremDialga101 (talk) 01:13, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Charmander and Charmeleon's voice actors on the article are the 4kids actors. During the Advanced Generation the dub was passed on to DuArt. For example, look at Ash's Bulbasaur. See how it says Tara Jayne for EP010-AG133 then Michele Knotz as current? That's because of the voice actor swap. Since Charmander and Charmeleon appeared in the Best Wishes series, they would have been given new voice actors. Those are the ones that are missing. If you want, you can leave a message on Kenji-girl's talk page. She's been busy lately so it might take her a while to respond. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:26, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
