I'd be happy to help out with Project Anime. I'm not very good at writing synopses, but I'll be able to create the character lists for many episodes from Master Quest through Advanced Battle, as well as some Orange Islands episodes and a few Johto Journies episodes. I can also put in errors and dub edits for the episodes. --PAK Man 23:50, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm also interested in participating in this project. Specifically, I was wondering if we could add for each episode a "Notes" and "References to past canon" section, similar to the format that the Battlestar Wiki episode guides have. Other than that, I'm more than willing to provide the usual episode summaries and screenshots. --Swifty 13:07, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I'd be okay, since I can predict when this episode is going to air in the U.S, and I might be right, when I see the episode air, I'll put the actual date in. --NeverReturn 16:33, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

Please avoid all predictions or speculative information. Just because you "might be" right doesn't mean you are, unfortunately, and until we are certain of the real date it's best to have no date at all. --Pie ~ 22:58, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

What am I gonna do? --NeverReturn 16:33, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

If you want to know what you can do to help this project, I can whip up a to-do list in a while. --Pie ~ 23:08, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Darn it! --NeverReturn 16:33, 27 February 2007 (GMT)

I'd like to help as well. I've already done a few synopsis sections in the original series. --Dux 16:16, 2 January 2008 (GMT)

Please, sign the petition!!

I know this doesn't have very much to do with the Project anime. But in Italy only 5 Pokémon movies have been relased. Italia 1 owns all the movies, but it does not want to broadcast them. Please, sign this petition to help italian fans!!

We need all PokéFans' help! ç_ç --Firempoleon 09:41, 11 August 2008 (UTC)


Okay, after the lack of reformatting on one tipped me off, I'm noting that there are several articles which had the same summary as can be found on However, they are apparently being credited to Altomare Latias. Do we have permission to use this work? (Even if we do, they need editing - they came up because the @#$@#()% things don't use the é in Pokémon...) --Pie ~ 01:01, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to start adding synopses and any other information I can fill in; I've just started watching the series recently, and am only up to Episode 6, Clefairy and the Moon Stone, for which I just finished the synopsis. -- DrGaellon (talk | contribs) 19:20, 8 August 2007 (UTC)


I just had an idea... maybe a Quotes section should be added to episode articles, split into subsection for English and Japanese? Sort of like what Pokemopolis has for their episode guides, except with quotes that are significant for any reason, not just for dodginess. --Pie ~ 16:52, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Pokemon anime section

I would also like to help with this. I could do a Pokemon featured in this episode and battles section. You know like a list of Pokemon used in the episode and the moves and pokemon used in various battles. Unsigned comment by Slyraccoon007

We already have a list of the Pokémon in the episode. --FabuVinny T-C-S 21:46, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Well I guess I could do the battles and maybe some synopsises. By slyraccoon007 Could you send me a to do list aswell.

Timeline of events notice

See the template I added to episode 1. Yes, this is partially to give the users more exposure to that article, since I noticed only a few articles link to it when it's relevant to pretty much all anime articles. Anyway, thoughts or comments on the template, before I add it to more articles and find that everyone hates it or something? --Pie ~ 19:01, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, I definitely don't hate it, but do you think it's worth the time to put it in on all the articles? The important events for that particular episode are listed there, where they should be. Is it necessary to see all the other events too? --Greengiant 19:45, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, the idea is that if someone wants the information of the major events of many different episodes, but doesn't know about the timeline, that's the section they'll be looking in for all episode articles. --Pie ~ 22:54, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Shortcut Templates

I created a couple of templates to make typing synopses easier:

  • {{AP|Pokémon}} creates a link to Ash's Pokémon, but only shows the Pokémon's name: [[Ash's Pokémon|Pokémon]]
  • {{BrockP|Pokémon}} does the same thing for Brock
  • {{MistyP|Pokémon}} does the same thing for Misty
  • {{TP|Trainer|Pokémon}} does the same thing for any trainer: [[Trainer's Pokémon|Pokémon]]
  • {{MTR}} is a shortcut to [[Meowth (Team Rocket)|Meowth]]: Meowth

I generally prefer to subst: shortcut templates like these; that way, the final code saved in the wiki is unambiguous.

I think this Project needs to include more articles.

Well, there is no project that has goal on the anime characters, (like Ash Ketchum) so I think this project should also help on the articles about the pokémon characters, and their pokémon's pages (like Ash's Charizard), that would make this project so much more useful. I can't see any reason why it should only focus on the episode articles. After all, it's Project Anime, not Project Episodes. What do you guys think about that idea? TheBlazikenMaster 15:51, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Anime Definitions

Should we add anime definitions of Pokémon and moves? I mean the Pokédex has identifyed almost every Pokémon and in some epiosdes Brock or someone else identifyed moves. --Ryguy.

I got an idea for the character pages.

Attack used should also include the first use of the move. I will make a fake profile for "Darklord's Rayquaza" just to give you an example:

Moves used

First used: The hell of heaven in that episode Darklord noticed that he didn't need a helicopter and could just use Rayquaza to fly.

First used: Strong training is a good one It trained for 2 episodes, in this one he get's it when he beats the class.

First used: Wow, that's fast Rayquaza noticed it can go so fast, in that episode the Rayquaza went extremely fast after Felk's Fearow.

Back to the discussion

So what do you guys think? Would that work? TheBlazikenMaster 22:49, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Great idea!!! Misty-may-dawn rulz 08:15, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

How to help

HI!I'd like to help, how can I?--Spr RS May.pngHaruka uzumaki 32px 01:03, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Can I help too?--Dawnfan47 20:16, 8 December 2007 (UTC)File:Spr 3e 370.gif

I like to help too. I've already wrote the synopsis for some episodes. File:Ani448MS.gifJmathFile:Ani447MS.gifTalkFile:Ani448MS.gif 20:27, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Broadcast date

Don't you think that placing the broadcasted date in the first paragraph is kind of redundant because in the infobox of each episode, it says it right under the picture Moldy orange

May we use the synopsis provided by Serebii? Misty-may-dawn rulz 08:18, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

No, because that would be copying someone else's hard work. TheBlazikenMaster 10:58, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
But most of the pages have exactly the same synopsis as in Serebii, especially the movies! If you don't believe me, then compare the two for yourself. :Misty-May-Dawn rulz 06:19, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Then they should be rewritten, I have noticed more than once synopsis copied from somewhere else being removed from here. Just because most articles have something doesn't make it right. Likewise, just because many people believe something is right doesn't make it so.TheBlazikenMaster 07:55, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
I do believe you, but I also know that copying someone else's work without permission is not alright. That's exactly why there is an FBI warning on each DVD. TheBlazikenMaster 08:02, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
ok, ok, I understand... :Misty-May-Dawn rulz 10:02, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Some of the summaries on this site were given to both Bulbapedia and Serebii to use. (For example, the summaries Altomare Latios did around the Master Quest era. The movie ones also fall under this, though they are far too large for our purposes.) However, we must not take any other synopsis without the writer's permission and Serebii does put a disclaimer to not copy from his site. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 09:57, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I promised you all that I am not going to copy Serebii's synopsis. I mean to keep my promise, so don't worry. Misty-May-Dawn rulz 10:07, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I just wanted to make sure the situation was clear for everyone, especially concerning the ones that are the same. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 10:12, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Project Anime

I would like to sign up for this project please, and on the main article it said I should enquire on the talk page. Jen The Ren 17:27, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
