Hey

Isn't it a bit embarrassing that the main help page links to two non-existant project pages? I'd consider either removing the links completely or starting the articles, no matter how little text there'd be. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 16:26, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Bump. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 22:57, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
If you're not willing to answer or edit those links out yourselves, please at least make it available for editing. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:46, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Know how many edits are made a day in the RC? Near 500. We can't respond on every talk page... TTEchidna 00:16, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah... I was only trying to make the odds higher by bumping it, but now as I've got my opinion through, I can't do anything but thank you. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 00:50, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I need help

Where's the list of Pokemon in the TCG with two types? TorchicBlaziken (talkedits) 23:17, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Not seeing some images

343kxg3.jpg

This keep happening to me and when I click on the link I get

"No file by this name exists, you can upload it." Not just this page but many as well...

If any one can help I'd be grateful. --Riggy(>0.0)> 04:06, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

That, er, means that the file doesn't exist and you can upload it. ~ overgrownsol 04:11, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Odd when I upload said image it state there is a file by that name so I wonder how is there a PNG if it does not or has never existed? AND the file that the file doesn't exist shows up in archive? Can you explain this to me...--Riggy(>0.0)> 04:22, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
It means that no one's had a chance to upload it yet. That happens with the sprites. TTEchidna 04:44, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
But when I check it, the sprites do exist and then when I try to upload a replacement I still can not see the sprite and I find there is a sprite for it already uploaded. It's not showing up for me.--Riggy(>0.0)> 06:22, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm not seeing any sprites at those filenames on the wiki at all. TTEchidna 06:29, 7 March 2009 (UTC)


http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_4p_065_m.png it said it's a duplicate of http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:065.png which is just one of the sprites not showing. If indeed this sprite is the missing Platinum sprite for Alakazam. If it exists why does it and others not show up on the page? and if as you say it was not uploaded then why is there it's sprite in that link. I'm very confused why I'm not seeing these images. --Riggy(>0.0)> 06:36, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

TTEchidna your even using said sprite on your page --Riggy(>0.0)> 06:38, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
You might have to make a null edit to the page with the sprite table in question to get the image to show up. A "null edit" is simply going into the editing phase, changing absolutely nothing, and hitting "Save page". It won't show up in the recent changes, but it works to refresh images and the like. (Edits that do show up in the recent changes also work to refresh images.) --Shiningpikablu252 15:14, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
I dunno what's wrong I did like you said but the images in question still do not show. On the other hand the sprite I uplaoded is now showing up on the page. --Riggy (>0.0)> 22:23, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Help!

I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, but is there a list of all the Pokémon that can be received by trading?--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 12:15, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Trade and List of in-game trades--FF(editstalk) 12:28, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much indeed, could you help with finding lists of Pokémon that can be caught by fishing and surfing?--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 18:24, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Um.... you were told before. Go look for yourself. Sure, it'll take some time, but this isn't a library and I'm not a librarian. — THE TROM — 08:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Relearning move

If you have a Victreebel and you want it to relearn Acid, but you're dealing with before Generation 3, is this possible?--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 15:29, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

This would be better answered by the simple questions thread on the forums. There is a way to relearn moves in Gen I and II: Stadium 2. But only if you beat the Elite Four and Champion in the GLC and use each one of your six Pokémon in a battle (they don't have to be sent out, just selected). TTEchidna 20:44, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
The problem is, Acid's only in the Weepinbell's moveset not in Victreebell's. Would it still register if I were to do the selfsame thing on Pokémon Stadium 1?--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 09:41, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Then, no. If it isn't in the learnset it can't be relearned. I can't answer for Stadium, but as TTE said this kind of thing is best suited for the Bulbagarden forums. This is a help page about the wiki, not about how to beat your game. — THE TROM — 09:46, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I'll erect a thread there, then.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 16:43, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Viewing the recent changes

When I try to view the recent changes, it comes up with this, and why this message is automatically justified I am at a loss to: File:Screendump.png Its still like that in spite of the fact that I edited this page.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 15:22, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Server fail. 504 pops up when loading fails, 503 says hello when saving fails. The last time it happened, they were dumping all the data from our server onto another, or something along those lines, so the whole site was locked down. It's no biggie. If you see it, don't constantly hit refresh. That can make any problems worse. — THE TROM — 09:09, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
So we're currently under construction, are we?--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 09:43, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, hence images suck atm. Look around, it's on half the talk pages. — THE TROM — 09:46, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Heh. I still get it now.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 16:48, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
