From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

I'll post whenever I can... I really don't have much time to, truthfully. ... Of course, you're free to pick and choose from what I've already written. It's all at http://www.fakecard.com/pokemon/tcg/ ... Just be sure the text get rewritten, best take out all the Hmmm!'s and other personalized stuff, just so it seems more like an official encyclopedia piece, y'know? -nick15

I'm also useless when it comes to anything Nintendo has released since around Team Magma/Aqua, so you're gonna have to find someone else who's up to date with those sets. - nick15


If I remember right, a user is alerted when someone writes on their talk page. I was going to see if I had enough power to abuse to put this on the front page, but I don't =P

I'm considering taking down PokeFor by the end of the summer. So, here's an open offer for Bulbapedia to take its content, reword it into your own words and use it. Okay, so I allowed that before, but now there's a rush for content as it'll be gone within a month or two! Okay, so there's still the Wayback Machine (where you can still see PokeFor's wonderous pink layout!) If PokeFor has anything of use, then have fun and enjoy. If it doesn't, then please disregard this. Feel free to pass this message on to any Bulbapedia users. Even though I openly and outright detest parts of Bulbapedia, why should I care one bit about things after I'm gone? --Meowth346 07:56, 19 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I was taken aback by your decision to freeze the site, but remained optimistic about the possibility that you could change your mind. I have even been keeping track of the site's recently modified files feed, and noticed that you have updated it at least once since the freeze took place. If it is not too much to ask, I would like to know why the site cannot remain in its present state, so that you can resume maintaining it if and when you change your mind.

PokeFor does indeed have its many uses, so the question should not be if Bulbapedia would be benefited from taking its content, but rather if it deserves to do so in the first place. Before PokeFor's content can be implemented, Bulbapedia has to undergo many changes, and Bulbagarden itself has to be less geared at the anime and the Pokemon fandom. The People category is a good example, merging the creators of the games with arguably influential figures in the Pokemon community (I consider it a problem that Archaic and Serebii's pages are more detailed than those of Satoshi Tajiri and Junichi Masuda). It will be very easy to simply implement PokeFor's content as it is, but it will not blend with Bulbapedia's less-than-satisfactory quality. If those in charge decide to take up Meowth346's offer, I hope that they will also be fair enough to follow suggestions to revert Bulbapedia to a true Pokémon encyclopedia. Even if he may not admit it, Meowth346 at the very least deserves to know that his hard work has been put to good use. --Unown Lord

"so that you can resume maintaining it if and when you change your mind."; yup, you hit the nail on the head. That's why I'm dropping it. --Meowth346 11:30, 19 Jul 2005 (UTC)

As a long time visitor of the beloved Pokemon Forever Site, I often come to this site for one main reason: many Trainers data - battle e, contests, battle frontier etc. Do you mind send me all of the trainer data to me at dajason@gmail.com. Thanks for your time. I am really going to miss your great site for good... I first came here since the one warm summer of the year 2000....
