Hi Clarky13, how did you know that Brendan/May (as the player) was originally from Olivine City, before moving to Littleroot Town in Hoenn? There isn't any information about that when I played Pokemon Emerald, and I searched Olivine City in Pokemon HeartGold, and there isn't any information about that there either? Can you tell me where did you get that information? Thanks. [[User:Agent5514|Agent5514]] ([[User talk:Agent5514|talk]]) 06:04, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

:Interesting. I knew that they were originally from Johto, but I'm not sure about Olivine City. I did a bit of research, and all I could find is this [| Youtube video], but I'm not quite sure of the source... Norman's bio.. cord?

Epic music

Don't worry I found it myself. You can't touch... your page. It's been a pleasure doing business with you. —darklordtrom 10:22, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Jerk. Nuff said.--Clarky13 10:33, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
I know you love me really. Also, I had first comment. *pwnsome* Er, what was that about a talk page policy? *runs* —darklordtrom 10:35, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
*Grabs Trom by ears* Yeah, that's right, Mr. Admin.--Clarky13 10:51, 22 January 2010 (UTC)


Welcome to the club, Clarky. Now you have new toys to play with. Oh, and we like the concept of your help page. Keep working on it. --electAbuzzzz 00:18, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Wow, congrats Clarky.--ForceFire 03:16, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
Owwww, look at those shiny red examination marks, I'm in heaven.--Clarky13 03:19, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't get you

Why did you revert me and bring back this nosense chaos in Viridian Forest? That passage is constantly repeating itself and worded TERRIBLY. --Maxim 08:07, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Man, your mean. Your rewording may have cleaned it up a bit, however, you have lost some significant information. So if you want to keep your description can you please add back the missing information.--Clarky13 09:06, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
I didn't lose anything. Aside from that "Viridian Forest was cut down" crap, which is just false conclusion made by fans. NPCs in GSC still mention "Viridian Forest", meaning that it did exist but not as a standalone dungeon. Aside from that, I just made the passage more smooth and deleted unneccessary repeatings. --Maxim 09:38, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Ah, that's what you meant. I indeed ignored the sentence because it said that "In Generation II, the forest is back with Pokemon similar to Yellow". II, not IV. That's why that sequence made no sense to me. Also, those "similar Pokemon" is just Pidgeotto, in fact. --Maxim 09:50, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
And Pikachu. Anyway, I hope you've do your ranting and getting all angsty with me.--Clarky13 09:53, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Gee, THAT wasn't nice. I'm here just to correct Bulbapedia's error and mistakes (which are a plenty of) and doing some more serious contributions at times. My purpose is not to be an ass to people. I'm doing what this Pedia needs. There's no time to role play an angel or someone who I'm not. It's Bulbapedia, not Bulbatheatre. Mistakes and confusing errors have to be corrected. --Maxim 10:04, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
You realize I'm joking.--Clarky13 13:44, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Route 27 edits

Sorry to rewrite your edit but at least in my game you cannot fly to Johto from Route 27. Tyagohexagon 20:52, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Ah, sorry. I mixed Route 27 up for Route 26. Plus, it wasn't my information that I put there, I was just rewriting someone elses edit. BTW, put your comments at the bottom of the page. Thank you.--Clarky13 13:13, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Because you run the Trainer Class bit...:V

I don't feel like I could make all executive decisions for the project, have a look at this. It's nothing big, I think we could have a sort of intro of sorts, with some modding, for the Trainer Classes, because I think they are totally boring could stand to use something to detail them more. Also, if you can sometime in the near future, get on AIM to discuss this more...--Psyライダー 00:46, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Oh wow, Psy. That's definitely an approval from me. I was thinking of do a template for the Trainer Class, but this is really amazing.--Clarky13 13:20, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Clarky, it did it all by myself with some help from CP and TTE. :D...It's not gonna really replace anything, it's just gonna be sort of like an intro basically...But glad you like it and TTE said he's gonna make some mods to it...sometime or something...IDK...But anyways, hopefully it can be added like ASANow or soon....--Psyライダー 20:10, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
May I also suggest that you guys turn the TCspritebox into a template? I can help... maybe... if I have time... shouldn't be hard though. *commits to stuff he hasn't got time for... again*darklordtrom 21:00, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
What's that Trom? You want to help? Thanks for volunteering. Jerk Love you.--Clarky13 22:05, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Crown City

How does this look?--immewnitythemew 15:18, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Wonderful, but is there any more information on it?--Clarky13 02:02, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I don't know. I haven't seen the movie. Nor has most people. Maybe move it now and protect it for a week to avoid speculation? The movie airs July 10, btw.--immewnitythemew 20:24, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

A request for assistance

Hi there Clarky13. I'd like to ask for your assistance in a small matter. Myself and CuboneKing have been, through the last few months, changing grammar on some articles, changing "based off of" to "based on", "fell off of" to "fell off" and so on. Together we have managed to correct over 200 articles (with permission from TTEchidna), but there is one left. In the "Pokémon World" article there are two instances of "based off of" and as this is a featured article neither myself or CuboneKing have the authority to change it. I was wondering if I could trouble you to help us out and change it for us? I can locate where the two instances are to make it easier for you if you so wish.

Thank you--Burjojo 20:05, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Done and done--Clarky13 06:28, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
You legend! Thanks! --Burjojo 17:17, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't sure where to ask this and I'm sincerely sorry if this is the wrong spot but I do not have permission to edit the Legendary Pokemon page, however it needs a very small edit. Before it goes into detail on the various Legendary Pokemon, it says "Of the 649 Pokemon... 37 are legendary" when the 37 should be 47. I was hoping someone with permission to edit that could do so. Thank you very much if you can do so! --Lunar Cloud 07:47, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Done.--Clarky13 07:58, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon locations on routes, towns etc

Hey Clarky, as you're the leader of Project Locations, I'd thought I'd let you know that I made a new Pokémon locations template, because the old one is a bit out-of-date. it uses the same three parts as the item one. I hope you like it =D たかはり 07:28, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Its looks great! Address this to TTE. He's the one doing the templates around here.--Clarky13 06:47, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

File edits

Sorry if I'm asking the wrong person, so please redirect me if I am, but how can I change an image file. I have the correct version of the shiny Seaking Emerald sprite and I don't know how to change it. --Foorganders 09:44, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

You shouldn't be changing the file name, they're named that way for a reason. Did you try uploading over the file? If you can't, it might be because you're a new user, try making some edits to the Archives. Jellotalk 10:13, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
I'm not trying to change the file name, and I couldn't upload over the file. I'll presume that I need to make more edits. Also, for some reason the file is fixed, and it has my name on the file uploader, so I presume you fixed it for me. --Foorganders 13:13, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I just deleted the old one and moved yours to the correct name. Keep making more edits, you should eventually be able to upload over files. Jellotalk 13:22, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for that.--Foorganders 18:50, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Your wonderful userspace

I was going through it to see what I can put on my template, and I noticed a few things that were incorporated, and I deleted those pages. I just wanted to make sure you didn't mind, because I can always restore anything. MaverickNate 10:33, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, yes. Of course. I would of done, it but I'm very busy with school work.--Clarky13 05:34, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Project Idea

Hello, i would like to run my idea for a Project past you. The basic idea of it is to document all side quests in the series, and write walkthroughs for them. This includes anything that is not part of the story for any of the games. For example, the abandoned ship in Generation III. Thanks The doctor9 08:40, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, sounds like something we could develop on. Could you give me a better example?--Clarky13 11:40, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
The battle fronteer. Giving a walkthrough on how to beat each fronteer brain, and how to get to the fronteer brains in the first place. Another example could be the Island just off the coast of Sinnoh, only accessable after the elite four have been defeated, or the Sevii islands. The doctor9 00:53, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, Bulbapedia isn't a walkthrough, its a Pokémon encyclopedia, but there is a project dedicated to walkthroughs, which is run by KCorp4000. So talk to him about it.--Clarky13 01:27, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Featured Stub

The featured stub on the page for project locations is out of date due to the fact that it simply isn't a stub anymore.--RegiRuler 12:26, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

I'll take it off when there is a Geography section added to it.--Clarky13 21:09, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Can you show me an example of one?--RegiRuler 22:23, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Here try, this.--Clarky13 04:21, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Encounter mechanics

I saw you added the encounter mechanics to the Tall grass page. I was wondering if the mechanics are the same for when you surf on water or go fishing. Thanks. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:05, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

I think surfing is the same, but fishing is different.--Clarky13 02:57, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Cities and Towns

Should the Pokémon Center and PokéMart be part of the "Places of Interest"? I want to ask this to be clear. --Ruixiang95 00:44, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

No, Pokémon Centers and PokéMarts are common buildings that are in most towns and cities.--Clarky13 04:54, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

About Project Cities and Towns

The project is basically dead. Everything is pretty much outdated, especially the to-do list. You're the leader, shouldn't you be managing the project on an almost daily basis? I don't mean to question your authority, but it boggles my brain.--Han Ji-Wan 06:36, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

I've been very busy at the moment. When I get the time I'll update the page. Thankyou.--Clarky13 08:14, 17 January 2011 (UTC)


I asked the same question to MAGNEDETH. Since you're the leader of the projects, I figured I should ask you the same thing, since you might know the reason or can fix the problem. In the box "Regions in the Pokemon World", why is Orre listed under the "Main series"? It should be under "Side games"... --Han Ji-Wan 17:40, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

I was going to ask you this question. But, I seem to have already asked you this before. You have not given me your opinion. There's a thread in the Bulbawiki Forum, you can put down your thoughts. Since you're the leader of Project Locations, you should have the final say once and for all. :] --Han Ji-Wan 05:01, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

We gots us some vandals!

Remocari and Vyrdese are spambots/vandals creating spampages here and here that need to be blocked and the pages deleted. --JediKnightDTV 18:26, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Taken care of. Werdnae (talk) 20:02, 30 January 2011 (UTC)


Well, DennouZenshou changed all of "In other languages" to "Names" for all the cities. Do you think the change is proper? Should it be "In other languages" to be consistent with other pages, like the Pokemon...--Han Ji-Wan 06:46, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

No, it should be "In other languages". I'll have a word with him soon.--Clarky13 07:00, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
If we have "In other languages" section, what happens to English and Japanese names? I find it totally pointless to explain their etymologies in a different place. And location articles don't have to be consistent with species articles.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 14:18, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
The "In other languages" section for Pokémon only includes German, French, Chinese, Korean and some other languages that isn't Japanese or English. I think "Names" would make more sense since those two languages aren't "others". (Besides the pages of character also use "Names").--神智の超龍對話」 15:43, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I will put it up to a vote here.--Clarky13 02:17, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Hey Clarky13! I feel like it's unfair to post it under the Project Cities and Towns, because no one really pays attention. Don't you think it'd be easier to create a poll on the forums? I could do it, if you'd like me to. --Han Ji-Wan 04:41, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
Do you object to this change?--Clarky13 08:24, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
Of course I do! :] --Han Ji-Wan 00:11, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Very well then.--Clarky13 02:56, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Yo yo yiggity yo

Now that I've clearly established what I came here to discuss with you in the subject line, onto the topic at hand. This page falls under your domain of Locations, as well as my self proclaimed domain of all that is Colosseum and XD. So, this page also has two sections in it, the Pyrite Building and Pyrite Cave. Because of this, there are four sets of trainers that need to be contained in them both. Now I have two sets of them in my Sandbox, in addition to the two sets that are already there, which are incomplete. However, when I went to add them and they broke the page due to a template overload. D8!. And that was without completing the set that was already there. So should we split the pages in half, as Pyrite Cave and Pyrite Building/Miror B.'s Hideout, or what? Cheers~ --P S Yライダー 00:37, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Nevermind, we got it. D; --P S Yライダー 04:47, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Land Area/Size

Hey! I was wondering if I could add a new sub-section to include land area. It is real simple. All you have to do is count the steps horizontally and vertically. This could go next to the demographics section. Do you think it's a good idea? --Han Ji-Wan 05:24, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Why would we need that for?--Clarky13 05:55, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Same reason as the demographics. Also, some people claim that Castelia City is the largest city by land area. I think we should calculate it, rather than assume it's the biggest. --Han Ji-Wan 06:00, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't think this is an important piece of information. For one, we are looking at the game from a canon point of view, so demographics is an important in-game statistic. Besides I'm pretty sure Castelia City is the largest city by land area, if you don't believe this, count it for yourself.--Clarky13 06:17, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

New English name confirmed

Zebstrika (japanese: zeburaika) Don't believe me? It comes from the official website: the last paragraph shows the name- here's the link. [1]. Thanks! - unsigned comment from TheTheDragon14 (talkcontribs)

Yes, but why are you telling me this? And please sign your comments.--Clarky13 11:49, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Sinnoh maps

Hi Clarky,
I've noticed that Bulbapedia's mapping of Sinnoh is at best sort of washed out, and at worst non-existent. I'm able to remedy this, if you'd like it. My group have mapped the entirety of Sinnoh's exterior, and a portion of its interior, and basically we were wondering if you'd want the maps? They're all done to a high quality (and have also been submitted to, and are from Platinum. They contain the maps as seen in-game, complete with trainers and items, if that's alright? Sadly we don't have any "clean" versions, since to do so would take longer than we wanted to spend. The mapping has been done by myself and (to be fair, mostly) another guy, who has since left, but consented to his stuff going up on here. So do you mind if I replace the current Sinnoh maps with my crop? If you want to see them, they can be found at this link.

Hope to be of service, CDRom 03:15, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm head of the Bulbagarden Archives and I've done some mapping before as well. We would love it if you could upload these maps, so please feel free to do that anytime. Jellotalk 03:24, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, please! This will be fantastic! Thank you very much.--Clarky13 10:01, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Edit Request

Hi Clarky13 I am going throuth the Pokémon Ranger Articles and I wanted add to murph's page that he had a slowpoke (in picture format, like in Spenser's) But I am not too sure on how to do it. And I thought if anyone could do it it was the CharDex Project leader. I thank you or anyone else if they did very much. Truthseeker4449 19:56, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Anime Exclusives Locations

Each main series region article has an incomplete list of anime exclusive locations. Not many people are trying to complete them so since your project leader, can you encourage people to try to complete them. ZMT123 01:20, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

I hope I'm not butting in, but I thought it'd be convenient for all of us to communicate here. I think that we need to come up with a way to somehow incorporate the anime-exclusive locations into the "insert-region" article without it stretching the article. For example, take a look at the Kanto article's anime-exclusive locations section. You can see that it takes up a good chunk of the article. I think we should discuss how to make it look.. cleaner and tidier. You guys get what I'm saying? I think it'd be a cool idea to create a chart and only include the location names and picture of the locations. It's simply a suggestion, do you guys have a better idea? Han Ji-Wan 06:01, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi, kids. I'm on hiatus but I'm going to jump in and help. Now, I'm not one of those big city lawyers, but it seems to me we have a problem called "quantity over quality". You might of heard of it. And I read a very flavourful article by a good friend of mine, which you can read right here. Wow, look at that, I still remember how to wiki-code. Now, back to business. Why, on the Kanto page, do we have so many maps of Kanto? Yes, they should be in the article, but, no, they shouldn't be stuck there to the right. Now, if you look at my good friend, the Johto article. Ah, bliss. Follow my lead, wink, wink. Wow, look how much I'm writing, finally my exams are doing me good. Back on topic. Now, I'm looking at the history of these articles, and it seems you guys have the knowledge to complete the list. And as for the bulkiness problem, I believe it was the picture that was causing the problem in the first place. Get rid of the picture, and maybe the description in the anime-exclusive locations, and badda-boom, problem solved. And don't forget, keep up the good work. --Clarky13 08:05, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Project Locations: Mystery Dungeons

Okay! Now I know how this works. (spent 5 minutes figuring how to add a new topic into your talk page). Okay, On most of the mystery dungeons, they are all stubs. I don't get it, some have the same info, but are not stubs, while the others aren't. What does a mystery dungeon need to be non-stub?Chocos0 22:19, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Generally stubs are pages with insufficient information and is able to be expanded. It's possible that someone has added information and forgot to remove the stub tag. What pages were you looking at?--Clarky13 03:19, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
I was looking at Right and Left cave paths, from the special episode "Here comes team charm". I'm not entirely sure what is needed there. I've seen some item lists, but some without, and some of those without item lists have no stub marking. (I created Left Cave Path, but since it's with the same information as it's counterpart Right Cave Path, I guess it's still a stub). Oh, and by the way, if I need to add levels to the list of pokemon in the dungeon, I'm not sure how I can find that out. They are un-recruitable, and if it needs some kind of hacking magic thingy, that's impossible for me. Chocos0 04:48, 21 December 2011 (UTC)


I know this has been discussed so much and I don't mean to bother you, but why is Orre considered a main-series region? It does not have it's own generation, thus not having new pokemon, the games it's in are not even supposed to be in the main-series, it is not relevant to the actual main-series games, and the list goes on and on. It should be listed under side-series. Just because the games are RPG's similar to the main-series, it does not automatically make it main- series. By the way, in the regions template, Orre is under side-series. ZMT123 04:47, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Never mind. ZMT123 03:50, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Terrian Types/Biomes/Landforms

Hello, I recently joined the wiki and this project, and was wondering if we could expand the pages of specific groups of locations, including Terrain Types, Landforms, or Biomes. For example, the only good article we have of this is Desert and Cave, while locations such as Volcano, Mountain, Forest, Grassland, Ocean, Snow, and Marshes are left in the dust as disumbagation pages. I would like to suggest in order to improve quality and provide more information to our users that we begin to turn these pages into full fledged articles, similar to the Desert article. Thoughts? XXSuperXXNintendoXx 22:47, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I have absolutely no objection to this idea. In fact, I think it's excellent. Just remember, quality over quantity. Information over lists. I think you got it.--Clarky13 02:45, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Composite images of Sinnoh routes

Many Sinnoh route articles have "fan-made" composite pictures instead of legit screenshots from the games, for example Sinnoh Route 206. A while back, I put the unsatisfactory picture template on those articles, because I though they were unsatisfactory. User:Werdnae reverted my edits and told me that composite pictures are allowed. Now, User:Haxorus has put back the unsatisfactory picture template on those articles because he said "the images are not from the authentic game". I would like to know if composites are unsatisfactory or not. ZMT123 00:56, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

The composite images are fine as placeholders and do not need to be tagged as bad. Most, if not all, of the tags have been removed. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 02:01, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Criteria for Towns & Cities

Hi, I just want to ask about something to do with Cities and Towns since you're the project leader. I placed this on the discussions page of White Forest last year and got zero response so I thought that I could come to this page instead.

So I was wondering why White Forest is not listed under Cities and Towns? Just because its called "White Forest" doesn't mean that it should be automatically ruled out as a city or town. It's pretty much like a town/village on its own with a Mayor, two houses plus it has a Pokemon Center as well. I think that "White Forest" is like a name for the town. Not literally a complete forest.

Also why is Pokémon League (Unova) listed under Cities and Towns? It may only have 1 Pokemon Center and the Pokemon League building but why did it qualify to be in Cities and Towns? I think that it should be under Landmarks. Just asking. Blueknightex 12:17, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Please respond. Its not just about the White Forest article. I also want to ask if there are any 'criteria' in this site about a place being qualified as a city/town.Blueknightex 09:55, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay, I was busy sorting out B2W2 stuff. As for the White Forest conundrum, there are arguments on both sides and it leads to whole lot of revert wars. Would you be able to create a subpage with the city/towns template and updated information, I'll review it and then we can transfer it over together. There is no criteria because the projects were created in a time where there was a definitive line between city/town and location and the distinctions were obvious. But, now that the games have 'evolved', I think we will have to create a criteria or distinction between city/town and location. --Clarky13 00:39, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok I will see what I can do. I'll try and create a subpage. It will probably take some time since I'm still new to the site but I'll contact you once I'm done. Thank you so much for replying. Blueknightex 07:21, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

B2W2 pages

A few users have made pages for Black 2 White 2 content. Just make sure to move them if they have enough info on it. One in particular being User:S2daam/Hiougi City. There's also User:S2daam/Homika, User:S2daam/Shizui, User:Chomper4/Akuroma, and User:Jo The Marten/White 2 Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 14:02, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Shizui seemed alright to mainspace. I saw you had mainspaced Homika. They seemed kind of similar in content. Akuroma and female protagonist still need a bit of work.--Clarky13 02:50, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Well yeah. The female protag. doesn't even have a name yet. :P Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:51, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
All in due time, my friend.--Clarky13 02:54, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Name Rater Trivia

Excuse me, but DJWolfy pointed me over here (I am blank on how to link names and stuff...) regarding an issue with an edit I made to the "Name Rater" trivia. A friend made me a Pokémon using a generator called PokéGen with my player's name and ID number. After I recieved it from PokéGTS I noticed the Pokémon was nicknamed it's regular name instead of my favored name, so I tried to take it to the Name Rater. He allowed me to change the name, yet the game still treated it's EXP distribution like it was a traded Pokémon. This applied to both HG/SS and Black/White I added the trivia and it was undone, so I was told to clarify it with you. I would be very appreciative if you would allow my trivia to be added. Thank you. SnivyIzTehBomb 20:45, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Renaming a Pokemon only requires that the OT and ID are the same, while the experience boost requires the OT, ID or Secret ID to be different. Clearly the generator your friend got you is not setting the Secret ID to match yours. Thus you're experiencing the effects of having a differnt Secret ID. Werdnae (talk) 21:23, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
So therefore, it is not trivia? Or does the trivia belong somewhere else, like on the ID Number page? The actual event was not the problem, the undoing of my edit to the trivia was. SnivyIzTehBomb 21:15, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
This thing would be better in Cheating, but you would probably have to discuss this with Umeko, head of Project Games. Character articles should only contain legitimate in-universe information. Hacks shouldn't be in there, even if it is in the trivia section.--Clarky13 05:55, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

A question regarding anime and manga counterparts

Why do Pokémon Adventures characters have got their anime counterparts named and their debuts listed in their infoboxes, and Adventures characters aren't listed in anime characters infoboxes? Plus why don't we list the debuts for important manga characters on their infoboxes like we do with anime characters? Ariano (talk) 18:54, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

An overworld game sprite for you :)

Good morning Clarky13,

I was looking for the overworld sprite of the 'Doctor', but I couldn't find one on Bulbapedia. I snagged a screencap from Serebii and edited out the character. I would like to submit it, however I have no idea how, as such, may I send it to you for the 'Doctor' page?

Thanks a bunch! Have a lovely day, and I hope you're enjoying Black or White, one or two, - Maryanna (Shmoo92 (talk) 15:40, 12 October 2012 (UTC))

Serebii has asked us not to use his information or images. We will not use that a sprite taken from him. Werdnae (talk) 19:43, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Mt. Chimney Trivia

I commented on this on the Mt. Chimney talk page, but I think it will be a while before anybody responds. One of the trivia points says that the volcanic ash must blow to Verdanturf town because it is to the southwest of Mount Chimney. I took it out, then re-added it because I was not sure. Isn't the Hoenn region on its side and Verdanturf is to the northwest of Mt. Chimney? I may be completely wrong. Aggron989 (talk) 00:51, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

The top side of the map of Hoenn is facing north. I guess its assumed, you know, conventionally. The real world island Kyushu has been rotated 90° counterclockwise to create Hoenn. Even if the ash were to travel southwest, it seems pretty unlikely to reach Verdanturf Town, it would first have to pass Lavaridge Town.--Clarky13 05:17, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I just realized that I made a mistake. The trivia above this one states that the flowers in the Hoenn region are indeed blowing to the southwest. I didn't see that at first, so I think I screwed up and the trivia is correct. Aggron989 (talk) 15:10, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Puzzle Village

I just created a page about Puzzle Village. Do you want me to add it to Project Cities and Towns? AGGRON989 23:56, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Jumping in here - I added it to Project Sidegames as its only appearance is in a side game. --ZestyCactus 23:59, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Steven Stone steel type

Hi Clarky13, Why is Steven considered a steel type master? In his champion and Meteor Falls battle, he used an equal amount of rock type pokemon, and there were even more rock types than steel types in his PWT battle. The only time he has an all steel type team was his tag battle with the player in Pokemon Emerald. I am a bit confused about this issue so could you please explain to me why he is a steel type master? Thanks. Agent5514 (talk) 10:10, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Pardon for intruding, but Steven says so himself, which is the only proof necessary. His Rock types are simply to reflect his interest in stones. On top of his own admission, he also gives away two Beldum (one even traded for another Steel type) and the TM Steel Wing. If Rock types were really his forte, he'd be giving away far rockier things and Metagross wouldn't be his in-game ace. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 11:05, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Brendan/May from Johto

Hi Clarky13, how did you know that Brendan/May (as the player) was originally from Olivine City, before moving to Littleroot Town in Hoenn? There isn't any information about that when I played Pokemon Emerald, and I searched Olivine City in Pokemon HeartGold, and there isn't any information about that there either? Can you tell me where did you get that information? Thanks. Agent5514 (talk) 06:04, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Interesting. I knew that they were originally from Johto, but I'm not sure about Olivine City. I did a bit of research, and all I could find is this Youtube video, but I'm not quite sure of the source... Norman's bio.. cord? Check it out.--Clarky13 10:27, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
