I became an admin? When?! --Maxim 17:37, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

I read somthing about this in your user page... anyways, my English isn't the best. Hey, you're an admin for me! *trying to flatter the elder member* Hehe. See you, man. ;) |) u |( e 17:42, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Heh heh, my user page is actually a (outdated) protest against one of the decisions made by admins. I'm a long time member of Bulbapedia, indeed. But I don't happen to be particularly liked by hereby admins. But it feels nice to be respected :P. --Maxim 17:46, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Manga issues

Hi. I didn't realize that you and FinnishPokefan had gone back and forth, so I came here to talk to you so as to not make it an edit war. ^-^ You said that you were confused about some things, and hopefully I can help you out.

  • You pointed out Silver's Rhydon, but it used it under Green's ownership. While that is true, Silver is now the owner of it, and it evolved under his ownership. The point is, Silver is now Rhydon's owner, and the current owner is what we go by. This is the case for all traded Pokemon, like Buizel and Chimchar. It just makes it easier that way. As for when Emerald borrowed Crys's Pokemon, he was just simply borrowing them, and gave them back after he was done, so they weren't his to begin with.
  • Another point is nicknames. Like Pokemon, human nicknames should be added, since that's what they like to go by. We should call Red Saur 'Red's Venusaur', because it has a name, so it's the same with the humans; Crystal likes to be called Crys, and Diamond likes to be called Dia. While it is true that it isn't what their articles are named, the articles would be incorrect if they weren't called by their full names.
  • One last one is sorting them by release dates. Where did you hear that from, if I may ask? I've heard the correct way to assort them is in Alphabetical order.

Anyways, I hope I answered all your questions and lifted your confusion. Sorry for all the confusion and reverting. XD Littlmiget123 16:24, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I hate edit wars.
  • If this is how things go here, it's okay. And about Shedinja being Crystal's, I know this. Actually, I'm the one who made the section in her article.
  • I remember I used Dia once in an article, and an Admin replaced it for Diamond, stating this is BP's terminology. In Crystal (Adventures), Crys is only used when mentioned as her nickname, never to refer to the character. But once again, if this is how things go here, it's okay.
  • I did it based on the Pokémon manga article. It's annoying to look at many short mangas to find the more everlasting ones (which are probably the most searched). But if this seems counter-productive, please undo it.
Thank you for your help, Littlmiget123. |) u |( e ® 16:38, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

In the In the

Sorry for stepping on your toes on Wolfy's talk page, but you are correct. We do not need "In the" added to each sub-section. If you see those around, please remove them. -- MAGNEDETH 19:43, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

It's okay. Now many pages are protected due to speculation crackdown but, when it's over, I'll remove the ones I see to avoid redundancy. |) u |( e ® 20:35, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Variant Pokémon

Sorry if I came across as upset. You are being very helpful, I just didn't like a lot of what you changed. I think it's better to leave empty sections so people know to add the text than move them to a place where they have none. --SnorlaxMonster 07:17, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

I understand. Next time I have another "big change" in mind, I'll suggest it in the article's talk page. |) u |( e ® 02:40, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! ----Pokemaster97 02:29, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

If it's prohibited, why did you remove my answer above? And you're welcome. |) u |( e ® 02:40, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
Because in order for the timestamp on the welcome template to be correct, your edit had to be undone. The undo button does not allow you to undo half or a little bit of an edit. --Pokemaster97 02:46, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
I don't know how you set your preferences, but when I undo an edit it opens the edit windown, so it's virtually possible to undo only part of it. |) u |( e ® 02:48, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
I guess I didn't word that the way I wanted to. If I undid a part of your edit besides the welcome you removed it was not intentional. I was only intending to undo the removal of the welcome box.--Pokemaster97 02:55, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
Okay, then. |) u |( e ® 02:57, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

TCG Series

Series is a proper term for the TCG. Please don't decapitalize them again. MaverickNate 02:27, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

I saw both capitalized and non-capitalized terms in the same page, don't blame me. From now on, I won't capitalize it again. |) u |( e ® 17:17, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
  • decapitalize |) u |( e ® 17:19, 25 July 2012 (UTC)


Do you have a source to back it up? AdynizWanna talk? 19:44, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Look at her talk page. |) u |( e ® 20:07, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Owner of Horsea dilemma

I don't want to get into an edit war (nor is it allowed) so I'll tell you the "facts" on this page. Lance was never seen with a Horsea or any of its evolved forms in the manga. Lance's main Pokemon is Dragonite and Clair's is Kingdra so it would make perfect sense for them to have their basic forms as children. Kusaka isn't the kind of writer to showcase a Pokemon in a flashback that was never owned by a trainer in any way in present time. Finally, Horsea being on Lance's side doesn't mean that it belongs to him. Based on appearance, Lance is commanding the Dratini since he's looking at it and he's gesturing at it indicating that he's commanding it and vice-versa for Clair. All those facts are indicating that the Horsea doesn't belong to Lance. Arceus101 (talk) 21:16, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
