User tag suggestion

Hey ElectAbuzzzz, I dunno if you're the right person to ask, but I made this user tag because I couldn't dind one in the Template: space. I was wondering if you think it would be good enough for the mainspace (I was quite surprised when I foiund out that there wasn't alreay one: {{User:Silver Eevee/User Pokerus}}
Silver Eevee talk? contribs! 05:48, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

According to our usertag policy, five users must first be using the template, and two admins need to approve it. You can count me as one admin, now you just need to wait for 4 users and another admin. I can't mainspace it before that. --electAbuzzzz 09:38, 17 November 2009 (UTC)


Hey I made a template Called User:BrokenMotor/User Curse in the userspace and I found out that there is one just like it and since I don't have the power to delete things I was hoping you could. BrokenMotor 19:40, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Taken care of. —darklordtrom 02:12, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

FAC Guidelines

Under the new requirements, is any FAC that is currently nominated but has an incomplete template unable to become an FA, or disqualified?--Smartkidhen (So I saw this sign that said Red VelvetTeam Galatic has plans!) 13:56, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, Meowth. I'm taking care of it. --electAbuzzzz 14:01, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Lyrics to If We Only Learn

Hey, I got a source to the lyrics. I know CN cut off the song with commercials, but I recorded it straight off my TV and got the whole song. More on the talk page... also, is that the actual title of the song, "If We Only Learn" I'm not sure if that's right. Vhayes1992 19:46, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

That's awesome about the lyrics, thanks. As for the naming - no, I'm not 100% sure. I took the name off an interview that PIRN did with the artist - it's easily found on Youtube. That's not 100% reliable, but that's what we're using unless someone can prove differently by showing me the credits. --electAbuzzzz 22:28, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Welcoming users question

Hey Buzz, just wondering if non-administrator users can use the "welcome" template on a new user's talk page, as sometimes I seem to be the only one online when a new users sign up. Okay, thanks. Silver Eevee talk? contribs! 06:42, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes you can.--ForceFire 06:44, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Uh sorry

I've been busy with school at first, then I completely forgot. I'll try to do something this week and ask my friend Daru for help. He's much more into the Polish Pokémon dubbing than me. Be patient. I'll try to remember. --Maxim 17:07, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Question about manga changes

Hi there... I was wondering if you could give a little more detail about the staff discussion that lead to the change from SPECIAL to Adventures, PPP to MPJ, switched Blue and Green, etc.. Was it only related to those specific issues, or more generally to the use of English names on the English project?
Despite the timing, I’m less interested in the argument caused by my recent rash and unfortunate actions( although it would disingenuous to suggest that I haven’t considered the relationship between that and my question) and more curious about the use of in-article terminology. Specifically, I’m wondering about the use in prose, headers, and article titles of the term “Round” for the smaller subdivisions of PA Chapters. It makes sense in Japanese where most of them are named “VS[Pokémon]”, but those are not the names in the Viz translations, nor( most of) the Chuang Yi volumes. Accordingly, CY and the Viz 1st editions call them Chapters( which admittedly could be confusing), while the Viz reprints call them Adventures. I don’t think it makes sense to keep calling them rounds, especially in light of the shift towards English.
Is there any opinion or consensus from the aforementioned discussion that would have a bearing on that? I intend to bring it up in the Project discussion soon but I would like to know the hard facts about the staff’s recent decision going in. I’m asking you specifically because you gave the most helpful answer to my question there about the reasons for the sudden policy reversal. Thanks! --LaprasBoi 13:57, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Well, that's a good question... But I'll have to discuss it with CoolPikachu and our Editorial Board. Generally - yes, we're an English wiki, and we prefer English names, with the sole exception of epicodes (PS001 will not be changes to PA001. And yes, there's a reason for that, but I won't go into it now). We can't use chapters, because the story arcs are referred to as chapters in Adventures. We for ADVENTURE 001... Well, a lot of manga series use names like that for their chapters (I can think of Mezase!! Card Master and Pocket Monsters Platinum: Aim to Be Battle King!! which use "BATTLE 1", Pokémon Get da ze! which uses "GET 1"). We still prefer chapters for consistency, but again, we can't use chapters in Adventures. I'll talk to the others about it. --electAbuzzzz 14:10, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Though I don’t understand the reasoning,I don’t really care about epicode format too much, more about full-word terminology used in article names and text. Please let me know how the discussion goes. --LaprasBoi 15:34, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Aerodactyl pic

Is the Aerodactyl pic at Gary Oak enough good quality or should someone replace it? --FinnishPokéFan92 19:32, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

It's alright, I suppose, although a better resolution would be better. --electAbuzzzz 19:47, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

List of Pokémon by anime debut

Hi, I noticed you replaced my list of Pokémon with a redirect. I hadn't seen the page List of Pokémon by anime debut, as it wasn't linked from List of Pokémon, but I have added it there now. However there are a couple of sortability problems with this page, as:

  • Page is split into sections so is not globally sortable.
  • Page does not place movies in their proper place within the order.
  • "AG" episodes will always be placed before "EP", when actually it was the other way around, etc.

I was trying to create a page which would be globally sortable, regardless of the generation or media type. Should such a list be on a separate page or the same page? Kidburla 19:09, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Globally sortable is a good thing, as is an EP-AG-DP sortability list... What we'd have to do to make AG go first would be to comment out its EP epicode (for example, AG001 is EP275, DP001 is EP467). And that's a pain. TTEchidna 20:10, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
Other than the fact that Snover debuted in PK19 and Abomasnow and Frosslass debuted in PK20, and so on. MaverickNate 20:15, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't know if we have the right settings to do this on our wiki, but this might be useful. —darklordtrom 23:15, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
It works, we have several sortable tables and I myself made the list of games by release date sortable... you can add an invisible span thingy to make things sort the way you want... That is how the evolution column works over at Wikipedia’s full List of Pokemon. I would suggest using a text editor to insert them with replace all. I can do the basic work very quickly and easily... inserting the movies may be trickier though. I’ll show you what I have in mind as a first step when I get back from breakfast. --LaprasBoi 15:34, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
{{Sort}}. There. I created it and it works. Feel free to use it. First parameter is the sort key, second one is the link (leave it blank if it's the same as 1), third is if you don't want a link but regular text. --electAbuzzzz 16:19, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
Excellent... I just did the sorting QND for now, but I may try to implement the template in the next few weeks if no one else does. --LaprasBoi 19:47, 9 December 2009 (UTC)


There are some suggestions on the talk page from another user and from me, good ideas that we cannot implement, since link templates are protected. --LaprasBoi 19:47, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Editing the P template is something we do only if there's a very good reason to, because it gives a server a LOT of work to do. Alttext already exists, as you can see here. Section linking... I don't see why that's necessary. We hardly ever link to sections on Pokémon pages, so we can do it manually on the rare cases we need it. --electAbuzzzz 20:09, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Need a Suggestion plz !!!

Hey buddy, as you know that i am working on Pokémon in South Asia project. So, i need a little help from you. I am doing it for the first time like to create a new article. Anyway, back to the point, i want you to check this outémon_in_South_Asia and am i doing it correctly or not? I need your important suggestion. Thanks --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 08:25, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

May's Hebrew name

Someone put a Hebrew name in May's article. Is it authentic? I think you could know as you're from Israel, aren't you? Also, I just returned home. I think I have some time to work on "Pokémon in Poland" article this week. --Maxim 15:53, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon templates

I think that the new templates you have made are really good. I also decided to try and did the same to Dawn's template. However, some pics are still msiing. Could you help? --FinnishPokéFan92 15:58, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh, sorry... --FinnishPokéFan92 15:58, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon in France

Hey 'buzzzz, happy new year! Anyways, I've been working on this for the past couple of days. Has it reached mainspaceability yet? :P --ZestyCactus 06:39, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

I could just hug now. Great work. If you're looking for another one to do, I really want the Germany article done. --electAbuzzzz 08:45, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Pokémon in Germany. I hope it was okay to mainspace it by myself :X --ZestyCactus 01:25, 8 January 2010 (UTC)


I just thought of an idea for a Pokédex template.

I'm thinking it'd go down as {{pokedex}} but there's already some kind of text there, so I don't know if I should overwrite it... anyways, the code would be [[List of Pokémon by {{{1|}}} Pokédex number|{{{1|}}} Pokédex]], and you just put the parameter in as National, Johto, New, Hoenn, or Sinnoh, and it'll save on some bytes. What do you think? I'd be happy to do all the laborious work, too. --Oz (The Wizard at Work!) 15:16, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, I deleted {{pokedex}} because it was only used by a user who hasn't been active in nearly 3 years. Thing is, we're not entirely sure whether or not we really need that link template you suggested. I mean, how often do we use such links? --electAbuzzzz 21:37, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
They're on pretty much all the number disambigs, and that was really where the idea came from. I dunno, I just thought it was worth a shot. --Oz (The Wizard at Work!) 22:02, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Anyways, I went and made one that works a little differently so it can be compatible with Browsers (and maybe some other ones that I'm not aware of)→User:Oz/Pokedex. I just think it could help cut down space and make things neater, in case the need arises for it to be used somewhere outside disambigs (like in a "X_(type)" page or something). If you don't like it, or still don't think you need it, just feel free to delete it and put a message on my talk page. Thanks for listenin'! --Oz (The Wizard at Work!) 15:21, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
It's true that such a template would've saved bytes on the numbers disambigs had it been created in advance - but you're forgetting that every revision is saved, and therefore the existing revisions would still be on the server and no actual room will be saved. Since we don't use such links on almost nothing but those number disambigs, I don't see what the point of the template would be. --electAbuzzzz 16:27, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
D'oh! Oh well, thanks for the speedy reply. :) --Oz (The Wizard at Work!) 17:00, 13 January 2010 (UTC)


Well, most of the stuff is fairly obvious, like "badges" and "Misty". Though I'll try to be more careful of that in future, but the vast majority of it is really just garbage.--Mostly Harmless 03:45, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Ranger: Tracks of Light

I'm guessing you haven't seen this morning? If you had, you would've slapped a cleanup tag on the page instead of deleting it. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 14:11, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Seeing what you put on VampireBidoof's talk page, it seems you actually think that the article was false. You need to see Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 14:15, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
I haven't, I never go to Serebii. But that's not the point. The naming was all wrong. And now that I did check Serebii, it says "first details of CoroCoro are starting to leak", "seem to indicate the possibility of a new game", "rumoured to be called", "It is said that CoroCoro", etc. Let's wait just a tad more, until the details are clearer. --electAbuzzzz 14:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

The information isn't false about the game. On serebii they put pictures of your character riding on raikou. --VampireBioof

Again, read what I just wrote to MM above your comment. --electAbuzzzz 14:24, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
That was written before they did leak. At first the only credibility was though a common blog which is 0 and then the magazine scans came out which says a lot more than some random blog :p Most of that wording though is from before the scans got out there. Yaminokame 14:24, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
That's all good, but we're gonna translate this ourselves as soon as our American Japanese-knowing users wake up. We do not, as a rule, take whatever's on Serebii's main page and put it up. Definitely not in the way VampireBidoof tried to. --electAbuzzzz 14:27, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
No, I know lol. I'm just informing that the scans are good and it's not in the speculation phase anymore :p Yaminokame 14:30, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

I have read the manual and I do sign my username at the end of my comments on talk pages --> Vampirebidoof 9:35, 13 January 2010 (EST)

I have a question...

I would like to make my user page like yours but I don't know how. I'd appriciate it if you would let me know. --Vampirebidoof 14:43, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

What exactly do you want to know? The best way to learn wiki-coding is by looking at existing coding. You want something that my userpage has? Click "edit" and read the code (but don't actually edit it!). You're welcome to copy any coding you'd like. --electAbuzzzz 14:45, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! --Vampirebidoof 14:47, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Just one problem - there's no "edit" button! lol--Vampirebidoof 14:52, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Right, that's because my userpage is protected, I forgot that. Only admins can edit protected pages, but regular users can still view the code. On protected pages, instead of of the usual "edit this page" button on top, you're suppose to see a "view source", or something like that. --electAbuzzzz 14:56, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Thx. --Vampirebidoof 17:37, 13 January 2010 (UTC)


could you please tell me the secret of the expandable function? i would like have this in my wiki too --Hanmac

TBH, I never experimanted with that thing myself. But it should be very simple. Just look at the coding of something expandable, like {{vatable}}. --electAbuzzzz 17:55, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
yes i knew it, with the class="expandable", is this a special js function? or how does the wiki do this? --Hanmac 18:30, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
No idea. Have you tried it and it didn't work? --electAbuzzzz 18:31, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
in this wiki works, in my not. possible the expandable stands in some mediawiki:*.js? --Hanmac
I think it is in the js file. TTEchidna 21:52, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

One question

Hi, the page on the DP142 mind that this episode is the first appearance of Rayquaza in anime, this is not wrong? Since he appeared in the episode before the Malice in Wonderland. That was where a Mismagius the characters dream of different things ... Hikaru Wazana 21:19, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, DP142 is the one where it makes a first "real" appearance, I guess. Kenji-girl is the person to ask about this. She's the Project Anime leader. --electAbuzzzz 09:47, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon dub

DO you know where I might be able to a list of all users have listed them selfs as croatian speakers.As they might be able to help me find out if their is a serbian dub.Thanks --Solid! 05:47, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Here and here could be good places to start... But can't you just search for information on the web? --electAbuzzzz 09:51, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks I messaged a user now asking if a plain serbian dub exists.i have searched web but only found croatian so pretty confident their isn't one.thanks --Solid! 11:05, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Color scheme?

Is it based on starter Pokémon? If that's the case, then the Dawn and Paul trainer templates are inaccurate, right? ht14 23:34, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

No, it's not based on starter. It's just themes we've come up with. See the list we're working on here. It's not just these nav templates - it's the VA tables, and the tables on Ash's friends, and soon the new character infoboxes... --electAbuzzzz 23:37, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Administrator Registration !!!

Hey Buzzz, I was wondering, is there any special kind of rule for being an admin? Is there any registration form or a task is required to be an admin of bulbapedia? I am curious because I want to be an admin on bulbapedia (I wish). So, can I apply for the adminstration ship (:P)? --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 12:54, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but it's not exactly an asking system... We promote users who we feel have earned their powers and can put them to good use. Asking won't get you there, I'm afraid. You're a good user, but you still have a way to go before we can consider it (for example, your edit count is still 3 digits... Not that that's the only thing we look at, but yeah). --electAbuzzzz 13:03, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I can understand (sorry for asking about it, I didn't knew that). Wait, you said "But yeah". What does that suppose to mean? Sorry, I am not yelling (I am asking, it looks like I am yelling :D). --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 13:12, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I guess I should talk simpler to users who aren't native English speakers (I'm not a native speaker myself, but... nevermind). I just meant that there are a lot of things we look at, edit count being one of them. Yes, you need to have more edits. No, having more edits will not automatically mean you can join the staff. We look at the quality of your contributions, at how well you follow our guides and policies, and other stuff. As I said, you're a good user - but I wouldn't expect anything soon. Stay on a good path, and maybe you'll get there in the future. --electAbuzzzz 13:31, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I will try my level best. Anyway, thanks a lot for the information buzzz. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 13:37, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

New article-Spenser's Claydol

Hey, what happened? i just made a new article on Spenser's Claydol with all manual style of art designs and so nicely....and you go and just move it down into just a short part and delete my article page.. Can i get a reason for this? - unsigned comment from Debroop (talkcontribs)

Yes, the reason is here. Your article was good, yes, but we prefer not to have a million small articles when they can be combined into large, quality articles. --electAbuzzzz 08:44, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon on trainers pages

Hey, why on all the pages do the Pokémon captured by the trainers span out sideways? It is really annoying and i wonder if you meant it to look like that instead of on top of each other? Mudkipluvr4ever 22:12, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Ummmm... What? They don't span out sideways for me. What browser are you using? --electAbuzzzz 22:13, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
IDK? what does that mean? But on Paul's, Barry's, Koga's and Kotone's at least they are. Mudkipluvr4ever 22:16, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
What browser are you using? The program you use to surf the Internet? Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera...? 梅子 22:18, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Internet Explorer. Am i the only one who has the pages look like that? Mudkipluvr4ever 22:21, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Nope, you're not the only one. I just checked with IE and that is indeed how they're showing up.
The best way to fix this is to download Firefox. 梅子 22:22, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
How do you download Firefox and how much does it cost? Mudkipluvr4ever 22:25, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
All free, you can look it up. We fixed this specific problem, but you should know this wiki looks a thousand times better on Firefox. --electAbuzzzz 22:29, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
