By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.

English names

Hey there, thanks for your recent work on episode synopses. I just wanted to remind you, however, to please make sure to always use English names where they are applicable. Even if the episode has only aired in Japan, the synopsis should still use English names. Thanks again. :) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 15:08, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry about using a few Japanese names by mistake. I was getting a few names mixed up and didn't realize it until they were edited. I will make sure to use only English names where applicable. G50 21:56, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm guilty of it myself. I've written synopses before and ended up using "Pokabu" a few times instead of "Tepig". Accidents happen. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:16, 7 April 2012 (UTC)


Please remember to always sign your comments. You can sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) or clicking the signature stamp (button_sig.png) on the top of the edit box. Thank you for taking your time to read this message, have a good day. --ForceFire 09:01, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Also, you can sign after you've forgotten to as it gives off the wrong timestamp.--ForceFire 09:06, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
I will make sure to remember to sign the comments. I'm sorry about forgetting a few times. G50 12:07, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
You should also link your signature to your talk page.I had a tough time contacting you.Like this:-Shravs (Nuvema Gym) 06:53, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Also, as per the Signature policy, your signature is supposed to resemble your username. I don't understand Korean, but Google Translate indicates that your signature is not related to your username. When using foreign languages, it is better if your signature is a direct translation of your username. --SnorlaxMonster 13:57, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay. G 50 14:11, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Link templates and other stuff to consider

Just a tip, you don't need to add "attack" after a move. Also, make sure you use the correct link templates. Use {{type}} instead of {{t}}-type if you want to type in "<type>-type" (Like this: {{type|Grass}} should come out as Grass-type). For a full list, go here.--ForceFire 12:50, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Okay, I will remember to do that. G50 12:55, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Re: Welcome

Thanks for the welcome! I have a small question though. I have a bit of experience with the Pokemon game engine and would it be suitable to add in 'cheated/modified' alterations of Pokémon that allow it to do special things in Trivia, or whatnot. In example, if I find that teaching a MAGIKARP 'Giga Impact' via the forms of cheating would make it evolve into GYARADOS. Would this be acceptable? Thanks, R0cketor 11:56, 18 April 2012 (UTC)


Dude you're extraordinary! I mean those synopsis are just perfect! I couldn't hold myself from telling you this. I too completed about 15 before but you my friend, you have what I lack and that is patience and of course a better utterance*. You do them in the same way as you breath*. Keep up the good work !----DJWolfy 22:28, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Editing episode pages

Please do not edit episode pages while the episode is still airing. Please save all edits until the episode has finished. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 12:47, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Okay, I'm sorry about that. 태권도 합기도 12:51, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Future episode moves

You are adding the moves improperly in many ways, even so that the pages become very messed up. Here's an example how they should be added.--Den Zen 11:45, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

On the one I just did (prior to the minor edit), when I tried to have Heatmor not be hidden, it came out wrong. What did I do wrong? 태권도 합기도 12:08, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
You didn't change Heatran's section from btm to mid.--ForceFire 12:12, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. 태권도 합기도 12:15, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Drill Run

What's wrong with my add on Drill Run, could you please give me the reason of removing it? Nickvang 16:35, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

I thought it wasn't notable. You could ask an Administrator if it is notable, since I could be wrong. G50 21:38, 22 May 2012 (UTC)


In relation to some of the edits you made recently, please try not to be influenced by forum speculation when editing. People there throw out random ideas all the time and should not be taken too seriously. If you are unsure, ask me. Thanks. --ケンジガール 22:30, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Okay, no problem. G50 01:41, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Vending Machine cards

With regards to the Vending Machine cards you have edited recently, you could bring these up to the same standard as the ones I am currently working on instead of just updating the new card name. These are just minor changes, mostly updating the Japanese set name at the top, the infobox and in category links, as well as noting if any of the cards are in other sets, such as the Quick Starter Gift Set. Have a look at some from Extended Sheet 1 if you're stumped, or give me a holler. Thanks ~~nuva-kal 18:28, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Okay. G50 18:39, 2 June 2012 (UTC)


Please read this discussion about types.----DJWolfy 01:34, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

My bad, I misinterpreted what was being said. G50 01:35, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Off-topic, what happened with the synopsis ? You did an excellent job as I mentioned before but suddenly stopped writing. ----DJWolfy 01:39, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
I should be doing them again soon. I've just been really busy recently. G50 01:42, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Most exquisite. Good luck! ----DJWolfy 01:47, 4 June 2012 (UTC)


Rather than confusingly creating a talk page for them with nothing but a delete template, please report them directly to an active administrator. --SnorlaxMonster 15:32, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Okay, I understand. G50 15:34, 5 June 2012 (UTC)


Hey, I'm new here. You probably won't see much of me, but I'll help out when I can. ZeypherMage7 08:41, 8 June 2012 (UTC)


Here's the thing, some templates are heavily used across the site, so editing them causes a lot of server strain. So when we edit those templates, we have to be sure to only edit it once; so all the edits have to be perfect and final. You did not ask if you could edit Template:Sidegame, not to mention I already have one in the works. So yeah, don't do that again without asking, or even testing first. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:04, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

I understand. I'm very sorry for doing that without permission. G50 04:09, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

...what is that?

From an Old Man on the 25th Floor of the building near the Pokémon Center; From a man on the 23rd Floor of the green and gray building just west of the water; From a Butler on the 23rd Floor of the building just east of the water - What is that supposed to be? That's a very bad wording. While the one with Pokémon Center isn't that bad... the second and third one I could just delete, as there is no clue whatsoever where are these buildings. Please, make it more precise. What you wrote should be in the location's article the item is found (look at Leftovers on the page, I just wrote Castelia Sewers as it is where they're found. The description of more precise location is in location's article). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 08:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Okay. G50 08:25, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Now it's fine. Honestly, I had no idea about their location until now.Marked +-+-+ (talk) 08:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
I have a couple of tips for writing about item locations. I wouldn't post them if the issue been resolved, but I already typed them when Marked said it was okay. So I'm going to post them anyway. XD Try not to say just 'east' or 'west'. Northeast, southeast, and such are more helpful if possible. Try using the other land marks in the city, too. Like the market and the gym. For example, the one that mentions the Pokémon Center, is that the building that is directly above the market? If so, that's how I would describe it. "From a Butler on the 25th floor of the building directly above (or north of) the market." That's really the only one where I can guess where you might mean. I hope this helps you. Crystal Talian 08:57, 12 July 2012 (UTC)


Can you help to create the actual article? Gspbeetle (talk) 14:36, 17 July 2012 (UTC)


Do you actually play the games? What you put under Challenge Mode on Undella Town was a team from Normal Mode. I know, as yesterday (or two days ago) I fought that team on Normal Mode (I don't have CM unlocked anyway, only Assist Mode) on White2. Now we're missing pre-Champion Challenge Mode anyway. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 07:31, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

I was using a walkthrough that said they were using Challenge Mode. This might mean that Driftveil City is wrong too. ._. G50 07:41, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I misunderstood what you were referring to. I should have double-checked what Mode it was instead of assuming it was also Challenge Mode. I saw different levels and pokedollar reward and thought they were different games instead of two different modes. G50 09:20, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Conquest evolutions

What do you mean by challenge battles? I just evolved my Dusclops into Dusknoir by beating a regular old silver warrior. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 03:56, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

I've tried evolving the Pokémon in regular battles (where there are both wild Pokémon and warriors' Pokémon to battle), but it hasn't worked for me, but when I used them in Challenge Battles (where you are challenging a Kingdom or vice-versa), they evolved. (link % was correct, item was correct for trying evolution in both cases) G50 04:17, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm 100% sure that Dusclops evolved when fighting a regular battle where it defeated the warrior's Pokemon, because I waited to face the next kingdom until it evolved. That's odd. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 04:20, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Just tested it again. It works with regular battles, provided the Pokemon you want to evolve is the one who defeats the Warrior's Pokemon.--It's Funktastic~! (talk) 05:06, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
I just tested it three times with Dusclops, it still won't evolve in regular battles... I tried the method you just mentioned, but same result. Maybe it's just my game... G50 05:10, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Your Today in History edit

Could you please tell me what was wrong with my revision so that you did this edit? It's because tought it was not related with Pokémon, things like Christmas are also listed.TheOriginalOne 20:18, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

I was told to undo that edit by an administrator. G50 01:40, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
"Today in history" should be limited to Pokemon related events, in my opinion. That's why I am not sure about the boxing day, and similar events. I know that they are supposed to be 'special' occasions but I just don't like the idea of noting such things in general when the article clearly says that "This page details selected events in the Pokémon franchise history.". I think I will have to talk to the other staff members about it. When we have a unanimous decision, it will be either re-added or the other ones will be removed for consistency. AdynizWanna talk? 01:56, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

DeepSeaTooth and DeepSeaScale

I assume you checked Explorers games, right? Marked +-+-+ (talk) 11:49, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes. G50 11:52, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Mangnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth dungeons

We have {{PMD locations}} and {{PMD2 locations}}, but I'm lost as to where the Magnagate one should be made. Since you have been creating the articles, I thought I'd ask you first. --Abcboy (talk) 13:44, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

I would personally say {{PMD Magnagate locations}}, though I highly recommend you ask Project co-leaders Jo The Marten or Werdnae about it. G50 15:56, 28 November 2012 (UTC)


For some reason, there's nothing like that and it uses * instead. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 09:50, 26 December 2012 (UTC) PS. ...nor it has sell3. Eh. We might need some updates on template (the buy notes, sell3, as well as third image at least; main series + rescue + explorers. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 09:55, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. sell3, sellnotes3, and buy3 have been inputed into the template. G50 10:53, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Anything else I can do to help?

Hello. This is Lugiafanatic from the forums. I recovered my account! Yay! :P In the FAQ, it says I should expand the stubs, and so on. But those are all things on obscure, 10-year old events, TCG, and so on. And I, unfortunately know nothing about those things. Is there anything else I can do! Sorry to keep bothering you.... --Eastern (talk) 02:26, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

You can have a look through Articles that need improvement, and Articles needing more information to see what you can help out with. You can also help out with lists including Pokémon, moves, anime, locations, as well as other articles. You may ask questions at any time, it's not a bother. G50 04:11, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
I was referring specifically to templates and stuff--do you guys need any help with that? --Eastern (talk) 01:23, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Could you be a bit more specific as to which template would need to be fixed? G50 02:32, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
