I am made of metal,
My magnets gleam,
I am perpetual,
I keep this site clean.

There's been rumblings of too much non-pedia discussion around here, so in the best interest of on-topic discussion, if you want to tell me something personal, or just plain off-topic, send me a Personal Message (PM) on the Bulbagarden Forums.

BTW...tired of waiting for a new Pokémon game just to tackle some new gyms? Then bring it on.

Future Lockdown

Will regular users still be allowed to edit talkpages or no? ht14 08:11, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

nobody, nothing. -- MAGNEDETH 08:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
So admins, bureaucrats, checkusers, bots, etc cannot... ok. ht14 08:13, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
well, i thought you meant non-admins. admins will still be able to edit, so we can work. -- MAGNEDETH 08:14, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I initially meant. You got me there with nobody... got it. i.e. temporary block for EVERY page until the weekend. ht14 08:16, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
basically, the entire userbase will be going into abuse, minus admins. and the abuse will cover all pages instead of just userpages. and you wont actually be in abuse. -- MAGNEDETH 08:18, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
A Bulbanews article has just been published. Full details are there, and you can inquire on that talk page or in the forums if you must. —darklordtrom 08:30, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Userspace Privilages

Hi, sorry to keep bothering you on your talk page. I was just wondering if I have earned my userpage editing privilages back. I have definetely learned my lesson. Also, just to make sure, I should edit the mainspace at least 30 times before making a userspace edit, right? I can assure you that I can use these privilages properly and I will remember to use the preview button (lol). Thanks :). -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 19:03, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

youve only been without your privileges for 2 weeks. the standard amount of time to wait is a month, pending good behavior. have you been editing well? yes, but youve also been bothering me about it, and spending a lot of time on talk pages. just relax, and stop bringing it up. the more times you keep asking, the more i dont want to give them back. just be patient, keep making good edits, and if youre quiet about it, ill consider giving them back before your time runs out. -- MAGNEDETH 20:14, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay :). -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 20:18, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

hi, I recently was disabled from talking, because of too much editing. But, I was doing alot of editing at one time, so I couldn't see all of the warnings. I don't see why you couldn't take that into account, but, if you could tell me your reasons, that would be great. JetanHertz13 08:17, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

the warning on your talk page explains why your privileges were removed. we dont allow users to edit their userpage too much because its not contributing to the site in a helpful way. -- MAGNEDETH 17:20, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Lax and Aero

Okay so I've been reading up on Pokemon Special and I can see that many main team members do not have articles. I will take it upon myself to create these articles myself but I just want your permission first. I will get started on these at least tommorow and I've done some work on the Red article for volume 1 so if you want to see that for proof. LAx and Aero will be my first. Come back with your permission or not and please say why not if no. BrokenMotor 21:39, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

i dont know what youre talking about as i dont read the manga. your best bet is to talk to CoolPikachu! as he is the manga leader. -- MAGNEDETH 21:40, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
Pardon my intrusion, but I believe it was decided that Aero and Lax were not notable for their own articles. But it's still better to talk to CP first. --Psyライダー 22:15, 7 November 2009 (UTC)


Is there any way to check how many edits I have made in a month? Like how many I've made this November. If I look in my contribs it is all messy and I can't tell how many and is I go in preferences it just says the total. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 23:31, 10 November 2009

for a rough estimate you can go into your contribs and select mainspace only, but thats the best youre going to get. a genuine number of edits can only be attained from special pages you dont really have access to. -- MAGNEDETH 23:33, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. I'm going for contributor of the month this month. I have around 400 edits in 10 days.
Just saying: we have the same birthday - which is pretty sweet. Ok, I will leave you alone now. -Lugia (TalkEdits) 06:05, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
One last quetions... how can I make a link to the Archives? I know that from the Archive to bulbapedia it is: {{bp| but what is it to the Archives is it {{ba| -Lugia (TalkEdits) 17:44, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I August I abused my user page rights and ended up locking my page. since then I have tried to learn my lesson and and use the preview button and signature and also listen more carefully to the advice of those more experienced than me. on November 10 you sent me a message saying that my privileges for editing my page have been taken away.

Though I am willing to pay the price and go without this for as long as you see fit, I am somewhat confused about what I have done in November that could possibly hurt bulbapedia or break any guidelines, though I am guessing that it is about the same thing as before.

If it is, then why can't I edit ANYTHING????

Shouldn't I at least be able to edit normal pages? If my editing privileges(except for talk pages) are completely restricted for the time being, why not just ban me?!?! Please respond

GEN1KING (TALK) 05:07, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
gee, id love to help you User:Example but i dont have any records of you doing anything, or my editing your privleges at all. -- MAGNEDETH 05:10, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Your clarity... something to behold. Truly, it is a work of art. There seems to be no way anyone can misunderstand what it is you ask of them. Glinn Mgraw 13:29, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

i dont guarantee my foreseeable premonitions, its up to the perceiver of my conveyed demographic to elaborate in a sense to understand its true meaning. the fact youre Australian sort of puts a damper on that. -- MAGNEDETH 18:01, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Your notability page

Could you put James's second Victreebel up there? CuboneKing 01:56, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

i could, but its already marked for removal, just not on my page. -- MAGNEDETH 01:58, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Where's it marked for removal? CuboneKing 01:59, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
nowhere really. its going to moved to the list of temp Team Rocket Pokemon. -- MAGNEDETH 02:01, 16 November 2009
Why not do it now? (sorry for bothering you) CuboneKing 02:03, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
im only currently patrolling, i dont have the time. ill do it later. -- MAGNEDETH 02:04, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon Counterparts

I recently made an article: <link removed>. It is absolutely nowhere near complete... until i have gonished it should i move it to my Sandbox? -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:36, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

it is now located at User:LugiaRocks/Pokémon counterparts. -- MAGNEDETH 00:40, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
K- when it is done itll be shining on the main space. -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:45, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
ask first, theres some debate over if its even notable or not. -- MAGNEDETH 00:46, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

k well do u think that it is notable it could be merged with that gender counterparts thing -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:49, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

idk, well see how it turns out. -- MAGNEDETH 00:49, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

New HG/SS Pictures

I just now got some new English HeartGold and Soulsilver screenshots (yes, these are legit. I got them from Poké, and they are high quality). Should I replace any Japanese screenshots with these, or do I just stick them in the game's page? Also, you use .png for screenshots, right? Pokemon486 01:28, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

did you upload these shots to the Archives? and yes, we use png for screens. -- MAGNEDETH 01:30, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, that's the thing. I will upload them, but I need to know where I should put it. Pokemon486 01:33, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
weeelll, id like to see them first. thing is, the HGSS article already has plenty of images, but some are in Japanese. but even so, we want to keep some of the first, original images. tough call indeed. -- MAGNEDETH 01:34, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I'll upload them. Pokemon486 01:50, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
use capital letters where? in image uploading? you can if you want to, just remember that all files are case sensitive on a wiki. -- MAGNEDETH 01:51, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
You don't capitalize when you reply. ^_^ Pokemon486 01:54, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
i wasnt aware i had to. -- MAGNEDETH 01:54, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Meh, I capitalize. And I uploaded the pictures. Files are Hg-ss english 1.PNG, Hg-ss english 2.PNG, and Hg-ss english 3.PNG. Pokemon486 01:59, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
well, i appreciate the effort, but of those shots, the ones we have are better quality, and two of them are even animated. so well have to pass this time around. also, word of advise, when uploading images never use all caps file extensions. (kind of ironic given we just talked about caps) -- MAGNEDETH 02:11, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
1.How can I get better quality? Those are straight off of the Pokémon website. 2.Those are all the screenshots, so I can't do anything animated. 3.I shall keep in mind to make it .png myself instead of having the computer tell me that it's saved at .png and then save it as .PNG. Pokemon486 04:44, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
its not your fault the site posted crappy quality pictures. id just wait for now, its not a major concern. -- MAGNEDETH 04:46, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

List of Pokémon by color

I was wondering, was there any reason for changing the color for the Red category to a pinkish color? The reason why I chose the orangeish-red color was because the Red category includes both red and orange colored Pokémon. Pink just doesn't look right, as there is already a separate color category for Pink-colored Pokémon. Andros 1337 17:14, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

i got a few complaints that the red color was "hurting [people's] eyes" so, it changed it to a preset of "red light". yea its a little pink-ish, but its not as "painful" so to speak. those tables are getting redone soon anyway, so i wouldnt worry about it. -- MAGNEDETH 17:52, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps a better color would be FF6644 as it is an orange-red color that isn't as bright. Andros 1337 18:07, 21 November 2009
ill just update the templates to something else entirely now. -- MAGNEDETH 18:08, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Not to question an admin, but...

Well, that's exactly what I'm doing. I was on Raticate's page, and saw HeartGold and SoulSilver had English Dex entries, without any translation note or anything. I went in the history and saw that you added the SoulSilver one, at least, and I was wondering why. Shouldn't we either put a translation note, put the Japanese entry, or leave it blank until the English release? OR is there some official source I'm missing here? The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 22:36, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

the HGSS ones are direct translations of the old ones. TTE said we didnt need one. given thay are the same, theres not really a point i suppose. -- MAGNEDETH 22:39, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok then. I find it odd that Nintendo's using the same entries, but I guess that's their decision. Sorry to bother you. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 22:43, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
just Nintendo being lazy. theyve done it before. they still have to make new ones for all of the other Gen III and IV Pokemon anyway. -- MAGNEDETH 22:44, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Psst - take a look at the FRLG entries. They've done this before. :3 梅子 22:44, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Is there a reason

that you deleted Template:Romanizations/藤田靖弘? It was right and needed MaverickNate 17:11, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

i wasnt aware we needed a template containing one person's name. more to the point, i thought romanization template were big, and full of lots of names. whatever, ill just not bother with them anymore. -- MAGNEDETH 19:55, 24 November 2009 (UTC)


Can I ask for your opinion about a new project?--Midnight Blue 05:42, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

sure. -- MAGNEDETH 06:03, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Do you think it would have any good of having a project about real world events? Like Pokémon Rocks America(don't think they do that anymore) Pokémon Day in Europe, anything under those categories. Or have a project about how Pokémon is in the real world.--Midnight Blue 06:06, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
eh, not really. there isnt enough to really constitute a project for it. a majority of those events and activities are added to their respectable pages by anyone/everyone, and thats that. -- MAGNEDETH 06:08, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Alright, thanx anyways!--Midnight Blue 06:09, 28 November 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for deleting my pages =) Silver Eevee talk? contribs! 07:18, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Significant of spanish names of Dawn and May

Hi, i was researching in the web and found the does of the Dawn and May's spanish names, what I wrote was true, I gain nothing by lying or making nonsensereally, if you dont believe me then look at the following links:

[1] (May's spanish name)

[2] (Dawn's spanish name)

I hope this clear your mind I found. Please let me edit and I only put back what is true, please give me these opportunities and because section of May (game) not so for like Dawn (game) I refer to the names, why May no "Names" like Dawn (game) or animated series counterpart, please let me put, I hope your answer is not nothing wrong with the site I am a big fan of Pokémon in the Spanish language, and never give any wrong information to what I admire please let me do this and more, please, thanks - unsigned comment from Ash Ketchum Peru (talkcontribs)

i dont see any information on those pages about Pokemon at all. also, are you aware we have a Spanish Wiki? -- MAGNEDETH 06:22, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
I know, but the significant of names is authentic, please let me put - unsigned comment from Ash Ketchum Peru (talkcontribs)
i cant let you put unverified information on the pages. also, please sign your comments with 4 tildes. -- MAGNEDETH 06:29, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Why? I told you not win anything lying I just put what is true is that you do not know about that investigate all things Pokémon are based on real life but not make the effort to investigate it, and if the information I will not seem related to equal PKMN is valid, do your own research with the other names in other languages and know that I'm right and you do not, please I want to do that this page is the best but let me t'no Please do not make me mad just because you're a top country going to believe you that you are superior and not, pleas

P.S.: Because there is a table of names in May (game) like Dawn (game) --Ash 06:38, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

i will look into this, or have someone more familiar with the language look into it. -- MAGNEDETH 06:40, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
I know I can help translate from Spanish into English and vice versa and if it is better PKMN, an example: Ash got a Thunderstone in Vermilion City, in my language is: "Ash consiguió un Piedratrueno en Ciudad Carmín" See ya! --Ash 06:46, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
well, to be honest, youre English grammar could use some work, and we already have some people that do English to Spanish, but given Pokemon starts off as Japanese, its mostly Japanese to English that we get the most of. CoolPika should be in touch with you, hes quite fluent in both languages. -- MAGNEDETH 06:49, 3 December 2009 (UTC)


Well, I have reasons for knowing this. On the pages for the Pokemon, i can't translate name etymology because they aren't proper. Besides, I'm gonna start by knowing the Pokemon names in Italian of my favorites, because I'm making a list of Italian names to put on here. I'm more comfortable starting with my favorite ones. Also, I know if you block me from here, today I got my second cockatiel, Max. My first was named Kinky. They love each other. So you can give a short block if you don't want an accurate wiki, or "pedia", but okay. Also, I wanted to make a Greek Encyclopedia Pokemonis. On Bulbagarden Forums, they said they have Pokemon there. I'm also learning greek, but fine. I could be useful if you tell me what page to edit. Also, who can get those cool sgnatures with the tildes? Not me, not you, or anyone. My brother does it, and you don't care. Oh, and I feel like doing something new, to make a true bulbapedian. I'll BLOCK. that's all I see (other than spam) on here. But, block me, it's fine. Kenji girl, time ago, threatened AND spammed me with "hahaha blah blah blah i can talk as much as i freakin want to." But if I'm the bad guy, I'll do what I tried to a while ago. I'll Go inactive. 8P - unsigned comment from Sandshrew-san (talkcontribs)

.....what? -- MAGNEDETH 01:51, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Adding etymology's to Pokémon's italian names is okay. Creating a Greek Poké encyclopedia, no. unless you know alot about Computing and all that, and the Greek..... wait..... Greeks dubs Pokémon?--ForceFire 01:55, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Sandy, are you Italian? are you Greek? and do you know what C++, Binary, and HTML are? -- MAGNEDETH 01:56, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Number one-No, I'm not Greek. I am Italian in ancestry, born in the USA. Number 2-I know what HTML is, sort of Binary, no C++. Number 3-WHAT"S UP WITH CALLING ME SANDY? It's annoying. - unsigned comment from Sandshrew-san (talkcontribs)
the same reason i call you Sandy is the same reason people call me Deth. no one wants to write out a full name every time and you know im talking about you. ANYWAY. i am Italian in ancestry, but it doesnt give me the ability to go adding Italian things to Pokemon pages. id prefer that ability was reserved to someone who is from Italy, and fluent in the language. and if youre not Greek, why the interest? you will face a wall of Greek and have no idea what to do with it. moreover, if you dont know general computer languages, then there is no way you will have the ability to create a wiki. let alone, based on one you have no knowledge of its language. not to mention you cant seem to figure out how to edit THIS wiki properly. -- MAGNEDETH 02:17, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Listen, my brother and I do have a knowledge of C++ and HTML. Our dad taught us more then a year ago. Now, don't go asuming things about people that you do not know. If my brother wants to make a Greek Pokémon Wiki then so be it! Another thing, you may be an admin, but you are not supposed to bug people for things they did not do. Greek dubs of Pokémon are very famous and the Greek names ARE notable. My brother is trying to help. Also, only message people if they are making mistakes, OK? And this "Sandy" bussiness has to stop! Address him by his full username! Got that straight, "Magie"? * --T☆MMYSAN! 01:41 PM December 5, 2009 Eastern Time
I think it would benefit some people to give others more respect. I see the pot calling the kettle black here. -- evkl (need to talk?) 18:48, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
your brother said he has no knowledge of C++, so how can you say he does? shouldnt he know better than you? also, i dont believe i was assuming anything. and hey, he can create a Greek wiki, by all means. im not saying he cant, as in, hes not allowed, im saying he probably cant, as in, he does not have the ability. as for messaging people for mistakes, i didnt message him, he messaged me? i have no idea what youre talking about. as for not calling him Sandy, fine, but instead of complaining about it, he could have simply said "i would prefer you didnt call me that." maybe you get your facts straight before making assumptions next time. -- MAGNEDETH 18:49, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
