Hippie

I know that the Hippie has at least 7 Snorlax because at the end of the episode a device of some sort went off and he said "looks like i need to see number 7" or something like that and there was a number seven on it. - unsigned comment from Yoster10 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for letting me know. If I recall correctly, he also said that it was time to wake up another Snorlax. PattyMan 03:30, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

That is the one i am talking about. Yoster10 15:09, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

More image requests

Could you upload missing images to Manga move errors? I understand if you can't get other than Adventures images and those HG&SS chapter images, but otherwise it would be nice to have it filled up. --FinnishPokéFan92 17:19, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok, but I had trouble finding Petrel's Golbat using Lick. Other than that, I was able to get the Adventures images. PattyMan 22:22, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

I have a request as well. The main image of Ash's Charizard has several flaws: it is pretty badly drawn, is too dark and has other characters in it. I think that AG136 would have the best images of Charizard.--Den Zen 16:11, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Fixed. How does it look? PattyMan 02:28, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Could you fix this problem: following pages are missing their Adventures images: Judgment*, Poison Point and Smack Down*, and the following pages are missing their EToP images: Tackle* and Reflect. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 12:45, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Now could you upload an image where Togebo uses Supersonic via Metronome in PS107? --FinnishPokéFan92 18:08, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Got it and I also uploaded one where it used Leer in the next chapter. It would have been easier for me if this discussion was brought to the bottom of the page with a new topic next time. PattyMan 21:37, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

{{redlink}}

Just a note, you don't need to use the template on links to non-existing userspace pages. The userspace is specifically set to not appear on the Wanted Pages. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 02:27, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

ppm pokemon

misty jigglypuff does not appears in "the no.1 pokemon". she is not commanding it, so it should belong to another trainer or wild. her jigglypuff debut in pm022, but it is unknown if it belongs to her, but it makes subsequent appears after that, so i should debut in pm022.

lt surge does not hook up the kingler. lt surge allows his kingler to be hook up by clefairy when he is fishing as a prank on red.

blue's raichu is sent in a battle with red. it does not battle against mewtwo and giovanni as stated in blue's article.

i had seen that you uploaded an image of erika's bulbasaur. that is actually her venusaur acting as a bulbasaur, with red, erika, pikachu and clefairy inside the bulb to prevent team rocket from catching them, not a separate pokemon.

thanks for reading, and sorry for the grammer errors. -Pokeant 03:05, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

EDIT: the other grass pokemon seen with erika are just pokemon living in the forest, and erika is protecting the forest. i am not sure if they belong to her, so maybe we should put it under unknown. -Pokeant 03:07, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm a little confused about the Lt. Surge part with Kingler, how did it end up in his possession if Clefairy hooked it? As for Jigglypuff, will get the image fixed later on. Also, looks like her Jigglypuff wasn't the one that made the audience fall asleep. I fixed the info on Erika's page so things make sense on there now.
To be honest, I only have access to volumes 1 - 3 of this manga so far in terms of getting the images. I'm glad that your sandbox page has helped me out a lot. PattyMan 04:05, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
I am done with PM (missing volume 14 though). i am not sure about PM020. those pokemon that appears might belongs to other trainers rather than green. each trainer is seen entering the sports meet with only 1 pokemon (red's pikachu does not take part). so i am not sure if those pokemon belongs to green or others trainer -Pokeant 05:58, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
I have created pages that were missing (the ones that had the red links). Check to see how they are going. PattyMan 20:41, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
I had added pokemon from ruby sapphire volume. i do not own any others -Pokeant 16:07, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Good job for getting the Pokémon from the Ruby-Sapphire volume. I don't know about what Ruby's Poliwag, Vileplume, Diglett, Jigglypuff, and Primeape did. I think Ruby introduced Pikachu to them during the time Pikachu was in Ruby's possession. However, I am completely sure that his Treecko was swapped for Pikachu and vice versa as it was the star Pokémon of the chapter. PattyMan 19:11, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Little note: Tyrogue was released in HGSS. PattyMan 19:16, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
they were having a party. Ruby wanted a pikachu very much. when he saw isamu's pikachu, with clefairy, alone, he requested ruby to trade pikachu with him. tyrogue and isamu is not around at that time. he bribe clefairy with food. clefairy knows pikachu will not agree so he lie to pikachu, saying he is invited to a pokemon party. ruby leaves behind a pokeball containing treecko and goes off with pikachu. treecko heard everything inside and want to tell isamu about clefairy trading pikachu away. the rest is mentioned here. -Pokeant 03:46, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

There is no battle against blaine. there is only quiz. blaine sent his pokemon out as a penalty if they get the quiz wrong. i had a scanner now, so i will try to scan the manga (and maybe golden boys after this). thanks -Pokeant (talk) 15:17, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Blaine's Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga section has been changed around a bit. Did his Golem use Earthquake or any other ground shaking move by any chance? Same question goes for Giovanni's Pokémon in Get The Last Badge!!. By the way, it would be easier next time to start a new section so I could read it better. Still, thanks for your help and you're welcome with getting the scanner. PattyMan 19:16, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

AG007 Dub Error

I noticed you uploaded the AG007 Dub Error image, which is the one with tale instead of tail and the Pokémon unrevealed.  Could you upload another version of that image but with the Pokémon revealed, since the revealed image is needed for the Who's That Pokémon page? - unsigned comment from Lady Ariel (talkcontribs)

Taken care of. PattyMan 00:13, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Image requests 2

Now I'd need an image of Ditty using Wrap in the form of Deoxys in PS274. --FinnishPokéFan92 13:08, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Now I'd need an image of Chatler using Mirror Move and Bullet Punch via Mirror Move, so I can have images for both "Moves used" and "Moves used via Mirror Move". If you could do that, I'd be very pleased. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 16:47, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and besides that above one, could you also upload an image of Flannery's other Slugma before it evolved? --FinnishPokéFan92 16:48, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Do you know if it evolved in Pokémon Adventures as well? It did evolve in the anime. PattyMan 18:04, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Image requests 3

Could you upload an image of Lt. Surge's Raichu using Thunderbolt in the Adventures manga? --FinnishPokéFan92 11:38, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and plus, do you know if Chatler has used other moves than Bullet Punch via Mirror Move? --FinnishPokéFan92 11:52, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

When I uploaded the image of it using Mirror Move from the Magby chapter, the description of it says that it copies the last move used by the foe and mimics them so it may have used a move that it used but I'm not so sure which one. PattyMan 23:26, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Article of Mistralton Gym is missing the image of its battlefield. Could you upload it? --FinnishPokéFan92 17:11, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

The thing is that the episode has not aired yet in my place so I won't be able to get the image. PattyMan 18:11, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Help

Do you mind uploading a much higher quality of the Unova map from B2W2? For some reason, it won't let me upload. I'm not experienced with uploading files, so that's why I am asking you.

Here is the source: [1] Han Ji-Wan 01:24, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

I was able to upload it but it was in a size that my desktop gave me. PattyMan 04:15, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

By the way, I appreciate what you're doing

Just by the way, I really do appreciate the help you're putting into the Pokémon Pocket Monsters-related articles. They really do need work, so I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one trying to put some work into them. You're doing so much better than I though, it seems to me that you've read the actual manga. Rai Marshall 02:15, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm glad about that too. In fact, I liked how you were able to get the accurate translations of the chapter titles for them. PattyMan 03:21, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
Um, not sure what you mean by that, because I'm mainly going with what Bulbapedia already has... I'll be honest, I haven't read the manga, but I would really love to. So, I really don't think I am that helpful. Rai Marshall 03:27, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
I just saw the history of one of the pages and it turns out that I mistakened you* for Mefredbob on the translations as he actually did them. However, I am going to give you credit for getting the pages up-to-date despite not reading the manga before. PattyMan 03:43, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

re: giovanni in pm028 and pm029

in pm028, giovanni host a contest in a dome on tv to make money by getting high tv ratings. the winner will get 1 million yen, but is trying his best to prevent anyone from winning the contest. in the end, clefairy destroyed his dome due to an accident in the contest. in pm029, isamu and his pokemon enters giovanni's amusement park, and he wanted to get rid of them. however, clefairy ends up destroying his amusement park too. -Pokeant 15:20, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Ironic how Clefairy destroys both buildings Giovanni built. What did his Pokémon in those chapters do? PattyMan 15:25, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
That amusement park sounds like Pokémon Land. When you add that info, can you please add it to that page too? --SnorlaxMonster 16:08, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Added on both pages. PattyMan 04:12, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

File links

When linking to a file, please use [[:a:File:Test.png]] and not [[a:File:Test.png]]. That first colon is important. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 16:34, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

So, the red link template isn't needed for the ones that don't exist on the Archives anymore? PattyMan 16:39, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
I suppose not. PattyMan 16:40, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

RE: Golden Boys

Yes i do own the manga. i can update the informations if you need, put i won't be scanning any picture till i buy a new scanner. i also own "Ash and Pikachu", if you need me to update the information. -Pokeant 03:56, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Ok then, go for Black Tyranitar first. Then do Chris's Wooper and her six Magikarp. I'm not worried about the images yet, those will be dealt later. PattyMan 04:03, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
this is the information. hope you can add them in, as i am not good at summarizing things.
Black's gyarados debuts in gb17. he never mentioned where he caught it. gold and jasmine is looking for a pokemon to surf to cianwood city and they do not have any luck finding one. he saw black's gyarados and wanted to borrow it. however, he say he will lend it to him if he defeated him in a battle. he sent out the gyarados he intended to lend in the battle. gold tries not to defeat gyarados as they need gyarados to surf to cianwood. instead he uses pikachu agility to tired it. however, gyarados is too powerful. jasmine can't watch it anymore and send out her steelix, which easily defeated gyarados. black gives gyarados to gold as it can't win against steelix. however, with steelix defeated, they could not surf across the ocean. chris has been trying to fish for water pokemon in the chapter, but all she caught is 6 magikarp. they decided to build a raft and had the magikarp pull it to cianwood instead. chris' wooper first appears in gb18, but she never mentioned where she caught it. -Pokeant 10:36, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

WTP? BW061

Could you upload the image of the English version of Who's That Pokémon? image in BW061? --FinnishPokéFan92 14:34, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Done. I only have a low quality screenshot though, so if any of you have got a better one then please feel free to replace it. Thank you. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 18:22, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
I didn't mind the reply. PattyMan 20:27, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Glare

Could you upload an image of Koga's Arbok using Glare in the Adventures manga? Thanks. --FinnishPokéFan92 11:41, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Done. PattyMan 23:43, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Bruno

I just found out that for some reason the Pokémon Zensho segment was missing from Bruno's article. I added it now, but it still needs images of Bruno and his Pokémon. Could you do the honor of uploading the images? --FinnishPokéFan92 16:30, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I just uploaded those images a few months back. Somehow, I didn't get the chance to make the Zensho section for Bruno. PattyMan 16:43, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
After some search, I managed to find the whole Zensho manga as a downloadable version from the internet, although it's in Chinese instead of Japanese. Can I give you the address here, send it to you via email, or can I just give you here the name of the site where I found it? --FinnishPokéFan92 16:49, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Probably the name of the site. PattyMan 19:43, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Does the name "photobucket.com" ring a bell? It's there. --FinnishPokéFan92 09:42, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
I did use the site. PattyMan 15:08, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
That's good that you know it. Thanks for the images. --FinnishPokéFan92 15:10, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Thisisausername

I see no issue with the username, and you do not report potentially unacceptable usernames by adding a delete tag. You should ask an active admin on their talk page and let them decide if it is unacceptable. --SnorlaxMonster 15:31, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

I just asked Kogoro about this. The name was considered a confusing username as seen in the username policy. PattyMan 15:38, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

A lotta images

I'd like to thank you for uploading those better images for Dark City and Gringey City. Now, since then I have made some filling-ups for more anime-exclusive locations in Kanto and Johto. By following the links on the templates or on my edits lisy, you should be able to find the ones which I'm talking about. Just for you to know, the last article I've reached was Onix Tunnel. Could you download more images to replace those sprites and bad images I'm using? Thanks. --FinnishPokéFan92 16:59, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Phoebe's Dusclops

Hello, Pattyman! Thank you for improving that pic (it is a little too bright now, but okay). I'd just like to ask you to upload a version that showed Dusclops' hand by Phoebe's side. It doesn't look like at first, but it's part of the Pokémon. Thank you! |) u |( e ® 17:19, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Done, reduced the contrast a bit. PattyMan 21:27, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
It's great! |) u |( e ® 02:41, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

re: clefairy's substitute

if you are refering to pm022, he is using a clefairy doll, not the move substitue. and sorry for not contributing to blue's mewtwo page and the golden boys pages. will work on them when have the time. -Pokeant (talk) 09:48, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Right, that was the chapter I was referring to. The item must be an escape item since Clefairy used it to trick them. PattyMan 15:12, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

ThunderShock 3rd gen Animation

Should the animation be slower if it's not that good? Or is it just the overall quality of the png in general? Ms. Who (talk) 22:13, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

The quality is fine, the speed needs to be slower. Here, take a look at this image. The speed should be somewhere around that depending on the number of frames. PattyMan 22:47, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I can actually fix that. I just hope the file isn't to large after changing the frame rate. Hopefully then the change won't get reverted again? Ms. Who (talk) 03:10, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
The file will be the same size. PattyMan 15:07, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
I'd like to note that there is only one animation. That split between Hoenn and Kanto games was proven to be untrue, the animation is the same in all five games (or either I am blind or the difference is hard to spot). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:14, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Okay, so I uploaded a new file to the current one and for some reason it keeps showing the old one. I would try to revert it to animated one that did show up and I'd still see it. I don't know if the changes are taking awhile to show or if it's just me not seeing it. Any ideas why? Ms. Who (talk) 19:48, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
The page has to be refreshed in order for the current one to show up. By the way, you made some improvements with the animation, keep it up. PattyMan 20:08, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

unsigned comments

FYI, if the time between the comment and signature is only a minute or two and no-one has edited the page in between the edits, there's no real need to replace the signature with an unsigned tag. Werdnae (talk) 00:23, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Platinum's Cherrim

Hello, Pattyman!

Err, why did you remove the switch template of Platinum's Cherrim? I think it was working fine, and I did based on Diamond's Rotom.

Thank you! - unsigned comment from Duke R (talkcontribs)

I removed it since there were two images that the template could hold at the same time (img and img2). Diamond's Rotom, I left alone, as there were five images as it has five forms. Lila's Cherrim also has two images shown on the template on her page.  PattyMan 15:57, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, got it! |) u |( e ® 17:33, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Relinking of images

Can you also change the itlistbod template to itemlist?  The template's a bit different in that each version has its own parser as well. So, for instance, say it was in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, you would use {{itemlist|whatever item|G=yes|S=yes|C=yes}}. Thanks! You're doing a great job! =) ht14 21:06, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Got it. PattyMan 21:21, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Oh, forgot to mention one important thing. Exceptions would be Ruby (Ru), Sapphire (Sa), and Black (Bl). Otherwise, everything else is normal. ht14 15:40, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

thanks

Thanks for fixing the section i started on pokemaster97's page. and sorry if it looked messed up. i am blind and my screen reader doesn't tell me what the screen looks like. Christian Woods Azu! 01:13, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. Glad I was able to fix the section. PattyMan 01:22, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Grunt Pokémon

Could you upload images of the BW096's TR Grunts' Golem and Rhydon? In case you can access the episode already, of course. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:31, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I didn't have much access but it was nice seeing you again. PattyMan 22:22, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey there

Thank you for changing those file names on my usertags page. I hadn't checked it lately, although I'm guessing the files were renamed just recently. Either way, thanks for getting those. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:48, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. PattyMan 22:22, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Gold and Silver

they did make additional appearances, but not much. crystal did not make any appearance. i will upload all the images first before going to write summary for each chapter. i had aready listed chuangyi's english titles in the individual volume pages -Pokeant (talk) 08:56, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

I do own "ash and pikachu" and jirachi to manaphy movie manga from chuang yi if you need any. -Pokeant (talk) 08:59, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for my triple edit in that page, my internet was malfuntionating and I kept pushing the Save button thinking that nothing was happenning. But know that I know the damage I've done I promise you it won't happen again.--Igor (talk) 21:44, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

I understand what happened, it's not really your fault. Happens to me every now and then. PattyMan 23:50, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Anime pic

I just noticed that the image where Loudred is supposed to be using Uproar in the anime, it is actually using Hyper Voice. Could you correct it, please? Also, the move Dual Chop is missing an anime pic. Could you upload one? Thank you already beforehand. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:21, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Except that that image of Fraxure shows it using Dragon Claw, not Dual Chop. Could you correct it, please? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:12, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Also, as I now remember and while you're at it, could you upload an image of Virgil's Vaporeon using BubbleBeam for the Anime move errors page? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:52, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to answer in your talk page, Pattyman, but Vaporeon could learn Bubblebeam via TM in the first Generations. Even being impossible nowadays, I don't consider it as an error, FinnishPokéFan92. |) u |( e ® 15:27, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Ah, just checked its appropriate section, sorry. |) u |( e ® 15:30, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
The images have been fixed now. The Dual Chop image has been replaced with the correct one, and the old one has been moved to Dragon Claw. Thanks for the heads up, FinnishPokéFan92. AdynizWanna talk? 16:11, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
No problem. :) --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:31, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Got the BubbleBeam pic although a bit incomplete. PattyMan 19:35, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Indeed. Well, I hope someone will late upload a better version. Thank you, anyway. You're truly a blessing of Arceus, I tells ya. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:56, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
I am hoping that too. Good thing you pointed out the move mistakes. PattyMan 20:24, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
A newer version of Vaporeon's BubbleBeam has been uploaded by Adyniz. PattyMan 03:39, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
I had two requests. One I already forgot, but the other one was: could you upload an anime image of Acid Spray? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:48, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Now I remember the other one. Could you be able to upload the English WTP? image of BW090? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:42, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm going to let someone else upload WTP since they usually upload those kind of images. PattyMan 21:59, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

"Sprite trivia"

What exactly made the note on Silver's page inadmissible, while a trivia point about the same detail is entirely acceptable on the Stat Trainers page? Miles (talk) 17:47, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

The one of the Stat Trainers page hasn't been touched since it was added. I don't know who added it but that trivia point is getting removed. Thanks for pointing it out. PattyMan 21:59, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

let me know what you think

Template talk:Pocket Monsters Characters -Pokeant (talk) 05:27, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

also, in reply to Professor Oak on my talk page, i will be fixing the infos, but not so soon. i try to get it done for the other characters too. also, his other pokemon does not debut in "The Final Battle". it should be "Save the Pokémon Zoo!!" instead. i might be getting HGSS and BW manga too. not sure about DP though -Pokeant (talk) 05:33, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

I like it, it is very organized. Now to give the missing categories to the characters on their respective pages. PattyMan 05:44, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. but i hope that you can help me to fix it up before we use it. -Pokeant (talk) 06:08, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Sure, what do you need help with? PattyMan 03:02, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Clones caught

I added the fact that some of Mewtwo's cloned Pokémon were shortly caught by Team Rocket to the article: Team Rocket Grunt (Trainer class). Could you be able to upload image(s) featuring those certain clone Pokémon in that scene where they were caught? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:52, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Sure. PattyMan 23:17, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Not bad. Not bad at all. You're just amazing. Except that I didn't mean that scene: it shows all the clones together, not only the clones that got briefly caught (you can find the list from the page as well). There is a short shot right after the clones' release where those specific clones were shown. Could you be so kind and fix the pic so it would feature only those clones that got caught? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:42, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I fixed the image. PattyMan 20:25, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Sky Pillar

Can Bulbapedia's CDN be manually purged or will it be purged soon? I think it'd be nice for people who might visit the article to see the correct maps, which don't show up yet there because the CDN hasn't purged yet.

I don't know about there being different maps in Emerald for Sky Pillar, btw. Using AdvanceMap v1.92 to obtain the maps and I haven't seen the ones Team Magma Zangoose uploaded so far. SatoMew 23:35, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

The CDN will need some time to be purged as the new revision just got uploaded. I just found out that the maps prior to the newer versions weren't real. PattyMan 00:02, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
They aren't? I didn't say that they were fake, only that I lack factual evidence of their existence. But watch this YouTube video. The floors of Sky Pillar look awfully similar to something we've seen before, don't they? SatoMew 00:38, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Never mind about them being fake. The maps that we've seen before were when the player hasn't encountered the Elite Four as the Ever Grande City area was not highlighted in red unlike the other ones. Your uploads must be when after the Elite Four was defeated. PattyMan 01:46, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

PM HGSS & BW

I had updated my sandbox accordingly with HGSS and BW. did not manage to get DP series though. some of the pokemon i am not sure, as i do not really understand japanese. -Pokeant (talk) 11:47, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Just updated the pages. The Pokémon you aren't sure about are listed as status unknown except for N's purrloin as it was already listed in the article. PattyMan 21:08, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Wrong images

I see you're now doing manga image updates, but I also have you a report of wrong images, one of them in the anime.

1) The image where Winona's Skarmory uses Drill Peck in the anime: that move seen in the image is Steel Wing, not Drill Peck, it used that move a bit later after that move.

2) The image of Arceus (M12) using Judgment in the manga is not Judgment, it used that move a bit earlier, and I suppose that that image shows it preparing to use Flamethrower or Hyper Beam, you tell me. However, it's clear that that move isn't Judgment, it is notably different-looking. I think it needs its own move. Plus, if you can recognize that other move, you'd be welcome.

Could you fix these mistakes? Thank you. Yours truly, FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:59, 7 January 2013 (UTC).

Another thing: the image where Ash's Monferno is supposed to be using Blaze, it isn't using the Ability, it was even specifically stated that that wasn't Blaze that it used, it was sheer willpower. Could you correct the image so that it shows the real Ability being used? Thanks. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:49, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

I managed to fix Winona's Skarmory's moves and Ash's Monferno's Blaze. However, the part with Arceus using a different move than Judgment would be tough as both Judgment and Hyper Beam featured the orb in front of its head before launching it. As you said that the move isn't Judgment, I would keep it at Hyper Beam. PattyMan 17:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your "effort". Now I would like to say a few things:
  • First, there are panels where Arceus actually uses Judgment and Hyper Beam after charging. You could try if you could make the images out of them.
  • Second, the image of Terri's Hitmontop using Mega Kick isn't correct. That image shows it using Rapid Spin a moment before it actually used Mega Kick. Could you correct it, please?
  • And finally, I just noticed another anime move error: a Wooper using Tackle. Could you add an image of it?
Thank you in advance. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:00, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I managed to fix Hitmontop's Mega Kick and uploaded the image of Wooper using Tackle, as well as some extras. However, I have yet to fix the Arceus one as the images are hard to find. But thank you for your input otherwise. PattyMan 05:25, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
While waiting for that Arceus problem to get solved, you cold some other thing for me, if you would be so kind: first, Jessie's new Frillish is missing an image of her using BubbleBeam. Could you fix it? Also: the image of Paka's Burmy's Hidden Power is not correct, it is simply re-cloaking itself in that image. Thank you in advantage. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Crikko got the BubbleBeam image and I fixed Burmy's Hidden Power image. PattyMan 19:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
That Crikko guy seems to be very good at uploading anime images. He does great work, just like you! Now I've got two new requests, if that's okay. I added the Adventures sections for the moves Spite and Curse, and they need pictures. Could you please do the favor of uploading images of those moves, or at least their effects on their targets? You have my gratitude. :D --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:24, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Sure. PattyMan 19:52, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Nice work on Spite, still waiting for Curse. Also, I think BW108.png could get a better image now that the episode has aired. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:00, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Curse was successful. As for BW108's head image, only an admin higher than the junior on the Archives can do that but I just dropped a message on the talk page telling them so. PattyMan 14:57, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
While waiting for that, I must admit a small mistake I've made: the image I uploaded where Ash's Bulbasaur is supposed to be using Take Down, it is using Tackle instead. I saw that the only time when it was seen using Take Down was a short one, and Bulbasaur wasn't even the focus of the screen at that second. Anyway, could you undo this stupid mistake of mine? Thanks. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:11, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
You didn't make any mistake, Tackle's and Take Down's animation was very similar as both of them involved running straight into an opponent. PattyMan 02:03, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Chumee's ice attack

In the newest translated chapter of the Adventures manga, Crystal's Chumee uses an Ice-type move, but I couldn't recognize it. Could you do that and then also upload the picture of it? Thank you.--FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:47, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

After looking at the move that it used, it was an unidentified attack. PattyMan 03:21, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Battle Records

Why did you reverse that edit I made? --Firered16 (talk) 06:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I believe Force Fire was the one who did it. He explained why on your talk page. You must have mistakened me as I was in the edit summary during the reversion. PattyMan 06:22, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

My bad. Sorry. --Firered16 (talk) 06:24, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

No problem. :) PattyMan 06:27, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

But if I could get your opinion on something, what do you think of adding Battle records to all of the characters on here? --Firered16 (talk) 06:30, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't think it is needed. It is already covered in the history section. PattyMan 19:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

elm in pmhgss

he and sudowoodo are the person in charge of the Pokéathlon. feraligatr, ursaring and miltank belong to one of the participant. still not sure about Loudred though... -Pokeant (talk) 15:35, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

and this is a wild hitmontop, not red's. -Pokeant (talk) 15:39, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Sure, will be fixing those. Also, I was going to tell you that I now have access to Volume 4 and higher of Pokémon Pocket Monsters in terms of images. PattyMan 19:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Re:Dive

I must admit that there was no order for using the move, and I might be just saying meaningless things now, but here is why I think it still could be a move:

1. There have been multiple cases in the anime where moves have been used even without a Trainer's command, and they still have been regarded as moves.
2. In addition to that, even moves used without a command, moves have also been used without being identified out loud.
3. And finally, the best proof in my opinion to prove the two "proofs" above, is the fact that if it wasn't the move, how could have Conway moved so smoothly underwater without any kind of breathing devices? I think that this could be explained that Floatzel used the move Dive, which would allow its Trainer to breath underwater, much like in the games. (If you're thinking that this way of moving could be because of Conway's creepy ways of appearing and disappearing, I think that moving under water is out of limits even for him without something like this.)

Hope you understood my arguments. However, having been around this 'Pedia long enough, I know that this argumenting might have been just as useless as trying to win against Red*. Anyway, I wait for your reply. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:21, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Your argument is good. However, there was this rule on here where if a move isn't commanded or mentioned, then it doesn't count as a move. Most of the actions that happen in the anime are completely different from the games. As for the part where Conway swam underwater without any breathing devices, that should be considered cartoon physics as it would have been impossible for someone in real life to do so, nothing about Conway being creepy or anything.

re: PPM

those three pokemon belong to a guy who is owning a bicycle shop. his bicycle shop is right next to rydel's, and is filled with customers, while rydel's has no customers. they can be considered rival. most of the time pikachu uses a move, the name is not announced. so we do not really know if it is thundershock or thunderbolt. but i can try to check it out. -Pokeant (talk) 11:33, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

I had updated the dp characters. rowan does not own the Cranidos. -Pokeant (talk) 05:12, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Alright. As for the moves in Japanese, I usually check back here to confirm which is which. Little piece of trivia, the Sinnoh starters marks the second time that Professor Oak was giving away from another region. PattyMan 05:21, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
in that chapter, he is not shown giving away any of the starters. he keep it in his house in sinnoh, just like plusle and minum in his house in hoenn. he has too many house i think. -Pokeant (talk) 08:39, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Ken

Heya! I don't mind creating the article myself, I was just wondering if you knew for sure if his Japanese name was also Ken. I'm pretty sure it would be since in the French version (which is what I have) pretty much every single other human character keeps their Japanese name (Shū, Rin and Ran, Shinji, etc) but i don't know for sure just because...i don't know XD --ZestyCactus 04:44, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

I would say have Ken's Japanese name kept as Ken due to their naming pattern. Shinji's article should be created as well. Both of these characters must be Shū's other rivals due to the roles they played in. PattyMan 04:50, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
I know for sure Shinji is a reoccuring rival character, he definitely needs his own article. Not sure if Ken ever reappears in the later volumes but you know what if we can have articles like Ryōma then we can have an article for Ken XD --ZestyCactus 04:59, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Perfect :). Ken could be more of a minor rival if he only made one appearance. PattyMan 05:04, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Images

I often see your name in the images of episodes titles and I have to say you're good at uploading, could you tell me the source of that images without logo and at high quality. I've thinking in uploading new images for Advanced Generation episodes because some simply don't match the title. The (in my opinion) best example: Poetry Commotion, I haven't watched the episode but I saw the history of the previous images and I believe it can be better. And I intend to not stop there, there is a scene in Tough, Rough Jigglypuff that I believe it is perfect for May's Muchlax article. So, will you tell me?--Igor (talk) 22:38, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

I got them as my own screenshots. You can try filb.de since they will allow you to use their images (minus the ones with their logo). PattyMan 00:03, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, but what do you mean "I got them as my own screenshots."?--Igor (talk) 15:02, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
It means that I took pictures of them. PattyMan 18:40, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
You mean by "Print Screen"? If you do, where do you get them? You do it online or you download the episode?--Igor (talk) 20:44, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
I mean by print screen. I get them from online but I can't tell you the site since it is against the rules. PattyMan 21:48, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Event pages

As events are currently being redone and the old year region (ex. Japanese 2005) pages are soon going to be redirected to a disambig page, they don't need the problematic ribbon= link removed as well as any additional relinking from the template being updated.  As it is a very redundant activity that will be resolved once the few remaining pages are relinked. The new language and Generation (ex. Japanese Generation IV) pages are going to need to be updated however. Lady Ariel 05:30, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

The ribbon=no was causing pages to show up in this category which was why I removed them. Since you told me about the pages themselves recieving updates, I won't touch those anymore. PattyMan 05:56, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Random question

Do you happen to have any idea how many chapters are in Pocket Monsters HGSS volume 1?? Thanks. --ZestyCactus 03:59, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I counted twelve. Definitely sure about that. PattyMan 04:12, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Ahhhhhhhh thank you soo much :) i have volume two but not volume one XD --ZestyCactus 04:20, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. PattyMan 04:23, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Glaciate

Let me explain. On here, the wiki, it says Glaciate is a more powerful version of Icy Wind, right? It must've been Glaciate. ~Yveltal-Lugia

While you're on the right track with Glaciate's strength, that doesn't mean that Kyurem used it. Besides, Kyurem could have used Blizzard or Icy Wind since their animations are very similar and even the weaker moves can have strong effects. By the way, if you want to add in a new comment, do so on the bottom of the page instead of the top. PattyMan 21:34, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Random extra spaces

I've noticed you've been adding random extra spaces to articles (example). Why are you doing this? --SnorlaxMonster 04:28, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

I was using a mobile device and copied + pasted the article that you gave me an example of to my notepad in order to relink the images that I moved. For some reason, I don't know how these spaces got there but I didn't press the spacebar to add them in manually. Something must be up (probably the autocorrect I guess), but at least you pointed them out. PattyMan 05:37, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Show Preview; Save Page

Thank you, I already know how that works. If I didn't know how that works, you would be seeing about 20 more recent changes. It wouldn't be the first time that I've typed an entire page full of data or whatever anywhere without saving and what do you know, 3 seconds later it's all gone. So I just add stuff in sections, next time I'll just click "minor changes" so you can hide it.Raykyogrou0 (talk) 02:10, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I understand what happens when a page of data gets lost without saving. In that case, I would recommend typing the data on an external device such as NotePad or a Word processor first and then get it on the desired page. PattyMan 02:25, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
