Hello, I am new to Bulbapedia, I created a page called Japanese preview, may you please check it out and tell me what you think. If you want you can change or edit it to make it more understanding. pika..pika.... :)

Hey. Saw the message you left on my page. I understand; it just didn't say anything about tests/"studies" being done to prove that. An0nymous 02:18, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi. What do you want me to do differently with the new articles that I create? I read the manuel of style and it didn't get what I should to to make articles that you don't have to clean up. Please tell me. Carnivine 2 March 2007

That friggin' move war

Hello, I am a new user (15 Feb) and I noticed that the dub name of Masago town was Sandgem Town, which I didn't see a source so i moved the page. After a little "move war" a user named Maxim left a note on my user talk.

Idiots! (==)

Because of your stupid move war you completely messed up Sandgem/Masago Redirect! It IS mentioned in Episode. So, there ARE SOURCES! The name is O.F.F.I.C.I.A.L! And stop fighting --Maxim 19:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

After I removed it because I thought it was disresceptful, he left another one

Another fool with oversized ego. You were FIGHTING. Edit fight = VANDALISM! So, I have to respect vandalisms? Since when? This is a wiki. This is not place for fighting. If you want to fight, marry each other. --Maxim 19:32, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

The user is being rude and disresceptful. May you please talk to Maxim and please remove my mistake..

He is. But you're still wrong. Sorry. --Pie ~ 19:52, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Who cares you're a newbie, Johanpika. The one who is guilty is YOU because you started the edit war which is considered as vandalism. I'm sick of your oversized ego. STFU, man! The one who should be permablocked is YOU! --Maxim 19:45, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey! Keep that sort of fighting to your own talk pages. Either kiss and make up or get off my talk page. --Pie ~ 19:52, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Why haven't we done something about Maxim yet? --FabuVinny 23:32, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Good question... what do you suggest? --Pie ~ 23:37, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Eternal ban from the Internet for three years. --Paperfairy 20:17, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Very funny. --Maxim 21:07, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Lets make it five years, then. Carnivine


It is being caused by a bug in my computer. I'm working to fix it. Carnivine

Okay, good. Because it's been annoying me a lot. --Pie ~ 21:14, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm making some progress, however, could you help me and put a "u" on the "Pikach" on my page. My computor won't let me. I can't get the bug out until tommorrow because I need a password to do it and I won't see the person who has it until then. Carnivine
I got it fixed. I can type Pikachu now. Carnivine


How to you revert changes? Carnivine

Editors have a rollback link. I think all users have undo links, though. --Pie ~ 04:02, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Carnivine

How do I figure out how many contributions I have? Must I count them all? Carnivine

Zhen Lin has a database scanning tool for his "Top Contributors" list but you can make at least an estimate by making use of the number of edits displayed on a page to simplify the counting. For the record, you have made 167 edits. (50+50+50+17) --FabuVinny 23:32, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

How do I upload a new image? Carnivine

You have to do it over at the archives. --Pie ~ 18:13, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

The Card Game project

Hey, I was wondering a few things about the Pokémon Trading Card Game project. See, I don't really think we need to sort the cards in the category by the card number. I've been doing my best to avoid them, you see. See, I've been thinking through the aspects of the project for a while now, and I think that it would be a lot easier to make it work if we avoided using the numbers. I believe I have spoken on this before, but using the numbers would make it a lot harder to keep everything from English and Japanese together.

On another note, thanks for making all of those categories for Pokémon in the TCG. Actually, I was thinking of another idea to further categorize them by Pokémon and by name (for such cards as Blaine's Vulpix), but I thought that it might make too many tiny categories. What do you think about categories for specifically named Pokémon, Trainer Cards, and Energy Cards? I'm thinking of having Trainer Cards and the like have separate articles for the Trainer Card's name and prints of the card. So there would be, say, "Bill (TCG)" and "Bill (Base Set)." If a card said something along the lines of "Search your deck for a card named Bill," it would link to "Bill (TCG)," which would list all cards with that name. What do you think of all of this? -Happy Mask Man 02:26, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

We can find alternatives for the Japanese-only cards, sort them into categories with *'s instead of numbers. But overall, given all the other naming and sorting options, the number system is the best one I've seen that makes any sense and is closest to being universal. I really don't think many people distinguish these cards using the levels written on them, you know? So why should we?
I think that might make the categories too small, yes. As far as trainer cards... that's a difficult one. On one hand, we should disambig between any cards with the same name and different text... but not reprints of the same card, like every card in Base Set 2... so I do think we should have trainer cards noted by set. But at the same time, if there's only one version of a card ever - there's no reason for a disambig. Like, for example, if besides reprints there's only one Bill (Base Set), Bill (TCG) should just redirect to that.
Most other people have given up on trying to organize the TCG articles - I believe Zhen confirmed to me that he has over AIM - and I'm one of the few who's still trying to work this out regardless of the giant headache it's giving me. So sorry if I get a little snippy about this, but this really is the most annoying section of the Bulbapedia to organize ever. --Pie ~ 03:16, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Eh, I just prefer the idea of having two set lists in the article on the set and having the category for the set just be organized by alphabetical order. Besides, people usually don't refer to cards by anything but the card's name and set anyway. See, between δ Delta Species Pokémon and the new Pokémon LV.X in the DP series, it seems more convenient to use levels and other universal identification in a particular series. Also, Pokémon Card GB referred to different cards of a Pokémon by their levels.
Really, I have about all of the TCG organization planned out. Level for original series, e-card ID for e-card series. In the advance series, the only cards that have the same name in the same set are cards that were from Japanese decks that were merged into an English set. Oh, and things like Unown. The DP series brings back levels and introduces a new game mechanic based on them. This organization method is based on universalness. It also helps to better organize cards that switch around from set to set from Japanese to English. As for Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection, since they're total reprint sets, I'm not planning on having separate articles for cards reprinted there. I do plan on having articles for other reprints of cards though. Things a reprint of Potion in some set would get a separate article.
The only thing that I haven't been completely sure of is making separate articles for Trainer cards that only get one print as the main article for the card and for its print in a set. I guess that if there's only one print, it could be a redirect... Then again, things like TM06 get their own articles... I'm not too sure on this issue. I have most everything else planned out. I guess it's just a matter of getting everyone to agree now. I really believe that this project can work. -Happy Mask Man 04:31, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Fine. Whatever. I really don't even care anymore. I've been working my butt off trying to find some way to organize that section - I should be glad someone else is taking it on. --Pie ~ 04:34, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Now that I am recategorizing articles, what should I do with the English number for cards that have holo and non-holo versions? -Happy Mask Man 05:47, 20 May 2007 (UTC)


Excuse me admin Pie, but while looking on the block log I noticed that KillerCRS had been blocked one month ago for the same offense he committed today. I suggest perhaps a permablock. Carnivine

Made a mess, help me fix it...

Hi, I left the same message on Fabu-Vinny's page several days ago but apparently he hasn't seen it yet...

I'm really sorry, but it seems I missed a rule and made a tiny mess... I created an article about the song "You & Me & Pokémon", but the 2 "&"s are creating some problems. Can you change it to "and"s please? Thanks!--ElectAbuzzzz 09:33, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Heads up

Dragonite keeps moving pages around, and I'm not sure if they knows what they're doing or not. He moved Blue (game) to Kinkajou for some reason, and now he moved Leaf (game) to Green (game). Just wanted to make you aware. --PAK Man 03:03, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I'm fully aware. -_-' --Pie ~ 03:04, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the help

Thanks for pointing out that the extenal link doesn't need to go there, thanks for the help,


Puedes desbloquear por favor

May you please unblock IP . I am a new user. I don't understand why i'm unblock. May you please tell me why?

Puedes desbloquear IP para satisfacer. Soy un nuevo usuario. No entiendo porque unfreezing. ¿Puedes satisfacer la opinión a mí porque?

There may be hope!

That error in Takeshi's Paradise might not be so bad. It might be retconning but another Seel has been seen at the Cerulean Gym in Chronicles: [1] --FabuVinny T-C-S 11:19, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah. I figure that there's any number of explanations for it - different Seel, Brock forgot, Brock thought Seel looked better with them than Dewgong - but from the most literal view of it, it's an error. ^^o --Pie ~ 14:25, 19 April 2007 (UTC)


I don't know I am new but I tought the game should get some light


never mind i get it i shall not do it again


Hi! I guess someone as technical as you already knows this, but here's a shorter shortcut to "é" you can recommend to other editors: ALT+130 (maybe yours is more correct because of the amount of digits and all that... :S). Also I wonder if there's a way to insert them in Bulbapedia edit fields via a button combination of ALT and some other letter for example. I notice the Manual of Style has a section about "é and other characters", but it doesn't advise how to input them (character palette, ALT, etc.). --Johans 17:49, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Huh, no, I didn't know that. Well, 0233 is sort of already ingrained into my memory.. ^^o As for an even shorter shortcut, if anyone would know, it'd be Zhen, so bug him about the idea. --Pie ~ 18:40, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
