Hey buddy !!!

Hey buddy, can you please tell me the name of that book or magazine in which you saw that Zoey's Gastrodon news. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 05:17, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Sure thing! The book is ポケットモンスターダイヤモンド・パールまるわかりじてん; its ISBN number is 978-4097510345, and it's available to order on It's actually a board book (like the kind made for toddlers, so that they can chew on the book or whatever without doing any serious damage), but it's pretty neat. :3 梅子 05:51, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot buddy. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 10:45, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Your Userpage

Just wanted to say, it looks awesome! Nice work ;) Blake Talk·Edits 16:17, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Haha, thanks! Good to know that the overwhelming pink doesn't put off everyone. XD 梅子 16:32, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
I've also liked it much! :D Also, I'm now following you in twitter :) - RikkiKitsune 17:03, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

it kinda should belong in the special abilities section though. i mean i get what you're saying, but is there anyway that stuff can be there? people dont read the trivia anyway when they're looking for the abilities of Pokémon (; - unsigned comment from TheLastCharmander (talkcontribs)

You're userpage looks quite amazing, how do you get all of them boxes and such though? - unsigned comment from ShinyGlaceon (talkcontribs)

Which boxes do you mean? You could look at the coding (by clicking "edit this page" at the top) to see if you can figure out how it all works; if you can't figure it out, tell me what you don't understand and I'll try explaining.
Anyway, on another note, please sign comments with four tildes (~~~~), not the {{unsigned}} template. Thanks! 梅子 01:22, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Pretty much the Pokemon trainer boxes and grouping segments for each section into a box and such. Also userboxes? Don't quite understand those as much either. =[ Sorry if it's a bother I ask so much. ShinyGlaceon 01:25, 15 February 2010 (UTC)ShinyGlaceon

Userboxes are simple enough - just put {{User [Whatever]}}, like {{User Likes Blue}} or {{User HeartGold}}. Browse through the various user tags to see what's there for you to use.
Trainer boxes, like these? I basically (very heavily) modified the {{Party}} template. Take a look at this for an example of how to use that template.
To group everything into boxes I just put everything into a huge table - take a look at the code of my page to see how I did it, but in its most basic form a table is coded something like so:
| cell one
| cell two
| cell three
| cell four
Which ends up looking like this:
cell one cell two
cell three cell four
Hope this helps? 梅子 02:49, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Still a bit confusing but I'll figure it out. :P ShinyGlaceon 15:59, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

One last question. how did you get the userboxes like that so they only appear when you hit a show button? ShinyGlaceon 15:50, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Pokédex entry

Can you create a user template for this? As in, User:Umeko/Pokédex? That could possibly be used in the mainspace. Maybe. When you're done, talk to Nate. ht14 02:10, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

You mean the one at the very top of my userpage? 梅子 02:17, 15 October 2009 (UTC)
Yup. ht14 02:17, 15 October 2009 (UTC)
Sure, I'll try! I still don't completely understand how to make templates (the only one I've made so far has been Template:User PokéWalker), but this should be a good opportunity to learn. :) 梅子 02:21, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

In case you're wondering

Next time, if the conversation starts on your user talk page, leave it there. Anyhow, it's not the main thing I wanted to talk about. Here. This may help you in your edits. It's specifically designed for those who have "nothing to do" on the wiki. ht14 03:39, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

You mean me commenting on your talk page? Ah, I kind of felt like that was sort of a different conversation than the one above... kind of. And I wasn't sure if you'd see it if I edited my talk... But thanks for the link! 梅子 03:42, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Latest usertag

I'm guessing you hadn't seen {{User Dex Count}}? It's kinda the same thing as what you just made. —darklordtrom 05:08, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Oh no, I totally did, I just wanted to make it more customizable? Just for my own use. ...That's okay, right? D: 梅子 05:12, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Of course, but we'd have totally let you the regulation one as well if you wanted. Provided it didn't kill any pages, of course. —darklordtrom 05:15, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
fffffffffff *flails* But I've just barely been here a month I feel like I'm not... established enough to ask something like that XD;;;; 梅子 05:21, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
*Gives Official Trom Badge of Honor* Knock yourself out. I trust you. —darklordtrom 05:30, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Aww, I'm honored. :'D Maybe I'll do that tomorrow, after a good night's sleep. I'm about to collapse on my keyboard. 梅子 05:34, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

*thumbs up*

Awesome job with all the music stuff. Keep it up. I'd give you a Golden Chatot if we had one ;) --electAbuzzzz 15:05, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Aww, thanks! :'D I really enjoy lyric translation, and I have a huge collection of Pokemon CDs, so I'm more than happy to share what I can. \o/! (Natsu deSUKA? translation is almost done; it's kind of a tough one. XD) 梅子 15:20, 21 October 2009 (UTC)


Wait until the other person replies and (dis)agrees before promptly editing that page. In other words, wair for a response before moving on. Thanks.ht14 04:28, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Er, sorry. I just kind of thought that since it was a fact, that there wasn't much reason to wait for a response? I'll keep that in mind for future reference. 梅子 04:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Userspace Box

Yuck, really? Well, that's been there for a while, but I suppose I'll get rid of it. Thanks for the heads-up. LordArceus 01:33, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Uh, that is, tomorrow. Two User edits and a Project edit, so I'm capped for the day. LordArceus 01:34, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

My Edit Summaries

Can you give me examples? CuboneKing 21:02, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

That would mean digging around in your contribs, and honestly I can think of a few better things to do with my time. XD It's just something that I've noted idly while cruising the RC, and I thought it would be worth it to point it out. 梅子 21:04, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Anyway, thanks for the catch. CuboneKing 21:05, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Translation help

What does よみがえる伝説 mean? MaverickNate 14:05, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

"Revived legend"... or actually it's in non-past tense, so it would be "reviving legend" I suppose. What's the context? 梅子 17:10, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Next TCG set MaverickNate 20:42, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Ahh. Yeah, I guess I'd go with something along the lines of "Reviving Legends" then. 梅子 23:01, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Color category descriptions

Why did you remove my color category descriptions on the List of Pokémon by color article? I personally think it makes the article more informative. Andros 1337 18:24, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

I didn't think they were necessary, and when I asked the Echidna-in-Chief, he agreed and gave me the go-ahead to remove them. 梅子 19:09, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Friend Code

I regestered your HeartGold Friend Code on my Pearl game. My friend code is 0947 2869 1878. Give me a shout when you wanna trade or battle! User:????? I did too! But I need to find out what my code is. When I do, I'l put it here. Just so you know, my platinum sucks. But I'm getting better.--user 02:03, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

HGSS Pokédex entries

I don't know if you're somewhat in charge of this right now but shouldn't the HGSS Dex entries be listed as "Currently unknown" or in Japanese with monospaced English (through the tt element)? It's because I'm seeing lots of Pokémon articles with the HGSS entries in English, making those unaware to think that the games' English versions have been released. =S Pokemon lover 19:01, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Haha, I'm not in charge of anything, but I can answer your question. The HGSS entries for Gen III and IV Pokemon are being listed with {{tt}} (or they should be; if they aren't then someone's gonna get a beating). The entries for the Gen I and II Pokemon are exactly the same as they were in Gold and Silver, so those are there in English (fifty bucks says that if NoA does make any changes to their translations, it would be the odd punctuation or grammatical tweaking in maybe two entries). That's how the Dex entries have been since September, the EB has always been in support of that (they can slap me upside the head if I'm misinformed here), and if someone is under the impression that HGSS is released in English simply because there are English Dex entries then I think that's the least of their problems. :P 梅子 19:26, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
I know you aren't in charge, but I think you said that you were going to get the JP Dex entries and translate them to English (using the {{tt}} element, of course), that's why I asked you. ;-) So it seems you're gonna have to beat someone or someones 'cause I might have saw some Gen III & IV Pokémon articles with English Dex entries that weren't following the rules.
And thanks for noticing that stupid mistake on Crystal's article. -______- Pokemon lover 23:22, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I just went over all Generation III & IV Pokémon entries and fixed the perpetrators. It's a good you brought it up too because I was able to fix some of the entries that were wrong >_< ... we still have a bit of work to do to finish the entries off though haha... (Yaminokame 01:42, 5 January 2010 (UTC))
ご苦労さん :P I keep thinking to myself that I should translate some more entries... but then I look over at the Kanto-side guidebook/Pokedex and the size of the thing just makes me shudder. 8D;; 梅子 01:45, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
haha ;) Unfortunately I don't have that much time to fill them in right now with the English translations, but I can try to move over the dex entries that I filled in on the ポケモンWiki Pokémon pages at least for right now :p ... that should at least get that out of the way so we can continue the fun part and hopefully finish them all off haha ^^ (Yaminokame 06:33, 5 January 2010 (UTC))
I'm glad I could help. =) Pokemon lover 21:20, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

User talk:Animelover0018

Sooo... yeah. I didn't get an edit conflict or anything, so sorry about that. And I didn't get one for when CK reverted it either, even though I was trying to revert it at the same time as him. R.A. Hunter Blade 05:12, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

OP13 image

Hi there! May I see where this consensus was held? --Nick., something to say? 15:40, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Over AIM. 梅子 16:31, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Um. I'd just like to say that it's better if it were a public consensus. I have no problems with it anyway, just thought the other one reflected more the spirit of the OP and not just a random shot of legendaries. --Nick., something to say? 00:26, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Most of the admins were there at the time, as well as TTE. If something has happened "over AIM", then it's been approved by multiple EB members, admins, etc.--RexRacer 00:34, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Nate was too - he specifically told me to revert it, actually - and he's EiC of the Archives. (And btw Japanese fans have nicknamed the new OP "Legendary Pokemon Bargain Sale," so a random shot of legendaries is totally relevant.) 梅子 00:35, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm not thinking you lied or something. I just think that this kind of things should be public - if anyone have doubts, then it's open for him to find out what happened.--Nick., something to say? 02:02, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Image reversion policy. ie. if an image gets reverted it's pretty safe to assume that's what happened: it was passed by an admin (or several) and approved. 梅子 02:08, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
It's alright then. Missed the article since I left this wiki a long time ago. Sorry for everything, btw --Nick., something to say? 02:13, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Shudo's novelizations

Hello, Umeko! Are you going to keep updating the notes about Shudo's novelizations of the anime? They are truly interesting.

Guille Skye 16:28, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I will, I just haven't had the time to read more. Life has been busy. :D;; 梅子 16:31, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon Mobile System

Hi Umeko. =) Can you translate me this, please? It's because the only information that Google Translator gave me that I fully comprehended was that the service was shut down on December 14, 2002. Pokemon lover 17:17, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I would love to translate that... in five hours. Stupid work computers don't display Japanese text. *shakes fist* 梅子 17:31, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
They must be running Windows XP. But don't mind with that, I'm not in a hurry. ;-)
BTW, can you tell me your country's time zone? Just for curiosity. Mine's WET. Pokemon lover 17:43, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Haha, well I run XP at home too. They just don't have Japanese fonts installed here. (Btw, if you find someone else willing to translate before I get home, don't wait for me or anything. XD)
I'm in EST. :) 梅子 18:19, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, so basically that page says that, as was announced in May 2002, The Gameboy Mobile System shut down on December 14, 2002, and it thanks everyone for using it. There is a note, however, that players of Pokemon Crystal will still be able to trade and battle with friends using the mobile system. 梅子 23:14, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Thx. =) BTW, do you know what the DION was? I googled it and found this. It seems to have been some sort of service provider, that was also discontinued, more precisely 4 days after the Mobile System was shut down. Pokemon lover 13:41, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Looks like it's an internet connection service. 梅子 16:54, 9 January 2010 (UTC)


I notice you've been updating the PokéGods page. I was wondering why you were doing so, and where you've been getting your information, if anywhere other than your head. Redstar 18:03, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Why: Because it was a huge phenomenon back in the day, and thus a notable part of the fandom's history.
Where: Ugly-ass fansites created in 1998-2000.
I really should get back to that article though, I kind of left it half-finished. 梅子 18:07, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Just curious. It's just a bit coincidental that this page has begun being updated simultaneously as the only definitive PokeGod page on the Internet, so I wanted to be sure no theft was involved. Carry on. Redstar 18:29, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Translation and confirmation

Please and thank you in advance.darklordtrom 13:36, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

According to the article on the Japanese wiki, the bulletin boards were shut down on December 31st (which I did notice before), and that in the last third of the month updates to the site will become irregular.
On the Pokeani site itself, all I've found is that updates will temporarily come to a halt in mid-January. 梅子 19:32, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Hold on, I just noticed this page on Pokeani.
Thanks for always accessing this site.
Due to personal reasons, by the end of December, this site's (Pokeani's) updates will be temporarily halted.
I am not thinking of closing the site itself. But for a short while from now on, I will mostly have no time to update the site, and even watching (or recording) the anime on Thursdays will be difficult (so quick updates will be impossible). There are various reasons, and this is what I've decided.
At this point in time, I don't know when I'll be able to resume updates. I'll probably resume when things calm down. However, I'm expecting that even after reopening, it will be difficult to return to the site's current update style, so I'm considering switching over to being a wiki site.
Also, for purely my own convenience I will be closing all the bulletin boards and polls by the end of December. (Because I really can't moderate them from now on.)
Yup. There's something on the front page that implies that updates are planned to resume around spring or summer, though. 梅子 19:47, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Cheers, Ume. —darklordtrom 21:50, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Great job, ume. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 03:47, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Game art

Not sure how much you know of this, but what do you make of this? We don't have that image in the Archives, and I'm wondering if it was released with certain games, like say FR/LG. ht14 22:42, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Huh. If I were to guess, I'd say it looks like something that would have possibly been put up on the Game Freak blog (or something similar)? I've never seen it before though. 梅子 22:45, 17 January 2010 (UTC)


I think this has practically no info... so help... do you have the game? ht14 15:15, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Battrio is an arcade game; I imagine that it would be insanely expensive to import one. :P I plan on (hopefully) trying it out when I'm in Japan in March, but I will not be able to offer any information before then. 梅子 19:56, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Ok, but I guess you could say I'm focusing a lot on the chips. ht14 21:34, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. Well that, too, will have to wait until March, as I'm saving my money to blow in Japan rather than blow now and have to pay overseas shipping, haha. 梅子 21:37, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Charizard offical Sugimori's art

Well the real Sugimori's art is the picture with the real colors, the image before than this one. The another one is only a fanart.

Pedraito 21:15, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

...No. The other one is Sugimori's art, with the colors corrected a bit. It is not fanart. 梅子 21:17, 31 January 2010 (UTC)


No... Sugimori colored Charizard with these color. No with new color! The offical site of pokemon the color not are this .I prefer the new color but the REAL COLORS is the before. The image must be change!

Pedraito 21:47, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

The current art sure is fan-made. Look at Charizard's art on both TPC's and TPCi's online Dexes. ;-) ポケモンあいこうか 18:34, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh boy, I'm so excited that this debate has made it back to my talkpage!
Let me get the appropriate parties to explain it to you. 梅子 22:06, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
It's not fanmade. It's just badly color-corrected. TTEchidna 22:11, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Either way it was altered. I don't know why there was need for correction anyway but it's your choice after all. IMO, this is more of the "OMG! CHARIZARDZ LOOKZ BETTERZ!" reaction people will get than anything else. Same goes for Charmander. ポケモンあいこうか 14:09, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Sigh... okay, please read here. I suggest reading it all, but if you decide not to, the basic gist of it is that Game Freak saved the images as CMYK (cyan-magenta-yellow-black) because the images were intended for printed material. Official sites have used those images as-is instead of converting them to RGB (red-green-blue) for computer displays, so they do not look as they should. The images on the archives are being converted from CMYK to RGB, so that they display on computers as they were meant to be. 梅子 15:49, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
OK, I now know that the artwork is being converted, not altered. If so, I don't have a problem with it. Just a question, though, color correction is not considered fanart in any circumstance, correct? I'm just asking to avoid future complaints. ;-) ポケモンあいこうか 16:14, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Honestly, I can't imagine how color correction could ever be fanart in the first place. I guess the definition of "fanart" is up to personal interpretation, but in my opinion I've always figured that fanart meant... actually drawing (or painting, or whatever) something from one's own imagination, just using characters from another person's work (eg. drawing Charizard in a pose imagined up by the fanartist him/herself). Buuuut then we could also get into a debate into what art is in general, and that's a whole other can of worms that I'd rather not touch. 梅子 16:20, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
The only reason why I called it fanart in the first place was due to my unawareness of the process being used. But since some people may not have figured that out yet, I was just trying to clear any doubts left. ポケモンあいこうか 16:26, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

So then you're just stalking my activity then? Heh. She herself also admitted it was auburn as far as she was concerned. Why is it you insist on keeping information that is clearly not correct? Getsuei 06:52, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

I was watching the Recent Changes, as I usually do. I was not stalking you specifically. 梅子 06:54, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Well you could've fooled me. Still, I don't appreciate the attitudes of the people on this wiki. I've been disagreed with on other wiki sites, but my god this wiki is ridiculous. Everyone here seems to think the same. Agree with us or give up. Majority rules in any case. Getsuei 06:57, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
As you've mentioned several times before, these characters' hair colors are never explicitly stated in canon, and thus the colors listed are merely opinion - and the opinion that we go with is the one that the majority agrees on. Just because you believe your opinion is "fact" does not make it so; it is still opinion, and an unpopular one at that. If we succumb to one person who disagrees, we will then be bombarded with complaints from... everyone else. So yes. Majority rules. 梅子 07:05, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Doesn't seem to justify it to me. And while in some cases I would see how without statements my opinion is just that, I don't base my opinion on just that, I base it on what I know to be fact. It is not my opinion his hair is clearly a shade of orange, it is not my opinion his hair is not brown. It's just simply so. If it were stated his hair was brown, I would honestly have never thought to argue in the first place. It is just unfortunate I had to argue with people who were clearly not knowledgeable enough on the subject. Getsuei 07:08, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, well unfortunately my major in school is game development, not hair chromatology. 梅子 07:11, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, well that's a little obvious for me. I think we're done here. :) Getsuei 07:17, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I do believe you are done here. 梅子 07:18, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

HeartGold/SoulSilver Parties

I love your HeartGold and SoulSilver party page. It looks so nice. I was wondering if you mind if I used the same style? --HoennMaster 05:53, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Sure, go ahead. :D 梅子 07:10, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank You! :) --HoennMaster 07:59, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
On your template you use the color codes (likes #FFBBDD for pink), where do you get the codes for the colors, I've been looking all over and can't find them. --HoennMaster 21:53, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Try here. 梅子 21:54, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
And thanks again! --HoennMaster 22:09, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

French versions of HeartGold and SoulSilver coming out in Canada

Just learned something weird. Canadians will not only have the English North American version, but also the French(from France) versions availlable for both games. However, the names will NOT be 'Coeur doré' or 'Âme argentée' but will be 'Or Heartgold' and 'Argent SoulSilver'. Maybe this trivia should be added to the HGSS game page(which is protected so only admins can edit.) The Canadian French version is the exact same as the one released in France.Here are the images from Toys R Us Canada : TokoyamiTheDark 19:52, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Umm, okay. I'm not an admin though, so I suggest you ask one of them to handle this. :D;; 梅子 19:53, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
So basically, Canada is now getting the French versions too, right? The French names for the games are already known and Canada is getting the European French version, not a Canadian French one, much like the UK receives the USA version, only with possible mistakes fixed (e.g.: Mawile's name incorrectly spelled Mawhile in its Pokédex entry in USA RS). ;-) And I'm not counting the censorship the European versions have suffered since Platinum. ポケモンあいこうか 21:58, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Can I have My userspace privelages back? I won't Edit it too often. I also edited the mainspace as much as I could. If I find anything I can edit I will.-DialgaMaster105 *Roar Of Time!!!* 18:11, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Dude, I'm not an admin. I wouldn't have the power to give you your privileges back even if you did deserve them. 梅子 18:32, 28 February 2010 (UTC)


He he thanks. I didn't take much notice of the event Pokémon template =P たかはりい talk 01:30, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh by the way, what do you think of this?? たかはりい talk 01:33, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Aesthetically, the back text on medium purple is a little eye-hurty. As for whether such a template is needed... that's being debated. 梅子 01:39, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
PS, I'm not an admin, in case you thought I was. So my opinion on the necessity doesn't count much. XD 梅子 01:41, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Alright, cool. Thanks for that =D (and I can always fix the background colour) たかはりい talk 01:44, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Your Pichu Usertag

Hi, I noticed that you edited the usertag on my page. You don't mind that I took it from your profile, do you? I couldn't find anything else for Pikachu Colored Pichu. If you do mind, I can take it off, however. By the way, why does everyone think that you are an admin, lol? I did at first as well, because I misread one of your usertags. Littlmiget123 02:58, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Haha, nope, I don't mind at all. :3 I edited it because the template was moved from my userspace into the template namespace, and the redirect on my userspace needed to be deleted. :P
As for why people think I'm an admin... I have no idea. Because I edit a lot, because I know the rules, because I'm friends with the real admins...? Hell if I know. \o/ 梅子 03:01, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay, because I meant to ask you if I could use it, but it totally slipped my mind, sorry for... plagarizing (that's what it is, right?). I also thought you were an admin because you have a really tricked out user page, and alot of admins have different usser pages. Thank you for letting me use it, again, I'm sorry! Littlmiget123 03:05, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

What does eメールをうけとるか きめる properly translate to? ポケモンあいこうか 21:35, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

"Do you decide to receive the email?" for lack of a less-awkward way to accurately word it. I'm assuming this is game text? 梅子 22:13, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it's the second e-mail option in JpPtHGSS, considering you successfully registered your e-mail address. ;-) ポケモンあいこうか 22:20, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Problem with Team Template

Hi! I just LOVE your party template :D It's so colourful and pretty! So i take this to make my own, but there are some problems...the overworld sprite of Palkia and Pelipper doesn't show, and i don't understand how to show that my Froslass arrived from Hoenn by Pal Park..i hope you can help me :)

Good Bye, and keep working! --Crikko 18:13, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Not all of the overworld sprites have been uploaded yet; Palkia and Pelipper both fall under the "haven't-gotten-around-to-making-and-uploading" category. As for the Pal Park thing, I'm not sure if I actually have that option built in... 梅子 18:19, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Just uploaded them for you :) Jello 18:20, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Both of you very nice and kind :D For the problem with Pal Park data, i control the template data you have made, and the option arrived from exists, but i can't realize how to show it...thank you so much =)--Crikko 21:26, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

when you get online...

I need the following translated:

I have no idea how those long lines of text are supposed to be separated (as in which parts are descriptors of other parts or wtf I don't even know D8) so I just translated it straight. Hope this helps more than it confuses. :P 梅子 17:37, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Project Games

It seems that only the game infobox template is still kind of... old fashioned. As you are the project leader now, can you tell whether this would be good enough? A few changes here and there and it should be good enugh for use. What do you think? --Sher-e-Bengal- 11:38, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply; I wasn't ignoring you, really! XD I just needed to find something and I couldn't for the life of me remember where it was.
Anyway, it looks like we already have a new infobox made up for games, though it hasn't been implemented yet (presumably because emot-effort.gif). The way I see it, there are pros and cons to both yours and Buzz's, but what do you think? :/ 梅子 03:43, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply on my turn now (stupid internet connection). Well, I think Buzz's the better one to look at. As for the effort, I think I will be able to put in a lot of effort in changing the templates now if my stupid modem doesn't do any more stupid things... So, should we start changing them? --Sher-e-Bengal- 08:09, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Hmm... I'd like to hold off at least a few more days. My main concern with Buzz's template is that the game pairs with red/green or red/blue color schemes are just really eye-hurty. (Diamond and Pearl's colors are questionable... I think they look fine on my laptop, but on this computer it's just the teeniest bit of a pain to look at.) I've been trying to think of some sort of way to get around that, haha...
On the other hand, it's not like {{GenInfo}} is much better in that regard... hmm.
Anyway, now that you've reminded me of the template it's been bumped up to near the top of my to-do list. Your help in implementing it once it's totally finalized would be greatly appreciated though - spring fever seems to have hit me pretty hard, and I've got a bunch of make-up schoolwork to do if I want to graduate next month.

Were the place, the maid, the butler named? tc²₆tc26 03:20, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

I'll have to check on the place name, but the maid/attendant/whatever was named Freesia (フリージア). The butler is credited simply as "butler" (執事). 梅子 03:27, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm just curious

Why is Pikachu written like that? Does it have a different meaning? --Midnight Blue 03:40, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon dialogue is very often written in hiragana - I suppose to differentiate between the actual names and the Pokemon "language," so to speak. 梅子 03:42, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Ok, good to know if I see anything like that again.--Midnight Blue 03:44, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Battle Hall

Hey Umeko, what Pokémon and Moveset did you use to beat the Battle Hall? --HoennMaster 18:39, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Uhh, this isn't exactly the place for this. But I used my Jolteon, who (at the time) had the moves Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, some physical attack that I never used and later got rid of because her attack stat is crap, and Baton Pass (which obviously I didn't use either). 梅子 20:02, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Tea Party in Ranger 3

Could you please elaborate on what exactly this is? Needless to say, it surprised me to see it in the page. --The Great Butler 02:50, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Tea Party is a small organization (a group of four certain people) who oversee the Pokemon Nappers' activities - they have superiority over even Purple Eye, making them the true leaders of the Nappers. There is, in fact, one person among those four who unquestionably is the leader of Tea Party (and thus of the Nappers), but since it's a huge spoiler I thought it would be more appropriate to add the name of the group in the "Leader" section of the Pokemon Nappers infobox. (I'm assuming here that the page you're referring to is Pokémon Nappers...)
I've been wanting to get a text dump of Ranger 3 so that I could write up detailed and accurate articles about characters and groups like Tea Party - I certainly can't remember everything that was stated in-game, especially when there's a bit of a language barrier there - but so far my attempts have been unsuccessful, so... 梅子 05:39, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
That's actually really interesting. I wonder who the leader is. Thanks for telling me this. --The Great Butler 03:06, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Yeah it was bad. It was squashed down. --HoennMaster 19:39, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Anime Staff, Pokémon senryū‎ and Quiz

Hi Umeko, sorry to bother you. I wanted to add the Pokémon senryū‎ and Quiz from this wiki: アニメスタッフデータベース, which also has articles for the Johto, Orange Islands, Advanced Generation and Diamond & Pearl sagas. But I couldn't find what kind of license it uses, to see if we can use this information here. Do you have any idea? Thanks ^^--KurowaSan 07:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm not immediately finding anything, I'll have to poke around a little more later. If it comes down to it I'll try to find a contact email and ask.
Btw, love your username. 梅子 12:16, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, Umeko! o/--KurowaSan 16:48, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey Ume

I'm currently adding the Oblivia browser number to the disambiguation number pages. Was wondering if I should add the numbers for Oblivia (past) as well. Don't see anyone else online right now, so that's why I'm asking, haha. Jello 23:20, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... I say go for it. If someone objects later for whatever reason, they can always just be removed. 梅子 23:24, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
So, apart from the present numbers, should the past Oblivia numbers be added too? Jello 23:40, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. If we have the present ones, might as well have the past ones. The missions in the past are ridiculously more difficult than the main storyline, anyway. :V 梅子 23:43, 3 May 2010 (UTC)


You should probably try to incorporate the picture from this post into the page you're making up. --Archaic 05:23, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

I was thinking of linking that entire thread as an external link, actually, but I suppose that image would be a good addition too. XD 梅子 05:25, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

that Lapras

I got a much much bigger scan of the card; I think the dex entry is from SoulSilver. Mind getting the text from it and put it in the appropriate place on the page? MaverickNate 14:47, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Done. \o/ You prefer using half-width spaces to full-width ones, right? 梅子 20:31, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Only for ones that actually do that on the card: which is everything after Diamond & Pearl. MaverickNate 21:23, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
