I hit an edit conflict with you twice, and the second said inuse. Do you mind if I save an edit, then you continue. If its been over an hour, disregard this message. --SnorlaxMonster 05:13, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah go for it, sorry D; --ZestyCactus 05:15, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
You actually did pretty much everything I was going to, but I'll save the few differences there were. --SnorlaxMonster 05:16, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Great minds think alike, I suppose ;) --ZestyCactus 05:17, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
After the first conflict, I had a bit I wanted to change. After the second one, only this little bit was left. Also, were you thinking of breaking the article off away from Glitches? If so, we think too much alike. --SnorlaxMonster 05:20, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I had thought about it before, especially after the second gen stuff was added, but I decided it was fine for now. But 8F Way added a crapton of stuff and now I think it's definitely enough to flesh out into a full article. I'm actually almost done proofreading, could you hold off for a few more minutes? --ZestyCactus 05:29, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
K I'm done for now. Go for it :) --ZestyCactus 05:40, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Ok, it's fine. -Full ofQuestions

I did send them a talk page message.... --ZestyCactus 21:50, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Links to some Pokémon food products that could be added...

I was searching for further Pokémon food products to add whilst browsing, and found this link ( (which contains M&M-like candy), along with this ( Would you be able to help me find and add suitable, standard-format information about them to the article? (Usually, I would be able to do it without assistance, but lately it seems I have been suffering from a lack of self-confidence on Bulbapedia, probably caused by the HG/SS Server Overload gap.) Steph 22:24, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I can poke around the net for a little bit and maybe write some stuff up. I totally know what you mean re: confidence, I've been finding it hard/weird to get back into editing :S --ZestyCactus 01:28, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Pokéwalker Edits

Thanks for the feedback, I've modified the copy to omit "you", "your" ~ and thanks for the welcome! <3 - unsigned comment from Suffen (talkcontribs)

If you can edit this

Then you're good. Congratulations. TTEchidna 04:39, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! :D --ZestyCactus 04:41, 20 May 2010 (UTC)


Hi!. I see that you erased my addition to Bronzong’s article. I’d like to justify it. I took it from [[1]]. From my point of view it is notable because it explains: why a mirror evolves into a bell, its ability (Heatproof), why Bronzong is a Psychic-type (the spirit of the woman), its Diamonf Pokédex entry (One caused a news sensation when it was dug up at a construction site after a 2000-year sleep). I’d like to know the reason behind your deletion. --Siegfried 20:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

I erased it because I found your explanation of the legend was quite long, yet did not explain why it relates to Bronzong (your justification makes enough sense, but its not neccessarily obvious). I suppose its ok to include in the article if you make it clearer how it relates to Bronzong (and try not to make it too long plz D:). There isn't a wikipedia article on it (or something) that you could link to, is there? --ZestyCactus 20:55, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, I tried to summarize to the bones the original text to emphasize only the notable informations. I actually avoided on purpose to make links to Heatproof, Bronzor and so on because I didn't want to be too pedantic, but it seems I turned too esoteric instead... I actually don't know how to make it shorter without spoiling it (it's just a little more than 3 lines), but if you have any idea, feel free to edit it. The source is quite autoritative, being taken from Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things, a famous book by Lafcadio Hearn. As you can see in the article, I've taken it from the Of a Mirror and a Bell story. --Siegfried 21:17, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks ZC.

Thanks for fixing the link on my userpage, Zesty. It's nice to have people other than me going to it. ^_^ --Mackinz of SoulSilver 07:15, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit: oops, sorry. Forgot my signature x.x --Mackinz of SoulSilver 07:15, 4 June 2010 (UTC)


There is enough information in the article but do you think you need something else? if there are more things to add, I think the only thing left is do a review (from you) of grammar and spelling, but then other details then postulate for featured article. --Toonamimaniacolatino 17:17, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Help me please, is urgent. --Toonamimaniacolatino 21:55, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, but please do it as soon as possible. I want this article be a featured article but what I have said before and I have no idea what to do. --Toonamimaniacolatino 16:38, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea, but in the case of dubbing of those movies in Argentina is complicated that we only know that these movies are dubbed in that country but we know for sure the voice actors for each character in them. --Toonamimaniacolatino 18:11, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
It looks good, but I was thinking that part of what they had said in the discussion about the large number of external links and names are in bold, do you think that you can greatly reduce that? I was thinking too well and I think is right in saying there are several pictures of the voice actors, I think we should leave the paper the images of the most important voice actors what do you think? --Toonamimaniacolatino 18:29, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good and I think there is no choice. --Toonamimaniacolatino 02:50, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello. Please do not forget to help me with the item. Not much time left. --Toonamimaniacolatino 16:28, 31 July 2010 (UTC)


Notices go above categories. Categories are the second to last thing on a page, followed by interwiki links. MaverickNate 21:14, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the heads up! I'd actually misspelled my 'original' link and didn't realize it, haha. - unsigned comment from Nikc (talkcontribs)

the manga is only available to the Daisuki Fanclub (or whatever its called) online and therefore would only be availabe online...

the same for battonage I assume...(also I've never heard anything about blazing exploration squad bein more than a one shot) (Ataro 15:01, 7 July 2010 (UTC))

I can't get on AIM right now, I'm at work. D: Is there any way else I can help? --ZestyCactus 20:01, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
I'll be home around six pm (in about two hours) if that's of any use. --ZestyCactus 20:01, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
We were discussing the Platinum/Platina issue, and were going see if you knew, but it seems the problem was taken care of, sorry for the disruption...orz.--Psyライダー 20:05, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Page Reversion

A user has been adding some trivia to city pages that is already included in the name origin section. Can I revert the changes or does an admin need to do so? So far I've seen it on Saffron, Cinnabar, Viridian, and Mahogany.--PhantomJunkie 16:37, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

You can do it yourself if you want, it doesn't really matter. ^^' --ZestyCactus 17:57, 19 July 2010 (UTC)


Why can't I put a spoiler box on it? I WAS DISTURBED BY IT! WHY? - unsigned comment from Gamerater888 (talkcontribs)

I Give up

I'm giving up. I will stop trying to put the spoiler box on. But, tell my why can't I put the spoiler box on? We do it for the shipping pages.Gamerater888 15:25, 22 July 2010 (UTC)


Ok. I'm sorry. But will ask to at least put a spoiler on the pictures. Gamerater888 15:34, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

As to not fill up their talk pages..

Both Suzuran Conference and Shimama are missing their accented é. For Shimama, é is missing in the first sentence of physiology, and for Suzuran Conference, in the second and third paragraphs, respectively. --Green 20:26, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Done, thanks for finding these. --ZestyCactus 20:30, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Volume 8 Viz

You got the copy? Tell me everything. First, did they catch Youngster Joey's name? --Maxim 19:11, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, a comic shop in my city released them early. They did catch Joey's name, and the Sages in Sprout Tower have the same names as in the game too. All of the rounds have different titles from Chuang Yi's version (as was expected), and Gold's Pokémon's nicknames end in -bo instead of -taro (Aibo, Polibo, Exbo, Sunbo). --ZestyCactus 19:50, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

COuld you at least tell us the names? sorry to bother (Ataro 19:53, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

Aibo = Ataro, Polibo = Poltaro, Exbo = Explotaro, Sunbo = Sintaro. --ZestyCactus 19:55, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

I meant the chapters... (Ataro 19:56, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

Oh! lol sorry my bad. CP asked me not to add them to the articles until the 3rd, but here they are:

  • PS092: Who Gives a Hoothoot?
  • PS093: Sneasel Sneak Attack

--ZestyCactus 20:00, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Awesome info, thanks Zesty! --Maxim 20:05, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah, one more thing. In Japanese (Kainen, Mokunen etc.) and Chuang Yi (Painful, Mindful etc.) the Sages' names made a pun, so they wanted to call Gold "Awful" (in Japanese "Nanya-nen" which means "WTF"). What did they try to call him in Viz version, then? --Maxim 20:10, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Well VIZ just grabbed the names of the sages out of the games, so there's no pun to be made and they just say "You shall be called Nanyanen" out of nowhere. o_O i guess they missed that one :P --ZestyCactus 20:14, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
The names in Japanese were grabbed out of the games as well. The thing is, that Japanese give names with meaning even to normal, meaningless trainers. The English game translators don't, they just give random names. But it's good that they're consistent with the game translations. I actually prefer it to some pun. --Maxim 20:16, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Who gives a hoot, Electric Incorporated, Stand by me, Number one Fan, Crocodile Rock, Sunken Treasure, Into the Unknown, Ursa Major, YOu aint nothin's but a hound dog (Cryin' all the time) thats all I got from the puns (Ataro 20:27, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

There's also "Teddiursa's Picnic", which comes from "Teddy Bears' Picnic", a children's song. --ZestyCactus 20:30, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
