Issue regarding Japanese and English differences

Before I begin, draw your attention to Aquapolis and Skyridge. Due to the fact that they differed greatly from the Japanese sets (i.e. two Japanese sets to one English set), they have separate pages. What I'd like to do is give Great Encounters and Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash separate pages. The two Japanese subsets wouldn't have separate pages, they'd be on one page. Same for Pokémon Card Game DP5. That's what's gonna cause problems in the end - Japanese DP4 and DP5 make up our DP4, DP5 and DP6. They simply have to have separate pages. I'd like to set up a draft Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash page in my userspace to show you what I mean, which I will do over the weekend. Double Dash 16:10, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't know...Weren't you the one who badly merged Shining Darkness and Secret Wonders? The proper way to do it would have been to merge the information into the former--you did it into the latter--and then ask a sysop to move the former to the latter. Granted, this idea sounds better than that botched plan...--Shiningpikablu252 16:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I get that these are clearly important pages, and as such, I'd be more than willing to take my time, create two pages in my userspace - one for Japanese DP4 and one for Great Encounters - ensure everything's perfect, get you to check them over first, then I'd put them in the main wikispace. The only issue I have is the Japanese set's page name - I don't know if it should be "Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash", "Moon Hunting/Night Dashing" or "Pokémon Card Game DP4". Or something else. Once I know that, I can start. Double Dash 18:42, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Edit: By the way, I didn't botch up that page change. Nuva-kal moved the Shining Darkness content to a new Secret Wonders page and I supported the decision. Could have been done a bit better, yes, but I'd have done it differently. (I think that's how it went, looking at page histories.) 18:47, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
That sounds feasible, and I'm with you here, but you might want to run it past a few sysops first. I wouldn't want to make an unpopular change without additional backup. --Shiningpikablu252 21:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Looks as though the Great Encounters page can't be edited at the moment, so I'm gonna make another page in my userspace (User:Double Dash/TCG/Great Encounters) with all the necessary changes in. Feel free to take the source from there once it's completed. Double Dash 15:34, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Oh, Double Dash, about it being Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash instead of Moon Hunting/Night Dashing..."night dashing" is a pretty damn incorrect translation, so I up and changed them.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 05:47, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
In that case, I guess the page will be Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash (TCG) then, thanks for that. :) Double Dash 13:10, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Both pages are now up, at Great Encounters (obviously, has been completely rewritten) and Moonlit Pursuit/Dawn Dash. I've also taken the liberty of completing all GE pages by adding theme deck images to its theme deck pages. Double Dash 16:56, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
