I think this template is stuffing up, look at Diamond and Pearl Versions and the others. Deathgabriel 10:14, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

The new version

I myself think the version I had used was a bit better (and that's not just because I did it myself), as it separated the main series games and the console connectivity games, and it was a bit more colorful. And I think it's beginning to get a little too repetitive...

Plus, the possible DuskGold/DawnSilver versions and the entire Generation V coding in the template was completely gotten rid of. D: ~ overgrownsol 03:45, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Erm, okay, I didn't expect for it to be changed back that quickly. o.o ~ overgrownsol 03:48, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
ExtremeSpeed. i like yours better too. sorry Trom. -- MAGNEDETH 03:50, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
The Generation V/GSDS coding shouldn't be in place until the games are revealed. Having it in the hidden comment means that it is technically included on every page the template is on, although nothing shows up. Mumble mumble server stress.... Also, it isn't hard to just reinsert the coding once the games are official. I'm not sure what Sol means about "repetitive", but the style I had is—yes, different to the original—but similar to the all of the other new templates in that the sections are not broken up into almost "sub templates". Having the console games in a row below the main series also helps save space, but they remain separated. The colors are also somewhat hard to read, I find. Uhm.... I think that was all I wanted to say. — THE TROM — 04:09, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
It's most likely there (I didn't originally put it there, just updated it) because if a Generation V is announced, it can be updated super quickly so there's no need to waste hours to remake it. It may be just me, but having the console games so close makes it a little confusing to read... Wait, I realized why it was so ugly. It was aligned to the left, so if you look at it vertically it goes "Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon". By repetitive I meant that all the templates begin to look exactly the same and gets a bit... bland. That's why I prefer version 1 to version 2, because it's a kind of change from the usual. But that's just my personal preference, so I guess it's not the best reason for it. ~ overgrownsol 04:18, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Uh... it won't take hours. Couple of seconds to copy-paste coding. I think that having similar templates is better, because it sets a standard. But, I am in agreement with the Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon. The {{v2}} and {{2v2}} templates should be used instead. — THE TROM — 04:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Blagh, I hadn't thought of saving it on a word-processing file. D:
But, instead of {{v2}} and {{2v2}} either, why not use..
SPECIAL COLORFUL LINKAGES!
Sorry, it just looks a little bland for me when it's like that. Or maybe you could center the second column so it actually is like the other ones. Oh, by the way, that doesn't mean I'm completely in favor of that version. The one I made is above all the rest. *biased* ~ overgrownsol 04:30, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, we all are a bit. How about this:

You kinda alternate between "and" and the ampersand (&) for paired games. Otherwise, all I'd do would be colorize the "RS" in Pokémon Box RS. Or should it be R & S? ~ overgrownsol 04:44, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Oops, that was an error. I was intending to change them all to "and" but I am now leaning back toward the "&". I'm still finding it really hard to read the likes of Silver and Pearl, but there is nothing we can do if we are using colors. Uhm... I think just coloring the two letters would make it look kinda tacky. And I would leave it as just RS. — THE TROM — 04:49, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
YAY TACKINESS!! :D Anyway, I think it just takes a second or so for your eyes to adjust so Silver and Pearl (and maybe Diamond, too) can be seen easily. That's how it is for me, anyway... ~ overgrownsol 04:52, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Ugh, tackiness. Oh well. If my computer will stop crashing, I'll try and update it. — THE TROM — 05:16, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Still kinda hard to read. Prehaps I'll fix something up? TTEchidna 08:33, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps you will. And perhaps you will bypass colored letters... — THE TROM — 08:40, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Move

To Template:Core series. Articles using it will require updates, of course. SatoMew 00:23, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Seconding this, with the addition of fixing any links to the "Version" redirect. --Super goku (talk) 09:16, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
