Edit Request

Request an admin to change the font color on all lines to black, as to match Template:Availability. — THE TROM — 05:15, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

technically cant because this template uses "Stadium" games which use a black background, so, in the sense of similarities, they are all white. but, ill do it now and if TTE doesnt like it, he can revert it. -- MAGNEDETH 21:59, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Hey, that's good enough for me. White writing on yellow background is never good! Thanks. — THE TROM — 22:04, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
counterively, Sapphire is a bit hard to read.. -- MAGNEDETH 22:10, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. Is there a happy medium that we can work with?--RexRacer -talk 22:13, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Whatever we decide should be implemented at Template:Availability as well. Maybe just make Sapphire white? — THE TROM — 22:14, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
nooo! its in the thinking stages, possibly just a lighter shade of blue. -- MAGNEDETH 22:18, 28 November 2008
Oh, sorry, I meant the text. — THE TROM — 22:19, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
oh, yea, thats a possible outcome, i discussed it with TTE before, so, ill bring it up to him again. -- MAGNEDETH 22:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

2 things

First, we should fix the Pt to Unknown. It exists now. Also, we should start adding HGSS. I mean, we have Mareep...or just set it up... ht14 19:06, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Pt changing, definitely. HGSS adding, eh, in a month. TTEchidna 19:39, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
OK, it's been a month already :D TheChrisD RantsEdits 21:56, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd rather wait until we have stuff to put in.... Do we have stuff to put in? —darklordtrom 02:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Specific Missing Dex Entries

Should we have different missing dex clause categorization, like "Articles missing their Heartgold Pokédex entries"? SavageWolf 17:51, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Requesting rsedex parser

See Celebi and Bellsprout. Dex entries are all the same. ht14 16:38, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Anyone? rsedex parser? ht14 13:56, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Remove "Pokédex entry"

Could the "Pokédex entry" title be removed? I mean, we already have it as a section on the articles where the template is used for, so it's kinda redundant to be on the template itself... ポケモンあいこうか 21:07, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Bump. Can someone consider the removal of the title? And if yes, change the template to reflect that? ポケモンあいこうか 14:47, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Ty Darky. :D ポケモンあいこうか 18:24, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Stadium

I've noticed that there are entries for Stadium and Stadium 2 on the Pokemon pages, yet they do not appear on the template, why? XVuvuzela2010X 01:39, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

They used to be in the template but were removed as they were just the entries from the game which the Stadiums had last communicated with IIRC.--MisterE13 02:39, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Japanese Dex entries, Red & Green entries, and Stadium entries (again)

How about adding these? From the ones that I have seen, they seem to be different enough to be added. And as for re-adding Pokemon Statium 1 entries, I was told back in January that they are just the Pokedex entries from the last game in the Transfer Pak. However, from some I have looked at, (Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Pikachu, Staryu and Jynx), they are not the same as the GB ones. XVuvuzela2010X 19:35, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

So, how about this? The Red and Green entries can be found on the Base Set, Jungle and Fossil TCG card pages, and are already translated. XVuvuzela2010X 19:38, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
Here is Bulbasaur as an example:

XVuvuzela2010X 17:54, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm all in favor of this. However, no Japanese pre-Generation V main series games had kanji on them, with the notable exception of 円, which is the symbol used by the Japanese for their currency, yen. And the spacing on the text has to be the same one from the games. There also appears to be an extra space between RG's and RB's entries on the template, which should be removed, if possible. SatoMew 15:47, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Just revisiting this. Why don't we have the RG dex entries? I noticed a couple weeks ago that they weren't listed but I think it would be really neat. --ZestyCactus 03:57, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

That makes no sense...

Shouldn't this template be changed to where it only shows the This Pokémon was unavailable before to where it only shows they were unavailable before Gen II instead of Gen I, saying they were unable available before then seems to imply there was a much earlier generation. Frozen Fennec 02:45, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

That's just an example. So it doesn't matter anyway.--ForceFire 03:08, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

B2W2

Someone that can should add field for BWB2W2, as Pokémon such as Blastoise (apparently) have the same Pokédex entry as in BW (which is the same as in Platinum). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:55, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Bump. Did anyone fix that? Blastoise is still waiting. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:14, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
I would rather keep the two separate personally. Werdnae (talk) 22:04, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Stadium

This template links to "Pokémon Stadium", not to "Pokémon Stadium (game)". --Abcboy (talk) 00:37, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
