Random Matchup

Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect were not listed since everything unavailable yet is obviously not allowed. If they were to be listed, all unavailable moves, items, and such would also have to be listed. See footer. I didn't bother with the so-called "event clause" since, with the banned Pokémon list, it'd be redundant. -tc²₆tc26- 15:47, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Comments

Place all comments here. I'll be moving this as soon as possible, unless someone points out a big problem. If you happen to find a problem you could fix yourself, please go ahead. Please use bullet points and don't forget to sign :) -tc²₆tc26- 15:47, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

You need to wait for approval from another staff member, preferably a board member, before you publish a template. Just to make doubly sure there are no kinks. I think some of the internal borders are too fat. and there are spacing issues. —darklordtrom 00:48, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
The only reason I usually avoid this long process is the fact that people take an eternity to comment. The only ones with quick ones are often the more "popular" admins. Also, could you specify a bit more on the fat internal borders and spacing issues? Maybe a screenshot. -tc²₆tc26- 03:03, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
Maybe add padding rather than   to the left of the tournament/competetion name, so that it is still away from the circle specifying region, but also indents all the lines rather than just the first one. --SnorlaxMonster 03:16, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
We're working on being faster. Nine hours for a non-vital template, though, is a bit quick. You should be giving us at least a couple of days. http://www.diigo.com/item/image/196xi/8hop?size=odarklordtrom 03:29, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't like or understand those Generation bubbles. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:07, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't know about previous Gens but recent tournaments restricted everyone to the Unova Dex. Easier to list the Generations allowed than all the Pokémon from the 4 that weren't. If my interpretation is correct--MisterE13 04:27, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
All should be fine now, with the Generations, borders, and spacing. That empty space for the tournaments can be used for additional info, as seen in the Random Matchup sample. Also, since it's under banned Pokémon, Gens I-IV should be listed. Hope you can understand it better now :) -tc²₆tc26- 04:37, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
Ahhhhhh yes, that looks much better and explains it well enough. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:57, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
So if there are no more comments, is it good to go? -tc²₆tc26- 05:52, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
Planning for the future, could you make it so that at least one additional clause can be added based on the contents of the parameter? (i.e. {{{extraclause}}} Clause) And could you make some move parameters to set a couple of additional move names and types? Maybe for items as well? Not so sure about that one. Werdnae (talk) 07:04, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
Maybe no. Those are often the followed clauses, and people don't just make clauses randomly. Not all rules have corresponding clauses, so they can be added as additional info (see "Updates" section of Random Matchup.) For items, the only item they really ban all the time is Soul Dew. Gen III had Enigma Berry, but Gen IV didn't. One tournament had Leftovers banned. For moves, sure since they had Sky Drop last year and Dark Void this year. -tc²₆tc26- 07:11, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be best to link the clauses. Either to rule variants or Appendix:Metagame terminology sections, since people not overly familiar with competitive battling may not know what they mean. Also, incredibly minor, but in the footer, Ability should have a capital "A". --SnorlaxMonster 07:34, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Good point, though only the top one for the clause links. Meant to link stuff in the footer too. Anything else, before it, hopefully, gets moved? -tc²₆tc26- 09:29, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
