Friend Safari locations for Pokemon pages

I would really like to know the current status of noting Friend Safari on Pokemon pages. Has there been any progress since the update you gave two months ago? I'd like some response (from someone...) to my query on the Friend Safari talk page...

In particular, I want to know if it's actually impossible to satisfactorily note the Friend Safari, currently, on Pokemon pages. If it can be done, it should be, whether there's a new template in the works or not. I cannot fathom what a new template might do that the current template couldn't that would make it and only it acceptable for adding the Friend Safari. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:46, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

As much as it should be listed, I believe the consensus is to wait for the new template. No sense doing work twice (I do, however, understand the concern with how long it is taking). Although the new template may appear ready, some staff members have a few concerns with the template. We're pushing this up in the communal to-do list immediately. I'm sorry if I'm not too much help here. I've been out of the game-loop for a while with my focuses elsewhere. MaverickNate 05:10, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Can you direct me to someone I may implore to better effect then? "No sense doing work twice" is not a good reason. It's your (staff, I suppose) reason. If I could be allowed to add Friend Safari locations (in an acceptable format), I wouldn't care the least bit if, one day in and a quarter of the way through, the new template was approved and staff started inserting the new template, with Friend Safari locations.
What there's no sense in is keeping the wiki in a decidedly incomplete state when it can be complete. If staff don't want to do the work twice, let other people who don't mind do it. There should be several people around who would still be willing. Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:23, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Not doing work over again is my policy. I was speaking for myself. Not the staff. I run a section with very few users contributing, and I like to make sure any and all help is maximized to the fullest, because I'll never know when it will be available again. I suggest going to either the Head of Games, as it's the game availability template in question, or the Editor in Chief, as the template in question is being worked on by her. I have no power in granting a temporary implementation into a section that isn't the TCG. MaverickNate 05:32, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Name parameter

What exactly is the "name=" in the cardlist/div for? I noticed it's only been put in -EX listings for XY Series cards. glikglak 04:36, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

It is supposed to be used on anything with an image in the title of the card. Pokémon SP, Pokémon ☆, Pokémon-EX, etc. The title of each section is treated as an anchor for links, but as images can't very well be in links, there needs to be some way of textifying the names so that links work. The name parameter does this. Ex: Blastoise (TCG)#Blastoise-EX. These links are used on the card name sections of every card. MaverickNate 05:02, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Ran into a problem with blank Owner's Pokémon: the cards' infoboxes seem to link to "#_.27s_(Pokémon)", which I'm assuming translates to " 's (Pokémon)", but putting that in the name parameter doesn't appear to work. Also tried copying the whole ____'s but again, no dice. glikglak 20:08, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I kind of forgot about this message. I'll try some things out and see if any of them work. MaverickNate 07:53, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Coins

Do the DP and BW theme decks and trainer kits not have an image for their coins for a reason? glikglak 00:02, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

While in charge, coins weren't something I cared about until recently. So their deck placement just wasn't ever updated. Additionally, our previous coverage on coins isn't as in depth as it needs to be, so it has been taking a lot of research so that we don't have false information spreading across the TCG section. I have a notebook with all the DP and BW coin coverage. I just haven't gotten all the necessary images for it yet. MaverickNate 00:50, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh hey, you have a to-do sorta list at the top of the page, why didn't I ever look at that? Any plans on updating it? It'd certainly help me in finding things to do instead of just playing follow the leader. And in case your notes don't have it (and what prompted the question in the first place), Toxic Tricks has this coin. glikglak 03:56, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
That's the coin included in Explosive Edge: a Regular-sized, Black Chrome, White-backed Reshiram/Zekrom Coin. The coin included in Toxic Tricks is actually a Regular-sized, Gold Rainbow-Mirror Holofoil, Black-backed Reshiram/Zekrom Coin.
As for my to-do list, I'll probably update it again sometime. It's just been a while and it will take a bit of double checking to figure out what exactly has been finished since the last time I looked at it. MaverickNate 04:06, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Gold? If you mean this one, then something's wrong. The one I have is not even remotely that dark of a gold; the Holofoil makes it tricky, but it's a plain chrome/silver or a very light gold. It's a lot closer to the black chrome one, which is why I thought it was the one. glikglak 04:30, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
That image is an image from the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, so your confusion is understandable. No Reshiram/Zerkom coin exists that is that deep of a gold color. Everything from Pokemon.com removes holofoil and makes everything a lot trickier. I need to go through BW Coins just like I have been with XY Coins and do a lot of chipping away and image replacing in order to make everything as detailed as it needs to be. Getting images is also a bit tricky because Mirror Foil scans terribly. Though, just to make sure, your coin looks closer to this image I just uploaded, yes? MaverickNate 04:41, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that's it. Now I get why you didn't want to spend so much time on coins previously. glikglak 05:08, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, there's just a lot going on with coins. There's a lot of unintentionally misleading/incorrect information to sift through in order to be 100% correct with coins, and it's hard to give undivided attention to them when there is always a new expansion looming in the background. MaverickNate 05:35, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Newbie questions about images

Hi Maverick, I am new to this project and have a question about uploading an image of a card from the Pokemon TCG to that card's article. I contacted another user and was adviced that I contact an admin listed on the TCG project page. In an article about a specific card from the TCG, should an english version be used for the card image if one is available and is it okay to take that image from a third party site? To be more specific, would it be okay to take this image and replace a:File:MoltresexNintendoPromo31.jpg in Moltres ex (Nintendo Promo 31) with it? Furthermore, could I do it, technically, or does my account need to be autoconfirmed first? Regards. Gengar321 (talk) 20:49, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

In order to ensure quality of our images, for English cards, we require that they be either from the official site, or scans done on our own. I enjoy your interest in improving the TCG section, it's just bad practice to use other websites' images. We'd have to go through a large process of asking collector's cache for permission to use their card scans, and as their images aren't exactly as large of an improvement as we'd like to see, it's not exactly worth the time and effort to get images we'd have to replace later anyway.
As for being autoconfirmed, you have to be a user on the Archives for an undetermined amount of time and make a certain amount of edits there in order to upload over images. Hope that helps! MaverickNate 21:53, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the information. Since I don't own a copy of the card myself and an image of the card doesn't seem to be available on any official site, it's difficult to get a scan image of the english card. Gengar321 (talk) 11:51, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Merch Gallery and Things

Seems we don't have the Japanese boosters and some English boosters for the HGSS Series, as well the Call of Legends boosters. While I was looking through the Archives for them, I noticed unused expansion artwork and booster boxes. Should I start incorporating the official artwork into the article like on Unleashed and should the booster boxes be used in the gallery sections?

I also left you a message on the Archives about card scans. glikglak 23:38, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

No to the booster boxes. As for the artwork, I really only added those into the body of the information section when the actual text references them. The images would be out of place if there's no real reason to be shown outside of "hey look at this". There are better places for that. MaverickNate 19:08, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Article mainspacing stuff

What happened with this thread? I haven't seen any posts about other articles on here needing attention since February and the fact that a few of the recent discussed articles weren't resolved or anything. PattyMan 04:23, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

A change in the leadership means a change in certain practices on the wiki. The thread is no longer going to be used, and the pages left needing attention will be addressed in other ways. MaverickNate 06:12, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Brilliant Thunder Coin

Here is the Brilliant Thunder coin you asked for. Looks like its the Mega-Charizard coin from the Japanese half deck.

"First introduced"

I'm not interested in beating a dead horse if you're not interested in changing your mind, but for the record, "first originating in" is exactly as redundant as "first introduced" for the same reason I mentioned in my edit summary. That's all; I'll leave TCG stuff alone now. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 05:14, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

False. It is NOT redundant, and I will explain why. The placement/omission of the word "fist" when talking about release information has a very specific consequence of meaning. First is always included when a card has more than one print (which is pretty much every card, except for non-reprinted unreleased Japanese cards, and yet-to-be-released-in-Japan English cards...with one exception, which will be detailed out later). A statement saying "first introduced" or "first released" should always be used on cards that were first released in English before they were released in Japanese: Boundaries Crossed Black Kyurem, EX Sandstorm Anorith. On the flip side, "first originating in" is specifically for cards that were released in English (our highest priority as an English wiki), that first originated in a Japanese expansion: Dark Explorers Ultra Ball, EX Hidden Legends Magnetic Storm. Dragons Exalted Rayquaza utilizes both. Eliminating the word "first" is strictly reserved for situations where the card was released at the exact same time in both English in Japanese. As the card was neither first released or originating from an expansion, being simultaneous, "first" is removed: the entire Kalos Starter Set, every worlds promo such as Tropical Beach.
As a subject, the TCG is extremely strict in words and phrasing. Even just a slight miscommunication in card text can cause tremendous effects during the actual tournament scene, from warnings to complete game losses. Thus, I am extremely deliberate and specific with everything I write, edit, and do for the TCG section, and it is entirely shocking when an edit of mine, as the TCG seat of the Editorial Board, is reverted and removed when I very intentionally added it back in. I take all thoughts and suggestions into consideration when someone brings them to my attention; however, the times when they aren't brought to my attention and just dashed off with the undo button and an edit summary are the times that I find incredibly rude. Rude towards me as a person, because I'm seemingly not worth your time to write out a proper message the first time before a reversion war, and rude towards me as an upper level staff member, due to the lack of respect for experience and authority. MaverickNate 07:34, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
"First released" is not redundant, because something can be released more than once. "First introduced" is, because it is impossible to be introduced more than once. If you're insistent on "first" as a way of signifying things for tournament rules, may I suggest that "introduced" be changed to "released," since you seem to be intending them to mean the same thing despite their difference in connotation? (I apologize for my second edit; I didn't mean to be rude. I just thought, since you didn't mention it in your edit summary, that you had been editing a previous revision of the page and had overlooked my edit without realizing you'd undone it.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 07:50, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
More than one introduction is possible when you are introducing something to a different group of people. Painting a broad brushstroke, cards are first introduced in Japan, and then introduced later to the English card game territories, then introduced in Korea, then the European languages. Yes, 'introduced' here may seem similar to 'released' in meaning, but on our TCG pages, released is reserved for other contexts. Alternate words and wordings are specifically chosen in order to keep one word from meaning separate things in close contexts. MaverickNate 13:34, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Quick question

So, does the "5 people using a template in the userspace for it to be moved" rule include or exclude the owner? (I really want to optimize this template to not have to use 7 parameters, but I'm coming up short in ideas). Anyway, assuming it can be moved, Could I also add something like what I described here? Anyway, thanks for your time. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 21:35, 5/21/2014 (UTC)


Need some quick help

I need some help in updating the opening summary on the new SSB game since the information regarding the 3DS version is outdated now that the official release date is confirmed. -Tyler53841 (talk) 20:01, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

What I might be able to help with.

Okay, here goes. I must have over a thousand Pokémon cards, so I might be able to provide some English scans for cards that need them. I also go on PTCGO a bit, so if we need any information on that, I could probably get it. Also, I know of a piece of TCG merchandise that I don't think is licensed by the Pokémon Company. I can't remember all the details, but here's what I know: It's a cube-shaped object sold at Target stores (I don't know if it's sold anywhere else, but definitely Target stores in the US), it's pre-XY era, and it contains the following: two random repackaged figures from boxes (mine were Kyurem and Mewtwo), one random holographic card (mine was Entei), one random reverse-holo card (mine was Shinx), a bunch of assorted cards from the Black & White Trainer Kit and one of the World Championship decks, a DP-era booster (Mine was a Stormfront booster pack, I believe), and a BW-era booster pack (mine was a Dark Explorers). I'm not sure how to go about using this information, but I can go to Target and look at a few more of the cubes to see the variation (although since it's not official, it's probably completely random in terms of sets), and I can try to get an image. I also know of a YouTuber who opened one, if that's any help. Lastly, I can pick up wikicode pretty quickly if any templates need sprucing up. Sorry for the long message, and thanks for hearing me out! KYUREM'S ICE BLADE 18:14, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I know the box you are talking about! That's simply a third party repackage: an item including ripped apart theme deck pieces that they weren't able to sell, any random cards they have lying around, and old packs people don't typically want. There are many different types of these products, but since they aren't licensed and also aren't standardized in any sort with their contents, we ignore them on the wiki. As for card scans, most are a low priority. As long as we have an artwork for each different print of cards, it doesn't matter if they aren't in English or not. Scans aren't an area of information that will get lost forever if we take too long to do it (since anyone who has a collection can just grab the card, take a scan, and finish the work.) I won't say no if you want to do it, I just think there's better uses of your time. The PTCGO though, I think it would be cool if you were able to get information from there. We haven't entirely posted anything substantial since the initial interest in PTCGO a Generation ago, and we're seriously lacking. I don't have the time to focus on it, and if you were willing to do that, I would most certainly appreciate it. All the decks since BW (and some HS ones) have had code cards that unlock the deck online. However, in order to unlock the full deck (by automactically replacing old cards with different cards with each win), it has to be played with in the Trainer Challenge (Mind Wipe and Solar Strike are the only one I remember being finished, so they are good examples). I don't know if you buy theme decks and would have the codes, but if you don't, I do and would be willing to send the code your way if you wanted to work on finding out each deck's unlockables. The character pages need more information, and we should probably have a list of promotional cards that are available on there, since they are different than real life. We're just seriously empty in regards to PTCGO, and any work you would do is beneficial. MaverickNate 18:45, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Ah yes, I know what you mean about the TCGO decks. I do have the Ice Shock and Cold Fire decks, but I appear to have lost the code cards. They're bound to be somewhere in my collection, but if not, I can save up my Trainer Tokens and buy them in the shop. I'll take a look at which decks need more information (I know there are some default decks you can unlock, but those might have already been filled out) and go from there. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! KYUREM'S ICE BLADE 03:18, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Splendid! If you have any questions or need any help, don't be afraid to ask me and I'll see what I can do. MaverickNate 13:45, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey

Hey, its Tavis. It's been a while. Just remembered, do you think you could take me off the abuse list? CoolPikachu set me to abuse years ago shortly before he was kicked out. My bro and I simply edited each other's user pages without going over our personal limit, but for some reason, CP decided to tally my bro's edits onto my count as well. Thanks --Tavisource 08:19, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

I think it is entirely fair to remove you from abuse. Hold on a second. I'll take care of it. MaverickNate 13:54, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Furious Fists

Given how early the set has leaked, and that you have made a start already, are you okay with me making headway on the English conversion? ~~nuva-kal 20:56, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Yeah! That would be fine. I haven't been able to get to much of it anyway, so it would be good if someone was able to. =] MaverickNate 22:59, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

BW77 & BW78

I'm a little confused: BW Black Star Promos (TCG). You undid my revision back to my first edit. You said "Yeah, if you're not going to bother reading bulbanews for this info, I'm not letting something not sourced from us get on here."

I don't understand, because I DID use the Bulbanews as source. I originally had it set to "Unreleased", and then I changed it to "Unknown cancelled promotion" (trying to keep it consistent with what is listed under DP54 and DP55) so that people wouldn't expect "Unreleased" to mean it will be released one day. You sent it back to Unreleased (my original terminology for these two promos). How is what I said not the same as what was on Bulbanews? Would you rather it be "Cancelled promotion"?

I am a veteran competitor and collector, and I felt like helping by correcting some misconceptions on Bulbapedia. I really enjoy the work you do on Bulbapedia, but if you want new editors to stay around and be productive members, try being helpful to them instead of sarcastic and condescending. It's unnecessary.

066-067 XY-P

Just thought I'd give you a heads up since I haven't seen a post on it :D


Lucario EX 60 Card Fierce Fight Deck

Released with Corocoro Ichiban on July 26th.

Product Page here: http://www.pokemon-card.com/special/coro1_xy3guide/

Comes with TWO XY-P promos:

Lucario EX 066/xy-p

oc8JNuF.jpg


Machamp 067/xy-p

1xLQO7q.jpg

Thanks for telling me! I somehow missed these promos. Due to how long ago they were actually released, I think it'd just be appropriate to have them added to the promo pages and getting things updated only. I'll take care of it. Thanks again! MaverickNate 14:42, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Sheen Holofoil in XY (TCG)

Hi Maverick, I'm currently editing to section for Holofoils, and adding in the information for different types of holofoils over the generations; would it be ok to use information from your currently-in-development sheen holofoil page? Additionally, I've bought three booster boxes of Korean XY and Wild Blaze boosters, so I found out that the holofoil for XY on is sheen holofoil from bottom left to top right, covering the image only (not the borders, etc)

Thanks! - unsigned comment from Ching Yeung (talkcontribs) <-sorry for that. Still rather new around here.

Feel free to use whatever you need! I made that page to replace the holofoil page eventually, so use it! Good job on the page. MaverickNate 15:41, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Rarity (editing)

Hi there, do you think that Promos, reverse holos, or fixed rarities should be added in the Rarity page? I think reverse holo doesn't really apply, but not really sure about the other two. Do you have any others to add? Thanks! Ching Yeung (talk) 10:15, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

I think those all could get a mention on the rarity page. There are enough details to warrant being listed I think. Feel free to add anything you feel appropriate to that page. It certainly needs the help! MaverickNate 18:12, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I've added the fixed rarities, and will do so for Promos in a minute, but maybe reverse holos should be added in the Holofoil page instead? Or maybe the booster pack page - its mentioned there, but doesn't have any details. CY (talk) 08:04, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I've finished with the promos, but I can't have an image in it since its way too large! Can I shrink it? CY (talk) 08:10, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Game version redirects on card pages

I've gathered you're pretty deliberate when it comes to TCG pages. So I was wondering if there was a specific reason that many pages (like Pawniard (Noble Victories 81)) use a redirected link (like Pokémon X) rather than pointing the target directly at the proper page and just customizing the text part (like Pokémon X)? Aren't redirects undesirable? Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:49, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Let me get back to you on this. I don't have the time to write out a complete message right now. MaverickNate 18:12, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to postpone an answer on this until we work out a less convoluted template system. The way we want to use these link templates and the options these link templates provide do not work out well together. MaverickNate 19:59, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I think I sympathize with that sentiment. OK. Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Korean Half Decks

Hi, I went to Korea recently and bought the Yveltal and Xerneas Half Decks, so I have the card list; however, I don't have permission to create a new page. Should I give you the card list instead? I'm happy to do that. Additionally, although it says on the pages of the Chesnaught/Delphox/Frogadier Half Decks that one card was removed to make room for another of the final evolutions, I opened the Delphox deck and it had an additional Braixen (supposedly replaced card) at the back, in a separate plastic 'wrapping'! Should I take a photo and send it to you? CY (talk) 12:15, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

I think it would be a good idea to list those decklists on the already existing pages for Xerneas Half Deck and Yveltal Half Deck. Unlike the beginning set stuffs, these half decks are simply the exact japanese release appropriated for the korean audience. I don't exactly know what I want to do in this situation quite yet, but if you were to write out the decklists here, I can add them to the page and give you an example of what to do in the future.
As for the Delphox deck, I'm rather confused with why that would have happened. When I bought the deck, there was only one Braixen, so I don't entirely know what's going on. I would love to see a picture, and if you could tell me if yours came with exactly 30 cards/what card wasn't included to have room for that braixen, I'd appreciate it. MaverickNate 18:12, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you have an email address so I could send the photos to you? And I don't think the Xerneas and Yveltal Half Deck are the same - the decklist should be, but it doesn't have the 6 card additional pack, including the Clefairy/Pancham card. CY (talk) 15:18, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
The decklists should have the trainer cards in a different order, but that isn't something that makes the deck significant enough for its own article. as for my e-mail address: mavericknate@bulbagarden.net MaverickNate 18:42, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I checked the decklist, and its only that the Crushing Hammer and Great Ball are in the other place. Maybe I could mention that it doesn't have the 6-card pack? CY (talk) 06:56, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely! Promos are always different in Korea, so it makes sense the pack isn't included. MaverickNate 14:45, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I've edited it on the page. Did you receive my email? CY (talk) 14:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I did! I'm wondering if they added it later, after noticing the two delphox couldn't evolve without another braixen. That would mean you got 31 cards though. That's weird, to be honest. Could someone else maybe have slipped it in instead of Pokémon Korea? I'm a bit concerned about the whole situation. MaverickNate 15:13, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Are you sure you don't have an extra one? I could open the Chesnaught one as well to make sure. I know its weird too, and by the way that its in separate packaging, it must have been a last minute change. But why would a third party of any motivation to slip it in, if it wasn't Pokémon Korea? - unsigned comment from Ching Yeung (talkcontribs)
I definitely do not have one. I took a picture of all the cards laid out when I opened the deck last winter, and it only had one Braixen. We can definitely mention which cards are holo in the articles. We could also probably mention that they began including a 31st card in later issues of the product. MaverickNate 15:18, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Should we find someone else (who may live in Korea) to check? I've never seen a such a situation before. I'd definitely count it as strange. Why add in a card last minute, especially when its after some of the products are already out and sold? CY (talk) 15:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
If you want to find someone, feel free, but I honestly think we have enough evidence to make this statement. I can see them fixing it though. It was an error on their part, and they wanted people who bought the deck to be satisfied with their purchase. Having a dead card in the deck isn't a good thing.
We've seen similar things like this happen elsewhere. Like corrected cards in later print runs of cards (Call of Legends Phanpy; Dragons Exalted Hoppip). In my observations, they like to fix issues that come up when they caused them. MaverickNate 15:25, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I thought you might want a third person to give some hard evidence before changing it, but I guess its ok. I see no other reason for what happened, so it can't be too far off the mark. I'll change it when I'm free. CY (talk) 15:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm just not the kind of person to try and ask someone to go spend money on a deck just to confirm an idea I'm having. MaverickNate 15:45, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I meant to ask someone who has the deck. Anyways, I've changed the ones on Evolution of Froakie and Fennekin; however, I haven't changed the one on Chespin yet, since it says that there isn't a Snubbull. The wording would have to be different, and why was it a Snubbull in this case? Its all so confusing. CY (talk) 07:45, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I've checked the Evolution of Chespin deck as well, and it really does have an additional Snubbull. Don't you find it funny how the other two decks remove the first evolution of the starter while this deck removes a completely irrelevant card? I've edited all three pages, so their up to date now. CY (talk) 07:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Fake Card Help? Dunno if card is fake

Hi, im new here and i need help on knowing if a card if fake or not?

i bought some cards on Ebay nd the card looks legit but it has be image of the non holo numbered card but its numbered the rare holo one

for example i have a jungle Nidoqueen, its numbered 7/64 but its image is off the 23/63 instead? is it a misprint? also the number in the corner is not as bold and not too the right in the corner as any other card i have,

i also have an electrode and pidgeot the same?

can i send scanned copies to back my claim up?

what can i do? - unsigned comment from PokeFan99887 (talkcontribs)

Maybe scan it in, but I'm pretty sure its fake - that's too big a difference to be a misprint. CY (talk) 03:11, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

do i scan the image then upload to this text box?

Primal Reversion

Sorry to bug you, but you were the first staff member I found that's online right now. Do you mind making an edit to Primal Reversion, so that Primal Kyogre's ability is Sea of Beginnings and that Primal Groudon's ability is Land of Endings? Thank you so much.

I took care of it! Thanks for alerting me to the needed edit. IF you need anything else, I'm always open. MaverickNate 22:42, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Team Flare Pokémon Tool cards

Hi Nate. Thought I'd run this by you before I start experimenting. For the Hyper Gear cards, I was going to do what we did with the Team Plasma cards: add a red border and a graphic to the right of the card title with "FLARE". With regards to the "Team Flare Gear" and "Team Flare Hyper Gear" subtitles, I'm not quite sure if we should just apply this to the main English title in small text, or to the Japanese text and translation below as well. This could either be done in small text too, or in square brackets like we did with Pokémon SP. Doing this may shove this onto another line with the "FLARE" graphic, though. This wasn't an issue with Rocket's Secret Machine cards, but since we already have the Item subclass, it's a different kettle of fish here... Let me know on your thoughts. Thanks. ~~nuva-kal 18:21, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

This is a tricky one. Looking at the English Press Release, it would appear they really are only considering the Team Flare Hyper Gear to be the only significantly different ones. The Team Flare Gear, Like Target Whistle and Robo Substitute I would assume would probably be most like Team Galactic's Invention G-109 SP Radar, but (hopefully) without the lengthened name. I think we could probably get away with just including that as Pokémon SP: including it in the Japanese names, and then the illustrator part. Team Flare Hyper Gear, however, are more different. hmmm. Maybe like Team Plasma Badge for the infobox, but the rule change being a TrainerText addition, since it is technically a new class of item, but then also including it in the Japanese names, and then the illustrator part. Does that seem appropriate to you? We can't do too much without knowing the english parts of things. We'll probably have to modify everything then again anyway.
