Like it

  • I greatly prefer this to the current layout. The current infobox is way too big. --SnorlaxMonster 05:16, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
  • After looking at it, I think that this does look alright. The Infobox could contain a bit of info on a common use and the appearance of the Locations table doesn't seem to sit right, but everything else looks good. --Super goku (talk) 05:35, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I like this a lot better than the current layout. It's more consistant. レシイラムtalk 03:27, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Hate it

The current one is fine

It looks pretty good, but using a template for Locations seems a bit... much... also, the Generation III-exclusive Berries don't seem to have in-game sprites so the bag description template needs to reflect that. Perhaps a sentence saying how Fling does 10 damage with whatever Berry could be mentioned. Finally, I'm not sure if it was checked as well, don't forget about Chilan Berry... there is a Generation III and Generation IV/V variant. ht14 05:37, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Also, "forcibly consumed"? That's just odd wording... ht14 05:40, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
You do realize all that stuff is already on the actual article, right? I just copied and pasted. --Abcboy (talk) 13:22, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Shortly after I typed this up, I noticed that the Locations template exists. I'm still saying I don't like it (so that's not targeted toward you; it's been a while since I've looked at the Berry articles). As for Fling and "forcibly consumed" on the Pecha Berry article, that's not mentioned at all. All that is mentioned for "in-battle" use is this:
"A Pecha Berry, if held by a Pokémon, can instantly cure it of poison, or it can be used as an item to cure poison.
"When used in conjunction with Natural Gift, a Pecha Berry will take on the Electric-type with a power of 60." I don't want to sound technical... but as I said, none of that information was mentioned. ht14 16:43, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
SnorlaxMonster edited that, actually. Here it is. --Abcboy (talk) 19:18, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
I think that's the most accurate description of the way it is used under those circumstances. --SnorlaxMonster 01:47, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
I apologize if there was a misunderstanding; I'm just noting what I observe. I would say that consumed by itself is better... Fling and Item Urge I could see for "forcibly consumed," but not Bug Bite or Pluck... ht14 04:18, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, the point is that the Berry is usually only eaten at a certain time; Pluck and Bug Bite force it to be eaten at that instant rather than triggering when it normally would. --SnorlaxMonster 04:28, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
... I just don't like "forcibly." ht14 05:12, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
