Question

Hello, Carmen. My name is The Pokémon Master. I was wondering if it would it be alright with you if I made use of the coding from your user page, specifically the background colors. If not, I completely understand. Thank you for taking the time to read this message! I look forward to working with you in the future. - The Pokémon Master (talk) 21:58, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Sure, go ahead. Thanks for asking in advance. Don't forget to follow the userspace policy and to balance your userspace edits with mainspace edits. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 00:02, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I want to contribute more to the mainspace, but I ran into difficulty in the past because I disagreed with the wording/formatting on many of the articles. Kinda too scared to do much of anything besides gnome work, now… - The Pokémon Master (talk) 00:37, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
There's nothing really wrong with gnome work, but if you'd like to help out more, there are a bunch of articles needing improvement, stubs you can work on, and articles needing more information. Don't be afraid to edit; if you make mistakes, you can always learn from them and improve. No one is perfect. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 00:45, 19 May 2016 (UTC)


Sleep Talk

If it isn't correct, why does it say in the by leveling up that in RSE (so Emerald too), only Whismur,Loudred and Exploud can learn it? Lokki (talk) 14:03, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

A bunch of Pokémon can learn Sleep Talk via Move Tutor in Emerald. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 14:05, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Edits on Spheal evolutionary line Egg cycles

Thank you for quickly fixing my edits to the Egg cycle numbers. I was just about to do that after noticing that I had used an incorrect Pokemon without Flame Body as my party lead (never happened to me before) when I was breeding for Spheals, which resulted in twice as high step count for hatching them. Minazuki (talk) 21:38, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

I tried to undo that edit on New Unova Pokedex myself but it was identified as harmful

It was a test edit. It was reserved in case someone wanted to move this to a new page. I'm just a new user Alexlatham96

I was going to leave a message on your talk page, but I'll just do it here now. Please note that the mainspace is not the place for your "tests." If you want to test something, either just preview the page without saving or take your edits to Bulbapedia:Sandbox. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:36, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

I'm sorry for that

I know I have made many edits on my userpage and it is not accepted here. I just wanted to show you an improved national pokedex list which I have created on other Pokemon Wiki and suggest to add it on Bulbapedia. Sorry for my bad English. --Dominikololo (talk) 18:01, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to request an additional "Switch leaders" for Allowances in the Template:Dungeon infobox

I apologize if I seem more impatient than usual.

Anyway, in the Red/Blue Rescue team games, some dungeons like Wish Cave and Buried Relic allow the players to switch leaders mid-dungeon, while others like Murky Cave and Uproar Forest don't. I was about to add that for the dungeons which do myself, but this page is protected so I can't add to the template.

I should mention that this would only be for the Rescue Team games, as the Explorers game don't allow switching leaders at all, while the 3DS games always do as long as you're not playing the story. So anyway, is there anything we can do about this? Thanks. Unowninator (talk) 00:53, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with the Mystery Dungeon games, so I'm really not the person to ask. Try another staff member. Sorry I couldn't help. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 02:38, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Okay, is there any particular one you know of that does? Unowninator (talk) 03:33, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
If Carmenstar97 doesn't mind me doing so, I'd suggest checking the pages for the games and see who is a frequent editor and staff member. You can see staff icons next to staff members in the histories. Of course, Carmenstar97 may know someone he can recommend, as well. CycloneGU (talk) 03:44, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Camp Pokemon

Hey! So I was planning on adding Camp Pokemon to the side games location on each Pokemon. (I already have a list of the roughly 150 Pokemon in it) I was just wondering when it says color={{beauty color}}, what color would I use? IHHeroes (talk) 19:06, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

You already posted this on SnorlaxMonster's talk page. Please don't spam multiple staff talk pages seeking a quick answer. Contact one staff member and wait for a response. CycloneGU (talk) 19:10, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Did I do something wrong?

You deleted one of my edits. Unowninator (talk) 03:00, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

I didn't "delete" your edit; I deleted your edit summary because it contained sensitive information regarding the requirements to become autoconfirmed. The requirements for any Bulbawiki are to be kept hidden to the public; we don't want even guesses of parts of the requirements out there for anyone to read. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:06, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
Oops; sorry. I won't be mentioning that again anytime soon. Unowninator (talk) 03:12, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Looplet image linking

Hello Carmenstar. I noticed you're also Archives staff, so you might be the right person to make this offer you can't refuse:

Today, I've brought to you the brand new Move Archives Files technology. — The what? — The brand new Move Archives Files technology. You can move files on the Archives with it, in less than a blink of an eye. — On the Archives, you say? — Absolutely. Have you ever wondered why certain templates sometimes do not display the correct image although the image is present on the Archives? — ...You're right. They don't show up! — Or how you need to have a dedicated sprite parameter to make them show up? — I can see it; you need an extra param! How can we avoid all this? — Do you see that Glik proposed to move it to another location? — Absolutely. He sure did. — Now, listen: If I move it to the new location, the templates just begin to work. — They doooon't? — They do. And you also do not need an additional param. — I dooon't? Wow. — Also, have you noticed how fellow wiki editors continuously create new articles and add the current filename there? — Yes, they can really be suuuch a nuisance at times. — Absolutely. Now, if I move it now, these editors do not need to use the extra param for new articles... — ...And you do not need to correct them all as you would if you'd moved it in the future, right? — Exactly, now you got it! Isn't that great! — Absolutely. This Move Archives Files technology, it must be unaffordable. — Let me say you this: It's just some five minutes of work, that's all. Five minutes, then it's done. — Wow!

So, I hope that I conveyed that moving it now might not only make the template work on a number of pages, but also save you some effort when doing so (and me from adding the sprite param for new articles/info). If you decide not to move it for whatever reason (or not anytime soon), just let me know, then I can add the correct sprite param to the other pages to make them work. Thanks! Nescientist (talk) 09:24, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Done. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 11:38, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

The Damion Edit

I apologize for my behavior on re editing that there back then. I thought I'd give more clarification on his personality but I didn't mean to cause any trouble. Won't happen again. I'm new to this wiki and not too familiar with talk pages so I'll need to get used to this.-TheGreenBeetle.

New Editor (and I want to be a helpful contributing editor)

Carmen:

I am Zottffss, but I would be very happy if you called me Zott. I am a new editor of Bulbapedia and I want to learn a few tips on being a great Bulbapedia contributor.

Best of luck, Zottffss, aka Zott.

Also, what is a signature? I am very confused since I just joined this Bulbapedia and I don't want to make any mistakes on this. Zottffss (talk) 21:54, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Zott, and welcome to Bulbapedia! Starting with the basics, it is a very good idea to read through all of the links in the welcome message located on your talk page. Additionally, all of the links on this page are very helpful to understanding the general way we do things here on Bulbapedia. Familiarizing yourself with our policies and procedures is an excellent start to becoming a great contributor. After doing that, you should be all ready to edit! You can look through articles pertaining to topics of your interest and edit them if you find areas where they can be improved. If you really want to help us out, take a look at our pages needing attention and improve those articles however you can. In particular, we have a lot of articles needing more information. All help is much appreciated, so do whatever you can!
A signature is what you use to sign your talk page comments so that anyone reading the talk page will know who is making a certain comment. You seem to have done this already, but anyways, we sign our talk page comments with four tildes ~~~~ at the end of each message. This produces our own personal signature with a time stamp immediately following it (the time is in UTC). By default, everyone's signature is just a link to their user page and user talk page. However, you can customize your signature in your preferences, as long as it follows our signature policy.
If you have any further questions, please don't be afraid to ask me or any other active member of staff. Remember to always follow the manual of style, and happy editing! --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 04:52, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Speculation crackdown

Hi there, I see you're the most recent staff member to edit the S19 page, so I'm coming to you. Please let me know if you're not the right person to approach, so I can go to someone else with this.

The user Pikachuluckynumber25 has been repeatedly editing the page with speculation about the end of S19 and the start of the Sun & Moon series, despite being repeatedly told on their talk page that this is against our policy. Would it be possible for you or another staff member to intervene in this situation, please? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:42, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Pokémon Pages

Hello, there. Do you think you can make the pages for Jangmo-o and Type: Null's evolution forms please? Pictures are already uploaded in the archives site. Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 20:13, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

What?

Why did you change my last edit of XY137's page, when every other freaking page lists Clemont's Pokemon first? Clemont joined episodes before Serena did, so why should she be listed before him? Playerking95 (talk) 05:14, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

If every other page is listing Clemont's Pokémon as first, then those pages are going to have to be changed (do note that Clemont's Dedenne is the only Pokémon of his that is supposed to precede Serena's Pokémon). The order of Pokémon is supposed to follow the order set by the manual of style. If you have a problem with the manual of style itself, you can take it up with Pokemaster97. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 05:23, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
So does that mean I and other users have permission to change the other episode articles as well? And also, on a similar note, are characters like Sawyer and Alain more important than characters like Gym Leaders who have made like two appearances or so in the series? Because lately, pages have been changed where Gym Leaders and characters like Steven Stone are put before Alain and Shauna and such, but unlike the games, the anime have made recurring characters and rivals to be more important, so shouldn't the episode pages follow suit? Playerking95 (talk) 05:42, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, feel free to change the episode articles to reflect that. And rivals should precede Gym Leaders/Champions. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 05:49, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Having talked with Playking95 I was wondering if characters like Team Flare Grunts should be kept with the other Team Flare members or put below named characters.--Rahl (talk) 18:36, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
They should go below named characters. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 22:03, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Even if that means splitting up a group of people, like villain grunts from notable villain members? Playerking95 (talk) 03:29, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:33, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

By Previous Generation

I'm so sorry, I just now got the first message after finishing Ivysaur- I'd always wanted that as a feature when looking up generation II movesets, but I didn't realize that it had already been established that doing that was not allowed. Sorry for my ignorance...Tjallan53149 (talk) 04:30, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

That's alright, no worries. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 04:32, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Greninja

Hi there. I think it's time to add Greninja's biography from XY139 and XY140 to the Ash's Greninja page. And since it was released, I don't think we need the Poké Ball image anymore. Seabiscuit2020 (talk) 03:23, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Done. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 05:39, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Physical/special split

Hi there. I saw this edit of yours, and my personal opinion is that we need not include any mention of a move changing category between Gen III and IV for move pages (note that we do have it at list of modified moves). Anyway, Lino49 apparently thinks we should include it, and has done so at Fire Punch, Silver Wind, and Shadow Ball as well, where neither you nor other staff have removed that (same/similar for Bite, where it's been mentioned for longer). For me as an ordinary editor, I don't know what the right procedure would be — after all, it's well-intentioned edits and still some kind of subjective thing. I guess it should at least be consistent, so I'm coming to you hoping you would know what to do. Thanks. Nescientist (talk) 13:28, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

We don't need to mention it on the move pages; in Generations I through III, move categories weren't exactly a property of the moves themselves, but rather of the types. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 13:39, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, now I know the two of us agree. Anyway, would you be able to know what to do (or do that), please? Nescientist (talk) 13:50, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
The move pages should be restored to however they would be without the move category "change" note. I'd leave a talk page message to Lino49 about it, as well, but if you don't feel up to it I'll do it in a few hours when I get home. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 14:24, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
Yes, if you could do that, that'd be great (because it's technically a decision I guess). If I'm still around then, I would be going for the articles. Thanks! Nescientist (talk) 14:48, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
