A few rules on my talk page:

  • Use English or Romanian. Using other languages will not help me understand you.
  • Write grammatically correct. If you want me to understand what you wrote, at least write it correct. Don't expect me to decipher your words. I'm not the most grammatically correct person in the world, but at least I'm doing my best for others to understand me.
  • Always leave new messages at the bottom of the page. Otherwise, if you want to say something personal to me, email me.
  • Be respectful. As long as I show you respect, you show me the same.

"Opening Quote"
Ok,thank you,well I like your user page,but I would like it in blue style.Can I use it ? And if yes,how can I make it blue ?--DJWolfy. 14:13, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Sure, just say who made the original userpage. :P - In order to have a blue userpage, you're gonna have to do a lot of Ctrl + F and change the templates E1E1E1 and 444444 and their lightness to blue, you're gonna have to do a lot of previewing though. Masatoshi--talk 14:31, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

"Ending Quote"
I hope this answers your confusion.

Preach before you practice! ----DJWolfy 20:48, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Archiving your talk

Hello. I noticed that you've archived your talkpage. Unfortunately, you moved it to DJWolfy/Archive 1, which is in the mainspace. User talk page archives should always be in the user talk namespace. I moved it to the correct title, so don't worry about it anymore, but watch out for this happening again in the future. Thanks! TyraniThrone 19:27, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry,I'm quite new in this archive thing.How can I make sure this won't happen again?What is the correct way of moving it?

----DJWolfy 19:54, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Keep "User talk:" in the title when moving the talkpage--SandmanDP 19:59, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
I see,thank you!----DJWolfy 20:31, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Userpage editing

I've noticed you have made more than three edits to your userpage today. Instead of doing that, use the preview button so you can make all the edits at one rather than making smaller edits bit by bit on your page. Please and thank you. Frozen Fennec 16:28, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I know,but I didn't noticed the mistake only later,so I had no choice.But why is this policy against editing your userpage more than 3 times?I mean,who does affect beside the person's userpage?----DJWolfy 17:34, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
The site's server actually... the thing that keeps the site running. The userspace limit keeps the site from overloading and encountering errors--SandmanDP 17:36, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
It also helps keep it from clogging up the Recent Changes part of the site as well. Do hope you understand. Frozen Fennec 17:39, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I do,I apologize for my mistake,but I was sort-of forced because I didn't noticed the mistakes due to the fact that I edited the whole page,and there were small details that escaped me.I'll try my best in order to avoid such things in my future editings.And btw,do you two encounter the 503 error ? I encounter it at least 5 times a day.----DJWolfy 17:43, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I do encounter a 503 error from time to time but MAGNEDETH (Editor-in-Chief) is already aware of the 503 error if I remember correctly. Frozen Fennec 17:45, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm so sorry

You'll notice my new userpage construction is basically yours and Masatoshi. It's obviously not ready. I meant to build it first, ask, then submit, but I pressed Save page instead of show preview. I promise, besides the obvious information customizations to change dimensions, colors and shapes so it wouldn't be the exact same. I just hope you and Masatoshi can give me your blessing.--SandmanDP 17:52, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry,you can copy it entirely if you wish.It doesn't botter me.----DJWolfy 17:54, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I can't copy it entirely... that's identity theft, and I'm not like that :P--SandmanDP 17:55, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Well,I meant the template,but maybe we have the same things in common so it wouldn't be identity theft.:P Btw if you find out how to change the color of that white/grey square in which are the userboxes,let me know.It's the only thing I can't manage to edit it.----DJWolfy 17:58, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the help--SandmanDP 00:10, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Do you mean usertags? Frozen Fennec 00:18, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Me ?----DJWolfy 00:23, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Yes you. If you mean the background of the various usertag/boxes, you would have to go to where you got them from on here, go to edit the page on that usertag/box template and edit it, then copy it and paste it on your page. Frozen Fennec 00:27, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
I know,but I have on my page a lot of I guess I know how to get them,if that is what you meant.----DJWolfy 00:29, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Favorite Pokemon box

Not sure if you have widescreen on your computer/laptop or not but I see that when I look at your userpage it stretches the width of the page a bit. Could reduce it from 12 to 11 and it will still look nice. Not trying to say what to do, just a minor suggestion if you don't have widescreen is all. Frozen Fennec 19:33, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Well my screen has aproximately 50 cm.I've reached my userpace limits per today,but you're welcome to edit it and if I don't like it I'll just reverse it back :p.----DJWolfy 19:37, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Ah, alright then. Maybe at another time if there might be an error needing fixing. Focusing on editing deck templates (for the Pokemon Card Game on GBC) today. Frozen Fennec 19:39, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Ok,hey btw do you happen to know a link to both the original Pokémon logo and motto put togheter(png)? I would need them to use it on my "This user's favorite anime thing"----DJWolfy 19:41, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Not at all. Although going to the Gotta Catch 'em All and Pokémon page shows both parts. I suppose you could have them centered and stacked. However I feel simply using the Pokémon logo from the Pokémon page would be good enough. Gotta Catch 'em All just applies to the games. Frozen Fennec 19:51, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Move descriptions

Hi, I replied to your comment about move descriptions on talk page's talk page before, but I went away for a while and only just noticed your reply. Since I thought it would be weird to have a conversation between the two of us on her talk page, I decided to reply here. To answer your question, the template's talk page contains all the info you were interested in. --SnorlaxMonster 04:39, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks ! But I don't understand the "List of game descriptions that should be present for moves introduced in each generation" section. It says there that RSE is present in Generation I, II and III but not in IV and V while BW is present in all. I mean, RSE isn't a part of generation IV and V but is it a part of the first 2 also ?----DJWolfy 08:57, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Generation I means moves introduced in Generation I, while Generation V means moves introduced in Generation V. So moves introduced in Generation I are still present in Generation III. --SnorlaxMonster 09:17, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I understand, well, for now I'm doing small edits each day cause I do not have the necessary time due to exams, plus I have 3 seasons left from DP to see and the other two from BW. As soon as I get through with all of these, I will work more on the wiki.----DJWolfy 09:25, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Btw,do do you have any ideea where I could watch Winter Games? I've been trying to find it, but with no chances of success.----DJWolfy 09:46, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
No idea, sorry. The article says it was released on a UK VHS, but I doubt that would be easy to find (and it's a VHS...). Online I have no idea. Poké may upload it eventually. --SnorlaxMonster 10:01, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Nope, they don't have it. But I found the other one with the Stantler though,the article had no synopsis but I was able to complete it.----DJWolfy 10:16, 3 March 2012 (UTC)


WHY did you put a bunch of Pokemon under "other" major appearances?? The major appearances are for non-page worthy Pokemon that still played a major role, and now you've gone and separated them by an arbitrary distinction. An "other" section is only created when that Pokemon is owned by a major character and has its own page. WHAT WAS THE REASONING FOR THIS?? -- MAGNEDETH 17:57, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, I thought that "other" section was if its role was between major and minor. I am truly sorry and I will be more careful from now on.----DJWolfy 18:02, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Actually I've seen the Pokémon of major characters in the major appearance section (Ash's Pikachu, Jessie and Lucy's Seviper,Brock's Sudowoodo and so on) and that's why I thought the other is for Pokémon who had a bigger role than a minor appearance.----DJWolfy 18:06, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I'll admit, it probably isn't written down anywhere. Me and Kenji-girl decided on a formatting, and just went with it. There are degrees on how important some main character Pokemon are and thusly determines if they do or don't get their own section. I'm going to have to look into it. I'm sorry for the "fly off the handle" response, but I guess if you encounter a formatting decision that isn't written down anywhere, check other pages to confirm whats going on. And then tell someone that it should be written down somewhere. -- MAGNEDETH 19:15, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, you see I actually enjoy organising stuff. It is in my DNA I think. Joking, but seriously I'm pretty skilled in doing organisatory work so I really want to arrange each Pokémon's anime section when I have the time to do it. I've started from Bulbasaur and currently I've put a flagmark on Mankey. Therefore if you would give me a small guide or instructions in how they should appear by importance, I'll definitely be glad to help out.----DJWolfy 19:21, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
The sections are rather simple in their layout:
In the case of no special Pokemon, it's just the two sections. Major on top, Minor on the bottom, just like Nidoking. You can expand the blurbs if you want, but that usually takes a lot of extra time and may be best left for another project entirely.
If we're talking about a Pokemon that does have its own page, it's a little more work, but still pretty simple. Lets use Sudowoodo as an example:
==In the anime== (main heading)
===Major appearances=== (main secondary)
====Brock's Sudowoodo==== (sub secondary)
====Other==== (sub secondary)
===Minor appearances=== (main secondary)
===Pokedex entries=== (main secondary)
So you've got the main headings that are always there, but then you've got the sub heading for the owned Pokemon. That section is only for info on that owned Pokemon, and those headings only get used if the Pokemon has its own page. Otherwise, it would just go in Major and get no specific heading. The "Other" section is for major appearances that don't have their own page. There-in, an "other" heading is only used if there is a previous sub heading. I hope this makes sense. -- MAGNEDETH 20:01, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Taking this into account, wouldn't you contradict yourself ? You said "The "Other" section is for major appearances that don't have their own page." And that Nidoking doesn't have his own page rather he is featured on his trainer's page. And also by putting Brock's Pokémon in the major section you contradict again "An "other" section is only created when that Pokemon is owned by a major character and has its own page".----DJWolfy 20:13, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Let's see if i can simplify this more:

Nidoking has no page of main character ownership. No "spotlights" if you will. Gary owns one, but it doesn't have its own page, so on the Nidoking species page, it is just listed as a major appearance, along with other Nidoking that have also had major appearances in episodes. Because there is no "spotlight", then an "Other" section is not necessary.
Brock's Sudowoodo has its own page, a spotlight, so it is listed as a major appearance. The Other section is for other Sudowoodo that have appeared, but obviously aren't Brock's. -- MAGNEDETH 20:22, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm really trying to understand but the "other" thing keeps taking me to what I thought in the first place. So if a Nidoking isn't owned by nobody but still has a significant part in the story he is in the other, while if he is under ownership then he is in the major ?----DJWolfy 20:26, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't know how much better I can explain this.
  1. You're dealing with a Pokemon that DOES NOT have any ownership (like Nidoking)
  2. That page gets only major and minor appearances.
ok? next:
  1. You're dealing with a Pokemon that DOES have ownership (Sudowoodo)
  2. That page gets a spotlight sub section
  3. After the spotlight, it gets an other section
Basically, a species page only gets an other section if it has an ownership spotlight. -- MAGNEDETH 20:50, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

I know, I can be a real stress sometimes, but I'm doing it only for the sake of Bulbapedia and Pokéfans all over the world.

So Pokémon with ownership -> major appearances, Pokémon without ownership but still contribute to the scenario -> Other. Pokémon who just appear as a background addition -> Minor
If there is a Pokémon who isn't under ownership at all but contribute to the story then there is no other section,but if there is a Pokémon with ownership but it is owned by a trainer who is just a background addition or brief appearance -> Minor
Right ?----DJWolfy 20:55, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't know. I can't tell how you're spinning this. YOU are confusing ME. -- MAGNEDETH 21:08, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Ok,let's take Arcanine as an example. Gary has one => Major, Officer Jenny and Tucker have an arcanine but they are in the "Other" section. The same thing applies for Ramona and Keegan who togheter have three Arcanine which along with some fire stones were the focus of an episode. Also, an Arcanine battled against Ash's Pikachu in the Indigo League who upon defeating the Arcanine advanced in the next round. Finally Officer Jenny used an Arcanine to track down J in DP020 => Minor.

So ?
I apologise for now, but I will respond to what you will answer me tomorrow due to being late in my time zone and I have to get up early. Therefore we shall continue our discussion tomorrow and I hope this matter shall be clarified. I only wish for the best. Good night for now Chief !----DJWolfy 21:30, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Right now Arcanine is fine. Gary has a spotlight in the major section, and the rest don't have articles, so they're just listed as "other" majors. -- MAGNEDETH 21:46, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Neither has Oscar's Nidoking who only makes appearances in that episode twice but he is still listed in the "Major" plus the Arcanine from Cloud Arcanine cleary can't be minor since it is the focus of the whole episode.----DJWolfy 11:59, 5 March 2012 (UTC)


Battle Frontier = Kanto Region in anime. -Hikaru Wazana 19:23- 9 March 2012

Sorry, I knew it was during the battle frontier but I though Hoenn because most of the advanced series takes place there. I think I did that same mistake on James' Mime Jr.----DJWolfy 19:26, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

No problem. ^-^ -Hikaru Wazana 19:30- 9 March 2012

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --SnorlaxMonster 05:29, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I know, sorry for that, but I did preview and still didn't notice the mistake. I'll try to be more careful in the near future.----DJWolfy 08:00, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Welcoming Users

When welcoming users please use the {{subst:welcome}} template instead of copying the coding manually. The talk pages you created are messing up the page because you did it without the template. Please remember to use the template in the future (it can be found in the character palette below). Thanks for understanding. --Pokemaster97 20:22, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for that, I didn't notice it, it's much easier that way, thanks !----DJWolfy 20:25, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
It's all good, just making sure you're aware. :) --Pokemaster97 20:27, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

An image from DP077

I wanted to add an image of the Sakura and Tomoyo look-a-likes that I believe to be of higher quality than the one that you posted. Do you mind if I change it, or should I show you the image first? If it's the latter, is there anything wrong in posting an external link to an image here? ivantuga2 03:18, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

There is no rule that forbids posting external links. If you want to do it just press the globe button near the "Ab" button from above when editing. But you do not have to show me the image. If you think it is better than mine just upload it, remember to replace the new one wherever there is the old one then add the {{delete}} template on my image and that's that. Usually you don't have to ask for permission if your image doesn't have any watermarks and it has a better quality than the one you want to be replaced.----DJWolfy 10:04, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
I've been around Bulbapedia for some time now, actually, it's just that it's the first time I was asking to replace an image. Anyway, I've uploaded it and set the page to use the new one. ivantuga2 13:55, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

In response to your recent edit on the banned episodes page

But, there is no unproduced episodes page. ~~LDEJRuff~~ 13:16 9 April, 2012 (UTC)

On GS Ball's page.----DJWolfy 17:20, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, yes. Thank you. ~~LDEJRuff~~ 13:28 9 April, 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome.----DJWolfy 17:31, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


Yeah, sorry, I just find it easy and fun so I just wanted to "take the chance". I didn't meant to start an edit war. Sorry for any trouble I may have caused. --FinnishPokéFan92 11:05, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
PS. Keep up good job. There's nothing better to me than a complete list, in this case WTP image list. You're doing great!

Thank you ! There is no problem, I just wanted to clear things a bit, glad this was solved. Again, thanks !----DJWolfy 11:10, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry. I thought you meant "no editing war", so I didn't interfere you image addings. Sorry again. --FinnishPokéFan92 10:36, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, that template was put on the page for a reason. It's cool for now, but please next time be more careful.----DJWolfy 16:11, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Trainer's Choice

While I understand and agree with your choice to upload the images to the page yourself, could you possibly do that before adding it to all the individual episode pages? That way the page won't be inuse for so long and you won't run the risk of getting conflicted. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 15:13, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Jo, I did that same thing when I started with WTP but then I got several edit conflicts on the episodes themselves. This way I don't have to deal with more than one editing conflict. Isn't there a way to protect the page in order to be edited only by a specific user ?----DJWolfy 15:23, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Protections can only apply to either all users, autoconfirmed users, or admins only. So you'll have to just try your best to edit without conflicts. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 15:27, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
I do my best, others don't seem to do it.----DJWolfy 15:31, 14 April 2012 (UTC)


Your edit summary for this edit is quite unnecessary. It's rather rudely written, and it's definitely unacceptable to call out other users like that. I highly suggest you take some time to familiarize yourself with Bulbapedia's code of conduct. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:09, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Why ? Because of the last part ? Seriously it's my first time when I'm a bit bad and you don't know how many times I had problems editing due to him. He always edited and I kept getting edit conflict. Believe, you'd be angry too. Yeah maybe I was a bit rash but as I said I'm not editing this page for me I do it for Bulbapedia.----DJWolfy 19:12, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
And what do you mean calling him like that ? That's his username's initials as not to make a direct reference towards him.----DJWolfy 19:13, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
It really doesn't matter if you're happy, sad, angry, or feeling any other emotion, being rude and calling people out isn't acceptable behavior and won't be tolerated on Bulbapedia. Regardless if you use initials, their full username, or anything else. If you feel a user has disrespected you or done you wrong, inform a staff member rather than taking matters into your own hands. If you continue to violate the code of conduct, you may end up facing blocks. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:34, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Serious ? Look, it's the first time here on Bulbapedia. Yeah, don't make a reference to Archives, you know the story there, "moving from summary to licensing when not really needed". I pretty much understand it and I am acquainted with the code. At least you can spare me for being my 1st time. And I wasn't that rude, I just wanted to make sure he doesn't do it the 3rd time either. That's all. And btw "However, the use of "swear words" is not inherently problematic if used to prove a point or otherwise contribute to the betterment of the wiki." I didn't swear but I used "offensive words" as you might say... for "the betterment of the wiki".----DJWolfy 19:42, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Wolfy, you gotta relax a bit. You're getting a little hysterical.
Your edit summary was a bit unacceptable. If you have a problem with a user, talk to them on their talk page, or as Kogoro said, talk to a staff member. Moreover, you can't tell someone, or anyone, to not edit a page. This is a wiki, and everyone is here to edit it and improve it. -- MAGNEDETH 20:06, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm not hysterical Chief, I didn't yell or something. I wrote all these replies in a calm way. Why does everyone think I'm angry ? :)) Seriously, I am not, I am calm. I was a bit rash at first but that's that. I am human being, having my nickname Wolfy doesn't really turn me into one mindless animal. I do understand my mistake and I will not repeat it in the future. And yes you can not tell them to edit them. But you can tell them to edit them after one finishes editing. That's why the inuse template was made. I guess. Ok, please let us end the discussion. I understood from the first message from Kogoro that I should not be "rude" anymore. There is no need for 2 people telling me the same thing. And yes Deth, I do have a small problem. It's that you do not answer my questions I wrote on your talk pages. I know that you are very busy that's why, as you can see I don't insist twice on the same question. Now please, clearify my inquire about what I last wrote you.----DJWolfy 20:11, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Relax. Take it easy. Sit back and take a breather. We didn't say you were mad, YOU said you were mad (in your initial reply to Kogoro). True, the 'in use' template was made for that, but I meant you shouldn't call someone out and tell them to stay away. So just relax, calm down (you say you're calm, but you're not acting calm) and go back to what you were doing.
Also, I am a busy guy, so my replies can be delayed sometimes. -- MAGNEDETH 20:31, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes Chief, I know that they can be delayed but for example the one with Wynaut you have never answered me and it has been past days and also the one with the silhouettes. And I can take that as a way to avoid me, since you obviously are active and edit on bulbapedia but you don't reply to me. I'm not saying you do avoid me, I'm just saying that it is nice to answer me whenever you have the time. And I do apologize for making you think I am mad. As I said, I told FFP two times not to interfere with me. I thought he would understand since he's a top contributor, but alas. Anyway, these sort of things won't happen in the future. And I told him to stay away just for as long as I finish my edits.And I am acting calm, I am not agitated, and I don't use caps.----DJWolfy 20:36, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Removing Spaces

Hello, making edits to solely remove spaces is not recommended or really allowed. A few people have gotten into trouble for making these very edits in the past. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 00:14, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Wait... where did I remove space ? I actually added space. Just go into editing mode and see that it has space between them. :p Don't worry, I like things tiddy and ordered and as such I'm usually careful with this and add space where is needed. I entered editing mode and it showed me space between them.----DJWolfy 00:19, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Well it applies for both situations (I must have mixed it up while I was typing the message). Just try to combine adding spaces with larger edits so it's not the only thing that you are doing. Cheers! --Pokemaster97 00:28, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, as you can see if you check the RC, "adding spaces" it's not the only thing I do. I don't usually do it, but when I do it it's for making things tiddier. And what I've read from an admin's talk page, space must be added. And when there is nothing large to edit besides the adition of space then what ? Wait for something to happen ? ----DJWolfy 00:35, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
The point is, if you're going to add/remove spaces, don't let that be your only reason to edit that article, as doing that alone is pretty much pointless. Masatoshitalk 00:41, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

I know what you mean, but where is my fault if there is nothing more to be done to that article ? Or at least nothing more of which I'm aware. And I don't always add space, I usually do that only when it happens to spot one or something but that's that, in conclusion - rarely.----DJWolfy 00:45, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Look, I'm not trying to be difficult with you. I just said avoid if possible, I know there will be moments when it isn't possible. --Pokemaster97 00:48, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but it was not possible, therefore instead of letting it in faith's hands I've done it to look more tiddy. That is all. I know you don't want to be difficult with me, but it sounded like I clog up the RC, and that's why I thought it shouldn't be edited.----DJWolfy 00:52, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I saw before that some of them added, and I thought they should be added to the rest too.----DJWolfy 01:24, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
But more specifically, for what is that section used ?----DJWolfy 01:25, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Major/significant characters like Ash's Pikachu or Mewtwo (anime).--ForceFire 04:10, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, but them too are on the page.. ----DJWolfy 07:27, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Heading level for special abilities

Did you get permission from anyone from the staff? If you didn't, stop until we decide what we're doing with that. Actually... just stop for now, we'll see tonight if we either keep it up or revert everything. Masatoshitalk 15:31, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Well, most of the Pokémon have it and I thought this is how they are supposed to be ordered.----DJWolfy 15:40, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Why didn't you ask us first? The next time you see an inconsistency, you should ask an admin first, instead of changing them all yourself. Masatoshitalk 16:11, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Well I don't know, 80% of Pokémon have them "Special abilities" and "Gender differences" leveled under "Physiology". So, I think it means the rest have inconsistencies. ----DJWolfy 16:15, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
You still ask, because that way we might realize there's an inconsistency and we'll try to help fixing it. Also, I have my own version of BulbaBot doing the changes, so, you can either choose to keep on helping or let the bot do the work. Masatoshitalk 16:47, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

As you can see, I started editing too, I asked just to make sure. But ok, I'll continue with helping. In fact, leave it all to me if you want, I don't mind doing it.----DJWolfy 16:48, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Well then, the bot and you will change everything. Masatoshitalk 17:00, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
What bot ? Have you finished all Generation I's ? Because you edited a large number of them and I don't know if I should check them all again or not. ----DJWolfy 17:01, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Biology sections

There is no need to go and add incomplete tags. Often there isn't actually any information to go there, and putting unnecessary tags like these just encourage speculated information like we get too often. If there is nothing to go in the sections with the information that has been released, then nothing will go there. Generally biology sections are just composed of parts of the Pokédex entries anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 12:14, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

So for the Gen V Pokémon we shouldn't put incomplete tags ? And how about the pre-generation IV which have incomplete sections on Biology ? I mean, all the sections in biology should be completed even if they're mentioned in the Pokédex right ?----DJWolfy 12:37, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
If there is official information to put in the sections, then yes, it should be there. However, you may as well just add it yourself when you encounter such a situation, since all the Pokédex entries are on the page anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 12:43, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm not really good at Biology, but it seems that you are pretty skilled with it, so instead of putting tags should I let you know of them ?----DJWolfy 12:45, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Wayward Cave Image

Wayward Cave B1F.jpg

Regardless of what you did, this image still needs to be replaced with a suitable PNG because JPEG compression was used. Talk to Haxorus because he was uploading better quality images for a lot of Generation IV maps. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:20, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Meh, I thought it needed jpg not png. Well, whatever.. ----DJWolfy 19:21, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
JPEGs are OK to use on Bulbapedia, don't get me wrong. It all depends on what it was used for. Photographs of real people are a good reason to use JPEG, not PNG. Cel-shaded images are a good reason to use PNG, not JPEG. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:29, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, anyway I've reverted my edits.. all is back to how it was before... ----DJWolfy 19:30, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Minor appearances

Why are you hiding them? Even if they have no information, they do not get hidden. They are a standard header on the Species pages. If you want to make such a notiable change to pages like this, you have to ask first. -- MAGNEDETH 16:21, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I thought that if "Other" sections that aren't used can be removed, then minor sections unused should be hidden... I apologize. But is there a page or something where this things should appear ? I mean, as was our previous discussions about appearances, "I'll admit, it probably isn't written down anywhere. Me and Kenji-girl decided on a formatting, and just went with it. There are degrees on how important some main character Pokemon are and thusly determines if they do or don't get their own section. I'm going to have to look into it. I'm sorry for the "fly off the handle" response, but I guess if you encounter a formatting decision that isn't written down anywhere, check other pages to confirm whats going on. And then tell someone that it should be written down somewhere. -- MAGNEDETH 19:15, 4 March 2012 (UTC)" so.. yeah. I mean as I said on SM's talk page, shouldn't there be a manual of style on anime and games, not only on manga ?----DJWolfy 18:38, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Watching episodes online

Hey. If you want to watch episodes online, that's your own business, but please do not link to them here. Those sites are illegal and Bulbapedia wants nothing to do with them. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:48, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Whow, wait I don't watch episodes online... I just wanted to ask Kenji about a confusion, how else would it be clarified if not by showing the source ? What else can I do ?----DJWolfy 19:16, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Just mention you saw it online, and that it's the seventh movie. Not specifically where you saw it. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:28, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Got it ! Will do. But as I said, I didn't watch it online... I just looked up for a link so it will be easier to show her, I've spared her from searching links that may be broken. ----DJWolfy 20:15, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Aya's Venonat / Koga's Venonat

In the Gym Battle episode that the EP073 flashback is shown for, Koga's Venonat does no battling as a Venonat because it evolves into Venomoth right away. The battle in the flashback was indeed with Aya's Venonat. It means that the flashback itself was an error in EP073. 태권도 합기도 10:14, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Is Aya herself shown in that episode ? First of all EP073 was about Gym Badges. Aya is not a Gym Leader, therefore she can't hand badges to winning trainers. Secondly, it didn't specify when did the trainer battle Koga. It could have been before Ash.----DJWolfy 10:17, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
The flashback is mentioned in the errors section of EP073:
When Ash remembers his battles with the gym leaders, the scene where Bulbasaur defeats Venonat is shown. The Venonat was Aya's Venonat, and Ash won his Soul Badge by defeating Koga, the Gym Leader, when his Charmander beat Koga's Golbat)

Too many edits

Instead of editing one section multiple times, you should get the info organized in one location (like a Word document, notepad, or even just on a paper notebook) and then edit the individual sections accordingly. You edited Magnemite three times today to add new info. I understand you're adding info, and i appreciate the effort, but its getting a little spammy to be honest. You've edited Magnemite 7 times this week alone. You have also edited Kingler 7 times this week, and Krabby 6. These are just examples. The site is about quality, not quantity. -- MAGNEDETH 21:10, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I know, I know but the problem is that I didn't know there were more edits to be done. These things just show up, they're magical I could say. One moment you think it's done and in the next one you wake up on another article which has information related to the other one and so on. I really try to make it a bit more compact, but it's really hard when information is scattered everywhere.----DJWolfy 21:20, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
That still doesn't mean you can't pool the information before you post it. -- MAGNEDETH 05:04, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
I understand, I'll try to minimize it, but sometimes it takes a lot of quantity to make some quality. ----DJWolfy 10:53, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
No, it doesn't. Use a notepad. -- MAGNEDETH 01:52, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

In the ___ manga

Hello, DJWolfy! My question is: Why are you changing the titles to "In the <manga name> manga"? These sections are already in the "In the manga" section. This is not only redundant but spoils a simple and neat terminology. |) u |( e ® 01:42, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Wolfy, who approved the changes to the sections headers? Duke is right, these changes are pointless. -- MAGNEDETH 01:52, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Uhm, all others page had them like this. I thought that was the standard.. I looked upon the manga manual of style but didn't say how it should be writen so I just edited them for consistency.----DJWolfy 11:44, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
So you asked a staff member (perhaps Zesty Cactus, the manga head) about the issue? -- MAGNEDETH 19:12, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Uhm not really, I only brought up an issue on her talk page about incorrect information on PPM manga. But again, neither the Manual or the Code mentions about asking a staff member about consistency. No offence but if you want the rules to be properly followed then they should be properly mentioned or explained. As you can see I'm not trying to vandalize this site, I'm only trying to help it be a true guide for all Pokémon fans all over the world. I didn't knew that was such an important issue as to ask a staff member. I took as an example the pages that are given as a guide (Bulbasaur's and Charmander's) and made the others consistent.----DJWolfy 19:22, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
I already explained the importance of standardization. If you don't know for sure something is standard, ask a staff member. If the standards page has no mention of it, then it is especially inherent you ask a staff member so it can be handled and fixed for other people who may have the same question. I appreciate the effort you put in, but sometimes when you don't ask for some definition, especially on page standards, it creates more work. -- MAGNEDETH 19:41, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, ok, if that's the big issue I don't mind having all Pokémon pages standardized to just the name of the manga. On a side note, what's with all these 503 errors ? It's freaking tiring to reload a page 7 times in a row only to get the same error... ----DJWolfy 19:44, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the neater the better. You're a helpful guy, DJWolfy. Thanks for understanding. |) u |( e ® 20:38, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks ! But if you were refering to having the pages re-standardized, then I must wait for Zesty to have a look on this discussion, I already brought the issue up on her tp.----DJWolfy 20:47, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Okay I'll try to make this as straightforward as possible ^^'

I actually would prefer sections totally broken up: like ==In the manga== ===In the Electric Tale of Pikachu manga=== ===In the Pokémon Adventures manga=== ===In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga===

etc. There are some sections that just have an "In the manga" heading and then only write about Pokémon Adventures, which I find annoying cuz it's not the only manga, or even some that clumped multiple manga stories under one "In the manga" heading, ew! So I would prefer it broken up as sections, though you don't have to go out of your way to make them into sections unless you're already adding additional content. There are a few that are still ugly or vague, but I'm mostly leaving those to until I add content anyway. Meowth is a good example of how I like them. Hope that helps. --ZestyCactus 15:55, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Oh don't worry, I already made all 649P sections look like this. Thanks for your help Zesty ! Hope you're reading this Deth.----DJWolfy 15:59, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
I disagree, making titles longer won't help on low-information issues from people who think that Pokémon Adventures is the only manga. I'd prefer to avoid redundancy, but if ZestyCactus likes it this way, I'll accept it.
DJWolfy, Magnedeth is not against you, he is here to help as everyone else. |) u |( e ® 16:05, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
I didn't said that. He told me that I should ask a staff member so that's what I did. I just said that I hope he reads this so he knows I have confirmation.----DJWolfy 16:07, 13 May 2012 (UTC)


I noticed you used Template:g for linking Pokémon Center. This is considered using it as a "laziness template", and was a big issue several years ago. It should only be used for games. --SnorlaxMonster 14:33, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes ? I misunderstood it then. I thought that it was laziness using others instead of g...----DJWolfy 17:22, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Regarding "Pokémon Adventures" vs. "In the Pokémon Adventures manga"

I feel that it is quite redundant to put "In the Pokémon Adventures manga" when the section is already under "In the manga". ht14 20:36, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Ay... just read what's above. Never mind, sorta. I still think it makes more sense to have the way it was initially despite what you did... it seems to flow better. Besides, if there was only one manga (Special), then it should be ==In the manga== and then ===Pokémon Adventures===. ht14 20:38, 17 May 2012 (UTC)


So we don't clog up Kenji's talkpage, I'll take my response to you. Looking at the Petal Dance page, I see that it didn't use it at all. My mistake. ^-^; For future reference, if you ever need confirmation of a move, you can check the anime sections of each move. I watched all the episodes of Pokemon, and as I did, I wrote down descriptions for each attack, so the move descriptions are usually right. However, there's also that off chance that the Pokemon may have been ordered to do an attack, but couldn't/didn't use it, as well. XD Anyways, i hope I answered your questions. ^-^ Littlmiget123 20:52, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

As I said, I'm not sure about Petal Dance, it may have been the move or it may have been just scattered petals. It was a still image which appeared during Nando's story of how he got arrested. Well, I for one don't remember the episodes entirely so could you correct the J's Ariados and this mistake eventually ? You should check the Petal Dance move though.----DJWolfy 20:55, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Link templates

Use of link templates on pages do not have to match the example used on the list of link templates. Whether someone decides to use the a template as {{P}} rather than {{p}}, or {{badge}} rather than {{Badge}} is entirely up to whoever added the template in the first place. What is important is that the template call outputs properly, not that the capitalization of the template call matches an example. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:45, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes I know, but it's a bad thing if I want to make them consistent ?----DJWolfy 19:47, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Just like adding/removing spaces that don't need to be modified, changing the capitalization in which templates are called is simply a pointless edit. Please spend your time on something more productive to the content. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:49, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, but capitalization to non-templates is a good edit right ? Such as contest to Contest, gym to Gym and etc. ----DJWolfy 19:51, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, fixing the terms to contain proper capitalization like that is fine because it repairs a problem with the content. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:53, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Good, so while I fix a capitalization in an article I can fix a template too in the same edit right ?----DJWolfy 19:54, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Since changing the capitalization of template calls is entirely unnecessary, we would prefer you simply leave them alone regardless of what else you're doing to the page. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 19:58, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Ok.----DJWolfy 19:59, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Name rater trivia

Okay, I was unsure about where to put this, since I cannot find your e-mail anywhere, so as you said "leave any other questions at the bottom of the page", so here I am. Regarding my issue, I recently posted a trivia about the "Name Rater", speaking of the ability to create a Pokémon with the same primary ID and trainer name matching the player, and being able to rename it whilst it is still treated as a traded Pokémon with exp. distribution. I have done this myself to confirm it, and the results proved successful. I'll leave it to you to decide whether to change it or not. SnivyIzTehBomb 14:22, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Uhm, first if you want to email someone there is a special section on the left "toolbox" - > E-mail this user. But for small issues like this there's no need to email me, only if it's a private issue or such or you're incomfortable asking it in public. Secondly, when I said a new message at the bottom it means creating a new section. This can be done by pressing the "+" at the top of the page next to "edit this page". And finally, well I'm not sure since I focus more on Pokémon species and anime rather than games. It would be better if you ask Umeko the leader of Project Games, Clarky13 the leader of Project CharacterDex (which the name rater is part of) or even Werdnae the former head of the games. They should be able to clarify your inquire.----DJWolfy 15:54, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thank you for the help. I will certainly use this advice in the future. I will talk to Umeko. I asked you only because you undid my edit. I will be sure to clarify that I have researched it before I post it. SnivyIzTehBomb 20:39, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't undid the name rater edit, I just wrote in the summary that it should be checked by an expert. What I undid was the Cameron thing and I gave you a reason for that.----DJWolfy 20:41, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Jeez... Was I asking the wrong person? God. I am terribly sorry. SnivyIzTehBomb 20:52, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
What do you mean ?----DJWolfy 20:53, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
I meant, I was going to ask the person who undid my name rater issue. SnivyIzTehBomb 20:59, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Oh, that's SnorlaxMonster, the leader of Project of GlitchDex, so he pretty much knows about the other game mechanics too.----DJWolfy 21:01, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

If you don't mind me asking, how do you link pages internally and externally? SnivyIzTehBomb 21:13, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
By putting a file in brackets like this [[Pokémon]] is how you link internally and by putting in paranthesis like this [] is how you link externally. Also you have a palette box when editing at the top the "Ab" is internal while the one next to it is external. Also you could check this List of link templates.----DJWolfy 21:26, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
So like this? SnivyIzTehBomb 20:41, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Yeah but that's an external. For pages on Bulbapedia use internal like [[Cameron (Johto)]] but for pages like that it is preferably to use templates like this {{jo|Cameron}}.----DJWolfy 11:47, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

As for why I removed your addition to Name Rater SnivyIzTehBomb, it was because it was pretty much cheating device-based trivia, and we don't generally note cheating device-related info. However, what you found did raise the question about whether the secret ID does actually need to match, so I brought it up on the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:39, 26 May 2012 (UTC)


We've already told you not to edit articles only to add/remove spaces and capitalizing the first letter of the template in order to justify the edit. I'll give you some examples of what I'm talking about. It's okay if you fix the spaces when you have something substantial to contribute with, such as fixing a misspelling, or maybe just adding/removing a piece of information, but it's not okay to do it when you just change the template name from uppercase to lowercase (unless directly needed). Spaces aren't a big concern and thus we don't need to fix them urgently, we don't need anyone to go around Bulbapedia fixing the spaces since the wiki treats multiple spacing as a single one-character space. When we say something, we don't do it to waste our time. Please remember not to do such pointless edits in the future. Masatoshitalk 21:54, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Will do.----DJWolfy 10:50, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Apparently you did the same thing earlier with all the number disambigs. If you must make these edits, can you at least mark them as minor? It's a bit inconsiderate to the other users who want to look at the recent changes after being offline for a while. --ケンジガール 10:43, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
What? No, I didn't do the same thing. I've capitalized the word browser to Browser and while I was there I fixed the space too.----DJWolfy 12:55, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
Enough with the pointless edits. Unless something is actually broken, don't change it. As the saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Werdnae (talk) 01:49, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Uhm... exactly what ?----DJWolfy 07:45, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

This edit and the many like it. Thumbnails auto-size, template capitalisation doesn't matter. Making an edit solely to fix things like that is a complete waste of server resources and your time, as well as clogging up the recent changes. The former of which is especially important coming up to the release of B2W2 as visits spike. Werdnae (talk) 08:02, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I thought that adding the size to thumbnails should matter. But whatever.----DJWolfy 08:03, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
They don't. That's why you will stop adding it now unless there's a valid reason for you to do it, seriously, stop doing that. Even if you're changing something else, do not add a size to the thumbnails. Enlarging the picture by a few pixels counts as a pointless edit. Masatoshitalk 04:07, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Ok.----DJWolfy 11:54, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Also, {{DL}} really doesn't need to be using the display text. If you would be using display text, it's really better to just use a # and a [[]] link. So {{DL|User talk:DJWolfy|Look:}} is fine, but {{DL|User talk:DJWolfy|Look:|read this}} would be better as [[User talk:DJWolfy#Look:|read this]]. This doesn't mean go make edits solely to remove it, just stop adding it (and it's okay to remove it if it isn't the primary reason for your edit). --SnorlaxMonster 14:39, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Why is it better ? ----DJWolfy 14:45, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Because there is no point using a template when it is shorter without it. And not using templates can sometimes come in handy (on pages with lots of templates, and if we ever want to mass edit that template). --SnorlaxMonster 15:11, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Interesting...----DJWolfy 15:13, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Hey, remember what I told you less than an hour ago about the usage of DL? [1] --SnorlaxMonster 15:54, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Wait... What's wrong ? I don't exactly get it.----DJWolfy 15:55, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

You're still adding the template when it's not needed. [[Poison (status ailment)#Moves|moves which can poison]] is shorter in length than {{DL|Poison (status ailment)|Moves|moves which can poison}}. Masatoshitalk 16:01, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh.. I think I get it now. ----DJWolfy 16:03, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Minor edits

How many times have we told you to make good quality edits instead of multiple small ones? If I recall, I myself told you to stop making multiple edits to articles, and instead lump them into one edit. Now sure, sometimes that can be a little difficult, but if you would actually bother trying then you would find it isn't. I know you aren't trying because these edits show me you didn't bother to listen to us. That is insubordination, and you are being blocked for it. Now, it would be unfair to block you for just some little stuff like that, but look at your talk page. It is full of staff members telling you to fix your editing, and you haven't. Fix it. Quality, not quantity. -- MAGNEDETH 00:12, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


Sorry for the accidental rollback. I was on mobile and hit the link for rollback instead of diff (since it's right underneath of it unfortunately). You changed it back before I could undo myself, so yeah. --Pokemaster97 14:08, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

No problem dude. We all make mistakes. On your mobile ? Is there a mobile version ? I thought that BP didn't accept the app made for it... Or you just entered on the desktop version ?----DJWolfy 14:10, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
No, I meant I was on Bulbapedia from my phone which makes everything (including links) pushed together. There isn't a mobile app for Bulbapedia that I know of. --Pokemaster97 14:18, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh on the desktop version then (normal). It is... but it's a bit complicated. Have a look here.----DJWolfy 14:42, 13 June 2012 (UTC)


Hey DJWolfy, can you slow down a bit on your edits please? While some of those edits are productive, you should look at the articles as a whole to see what else could be changed instead of merely focusing on one aspect of the article. There are many changes that could be made, including minor spelling and grammar corrections. Take your time; it's not a rush. ht14 16:24, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

I do take a look, add space where needed and fix templates.. but I don't always find grammar mistakes and it would be tiring to read the whole page. Steph's the one with the eagle-eye. She can spot mistakes where no one can.----DJWolfy 16:27, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
While that may be true, it is good to make an effort to do so. Your edits in articles are about a minute apart, which means you quickly skimmed through it. To make edits as productive as possible, careful note should be made in the whole article. Add info to it if necessary, or condense it. Many articles are wordy in some way, or they don't make sense if you read it carefully. ht14 16:32, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Well, I can't add info to articles I'm not acquainted with, but I also fix the type hypenation mistake.----DJWolfy 16:35, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
