Uh, I appreciate your image categorisation work, but it would be better if you do so on Archives, where a system of image categorisation already exists, not on Bulbapedia. - 振霖T 16:09, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I was planning on categorizing everything on both. Seeing anything out of sync like that aggravates my OCD. MK 17:42, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Archives

Um, I think I can help (even though I'm not Zhen Lin)! I just went on, and it's not protected. I think you just have to make an account on Archives. Your account on Bulbapedia and an account on Archives are different. --Spr 3e 115.gifTheryguy512Spr 3e 202.gifSpr 3e 327.gif 14:23, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

It's as if people are stalking my talk page. No, your problem is that you have not authenticated your email address. Please do so. - 振霖T 14:25, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I could have sworn I had done so, unless that was a new development to stop spamers. MK 14:26, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Prototypes

Are you sure changing all the beta pages into "Prototypes" is a good idea. --Clarky13 05:02, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes. That's the correct word. MK 05:02, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
No, tte said no.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:03, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
All that information is about was was going to be put while they were making the game not about being left out before the release.--FF(edits-talk) 05:05, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

But why?

Why are your moving <name> beta to <name> prototype? they're basically the same meaning.--FF(edits-talk) 05:02, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

No they aren't. Beta is a specific development stage. Prototype refers to anything before the final release. MK 05:03, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Clarky13 beat me to it anyway.--FF(edits-talk) 05:04, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, FF. :p Yes, I don't think it's such a great idea and so does the rest of us. Think of all the unneeded changing we'll need to do. TTE right. Its pointless and more correct to say "beta". --Clarky13 05:09, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
No, saying beta is incorrect, and it's not pointless. And I just DID all the changing. MK 05:09, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Mags is protecting them, so lay off alright.--FF(edits-talk) 05:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Lay off what? I only moved them once. MK 05:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
I meant forget about it.it stays as beta.--FF(edits-talk) 05:12, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Man, you know you guys don't need to be so paranoid about 'onos and administrator is going to get me!' XD. MK 05:14, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
We're a wiki and we to get everything correct. --Clarky13 05:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Did you know, it's best not to think like that.... or else we will start to get paranoid >.>--FF(edits-talk) 05:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! ---- evkl (need to talk?) 16:27, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to break in, but at least to me the page in question looks like a draft of a future mainspace article. I may be wrong, though. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 16:32, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, it is. And... I added over 9,000 bytes of information in the last edit. I hit the preview button continuously for about an hour :P MK 16:33, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Meh, that's what I get for just trolling RC. Sorry! -- evkl (need to talk?) 16:37, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Castform Sprites

After seeing your edit summary in the recent Changes, I tested it out with a Castform on Route 215, where it is constantly raining, in Platinum. Even though it was in its rain form it still showed the nomal form in the minisprites on the attack option and in the switch Pokémon menu. Werdnae (talk) 21:02, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Gah, I hate when I get bad information. Thanks dude. - MK (t/c) 15:30, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Blue(J) data

Here you go: http://suprise.oddigytitanium.com/blue.txt

That's basically just ripped direct from the ROM, and not prettied up too much. The Pokemon are sorted in order of percentage chance they appear: 25% 15% 15% 10% 10% 10% 5% 5% 4% 1%. So for instance, Pikachu appears in the Viridian Forest rarely, at level three 4% of the time, and level five 1% of the time. You'll notice that there's not too much difference between this and Red and Green, aside from some small changes in the Safari Zone and Seafoam Islands and such. For the most part, in the places that Red and Green differ, Blue will go with one or the other, and stay exactly the same otherwise. Mostly.

Surf and Fish data are identical, just like Red and Green. The number that shows after the zone name is an indicator of how often Pokemon will show up. So, it'll be high in places like routes with tall grass, but low in caves and such because you don't encounter them as often. Even if it sometimes doesn't seem that way. ;)

Let me know if you have any questions. Spinner008 04:41, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the data. I was wondering if I would have to rip it myself eventually. - MK (t/c) 12:19, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
