Mewtwo in Brawl??

In your edit, you said, However, internal data features data for seven characters not in the roster; Mewtwo included. Just wondering, do you know what the other characters that were not in the roster are?? P.S. What's a rosta that you put in your edit?--Theryguy512 21:37, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

The seven mysterious pieces of fighter data are: Mewtwo, Roy, Dr. Mario, Dixie Kong, Plusle and Minun, Toon Zelda, Toon Sheik. It is too early to know how close this will be to Ditto in Melee right now. --FabuVinny T-C-S 16:05, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Plusle and Minum? So they were going to be a tag team like the Ice Climbers? Cool!--Theryguy512 22:08, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Cynthia war

im not here to start a fight, so before i go any further, could i get your insight to this? whats your opinion? MAGNEDETH 01:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I'm not for listing similarities unless there is a very close likeness. In this case, I've looked at some pictures and the resemblence is definately there. Now we just have to try to come to an agreement with RMTrev. --FabuVinny T-C-S 01:34, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
i agree. ive put up my argument (on his/her talk page). id also like to apologize for the "revert war". just doing what i think is right is all. MAGNEDETH 01:38, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
well, that seems rather harsh, but, yur the boss i guess. MAGNEDETH 02:43, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
RMTrev‎ doesn't strike me as someone who actually wants to be helpful, especially with the last comment he made. But it's only a week block so he can come back if he wants another chance. --FabuVinny T-C-S 02:51, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
ok. i dont hold grudges, and im really not a Fighting-type (ok, that was a bad joke) so i can say that ill keep an open and friendly mind when/if he returns. though, ill also be on call just in case he decides to start vandalizing things... MAGNEDETH 02:56, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

See recent changes

Please delete the redirect thankyou.PokeManiac102 03:30, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure I would have seen it without being prodded. Even if I did miss it in the recent changes, it was in the deletion category. --FabuVinny T-C-S 03:37, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Talk Page Crashes

For some odd reason, my browser (Internet Explorer 6) keeps crashing when viewing recent revisions on the user talk pages of TinaTheKirlia and Palkia24‎. I don't know what it is, but since the only one to post recently on both talk pages is Ph34r4ever, I think Ph34r4ever might be linked to these crashes, probably unintentionally. Is there anything that can be done about it without being forced to upgrade to IE7? --Shiningpikablu252 03:48, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm... A virus obtained through the Internet only affecting a single user... Did you try my talk page?PokeManiac102 03:52, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Yours loads fine. --Shiningpikablu252 03:57, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
I guess that eliminates Ivan as he recently posted on the page as well.PokeManiac102 04:02, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Heh, thanks. The pages are working fine now. Technical problems happen, and if I came out as looking like I was outright blaming you for the problems, I apologize. --Shiningpikablu252 18:26, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Kirlia's Trivia

Guy why did you delete the trivia about that in the anime was wrong? it was in a Pokémon Trainer's Choice- unsigned comment from Hfc2x (talkcontribs)

Please put the comment at the end of the page and it was not notable enough.PokeManiac102 21:44, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
There's a difference between misjudged and outright wrong. "Best choice to battle" Trainer's Choices don't really have wrong answers, as it's possible for any of the choices (even the worst choice) to beat the target Pokémon, and a screw-up is no indication that a Pokémon is thought to be of a different type. As such, "best choice to battle" is misjudged as worst-case scenario.
Now, on evolution-based Trainer's Choices, it is possible to be outright wrong if a Pokémon is associated with an unrelated evolution line. Note that these are as of Generation III; some details may have changed with the transition into Generation IV. An outright wrong evolution-based Trainer's Choice actually happened with the one in AG077. The question was "Which Pokémon evolves into Seviper?" None of the choices (Sableye, Arbok, and Suicune) were correct due to Seviper being a one-stage line, yet they said the correct answer was Arbok. It was mainly due to this faux pas that the Trainer's Choice was outsourced for season eight. --Shiningpikablu252 22:49, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
Hey I know I only wanted you to say that it was only not notable, but I think that question was about type match-ups not if any of the options were the best to fight, because in that case I know anything will be a good option. In my case I trained a kabuto in a place where there are only grass pokemon, and as I know, kabuto has weakness x4 to grass moves but I don't care. But for example (talking about type match-ups): What is the better choice to fight kabuto? Chikorita, Charmander or Mudkip? Oviously every pokemon with a good movepool could win, but the best choice will be Chikorita. Or not? Hfc2x 15:02, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
As I said in the edit summary, incorrect Trainer's Choice answers are sadly not notable (with the possible exception of Arbok's evolution) and should only be mentioned in the episode article. It certainly isn't true to say that the anime as a whole sees Kirlia as a Grass type just because Lawrence Neves got it wrong. (And Trainer's Choice was always outsourced Shiningpikablu252. 4Kids just started crediting him after the poor reaction.) --FabuVinny T-C-S 16:51, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Jigglypuff

Where is the information about Smash Jigglypuff's shininess? I didn't see it in the article. Is it OK if I put it in the Trivia?--Oxico 23:55, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Um, it's all ready in the trivia. --Theryguy512 00:27, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Did you even look at my edit, Oxico? --FabuVinny T-C-S 19:07, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Picture (gone!)

Excuse me if you are busy, but I have just noticed that Spr RG Red 1.png has, well, vanished. Do you know anything about this? TESHIGIGAS 21:37, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Tesh, DanPMK, a really ******* user at the Bulbagarden Archives, deleted it and called it a dupe.PokeManiac102 21:42, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Uh, he's a mod on the Archives. Red.png was a duplicate, so he deleted it. Admittedly, he doesn't really check what links to the duplicates and such, but still. It wasn't used on any actual pages.. Tina 21:45, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
It was used on Player character and Gender; Nevermind. TESHIGIGAS 21:46, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

And for pics. We need a better name for this pic,. *cough* --Theryguy512 00:36, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
I don't personally see the need to change file names. We do need to make use of the categories to make it easier to spot duplicates, though. --FabuVinny T-C-S 16:58, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Shaymin in Super Smash Bros. Brawl demo

I could not help but notice that after I had rewritten the paragraph dealing with the Super Smash Bros. Brawl demo in Shaymin's trivia section, in such a way that made it clear the report was suspected to be false, you decided to delete it altogether.

I am not going to reverse your edit, but I am noting my objection to that sort of pretentious behavior; it is currently being debated what became of the demo characters, and there certainly is no concrete truth at the moment, yet somehow you took it upon yourself to remove a completely objective description of the situation. I honestly hope that you reverse your own edit so as to reflect that Bulbapedia strives for objectivity, rather than the petty stances of each of its contributors. -Unown Lord 10:47, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Petty? Shaymin was not in the demo. There is no way to argue otherwise. The demo was playable a couple of weeks before the Japanese release, which is far too late to take a character out. Even if they had done that, it would still be in the excess data. There are a number of claims from Whobby that didn't pan out. These people were either mistaken or simply lying. Thus, there is no need to mention Brawl in Shaymin's article. --FabuVinny T-C-S 19:30, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

RE: Pokémon Stadiums

When the name first was announced, I thought it was the same as the prevois one. When I got to know it wasn't, I got a little bit shocked and merged them in what we can call despair. With the time, I realized my mistake and that they SHALL have different aricles. -- Pokémon Lover King Mario 18:03 (GMT +01) February, 18th 2008.

Pikachu's Final Smash

Um, Fabu-Vinny, you made a mistake. In your last edit on Super Smash Bros. Brawl, you made it say that Pikachu's Final Smash is Jigglypuff's. Since its protected, you'll have to fix it. --Theryguy512 17:38, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Ash's Pikachu:I hate you

OF COURSE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE THAT PIKACHU WILL EVER EVOLVE! BUT IT IS UNCONFIRMED WHETHER IT WILL EVOLVE! AND IF IT IS UNCONFIRMED, HOW WOULD ANYONE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS?!PokeManiac102 17:38, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Please avoid stating unconfirmed information as fact. Especially when it applies to things that you accept are impossible. --FabuVinny T-C-S 17:39, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I state not my opinion, but what is truth, that the title SUGGESTS (not that it will happen) that Pikachu MAY evolve. Again, I state not my opinion as that is not the way an encyclopedia should bePokeManiac102 17:41, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
We already know, for a fact that Pikachu DOES NOT want to evolve, remember this! Pikachu will never evolve! MoldyOrange 17:47, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Guesses made from the title are speculation and should not be misrepresented in these cases. Further more, we already have the summary that confirms the Raichu is not Ash's and that the episode is about the evolution line. And we still need to apply the common sense to be extremely sceptacle of any suggestion that the series mascot will evolve. --FabuVinny T-C-S 17:47, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Duh! Of course it won't evolve. But how do we know? I know that it won't. The Movie 11 factorPokeManiac102 17:49, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
So what is your point? --FabuVinny T-C-S 17:58, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
What point? about Movie 11?PokeManiac102 18:00, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
About why Pikachu's evolution-except-not in DP074 should be mentioned. --FabuVinny T-C-S 18:03, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I couldn't make out what you saidPokeManiac102 18:19, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

A favor...?

Would you mind editing Template:Spr so as to link to the actual game titles instead of the redirects it currently links to (i.e. Pokémon Yellow Version instead of Pokémon Yellow)? --ニョロトノ666 17:52, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

The problem there seems to be with the use of Template:pkmn. Unfortunately, that template doesn't seem to be able to be compatable with the new titles due to the selective plural use so I'm not sure what to do. --FabuVinny T-C-S 18:09, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
We could modify Template:V and put that into play on the template in question. As for paired versions, perhaps I ought to whip something up...--Shiningpikablu252 18:11, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
OK, I've whipped up Template:2v, Template:v2, and Template:2v2. 2v is basically to v what 2t is to t, except that the word "version" is included in the link (hopefully the word "version" gets into v soon). v2 links to the name as "Pokémon Red Version" while displaying just "Red". And 2v2 links to the name as "Pokémon Red and Green Versions" while displaying just "Red and Green". I don't know why Taylor thought the solution was reversing the page moves...--Shiningpikablu252 18:23, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Wonderful. Thanks, guys! --ニョロトノ666 18:24, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Protection Request

Would you mind protecting DP069? There have been numerous revert wars over it recently, most pertaining to the coloration of the featured Toxicroak. --ニョロトノ666 18:43, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

And can we do something about HadouDan? All of this user's edits are edits insisting that the Toxicroak in question is for sure not alternate-colored while a lot of the fandom agrees that it is alternate-colored. --Shiningpikablu252 18:44, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
He's not the only one, though. I've seen other users, too, such as Trainer-c and Doc Doak. --ニョロトノ666 18:54, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

I joined to edit the idiocy in the Toxicroak and DP69 article,because I had more than enough back-up for the non-shiny theory, but you guys just ignored it..., but that doesn´t mean that I will only contribute to those articles...so, thanks for the squealing. ;) DocDoak 20:03, 9 March 2008

Any time. ;) --ニョロトノ666 20:06, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Sockpuppet Suspicion

I'm sure you heard of the incident yesterday where a user called TheBlaziken­Master impersonated a known good-faith user of the same name and proceeded to vandalize Bulbapedia?

Well, I've spotted another suspicious one, potentially a sockpuppet of yesterday's vandal. A user has registered the name Pokémon Lover­ King Mario, using the same methods as yesterday's vandal to impersonate a known good-faith user of the same name. The suspected sockpuppet even copied the known good-faith user's stuff onto their own user and user talk pages. While I'm not going as far as to outright say that yesterday's impersonator and the suspicious account from today are one in the same without solid proof, is it possible to keep an eye on the suspected sockpuppet? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 17:56, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Template:Sitestub

Is it possible to get an actual image back into this template? The template is protected as per this Bulbapedia log:

  • 17:34, 14 December 2007 TTEchidna (Talk | contribs) protected "Template:Sitestub" ‎ (Notice template! [edit=sysop:move=sysop])

The image used in the template in question was later deleted as per this Archives log:

  • 09:53, 5 February 2008 DanPMK (Talk | contribs) deleted "File:Nintendo-small.jpg" ‎ (not in use)

Now, given that the template in question actually DOES use the image and the template is used on three Bulbapedia pages, that was an unfair deletion. However, I'm not going to go asking for an overturn if there's another solution, such as replacing the image in question with a:File:Nintendo.jpg and shrunk to the same size the old image was. Can something be done? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 03:46, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Well can't admins restore images? I think on Wikipedia they can...--Theryguy512 12:47, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Yes, sysops can restore images, but that's not always the best solution. --Shiningpikablu252 16:38, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
