Welcoming

I noticed that you had copy pasted the welcome template to welcome someone. Yeah, that's not how you're supposed to do it... you have to use this {{subst:welcome}} to welcome someone. Please use this next time ok? Ataro 18:12, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Images

I just wanted to make you aware that the staff here prefer .png images instead of .jpg. I'm telling you this cause the image you uploaded of the Poké Spot Monitor was a .jpg. Just thought I'd let you know so if the file was deleted, you'd know why. :D Also you can upload a new version of a file without uploading an entirely new file. At the bottom of an image page, it should say "Upload a new version of this image" or something of the sort. Using that will save you the hassle of putting in a new file name onto the pages. :3 Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 21:36, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I couldn't figure that one out and the original version was also a jpg as well. Frozen Fennec 21:38, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Manga birthdays in trivia

You can't remove something because "It is already in the infobox". The infobox is a supplement to the article. It helps summarize it in a way. It should NOT be a replacement for information in the article. An article with 1 sentence and a full infobox would be worse then an article with a full paragraph of information that can all be found in the infobox and a picture. Hope you understand. Thanks, Blake Talk·Edits 17:54, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Well that helps a bit. Still alright to go through articles and change the "Name" part at bottom to "In other languages" correct?Frozen Fennec 22:40, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Only if the section doesn't include the English and Japanese names. Those two don't count as "other" languages. Werdnae (talk) 22:44, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Will do then, can't wait to hopefully be autoconfirmed soon as well. :-) Frozen Fennec 22:45, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Page deletion

Removing the content from a page doesn't delete it. Only admins can delete pages. To let us know that a page needs deletion, please add {{delete}} to the top of it. This automatically adds it to Category:Pages to be deleted, while still allowing us to view the content of the page without having to search through the history. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 03:56, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for informing me of this. Will keep it in mind for future pages. Frozen Fennec

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! ----Pokemaster97 16:14, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Yea, I know. Right when I think it's correct it turns out the link is still incorrect. I still preview things for most part. Thanks for telling me this though. Frozen Fennec

Removing sections

Just because a large chunk of text is removed, that doesn't necessarily mean it is a bad thing. Please do not revert i back without a rebuttal to the information that was provided for the initial removal. It was already explained that those weren't mistakes because the animators used more specific source material than normal--SandmanDP 23:57, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Link templates

Hey, please make a habit of using the Link templates. They're there to make linking to specific pages easier. I'd prefer not to have to do this again. Also, make sure you're spelling a Pokémon's name correctly. You misspelled Marill throughout that entire article. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:42, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Alright then. I shall make sure to do that in the future. Sorry about doing that. Also sorry about misspelling Marill's name constantly too. Frozen Fennec 13:04, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Trivia Question

Hello there fellow Bulbapedian. I see you haven't answered my e-mail so I'm just going to write you here. Well why do you say that the trivia I wrote on AG159 isn't trivia material ? It isn't common for Team Rocket to blast such different,is it? --DJWolfy. 13:57, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

As far as trivia gos, I don't really see how it is important enough to go there. Then again I'm mostly collecting the cards, some books, and just playing the games. I really should consider watching the show more often though. If you feel it is important then feel free to add it again. If a sysop/admin removes it though, don't re-add it as that just results in edit wars clogging up recent changes. Have a great day. Frozen Fennec 21:04, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
Thought so.Well, no Admin objected so far,so I think it is a great material for Trivia.Thank you!----DJWolfy 14:04, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
No problem. Feel free to ask stuff if you have more questions. Frozen Fennec 15:21, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
Btw,I like that Pokébox at the bottom of your userpage.I don't know if it is or not your personal creation so I am asking you if I could use a modified version of it on my userpage ? ----DJWolfy 22:50, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
I didn't make it personally but I remember seeing someone else at the time when I put it on my page using it. The row sizes were a little smaller though. Instead of my current size for each row, they had it at 8. I liked it so I put it on my page. Feel free to put it on your page and modify it if you wish. Frozen Fennec 22:53, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you!----DJWolfy 22:56, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Notes about the TCG templates

Where to start. The links for the Trainer cards you were adding were incorrect. First off, they are fine the way they are. However, if you were to change them, you'd need to change the TCG Template to the TCG ID template, and also add the number to the end of the template. {{TCG ID|Rising Rivals|Bebe's Search|89}}. The link has to link to the redirect of the most appropriate release for that card. A deck from 2005 can't be using a 2011 release of Rare Candy, now can it? No. That's why the links are the way they are. Additionally, I think the reason your link to Stormfront wasn't working was because you were trying to spell it "StormFront"? None of the sets are CamelCase.

Mother Flygon has the outdated template for a separate reason. It's a deck archetype, which are outdated because of how the formats and set rotations work in the TCG. When you add the template to Theme Decks, you need to specify the type of Trainer card the cards are. Also, if you do the GB Decks, use the template used on Great Quake Deck, not the one for theme decks. They are different. MaverickNate 20:01, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Ah, that makes more sense to me. I saw them and didn't add a number as they were lacking them originally. As for Stormfront, I spelled it as Stormfront and still got a red link, not sure why it was doing so. Alright then, will be sure to do the decks from the Pokemon GBC game in that format. Thanks for showing me what went wrong with editing. Frozen Fennec 20:05, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Thought I would ask before editing the pages. If I use the Great Quake Deck as a base template for the other decks in that game then the level part is no longer necessary is it? Frozen Fennec 03:20, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Correct. MaverickNate 07:27, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thanks!I'm not good at making paragraphs.Btw,Pokémon must always start with capital letter?----DJWolfy 15:25, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Paragraph writing is easy. Just make sure to try writing them like this.And not like this. When starting a new sentence, hit the space button then write so the words and all aren't scrunched together. As for paragraphing. I try to keep count of how many I've written so far. When I get 6-7 written. I hit enter twice and start a new paragraph so it won't end up as a wall of text. Lastly, yea, Pokémon is always capitalized. Hope that helps. :-) Frozen Fennec 15:32, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
It sure does,thanks!----DJWolfy 20:06, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Gee,we should make a team :p. I complete synopsis while you correct and paragraph them. Anyways thanks for the minor correction. Although I found the original word was in this context "then they are mistaken for".----DJWolfy 21:38, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Haha, maybe but I have better things to do than trying to fix mistakes all day. Going to go back to updating TCG deck pages now. Fun time. :-) Nice signature too, might try to make my own sometime when I give my user page a new look or something. Frozen Fennec 21:40, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Obvious

That's pretty obvious,plus it's the same for almost all legendaries. ex: normal and shiny beasts, Lugia and her baby, regis in M09 and brandon's regis etc. so I don't really see the point in keeping it. Plus the other "in the anime" section of other legendaries don't mention the game thing.----DJWolfy 15:39, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

I left it since in the movie it was shown to be able to breed. The only other legendary Pokémon I've seen capable of breeding or more than one of is Lugia, Regis, Celebi, Mew, and Deoxys. Don't think I've seen any of the other legendaries having more than one of themselves especially Mewtwo who is a one of ak ind along with others. Frozen Fennec 15:42, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah,that's why I said for almost all. Of course you won't see Arceus twice cause it's the original one or mewtwo since it is itself a human creation. But usually 580-600 stat legendaries are more than one. That's why I think it isn't necessary for "the game" thing to be on Latias' page. Also the same thing it is already mentioned on their page "In all but one of the games, there appears to only be one of each legendary Pokémon, but in the anime, there is more than one of most legendary Pokémon. This may just mean that the creators of the game intended the player to only ever happen to meet one of them canonically, and in fact there are others elsewhere which the player does not encounter." - unsigned comment from DJWolfy (talkcontribs)
I see now, kind of strayed away from what you were saying. I'll fix that up on that page then real quickly. :) Frozen Fennec 15:51, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Don't worry,took care of it already.----DJWolfy 15:53, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Alright then, thanks for that. :) Frozen Fennec 15:54, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Citations

I noticed that you deleted my citations. Sorry, but I'm used to Wikipedia, where you add lots of citations.Raichu409CID 23:33, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Well here at Bulbapedia we don't need citations for absolutely everything. :) Frozen Fennec 23:34, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

?

What happened to your Pokébox ? :p Just askin'.----DJWolfy 20:05, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, found them.----DJWolfy 20:06, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Nice to see you found them. Moved them to a new subpage so it would make the main page less cluttered looking for me. That and I plan to redo how it looks pretty soon. :) Frozen Fennec 20:07, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Why would you want to redo it ? ----DJWolfy 20:46, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
TO make the page look nicer, that and I plan to do it on my birthday or the day after. :P Frozen Fennec 20:49, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh to modify it you meant, I thought to redo (opposite of undo).----DJWolfy 20:50, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
If it's not personal,although you mentioned it.----DJWolfy 20:55, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Thursday. Going to finish up what I'm doing today, see if I can hit that 1,000+ edit mark for the first time ever. :D Frozen Fennec 21:06, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Wait a minute, you still haven't got 1000 edits by now ?----DJWolfy 19:30, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

I did but redirects don't count toward mainspace edits. I was talking about getting 1,000 in a day, overall, I think I've probably done a good amount of edits. I have things on my to do list on here. Frozen Fennec 19:32, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, then you're a conscious uhm person then, I thought you haven't attained 1000 edits sincer your registration. Actually you didn't specify.----DJWolfy 19:36, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Eh, probably have. I left off redirect to TCG articles for Keldeo, Meoletta, and Genesect seeing as how they have yet to be revealed or have any cards of them yet. Frozen Fennec 19:40, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Well,never agreed with TCG, won't start now. I don't see any point in making cards. They should focus more on real-life simulation battles. That's a thing I would pay to use.----DJWolfy 19:46, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Opinions, opinions. I personally find it just a tad bit more challenging as each card has set moves and they can't be changed. Frozen Fennec 19:53, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Yep, another thing that doesn't reflect true Pokémon style.----DJWolfy 19:56, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Btw you made a small grammar mistake on your user page. It's needed be not need be.----DJWolfy 19:58, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Well thanks for pointing that out then. I'll go and fix it. Frozen Fennec 20:00, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

You said something about getting 1000 edits in a day. Is there a way to see how many edits have you done in a day ?----DJWolfy 13:16, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

No there is not. Only admins can see that. I don't mind though since I can see why only they can. It helps prevent users from trying to spam to get an award too. :) Frozen Fennec 15:32, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

M1 talk page undo

The Talk page policy states not to respond to messages older than 6 months UNLESS you have valid reason to do so. I had a valid reason to revive the discussion. Yamitora1 18:07, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Generally old comments over six months old should not be revived, however, if there is a legitimate reason to bring it up again, please do so. From the FAQ. Having watched the movie myself a couple of weeks back, he felt this his clones were much better and was going to clone all the Pokémon currently there and storm the world with the clones. You can disagree if you wish though, not saying I'm absolutely right but I feel that's what he was up to when he did what he did in the first movie. Frozen Fennec 18:19, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I have it stored on my pc in flv format and saw it today.
After Ash's Charizard was defeated, Mewtwo materialized 3 of his clone balls saying "As the victor, I now claim my prize, your Pokémon!" He then captures Ash's Charizard, Shellshocker and Bruteroot in that order. Misty asks "What are you going to do with those Pokémon!?" Mewtwo responds "I will extract their DNA to make clones for myself! They will remain safe on this island with me, while my storm destroys the planet" This is before he materialized more clone balls and Psychic Ash into Brock. He then sends the swarm after everyone as ash and the others try to make a break for it.
Although Mewtwo hadn't cloned Ash's Charizard, Shellshocker or Bruteroot in that instance, he made it clear he planned to later as far as the English dub is concerned. That is what I relayed in the revival comment. Plus I'm not the only one to post on it way after 6 months. The original post was 22:14, 3 October 2007 (UTC) and it wasn't responded to until 21:50, 11 February 2009 (UTC) Yamitora1 18:53, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Hmm.. I guess I should watch it again to confirm it. I've been busy playing White lately and not much else sadly. And yes, I noticed that right after I reverted it. :( Frozen Fennec 18:56, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Theoretically, Mewtwo would also need the extra DNA from Ash's Charizard, Shellshocker and Bruteroot to sustain a healthy population of his clones. While where he obtained the genetics for the first Charizardtwo, Blastoisetwo and Venusaurtwo is speculation, most agree it was somehow from Charmandertwo, Squirtletwo and Bulbasaurtwo, despite them dying & Mewtwo destroying the lab and any possible surviving genetic samples directly or indirectly. In any case, while he successfully cloned them, even somehow evolved them, it was indicated that there were many problems during the first cloning procedures/processes because the kept dying. This leads the viewer to believe there is some kind of genetic defect to cause this deterioration. Plus out of all the clones, these three had the most drastically different markings which are also speculated to be from defects in the genetics. So no mater what, its a good bet Mewtwo needed and would use the DNA sooner if not later. Yamitora1 19:23, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I see what you are saying there. However did it look like he was using the stuff right away and the clones looked close to perfect so maybe he made a near perfected system from the rubble he left on the island after destroying it. That and they were shown to be able to breed in the second movie that he was in, albeit they were in final forms or current stage of their evolution line rather than starter/baby forms. Frozen Fennec 19:30, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately Ash destroyed the machine before anything else was crested. The last clones were just barely out of incubation before everything blew up. We have to go by Mewtwo's actions of capturing Ash's Charizard, Shellshocker and Bruteroot in the first place to indicate his future plans for them and their genetics. Mewtwo is theatrical, but I doubt he'd just capture three Pokémon for their genetics for no reason. Yamitora1 20:02, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Torterra Trivia

Gible also never defeated one of Paul's Pokémon. That trivia is invalid.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 22:31, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Move descriptions

Why don't you add the BW descriptions that you remove from the infobox to the description template?--Den Zen 21:05, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

I was unaware which gen the description came from. I'll go and do those now. :) Frozen Fennec 21:07, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Event Distribution Zekrom on Haze article

Sometime during the week I added the Latest Event Distribution Zekrom to the haze article. For the obtain in section I wrote Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Is that the right thing, or is it something else? I'm more fluent in the anime than the games.

#   Pokémon Type Obtained with

Ok, thanks.Yamitora1 21:24, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Edit on Indigo League page

I found a similar piece of work on the Johto League trivia section and I saw that the opposite applied to the Kanto League gym leaders so I thought I'd edit the Kanto League page as well. Was there a problem? Arceus101 22:19, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Saying all the gym leaders have a type disadvantage to the next one. By this I would assume that the next gym leader has a type that is super-effective to the previous gym leader except Brock as there is no gym leader battled before him. A couple of them said resistant, not really the same sound to me as the previous gym leader being weak to the next one. Frozen Fennec 00:49, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Move descriptions

Hi, I realize you're not really part of any Bulbapedia project, but since you seem to be working the descriptions for the 3D games, could you also point me to moves that are missing descriptions from the main series games (specifically GSC, RSE, and DPPt)? I'll be able to work on retrieving them if I need to. Thanks. Cheers, Haxorus 08:35, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Anything here before Hone Claws (as that is when the Gen V moves begin). I'm not truly working on the 3D games, I'm trying to get all the handheld descriptions too. :P Thanks for helping with the moves too. Frozen Fennec 15:49, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
559 moves... wow, that's quite some work. But I'll see what I can do. :-) Cheers, Haxorus 01:14, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Same here. I'll add on the Stadium and Stadium 2 descriptions when I get to playing them. :) Frozen Fennec 01:31, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Walkthrough Rival Boxes

I noticed you adjusted the formatting on the Rival's Pokémon boxes on Emerald Walkthrough (Section 4) a few days ago. According to the Project Walkthroughs page, formatting on Rivals' Pokémon should be horizontal, not vertical, even though it extends out beyond the screen. I like it the other way, but that's the policy. - poikins 00:28, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Alright then. Thanks for letting me know. Frozen Fennec 00:50, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Question

Heya, where else would I put that question? I wanted to sort the pokes into columns by EV, but everything I try ends up a mess. The whole template thing is so confusing. would there have to be a seperate template for rows where there was empty spots before the pokes? - unsigned comment from Saiph charon (talkcontribs)

Feel free to add it down on a new section but don't add it to some other section on a talk page unless having something to add to it. Or if it is over 6 months old as the case was, best thing to do is hit the + at the top of the page and start a new section. Frozen Fennec 18:10, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Registeel

Sorry, but how is the previous revision "better worded"? Contractions are informal and shouldn't be used in formal writing such as the Bulbapedia mainspace. I can understand the repetition of "the legendary golems" not being quite optimal (although something other than the super-informal "Regis" still needs to be used), but there was no need to revert the contractions back in, was there? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 23:52, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Actually, as I was taught, informal language is text speaking or how one would talk to another on a cell phone usually spelling things incorrectly. Regis is also formal since the Regis are called, legendary golems, Regi trio, or simply Regis. If the contraction was something like they'll or ain't I could understand since those would be informal. As it is, it's is quite common to use and very formal. Hope that helps you understand a little bit. Frozen Fennec 23:58, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
If you insist, I'll let it go your way, but I'm afraid I have to respectfully disagree for the moment. I've always been taught that no contractions are ever considered formal - I've even seen "it's" -> "it is" used in examples in textbooks and even Wikipedia. (As for "Regis", as fanon-y as that term sounds, our own article apparently uses it, so I guess I have to grin and bear it. I won't mention it again.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 00:55, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, nice to see differences are put aside on the Regi part, as for the "it is" and "it's" thing. I suppose we were simply taught about them differently. Do feel free to come back and discuss it any time though. :) Frozen Fennec 01:18, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Reshiram

Also, that stuff I added about Reshiram is nessisary. It talks about why it is called "Fusion" in the first place, so you can mix it up with another attack. Matt D. A smart man 22:07, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Next time you correct a Bulbapedia article, move information to the correct place instead of deleting them as a whole. Matt D. A smart man 22:07, 16 June 2012 (UTC)- unsigned comment from Mdavis7298 (talkcontribs)

Feels more like speculation to me for the time being. Also sign your comments with ~~~~ when leaving comments on a talk page or user talk page page. Thank you. Frozen Fennec 23:47, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

User Page Template

Hi there! You were the one who welcomed me to Bulbapedia. :-) Remember me?

Anyways, I recently got the privilege to edit my user space. I was wondering if I could use the template you used for your user page. I don't want to take it without permission.

Thanks for your time! Empress Empoleon (talk) 19:43, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

This is OK with me. As long as it doesn't look exactly the same. I plan to update it sometime too. :) Frozen Fennec 15:25, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! I plan to change the colors and the borders and such, so it definitely won't look exactly the same. ;-DEmpress Empoleon (talk) 18:03, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, wow, since I'm not that experienced with templates, it came out looking all wrong. DX Because I can only edit my user space once a day, I have to wait till tomorrow. Darn.Empress Empoleon (talk) 18:03, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I could help fix it up if you wish. :) Frozen Fennec 13:29, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Serene Grace > Secret Power

Ok. I know for a fact that this is true. 100% no doubt. Now how do I prove this? The people over at Smogon didn't believe me either till that guy looked in the game's code and pointed out I was right. What will it take to get this edit approved?

Thank You For Your Time --V4Victini (talk) 01:55, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Well for one, you need to wait for further input on the talk page first. If other people can validate that it is true then it can be added. From what I saw, one person disagreed with you, that shouldn't be incentive to automatically remove that segment. So just wait on doing so for now. Frozen Fennec 03:23, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

User Page Template (2)

Hi! :) ... I'm just going to continue smiling awkwardly because I don't know you, and you don't know me... :) Anyway, I recently asked Empressempoleon if I could borrow (okay, steal is more appropriate, but it's not stealing if I asked, right?) her user page template, and she told me to ask for your permission first. So, could I use it for my user page? Please? I'll change the colors and everything. Thanks :) YOLO~ (Stalkers Allowed) 11:45, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Fine with me if you wish to do so. :) Frozen Fennec 19:44, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Won't happen again. Frozen Fennec 19:47, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Edit wars

While what you did in regards to Mimey was a noble act, participating in an edit war isn't recommended. If you notice a user trying to start up an edit war, it's highly advised that you inform a member of the staff and let us handle the problem from there. Taking the bait and continuing to revert, even for the side of accuracy and correctness, is a violation of policy. Thanks for understanding, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 22:25, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

I shall do that in the future. Thanks for letting me know. Frozen Fennec 22:27, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

TCG move errors.

It's rather not good idea listing moves that didn't exist yet. For example, few Ampharos cards had Bolt Strike if I remember (but under different English name) on them. Didn't add that, the move wasn't in games until three generations and almost eleven years later* - I also fixed table (there was redundant |- everywhere). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:37, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I had just removed this trivia not more than six hours before you added it again.
Furthermore, our database is not ready to be doing this page, and I'm rather disappointed and annoyed that no one decided to contact the Head of TCG before attempting this page to make sure we were ready, or if plans weren't already being done. Any work on it right now is futile, because not all the card pages even exist, let alone have correct information regarding the cards' moves. There are several things that needed to happen before this page could have been started correctly. 1) A more appropriate table needed to be created. 2) All the origin sections needed to be double checked to remove speculation and false information. 3) TCG sections for all moves, abilities, Warrior skills, etc needed to be created (which can't even be completed until Bulbapedia's search gets repaired). 4) Error cards need to be researched and a system for classifying errors needs to be developed. After these four things are finished, then we would have been able to start work on TCG move errors. This page is not going to exist in the end. It is going to be an extremely condensed sub section of the Error cards page. Next time you try to work on such an extremely large TCG undertaking, please talk to me so that we can at least develop a system for 100% completion and accuracy, because I don't like having to undo someone's work everytime you decided to add an inappropriate trivia: like this Pokémon knowing Lick (したでなめる) when it actually knows Lick (なめる), or Pidgeotto knowing Twister (たつまき) when it actually knows Twister (ツイスター), OR Brock's Golbat knowing Dive (ダイビング) when it actually knows "Dive" (スピードひこう) (later translated as Speed Dive). The inappropriate trivias will only exist simply because there is a rift between accuracy, what needs to be said, and what exactly is going on with the cards
There are a lot of things that needed to happen first, specifically with finalizing what needs to be said in each card's origin section. Talk to me first next time, so that we can work on things together. It's hard for me to keep track of 8000 cards when tons of people decide to do their own thing without talking to me at all. I apologize if I sound a bit harsh: I'm just highly disappointed, and want everything to be as great as possible, which I just don't think is possible with this page at this moment based on the state in which the rest of our TCG database is.

Did not realize it was that big of an error on my part creating the page.
First, the only reason I had |- in between card entries was to make it easier to see where one card began and ended at. Aside from that, they served no other purpose.
As for the TCG Error page being created. I started that one upon noticing that the Error moves template {{Move errors}} had a red link for the TCG link. I didn't think there was any harm in adding the page at the time. As for fixing up the template being used on that page as a whole, I would be more than happy to wait on that to happen before working on the page again. Also if it is only meant to be a sub section of the error cards page then I have no problem with going through and removing the images themselves so they consume less space on the page. As for taking it up with you (Head of TCG) next time, I will be more than happy to do so.
Lastly,
1. What kind of table would be appropriate in this case?
2. Removing false information and speculation, I will do my best in regards to both of those.
3. I can understand the first part. My question, how is the search broken at the moment? Not doubting you, just curious as to how it's broken.
4. Understood.
I don't mind it sounding harsh, I'd rather be alerted I am doing something wrong than not being told at you. Thanks for letting me know about this. Will take it up with you first next time I work on something large in the TCG area. Frozen Fennec 18:21, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Redlinks

Do NOT. I repeat, do NOT remove redlinks to pages that should actually exist, no matter what space they are linked from. Just because a page is linked to from a talk page does not mean it is suddenly not notable enough to be put on the wanted pages. There are multiple times that users are discussing pages that should be created and link to them appropriately. Assess what the subject actually is before blindly removing links based on where they are coming from. Redlinks should exist due to content, not location. MaverickNate 19:10, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

What

How is that against the rules. How is it hurting the site??? Its not. I am the only one who needs to read them. Its not against the rules on other wikis. Its not against my rules and its my page. If I want to read and erase, then I can. BlackDragon 03:20, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

From the page of Bulbapedia: Talk page policy
"Removing comments is also prohibited, unless it is spam, content that would be better suited to the Bulbagarden forums, or a reply to a finished conversation older than six months. "
Frozen Fennec 03:29, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


WHY??? Does it bother people. If they neededit , like for proof that someone said something then they could just look through the history. Besides that is a stupid rule. BlackDragon 03:38, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

No wait, That is for article talk pages. Like removing those would be wrong, not my talk page. I "can" remove them, its just not recommended. thats all. BlackDragon 03:40, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

That is for ALL talk pages, not just article pages themselves. I will not continue to argue with you past here, I see no point in it. Frozen Fennec 03:43, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Im not arguing. You seem to be. I just think its stupid. Its not hurting anything. Thats not how I read it and ya know people see things in different ways. After all beauty if in the eye of the beholder. BlackDragon 03:50, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
