Template Adds

Noticed you created a few, so I added this one which didn't exist yet. Feel free to tinker with it. CycloneGU (talk) 22:55, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Don't make templates in the mainspace. glikglak 23:01, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I thought that one would be fine because it was based on the others. Normally I wouldn't. CycloneGU (talk) 23:03, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Always ask permission beforehand. I was going to get someone who could delete pages mainspace the one I had in my userspace. glikglak 23:12, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah, that I didn't know you had. I figured that one was next, so wanted to save time by creating the bare bones of it so the image and its background could just be updated from there. I notified you here to make you aware in case you weren't on Recent Changes at the time. I figured it's quicker that way, hence why I did that. No harm was intended, and I do work in userspace; heck, I've been helping Abcboy with all the pages for the potential page split of the Shuffle stage data, which is progressing very well with the page structure generally complete.

Are you permitted to edit protected templates? I'm currently assisting Adamws at Archives to tag some images being replaced as the new ones are uploaded; that template will need a change to have the both Shiny and non-Shiny Emerald sprites (left column) labeled as PNG instead of GIF (Shiny are already PNG, but the wrong size, so that may need changing to another file naming structure as well). Adamws is still uploading, so this is for when he gets them done through Deoxys (386). He's at 275 as I type. Obviously, the GIFs will not be deleted until that change is made, after which other templates using them on various pages can be investigated prior to deletion. CycloneGU (talk) 02:01, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

I can, but so can most Archives staff. I'd rather leave file-related things to them. glikglak 02:37, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough. If you are OK updating that one template (since it's on all of the first 386 Pokémon pages), Adam's up to 357 now, so 30 more Pokémon after this. Anything left over afterwards can be picked up by Archives staff. Some have a lot of entries, so I suspect some of the sprites being changed out are being used on user pages. If you want to leave that change to Archives staff, that's fine as well; I'll poke one of them. =) CycloneGU (talk) 03:30, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the wait - I had three that needed last minute fixing. Ok, the Emerald sprites are ready to be switched. Also, I know that Kogoro is working on a replacement/upgrade for the Template:Sidegame, but can the .gifs for Pinball, Pinball RS, and Trozei! be switched as well? Note that the animated .pngs have a different naming structure for Pinball and Pinball RS. Thanks. Adamws (talk) 04:35, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Eevee Origin

When you say Eevee's ears are clearly not based on rabbits, I searched rabbits up and I noticed a certain resemblance between the two. If you even bothered to search rabbit up, you'd see it too. I also searched up fennec fox and the ears are not quite the same. For instance, the ears are much wider and a sandier color while a brown rabbit's ears look the exact same to Eevee's. I know Eevee's a mix of creatures, so everybody's opinion will be different on its origin But when you said " Eevee's ears are CLEARLY NOT based on rabbits.", that is simply not true because like I said, everybody's opinion is different and not everybody will agree with yours.Leafeon6954 (talk) 20:33, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Eevee's ears aren't exactly analogous to anything. I find they have more commonalities with equine ears: the shape, positioning nearer the side of the head than the top, and exaggerated pointedness look like various equine. Several mammals with upright ears can look "exactly" like Eevee's, so you need to go off something a bit more objective than "looks like". Rabbit ears are situated at the top back of the skull and naturally face outwards as opposed to forwards. glikglak 23:10, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
I never said Eevee's ears looked exactly like. I said they had a certain resemblance. Also, just because you don't think Eevee's ears aren't like a rabbits doesn't mean you can delete my edit. I know quite a few people who think Eevee has rabbit ears and merely added that info to expand upon Eevee's origin.Leafeon6954 (talk) 15:41, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
Anyone can undo any edit of yours if they believe them to be incorrect. You have to come to an accord or, barring that, have staff weigh in on it. And the number of people who think Eevee's ears are rabbit-like obviously isn't that large, or something would have been brought up about them on its talk page already. glikglak 16:15, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
I have no opinion on this discussion, but wanted to bring in a possible example that Leafeon might be basing his opinion on. While many rabbits do have ears facing outward as you stated, the Eastern Cottontail has shorter ears that point the same way as Eevee's ears (though Eevee's are larger). Based on that specimen, it could be assumed the ears are like a rabbit's, though not exactly alike.
Unfortunately, the only solution to this is to find the person who created Eevee and interview him. CycloneGU (talk) 17:28, 18 July 2015 (UTC)


Can we at least get a basic page for Hoopa up so it's no longer a redlink? We can fill in the details later. I changed it so we didn't have a redlink on the page and saw another anime article reference later, so I'm fine with it going back; let's just get the basic page in, even if not complete yet. CycloneGU (talk) 23:11, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Ask someone who watches the anime. glikglak 23:25, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Not sure who to go for here. Regardless, just getting a basic page approved noting the page is for the movie Hoopa shouldn't be too difficult; it clears the redlink that would otherwise be dotted about. CycloneGU (talk) 23:31, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Having redlinks about isn't a bad thing. It's how people know a page needs to be made. When someone can make a proper page, they will. glikglak 23:48, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Chosen has a page about Hoopa which can be found here. I wrote on the talk page regarding it being moved. PattyMan 23:50, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
I'll propose the same. Thanks! CycloneGU (talk) 23:58, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Serena's Pancham's gender

If Serena's Pancham's gender is unknown, then how come his page refers to him as male? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 02:56, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Berry reverts?

Why did you revert the extra information on the berries? The berry descriptions are not very clear as to what they do, so this extra information would be useful to players so they can understand what exactly is being lowered. --Kitsuneae (talk) 00:21, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

There's an Effect section in the infobox that's specifically for properly explaining what the Berry does when used on Pokémon. glikglak 00:26, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
And if a Berry has no use as a held item, it doesn't need mentioning. If it does have a use, it goes under Uses. glikglak 00:37, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Sawyer voice actor

It's Robby, not Robbie. And it can be unprotected now, since the VA debate is settled. Technickal (talk) 22:12, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Rock Path split

We discussed the possibility to split Rock Path into Rock Path (Red and Blue Rescue Team) and Rock Path (Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky) and I think that we all came to agree that it was a good idea since no one disagreed. However no one has splited the page (I thought someone from the staff would) so I'm asking you if you could tell me how to split the page or do it yourself if that is a staff thing that I can't do. --Raltseye (talk) 11:26, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
