Hey there, yea I got the message. Seems interesting, I'll try to spice up my page as well. - unsigned comment from Cipherpol0 (talkcontribs)

Cool, just use tildes (~~~~). K. ht14 23:48, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


Don't add anything Gen III-related to Joey's article. Generation III's Joey is a DIFFERENT TRAINER WITH DIFFERENT JAPANESE NAME AND DIFFERENT POKEMON! He's completely unrelated. It may be added to trivia that such trainer exists, but NOTHING MORE! --Maxim 15:09, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Ok, but he has a Rattata... ht14 14:07, 31 December 2008 (UTC)


Um, you do know that he's not actually leaving, right?--KK Happy new year! 22:01, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

I know... ht14 22:02, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
I told people not to post on that.....DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 23:01, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Sorry... ht14 23:03, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Just so you know

TCG ID please. Also, Template:GB where ever possible instead of OBP. Thanks MaverickNate 19:47, 1 January 2009 (UTC)


My bad. Thanks for keeping me honest. evkl 04:36, 2 January 2009 (UTC) problem... ht14 04:37, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Er, doesn't stuff with a stub template automatically get categorized? -- evkl (need to talk?) 22:05, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but what happens if that's removed? Eventually, it won't BE a stub anymore, and no category... ht14 22:06, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
No one would be able to remover the stub without categorizing it. It is eityher one or the other, so, in order to get rid of the stub, someone must categorize it. MaverickNate 22:08, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I didn't know that...I'll take note of that... ht14 22:09, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I had a bulbpapedia account but I didn't start updating it until now,thanks anyways. Victorysaber 21:39, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

It's fine. Good catch there. ht14 21:39, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

LOL. I Had no idea. Thank you so much. ♥Lapras 19:34, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Uhh... sure... ht14 19:44, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

TCG origins

Please follow the style when writing origins. Thank you. MaverickNate 19:29, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok... ht14 19:30, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Style is somewhat explained here. Read that because I don't have time to explain it to you, maybe later...but not now. MaverickNate 19:32, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
"in the Pokémon games" comes before "that (Pokémon name) can learn." MaverickNate 21:02, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
can we use {{g| instead of [[Pokémon ? ht14 03:05, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
No, that is not allowed. MaverickNate 03:19, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Why not? ht14 03:19, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
One, that's not it's intended purpose, and two: even evkl has stated that using that template is incorrect wikicode. Plus, I don't like it, and neither does Cipher, and we are the co-leaders for tcgdex, so we say no. Okay? MaverickNate 03:25, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Just wondering...good to know. ht14 03:27, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
[[move]]s... and also, it should be level and not suffix. having level takes away the need of Lv. so only put the number. MaverickNate 04:03, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Sorry...just getting used to this... ht14 04:04, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Don't know if you are still doing this, but [[Pokémon games]]. And don't worry about it, you are doing a good job. And we like it when everything is consistant. MaverickNate 04:13, 12 January 2009 (UTC) confused, that's all... ht14 04:14, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Pokédex gets linked. And flavor text is what it was officially called back then. I'd rather those ones stayed. MaverickNate 04:20, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
K. ht14 04:20, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Make sure to use {{game}}. MaverickNate 19:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
...sigh... ht14 19:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
"though slightly reworded" id a sentence fragment. Make sure it is "though it is slightly reworded." Thanks MaverickNate 19:27, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Noted. Note to self: take your time... ht14 19:28, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Userspace warnings

Just a heads up, the userspace policy no longer has the four edit limit. So, please do not warn users saying the limit is four, as that is not true. Thanks, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 16:54, 30 January 2009 (UTC)


Not all text in parenthesis is italic. So, make sure you look at the image to wee what is correct and not, but all pages already have everything apprpriate italicized. Your edit here was incorrect. MaverickNate 03:14, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry...that was the only one I didn't bother to check...sigh... ht14 03:15, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

tidbits of info

Poké-powers and bodies are most likely to be based off of abilities. So, that Sand Damage body did not have the same Japanese name as Sand Tomb, but it did have the same as Sand Stream. MaverickNate 04:19, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh. The effect seemed the same though... ht14 04:23, 4 February 2009 (UTC)


Why are you changing the {Spe|Character} tags to {Special|Character}? They do the same thing. Spe redirects to Special. Its much easier to write. --Blake 22:58, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

The other one's a redirect. ht14 22:59, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Thats what I just said. {Spe|Gold} does the same thing as {Special|Gold} because Template:Spe redirects to Template:Special. So why not use {Spe|Gold} since its shorter and faster?--Blake 23:31, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
I think it's better to use {{Special}} because it's the actual template. But really, all it is is personal preference. ~ overgrownsol 23:33, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Nope. Here: User talk:ht14/Archive 1#Templates ht14 23:34, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
I think Template:Spe should be removed to prevent future confusion then.--Blake 00:43, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
You're telling me... ht14 02:59, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

no variants?

Oh boy...If that's true, then I'm royally screwed. Anyways, can you tell me where it says no variants?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:55, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

The thing is that Japanese translation is more accurate now. The actual name is what it means. Flame Kick is different from Blaze Kick. See above. ht14 21:47, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Hmm? When did I approve this. I like the variants. Also, don't remove the shiny origin from Pokémon Star pages please. MaverickNate 04:59, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
But you said...never mind...isn't it implied though for Star that they're shiny? ht14 05:00, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I tend to change things all the time. Just go with what I most recently said. And not always. Take a look at Mudkip Star. MaverickNate 05:03, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Then can't we just state those that aren't? ht14 05:03, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
They should all already be on the pages. It isn't like Pokémon Star are getting created anymore. They can just be left on the pages. Also, it is sometimes hard to tell. When you have many people illustrating, they sometimes get off a little.Its easier just to say it on all. MaverickNate 05:07, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Don't do that

We are going to be updating the card pages very soon, and I would appreciate not having everyone edit each page a ton of times. I was leniant on the levels, but not on this. It will be done when we update the cards soon. Understand? MaverickNate 02:56, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Got it.... ht14 02:59, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

DO NOT remove the Piplup trivia! We do the same thing for Jessie's Wobbuffet. Why should that be different. It's an important character of the Diamond & Pearl series. --ケンジガール 02:14, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Must you put it on my talk page if I JUST put something on YOUR talk page? ht14 02:15, 7 March 2009 (UTC)


ok just put it on my talk page or i won't see it.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 03:18, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

...Can't you just put it on Watch, and then check it out like that? ht14 03:19, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
My watchlist is the recent changes.... — THE TROM — 03:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Care to explain? ht14 03:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Wait, scratch that...that's pretty annoying then... ht14 03:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok I need a Pokémmon and a moveset about you...--☆Coolピカチュウ! 03:22, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
You can be creative...surprise me. You should know me well enough by now. If not, see my userpage, under fav subsection. ht14 03:22, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
CP says server's down, can't edit. Give him time, k? — THE TROM — 03:32, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
That's fine. I'm patient. You don't have to tell me, but thanks anyway. ht14 03:33, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay. My server is alive but it's already 9pm so I have to do my HW so I'll do it in an hour (I sleep late)--☆Coolピカチュウ! 03:52, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
That's not late though...and yeah, same here... ht14 03:53, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay. I need some moves and a 'title' :D I'm not that creative D:.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:20, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
What Pokémon do you want me to have? If you REALLY want me to decide, then Octillery will do. Surf, Flamethrower, Energy Ball/Charge Beam, Ice Beam. ht14 05:22, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok lol done.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:35, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Interesting...hmm...seeing as the moves don't match...I'll have to start getting creative...I'll get back to for Pokédex entries, go for it...let's see what you're made of. ht14 05:37, 9 March 2009 (UTC)


Thank you, HT, for giving me this information. But could you please go into a little more detail about archiving, such as where I put the user’s comments. Thanks!

Lapras 22:30, 18 March 2009 (UTC) - ♥ -

You see move? Go to your talk page. Click move. Add /Archive 1. Click ok to confirm, and voila...or...I'll do it... ht14 22:31, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Lapras 22:43, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Colons... ht14 22:44, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for solving the problem. Lapras 22:42, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
...just read...not to be mean...but all of the users were telling you that... ht14 22:46, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Are you allowed to delete welcomes from your talk page?--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu! 21:10, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

See your talk page. ht14 21:12, 24 April 2009 (UTC)


Don't jump around, do an entire set at a time. MaverickNate 23:19, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Ok. I guess I'll do the Neo Destiny... ht14 03:04, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Nothing major, just make sure to change all instances of [[Image:Rarity Rare.png|Rare Holographic]]H to {{rar|Rare Holo}}, please MaverickNate 03:22, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Images are different though, aren't they? Slightly... ht14 03:22, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
The only difference is the H, ok then. ht14 03:23, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
the resistance modifier is automatically set as -30. No need to put it in. MaverickNate 03:32, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Interesting. Saw the x2 for default for weakness... ht14 03:32, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
It was always that before DP. MaverickNate 03:33, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, if there isn't a resistance or Weakness, don't put it in as "none" leave the option field out completely. MaverickNate 03:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
JUST about to see if you guys would allow it... ht14 03:35, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
If you put it in manually, it doesn't show up. If you let the template do it, it will. MaverickNate 03:37, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
It is very important that you only leave one space in between the infobox expansion footer, and the beginning of the text, or else the main article will be misaligned. MaverickNate 03:46, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
What do you mean? ht14 03:48, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Nvm, you got it. But leave the categories to me. those are how I know whether I checked it or not. MaverickNate 03:57, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok then. I'll do the expansion thing though... ht14 03:58, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
But in between templates, no spaces. MaverickNate 04:07, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I get it now... ht14 04:09, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
{{PokémoncardInfobox/Expansion... right next to each other.
{{Cardattack |... also right next to each other. You keep putting spaces in between there. Those things should be left alone. MaverickNate 04:18, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Found the keyword...what do you mean by misalignment though? ht14 04:19, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Here is where you did it. The start of the article is lower than the infobox because you had two line breaks after the expansion footer. MaverickNate 04:24, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Problem fixed. I know now. Thanks. ht14 04:26, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Just leave it in there. Everycard will have it, and I would rather it be there. It isn't causing problems like the other ones were, and it makes it easier when making new articles... MaverickNate 04:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Random inconsistency... ht14 04:35, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I know it is, but the Echidna is leaving everything in for some reason... MaverickNate 04:37, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Which includes the weakness and resistance factors...He still wrote none... ht14 04:38, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I really don't know what to do at this moment, I'm waiting for an answer, but not getting one... MaverickNate 04:40, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Nevermind, I'm the leader, I make the decisions. Leave out whatever you can. MaverickNate 04:45, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Got it. ht14 04:47, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Dual types already taken care of, while we need to deal with the fossil problem. There should be a type2 option field somewhere, check around TTE's userspace for the actual name. Wait off on all thinsg that evolve from fossils now., okay. I'll get it worked out. MaverickNate 04:49, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I mean the actual picture as shown on the card for the type. What we used to do is make it two pics, but I mean combined. ht14 04:51, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Never touch the categories, especially not Category:Pokémon cards. MaverickNate 02:18, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok...still add basic for the field, right? As stated before, random just said yes, now no...sigh... ht14 02:19, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
As stated before, no spaces between the templates. On Shedinja, the info is lower than the box because you added a space. And I decided that it isn't an inconsistancy. I have the wekness and resistance remoived when there isn't one because on the real cards, they leave it out completely when it doesn't exist. But, when the card is basic, it will still say basic on the card, so it still needs to be put in. MaverickNate 02:26, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Carelessness, that's all... ht14 02:29, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
I wanted to do it all myself, please. MaverickNate 03:34, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
K. What about set to expansion? You'll handle that too? ht14 03:35, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I decided they were both interchangable, and it doesn't matter which one is used. MaverickNate 03:37, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Sigh... ht14 03:38, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
The reason i said don't edit it, was because I didn't want thousands of edits to the TCG again, because I'm still going to have to go through the cards you do and check them and edit them again. I don't like when people edit the cards. MaverickNate 02:20, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
So you're saying that nobody should touch the TCG cards. Period. ht14 02:23, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
Not when I say not to. If there was a good reason, then yes, they can, but after this, no one should have to edit any of the old cards unless adding needed information or switching images. MaverickNate 02:38, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
That's mostly the reason, I wanted to minimize the amount of edits we did to the TCG, not have people editing the same page a hundred times to all the pages. That's why I'm saying no one is allowed to edit the cards. MaverickNate 03:00, 23 April 2009 (UTC)


Did you have permission from 0 Degrees to do what you just did? He's made it pretty clear that he doesn't want to be associated with the Chocolate account. That's why he started a new one instead of asking for a name change. --ケンジガール 05:32, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh...whoops...heh...then should we just delete those pages then? ht14 05:33, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't know if they are to be deleted or not. I'll just move them back. --ケンジガール 05:33, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Maybe... ht14 05:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Rising Rivals

We plan on changing all the links on the "Name (TCG)" pages whenever the card is released. This minimizes the amount of edits and work we have to do. MaverickNate 21:08, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Got it. ht14 02:10, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Was it you?

I'm not spamming, I'm defending my page. So, HT14, if it is you who keeps messing with my page, seriously, STOP. I'm going to do an FAQ, deal with it! - unsigned comment from Lapras (talkcontribs)

Huh. You amuse me. Au contraire. Nobody's messing your page, unless you're talking about the talk page. Read. ht14 22:12, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Don't touch those

You already caused me multiple edit conflicts, I don't want you helping. MaverickNate 03:00, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

All right... ht14 03:01, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
You are really wanting blocked, aren't you? MaverickNate 03:18, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm done...I'll work on something non-TCG-related... ht14 03:19, 27 April 2009 (UTC)


A bit late, I know, but thanks for that... :) --electAbuzzzz 13:08, 7 May 2009 (UTC) problem... ht14 22:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Your Name In Silver

While recording Pokémon Silver, I've captured HtFOURTEEN the Zubat. Check out my channel on Saturday. SharKing Productions 13:36, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

P.S.: I spelled "14" in "word form" because I couldn't use numbers. Stupid limitations!
Umm...are you sure about the number thing? ht14 20:54, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, I was behind a camera, but I looked around, and couldn't find numbers anywhere in the nickname function. I searched uppercase and lowercase, and there's no "Other" like in future games... SharKing Productions 00:46, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
It's all good. ht14 03:17, 15 May 2009 (UTC)


Thanks--Tavisource 21:45, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

take a look

at this. MaverickNate 14:04, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, that's just crazy...thanks. Are there any that are just 2 types though? ht14 14:07, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
IDK, I'll have to look it up. This was just the only card I could remeber off the top of my mind. MaverickNate 14:11, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
A quick search of the Poké-Body's name gives me six others: Medicham (EX Crystal Guardians 25), Magcargo (EX Unseen Forces 41), Slowbro (EX Unseen Forces 13), Armaldo ex (EX Legend Maker 84), Rocket's Scizor ex (EX Team Rocket Returns 101), Rocket's Scyther ex (EX Team Rocket Returns 102). MaverickNate 14:13, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. ht14 14:18, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
