Scizor and Scissor

I don't think that would be notable considering the similar pronunciation between the two.--ForceFire 12:08, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Multi-strike moves

Can you do the categories too please? Thanks for your help in getting the correct terminology in use. --SnorlaxMonster 07:49, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Independent events

Each hit of a multi-strike move is independently affected by the King's Rock/Razor Fang. Using your logic of (number of trials)*(probability of a single event)=(combined probability), if I were to flip two coins, there would be a 100% chance of flipping a heads, as there are 2 events and a 50% chance of heads in each trial. This is explained in further detail on Wikipedia: Independence (probability theory). The actual probability is 75% chance of heads:

Pr(H1∩H2)=Pr(H1)+Pr(H2)-Pr(H1∪H2)
Pr(H1∩H2)=Pr(H1)+Pr(H2)-(Pr(H1)×Pr(H2))
Pr(H1∩H2)=0.5+0.5-(0.5×0.5)
Pr(H1∩H2)=0.75 --SnorlaxMonster 06:48, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Hello, I wanted to talk to you about your recent edit summaries. A summary like this is acceptable, but this one is a bit over the line. No user has been targeted directly, yes, but it is still offensive for the user who originally wrote it. I appreciate your help and effort in improving Bulbapedia's articles, but please try to be a bit more polite with the users. It is not a warning, but a kind request to you. It will leave a good impression on our users and it'll encourage them to contribute even more efficiently. I hope you can understand, have a nice day ahead. AdynizWanna talk? 04:28, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

I understand, it just bothers me so much that we have to resort to such writing because no one else bothers to do it. I know that these summaries are basically mini-rants of mine and provide no real explanation for the edit itself (other than the obvious correction of aforementioned atrocious writing). I wasn't planning on doing any more rant summaries, but I'll make sure it never happens again. Sorry, and thanks for doing the right thing the right way. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 05:55, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Code of conduct

Please do not assume bad faith and attack people. Pumpkinking's edit summary was in no way condescending, nor was it criticism. It was simply his reasoning for the edit that he had made. There was also no reason for you to bring up that months old incident. People can change, and this person does seem to have learned their lesson. Don't assume that every comment they ever post is with the same attitude. Every single comment you left on their talk page is essentially an attack. Take a day off to think about your attitude, it needs a serious improvement. You should assume that every comment is well meaning and in good faith. Note that this is not in response solely to those comments but your general attitude, which has become a clear problem. Werdnae (talk) 07:46, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 21:27, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

I can tell that is a standard message because 4 edits rather than 3 is by no means "a lot." I specifically noted in the summary that the fourth edit was the last one, and it's not like I edit my page regularly. That being said, I know I broke the rule (though they were done across two days in my timezone). Sorry. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 23:42, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Re: The Birth of Mewtwo

No, I don't have a Bulbagarden account. Now, if you wanted to ask me where you can find the radio drama, its text translated in Engish, and its anime adaptation in Japanese with English subtitles, I would gladly answer here and now, but first I want to verify that my answer wouldn't go against the rules of Bulbapedia. I am saying this because part of my message in Talk:Mewtwo (original series)#Mewtwo origin was edited and removed from the chronology by the user ArcToraphim, who then added "Please don't link to, or ask for, these things. It's not allowed". Now I don't want this kind of problem anymore, so I am asking if I can post the link; if I can, I will do it here, if I cannot, we must find another way to contact each other. Bye --Abcd (talk) 16:07, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Hm... This is problematic. I certainly don't want to get either of us in trouble. I'll just find it on my own someday. Thanks for your time. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 06:51, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for not noticing your answer until now, I didn't realize that you would answer here instead of my talk page. Anyway, as I don't know if I can post links or not I won't do it, but I'll tell you that I find the radio drama googling its title (Myuutsu no Tanjou) and I found the Japanese movie subbed in English (with the extra scenes added at the beginning) googling Mewtwo's Counterattack uncut. As for the translation of the drama, it's very easy to find. Please tell me if you found them. --Abcd (talk) 20:32, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, did you find them? --Abcd (talk) 21:43, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Giovanni's Theme

The trivia should be removed because that track is somewhat common in the 4Kids dub and it was created first for the dub and not for the game. I don't remember specifically how many times it was used, but when I listened the Puzzle League version for the first time yesterday, I already knew it by memory. I'm not sure if any Puzzle League song was arranged for the anime, but I know that some anime dub-only music is arranged for the game, like Double Trouble as Team Rocket's Theme, Together Forever as Ritchie's Theme or Manny Corallo's Under Water BGM as Bruno's Theme.

I know this track existed before since one of the first times it was used in the dub (not sure if it was the first time ever, though) was in The Tower of Terror, when Jessie's hair starts to burn and she is seen running around the basement floor. That episode was released in 1998, while the Puzzle League game was released in 2000. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 16:21, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Collapsible usertags

You can use some of the code from my page, which has collapsing user tags, if you wish for next time you update your userpage. ^o^ --ZestyCactus 17:24, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll probably never have a neat page like you or a super-elaborate, template-gasm page like some other folks, but I'll look into it. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 17:31, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Here's the prove, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x14nru9_ita-pokemon-bianco-e-nero-avventure-a-unima-episodio-19-un-ritorno-fuoco-e-fiamme_shortfilms. As you can see, the coloration of Pidgeotto's feathers are the same as for Japanese version, while Aerodactyl's leg is corrected. Only Eng dub correct Pidgeotto's feathers error, while the other regions uses the same version as the Japanese version does. But these errors were fixed even on Japanese DVD version.

Day of the Week superscript

Try {{dotw}}, so for Thursday, you would write {{dotw|Th}}, which would give Th. たかはりいtalk 21:08, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I tried to cancel my next edit (Dustox), but it went through anyway. I fixed it with another edit. Wiki is hard. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 21:10, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Re: Multi-strike Moves in Gen III

I tried battling between Emerald and FireRed, so, at least in FR/LG/E, they work that way. I don't own a copy of Ruby or Sapphire to test the rest of the games, though. And as for in-game mechanics changing, well, lots of things changed between the games of Gen IV, like Hypnosis and Blizzard. hfc2X 06:43, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Red links in your teams

The two fakemon on your user page are making red links on the Wanted pages. If you leave |pokemon= blank and put |nickname= right beneath it, the box will look the same but not make any red links. Glik (talk) 22:56, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Wasn't aware, sorry! Fixed it. --TheVeryBest 02:28, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Talk page policy

Please note that the talk page policy forbids you from editing someone else's talk page comments as you did by removing the parenthetical part of my comment on Talk:Inkay (Pokémon). Also according to the talk page policy, comments should be in chronological order, which you defied by moving my comment out of order to be adjacent to the comment to which I was responding. Please be more careful with talk pages in the future. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:20, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

K. I was being pretty careless and just did what looked best. I haven't been myself lately, sorry. Now I'm reconsidering my place here… Editing a wiki is a thankless chore and has been distracting me from more important matters for several years now. Hm. --TheVeryBest 08:33, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
