how can I upload images?
How can I upload images? Velvetstar 19:06 17, January 2014 (UTC)
- You can upload images here, but make sure you read the rules before you upload anything. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 02:35, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Here, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Velvetstar 22:24 17 January 2014 (UTC)
For this Learnset table, I changed the footer to be the same color as the header, but on this other Learnset table, both are two different colors. Should the Learnset table's header and footer be the same color? — Reshi643 03:50, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
- If it's always been the same type. Gust and Sand Attack used to be Normal type moves, so the learnset tables use both Ground and Normal-type colors. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 21:44, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
- Ok, thanks. — Reshi643 21:46, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Noting Clemont's eye color
On Iris, there's no note for anime!Iris's eyes; same between Misty's articles, despite having four different colors on her main page. Since his anime page notes his eyes in that incarnation are blue, I don't feel it's necessary to note it on his main page. For that same reason, I also didn't add Limone in his relatives' list, like is done on Brock and Misty. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 22:30, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
- Fair enough. i was going off Lt. Surge's page, but I guess I shoulda been using companion characters instead. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:26, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
...Do you have any idea why (some, if not most of) Bulbapedia's images are going wonky? Or is it just me? Seeing floating black error messages all over is weirding me out, lol. --FireGambit (talk) 06:52, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Cause of this. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 06:53, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- I realized reading that that it didn't answer your question. The Archives just need a hardware upgrade. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 06:58, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Haha, alright thanks. I shall wait patiently for a fix. --FireGambit (talk) 07:00, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Bonus Question! If you're auto-confirmed here, will your account also be auto-confirmed on the Archives? I ask because earlier today, I attempted to upload a better Shauntal sprite, but apparently I can't unless I'm not auto-confirmed. --FireGambit (talk) 07:23, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Nope. The only thing that carries over to the other Bulbawiki sites would be your account. Not your user rights. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:31, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- So then what else would one do on the Archives, other than upload images? Forgive me if this is a stupid question; I'm prone to asking them. :) --FireGambit (talk) 07:40, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Hmmmm, I'd say fixing templates, image summaries, and categories would be a good place to start. To a lesser degree, welcoming new users. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 08:19, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Alright then, thanks for the help. Speaking of welcoming users, when I see a new account is created, can I drop that generic Bulbapedia welcome template, or is that something only administrators can do? I promise it's the final question for tonight, hehe. --FireGambit (talk) 08:22, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Anyone can welcome new users. But while it's not a requirement, we do have a preference that experienced users welcome new ones, because chances are that new users will go to whoever welcomed them for guidance and advice, and if the person that welcomed them literally does nothing but welcome users they won't really know how to answer their questions. See what I mean? So we'd like it if people knew their way around the site first. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 08:38, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
- Alright, thanks for all the answers. I think I'll hit the sack now, lol. --FireGambit (talk) 08:42, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello! As I was perusing Bulbapedia articles the other day, I noticed that several anime characters (such as Foster or Georgio) did not have a character box. Is this because they are minor characters? Or, if they do need boxes, could I add some? Thanks in advance. --FireGambit (talk) 00:51, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
- Characters of the day, aka one-time characters don't get infoboxes usually. Typically there's no info that could be added to them. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 02:02, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
- Cool beans. --FireGambit (talk) 05:23, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Bonus question, 'cause I have far too many of them: after reading plenty of articles here, I've noticed that they seem to follow a protocol of not repeat-linking a page? I'm not sure about this, but I was wondering if this is so. I've found plenty of inconsistencies, if my hypothesis is correct, and therefore was excited at the prospect of finding an editing niche. --FireGambit (talk) 05:42, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello Jo! How goes it? Greetings aside, I was wondering if I could borrow your egg-archive-template-thing-a-ma-bob (sorry, I had to do it). I'll credit you as its creator, if you'd like. Thanks in advance. --FireGambit (talk) 22:47, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
- Sure, just make sure to change it up so it's unique to you. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 05:00, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you again. :) --FireGambit (talk) 05:20, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Suggested change to our type pages
I made a suggestion on Talk:Fairy (type) that I think would be a better course of action for handling our type pages than what we do now. I brought it up with Maverick Nate, since he normally runs the administrative discussion on the forums, and he directed me here. Do you mind giving your thoughts on the matter, please? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:40, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
- I'll bring it up in a chat discussion cause even though I'm Head of Games I feel like all I'd do is delete all trances of competitive battling from the site. (hahaha...) But while I do agree that it's a bit too close to "strategies", it's also based on solid fact based on their stats. So if anything, it could probably just be dumbed down a bit at the very least. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 18:00, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
- Awesome. Thanks! I'll keep an eye here and on the type pages to see when things are eventually decided for sure. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:11, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Does somebody have a page for the new Trozei game started up on their userpage? Glik (talk) 18:49, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Emulator ROM Mods
So I used to be a huge Pokemon fan, got every game from Red and Blue through to Platinum, but faded out of it through middle school. Now with i devises having emulators, my whole grade is on a huge Pokemon hit and I began playing ROM's and found out about mods. I was looking for some info on the Zhery league, but found out through extensive searching that bulbapedia doesn't have anything on Pokemon ROM mods. Would pages on modified games ever develop?- unsigned comment from Modmasterfitzy (talk • contribs)
- I doubt it because we don't usually publish information regarding ROMs or emulators. We stick to official information. We only acknowledge ROMs in special cases. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 03:13, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
- There is a page specifically for all ROM hacks, and as far as I know there's no real restriction on adding a hack to the page so long as it's notable enough. Hell, there are even some reputable ones still missing. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 17:09, 3/4/2014 (UTC)
Philosophical-Psychological Informist Togekiss
Jo, I report you that Philosophical-Psychological Informist Togekiss is editing the same page and I shouldn't give out warnings to other users, I just report you. --Cinday123 (Talk) 07:09, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- I don't really see the issue. They seem to clearly have an interest in Twitch Plays Pokémon, I can't fault them on that. They choose what they want to edit. Then, because a lot happens in a short time span, I personally feel like frequent editing is to be expected. They haven't caused any fuss, or created any vandalism. I don't see them as a problematic user. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:25, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- Yes Jo, that's fine with this user, I don't see the issue about editing the same page, editing Twitch Plays Pokémon is fine, so there's no vandalism, and also, this user is not a problematic user at all. --Cinday123 (Talk) 07:27, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Roaming Pokémon page, Generation VI section
Thanks for stating the reason for the edit in the summary, I appreciate that. Although I wanted to ask, would it be OK if we change the 10 to an 11? Because technically it's 11 times.
Also speaking of not being a strategy wiki, I seem to remember you guys having an awesome walkthrough for FireRed/LeafGreen (or was it Diamond/Pearl?). Is there plans to do that for X/Y? Karasuhebi (talk) 08:23, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- Clarification is always welcome. Also, no. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 08:27, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks for the quick reply. Also 'No, don't change from 10 to 11' or 'No, no planned walkthrough for X/Y'? Karasuhebi (talk) 08:31, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- We're not making a walkthrough for X/Y. You're welcome to make the information on the roaming Pokémon page more specific.★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 08:35, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
- So since you said 'more specific' as opposed to 'accurate'can I assume you approve of me re-adding that specific part of my earlier edit? Karasuhebi (talk) 08:42, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Hey, since you're online, would you mind dealing with this Ninjashazi user who is spamming links to some Pokémon game site on Mystery Dungeon pages? Thanks, ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 08:45, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Friend Safari locations for Pokemon pages
I understand we're "supposed" to be waiting on a new template to add Friend Safari locations to Pokemon pages. But I cannot fathom that it could be so great a change that Friend Safari location is only acceptably notable in that template, and not in the current template. If it is possible to acceptably note Friend Safari location for a Pokemon with the current template, people should be allowed to go around and add FS locations to Pokemon pages. It's been entirely too long, and unless you can tell me the new template will be ready in a day or two, we shouldn't have to keep waiting, keep the wiki out-of-date even longer. I know I'm willing to work on it, and I'm sure there are a few others around who would still be willing. Will you approve people adding Friend Safari locations in some acceptable format? Tiddlywinks (talk) 06:05, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- You've been around. Perhaps you've missed this... Whatever the case, I'd very much like an answer, please. Tiddlywinks (talk) 08:38, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
- Don't add anything yet. The staff haven't forgotten about it. It's still being worked on. It'll be ready soon. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 20:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
- The templates have been updated. Please use Dedenne and Spritzee as examples for the Friend Safari. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:43, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Question about Effort Value Yield
Hello. I couldn't find anything on Bulbapedia along the lines of Wikipedia's Reference Desk, so I figured I might as well ask you (hope I'm not a bother)! So, here goes. I visited Bulba's page on EV Yield, and in the intro, there's a note stating that the numbers there are only valid for gen V and up! So I Googled around, and there's conflicting sources. Psypokes claims that these values only differ from the first 2 gens, and that the only change between gen III and the present is the new Pokemon (by the way, for the purposes of this question, my main focus is gen III) Is this true?.
Bonus Question - What's a good 3 Pokemon core to build around Mudkip, using Pokemon available toward the beginning of Sapphire (even if only temporary)? I plan on EVing Mudkip to be a wall breaker/mixed tank, if that helps...
And one last thing, you might have been able to deduce from my questions that I'm a budding EV trainer. Can you point me in the direction of a good online community? Kay, thanks! --SillyWynaut96 (talk) 17:52, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
- The Staff page is kind of like a reference page. You can contact pretty much any active staff member you want with a question, and if they can't answer, someone who can will show up to help you out.
- I looked through the history, and it seems Jigglypuff, Meowth, and Geodude's base exp yield was changed in Gen V. That's what the disclaimer is referring to, not the EV they yield.
- I'm probably not the person to ask for competitive advice. I'm generally terrible at team building because I prefer using Pokémon I like over Pokémon that would actually be useful. The only thing I can really imagine being good with Mudkip in Sapphire would be Ludicolo since it gets Rain Dance and its ability heals it during a downpour. Then Mudkip-Swampert can also benefit from the attack boost. But I would suggest asking MAGNEDETH cause he's more savvy in that field than I am.
- As for your last question, like I said, I'm not really into competitive play myself. You could always look around the video game board on Bulbagarden's forums. There's even a board dedicated to competitive play. I honestly don't know of any other good communities. I'm not trying to be self-promoting here. I'm just not much of a forum person so I don't really have much experience with which community is the best. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 18:18, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
- Okay, thanks! I sure appreciate the help. By the way, is there a way that I can just link this message directly to the user you mentioned, rather than re-asking the question? - unsigned comment from SillyWynaut96 (talk • contribs)
- I'll send him a message when he comes online later. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 18:52, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
- He said to message him off the site cause this isn't the place for this conversation. You can message him on the forums, Twitter, or via email. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 16:51, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
I understand that the comment is very old. However, isn't the policy that replies should not be added to conversations that have finished/resolved? The policy doesn't actually say that it is, unassailably, okay to respond if no response was ever made, of course... But Bbbbbbbbba did make a useful comment about something that was never answered in any form. I just think that warrants forbearance here and the comment should be kept. Tiddlywinks (talk) 23:55, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
- I doubt Socob has been watching the talk page all these years waiting for a response. The discussion is dead. Rather than trying to revive a dead conversation, it would be a better decision to have added the information to the article. That's where most people look for information anyway. If we can get proof their theory is factual, it can be added to a Notes section. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 00:23, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
- Or...leave it on the talk page until someone can provide proof for it. If that proof never comes, you'd be preventing people from finding the information at all (Socob isn't the only person to consider).
- ...Unless someone just makes a new section on the talk page with that theory. Yeah, I think that'll be what I'll resort to. If it hasn't been put on the article by tomorrow or so, I'll just make a section recounting Bbbbbbbbba's theory and asking if anyone can confirm it and put it in the article. There shouldn't really be any cause for complaint about that.
- (I don't intend to be insubordinate, per se. I just believe that this information shouldn't be consigned to the void and intend to see that it isn't (especially since I can't confirm and add it into the article myself).) Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:45, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Pointless message about the top thing on your talk page
Shouldn't it be "He's a boy" and "She's a girl"? It irks me for some reason. @~@ Pikachu Bros. (talk) 13:28, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Billy Mays SillyWynaut96 here, with another question.
Hope you laughed too! Anyway, I've got another (hopefully simpler) factual question (hate to single you out, but 'Head of Games' seems like the go-to for this). You're aware of the whole, grass beats water, water beats fire, fire beats grass thing. So, just how many of these rock-paper-scissor-style type-effectiveness triangles are there? Can you name them? And besides the obvious difference of the fairy type, would there be any other differences between gen III and gen VI in this respect? Thanks for putting up with me, SillyWynaut96 (talk) 15:48, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
- After googling around, I think I should clarify. For my purposes, a type triangle strictly means that x is super effective to y, is super effective to z, is super effective to x. Also, x is resistant to (NOT immune to) z, is resistant to y, is resistant to x. SillyWynaut96 (talk) 16:33, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
- Sorry to butt in, Jo, but The Cave of Dragonflies has a good type-interaction tool that can tell you this and lots of other things. (The newer version doesn't have type polygons, but it does a lot of other things a lot better than the older one, so take a look at it, too, if you're interested.) As for your question, there are four: Fire/Water/Grass, Fire/Rock/Steel, Grass/Poison/Ground, and Fighting/Flying/Rock. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:00, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
I come to you, Head of Games, wondering about a new template(s) for the Gen VI Berries. I have two issues.
The first, a fairly minor concern: the Gen VI Berries have no numbers, so I'd like to create a new template (Berrylist/6 and Berrylist/h/6, I think) without that column.
Second, the Berry trees now have 7 stages of growth as opposed to 5.
- This is where you planted the [Berry] Berry!
- The [Berry] is sprouting!
- The [Berry]'s seedling is growing well!
- The [Berry]'s trunk is getting bigger!
- The [Berry] tree has buds!
- The [Berry] tree is in bloom!
- (When the Berries have fruited and the tree is harvestable.)
In addition, sprouts may be different now; Rawst and Oran sprouts look different, for example. Right now we don't have sprites for any of these stages, but I think these should get a new template as well, like Tree/6.
Of course, none of the above would be too difficult to do within current templates, I just kind of think it'd be better if they were their own, new templates. What do you think? Tiddlywinks (talk) 16:42, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
- Well, they are sorted by their numbers, AFAIK. You could theoretically collect all the berries and sort them by type to get the numbers. Pikachu Bros. (talk) 16:46, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
- I notice you were on long enough to make a couple of edits since my question above. I don't know if you're busy or discussing it with staff or what, but I'd really appreciate even the briefest acknowledgement when you have a bit of time. If I would do better to take it to other staff, just let me know who. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:17, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't know if this is necessary seeing their repeated history of being told on but a user of Pokémon Wikia named DragonSpore18 has been stealing images from us such as the one of Katsuyuki Konishi and Chespin's Overgrow. PattyMan 02:12, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Since you were the person in contact with the anonymous source who indicated "Unknown" was the best voice actor listing for Bianca (movie), I'm hoping it would be possible for you to have a word with User:Rosebr10 about her hostility on the matter (which, as a side note, is a recurring problem with her, as you can see from warnings on her talk page and the tone of her user page and some of her other contributions). I'd rather not myself given that I don't know the full details that you do. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 05:58, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jo, I just have a few questions, and I figured you'd be the best person to ask them as head of games here. A while back I made a few templates that I would assume are ready to be mainspaced, but I want to run it by you first. The first of these templates is User:Schiffy/Template:Warrior (or User:Schiffy/Template:Warrior/Full), which is intended for this page. I asked Berrenta to look over the first one, and she agreed it looks fine, but that someone higher up should decide (On a side note, in regards to that page, I noticed some Warriors using colors on their tables that don't match their type(s). It's only one or two, but it should probably be fixed). On a separate note, the other templates I set up a while back were User:Schiffy/Barry color and its light and dark equivalents. Just wondering of those could possibly be used. Thanks, Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 02:21, 5/1/2014 (UTC)
- Essentially you're just taking the code already on the page and turning it into a template? Eh, I think Template:Warlord would be better. Then we could get rid of the gallery at the bottom, and fill in some of the information in the bullets. Also, we don't need a template for Barry colors. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:11, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
- Well yes, that's exactly what I did for the template. Essentially, I figured since the same table is being used 163 times on that page, it would make more sense to condense it. I suppose the Warlord template could work as well. The Barry thing just crossed my mind while I was helping with the Party -> Party/Single template switch, and I noticed nearly everything with Barry was using the same three hex color codes. If they're unnecessary, then fine. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 15:07, 5/1/2014 (UTC)
'Google Maps: Pokémon Challenge' article
Hey there! Apologies if you're not in charge of such matters, but I thought you're the most appropriate person to ask, being the Head of Games. I was wondering if an article on the Google Maps: Pokémon Challenge event would be warranted. It was motivated by the April Fools, but it took place for quite a while (in fact, it still does) and was with The Pokémon Company's endorsement. There's quite some content that can be documented, including the Pokémon on the Google Pokédex, with their index numbers and locations. I'd be interested in doing a head start if I can have the okay! :) --Ash Pokemaster (talk) 21:04, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
- One of our staff members, Berrenta, has started an article in her userspace. We'll probably mainspace it soon so people can add to it. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 23:56, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks! I'll be checking with Berrenta. :) --Ash Pokemaster (talk) 09:10, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are full remakes
It is just confirmed that the two new upcoming releases are full remakes of Ruby and Sapphire. <http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/140508/index.html> So shouldn't anything related to Ruby and Sapphire be linked to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire? Agent5514 (talk) 08:29, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm wanting to create a Regional Pokedex walkthrough for Emerald.
I'm pretty new to Bulbapedia, so I'm not sure if you're the right person to ask, but after using some walkthroughs and editing some pages, I'm wanting to create a walkthrough for catching every single Pokemon in the Emerald regional Pokedex. How would I get around to doing that?
Thanks. KodakKid3 (talk) 00:40, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
- We don't create walkthroughs on Bulbapedia. We have in the past, but not anymore. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 02:55, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
G50 said you're the one I should ask about what to do with this (Or at least that's what I read...), considering I didn't start it (but I finished it). And it's related to games. Eridanus (talk) 15:26, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
- I don't like these at all, and while I don't find the information that particularly useful (because the moves are all essentially the last 4 moves it could learn up to its current level), if we really want to have the information on the article(s), we could do a lot better in terms of presentation. These are just a mess. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 07:20, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
You should not revert a whole edit that affects more than what you have issue with. I feel that since you have the problem, you should do the fixing up right, so I've reverted it (give or take a couple fixes/minor edits of my own) and you're free to add back in the colors (manually, instead of just reverting wholesale again, please). (Plus, I favor Lady Ariel's edit anyway: with the cells white, the table is brighter and more pleasant and it looks cleaner, as opposed to the dark colors for no needful reason.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:09, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
- ...Okay, I'm half sorry. Upon double-checking it, it seems you didn't "just" revert Lady Ariel's edit. But you did still undo a whole lot of stuff that was completely unnecessary (the borders, the widths, the numbers, colspans, "color:"s). So I apologize for the mischaracterization. But still: please just add back/adjust the colors next time (/this time). Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:22, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
- Actually, I'm the highest authority on decisions regarding our gaming articles aside from the EiC and deputy so I actually can revert an entire edit if I disagree with it. That means neither you nor Lady Ariel have the power or the authority to make such a major change within my section without consulting me first, or at least discussing it. The white background looks bland and boring. The colors make it pop and it looks more appealing in my opinion. If you disagree, discuss it, and we will put it up to a poll, but do not simply change it because it's what you want. That design has been there since the articles were written. You can't just suddenly up and decide to change it. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 02:57, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
- I respect your authority where it deserves respecting. To wit: if you insist, I'll bend regarding the color scheme (I won't even argue it, mostly because I don't know how to do so strongly enough). But your authority does not extend to useless code like all this. That is the main reason I undid your edit; the color scheme was entirely secondary. I thought you had merely reverted the whole edit without much thought, and I wanted you to be more discriminate in fixing your issue. Though I shortly realized that you hadn't actually reverted the whole edit, it was too late. Sadly, you still reverted practically the whole of my reversion as well, even after I tried to make my main issue clear to you. (You'll notice I only discussed the color scheme parenthetically.) That means you either didn't realize that the parts I re-edited afterwards were bloat/bad form or you didn't care. I hope the answer is that you didn't realize.
- All I'm really saying is that I expected better of you and hoped you would do better. For whatever reason, though, my hopes were betrayed and you didn't or weren't able to. Perhaps we can both do better next time... Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:00, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I see you are the one responsible for proposing this whole mystery situation. Your reason, however, is vague. Based on your edit history, you had believed prior to contact that she was voiced by Ortiz like the rest and particularly rejected the concept of Jayne as a candidate. The way you removed Ortiz and go to such lengths suggests that your contact was with a proxy or Ortiz rather than one from Jayne. Therefore I ask you this: What exactly did your contact say? More specifically, did it particularly state that Jayne was not the voice of Bianca despite the credit list (in other words, did it say that the credits themselves were incorrect)?
Do not think ill of me; I want only what's best. And what I'd like is to see is this triviality that has somehow inflated to this mass taken care of once and for all. Rosebr10 (talk) 23:43, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
- I don't know about Jayne at all. My contact was only able to confirm that Ortiz was not Bianca. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 02:54, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
- I knew it. So then did you choose the "Unknown" label as an absolute defense rather than an indication of sheer ambiguity? If so, in your personal opinion, regardless of this site's close-endedness concerning its procedures, do you, personally, believe at all that Bianca can be Tara Jayne? I want to know what you think. Rosebr10 (talk) 03:03, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
- I don't really have an opinion on it right at this very moment. I'd have to rewatch the movie, and then listen to some other roles Tara has done. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 03:28, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
The new spriteboxes and the previous generations
I really like the new sprite boxes! However, after looking through, I saw that many of them have the wrong Generation in the part where it says, 'This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation '. For example: Wingull (Which has 'Gen' as the parameter name instead of 'gen'), Metagross, Oshawott, Tepig, Chandelure, and many, many more. I would edit it myself, but this seems to me like it needs some sort of bot or something, because they are so many and so random. - Mr. Flix | Talk to me^^ 08:45, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
I noticed a ton of users registered with names based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This seems suspicious, especially since they were created one right after the other... Berrenta (talk) 02:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

I've noticed that Bulbapedia is missing some articles on a few of the new locations in ORAS, so I created two articles in my userspace as a draft. I haven't created a lot of new articles before, so I was wondering if you could tell me what is considered acceptable to put into the mainspace and what needs to get revised before it can go into the mainspace.

Hello. I'm wondering if Strong Jaw and Mega Launcher would count as variant abilities, like Snow Warning and Sand Stream, etc. They both have the same effect - increase the power of moves in a certain category by 50%, Strong Jaw for biting moves, Mega Launcher for aura and pulse moves. Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:37, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
- Yup, the two abilities definitely share similar effects! But for right now it looks like we're going to be focusing on cleaning up variant abilities. So don't do anything for now. But yes, we definitely agree with you that the two abilities are one and the same, just for two different types of moves. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 01:21, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
- Okay, didn't know there was a clean-up planned. Thanks for the response. Drake Clawfang (talk) 04:14, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Split for list of Mystery Dungeon characters
I'm sorry if you aren't the person to bother on this, but since you're the Head of Games, I figured you'd be a good person to bring it up to.
The list of Mystery Dungeon characters currently covers four different sets of games. It makes more sense to me to split the page up into four different pages--one for each set of games. It'd also be easier to navigate since there wouldn't be so many different sections on one page. I brought it up on the talk page for the article, but no one has responded. I wouldn't be in such a rush, except I plan on doing quite a few edits to some Mystery Dungeon articles, and it would involve linking to this list. So if the page is going to be split, I'd rather it be before I make all of the edits so that I won't have to go back and fix all the links.
If you could get back to me, or direct me to someone else I should talk to, I'd appreciate it. slimey01 02:37, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Pokémon Yellow PEGI Rating
I earlier interrupted what might have become an edit war to try to help figure out a solution to what was being edited. After a friendly chat, I made the call on how to mark Yellow for PEGI: unrated (I used N/A since it didn't exist at the time), and included a tooltip with the conflicting source listed as Pokémon UK, who claims it's rated. I know nothing about PEGI other than being told it was created in 2003, which was after Generation II.
As the Head of Games (this article, obviously, is a game), can you please review the discussion and my edit and determine if anything further should be done in regards to this? Other than contacting PEGI and getting official word from them, we have to go by the facts, I think. Feel free to outdent the discussion if you choose to comment. CycloneGU (talk) 05:06, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
- Just saw this. Thank you for making the call, appreciated. =) CycloneGU (talk) 05:49, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
- Hello, I was actually the one who started the discussion. As you probably saw, those of us who were involved in the discussion came to a slightly different conclusion. Although I'll respect your final decision, I request that you read our discussion in order to see why we came to the conclusion we did. (It was linked above, so you may have already read it.) Thanks! —The Sackinator (talk) 04:35, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
PokéDex entries/Game Locations
I would just like to ask for the PokéDex entries and Game Locations section in each individual "Species (Pokémon)" pages, for which games are supposed to be written in white or black texts. Some articles feature Omega Ruby with black text, while some others feature Omega Ruby in white text, same as for Alpha Sapphire, and maybe previous generations. Or either black or white text is acceptable? --Ruixiang95 (talk) 14:49, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
- Hi, hopefully I can take this one, Jo.
- I'm already working on correcting this. I asked ht14 about this yesterday, who checked with the editor-in-chief and confirmed they are all to be white text. I have gone ahead just yesterday and updated all Hoenn Pokémon pages - which as you note were all mixed up even there - to now all have white text. This is the standard from what Kogoro says. CycloneGU (talk) 14:52, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
- Just to clarify, the only labels I refer to are OR and AS. The others are all fine. CycloneGU (talk) 15:00, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Making Pokémon Yellow's PEGI rating be "3" by default and mentioning where it is from.
Hello. I was actually the one who started the discussion you dealt with regarding Pokémon Yellow's PEGI rating. Those of us who were involved in the discussion came to a slightly different conclusion than you did; we thought that since PEGI's actual website—the "more official" source—lables it unrated, we should make that the default choice while also noting (e.g., by tooltip) the other source's "3" rating. Although I'll respect your final decision, I request that you read our discussion in order to see why we came to the conclusion we did (unless you did read it already). Thanks! (As you may notice, I basically already posted this in the Pokémon Yellow PEGI Rating section above. I'm just re-posting this to make sure you got it.) —The Sackinator (talk) 17:14, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Need a consensus on whether is it DexNav or Hidden Pokémon on the Pokémon pages. --Ruixiang95 (talk) 08:20, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
- I would use Hidden Pokémon personally. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 08:59, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
- So the example of the Lillipup page works fine with you? --Ruixiang95 (talk) 12:05, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
- Just to tack on if this is OK, here's a related discussion. I would suggest that you never saw one until you received the DexNav, making them DexNav exclusive, but the arguments regarding not needing to actually load up DexNav to approach them carries weight here. This would be a case where I have to agree to disagree. CycloneGU (talk) 15:20, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Probably a dumb question
I'm a bit confused as to why Swords Dance and Barrier are considered variations to a lot of moves on Template:Amnesia but much less on Template:Agility, which is the template used on their pages. It seems contradictory to me. Should those two be removed from the Acid Armor (template named Amnesia for some reason) variations? Or am I missing something obvious again? Nairbnroh (talk) 10:43, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
- I'm not sure to be honest, but I can say we're planning on completely reworking move variations and the like at some point. So it will be changed then. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 09:13, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
