By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Card attack origins!

Hey! Concerning origins for cards. The Ability or Attack names need to be the exact same for it to get mentioned in the Origin section for cards. Anything that is "This move is similar to..." "...does the same thing as..." "...sounds like..." is speculation, and is being removed from origin sections. Speculation borderlines opinion, which has no place in an encyclopedia. Remember, exact or nothing! MaverickNate 01:38, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

The instances like Secret Wonders Dugtrio are just instances that haven't been removed yet. the only time it is notable is when the English name is exact, when the Japanese name is exact, or when the Japanese name contains a a slightly modified version of the attack (Like Confusion and Super Confusion.) Just no one has formally gone through all 7000 or so cards and removed the speculation. It is mostly removing it when something else on the page is being changed, or keeping it from being added.

Event Double Redirects

Please hold off on fixing any more of the double redirects for event pages, as they are in the processing of being relinked properly. The double redirects you fixed are ones that are going to be deleted. Thanks. Lady Ariel 23:05, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Userspace

By the way, how long until you get a userspace? I've been wondering. ~Pikalup~ (talk) 23:16, 15 April 2013 (UTC)Pikalup

I think you need the system to autoconfirm you. This means about 10 edits, and a few weeks about four days on the site. By the way, you don't need to put your username at the end of your four tildes; it already puts that in your signature.MF231 23:19, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
You actually need more than ten edits to be able to make the userspace. Only admins know the specific amount of edits needed, and they never tell anybody, mainly to avoid users editing the mainspace to have that amount of edits and ditch it for the userspace.--ForceFire 01:12, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Right

Yes, for sure, it's a perfect name. - Pokémon Questions? -- 09:34, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Tag Battle

What was wrong with the BW image used on the Tag Battle page? PattyMan 00:55, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Whoops. Must have been some edit conflict or caching issue. All I was trying to do was link to Team Rocket Grunt (Trainer class) in the file's description. MF231 00:58, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Not sure if the BW image should be added back since the edit was somewhat reverted. PattyMan 01:01, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
