Pokémon-ex images

Just got 52 of 'em for articles that need images. At some point this week, starting with RS, I'm gonna use the Japanese site to get all remaining EX-required images. Cipher (Talk) 22:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Awesome. MaverickNate 23:18, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


So your for sure that the policy has changed for edits on userspace because i have been hit by 2 confusion ataacks and now my HP is at 3. -- Landfish7 16:34, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Um, I got hit again by confusion attack, except lucky for me i had a hyper potion but any way, who is Chocolate I heard a lot about you too. Is that user doing something to frustrate you?? I dont mean to get personal but it seems pretty major. -- Landfish7 17:14, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't get into that if I were you. It's a long story. Cipher (Talk) 17:15, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
VERY LONG. You can find out yourself by looking at Chocolate's talk page archive, however.RexRacer17:18, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
When you guys say long you aren't kidding. Chocolate is one drama king!!!!-- Landfish7 20:30, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
For a second i was going to try to fix things but understanding him it would never work. -- Landfish7 20:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm not a drama king anymore. My personality and feelings are different now. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 20:33, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
You dont have to butt in, but that's good that your gettiong a hold of your self. Just please stay that way and stay here. -- Landfish7 20:54, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Discussions on Main Pages

This is the only edit i'm making on a User talk: namespace. Does the rules apply for talk pages on main articles because i don't want to get in more trouble. I was going to make a comment on sir aaron to help with a small problem i saw and i don't know if i should or not. -- Landfish7 00:35, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Have we suddenly scared users out of commenting on talk pages? You can go ahead kid. TTEchidna 22:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


What is so bad about it? We are supposed to use link templates whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:20, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Not the G template. That's to be used when there's a better reason to use it than having something like Pokémon Trainer. Trainer is not a game. G was made and intended for games. TTEchidna 22:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
So, basically, you discourage the usage of convenient unintended shortcuts that some link templates provide? Such as using the AP template for hat or friends? I'm Missingno. Master. Come see my new and improved user page, and tell me what you think! 02:57, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
the hat and friends thing actually makes sense. he wasnt using it at all. he just used it to link Pokémon because hes too lazy to click the little é in the palette. apparently you are too. -- MAGNEDETH 03:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I am not lazy. We are simply supposed to link templates whenever possible, or so I thought. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 03:12, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
you were using a GAME template to link Pokémon to itself. that is LAZY. we dont link Pokémon every time its mentioned, and you know that. or, you SHOULD know that by now. -- MAGNEDETH 03:29, 24 January 2009
Wait, you can DO that? Pokémon *checks preview* WOAH! It actually works! Dang, you gotta admit, such shortcuts are cool. Sure, it's lazy, but then again, so am I! I'm Missingno. Master. Come see my new and improved user page, and tell me what you think! 03:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
yes it works, yes its nifty, but dont do it. -- MAGNEDETH 03:38, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

DETH referred this question of mine to you: Do you know if the shortcuts {{g|}} and {{ga|}} are both for the game template? --Bulbapedian - Talk 00:07, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea why he sent you to me. I really don't know. Talk to TTE. MaverickNate 02:05, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry about that, i didn't know, is there anything i can do to help...?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:30, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Whoops, not today, i have to get off now. again, sorry.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:31, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Could just look at Special:Contributions/Cold to see the pages Cold edited. Anyway, can I help out? What all needs to be done? — Laoris (Blah) 22:35, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Trainer card switchover to the new template. Make sure that pre-DP Supporters and Stadiums are classed as Trainers, with subclass being Supporter and Stadium. Yeaaaaah. TTEchidna 22:38, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
So basically like the change you made to Balloon Berry (Neo Revelation 60)? — Laoris (Blah) 22:43, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


For Pokémon ex, can I italicize the ex? Also, can I change "the card's" to "this card's?" ht14 04:37, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

I guess so. MaverickNate 05:52, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
For the move, it was just an idea. Some people may not know of its referral, but if you don't like, got it. ht14 05:00, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

I have a question...I noticed a new section: this new? If so, may as well utilize Template:DL... ht14 02:02, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Never mind. A new thing. Under evostage, default is already Basic. Tried. Works fine without that. ht14 04:30, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Issue. Fossil images. How will that work? Do we even have those sprites? While we're at it, how about those dual-typed sprites? ht14 04:44, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

You know

Every LT could be called a laziness template. I'm just wondering where we draw the line between Template:M and Template:Soa.- unsigned comment from Martonimos (talkcontribs)

I talked it over with TTE about Template:Fi, and we both agreed it was a laziness template. We usually discuss whether one is or not, and then TTE has a system to figure out which are as well. MaverickNate 12:04, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to start paring down the list. We are starting to get some ridiculous ones. I'm assuming that, since Template:La was similar to Fi, we'll want to phase that one out as well? --((Marton imos)) 20:51, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Eh, perhaps. It's really not that hard to type out a link like that one manually, and the LT for it just makes it more confusing, IMO. We already have trouble getting people to use LTs, it doesn't help that there's so many of them. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 21:54, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


In case you haven't noticed, other pages have multiple question marks in their titles. So why can ????? not have question marks in its title? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:43, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

TCG Images

After much splurging on eBay, I've got way more scans, including these. For the pages without images I've added them, and for cards marked unsatisfactory I've updated them, but what about the others? There's a few, uh... "different quality" images that are not inadequate as such, but (I think) not as good as my scans. The issue is that they say stuff like they were "donated by the very lovely people at _______" and I don't want to insultingly change all these images all over the place, and yet... >_< I'm not very good at this wiki stuff. Anyway, you'd seem to know, so what do you think? Should I update those cards? (Or maybe you'd like to do it, with Modlike discretion?) --Alamedyang (talk) 02:21, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll answer. If the scans are marked in any way, do not use them. If they can be traced in any way back to the source by anyone with reasonable computer skills, do not use them. If they're generic, unmarked scans, by all means go ahead and upload them! --ニョロトノ666 03:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of TCG images... why is there a Fighting energy background for the card Medicham...? ht14 04:00, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Reverse holo. MaverickNate 04:01, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, so THAT's what you meant. I thought it was something different. ht14 04:06, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Platinum cards

Yo, I'm out for most of the day but I've uploaded all the drafts I made that PokéBeach posted scans for. I knew they'd come in handy. I've got a fair few more, I'd say between 20 and 30, for the next lot of cards. However, as I'm off in a few, I can't do the articles that I don't have drafts for. I'm going to try to get as many images for them uploaded into the archives, however, and they'll be in Category:Platinum at the Archives. As for sources, all remaining cards are from Galactic's Conquest except the following:

  • Entry Pack DPt: #37 Palkia, #38 Shaymin, #49 Grotle, #56 Monferno, #59 Prinplup, #60 Probopass, #68 Carnivine, #70 Chimchar, #71 Combee, #79 Lapras, 84 Nosepass, #85 Piplup, #98 Tauros, #100 Torkoal. I'm pretty sure that's all of them.
  • Giratina vs Dialga Deck Kit: #111 Miasma Valley.

I'm pretty sure that's everything. Any problems, let me know. Cipher (Talk) 11:33, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Also, one last note before I go, I'll upload all remaining card images when I get back tonight. Cipher (Talk) 14:12, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Administrator Status

In order to keep our Administrator list currently up-to-date, this is a generic "are you there" message.

You've been assumed as currently active and are already marked as such, but if you disagree with this, either edit the List of administrators to reflect your status (Active, Hiatus, Inactive), or reply here when you get the chance. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:12, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. I'm here and active MaverickNate 20:01, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

TCG Link

Thanks, message received. Like, I REALLY don't know much when it comes to the coding, I even remember asking Sol if when redirecting a page to also add the nowiki that shows up in his explanation.--DRAGONBEASTX 20:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Uh, another TCG thing, we DO add facts that some moves may be based off others. I mean, Scorch burns, simple as that, and Will-O-Wisp does that too. We DO add those facts in there.--DRAGONBEASTX 04:20, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Think about it. How many other attacks burn too? Lots. And you know what. Will-O-Wisp has appeared in the TCG as a different name (as itself). Furthermore, attacks have the potential to have different effects in the TCG. Confusion causes Paralysis, but not confusion. Explain that one? If you want to add it again, do so. It's just I don't think it is based off of that. MaverickNate 04:24, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi, Maverick. Could you delete Potpourri Island and move Popuri Island into "Potpourri Island" (yes, it's the same place).

I think you should also move Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 3 to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky because THIS IS the official title of the game. --Maxim 16:50, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

We have the Mystery Dungeon games at the "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon #" because of the first two. We can't move them without having crazy titles, and it isn't consistant. If you want to bring it up with someone else, like TTE, be my guest, but I'm not comfortable doing it myself. I'll deal with the island thing though. MaverickNate 16:52, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
We shouldn't have those pages titled so because those aren't real titles (not to mention that MD Sky is just a third version of Time/Darkness, not a new series). I think that they should be moved to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Team Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky respectively (the anime special would get the (anime) thing added to it). But yeah, it's a pretty revolutionary change, so I think I'll have to notify higher admins about that. --Maxim 17:05, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I started doing that a little late. . シンジShinjiLover,Edits 20:40, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Your edits to

User:Missingno000/Kanto_Parliament These edits were unnecessary. I ripped an election table off the wiki for a political simulation I am in, and I had to leave the computer before I was finished. 欠番 01:27, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect. They were necessary, as if those links were left for much longer, they would have made their way onto the Wanted Pages. As those links had no reason to appear on the Wanted Pages, they had to be removed. Mav was nice enough to relink them to your userspace, in the chance you may have wanted to make those to be subpages but accidentally linked them to the mainspace. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:39, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


Should the TCG cards with Resistances before the Gen. IV decks have the -30 next to their resistance on the infobox?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:23, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but I would prefer if you wouldn't add them yet, or change the infobox to the level field, just because, this weekend we are editing every card page anyway to update it to new style, so you might as well wait for then. MaverickNate 20:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry, I will notice that in later ocasions ;D Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 01:03, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

My Sandbox

Hey, it says that you have deleted my sandbox, am I but allowed to make a new one??? --Theryguy512 17:40, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. That was just because mainspace info was just sitting in sandboxes, and I asked if I could add all the info I could get out of them and delete the pages. You're perfectly welcome to recreate it. MaverickNate 17:44, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. --Theryguy512 17:46, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Re:Template g

Can you explain to me why this template should not be used in TCG pages? On a related note, I want to tell you that I want to contribute with better things for the TCG and TFG pages. So can you give me some links, going through which, I can learn a thing or two about the do-s and don't-s about editing these pages. I would also like to know how a user like me (who don't get to play the TCG) can help Project TCG. Thanks.--Sher-e-Bengal- 04:36, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Template:G was ruled as a laziness template, and I would prefer that it is not used in my project. Also, the only link that would do any good would be the non-existant TCG Mos, (which I will still have to write). I know nothing about the TFG, but I do believe that a new set of Figures is in limbo for release, and those will probably need pages soon. There are some plans I have for project TCG, but most of the things are done, all we are doing now is catching up on mini-projects that are somewhat just fix wording if you find it and such. My side of the TCG is kind of complete/put off until we get other things done, so you will probably have better luck asking Politoed666 if you could help with the Deck side of the TCG. Sorry. MaverickNate 04:47, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok. I'll ask Politoed666 later about this. And thanks for explaining why {{g}} should not be used. I'll keep it in mind.--Sher-e-Bengal- 04:51, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Zhen and evkl don't top me in power. I listen to them most of the time because they're Bulbagarden staff, but if you'll look, neither are actually E.B. members. And if you'll look on the E.B. page, we have the authority to set official binding policy on Bulbapedia. Essentially, evkl is a consultant and someone I generally listen to, but he's not my boss. Just sayin'. --ニョロトノ666 00:10, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Manga and anime

We decided that Manga and anime were totally different. If anything, anime supersedes manga!--KukiTalk 21:08, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

One, that's biased; and two, we never decided that they were different. All we decided was that they should be the same, and the correct way like how the manga is. MaverickNate 21:10, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

But that uses up room, and also THE FORUMS!--KukiTalk 21:11, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

All I remember on the forums is you saying an arrogant comment about how the anime is better than the TCG, and then tried to change it and get Sketch in trouble. MaverickNate 21:13, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Those were two different ones. There was a whole topic on Mnga nicknames, and u removed it--KukiTalk 21:14, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

So, is my Lorelei's Cloyster article good enough yet if I add the teamplate for voice actor needed?--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 22:30, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to see a more overall opening statement. It is currently too focused on the anime and not about the Pokémon in general. MaverickNate 22:39, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

What's the big idea?

Almost every time I update the template on a card, you undo it. If there's something wrong, fix it. If not, leave it. I thought the idea was to update the template, not to have you revert the template.--Salamence 747 03:11, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

sometimes, you're "update" is clusterfucked so badly that it would be easier to start from scratch. MaverickNate 03:33, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Party linking

I realized last night that the names don't link any where, but is it possible to have the names AND links to the Pokémon at the same time? I couldn't figure out if anything would work, so I just left it. If I can't, then it's fine. R.A. Hunter B. 21:17, 17 April 2009 (UTC)


I don't think that Rono is needed anymore.--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 01:45, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Clear your cache, its gone.--RexRacer 01:47, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
OK, but I think that you should try to focus on improving the anime (episode summaries)--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:00, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Why? those aren't currently needed articles, those are summaries. That main page feature is for redlinks from the wanted pages. Summaries would come in through the stubs, which will only change if someone improves CoroCoro. And, why do I need to do any anime stuff, I'm TCG leader, not anime. MaverickNate 02:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Just pointing it out, and could I please get a list of who's what leader?--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:48, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks (I hate having discussions on other people's talk pages (I had enough with Missingno., what do you think of the new lorelei's cloyster and can we add it yet?))--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:55, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

So, do you want me to add it or will you (I saw that you unprotected it) and a better version would be to look at my version User:Pokemonguy1/Lorelei's Cloyster--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 03:36, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Make sure to categorize it. MaverickNate 03:41, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Did you Know

did you know that pokemon wiki are saying that we copied from wikipedia? i was hoping you could do sumthing--Masta Pokemongirl 15:09, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

wikipedia has tiny articles for pokemon. Ours are incredibly detailed. So no, we don't copy. They say that because they were caught stealing.User:DCM 15:28, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Expansion checklists

Now that the cards have all been done, I was thinking of shifting my attention back to the expansions. TTE made a modification to the Base Set checklists, so I was wondering if the others should follow suit. I've been tinkering around with colours of the templates for the next few sets, based on either the primary colours in the logo or booster design. Let me know what you think. I'm not sure if they should stay centred or not though, especially with later sets that have images of the boosters along the right. Maybe the booster images for each set could be pooled in a gallery under their own heading, I don't know. ~~nuva-kal 10:24, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

The main reason why I haven't done anything with it, is because I don't like TTE's color scheme, and both of those screw with my monobook, and I'm not sure If I want that on set pages yet. Also, the reason why we have the images to the right is because the two sets won't fit side by side. I'll put this on my to do list, but I have beigger things to worry about at the moment. MaverickNate 18:55, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for making me feel like my contributions are valued and worthwhile. Yenreb 01:48, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Vector TCG Set Icons

A while back, I traced over the expansion symbols from the first dozen TCG sets in Illustrator, and was thinking of uploading them as SVGs on bulbapedia, but soon learned that SVG preview images don't work. I talked to Kogoro about it, told me to find out what you think. (Samples: Intropack Neo Totodile Icon, Intropack Neo Chikorita Icon) --Alamedyang (talk) 18:28, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Do you happen to know why this message keeps popping out of images:

*tc26* 02:31, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that happening, but I don't have any idea why. Maybe ask one of the inner-site people, like Archaic, or Zhen Lin? They might know. MaverickNate 02:47, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't really see them active here so they might no answer. Might TTE know? *tc26* 02:49, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
You prolly could. MaverickNate 02:52, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon cards with different type of energy

Hi, as you are the TCG expert in this place, I would like to know, if there is a list of TCG Pokémon cards that use different type of energy for their attacks, as their own type. For exemple the Water-type Lanturn with a Lightning attack of Aquapolis. Yohrd 07:43, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

No, because that appears on so many cards. You just gotta look around at the card pages. MaverickNate 18:59, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Inconsistency in Japanese song titles

Hi Nate. I wanted to get your opinion as one of our resident admins on an issue that was brought up last year and has yet to be addressed. I prefer all discussion on the subject to be here for easy reference, so if you could please read the last two comments on the first section (called "Starting out") and give your input that would be great. --electAbuzzzz 09:56, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

PLAY Promotional Cards

Hey Nate, just a heads up about a tiny thing I spotted: this article is categorized in the nonexisting category "PLAY Proimotional cards". So I was just about to fix the typo, when I realized that the category simply doesn't exist and the other cards aren't categorized in a similar category. I wasn't sure whether to remove the category from the page or create a category... Your call. --electAbuzzzz 13:17, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Question marks

I think I found another way around our problem... While making a list of articles with question marks in their title, I realized that if going through a redirect, the page works without a problem. For example, if I link to Is It Summer?, the wiki will try to load the page Is It Summer, which is a redirect to Is It Summer? - and that works. So, in theory, if every page that hase a question mark will have a redirect without a question mark - it'll work just fine. Not sure if it's good enough, though... --electAbuzzzz 14:17, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Winter Vacation Soundtrack

You mentioned a "Pikachu's Winter Vacation Soundtrack" on the 2DO list... I've never heard of it and I can't even find it on-line. Are you sure you're not confused with Pokémon World (single)? --electAbuzzzz 22:58, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: Epicodes

But I don't know all the epicodes... plus I get kinda confused as it includes the three banned episodes, and Princess Vs Princess and the Purr-Fect Hero are listed before Case of the K9 Caper and its following three episodes, as opposed to after, like in the version we are familiar with.Ghostkaiba297 16:06, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Nevermind, I'm using epicodes now. Ghostkaiba297 05:53, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


You just added Yvette Laboy to the 2DO list... When I went to the link, it says PAK once deleted that page because he didn't consider her notable enough. We need to decide - not just about her, but about the others as well. What makes a musician notable? --electAbuzzzz 20:02, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I say that they all are, because they made a song about the franchise, why shouldn't that be notable enough? MaverickNate 21:38, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Anime Physics

Just when the debate between Hunter and PsychicRider has been resolved, another one begins? Or maybe I could prevent it, I still haven't resolved the Tail Whip debate yet... anyway, I atfirst put it on the Team Rocket article, but Psy removed it and said that it was anime physics. I put it there, Hunter removed it and said that it was redundant. After the three of us discussed this for about a month, Psy told me to go to an admin. So I asked TTEchidna, the general guy in charge of this site, and he said it was anime physics! If the summary of my changes seemed a bit off, I apologize, I forgot that other people besides Hunter and Psy were watching, that was intended specifically for them. So can I put it back on? Ghostkaiba297 04:31, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Wait, you knew about him? I read your message on my talkpage... He never said I couldn't add it either. Maybe we should ask him, and see whether or not he thinks I should. Ghostkaiba297 04:34, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh, you're also an admin? I checked the list... this could get interesting. Two admins disagree... but out of curiosity, why don't you think it belongs in anime physics, and do you think it belongs more with Team Rocket? (Oh, and why did you sign your name next to my comment?) Ghostkaiba297 04:42, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Two admins are not disagreeing with each other. We are on one side disagreeing with you. You just don't get it. MaverickNate 04:45, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes I get it now. He specifically told me no. I told you and him that since you're admins, what you say goes, and I admit defeat. Looks like everyone'll be kept in the dark... but can't you and me and PsychicRider just shake hands and say "Good game" or something? I want us to not hate each other anymore, but it looks like both you and him do. Psy and I appeared we were cool until TTE voiced his opinion, then he began to hate me. And I really don't want to be enemies with an admin, and not just because he might block me or ban me. Can't we put aside our differences and become friends? I am fully aware that TTE does not want the immortality trivia up there, and neither do you. So can't we put that debate behind us? Please?
And sure, I screwed up the Team Rocket's Immortality/Anime Physics thing and maybe the Tail Whip thing, but that's just the negative. If you check my contributions, you'll see how many pages I edited for the better, such as adding synopsis where needed, and more trivia... And correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought admins weren't in a position to antagonize other users (or does that only apply to the Dragonball wiki?). If you're not antagonizing me, let me know so I can do what I can so we can get along. Ghostkaiba297 05:51, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
OK, so let's see if we're on the same page here:
  • Me and PsychicRider and Hunter get into a discussion about whether or not Team Rocket's resistance to death should go under the Team Rocket article, the anime physics article, or just not go anywhere at all. At first Psy thinks it's anime physics, while Hunter thinks it doesn't go anywhere, and I don't know where to put it, and Psy sides with Hunter, and I ask an admin, and two admins say that it doesn't go anywhere, so that important bit of trivia will be left out for all eternity.
  • You got really frustrated with me for editing the userpage too many times. However, I was just editing different sections of the userpage, so the editing page wouldn't be so big. But isn't 4 days a little harsh? Other people will think I'm not keeping up with the current events. In the extremly slim chance that I do get to updating the immortality trivia, I'll say that they said it doesn't go anywhere, and that's the end of the debate. I know how I misunderstood what TTE was saying.
  • Admins on this wiki can antagonize other users, unlike on the Dragonball wiki, but you don't hate me (yet, most of the users do in the end).
  • And on the Tail Whip debate... I mean, a wild Squirtle in the Squirtle Squad used Water Gun, didn't it? And Sudowoodo used Mimic, they said so. But anyway, whether or not a wild Pokemon can use named techniques is irrelevant, we have all come to a consensus that a Pokemon hitting an opponent with its tail is not Tail Whip or Slam, just hitting an opponent with its tail.
So now that all our misunderstandings are cleared up, can we get along? Please? I wouldn't want to be enemies with the second admin I've ever known on this Pokemon encyclopedia, and I try not to eff things up or cause trouble, didn't you ever see the episode synopsis I added to the articles that needed them? Ghostkaiba297 06:16, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Hooray. More sockpuppets.

I think we should lock the account creation before this guy causes anymore trouble. --AT 18:36, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


just out of curiosity, why is someone creating all sorts of new account that are called "maverick nate [insert cruel action here]"? do you know what he/she has against you?Mijzelffan 19:37, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

It's because Nate keeps blocking this guy. It's obviously Grawp, the world's biggest asshole. --AT 19:41, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Edit waring

The user HoennMaster kept removing some trivia from the DP105 article about 3 times saying that facial and vocal expressions of distress do not mean anything involving the triva.

When the trivia was added back with better wording to relieve confussion, the user Sol removed it trying to justify his actions with Stats which are a in game mechanism and have hardly any use in the anime aside from levels being mentioned here and there.

This whole thing keeps going in circles and its going end up with an admin getting mad, banning and locking the thread if this half-brained removal of some trivia keeps up. Yami 18:44, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

This whole situation seems quite Farfetch'd, in my opinion. Sorry, but I prefer not to get stuck into anime situations. MaverickNate 18:48, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon Card GB Exclusives

I've noticed most of the Pokédex entries on these cards are incorrect. Almost all of them are copied from Pokemon Yellow, when the majority of them are not. If you compare the Japanese pages' dex entries with the official English translations, you can see which ones belong there. Last time I tried to edit existing translations, I was yelled at, so I leave it up to you. You can either keep the fake entries, or add in the real ones. Thought I'd point it out. Mefredbob 03:01, 1 June 2009 (UTC)


You've seen how I spammed the archives with pictures (well you must have since you blocked me xD). If you wonder why I did it, I did it to proove that angie's eyes are brown. So now my question is: to avoid it from happening again, is there a way to use pictures on bulbapedia from an other source then the archives? If there is, can you tell me? Mijzelffan 20:24, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Either hosting sites like photobucket or imageshack. MaverickNate 23:00, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Because, you know, hotlinking images isn't wrong or anything. *chide* Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 23:36, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I know that, but's what's the wikicode to add images from other sources? Mijzelffan 14:42, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Just link it? Like... put down the http web address of the image and it should appear. MaverickNate 14:47, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Pokédex Entries

How do we know if the entries are done and put on the Pokémon's page? Should I delete them or something else? Also, could I add my name to the Project Pokédex page or is that pointless as it is supposed to merge? -MasterKenobi 02:44, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Don't delete them, just put a mark where you stop. Some are already done, but deleting them would be a bad idea. Feel free to put your name on it, if you wish. MaverickNate 02:46, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, one last question: do we want to add the Pokédex entry to the episodes too? -MasterKenobi 02:51, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
No, for that, we want a list. Like the one seen on my Sandbox MaverickNate 02:53, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Is that list then going to go on the episodes page that it corresponds with? Also what should we do with the Pokédex entries such as the Ghost Pokémon entry from episode EP023? thanks! -MasterKenobi 16:08, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
No, the list will be on a seperate page. MaverickNate 17:30, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Congrats, you deserve it.--ForceFire 07:11, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Since you seem to be in charge of the TCG...

...and I being "that guy who does crazy things with Formes", I felt that I should come here to ask you about an idea I had had about slightly implementing forms onto the TCG disambags. Now we could do this two ways: I could attempt to describe it to you, or just do a couple to give you the general idea. What do you think?--MisterE13 07:29, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Make one in your userspace. But, I'm warning you, I'm skeptical about your ideas, so it probably won't be implemented. I'm not a big fan of change. MaverickNate 13:47, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
There ya go I did Gastrodon because it sums up my two ideas: the color changer for it and Wormadam as well as the show/hides. Feel free to OK one, both, or none.--MisterE13 01:53, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I really do not like show hides: I never have. It separates the cards when they are both equal. Either form can evolve from either form. Separating them misrepresents what the cards actually do. This also applies for Wormadam. Also, the Gastrodon cards have only appeared twice each. We are unsure of whether these types will change or not. I don't want two pages out of the 493 to be different...I'd rather keep everything the same. MaverickNate 16:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
That's OK then.--MisterE13 16:43, 30 June 2009 (UTC)


I was told to go for a second opinion, so here I am. Serebii ( just added that the PokéWalk that was revealed on today's Pokémon Sunday episode.

Sandbox does that look like enough for its own page or should it just be combined with HeartGold/SoulSilver? Additionally there is a picture for it that needs to be uploaded and I can't get into the archives. -MasterKenobi 04:34, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, I think we should wait off on it little bit. All we've got is a little footage from an episode of Pokémon Sunday. Definitely when it is out, or featured in CoroCoro...but I don't think we have enough yet. And, you should be ab;e to get into the Archives. Use your name and password from here and it should work. MaverickNate 04:53, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I am still getting this error after trying to log in: Login error There is no user by the name "MasterKenobi". Check your spelling. -MasterKenobi 05:06, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't know then, sorry. MaverickNate 05:19, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I guess someone did decide to make it. MaverickNate 15:17, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Yep, I saw that. That article should be protected as it is part of the HeartGold/SoulSilver stuff and it's not. -MasterKenobi 03:01, 10 June 2009 (UTC)


You know how in the Pokédex entries we have been putting the episodes such as DP056 in the episode catagory? Should I start putting the episode titles or do we just want to keep it as the episode number?? -MasterKenobi 03:01, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I left it as epicode, because if we went by title, it wouldn't be in the same order as it is now. These templates are sortable, and having the episode titles would jumble up the order that the actual episodes were in. And most of our lists of anime information keep the epicode. MaverickNate 03:06, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
ok, thanks. Some good news: Diamond and Pearl is done up to the current English Dub. Also, if you haven't seen already I wrote something more under the walker thing. -MasterKenobi 04:05, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Good job! Now all we have to do is make sure that page had all of them... MaverickNate 04:07, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Yep, I will get right on that. When can we call this an actual project by the way as it has more than enough info...
It probably won't be a project, it will mostly just turn into a page. MaverickNate 16:22, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. We can figure that out once they are all done. -MasterKenobi 16:31, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I may take you up on that if the account stuff doesn't get fixed soon. Thanks for the offer though. -MasterKenobi 17:36, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Speaking of the Archives, the Project Games logo never had me upload 2 of the same images. Oh, and where, except seconds before I got banned, did you tell me to stop?--Mew* a.k.a. Prmatt11 was here at 01:52, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Image edit war

Wouldn't this be an edit war to your standards? Only two things are different here: the images are the same, and there is one less edit. See, you just did this due to what was on my userpage. Truly, for Project Games, I NEVER UPLOADED THE SAME IMAGE TWICE! If you think so, give me real proof.--Mew* a.k.a. Prmatt11 was here at 15:42, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

User talk:Alpha Totodile/Archive 1

Protect plz. Don't want anyone leaving messages in there. --αワニノコ 12:39, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, buzzzzy took care of it. --αワニノコ 22:45, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Uploading to the Archives was kind enough to let us use some of thier images (trainer sprites from Colosseum & XD, to be presice). I want to upload these images to the archives. 1): how do I do that. 2): how can I make sure that gets due credit? --Manga-in-a-bottle 03:27, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

1)There is a link on the side bar saying "Upload File". If you are able to log in on the Archives, then it will let you, (use your username and password from here) If it doesn't work, it is because account creation is disabled and it will not work until the big guys enable it again.
2) Crediting is an extremely simple task. On the upload file screen, there is a box that says "Summary" this is where you describe the image, and put any applicable categories and such in it. Always add summaries describing the image, categories of what is in the image, and a link back to the site where you got the image. These things are mandatory. If you are able to do it, all should work out just fine. MaverickNate 03:45, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Damn, it won't let me log in...--Manga-in-a-bottle 04:20, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon redirects

Should Pokémon redirects (like Remoraid) be changed to have TCG groups on them as have the redirect pages like Eevee? It would help when searching for a specific Pokémon's card. --ルレ 06:18, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

No. The TCG page is a subpage of the main species page. Politoed666 only put the TCG disambiguation pages on the redirects that already had something on them. Eevee already had 6 things on it, so it was't a big deal. The ones without any would cause many inconvenience problems and people would bitch about it MaverickNate 12:30, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Reply to this

Hey, I was just trying to help. Besides, the information hasn't even been uploaded to this article, so the additional, HELPFUL information towards this future game isn't a bad thing, and the image was a minor fault on my part. Way to be an ass. -- 050294 20:52, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Image Issue

a:File:Pokémon SP M.png...sometimes it appears, and sometimes it doesn't... ht14 12:22, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

That's probably more of a server issue than something wrong with the image. I've had a few like that in the past couple of days, too. — darklordtrom 12:29, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Do a Ctrl-F5 on Firefox or IE to clear the cache. That helps.--Mew* a.k.a. Prmatt11 was here at 13:41, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
See it again. It doesn't work...caching it only sometimes works... ht14 14:43, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon HGSS Screenshots

Hello Maverick, I'm happy that there are people like you who work with efficiency. Anche se gli screenshots si assomigliano, non sono uguali. Those pictures I have taken personally with Windows Movie Maker, I'm telling you the truth. Don't take me for a newbie, but because I have to cite the source of a site on an image captured by me? I hope this misunderstanding is resolved soon. -- Brendon 11:11, 5 Luglio 2009 (UTC)


Serebii gave you thanks! See "Tuesday: Two Promo Sets & An Episode Title" post.
Yet still gave no credit to BN for a few dub titles... :-D

Thank you!

For moving Tatiane Keplmair's page! ^^ -- RikkiKitsune 22:58, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

No problem MaverickNate 22:59, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for answering

Really, thank you =) Someone erased what I wrote, but I thought that could be worthy noting if it really happened. About your answer... Ok, but, am I obligated to have rods? I mean... I think I can get there with no rods at all, can't I? Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 02:24, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
