Please use the <ab> tag to deal with song lyrics. There are examples in some of the Japanese song articles. Also, section headings are capitalised the same way as article names on Bulbapedia, i.e. only the first word and proper names are capitalised. - 振霖T 03:47, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Idea I had

Hi. What's up? I had an idea that I wanted to share with you, to get another person's opinion. We've both been contributing a lot to the music articles on Bulbapedia. How about we start a Project for music? Would you be interested in joining? Do you think it's necessary?--ElectAbuzzzz 21:50, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, I don't know too much about the music. But if you need any assistance, I'd be glad to help you out. I actually own the 2BA Master cassette and the Totally Pokémon CD--PAK Man 21:52, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
Hmmm... Does it say exactly who preformed each of the songs there?--ElectAbuzzzz 12:51, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Not to my knowledge. However, I do have some episodes of the Orange Islands and Johto Journeys from their original broadcast dates. These include Pikachu's Jukebox and Pokémon Karaokemon, so at least in those articles I can write about which episodes they appeared in. --PAK Man 20:00, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Nomination for adminstratorship

You have been nominated for administratorship on Bulbapedia. Congratulations. - 振霖T 07:08, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much! I am very honored by this privilage. --PAK Man 15:07, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Question of relevance

Hi. I've a question for you (now that you're a big shot :))... I finished doing articles for almost all core Pokémon songs. I wonder, though, whether non-Pokémon songs that were featured on Pokémon soundtracks (the first two movies' soundtracks, of course), are worthy of their own articles. Thoughts? --ElectAbuzzzz 21:41, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment :). Anyway, what songs were you thinking about? If it were a song like "Brother My Brother," which was featured prominantly in the first movies' climax, then I think it would be a good idea. However, I don't think "Soda Pop" by Britney Spears would warrant its own article. Also, the content of some of those songs is debatable. I'm mostly thinking of M2M's "Don't Say You Love Me," which appears to be about Ash and Misty. Also, maybe the song should be exclusive to the Pokémon soundtrack (like Polkamon). --PAK Man 22:12, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
"Don't Say You Love Me" appears to be about Ash and Misty? I never saw the connection... Anyway, just to make sure that we're on the same wave here: Songs that are worthy and have yet to get an article are: Brother my Brother, Catch Me if You Can, If Only Tears Could Bring You Back, Vacation, Lullaby, The Power of One, With All Your Heart, One Heart, One, Comin' to the Rescue... right? Or is any of these wrong? --ElectAbuzzzz 22:22, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, I thought it was about those two. Anyways, if you want me to be honest, I can't help you too much with the songs from movie two, since I never owned the soundtrack and I haven't seen the movie in about six years. But I can definitely tell you that Vacation would work, since that was the Pikachu's Vacation theme. Which one was Lullaby? Catch Me If You Can (was that the one from Pikachu's Vacation that played during the race?) should work, as could If Only Tears Could Bring You Back. Looks okay to me, for the most part. --PAK Man 22:34, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Lullaby is the Jigglypuff one... If I recall correctly, Jigglypuff's voice is even heard in the background. So it qualifies for sure. Great, I'll start working on these tomorrow morning (it's 01:40 am here in Israel, lol...) Thanx a bunch for the help. --ElectAbuzzzz 22:40, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for informing!

I should have thanked you earlier, but I didn't know how to find a User's Talk page, so...
Anyways, thanks for reminding me about using the tags for Pokemon names and moves. I'll be careful from now on. --Rhm2768 07:31, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Re:

haha thanks...I'm so used to typing it without the é. I'll take care of that, and then I'll remove the tag on the article. That ok? Kochdude388 04:32, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

d'oh! You've already done it. Alright, I'll remove the tag, and thanks again. Kochdude388 04:35, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Yet another question of relevance

Hi again :) I've another "is it notable" kinda question: the Anime Pokémon section here is getting bigger and bigger by the day. Many contributers, including you and me, are adding Pokémon characters articles constantly. We have articles for minor Pokémon such as Drew's Butterfree, Paul's Azumarill, Vicious's Scizor, Nero, Orville, Pink Butterfree, Spoink (anime) and others. Some of them appeared in only one episode, or had extremely minor roles. The question is - when is it too much? Which specific Pokémon deserve articles and which don't? For example: many Gym Leaders used one Pokémon prominently, and that Pokémon debuted in the series under their ownership. Common examples are Lt. Surge's Raichu, Erika's Gloom, Sabrina's Kadabra, Blaine's Magmar, Whitney's Miltank and others. These Pokémon had a far more important role in the anime than, say, Orville ar Nero. Another example is Pokémon who were main characters in Pikachu shorts, such as Wynaut in Camp Pikachu or Larvitar in Pikachu's PikaBoo. I'd love to give them each articles of their own, but I just don't know if it's right. What say you? --ElectAbuzzzz 16:27, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

any news? --ElectAbuzzzz 20:18, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Templates

Thanks for the tip about templates! - DrGaellon (talk | contribs) 19:47, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I've created a template specifically for easy use of Pokémon belonging to specific trainers. {{TP|Trainer|Pokémon}} will create a link to [[Trainer's Pokémon|Pokémon]]. I also created a shortcut template to Meowth, because I got tired of typing it over and over: {{MTR}}

I generally prefer to subst: out my templates, especially shortcut templates like these, so the "hidden" code is what appears in the final copy.

My apologies

What page did I leave blank? Venomoth 20:21, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Well...

the thing about that is that if you look at the references on that page...it only says the article about it on wikipedia...the reason for that is that i pretty much copied and pasted from there then deleted what didn't work... so when i actually make a page i'll make sure to do that...my apologies again about that but when i do something like that again ill try to make sure to do that... bill33421

oh yeah

Sorry about that, I was trying something out before I thought to move the code to a sandbox, I guess that's when I left the userbox blank. Won't happen again. =D Venomoth 02:11, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, thanks for letting me know.

I just didn't know such template existed, since Bulbapedia doesn't have many templates Wikipedia has. TheBlazikenMaster 20:35, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I will remember that next time I find a page clearly unnecessary. Oh and by the way is there any place on Bulbapedia where people can discuss removing unneeded articles? (like this page works on Wikipedia?))TheBlazikenMaster 20:48, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I think the place for discussing the merits of the article is the article's talk page. --DarkfireTaimatsu 21:42, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes, the talk page is the appropriate page to discuss any and all changes. --PAK Man Talk 12:47, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Editorial Board Answer and Question

"Any reason you added yourself to the Editorial Board? --PAK Man Talk 19:36, 6 September 2007 (UTC)"

Actually,I had a question about this. Can I put myself my name in the list of the Editorial boards members or this is one more project that I have to ask a permition to join in? Because when I saw this page(http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Bulbapedia:Editorial_board) I thought that was kind of page that "who help,editing pages,in the Bulbapedia".

If I had to ask a permition,I'm sorry.

You know, this article is so bad and irrevlevant that I say it should just be deleted. It amazes me that someone would even bother to create such a useless article.

PAK Man, I wish to have a "cooler" user page. If you could help me on this, I would much appreciate this.

Please give me the info by editing my user talk page PokeNovi22

character pages

I was having a discussion with the user Kenji-girl about how actors spans voicing characters should be noted, and they suggested that I ask to you about it.

According to Kenji-girl, we are using the format of which studio is dubbing to avoid confusion with episode numbers.


Example: Ash is voiced by Veronica Taylor (4Kids dub) and Sarah Natochenny (Pokémon USA/TAJ Productions dub).


My question is what about the characters such as James, Meowth, Nurse Joy, and Officer Jenny that have been played by different actors under the same studio, the episode number format is the way that they are noted.


Example: James is voiced by Ted Lewis (EP002-EP010)

Meowth is voiced by Nathan Price (EP002-EP031)


So would their articles look like this?


Nurse Joy is voiced by Megan Hollingshead (EP002-AG040), Bella Hudson (4Kids dub), and Michelle Knotz (Pokémon USA/TAJ Productions dub)


Switching between the episode number format and studio format within the same article seems a bit sloppy.

I thought that perhaps that is why the episode number format was used, to keep things uniform and as simple as possible.

Thank you for hearing my concerns on this matter. Trainer-c 06:02, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Team Tornado

Well, why don't you tell that other person not to vandilize Team Tornado?! - unsigned comment from Samrulz123 (talkcontribs)

Team Tornado Sam

Look, I'd rather be your friend than your enemy, but I think that I can add whatever I want to this website. I want Team Tornado to be known, and I am not going to do that by paying over $200 a week on my own website. I thought this would be an ideal place to share me and my friend's ideas with other people. Anyway, whats the point of adding articles if they've already got all of the 'real' stuff on here already? Now, if you'll excuse me, i've got to go catch me a Giratina.

PS: And if you think that Ash Ketchum is a good trainer, I would really like to know why?!

Because fanfiction crap does not belong on Bulbapedia. This is an encyclopedia. Encyclopedias are to provide accurate canonical information, of which Team Tornado most certainly is not.
Besides, if we were to include every Pokémon fanfic character, Bulbapedia would be a big mess. --Shiningpikablu252 03:39, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Team Tornado Sam, Zak and Kurt

If I put Team Tornado on A FanFiction site, then everyone would know that it was fake (if you get my meaning).

Even with saying that, Team Tornado is not fake because Team Tornado is Team Tornado.

If I shared with you all the work we put in to Team Tornado over the past year, then I really believe that you'd come to see how awesome it is.

As for that Ash stuff, I just said that because I really think he is a disgrace.

If you absolutely must have your Team Tornado stuff here on Bulbapedia, put it in your user namespace, such as User:Samrulz123/Team Tornado. If it's anywhere else on Bulbapedia, it's considered unencyclopedic bull**** and WILL be edited and/or deleted. --Shiningpikablu252 03:53, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks

Thank you for clearing things up. I see what you mean about the page for Ash's Donphan. Officer Jenny's page has a similar problem. I like your suggestion of using the dub studio and episode numbers, hopefully this new method will eliminate some of the clutter in articles such as those. Trainer-c 05:59, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Team Tornado Sam, Zak and Kurt

OK, fine. I won't put Team Tornado on Bulbapedia, but I really don't know what people would put on Bulbapedia other than that type of stuff. Also, what is an Administrater?

About your "attempt"...

Not bad for a first try, but there were a few faults...

A page such as Slowpoke (TCG) should account for, at the very minimum, every single English-release card out there, not just the ones we have articles for. Additionally, dual-type Pokémon should not be assumed as sticking with just one type in the TCG, as had been listed with Slowpoke being always Psychic--that's disproven by the Water-type Aquapolis Slowpoke. Compare Base Set Poliwrath with Poliwrath. Poliwrath is Water/Fighting in the main series video games. The Base Set card is a Water-type card, while the Neo Discovery card is a Fighting-type card. --Shiningpikablu252 20:36, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Bootleg Games

I noticed that you deleted an article recently about a bootleg game. Well, as an alterintive, why not have an article on Bootleg Games/merchandise in general? I mean, we have articles about fan terms, Pokégods and etc, so why not an article listing fake games and buyer-beware tips? --Manga-in-a-bottle 04:10, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

a: how do you add a comment and do that little denty thing beneath another person's comment and b: how's the inquiry going? --Manga-in-a-bottle 08:47, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Put a colon before the first letter of the comment. More colons = further indented.
So
you
could
really
just
keep
going
across
the
page...
But try to reset the indentation to zero after five or six. It gets really hard to read paragraphs after that. TTEchidna 03:36, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
