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:
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!
Hi. I noticed you have been editing the
User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --電禅Den Zen 19:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry about that. I was unaware that I was making more edits on my page than I was allowed to daily. I've started editing the rest of the wiki, but is it possible if maybe I can edit my page every now and then after I make several edits in the wiki? --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 01:10, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, first of all that was not a challenge and I don't think this is a trivia mentioning that this was the first Pokémon caught of this type. So please cool down. Thank You!!--Viv (talk) 04:05, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
- I'm sorry if I overreacted earlier. I thought that the trivia regarding Dedenne being the first Fairy-type Pokémon owned by a main character was important, and you removed it saying "well then every type's first Pokémon caught should have been mentioned........." Since some other Pokémon owned by main characters were already listed as being their type's first capture, like James's Yamask for Ghost, Brock's Forretress for Steel, Misty's Starmie for Psychic, Ash's Gible for Dragon, and Ash's Scraggy for Dark, I thought you'd only allow Dedenne's Fairy-type trivia if all 18 types had them. I wasn't trying to cause problems here. If I did, I apologize for making such a mess. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 07:52, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Making wide-spread changes
Even though I don't think they're notable, I won't revert your changes to various Trainers' Pokemon articles because I'm not sure the admins will agree with me; but please note that you shouldn't make such wide-spread changes without suggesting it on a talk page and getting feedback first. If these end up getting reverted, that's a waste of the server's effort for no good reason except that you decided "Challenge accepted" was an appropriate response to a user who doesn't have any authority on the matter, either. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 04:07, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
- Those aren't really notable. They were expected anyways. The only reason Dedenne gets to keep its trivia is because of the previous Pokemon that were caught aren't technically Fairy thus validating the trivia point.--ForceFire 04:13, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Hello, can you tell me the exact time frame where Hawlucha gets called out twice? I have re-watched the scenes a couple of times (its Froakie first, followed by Fletching and then Hawlucha), but can't seem to find it. Thanks. Adyniz — Wanna talk? 23:11, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
- Sure. When Ash called out Hawlucha in the beginning with Froakie and Fletchling, they came out of their Poké Balls at 00:35 (00:36 for Hawlucha). After Fletchling appeared, he looked up and Hawlucha came out again at 00:41. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 23:51, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Gym Battle episodes
I believe it depends on the Gym Leader, since some of them are just there, for Ash to challenge them, while others have shown more development or more plot-relevancy other than being an oponent in a battle. The Gym Battle episode against Brock was totally focusing on him, for example. This one was focused a little more on Ash, but just because of him realising he should use his own battle style instead of Tierno's. Everything else was 50/50, in my opinion.
The thing is, who the episode focuses on for a Gym Battle is not a written rule, much less who the title card is focused on, which not always has to do with whom the episode itself is actually focused on. For example, XY038 featured Clemont in the title card, yet the episode is not about him.
Another thing, your claims about Japanese writing are wrong. Ever since the Orange Islands saga, all writings are either latin alphabet or made-up letters. Johto had some runic-like writings, Hoenn had blocky letters, Sinnoh had some blurry, round-ish letters, and since the Best Wishes series, a whole language was made up for the anime. This language is what has been used in every episode since BW001, including Gurkinn's scroll, Clemont's letter for his friends from XY029, etc. PocketMonsters.net even has a whole guide to this language and translates it for every time it's featured. Some times they even put easter eggs when writing this way.
The only instances where Japanese text has ever been used since the Orange Islands are for Profesor Oak's Live Caster in BW128, and now in XY044. The former wasn't edited out for the English dub, so I'm eager about them keeping this one as well... --Gabo 2oo (talk) 16:17, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for catching that. I am working on a template and have put the STAB indicator on all physical and special moves in the template, so that's where the STAB addition came from: I had copied directly from the template and forgot to remove it. When I go to complete some TM lists with all the contest data I will have to be careful with that, but will be using Find/Replace in Notepad for prep starting from the full list every time (going to post the template in my userspace soon) so it should be easy to cut out or edit (for italics) the formatting if I am careful reading the moves on each one. I'll have to do extra research on HM06 and HM07 and appropriately tag matching TMs there, as well. CycloneGU (talk) 21:28, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
I would argue it does change games in this generation. It cannot be learned as either a TM or HM in X/Y. There is no way for those Kalos specimens to learn Dive until being imported to OR/AS. And therefore the ORAS tag on Dive, I feel, is not only perfectly acceptable, but mandatory. CycloneGU (talk) 00:58, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
- Ok. I understand your point of view. The reason why I removed it is because this same situation happened in the Gen III games where Dive was present in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald but not in FireRed and LeafGreen. All of the Pokémon who could learn Dive via HM in Gen III did not have Dive labeled with RSE because HM08 was not available in FireRed and LeafGreen. That's why I removed the ORAS tag on Skrelp and Dragalge's pages. If HM07 needs to have the ORAS tag in Gen VI movelists, then I feel like all of the Pokémon who could learn Dive in Gen III need to have RSE added next to HM08 in their movelists as well. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 01:56, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks for the explanation, and I can understand your reason for removing it. I actually am of the opinion that Dive should be labeled for R/S/E, myself, since it isn't possible to even acquire it in FR/LG. I never would have even thought about that had you not mentioned it because I wasn't editing here then and didn't think anything of it. As present, it suggests that it's possible for the entire generation, then it gives the false assumption that Pokémon can learn it in FR/LG. This is complicated at Dive where Gen. III is split in two columns, with no Emerald marker (the second half being FR/LG); notice I have not fully done Gen. VI versions yet because there is no split for it, and it's being held for now because Kogoro's working on a new format that you can find linked on her talk page where I asked about the page.
- I'll leave it for now, but yeah...I don't want to give people the assumption that they can learn Dive in X/Y. Sure, they can be traded over, taught the move, and - provided there's no problem like that of Precipice Blades and company with the Kalos learners - returned (to then be fed a bunch of EV reducing berries that would affect a 0 EV stat to regain maximum friendship if that's desired), but no tag suggests that step is not necessary. So we should visit that option. Thanks again for the clarification. =) CycloneGU (talk) 02:22, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
- You're welcome. Good night. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 03:01, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
