Some notes

Numbers below ten are always written long form. Also, please preview your pages before saving them. you have "Pokémon with Quick Feet" on the Harvest page. Just, try to catch all your mistakes before you save. MaverickNate 17:04, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Sorry about that, and thanks for letting me know. Pikiwyn 17:07, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Lightningrod and Storm Drain

chould you prof hat this abilities in gen 5 absorb the damage like seribii says? --Hanmac 09:22, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it was tested here [1], and Smogon is a reliable source. Pikiwyn 09:34, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
so the Type effectiveness template must be updated, same as Shimama, it has elec immun from 2 abilities --Hanmac 09:44, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I'm not sure how to add that though. Pikiwyn 09:47, 30 September 2010 (UTC)


It is requested that you stop adding information about abilities. It is quite obvious that you are just copying from other sites, and Bulbapedia has yet to standardize the ability names like we have with moves. due to this, people will have to go back and correct all of your edits, so you might as well not do them in the first place. We are not yet prepared to do abilities, and you really need to stop. MaverickNate 16:31, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean adding Dream World abilities to Pokémon pages, or making new pages on abilities and adding generation V Pokémon to old ones? Pikiwyn 16:34, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Both MaverickNate 16:35, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Number redirects

Instead of copying them from one page, which will obviously result in a lot of small mistakes like this, you can use the {{BASEPAGENAME}} code. It will automatically recrd the page name, that is the number. For example, in this page, that template will automatically produce "Pikiwyn". Thanks.--Sher-e-Bengal- 13:00, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the help! Pikiwyn 13:02, 8 October 2010 (UTC)


As per the Signature policy, text in signatures should be no bigger than standard text to avoid stretching the lines. please remove the <big> tags from your signature. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 21:59, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Removed. Pikiwyn talk 22:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Generation V breeding tables

Hi. You may not be aware of this, but we're currently in the process of removing the line breaks from the breeding tables to prevent them from taking up too much vertical space. The tables you altered were intended to be that way. Bikini Miltank 15:23, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

No I wasn't aware, sorry about that. Pikiwyn talk 10:26, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

why are you changing them all to null? -- MAGNEDETH 21:40, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

He's changing move tutor tables, not breeding tables.--でんのう Zえんし 21:44, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, In Black and White the only Pokémon capable of being tutored moves are the starters, Meloetta and Dragon types. Pikiwyn talk 21:45, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
youre right, i was looking at the wrong section. -- MAGNEDETH 21:49, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Moving files

To request a file move, use the {{move}} on Bulbagarden Archives. Don't request it here on Bulbapedia because that can get... messy. —darklordtrom 23:31, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I'll do that next time, also in Generation V trapping moves were changed to last 4-5 turns, so should Category:Moves that trap for 2-5 turns be moved too?
I commented about that on the talk page for the category. —darklordtrom 10:08, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Do you mean here? Because I only see my comment. Pikiwyn talk 10:15, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
It's the thought that counts, right? —darklordtrom 10:28, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Haha yea, SnorlaxMonster got to it. Pikiwyn talk 10:32, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Christmas contest~

Only one entry is allowed at once. Make your choice between Move variations and the kilogram page. I highly suggest the first one, because the kilogram page is slowly getting merged with List of Pokémon by weight, which is already taken. MaverickNate 19:17, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Ok I'll do that, sorry. Pikiwyn talk 19:20, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
It's fine. The contest just came out, so we don't expect everyone to know all the rules instantly. Don't worry about it. Just finish your first edit before picking another, or remove it from the variation page in order tog o to another page. MaverickNate 19:24, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! Pikiwyn talk 19:28, 5 December 2010 (UTC)


My sig works!!! Thanks so much!!! :} Pokabu82 20:10, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

No problem :) and if you need help with anything else I'll be happy to help. Pikiwyn talk 20:13, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Do you play Pokemon Ranger? Pokabu82 20:45, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

No I only play the main series games. Pikiwyn talk 12:24, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

I want this!

I want to learn how to make this awesome page of yours so I can have like your page. KingOfMissingno 20:16, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Do you mean my talk page or my user page? Pikiwyn talk 20:21, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Both! KingOfMissingno 20:29, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
For my talk page you can just copy and paste everything above the welcome message to your talk page, and if you want to change the color of the anything then replace for example {{flying color light}} or 000000 with {{water color}} or any other type. A user page though is something that makes each user individual, so I don't want too much of it copied, but if there's certain small parts of it that you want then that's okay, what would you like from my user page? Pikiwyn talk 20:41, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Dont worry about losing your page. I just want to try it out then edit it to make my individualality visible. KingOfMissingno 20:46, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok that's fine that's how I started out too, enjoy! Pikiwyn talk 20:49, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Well I'll have to wait until tomorrow. I already did my max daily edits. I already broke one rule this week do I'm not breaking another.

KingOfMissingno 00:13, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Yay! The server considers it tomorrow I can edit my wall now!--KingOfMissingno 04:07, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

I sent you an email

And as far as I know, you haven't seen it yet. Please check your inbox and/or spam folders, and follow up with this. Thanks. —darklordtrom 20:39, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Will do, thanks. Pikiwyn talk 13:25, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Your removals of my edits

Just to let you know, I brought up your removals of my edits on the forums [2] while editing was locked. I look forward to a response from you. --Poppy :3 01:41, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

That Template

You might want to get rid of the Arcanine section of the Signature Moves page you made. Just because a Dratini can be won with the move in Crystal. DrBrock 13:37, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Whether a move is a signature moves only depends on the Pokémon that can learn it through leveling up, so technically ExtremeSpeed was Arcanine's signature move in Gen II. But thanks for pointing it out, it's nice to see people are noticing the template. Pikiwyn talk 13:52, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the message

Thanks man for the message, I'm glad to be a memeber!


No problem, let me know if you need help with something, you can sign your posts by adding ~~~~ at the end. Enjoy editing! Pikiwyn talk 14:57, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
