Location Link

I have a couple of extra questions about the location and HeartGold and SoulSilver link color on the templates. You said that you were trying to get all the locations and Game names colored black. I can happily help, you just said you did not want them on the trainer class. Would the trainer class be the ones in the table? I could start doing it for the gym leaders as we go along. Maybe there is an easier way to do this if we play around with the template for gym leaders and such to get it to go to black... –MasterKenobi 16:05, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes. The trainer class on the table is the one I haven't been touching. They're being kept like


Instead of



Any help would be great, because I'll be busy this whole week because of homecoming prep and stuff, so I probably won't be on much. As for playing around with the templates, I don't think that there would be an easier way to make the links black without adding the color templates inside the links. The only thing I can think of is using only three 0s instead of six, but I really only use six because that's the number of digits for the coding of every color BUT black. It doesn't matter which one you use. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:12, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Actually, you can use a 3-digit code for any hex color, provided each pair of digits is identical. 428=442288; abc=aabbcc; etc. —darklordtrom 06:58, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Happy Birthday

^_^. Drake Clawfang 22:50, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. x) R.A. Hunter Blade 15:27, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Instead of reverting, how about rewriting all the sections to make them more prose-like. I'm doing Jasmine now so if you want an example wait for a bit. —darklordtrom 00:45, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

I reverted them earlier because I thought that we already had this stuff on there. And yeah, I'm redoing them now too... Happy Birthday btw. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:50, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry

Sorry. First I think it was deleted because Wikipedia-style linking/referencing. Well, I will change sentences to encyclopedia next time. There are the National Testing for enter the University In my country Today. Please keep it for me to editing soon. ^ ^

PS. Sorry for my Bad English. My country doesn't use English as native language.^^ --Nechigawara-Talking 00:46, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry... I've been kinda high-strung lately. I didn't mean to come across as harsh. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:48, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

The versions I reverted to were better-written. Ketsuban 04:32, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

The versions you reverted to were the ones that I did, but they needed to be longer, like on Jasmine's page. And that's why I reverted what I did. So that they could stay long, but be fixed up a bit. -___- R.A. Hunter Blade 18:30, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
But yeah, really only the ones like Blaine that don't have any info on where to get the PokéGear number should be like I had them. I see what you did for those, but the ones that have the PokéGear info need to be longer. R.A. Hunter Blade 18:32, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

GSC Executives

Did you ever play GSC and HGSS. If you didn't, don't say crap. We had an entire thread on Bulbagarden about it and TTE even approved my edit, agreed with it (you can see in one of his talkpages). You edited the articles just because the Rocket Executive article told that there were two Executives in GSC? NEVER.USE.OTHER.BULBAPEDIA.ARTICLE.AS.A.SOURCE. I think it should be an official policy. When Bulbapedia becomes the source for itself, it begins to be filled with bullshit. I would understand you if you said that about Lance. His case is a bit strange. But Athena and Apollo obviously ARE the same characters as in GSC. Since when does having name make anyone a different character? That would work if they had different names in GSC. But they were simply unnamed. Really, not every addition in HGSS must be a retcon. It may simply be an explanation. --Maxim 13:33, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Can you please come back not all angry as usual and when you can be sensible? I never saw that thread. I didn't know anything about your conversation with TTE. Why would I? This is the first time I've been able to be on the computer for more than 20 minutes or so a day for the past week and a half. Don't assume everybody knows everything. Why? Because we don't all pay attention to every little thing said or done. And what you said in your edit summaries shows just how mature you are. I never said I knew anything. I also said "FOR NOW" and "UNTIL THIS GETS WORKED OUT". Did you see that? Yeah. Did you bother trying to be nice about it? Nope. R.A. Hunter Blade 04:53, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Weighing in, as asked by RAHB.
By looking at the in-game teams and a bunch of other factors, it would appear that the characters are one and the same. The key difference is the unique sprites and names. While RAHB was technically incorrect, Maxim you did not handle the situation ideally. There was no need for this to blow out of proportion as it did. Instead of putting Did you ever play GSC and HGSS. If you didn't, don't say crap. on his talk page, it would have been more prudent to link to the discussions so he could see the facts for himself. Not every user lives on the forums, and as previously noted on RAHB's userpage he had been without the internet for a substantial period so he was not able to see this [not that I expect you to have gone through the page history to learn this]. I don't recall any other site having this information so it couldn't be seen elsewhere. Once you'd alerted him politely to his error, you could have then reverted calmly without allegations of Stop editing articles based on your ignorance. and This only makes you look stupid..
RAHB acted in what he thought was the best manner. It turns out that it wasn't. Perhaps a talkpage discussion about this would have been a good start before he edited, but it didn't happen that way. Maxim's handling of the situation didn't help. So in future RAHB, you need to take residence on the BMG forums if you do not already. A lot of discussions re: pedia happen there. And Maxim, you need to cool that temper of yours and not explode at whim. I realise that the Rocket thing is a hot topic atm, but there is a Code of Conduct here that we've all got to adhere to. If you've got any questions about this feel free to see me. Now, kiss and make up.... before I make the server crash again... ;) —darklordtrom 01:58, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
When I was on, it was while the server was screwed up. I could only get to the main thread page on the forums. Any other page, and it was unable to load and gave me an error. Otherwise I could have seen the conversation with TTE or at least asked him. I tried for a minute or two before going to your talk page. R.A. Hunter Blade 05:20, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Okie. I'm sorry. I just though that my reasons were okay enough to make the issue more clear. Maybe if I didn't forget to edit Rocket Executive page back then, it wouldn't happen. --Maxim 11:30, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

About the Legendary Beast page.

I'm sure that this one's a trivia, much good for a speculation and it's true but may i know the reason behind your revert? i just wanna know why that's all.."AngelGuardian" 18:59, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

You said that the capes represent the "clouds" that they're associated with... Entei doesn't have a cloud that it's associated with. I know what you mean by how smoke and fire interact, but... it's just poorly worded for what you're trying to say. As for Suicune though, what cloud would it be associated with? I can really only see Raikou and a thundercloud and Entei and the smoke of a fire, which really isn't a cloud. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:26, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh is that what you meant.. i was on a rush and i thought its a good idea and i did'nt review my work so again sorry.. "AngelGuardian" 10:28, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

It's fine. Don't worry about it. R.A. Hunter Blade 17:28, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Spearow

I actually meant that "Habitak" sounds alot like "Habitat", and is an allusion to Spearow's obbession with its biotope (the fact that it heavily defends it, not that it attacks it). But it isn't that important either, so if it doesn't belong there, then never mind. - Edofenrir 07:56, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Alright. I see that. But Habitak is the German name, while habitat is an English word. That's really where I was coming from. It's more of a coincidence than anything, because foreign translations tend not to allude to the English games, or English itself. R.A. Hunter Blade 13:47, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh. Well, I am a native german-speaker, and I can confirm that the word "Habitat" exists in German too. - Edofenrir 09:04, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
I figured as much. But, isn't "lebensraum" habitat in German? Like I said, non-English games don't really relate that much to the English translations, just like English translations don't relate that much to the Japanese. And even then, the Japanese sometimes has humor that only works in their language, and has to be translated out. Not as much in the games as in the anime and manga, but oh well. R.A. Hunter Blade 13:43, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
"Lebensraum" is a synonyme for the word "Habitat". German is rich with synonymes for all kinds of nomen. I give you my word. "Habitat" exists in German language, and it has a similar meaning to its English counterpart. But I don't want to be brash about this. If it is too minor to include on that page, then it can stay out. - Edofenrir 22:50, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Just making sure. And actually, if "habitat" exists in German, then by all means add it back. I was just a little confused, because I only know a little bit of German. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:18, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Help requested

When I asked about the Wonder Mail, you said "Ask on the forums. There's a section for that." Might I ask you for a link to said section? I'm a noob to the forums. Distortion Alpha - Please don't hurt us... 19:09, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... I seem to be wrong. I can't find a recent specific section for things about that, so try asking here. It seems to be replied to on a somewhat regular basis. R.A. Hunter Blade 23:42, 14 February 2010 (UTC)


Sorry

I've received the warning. I'm sorry because apparently my sister had hacked into my account and was messing up my info. I had to edit it to revert everything.

Eon-flamewing 03:36, 11 March 2010 (UTC)Eon-flamewing

Try changing your password then, or even saving everything to a Word document so that you can just copy and paste it back in if it gets messed up. R.A. Hunter Blade 03:42, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I'll take note! Thanks for the advice!

By the way, can you help me fix my HeartGold page? I couldn't revert it to its normal appearance (Victreebel and Lapras's entries are messed up).

--Eon-flamewing 03:45, 11 March 2010 (UTC)Eon-flamewing

How so? R.A. Hunter Blade 03:54, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Fix'd. ht14 04:17, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
I noticed. Thanks. I've been out of wack for the past few days, so I couldn't see that, even though it should have been obvious. ^^; R.A. Hunter Blade 04:19, 11 March 2010 (UTC)


Pidgeot Trivia

I feel compelled to re-submit my entry about Pidgeot's tail feather coloring which you removed. Mainly because the only reason you gave was that it was "Not really that important." I find it hard to believe that you would seriously find an obvious, triple coloring issue less important than the fact that "Two different pronunciations for Pidgeot's name, Pidg-ee-ot and Pi-git, have been used interchangeably in the anime.", or that "When rebattling Gym Leaders in HeartGold and SoulSilver, both Falkner and Blue have a Pidgeot as their highest leveled Pokémon." or most importantly "In Mewtwo Strikes Back, Corey's Pidgeot is incorrectly referred to as a Pidgeotto." Also, looking at various unremoved trivia entries like "The long curled hair on Politoed's head is blue in the anime and stock art, but black in the games." or "Bulbasaur's body has been seen to be composed of different colors; with an all green body in the Generation II games and a head with a more bluish hue in later generations.", I do not understand why you decided to remove my entry (at least not without removing these too). Will you try and give me a reason why I should not re-submit my entry? - User Talk:Nechifor 11 March 2010

Color limitations.--ForceFire 09:45, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Are you refering to how the older sprites have color limitations? In that case I suggest that you read my now deleted entry or the question I asked in Pidgeot's discussion page approximately one month prior to my submission; the color differences are found in RG artwork, FRLG artwork and the anime. How are color limitations relevant? - User Talk:Nechifor 11 March 2010

Seeing that you've had enough active time to reply, I've re-submitted it. You really shouldn't delete entries and then ignore an invitation to dialogue. Looking forward to contribute without having you removing my edits without reason or dialogue. - User Talk:Nechifor 12 March 2010

I just removed it after you added it again, but now I've read this and have re-added it. I thought you meant sprites and not the actual art by Ken Sugimori. Virtual-Z 05:38, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I hear some sass coming my way. Normally only get that at school.
As for why I didn't respond, I expected you to re-add it right away, like most people would. I figured that after I deleted it, and you came here and explained yourself, that I had read it wrong and shouldn't try arguing my point. It's more of a habit to take off anything refering to sprites, since we get so much of it, so sorry for that. R.A. Hunter Blade 13:30, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

You should come here more often

You should also not be sarcastic to the point of flaming. Comes off a bit rude, which is uncharacteristic of you :( —darklordtrom 22:15, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I know I should really start doing things again, but I haven't really had the time or motivation. I'll probably start getting back into this as soon as school slows down a little. And yeah... it was uncalled for on Jigglypuff's talk page, but I had a crap day and came home to that. I'll be more careful next time. R.A. Hunter Blade 22:34, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Don't take that word seriously. "I'll let you two have your argument in peace" seemed less appropriate. R.A. Hunter Blade 18:06, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
dont worry, i know what you meant. -- MAGNEDETH 18:11, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that I must have misread the trivia on the Giga Impact page.

For some reason I didn't notice that that trivia said "by leveling up.". Yeah it is dumb that I misread that. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 22:30, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Conquest

I've gotten the game and am wondering if there's any work that needs to be done anywhere concerning it if I wanted to contribute. Drake Clawfang (talk) 20:39, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

I'm not exactly sure what the page still needs. If you can find something though, but aren't sure about it, ask on the talk page. I actually don't own this game, so I probably wouldn't be able to tell you what needs fixing or adding. R.A. Hunter Blade 05:25, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
So far all I've seen is that List of Pokémon Conquest characters is missing stat tables, but I'm not sure if character stats change, so stats I may have to add I can't confirm are accurate. Drake Clawfang (talk) 05:50, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
The only thing I could find was fixing the redlink for Kingdoms, since nobody made a page about that, but redirecting it to Ransei's page should be good enough. I'm not sure what to do about "Link", since that page was apparently bad enough to be deleted. R.A. Hunter Blade 07:56, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
We desperately need a link page. If you can write one, that would be great. --SnorlaxMonster 08:08, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I'll whip up a sandbox later today and let you take a look. Drake Clawfang (talk) 11:57, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

It's dry facts at the moment. GameFAQs has very little to offer on in-depth mechanics, which are needed because there's a lot more to what effects link than just type specialty - Oichi for example specializes with Normal-types but she can link very highly with Dragons, and that's just one of countless examples I've found. If anyone wants to spruce it up to fit the preferred style guidelines, please do. It's not as much as should be had, but it's what I can do. Drake Clawfang (talk) 21:06, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Either way Conquest's advanced gameplay mechanics aren't explained very well, only the basics are, so the whole category needs work... the whole Conquest page only mentions Transformation once in passing too, and there's no explanation for it at all. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:27, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Something that's come to mind, the move pages don't have any info for Conquest on them. I could add info to the pages on each move including who uses it, what its effects are, its power, and an image showing its area of effect. The only catch is the images would have to be home made, I can make them look simple and clear, but they would be homemade. Otherwise it would be fairly simple to do, if someone could code up an appropriate template to display the information. Drake Clawfang (talk) 03:06, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Also, a lot simpler, I can grab images of the various map features like the caves, shops, etc. The official ones. Drake Clawfang (talk) 03:13, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

That might work. I'm extremely rusty on template coding, so I probably won't be much help for that. But if something's at least set up as a draft/example of some sort in a Sandbox, we could go from there. R.A. Hunter Blade 23:32, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Well I have no clue at all how the templates here work with how complex they are. Force Fire mentioned talking to other Admins about integrating the Conquest description into the overall move template, so I'm unsure how the staff would prefer it handled. If the conquest moves get their own template, I can whip up a visual idea of what I think would work on another wiki and link it for you to see. Drake Clawfang (talk) 01:47, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Sure. Once we get a good idea of what we want, we can pitch the idea. R.A. Hunter Blade 06:06, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
Force Fire came up with a stand-alone template in his Sandbox, and I provided pics showing the various combinations of grid images that would be needed if the grid was directly part of the template and not an image encoded in it. Haven't heard much from him since the other day about it, though. You can check his talk page to see what we had going, if you like. Drake Clawfang (talk) 06:23, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
Oh nice, that looks great. Easy to work with too if we can get the grid sized right, unless that's intentional. R.A. Hunter Blade 07:17, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm unsure, he seemed to be having trouble figuring out the coding for it. The only thing I would suggest and that I said to him is that rather than have to light up each square the appropriate color for each attack, the combinations could be pre-coded into the template so like, "pattern=14" automatically colors the grid the right way. The template would be more complex but the coding to use it would be simpler. Drake Clawfang (talk) 07:38, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

How many moves are there in Conquest, or is it just one move per Type? R.A. Hunter Blade 21:37, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm unsure how many there are, but it's definitely not one for each Type. What gets reused is the grid formations for what the attack hits - like, Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Flamethrower, Psybeam, Dragon Pulse, and likely a couple I'm forgetting, hit in a three-square forward pattern. Very few moves use unique hitboxes, like Aura Sphere, Volt Switch, and and Brave Bird. Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:27, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Alright. So either way, it looks like this might take some time to put together. And... if Psypoke's Conquest move list is right, there are 123 moves if I didn't miss one. R.A. Hunter Blade 16:06, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Ash's Unfezant gender trivia

I added it because I noticed that out of the three Pokémon that Ash has that were confirmed as female (Bayleef, Unfezant, and Snivy), Unfezant is the only one of the three that is not a Grass-type. Also, if one was to included Aipom as one of Ash's Pokémon (due to her being initially a part of Ash's team), then Unfezant's distinction from the other three would be that she is the only one that is dual-typed and a Flying-type. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 13:32, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

I understand that, but because at the moment he only has three female Pokémon in his possession, it isn't notable enough to warrant a trivia point. That would be like pointing out that Gardenia's Roserade is special because it is the only Pokémon on her team that is dual-typed. Or that her Turtwig is the only male on her team of three during the gym battles. You can see that just by actually reading the page. Yes, in Ash's case you'd have to look at a couple different pages, but it's the same concept. Trivia's great sometimes, but don't feel like you need to go through every article trying to find small things like that to add. Some trivia is just too trivial. R.A. Hunter Blade 18:19, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
