Linking to categories

You can link to Categories without putting the page into the category by putting a colon before "Category". Example: [[:Category:______]] And just so it's up there, you can also link to files by using [[:a:File:____.___]] Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:53, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I should have know that before I linked it, but did not. I will admit that I did find it on Wikicode#Linking, but at that time I had already made my second edit in a row. (I follow a rule of two so that I do not get an edit warning, unless an edit has somehow badly broken something.) In any case, thank you for letting me know about that since it will help me to remember in the future. (Off topic) Sorry if I am butting into your talk with Mikoro. I wanted to let them know that they can find articles that need to be improved instead of complaining about the loss of userspace privileges since I think that they can improve. One other thing I wanted to ask you was why is Mikoro's timestamp off by a few hours? It is listed as UTC time, but is EST instead. Could you look into it? In any case, thank you for reading this. --Super goku (talk) 03:58, 21 October 2012 (UTC)


Super goku, I have looked at the list you sent me on my talk page and I have fixed Exploud and Clear!'s synopsis. For future edits I make, I will notify you. Are you an administrator? Do you have rights to reinstate someone's userspace rights? Mikoro 9:49, 23 October 12 (UTC)

Hello, Mikoro. I would like to say that you do not need to notify me of any changes that you make since if I wanted to look I could just use Special:Contributions/Mikoro. If you would like to you can do it to me or anyone else on the wiki by placing the name of the user in the url. In addition, the recent changes page will list a link to it it between the link to the user's talk page and the edit summary of a user who makes an edit.* As for the second question, I will say that I am not an administrator or any position on the staff. If you would like to find out who is on staff, then I would suggest you head to the Staff page. Several pages on the Navigation bar to the left include a link to the staff page if you would like to find it later. To be a bit informal, I would like to point out that the only page I have on the Userspace is a personal sandbox. Otherwise, I have nothing in the userspace which is why the username in my signature is red. In my opinion, the only purpose for the userspace is for people to post some infomation on themselves and to improve articles. However, that is not the only use and other users will have differing opinions as to the Userspace. So then, let me ask you a question or two that you can choose to answer or not. What is it that you want to create on the Userspace and why do you want to do so? I am a curious person and would like to understand your reasons. --Super goku (talk) 00:47, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
I want to create my userpage plus a ton of other pages that will be linked on my userpage. I want to do this because I have just experienced all the other awesome pages that people have, and I want one. But because someone had to block my creating rights, I will not be able to do so until I prove myself "worthy of being a professional Bulbapedia contributor". And did you look at the new synopsis for Exploud and Clear!? Mikoro 9:00, 24 October 12 (UTC)
To start with I have seen the synopsis for AG066. I will say that it did look nice. Besides the two edits I would say that the only issues were minor such as links and a bit of grammar. (Note: You can edit the whole article by clicking on the edit button at the top of a page.) As for your userspace issue I would like you direct you to both the Bulbapedia {{bp|Policy} and especially the Userspace policy since those are the most important for your situtation. I would suggest reading those and editing the mainspace more than the talkspace. If you would like to I would suggest maybe looking at this page since most of the pages list there have an incomplete synopsis. Hopefully, this will help you out. --Super goku (talk) 19:04, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Flinching Debocle

Hey. I'm not really sure how editting the coloumns works, but at the moment there is false information up there regarding Gen V. I know you wanted to hold off removing it completely because a portion of it also had to do with Gen 4, which there is no research on. Could you at least remove all mention of Gen V regarding the 1 - (1-p) * 0.1 thing from that page. So that readers aren't misconstrued into believing something that isn't true. - unsigned comment from V4Victini (talkcontribs)

Oh, I understand now. I have edited the page to go along with Generation V and the previous Generations. Granted, it might end up reverted by another user. Thank you for the message.  :) --Super goku (talk) 22:01, 3 November 2012 (UTC)


The difference between Barry's Empoleon and Red's Pikachu is that Red has a Pikachu regardless of all things. Barry only has an Empoleon if you chose Chimchar. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:03, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see. That is a very good point. Mostly, I was reverting the edit since that section seemed to be acceptable because it wasn't removed for several months and there have been similar sections on other pages. Thank you for the message.  :) --Super goku (talk) 02:23, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Island

Look at what I've changed. Not only have I removed the now redundant roundy code, I have removed a useless colspan="1" and readded the "| colspan="7" style="background:#F08030; border-bottom-left-radius: 10px; -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 10px; -webkit-border-bottom-left-radius: 10px; -khtml-border-bottom-left-radius: 10px; -icab-border-bottom-left-radius: 10px; -o-border-bottom-left-radius: 10px; border-bottom-right-radius: 10px; -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 10px; -webkit-border-bottom-right-radius: 10px; -khtml-border-bottom-right-radius: 10px; -icab-border-bottom-right-radius: 10px; -o-border-bottom-right-radius: 10px;" |" at the bottom because it was broken. Please try and fix these too. --Abcboy (talk) 05:15, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

I think I was planning on mentioning how the tables seem different on one of the edit summaries, but I ended up having to do something else offline and never mentioned it. If any tables are left I will see if I can get them. In any case, thank you for sending me the message.  :) --Super goku (talk) 06:22, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
I looked over your edits a bit and I noticed at least one thing that I feel should be different. At the bottom you have the code call for a new row to contain the roundy bottom line among other things. ( |- | colspan="7" style="background:#{{Fire color}}; {{roundybottom}}" | |} ) That extra row causes an line to be drawn with nothing in it between the border of the table and the other rows. To clarify, please look at this to see my modifications and compare them to yours. In addition, I did edit a few of the roundy tags to reduce the white space between the border of the table and the content. --Super goku (talk) 07:19, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
That code's only job is to draw a blank line. If you remove the coding "|- | colspan="7" style="background:#{{Fire color}}; {{roundybottom}}" | |}" then I wouldn't worry about it. But instead, you left it as row formatting with no cells. Entirely removing it would have been the best option. --Abcboy (talk) 12:47, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, I cannot remove the "|}" since that is where the table cuts off at.  :) Joking aside, why would the table need to draw that blank line. There is none above the contents of the table and it makes rounding the bottom of the contents a bit pointless, in my opinion. --Super goku (talk) 21:19, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that the coding was left behind, while the cell start was removed. It's sort of like making a blank table. Seemingly, you've fixed all of them already. --Abcboy (talk) 21:56, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I think I understand now. Sorry about that. ^.^' I think that the only thing left to do is to look over a few of the tables like the Pokémon Island Cave since a few seem to have issues in the columns. I might look at that in the next few days, but I thought that I would mention it to you right now. --Super goku (talk) 22:00, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Event table incomplete template

Please stop adding the incomplete template to the Pokémon pages, because of the broken event tables. They are being fixed slowly, but there is hundreds that need fixed since the template was updated causing them to break. Lady Ariel 22:40, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I see. The reason I was tagging them was so that someone with enough time and knowledge could fix them with ease. I had known that the template had been updated, but I felt that those Pokémon were important enough to be tag due to being actively included in the Event Pokémon template. Sorry for any issues that were caused by my edits. --Super goku (talk) 22:50, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

S vs Z shape

I seemed to hit the character limit for my edit summary on Route 204 and felt it might be a bit confusing. An S shape is something that has two distinct reversals of direction; that is, whatever it is will travel in a direction, then come to a point where it turns to go in the opposite direction, then turns again to continue on in the original direction. A Z shape is something that turns away from its direction, then returns to its original direction but doesn't go in the complete opposite direction in the process. Glik (talk) 19:37, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

I would like to note that the reason I made that change is because a:File:Sinnoh Route 204 Pt.png shows a path that is not shaped like an S, but more like a Z. Would it be alright with you if I called is a backward or flipped S shaped path? --Super goku (talk) 20:12, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
Even backwards it's still an S shape. There's really no difference if you say reverse, so go ahead. And now that I look at it, "signature" isn't quite right there. The Route's not especially known for it, more for the cave that requires Rock Smash. Glik (talk) 23:11, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

File links

Files need to be linked by means of linking straight to the archives or else they appear on the wanted pages. This means [[a:File:name.png]] instead of [[:File:name.png]]. Just so you know. MaverickNate 18:16, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Sushi High Roller

Unless I'm missing something here, PokémonDollar.png250,000 from the Big Nuggets + PokémonDollar.png4,680*4 from the Furisode Girls + PokémonDollar.png10,400 from the Owner is never going to be more than the PokémonDollar.png500,000 entry cost. -- EnosShayremtalk 00:45, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

This was discussed on the talk page for Lumiose City, but I can explain it again since more discussion is always better. Basically you will need, Prize Money Power Level 3, either the Luck Incense or the Amulet Coin, and the move Happy Hour. Also, you should have enough style in the city to reduce the entry fee to PokémonDollar.png450,000 for better results. -PokémonDollar.png450,000 (entrance cost) + PokémonDollar.png56,160 (PokémonDollar.png9,360 is assumed to be the amount with the Amulet Coin, *3 with PMP 3, *2 with Happy Hour) + PokémonDollar.png56,160 + PokémonDollar.png56,160 + PokémonDollar.png56,160 + PokémonDollar.png124,800 (PokémonDollar.png20,800 is assumed to be the amount with the Amulet Coin, *3 with PMP 3, *2 with Happy Hour) + PokémonDollar.png250,000 (PokémonDollar.png250,000 is the normal sell value of 25 Big Nuggets.) That means the balance should become a net gain of PokémonDollar.png149,440. Let me know if you spot any mistakes. --Super goku (talk) 00:56, 14 January 2014 (UTC)


Last year you noted that Blizzard had different accuracy between games and regions in Generation I. I know that the chance of freeze differs, and have seen it discussed plenty of times, but I cannot find any other source discussing the accuracy changing. Do you have evidence of this? Your claim that Blizzard has only 70% accuracy in international RB contradicts iiMarckus's dump. --SnorlaxMonster 16:27, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the lack of a reply, SnorlaxMonster. I dropped back into inactivity since my 3DS is in repairs. To get to the problem, I can recall the edit, but not the full reason I did it. Looking back on my contributions, I did do an edit to the Blizzard page around the same time. You did note that chance of freezing does differ. Looking in that line, the Blizzard page both at the time and in the present does note that "[...] the Japanese versions of the Generation I main series games, Blizzard had a 30% chance of freezing. The chance was lowered to 10% for Pokémon Yellow's Colosseum 2, the Pokémon Stadium games, and all international Generation I games." It looks like I took two different meanings, the accuracy and the chance of freezing, and somehow jumbled them up, especially with the TT template on the article noting that Yellow varies in a similar way to the chance of freezing issue.
With that being noted, should the chance of a Status ailment be included on the article? I think that with the chance being modified, it is also modifying the attack at the same time. --Super goku (talk) 01:03, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I suppose strict things like the chance of inflicting a status condition could be included. --SnorlaxMonster 08:06, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Miiverse Screenshots

(No need to give G50 message alerts for an unrelated sub-topic) So I followed your instructions with the screenshot method, but I ran into an issue. Where you said there should be a "picture with a icon of a plus sign in the corner", I am instead seeing an X, and when clicking on that button, I am getting a message saying "This screenshot cannot be attached." Apparently there are some games that can't have screenshots posted to the Miiverse, but I'm not sure if this is one of them. Have you by chance ever done this with GTI, or other games? I don't even give a Schif (TalkContribs) 18:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Huh, I have not seen that before. I have done this with 1001 Spikes, but not with PMD. As a question, can you post a screenshot while in a Dungeon by chance? --Super goku (talk) 04:11, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Tried in a dungeon, and in Paradise while in and out of dialogue. Even tried in a Magnagate dungeon. No dice. Even looking on the GTI boards on the miiverse site I don't see any screenshots, so I really don't know how some people got them. I don't even give a Schif (TalkContribs) 15:47, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
I guess a capture card would be required, but that would cost money. Still, thank you for trying. It does seem that Miiverse screenshots are locked down in GTI for some reason. --Super goku (talk) 08:04, 26 August 2014 (UTC)


You just created like, 10 pages that were redirected to 2009 World Championships Weavile. Are so many redirects really necessary? →PikaTepig999 04:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

They were Double Redirects. I just left the Summary empty since I did not think that anyone would be confused. --Super goku (talk) 08:00, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I see. My bad, then. Sorry for bothering you. →PikaTepig999 09:12, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
