Hey, I noticed you're adding the availability template to Pokémon pages. Just a bit of advice: follow the style used in other pages; if it's a Pokémon exclusive to one version of a pair, you don't need to put "Trade" for the other version of the pair, just put in "(version it's in only)". And don't forget, there are three Victory Roads. Specify (Kanto), (Hoenn), or (Sinnoh), please. (see below)

This is the way the template should be laid out.

And really, don't rip the descriptions of where they are straight from Serebii. --TTEchidna 01:25, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Like I said, don't take the descriptions straight from Serebii. Believe me, most people can't tell between the areas of the Safari Zone unless looking at a guidebook. Just say it's in the Safari Zone and if they want to find it, they will find it. And please, please, use the {{rtn}} template for multiple routes... --TTEchidna 21:07, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

When linking a Pokémon species, be sure to use the {{p}} link template, too. --TTEchidna 00:29, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Link templates

It's important to use them, especially the {{p}} one. Please do so. --TTEchidna 04:18, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey, quit ignoring me. Use the link templates! They're there for a reason. --TTEchidna 04:38, 21 June 2007 (UTC)


Last warning: Start using the link templates when linking a Pokémon species (such as Onix), because no one wants to go to a redirect page, or worse, a disambiguation page, like Onix, among others, is. That, and it's important, it's part of the manual of style to link all abilities, Pokémon species, moves, types, and several other things with the link templates instead of plain square brackets.

For example: I can put that Mewtwo learns Psychic using just square brackets, but look at that! Two disambiguation pages! This is why we use the link templates, because although it produces the same results as [[Mewtwo (Pokémon)|Mewtwo]] learns [[Psychic (move)|Psychic]], it certainly is a lot easier to just go with {{p|Mewtwo}} learns {{m|Psychic}} to correctly link the sentence as Mewtwo learns Psychic.

Also, be sure to check out your links, the area that serves as Greevil's lair is Citadark Isle, not Island, and Shadow Pokémon in Colo/XD are indicated in the availability template in parentheses as [[Shadow Pokémon|Shadow]], not by what trainer they can be snagged from.

Thanks for reading! Now, get to doing! --TTEchidna 01:20, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Lemme tell ya something

In many Pokémon games, the Pokémon have a move in their level-up moveset twice. Trust me on this one. TTEchidna 23:23, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Project Globe

On the Project Globe template, please don't unhide the pages that haven't been made yet. We don't make links visible unless those pages are created. Thanks, --ZestyCactus 02:26, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Censored words list

A move to that title was suggested and wasn't finalized yet, especially with the info gathering for Gen VI. Instead of copying an entire page, which is not how moving a page works, why don't you make your voice heard on the matter? Look for the section titled "Restricted nickname?", which is currently recent enough for replies, and it mentions the suggested title. Berrenta (talk) 03:20, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I notice that this was the second time you made the page. If you want the page to be moved please use the link above and discuss it on the talk page. Copy and pasting to a new page is not how it should be done. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 03:23, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
