And when's that? Flicky1991 09:46, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

March the 7th...Optimatum♏Talk|Hi 09:47, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Well looking at the archives above, I'm going to have to wish you good luck with trying to keep discussion down here. Glinn 11:13, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Yea lol. Before we came, you didn't have to archive your talk page! --Theryguy512 14:51, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I have an suggestion, when your done training your other Pyschos, try making a Hitmonchan one, They have the boltbeam combo with the elemtail punches, They can destory Blissy in one shot if you have a good fighting type punching attack if the ability is Iron Fist AND you don't have a single fighting type Pyscho yet.--Quick Man 15:16, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

There's a pattern with the Psychos. Psychic/Psycho Boost/Psycho Cut, a 1/2 HP recovery move, and two other moves. Hitmonchan can't learn either. But no need to worry, I've got a Fighting-type Psycho on the way... TTEchidnaGSDS! 23:03, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Type Combos

Well, it's been over a month now, so I thought it would be time to show you how far I've gotten. (Not very! XD)

CLICK HERE TESHTALKFUN 15:43, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Not too far yet, but good, good. TTEchidnaGSDS! 22:55, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Character Template

Well, I'm just full of good (or not) ideas for templates. Although often unnecessary, a link template for human characters (manga, anime, and otherwise) could come in handy. For instance, {{c|Berlitz}} would link to Berlitz. Sorry if I'm clogging your talk page with useless shit, but sometimes it's useful! -ニョロトノ666 22:54, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Template:C's already taken. It serves the same purpose as Template:TCG. --Shiningpikablu252 22:57, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
In that case, {{ca|Berlitz}}. -ニョロトノ666 23:03, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
{{an}} is for anime, {{ga}} is for games, {{special}} is for Special characters. {{PiPiPi}} is for PiPiPi characters, {{CCP}} is for CCP characters... oy, the shortlinks number so many now. TTEchidnaGSDS! 23:03, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


Um... About the discussion about the breeding, you seemed a little tense. Are you okay?PokeManiac102 06:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

YES. Because if that gets mentioned soon we'll have a truck fiasco all over again. TTEchidnaGSDS! 06:50, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay... I'm gonna go get the little men... with the big net. Don't move. |: PokeManiac102 06:52, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey, sorry if I caused trouble, but I wasn't entirely sure so I posted in the talk page first, so at least it wasn't a main article, right? Also, I just got a copy of Prima's guide, and it says that they aren't. I can't tell which to trust, so please help me out here, as I don't like to breed very often. --The cake is a lie but the cube is forever 03:05, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Trust us. We're right. All the time. Bulbapedia is truth! Abilities aren't passed by breeding. Abilities are specific to their species. Natures are the thing that gets passed with the Everstone. TTEchidnaGSDS! 03:35, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Truth? Well there is some speculation here and there.PokeManiac102 02:44, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Shh. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. TTEchidnaGSDS! 05:41, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Yup, I really love you --Jemar 02:10, 4 January 2008 (UTC)I never get tired of tricking people with the words "I love you" and people believe it. Bwuhhahaha

Okay? Why do I see words when I highlight the Sig?PokeManiac102 02:14, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

I see that you fell for it. It was an IQ test (when it comes to true or false). Everybody knows (at school) I HATE multiple accounts because I have to take care of that so this entire thing was a test no hard feelings and there will be NO mia count thing... And everybodies' score is 4 out of 10%. But your all clever to get the white text... Who here knew that I was just tricking you raise you right leg (another test who ever did that got a small score)... No hard feelings every one... oh yeah... the leaving part... it's true... see you guys in uh... 9000 minutes --Jemar 02:23, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

P.S. What I said about "I love You" Thing its creppy but its true (but it meant I love you as a great editor.) --Jemar 02:25, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Okay!!??? *cough* *cough* *crazy* *cough*

Whats so weird about loving people as brothers and sisters? I'm not a... Oh! I get what you mean.. you think im a... nevermind. Conversation Over, period, end of story, and forget i said i love you... *echoe*

Huh? I have no idea what you just said. And I was joking of course. But it's nothing compared to what Ivan would say.PokeManiac102 02:32, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Before I leave... is it normal for me to eat rat filled with strawberry jam... It's so chewy and you should try it sometime...--Jemar 02:34, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. Out of Strawberry Jam. Will Grape work?PokeManiac102 02:35, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Sure. Let's get chuffing the gross way! --Jemar 02:38, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Sigh.. imo, you shouldn't spam TTE's page when he just archived it.. >_> It'd be nice if this page didn't take forever to load for a few days, yknow. ._. Tina δ 02:40, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Ah and I also have a pet hamster as an appetizer and a guinie pig as desert.PokeManiac102 02:40, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

That means... my computer is really fast because you said it was very slow to load (wow it rhymed!) but in my computer it only takes a second!!! I'm so shocked! What should I do to make it slower? I want to be like every computer in the world!!! *murmurs to himself*I'm not an out cast...*finished murmuring*

No, it's loading fast. It's just that this is very rare, as TTE's talk page usually takes forever to load. Hopefully we can keep it this way for a bit. e_e Tina δ 02:45, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

End of conversation before my laptop blows up when trying to load it.PokeManiac102 02:41, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

But why in my computer it's faster to reload. And why wont we just get rid of this section? --Jemar 02:44, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

First thing, it feels like the page is fully loaded before i even click it. My computer is very fast. Go to his archives and it takes a while to load. I'm just saying not to overload the talkpage.PokeManiac102 02:45, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Okay, since you're not on AIM, I'll just tell you here. User:MysteryHeff? just created an article called Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen Dumptruck. Right away, you know it's bad. Can you please delete it and ban User:MysteryHeff????? --Theryguy512 23:47, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

ARGH! He recreated the exact article under Pokemon FireRed and LeafGrean Dumptruck‎. Delete it and ban him, please. --Theryguy512 23:55, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! --Theryguy512 00:40, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Anime episode page consistancy

I've noticed in the Anime pages in the first paragraph (where it says the first date it was aired), that that part is not worded the same throughout. If I would change them from ex: "It first broadcast in Japan on January 1, 2006, and it is schedueled to air on January 29, 2007 in the US" to "It first aired in Japan on January 1, 2006 and in the United States on January 29, 2007," would you mind? Moldy orange 00:10 4 January 2008

Hold your hourses! (NAY!!!!!) We can program a bot to do that. Please submit your suggestion on this page. Thank you. --Theryguy512 00:25, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
No! Bots = bad. I wanna beat BulbaBot again and keep the lead. TTEchidnaGSDS! 04:00, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Go ahead!! You can change it if you want. I already changed the ones in AG that said it is schedueled to air, but that is all I did. Moldy orange 04:06, 4 January 2008

Welcome Template Suggestion

Since many users have welcome templates to put on new user's tak pages, like mine, why don't we pile the ideas and create one offical one. We could make it like {{Welcome|Theryguy512}}, but it would show the same text as {{Welcome|Shiny Noctowl}} or {{Welcome|TinaTheKirlia}}, but just have the end like this is an automatic message from-''whoever put the template on the talk page''. Do you get what I mean? --Theryguy512 01:17, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Sure. I'll put one together this weekend, all right? TTEchidnaGSDS! 03:56, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I think one was already made.PokeManiac102 03:59, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
...really? I just looked up 'Template:Welcome' and I got nothin. Tina δ 04:00, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Since when was it confirmed to be in Brawl? Do you know? --Theryguy512 11:54, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

I believe you mean it, you were never mentioned to appear in Brawl, my dear Ryguy...Optimatum♏Talk|Hi 12:07, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Welcome template

Uh... your signature is in the {{Welcome}} template.. could you edit it out? Tina δ 22:37, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

My signature? Odd... I thought I forced it as an <includeonly>... {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:39, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
No, I don't think it's actually in the template. He just signed because he was the one that added it to that particular user's page. If I added the welcome template to a new user's page, I would sign with my signature. -ニョロトノ666 22:41, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually, it is, but I'm trying to make a signature hack to automate it. One of you, put {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig hack}} after your next message. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig hack}}

Whoa. Ivan actually made the poll.{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 00:21, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
All I did was ask an opinion. Polls are not needed for fricking everything. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 00:22, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes I know. I think Tina said it. We were having a discussion until Ivan made a poll, saying that we should do this the right way.{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 00:28, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
The right way is a discussion. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 00:36, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Understood. So do we abolish the Poll?{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 00:39, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Go for it, I guess. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 00:45, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay that can be taken as a yes or a no.{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 00:56, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
I said go for it. Say "no poll" and start a new section talking about the turkey shoot's deletion. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 01:04, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Regarding my Grammar

Sorry, English is my second language, but I'll proofread next time. Thanks for fixing that paragraph though. Koolboyman 03:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Drew's Butterfree

Deletion or no? I say no, as Drew isn's a COTD, and I just reverted a pro-deletion edit, but you, as a sysop, have the final say. Exercise your supreme power! -ニョロトノ666 03:27, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Putting a deletion template on a page doesn't automatically mean it's going to be deleted. It basically leaves a note for a sysop to check it out and see whether it should stay or not.
And Drew's Butterfree is COMPLETELY unnotable. No Drew isn't a COD but he's not a main character either. Rival's should only have articles on their NOTE WORTHY Pokémon. Look at Gary. He's more notable than Drew is but he only has articles for a couple of his Pokémon. And some of them are more notable than Drew's Butterfree. What did it do? It was in for one frickin episode and now we're mostly likely NEVER going to see it again. I'm against creating articles for unnotable rival Pokémon. And to top it all off, this page was deleted before meaning that the rules were broken when it was recreated. --'ケンジ'ガール 04:40, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Also, could you help resolve the dispute regarding Powerhouse? The others don't seem to respect Unown Lord's authority as much as your own, perhaps because he's not as active. A protection order would be helpful. Thanks a lot. -ニョロトノ666 03:34, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Ack. I'm not the final say, nor am I the only say. We should discuss both. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 05:57, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Is Zhen Lin the final say? There's a discussion on his talk page.{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 05:59, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

It's just that I'm scared to go to someone with such power. XZ and PM created Super Mario Wiki. It's just that I'm scared of being blocked.{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 07:03, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

But I'm not the one who sticks the code in! {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 08:02, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Hoenn Maps

I'm interested in how the Hoenn Maps such as Image:Hoenn Route101 Map.gif were made, seeing that no map was made for Southern Island, Battle Frontier/Tower, etc. I'd like to fill in these gaps if possible. KelvSYC 07:21, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, for Southern Island and Battle Tower/Frontier, it'd be more like the town maps, which is pretty much pixel-by-pixel matching to the game... {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 08:55, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

But IIRC, Southern Island is partly obscured by the bottom right text unless you zoom in. Where that would be exactly would be hard to tell, right? KelvSYC 18:28, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Not really. The map we've got for the base has no text, it's essentially the Pokédex map. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:09, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

I just looked at your usertags...

God is, or He is not. But to which side shall we incline? Reason can decide nothing here. There is an infinite chaos which separated us. A game is being played at the extremity of this infinite distance where heads or tails will turn up. What will you wager? According to reason, you can do neither the one thing nor the other; according to reason, you can defend neither of the propositions.

Do not, then, reprove for error those who have made a choice; for you know nothing about it. "No, but I blame them for having made, not this choice, but a choice; for again both he who chooses heads and he who chooses tails are equally at fault, they are both in the wrong. The true course is not to wager at all."

Yes; but you must wager. It is not optional. You are embarked. Which will you choose then? Let us see. Since you must choose, let us see which interests you least. You have two things to lose, the true and the good; and two things to stake, your reason and your will, your knowledge and your happiness; and your nature has two things to shun, error and misery. Your reason is no more shocked in choosing one rather than the other, since you must of necessity choose. This is one point settled. But your happiness? Let us weigh the gain and the loss in wagering that God is. Let us estimate these two chances. If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation that He is. "That is very fine. Yes, I must wager; but I may perhaps wager too much." Let us see. Since there is an equal risk of gain and of loss, if you had only to gain two lives, instead of one, you might still wager. But if there were three lives to gain, you would have to play (since you are under the necessity of playing), and you would be imprudent, when you are forced to play, not to chance your life to gain three at a game where there is an equal risk of loss and gain. But there is an eternity of life and happiness. And this being so, if there were an infinity of chances, of which one only would be for you, you would still be right in wagering one to win two, and you would act stupidly, being obliged to play, by refusing to stake one life against three at a game in which out of an infinity of chances there is one for you, if there were an infinity of an infinitely happy life to gain. But there is here an infinity of an infinitely happy life to gain, a chance of gain against a finite number of chances of loss, and what you stake is finite.

Pascal's wager is for people too fearful of being wrong, just so you know. And I don't think the "kill all nonbelievers" God of the three Abrahamic religions would like very much anyone who believed just so they don't get tortured forever. My wager's on being a good person to my fellow humans over believing 2000-year-old crap.
In short, Pascal was a chickenshit. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 23:17, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Since everything is metaphorically in motion towards completing its purpose, something must have provided the initial "push". Furthermore, this thing must be complete and metaphorically unmoving, since it being in motion would require another thing to "push" it. See? God's existence is easily proved through simple Aristotelean logic (no faith is required to prove that a god of some kind exists). {{subst:User:Shiny Noctowl/Signature}} 13:11, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
What, exactly, do you mean by "completing its purpose"? The only purpose to anything is that which we give to it. Nothing's important to the universe, all it means anything to is us. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 20:17, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Read my arguments in the Marriland Forums "Do you believe in God?" thread. {{subst:User:Shiny Noctowl/Signature}} 21:24, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

It'll be the same argument I've heard a million times before. "If you don't, you'll die forever" "everyone else is doing it" "God said to" "the Bible said to". Shiny, I accept your Christianity if you accept my atheism. Have I gone around Bulbapedia telling everyone to not believe in God? No. I keep that to myself unless I get into one of my heated arguments with my friends. So... you keep it to yourself.
Believe me, one day I'll be running for the Presidency of the US. Decision 2024 if we aren't a fascist dictatorship beforehand. My dream is that this super-religion-ized world can just accept people as they are and not insist that a candidate's religion or lack thereof be an important part of their campaign. People were afraid Kennedy would let the Pope run the country when he was elected because he was Roman Catholic. He didn't. But I know for sure that if I were to run for President now I'd be kicked out of the race for the "crime" of being an atheist. Freedom of religion doesn't mean "have a religion or you aren't free". It means "believe whatever the hell you want, we aren't gonna stop you". Back when the Constitution was written, atheism wasn't really discussed because it was taboo, thanks to the religious fearful owning everything.
So, in closing, leave me be about my lack of religion, and I'll leave you be about yours. 'Kay? {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:34, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Masuda: 'Please play Pokémon Diamond/Pearl on Jan. 12' Game Freak director promises 'something different' Thursday, January 10, 2008 Junichi Masuda, the game director of Game Freak, wrote in his HIDDEN POWER of Masuda blog today that owners of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl will find "something different" in the games when they play this Saturday.

When you protected the template, you quoted "Though I hope this'll get phased out soon enough...". Well, I've been making edits, doing just that. Every encyclopedic page except for List of items by type (the template's target and very messy) and Missingno (protected) have been covered.

Is it possible to clear the one instance of this template from Missingno's page? The item in question is the Silph Scope. --Shiningpikablu252 18:23, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I've went ahead and taken care of most of the redirects, even creating a few new pages in doing so. However, I don't know what to do with Exp. All, Escape Rope, Ragecandybar, or Frontier Pass. As far as I know, finding homes for these items are the last obstacles before we can overhaul that mess called List of items by type. Got any ideas? --Shiningpikablu252 01:44, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Frontier pass is the same kind of thing as the trainer card. Ragecandybar... doesn't that heal 20HP? Exp. All... I think that's somewhere... Escape Rope... is difficult to place. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 09:18, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
OK, the Frontier Pass and Exp. All have been taken care of. Yes, the Ragecandybar does heal 20 HP like the standard Potion, but it's not itself a potion and it's not herbal medicine, so I don't know where to put the Ragecandybar. And, of course, the Escape Rope would be difficult to place since it doesn't exactly fit in standard item categories...

Why don't you list the items like the Bag in Generation IV. So you have an Items Page, then a Medicine Page, etc.(Don't mean to intrude...) {{subst:User:Tesh/Signature}} 16:57, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Oh! I think I figured out what happened. Around here, IPs are dynamic. I'm likely not the only one who's had the IP I used earlier... in which, yes, I did mess around with your slogan. Nothing else that I remember, but it proves to ya that page protection should be used on those very-often-used templates... Imagine what would happen if someone messed with the {{p}} before it was protected... after all, MysteryHeff?, who I assume (though don't know for sure) came from SpongePedia, put the little... odd... slogan thingy... on the $1 page. Which is a really, really not-to-be-touched page. You don't touch the dollar page, man!
In essence, though, wiki vandalism does help more than it hurts in the long run. Sure, it may suck to wade through crap edits, but hey, I do it and get by. Vandalism exposes vulnerabilities in wikis, making those priorities to fix... which, with often-used templates, can be very easily altered on a massive scale. Think about it: a template like {{p}} or {{m}} is used on most every page here, and on many of them, it is used many more times than once.
Heck, one or both of those have been on the Main Page's DYK sub-thing from the start! And they were wide open, too. Heck, the DYK is wide open... hmmm. I wonder if we should have it protected against new users.

Well, if you want a Cyndaquil with a specific nature, or with egg moves... tell me so I can breed it. Other than that, I'll likely be able to trade somewhere around 8:00 PM CST tomorrow. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:54, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
I have time to breed, so that's not a problem. Hehe I'm not too good with time zones. CST and UTS are both term which I am not very familiar with. If I was to tell you that, the UTC, the time you get when you sign a signature, is the time it is where I live, then would it OK to trade the same time tomorrow?

I'll make this brief. First of all, what is an orphaned page? Secondly, shouldn't all the games pages like Pokémon Emerald be titled "Pokémon Emerald Version," as that's the official name of the game? (At least, I think it is.) -Politoed666 22:21, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

An orphaned page is one that nothing links to. A dead-end page is the opposite of it (not that everything links to, but that links to nothing). As for the game titles... well, I dunno. I do suppose that they'd be properly named as Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version, and so on... but the one problem is that there are just so many pages that link there in their current states... {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:25, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
At the moment, it just so happens that I have several hours of free time...? -Politoed666 22:26, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, I do suppose... just remember, Red and Blue are together Pokémon Red and Blue Versions, so don't forget that s. And have the main series template open and ready to save as soon as you start moving things around so at least that links properly. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:30, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Do you deem it necessary to rename the "Pokémon Red and Blue" category "Category:Pokémon Red and Blue Versions?" -Politoed666 23:29, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
I think it'd be a bad idea, that's just my personal opinion. You'd have to move everything out of the category and delete the old one. Which sucks. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 04:11, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

I've posted on some other admin's talk page, but I haven't got a reply...

  • New anime category suggestion -- running gags... if only I remembered how to make a new catergory...Help? ^^;
  • Add footprint sprites into the Pokédex.
  • I found some images that could be used for the Colosseum and XD trainers. Only problem is that they're not mine, and I can't speak Spanish. They're at Pokémon-Safari and are found here and here.
  • I started an article on Hack Games, but it needs a little work...

Anyway, what do you think? --Manga-in-a-bottle 11:10, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

  • The category'd be at Anime running gags, all you gotta do is add [[Category:Anime running gags]] to a page to put it in there.
  • Good idea. Start uploading them as "Footprint[ndex].png" and I'll add them to the infobox when they're done.
  • Ay... que lastima... I could ask them... but eh. Maybe sometime later.
  • You bet your ass it does. FIRST THING TO REMEMBER: NO FREAKING TITLE CASE. Hack games, not Hack Games. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 23:32, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Question 1: Should I replace the Menusprites on the List of Pokémon with Animated ones?

Question 2: Nevermind, I forgot it.

{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 01:17, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

  1. No. No, no, no. Do NOT replace static menusprites with animated menusprites. Animated menusprites should be used only if there'll be only a few, like with the anime Pokémon infobox. Static ones should be used in all other instances so as to reduce load time and tax on the viewer's CPU.

Re:Link Templates

Oh sorry about the links, I'm new to the site hah; my contributions to the article for Red and Green Version are all I've done so far. Not to say I'm new to wikis, I'm actually one of the two admins of MansonWiki and have the most contributions to the site (pretty much every article there was either created by me, or had my involvement at some other point). But anyways, I'll definitely keep in mind the Bulbapedia way to link to Pokémon and move articles. And one other thing: do you guys not italicize the titles of Pokémon products on the Bulbapedia? What I mean is when I did the Red and Green Version article, I had italicized all instances of game titles, but now I notice it was changed. Not that it's an issue, I was just wondering if italicizing titles of games and such isn't encouraged in Bulbapedia articles or something. Vixen Windstorm 23:03, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

We don't italicize game titles, no. Episode and movie titles are the only thing, really. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 02:09, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Are headlines not supposed to link to anything? Like, has it been decided that in the Politoed article, should it say "In the anime" and "In the TCG" instead of "In the anime" and "In the TCG?" -Politoed666 20:35, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for protecting the templates I made yesterday and adding them to Bulbapedia:Shortlinks. Btw, why isn't the shortlinks page protected?

I am a big fan of your stuff especially your hope for GSDS which I am also hoping for. I do hope you take my apology as sufficient and understand I meant no harm. Bobtherandomguy
Well, make sure to leave enough time to finish your edits... {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 19:26, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

You know, that's not Mags. And no, MAXDude, you don't. Most new people have a bit of difficulty starting off. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 22:11, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

How can I make Pokémon sprites appear on my signature like you and most others around here have? TheBlazikenMaster 08:55, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Create a signature subpage of your userpage (User:TheBlazikenMaster/sig). Then just put in whatever you want to appear in your signature (keep it simply text and one or two small images, no tables, please). For example, you might wanna make it TheBlazikenMaster.
After this, create a second subpage, which should be at User:TheBlazikenMaster/Sig (the case does matter, so this page isn't the same as the other one). Include the first page you made inside the second as a template, doing like so: {{subst:User:TheBlazikenMaster/sig}}. That's it. Then, go to "my preferences" up in the top of the page. Check the box next to "raw signatures (without automatic link)" and paste in the field next to "nickname" {{SUBST:User:TheBlazikenMaster/Sig}}. Then just test it out here. {{subst:User:TTEchidna/sig}} 19:45, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
That's very helpful, but I can't find the pages that has the Pokémon sprites. Can you help me find it? TheBlazikenMaster 01:18, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
There's a system to them. Animated minisprites are called with the {{ani}}, like so: 376. Static minisprites are called with {{MS}}: 227. Other sprites really shouldn't be used. TTEchidna 03:16, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

More TM Junk

well, they are pretty much all done. the only thing left is if you want money. also, just wondering what you think about adding these on the TM pages. the example shows if somone was looking at TM28.

Cost and sellfor price are both good. The prevnext thing would be a good idea, too. Only one, at the bottom. TTEchidna 07:27, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
ok, so ill add that thing. also, putting Poké Coupon is rather large i think, so, hows about PkCp? {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 23:48, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
well, by using TM28 as a guini-pig (sp?), im not sure if it really looks good... {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 03:33, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Cost should be one column, with it filled in as either (amount)PC, (amount)BP, or PokémonDollar.png(amount). And it's guinea pig. TTEchidna 05:55, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
ok. do you think TM28 page looks ok? i think it looks cluttered with the extra bar. maybe have it on top instead? {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 18:53, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I'd put the prevnext under the disambig thing... TTEchidna 23:03, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
it indeed does look better. {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 05:17, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
I am really getting tired of this TM business{{subst:User:Pokemaniac102/Sig}} 05:24, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
thats ok, considering yur not a part of it. (no offence) im sure TTE is pretty tired of me bothering him as well, but, i just want it to be right. {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 05:50, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
It seems right to me. TTEchidna 06:57, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
it seems right that adding the ep. bar and monetary values will be a good way to finish it? or, it seems right as of now, and i should not bother with those things? {{subst:User:MAGNEDETH/Sig}} 07:04, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Prevnext and cost/sellfor should be enough. TTEchidna 07:34, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Dawn's Piplup

Could we put Dawn's Piplup as a default character in the anime? You know, like with have Pikachu and Meowth. It seems to appear in every single episode.

Oh and could you tell me what the template is for Meowth? --'ケンジ'ガール 00:04, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it should be more like Jessie's Wobbuffet since there are some episodes in which Dawn's Piplup did not appear, here's one example. And as for Wobbuffet's example here. Ej92 01:12, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Ej92. And the template for Meowth is {{MTR}}. {{subst:User:Theryguy512/Sig}} 14:29, 1 March 2008 (UTC)


This user is threating to vandalize the site if we don't do what he says.- unsigned comment from Darth Cookie Monster (talkcontribs)

nope.that's what's happening.Garrison12795 02:30, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Terrible. TTEchidna 02:40, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
While we are on the subject of vandalism, Why do we keep the user/user talk pages of users infinitely banned? I find no use whatsoever to keep these and I think they should be deleted (unless you tell me the reason why). MoldyOrange 03:16, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I dunno either, actually. Zhen or Archaic would know... though I personally think they should be kept for posterity. TTEchidna 03:23, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I think that the user pages with cuss words in the title should definitely be deleted, the other ones can stay. MoldyOrange 03:27, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Such as? Just plop a delete tag on 'em, and we'll get to 'em... TTEchidna 03:35, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

I say keep 'em. That way they serve as a warning to any other morons out there. --Manga-in-a-bottle 05:00, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

No, don't keep them. That's just extra, wasted space. --Theryguy512 12:00, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Theryguy. It is a waste of space. Even I'm cutting my User pages down. Well, I've got rid of the useless ones which can be put into my main User page. I think the number of user pages should be limited (unless they can become real pages in the near future) because paople are just signing up to Bulbapedia to mess around with user pages rather than edit.

TCG Set Infobox

Hi there, when you put your TCG set infobox up on here, you reminded me of one that I created on Wikia Scratchpad about a year ago now. I ported it over to Bulbapedia and cleaned it up - let me know what you think of it, and the source template is on the main userpage if you wanna take a look at it too. Double Dash 16:58, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Hmm... Well, it doesn't much need the "preceded by/followed by" stuff... and I would include the set symbol in addition to the logo. TTEchidna 06:25, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Changed to remove the set order and include the set symbol. Double Dash 14:44, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Hmm... Yes, looks good. I do think we need the decktypes in there, though... maybe it's just me. TTEchidna 16:37, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
I have some small Energy symbols on my computer, so I'll upload 'em and see what they look like. I think it'd look better without them, but I'm not one to make a decision without trying all the possibilities. :-) Double Dash 10:42, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Happy BarfBirthday!

Here, have a present.

This user is threatening to keep reverting anything that says the DP069 Toxicroak is of an alternate coloration until we agree that it is not. There is no solid evidence that the anime is treating that coloration as normal, and until there is, it should be assumed that the Toxicroak in question is indeed alternate-colored. However, from what I've seen, I don't think DocDoak will accept this and will try to make good on the threat he made on Talk:Toxicroak (Pokémon). Can something be done? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 18:15, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Do you have a personal vendetta against me? I will say it again: Ash scanned a shiny noctowl and the pokedex showed him a normal noctowl. Ash scans this toxicroak and the pokedex showed him..guess what? THIS toxicroak. it is a normal one. We don´t need an interview or something like that. <- look at all of the toys. btw, the toys are much older than this weeks episode, so , no, it isn´t a toy-line for the episode. Toxicroak is not the first pokemon which looks different in the first games it was released in than the other medias. think about bellosom or ariados... DocDoak, 18:12, 7 March 2008 I am not a threat. I want this to be an actually encyclopedia and we don´t need rumours here. Docdoak, 18:21, 7 March 2008

Ay. Look, it's been a long time since a shiny Pokémon even appeared in the anime. Why not one come out of the blue?
Personally, I think it's shiny until proven otherwise. Sure, the dex showed him the same color Toxicroak, but the animators have messed up with coloring before. Point is, this Toxicroak matches the shiny Toxicroak seen in the games, which are of course now full-color, meaning that we can't have the errors we did before with coloration. It's not really a rumor, it's just... well, how it appears, so as far as we know, it's shiny. TTEchidna 23:08, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Besides, for all we know, the model 7 Pokédex (the one Ash and Dawn use now) has pictures of multiple color variations for each Pokémon programmed into it. It probably detected the alternate color and showed that instead of the normal. Pokédex technology has very likely progressed with each model--recall that model 2 (the one Ash used between EP050 and EP116) displayed Vileplume's normal petal pattern even when a Vileplume was shown with a different one. --Shiningpikablu252 00:03, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
