I hit an edit conflict with you twice, and the second said inuse. Do you mind if I save an edit, then you continue. If its been over an hour, disregard this message. --SnorlaxMonster 05:13, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah go for it, sorry D; --ZestyCactus 05:15, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
You actually did pretty much everything I was going to, but I'll save the few differences there were. --SnorlaxMonster 05:16, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Great minds think alike, I suppose ;) --ZestyCactus 05:17, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
After the first conflict, I had a bit I wanted to change. After the second one, only this little bit was left. Also, were you thinking of breaking the article off away from Glitches? If so, we think too much alike. --SnorlaxMonster 05:20, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I had thought about it before, especially after the second gen stuff was added, but I decided it was fine for now. But 8F Way added a crapton of stuff and now I think it's definitely enough to flesh out into a full article. I'm actually almost done proofreading, could you hold off for a few more minutes? --ZestyCactus 05:29, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
K I'm done for now. Go for it :) --ZestyCactus 05:40, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

from: rasengan0 Hey man, thanks for the tips. i know i do use the preview button. I just accidentally hit save page and the page was incomplete. - unsigned comment from rasengan0 (talkcontribs)

Also how do i add an image of a pokemon in-battle. - unsigned comment from rasengan0 (talkcontribs)

yes thats exactly what i did. I used a pokemon modifier code and Screenshotted. - unsigned comment from rasengan0 (talkcontribs)

eh - i can try to use an encouter code and steal trainer's pokemon if you would like a pokedex entry. i've done it before. dont remember if the game froze or wat. - unsigned comment from rasengan0 (talkcontribs)

Links to some Pokémon food products that could be added...

I was searching for further Pokémon food products to add whilst browsing, and found this link (http://www.hardrock-pokemon.com/PokemonCardAccessories/EeveeCandyTin) (which contains M&M-like candy), along with this (http://www.wizzywig.com/xcart/catalog/Meiji-Pokemon-Movie-Gummy-p-47315.html). Would you be able to help me find and add suitable, standard-format information about them to the article? (Usually, I would be able to do it without assistance, but lately it seems I have been suffering from a lack of self-confidence on Bulbapedia, probably caused by the HG/SS Server Overload gap.) Steph 22:24, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I can poke around the net for a little bit and maybe write some stuff up. I totally know what you mean re: confidence, I've been finding it hard/weird to get back into editing :S --ZestyCactus 01:28, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Bronzong

Hi!. I see that you erased my addition to Bronzong’s article. I’d like to justify it. I took it from [[1]]. From my point of view it is notable because it explains: why a mirror evolves into a bell, its ability (Heatproof), why Bronzong is a Psychic-type (the spirit of the woman), its Diamonf Pokédex entry (One caused a news sensation when it was dug up at a construction site after a 2000-year sleep). I’d like to know the reason behind your deletion. --Siegfried 20:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

I erased it because I found your explanation of the legend was quite long, yet did not explain why it relates to Bronzong (your justification makes enough sense, but its not neccessarily obvious). I suppose its ok to include in the article if you make it clearer how it relates to Bronzong (and try not to make it too long plz D:). There isn't a wikipedia article on it (or something) that you could link to, is there? --ZestyCactus 20:55, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, I tried to summarize to the bones the original text to emphasize only the notable informations. I actually avoided on purpose to make links to Heatproof, Bronzor and so on because I didn't want to be too pedantic, but it seems I turned too esoteric instead... I actually don't know how to make it shorter without spoiling it (it's just a little more than 3 lines), but if you have any idea, feel free to edit it. The source is quite autoritative, being taken from Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things, a famous book by Lafcadio Hearn. As you can see in the article, I've taken it from the Of a Mirror and a Bell story. --Siegfried 21:17, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks ZC.

Thanks for fixing the link on my userpage, Zesty. It's nice to have people other than me going to it. ^_^ --Mackinz of SoulSilver 07:15, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

PKMN LATAM

There is enough information in the article but do you think you need something else? if there are more things to add, I think the only thing left is do a review (from you) of grammar and spelling, but then other details then postulate for featured article. --Toonamimaniacolatino 17:17, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Help me please, is urgent. --Toonamimaniacolatino 21:55, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, but please do it as soon as possible. I want this article be a featured article but what I have said before and I have no idea what to do. --Toonamimaniacolatino 16:38, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea, but in the case of dubbing of those movies in Argentina is complicated that we only know that these movies are dubbed in that country but we know for sure the voice actors for each character in them. --Toonamimaniacolatino 18:11, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
It looks good, but I was thinking that part of what they had said in the discussion about the large number of external links and names are in bold, do you think that you can greatly reduce that? I was thinking too well and I think is right in saying there are several pictures of the voice actors, I think we should leave the paper the images of the most important voice actors what do you think? --Toonamimaniacolatino 18:29, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good and I think there is no choice. --Toonamimaniacolatino 02:50, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello. Please do not forget to help me with the item. Not much time left. --Toonamimaniacolatino 16:28, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

about the ranger manga

I dont think it was

the manga is only available to the Daisuki Fanclub (or whatever its called) online and therefore would only be availabe online...

the same for battonage I assume...(also I've never heard anything about blazing exploration squad bein more than a one shot) (Ataro 15:01, 7 July 2010 (UTC))

As to not fill up their talk pages..

Both Suzuran Conference and Shimama are missing their accented é. For Shimama, é is missing in the first sentence of physiology, and for Suzuran Conference, in the second and third paragraphs, respectively. --Green 20:26, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Volume 8 Viz

You got the copy? Tell me everything. First, did they catch Youngster Joey's name? --Maxim 19:11, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, a comic shop in my city released them early. They did catch Joey's name, and the Sages in Sprout Tower have the same names as in the game too. All of the rounds have different titles from Chuang Yi's version (as was expected), and Gold's Pokémon's nicknames end in -bo instead of -taro (Aibo, Polibo, Exbo, Sunbo). --ZestyCactus 19:50, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

COuld you at least tell us the names? sorry to bother (Ataro 19:53, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

Aibo = Ataro, Polibo = Poltaro, Exbo = Explotaro, Sunbo = Sintaro. --ZestyCactus 19:55, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

I meant the chapters... (Ataro 19:56, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

Oh! lol sorry my bad. CP asked me not to add them to the articles until the 3rd, but here they are:

--ZestyCactus 20:00, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Awesome info, thanks Zesty! --Maxim 20:05, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah, one more thing. In Japanese (Kainen, Mokunen etc.) and Chuang Yi (Painful, Mindful etc.) the Sages' names made a pun, so they wanted to call Gold "Awful" (in Japanese "Nanya-nen" which means "WTF"). What did they try to call him in Viz version, then? --Maxim 20:10, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Well VIZ just grabbed the names of the sages out of the games, so there's no pun to be made and they just say "You shall be called Nanyanen" out of nowhere. o_O i guess they missed that one :P --ZestyCactus 20:14, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
The names in Japanese were grabbed out of the games as well. The thing is, that Japanese give names with meaning even to normal, meaningless trainers. The English game translators don't, they just give random names. But it's good that they're consistent with the game translations. I actually prefer it to some pun. --Maxim 20:16, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Who gives a hoot, Electric Incorporated, Stand by me, Number one Fan, Crocodile Rock, Sunken Treasure, Into the Unknown, Ursa Major, YOu aint nothin's but a hound dog (Cryin' all the time) thats all I got from the puns (Ataro 20:27, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

There's also "Teddiursa's Picnic", which comes from "Teddy Bears' Picnic", a children's song. --ZestyCactus 20:30, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Policy

Is there a place on Bulbapedia where users can discuss policies and maybe bring up ideas for improvements? If so, where? FrozenStrategy 13:36, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, you can definitely check out the Bulbawiki forum on the Bulbagarden forums, that's sort of the main place to discuss ideas and policies and all that (most of the admins do check it). Other than that, I suppose bring it up on the talk page of the policy or article in question. Hope I helped! ^^ --ZestyCactus 14:56, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay

So I may have just massively done something wrong here; if I did, I apologize. insomniac put the welcome template on User:Operationchoco rather than on the User Talk page, which you proceeded to add. So I blanked their user page, but didn't delete it. Was that a bad thing to do, and could you possibly go in and delete the page itself to get it back to how it should properly be? - unsigned comment from Phantomjunkie (talkcontribs)

Man, I even forgot to sign my comment. I'm having a bad evening here. xD --PhantomJunkie 02:27, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Someone's about to delete it, don't worry ;D You didn't do the wrong thing, but next time, it's best to put {{delete|reason}} so that the page will show up in a category of pages to be deleted (so that sooner or later an administrator will see it and delete it). --ZestyCactus 02:29, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Whew, okay, good. I'm really trying to be helpful and take care of things to take some of the load off of you guys. But I still don't know a whole lot about the wikicoding and stuff beyond the most basic of basics. xD Please bear with me! --PhantomJunkie 02:32, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
You're off to a great start! You'll get the hang of wikicode soon, keep up the good work! ;D --ZestyCactus 02:37, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Help

I am sorry to bother you but I need help with something on my account and you were on the list of staff. I'm sorry if this is not where this message is supposed to go but I really have no idea how to do anything here. That brings me to what I need help with. I really have no idea how to use this site and have already accomplished the reason for why I created this account. So I am asking for your help on deleting this account. WingZeroAlchemist 22:47, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Zesty isnt on right now, but i can tell you we dont delete accounts around here. Just let it go and forget about it if you dont want to use it anymore. -- MAGNEDETH 22:50, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Bolded text

Okay, I guess I can't fight it anymore, for now. :P

I think that we both know that I hardly bolded most of the text. Maybe in one or two instances, it was indeed not essential, but I still think that in cases, this style improves the article not only aesthetically, but also informatively. For example, check the Battle Tower article which I rebuilt yesterday. I did some tests without bold and italics, and the result was far less pleasant - to me at least.

As for talking to admins, I think we both know that a mere theoretical suggestion would most likely be in vain, especially in this point. So, I believe that I'm entitled to at least take a more try-and-buy route before giving up. I'll keep on using this alternative style - in serpentine, that is. If staff, or any other members of Bulbapedia are against it, they can be my guest - It's not like a vandalize any article, as I touch up what I edit either way, besides using this bit of alternative style.

With every positive mean, and thank you for noting me. :) Ash_Pokemaster 20:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks yourself! --Dermodio 14:33, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Main Page

Hey, what about a Friday 13th theme? --Branfili Talk My edits 06:39, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Dark Pulse

Can you please check out the last edits to it (mine and Dennou Zenshi's). I got rid of his edit to Takuro's Darkrai because bulbapedia's policy states only to write it when the episode comes out, but he undid my edit, saying that because it's hidden, it's okay. I remember someone doing this in the past, and they got in trouble for it. Can you clarify please? Littlmiget123 14:53, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Is the information from a reputable source? If so, I guess it's okay to leave it hidden. At least it isn't visible in the main article, which as you said, would be wrong because it hasn't aired yet. --ZestyCactus 14:59, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
I dunno. I have no idea where he got it from. Would you like me to ask him? Littlmiget123 15:04, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
I'll ask him about it I guess. --ZestyCactus 15:06, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
He says it appeared in the next-episode preview, so it's okay to keep it hidden (I've seen stuff from next-episode previews added in hidden text before) --ZestyCactus 15:16, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Alright then, thanks! Also, in the past, he added information about the Isshu pokemon shown in the preview for Best Wishes. I took them off (even though they were hidden) because 1). There was hardly any information about them at all.

2). We don't even know their English names, let alone who owns them, etc. 3). They would just be in the way when trying to add more Pokemon from recent episodes. That was right to do, right? Littlmiget123 15:20, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that seems a bit gun-jumpy to me, even if it's just hidden text. AFAIK we know basically nothing about the BW episodes, so like you said, I would think it would just get in the way. --ZestyCactus 15:29, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Okay, great. Thanks so much for helping me out, even though you probably have hardly any anime experience at all. ^^; Thanks again! Littlmiget123 15:31, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I don't follow the anime very closely anymore if you couldn't tell ^^' don't worry about it! --ZestyCactus 15:33, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Yeah... that reminds me.

I noticed you edited the Old man glitch article just now (I look at the recent changes on this site way too much), and that reminded me to ask you: Did you ever figure out whether the glitch still works in the French version, or if was it fixed like in the Spanish version? --Blaziken257 20:19, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

You know what, that just occured to me when I was editing the article XD I never quite got that far, I got to about Lavender Town but then HGSS came out and I forgot. :X I really should finish that up, shouldn't I... --ZestyCactus 20:37, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh well, I was just wondering if you knew yet. Just let me know on the forum when you find out. --Blaziken257 01:20, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

You're on the right track! Though, I think you need to make more edits before your userspace is available. (There is a set number of edits you need to make, though I have no idea what it is) I guess just keep editing and surely you will be able to edit your page soon. --ZestyCactus 21:41, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Giratina and the Sky Warrior

I noticed on your To-Do-List you want the Giratina and the Sky Warrior Manga synopsis completed.
