Sun and Moon update news

Just to let you know that Sun's Franc has been named as Penny in the VIZ translation so the picture needs updating and the cover for volume 7 on the VIZ releases has been revealed so once you get a chance to upload it then I will deal with creating the volume page as usual. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:13, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Done. --Abcboy (talk) 00:30, 15 January 2020 (UTC)


Since it was moved, I've been baffled why XY078 is classified as a main series episode, when to me, it seems like a clear special episode. I saw you having taken part in the moving conversation on the episode's talk page. Why was it moved, and should it be reclassified as a special again? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:53, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

It's not considered a side story episode since it focuses on Ash and co. and aired in the series' main timeslot. All of the XY episodes including the Mega Evolution Specials and the two end-of-series specials are considered part of the main anime series, however. --Abcboy (talk) 15:57, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, –MJLTalk 00:40, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

I'd blank this since it's moot, but Vandal filter 3. –MJLTalk 00:48, 18 January 2020 (UTC)


I have a doubt Abcboy. Can Ash recalling meeting Ho-Oh in the first episode of the anime, be treated as a trivia in SS009. Dhiwakar (talk) 16:32, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

It would probably go in the plot section. --Abcboy (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Abcboy. Dhiwakar (talk) 13:38, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Bot request

With "Leaf (game)" and "Green (game)" being separated into two separate articles, I've changed some links to accommodate the split, but many could still be out there that I'm not noticing. As such, could you make BulbaBot change every "{{ga|Green|Leaf" into "{{ga|Leaf"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:26, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Done. --Abcboy (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Works in progress

Dear Abcboy,

I'm currently working on making some drastic changes to the Pichu Brothers page. While all characters already featured require some added details, there are several Pokémon that are recurring wild Pokémon in the series of Pichu Brother shorts and episodes, but aren't necessarily part of the Pichu Posse like Houndour, Snorlax, Feraligatr, Azurill, Azumarill, Smeargle and Murkrow. So I was thinking of wither creating a new page titled " Pokémon" to feature three main subsections: Pichu Brothers, Pichu Posse, and Other Big Town Pokémon. Or should these non-Pichu Posse members simply be added as sections on the Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime page?

Secondly, I came across a location called "Bloom Canyon", which appeared in the Chronicles episode HS17. I was wondering if you would have any Japanese details for this location and be able to confirm which region it is a part of?PardescanSlowbro (talk) 10:14, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

For the other Pokémon from the Pichu Brothers shorts, it might be worth expanding the Big Town page with that information instead? If you draft up what a separate article might look like I can take a look at it.
The line around 14-15 minutes in just says "in the mountains" in Japanese. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the replies on those. I'll have those two pages done sometime soon. Thanks PardescanSlowbro (talk) 02:55, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
I have several pages which are ready for the mainspace:
In addition to those there is this page, User:PardescanSlowbro/Pokéstar Studios Film Competition Regards, PardescanSlowbro (talk) 12:50, 20 February 2020 (UTC)


Abcboy,must not the number of Rotom be x2 in the section Pokémon in the New series episodes, which are present in Rotom Phones, as there are two phones. - unsigned comment from Dhiwakar (talkcontribs)

If they both appear like in SS003, then yes. For upcoming episodes, only Go's is in the cast lists released before episodes air, and so it's unconfirmed as to whether Ash's will appear or not. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Some questions

Yes, I have some questions for you:

  1. Are the following pages fine for mainspacing:
  2. What programming language is BulbaBot written in?
  3. Will you publish a guide on how to write a bot that will work with MediaWiki?
  4. I have also a bot request. I want BulbaBot to replace all {{YouTubeVid|<video code>|ChickasaurusGL| with {{YouTubeVid|<video code>|name=ChickasaurusGL|Evie|. I'm asking you for this because I think it's too many of these to do this by hand. Also, Chickasaurus renamed herself on YouTube.

Please answer quickly. --TheICTLiker4 18:40, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Both of those don't seem particularly necessary at the moment. BulbaBot primarily runs on the Pywikibot framework. The links still work and aren't broken so I don't think it's necessary. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

M22 Brazilian title

Hi. On the Brazilian press release, M22's title is written three times as Pokémon, o filme: Mewtwo contra-ataca - Evolução and once as Pokémon, o filme: Mewtwo contra-ataca — Evolução (difference: - and —), while on Netflix, its title is Pokémon: Mewtwo Contra-ataca — Evolução. The logo on the press release is very similar to the English one. Should we change the title on the movie's article? Or maybe also include the Netflix one? --RafaelGN (talk) 01:22, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

The Netflix press release has it as "Pokémon: Mewtwo Contra-ataca – Evolução" with another different kind of dash, so I'd lean towards Pokémon.com's for the moment since it appears to be the "complete" title. --Abcboy (talk) 01:33, 25 January 2020 (UTC)


The title seems to be Koharu,Wanapachi and the occasional Gänger. Is it right and if so I'll edit it.--Dhiwakar (talk) 14:09, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

The title as it is already is fine. --Abcboy (talk) 14:27, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Ok, and thank you Abcboy. --Dhiwakar (talk) 16:55, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Go's Scorbunny

Scorbunny is Go's partner,and he can't go without scorbunny in any episodes(unless team rocket steals it or any other circumstances).Then why can't we add it under the section Pokémon in the New series episodes without proof. I understand that every fact needs evidence,but we don't ask evidence for Ash's Pikachu,hope you understand what I mean! - unsigned comment from Dhiwakar (talkcontribs)

New page

Why can't I create new pages, and moreover I don't know how to do it. I was thinking to create the page about Ash's Dragonite, but I can't. Please help me with this problem and thank you. --Dhiwakar (talk) 14:54, 28 January 2020 (UTC) Thank you,the problem was solved by ForceFire,I asked this question to FinnishPokéFan92 but he told me ask a admin and I asked you,but ForceFire involved in the talk and told me the answer. --Dhiwakar (talk) 14:18, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

LGPE model list

Hello. On the Gym guide article you added a statement about the internal data of LGPE using the name "Danpei" for the Gym Guide's model. Do you have the model filename list for these games? I'm not disbelieving, just curious to see the entire list. --Maxim (talk) 08:11, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

It's actually used in the string ID tables, which in LGPE and SwSh give each string that you see in the text dump a particular ID. One of them is "msg_danpei_01_p02_t007_r0201" in t007r0601.tbl. I've uploaded a zip folder of those tbl files here. --Abcboy (talk) 09:19, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Also, wanted to note the anime character is named ダンペー rather than ダンペイ for whatever reason. --Abcboy (talk) 09:26, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Then I'll revert my edit, just to stay safe. Though I still believe and hope that this is the same character. Thanks for the files, also. --Maxim (talk) 12:48, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Meowth - is he a recurring wild Pokémon in the anime?

Hello. I'd recently added Meowth to the Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime page as he is exactly that. He meets the criteria 1) Has been confirmed to be uncaptured 2) Has been featured in more than one episode. My addition took into account his main character status, as it stated that he has been after Ash's Pikachu ever since his debut, plus it had a direct link to his separate page.

However ForceFire removed the entry, arguing that Meowth can only be considered a main character and not a recurring character. I've never said he was a recurring "Character" only a recurring "Pokémon". I don't see why Meowth can't be considered both a recurring wild Pokémon and a main character, it doesn't take anything away from Meowth's main character status.PardescanSlowbro (talk) 08:45, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

I would say that a recurring Pokémon is necessarily a recurring character. I'm not really a fan of further bloating the list either. --Abcboy (talk) 09:19, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
How about Mewtwo of the Original series and Dia's Zeraora?
Also could I get a second opinion regarding some additions to the list of Ash's traveling companions. I'd posted on ForceFire's page, writing that Zoey, Ritchie and Dia are questionable additions as they technically didn't travel to another location with the group, rather they just appeared in a few concurrent episodes in the same location.
And I'd made some changes to BW058 which were undone, however I consider the additions to the major events section to be important to the plot and series overall as Chili left the Striaton Gym, his Pansear learned a new move after being tutured by Cilan, and afterwards Chili decided to return to the Striaton Gym. Thoughts?PardescanSlowbro (talk) 10:53, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Could I please get an answer to the above queries, thanks? PardescanSlowbro (talk) 12:08, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
I don't particularly like bloating it further, and it's on my to-do list to either split or prune that list. Two consecutive episodes isn't really "recurring", and movie Pokémon aren't generally listed or Diancie/Hoopa would probably be there too.
He's not a main character, and the status quo remained unchanged from before/after the episode. --Abcboy (talk) 01:04, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Go's Scyther

I've created a userpage article for . I know it isn't ready for mainspacing but a few of the members who have edited it seem confused over what should be added. Would you mind help letting them know. https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/index.php?title=User:BigDocFan/Go%27s_Scyther&action=history--BigDocFan (talk) 16:22, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Appearances should be noted if they're notable. --Abcboy (talk) 01:04, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Go Park complex

I think GO Park's "In other languages" section should also list the other language names of "GO Park complex", which is how the facility is labeled as upon entering it. Could you help with that? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:30, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

That distinction is only in English, every other language uses "GO Park" for both cases. --Abcboy (talk) 14:55, 5 February 2020 (UTC)


In preparation for SS012, we're in need of a verification if Lance was referred to as an Elite Four member instead of a Champion in the Japanese version of AG097. Do you have access to the Japanese version, or know someone who does? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:50, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

"Ah, he's the Champion of the Elite Four and an investigator for the Pokémon G-Men."

Thank you! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:45, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Pokemon HOME

Why did you remove the parts about the gifted starter pokemon in the mobile version and the pikachu already in the box? Zvoosh25 (talk) 21:42, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

It's already detailed on the List of game-based Pokémon distributions in Generation VIII page. --Abcboy (talk) 21:49, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Move disputes

The Sun & Moon series is over, but I've still got a couple of move-related things to talk about it:

  • Can we confirm that Mallow's Tsareena used Sweet Scent in her second evolution episode? The move's animation and effect are identical to how they were depicted in its earlier stages.
  • In SM117, Shaymin uses Aromatherapy for the first time, that much has been undisputably confirmed. But the "major events" section for the episode doesn't list it. Instead, it's listed as a major event in SM134, where it's first called out loud. Can that major event be moved to SM117's major events, since the revelation really happened there?
  • In SM078, Blacephalon clearly used Mind Blown multiple times by exploding its own head, which is what the move is depicted as in the games. However, there has been dispute whether this is it using a move or it just using a natural ability of its. I'm personally leaning towards it being a move, since I'd personally list this as a move with a unique animation. What's your opinion?

Can you help with these? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:38, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

I also just recalled two more disputed moves:
  • The Alomomola seen in SM033 used a move that looks highly similar to Hydro Pump. In SM081, we see a Hydro Pump used with very similar, if not identical animation. Can this be counted as verification?
  • In SM128, Pikala's Pikachu Bolt uses a move that is, in my opinion, an obvious Electro Ball. If compared with Ash's Pikachu's Electro Ball from earlier in Sun & Moon, the similarities are uncanny, and comparing it with Zap Cannon from SM127 will show that the move animations have some key differences. Do you agree with this evidence?
PS. Sorry for all the posts from the last few dats. I hope they're not too much for you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:53, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
I'm not convinced that being revealed to know a move is necessarily a major event. I'll discuss the rest of these with the other staff. --Abcboy (talk) 16:49, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Population Page

I find your population article very useful to look at, and I was wondering whether it will ever be moved to the full site, or if it can be updated to the USUM, LGPE, and SwSh data! - unsigned comment from Benjia11 (talkcontribs)

I forgot to sign, so now I need to do this to get around the vandal filter -Benjia11 (talk) 15:11, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
This isn't a high priority at the moment, though I may update it eventually. --Abcboy (talk) 16:49, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Charizard's Fly

I recall once seeing Ash's Gym battle with Falkner in Japanese, and I think Ash's command to tell Charizard to use Fly may have in fact been a dub-only thing. Can you verify this? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:47, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

It's not called by the move's name (そらをとぶ), no. --Abcboy (talk) 16:49, 22 February 2020 (UTC)


M22 is still listed as unaired in the "Upcoming anime" list, even though it's been out for eight hours now. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:11, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
