Pictorial representation. It makes it easier to see these things. It's also how things get done on the standard types pages. —darklordtrom 23:22, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Well yes, but because they are all the same with no strengths and no weakesses, couldn't we just have 1 for all of the types?--SnorlaxMonster 02:44, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
It's still best to do things individually. —darklordtrom 02:56, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Whose bright idea was this?!?!

It's bad enough that you people don't consider glitch moves to be notable enough individually, but now you've gone on to the types?! When was this ridiculous course of action voted upon? I don't recall anything of the sort taking place! I would think that something this major would've been announced somewhere! Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch!

So, someone just SUGGESTS it on the Pokémaniac talk page, and you automatically do it?! What about the vote?! This is major! Glitch types are just as notable as the regular ones! I move that we vote upon whether or not this travesty continues. And for the record, as if it wasn't clear enough already, my vote is to undo the merging. Missingno. Master wants YOU!

The current direction of the encyclopedia, Missingno. Master, is to build higher quality articles about each topic. By putting all the glitch types on the same page we're getting a better article with a wider scope. Look at each section. There is one sentence, a box that says it takes normal damage and gives normal damage, and one or two glitch Pokémon with that type. I'm sure you'll agree that one full article is better than fifty tiny sucky articles that need cleanup and expansion and God knows what. And to be frank, the glitch section of the encyclopedia does suck at the moment. We're cleaning it up. If you can help, that'd be great. —darklordtrom 05:57, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
