Hi there!

If you know a fix that needs to be made, go right ahead and fix it: this page isn't (or oughtn't be) protected. But if you can't fix it, for example because a protected template is broken, please still report it here! --Eskay 09:41, 9 October 2010 (UTC)


Ought we made those available by Radar alone be "Ra"? It'd be easy enough to add... TTEchidna 00:40, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Glow ahead. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links 00:48, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I think the templates need to be changed before we can add stuff like "Ra" for Radar, and we probably need a "W" for Walker. Also, what about swarms in HGSS? They're currently listed as "C" but shouldn't they be "S"? Dragoness 08:09, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
The swarms have now been marked, thanks. What's a good plan for changing the template? --Eskay 09:58, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Disponibility for Hoenn and Sinnoh Sound

Put disponibility for Hoenn and Sinnoh Sound, please!--Ash 22:21, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Huh? I don't follow. I'm pretty sure "disponibility" is availability, but what are Hoenn and Sinnoh Sound? (Was under HGSS heading) --Eskay 09:41, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps this is what Ash is looking for? It looks like the already existed when I made this post, but shouldn't it have its own icon? --Enervation 03:13, 30 August 2011 (UTC)


I've pruned this talk page of resolved issues, as of this timestamp. With thanks to LaprasBoi, ht14, and JDigital, for adding issues which I claim that I've resolved. --Eskay 09:41, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

If we want an archive page or something, it's certainly possible to restore one from the history. --Eskay 10:18, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Black and White

Looks like it is possible to catch some, but not all, earlier-generation Pokémon again? So we'll need to extend the templates for the earlier sections to allow input of B&W data. Also a potential opportunity to extend the template functionality as discussed above under Radar. --Eskay

We may want a third column for Dream World availability, if that's stable, per discussion at Template_talk:Availability. --Eskay 20:01, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Also remember that there's something new besides the Dream World: the PokéShifter . - unsigned comment from EzekielMaple (talkcontribs)
What's the point of having things like Poké Transfer and Pal Park if they aren't used? They seem close enough to trade anyway. Also, what if the Pokémon can be obtained with more than one method. For example, Qwilfish can be obtained in both rippling water (catch) and the Pokémon Dream World.

Adding Pokéwalker info

Since Dream World info is planned to be added, and it is not strictly part of the games, how come there's no mention about adding Pokéwalker info? Blueapple128 04:01, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Well, I don't believe that the Pokémon Dream World, the Pokéwalker, and events are truly in-game, so I'm proposing a move to List of Pokémon by availability. --Enervation 03:18, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Event Pokémon inconsistency

I was under the impression that Ev stood for in-game event (GS Ball, Navel Rock, Flower Garden, etc). However, the chart lists Mewtwo as Ev in Black and White, where there is no in-game event for Mewtwo. Does Ev now stand for any Pokémon obtained in an event download? If so, there's a hell of a lot of editing that needs to be done to the Gen II, Gen III and Gen IV sections to reflect all of the event downloads that were released for them, too (including releases by Toys R US, Gamestop etc).

I don't mind which way it is (although I'd prefer the former). It's just the lack of consistency that's confusing. Pacter 17:03, 12 December 2011 (UTC)


Is it just me, or does it really needs a cleanup? The legend is getting slightly messy. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:37, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

I agree, and I have some ideas for it:
  • I don't see anyone on the page marked with a P or PS, so we should just get rid of that and denote all transfers with T since it's basically the same thing.
  • Dream World should have it's own column under Generation V, that way we can simply write C, E, and B under it.
  • Snagged Pokemon in Colo/XD could be marked Sn so that it won't be confused with Swarm, or just use C since there's hardly any difference.
  • Since we have Dream Radar marked I think it would also be appropriate to add a W for Pokewalker exclusive Pokemon in the HG/SS columns.
  • The event Pokemon are a mess. I think we should only use Ev to denote the typical Event Pokemon as well as any Pokemon found through an in-game event that is triggered by either an event item or presence of another event Pokemon. I can't even verify many of the Pokemon currently marked, some information simply seems lost to history.
  • I've never found evidence of Mew being released at any event during Generation II so it'd have to be traded from a Generation I game that received it.
So those are just my main issues. If nobody objects, I'll start work on improving it soon. EV Love (talk) 23:01, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, Mew was distributed here, but you can't see it due to limitations. --Abcboy (talk) 01:26, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Don't forget to roundy it too. --Abcboy (talk) 04:44, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
It's bad idea to replace Snagging with C, as C is used for Poké Spot Pokémon. Also deleted Pal Park, as nothing uses it (and aside from event Pokémon, the only that could use that are Regis). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:10, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Okay well I tidied up, fixed a few errors and added Pokéwalker info. I might start on the Dream World column soon since in places such as here it has it's own box with a pink styling, so a column to match that will do. EV Love (talk) 04:29, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Need help with that? I could add it for you. --Abcboy (talk) 04:45, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah go ahead, remember to change the Avail template for each gen. EV Love (talk) 18:27, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
