This page needs a redirect for people who type Pokémon "pokemon" (I think every single other page has one)! Every time I want to find this page, it tells me no such page exists until I open Word and do Insert > Special Character for the é, then copy-paste it into the search box in place of the non-accented e. Will someone pleeeeeease fix this? ♥ Pokémaniac 02:41, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Done. Also, you can just type in a little bit and the search box will come up with suggestions. To make a redirect, type in the name of the page you wish to redirect, then click the red link at the top of the page, then insert #REDIRECT[[LINK LOCATION]] in it (where LINK LOCATION is the page you want to redirect to). To insert the é, you can hold down Alt and press 0 2 3 3 on the right number pad. Then release Alt and it should insert the character (there is another group of numbers you can use, but that's the one I use). --SnorlaxMonster 07:29, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Unused type combos

Could you add the type combos which have as yet any pokemon appear? You still could use the tables as is, just use "none" for pokemon, then type1 and type2.Astromath 16:09, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

no, theres no point in doing that. -- MAGNEDETH 16:21, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Type Ordering

Can someone please explain why the types are listed in this order:

Normal Fighting Flying Poison Ground Rock Bug Ghost Steel Fire Water Electric Psychic Ice Dragon Dark

The ordering is messed up & completely wrong, the ordering used in the manual of Red/Blue, & the Diamond/Pearl Poketch type matchup application, & probably other official sources is this:

Normal Fire Water Electric Grass Ice Fighting Poison Ground Flying Psychic Bug Rock Ghost Dragon Dark Steel

Since this is the official ordering, should this not be the order Bulbapedia uses? If it is due to the former Physical/Special split then it really needs to be changed as it is 4 years out of date. Vuvuzela2010 21:16, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Ignore this, it has already been answered on the Elemental type page. Vuvuzela2010 11:12, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

number of pokemon by type

on all of the individual type pages there is a count of how many pokemon have that type, but since the count includes both primary and secondary there are a large number of pokemon that are being double counted by those numbers. has anyone gone through and made a count without the secondaries included?

Why do you want to exclude Pokémon that have the type as a secondary type? Primary/secondary are meaningless. --SnorlaxMonster 04:31, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
If "primary"/"secondary" are menacing less then why include them in the list? Tacopill (talk) 00:36, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Need for this page

IMO this page works exactly like a category: it groups Pokémon based on an attribute that is not a primary key. I don't mind "List of Pokémon by X" pages, as long as X is a primary key (or at the very least exclusive to a small group of Pokémon each in the same way as list of Pokémon by height). I think the role of this page is fulfilled by Pokémon by type and this page is unnecessary. --SnorlaxMonster 05:27, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

In my opinion, this pages must stay. There's no need for it to be warned for deletion. It's still useful. jlog3000 11:43, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
Could you justify your opinion more than just "it's still useful"? Why and how is it useful? --SnorlaxMonster 11:59, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
When I meant that it's useful, I meant that the article itself can be expressed how each Pokémon are organized by type, without the necessity of being a category page since category pages cannot be expressed in table forms. jlog3000 12:18, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
This page definitely has a use for anybody who wants a *complete* list of Pokemon sorted by type, or on a mobile connection that reduces the speed of multiple connections. Additionally, if somebody were to make a Bulbapedia application, I could imagine it being used there as well. --Cedrickc (talk) 21:23, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
