IMO, the nicknames section kind of makes things look cramped. It also kind of makes the article cross the line between providing useful information and being a triviafest. And the (necessary) all caps sticks out like a sore thumb and makes it look bad. But I'm mostly concerned about the cramping. What do you guys think? - System Error

Mmm.. it IS a list of in-game trades however. I would like to know what nickname my Mr Mime is getting, and the cramping problem doesn't show up for me (I'm using a widescreen monitor though).. TinaTheKirliaFile:281MS.gif 01:39, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
  • It's not somuch the fact that it takes up a lot of space as it is...well, actually, that pretty much is what it's about. It has little to do with the size of the screen, though. I am using a 1024x768 resolution, and it still looks bad. Maybe it's just that only one of the sections has the nicknames at the moment, though. - System Error 01:46, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
TTEchidna suggested putting the nicks in on Talk:Trade in May. Zurqoxn 01:41, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Yes, I know. However, I designed the formatting tables for the page in August. Fun fact: I did want to put the nicknames into the tables originally, but I couldn't find a way to do so without making it look bad (plus there was the problem of actually getting them). I also wanted to explain some of them too, but there's not really much to explain about many of them (most are plays on the Pokemon's name or something very obvious), and there's really no place on the page for them, so I scrapped that idea even before the nickname one.

A piece of info.

When trading (in diamond/pearl and platinum) -a shiny pokemon: the counterpart received is not shiny. -the IVs of the pokemon obtained are different so are its base stats. twistedpokefan.


I started over with Leafgreen a couple of times, and I noticed that the Pokémon I received always had the same nature. The Nidorino always had a Bold nature, and the Mr. Mime had a Timid nature. Should a column be made for this? Hoolo 14:10, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Rick Astley?

Someone has spammed the page so all pokemon sprites link to Rick Astley(pokemon).
