Can't there be a picture?

Why isn't there a picture on here? There should be a pic, since her appearance is confirmed, right? - unsigned comment from Mr. Guye (talkcontribs)


Where has it said she is a Bug-Type specialist? --FREEdome (talk) 02:23, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Korean name for Viola

Her Korean name is 비올라 Biolla.

  • Korean transliteration of "Viola" (bearing in mind there is no "V" sound in Korean...) -- Nick15 (talk) 00:54, 12 July 2013 (UTC)


Should it be noted in the trivia that as a amateur photographer and bug type specialist that this combination was likely chosen do to the pun it generates in the term Shutterbug? --Stephini (talk) 20:49, 23 July 2013 (UTC)


  • Is it possible that Viola could be derived from 'voila' in part, due to the French theme, or am I looking too deeply into this?--ShinyPatch (talk) 22:31, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
I can't say whether that was actually any kind of factor in it, but for whatever it's worth, the same thought's occurred to me. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 22:39, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
Unless the word has something to do with photographers, then you're looking too deeply into it. Ataro (talk) 22:41, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Trainer Class

Should Viola's current anime Battle Chateau title "Duchess" be added to her Trainer Class? Yamitora1 (talk) 17:34, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Adding Gym Leader PSS Icons

For as long as I saw the Gym Leaders (and E4 as well as Champion) got PSS icons, I wanted them to be added to their pages at the buttom, instead of using their ingame intro artworks. The icons would fit more into how the previous Gym Leaders had their overworld sprites at the buttom of their pages. I might be alone on this, but it would look very good IMO if they could be used!

--Mattii (talk) 16:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

While I totally agree, could I ask where you got these? We're currently doing our best to ensure that our sprites and other XY materials are not taken from other websites. Did you rip these yourself? - Chosen of Mana 17:22, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Shiny Caterpie on Tumblr shared them, he/she has a capture card and often posts GIFs of shiny Pokémon. They said they were for anyone to use, since they are not easy to get (and isn't found anywhere else) --Mattii (talk) 20:34, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
The section on sharing is located here, but I will sum up two things. One, anyone can reblog their GIFs with their permission. Two, credit will need to be given to Shiny Caterpie somewhere. I would like to note that the rules only mention about reblogging the images, not about using them on a site other than Tumblr. --Super goku (talk) 22:08, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I think the best thing to do in this case is to ask the ripper for permission. We'd probably want a higher-up with a Tumblr account to ask. - Chosen of Mana 20:52, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Has this issue been resolved? Seeing as there's no credit on the files, I'm assuming not. Which begs the question: shouldn't these be deleted until permission is acquired? glikglak 17:02, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure about this, I could be wrong, but couldn't the icons be obtained from the PGL? If that is true, we wouldn't have to worry as much since we get stuff like dream world artwork and official artwork off Nintendo, Pokémon, and GameFreak websites all the time. Yamitora1 (talk) 13:48, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

If you change your icon and use Game Sync, yeah they'll show up. Unlike the ORAS icons, no one uses the XY icons, since they have custom trainer icons. So somebody'd have to get them on their own account. glikglak 21:26, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Right, so after a few days of Game Syncing repeatedly, I've found that you actually can't get these from the PGL. It always defaults to your Trainer icon, regardless of what you chose for the PSS. glikglak 00:38, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Those and more are can be found here. I previously asked Kaphotics about resources that might be used on Bulbapedia, and that's one place he pointed me to. I'm not rightly sure if that's a specific resource that staff have approved yet, though. Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:06, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Someone just unhid these PSS icons. I'm not of a mind to re-hide them just to be pedantic. Instead, if staff have any problems with those files being used, they may want to speak up now. It should also be possible to upload the files from the link I provided above (which are freely usable, as opposed to the current files for which permission seems to be questionable) over the previous files if necessary. Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:55, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
Since we didn't have explicit permission to use those old files without credit, I have deleted them. Tiddlywinks, if you really have permission to freely upload the files from your source, you may go ahead and upload them. Thanks! --ZestyCactus 03:17, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Chateau original outfit

How about adding an original outfit in Battle Chateau? Raymond 08:14, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

What? In her anime section? We don't usually note outfit changes for non-main characters, since they happen so rarely that there's no real point. Ataro (talk) 08:27, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
