Sun and Moon update news

Just to let you know that Sun's Franc has been named as Penny in the VIZ translation so the picture needs updating and the cover for volume 7 on the VIZ releases has been revealed so once you get a chance to upload it then I will deal with creating the volume page as usual. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:13, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Done. --Abcboy (talk) 00:30, 15 January 2020 (UTC)


Since it was moved, I've been baffled why XY078 is classified as a main series episode, when to me, it seems like a clear special episode. I saw you having taken part in the moving conversation on the episode's talk page. Why was it moved, and should it be reclassified as a special again? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:53, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

It's not considered a side story episode since it focuses on Ash and co. and aired in the series' main timeslot. All of the XY episodes including the Mega Evolution Specials and the two end-of-series specials are considered part of the main anime series, however. --Abcboy (talk) 15:57, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Edit request: Template:Bag

Could you change:

[[File:Bag {{{1}}} Sprite.png|{{{1}}}]]<noinclude>[[Category:Link templates]]</noinclude>

and make it:

[[File:Bag {{{1}}} Sprite.png|{{{1}}}|link={{{1}}}]]<noinclude>[[Category:Link templates]]</noinclude>

Thank you, –MJLTalk 00:40, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

I'd blank this since it's moot, but Vandal filter 3. –MJLTalk 00:48, 18 January 2020 (UTC)


I have a doubt Abcboy. Can Ash recalling meeting Ho-Oh in the first episode of the anime, be treated as a trivia in SS009. Dhiwakar (talk) 16:32, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

It would probably go in the plot section. --Abcboy (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Abcboy. Dhiwakar (talk) 13:38, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Bot request

With "Leaf (game)" and "Green (game)" being separated into two separate articles, I've changed some links to accommodate the split, but many could still be out there that I'm not noticing. As such, could you make BulbaBot change every "{{ga|Green|Leaf" into "{{ga|Leaf"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:26, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Done. --Abcboy (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Works in progress

Dear Abcboy,

I'm currently working on making some drastic changes to the Pichu Brothers page. While all characters already featured require some added details, there are several Pokémon that are recurring wild Pokémon in the series of Pichu Brother shorts and episodes, but aren't necessarily part of the Pichu Posse like Houndour, Snorlax, Feraligatr, Azurill, Azumarill, Smeargle and Murkrow. So I was thinking of wither creating a new page titled " Pokémon" to feature three main subsections: Pichu Brothers, Pichu Posse, and Other Big Town Pokémon. Or should these non-Pichu Posse members simply be added as sections on the Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime page?

Secondly, I came across a location called "Bloom Canyon", which appeared in the Chronicles episode HS17. I was wondering if you would have any Japanese details for this location and be able to confirm which region it is a part of?PardescanSlowbro (talk) 10:14, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

For the other Pokémon from the Pichu Brothers shorts, it might be worth expanding the Big Town page with that information instead? If you draft up what a separate article might look like I can take a look at it.
The line around 14-15 minutes in just says "in the mountains" in Japanese. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)


Abcboy,must not the number of Rotom be x2 in the section Pokémon in the New series episodes, which are present in Rotom Phones, as there are two phones. - unsigned comment from Dhiwakar (talkcontribs)

If they both appear like in SS003, then yes. For upcoming episodes, only Go's is in the cast lists released before episodes air, and so it's unconfirmed as to whether Ash's will appear or not. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Some questions

Yes, I have some questions for you:

  1. Are the following pages fine for mainspacing:
  2. What programming language is BulbaBot written in?
  3. Will you publish a guide on how to write a bot that will work with MediaWiki?
  4. I have also a bot request. I want BulbaBot to replace all {{YouTubeVid|<video code>|ChickasaurusGL| with {{YouTubeVid|<video code>|name=ChickasaurusGL|Evie|. I'm asking you for this because I think it's too many of these to do this by hand. Also, Chickasaurus renamed herself on YouTube.

Please answer quickly. --TheICTLiker4 18:40, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Both of those don't seem particularly necessary at the moment. BulbaBot primarily runs on the Pywikibot framework. The links still work and aren't broken so I don't think it's necessary. --Abcboy (talk) 20:43, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

M22 Brazilian title

Hi. On the Brazilian press release, M22's title is written three times as Pokémon, o filme: Mewtwo contra-ataca - Evolução and once as Pokémon, o filme: Mewtwo contra-ataca — Evolução (difference: - and —), while on Netflix, its title is Pokémon: Mewtwo Contra-ataca — Evolução. The logo on the press release is very similar to the English one. Should we change the title on the movie's article? Or maybe also include the Netflix one? --RafaelGN (talk) 01:22, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
