Kyurem actually did use Glaciate. On here, it says Glaciate is a more powerful version of Icy Wind. Kyurem blew a wind at Ash before he attacked with Dragon Pulse. I believe the blast of wind was Glaciate. - unsigned comment from Yveltal-Lugia (talkcontribs)

Brawly's Hariyama's gender

This has been bugging me for a while. Was Hariyama's gender confirmed to be male officially in Pokémon Adventures? I saw it placed on its own article and on Brawly's page before it disappeared/got removed. Not saying that you did it or anything, I was just asking you as you may know about this.

BW090 ENG dub and Jessie's Wobbuffet's gender

They didn't feature the Who's That Pokémon? segment in the English dub for an unknown reason. I know Garchomp was chose to this one, just like in Japan, but I can't edit it until they show it again in future airings. It's Garchomp for sure! Even if they show it again, I swear it'll be a Garchomp. And Jessie's Wobbuffet is a male, I discovered its gender, it doesn't wearing a lipstick on its mouth. Pikachu65 14:40, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

That doesn't confirm anything. Wobbuffet existed before Gender differences. Ataro (talk) 14:57, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Right. It does make sense. Pikachu65 15:43, 1 December 2012 (UTC)


Is it absolutely confirmed Walker is Falkner's father in Spe? And where, if yes? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:20, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Trivia on Giga Drain

Why isn't the fact that Paul is the only one who has commanded the use of Giga Drain notable in Paul's page or the Giga Drain page? I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 13:23, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Because it isn't notable at all. Pointing out that only one person's Pokemon has used a move is unnecessary. He's not even the only one to do that. Nurse Joy's the only Trainer with a Pokemon to use Minimize, but it's not on the trivia. Ataro (talk) 13:30, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't see the point in not putting it. I agree, it's not vitally important, but it is a fact and deserves to be known by others. Until you give me a good enough reason why it should not be included, I will not drop the subject. That includes Nurse Joy's using Minimize. I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 14:45, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
It's redundant. There is no point stating in the trivia section information which becomes obvious when looking at the list of Pokémon that have used the move in the anime. If we allowed this kind of trivia, the trivia sections would be twice as long as the rest of the article and no-one would read them because of that. Werdnae (talk) 18:37, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
I guess that makes sense..... I had never seen that list before anyway. And Ataro, you could have just told me that instead. I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 19:17, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Minor request

Hey Ataro, I saw from your tags that you're a Pokémon Colosseum/Pokémon XD/Generation III/Generation IV/Generation V player. I would like to request something relevant to the Poké Transfer page... currently, the location data for Pokémon from Orre is empty... I'm pretty sure it's "a faraway place" as seen in Pal Park, but could you confirm that this is also the case for Poké Transfer? Thanks in advance!! ht14 16:17, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Correction: "distant land". I'm thinking of something else. ht14 16:19, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry... one final thing. I'm also curious about how Nature Power and Camouflage would work in Pokémon XD and Colosseum... and I might have more questions later but seriously, thanks so much!! ht14 16:28, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Volume 15 cover

Okay I really don't want to get into any arguments, and especially no edit wars. Why did you delete the picture I uploaded onto the Volume 15 page? That's the recently released Volume 15 cover from Viz and this site uses Viz's cover for the page pictures over all others. Arceus101 (talk) 02:29, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Because I already uploaded that pic two days ago. It may not look like here on the Pedia, but that's because it takes a while for it to change here. Check on the Archives to see it. Ataro (talk) 02:33, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Al and Harry controversy

Okay let's not get into any edit wars here and try to solve this out (I was confused too when I saw what I did). The ponytail guy serves under Koga because he uses poison-types in Yellow and GSC chapter and he captured Articuno for Koga to use. The non-ponytail guy uses psychic types in Yellow and GSC and he controlled Moltres which was Sabrina's bird. The thing that confused me and it looks like it's confusing you too is how ponytail seems to be controlling Girafarig in GSC. But look again at the Yellow chapter where the Elite trio appeared and look at the flow chart where it depicts those three serving under the gym leaders. Ponytail dude is shown with Koga and the other dude is shown with Sabrina. I checked with the guys on Serebii forum and we came to the conclusion that the writers made a big mistake by switching Al and Harry between Yellow and GSC and they sorta cleared it up on the official site by not really giving Girafarig a definite owner. Oh and let me point out that your edit on the TRET page makes a contradiction. It lists ponytail guy as having the Pokemon that the non-ponytail guy had in the Moltres chapter. Look closely. Do you see what I'm saying? Arceus101 (talk) 06:00, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Here's the link to the forum topic that I posted a couple months ago. See if it helps you understand what I'm saying. Arceus101 (talk) 06:05, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Look, I don't know what Kusaka is doing, but what I do know is that this page quite explicitly states that dark hair = Ken, spiky hair = Al, and ponytail = Harry. Same for their original name revealing. Something needs fixing. Ataro (talk) 07:08, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes I know that ponytail is Harry and spiky hair is Al. But what I'm saying is that it looks like Kusaka might have switched Al and Harry in the GSC chapter because Al is using poison-types and Harry is using psychic-types. And you're listing Harry's Pokemon in the RBG chapter under Al's profile and vice-versa. Arceus101 (talk) 18:04, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Pokémon Adventures volume 43

Have you got access to it yet? Basically wondering about those rounds if they are in the same order as ABW01-ABW04 if so we can at least move those four pages I think. --ZestyCactus 18:34, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Shin's page

I believe this page is ready to be mainspaced. PattyMan 21:00, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Not with that wall of text, it isn't. Space out the paragraphs first. Ataro (talk) 21:02, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Fixed them. PattyMan 21:44, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
I wanted you to mainspace the page, since it is under your username, unless permission is given otherwise. PattyMan 03:24, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Actually, I'll move it. PattyMan 03:24, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Regarding Ninfia

I think you should also lock the one with the title "Ninfeon" as well, just in-case any fans may create a speculation page on an English name that hasn't officially been announced by The Pokémon Company International.

Just wanted to let you know!

Thanks! —Platinum Lucario (talk) 12:19, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

"Don't touch that"

Wow, that's not a great attitude for someone supposed to be an administrator... TheChrisD RantsEdits 15:24, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

PS461 - PS464

Hey Ataro, those four rounds have titles that are "VS Whatever" listed as the English title. Where did those titles come from? Like are they from that suspected VIZ Media volume coming soon or what? Just wondering... --ZestyCactus 01:27, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Well, Chuang Yi doesn't try creating their own titles anymore, do they? Ataro (talk) 02:05, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
? so it's from Chuang Yi? I thought they were only on the Platinum chapter :S --ZestyCactus 21:08, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
I was talking about how they just keep the standard "VS X" instead of trying to come up with their own titles. Ataro (talk) 21:16, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Okay, that's fine. Just so you know I will be moving the VIZ Media round titles back to the top alongside the "VS. Whatever" titles, since they are from the official English version I would prefer them at the top rather than a trivia line. Let me know if there's any problems, thanks. --ZestyCactus 22:33, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, saying that they're from the VIZ Media translation implies that they used those titles for the volume 43 version, even though they haven't translated that version yet. Wouldn't it make more sense to alter the text so that it says something like "Pokémon Black and White volume 1 version"? Ataro (talk) 22:45, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
tbh that isn't the assumption i would have come to, though i do understand your point now. my concern is that volume 43 being released doesn't suddenly erase the mini-volumes. i'm getting so frustrated trying to make sense of all this u__u first of all, what do you know about this one? is it a volume-sized compilation of the mini-volumes or do you think it's a translation of volume 43? that's another reason i'm hesistant, but no matter what, Chuang Yi is eventually going to get to volume 43 anyway and whatever else and there are differences between the Japanese volume versions and the Japanese magazine versions and and and *brain shorts out* long story short, I'd be comfortable with "Pokémon Black and White volume 1 version" for now since that seems like the middle ground. :P --ZestyCactus 23:13, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
By the way, read over this and let me know if I missed anything. --ZestyCactus 23:21, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I am still waiting. KyleRGiggs 07:21, 2 April 2013 (UTC)


What do you think of this? Is he right or wrong? PattyMan 14:34, 17 February 2013 (UTC)


The image I uploaded for DP185 is not blurry, meets the 4x3 ratio, and is a lot less awkward. Why did you revert it? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 15:20, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

I fail to see how the image is better. 1) The scene looked bad. Gible being attacked by a Gyro Ball? That's not very good. 2) Look at image closer, then you'll see that it's even blurrier than the previous image. Ataro (talk) 00:20, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
You would rather have it stay as a little better quality but a more awkward picture than a little worse quality but a less awkward picture? I think Shuckle being bit in the ass is very weird, but Gible facing an incoming attack is a lot less weird. Look, you're an administrator, I'm not. You make the rules. If you really want the picture to stay so awkward, I have no right to argue. However, I just want to make sure you understand that the one I uploaded bypasses the current one in terms of awkwardness by a long shot. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 15:16, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Pocket Monsters RS Voume six

My sincere thanks to you for uploading a higher quality image after I edited the page and added a Bad Picture banner at my own dismay. I know I shouldn't complain about low quality images on BP, so thank you for uploading the image. PokefanR (talk) 03:49, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Ash's Buizel

Well he is the only one of Ash's Sinnoh pokemon that currently is a single-type. Turtwig, Grotle, and Chimchar evolved. Also that Buizel itself as a species cannot evolve into a dual-type pokemon. AeroWind (talk) 09:40, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

It doesn't change the fact that he still owned them at one point. Regardless of their current forms, at one point in their lives, they were single-typed. Ataro (talk) 09:45, 12 March 2013 (UTC)


Do Pokémon in Pokémon Adventures deserve such subheaders such as the ones called FireRed & LeafGreen chapter and Yellow chapter in their articles? PattyMan 00:23, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Can you give an example? Ataro (talk) 00:26, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I saw on Pika's and Saur's pages that they lack the subheaders under the history section whereas Mewtwo and Deoxys have them under the history section. PattyMan 00:32, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Blasty and Jiggly have the subheaders too. PattyMan 00:39, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Hmm...In the case of Mewtwo, he should probably have it since his telepathy pretty much makes him a "unique" character in his own right, but I think it'd be best to just remove them all. Ataro (talk) 00:50, 15 March 2013 (UTC)


Okay well first of all, considering that you're Lolipiece you should have the sources. Second, I asked a couple people on forums and those were the results I got. Okay fine, lol I guess they're not strong sources so I'll wait for you to figure it out for yourself. :P Arceus101 (talk) 18:10, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Protection of M16

What's the problem now? Also, please remove the number of Genesect, the Genesect Army is consist of five Genesect with a Red one. No need to repeat that information. KyleRGiggs 07:24, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Shrug. I'll talk about it later. Also, no. We always list how many of x Pokemon appear in whatever episode, chapter, movie, etc... Ataro (talk) 18:34, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
Totally different cases. How to identify those five are all related to Genesect Army? Sorry, I could argue that one from Genesect Army and four from unknown places, if I am that so harsh. KyleRGiggs 17:43, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Also, it's the first time to include more than one same species in one species team. Please be reconsidered. KyleRGiggs 17:46, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

PMD4 Dungeon List

Please explain why you undid the list I made on that page?  I think that the list adds nicely to the page and might be helpful to some people. Also, I corrected the Daybreak Mountain to Daybreak Ridge, because Daybreak Mountain redirects to the latter anyway and it's the localized name for it.Raykyogrou0 (talk) 15:33, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello, anybody there?? Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 15:13, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Prevalent use of unaccented e's

Sorry about not talking to you about this earlier, I was preoccupied when trying to regain my userspace rights and upload images on the archives. But now that I have some time, I have noticed that you have not been using accented e's when spelling things like Pokémon or Pokéball. It is clearly stated that spelling "Pokémon" or anything else that has one or more accented e's with unaccented e's is against the rules. I have warned you about this before but you did not listen. In the future, please remember to use accented e's. Thanks. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 14:02, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

...Excuse me? Ataro (talk) 20:13, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
You do not use accented e's when spelling things like Pokémon or Pokéball. Here's an example. When you reverted the image I uploaded for Stephan's Sawk, you spelled "Pokemon" instead of "Pokémon". Anything that has the "Poké" prefix must be spelled with an accented e (é). the great MIKORO (talk to me) 22:29, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Uh, no. That only applies to editing in articles. In casual conversation—like on talk pages or edit messages—there's nothing wrong with it. Ataro (talk) 22:35, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
What? Where does it say that? I haven't seen anything that says that. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 11:03, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

BW121 image

I don't want to change the image and possibly step on someone's toes, so I'll ask here: what do you think of 

this image
for BW121's image? It has Ghetsis in it, so it still meets the standard set by the current image's initial uploader, but it actually shows the ceremony itself as well. --The Great Butler (talk) 03:28, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
I was actually considering doing that one, too, but I felt the other one felt more epic fitting an Episode N finale. Plus, we can use the other image somewhere else (once it's in png format, that is). Ataro (talk) 04:19, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Original and Japanese?

I've been working in creating redirects for the Manga chapters of Pokémon Adventures and I've been using the list of rounds to do so. But in the HGSS Chapter list says that the round PS444, who is called "VS Togepi" in the original, is called "VS Dragonite" and several others since Platinum chapter have these Japanese-Original titles even though that japanese are original. But my real doubt is: Should I make redirects for both titles or just the japanese ones that are the same for english?--Igor (talk) 16:51, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

About Let's Join Hands#Ending Animation

May I ask why the references to the global link and PK25 were edited out by you? Thanks. Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 01:55, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Because there's nothing really indicating it's a Global Link reference. To me, it's clearly to show that they're messaging each other despite being so far away. And what makes you think it's a scene from PK25? Yes, it's a clear reference to it, but not a scene. Ataro (talk) 02:18, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
The fact that it's similar to the background on the global link website? And I never said it was a scene from PK25, it's a still image about PK25. Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 09:55, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Need help removing an old user page

I'm sorry if this isn't the place to put this, I don't have much experience editing wiki's and saw that you're an admin. But awhile ago I made a user pageuser:rhytwo for an old account of mine. The problem is I was 10 when I made it and included my real name. So now when you look my name up on google this page, which I find embarrasing shows up and I can't remember the email address I used or the password. If you need proof of who I am. I can show you some old accounts on varius websites with the username "rhytwo" that I can access. If you can't do anything about this, could you help me figure out a way to get it down?

Question regarding merchandise articles

I had been planning to make an article concerning Bandai's D-Arts line of highly-articulated Pokémon collectibles, which would require the uploading of images.  Will my account work on the Archives, or do I need to make a separate account?  Also, as I am a stickler for image sourcing and licensing, what is the image policy regarding the upload of promotional images?  Is there a sourcing template?  If not, I intend to list the source of any image I upload in some fashion similar to what I am used to on Wookieepedia, and I would like to know if such sourcing is permissible.

Also, when adding citations and references to articles, as I had not been able to find an example, do you use the Template:Tl template?  Or do you have a different referencing protocol?

In regards to a product article, I had seen various examples, but they were short and vague, with only a few articles going into any sort of specific product detail.  What I intend to cover in the article are details concerning product release and distribution, price range, and some details on the figures themselves, mainly the articulation.  As I only own one of the figures, the primary example for most of those details will be the Mewtwo figure.  Any details concerning the Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur figures will be gleaned from product descriptions on Amazon, and through my various sources.  Is there a specific format for merchandise articles?  SnorlaxMonster said that there was not, and most articles that I've seen follow only a basic format of short description, followed by a gallery.

I wish to double-check this before I begin drafting up the article, as I want to make sure that I am doing it correctly.  Thanks. Trak Nar (talk) 19:03, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

I know nothing about merchandise. You're gonna have to ask someone else. And yes, your account will work there. Ataro (talk) 19:59, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Alright, thanks.  I'll check the history of those articles and ask someone from there.  Good to know that my account will work on the archives, though.  I shall hunt down and double-check the image policy in regards to sourcing... Trak Nar (talk) 20:14, 23 June 2013 (UTC)


I noticed that an article for Grimsley's Bisharp was created but with very little info on the manga side. Do you think the article should stay or not? PattyMan 18:21, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

No. Not at all. There's nothing notable about it. Ataro (talk) 18:30, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Volume 44 subtitles

Hey Ataro, sorry for the delay but here are the subtitles from volume 44. I was lazy to do scans, so I took pictures on my phone XD

Hope that's good enough for you to work with. *_* I should be getting Volume 45 soon so we can do those then when I get it. I'll also do the scans of the opening pages in the next couple days - been kinda busy with work so didn't get a chance yet, sorry :( --ZestyCactus 23:54, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Moves policy

Is the ruling with determining a Pokémon's moves in a manga movie adaptation the same with any manga? PattyMan 00:35, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes. Ataro (talk) 00:36, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Got it. I saw on Arceus's page that it was not using Judgment or Hyper Beam so that got removed. PattyMan 00:39, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Opinion on something

In my copy of the recent release for Ruby and Sapphire, Ruby's Castform is not given a nickname. One shred of evidence is that during the part between listings it is just listed as Castform. This is shown once in that book. Should the change be made on the page for Ruby's team? If you want to wait until the beginning of September when the next book comes out I am willing to wait until then for more evidence to pop up. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:44, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I'm aware of that. No. It stays as Popo (we do this for Blasty, who doesn't have a Viz nickname either). They probably didn't put a nickname because it doesn't really make much sense for it to have one because Ruby was last seen unconscious. Ataro (talk) 00:51, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Okay. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:58, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

You win.

You made me leave JB's Gallery, and now you're forcing me to leave Bulbapedia. I love this place, and what it can do to Pokémon fans, is your rejoice in treating people like inferiors so huge you need to do this to me? This is the only place left in the internet where I could work for the Pokémon fandom, what I wanted since I was little.

Maybe it's good for me, now that I'm grown, one less responsibility, so I can go take care of my life. Could you at least don't ruin the pages I created/extended, i. e. Pokédex holder, Blind boy and Variant Pokémon?

Congratulations, Lolipiece! You're ruling as the one of the biggest bastards I ever met. |) u |( e ® 17:20, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Ghastly image

Why aren't we using this image for the ghastly sugi art? 20100831014855%21092Gastly.png It's a higher resolution than the current one. Jabberwockxeno (talk) 22:53, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Also, it seems the file search is broken. When I search for "rotom", or "479" in multimedia or in advanced with file checked, there are no results. Jabberwockxeno (talk) 22:56, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Because the current picture is clearer than that picture, and if you want to search for images, you have to search on the Archives, since all images are posted on there. — Reshi643 23:26, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Legendaries being genderless

There are several inconsistencies with labeling the anime Legendary Pokémon's genders as unknown as several articles have them listed as genderless so I think that there should be a discussion if their genders should be officially left as unknown. PattyMan 01:32, 14 July 2013 (UTC)


Cartoon Network has the title as Farewell, Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures!, but on the List of anime episodes, it's Farewell, Unova!. My question is, which title is the correct one? — Reshi643 00:44, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Volume 45 subtitles

Hi Ataro, like before I have Volume 45 now so here are photos of the subtitles. If you are able to do the kanji for me again that would be awesome thank you ^o^

Also, they f'ed up the round numbering!! Volume 44 is PS465-PS471. But Volume 45 has PS472 numbered as PS471, and onward they're all wrong off by one! At first I thought I had messed up the titles... but nope... looks like they messed up lol. Also sorry for being slow on the scans. I'll have them up for both 44 and 45 sometime soon :) --ZestyCactus 18:50, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

One of them is missing, apparently. Ataro (talk) 22:33, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Also, are they put in the correct order? The one for "VS Leavanny" translates into..."Lost Child", so...wouldn't that be for "VS Zorua?" Ataro (talk) 22:37, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I think I messed it up. I was in a rush cause time caught up with me and I had to go to work. I double-checked all of them. The ones that are done so far are correct. Here is the rest:
Again, I am sorry for getting it all mixed up :( --ZestyCactus 03:42, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Sir, I created the Koruni page but now I'm not able to edit. Can I not also edit basic things in it?--Viv (talk) 17:48, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Don't call me Sir. I protected the page because it's new information and that can get a little crazy. Here's the thing. During times like these, we do not just make a page. First, the page gets made in the userspace, then an admin checks the page and moves it to the mainspace after determining that it's good enough. Ataro (talk) 17:51, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Just curious...

I see you undid my edits regarding a deeper description of the Mega stones. Now here's the thing: did you do that because the in-game description didn't show up, or just because? I'm asking this due to the fact that I actualy wrote the missing parameter, but as I specified after on the talk page, it didn't show up because of the fact that the template is outdated, while asking the staff to update it. So, is it the first option? Or are we done for now? TheOriginalOne 22:15, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

I did it because the games aren't out yet, and it'd be better to wait until they come out. There's not that much info on the Mega Stones right now for it to be needed. Once more info is available, it'll be added back. Ataro (talk) 23:06, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Lenora's apron presents in BW126 International version

I watched this episode about Oshawott island, and you know what I've discovered? Lenora's apron during the flashback is presented in international version! She's wearing an apron that it shouldn't be here at all in international version. What do you think about this? Pikachu65 19:07, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Why are you telling me this? I haven't even watched the dub in a while. Ataro (talk) 21:16, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Just wanted to let you know...

I created a soft redirect for Hood Man; I had permission from Zesty that it was ok. I'm not sure when his identity is revealed, so it'll need to be cleaned up of course, but maybe that could be reflected on his page. ht14 04:09, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Why? This is pointless. Ataro (talk) 05:15, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

GRT's English titles

I had no idea where those English titles came from tbh, since they're not in the volume. So just now I went and double-checked my old Nintendo Power volumes and it seems like those titles were used in the magazine version (the title pages look different there). Guess that should be mentioned in the articles ^^' --ZestyCactus 01:48, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Honestly, the way they're written make me even wonder if they're even meant to be titles at all. They look like they're just little quotes and messages just like you would see in a Japanese magazine chapter. Ataro (talk) 01:53, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Possible error

In the VIZ translation of PS218 while Ruby explains his mix-up between Wally yand Wanda, he says "She looks so much like him. And she wasn't wearing glasses either...". Is this an error? I think it is but I wanted to make sure before adding it as an error. What does the CY/Japanese version say? Արիանո 15:59, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

The pronoun should be "I", not "she". So yes, it is an error. Ataro (talk) 16:34, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Okay. Could you add in the article? I'm not sure if I'm able to express it in a way that would make sense (as I'm not a native speaker of English). Արիանո 16:47, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Edit War

This user just changed the picture after you changed it back on Lucario's page. I'm sensing an edit war. Pokedex493 (talk) 17:21, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

BW episodes DVD

I heard that sometimes, when TV airs BW episodes, some scene includes some animation errors that cannot be corrected. But some of them can be corrected on Japanese DVD releases, like animation errors, glitched, backgrounds and chaacter designs. I'm glad the episode BW116 in international version fixed two errors, and now those two fixed errors are included on Japanese DVD, too. But some of the errors cannot be fixed on Japanese DVD, I don't know why. Any question?  15:02, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Question about your EP001 edit

--PNJスターデオの月山ニ郎 (talk) 20:38, 28 September 2013 (UTC)What edit did you make to EP001? I want to see it because it may be something I didn't know. I made an edit in "Dub edits" on the same page recently.

Buoh's Viz Name

Just confirmed with the latest volume that his Viz name is Bo, and have moved the page after checking this carefully, and made other appropriate edits on the related pages. I will need your help with the pictures though since images and that kind of stuff are out of my league. -Tyler53841 (talk) 19:40, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Also the nickname for White's Solosis has been changed to Sally. Every other nickname aside from Vullaby's is confirmed to be unchanged. -Tyler53841 (talk) 20:21, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Oh, thank you. I'll get to moving. Ataro (talk) 20:23, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
I am going to get to work on Diamond and Pearl and Platinum's new chapters. If you have the time can you go through the rest of the Black and White chapter pages and update with the new english names? Also check out my trivia piece for ABW39 and update it if you have to since having more than one set of eyes will be helpful for this. -Tyler53841 (talk) 20:27, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Er, am I to assume Sird's name was not changed? Ataro (talk) 20:54, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

I'll get back to you on that in a few minutes. -Tyler53841 (talk) 20:58, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Confirmed, VIZ did not change his name. -Tyler53841 (talk) 20:59, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

One last thing I need to ask is for the deletion of the Buoh talk page I posted for deletion earlier. -Tyler53841 (talk) 21:51, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

N (Adventures) page

Talk page policy

Blindly removing a message on a talk page because it is in reply to an old comment is not the correct way to follow the talk page policy. The comment made on Talk:Fiery Dance (move) was answering a question on the talk page that was never answered. To quote the talk page policy, replies to talk page comments are perfectly fine when an "old conversation is still relevant". Unanswered questions are one of the many, many ways that keep conversations relevant. Please don't go around removing comments for no good reason again. It's bad practice.

Mega Evolution

They cannot transform into different form, they can temporarily evolve into second final forms with non-consumable Mega Stones. - unsigned comment from Samueljoo (talkcontribs)

Moves in the manga

I've been trying to follow the moves policy relating with moves being used in the manga. If one version announced a move and the other one didn't, such as what happened with Jiggly's Tri Attack, it counts, right? PattyMan 00:55, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

If you're talking about it not being announced in the Japanese version, it was. It was just said in two different word balloons. Ataro (talk) 01:49, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
I was referring to differences between VIZ and CY, but Japanese and English is fine. PattyMan 02:15, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Page On Bulbasuar

Is the reason you deleted the part I added on Bulbasuar in trivia because it already on the page on Bulbasuar's Mysterious Garden?  That seems right to me, but maybe we should show that episode on the anime section for bulbasuar.--Ethan7 (talk) 04:08, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Clemont & Chespin Pic

May I ask, why did you revert my edit on the Clemont and Chespin.png file? I thought that we don't use such large pics? or do we? I'm confused xD--Omojuzeforever (talk) 13:05, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

It's mostly personal preference, but I find the images we usually use to be pretty boring, so I wanted to switch it up a little. Ataro (talk) 13:09, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Suicune's gender

I got Suicune's gender here under the trivia/errors section of the page when I edited Crystal's page, incase you were curious. Something probably tells me that genderless Pokémon in any manga are still genderless even with the male/female pronouns unlike the anime. PattyMan 04:55, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Ataro, I'm sorry to butt in here, but I saw you revert the edit so I checked in my copy of the manga and read all of PS122 and there was no use of gendered pronouns that I could see regarding Suicune. So unless the pronouns were used in the Japanese version or Chuang Yi's version I'm guessing the trivia is actually wrong (and is an error if anything) --ZestyCactus 04:59, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
In this case then, saying that Suicune's gender is genderless would be speculation unless it was referred to as that at least several times. PattyMan 05:31, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

X (adventures)

Hello! I saw you reverted my edit, and in the summary you asked "What?" The reason for my edit was that when I read that s/he imitated X, I thought it meant that s/he was doing it in a mocking fashion, and therefore I thought that word would be better there. Is this not the case? --FireGambit (talk) 15:51, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Template edit request

Since the article "Power Plant" has been moved to "Kanto Power Plant", the links on {{Kanto}} and {{Legendarylocations}} are now outdated. Due to the the templates being protected, could you as an administrator update the links to their new locations? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:40, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Mr. Pokémon Sprites

Hello. Just wondering why you think that Mr. Pokémon's overworld sprites should not be the article. - unsigned comment from TorNyan (talkcontribs)

Is that what you were doing? Because your edit caused the page to be doubled. I will add the sprites, but next time preview what you're doing before you save your work. And sign your comments with four tildes. ~ <- These things. Ataro (talk) 18:06, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Anime plot

Ataro, are the details of the anime plot added as long as they finished airing a dub episode? --Cinday123 (Talk) 05:42, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't know. I don't see why not. Ataro (talk) 05:46, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Anime synopses can be written after the episode airs in Japan afaik. No reason to wait for the dub. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:29, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
And as long as they are from the official Pokémon anime website right? --Cinday123 (Talk) 06:59, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
As long as the person writing has actually watched the episode. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:11, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Pokemon Adventures update

Took care of the Viz titles from the new Black and White volume that came out. The main reason why I am contacting you is to let you know the pictures for the english covers of Volume 22 and 23 are up on the Internet already along with the picture of volume 16 of Black and White. Also what would you want me to do when Volume 22 comes out next month and it is confirmed that the two FireRed and LeafGreen chapters are indeed not there as they were moved to Volume 23? -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:24, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

We just leave a note stating that the chapters were moved on the volume's page. Ataro (talk) 02:11, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Since I usually do special 2 day shipping on Amazon that gets me the books on their release date, if I get to it first then I will handle that myself. -Tyler53841 (talk) 04:53, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Honō's name

Can you move this page back to Honō because the English name, Fire, turned out to be from an untrusted source? After speaking to Zesty, she said to use names from official and trusted sources. PattyMan 00:48, 3 April 2014 (UTC)


About my link templates: I thought if I used, for example, Ash's Pikachu instead of just linking "Pikachu" to redirect to Ash's, it would have the same effect as if I linked it. I did add the és, though, that I had been asked to. Sorry. I'm really new to this. Thanks for helping. Fairycoordinator (talk) 21:51, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Pokemon Adventures conformation

Just a heads up. I confirmed that the first two chapters of the FireRed and LeafGreen chapter will be held back till Volume 23 in the VIZ releases, no surprise there since VIZ has done this many times already. Other than that I already took care of the usual business of dealing with the English titles to the remaining Ruby and Sapphire chapters as well as a few related pages. -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:17, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Released stuff

Is it necessary to add in move information to their articles if the chapter the move was first used in was not released in volume format? For example, in the Calm Mind page, all of the Pokémon listed were using moves that were in volume format and the chapters were listed. PattyMan 00:22, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Manga Trainer class format

Hey ataro, I'd like to run this by you and Zesty before I continue, but since you seem to edit info on Trainer classes with manga-related info, I'll ask you first. When you get a chance, can you take a look at my sandbox? I was thinking a format like this so the info on the page isn't super redundant. If needed, we could put captions too, but at the very least, I hope this works. Thanks in advance. ht14 03:27, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Mega Evolution

That not how say that. Mega Evolution is evolution method that evolve (Mega Evolve) and devolve. --Samueljoo (talk) 07:33, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

It is stated in the games that Mega Evolution are not technically evolutions at all, and are more accurately transformations. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 08:08, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Image help

Hi I'm new at editing stuff here at bulbapedia and could you help me by uploading these two images: [1] [2] early thanks.User:Animaltamer705:31, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Concerning the new reveals

Just a quick note/input about this influx of new information (the Mega-Hoenn starters and whatnot). While yes, the sites that are reporting them first are all other fan sites, the primary source for this information is a pile of scans directly from CoroCoro. Given that, I'd say it's safe to say this information is legitimate, since they're about as a legitimate of a source as the official Pokémon YouTube channel that first revealed ORAS. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 18:26, 6/7/2014 (UTC)

I know CoroCoro is official. We're waiting to see if these aren't fake scans of CoroCoro. Ataro (talk) 18:44, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Ah well that's certainly understandable. The thought did not cross my mind. Carry on then. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 20:03, 6/7/2014 (UTC)

Discussion about Looker's Origin

I wish to discuss the edit that was reversed about Looker's origin. I have already written out my response to this reversal on the Looker talk page, which I will copy and paste here for your convenience

'I wish to bring up this topic on the origin of Looker, as I believe that this theory has quite a few valid points and believed by quite a few people. As I wrote in the edit, Looker shares many qualities to David Tennant's Doctor. They both share a very similar attire, their profile's look almost identical having the same hairstyle and even eye color. They both believe violence is never the best option, and Looker's International Police badge (from the anime) could very easily be Psychic paper. Looker owns a Croagunk, which matches the color of The Doctor's TARDIS. Lastly, David Tennant's Doctor was first shown on Television in 2005, Platinum being released However, that the current 'Character Origin' is still a speculation. So why doesn't this theory, of which I believe I have given enough proof, not allowed to exist on a community-driven board. As the Actual origin has not been announced by any Nintendo/Game Freak official, why can't this theory hold the same weight? So, I am asking any staff member, please re-consider removing this part of the character Origin.'

A weird anomaly

Lately when I am editing pages like with the Diamond and Pearl Walkthrough the page is automatically being added to my watchlist. I don't know why this is happening. -Tyler53841 (talk) 15:30, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Do you see those boxes on the bottom of the edit page? One says "Watch this page". I don't know why, but it seems that they are now automatically checked, meaning every edit adds the page to your watchlist. This is stupid and I don't know why it does that now. Ataro (talk) 15:46, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

VIZ Name change

However Carr and Orm much like Sird's name remains unchanged as well as their Three Beasts title. -Tyler53841 (talk) 22:06, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Could you handle the Kimberly Image moves on the Archives then? -Tyler53841 (talk) 02:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Also another problem I have is the List of rounds in the fifth chapter of Pokémon Adventures page. Since there had previously been no english titles and that stuff is in invisible code, if I drop it now it would screw up the template. Unless if you have a solution then I will keep the invisible code up but keep the VIZ titles in the correct spots until VIZ completes it's run. -Tyler53841 (talk) 15:40, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
