Adding transfer-only moves to Pokedex pages

I don't know if I can word this better myself, so I'm going to quote Nescientist.

Sumwun and I believe that, for the moves, an additional section "By transfer from an earlier generation" would be sensible. (Please refer to User talk:Force Fire#Transfer-only moves and ability changes.) The addition of this subsection would enable users to tell what moves <species> can know (in <game/generation>) at one glance.
It's very well possible even Tiddlywinks is underestimating how difficult it is to answer the "know in <game/generation>" question (as much as I initially did). As Sumwun said at the referenced talk page, currently, you'd have to click at least up to 6 links to learnset pages, assuming you already know by heart how transfer works (and that you can't transfer Pokémon from GO by any means, which is what I actually doublechecked). And additionally, you might have to actually neglect irrelevant sections on learnset pages (for example, in USUM/GenVII, Bulbasaur cannot know AncientPower AFAIK). (If there's a faster method, I'd like to hear it.)
And I can't stress how important I think that question is, for I believe it is the central question to that species and learnset pages should be providing an answer to (the use case). It all boils down to that use case: in Tiddlywinks' words, what's the "concern" species/learnset pages try to address? I can't sketch a question/use case that would include "By events" but not "By transfer from a prior generation". (Well, for USUM, I can sketch the question "What moves can <species> with black clover know?", but that's arguably a "special" case, and probably comp-centric*.) I would like to know what you guys think that use case should be.
Regarding Tiddlywinks' comment about this coming from a "specific focus like comp/challenges", I took some time to think about that. Apart from the fact that I don't think the use case is comp-centric even, it is also not subjective, but purely factual, unlike the questions you said "we're never going to do" (and, by the way, I agree we shouldn't). For example, I recall that I once designed a team for my next playthrough, and I was searching possible moves for them. From context, I can recreate it must've been for XY before ORAS came out, because I wanted my Swinub to have a good Special Ground-type STAB and ended up breeding it in an earlier generation so I could teach it Earth Power via move tutor, then transfered (and traded) it to the new save file. I don't think that I ever was, in any point in time, trying to answer a question where I required all current subsections but not "By transfer from a prior generation".
I would like to know what you guys think that use case should be, and whether you think the suggestion subsection is sensible.

Unban from the Forums!

In case this hasn't been solved by the time you read this, and if you can do anything about it: I was just banned from Bulbagarden for two days for forgetting that posting Downfall parodies is not acceptable on the site. I, however, have things I need to attend to at the forums. Please, help me be unbanned early if you in any way can. I've understood my mistake and promise not to repeat it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:53, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind. Another user already replied to my question. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:32, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Image edit requests

The VS model for May with a Mega Bracelet has finally been uploaded. However, while it was upgraded in quality today, its dimensions and/or size don't quite match what I think they're supposed to be. Is it possible for you to do something about it, or should I instead ask for the person who uploaded it to do it instead. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:47, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

I'll contact the user. It's best they know for future reference. - Chosen of Mana 13:52, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
The quality of the images from SM103 is not the best possible, and have the TVTokyo logo on them. If you can, could you fix them? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:26, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Nice work, as always! Although you missed one, which could also use a better shot. Also, I wonder if the baby Kangaskhan picture should be updated with a shot from the newest episode, like this one? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:22, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
I updated the Double Team picture with the shot I think fits it better, but it still has the TVTokyo logo. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:50, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Whoops! No it isn't! My bad! Was in a minor rush and didn't check for the logo, just assumed. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:02, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Could you upgrade this image and upload a picture of Gladion's Z-Power Ring? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:10, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Image Move Request

I've noticed that several images featuring Mad Magma's Magmortar still say Mad Boober, could you change this to Mad Magma please?--BigDocFan (talk) 19:48, 4 January 2019 (UTC) Could you do the same please with Mr. Elec Electivire Low Kick.png--BigDocFan (talk) 19:03, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Pokemon with forms

I noticed that you edited a few lists of Pokemon to change the way the names of forms are formatted. Can you also change "<Pokemon> Alolan Form" to "Alolan <Pokemon>"? sumwun (talk) 20:00, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

I believe I tried something to that effect around when they were introduced, but it was overruled, so I'm inclined to leave it alone - Chosen (Talk) 22:16, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh okay. sumwun (talk) 22:29, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
