== Galar Fossils ==
In the anime it was clearly showed that the skull is used to create Artcovish so this is the Fossilized Fish. Only because it was mixed in the game doesn't mean it is mixed in the anime.

Mr.Mime (cont.)

I couldn't continue to talk because you have archived it. The point I want to say or hope that I don't understand is, Ash caught Mr.Mime in It's Mr.Mime Time, which is a fully evolved Pokémon. That means he caught it prior to Beedrill, but why didn't you add Mr.Mime instead of Beedrill in the trivia, and also it is 1031 episodes earlier. - unsigned comment from Dhiwakar (talkcontribs)

Why would before be notable? It isn't the last fully evolved Pokémon before Dragonite, and it's not a member of a three-stage family. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:02, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

I understand it now and thank you FinnishPokéFan92 Dhiwakar (talk) 02:58, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

New page

Why can't I create new pages,or why does it say you are denied permission to create a new page? - unsigned comment from Dhiwakar (talkcontribs)

Like I said before, please talk to an admin about things that trouble you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 04:32, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you FinnishPokéFan92. --Dhiwakar (talk) 14:51, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Not sure why you couldn't answer this question, Finnish, when you know the answer to it. In any case, Dhiwakar, you can't create new pages because you are not autoconfirmed. To be autoconfirmed, you have to be a user for some time and make a certain number of edits.--ForceFire 15:22, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
My apologies, FF. I guess I just figured he should ask from a person whose job it basically is to answer to any questions new users may have. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:25, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Notability requirement?

Hi, you reverted my edit on the Pokemon HQ Lab page for not being notable enough.

I checked the wiki rules for notability requirements and the only rule I see on notability is this one: "All English and Japanese Pokémon canon material is notable and relevant."

From this page: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Bulbapedia:Notability_requirements

As this is an encyclopedia, I feel it could be useful - perhaps not to every user, but to some - to have a comprehensive list of Trainers and their Pokemon's movesets. The next battle in the game is the first Chobin battle, and that one Pokemon and one move has its own block there. Later on in the Pokemon HQ Lab page, the battle with Spy Naps is listed along with his Shadow Teddiursa's moves, even though he can never actually use any of them. So, I don't understand where the notability requirement comes in, and it seems inconsistent - is there a policy I'm not aware of? I'm new here.ReturnofVojtoRX (talk) 08:54, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

He isn't notable enough to receive a detailed list of movesets and Abilities. That's what I meant. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:52, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I understood that, but my question is: why not? Or to put it another way, what's the harm in adding more detailed information on Trainer encounters? As I noted above, there are other Trainers from this game that are given a detailed list of moves and abilities when they arguably don't need them either. I don't see why it has to be removed for not being notable enough if it's factual information about the games and it's something players might encounter or find useful. ReturnofVojtoRX (talk) 10:58, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Bulbapedia doesn't see it necessary for adding detailed party info for less notable Trainers. It would easily end up taking too much space if they were added for everyone. I'm pretty sure all party templates we have on location articles are all for Trainers who are notable in some way. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:44, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Too much space on the wiki servers or too much space on the page? You have two subpages on your user page relating to your Pokemon teams which use those templates several dozen times, so I'm assuming it's not a wiki space issue. Does more detailed information need to be posted on a subpage for the article, if it's added? --ReturnofVojtoRX (talk) 11:56, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Too much space on the page. Would be inconvenient. Important Trainers are usually ones who have a notable role in the story or are major bosses, like your rivals, Gym Leaders, or villainous team leaders. I recommend you contact an admin, because that's about the best explanation I can come up with at the moment. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:00, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
I've done so, it seems prudent to get a proper understanding of how to add this information before I continue doing so. Thanks for the response. --ReturnofVojtoRX (talk) 12:04, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
No problem. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:44, 1 February 2020 (UTC)


I don't think the drinks are really all that related. Fresh Water, Soda Pop, and Lemonade are related and all can be purchased from vending machines, but the other three really aren't. MooMoo Milk at least can be purchased from vending machines in Orre, but otherwise isn't that similar. The only thing Tea has in common with them is that it replaces the role of the vending machine drinks for satisfying the Saffron guards. Berry Juice just has nothing in common with the others at all.

As a result, personally I'd rather just delete the template entirely and leave "See also" links between the three vending machine drinks. If you would like to make a case for why there should be navigation between them though, please go ahead. --SnorlaxMonster 09:45, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Sounds sensible to me. I think I'll make the template exclusive to the vending machine drinks. How does that sound? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:52, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
My one concern with doing that is that I would want to put the "Vending Machine drinks" as the nav header, but then MooMoo Milk would also be in that category, but only in Colosseum and XD. Which is why I think just "See also" links rather than a formal Nav template would be better. --SnorlaxMonster 11:04, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Hmmm... Yeah. You're probably right. Could you delete the template for me? Also, should I add all the drinks there, or Tea and maybe also Berry Juice? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:44, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Just the three main vending machine drinks should have "See also" links to each other, I think. --SnorlaxMonster 12:03, 1 February 2020 (UTC)


Please don't use {{Itemlist/2}} (or 3) for cases like Gym rewards where you receive both at once. That's not what it's meant for and having different uses in different places will only be confusing.

The template is only meant for items that can randomly change. I.e., where you only get one item at a time, and the next day or something you may get something else (and where it's not convenient to separate those out to their own lists like Fishing items or something). Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:53, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

To me, it seems perfectly usable outside of randomly changing items too. And Chosen seems to agree with me. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:57, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
You missed a big point. It's meant for one thing. Using it for something completely opposite is terribly confusing. Please do not. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:04, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I just tried to improvise. And to be honest, I still fail to see what's wrong with this way of using it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:05, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
(Sorry, I didn't think you necessarily wanted a response.) We can look at Axew's Eye for a fairly simple example.
In the uses you were putting it to, when you talk to one person, you get multiple items at once, like a TM and a uniform. If someone sees that and then comes to Axew's Eye, they would think that, oh, looks like if I look around the northwest shore, I can get a Pearl, Big Pearl, AND Pearl String (and a second Pearl and Big Pearl).
But, no, I made the template so that we could much more easily link those items in the Wild Area that can regenerate as different things for the same spot (like a Pearl OR a Big Pearl OR a Pearl String).
Do you see that these uses are completely opposite? Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:46, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
Kinda. I guess I'll be okay with this now. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:59, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Sword/Shield plot

If you'd like, you can adapt the plot summary you posted here for the main Pokémon Sword and Shield page. --Abcboy (talk) 23:05, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea. I may very well do so. Thanks! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:49, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

"I don't think these description are overly necessary."

Hi, I made a description about Bea and her Pokémon on her page. Why was it not approved? I mean, her anime category is extremely reduced, and the episode showed a lot of her personality and her Pokémon. Isn't the goal to have a wiki with complete and (if) possible detailed information about each element of the franchise? The greatest merit of Twilight Wings is precisely that he is giving depth to some characters. Well, I don't know, you've been in this for longer than me. --Hilaru Wazana (talk) 16:58, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

I readded the character section with a new description. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:01, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
Oh, Ok. Thanks. :D --Hilaru Wazana (talk) 20:11, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Do not revert my edits with no reason

If you're going to revert my edits, give a good reason for doing so. Randomly reverting edits without so much as giving an edit reason is uncivil behavior. Besides, there was nothing wrong with the edits—so why did you do that? --Dada (talk) 16:46, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

I see you also reverted this change I made without reason. If you believe I was wrong, say so in the edit description. However in this case the reason why I made this edit is because the wallbreaking only occurs in the English dub and not in the Japanese original. So if you're going to move it back to "trivia" the least you could do is make it say "in the English dub,". --Dada (talk) 16:49, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
The first one was because characters of the day aren't listed as debuts, splitting the double character link was unnecessary, and the last sentence didn't need to be split away from the big paragraph. The second one was because fourth wall breaks are listed in the trivia section, even if they're dub only. Also, be aware that you can edit the whole page at once instead of just one section at a time. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:23, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Here's the problem: when you removed all my edits, without edit reason or anything, you seem to have deleted more than you intended, judging on your message here. That's why I edit sections at a time instead of the whole page: because it allows me to explain the purpose of each edit.
Next time, use an edit reason instead of treating me like I'm a spambot whose content can just be thrown out like garbage. It's only a basic courtesy towards your fellow editors, all of whom are here in our spare time. I understand that this is a wiki and everything we write here is going to be edited by others, but giving a reason for it is only a basic thing. And not to mention, if you don't do that, the only thing that will happen is I'll edit it back in because I can't understand the reason why you removed it.
The things you did not acknowledge:
1) your revert on DP104. Can you at least just admit that you should've added "in the dub only" to that sentence, and that reverting it with no edit reason and no message either on my talk page or on the talk page of the article is incredibly suspicious?
2) you removed my addition regarding the conversation Delia has with Ash, and you removed my addition on line 129 regarding the title card. That's why you should not carelessly be reverting entire pages. You removed content that you didn't intend to remove. You apparently did that just because one sentence was split off from the rest. Did you not notice you removed those other things too?
3) I also removed a line in the errors section because it wasn't an error. You didn't mention any reason for removing it just now, so I'm assuming you also put that back in without realizing it by reverting the whole page.
It's difficult to assume good faith when you're just removing entire edits with apparently not having any reason for it. Please don't do it again and be careful next time, and if you're going to revert anything, make sure it's for a valid reason. I would absolutely do the same thing for you, and I don't think I'm being unreasonable here by asking that you do the same thing. --Dada (talk) 14:33, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
I didn't mean to treat you as a spambot. If I came off like that to you, I apologize, it wasn't my intention. And more often than not, I do acknowledge the reason for my edit reversions in the edit summary. Sorry for not doing that to your edits. It's also not unusual here at Bulbapedia to remove entire big edits, even if one of the done edits happened to be correct. I don't want us to be treat each other as unpleasant people, so I apologize for upsetting you, and, from now on, I'll try being more clear about why I alter or remove your edits, if I ever do. PS. Your post is really impressive. My hat's off to your dedication. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:36, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
I apologize for coming on so strongly to you. I understand that some of my edits were not correct and that you were fixing the page by removing them. I'll keep that in mind from now on. I've also been told that section editing is dispreferred to full page editing if there are multiple edits to make, so I'll refrain from doing that as well. Thanks for understanding my view on this. --Dada (talk) 15:36, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
I'm glad we were able to resolve this peacefully. You're welcome. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:39, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Morty's Gengar

Can you tell me what's missing on that Morty's Gengar page? I take the opportunity and ask what's missing from the Red's Charizard page too. They put a huge banner to say that the page is wrong, but they do not edit or say what is missing. I'm trying to fix it, but I don't see anything different from other pages there.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:12, 07 March 2020 (UTC)

Cleanup does not equal incomplete. It simply means the text quality in the page needs improving, not that it would necessarily be missing anything. That's what the incomplete template is for. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:32, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

"This article is for the anime tournaments only."

Pokémon League Conference Ok, Where do I put information about manga tournaments? I was going to try to set up a table like the one for the leagues that happened there.-- Hikaru Wazana (talk19:15, 01 April 2020 (UTC)

I don't personally think we need those. Maybe ask an admin? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:27, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
I thought you were an adm. Okay, who is the person who has to talk about it?-- Hikaru Wazana (talk22:44, 01 April 2020 (UTC)
You can recognize admins from the symbols visible at "Recent Changes". And I don't think there's a designated admin to talk about this. Like I said earlier, personally, I don't this tournament info is needed on Bulbapedia, but you can always create it in a user subpage for yourself and ask an admin like Force Fire if it's worth mainspacing. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:01, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Changing links

The reason why I am changing the link to the video is because that original link you added back is actually my Facebook. I know that I have other links to my facebook with additional information which I believe to be important, but I feel a little more comfortable if the links were less from my facebook and more towards YouTube as I don't want to attract random strangers trying to add me. The video of Eric Stuart giving his answer is still on that video in the link I added, and I allowed the maker of the video to use it in his video that is actually meant to go in dept and is educational.TheGreenBeetle (talk) 15:53, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Understood. Sorry for the trouble. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:07, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Ash Team Page

Make your page however you want, but Charizard was caught before Squirtle and in the battle against Drake Charizard used Flamethrower, Ember, Seismic Toss, and Dragon Rage. If you want to keep it inconsistent/inaccurate I won't touch it.--Rahl (talk) 16:59, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing those out! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:09, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
Sure thing!--Rahl (talk) 17:11, 26 April 2020 (UTC)
Whoops! I didn't notice your edits and accidentally reversed some of them! Sorry! Feel free to fix them! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:09, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Galar League Logo Picture SM128

I have a screenshot of that one Easter egg I mentioned in SM128. How can I show it to you? Last time I went to add a picture to the Bulbagarden Archives as I wasn't a confirmed user or something. How do I change that if at all? BlazeFire (talk) 19:34, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

You can also post the image on postimage.org. You can post images there without the need to register in or anything. Just put it there and send me the link. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:56, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

I forget about Imgur! https://imgur.com/a/gAaA2W0 But still, how do you get you account confirmed and able to add pictures to the master gallary if need be? BlazeFire (talk) 00:29, 10 May 2020 (UTC) Just a follow up; I'm quite confident this was intended to be easter egg. Both the symbol on the bag and the official Galar League symbol depict a Pokeball with a red top and a blue bottom at the same slant. It was also shown subtly and more importantly, on the first episode of a league arc that first aired in Japan during the SwSh hype season. BlazeFire (talk) 00:34, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Just checking in... BlazeFire (talk) 00:27, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't think that's a reference. To me, it just looks like a generic Poké Ball symbol. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:32, 16 May 2020 (UTC)


Hello !!

Have you planned on removing all my edits ? Cause it's been a few years I've been editing. You're not an admin to do so ?! Jeangabin666 (talk) 11:52, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Of course I'm not removing all of your edits. I'm also just editing some. I just think you're reaching it with some of your ideas of placing anime characters into different Trainer classes. Also, "Fishing rod" should be a disambiguation page instead of a redirect page. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:56, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Not sure if I did this 'talk' thing right. It's my first time, I am new to editing on Bulbapedia. Although, it is indeed inside the Hulbury Stadium that you acquire the TM and not out in Hulbury. I don't see any reference to the TM or Whirlpool in the cities page but it does have a section in the Hulbury page for the Hulbury Stadium and I thought it would be a good idea to make a reference to the TM and/or whirlpool in that section of the page, what do you think? Not everyone explores the building pages either. Cloud9Skywalker (talk) 03:42, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

The building article also has a lot more info that's not visible in the city page. Also, for future talk page edits: if you want to start a new topic, click the + at the top of the page, next to the "Edit" button. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:09, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Still waiting for Sync Pairs edit approvation

Well... I'm still waiting someone say something about the edit I suggested, becuase right now there is a lot of space wasted for the same sync pairs ecc... and to me that is a pretty good, with order and everything--Zarxiel94 (talk) 09:41, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

I'm not an admin. I was never part of this approval thing to begin with. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:42, 6 June 2020 (UTC)
Ups... who I can contact then?--Zarxiel94 (talk) 09:53, 6 June 2020 (UTC)
Some admin. Force Fire or Abcboy, maybe. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:55, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Galar Route 9

You really cleaned it up! So, I wanted to thank-you for that! It looks way better, but I'm just curious why did you decide to go with the ocean color for the items located in Circhester Bay and not the surfing color like how it shows when hunting Pokémon? Also, I did a complete sweep of the entire route so I think that covers all the items and makes the section of the article complete.--Cloud9Skywalker (talk) 07:05, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

You're welcome! And I made it that color to match the color of the Circhester Bay Trainer lost. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:10, 7 June 2020 (UTC)


Yamper was unhidden because it appeared, so just make sure you at least delete it if you absolutely no it's not there. Just because you didn't see it, it doesn't mean it did not appear, thanks. Playerking95 (talk) 10:43, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

I thought I left it unhidden. Must've been some sort of mistake while I tried to get my edit through in the flurry of edits. Sorry. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:49, 14 June 2020 (UTC)


Why did you delete what I said? If I need to edit, please infomred me and ill try to fix it - unsigned comment from Gian9456 (talkcontribs)

I explained it in my edit summary. The info was already in the above section. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:19, 24 June 2020 (UTC)


You know that I prefer [[typeless]] over {{DL|Type|typeless}} kind of linking (and have reasons for that), and you also know that I decided not to care too much and not change them, especially if you put them (or you should know). I don't dislike people disagreeing (or even fail to discuss it), but I dislike people totally disregarding my opinion, so please stop these kinds of edits. Thank you. Nescientist (talk) 20:57, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

My apologies. I just prefer section links over redirect links. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:30, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Do note that I never disagreed with your edit in general. I can perfectly accept the change from ??? to typeless. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:32, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in here, but I just wanted to point out that it is Bulbapedia policy to use link templates like that, rather than using redirects. This is to keep with consistency. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:15, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Nowhere does it mandate that redirects never be used; as evident from the sections linked above, in fact it requires linking redirects under specific circumstances. Nescientist (talk) 17:57, 8 July 2020 (UTC)


Hey. Just wanted to know where you got that info that Blake was disguised as Colress. If you could let me know that would be great. Thanks.--Reinhartmax (talk) 23:14, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

It was added to the PS548 article by people who knew what that the round's dialogue said. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:30, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Gym Trainers.

Hi, FinnishPokeFan92, I noticed that you removed the incomplete tag from the Gym Trainers Appearances Page. I added it because I noticed that the Motostoke Gym Trainers weren't added. I'm not very good at Bulbapedia as I just started, but am I missing something. Please respond if I was wrong. Thank you, Chespinfavor (talk) 23:07, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Since Motostoke Gym Trainers aren't battled against, they don't have VS models. In the future, be sure to specify what is missing when using that template. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:45, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks!Chespinfavor (talk) 00:29, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
No problem. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:24, 30 July 2020 (UTC)


I apologize if the recent addition to the inference policy for the moves has caused confusion. Some things that I want to point out: All the moves that are to be inferred, those with or without additional context, have to be discussed with the staff first and then can be added to the moves pages, if the staff themselves haven't added already. This is to avoid edit warring, potential disputes or confusion like in Goh's Raichu's case. Another thing is the exceptions to inferences for non-verbal moves that are very difficult to identify, even with the additional context present, which I failed to address initially. That would include moves like Thunder Shock, Thunderbolt, Thunder, Discharge, or when it's between Volt Tackle and Wild Charge, or Stone Edge and Rock Blast etc. You get the gist. In the recent episode's case, while we do have some context present, which would be Ash commanding Pikachu to use the move and other characters lining up to contribute, it is definitely not enough to confirm that the others were using the exact same move. The animation of such moves did/does not help in differentiating them, as they look way too identical to identify. Because of this ambiguity, different users may perceive these occurrences differently, which may potentially lead to edit warring or disputes, which was not the intention when the policy in question was added. We'll try to rephrase it, so that it's not too vague and more direct. That's all I wanted to clarify. I hope that you have a good day! AdilTalk page 17:05, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

I understand. I also apologise for my reaction. There's one other move issue that I think has more evidence to support it, but maybe I should discuss the about it over on your talk page? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:07, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
If it's a move that has unique animation, then that page's talk page would be appropriate. If it just involves inference, then we can discuss it here. It's fine by me. AdilTalk page 17:10, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
It's about Goh's Scorbunny's Double Kick, which, I think, falls under the same category as Shaymin's Aromatherapy. It was first called out in its capture episode, but I think that the move was already used in the previous episode. Specifically, in the scene that Goh even recalls himself in a flashback right before telling Scorbunny to use Double Kick for the first time. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:26, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
Noted. I'll let you know when we have a decision. AdilTalk page 07:56, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll be waiting. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:58, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Based on the events that occurred in that particular episode, we have come to the conclusion that JN004 should be Double Kick's debut episode. The flashback followed by Goh recalling the move and commanding makes it abundantly clear. Also, it's the only kick-based/Fighting-type move that Scorbunny/Raboot has used from JN004 till the recent episode (Ember involves fire and kicking a rock, which is different). One thing that I want to make absolutely clear is that the decision has been made purely based on the specific scenario that played out in the anime, and I want to emphasize that without the mini flashback, it would have been very difficult to acknowledge this without ambiguity as Double Kick. The level at which it learns the move in the games plays no role in this particular case. That being said, please feel free to make the relevant changes concerning this when you get free time. AdilTalk page 09:33, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much. And I perfectly understand that levels don't matter in the anime. I will start doing the edits right away. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:48, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
Good to know, and thanks. AdilTalk page 09:52, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
You're welcome. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:07, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

Bulbasaur's Dig

From EP225

Instead, Bulbasaur finds itself in the rolling boulder's path. Time appears to slow down and everyone watches the unfolding scene in horror. An almighty smash sound is heard, and Bulbasaur reflects on its life. Ash awakens from a daytime nap and looks into the sky to see a cloud that reminds him of his Bulbasaur. Meanwhile, Oak and Tracey manage to push the rock into the growing lake. They scour the area, but Bulbasaur is nowhere to be seen. Oak calls out. Everyone gasps when Bulbasaur emerges from the dirt, seemingly unscathed. It jumps up the escarpment and shakes itself clean of the muck. The Grass-types are thrilled to have their hero and throw Bulbasaur into the air several times as a show of gratitude. Tracey marvels that Bulbasaur cannot usually learn the move Dig, but Oak notes that in times of need, it is possible to call upon power never known to it previously.

So yeah, it's not really an error. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 21:16, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Oak means that Bulbasaur basically willed itself to learning a move it can't usually learn. So yes. It is an error. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:33, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
But the fact that he acknowledged it proves it's not an error on the writer's part. By your logic, Redesect's Blaze Kick & Extremespeed are errors. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:50, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
They aren't because those moves are legitimately available for the Red Genesect. Dig has never been legitimately available for Bulbasaur. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:29, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Ash's Staraptor

I'm just taking a bit of a proactive stance here to ask that you not edit Ash's Staraptor's page further in relation to its gender. Feel free to discuss it on the talk page. Thanks! Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:16, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

I wasn't planning to, but thanks for the heads-up! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:09, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Unique animations

This is simply not your judgement to make about Dragon Breath. Part of the reason we added anime moves explicitly to our policies was to avoid potential edit wars. A move can only be added if it was identified or is on Bulbapedia:List of moves with unique animations.

I.e., you cannot add a move just because you think it's unique.

If you think a move is unique and it's not on that page, start a section on its talk page. Once it's accepted and added, then you can add it in the mainspace. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:08, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Shiny question

When was the word Shiny used between Ash vs. Conway and the raid battle at the ruins? I've seen every episode between those two involving a Shiny and they're always called alternate, different, strange, or off color. BlazeFire (talk) 01:29, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

The term Shiny was also used at least once during Black & White. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:18, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

Signature on Providence131's talk page

Just so you know, you messed it up with the second message. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:10, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Whoops. Failed to see the signature not going there. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:01, 15 October 2020 (UTC)


Please don't revert my edit on Voltorb. Now it's between me and ForceFire, you have no idea what his problem is.--Rocket Grunt 18:01, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

My bad. But no need to be rude, either. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:30, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Page request

Hi, I'm new here and I actually wanna request if it's alright to make a page here on Bulbapedia on Ryan Reynolds. I'm a big fan of him I got like a great picture for him if it's approved. NoobMaster96 (talk) 19:56, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

I'm not an administrator, so I unfortunately can't give you permission. I recommend you ask [[::User:Force Fire|Force Fire]] ([[::User talk:Force Fire|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Force Fire|contribs]]) instead. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:00, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. NoobMaster96 (talk) 20:01, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Hey, sorry I forgot to provide a source for Erika’s VA, it’s https://twitter.com/ItsXanthor/status/1167264741506469890. Getini (talk) 14:47, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Good. Feel free to readd it and put that source in the edit description. Also, remember that you can edit the whole page in one go. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:04, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Nevermind. Thanks for providing the source, nevertheless. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:06, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Image removal?


I'd noticed that you had deleted the image of the Celebi shrine from the Lake of Life page. The main reason the image wasn't added to the Arborville page was because the shrine was in the forest and not the town, and the forest, while unnamed, is very much associated with the lake. I'd like the image re-added for balance on the page. Regards, PardescanSlowbro (talk) 23:45, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

I had removed it because it was an image of the shrine from the past. The image from the present would suit better. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 01:53, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

pokemon anime moves page and asking if you are willing to help out with these pages

I am going to have an anime move page(s) for my userspace especially since I believe lost track of how many times Pikachu used Thunderbolt, Meowth using Scratch and/or Fury Swipes, all instances where a move is used in the main series anime and which moves appear in each anime. If you are willing to help out with these pages, then you can help out as I will need much help as possible for these pages. Please reply when you can!Ctc1017 (talk) 01:21, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Good luck with that. But I don't think I have the time or focus to pull off something like that. Sorry. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 01:24, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, please be aware that talk page section titles don't need to be overly detailed, as long as the post itself conveys the message. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 01:25, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Galar Fossils

In the anime it was clearly showed that the skull is used to create Artcovish so this is the Fossilized Fish. Only because it was mixed in the game doesn't mean it is mixed in the anime. [1] [2] --Altruis でんき 18:50, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Actually, it does. The Fossils used to restore Dracovish in the anime match the sprites of the Fossils used to restore one in the games. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:55, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
And this is not true! You can't create Arctovish from Fossilized Drake + Fossilized Dino, like they showed in the anime. So this means that this Skull is a Fossilized Fish and not a Fossilized Drake. I created this picture to show what I mean. [3] --Altruis でんき 19:33, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
