Wha...? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:24, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Uhhh... I think s/he wants you to correct his/her grandma's grammar. Maybe. JoeRunner (talk) 22:10, 25 June 2019 (UTC) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:41, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

The word "against".

Dear GrammarFreak01,

Please end your determination to get rid of the word "against" across articles. This isn't a necessary edit and would definitely be considered useless. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 23:49, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Just a reminder that these kind of edits where you're zeroing in on just one word and changing that one word is considered unnecessary. I personally don't mind either wording of "X battled against Y" or "X battled Y". If it's consistency you're after, I don't think it's that much of an issue if one articles uses "X battled Y" and another uses "X battled against Y".--ForceFire 05:46, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
But I've never heard "X battled against Y" being used outside of this site. "X battled Y" is unanimously more prevalent from what I've read. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:00, 23 June 2019 (UTC)


I'm not sure if I've said this before, but you shouldn't do what you most recently did to SM128's page again. Links need to be to what they're related to. If Hau's Dartrix is mentioned, it needs to be link to HIS, not the Pokemon as a whole. It is not about every Dartrix, but Hau's and Hau's alone. That's not how linking goes here. Playerking95 (talk) 11:00, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

I know for a fact that those kinds of links are frowned upon. I think BigDocFan was the one who got in trouble for that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 11:02, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
If it has a page, then yes it should link to Hau's Dartrix. If not, then it links to the species page. I'm pretty sure I've told this to one of you two.--ForceFire 11:53, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
I think you told BigDocFan that, but I don't exactly remember. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:24, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

Your userpage

Gen 8 came out ages ago iirc. your userpage is old. - unsigned comment from Alivebacon (talkcontribs) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:46, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
Grammar's right on that. Gen 8 is coming out in November. (You might be thinking about Gen 7. I confuse them sometimes too because their numerals are so similar.) JoeRunner (talk) 22:05, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Undoing my edit SM102

Why did you just undo my edit? PokéSean 23:33, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Not notable. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:34, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for helping me. Is there a way of communicating with people on the site other than this or am I doing it right? :) - unsigned comment from Mega Growlithe (talkcontribs)

AG176 mistakes

What could I do more better and did you really think Butch left off-screen? PokéSean 19:30, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

I have talked with Force Fire (talk · contribs) about this because you didn't reply. PokéSean 00:43, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Removing clears

Please don't remove clears ({{-}}) for no reason. They exist to prevent images from a previous section interfering in the following one. They're particularly important for left-aligned images. For example, this is why clears are important. --SnorlaxMonster 10:26, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

Nothing was being interfered on my screen, though. It was just leaving an unnecessary space. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:28, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Your screen isn't the only screen on which people view pages. Furthermore, clears shouldn't create any additional space unless they are clearing something (as long as there aren't excess new lines around them), which indicates there was something on your screen that needed clearing if you were able to observe a difference. --SnorlaxMonster 10:33, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

League Conference

My edit to the League Conference page was not "insignificant". Torpoleon (talk) 16:55, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Your recent edits

I was told to not undo rewording to edits, because that is edit waring. So you shouldn't be undoing my rewording. You can't keep rewording everyone else and then not allow people to do the same to you when they feel it's necessary. Playerking95 (talk) 19:23, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry. Just trying to be consistent with other articles. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:24, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

James T-Shirt

Should not the reference in the shirt to James' Chimecho be mentioned in his article? They did this at the time when Jessie brought an Arbok flute. Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:29, 07 July 2019 (UTC)

I think those bits of trivia are more important and appropriate for the episode articles rather than the Pokémon articles. Will be removing the Arbok examples now. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:12, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
In fact I find these references and quotations more interesting than trivia like "Pokemon x is the first of someone to do thing y" or something of the sort, because are things made for those long time fans who keep their eye on details, but ok.-- Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:25, 07 July 2019 (UTC)


To answer your question, your change to my edit in the M05 page was too wordy and contained too much unnecessary information. Honestly, you should stop nitpicking with edits that people make here. Torpoleon (talk) 22:27, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

It certainly doesn't need to be its own bullet. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:41, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
You're wrong. Torpoleon (talk) 01:10, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Would you mind telling me why? Also, it looks like Force Fire agrees with me. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:00, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Mind your own damn business and quit changing my edits. Torpoleon (talk) 16:46, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
That's not much of an explanation, now is it? At some point, other people are going to change your edits in some shape or form, so don't get into a big fuss about it. Plus, I think establishing the amount of years the trend has been going on for before being broken is significant. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:51, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
I already gave you an explanation. I don't mind changes as long as they are worthwhile. Your changes (not just to my edits, but to many other edits) are nitpicky and minor edits. Judging by comments other people have made on your talk page, I am not the only one to bring this up. Do me a favor and stop stalking my edits, and adding your nitpicky, minor grammar changes. Torpoleon (talk) 18:03, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
So establishing the amount of years the trend has been going on for before being broken is nitpicky and minor? Sure... GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:04, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Diglett source

Why would we need to link to an external article? The game directly states that Diglett was created by Shigeki Morimoto. Of course, if we can link to a video, I will do that, but it seems like an unneeded step. Doomhiker (talk) 12:40, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Where exactly does the game state it? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:02, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
In the quote from Shigeki Morimoto after being defeated when the player has a Diglett with a Game Boy origin marking in their party, in Pokémon Sun and Moon: "You know Diglett, right? It's actually basically just a character that I had made up when I was a little kid. I even drew up a flip-book featuring it then!" Doomhiker (talk) 16:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
You're going to need to run that through with an admin, then, because I'm not sure if that's reliable enough. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 17:17, 28 July 2019 (UTC)


Several of the entries about real animals and biology in Bulbapedia are grossly mistaken, showing a misunderstanding of species diversity and distribution, and especially, of ecological interaction and evolution. I tried to change some minor things, but they got reverted. Seridon (talk) 20:45, 05 August 2019 (UTC)

You're going to have to consult with the admins on that. Everything looks fine on my end. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:11, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Plot edits

Dear GrammarFreak01,

Your recents edits to the episode plots are not required, often only rephrasing a sentence slightly or deleting entire details which you deem unimportant. Also you are now editing the Sun and Moon plots a paragraph at a time, a habit that is not condoned on Bulbapedia. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 22:03, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Stop being so stylish and flashy with your writing. That's what's not needed. Plot summaries are meant to be summaries, not a place to show off writing styles and skills. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:05, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
There's also no need to describe absolutely everything that happens in an episode, all the way down to the last gag. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:06, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Also, it's become very exhausting for me to edit an entire plot summary, which is why I've been editing plot summaries by paragraph now. I'm better with quicker, simplistic edits. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:09, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
You cannot be editing by sections simply because its convenient for you. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 22:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Alola League starting episode

The Alola League arc starts in SM129, because that's where the opening ceremony is. That has always been the mark to start the League. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:03, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

You might want to talk to Reinhartmax about that. He said this to say about the matter. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:06, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
All those episodes were where the League was officially declared to have begun. Kukui didn't officially start the League until SM129. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:27, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
Once again, talk to Reinhartmax about that. I'm just following their lead. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:44, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I've already brought this issue up with Force Fire and am waiting for his reply. With all due respect, I have more, well, respect for his opinion as an admin. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:54, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Okay. Still, talk with it about Reinhartmax. I think they raise a solid point. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:11, 11 August 2019 (UTC)


Hi Grammar, hope all is well. Was wondering if you had an account on Bulbagarden as a member wants to discuss things regarding recent edits for Guzma's Golisopod--BigDocFan (talk) 20:41, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Detective Pikachu Mewtwo thing.

"But the movie is linked in the section header." Can't I just change the header? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:59, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

No. That's for the movie. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:35, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
And why doesn't the article mention the video game? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 04:53, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
There can be a separate section for that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:54, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I want to, but I'm not sure how to differentiate the two. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 04:57, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Just so we're clear, I'm asking for advice. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 21:41, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
