Curious when the best time to message this user is?
This user is usually online from 9:00AM - 1:00AM.
It is currently 4:13 PM in her time zone!
The last person to leave a message was Thenmark2! They don't have a gender!
Here's a small little list of guidelines I expect to be followed on my talk page:
  • Please use English. It's not that I'm against other languages, it's am I suppose to respond when I don't know what you said?
  • Please do not respond for me. I don't mind people tacking on their own questions to a discussion that's already been made, even before I have the chance to answer the initial post. But when someone personally has come here to ask me a question, don't answer for me. And if someone has answered for me, please don't take their word for my own. I can guarantee you that almost no one on this site knows me as well as I do. If you want my opinion, you wait for my response.

Some users

On some visits to RC, I've noticed that some users appear to have edited a page, but there's no difference (marked by a gray 0, right?). So what are they doing? I like potato chips... 03:12, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

That means that the size of the page is unchanged. So they're changing stuff rather than adding or removing. Werdnae (talk) 03:24, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
So they're basically rewording to the exact length as before? I like potato chips... 03:42, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

My new page

May I make User:Chomper4/Ash's Onix due to hints from the preview? Chomper4 17:31, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

no.Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 21:50, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
Do I need more proof before I can create it? Chomper4 21:12, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
You need to have something to put on the page first. There isn't enough information yet. Creating an article just for the sake of saying you've created it is bad. Werdnae (talk) 21:54, 2 June 2012 (UTC)


I would suggest IP checking this account, as it could be him...or just blocking, to be safe...thanks!--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 18:00, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Their IP doesn't appear to match any of the registered users on this site, nor does their email. Their IP also brought back no results when checked for malicious activity. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:18, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I was just worried. Maybe they should change their name, in order to remove the confusion?--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 18:25, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
I don't see much need. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 18:27, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Problem user

Blackwhite2 keeps on editing the Meloetta page to say it is a female species despite being told it is genderless on the page itself and on their user talk page. Frozen Fennec 21:53, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

possible multiple accounts

I think Jazzycat and Jaz may be the same person. G50 01:15, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

My userspace doesn't violate copyright

I noticed that you deleted part of my userspace, saying that I was violating copyright. Yes, I know it comes from SnorlaxMonster, but he authorized me to copy the necessary part of the code. If you had paid attention to the 2 last conversations between us... Anyway, you can even ask him if you're not sure. So, is there any place where the deleted part is still saved, or do I have to do it all over again? (Also, I didn't finish editing it) TheOriginalOne (talk) 19:41, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

SnorlaxMonster actually came to me personally stating you took more than you were allowed to take. I can restore deleted pages, but only what Snorlax says is okay. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 19:43, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
So, we can do it like this: I go to the edit section, but instead of editing, I will send the final code (exactly what I was going to do today) to SnorlaxMonster for him to say if it's OK. Agreed? TheOriginalOne (talk) 19:52, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Sure. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:55, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Wait... I have put so much effort on this, that now I'll ask you this: can you please send me the code exactly as it was written in my userspace (you have access, right?), for me to be faster at doing my job? TheOriginalOne (talk) 20:05, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
They're all pretty much just copied from SnorlaxMonster though isn't it? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:22, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

No, thrust me: tought it may not look like it at the point of view of another person, I have changed the code a lot. Please keep in mind that I was going to make major edits at the day I found out what you did. Please, you don't need a lot just to send me a code! TheOriginalOne (talk) 20:32, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Which specifically? Archives, today, or the nav? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:35, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Everything, please! TheOriginalOne (talk) 20:39, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Too big to post here, so just download it here. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:45, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! I'll probably finish the code tomorrow. TheOriginalOne (talk) 20:50, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I know that the one who has to approve all of this is SnorlaxMonster, but anyway, I'll send you another copy for you to say what do you think. Download it here TheOriginalOne (talk) 23:11, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

OK, Snorlax authorized me! TheOriginalOne (talk) 13:47, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

A Call for brotherly love is confusing me

Did Chili go on a journey or stayed home? - unsigned comment from Grabbergirl (talkcontribs)

Okay, I rewatched the episode, in both English and Japanese. All Chili says is that he's going to return to the gym to rekindle his relationship with Cress. There is absolutely no mention of a journey, only that he wishes Cilan safe travels. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:22, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

The evolution of Sabrina's Abra

So, is there any solid proof that Sabrina did not use her powers to evolve her Abra in the anime? That it simply evolved on its own?

Jdogno4 (talk) 01:48, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Well given the fact that Abra do not evolve through psychic force, that ought to be proof enough. Is there any proof that it did evolve because of some kind of psychic force? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:51, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Freedom of reasonable opinion

Who's "WE"? I don't know: How many times do I have to ask a question to get a responce? It wasn't until "Force Fire" commented that I had an answer to my original question. That took 7 udos and redos to get that responce. It took 5 of those before anyone gave me an answer of any kind. Now I ask a second question and you refuse to give me an explanation. Instead you give me an angry unwarranted responce without even adressing the question. I think that is highly unfair.

Jdogno4 (talk) 09:16, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

"We" is a habit sometimes brought on by staff, and it identifies the fact that the issue has been discussed with multiple members of staff, and there is a consensus. The big issue is: Even if you don't get a response, that doesn't mean you can go ahead and re-add something. It was removed for a reason. Kenji-girl had given you a response, and if you did not see it then that is your own fault, and you cannot blame anyone for it.
As for your second question (which I assume is the one about Abra), I answered it like I answer most questions: With a slight hint of sarcasm. I was not angry even in the slightest. To be fair, you never answered my question on what proof you had. :P Now as for an explanation, I suppose I could try to delve deeper into the issue. I imagine Sabrina and her Abra trained their psychic abilities a lot together, and her Abra was clearly powerful. Being able to knock out all of Ash's Pokémon without even moving. Now, I know games =/= anime, but even in the anime Pokémon do typically battle which helps them gain experience, and therefore evolve. I do not think it is something you could force with psychic abilities. Sabrina's psychic powers can alter the shape or appearance of something (bending a spoon, turning Brock and Misty into dolls, or even manifesting a younger version of herself) but she cannot automatically force all that experience onto a Pokémon to make it evolve. If anything, maybe she and Abra were syncing, or telepathically communicating, and she could mentally feel that Abra was ready to evolve. Just blatantly assuming that Sabrina made Abra evolve is really farfetched in my opinion. So unless they state, "Sabrina made Abra evolve with her mind!" in the episode (which they don't) I'm not convinced. There is my explanation. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 09:47, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for that explanation on Sabrina and her Abra/Kadabra. I presume when you said "Being able to knock out all of Ash's Pokemon without even moving.", that was when Abra was in the Kadabra stage? When you talked about Abra/Kadabra "Being able to knock out 'ALL' of Ash's Pokemon without even moving", what are you talking about? Abra/Kadabra only ever battled Pikachu (It should be noted that Pikachu didn't get knocked out in the first match, Ash merely forfeited to save Pikachu from further pain.).

I want to apologise for not being clear. When I said my second question, I meant the question concerning Trip not Sabrina and Abra/Kadabra. The question was: How is that describing him as something akin to a Xenophobic Bigot, that is "already there, just less rude sounding".? I'm not trying to be rude or deliberately argumentative, I'm just trying to understand."

Jdogno4 (talk) 05:20, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Well the words "xenophobic" and "bigot" are very strong and hostile words, not well when describing a character from a kids' show. It is stated on the page, but with milder text.
"Compared to the other rivals of the Unova region, Trip is rather distant and prefers not to interact with them outside of battle.
Trip tends to think very little of the Kanto region—which he refers to as "the boonies"—and anyone from there. He thinks of Ash as a hillbilly who needs to go back to the basics of Pokémon training. However, he will help him out once in a while, as seen when he informed Ash that Oshawott's Aqua Jet was uncontrollable because he had his eyes closed."
It still gets the point across, but not nearly as hateful as the words "xenophobe" and "bigot". Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 05:34, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Homika in anime

In Homika's anime section where you put, "When Ash arrive at her gym,...", you forgot a d in the end of arrive since the sentence is past tense. PattyMan 04:40, 16 June 2012 (UTC)


In Pokémon Black, I captured a Roggenrola. My Roggenrola has an Everstone. My question is; what should I do with the Everstone or how could I get the Everstone? --Station7 (talk) 13:28, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I just loked at the page and saw why it was therefore. I'm sorry if I bothered you. --Station7 (talk) 13:29, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I just put that the Orange league was not present in any games, and I didn't know you were in charge of this site. Sorry, again.
