Hello, Kenji; I have a little request. Well, I don't know if you know, but I know something that I saw when I first saw BW022. This little error amused me when I saw the Japanese episode. However, I want to add it to the article but I honestly have no idea how to describe it. I was just wondering if you could help. Here's the scene. Ataro 22:59, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Business as usual

Ever think about these? Or do none fit? *should have ask you when I had you before* 8O 'Cause I'm about to start collecting. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 14:18, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

I guess Tarragon could work :) --ケンジガール 20:52, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
=O Okay. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 22:28, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Don Battle trainers

Should they really be considered Characters of the day? They'll appear in more than one episode. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:39, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't think they should. Except for the ones that got knocked out. Their future appearances are uncertain. But everyone else can be counted as recurring. --ケンジガール 22:42, 7 July 2011 (UTC)


Sam, if you've some time, drop by on AIM please. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 04:51, 8 July 2011 (UTC)


Exactly, what do you mean "thoughout the events?" Zorua kept switching from her normal self to taking Langley's form throughout the episode. But think about it, why would Zorua be there in the crowd with them? It makes no sense... Ataro 10:49, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Because Luke's in the crowd too... And she's Luke's Pokémon. She's even seen disguised as Langley when Bianca is trying to find her. --ケンジガール 10:53, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Well, if that isn't enough to convince you that it's an error. Would the fact that Langley two doesn't have a torso count as one? I checked...the background has the same color as her shirt, but no features (her shoulders are missing) Ataro 19:48, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
If you look between Kenyan's arm and body, you'll see that Langley/Zorua dose have a torso - the colour seen is that of Langley's clothes not the wall behind them Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 19:53, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I just explained that only the color is there. Nothing else. Ataro 19:59, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Still doesn't mean that one of them is not supposed to be Zorua. --ケンジガール 21:55, 9 July 2011 (UTC)


Unfortunately I wasn't able to gather the voices this week due to technical difficulties caused by my wonderful Satellite receiver. Sorry. Also, think you'll get on later today? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 13:44, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

No big deal. Don't worry about it :P Yeah, I'll be on later. Dunno when though. --ケンジガール 13:47, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Uh...YEAH SPEAKING OF THIS. :D I just realized we also get CN with Western Coast times on everything as well as Eastern. And since it hasn't aired on the Western channel yet, I just set that to record~ x3 We should have the credits within a few hours~ Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 14:22, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I thought it was acceptable to put down on the error section that this Pokémon did not recharge after using Hyper Beam. Other than that, it was the second gym battle in a row that a Pokémon didn't recharge after using the variation of the move*. PattyMan 01:46, 10 July 2011 (UTC)


Wouldn't it be better to place in the movie infobox templates opening and ending songs, like with episodes? For example, the twelfth movie had High Touch 2009 (I think) and Battle Cry. While there are multiple ending songs, they can all still be placed. :) tc²₆tc26 04:10, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Don't see why not. Sounds like a pretty good idea. --ケンジガール 04:16, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm done, but you may want to double check, especially the openings since we didn't have lists on those. tc²₆tc26 06:12, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

The seasons/series infoboxes

Is there a reason why we need both the series and season infoboxes when they can easily convey the same information in one template?

The links to the season pages in the seasons box could replace the links in the series box that just take you to a lower point on the listing page - that's really kind of redundant seeing as there are already links to the listing pages in the series template, and the contents tables at the tops of those pages make navigating easy enough already. Why not have one catch-all template? It would allow direct access between the episode listing pages and the season pages - something not possible at the moment.

This seems considerably more efficient, and can be placed at the bottom of all the pages that use either of the two templates without making the box bigger or losing anything other than the direct jumps in the series episode lists.

That does look better :O --ケンジガール 02:04, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Can you leave a thought on your own talk page?

I've been working on a Regigigas story, and it will be on my talk page, so can I put it on my talk page? Pikatwig 17:05, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Fan fiction is not allowed on Bulbapedia. Sorry. --ケンジガール 02:04, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank's for answering my question. You know on the Digimon wiki I asked a question and it took 2 whole days to finish answering a question! Pikatwig 17:48, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

But so you don't get many problems like certain people get a "Final Warning" because of dumb stuff on talk pages, can you put it on your own talk page? Pikatwig 02:25, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

"Fan fiction is not allowed on Bulbapedia." If you want to put it somewhere, it must go in the Writer's Workshop on the forums. Werdnae (talk) 02:42, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I meant personal thoughts! Oh boy, so if you guys don't want people to spam talk pages make them type it on there own talk pages so people like me don't get in any more trouble! Pikatwig 00:49, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Your Regigigas Story is a work of fiction, done by a fan. It is therefore fan fiction, and cannot be put anywhere on Bulbapedia, including your own talk page. Putting something which would be considered spamming a talk page on your own talk page is no more acceptable than putting it elsewhere. Werdnae (talk) 03:55, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
You should let people know this when they join so they don't have to ask. Pikatwig 14:34, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Well if new users took the time to read their welcome box on their talk pages you would see every policy and thing you know is there. Please do not act like you were not warned about this. --Pokemaster97 14:41, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Party templates?

I was just wondering if I could use the party templates, before I get in trouble. I already made it but I haven't clicked "Save page" yet--I'm worried I don't have permission. Thanks! --YoshisWorld 01:06, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

You're free to use them. They aren't my personal party templates anyway. They are the ones used for the character articles. --ケンジガール 02:04, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh, and while we're on the do you put shiny sprites in the party template? YoshisWorld 18:32, 13 July 2011 (UTC)YoshisWorld
Where you put in its Pokedex number, just add a "_s". This loads up the shiny sprite. Blake Talk·Edits 19:14, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Update on Giovanni's secretary...

Earlier, we discussed the possibilities of Meowth referring to Giovanni's secretary by the name Matori in the Japanese version of BW023. The Chinese and English dubs of the episode have since aired - she did not have any name at all in English but was named a name that can read as "Matori" in Chinese. With this, I think the issue deserves to be revisited regarding if the page should be moved to Matori or not. --The Great Butler 05:36, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

I've already been thinking about this ever since the episode aired. And I'm still thinking of what to do. - unsigned comment from Kenji-girl (talkcontribs)

Drew's Flygon

I think it is a simalur situation with Nando, where his Roselia/Roserade took a back seat to Kricketune. Drew's Flygon has been part of very significant battles, also assisted Drew while trying to capthure Arcanine and rescued May that time Harley and TR were working together. In May's epic battle with Drew at the end of the Kanto GF, Roselia did not even feature whereas Flygon did. I'm not saying Roselia is not notable but I'am saying Flygon is as notable, maybe more, but as always it is your call.

Perrmission to create Drew's Flygon? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:25, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Drew's Flygon was already deemed unnotable by the editorial board two years earlier. I don't think anything has changed to give it more notability.
I don't find Flygon to be the same situation as Kricketune. Kricketune obviously surpassed Roserade as Nando's main Pokémon. The same cannot be said for Flygon. Roselia is still Drew's main and most used Pokémon. And he used it against May in their last known battle together and appeared in cameos as Roserade. Flygon has yet to be seen again.
Sorry, but the answer is no. --ケンジガール 00:01, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
I soppose your right, I forgot about that last battle Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 08:45, 13 July 2011 (UTC)


I like to see your opinion about this(section Trainer, most cleary).--Hikaru Wazana 02:05 13 July 2011

Abuse category

Hi, a month and a half ago I (rudely) made a second edit to my userpage, and was put in the abuse category. Just wondering, would edits to spaces such as the walkthroughs count for the toll of setting me free, or does it need to be the mainspace? Because I don't want to make a bunch of fixes to the walkthroughs and still not be let off. Blake Talk·Edits 02:14, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Anime Episode Images May Be Temporarily Unavailable

Hey Kenji, I just wanted to let you know that over the next few days I'm going to be restoring and buffing the quality of lots of anime episode header images. I won't be changing their content, but instead saving the images and doing things like correcting color-balance and removing compression artifacts. As a result, it seems that upon uploading said images it takes 30-60 minutes for them to be cached across all of the bulbapedia servers, in between which they may disappear on the articles. The reason why I'm going on a bit of a spree is because I've noticed a ton of episode images that are either really dark, or have bad compression artifacts (i.e image noise, random squares of the wrong color, radioactive skin, etc). Just to clarify, I won't be swapping any of the images for different ones, I'll just boost the quality on the existing ones. If an image is so low quality that it's not salvageable, I'll take a screenshot of the episode from my Pokemon DVDs. In that case, I'll make sure it's the same scene as depicted in the original image. If you'd like to see an example of my work so far, you can compare the current image with the previous one for the episode image of EP001. I've actually uploaded replacements all the way up to EP005, but EP002-EP005 are still being cached and are only viewable when referenced directly at the archives. I hope you don't mind the temporary outage, but I think it's worth it :). I intend to do as many images as possible, I may even turn this into a personal project and over the next few months fix any low-quality images for the entire Pokemon series. Thanks for your time :) GetOutOfBox 23:45, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Just a followup, it seem to take longer for the archives to sync with the bulbapedia servers than I originally thought. Sometimes it's only an hour, but sometimes it's around 3-5 hours. Is there any kind I can put on the page to inform potential editors that the image will be available within a few hours? The thing is, the image displays correctly when clicked, but the thumbnail doesn't generate. Is there any trick to speed up the process? GetOutOfBox 14:31, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Another follow up, ignore the last message. It appears there was just a lot of server load last night, now the images seem to appear after half an hour or so. So no worries regarding outage times. Sorry for spamming your talk page :) GetOutOfBox 18:45, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
