Attention: Before you post

Since this has happened repeatedly, here is a list of Pokémon belonging to rivals/recurring in the anime that I wish you would not ask me about making them in your userspace. These Pokémon did have articles before but the Editorial Board agreed upon them being merged into the Trainer's article. Here is the list:

  • Gary's Nidoking
  • Gary's Nidoqueen
  • Drew's Flygon
  • Drew's Masquerain
  • Drew's Absol
  • Drew's Butterfree
  • Harley's Banette
  • Harley's Ariados
  • Harley's Octillery
  • Harley's Wigglytuff
  • Paul's Azumarill
  • Paul's Stantler
  • Paul's Weavile
  • Paul's Gliscor
  • Paul's Ninjask
  • Paul's Drapion
  • Barry's Heracross
  • Zoey's Mismagius
  • Nando's Sunflora
  • Kenny's Alakazam
  • Kenny's Breloom
  • Ursula's Plusle and Minun
  • Casey's Elekid
  • Happy - Ritchie's Butterfree
  • Cruise - Ritchie's Pupitar
  • Rose - Ritchie's Taillow
  • Volkner's Raichu
  • Volkner's Luxray

There are more than this, but most of the others were Gym Leader/Elite Four/Frontier Brain Pokémon and I have yet to be asked about recreating them.

If you would be so kind, try to avoid asking about these Pokémon. The main reason being the obvious one: they were already here and deemed unnotable. The second is about history preservation for the articles that were redirected and not deleted before then. If the decisions were to ever be overturned, the redirects that exist now can be reverted back to the way the were and history will be preserved. Moving a userspace article over the redirect will erase all the history from before. I recommend saving your work on an external program for use at a later time or write what ever information you have into the Trainer article itself. Thank you for understanding. --ケンジガール

Georgia's Beartic

As it is confirmed to have a big role in BW081, could I ask your permission to recreate my user page for Beartic ready for mainspacing at the end of May (It's notabilaty, I think, is definatley on par with Luke's Zorua and Stephan's Sawk) Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:07, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

We should wait until after BW081 airs to see how big of a role it is. --ケンジガール 18:10, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I though so, will do. I have another question though, on Pokemon pages like Ash's Leavanny, should we put extra subheadings e.g. As a Sewaddle, As a Swadloon, As a Leavanny? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:17, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Opps, subbheadings within History is what I mean Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:25, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I don't think it's needed. --ケンジガール 18:32, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I was just thinking that it wouldn't work anyway on page like Ash's Infernape with the With Paul and With Ash headings Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 18:35, 25 April 2012 (UTC)


Shouldn't each villainous Team have a section with the Pokémon they've used ? (at least the most frequently)----DJWolfy 20:23, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

They already have Pokémon they've used on their designated pages. Using Team Galactic as an example; Pokémon are listed at Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, and the grunts' pages. --ケンジガール 21:03, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh right... didn't think about that. Thanks !----DJWolfy 21:07, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Ash's Leavanny

Could be unprotected. [[User:KyleRGiggs|Ray]][[User talk:KyleRGiggs|mond]] 16:53, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Done, thanks for the reminder. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 17:02, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Battle round --> Contest battle

Hello Kenji, I wanted a second opinion about something. A user recently moved Battle round to Contest battle. Do you agree with this? My only issue with the move is that the consistency between the rest of the Contest pages it is grouped with (ie. Appeals round, Dance round, Visual round) is lost. What do you think? --Pokemaster97 20:39, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Since they failed to start a discussion on the matter and didn't even bother to change the links, it should be moved back. They didn't even at least put a reason in the edit summary box which isn't a good thing either. --ケンジガール 22:58, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I'll go move it back then. Thanks. --Pokemaster97 23:02, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
The reason is the article itself. The content of the article pretty much explain the change, that's why I did not give a reason. The lost of consistency between the pages it is grouped with is not a good reason to revert the article's title. --Mikuri 02:13, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
You should always give reasons to why you move articles and preferably discuss it first. Even if you feel your move is self-explanatory in the article content. You should also relink anything that the page is linked on.
Was it ever called a Contest battle in the English dub? I can't recall what the dub name was personally. --ケンジガール 02:20, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
I don't know. I live in Brazil. --Mikuri 02:23, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Since we are an English wiki, it's important to be sure of what the English name is. I'll look into this. --ケンジガール 02:33, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Battle round is not a good name. The battles in Contests are very different from the 'normal' battles. Besides, there are several episodes with "Contest battle" in their names in Japan, and no one with "battle round" in the dub. The consistency is not a problem, even because the other Contest rounds are with the wrong names (according to the games, the right names are Visual Competition, Dance Competition and Acting Competition). --Mikuri 02:36, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
To be fair, prior to Best Wishes, all the dub did was make some joke of the title. It's not surprising that Battle Round would not be in it. And I'm not sure what point you are trying to make by bringing up the super contest rounds from the games. --ケンジガール 02:54, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
My point is, Pokemaster97's only issue with the change in the article's name is the consistency of the group of rounds, and this is not a problem, as the other rounds are with the wrong names and should be changed to the correct names. - unsigned comment from Mikuri (talkcontribs)
What rounds have incorrect names? --ケンジガール 03:09, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Appeals round, Visual round and Dance round, they are called Acting Competition, Visual Competitiond and Dance Competition, respectively, in the games. --Mikuri 03:18, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, yes. I see now. I was looking over here and couldn't figure out that you meant the table. That table is a bit confusing to begin with and should be changed up.
Also, I found out that it is called Contest battle in the English dub as well so it is being moved back. --ケンジガール 03:22, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
I was not aware that those articles were named incorrectly so thank you for pointing that out. There was some confusion because of the way the articles were named. I have moved "Battle round" back to "Contest battle". --Pokemaster97 03:25, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! --Mikuri 03:36, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
Nevertheless, remember to discuss a page move on its talk page before doing it. - poikins 05:56, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
