I will reply on this talk page. I do not like breaking discussions up onto multiple talk pages.

Just wondering...

You've blocked two or three users just now on the grounds that they are bots. I can't help but wonder, how can you tell? They haven't made any edits yet. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 03:41, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

I am unable to explain how I can tell that such accounts are bots, as it may allow the bot operators to avoid such detection. However, trust me when I say: If I block an account for being a bot, it is a bot. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 03:59, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
OK. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 04:03, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Need some help

A message that I already sent to Kenji-Girl is that the user {{u|ShalashaskaADV]] has been making edits only on his talk page repeatedly, even after administrators had asked him to stop. Could you look into it? -Tyler53841 08:37, 18 February 2011 (UTC)


Because its title was protected, I had to create it on userspace. Could you mainspace it? Here is proof. And I'm aware that Adyniz has also a page titled "BW023", but if you look closely, it's actually for BW025.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 11:11, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Messages From Blocked Users

About half an hour ago ( 7:30pm London ) a blocked user messaged me to ask if i can make some edits. While i have no uncertanty towards doing it, i was just wondering if this goes against any rules. The user in question is Rokuto i believe. Just wanted to know before i do anything Robster10 19:56, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, making edits for blocked users is a violation of the rules, so don't make any edits for them. If you could, please send me a copy of the e-mail (including sender's e-mail address & date/time) using this page. Thanks. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:01, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Did i do the right thing? i feel slightly grassy but if i know its for the greater good then id feel better Robster10 20:31, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you did the right thing. No need to worry, we shall be dealing with all of this very soon. Thank you for your assistance. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:37, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Pokemon Podcast


Hope all is going well. I'm not sure if you remember my post you blocked back in October of 2010. Anyways, I started making a Bulbapedia page for "The Pokemon Podcast"

It was taken off because: The cast started this summer, it's far too new to be notable enough for an article. (Bulbacast & WTPT have been around for much, much longer than just a few months.) You didn't add any categories, nor did it have the notice for falling under Project Fandom. (Both of these are extremely important, and should never be forgotten.)

Then you said: Now, if the podcast continues to grow and shows notability by the end of the year, we may allow an article to be created.

Well funny story now. The Pokémon Podcast has the most reviews and is the highest rated Pokemon podcast EVER in iTunes, with over 120 five star reviews. On top of that it has 400 likes on the Facebook group, more then WTPT and PUCL. They also have a growing community of 250+ members. I'm not saying that I should be the one to edit it, because I'm not good at that stuff, but I think that ban should be lifted so someone could make the page.

Also, they are selling shirts to donate money to Japan. Pretty cool.

Anyways, hope to hear from you!

Committhistomemory 20:06, 13 April 2011 (UTC)committhistomemory

We'll look into the notability of this podcast. If it's deemed to be notable enough now for an article, we'll let you know & allow a page to be created. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:27, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm quite bored

Sorry, I'm a little bit bored and I never use my account once again. Can you delete my account and my messed accounts? PLEASE. The reason why...because I never use my account and little bit bored. I will create a new one soon if you delete it. Is that acceptable? Luis Felix(Appreciate me here | Sandbox | Party) 08:09, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

There's a couple of problems with that idea.
  1. Accounts cannot be deleted for any reason. (We can, however, ban the account so it's inaccessible.)
  2. If you're just going to make another account, what's the point of getting rid of the account you already have?
Unless you have a legitimate reason for us to ban your current account & allow you to come back with a "fresh start," the answer is no. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:27, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Battrio question

Hey Kogoro —

Umeko's been offline for about ten days or so and I have this project ready to go and just need your approval. I'm planning on doing a prev-next template for Project Battrio puck pages, to go at Template:BattrioPuckPrevNext (or some other location). I have the code literally in the editor — I just need the go-ahead. Is this okay?

(You can respond on Umeko's talk page if you want - I asked her before checking whether she's been active. It's fine if you reply here too.) chiefboztalk 23:28, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Never mind. Umeko and I are talking, so you can ignore this. chiefboztalk 23:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)


So there's not going to be a page until it's out? ARCEUSVICTINI 13:59, 1 June 2011 (UTC)


Every time I try to edit the top of a page, it will automatically download a file called "index.php" and keep me on the page that I'm on. I just uploaded a picture of Lily of the Valley island and this glitch is preventing me from doing that. I decided to contact you because you are the tech director and this is likely a tech issue either with Bulbapedia or my computer.

Torch 15:05, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

It usually happens when the "Alt" key on your keyboard is pressed. Whenever you try to click on any link, a file i.e "index.php" or a php file with the link's name will be downloaded automatically if you press Alt. So, kindly check the keys of your keyboard whether it's fine or not. It should fix the problem that you're having. Thank you, have a nice day ahead. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 15:17, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

I am sure the alt key is not being pressed. I just tried with them pulled up. I will see if there is something wrong.

Torch 15:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I'm sorry then it may be something else that I'm unaware of. I'll try to pass it to Kogoro as soon as she's available. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 17:53, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
In your Preferences, under the Editing tab, do you have "Use external editor by default (for experts only, needs special settings on your computer)" checked? If so, make sure it's unchecked. If you also have "Use external diff by default (for experts only, needs special settings on your computer)" make sure that is unchecked as well. Jellotalk 18:57, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Log Out Troubles

For some reason it keeps logging me out everytime I go to a new page. It says something about session hijacking? Can you help me with this? PkmnChmp5 20:33, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Happens from time to time. Just hit the F5 and it should say logged in. I have it happen to me sometimes too. Not really much a problem I think. Frozen Fennec

Can't create my Userpage

I am new to Bulbapedia and I don't get how to edit the mainspace and all that. Can you help me with that? - unsigned comment from Mr. RPG (talkcontribs)

You've already been making mainspace edits. Any page without a prefix (Prefixes include User:, Bulbapedia:, Template:, and many others.) is a mainspace page. As for your userpage, you have yet to meet the requirements to edit the User: namespace. Just keep helping the encyclopedia out, and you'll eventually be able to edit your userpage. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:17, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Thank you and I will do what you told me to do. Just keep helping the encyclopedia out. Merci Beaucoup. Je suis un Canadien. - unsigned comment from Mr. RPG (talkcontribs)
Sounds good. Please be sure to sign your talk page comments with four tildes (~~~~) after you leave them. Thanks - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:42, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Top contributors

According to my Preferences, I've made 8,908 mainspace edits before this day, which is a little more than Littlmiget123's edits. Did you accidentally forget me or do the Preferences include some edits that don't count towards the TC list?--Den Zen 14:29, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Pages which are or have since become redirects don't count. And it's not a matter of forgetting - the numbers are provided by a software script. Werdnae (talk) 20:51, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Additionally, the number in your preferences is overall edits. The TC list records mainspace edits only. —darklordtrom 05:05, 3 September 2011 (UTC)


will not stop adding trivia. give him/her a cooldown block, please.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 16:23, 19 September 2011 (UTC)


Why do you always block my way --Alipikachu 14:35, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

You're not editing within the spirit of Bulbapedia's mission. You're simply trying to force the system into allowing you to edit the userspace. Such abuse of the system will not be tolerated, as the userspace is a privilege that is meant to be earned. If you can't follow the rules & edit with Bulbapedia's mission in mind, you're just going to have a lot of trouble with the staff. So please, take some time to read up on the rules. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 14:41, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Don't understand

Why did you revert all of my minor edits to the project notice pages? I don't find anything wrong with linking to the Pokémon franchise pages. I thought you are supposted to link whenever possible. Alot of the messages referred to them, can you explain what I did wrong for next time? You never stated a reason. Thank You. --Pokemaster97 23:22, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

  1. Edits to project notices need to be approved. This can be done either by the Project Leader, or by a Staff Member of Administrator level or higher.
  2. Links in project notices should be exceptionally relevant to the span of the project itself. BerryDex -> Berries, Music -> Songs, CDs, and Musicians. Etc.
While Pokémon is an important page, it really doesn't need to be linked to via every single page cause of the project notices. Linking whenever possible is not the idea, otherwise every instance of "Snivy" would be linking (which isn't done, cause that's excessive). Linking when something first appears in an article, and in the case of templates, when it's relevant to link. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I understand. Sorry :( --Pokemaster97 23:46, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Now, now. Don't be like that Mr. Echidna, you know that's no way to talk on a talk page. Don't make me have to use my magical powers on you. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 00:02, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

On my talk page

Hey Kogoro, when can I edit my user page? Is there an amount of articles I have to edit before I can type things on my user page? Thanks. Totozapper 09:38, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

There are specific, but secret, requirements in order to be able to edit the userspace. So, unfortunately, I can't tell you what those requirements are. Just keep editing the mainspace for a while and eventually you will be able to edit your userpage when you check it. Sorry I can't offer much in the way of information, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:41, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
K thanks very much! Totozapper 07:37, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

You're cool

You played Pokémon Rumble Blast that far? Good job if this is true.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R 11:45, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Non-wiki discussion such as this should really be conducted on the forums. Yes, I've completed the story of Pokémon Rumble Blast. So, yeah, thank you on the compliment. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:56, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Re:Code of Conduct

It Was Venipede anyways, so i fixed it. It was my mistake, i did not saw what happened first, but it was Venipede anyways.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 07:34, 9 November 2011 (UTC)


Hi, Please see this [wikipedia]. The page that I created was the PART 2 (i.e 2nd part ). BW059 along with BW060 are scheduled to air at the same time in japan.
BW059 - トルネロスVSボルトロスVSランドロス!(前編) "Tornelos vs. Voltolos vs. Landlos! (Part 1)"
BW060 - トルネロスVSボルトロスVSランドロス!(後編) "Tornelos vs. Voltolos vs. Landlos! (Part 2)" --✔Poke.geek✔ 17:40, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a viable source, nor is it an official source. The user who added that episode to that Wikipedia article cites no official source. If you can present an official source for that episode, I will restore it. But until then, it remains protected from speculative creation. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 17:46, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
This is not an official source , but Japanese Bulbapedia ( ポケモンWiki) has a article on BW060 - see this. - unsigned comment from Poke.geek (talkcontribs)
As you said, they're not official either. While they are our Japanese partner (They are not "Japanese Bulbapedia."), it does not mean that because they have a premature article for something we must make one prematurely as well. Bulbapedia policy states to wait for an official announcement, and that will be followed. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 17:54, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh. Okay, Sorry then. I'll wait till the official announcement. --✔Poke.geek✔ 17:56, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Battle Royale and team battle EX-6

Well, The power requirements and the "claims" are from a few videos Where people actually PLAY the Levels. You apprently haven't played Battle Royale and Team Battle EX-6 Yet.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:13, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Provide these videos. The difficulty rankings I have for all of these have been ???. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 12:17, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
[1] Battle Royale
[2] Team Battle

--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

OK you win. but every single list about battle royales and team battles have the power level listed.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:23, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
If the difficulty is listed as ???, we don't add assumptions based upon player recommendations, additionally, Team Battles never have a difficulty level. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 12:34, 16 November 2011 (UTC)


Sorry about the mix-up. Anyways I've stopped editing my User page like you asked me too. But am I allowed to edit other pages or do I have to wait till tomorrow to edit other pages as well. Pardon my lack of etiquette, I'm still kind of new to this. - unsigned comment from Naui (talkcontribs)

The only pages you are not to edit anymore today are pages with the prefix User:, you may still edit any page that does not have the User: prefix. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 08:18, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
okay got it so I can still continue to edit BW049?Naui 08:21, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes. Just remember to use the preview button, as to not accidentally flood the Recent Changes. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 08:26, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
Okay got it, sorry for the trouble.Naui 08:30, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Pokémon: Den of Ages

Why is PDoA not notable enough to warrant a page? Its mentioned in another page and has a large, striving community and continued development. - Navarr 22:56, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Just because something is mentioned on another page, doesn't mean it's notable enough for a page of its own. There's hundreds of different fandom members & fan sites mentioned on pages, which simply don't meet notability standards. By what I can see, without installing their illegal software, their community isn't what I would call striving. Can you offer up some exact information? Daily visits, total number of players, total number of active players, and similar information? As for continued development, the page you created noted that the original title wasn't under any further development and that they've moved onto a sequel, of sorts. Also, do you happen to be connected to the creation, maintenance, staffing, or hosting of the Pokémon: Den of Ages game? - Kogoro - Talk to me - 10:14, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Can you please move my first mainspace article

I guess you know why I'm messaging you. Can you please move my first mainspace article (you know how hard it is to make a mainspace article) that is, User:Poke.geek/Professor Westwood V's Slowbro to Professor Westwood V's Slowbro. And are there any more norms to be fulfilled ? -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 18:44, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Cache update

Hello, Kogoro! When I uploaded Phoebe's Dusclops in January, I waited days and the image was still wrong sized. Maybe Bulbapedia has changed this in the last update, IDK. Anyways, is there a method I can use to prevent this when I upload? |) u |( e 15:38, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

We didn't have this CDN caching system in January, and the Archives didn't like to sync up properly with Bulbapedia at that time. With the new system, an image should update to the newest version within 24 hours of the upload. Just need to be patient, the images will definitely update on their own now. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 15:43, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

One question

When Sunglasse Krokorok is moved will it be named Ash's Krokorok or Ash's Sunglasse Krokorok if it happens? Chomper4 19:49, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

No, I don't think so because Sunglassses Krokorok is not Ash's Pokémon. -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 19:51, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
Sunglasses Krokorok just follows him. -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 19:53, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Would have been nice if I was given a few minutes to possibly answer a question on my own talk page ^^; Anyway, as Dennou Zenshi said, the article would be renamed "Ash's Krokorok" if Ash ever catches it. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 20:02, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
