Hi there. What I meant was to put your username into your signature so that people can tell who you are when they read your comments. Sorry for any confusion. —darklordtrom 10:40, 20 July 2010 (UTC)


Please remember in future that you must get permission from an admin before editing templates, especially high-use ones such as {{User Champion}}. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 20:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)


I wouldn't. You're just going to make too many redlinks, which aren't acceptable. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 21:42, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Card Update.

Types are always capitalized. Grass not grass. No exceptions. MaverickNate 04:50, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Maybe I only checked on one that you had lowercase. If this is the case, no worries. Keep up the good work. MaverickNate 04:58, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Carddex is a dangerous territory. It isn't something you can just copy past from another page. MaverickNate 05:37, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
It's just that each card has a different dex entry, and Japanese entry, and even the older cards have different heights and weights. It is something that needs done separately for each card, and isn't really part of this update. MaverickNate 05:42, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey there.

Keep up the good work updating those templates. I know a congratulatory word is rare around here, so I just wanted to say that grunt work like that is really appreciated. So yeah. Thanks. --P o L i 17:29, 28 January 2011 (UTC)


I got it from,

Sorry for the confusion.

It has been deleted. Also, please remember to use ~~~~ after posting your message in a talk page. Masatoshitalk 23:07, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

No, still there,,

Although it wasn't there for a bit, it's up there currently.

I asked Google Translator, so I hope that sounds okay. I'd go on and thank you for the hours and hours of manual uploading you are putting into the Archives at the moment, but reading it would take up your valuable time. So I'll just leave this sparkly Porygon on your doorstep and you can play with it when you're finished. —darklordtrom 09:33, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I must say it was totally unexpected, but I appreciate the award. Thanks, trom, and the rest of the Archives Advisory Council! Also, it's ¡felicidades! :P Masatoshitalk 18:20, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Clap Clap Clap! Good for you!—★Pika3323 23:23, 14 February 2011 (UTC)


Photoshop? I don't think if I can acquiry it... It's not free (at least I don't know if it's free or not)... Marked +-+-+ 20:49, 22 February 2011 (UTC) PS.WTF, AnimGet makes VBA run on 7%. That's VERY low speed D: It takes me few seconds just to select Move button >.< Marked +-+-+ 21:01, 22 February 2011 (UTC) Ow... About 94 screenshots when Blaze Kick recorded. O-O Marked +-+-+ 21:10, 22 February 2011 (UTC) PS.It looks that in Gen III, HP bar doesn't dissappears like in Gen IV. All shots contained HP bar, I deleted shots with moves menu and after Oddish "dissappeared" (moment where it starts to reduce it's HP =P).

I certainly dunno where... as far as I know, AnimGet hasn't taken a toll on speed for me, the problem might be that you have Frame Skip set to 0, which is what I'd like you to do, I can't even play Platinum, but I do it for the sake of Bulbapedia. :P
94 screenshots are just as fine, don't expect any move to take less than 70 frames, I even had 300 on one.
Well, if you use draining moves, such as Absorb or Giga Drain, you'd need to have your Pokémon hurt a bit so we can see the magic of those moves, until they replenish their HP. So, if III doesn't hide the HP bar, the first frame before the move begins is the first frame to stay, the frames before should be deleted. And the first frame after the move ends (with effects as well) should be the last, delete all frames after it. Masatoshitalk 21:23, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
[censor], megaupload says something that my IP address is downloading about 641MB file...EPIC FAIL for IP. >.< Really Adobe is required? Or... maybe trial version is capable of doing things? (rather no =P) Marked +-+-+ 15:07, 23 February 2011 (UTC) PS."don't expect any move to take less than 70 frames," - Orly? On Ember, I got 71 WITH counting moves menu screenshots and after effects ended ("blinking", effectiveness sounds, etc.). Without them, I got... 66 screenshots.... Marked +-+-+ 15:15, 23 February 2011 (UTC) Dammit, screenshots are 1152x788... Marked +-+-+ 20:21, 23 February 2011 (UTC) I hate Photoshop. It wants to save that all screenshots into .gif, not .png >.< Marked +-+-+ 20:33, 23 February 2011 (UTC) WHAT? It doesn't save in .gif. It saves in a stupid format, .psd. EVEN MORE EPIC FAIL... Nevermind, restarted and it's .png now. Marked +-+-+ 20:37, 23 February 2011 (UTC) I accidentally did batch script so that Ember shots are saved under Absorbxxx.png (where xxx is that 3 digit something) lol. I will just upload it as a new version, so name of file here won't change =P Okey done... Just last frame... awww still has animation (there is flame)... Need to do stuff again, for that frame =D Marked +-+-+ 20:48, 23 February 2011 (UTC) Finally... about 1 hour, finally created animation. Of Blaze Kick (Ember's one is "corrupted" it looks that few frames are missing). Saving, now uploading. Deleted one frame after animation ended, the one left has 1000ms (it's last) delay, and the frame on top (0th, lol) has 500ms. Nothing seems missing. Now just upload. And then go to bed =P Marked +-+-+ 21:01, 23 February 2011 (UTC) PS.Uh what? 2,14 MB file size... damn. And resolution, well Photoshop "distorted" it, it's 240x164, while static would be 240x160... Small difference, but stil difference =P

Can't upload. I press upload, but nothing happens, no session loss data stuff, no log-out, no warning. NOTHING. Just it looks like browser is loading page, but page doesn't changes. And how it's about 2,12MB, while one of yours has about 1/3 of that? Marked +-+-+ 21:13, 23 February 2011 (UTC) PS.Okey, I have to go =P

Uploaded Metal Claw animated... I still see old picture below "file, file history" and other stuff, just in other resolution. It didn't synchronized for me =P Also, it's almost 2MB file >.< Wtf, how it's THAT big? Marked +-+-+ 08:47, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, some of the screenshots might be heavier than some others due to reasons a non-ignorant (not me) would understand, but so far, so good, happens to me as well with this file. Now, you need to edit those summaries, since that file is now animated, you should state so with {{anipng}}, which will add the file to the following categories: Animated images, Special images and Animated png files. And can you please edit the Generation III thing? It should link to Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Emerald and FireRed and LeafGreen to make it look less ambiguous. That would be it for now. Now, regarding talk pages; would you mind indenting your replies? Instead of just writing after your message, hit Enter and go to a new paragraph, since I used one :, you should use two, I'll use three in my reply, you'll use four, until we need to reset the indentation. This way is a bit less confusing for other people, thanks. :P Masatoshitalk 14:26, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Okey, file seems right but... In article, it doesn't animate. It's just that first frame that's is skipped in animation. I _have_ Firefox. Marked +-+-+ 13:32, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry, it's normal. When they're thumbnailed, the animation won't play. Masatoshitalk 14:03, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Then how to the hell a Metal Claw of generation II IS animated in thumbnail? Marked +-+-+ 15:19, 25 February 2011 (UTC) PS.Fly in Generation III also animates in thumbnail.
Because Metal Claw II isn't thumbnailed, it's at full size. And Fly in Generation III is a .gif, that explains the (rather broken) animation. Masatoshitalk 15:40, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Okey, Fly I uploaded. Little slower (55ms instead of 33ms), because it looked like something was missing (part of animation in 2nd stage looked like it was too fast) but checked game, and it seems right... Marked +-+-+ 10:23, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Well, the file looks correct, but mind if I ask you to have a slightly longer pause in the middle? And one more thing, I'm trying to make the animations more... like you're actually playing the game, would you mind using it against a higher leveled Pokémon? The gap between your Pokémon and the Wild Pokémon is a bit too wide. Masatoshitalk 11:08, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Uh, but it's lvl 70 about, and highest levelled wild in Yellow is 60 (Ditto 1% encounter rate in Cave), and trainer is 65lvl Gary' starter. And Gary has also in range of 50s =P I can't upload Surf. 111 (including that skipped) frames (2,77MB). OUCH. Marked +-+-+ 11:16, 26 February 2011 (UTC) PS.I made Surf animation before I read your answer =P
resetting indentation - Well, then try to get the highest leveled Pokémon you can, a twenty-level gap sounds good, but a seventy-level gap is kinda too much :P. Also, if you're making P.S., I'd suggest you to do it like if you were posting a new reply, followed by the signing. 2,77MB? You probably have the saving of the .pngs in the highest quality, I'm not really sure, that'd be the most coherent answer. Masatoshitalk 11:35, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

How do you work so fast?!?

Whenever I check the recent changes, someone's making 20 edits in 2 minutes! How do you find all that stuff to edit?!? (I can't seem to find much...) - unsigned comment from Pokabu82 (talkcontribs)

Well... I was dwelling around, until I found something on {{Movegen}} that needed to be edited, as we can't use .gifs, we should be using .pngs, so I edited that on the template, then I used this, found in the toolbox, that gave me stuff to edit. Masatoshitalk 22:49, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Posting in dead threads?

I am looking and can't find any rules for posting in dead threads including how long it is before a thread is considered dead, if the last post was a month ago and I have a question to add to it is it dead and should I just start a new thread under it? felinoel 07:36, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

...And why are you bringing this up to me? If this is about the forums, you should go here. But as far as I know, unless you have a good reason to reply to that thread, you should create a new one. Masatoshitalk 07:44, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Because you seem knowledgeable in this site's rules? No this isn't a Bulbagarden thread it is a Bulbapedia thread... I guess those aren't called threads then... I always get the terminology mixed up with threads, posts, categories, subcategories, and whatnot... whatever this right here is called is what I mean by thread. felinoel 07:54, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Talk page, then. Alright. You got me confused in there. Talk page policy will help you on that, specifically, this. It says the following: Please check the dates of a discussion before you reply to it. Unless there is good reason for revitalizing an old conversation, comments on sections older than six months old will be removed. This is because by this point the problems cited will have been cleared up. Masatoshitalk 07:57, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Well someone asked a question of which I have the same issue and the response to fix it doesn't seem to work for me, so the problem cited is cleared up for that person, just not for me... but it is only a month old so I can post there! Also, I didn't quite mean Talk Page, I meant a specific ummm category? in a talk page... so I guess I meant category? felinoel 08:02, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Every article, category, file and whatnot has a talk page, so I'm sure you're talking about that. Probably you're talking about a section (You know, the headings, like Posting in dead threads?). And sure, you can go ask, let's hope you can find a proper solution this time. Masatoshitalk 08:13, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
No no I was talking about what is in talk pages, but based on your statement what I meant was heading! Though that doesn't sound right... oh well I posted felinoel 08:20, 21 April 2011 (UTC)


HI Masatoshi, i was wondering if i could use your main template (your background border) for my user page, is this okay? (i will change it a little so it doesn't look carbon-copy and credit you for the original design) Azure/ChromeVoid42 17:25, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Sure, go for it. Masatoshitalk 02:16, 29 June 2011 (UTC)


If you think a beluga looks like a lugia, you have vision issues. There is no reference to this anyway in the manga or anime or TCG. Also there is NO reference to Lugia and the moon despite popular belief because Ho-oh IS referenced with the sun. If there is, list it. Thanks.

Just because it has plates it must be a stegosaurus? That is just stupid.

Fix grammar but dont add 101 reasons a name might exist. A wiki is meant to help, not confuse and create argument. --Since97andOn 23:23, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I have vision issues, but I abide to what might be the most logical relation to what Lugia resembles the most to, whether physiologically or in behavior. Not many of the Pokémon have their origins referenced anywhere in the anime, manga nor TCG, so I don't think it's a valid point, but if you can find a reference to it, then I'll agree with you. I do agree that Lugia wouldn't be really the moon nor a Beluga whale (on which I kind of agree with you); but I'll go with the introduction of the Silver screen, on where he's seen flying in the night with the moon behind, and me being a native Spanish speaker, on which the Lugia name would make sense with the Lu- part. It's not just because it has plates, it's also the shape he has, also shared by another dinosaur, the Plesiosaur. Lugia doesn't look like a Wyver at all, but that's my opinion anyways. Also, please, avoid the use of subjective words such as "Interestingly", since we try to be as neutral as possible. And I do agree that a wiki is meant to help, and not to confuse and create arguments, so I'm sorry if I made you angry, but I hope you understand my reasoning now. Masatoshitalk 23:51, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Wow, so because english people translate his name way back before there was no moon in the screen, you think that makes sense for the Luna connection?(No it doesn't) You said you agree with me twice by the way about the beluga hah, Your an admin FFS have some sense of duty and remove that gibberish.If your going with best "reasoning" List one example and end it. Why allow many theories? If theories are allowed, I think people need to know how Cubones are baby kangaskan. (That last part is a joke, but hopefully you understand me. I could really care less about these things, but the point of a wiki in the end is meant to inform people. Not lead people to believe Lugia is a Beluga, stegosaurus, plesiosaur and wyvern super hybrid.)--Since97andOn 00:32, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
