Please leave new messages at the bottom of this page.
  • Many a user kindly borrowed this table from this user, and I wanted to conform!
  • Card images are going to be part of Platinum standard...we are getting them no matter what.
  • I changed my Aim name to svpelican10, so change it if you have my old one!

Pokémon-ex images

Just got 52 of 'em for articles that need images. At some point this week, starting with RS, I'm gonna use the Japanese site to get all remaining EX-required images. Cipher (Talk) 22:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Awesome. MaverickNate 23:18, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


So your for sure that the policy has changed for edits on userspace because i have been hit by 2 confusion ataacks and now my HP is at 3. -- Landfish7 16:34, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Um, I got hit again by confusion attack, except lucky for me i had a hyper potion but any way, who is Chocolate I heard a lot about you too. Is that user doing something to frustrate you?? I dont mean to get personal but it seems pretty major. -- Landfish7 17:14, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't get into that if I were you. It's a long story. Cipher (Talk) 17:15, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
VERY LONG. You can find out yourself by looking at Chocolate's talk page archive, however.--RexRacer -talk 17:18, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
When you guys say long you aren't kidding. Chocolate is one drama king!!!!-- Landfish7 20:30, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
For a second i was going to try to fix things but understanding him it would never work. -- Landfish7 20:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm not a drama king anymore. My personality and feelings are different now. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 20:33, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
You dont have to butt in, but that's good that your gettiong a hold of your self. Just please stay that way and stay here. -- Landfish7 20:54, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Discussions on Main Pages

This is the only edit i'm making on a User talk: namespace. Does the rules apply for talk pages on main articles because i don't want to get in more trouble. I was going to make a comment on sir aaron to help with a small problem i saw and i don't know if i should or not. -- Landfish7 00:35, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Have we suddenly scared users out of commenting on talk pages? You can go ahead kid. TTEchidna 22:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


What is so bad about it? We are supposed to use link templates whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:20, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Not the G template. That's to be used when there's a better reason to use it than having something like Pokémon Trainer. Trainer is not a game. G was made and intended for games. TTEchidna 22:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
So, basically, you discourage the usage of convenient unintended shortcuts that some link templates provide? Such as using the AP template for hat or friends? I'm Missingno. Master. Come see my new and improved user page, and tell me what you think! 02:57, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
the hat and friends thing actually makes sense. he wasnt using it at all. he just used it to link Pokémon because hes too lazy to click the little é in the palette. apparently you are too. -- MAGNEDETH 03:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I am not lazy. We are simply supposed to link templates whenever possible, or so I thought. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 03:12, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
you were using a GAME template to link Pokémon to itself. that is LAZY. we dont link Pokémon every time its mentioned, and you know that. or, you SHOULD know that by now. -- MAGNEDETH 03:29, 24 January 2009
Wait, you can DO that? Pokémon *checks preview* WOAH! It actually works! Dang, you gotta admit, such shortcuts are cool. Sure, it's lazy, but then again, so am I! I'm Missingno. Master. Come see my new and improved user page, and tell me what you think! 03:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
yes it works, yes its nifty, but dont do it. -- MAGNEDETH 03:38, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

DETH referred this question of mine to you: Do you know if the shortcuts {{g|}} and {{ga|}} are both for the game template? --Bulbapedian - Talk 00:07, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea why he sent you to me. I really don't know. Talk to TTE. MaverickNate 02:05, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry about that, i didn't know, is there anything i can do to help...?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:30, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Whoops, not today, i have to get off now. again, sorry.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:31, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Could just look at Special:Contributions/Cold to see the pages Cold edited. Anyway, can I help out? What all needs to be done? — Laoris (Blah) 22:35, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Trainer card switchover to the new template. Make sure that pre-DP Supporters and Stadiums are classed as Trainers, with subclass being Supporter and Stadium. Yeaaaaah. TTEchidna 22:38, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
So basically like the change you made to Balloon Berry (Neo Revelation 60)? — Laoris (Blah) 22:43, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


For Pokémon ex, can I italicize the ex? Also, can I change "the card's" to "this card's?" ht14 04:37, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

I guess so. MaverickNate 05:52, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
For the move, it was just an idea. Some people may not know of its referral, but if you don't like, got it. ht14 05:00, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

You know

Every LT could be called a laziness template. I'm just wondering where we draw the line between Template:M and Template:Soa.- unsigned comment from Martonimos (talkcontribs)

I talked it over with TTE about Template:Fi, and we both agreed it was a laziness template. We usually discuss whether one is or not, and then TTE has a system to figure out which are as well. MaverickNate 12:04, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to start paring down the list. We are starting to get some ridiculous ones. I'm assuming that, since Template:La was similar to Fi, we'll want to phase that one out as well? --((Marton imos)) 20:51, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Eh, perhaps. It's really not that hard to type out a link like that one manually, and the LT for it just makes it more confusing, IMO. We already have trouble getting people to use LTs, it doesn't help that there's so many of them. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 21:54, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


In case you haven't noticed, other pages have multiple question marks in their titles. So why can ????? not have question marks in its title? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:43, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

TCG Images

After much splurging on eBay, I've got way more scans, including these. For the pages without images I've added them, and for cards marked unsatisfactory I've updated them, but what about the others? There's a few, uh... "different quality" images that are not inadequate as such, but (I think) not as good as my scans. The issue is that they say stuff like they were "donated by the very lovely people at _______" and I don't want to insultingly change all these images all over the place, and yet... >_< I'm not very good at this wiki stuff. Anyway, you'd seem to know, so what do you think? Should I update those cards? (Or maybe you'd like to do it, with Modlike discretion?) --Alamedyang (talk) 02:21, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll answer. If the scans are marked in any way, do not use them. If they can be traced in any way back to the source by anyone with reasonable computer skills, do not use them. If they're generic, unmarked scans, by all means go ahead and upload them! --ニョロトノ666 03:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of TCG images... why is there a Fighting energy background for the card Medicham...? ht14 04:00, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Reverse holo. MaverickNate 04:01, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, so THAT's what you meant. I thought it was something different. ht14 04:06, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Platinum cards

Yo, I'm out for most of the day but I've uploaded all the drafts I made that PokéBeach posted scans for. I knew they'd come in handy. I've got a fair few more, I'd say between 20 and 30, for the next lot of cards. However, as I'm off in a few, I can't do the articles that I don't have drafts for. I'm going to try to get as many images for them uploaded into the archives, however, and they'll be in Category:Platinum at the Archives. As for sources, all remaining cards are from Galactic's Conquest except the following:

  • Entry Pack DPt: #37 Palkia, #38 Shaymin, #49 Grotle, #56 Monferno, #59 Prinplup, #60 Probopass, #68 Carnivine, #70 Chimchar, #71 Combee, #79 Lapras, 84 Nosepass, #85 Piplup, #98 Tauros, #100 Torkoal. I'm pretty sure that's all of them.
  • Giratina vs Dialga Deck Kit: #111 Miasma Valley.

I'm pretty sure that's everything. Any problems, let me know. Cipher (Talk) 11:33, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Also, one last note before I go, I'll upload all remaining card images when I get back tonight. Cipher (Talk) 14:12, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Administrator Status

In order to keep our Administrator list currently up-to-date, this is a generic "are you there" message.

You've been assumed as currently active and are already marked as such, but if you disagree with this, either edit the List of administrators to reflect your status (Active, Hiatus, Inactive), or reply here when you get the chance. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:12, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. I'm here and active MaverickNate 20:01, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

TCG Link

Thanks, message received. Like, I REALLY don't know much when it comes to the coding, I even remember asking Sol if when redirecting a page to also add the nowiki that shows up in his explanation.--DRAGONBEASTX 20:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Uh, another TCG thing, we DO add facts that some moves may be based off others. I mean, Scorch burns, simple as that, and Will-O-Wisp does that too. We DO add those facts in there.--DRAGONBEASTX 04:20, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Think about it. How many other attacks burn too? Lots. And you know what. Will-O-Wisp has appeared in the TCG as a different name (as itself). Furthermore, attacks have the potential to have different effects in the TCG. Confusion causes Paralysis, but not confusion. Explain that one? If you want to add it again, do so. It's just I don't think it is based off of that. MaverickNate 04:24, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi, Maverick. Could you delete Potpourri Island and move Popuri Island into "Potpourri Island" (yes, it's the same place).

I think you should also move Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 3 to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky because THIS IS the official title of the game. --Maxim 16:50, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

We have the Mystery Dungeon games at the "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon #" because of the first two. We can't move them without having crazy titles, and it isn't consistant. If you want to bring it up with someone else, like TTE, be my guest, but I'm not comfortable doing it myself. I'll deal with the island thing though. MaverickNate 16:52, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
We shouldn't have those pages titled so because those aren't real titles (not to mention that MD Sky is just a third version of Time/Darkness, not a new series). I think that they should be moved to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Team Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky respectively (the anime special would get the (anime) thing added to it). But yeah, it's a pretty revolutionary change, so I think I'll have to notify higher admins about that. --Maxim 17:05, 14 February 2009 (UTC)


If I cannot help. Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 04:09, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Okay then. Thank you for the advice ^^ Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 04:16, 15 February 2009 (UTC)


I started doing that a little late. . シンジShinjiLover,Edits 20:40, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Your edits to User:Missingno000/Kanto_Parliament

These edits were unnecessary. I ripped an election table off the wiki for a political simulation I am in, and I had to leave the computer before I was finished. 欠番 01:27, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect. They were necessary, as if those links were left for much longer, they would have made their way onto the Wanted Pages. As those links had no reason to appear on the Wanted Pages, they had to be removed. Mav was nice enough to relink them to your userspace, in the chance you may have wanted to make those to be subpages but accidentally linked them to the mainspace. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:39, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


Should the TCG cards with Resistances before the Gen. IV decks have the -30 next to their resistance on the infobox?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:23, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but I would prefer if you wouldn't add them yet, or change the infobox to the level field, just because, this weekend we are editing every card page anyway to update it to new style, so you might as well wait for then. MaverickNate 20:25, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry, I will notice that in later ocasions ;D Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 01:03, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi and sorry i didn't new that.Actually i saw some articles in which there was the same synopsis as that on seribii so that's why i thought that i should help bulbapedia. I am sorry & i won't do it further. Thnx For Telling me. --adyniz 14:13, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

My Sandbox

Hey, it says that you have deleted my sandbox, am I but allowed to make a new one??? --Theryguy512 17:40, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. That was just because mainspace info was just sitting in sandboxes, and I asked if I could add all the info I could get out of them and delete the pages. You're perfectly welcome to recreate it. MaverickNate 17:44, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. --Theryguy512 17:46, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Re:Template g

Can you explain to me why this template should not be used in TCG pages? On a related note, I want to tell you that I want to contribute with better things for the TCG and TFG pages. So can you give me some links, going through which, I can learn a thing or two about the do-s and don't-s about editing these pages. I would also like to know how a user like me (who don't get to play the TCG) can help Project TCG. Thanks.--Sher-e-Bengal- 04:36, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Template:G was ruled as a laziness template, and I would prefer that it is not used in my project. Also, the only link that would do any good would be the non-existant TCG Mos, (which I will still have to write). I know nothing about the TFG, but I do believe that a new set of Figures is in limbo for release, and those will probably need pages soon. There are some plans I have for project TCG, but most of the things are done, all we are doing now is catching up on mini-projects that are somewhat just fix wording if you find it and such. My side of the TCG is kind of complete/put off until we get other things done, so you will probably have better luck asking Politoed666 if you could help with the Deck side of the TCG. Sorry. MaverickNate 04:47, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok. I'll ask Politoed666 later about this. And thanks for explaining why {{g}} should not be used. I'll keep it in mind.--Sher-e-Bengal- 04:51, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
