"To match the games" blurb on Moo-Moo Milk (Neo Genesis 101)

Now, before you or anyone else tries to use an error in the trivia section to dismiss that blurb I inserted on the page in light of the HeartGold & SoulSilver reprint of the card bearing the name "Moomoo Milk", I've found some visual evidence that the blurb I inserted is, indeed, 100% accurate. Around 8:40 in this DP video (further evidence around 8:53) and around 2:30 in this Plat video (further evidence around 2:50) is enough to prove that the name on the HeartGold & SoulSilver in the reprint was indeed changed to match the video games. (For the record, I went ahead and left the error in trivia for now just in case you decided to revert me out of rage without looking at the visual evidence...) --Shiningpikablu252 18:43, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Does one have to be in a high place to use the template?

I noticed that I am on the Top Contributors of the Month list, so I am wondering if one has to be in a certain high position (such as fourth place) there to be able to use the 'this user has been a top contributor of the month' template. The answer is probably no, and possibly merely inclusion there would suffice, but I was wondering. Steph 00:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

You've made it. Go ahead. MaverickNate 00:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

I suppose this is the place to ask...

As per the Image reversion policy, I have to propose to one of the Admins about changing anime images. I'm not quite sure whose talk page to contact, but I decided to pick you since you're the editor-in-chief.

I was going to purpose that this image of Ursula's Plusle and Minun be changed to this one. It is a .png, at the same resolution, shows the entire bodies of the duo, and shows how they utilize teamwork. - Chosen of Mana - 16:34, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Fantastic idea. Thank you for asking. Go ahead. Do it by uploading a new version of the file. MaverickNate 19:56, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Done and done. - Chosen of Mana - 20:10, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

I trust you'll be able to take what I didn't blatantly rip from other TCG pages and make them sound TCG-ish. 8D 梅子 16:46, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! You're so wonderful. No if I can just find out the numbers. MaverickNate 17:39, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Khoury edit

Er... what was the purpose of removing the voice actor credit link on the page for Khoury? For that matter, do you know what happened to that actor's page? The S 15:44, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Move pics

Why did you get rid of the pics that Zoroark put up? They were good pics? Littlmiget123 18:44, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

They are unnecessary, and if we were to keep them, they would need to be pngs. MaverickNate 20:05, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, alright then. Littlmiget123 21:51, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Why is this page's card text all screwy? R.A. Hunter Blade 04:09, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

It looks to be just the width of Template:Trainertext. It kind of looks like how newspapers spread out a line of text to fill the entire space. I don't know why it does that, but it doesn't seem like that big of a deal. MaverickNate 04:18, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. Because I haven't found any other TCG pages that look like that, although I'm clicking Random page. So far it seems to be only this card... but if you have no problem with it, then ok. R.A. Hunter Blade 04:30, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
We are in the process of colorizing all the TCG templates. It'll go away eventually. MaverickNate 04:32, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Alright. R.A. Hunter Blade 04:41, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Not sure if this is the right place to ask...

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but is there anyone out there who could rip the Sugimori Charizard and Venusaur from Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen boxes (WITHOUT the FireRed/LeafGreen logo), just like we did with the Sugimori art that are only on the packaging of videogames, different than usual?

It's better but I'd keep the tag on it just to advertise we need an even better one. I'd like to see one with all of Venusaur's Petals, and hopefully, keeping the tag on it will alert people to try to get one with them. MaverickNate 19:07, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Boxart Venusaur.png Boxart Charizard.png

How're these? Charizard's teeny, but full.--immewnitythemew 21:42, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Made a big Charizard, but the bits of the wings have different colors and a bit of the Pokémon logo can be seen on one of the wings due that they came from 2 different sources. If only somebody could make them the same colors... Or upload a bigger Charizard.

Charizard Box Art

Regarding Poké-POWER

Is Porygon-Z LV.X (Majestic Dawn 100) the only card with more than one Poké-POWER? If not, what examples are there? ht14 23:36, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

There's Igglybuff (EX Crystal Guardians 21) and I'm pretty sure there is a snorlax somewhere. MaverickNate 23:39, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
That's all I remember right off the top of my head MaverickNate 23:40, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I found the Snorlax. But... if Porygon-Z the only one with two Poké-POWERs instead of one Poké-POWER and one Poké-Body? ht14 23:42, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. MaverickNate 23:42, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Would you consider it trivia-worthy then? ht14 23:46, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Not until we know for sure another does not exist. But, if there isn't another one, it might as well. MaverickNate 23:47, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I've just run a check on the PokéPedia and on the PCL website and I am 99% certain that Porygon-Z is the only card with two Poké-Powers. Everything else with two Pokémon Powers has one Poké-Power and one Poké-Body. As I say though, I could be wrong - I'll check again just to make sure. Cipher (Talk) 16:05, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Re: Categories

Ah, ok. I just wasn't entirely sure which categories Super Mario Wiki would fall into, and didn't know which categories existed, so that's good. --Garlic Man 13:12, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to have to do splits and overhauls on cards depicting milk without any other warning...

However, it wasn't my whim that caused the splits and overhauls. It was a Team Compendium ruling that forced the overhauls. I didn't want to have to do it, but the ruling states that Moo-Moo Milk and Moomoo Milk are different cards entirely simply because of the slight differences in name and effect. 2 damage counters per heads on Moo-Moo Milk, 3 damage counters per heads on Moomoo Milk, that apparently got Team Compendium to see them as two different cards. As such, it falls into the same situation as Energy Charge as opposed to Power Charge, where we also see them as two different cards due to Team Compendium saying so despite similar effects. I did take care to remove as little information as possible in this split/overhaul...--Shiningpikablu252 04:43, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Gallery:Game screenshots

So I've been moving right along, as you suggested, but for some reason I can't open a certain page of the gallery. I don't know how to link to a particular page of it with an interwiki link, so here's the url: [1] I don't know how to skip over this page or anything either, so it's effectively a roadblock to my progress. Got any tips on how to overcome this obstacle? --AndyPKMN 13:05, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

I realized that I should be discussing this on your archive talk, but whatever. I think I found the root of the problem: File:PCCenter.gif
Try clicking it. Its page won't load, and neither will any category page containing it[2]. I don't have any idea why. Can we do something about this? --AndyPKMN 17:38, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Talking to me here is fine. I'm having someone look into it. Just skip the image, i guess, and keep going. MaverickNate 17:43, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Ah, there's the rub. I'm not sure what the next image in that category, alphabetically, would be. Care to wager a guess? EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out. --AndyPKMN 18:01, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Conversations stay together. So your only reason for creating it is because we have other projects? You've got to be kidding. That is not a good reason, and this project is simply not needed. You also have to ask permission from the EB for a new project, and I'm telling you this now, we say no. MaverickNate 15:52, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

You sent me an email. I read it soon, and sent a reply. Follow up if you need to, or I can. —darklordtrom 04:41, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


I don't think you understand the meaning of the word "opinionated." Here. This might help you out. If you can give me one example of how my article on Goods cards was, and I quote, "opinionated," I'll be happy with simply fixing some factual errors within your rewrite as opposed to reverting back to my initial version. Otherwise, rewriting something for the sake of rewriting something is extremely frowned upon (at least it was when I was more active), especially when there was nothing factually, grammatically, or otherwise wrong Bulbapedia-wise with the article. And frankly, I don't think you have any basis on which to say my article was "opinionated." Additionally, your rewrite contains a couple over-explained sections and factual errors. For example, saying that Goods cards "typically" depict items from the games is erroneous, as only two real sets have been released in Japan, and by my count, around 14 out of the 23 Goods cards that have been released are not based on any item from the game. I definitely wouldn't call less than half "typically." It's not an opinion to say that, name aside, Goods cards are literally exactly the same as Trainer cards. I'm fine with explaining what exactly that means, in as simple a way as possible so as not to confuse the issue, and with saying that Goods cards receive a hint of blue in the word "Goods" and on the side. Unless my eyes are deceiving me, most of the Goods card in front of me is not tinted blue. Lastly, this isn't a big issue, but I'd prefer we refered to the so-called "LEGEND" era as the HeartGold & SoulSilver-on era, as "LEGEND era" is really just terminology someone on PokeBeach or Serebii made up... no one involved in the competitive PTCG actually calls it that. We didn't call DP-on the "LV.X era." It's not a big deal, though... I'm fine with leaving that. So yeah. Think about what I said and think about why you really deleted my article and replaced it with your own draft. --ニョロトノ666 19:48, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

I chose the word opinionated as a place holder, because I thought it would be less embarrassing to have that instead of "This article is complete shit" in the edit summary/recent changes: which is essentially what your article was. But, now that you brought it out into the open; you obviously want the truth, which I was reluctant to give a 15 year old, just in case you would happen to freak out about it. But I guess you still pissed your pants about it anyway.
I used the word typically, because they are new trainer cards, and trainer cards depict either game items, or items of the like. I was preparing for the future so that we wouldn't have to edit it again to reflect a new percentage of cards. It was a deliberate preparation.
Are you color blind? Because the word "Trainer" on English Goods, and the word "Goods" is obviously blue. You should go see a doctor if you aren't seeing it, because your eyes are in actuality deceiving you.
LEGEND era is the Japanese name of the HGSS era. Since Goods are a Japanese classification of cards, we use Japanese names of eras and sets on pages depicting Japanese exclusive things. You would know that style if you were active. We do use LEGEND era because the Japanese card official site does, not because the beach or serebii do. Have you ever been to pokemon-card.com? I will give you one point for knowing we do not call anything the "LV.X era," but "HeartGold & SoulSilver-on era" is still wrong according to pokemon.com. There is no reason why I--and in extension, we at Bulbapedia--wouldn't be using official names. Why you would support unofficial naming conventions is beyond me.
And for the fact about my "rewrite"? let's look at time stamps. You happen to still be an administrator for now, so I know you can look at deleted revisions. My article and information is about a month before yours, making mine the original and the one you made the rewrite. "[R]ewriting something for the sake of rewriting something is extremely frowned upon" is something I agree with. So why would you do it, when the page you made was so horrifically horrible?

If you want bigger scans, just go to my Portfolio. Here is one of my Portfolio pages(all Portfolio links can be found in the given page) : http://lightofthestars.com/tcg/portfolio/portfolio-promo.htm I have uploaded a Hi-Res image of Aura's Lucario from PokePark, and maybe, just maybe, I might get my hands on both PokéPark Sheets.

Could you possibly tell me exactly where in the rules it says that you can't promote your own website? Because I've looked. I've read and reread the manual of style, as well as any other page I could find, and nothing. I somehow doubt you'd lie about the rules, so I assume I missed something. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 22:58, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

It's one of the reasons in the scroll you can choose when you block someone. If it's a blockable offense, it's obviously against the rules. MaverickNate 23:06, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh. Well, of course I wouldn't have seen that... Well then, sorry. Won't happen again. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 00:38, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Out of curiosity

What issue do you have with the edits to the Pokemon Prime page? -Agent_0042

What is 'promoting' a website?

I have read a few paragraphs above, and I've been wondering what's 'promotiong' a website, which, apparently, is against the rules.(or at least I think it is). Can this be answered?


... Listen. It's obvious that Glameow is more Female then Male. So the Idea is whether it is Female or not, it must be Female, as how I saw closely, Glameow was left, and when using attract, it was obvious Pachirisu was in front of Glameow, and was affected. Don't get the idea? Look at this Text-made diagram.

Gl Um

Pa Pi

1; Pa represents Pachirisu. Pi represents Piplup.

Gl represents Glameow.

Um represents Umbreon.

Both Pa and Gl are on the Left.

Both Pi and Um are on the right.

Gl Um

♥ ♥

♥ ♥

♥ ♥

♥ ♥

Pa Pi

2; Gl is hitting PA. Um is hitting Pi.

Since Um is hitting Pi, who's a male, it would be confirmed that Umbreon is a female. As for Pa and Gl.

If Glameow is Female, Pachirisu is male.

If Glameow is Male, Pachirisu is female.

Gl Um

♥ ♥

♥  ♥
♥  ♥

♥ ♥

Pa Pi

3; Even though it looked like Pachirisu was hit by Glameow, Glameow might have hit Piplup, really confirming it to be Female, while Umbreon is unconfirmed.

So, maybe since a lot of Glameows are female, Pachirisu is a male.

Get it? BlockyCuzco 02:57, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Speculation. Simple. ht14 02:58, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
There is really no way of telling whose Attract hit who. Your diagram proves nothing. As Ht14 said, speculation.
I noticed your that you argued the fact that Glameow are more likely to be female in the games. But did you take in the fact that Umbreon are more likely to be male? If going by game schematics alone, Glameow is female while Umbreon is male. Now we know that Piplup is male, meaning that Pachirisu would most likely be female. But you said it was male.
Either way, Games =/= Anime. Most of the Delcatty, which is a female dominated species in the games, that have been shown in the anime have been confirmed male. Case in point, "Johnny" and Lila's Delcatty.
Bottom line: All we know is Piplup is male and either Glameow and/or Umbreon are female. Pachirisu can't be determined by that. --ケンジガール 04:05, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

You are right. Umbreon are more male.

Attract works only if the attracter is male and the target is female, as well as female to male.

So, it's possible Glameow hit Piplup who is a male. Then, Glameow is female.

This can mean Pachirisu IS female, because...

Glameow are more female.

Umbreon are more male.

So, this means Pachirisu can be a female. BlockyCuzco 16:15, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Okay, let's keep the discussion up.

Another method of a Pokemon being more male in the games and there is a female in the anime (or vice versa) is Ash's Bayleef.

When I first played my Pokemon Soul Silver game I got for easter, when I picked a Chikorita, it was male.

But, Ash's Ketchum's Chikorita was female. This shouldn't be necessary as his other confirmed gender starter Pokemon (Charizard, Totodile, Sceptile, and Infernape) were male, was well as his Pikachu being male.

In the starter Pokemon case of this, though, my Piplup I chose for my Pokemon Pearl, which is now an Empoleon, and named Kevin was male.

Dawn's Piplup was also male. This is obvious most of the Piplup is male when it is more male in the games.

So, it's possible for genders to match game information. BlockyCuzco 05:07, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Replacing Game Move Images

When replacing images for in-game moves such as [4], can I use DP images or would sticking to GBA images be better?

Images from the most current game are preferred. MaverickNate 00:53, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Are we allowed to replace moves that still have GBA images with DS ones? -Joeshie
Yes. Absolutely. Make sure they are good screencaps. MaverickNate 01:03, 25 April 2010 (UTC)


" " are you deleting the page????? totoRulz 14:29, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

It's not notable for mainspace content. MaverickNate 14:30, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
so can how come other's like TTE and magnedeth have like their ownn pages like what pokemon I like, or anime teams? hm? totoRulz 23:51, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
they did not put those page sin the mainspace. MaverickNate 00:24, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Where did they put them? where can I put mine? and how? totoRulz 21:00, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
They put their pages in their own userspace. You can find everything you need to know it the Userspace policy. If you wish to make a personal page, please do so at User:Totojo158/Name. You weren't doing that. You were making it in the mainspace. MaverickNate 21:12, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
oooooh! ok! fail! (let the records show the user: totojo158 has failed. this makes 1,928) thank you. totoRulz 22:04, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

You can stop being annoyed now.

I have finished what I was doing. I just wanted to thank you for writing me the nasty message while I was 1/2-way done. I'll leave the rest of the mess that I hadn't gotten to yet, and the ones that I couldn't edit because they are protected, up to you since you sound like you can do it so much better. For the record though, instead of changing "many romanizations," I only changed Zigzagoon, Kyogre and Suicune because they were wrong. On the other hand, I FIXED Skitty, Growlithe, Blaziken, Aron, Flygon and Zorua because the articles were terribly inconsistent in usage. Instead of "jumping the gun" and yelling at someone in mid-work next time, I would suggest either helping, or seeing if their finished or not before butting in; getting yelled at while you're helping tends to annoy people.

shellos&gastrdon trivia

so i added a trivia item onto shellos gastrodon and burmy. I don't disagree with your decision to delete it, but I was just wondering what was wrong about it, so i can have a better idea of what would be something for trivia. --SanjayasMyPapaya 21:24, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes, you can hotlink them from an image sharing site such as imageshack simply by putting the URL of the image on the userpage. —darklordtrom 11:23, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

  • If there is "Boomerang from Cartoon Network is their website: [[5]] and its logo is very words I think should be called as it should be.
  • According to what he says he Boomerang from CN is its official name, commercial and look at this video evidence recorded on Tuesday May 4, 2010 while doing Pokemon I hope they change the name to official name.

In Spanish: Segun lo que dice que Boomerang from CN es su nombre oficial y comercial como prueba mira este video grabado el martes 4 de mayo 2010 cuando estaba dando Pokemon espero que lo cambien el nombre a nombre oficial--Pokemon de Perú 04:20, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

First, why are you telling me this? You act like I don't already know the situation. I think that it should stay as it is. Second, Según has an accent over the u. I suggest that you use correct Spanish grammar if you keep on using it. MaverickNate 04:23, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Setlistentry1 template

Been wracking my brains over what to do with this. The template at the moment limits itself to the first two eras of the TCG, and will require several other similar templates for EX, DP, and Japanese-exclusive lists. Putting these templates into the rest of the card lists will also take a long time. I was thinking it would be a lot easier to put the code for the rounded boxes on top of the existing code. This means that the coloured boxes for Trainers/Supporters/Standiums/Goods (which is a nice added touch) will be absent (unless a small template could be made for these?), but will save a lot of time and will have a similar result. Personally, the tables the majority of the lists use I think have a lot more potential freedom, incase there are unusual or unforseen additions. ~~nuva-kal 10:07, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

I have my own ideas that I passed onto TTE; I'm mostly just waiting for him to actually do them. I would really like to see them in an actual template, though. MaverickNate 10:51, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Fighting dojo image

I saw you deleted the image from the fighting dojo page. I wass just thinking that, since there is no better one might as well leave that one there. Oh and if you could tell me how to take a better pic of the DS i'd love to put that one up. Eugeniu14 09:01, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Houston, we have a problem

Our current overworld sprite standard creates a bit of a situation when you consider that the sprites of shiny Normal Forme Deoxys and normal Speed Forme Deoxys should both be a:File:386ODS.png. Unfortunately, it seems like the best way to fix this might be to move the Forme letter before the O (which is how we have it with the MS's).--MisterE13 23:25, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

TCG Redirects...

Sorry, I happened to notice that you deleted some redirects for the TCG linking mostly to Base Set cards, such as the former Charizard BS and others, and I aquired permission from Politoed666 on my talk page here: User talk:Smartkidhen#The TCG redirects... befroe I made them. I just wanted you to know so that we are both on the same page. Thanks,--Smartkidhen 21:53, 29 May 2010 (UTC)


Ok, I see my "edit" wasn't good enough, but then, how are we gonna fix the problem with the template, then? I don't see any solution to this. wat 19:52, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind me replying, Nate, I know your keyboard isn't working atm :(
For one think, Masatoshi, you should never just insert a bunch of line breaks to fix a problem, especially a technical problem. What browser and resolution are you running? This might be a factor, because the two templates should only use 65+33=98% of the page width. —darklordtrom 20:57, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Might be a problem of mine, then. I use Google Chrome, and it hurts me to see templates that are messed up :(. I know I shouldn't have added those lines, it's just that it bugged me out to watch the template merged with the infobox, but never thought it would be a browser problem, by the way, my resolution is 1024 x 768, sorry for having rushed to that, I had to do a mistake someday, good thing it was today and for a minor problem. edit: By the way, my first comment looks like I'm being cocky, just to clarify, I was not. wat 21:02, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, Chrome. Got a screenshot handy? I want to know how much it overlaps. —darklordtrom 21:17, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Sure, here (spoiler template overlapped, as well) and here's the one in question. wat 21:39, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that. It looks like Chrome doesn't autowrap templates that are centered on a page. This is something for us to look into. For the time being, you'll have to put up with messy pages. Sorry. —darklordtrom 21:42, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
It's okay, I can use Firefox (it was my default browser until got slow and Chrome appeared) in the meanwhile :P. wat 21:52, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Just an update, I've worked in a fix for the "spoiler" tag, so it should work properly now; the issue is with both Chrome and Safari, for future reference (all webkit-based browsers).
None of the other templates have been touched, partly because I don't have the time at the moment, and partly because I don't know which ones exactly need fixing; if any more problems come up, leave a message on my talkpage about it, and I'll see what I can do to fix the issues. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 04:24, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Clash attacks

Just gotta say, I have no idea what "side" is supposed to refer to. I just translated directly, and hopefully you know what the hell it's supposed to mean. D:

Don't freakin' unlock it if you have the ability to. If any TCG news appears, we'll get to it tomorrow. Same experiment we tried with locking BP: if Bulbagarden still crashes, we've not found the problem. TTEchidna 22:38, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Why did you deleted the Mitsuhiro Arita artwork?

I mean, we have a Midori Harada Artwork and a Kagemaru Himeno Artwork section, Both of these women also work in different media, so does Mitsuhiro Arita. Why was this deleted? TokoyamiTheDark 19:05, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

I replied on my Archives talk. I do get the message bar there as well, you know. MaverickNate 19:06, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Finally, it wasn't on BlubaPedia that I saw a Kamen Rider image on Midori's section, bur rather at a MIRRORED page. What I call a mirrored page is website that has been copied, slightly edited and have an IP adress instead of a regular URL. (Serebii.net once fell for this)TokoyamiTheDark 19:27, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Best Wishes!

Why did you delete Best Wishes!, the page about the upcoming season of the anime? --Shiny Noctowl 22:28, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

We barely know anything about it: all we have is a leaked image and such. And your article completely sucked. You didn't even categorize it! Nothing with such poor quality standards should ever stay. It will be done better by someone with more experience. MaverickNate 22:34, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
You could've just added the categories. Besides that, what was wrong with it? --Shiny Noctowl 22:42, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
Categories wasn't the only problem. Remember when I said we barely have any information about it? Also, the artwork might also be a fake, because the names for Tsutarja and Mijumaru are not the same as what was already revealed. We don't know enough confirmed information about it to make a decent page. MaverickNate 22:44, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Spiky-eared Pichu

War's over about title dispute. I confirmed it from the HGSS Pokédex. If you want a better proof from higher up, you might want to ask DETH. ht14 22:39, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

There was a title dispute? MaverickNate 22:40, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
Spiky-Eared Pichu vs. Spiky-eared Pichu. The latter's correct. ht14 22:46, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

List Revert

Care to explain why you reverted and protected the List template? Gambler 22:43, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

There was dispute whether or not to keep it because it was created incompletely. MaverickNate 22:46, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
It IS complete, it's the system fault that I can't upload it all at once. Please let people finish their work before you demerit their efforts. Besides, dispute where? Between you and you? Gambler 22:47, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
Ume and me and cp and psy and deth and jello and sol and werdnae. Demeriting your efforts would have invloved deleting the article. Me removing it from the template meant NOTHING. It's fine now. I'll add it back in MaverickNate 22:53, 1 July 2010 (UTC)


Why would you consider the Undaunted the English version of Reviving Legends when the Prime, the Legends and the Decks are the same as Unleashed. Cheers. - plau 11:30, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

The majority of the cards in Unleashed are not from Reviving Legends AND the majority of Reviving Legends will be in Undaunted. It seemed more appropriate, and it was what we were going to do in the first place before someone else did it otherwise. MaverickNate 12:16, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Regarding TCG Revamps

If the card came out in Japan first with no English counterpart (as seen with Bonsly), then what do we write for its debut? Also, I noticed we're getting rid of levels... why is that? ht14 02:59, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

It debuts in the Japanese set, so the Japanese set gets named UNLESS that particular card gets translated into English, then, the English set for that particular card is named. And for the levels, they are only there because it was the way the pages were named backed in the era of Happy Mask Man before Pie reformed the naming conventions for the TCG. We deemed it a meaningless piece of information that didn't really belong here anymore. MaverickNate 04:22, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Can you check something

User HIHIDURAMA11(sp) is being a little suspicious.--Midnight Blue 23:03, 6 July 2010 (UTC)


On resizing.. may I get permission to resize older images where I have to re-draw certain things? Many older images have those black bars on each side, and I've been redrawing inside them. I figure asking now would prevent further confusion in the future.--Cubic Question 21:35, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

May I append the offical FAQs or rules to each card's page?

I think it would be useful to others. For example:

Solrock L3

Card text



  • Moving damage counters from 1 Pokemon to another is not blocked by Heal Block.
  • While Heal Block is in effect, you may use Potion though it does nothing.

Luxray AR

Card text



  • You must declare whether you would like to discard the Pokémon Tool or not when you use Gadget Bolt. If you would like, the Pokémon Tool is discarded after damage is done. So Gadget Bolt always gets +20 damage from Expert Belt.
  • If Luxray uses Gadget Bolt to Knock Out Gengar SF and discards Expert Belt, Gengar may use Fainting Spell after Expert Belt is discarded. The Defending Player takes only 1 Prize card if heads.

Substy 08:46, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

I would much rather they be on one separate rules page, instead of all scattered on all the card pages. Let me think on this. It sounds like it would be a major implementation, but I am really leaning to pages with them listed, rather than on the card pages. Would you mind making one in your userspace so that I can look at style and such? MaverickNate 12:33, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
My opinion is creating several common pages, such as "Put the Knocked Out Pokemon in the Lost Zone", "Disable Poke-BODY" and "Attack Process". But if a card has a unique effect, it may be better to leave the rules on it's own page. Substy 21:33, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
But, in the mean time, could you possibly help make more clash pages? MaverickNate 12:34, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
With pleasure. Are Pokedex and trivia needed? Substy 21:33, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Maybe all of them could be different sections of one rules page? But yes, Pokédex and trivia are needed, as well as the Japanese names. We just haven't been putting dex entry because it is much easier to copy paste right from the official site, which updated yesterday. It would be a great help for me if you could do them. MaverickNate 23:03, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
I think the page would be too long. It needs lots of sections. Substy 09:15, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Maybe split them into separate pages by set? MaverickNate 12:13, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. I'll try it out in my page. What about Trainers and Energies? Substy 15:10, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I guess we could put them on the pages for every set in which they appear. MaverickNate 15:38, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
OK. By the way, can I have a page that has a new section button on the top likes discussion? Substy 16:51, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
If you make it on a user talk page, then yes MaverickNate 18:18, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks anyway. Substy 22:57, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Actually, if you add __NEWSECTIONLINK__ anywhere on the page, then the plus sign will go up at the top of the page. —darklordtrom 05:16, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Substy 22:55, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

New Pikachu World Set
