"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)

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? (we have Ho-Oh and Lugia in both GS and HGSS, Suicune, Rayquaza and Giratina Origin Forme)- unsigned comment from TokoyamiTheDark (talkcontribs)

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)
Sounds good to me :) I will also try to find a better one.
Does that mean, we also need an image of Charizard Box Art (from FireRed)? --♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 19:12, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

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. Everyone helping here will get full credit on my website, and on

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.

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 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 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?
