My not so final message

Meh. I decided that being a normal user should be good enough. I like having the option of continuing some of my projects, and helping out my friends. I just don't want the responsibilities of staff to strangle me again. Nice, cool, and relaxed. No one say a word



Let me be the first to say welcome back Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 21:15, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

A wild Maverick appeared!

Welcome back - though I'd put this here rather than forward the email you missed. Basically I was going to ask where you got all of the info regarding the new BW collection cards. From what I can gather all of the info is now on the Pokemon Card Game Network site, which requires you to be a member of the Daisuki club - and I cannot register. The concern I had is that I don't have a Japanese source as to get text and all that from, or did Umeko provide all of this for you? ~~nuva-kal 23:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

I was forcing myself to actually learn Japanese. I mostly compared the Japanese names of in game attacks with the cards. Anything that I could not either find and copy the text character for character, or copy/paste from one of the move/ability pages, I either had left the cards unfinished, or asked ume for them. There were only about five or six I did not do. MaverickNate 17:49, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
I've also hit a potential snag in the way some cards are named. I'm up to Castform on cards by Pokémon, which is where I've noticed it. The Pokémon with different forms have it detailed in smaller text, but this is actually part of the card name. The forms are referenced as the card's full name in several Poké-Powers and as to what they evolve from, as well as in official checklists, and the fact that you can play four of each of those with the form names. Not sure if you planned to rename these if/when you got up to them? - Though I would still like some input. For most instances this isn't a problem, but the Shellos and Gastrodon cards all have the form in their name, which will need a redirect with the way the cardlist header is set up. ~~nuva-kal 20:13, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, I had also come across this problem with Unown. The way I began to think of it, was that the different sections for these Pokémon were not so much names as they were the different forms. I organized all of the letters into each of the groups, even though the EX Unseen Forces cards were not labeled "Unown A" specifically. This way provided a lot more sense into the different sections, for instance how all the cards in the first "Unown" section were the ones from HS era featuring more than one at once. I feel like having the three forms of Castform from Legends Awakened into the specifically grouped sections would be best for it. As for Shellos and Gastrodon, we can discuss that more in depth when those two actually come up. MaverickNate 20:35, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
This raises another question though, is it best to have for example a section for Sunny Castform, and one for Castform Sunny Form? This is what I was originally alluding to - that I think the cards in question should have the full names in the card article titles as they are with Unown over the course of the DP expansions. Considering I'm going over these with a fine-tooth comb anyway, moving them wouldn't be much more hassle. ~~nuva-kal 20:50, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, if renaming them is an option, I don't see why not. Though having both "Castform Sunny Form" and "Sunny Castform" is a bit weird and redundant in my opinion. Do what you think is best. MaverickNate 21:01, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Ugh, I've kind of convinced myself out of it, as the names don't look that good in the infoboxes and it does look daft with the breakdowns in the table. I've edited the Castform one to a standard I like, and I've even put a colour switch in there which looks nice! ~~nuva-kal 21:41, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I tried to avoid color switches, just so that each type and color was featured at all times. The only other place I encountered this was Lugia where all I did was alternate Psychic color and Colorless color. I probably would have just alternated Water and Fire color as the secondary color for Castform. MaverickNate 18:47, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Welcome back!

Hi! I was so sad when I saw that you would leave forever,as TTEchidna and you were the ones who welcomed me here and supported my website. I do have a question, though, because I don't know how to do it. I finally created a page of Voltolos (White Collection 19) but the link to the secret Voltolos (White Collction 54) is still red. Could it be possible to create a redirect of this page : (Secret Voltolos) to the original page :, just like it was done with Tornelos, Reshiram and Zekrom? That would help a lot, since I don't know how to do it. TokoyamiTheDark 22:28, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Forget that, it is already done :) TokoyamiTheDark 22:29, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
