Lycanroc

How will you be able to display Tough Claws on the Lycanroc page without it looking weird? MaahirMomtaz12 (talk) 18:37, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

The staff will have to alter the infobox template to accomodate it. I don't know of a way the template can correctly display the necessary number of cells in its current state. According to Chosen, the staff are already aware this is necessary. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:59, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

New species introduced in the middle of a generation

Regarding Special:Diff/2688964, I wasn't talking about new forms (?), I was referring to Pokémon like Diancie and Genesect being "hidden" and officially revealed and released partway through their respective generations, or even something like Bonsly showing up in XD. Granted I guess the new UBs are different in this case because they didn't exist in Sun/Moon's game code at all? Dunno if that would be worth noting. Anyways I'm mostly concerned with what "introduced" means here, I'm not sure if the statement as it's currently worded excludes the examples I provided above.--Cold (talk) 04:43, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Bonsly can be easily excluded by specifying "core series", but yes, I see now the bone you're picking with the phrasing on the others. It's still an incredibly unprecedented occurrence, though, so I definitely think the trivium should not be removed in the interim while we figure out a phrasing. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 04:48, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
How does my rewrite sound to you? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 04:52, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that's much better.--Cold (talk) 05:06, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Dumb as usual, lol. (Feel free to delete this, takes up space) TheUltimateGamer (talk) 21:19, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Staff authority

Please don't pull rank on my behalf. If you want to make an edit, justify it on its merits, not the authority of someone who made a similar edit. Don't interpret one staff member simply making an edit as overruling another staff member. --SnorlaxMonster 16:38, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

I simply believe it's important for pages with equivalent topics to have equivalent text. I had to pick one or the other to change so they would match, and my edit summary was my justification for which one I picked. I wasn't trying to "pull rank", I was trying to explain why I thought that was more valid than changing Hoopa the inverse way. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:41, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
I would prefer if you would argue why you prefer the change I made, rather than say that because I was the one who made it that it is the correct way to do it. --SnorlaxMonster 16:53, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Understood, but in that particular case I had no preference except consistency, so the only reason I had to pick one over the other was who edited what and when. If a similar situation comes up in the future I will try to find a more diplomatic way to phrase it. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:59, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Some things

I honestly don't know how to change my computer's resolution, but I deeply apologize for my edits at Dragonspiral Tower. I didn't think about the possibility that others' computers would be different and people would therefore be presented with different formats of the same page. I honestly feel so embarrassed.

Also, something needs to be done about the font size of the Pokémon lists. It was pretty hard to read the lengthy list of Pokémon that appeared in I Choose You!, which was why I overlooked with Xerneas entry that was already there. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:23, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Ultra Space

In the trailer, when Lunala reaches the Ultra Wormhole passage in the mini-game, the player arrives in the Ultra Space of Nihilego, and, in the Official Site these new areas are in the article home of the Ultra Beasts, the home of Ultra Beasts is Ultra Space, so, that areas are the Ultra Space. - unsigned comment from Pika fanatic (talkcontribs)

Can you link to exactly where on the official site it explicitly says this? You are making a lot of assumptions and I cannot find anything on the official site to support them. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 03:05, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Well those areas are in the same slideshow when the site is talking that we are going to explore the Ultra Wormhole. - unsigned comment from Pika fanatic (talkcontribs)
Do you mean the first slideshow on this page? Because if so, I see nothing to support your assumptions. All they are are landscapes; there's no explicit statement that they are associated with any particular Ultra Beast over any other. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 08:15, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Wants to know? Forget it, because when Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon launch, I'll probably be right, so fine, because like they say in my country, "Eu não tô nem aí" - unsigned comment from Pika fanatic (talkcontribs)
I agree that this is the probable explanation that will eventually be true, but Bulbapedia requires explicit statement of fact. We don't say things based solely on "probably". It doesn't hurt anything for us to wait until we know for sure. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 15:33, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Can we just include the Geography article for how Ultra Space is in Sun and Moon? - unsigned comment from Pika fanatic (talkcontribs)
Yes, since the geography of how it appears in Sun and Moon is not speculation. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:03, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Type: Null

How can a legendary one evolve from a non-legendary? Because Cosmog and Cosmoem are legendary. I'd understand if it was some event item or something, but it's not. What Type: Null need to be legendary too?

Pika fanatic (talk)Pika fanatic 20:02, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

I think Talk:Type: Null (Pokémon) is a better place for this question (and indeed, it's already being discussed), but basically, the only criterion we have to determine what is or isn't Legendary is whether Game Freak says it is. Patterns are useless because they have been broken repeatedly in the past (it used to be that Legendaries couldn't be part of an evolution line at all; it used to be that they couldn't breed; it used to be that they had to be genderless). It's an assumption to say that a Legendary's pre-evolution is automatically also Legendary. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 20:53, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
I don't have anything to say anymore, just wait if Shiny Silvally event card say something about Type: Null status, an future TN event or Generation VIII. So never mind. Pika fanatic (talk)Pika fanatic 20:02, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
As I said above, Bulbapedia's policy is to wait for explicit confirmation. It's better for us to have potentially incomplete information than risk having wrong information. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:25, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Lusamine's Pokémon

Hi, regarding Special:Diff/2703463, I don't see why this can't be assumed. It seems pretty obvious that Clefable and Herdier evolved from Cleffa and Lillipup respectively, even if it wasn't explicitly mentioned. Assuming they are entirely different Pokémon seems more of an assumption than assuming they evolved. We also assume May's Venusaur evolved from Bulbasaur, instead of assuming that May caught a completely new Venusaur. Satsjoe (talk) 18:46, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

I don't see it as assuming they're entirely different Pokémon; I see it as showing proper agnosticism on the matter. Readers can assume for themselves (or not) whether the photo Pokémon are the same as the present-day ones.
As for May's Venusaur, I haven't watched those seasons so I don't know anything about it. But if what you say is true, perhaps that's something to be revisited. The prevailing winds on this wiki have moved from assumption to cautiousness over the years (see also, for example, the new-ish policy on assuming moves), and I'm fully in favor of double-checking old assumptions to see whether we actually know what we thought we did. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:38, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
Although I like grouping the Pokémon better than how it was displayed initially, I still stand by my opinion of them having evolved. Maybe it's an idea to bring this up to a staff member and ask for their opinion. Satsjoe (talk) 18:14, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

Edits

Why do you follow me around and undo all my edits? You even undo the ones that have nothing wrong with them. Is there a legitimate reason for this? Lucario5623 (talk) 01:13, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

I merely patrol the Recent Changes to ensure things are properly in order. No offense, but I have no idea who you are and had no idea that any of your edits were among those I'd undone previously. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 01:29, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
Most of my edits that you have undone had nothing wrong with them. There were a couple of my edits that were redundant, but other than that there wasn't anything inherently wrong with my edits. Lucario5623 (talk) 01:45, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
I'd pay more attention to your talk page, as Pumpkinking merely attempts his best to help ensure that the guidelines of the site are followed on pages and, based on the issue being discussed on your page, the discussion on this page seems moot (with no offense intended). I have not reviewed the rest of your edit history, but I feel safe in assuring you that Pumpkinking most likely does NOT have any kind of bone to pick with you. CycloneGU (talk) 01:50, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
Lucario, likely there was something wrong with your edits that you overlooked. Most people don't realize their mistakes as they make them here. If your edits are repeatedly being undone, you are probably doing something wrong.
Remember to always assume good faith. --Celadonkey 01:52, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
