Use the preview button. Editing the same article multiple times in a row stresses the server. Thanks :D--♫Green♫ギャラドス♫Talk♫ 14:20, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

omg dude

You made the Glitch Nidorino article soooo much better... thank you :) ZestyCactus 23:07, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks :) --SnorlaxMonster 04:25, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

8, 94, Pkmn n

im leaving them for now. also, were going to keep a list of Pokemon attainable via cheat, they just wont get articles. -- MAGNEDETH 03:05, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Oh, OK. I thought you missed them. I'll take the tags off. --SnorlaxMonster 03:06, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
<Sonic>You're too slow!</sonic> -- MAGNEDETH 03:13, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Why are you deleting them?

????? y r u deleting thoughs glitch Pokémon. --shinyditto 9:00 1 November 2009 (PST)

Are you talking to me or MAGNEDETH? Because it is him who is deleting them. They are being deleted because they are not available without cheating devices, and are considered not notable. --SnorlaxMonster 05:08, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
oh well that stinks cuz i just got all the ones glitch Pokémon( that dont freeze)that were on there and i was talkin to snorlax. --shinyditto 9:18, Nov 1st (UTC)
OK. Well it wasn't my decision to delete them, but I do agree with it. The general consensus was that articles on cheat-exclusive Pokémon are non-notable. Most of them were stubs, requiring cleanup, incomplete or a combination of. There are other websites out there devoted to Pokémon Glitches (such as Glitch City) if you want the information, and one of our users plans to combine all of the cheat-exclusive articles into one (unfortunately I can't give you a link now, but if you look around you might find it), but it is still a work in progress. Also, please start a new topic next time. --SnorlaxMonster 06:09, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
just one more question dose missingno. master know about this? --shinyditto 10:01, 2 Nov 2009 (UTC)
Yes. See Talk:List of glitch types. He said "I agree with the Gameshark-only Generation I Glitch Pokémon not being notable. That was actually my stance from the start, really." Also, you're better off asking him. And please, don't incessantly edit my talk page, I get an email every time you do. --SnorlaxMonster 06:13, 3 November 2009 (UTC)


Sorry, I don't mean to challange your authority on this, I'm not really into Glitches. --Smartkidhen (So I saw this sign that said Red VelvetTeam Galactic has plans) 01:31, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

That's OK, you changed it back anyway, so I don't care. You just should have brought it up on the talk page first, but I really don't care. --SnorlaxMonster 01:36, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Userspace template

Unless I'm misinterpreting your edit summary, you are mistaken. You can transclude any userspace page like a template by typing {{User:Pagename/Subpagename|param|param|param...}}, just as you would for a template. Test out that glitch thing on the subpage's talkpage, okay? —darklordtrom 08:06, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Well either I broke the template, or it dosn't work like that. See the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 11:22, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
Fixed. —darklordtrom 11:31, 9 December 2009 (UTC)


Check out the instructions on the bottom. Next time you use this template, refrain from removing the content and just put the template at the top. It can be helpful to administrators to see what was on the page before it is deleted. —darklordtrom 10:06, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Mainspace talk archives

Just a heads up, archival of talk pages for mainspace articles should be handled by an administrator. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 10:15, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

OK, sorry about that. --SnorlaxMonster 10:16, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

About stuff

You shouldn't need all those extra color redirects. The template should be set up so that it uses the regular glitch color template and doesn't make a whole lot of stupid redlinks. I did one of these fixes last night, feel free to learn from the edit.

Secondly: Bulbapedia:Namespace#Category_namespace. Useful page. —darklordtrom 10:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I see what you did on Five question marks, but for some reason it still uses B color (seen in used templates) and other glitch colors (Glitch and 'l) m) ZM) despite what you did. So it does remove the need for Glitch color light etc., but the rest of the redirects still appear to be needed. As for number 2, thanks for that link. --SnorlaxMonster 10:40, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
All fixed. That template should no longer be a problem, unless anyone wants anything added to it... —darklordtrom 10:53, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, I think I can find all the color redirects like that if you want. One thing is that B links to List of glitch types#B when no link is selected, but 'l) m) ZM links to Glitch#Glitch types. Can you fix it so they all do the first one?--SnorlaxMonster 10:57, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, one major problem is that the evolution template doesn't have the same disptype variable built into it. If that were to be included, I could clear out lots more unused type color redirects. Another problem is learnset boxes, but I don't know how that would work. --SnorlaxMonster 11:14, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
I'll sort that later. If I leave it too long, then I've forgotten and you should remind me. It's not too hard. —darklordtrom 11:17, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Old discussions

Thanks for telling me, sorry if I am answering old discussions. I am just bored. ( and yes, i used the preview button ) -- User:Sporeo45

Breaking the fourth wall

Hi, when you removed the section on game freak employees in Celadon mansion from the Breaking the fourth wall article, you cited that "Gamefreak has other games". What exactly do you mean by this? In what way are these characters not an example of breaking the fourth wall? (I'm sure you have valid reasons I just would like to understand them myself.) Thank you for your time.--Beligaronia (talk) 19:16, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, it's hard to fit a lot into an edit summary. It's because despite the fact that game freak exists in the Pokémon games, doesn't meant that they are saying "We designed this universe" or anything directly meaning that they are in a game. It is only breaking the fourth wall if something acknowledges the fact that the world they are in is not reality. Gamefreak could produce games other than Pokémon in the Pokémon world.--SnorlaxMonster 07:14, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
In FRLG one of the NPCs in celadon mansion says "I drew you" indicating that they are indeed the game developers who created this game universe. Their quotes are:
  • "I'm the graphic artist! I drew you!"
  • "I wrote the story! Isn't Erika cute! I like Misty a lot, too! Oh, and Sabrina, I like her!"
  • "Me? I'm the Programmer!" - doesn't really mean much
  • "I'm the game designer!" -says more but the rest doesn't mean much
--Beligaronia (talk) 07:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Ok, got me on that one
  • What story exactly? And the guys probably a pervert *shot*
  • Not really Breaking the fourth wall
  • What game exactly?
1 to 3, not really much of an argument there.--ForceFire 07:45, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
OK, the first one is fine, so mention that. --SnorlaxMonster 07:46, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

>> Honey shop glitch

Ah, I see. Sorry if I caused any trouble. OwnageMuch 08:57, 5 May 2010 (UTC)


The redirects will always exist, so there's no huge need to relink redirects on talk pages. Just fix up the important ones. Thanks for your efforts. —darklordtrom 23:06, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

interwiki links

What's with the interwiki links? Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 13:36, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm just redirecting all the SSB characters, because people could be looking for those, but we aren't supposed to have pages on them, so I made a whole bunch of redirects. If this isn't OK, let me know and I'll stop. --SnorlaxMonster 13:38, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
I just noticed that those links you created are now Double Redirects. I don't think interwiki linking redirects should be used. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 02:38, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Maybe. I'll see what TTE thinks. --SnorlaxMonster 02:42, 25 July 2010 (UTC)


This concerns your recent edit on Mew_glitch.
Thankyou for editing that. I also did not know the words to put it into, but I knew that had to be changed.
OwnageMuch 09:28, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

About Poochyena and Larvitar

Yes they can. My slowbro knows water pulse and avalanche. and was the father of my larvitar. My sceptile was the father of my seviper and seviper learned dragon claw as an egg move because sceptile learned it from a tm. it was then passed on to poochyena when i tried to get one that knew poison fang. if you dont believe me then try it. Blahness15 18:04, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

I'll test it, but how would Seviper learn Dragon Claw? It has no claws. Also, other reliable Pokémon fansites disagree with you about Seviper, Poochyena and Larvitar. --SnorlaxMonster 08:04, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
Seviper does not learn Dragon Claw, even when bred from a Sceptile. Tested. I don't have a male Slowbro to check, so I'll go get one. What version are you playing BTW?--SnorlaxMonster 08:33, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
And just tested that too. Slowbro cannot pass Water Pulse and Avalanche on to Larvitar. Next time, please check your facts before inserting them into articles. --SnorlaxMonster 13:02, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm playing SoulSilver, what about you? And Seviper may be using its tail for the attack. You are very quickly getting dangerously close to being on my 'people who I don't like' list, Captain know-it-all. I'll get the pics ready.Blahness15 23:37, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

I used Diamond. None of those moves could be learned. As for Seviper, its tail is not a claw. I was hoping it was DPPt, because now I have to try again as HGSS do have different egg moves (but only a few). And while I still do want to see screenshots, they don't prove anything. --SnorlaxMonster 07:01, 10 August 2010 (UTC)


Please do not create redirects unless the page it redirects to exists. If it doesn't, that redirect will be counted as a Broken Redirect. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 12:03, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm making the pages now. Should I have waited? --SnorlaxMonster 12:06, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it makes sense to do it after the page is created, lest someone like I misunderstands. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 12:09, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
In some cases I can see it being fine to do. Generally a bad idea, lest they be forgotten, but meh. TTEchidna 03:37, 8 August 2010 (UTC)


Could I ask for some more template help? The MS code you gave me worked like a charm... but I'm now told that the use of #ifexist is causing phantom entries to appear in Wanted Pages (a known bug, from what I can gather). I'm guessing there's a way around this, but it's way beyond my questionable skills? Can you give me a hand? Bikini Miltank 15:27, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

So we can't use #ifexist? That's annoying, it's so useful. I don't actually see the phantom pages that are on wanted pages that are supposed to be caused by this glitch. I wonder if there is a MediaWiki patch to fix it, or if Bulbapedia's functions caused this. Now, to fix it, I guess switches will be necessary; I'll try to fix it. If you do need some help, I generally use mw:Help:Extension:ParserFunctions or mw:Help:Magic words for some code (that's how I found out about #ifexist). --SnorlaxMonster 13:39, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Moving userpages

As mentioned on Sol's talk page, please don't do it. If it's going to be moved into the mainspace, there is no point of moving it beforehand in the userspace. Please remember the userspace policy next time. Thanks. Jellotalk 10:54, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Edits

The reason I do that is because my browser is known to crash at random times, and I didn't want to lose all that information. But I'll try use preview a little more often just for you. Koolboyman 16:55, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Deleting pages

Handy tip - if you have lots of pages to be deleted, simply list them on an administrator's talk page. Even when the page is deleted, every edit is still logged, and given that adding the template categorises the page, it can sometimes be strenuous on the server for so many edits to be made in succession. It'll probably also be faster this way. —darklordtrom 11:00, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, while you're here, just about every Trainer class article will now need a talk redirect deletion. Now that I think about it, same goes for the the Routes. Is there some kind of MediaWiki patch which allows the moving of pages without creating talk redirects? Because I don't think that we ever want them. --SnorlaxMonster 11:57, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Not that I know of. You can suppress the redirect of the whole thing, or none at all. I'm going to head off now so I won't go through and search for pages to be deleted. If you can list them for me (or whoever finds them first) that'd be swell. —darklordtrom 12:02, 26 August 2010 (UTC)


Just because other article states something, it doesn't have to mean that it's true. Please refrain for using Bulbapedia as a source for itself. It's really annoying (not saying that you're wrong in this case, I'm not sure about this). --Maxim 12:46, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

There is a link to an official source on that page. Here. I was linking indirectly to keep the edit summary short. --SnorlaxMonster 12:48, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Ah, well then. Nevermind me. --Maxim 16:14, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Nitro Charge

Thank you for helping with my Nitro Charge page, I really don't know how to write Japanese text. Thanks--KayKay|Chat to me! 09:31, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

I copy/pasted it from Umeko's page. Although I do know how to type Japanese text and can explain how if you want. --SnorlaxMonster 09:34, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh that would be great thanks, though could you do it on my talk page?--KayKay|Chat to me! 09:36, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
No seriously, could you tell me on my talk page? To get to it all you have to do is press the Chat to me! button and take it from the bottom, though I think You'd already know.--KayKay|Chat to me! 10:35, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh ok though I don't have windows sooo yeah I think i would just get other people to type in Japanese--KayKay|Chat to me! 06:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Also, you really shouldn't break up discussions between two pages. They should be kept on one person's talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:08, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh right, I see because then it would be less confusing. I get it. Sorry.--KayKay|Chat to me! 08:19, 31 August 2010 (UTC)


How often would they be used separately? I'm kinda iffy on them. —darklordtrom 12:26, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

I was thinking of only one situation where they would be (to do with glitch characters in names). But the main problem is that {{Pkmn}} already exists, and is widely used. There is most likely a better way to do it, but this does work. --SnorlaxMonster 12:28, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
If there's only one scenario then it's not really worth creating a template for. Template names are case-sensitive, so Template:PKMN could actually be something from Template:Pkmn. —darklordtrom 12:31, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
We could, and I had thought about it, but that might be a bit confusing, although I'm not opposed to it. And this one situation does spread across about 3 pages mentioning the same thing (Old man glitch, Glitch Trainer, Professor Oak). However, these could simply be left the way they are (and I would support it). --SnorlaxMonster 12:35, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Well yeah hardcoding's an option (as that's what we've been doing previously). Could also add switch statements or put the characters onto the palette ↓down there↓ for ease of use... —darklordtrom 13:07, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps if the template is left without parameters it displays PKMN, but if it has parameters specified, it works as normal? --SnorlaxMonster 06:46, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
If no parameters are inputted then it displays PKMN; if {{{1}}}=PK then it displays PK; if {{{2}}}=MN then it displays MN? —darklordtrom 07:02, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
No, I'm saying integrate it into {{pkmn}} so that if there are no parameters it displays PKMN, but if any parameters are specified it displays as Template:pkmn normally would. --SnorlaxMonster 07:04, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
While that probably wouldn't break stuff... I don't know if having one template do two things is entirely advisable. —darklordtrom 07:10, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, if it is noted on the page... but I do see the problem with a double use template. However, one should only be used as {{PKMN}} while the other {{pkmn}}. I would almost suggest moving the other one if it was so widely used. How about we put it at Template:PKMN3 (for my template, not the old one)? --SnorlaxMonster 07:15, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Oceanic Museum

After your change, the layout box is now almost XBOX HUGE and all that black in it looks horrible. I honestly don't see any reason why the page can't be done in the same style as the one about Mossdeep Space Center and many other location pages. Tempest370 09:28, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Saving images

It seems that you accidentally are limiting the palette colors when saving images. If you are using OptiPNG, use the "RGB with Alpha" option instead.--immewnitythemew 16:51, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm using Everything is set to the default, except that I changed to transperancy threshold from 0 to 255. I don't know how to set it to what you suggested. --SnorlaxMonster 01:48, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Soft Redirects?

Sorry to sound like a n00b, but.. what exactly is one? --SilverCrono 03:50, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

It kinda already says on the page. "Note: This soft redirect exists to avoid revealing a critical plot twist without warning." Scroll to the bottom of the page and you can click the redirect button to go to the page. Same goes for things like Masked Man. The page actually wasn't set out correctly before, the redirect button should be at the top of the page. --SnorlaxMonster 04:52, 12 September 2010 (UTC)


It's to do with how the data has been dumped: there are a few irregular capitalisations. I'm trying to catch them as I add them, but I do miss a few here and there. As for moves like Spit Up and Fissure having 1 base power... I think that's just how it is in the game data. These aren't the final versions of the movesets (we'll have to figure out if/how they work in Musicals) and so at the moment I'm just trying to get the raw data up. Bikini Miltank 09:37, 18 September 2010 (UTC)


TCG-only moves. When creating new Poké-pages, make sure it's as such: {{Trading Card Game}}-only moves. Thanks. ht14 00:44, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that was only happening because of the {{NewPokémon}} template, which I see you've fixed. --SnorlaxMonster 05:09, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Hey you

Yeah you, the one with the breaking of the Pokémon infobox. Fix it! MaverickNate 05:09, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Looks like Sol got it. I was thinking it was one of those things that the server takes a little while to fix on all the pages, but it was actually because I accidentally put an enter in. --SnorlaxMonster 05:38, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

DL link

Since you said to discuss on your talk page, where is it said that items should be linked without {{DL}}? Some items share names with trainer classes and other things, and would require it to be linked that way. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 21:17, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

I think the only item in that situation is Metronome, which could be linked to that way, or as {{OBP|Metronome|item}}. The main problem with section links is if that section gets split off into its own article, or it gets renamed.
Case A: When the Master Ball was given its own page, many links still lead to Master Ball. This is probably still the case, and it is very difficult to fix as there is no "WhatLinksHere" for section links. Links which lead to what was the redirect Master Ball didn't need to be fixed.
Case B: When the template {{Item}} was introduced, many sections were renamed. For example, the TinyMushroom and Big Mushroom had a joint section known as TinyMushroom and Big Mushroom. The new template meant that they needed to be linked to as TinyMushroom and Big Mushroom instead. Because it was easy to change the redirects, anything that lead to the redirects TinyMushroom and Big Mushroom was fixed almost instantly. However, section links to the old title still exist.
The main thing is, redirects to sections are fine. That is why if I want to link to the glitch move TM47, I would use {{m|TM47}} instead of {{DL|List of glitch moves|TM47}}. --SnorlaxMonster 02:30, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Alright then. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 12:02, 4 October 2010 (UTC)


Okay then. Pity that the other towns don't appear in the credits too. --Maxim 15:36, 4 October 2010 (UTC)


Or just simply move it to "FireRed / LeafGreen glitch Pokémon", although with it being legitimate one way and not the other pushes me towards moving it too.

Make sure to have a redirect though. OwnageMuch 09:51, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

B óË ÁN was just the first name discovered. If we can get an index number for the thing we could move it to Glitch (INDEX NUMBER). But the only legitmate encounter uses óË {e Ái so we should use that, at least for now. Besides, the page needs cleanup. --SnorlaxMonster 10:04, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Vandal edits

They are only hidden if they are offensive. MaverickNate 16:14, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Ah, OK. I thought it was all vandal edits, so that only constructive edits to the page were in the history. --SnorlaxMonster 16:15, 9 October 2010 (UTC)


The Slowed/Tired/etc is actually capitalised in the Browser plz don't change it D: D: D: sorry!! --ZestyCactus 03:16, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

OK, thanks. It looked like a typo. --SnorlaxMonster 03:17, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I kind of worried people would think it was a mistake... I thought about putting in hidden text saying that was how it's displayed in the Browser but I decided against it. ^^' sorry for the trouble haha --ZestyCactus 03:19, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Keldeo's talk page

As you have stated, I gave reasons WHY it could be based on a toy line. - 050294 10:02, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

So what's wrong with it?--Marhawkman 19:41, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

By that, I meant that there were still "you"s and "pokemon"s --SnorlaxMonster 06:55, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

What do u suggest?

Per your recent edit on the glitch Pokémon "P T," what do u suggest we do about the images for P T, PC4SH, PkMnaPkMnfPkMnk, and ? Should we have a blank image for the picture? - unsigned comment from Joeshie (talkcontribs)

Yes. Or at the very least, a summary screen showing their own moves. --SnorlaxMonster 02:48, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Ahh okay. And oops, PkMnaPkMnfPkMnk does not actually have that problem. And I forgot to sign my last comment xD --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 02:56, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


Someone already re-added it, but I just wanted to explain my justification for its ice type representing an absence of energy. It parallels the Wuji symbolism, in that it can represent the absence of Yin and Yang (Reshi and Zekki's basis), or the absence of energy (Reshi and Zekki's fire and electricity). I understand the fire-ice-lightning parallels, but in this case it seems to have additional symbolism, with Kyurem appearing to be a sort of mediating force or happy medium between Reshiram and Zekrom, akin to Rayquaza's negating effects on Groudon and Kyogre. --AndyPKMN 12:25, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

I can see how ice is the lack of fire (heat), but not how it is the lack of electricity. --SnorlaxMonster 12:32, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


Hey, you mentioned on my talk that Pokemon names are singular and plural (no s). OK, thanks, but where did I make that error? - unsigned comment from Jdthebud (talkcontribs)

Here. It's 6 days old, but I just noticed it and I'm behind on my watchlist. Also, it's better to reply on the same talk page so you don't break up discussions. --SnorlaxMonster 08:58, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. --Jdthebud 00:35, 28 October 2010 (UTC)


"Base stats" - How base stats of ????? are calculated? Do they are stats at lvl 5 (or 1) or what? (I checked a ????? FE version lvl1 stats on Crystal and they were 6 attack, 6 defense, 7 special attack, 8 special defense and 7 speed) Marked +-+-+ 13:44, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Base stats aren't stats at any particular level. They are the base numbers used in the calculations. For more info, see base stats (which the template should link to). --SnorlaxMonster 23:42, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Sinnoh Route 214

Can you check it over what you added? I'm not sure if you made the errors in both the description and in-game text. If the errors are meant to be, you could mention it under the trivia. ht14 00:39, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

I just checked it, and it seems to match perfectly. What was the error you were talking about? --SnorlaxMonster 00:43, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Under route description: The road joining Veilstone City and a lake is described as either "widly natural" or simply "a mess." Under the map description: The road joining Veilstone City and the like is described as either "wildly natural" or simply "a mess". It's "wildly natural", and it's describing a lake, no? ht14 00:48, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, mine is correct. The " is after the . and it's a lake not the lake. I checked both Diamond and Platinum and they both say this. --SnorlaxMonster 00:51, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Hold on, lemme italicize what I'm talking about. If it's right, then fine. As I said, if there are errors, then whatever is trivia-worthy, yeah. ht14 00:55, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh yeah, its wildly not widely too. And they don't seem to be errors worthy of trivia either—the whole thing seems to be error free (at least now) to me. --SnorlaxMonster 00:59, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Unique base stat total trivia

I put down the Moroboraeu unique BST trivia by using another page as a guide: Rhyperior. There's three points of trivia there regarding his stats. In fact, that trivia point I pasted almost-verbatim from there and I have seen other Pokemon pages with trivia about statistics (Shuckle for instance). Should those be removed as well, then? --Chicobo329 20:15, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Oh wait, you mean like trivia that says 'this is the only Pokemon with a base stat total of n'? Is it okay to give trivia points if the Pokemon has the highest base stat of its type (like highest or lowest HP)?--Chicobo329 20:22, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it's fine to have "this Pokémon has the highest Stat of all ???-type Pokémon", I even left that piece of trivia there. What it is not okay to do is add "This Pokémon is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of XXX". I didn't remove our edit at all. If you see any unique base stat total trivia around, please delete it. --SnorlaxMonster 01:15, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
who said that trivia wasnt ok? -- MAGNEDETH 17:45, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
It was in an edit summary somewhere, but even though I tried, I can't look through all of the pages of Pokémon with unique base stat totals to find it. The best I've been able to find is an edit summary from sol. But really, there are way too may Pokémon with unique base stat totals to be listing that in the trivia anyway. However, a category might be a good idea. --SnorlaxMonster 00:33, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Evolution and Dream World abilities

I'm asking this here because I haven't gotten a response on Talk:Pokémon Dream World. A recent edit summary of yours stated that Daruma Mode Hihidaruma "can't have evolved". But what happens when a Darumakka with the ability Inner Focus (also obtained from the Dream World) evolves? Does the ability revert to Hihidaruma's standard ability (Brute Force), or does the Darumakka evolve into a Hihidaruma with Daruma mode? --AndyPKMN 12:08, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Actually, that's a good question. I think that Dream World Daruma lose their Dream World ability, but now that I think about it, they might actually change like the other abilities. I need someone with BW to confirm this for me. --SnorlaxMonster 07:06, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
User:Surskitty just commented on my inquiry on the Dream World's talk page that yes, apparently Inner Focus Darumakka evolve into Daruma Mode Hihidaruma. --AndyPKMN 20:55, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Shiny Encounters

How is it that when ever I see a shiny self-destrutioning pokémon such as Graveler it always explodes when I throw a Poké Ball??? Pichumaster995 23:33, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

no reason, it just knows the move (goddamn developers) Ataro 23:41, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

why did they have to do that...Pichumaster995 15:19, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean it escapes the ball the uses Selfdestruct/Explosion? You're just unlucky. Try Master Balls if you really want the Shiny Pokémon. --SnorlaxMonster 05:58, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

It always does that, but i never use master balls on any pokemon except roaming pokemon.Pichumaster995 15:14, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Alternatively, carrying something with Damp may help. Bluesun 12:11, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey thanks!Pichumaster995 20:21, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon Mini

Snorlax's Lunch Time, Slowking's Judge, Chansey's Dribble, Pokémon Pinball Petit, Puzzle Collection Petit, and Pikachu's Rocket Start are the six playable in Channel. Bluesun 12:11, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Great. Can you fix up the table at Pokémon mini#Pokémon Channel so that it says which game Pikachu's Rocket Start was based on, and confirm that Puzzle Collection Petit was only based on Pokémon Puzzle Collection and not Pokémon Puzzle Collection Vol.2. --SnorlaxMonster 12:31, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Alright, I think that's done. I removed "Pokémon" from Puzzle Collection Petit since the game refers to it without "Pokémon" in the title too, possibly for brevity. If that was wrong, I apologise... Unfortunately, I can't confirm it's only based on Puzzle Collection as I don't have a Mini, but if it helps, the puzzles playable are:
Motion Puzzle
Level 1: Poliwhirl Minidex #15
Level 2: Octillery Minidex #68
Level 3: Hitmontop Minidex #74
Shadow Puzzle
Level 1: Staryu Minidex #24
Level 2: Haunter Minidex #19
Level 3: Delibird Minidex #69
Rescue Mission
Level 1: Pikachu Minidex #07
Level 2: Vileplume Minidex #10
Level 3: Wooper Minidex #54
Bluesun 13:42, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
The fact that I have neither a Pokémon mini nor Pokémon Channel doesn't help. The first two match up with what's on the page, the third one I can't find much info about. --SnorlaxMonster 13:52, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Help with FA updating

I've searched around Bulbapedia for a while looking for this information but I couldn't find it so I decided to ask a Junior Admin. In 2 days (November 9th) it will be a month since I nominated the Pikachu article as a FA candidate. The last time I checked (a few minutes ago) there were 20 votes in favor of the FA status and only 3 objecting. I need to know if I need to do anything as far as making it official that it is a FA like updating the list of FAs. Do I do this or does an admin do it? If I do need to do something then I think there should be a page describing the process just like there is a page describing the nominating process. Thank you for any info you can give me.--Alex726contributions 19:28, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi Alex and SnorlaxMonster. If an article attains more than 50% supportive votes, then the Editorial Board will discuss it over. Promoting an article to featured status is not just about the number of votes - but how strong the arguments for and against are. Typically electAbuzzzz runs this section of the site but since he's away at the moment he's left me in charge... Great, more stuff for me to run... So I'll remember to take a look over this in the next few days. —darklordtrom 20:17, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh ok. Thank you. Just remember that your work is greatly appreciated.--Alex726contributions 21:15, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Redirecting to articles about species

Hi! I don't know who has invented this idea, but it's just perfect. At last I don't have to go through disambiguation page if I just want to check stats or a movepool. If you know who has changed this, let me know because I want to thank him/her for saving my time.
