==Good evening==
Hello, SnorlaxMonster.
I was wondering what you think of [[User:Han Ji-Wan/Pokémon by release date (Generation III)|this]]. I know you've seen this before and I have asked for your permission to use your template from your Pre-Release Generation 5 article. I was wondering if there's anyway we could improve the page and then set it up as a real article. I am shocked we STILL do not have articles for Pre-Released Pokemon for each of the generations (at least from 3rd to 5th generations). [[User:Han Ji-Wan|Han Ji-Wan]] 03:43, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

May I ask you?

On the main series regions articles, why did you remove each region's location in correlation with the other regions in the intro of each article? I think that info should be there. ZMT123 04:50, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Because it's speculation. Aside from Kanto and Johto, which are connected, there's no official source for the locations of those regions in relation to one another. Werdnae (talk) 04:36, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it is confirmed that Kanto and Johto are south and southwest (Johto being southwest) of Sinnoh. In the radio in HGSS, it refers to Sinnoh as "the great land to the north". ZMT123 04:50, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see, in Sinnoh Sound. I was not aware of that. I'll that back into the articles then, thanks. It is generally better to provide the source in cases like this, so I'll put it in the articles. --SnorlaxMonster 07:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)


Why did you delete my outdated section template in the sandbox? Mothim will rule all!-Wildgoose (and Dustox will too!) 15:14, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

You weren't doing anything there. You just pasted raw template code (minus the category). The sandbox is meant for testing templates; if you aren't testing anything, there is no need to use it. --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

TM34 (glitch Pokémon)

Please delete this, it doesn't exist. Thanks - unsigned comment from Rsrdaman (talkcontribs)

Thanks, although your ALLCAPS edit summary drew my attention to it anyway. However, I'm going to expand the article of the actual glitch Pokémon at Hex EB in Yellow before I do delete it, since it seems to be using some of its info. --SnorlaxMonster 05:54, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. When I saw that page I knew it was wrong immediately, data was from mixed sources, including the picture, I even tested it out on my Yellow version and knew that there was no possible way for it be be right. Sorry for being inactive for so long. I was sick as hell. Also, Is there anything recent to the Glitch area of Bulbapedia requireing any help with? --×Rsrdaman× 02:51, 13 January 2012 (UTC)


Which Pokémon moves first when they have both the same Speed and the priority of attacks? (Eg. Kyogre vs. Giratina, they have the same base Speed, so it's not that unlikely). Is it random? Marked +-+-+ 14:32, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes. --SnorlaxMonster 14:35, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Austrian event

No problem, the distribution took place last year from September 22 until October 5.  – Ƨ h a d o w t w e a k e r 19:29, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Revision visibility

Can you please change revision visibility of this. -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 08:09, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Jimmy Zoppi

Please unprotect this. It's not fair to limit a page to admins forever. Also, I'm sorry about forgetting admin clearance when moving it, but what you did (protect it forever) is quite extreme. Now I know I do not have the power to boss you around, but please reconsider what you just did. サトシ 22:14, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Snorlax only protected it against moving. You are still welcome to edit the article, just not rename it. As Snorlax said, the protection will be lifted once a consensus on the title has been reached. —darklordtrom 04:19, 12 January 2012 (UTC)


When I was on the Rikako page, I noticed that she didn't have a dub name. Does Mrs. Mitchum count as a dub name as both her husband and daughter have Mitchum as the family name? PattyMan 23:50, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't know. I brought it up on the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 09:11, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Consensus for Carter Cathcart

As of now, the poll is closed, and Carter Cathcart has the most votes. Therefore, the consensus has been reached. Now you can unprotect the move tab. サトシ 02:26, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, we've extended it. サトシ 22:01, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I was away from Bulbapedia at the time. Looks like it turns out it didn't matter anyway though. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon D/P/Pl Maps

Where did the overworld maps, like the ones in the info boxes of the Sinnoh Route 209 and Sinnoh Route 214 pages, come from? I'm guessing it was partially ripped with a specialized utility uploaded to a site. It could have been done by someone here that took the time to do a nice quality rip that was very time consuming but stopped after mid-way through. I tried looking on The Video Game Atlas and came up with nothing. I would like to see a replacement of that kind of quality for pages such as Sinnoh Route 210 and Sinnoh Route 213 and even pages such as Floaroma Meadow and Valor Lakefront. No more scans or snapshots.

If there is no way to know, I could help out any way I can. Just supply me with the right tools and I'll see what I can do!

I am playing through Pokémon Pearl Version for the first time just to correct for any errors along the way, using pages like that as a sort-of-guide (I have done a few edits along the way). --Wildgoosespeeder 05:18, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

The maps are a compilation of images of the route using manipulations to make them so that they are top down and trainerless. There isn't, as far as I'm aware, any utility for it. Just manual assembly of lots of screenshots. Werdnae (talk) 05:42, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Heh, I thought through ROM hacking, you can easily get map data. Plus your explanation could have one complication to retain neatness. The game is angled, giving the world a 3D-ish look compared to previous Pokémon games. This means jaggedness could occur during reassembly. --Wildgoosespeeder 07:58, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
That's why you need to find a code to manipulate the display angle so that it's top down. Werdnae (talk) 08:10, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, they would get an oblique view of it. However, I also know a fair number of Sinnoh images are (or were) scans from game guides. However, these are not preferred to the usual method. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
OK, what is the code to disable the 3D? Is it Action Replay triggered or is it the "internal" cheat engine that DeSmuME uses? To save time, I would like the complete game save please, if possible! --Wildgoosespeeder 03:53, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I really have no idea. I've never done so myself. You're better off finding a map someone has uploaded, finding out who the uploader is and asking them. Also, can you please avoid talking about emulators here. --SnorlaxMonster 08:25, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Emulators are legal, ROMs are a controversial area. I understand that. US copyright law states somewhere you can have back-ups of media you own legal copies of as long as they stay personal, or something to that effect. Copyright law in other countries vary. If you don't want me talking about it further than that, OK then, no more out of me. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:28, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand that emulators by themselves are legal, but let me quote the first page of the Pokémon White manual:
Copying of any Nintendo game is illegal and is strictly prohibited by intellectual property laws. Back-up or archival copies are not authorised and are not necessary to protect your software.
Essentially, they are specifically forbidding you from making copies of the game, even for personal use, even if it was not illegal without it. So you were implying that you would be running a Pokémon game on an emulator, which would require you to have an illegal ROM. Regardless, it's better to be cautious. --SnorlaxMonster 02:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
They may hate it but legally they may have no power over certain cases no matter what they may say. They could just be saying that just to ward off most potential violators. It is really iffy of the real legality of it, meaning who has the authority to say what is legal and illegal. Like I said, it's a very controversial topic. Best advice I have is if you really want ROMs, just download the ones you already own legal copies of. Don't distribute because that is infringement. People tend to do the opposite of those two guidelines and that is definitely illegal. --Wildgoosespeeder 05:58, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Random Pokémon

Hi,,,, I am really sorry that I copied the Random Pokémon stuff from you page without your permission. But I was so excited I created a Random Generation 1 pokemon tab here....Jaison Clinton Castelino 16:03, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, I don't mind. --SnorlaxMonster 07:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Do You Always edit the Random pokemon stuff ?......Mine as too ,,,,,otherwise it will say the same Pokémon for ages....--Jaison Clinton Castelino 15:46, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
No, I don't; it is automated. What you have is probably a caching issue—try hard refreshing the page (Ctrl+F5 on Windows, don't know about other OSes) or purging the site's cache (click the clock). --SnorlaxMonster 06:52, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks--Jaison Clinton Castelino 06:55, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
It works --Jaison Clinton Castelino 08:19, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again, How is the Talk page adaption ?--Jaison Clinton Castelino 09:19, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
Honestly, I don' like it. Putting random colors all over you talk page is not a good idea. For example, currently it is a blinding pink that makes reading your talk page very annoying. --SnorlaxMonster 10:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Description template.

According to this, Amnesia description doesn't differ in FireRed/LeafGreen (and it has to be true, since this covers up in 100% with what you entered into Splash's description), but there is no RSEFRLG, only RSE and FRLG. Marked +-+-+ 12:42, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Checked, it's true. Also, wtf GameFreak. ._.. Are you trying to make our life hard? Meh, okay... not changing between RSEFRLG is okay, since it's the same generation, and Gen IV/V is exception (since by that time there is enough time for description, and differs only in few cases like Aerial Ace), but this? This is pretty... strange, and happens to be true as well. Marked +-+-+ 13:06, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Forgot to say that there are moves that have the same description for both Stadium games, like Absorb. Checking Bide reminded me of that (since that move seems to also have the same description in both Stadium games). Marked +-+-+ 11:43, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Aaaand another. Meh. Marked +-+-+ 12:50, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Isamu "Red" Akai

On Isamu Akai's or Red's talk page, did he really have Venusaur and some of the other Pokémon? I left a message on that talk page two months ago but nobody responded. The same applied for Conkeldurr but it was left there for four months. I wanted to ask you since you were the last person to edit the page. PattyMan 17:53, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

No idea, I don't read the manga. I was just putting something Dogasu suggested on the forums (and I agreed with) on the page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:25, 3 February 2012 (UTC)


when i try to undo content in forcepreview status i accidentally remove all content because of the preview button. what should i do?--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 15:52, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

So when you undo an edit then preview the box is blanked upon previewing, or the text is still in the box but when you save the page is blank? --SnorlaxMonster 02:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
blanked upon previewing.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 04:57, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I just put myself into the usergroup to test it and it worked fine. The problem is on your end, not with the usergroup. IIRC, we had a user (who wasn't in the group) that had a similar problem on a mobile device because they didn't let it fully load before they clicked the button, and it hadn't loaded the text in the edit pane. Werdnae (talk) 05:31, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Do you know how the Egg Blackout Glitch is triggered?

Hi. You seem to be really nice and helpful with the games. I don't mind that help at all. About 2 months ago I was attempting a glitch with Pokemon Gold and Silver or Silver and Crystal as Gold doesn't work and it was the egg blackout glitch. It wouldn't let me trade the egg during a link trade as I only had one Pokemon. Then I thought the glitch was triggered by beating Falkner, then receiving an Egg with only Cyndaquil or Totodile, very hard to beat Violet gym with Chikorita and still no infinite blackout glitch. Do you know any other methods to get it to work? Since I'm not actually playing my gen 2 games. I'm experimenting with them now. (MichaelXD 20:06, 3 February 2012 (UTC))

This is where it came from. Have you tried obtaining an egg, then entering a trade with just your starter and an egg, then trading the starter for an egg? It should work, since you have two Pokémon. Or is that what you were saying you already did? --SnorlaxMonster 02:29, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

So I need to beat the gym leader in more than one version first, get the egg and only have my starter and egg in one version while in another version, I can have more than one Pokemon in the party? I asked this on Yahoo Answers and only got an answer that was chatting about something dumb instead of acknowledging the question. Also is the Brock Skip Gym side effects real or the side effects of using a cheating device? I got dumb answers for that too. (MichaelXD 11:35, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

I have no guarantee that it works, it is just my guess of how it might work. Any information you can add about that glitch is appreciated.
As for the Brock Gym skip, this video shows the infinite walk down. I've watched the whole run before (it's pretty cool), and they did not use any cheats, only glitches (as is mentioned in the credits). --SnorlaxMonster 12:21, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I was actually trying to do this instead.


The game kept freezing on me and it only works on Red or Blue. No one answered and they assumed that just because I was trying to get a glitch to work, it's the same as cheating in a video game. Do I do this at school too? No it's not and thanks to those jerks, it's none of their business what I do at school. It's one I've been having a problem with for a while. (MichaelXD 14:47, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

There are glitches that sometimes freeze the game, sometimes don't. There are also sometimes variations between emulators and real games when it comes to glitches, but this is rare. --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

No it doesn't work. I keep getting "Too bad. The trade was canceled." I now have eggs on 2 games instead of just one and I did all my other trading first before attempting this glitch. (MichaelXD 19:51, 4 February 2012 (UTC))

I'm starting to think that that glitch might require cheating so that you start off with an egg. If you can't replicate it, please remove it and add a note to the talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)


Do you have skype? I'd like to be able to talk about Pomeg sub-glitches in Gen IV without having to leave a huge trail of messages that take a long time between replies, if possible ;)

Thanks, OwnageMuch 09:42, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Well, I do have Skype, but I only use it for personal purposes, rather than Bulbagarden/Pokémon stuff. If you have AIM, I'd prefer to use that, but I can make another Skype account (which may be useful at other times too). Bulbawiki staff communicate with AIM, while forums staff use Skype. --SnorlaxMonster 09:47, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't have AIM, sorry :/. If you were planning on make another account then go ahead but if it's just to talk to me then it might not be worth your touble OwnageMuch 22:03, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I wasn't going to, no. I may at some point in the future, but unless I can use the IM part of Skype through Pidgin, I probably won't get another Skype account. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)


Well, list all examples if you can. If I have to remind you, only Arceus are able to obtain Judgement, and lots of Pokemon can learn Snarl though TM. Your agrument is invalid, if I'm correct. So please spare me while I undo your undo. --Acellutor 04:19, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Snarl is currently only available via the event Zoroark. While there is a TM for it, it cannot be obtained yet, and will only be obtainable via event. Judgment applies because Arceus is event-exclusive, so so is Judgment. This also goes for all event Pokémon's signature moves such as Dark Void and Psycho Boost. --SnorlaxMonster 04:42, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Wayward Cave

To keep consistancy, why do pages like Eterna Forest, Iron Island, and Stark Mountain have the partner data included? --Wildgoosespeeder 07:17, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I think you misunderstood. I only moved the data to a different place on the page. I was saying that Platinum data wasn't missing because it was already on Mira's page, and added it. Partner data should be there. --SnorlaxMonster 10:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
For more consistency, should it be moved to the top of the page like the others are in the pages mentioned? --Wildgoosespeeder 18:33, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't think Trainers belong under "Geography". Trainers that join you for just one battle rather than follow you are generally in the Trainers section, so I don't see why followers shouldn't be either. --SnorlaxMonster 06:33, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
These trainers you don't face in the areas you team up with them. Plus the other three pages are like that so why not include Wayward Cave with the same kind of deal? --Wildgoosespeeder 07:22, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, they use the Trainer backsprite to show that you don't battle them but they battle alongside you. However, I think the best alternative is to create a new section on the pages, rather than being a subsection of "Geography" or "Trainers". So just "==Mira==". I was suggesting that we change all five pages (I don't know which one of the stat Trainers you are forgetting, probably Marley). --SnorlaxMonster 07:34, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
It is my first playthrough Pokemon Pearl Version. I am both exploring a new storyline of Sinnoh and doublechecking Bulbapedia pages for accuracy. I had no idea there were five team-ups in the game, there was even have a fan term to them, and all cover one of all six stats except special defense. I wouldn't have picked up on that. Anyways, where would be a good logical place to put each stat trainer? How about between the geography and items sections? --Wildgoosespeeder 22:50, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Directly before the "Trainers" section. --SnorlaxMonster 07:02, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Template:Infobox location

I think you should look at the talk page of Template:Infobox location. --Wildgoosespeeder 19:18, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Replied there. --SnorlaxMonster 06:33, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
OK. Thanks. Sorry I have been annoying you recently. --Wildgoosespeeder 07:19, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Image placement

Hi, I've uploaded the images of most of the rooms in Generation III ... at least all four main E4 members are complete. However, Sidney's section looks somewhat wonky (a lot of whitespace) because of the infobox pushing it down. Do you know how I can fix this, or would you like to do it instead? Haxorus 02:25, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

There's only only so much that can be don and keep it looking nice. I reduced the size of the images (there were a bit big anyway) and added some clears. Whitespace isn't always a bad thing, especially compared to infobox interference. --SnorlaxMonster 07:02, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Seen your changes, it looks much nicer now. Thanks a million! :) Haxorus 08:06, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Question about Snarl

Bringing up something posted on Zorua's talk page, since Snarl is currently only available by breeding, should it be added to the breeding learnlists? (I had added a breeding list for it on Snarl's page a while back.) XVuvuzela2010X 23:24, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw that earlier. My personal preference would be to add a note like * next to Snarl on the TM learnlist for all Pokémon that can learn it via breeding (chain breed-only Pokémon would need more detailed notes). Pokémon like Sableye who cannot learn it at all might deserve a note saying that they cannot currently know it due to the TM being unreleased. --SnorlaxMonster 23:47, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Glitchevobox template tiny error

Archive pictures not updating?

I uploaded two updated files for P a while ago. Its sprite [1] and Pokédex entry [2]. They were resized to the size of the images I uploaded, but the actual new pictures aren't showing. Why is this?--×Rsrdaman× 00:53, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Well there working now. It was just odd that the server took over a day to update the pictures..--×Rsrdaman× 22:35, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
It's a caching issue. Purging the site cache (by clicking the clock) and your own cache (Ctrl+F5) generally can fix it if you wait a short while after uploading it. It is an annoyingly common issue. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Mauville Game Corner table thanks and question

Thanks for organizing the reels list into a table! I'm thinking about whether I should reverse the rows, since the order is now visually upside-down from the reels in the game...but it might be harder to use that way? I'm guess I'm not sure if people will read Lotad above Azurill as "Lotad literally above Azurill" or "Lotad appears before Azurill".... I guess probably the former, but maybe not. AySz88 06:53, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I think that it would be better to flip them. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Done; thanks for the feedback! AySz88 07:44, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

thank you

thank you very much for the articles relating to the Gen V games third version. Yamitora1 01:07, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Not sure what you're talking about. I haven't even edited since the revelation of BW2. --SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)


Also, about the trivia on Kyurem with the "extra data placeholder" it has, is it just empty, waiting for input? Because from what i've seen, it looks as though you could merge Kyurem and Zekrom/Reshiram. Would that make sense. Or more specifically, is that possible?--×Rsrdaman× 01:22, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Every Pokémon has one byte of data stating how many forms it has. For example, Meloetta has "2" and Rotom has "6" (Pt on). Pokémon that have no forms have the number set to "0" (e.g. Bulbasaur). Pokmon that have no forms, but later gain them have it set to "1" (e.g. DP Rotom, DP Giratina, DP Shaymin, BW Kyurem). I don't think merging makes any sense (if merging were going to be a mechanic, we would have seen it in Magneton and Slowbro by now). I think the Dark Stone will turn it into Black Kyurem, the White Stone into White Kyurem, and the God Stone into Normal Kyurem; however, this is just speculation. Anyway, if you have any further non-Bulbapedia-related topics you would like to discuss with me (such as the Missingno. video you added or speculating Kyurem's mechanic for changing forms), please use the forums. Also, I'm not sure why you had all those boxes in your message - either you used a character set I don't have installed or something encoded wrong.--SnorlaxMonster 09:14, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I read about that, Its just because the new forms are the two Pokémon together its odd that they wouldnt merge...
Oh, and about the boxes, its just no-space small characters that over-lap each other.
Last question: Can you still receive an award (i.e. golden mew) even if you only do work in a sub-project, like GlitchDex?--×Rsrdaman× 23:54, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
We haven't given out Golden Awards in a while... apparently there is another award method planned, but it hasn't been implemented. However, if we do go back to Golden Awards, you certainly can, but usually glitch editing goes unnoticed anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 07:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Unacceptable Username

For the user Assofababoon. --Pokemaster97 16:24, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

It's unacceptable because it has inappropriate language in the username. The Username policy clearly states that any usernames with inappropriate language in it will be immediately blocked. Pokedex493 19:19, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you were looking for. Pokedex493 19:21, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
I know that it's unacceptable, I brought it up so he can be delt with. Maybe the question mark was misleading, but I know the policy good and well. --Pokemaster97 20:56, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Looks like Kenji-girl got it. --SnorlaxMonster 07:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Chain Breeding

Good afternoon! There is this user named Akurochan who keeps removing from the list of chain breeding of several Pokémon. I went on his talk page and saw this post in which he said "Just removed chain breeding father list, as they are just make the table too long". Is it ok ? I wanted to revert the changes but I thought it is better if I ask an admin.----DJWolfy 09:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Only the most direct fathers are to be listed. Otherwise the lists would get extremely large and become difficult to read. Werdnae (talk) 20:05, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I understand. Thanks for clarifying.----DJWolfy 20:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)


I came across this user a while ago and it struck me as suspicious because I knew about a website with the same name. I went onto the website and looked, and apparently somebody made an account on here with that username so anyone can use it. Is this against the rules? If so can this user be blocked? Pokedex493 19:50, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Most definitely not acceptable. If you see any more accounts like that, please report them. Werdnae (talk) 03:48, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I will. Thanks for taking care of it. Pokedex493 03:57, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

BW animated sprites

Hi, would it be all right if I uploaded the animated sprites for Black and White in .gif format until someone can come along and upload permanent .png versions instead? I'm aware not many people would appreciate the crummy 256-color quality .gif images offer, but they're the only alternative until the whole set of 649 animated Generation V sprites can be drawn up in .png format. What do you think? Should I go for it, or simply leave them all unanimated as they are? Thanks for your time! Haxorus 04:23, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Due to the way templates are set up, they default to png, so even if the animated sprites were uploaded as gifs, they wouldn't be used anywhere. --SnorlaxMonster 11:38, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
The Archives to-do-list links to a gif to png converter, which you could try out. Though what dimensions are your sprites? All of our BW sprites are 96px by 96px. I would upload some of the spites I have, but I wouldnt know how to increase the white/transparent space to 96px without losing the animation. XVuvuzela2010X 00:36, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, both of you. Noted. And Vuvuzela, I think mine are also 96px by 96px, but I'll have to go back and check. Have a pleasant day, Haxorus 15:19, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Those glitch sprites and dex'es

Well, I was going to switch all of the glitch sprites and dex'es over to their proper naming systems*, but it said there was a permission error on the archives page. I guess that means that regular users can't move anything? Is it possible to let a specific user do that?--×Rsrdaman× 04:53, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, only Archives admins can move files. It is possible to give temporary powers, but we generally only do this at times where lots of files need to be moved quickly (e.g. BW English release, backsprite renaming). --SnorlaxMonster 11:37, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Wait a minute

So you told me before that the Gen I glitch Pokémon 251-254 can be obtained. But 251 is obtainable by Celebi? Also the other three are obtainable by the other ?????. Am i missing something?--×Rsrdaman× 23:39, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

There are issues in trading the Pokémon from Generation II to I. If you trade Celebi or a glitch Pokémon (????? and glitch Egg) with index 000 or 252-255, the resulting Pokémon in Generation I is not constant, and seemingly random. There must be something it is determined by, but at present that is unknown. I guess cloning a Pokémon and modifying various aspects of each clone with a cheating device individually and comparing the resulting Pokémon could indicate what determines it though. --SnorlaxMonster 05:57, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Ah, ok. I can understand that for the glitch Pokémon. But the Celebi still confuses me. Why would it be different from any other Pokémon? I will check this out--×Rsrdaman× 13:26, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
Here's what the hex values look like. For whatever reason, 000 and 251-255 aren't defined (I guess those values refer to other things). As for why Celebi doesn't have a proper index number conversion, I have no idea. --SnorlaxMonster 22:22, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Category needed?

I don't think I've ever seen a page [need this] one. Frozen Fennec 23:46, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

It was primarily used when the party template was new. I have put it on Colo/XD pages in the past year, but now I think it really is unnecessary and something that only really mattered when the party template was introduced. --SnorlaxMonster 23:57, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
And [this one]? Don't think it's really needed since if an article needs rewording I'm sure most users will see that and fix it. Frozen Fennec 00:02, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Cleanup template could be substituted for it anyway. Thanks. --SnorlaxMonster 00:16, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Lastly wondering about this page. Seems rather pointless considering each episode page already notes these, why put them all on one big page? Frozen Fennec 00:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
That and maybe almost [anything here]? Frozen Fennec 00:24, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
This thread helps stuff like that actually get done. --SnorlaxMonster 10:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)


Speaking of Candidates for deletion,one of my subpages says it's in the category, but when I go there, it's not listed. Do you know why that would occur? Truthseeker4449 01:58, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

That would be because it has a deletion tag on it. Werdnae (talk) 04:39, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
{{DeleteTimer}} puts pages in that category when it's expired. --SnorlaxMonster 10:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Another user?

Will put a welcome template on their page but not sure if this user is an actual user or a ad-bot. Frozen Fennec 02:31, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Seems legit enough to me. They just linked to their Pokémon Wiki, which is fair enough. --SnorlaxMonster 02:34, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Ah, alright then. :) Frozen Fennec 02:37, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

help spam

Hi, I'm Wikinezka's Administrator. On the Wikinezka there is problem associated with spam. I saw that also appeared on Bulbapedia. But you deal with it quickly. Can you advise me how can I get rid of this problem? Pawel10s 17:16, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, we have more active admins, so we can delete them very quickly. Also, on Bulbapedia users who aren't autoconfirmed can't create pages, so we don't get bots creating spam pages; however, because you are smaller, you probably can't really afford to prevent that. You could prevent non-autoconfirmed users from making userpages (something we do too). I've seen smaller wikis set up blacklists, so you can't include words like "viagra" in pages (since this is a very common spammer word). --SnorlaxMonster 08:24, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for help.Pawel10s 08:31, 17 March 2012 (UTC)


Can a user protect his own page or talk page or only an admin is allowed to do so ?----DJWolfy 19:18, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Protection means that only admins can edit the page. Therefore, only admins can do so. Also, why would you want your user page and talk page protected? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:30, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
My archived talk page of course.----DJWolfy 19:32, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, the only reason it will be protected is if there is a history of spam and vandalism on your archive, which there most likely is not. Therefore, there is no reason to protect it so it most likely will not be protected. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:35, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
@Solar Dragon. If a user requests for an archive to be protected it can be protected. It doesn't have to be spammed to be protected. I requested my talk archives to be protected at the autoconfirmed level and there was no problem doing that, so there should be no problem doing it for DJWolfy. Remember some people just prefer to have their archives protected. --Pokemaster97 19:39, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Talk page archives are usually protected, just sop nobody gets confused and tries to add a section to it. As for protection, only admins have the protect option. If you want to request your talk archive be protected, you can just add {{protect}} to the top and an admin will get to it (or contact one of us directly). DJWolfy, I've protected your talk page archive to auto-confirmed-only (so you can still touch it), as requested. I'd rather not do admin-only as that means even you can't touch it, but if you would prefer that, let me know. --SnorlaxMonster 05:51, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
No way, it is better the way it is now. Thanks Snorlax !----DJWolfy 12:02, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Pics of Oreburgh Gym etc: Advice needed

I'm coming to you here as I've been told you're the Bulbagarden Archives administrator. As one can see here, I recently added a full map of the gym's interior right next to a smaller screenshot, which I wasn't sure what to do with (which was why I left it there). Should I leave it or remove it outright (it already links to five other pages)? What do you think?

Also, a similar issue I'd like your help tackling is the image of the giant clock in Eterna Gym, which appears to have been set up as an image specifically that of the clock itself and nothing else. However, I would instead like to put up a full map of the gym's interior as it appears in Platinum, instead of a screenshot that's been cropped around the clock. Should I upload it as a brand-new file or upload it to replace the current version?

Many thanks. Cheers, Haxorus 05:54, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, the full image can replace the partial one. It appears that some Gyms/Gym Leaders have that, and some don't, but I think it is just unnecessary. I'll deal with the replacement/removal on other pages.
The image should be replaced with the full Gym screenshot. I'm assuming that the person who took the screenshot was using the regular DS screen size and decided that the clock would be the best thing to take a shot of. Replace the current one with.
Also, the way you phrased the opening paragraph made it sound like I'm the only Archives Administrator. I am one, but I'm not the only one. Anyway, I really appreciate the work you're doing to get those map screenshots; we've needed them for a long time, but never had anybody who both knew how to do them and had the time and initiative to actually upload them. --SnorlaxMonster 06:36, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Why, thank you :-) I do my best. About the admin thing, I did suspect you weren't the only one, but I went to you because of this, and also because I've sought advice from you before. That's pretty much why.
Per your advice, I have now replaced the image. Thanks. I'm also working on images for the other Sinnoh Gyms (Canalave will probably need a layout gallery à la Galactic HQ, but other than that, it's pretty much good to go). Cheers, Haxorus 09:50, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
On another thought, should I instead create a "between-versions" gallery for the gyms in Eterna, Veilstone, Hearthome, and Snowpoint like the one that's already present on, say, Mossdeep Gym? Cheers, Haxorus 09:55, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, a gallery like that would be good where there is a difference between versions. --SnorlaxMonster 11:51, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
I think it would look much better if they were side by side instead of stacking onto each other. It makes the page look long and awkward.--ForceFire 12:57, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable to me. Just as long as there is only one floor/room. --SnorlaxMonster 12:58, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Incidentially, I noticed your changes to the Pastoria and Sunyshore Gyms. My apologies and thanks for the cleanup. However, that does bring me to a new issue – how do you suggest I produce the layout for buildings whose number of floors differ between versions, such as the Global Terminal, which jumped from one floor in DP to 4 in PtHGSS? I'm planning to produce proper floor-by-floor maps to replace the ones currently existing and then follow up with a layout table. Cheers, Haxorus 01:42, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
DP and PtHGSS have separate sections, and in the PtHGSS section there are subsections for each floor. I suggest just putting the image from Dp in its section, and the PtHGSS images in the section for each floor. --SnorlaxMonster 06:51, 21 March 2012 (UTC)


Thank you so much for helping me in wellspring cave.Can you pls teach me how to protect my userpage and make teamboxes--Shravs (New Bark Gym) 07:56, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Only admins can protect pages, so you cannot protect your userpage. In regards to "teamboxes", this page is specifically designed to teach that. Also, please don't be so excessive with exclamation marks. --SnorlaxMonster 08:01, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Genesect not in the Pokédex?

My brother recently got an Action Replay for the DS and used a code to get a Genesect early. He told me that when he checked his Pokédex, Genesect wasn't listed anywhere. Can I get some insight on that and is it trivia-worthy? Pokedex493 17:24, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Did he have the National Pokédex? --SnorlaxMonster 07:50, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes he did. For a few months now. Pokedex493 18:54, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
My guess is that rather than hacking a wild one, he turned a Pokémon he already had into one, or replaced an empty party/box slot with one. Since the Pokédex only triggers when obtaining the Pokémon, this would cause that. If he were to trade it to another game and then back again, it should appear in the Pokédex. --SnorlaxMonster 01:17, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


Shouldn't there be an origin section for berries? I wanted to ask the project leader but he seems to be inactive.----DJWolfy 22:48, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Origin stuff is actually in the infobox. The name origin fruit and design origin fruit. --SnorlaxMonster 01:17, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah, sorry, didn't notice it. Thanks !----DJWolfy 11:43, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Anotherbluejay&jimmy osirus

are writing un-sourced information and vandalism, respectively. Warn the former, and ban the latter, whose name I can't spell XD. Charlize de Rose and Herblalfusion are doing the same thing as Anotherbluejay. Herbalfusion got away with his un-sourced material and Usertalk Customizations in TTEchidna's day, but Magnedeth has a policy against such. Permablock Herbalfusion, and warn Charlize de Rose and Anotherbluejay not to imitate her.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 03:27, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Please calm down. While I do appreciate you alerting me of people breaking the rules, I do not appreciate you telling me how do to my job by telling me the type of punishment to give them. Jimmyo.sirus does deserve a warning first, but if he continues will receive a block. Anotherbluejay can receive a warning for adding information from the anime and using one specimen to give the behavior of the whole species, as can Charlize de Rose. Herblalfusion doesn't appear to have done it for a while, so there is no need to warn him right now. As for Herblalfusion's talk page, I personally don't like the non-chronological layout, but it is not currently breaking any rules, so permabanning for that is just outrageous. However, we are already planning to discuss modifying the talk page policy after MAGNEDETH gets back. --SnorlaxMonster 03:59, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I meant to say please. It slipped my mind. I didn't mean to be so intimidating. If you miss one word in key places, it messes up the whole statement. I meant to ask, and look what happened. Sorry.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 04:04, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


So there's this one User:Bennell who keeps modifying the Origin sections of Pokémon without any evidence to support it. Clearly you're aware of this. I mean he has good intentions and such, but could you please explain to him or something ? I wrote on his talk page but he seems to ignore me.----DJWolfy 14:21, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Good evening

Hello, SnorlaxMonster.

I was wondering what you think of this. I know you've seen this before and I have asked for your permission to use your template from your Pre-Release Generation 5 article. I was wondering if there's anyway we could improve the page and then set it up as a real article. I am shocked we STILL do not have articles for Pre-Released Pokemon for each of the generations (at least from 3rd to 5th generations). Han Ji-Wan 03:43, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
