Please make sure to keep bugging me to a minimum. If I bug you on your talk page, keep the conversation there.

Hey guess what!

I'm posting this from my new DSi! Bet it logs me out on my computer! That sucks!

Ah well. At least I can't miss anything now! And the anipngs work here (too bad the roundycorners don't...)! TTEchidna 07:25, 25 April 2009 (UTC) I dont want a dsi, cuz no gba slotsShiny_Rayquaza 12:55, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Woo! Now you have no excuse to not be on constantly. Except for "sleep" (Psh) The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 12:57, 3 May 2009 (UTC)


ok i want to start a colum in wich i predict what happens in this weeks pokemon japan epise :) totoRulz 20:22, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Sure, just do it in your userspace, i.e. at [[User:Totojo158/<Subpage name>]]. Keep the edits there to a minimum, remember. — THE TROM — 21:15, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

??? Category

Arceus can still get this category and the pages are protected. *tc26* 13:45, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Arceus is technically in no type category. It's floating around all eighteen of them a little less than four times a minute. All it can do is link to the category for one second, and then poof, it's gone. And since the category is protected from creation so no one decides to create it, we've got no need to worry.

Golden Bulbasaur Award

A bit of text in there says that the Golden Slowpoke goes to whoever made the worst new page. Shouldn't that be changed from "Worst new page" to "Worst Contribs"? EDIT: It just occurred to me that you've done the Top contributors and the Top contributors of the month, but not the Golden Bulbasaur... --Alpha TotodileListen closely... 11:56, 2 May 2009 (UTC)


Why the **** did you delete a template that I created?

Shiny_Rayquaza 17:27, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

What the hell are you talking about? I checked your contribs, and none of the three templates you created were deleted... --Alpha TotodileListen closely... 18:02, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah huh, this asshole deleted my F*** yeah seaking tag, i just restored it today Shiny_Rayquaza 19:18, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. I created it, bud. It's not notable enough to be its own tag; hardly anyone used mine. TTEchidna 19:24, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

oh man! this fucking asshole got so owned! SNAP! shit son! oh wait a minute, you just insulted the Editor-in-chief of the website. hate to say it Shy Raq, but thats probably the last person you want to insult around here. i might be the second to last. -- MAGNEDETH 19:34, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

EPIC FAIL!!!--Clarky13 19:48, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
I find the fact that he used asterisks more hilarious than his random RAWR-CAPSLOCK!RAGE!!!1one. Does that make me a bad person? --Darkeiya talk to me! 01:57, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
no, youre totally rightShiny_Rayquaza 12:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
if its any consolation, i use that tag on my page, along with some that I made like "over 9000" Shiny Rayquaza 20:04, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you

Are you totally excited about the announcement of a new game. I think we both know this is what you and I have been waiting for so long. Woohoo, SGMS (GSDS) here we come. If indeed this game is the Gold and Silver remakes, do we move the appenidx page to the mainspace, or do we create a seperate page for the actual game, and leave the page with all the hints and speculation alone? Max King 21:15, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

We'll decide soon. TTEchidna 21:35, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Can I ask why you blocked me on Aim? Aim really makes a big help reducing talk page edits, as you know, usually I just asked you a question about the wiki on there, instead of taking up space on our poor old server. Max King 21:47, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Another Template...

Like it?--Clarky13 21:33, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Seems okay, but round out the bottom, too. TTEchidna 21:42, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

I like itShiny_Rayquaza 13:08, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

There we are. Nice and smooth.--Clarky13 22:21, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

YOU !!!

I AM PISSED !!!!!! U DELETED MY USERPAGE!!! totoRulz 14:17, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Way to fail at wiki, kid. TTEchidna 22:45, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

you need to sign your commentsShiny_Rayquaza 13:09, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

at leats i dont fail at life! like u! totoRulz 14:17, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Oooooh, TTE got owned. Word of advice though toto, don't insult TTE, he can block you. And saying stuff like "I am pissed" doesn't help. It just makes you sound like an angry little boy. Max King 14:20, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

If that was directed at me, I would like to clarify that i was talking to toto Shiny Rayquaza 20:02, 6 May 2009 (UTC)


(Recently added) images have been errors after uploading. This keeps appearing:

Error creating thumbnail: /home/themozz/public_html/bulbawiki/codebase-1.14/bin/ line 4: /usr/bin/convert: 
No such file or directory

Would you happen to know why? *tc26* 03:02, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Likely has to do with our recent move to dual servers. We're still working the kinks out. I've told Archaic. TTEchidna 03:04, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Just so I can give you the heads up, I did some testing, and the error appears when the size of the thumbnail is set so that it is not a divisor of the original size of the picture. For example in Ekans, for the picture of Jessie's Ekans, when you set the size to 210px, there is an error, as 210px is no divisor of 447px (the original size), but if you set it to 447px or 223.5px, then the picture is normally displayed. Yohrd 06:41, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
That... is VERY odd. Likely because the server has to do less work when creating divisible ones... I will forward this. Good work. TTEchidna 07:12, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I conducted more test, to see if it was the fact for all the files, and I have odd results... In fact, as long as the size of the thumbnail is not under a certain threshold, the thumbnail is displayed as supposed to. For Jessie's Ekans in the Ekans article it is half the original size, but I tried with RichiePikachu.png it is around 120px which is 10px more as the half of the original size. And no problem for the help, I'm used to bug testing, so as long as can help here too. Yohrd 07:44, 6 May 2009 (UTC)




I need translators. I need them now. The upcoming Sunday announcement happens just before midnight in GMT, making it actually on May 9, not May 10.

So if you can understand spoken Japanese, plz to be telling me.

Thanks! TTEchidna 19:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

23:30UTC time I believe.--Clarky13 21:13, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps the Pokémon Wiki could be of assistance here? — THE TROM — 22:03, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm very anxious with the announcement too, but sorry, I cannot help :C Rikki Kitsune ~ リッキ キツネ 23:11, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Prome would be a good choice. We also have someone else but I doubt she'll be of any help because she'll want a reward for it... --ケンジガール 05:34, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Nice jab. I've asked Prome over on PW, so now it's a matter of him getting back to me.
I think that it deserves a Skype chat on Saturday evening/Sunday morning where we all participate. TTEchidna 06:17, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
OMG. The anoument is on my birthday.--Clarky13 07:20, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
You gonna have fun searching for that Shiny Female Sandshrew in Union Cave? The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 10:55, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
After soft resetting for a female Cyndaquil, yes. TTEchidna 12:15, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Great, good for you. And Prmatt touched your future news article in the Bulbanews, which sort of pointless edit... Kevzo8 12:35, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Mumblegrumble. TTEchidna 19:26, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
I gotta look far and wide for people gossiping about me, eh? Sorry about that, was sorta in a patrol mode, and I just noticed that the CategorizeIn template was on a user page, and since I got criticized by Kevzo8 for the same thing, I thought it would still apply.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 at 22:31, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
<includeonly>. Meaning categories won't appear unless you use the template somewhere. And, yeah, TTE made some instructions. Kevzo8 01:40, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
What it actually shows? Usually that's not the case that it links... at all. Because it doesn't unless you put it into another page. TTEchidna 02:05, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon of the Day?

I was wondering; how does the Pokemon of the day work? Does the site randomly change it based on some complex system, or do you just choose one? If it is the later, on Wednesday (the 6th) can you make it Flygon?--Gou 17:17, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

The exact calculation is...

IF it's not December 10 (in which case it will ALWAYS be Bulbasaur), the Pokémon is whatever the Unix time of midnight on that calendar date is divided by what number day of the year it is, and divided by 493 to get the remainder. Meaning, today, we get #315, Roselia

I'm likely gonna change it though. Make it a little more complex. So hey, Flygon might come up randomly. TTEchidna 19:24, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

As of two seconds ago...

The calculation is now:

Take the Unix time of midnight today (1503100800) plus the number formed by the current year, date, and month combined into one (20170819 for today) times the number formed by the day of the year, week number in the year, and number of the day of the week (Sunday being 0) combined (230336 for today). Then take all the previous and divide it by the number of days in the month times 8 (for August, 31 * 8 is 248), and add to all previous the number of the current day of the year (230 for today). Then take the whole damn thing and see what the remainder is when you divide by 493, and add 1.

This results in 261, making Poochyena the Pokémon of the day today.

Any questions? The talk page opens again at 8 PM UTC. Funny thing is, since I forgot to include the + 1 at the end before, there was that 1/493 chance that the PotD would end up being... Missingno. And completely blow up my template since {{Num2N}} doesn't set itself for 0. BUT IT DIDN'T, WHAT A MIRACLE. TTEchidna 19:52, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Working is fun....

So yeah. Do you remember what comes first in Emerald, the Mossdeep Space Center thing, or Groudon being awakened? I'm messing with the party templates on Tabitha's page to see if I can get them updated for the Emerald section and forgot the order of battles. And yeah, Tabitha's page says the Mossdeep thing happened after Groudon woke up, but I just wanna make sure. R.A. Hunter B. 02:35, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

I... think it does. Since they're planning to blow up Mt. Chimney. TTEchidna 03:37, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Ehhh.... okay. I don't remember why they want to do that, but oh well. I'll work on the party templates. If something's wrong, people can change it. R.A. Hunter B. 20:36, 5 May 2009 (UTC)


I'm posting this 'cos you OBVIOUSLY DON'T GET WHAT YOU SAY. Why do you say random things ALL THE TIME? Even, I predict that season 12 will suck. I MEAN IT! GV might be cool, but if it gets wierd A LOT, the same thing WILL HAPPEN! User:1337fighter

Um. Okay. TTEchidna 07:58, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

GSDS page title

I don't think we ever really came up with an answer to this question: What should we do with the GSDS page once GSDS is announced? I've re-started the discussion over here, and since the page is kind of your baby, I'd like you to weigh in. --((Marton imos)) 06:18, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Damn right it's my baby, but at this point it's kinda been through the wash with others... TTEchidna 06:48, 6 May 2009 (UTC)


How do you put Userboxes???like the one you have in your Userpage...I just want to improve my Userpage...hihihi if its ok.. Thankz..

Gio12 10:30, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Same as any other template. TTEchidna 12:24, 6 May 2009 (UTC)


Hey TTE, why can't we have images in our sigs anymore?--Shiny Rayquaza 21:43, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Because it slows down the server to have that many images floating around, and I working on learning how to read, im trying to learn how to not just look at the pretty pictures.User:DCM 21:48, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
