By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Is there a reason you're removing trivia from pages? -- MAGNEDETH 19:11, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

TM info

I'm not sure if you're still editing the TM information in terms of prices and sell prices in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, but I would like you to take a look at this. I want it all to be concise before we start this mini-project of adding prices. Since I have no access to the Japan-exclusive Mystery Dungeon games, then once the charts are finished, we could add the info. If anything, check to see if a specific TM (e.g. TM34) is filled for both RB and TDS before adding to the TM pages. Thanks. ht14 01:57, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Capitalizing "the"

I put it in my edit summaries when I undid your edits involving the Riches, but I just wanted to let you know that the word "the" should never be capitalized except at the beginning of a sentence or title. Therefore, the family name "the Riches" uses a lowercase "the". This is a widely accepted stylistic choice in just about all formal writing that I know of, and you can find plenty of sources on it via Google, so for terseness I'll only quote one source, the American Psychological Association: "This boils down to using lowercase only for “minor” words of three letters or fewer, namely, for conjunctions (words like and, or, nor, and but), articles (the words a, an, and the), and prepositions (words like as, at, by, for, in, of, on, per, and to), as long as they aren’t the first word in a title or subtitle." I hope you keep this in mind in the future; thanks for listening to my rambling, and happy editing in the future. :) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 06:46, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

In the latest main series games, an Undella Town NPC uses The Riches as a title: "I wonder why only the father from The Riches stayed here..." As such, those three edits were indeed made in concordance with the well-known style you're caps locking about in your edit summaries and attempting to lecture about on this page. That being said, I have no problem with your reversions, as the capitalization is not present in Black and White. Yvnr (talk) 12:33, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
I found one example of The Riches mid-sentence in a text dump of Black (I don't have a B2W2 text dump) "I will protect the honor of The Riches!", but all the others use lowercase "the". I think it is due to being a Trainer class name. IMO it would be best to go with lowercase "the". --SnorlaxMonster 12:53, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Join Avenue Cafe

I'm doing work on the Join Avenue page, and I was wondering if you could tell me if there was a way to tell whether your Cafe is type A, or type B. I can't seem to find anything about it in-game, and you added the templates to the page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 15:51, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

If the shop owner is a non-Janus NPC fan, the information is in the article's NPC fan table, but since you're asking, I assume that's not the case. Telling you how to identify the variation of your Café would be easier if I knew its rank. Please note that variations A, B, C, and D are arbitrary terms I made up, and as such are not found in the games, which never make any mention of service variance within shops of the same type.

Alright. My Cafe is run by Jocelyn and it's Rank 8. If need be, I'll list what her wares are. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 17:02, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
