Firstly, this page looks very nice Adyniz, but I would like to suggest an additional section to it. Could you make a section detailing how to make a proper episode synopsis including the correct link templates to use and ect. I feel this can be useful from all of the linking errors I've been fixing. It also may encourage new people to write summaries since they would have a stronger basis for writing them. Thanks in advance. --Pokemaster97 02:52, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Sure, sounds like a good idea. I'll try to consult the other staff members as well. Also, if you have something in mind i.e a rough draft of that section or anything like that, feel free to mail it to me if you like. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 14:32, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
I'll see if I can think of a rough draft, but I think you guyss would be better at writing up a formal section with details and whatnot. --Pokemaster97 16:39, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, it's okay. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 19:05, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
If you would like a visual of how I kind of pictured the section, I made a rough draft on my sandbox page. You you could check it out that would be good. --Pokemaster97 03:42, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Looking good, I have added it to MOS. ♫♪ エイディニズ ♪♫ 08:29, 27 February 2012 (UTC)


When an episode is aired dubbed, is there a specific process on how to update the character's and the location's arcticles? Today's Pinot Noir/Richard/Ricard/Ricard Noveau is an example of that. --Abcboy (talk) 04:01, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

We usually go off of closed captions. If they're not revealed, we ask Tom Wayland. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:06, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

XY Update

This really needs to be updated for the X&Y series. Serena and Clemont need to added, as does Dedenne. --HoennMaster 18:51, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Added the XY numbering and updated the Anime reference list, that's all that needed to be updated, I think. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 19:24, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Evolved Pokémon in the anime

"Pokémon that are later revealed to have evolved should be linked to as the evolutionary level they appeared at in the episode". That's stupid. We're told all the time not to leave redirects and it's simple coding to have both the correct name and link (Phanpy. See? That easy.), but this specific section of a specific type of article is exempt for seemingly no reason at all? Asinine. Either make sense of this discrepancy, remove this rule, or drop the redirect rule altogether. --TheVeryBest 17:27, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

It should be obvious that the rule makes it an exception to the redirect rule.--ForceFire 00:49, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I know that. So then, anywhere in the wiki, we can link to May's Squirtle, Sewaddle, and Venonat as such? --TheVeryBest 03:19, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
The keyword in the rule is episode.--ForceFire 03:39, 25 April 2014 (UTC)


Shouldn't one of the sentences in "Plot summary" be "All plot summaries should be written in a third person, present tense, neutral point of view."? ?????? 17:32, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Sun/Moon Protags?

Why aren't Lillie, Mallow, Lana, Kiawe, and Sophocles listed when discussing which Pokemon get pages? Nutter Butter (talk) 00:58, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
