Permission to edit? I'd like to change the mention of you into other words. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 01:40, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes. In fact, that applies to everybody. Treat this page like a normal mainspace page, and edit the hell out of it. Ztobor 16:14, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

You know what this needs?

Less "you", more "Trainer" instead of "trainer". And better chart coloring. TTEchidna 05:09, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes to that as well, except that I kept falling back on the Context-dependent Bulbapedia method (instead of the Bulbapedia method) when capitalizing. Ztobor 16:14, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Reports of special cases

Any reports of exceptional cases should go under this heading. They must include the following information:

  1. The Trainer that was battled, and their location, as well as whether or not you battled with a Pokémon holding an Amulet Coin.
  2. The order in which Pokémon appeared, including their levels. If a Pokémon was switched out by means of Whirlwind or the Trainer manually switching out another Pokémon, include this in the order.
  3. The final payout, and what you expected. If you didn't know what to expect, give a short explanation about why it's strange.
  4. The Poké Balls in the Trainer's party lineup that turned dark after a Pokémon fainted, and the order in which they did so. Report them in order from left to right - the leftmost ball is 1.
  5. The order in which the Pokémon fainted. This is only needed if the player used Whirlwind or the Trainer manually switched out another Pokémon, because otherwise, the order that the Pokémon fainted in and the order that they were sent out is exactly the same.
  • This is needed because we need to know which Pokémon corresponds to which ball.

Without all the information above, the exceptional case could have simply been a mistake in reading, and it will be ignored.

An example of the report is below.

Example report

  1. The trainer battled was Beauty Julia. (No amulet coin)
  2. Level 32 Paras, Level 32 Paras (switch out) Level 35 Parasect, Level 32 Paras.
  3. She paid out PokémonDollar.png3080 when it should have been PokémonDollar.png2816.
  4. 3, 1, 2.
  5. Paras 32, Parasect 35, Paras 32.

Note that this report is actually false, because the Level 35 Parasect was last in the lineup - they were just sent out of order. It just serves as an example. Ztobor 16:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Base pay for XD and Colo

Are there base pays for these games as well? If so, is it the same format? ht14 03:39, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Prize money

It's referred to in-game as prize money, so I definitely think it should be moved. --Abcboy (talk) 02:42, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Just wondering, what game(s) do you see this? ht14 18:15, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
It is in the Amulet Coin's Gen IV and V descriptions. --SnorlaxMonster 18:21, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
It is also mentioned in-game in the Black Tower and White Treehollow by several opponents. --Abcboy (talk) 22:22, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Also, Professor Oak says it in FireRed and LeafGreen after the first battle: "If you win, you earn prize money, and your POKéMON will grow!" -EVsAndIVsaurs (Talk) 02:30, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

The list is incomplete

Miss Gen III as Bug Maniac, Expert, Nex Maniac, Kindler, Old Couple, Parasol Lady, PKMN Ranger, Ruin Maniac, Sis & Bro, Sr. & Jr., Triathlete, Cool Couple, Crush Girl, Crush Kin and Painter

--HoopsterJohn (talk) 15:02, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Is the same?

Boss class trianer applies also in Aqua Leader, Magma Leader and Boss Galactic?

Admins from Teams Aqua, Magma, Rocket and Flare, also applies like as Commander and Executive class?

Remove Poke Dollar signs

The tables on this article aren't really sortable right now, and I think removing the PokémonDollar.png's in the tables will make them sortable. Can I do that? sumwun (talk) 21:42, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Never mind someone fixed it. sumwun (talk) 00:01, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
