Edit Request

Can the default body setting be changed to a:File:BodyUnknown.png instead of File:Body?.png. Same goes for Template:PokémonInfoboxNoncat. --SnorlaxMonster 10:22, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Done. —darklordtrom 10:32, 15 April 2010 (UTC)



If anything, link to Pokémon, but I'd prefer not to link at all... TTEchidna 03:15, 12 June 2010 (UTC)


The type effectiveness should have it set as an unknown type, as currently it substs as a Normal type, which will mess some new pages up. I mean have it take normal damage from Fighting and Ghost. --SnorlaxMonster 07:20, 26 July 2010 (UTC)


Whenever I use this template to make a new Pokémon page in my userspace, the box on the right hand side doesn't appear; only the coding shows at the top of the page. Is this normal or can something be done to this template to keep that from happening? --PhantomJunkie 01:22, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Are you using subst: to call the template? Also, there's a quick how-to on the top of this page. Jello 01:28, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
I copied directly from the top of this page into my new page, and it's messing up. It's giving me this at the top of the preview:
{{| jname=ミルホッグ | tmname=Miruhoggu | image=file:BW miruhoggu.png | size=180px| art=BW | caption=Image | pron=pee-kah-bloo | species=SPECIES | typen=0 | type1=Normal | type2= | abilityn=1 | ability1=----- | ability2= | idex=??? | height-m=0.00 m | weight-kg=0.00 kg | egggroupn=1 | egggroup1=Unknown | egggroup2= | eggcycles=-1 | expyield=? | lv100exp=Unknown | gendercode=256 | color=Unknown | catchrate=Unknown | body=Unknown | pokefordex= | generation=5 | footnotes=}}
Then it goes into the normal stuff at the top of the page. the whole "Miruhoggu is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V."
Here's my coding: {{subst:NewPokémon|MIRUHOGGU|ミルホッグ|Miruhoggu|typen=1|type1=Normal|species=SPECIES|pron=Me-roo-hog-goo|height-m=0.00 m|weight-kg=0.00 kg|image=file:BW miruhoggu.png}}--PhantomJunkie 01:35, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah, here we go, you forgot one thing (the namespace): {{subst:NewPokémon|user|MIRUHOGGU|ミルホッグ|Miruhoggu|typen=1|type1=Normal|species=SPECIES|pron=Me-roo-hog-goo|height-m=0.00 m|weight-kg=0.00 kg|image=file:BW miruhoggu.png}} Jello 01:41, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Edit request

The first line should have "a" before the type (it will need manually fixing for Electric- and Ice-types, or a switch could be used). {{Type effectiveness}} should used instead of {{DP type effectiveness}}. The defaults of things like weight and height should be 0, and species should default to nothing, not "New Species". --SnorlaxMonster 14:54, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Out of date... Maybe delete?

If this is still being used or expected (or possibly even suspected) to be used, it should probably be updated. It currently uses Template:PokémonInfobox instead of Template:Pokémon Infobox and Template:Availability instead of Template:Availability/Header/etc.

If not, perhaps it should be deleted. Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:07, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Two years later, a new syntax:
|1=ENGLISH NAME (if none, do not include)
|4=ROMAJI, if trademarked romanization differs

The Notes section has been changed to References. For consistency, the template should be updated with the current name. Landfish7 07:39, 12 March 2023 (UTC)

That makes sense, I've updated it here and at Bulbapedia:Project Pokédex/Structure. Nescientist (talk) 16:53, 14 March 2023 (UTC) Nescientist (talk) 16:53, 14 March 2023 (UTC)
