=Wrong Color

Is it just me, or is the White Color template not actually white? I'm not 100% savvy with wiki coding, but it looks like it was changed to a gray color, as evidenced on the Pokémon outbreak page. Where it should be white (aka when the Pokemon doesn't show up in that particular game), it's a gray color lighter than the Platinum color but darker than the SoulSilver color. It also makes things a lot harder to read when you're trying to figure out if a Pokemon is going to show up in a game.

I'm sure this effects other pages as well, but this was the first page I found with that problem. Changing it or just a flat-out response telling me that I'm wrong would be appreciated. Slegna 07:55, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

It's off-white because this is the color for the game Pokemon White. You can't get any lighter than white (for Template:White color light), and changing that system would screw up other templates. It'd be a lot more trouble though if it was indeed pure white, though.
I do agree that maybe Pt/SS should have some differentiating... like maybe adding a tiny touch of brown to Pt, and maybe a tiny touch of blue to SS. Just having everything flat out grey is confusing. ▫▫ティナ 08:10, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Question!

I don't understand why WHITE color is darker than SoulSILVER color... →ΑΧΧΟΝΝfire 20:38, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

If I had to guess it's probably because it'd be impossible to see otherwise (note all the white on Bulba) Ataro 20:49, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
Also see above section. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 20:53, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
(conflicted) Well what I'm saying is that SoulSilver color should be like this and then White color should be like this or something. →ΑΧΧΟΝΝfire 20:56, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion

In fact, SoulSilver is lighter than White! Isn't it weird? Why not a SoulSilver bluish as seen in: a:File:SoulSilver logo.png? If we keep the blue of SoulSilver (E1E1E1) and change the other two gammas to Silver's (C0C0C0) we would have a C0C0E1, that fits perfectly for SS. (a reddish HG and a yellowish Platinum to distinguish from Silver wouldn't be a bad idea either)

White light SoulSilver light
White color SoulSilver color
White dark SoulSilver dark
