New Versions

Hey, Adyniz, can you replace those four files: Seel; Dewgong; Dragonair and Donphan with those: Seel; Dewgong; Dragonair and Donphan, because they're bigger and with better quality! I'm asking you, because Archives are still protected. TheSeviper ♫ハブネーク♫ 16:05, 22 July 2012 (GMT)

Done, I have replaced all the lower quality pics with the higher quality ones. If you don't mind, may I know from where did you get them? AdynizWanna talk? 13:40, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Mmm... I think Donphan and Dragonair were send by my friend, he got them from an official site, and I think I got Seel and Dewgong from a website via Opera Dragonfly! TheSeviper ♫ハブネーク♫ 17:21, 22 July 2012 (GMT)
I see, thanks for the high quality images. AdynizWanna talk? 14:54, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

My Apologies

Hey Ady...I just wanted to apologize to you for my little outburst the other night. I was in a bad mood and didn't even think to look at other movie articles before I reverted. Sorry to take it out on you. :) --HoennMaster 01:12, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

B2W2 US Boxarts with ESRB Ratings

Hey, Adyniz! I'm trying to upload White 2's US Boxart with the ESRB rating, but it doesn't seem to be working. Is uploading images something only for staff? If so, could you or someone from the staff maybe upload the images? We don't need the boxart with "Rating Pending" on it anymore. Thanks! Torpoleon (talk) 17:56, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Bulbagarden Archives is locked at the moment, and it currently do not have a determined opening date. So yes, only the Archives staff members can upload images. And sure, I won't mind uploading the requested images. AdynizWanna talk? 18:08, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Alright, so, is it OK that I found the images on The Pokémon Wiki? Also, they're a little bit small, but hopefully it will suffice.

White 2-

Black 2- - unsigned comment from Torpoleon (talkcontribs)

I found the similar images on Gamestop, with no distorted pixels but smaller in comparison. The problem is that they are of very low quality/resolution as compared to the ones that we are currently using. Besides, the rating is already mentioned in the article, so it is not that big of an issue right now. Therefore, I think we should wait for the high quality versions. Also, if you forgot to sign your comment, you are not suppose to sign it later, it is against the talk page policy. AdynizWanna talk? 19:39, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Oops, sorry with the signing. I usually never forget. Anyways, sure, we can wait for HQ versions. Torpoleon (talk) 20:20, 24 July 2012 (UTC)


Hey, Adyniz sorry for my stupid question, but do you know when the Archives will be unlocked? TheSeviper ♫ハブネーク♫ 20:53, 25 July 2012 (GMT)

Unneeded redirect?

Take a look at Template:New episode? Those redirects were created to remove unnecessary redlinks from the Wanted Pages. Take a look at what links to them before you just up and delete things. MaverickNate 19:48, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Isn't that the case with at least one article every time? For example, no matter what we do, the next (currently unrevealed) episode will always appear in the wanted pages. Right now, it is BW093. So, why those two are getting special treatments? AdynizWanna talk? 23:15, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Because it isn't the next immediate one. They aren't the ones that should theoretically be created in one week. There will always be future things; however, these links aren't considered "future things". Instead, they are considered links that exist only because a template forces them to. MaverickNate 23:46, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh, okay. AdynizWanna talk? 00:01, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Battle judge va

I saw on Bill Roger's facebook page that he voiced the battle judge of the Clubsplosion tournament. Shouldn't that be listed on his bulbapedia page? PattyMan 00:44, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

No, he did not say that. What he said was "You can also hear me in the next few eps as the battle judge". That does not necessarily mean that he is voicing any of the Clubsplosion judges (Freddy O'Martian is voiced by Tom Wayland, and Marc Thompson voiced Don George). He might be referring to a "future" dub episode, since a battle judge does appear in BW083/84 (Homika's Gym referee) or it could be Jeremy (BW086). AdynizWanna talk? 08:41, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh wait, now I see what you were referring to, after skimming through the episode. Well, if Bill was referring to that guy then it should be noted, but it is not confirmed yet. I will try to ask Kg to see if she can get it confirmed from Tom. AdynizWanna talk? 08:50, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. PattyMan 13:23, 26 July 2012 (UTC)


First let me start by saying that for the editing i was using the preveiw button however, i am human just like you and I will never be able to catch every mistake Make but when i do i go back fix them and people edit sharking me isn't helping anything just know that i know its your job to fix things.Glalie Power (talk) 16:08, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

I am not sharking or degrading you, but pointing out where you went wrong, so that you can improve yourself and become an even better contributor. It is only for your own benefit. I know that you are a human being just like everyone else and we are bound to make mistakes. So, if someone makes an incorrect edit, it is the duty of another user to correct the problem. AdynizWanna talk? 16:41, 3 August 2012 (UTC)


Hey, where do you get HD pictures? Please reply :) (sorry, I'm from Poland)--Rafi862 (talk) 16:18, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

No particular website, I take them myself. AdynizWanna talk? 16:44, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
How?--Rafi862 (talk) 09:35, 1 September 2012 (UTC)


Hi, Adyniz, I am new at Bulbapedia, so I can't upload any images, as you are an admin you can. I found an good image for the ranger, Luana, that page has no profile image. Can you upload it? I uploaded it on the pokemon wikia, where I can upload Image's even though I am new there. I send you a link to that image:[1].

Sorry for my maybe bad grammar, but I am dutch.

--Quilafa (talk) 11:24, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Done, thanks for the image. AdynizWanna talk? 13:51, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Project notice

Hello! I came here you a question*. I was reading the anime MoS and I noticed that the first section of that page states that only completed articles should have the project anime notice, but I have seen many stubs which have the project notice. I was going to ask KG 'bout it, but I thought that since you were the one who created that page, you might have a clue about it. What do you think should be done? Pokégeek 09:59, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

For this question, Kenji-girl would be the right person to go to. AdynizWanna talk? 10:44, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Dawn returning to Hoenn

I don't understand why you undid my edit on BW093 in the major events section. Dawn is currently on a journey in Hoenn, so it's obvious that she's going back there. We did the same thing when May briefly returned, so why should Dawn be different? サトシ101 (talk) 20:01, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

May explicitly stated that she has earned 3 Johto ribbons and she'll go back to Johto in order to win the remaining ribbons. How do we know that Dawn is currently on a journey in Hoenn? And I honestly fail to see the 'obvious' part here. She did not say a single word about her journey in Hoenn region. So, assuming that she will go back to Hoenn is pure speculation at the moment. Unless we get an official confirmation, it should not be added. AdynizWanna talk? 20:12, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, if you put it that way, then maybe we should wait. サトシ101 (talk) 20:23, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Image (again)

Hi, I talked to you earlier about an image, now I can upload images so I uploaded a image for Krokka Tunnel on Bulbagarden, but I don't see it at the Krokka Tunnel page, can you do something about it? (Click here for the Image on bulbagarden). --Quilafa (talk) 12:59, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

The image is there but it is not showing up because of the cache. Try purging the cache (click on the clock on top of the page). If that doesn't work, open this link* and then select "show preview". If the image shows up when previewing it, click on the "Save page" button and it should fix the problem. This edit will not be counted as an actual edit, but rather a 'null edit'. Null edit technique usually helps in fixing the cache problems. Try it and let me know. AdynizWanna talk? 15:24, 26 August 2012 (UTC)


I recreated his page because he seems to be confirmed to be Ash's rival. I did not know. I'm sorry. Can I recreate it the day before BW092 airs?- unsigned comment from ‎Chomper4 (talkcontribs)

He does not seem to be confirmed to be the 'new' rival but merely a Pokémon Trainer, at least for now. A confirmation requires a solid official proof, which we do not have at the moment. He is not travelling with the gang either since there is no sign of him being in the TR two parter. No summary, magazine scan, or any other source has confirmed his status. Therefore, I do not see the need of creating the article before the episode airs. However, you are more than welcome to create the article once the episode officially airs but please do not forget to put some more effort, as I mentioned in my previous message on your talkpage. For now, you can save the article in a notepad file if you want.
Last but not the least, on all talk pages, write ~~~~ or click on button_sig.png button after every post. This automatically generates your signature, and lets everyone know who has written what, and when. Thank you, and have a good time contributing! AdynizWanna talk? 14:46, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Sure, and do you mean when BW092 or BW093 airs? Chomper4 (talk) 14:52, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
BW093, the episode in which Kotetsu debuts. AdynizWanna talk? 15:01, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but its just I am worried that someone else will create it. I heard that the serebii forums are talking about proof for Kotetsu being the new rival. Chomper4 (talk) 21:48, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Big question due to there being a Kotetsu picture?

Can I make User:Chomper4/Kotetsu? Chomper4 (talk)

We have been over this before, twice. No article before the episode. Whether their is a picture available or not, we still do not know anything about the character. I have already explained everything in detail in our previous discussions. If you are concerned about the credit i.e someone else might create the article before you, then I must inform you that Bulbapedia is a community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Everyone gets an equal chance to contribute, unless there is a good reason to prevent a certain group of users from editing. The article will be unprotected exactly after the episode is done airing. I repeat, please do not create an article related to Kotetsu in any of the namespaces before BW093's official airing, and it applies to everyone. Thank you.

Humilau Gym and the Pokémon League Calendar

G'day, Adyniz. I included one link to a Humilau Gym season on the article talk page (hover your mouse over the shaded areas to see what season is in progress). In case that's not enough, see here, here, here, here for local seasons across the United States. All "Humilau Gym" seasons follow an Opelucid Gym season (July) and start on the 12th August AFAIK. Presumably there's a "master" schedule with these specific names and dates which seems to be out of the reach of us mere mortals (!). All the very best, Shiny Porygon (talk) 07:37, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Aha, thanks for the links. The hovering thing didn't occur to me at all when I was going through the league pages yesterday, all I could see was Aspertia. Thanks again. AdynizWanna talk? 07:42, 22 September 2012 (UTC)


Dude, why did you edit one of my personal subpages? I realise that the character name had changed, but you can't just go around editing other peoples pages. It would have redirected to the right page anyway. I don't see what the point of it was.--Pokélova! 17:25, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I can go around editing other people's pages, if an edit is to be done. Whenever someone moves an article, it is a common courtesy to fix the links, whether it is a mainspaced article or a user's namespace, simple as that. Also, I do not appreciate the tone you are using, it is disrespectful. You have been on Bulbapedia for more than 4 years now, you should know better. AdynizWanna talk? 17:50, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Redirects are not an acceptable reason to edit other people's userpages. They never have been. And there was nothing disrespectful about Pokelova's comment, he is correct. Linking to redirects does not cause the same sort of problem that linking to non existent pages, or using incorrect categories does. Just because you don't agree with someone does not mean you can tell them off for breaking a rule when they didn't do anything wrong. That certainly is disrespectful. MaverickNate 18:12, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Acceptable reason? Excuse me but it is a common courtesy to fix those things regardless of the namespace. And telling me "you can't just go around editing other peoples pages" is disrespectful, when I was just doing my job. As a staff member and as a human being, I expect at least a little bit of respect from the people, especially when I try to be nice with others. AdynizWanna talk? 18:49, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Staff members may edit users' pages for technical reasons as long as the output is not changed. I don't understand why it's such a big deal. I would certainly appreciate if people weren't at each other's throats over something so minor. Werdnae (talk) 19:22, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Underleveled Pokémon table

Hello again, Adyniz. I was wondering if it would be alright to create a table on the Level article for specific trainers with underleveled Pokémon. Here is a link to the conversation where it was mentioned in: User_talk:Adyniz/Archive_3#Trivia_Removal Thank you for your time. --Super goku (talk) 01:28, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Since it has been almost a week I will work on create a table on my userspace for a guide as to how it would appear. Please let me know if there is any problems or comments that you have. --Super goku (talk) 22:14, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
My apologies for the delay. I still can't give you a green signal to mainspace it because I haven't brought it up yet. But sure, you can create it in your userspace. AdynizWanna talk? 01:55, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Ah, it is alright. I was a bit worried that it had been denied or something.  :) Thank you for the reply. --Super goku (talk) 02:27, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, I have made a few edits to it here since my last comment. Let me know if you have any suggestion or if something should be changed. (Of course, you are free to edit it as well.)  :) --Super goku (talk) 02:20, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
The basic info is arranged in a decent manner, but there is a chance that I might be missing something. Mainly because I am not that good when it comes to templates. So, it would be nice if you show it to Werdnae or Jo The Marten for more feedback. They have more knowledge on the subject :) AdynizWanna talk? 17:30, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. I think that there might be better ways to show the information but if there is some then I do not know them. Thank you for the reply and for helping me.  :) --Super goku (talk) 20:11, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Once again, Hello. After the conversation above, I went to Jo the Marten for more feedback. They seemed to be alright with the table, but the message ended up bring quite a bit of helpful attention to the page. Now that I have sorted the suggestions and seeing how it is, I believe that it is in a relatively stable state for the moment to discuss. Is it proper if I may request if the table could be greenlighted or would it be better to discuss with another user? No matter what, thank you for your help in this.  :) --Super goku (talk) 07:23, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Good to know. I would suggest you to drop a new message on the article's talk page regarding what you have in mind or you can bring it to the higher authorities, Werdnae and Kogoro, for the final decision. AdynizWanna talk? 09:50, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
I think that I will work on the table a bit more since Marked +-+-+ has helped to point something out to me before I take it to either Werdnae or Kogoro. Thanks for the help. --Super goku (talk) 17:46, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Season 15 ending

Just curious as to how you guys found out the season ends with that episode? I haven't seen anything anywhere else. --HoennMaster 00:32, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Here, BW101. If you zoom the image, you can see the production code (1604) on top, which means it is the 4th episode of the 16th season. Which makes BW098 its first episode. AdynizWanna talk? 01:55, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank You for clearing that up for me. :) --HoennMaster 05:44, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
No problem. AdynizWanna talk? 09:37, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Scan translation

I uploaded this image (File:Ash vs Kotetsu scan.png )and as I couldn't find any way to translate it's information ,I thought to ask you if you can ?★Alex★ Water 18:20, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry but I do not speak Japanese. Therefore, I cannot translate the dialogues in the scan. Not to mention, it has been out there for weeks. AdynizWanna talk? 02:57, 24 December 2012 (UTC)


Did The Road to Humilau air in the US, as I saw a Who's That Pokémon? image already uploaded, or unless the UK also does WTP? Another thing, is the trivia relating with the music being heard from the original version of the episode? PattyMan 05:59, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

As the episode article says, the episode will air on Jan. 5 in US but it has already aired in UK. And the UK version uses the same WTPs as US, much like every international version. And the Mezase humming sound was changed in the dub. AdynizWanna talk? 06:36, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Manga Update

Since you seem to the quickest to get a hold of. I thought I would show you these pages so Bulbanews can report it. Sadly I don't have time to submit and correct everything myself, otherwise I would :( --HoennMaster 21:25, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Not an issue and thanks for the links. As for BW, I am confused since we already have this but after talking to Ataro, it seems that the new one is mostly likely the English version of the 43rd volume and the new HGSS volume is probably the 41st, as you know. The problem is that we have a little to no info about the releases and 'no cover' makes it even harder to identify. I'll forward these to Zesty, just in case. Thanks again AdynizWanna talk? 12:23, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
My guess is the same as yours and I also have the same concerns. While I think it is likely to be #43 and #41, it's so hard to know without a cover. I would guess VIZ Media doesn't want to release HeartGold & SoulSilver arc with the name "Diamond, Pearl & Platinum" lol. For the Black and White one, while they've done the Black & White arc in those mini-volumes, I guessed they might do them in compilations now that it's being published in collected volume format since there might be additional content. I've been sick the last couple days so I haven't been on the computer much but you could put it on Bulbanews yourself if you want, maybe use Rumor template on Bulbanews since it's mostly speculation, though it is on Amazon so some part of it is legit. That's my two cents anyway. --ZestyCactus 16:04, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Section for Challenge Mode teams in the Pokémon League (Unova) Article

The Challenge Mode teams for the Unova Elite 4 & Iris wont fit with everything else in the Unova Pokémon League page, so should there be a section called Pokémon League (Unova)/Black 2 and White 2 Challenge Mode or Pokémon League (Unova)/Black and White, putting the BW teams there and having the Easy/Normal & Challenge B2W2 teams on the regular page? Torpoleon (talk) 18:38, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing it up. BW and B2W2 Normal Mode teams are staying on the main article and the Challenge Mode teams have been added to a new sub-page. AdynizWanna talk? 21:22, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, Adyniz! Torpoleon (talk) 21:56, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
Hey, again. Sorry to bug you but, the teams in the regular article are only Normal Mode. Putting in Easy Mode just barely doesn't fit (tried it and it doesn't work). What should be done? Should the Challenge Mode section be reserved for the BW teams instead or have a whole article for BW and a whole article for B2W2, similarly to Unova's Victory Road? Torpoleon (talk) 12:15, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm confused. Sorry but aren't Easy and Normal Modes the same? Also, which article are you referring to? I haven't gotten much far in the game and the Unova E4 articles refer to them as "Easy Mode/Normal Mode", which lead me to think that they are the same thing. AdynizWanna talk? 15:26, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Easy/Normal Mode have the same Pokémon & movesets, but different levels and money earned from victory (the individual pages of the Unova E4 & Iris have been updated to have Easy/Normal Mode and I tried putting those in instead of just the regular Initial Battle, but it doesn't fit, for some reason). By what article am I referring to, do you mean when I said BW & B2W2 should have their own articles? Sorry that this is getting a bit confusing, but hopefully it can all be worked out quickly!

HD Anime Images

Hey Adyniz, Masatoshi says you know how to get HD pictures for the anime. Could you please tell me? Because most of the pictures I upload are reverted. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 03:22, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Here. AdynizWanna talk? 10:13, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, but where do I go to get the thread? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 12:20, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
The current 'general' anime thread is this one. As for the specific episode thread, one of the users usually posts the link in the general thread right before the episode's airing. For example, BW116 thread. AdynizWanna talk? 12:38, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. How would I find threads for previously aired episodes? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 20:42, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Google. They follow the same pattern for the titles of the episode threads. As for the really old ones, I am sorry but I don't think there is an index available for them. AdynizWanna talk? 11:03, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Now none of my images will be reverted. And by the way, sorry about giving you and Masatoshi a hard time with Ash's Pignite. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 18:32, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Hey Adyniz, Google isn't working. I still can't find threads for any other episodes other than the one you sent me for BW116. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 02:33, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Same goes for me. PattyMan 02:50, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Try searching ポケットモンスターBW シーズン2 第33話. AdynizWanna talk? 06:52, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
It says "this thread has been stored in a warehouse past log". Maybe they delete the threads come a while after they air? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 11:03, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
There are usually multiple links available (I don't really know the complete system). For example, the Toro links usually get archived while the logosoku threads keep their posts. Here is the BW117 thread. AdynizWanna talk? 15:13, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
It seems like you know how to get the threads. Could I just ask you to send me the link to the thread whenever I need it? Don't worry, I won't go "Nutreyz"..... :> the great MIKORO (talk to me) 13:16, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
I do not have a problem with that, but I am usually busy with other stuff on the working days. So, I may not be able to respond right away. AdynizWanna talk? 15:53, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Alright, cool. It doesn't matter to me if you don't respond right away. Could you send me the BW107 thread? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 17:38, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

BW107 thread. AdynizWanna talk? 18:16, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Adyniz. What I am really looking for is a better image for Ash's Oshawott, but the images in this thread are too big. Do you know if there are any threads with 1280x720 images of Oshawott? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 01:55, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
No, I do not. In my opinion, Oshawott doesn't need a new header, the current header image is fine. Same goes for Snivy and the rest of Ash's "in-rotation" party. AdynizWanna talk? 03:30, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
Except for Oshawott, I think everyone else's headers are fine. However, in Oshawott's current header, his scalchop is too big. That's why I want to replace it. There is a perfect image in of Oshawott in the BW107 thread, but the images are too big. the great MIKORO (talk to me) 17:47, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
It is a close-up shot, that is why it looks big. Overall, the image is fine for now. AdynizWanna talk? 08:08, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Hey Adyniz, could you please send me the BW106 and BW108 threads from 2ch? the great MIKORO (talk to me) 13:34, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Specific Permissions

Hey Adyniz! Your the first person I'm going to ask because I can't find the answer otherwise. I may be going to write a book and while I'm not planning to use ANY of the info on this site, I need to know if there is any permission to copy and use any photos on this website. I have done research through different resources and found you can copy and use any photos on websites that grant permission to that sort of thing with no cost. Wikipedia is one example, you can copy and use any photos from there. Since Bulbapedia is vary close to a version of Wikipedia, but much better, I thought that the same thing applied to hear as well. That's all I need an answer on. Thanks. - unsigned comment from Nicksamphibians (talkcontribs)

Apologies for replying so late. The thing is, you would fall foul of our license for anything that we are not just using as fair use ourselves. And the stuff that we are using as fair use, most of that you would need a license from Nintendo to use in any great capacity if you are selling that. AdynizWanna talk? 19:20, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Pokemon Merchandise Project

Kind of new to posting on Bulbapedia, so excuse me if I format something incorrectly here. I was wondering if I can help with the merch project. I have been a collector for years and run a website that sells Pokemon Center plush toys and Pokedolls. I feel I can contribute quite a bit about the plush toy brands and lines. I know a little about each figure brand, and have a general knowledge of almost all the areas of merchandise, but my area of expertise is definitely the plush toys (pokemon center, Banpresto, Pokedoll, takaratomy, ect.).

I have referenced Bulbapedia for years now and I would really like to be able to contribute something to it. So please let me know if you think I can be of some use to you guys! :) Pokabubu (talk) 22:18, 27 July 2013 (UTC) Pokabubu

Sure, we can use your help. You can refer to the project page, the respective category, the lists. As for the Plush toys, we have this. I would also suggest you to visit the Pokémon merchandise article. If you think an article needs work or if it is missing, please feel free to work on it. Since you are a new user, you won't be able to create an article at the moment, you can still edit the articles though. So, if you want to start working on a new article, let me know. I can create one for you and then you can do your work. If you have any questions, let me know. Have a nice day! :) AdynizWanna talk? 23:27, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Oh wow, I see that there is quite a bit I can do. There are actually quite a few huge brands not listed - Banpresto (there are probably around a 1,000+ banpresto plush toys), Takaratomy, Pokemon Center, Jakks Pacific, Toy Factory, to name a few. If possible, I would like to start with an article for "Toy Factory", since that would probably be the easiest and I could learn some things while working on it. I do understand that this probably isn't the highest priority for Bulbapedia, so please feel free to take your time when responding. :)Pokabubu (talk) 10:25, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Takara Tomy, Pokémon Center (store) and Jakks Pacific already have articles, feel free to work on them if you want. And here is the Toy Factory article that you asked for, the stage is yours now. Don't forget to use the preview button when working on it and save your edit when you are done with it. One more thing, when you are working on the article and want to avoid the edit conflict, use the {{inuse}} template on top of the page and remove it from the page once you are done with it. Have a nice day :) AdynizWanna talk? 12:52, 23 August 2013 (UTC)


Hi, Adyniz belated id mubarak. I wanna say that I live in India and there was an ad of Pav Bhaji masala in which a boy was wearing a Tee shirt having Pikachu drawn on it I can list this on Pokémon in popular culture--Viv (talk) 09:51, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I am not so sure. It seems minor as compared to the others mentioned in the article. AdynizWanna talk? 10:22, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

But why then can i mention that Pikachu, Snivy , Tepig ,Oshawott Rakhi are available in India I have one too I can show that video of that Rakhi too you, by the way rakhi is a band that sisters tie on their brother's hand on Rakshabandhan can I mention on merchandise. here's the video--Viv (talk) 10:41, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I know about the Rakshabandhan. I think this would be the appropriate place for the Rakhi info. AdynizWanna talk? 10:58, 14 August 2013 (UTC)


Adyniz I'm putting all the Hindi names of Pokémon moves and abilities regularly, and every Black and White episode's Hindi title. By this I thought to put all the Hindi title of every episode till now I have completed EP02 - EP012 and randomly some episodes of diamond and pearl series I need help of any one else to complete this task. By the time side by side all black and white episode titles, places , moves and abilities I will put and side by side as well as earlier episode titles as far as name of move prior to gen v many moves have Hindi already written and rest I'll try too write . So, can you tell me a person speaking Hindi/Urdu to help me out?--Viv (talk) 07:56, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

You should have asked before doing so. We only add those episode titles which have been officially confirmed/actually used in the Hindi dub. As far as I know, they have never translated an episode title before BW. Therefore, the Hindi names of the episodes should not be added to any of the non-BW episode articles. Same goes for the abilities, moves and places. If they have been given a Hindi name in the anime, then it is fine but please do not translate them on your own, since it is against Bulbapedia's policy. I would suggest you to undo the respective edits that you have recently made. AdynizWanna talk? 11:02, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
Adyniz I have NEVER done any translation . Please before saying something like this to some one you should be sure and as far as I know I have been watching the anime from starting and NOT all but some alternate are give dub titles if you want reference see this and I NEVER add false information, have a look I'm giving you link for EP04-EP06 . LISTEN THE TITLES SPOKEN IN HINDI!

EP04-here EP05-here EP06-here

More episodes you can watch there. Forgive me if I was too rude. Thanks for even listening to me!--Viv (talk) 14:35, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

I am positive that they have re-recorded some of the lines for the reruns. I strictly remember that they never used a single Hindi translated title during the original airings of any season prior to BW. I apologize if you were offended, but it is one of my responsibilities to make sure that we have authentic information. Considering this translation was not completely correct and some other translations had minor errors, I had to make sure. Regarding the Hindi episode titles, as I mentioned in the earlier message, if you have it confirmed that a title has been translated in Hindi, feel free to add it but it would be helpful if the source is mentioned in the edit summary, so that it is easier for us to verify. AdynizWanna talk? 17:28, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Common man that edit was just a mistake in listening I did not watch it on net I always watch it on T.V and directly add you see out of 36 black and white telecasted in India I guess 32 titles would have been provided by me and IF one or two listening errors are there I think you should not react like that Remember I am a human and as far as re-recording is concerned I have a real proof for it that is my mind that in the first season almost every episode had a title I can say this because I am watching it from the first episode in the original order , only because I came to the net world late I have not contributed to Pokémon in south Asia from starting--Viv (talk) 09:19, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Suggestion: Strategies

Hello Adyniz, I come to you with a suggestion, a rather ambitious and large one so sit back, grab your tea and get ready to read because it's going to be a long post.


As a frequent and old Pokémon player I regularly find the need to search for the best way to raise my Pokémon, which Pokémon are the best to catch, and after having them, how can I maximize the potential of each and every Pokémon in my team. As you clearly know, there is no information on Bulbapedia (except for some stats, abilities and natures, but nothing indicative of a potential "best" situation) regarding this matter. Therefore, I wish to make a proposition so we can fulfill this niche of players who look to find the best way to make their team the most powerful one, or just to help guide the average player with his playing experience in order to avoid some frustration as to why his Pokémon aren't performing in up top shape. To serve this purpose I'm going to make two suggestions: the first one would be a simple short version of what a possible best strategy could be; and the second one would be a sort of in-depth guide for the training on each individual Pokémon. Now on to the suggestions!

Disclaimer: (should be written and applied in all suggestions)

These builds and strategies are all but mere suggestions to serve as a guide for the average player who may struggle with the use of his Pokémon or simply to allow them to learn more about how to unlock the true potential of each Pokémon. It is not meant for the player to be forced to take this path. The player should choose, by himself, which is the best way to raise his Pokémon.

First Suggestion - Recommended Strategy

Objective - Serves as a quick go-to guide for the overall best strategy for a specific Pokémon.


Spr 4h 149.png
Dragon Flying
Held item:
Bag Leftovers Sprite.png Leftovers
Dragonite Lv.100
Normal Physical
Dragon Physical
Dragon Dance
Dragon Status
Water Physical

EVs and Nature:

EVs: 252 Attack / 4 Speed / 252 Special Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)

These EVs are completely focused on hard hitting targets, with a maximized Attack and Special Attack stats as it will guarantee a clear sweep which will continue to improve with each successful Dragon Dance.

See EV and List of Pokémon by effort value yield for more information on how to raise your Pokémon stats (alternatively it would be a good idea to make a page dedicated just to how to train your Pokémon's EV and how Natures affect your Pokémon, etc etc etc).


The strategy is as simples as follows:

  • Keep using Dragon Dance whenever the opponent opens up a window of opportunity;
  • Hit them straight in the face with whichever move is the best against that Pokémon, otherwise stick to Outrage;
  • Use Extremespeed as a finisher;

Optionally, the use of Earthquake against teams who use Steel, Poison or Fire Pokémon has proven very effective. Roost is also a good move if the player wishes to make the most out of Multiscale.

Second Suggestion - In-depth Guide

Objective - Provide a complete in-depth competitive strategy giving the most important information and explanations about which build to choose for the specific Pokémon. As we know the competitive scene always brings out the best in the meta of every game, so to dedicate a page to strategies of the current metagame could greatly serve and help anyone who is looking for the best of the best.


  • Name: Dragonite
  • Index: 149
  • First Type: Dragon
  • Second Type: Flying
  • Species: Dragon Pokémon
  • Ability: Multiscale or Inner Focus

(tip: a box specific for this idea would be nice, I couldn't find one)

Strategy Name: Physical Attacker
  • Held Item: Haban Berry / Leftovers
  • Abilty: Multiscale
  • Nature: Adamant
  • 204 HP
  • 252 Attack
  • 52 Special Attack
  • Dragon Claw
  • Extremespeed
  • Fire Punch
  • Protect

This is the standard Dragonite set. Dragon Claw is Dragonite's main move, as it gets the STAB boost and is only resisted by Steel-types. Fire Punch provides nice coverage along with Dragon Claw, hitting Abomasnow and Steel-types for super effective damage. However, it should be noted that despite being super effective, Fire Punch won't do over 50% to max HP Metagross. ExtremeSpeed will allow Dragonite to strike first, moving even before all other priority attacks bar Fake Out. Protect is a staple for most Pokemon in VGC, and can also be used in sync with Leftovers to help restore HP each turn.

The 204 HP EVs allow Dragonite to always survive Life Orb Latios's Draco Meteor, and also gives it maximum Leftovers recovery and good bulk. The 52 Speed EVs let Dragonite outrun minimum speed Rotom-A. The rest of the EVs are put into Attack. An Adamant nature allows Dragonite to deal as much damage as possible, while Leftovers is used to restore some HP each turn, which might allow multiple usage of Multiscale. Haban Berry, however, lets Dragonite survive a Dragon Gem Latios's Draco Meteor, which it cannot do with just Multiscale.

As for teammates, Ground-types such as Krookodile can work well as Dragonite is immune to their Earthquake. Scrafty is a handy partner as it has Fake Out to help Dragonite preserve Mutiscale for a turn. Its STAB attacks are also super effective against Abomasnow and Latios, Dragonite's two main counters. Either Politoed or Ninetales can also be used to get rid of opposing sandstorm and hail if needed, as both of these weathers will break Dragonite's Multiscale. Taken from Smogon University (I am aware that we shouldn't provide content from other websites without asking their permission but I don't have the enough experience to write a full on strategy by myself, I merely wanted to use this as an example, I understand if you have to remove this and if I would have to be scolded for putting this here)

Important side note: all of this information should be backed with a link to a page explaining how to evolve your Pokémon to raise their EVs this way, why and what natures affect what stats, what Pokémon to fight against if you want to have the best stats raised, how to catch Pokérus to further your stat evolution, the use of Vitamins in EVs, training with Macho Brace and the remaining factors that can boost the stats of the Pokémon.

Secondary side note: As you can see the difference between this guide and the first guide is that the first guide should provide a more comprehensive and simple way for anyone to build their Pokémon in a specific powerful way, while the second one should be an all-out strategy taking the most important factors into consideration on the current metagame.

Pros and Cons of these suggestions:

Pros - the first suggestion is quick, succinct, easy to read and understandable, every build shouldn't be bigger than that, and the idea is that anyone can easily shortcut it's ways through the menu and quickly understand one of the best builds for Dragonite (in its page). The second suggestion should have a page completely dedicated to it and should serve as a complete in-depth guide of how to build a specific Pokémon. If we display several strategies while backing up that information with each and every VGC (and other important tournaments), this solves the subjective con since we could 100% base ourselves on real strategies used in real life tournaments and place them there for anyone to learn.

Cons - subjectiveness, my idea of "best build" can differ from the next guy, so this can be a problem in the sense that will probably generate a lot of discussion and to ascertain a common "best build" amongst the community could be very hard. This would require a change in each and every Pokémon page to grant a strategy to each one of it, or would require the creation of 600+ pages for in-depth guides in each Pokémon page. Either one of those are obviously time consuming. Another added con is that all of this information is very volatile as it can change from generation to generation with stats/abilities/move updates and new moves coming in to the game, requiring constant maintenance with each generation.

Presented Solutions - create a best strategy contest! This contest should be held weekly with different Pokémons each week, allowing for the community to pitch in their very own version of what the best strategy is while in the meantime allowing anyone who visits Bulbapedia to vote on what the best strategy is. At the end of the week the contest closes and the best strategy is posted on the Pokémon page crediting the user who entered the strategy. This could entice the community in to sharing ideas between them and would definitely bring more people in so they could place their own strategies for everyone to see. This solution could be made on the Bulbapedia page, or have a part of the forum dedicated to it. It could also be applied to any of the two suggestions I made.


I understand that overall this is a very, very hard and ambitious project for the whole Bulbapedia, with new games coming up every year, with new Anime and new Manga out every month, there is a lot of information that needs to be reviewed and constantly updated. Even after all these years the to-do list for Bulbapedia is huge and there's always some things that were left out that could have been done in a better fashion, hence my fear that making this could be a bite bigger than Bulbapedia can chew, and so I am ready to accept the fact that this suggestion will, most possibly, be discarded and forgotten as certainly there are other things waiting to be done and reserved for the future of Bulbapedia. To finish this massive wall of text, I just want to thank you for your patience and attention given in reading all this, I am very sorry that it had to came out this long, and I wish to point out that all I ever wanted was to provide a new perspective, a competitive perspective even, a new way for Bulbapedia to improve and become a better place for everyone. However, I didn't want to do it without having my opinions properly backed up.

I only realized now that I was asking this to the wrong person since you're the deputy editor in chief for the Bulbanews and not actually Bulbagarden... I feel terrible for this mistake, and I'm sorry if I wasted any of your time, I'll copy paste this suggestion to Kogoro, she was the person I meant to send this information in the first place... If you want you can delete this whole section. I'm so sorry. ----EtherealAether (talk) 16:32, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
No, that's alright and I apologize for the very late reply. I discussed it with some of the other staff members. We appreciate your effort but the thing is Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia and the stuff that you have explained above would be rather suitable for a strategy wiki. I have noticed that you have dropped this same message on Kogoro's talk page, she might explain it in a better way. Again, apologies for the late reply.

Hi Adyniz, could you tell me if we can use our bulbapedia account for other sections of BulbaGarden like Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden ƒorums, BulbaNews,Archives etc. ? When i visited these sites i could not log in by my bulbapedia account. SuperPikaPool13 (talk) 09:51, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

You can use the same account on all three wikis (Bulbapedia, Archives and News). In order to do that, you will have to go to your preferences on Bulbapedia (the 'preferences' button on top, in between the 'talk' and 'watchlist' button). There, you will see a link which says "Manage your global account", click on it. You will get a "Login unification complete!" message. After you are done with it, try logging in on the Archives and Bulbanews, it should be working fine, if the account has been merged successfully. You can confirm it by revisiting the "preferences" on any of the Wikis and look for the note below "Global account status: All in order!". It should say "Your account is active on 3 project sites".
As for the forums, you will have to make a separate account. You can use the same Wiki username but that account will not be a part of the global wiki account. Take your time, read it carefully and then proceed. If you have any questions, let me know. AdynizWanna talk? 10:29, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

It has been brought up a couple of times before, if I remember correctly. It would not be a wise idea to add the audio files. Mainly because, unlike images, the audio can easily cause a major copyright infringement issue. AdynizWanna talk? 15:46, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Archives still protected and uploading is locked

Hello. The Achives are still protected due of preparing X & Y games, but they're out already and they should be unprotected sooner or later. I can't upload or edit on Archives because of that, so I must to 1st November before everything will go fine. I takled to Kogoro about unprotecting them, but he's not responding at all. Everyone had talked to him, but nothing happened. Do you have an idea what to do in this situation? Pikachu65 08:42, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Ash's legs error

The dust effect appears to be in front of Ash and the line where his legs are cut off is too straight, so it doesn't seem like part of the dust effect to me. And, as you said, this is the only frame showing the lowest part of Ash's legs, hence why I'm pretty sure it's an error. The animators probably drew only the upper part of Ash's body for that scene, and when adding a shaking effect to the camera, they slipped up and placed the "camera" below the drawing of Ash they had. It's similar to the error in BW124 where the camera is located to the right of the drawing of the grass, and while I can't come up with specific examples, I've already seen errors like this in animation when the camera shakes. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 21:31, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Adyniz, when I opened by contribution's page, along side some contributions I saw a this written ---> current. Why's this? . I have never noticed this before..!?--Viv (talk) 07:59, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

It shows the difference between the particular revision that you chose and the current version of the article. By current version, I mean the most recent revision/edit done on that article. AdynizWanna talk? 08:07, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Merchandise idea

Hey Ady, I was talking to nuva-kal the other day about Tretta and Battrio not having any sections on species articles, and he pointed out the lack of sections for various merchandise. That got me thinking, and after searching through some of the merchandise pages, I got an idea that I want to throw your way.

Searching for merchandise of specific Pokémon is pretty time-consuming as it is now; putting in something like "Piplup figures" will get you a couple pages of merchandise, as well as anime episodes simply featuring Piplup. The toys template helps with the blind searching a bit, but there are still roughly 20 pages for a person to sift through to find what they're looking for. And if they then want to see what books are about Piplup, if there are any, they have to go back to the search engine roulette.

My idea is to make a centralized page for what merchandise there is of, or prominently featuring, a specific Pokémon. List all the various toys, dolls, figures, books and miscellaneous merchandise that's of the Pokémon all together so that people don't have to know exactly what they're looking for before they find it. Then, link to it on the species article (not really sure its own header would be best, but under See Also at the very least). Any thoughts? glikglak 02:00, 13 March 2014 (UTC)


I tried to create an usertag, which can be foundhere. It's a mess, and even i dont use it. So, Can i delete that page? I am not sure about deleting a page like this so i thought i would ask.- SuperPikaPool13 (TALK)"(Contribs) 10:47, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

THe pokemon anime in India has shifted to Hungama TV. Can you upload its logo from this page ??? --PikaTepig999 18:04, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

XY024 still banned

I saw the article of episode XY024 about Skrelp that has been removed from the Turner Broadcasting's official press site, I think it's a minor typo, as you can see, there is a repeat episode XY0005 that has been aired before. Why would they skip this episode in the dub because it's temporary postponed in Japan? I believe they make a major error, it should be aired in June 28th, and episode XY025 will replace it. There's 60% this episode will surely air in the future airings. I'm telling you it's a major ERROR, it's not Turner's fault they had to remove it from the schedule.

Indian Pokerap

Hungama TV has made a new version of Pokerap. You can view it here. Should we add the lyrics of this rap to bulbapedia? We can add it on the List of Hindi Opening themes page, ya aap koi dusri jagha suggest kare waha. --PikaTepig999 11:00, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Adding it after the Hungama version of the first opening in that article should be fine. AdynizWanna talk? 11:34, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay, but wouldn't it be better If we add all the opening themes first and then add the ending themes? --PikaTepig999 04:37, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I did consider that thought, but it would be a bit confusing in my opinion. If we list all the openings first and then a separate section for all the ending songs, we'll have to divide both of the respective sections by the series order separately, which might be redundant. The article looks way too bulky the way it is. So, I think going by the sequential order might work slightly better. I'm open to more suggestions though. AdynizWanna talk? 05:23, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
If the page is getting too long we could make the tables collapsible. Also, why do you think that the video and audio links are unnecessary ? --PikaTepig999 10:32, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I'll have to think about the collapsible tables. As for the videos, it is always preferred to avoid adding links to the unofficial Youtube (or any other website, for that matter) videos unless extremely necessary (e.g.: Glitches). That is the reason why I had to remove them. But I guess I could have been more descriptive in the edit summary, so that's my bad. AdynizWanna talk? 12:23, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Have you decided about the collapsible tables? →PikaTepig999 18:23, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
No, I haven't decided anything yet. The thing is that I'm not a big fan of the show-hide button, mainly because it hides the actual information of the article. So, the suggestion is still on the table but it would be better if there's any alternate way to solve this issue. AdynizWanna talk? 19:07, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, I am adding the lyrics now, then you can decide about the tables afterwards. →PikaTepig999 09:19, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, since you haven't said anything by now I assume that the tables are to be kept as they are. Also, could you please explain your edit summary? What do you mean that you've been asked not to reveal names? I'm just curious. →PIKATEPIG999 17:00, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, the article is fine for now. As for the other question, I got the respective information from an official source. Since they usually have to sign an NDA-esque contract, they are not allowed to say any such thing to a third party until the details in question have been officially announced by the company or until they have been given the permission to say so. Breach of the contract can even cost someone to lose their job. Therefore, they asked me not to reveal any names and to use the information for the wiki-purposes only. Hence, the edit summary. AdynizWanna talk? 18:15, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Umm, could you explain in a little simpler English, please? →PikaTepig999 18:00, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
I contacted some people, who are involved in the production of the Hungama dub, and asked a few questions. They answered them and asked me to not give out the names of the people who answered my questions. AdynizWanna talk? 18:15, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Ohh, means you are not allowed to reveal who gave you the info. Okay thanks for your help, and sorry if I bothered you too much! →PikaTepig999 18:43, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Episode XY029

I checked the TV guide and there was no S on Friend.--JasonL (talk) Never mind I found it.--JasonL (talk)

Pokemon in South Asia article

Hello, I read the Pokémon in South Asia article and i noticed that many of the sections are only focused on India. Would it be possible for you to add some info about Pokemon Games and Merchandise in Pakistan? For other countries, I dont know if any users on Bulbapedia are from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, or Sri Lanka. --→PikaTepig999 08:28, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

I have looked for it, but I don't think there's any official merchandise over here (or I haven't seen it yet). As for the games, it's pretty much the same. An individual have to ask the store staff to order the game for that person, the retailers don't get the supplies in bulk from any official franchise. AdynizWanna talk? 09:29, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Also, I was reading Nachiket Dighe's and Prasad Barve's (Hindi VAs) pages on Wikipedia when I found out that Prasad Barve voiced Ash in the first dub instead of Rahul Sharma. But the source given is that of a facebook page. So do you think it is reliable? PikaTepig999 09:55, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
That is certainly not a reliable source. I'll try to get it confirmed in the coming weeks. AdynizWanna talk? 10:34, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
On Hungama's page someone has added Mewtwo Strikes Back as upcoming movies. Could you confirm it too? →PikaTepig999 10:54, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
It was added by a random (unregistered) user without any citations whatsoever. So, definitely not reliable. Unless there is actually an trailer being shown on the channel. In fact I did ask a question regarding the subject, they said that (as of now) they do not have any update on the Pokemon movies. AdynizWanna talk? 11:16, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
It was removed. Anyway, I haven't seen any trailer on the channel; but I only watch TV when Pokémon airs (due to school and tutions), so I could have missed any trailer if it was being shown. I am thinking about asking Hungama's Facebook page, if there is one. Also, did you confirm about Prasad Barve as Ash's voice actor ?→PikaTepig999 07:04, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Consider it unconfirmed then. Regardless of what other people might say, Hungama doesn't have an official FB page. If you were referring to this one, then it's a fan page with someone pretending to be 'the official guy / in contact with the officials'. Further evidence. As for the last question, not yet. AdynizWanna talk? 09:18, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I said if there is one. I would have liked to watch that movie in Hindi. Anyway I am contacting CNI's page to ask them for voice actors' names (for wiki purposes only, no other purpose.). Hope they will reply. Also, I contacted the Facebook page(The one that says Prasad Barve voiced Ash), they say that some named "Damandeep Singh Baggan" voices Mewoth. PikaTepig999 10:36, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I see, my mistake then. Nupz, they said that they have only recorded the first 52 episodes so far and will be recording some new ones soon *. No word on the rights to other seasons. Also, they mentioned that Turner/CNI/Pogo still have the rights to air BW. Hence, the reruns. AdynizWanna talk? 11:11, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
After showing EP055 they showed reruns of almost all 52 episodes (some were skipped) the whole day on 28 & 29 of July; and the next episodes are currently been being shown, so I'd say that they have dubbed the next episodes. So we will have to wait 80 - 55 = 25 more days (almost a month) till the season ends, then we will know if they broadcast the next season or not. By reading one of the FB links from your earlier comment it seems to me that CN will broadcast Season 15. PikaTepig999 11:51, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
CORRECTION: They showed reruns of all episodes that were dubbed*. --PikaTepig999 09:12, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit war

Hey Adyniz! I just wanted to resolve this problem. I removed some major things on Pokémon in South Asia page, here is the edit I made I made these edit like some users wrote the whole number of episodes which were irregularly shown. They wrote some common things like many fans sent messages to CNI FB pageto start Pokémon Season 15 these are unnecessary information as this is an official article not a guide of each an every article. Some trivia were also so obvious that it needed to be removed, but those all users have again put all that information there please kindly check my edit and if it seems to you that I'm right then please undo the edits made by other users to revert my edit and bring back the page to my edit as it seems appropriate kindly take action--Viv (talk) 06:17, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Apologies if I'm intererrupting, but not all the information you removed was unnecessary, Viv. However I will follow whatever decision Adyniz takes. --PikaTepig999 06:48, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
There. Why?
  • There's no reason to mention the specific times when the show airs, because it is completely pointless unless there is a solid reason to do so. If I did mention it somewhere in the article and haven't removed it yet, let me know.
  • Noting each and every single episode which didn't get aired in order seems unnecessary. There are just way too many out-of-order airings to note, which doesn't make the information noteworthy but makes it less notable in this particular case. It almost seems like a common practice by the channel.
To wrap it up, that particular information is not that significant and it will not affect the article much if we don't go into those specifics. Which is why I have removed the table. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the help but it doesn't seem necessary. I would highly recommend asking for a suggestion on the article's talk page, before you start working on something like that in the future. It is only for your own good, so that all the hard work doesn't go to waste.
  • Also, regarding:
"The episode "Ditto's Mysterious Mansion" was not shown in order by Hungama for unknown reasons. It was shown after "Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden". After "Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden", Hungama directly aired "The Case of the K-9 Caper", according to the dub airing order."
I didn't really get what was going on. It said that EP031 aired after EP051, then it said EP054 aired after EP051. It sounded contradicting and confusing. So, I had to replace it with "Similar to the Cartoon Network airings, viewers noticed some inconsistencies in the airing order", which I believe is a much simpler way to put it.
  • The first trivia, article already notes it. 3rd is based on complete speculation. As for the opening song, have they really stopped airing it? Because I checked the first few episodes and it was still there, but feel free to add it back if it's true. And those errors are really not notable.
And that would be all. If you have any questions regarding it, let me know. AdynizWanna talk? 09:59, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
  1. The theme song was shown only for the first 6-7 episodes.
  2. EP037 (you typed 031) was shown after 051. In the US, 051 was followed by 054, and 052 & 053 were aired after 057. Hence all dubs based on the US version air 052 & 053 after 057. Many people thought they were mistakes in the airing order, so they were adding that to the page. Hence, I added that paragraph. Maybe my bad grammer created confusion.
  3. Pokémon spelled without acute e is a really common error. But spelled as Pokeman is a notable error according to me.
  4. The WTP segment was not shown except for EP052, which was aired after 057. But 052 aired on a Friday (Q August)), so tomorrow (4 August (Monday)) we will know if it has been brought back.
I hope that you understand what I am trying to say. Oh, and by the way, You did not remove the timeslot of BW on Pogo. Are you going to remove it, or should it be kept they way as it is? --PikaTepig999 14:09, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
1. Added it back.
2. I see. Though, I think its less confusing this way.
3. If it occurred in an actual episode, in a movie or say a poster, it would have been worth noting. I'm not saying that it's not an error. It certainly is, an obvious one for that matter. But an error made by the people who probably don't even give a damn about the show isn't really notable for this article.
4. Okay.
Reworded a few things, thanks for the heads up. AdynizWanna talk? 15:01, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Adyniz, and yeah the WTP section is shown now. Confirmed.--Viv (talk) 13:45, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Not a problem. And thanks for the confirmation, the trivia has been reworded to reflect the change. AdynizWanna talk? 15:08, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
