By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Item outlook descriptions

With all due respect, your item outlook descriptions are unnecessary, as images of each item are visible on their respective pages, and describe the items' outlooks much better than any text. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:13, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

I'm adding the descriptions because on mobile or low wifi or bad data the pictures don't load at all sometimes. If you can't get the picture a description is a good way to help someone identify an item they have. please leave them alone. - unsigned comment from AlabasterWitch (talkcontribs)

Your idea is unselfish, but the assumption is that enough many people who use the site have good enough devices to view the images. Also, try to use the preview button to avoid repeated edits, please. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:12, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry! I'm not used to this way of messaging people. It is still a problem though and If it can help (albeit a small amount) people its still worthwhile isn't it? AlabasterWitch (talk) 17:49, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

As I said on my talk page, the problem is more on the device you're using, not the site. So I personally doubt the necessity of these descriptions. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:05, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
          Isn't this platform supposed to be for everyone though? not just those with "great" devices or internet? The main reason I had the idea to do so was because I would run into the issue myself when looking for an item. The pictures wouldn't load for any of the icons or headers and I had trouble getting the right pages time after time. Especially items that have different pages for the anime or simply were too similar to other items AlabasterWitch (talk) 18:28, 20 July 2019 (UTC)


Please do not use Google Translate to translate foreign languages, it is not reliable. Unless you know the language, do not try to translate foreign songs. Thank you.--ForceFire 08:23, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
