Editing multiple sections.
Just thought I'd let you know, if you'd like to edit multiple sections of a single page at once, you can hit "edit this page" at the top of the article in order to avoid potentially cluttering the edit history and recent change log with multiple edits. Thanks! Landfish7 05:29, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
Before you go crazy with those, we are not adding those as we are not sure of the validity of the statements the translator claims, as they may just be his own opinions on what the Japanese names may be rather than him actually speaking with the original creators. A former staff member, who is Japanese, even debunked one of his origins at the time. So for now, please don't add them until we know for sure those are the actual origins the original creators intended.--ForceFire 04:39, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Runerigus minimum level
When you edited Runerigus's page, you stated that you moved the minimum level bit to Yamask's page, but you didn't do so yet. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 21:12, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
- "Because Galarian Yamask needs at least 50 HP in order to take the amount of damage required for it to evolve without fainting, it cannot evolve into Runerigus until level 15 at minimum (assuming Yamask has 31 IVs and 240 EVs in HP), as that is the lowest level that it can have the required HP." that's in Yamask's page now. also in my contribs page, Yamask's edit went live first, then Runerigus's. Anzasquiddles (talk) 21:31, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
- EDIT: yea i see what you meant now, i prolly should've published Runerigus's edit first. Anzasquiddles (talk) 21:40, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
- Oh, I see. I just skimmed by it and never noticed you moving that bit to Yamask's page. Now I did notice. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 16:41, 20 April 2022 (UTC)
I don't feel the redirect "Old Verses" is absolutely necessary because of how MediaWiki links work.
[[Old Verse]]s gives Old Verses. --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 18:32, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
Cufant name origin
I changed Cufant's name origin to match the wording used in many other Pokémon name origin sections which split the combination into its parts. Cu, cuprum, and cute make up the first part of the combination, and infant and elephant make up the second part. I feel like it would be more informative and more consistent to word it the way I had it i.e. Cufant may be a combination of Cu (chemical symbol for copper), cuprum (the Latin name for copper from which the symbol is derived), or cute, and elephant or infant. Landfish7 03:32, 14 July 2022 (UTC)
- Ah, in that case i guess it's the better format? Idk, i changed it back because i felt like the new edit was a bit too wordy. Anzasquiddles (talk) 06:15, 14 July 2022 (UTC)
Hey! Just curious, where is Fuecoco depicted with more than two tufts on its head? Landfish7 05:16, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
- Wait maybe I misunderstood what you meant. Landfish7 05:19, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
- i mean it can have more than two tufts on its head, like when it gets excited, as described in the website. Anzasquiddles (talk) 05:26, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Just wanted to say thank you for fixing that edit I made to Snorlax and that I agree with your changes.
Sometimes I wish Bulbapedia had a quick "thank you" button like Wikipedia does. - unsigned comment from Landfish7 (talk • contribs)
- It can be easily implemented with mw:Extension:Thanks --Bfdifan2006 (T/C) 11:04, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
Why do you delete edits that clarify pokemon biology? Grafaiai resembles more of an Aye-Aye than a Loris so if you want to delete stuff delete the section from origins and add it to biology so it's correctly identified as an Aye-Aye. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:12, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
The Aye-Aye is an endangered species, so I don't feel it's right to take away any attention that could be brought to the animal especially when the pokemon was named after it. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:17, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
- Most Pokémon aren't based on just one thing. Eg: aye-ayes aren't poisonous, but the slow loris is. Grafaiai's eyes are very large compared to its head, which is like the loris but unlike the aye-aye (the aye-aye has large eyes but they aren't THAT large, esp compared to the loris eyes). Also, like i said, Grafaiai being based on the aye-aye is already described in the Origin section. The Biology section is where we describe the mon as it looks and behaves in the Pokémon world; we generally don't compare and contrast back and forth between real life species and the Pokémon in the Bio section.
- Also yes, the aye-aye is endangered; but so many other Pokémon are based on endangered species too, eg. Rhyhorn all the way back in Gen 1. Anzasquiddles (talk) 18:22, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
By your own admission the aye-aye should still be in biology because Grafaiai uses his long saliva finger to paint. All I'm asking is to add Aye-Aye along with the loris in biology as it is undeniably a combination of both instead of just a loris. SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:34, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
You don't have to use my way of wording it, but perhaps it could say "resembling a lemur like the Aye-Aye and Loris." SarahSmiley24 (talk) 18:36, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
If you're the one who made the edit on Grafaiai right now I just wanted to say thank you for compromising and hearing me out. Sorry if I came off a little aggressive that wasn't my intention, but thanks again for having this discussion SarahSmiley24 (talk) 19:05, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
While Aye-Ayes are lemurs, I appreciate the specific distinction SarahSmiley24 (talk) 19:11, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
baxcalibur and its evos
I think baxcalibur is first and foremost resembles a kaiju, whether it also resembles concavenator or any other dinosaur not can be an issue of discussion, however concavenator only had a little bump on it's back if we go on like this every reptilian kaiju can be said to be based on a theropod dinosaur arctibax does look like a dinosaur but the crest on the back is still more similar to spinosaurus than concavenator. and tell me how frigibax mostly resembles a concavenator or any dinosaur at all. sometimes the inspiration changes through evolution (jigglypuff and wigglytuff, magikarp and gyarados, or need i mention dragonair dragonite, larvitar pupitar and so many more) sometimes trying too hard to see something in the design has the opposite effect, also not everything has to have a Spanish relation, so there is no need to stick to concavenator, just because it happened to be discovered in Spain. arctibax ok, but the other two? I'm not sure Lphits (talk) 09:42, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
- Has a fin on its back
- The fin is said to regulate temperature
- Has quills or feathers on its wrists
- Was found in Spain
- All of these traits are shared with Frigibax and its evos (all of them have ice fins that can absorb heat, quills/feathers on their wrists, live in Paldea). That they share this many traits with each other means that the connection isn't a mere coincidence. Also lest we forget, a lot of kaiju are also based on dinosaurs in the first place.
- "But Frigibax doesn't look like a dinosaur at all" it's called stylization. Gible doesn't look like a shark either, for example.
- I also would like to remind you to not go overboard with putting pop-culture references in the origin sections. Pokémon is its own thing, first and foremost; referencing random pop culture things esp when they have nothing to do with the designs in question (eg. saying Pawmot is based on Iron Man) doesn't help anyone.
- Anzasquiddles (talk) 09:52, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
i get why it is compared to concavenator, but other dinosaurs (like spinosaurus) also have fins/sails to regulate body temperature and, the fins are more similar to the pokemon
anyway, concavenator it is then. but at least for baxcalibur, i would still put kaiju first (because I don't think someone who sees it first would say: that's a concavenator!) and dinosaur next, it is, after all, a kaiju with some dinosaur (concavenator then) traits. so, it could go like this: it is based on a kaiju blabla and, like it's pre - evolutions, it is also likely to be based on concavenator
haha, i actually don't like the marvel series, but the blue circles on the palm and shooting stuff out of it just makes it suspiciously similar (steel type or not) charizard is based on a dragon but is not a dragon type too also I think is said it was a reference to iron man, not based on iron man given the recent fame of the franchise, it is very much possible
we don't know what the artist had in mind when creating the design, most of the origin articles are guesses and assumptions. they might have put stuff on pokemon for design purposes only, or just thought, let's make it shoot stuff from it's hands like Iron Man.... anyway, with most Pokemon designs, we will probably never know.
absolutely, pokemon is it's own thing, but there are numerous references to other franchises (like Blastoise and venusaur fusing in the series is a reference to DB) Dynamic might be another reference to the Ultraman series as Ultraman is multiplying in size in the exact same fashion as Pokemon do while Dynamaxing. These franchises have the same audience so references are not impossible. Lphits (talk) 10:17, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
- yeah sure the Baxcalibur thing could work Anzasquiddles (talk) 10:21, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
sorry for the auto correct xD Lphits (talk) 10:25, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
nymble and lokix
its a minor thing, but lokix perhaps cannot fly because it's a kamen rider? or simply just to emphasize the jumping/kicking power of its legs they did not give it wings, not necessarily because it is based on a certain species. given its name, shape and that it's an in evolved form: nymble is definitely (or at least most likely) a locust/grasshopper nymph, the species seems irrelevant anyway, my aim was to point out the connection between the name and design more Lphits (talk) 10:41, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
- To be fair i wasn't the one who originally added the meadow hopper inspiration to those pages; i just re-added it back in because i thought it's still relevant. But yeah that's why i included both "nymph" and "meadow grasshopper" on the origin for Nymble; it could be both. Anzasquiddles (talk) 10:47, 13 December 2022 (UTC)
Heya anza, I've noticed recently you've been a bit quick to jump to the undo button when confronted with an edit dispute. In particular, reverting an edit back after someone has reverted you. Remember, this can approach edit warring territory. I'd really consider just talking things out with another user before doing a revert, and try to reach some sort of agreement or compromise, rather than reverting back and forth. I know this can slow down the pace of editing, but it usually results in the agreed upon changes being more pleasant for everyone and makes the editing experience a lot more enjoyable. I know this has been addressed with you before on the Discord server, so I'd really give it some thought. Thanks! Landfish7 04:50, 19 December 2022 (UTC)
- Yeah i apologize, i'll try to be less trigger-happy next time. Anzasquiddles (talk) 08:30, 19 December 2022 (UTC)
Only known Pokémon
Not all Pokémon with signature moves are the only ones capable of learning that move, as some signature moves can be learned by other Pokémon through other means. All Pokémon who are the only ones capable of learning that move have that info stated in their biology section. That's why I included it, because it's interesting info and it's consistent with all other instances of this. Landfish7 14:31, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
- Fair enough, my bad. *shrug* Anzasquiddles (talk) 14:36, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
With it just hitting the 4 month mark since the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, I wanted to take an opportunity to offer a more personal acknowledgment of some of the hard work you've contributed during this incredibly busy period for Bulbapedia. Your work on new Pokémon TCG navigations, locations, and other misc. changes were a huge help in our coverage this go around. Bulbapedia's continued success as a wiki relies on dedicated and passionate editors such as yourself. So again, thank you and keep up the excellent work! --Pokemaster97 22:13, 20 March 2023 (UTC)
