Hi! I have to let you know, please don't make any edits based off of information taken from Serebii. Serebii does not permit any information to be taken from their site.

I've reverted the edits where you explicitly noted Serebii, but can you also explain for me what you based edits like this one on? Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:14, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't know about that Serebii policy. I am sorry. Other my edits based on Serebii and logic. I am noticed that many moves missing 'mirrormove' tag, but have unused 'brightpowder' tag that have same values, that 'mirrormove' tag should have. I decided that it some kind of error or legacy thing so I am basing my edits on it. Other move, that lacking any info about 'mirrormove' are based on Serebii to, so I guess you must rever them too. I am really sorry.

I am trying to learn old craft of book-making and book-binding, so I decided to make my very own Pokedex-like books. I based that book(or better say books, as it end-up being two tomes) on data from Bulbapedia. Now I am gathering data for moves index. Since most of the data was grabbed from Bulbapedia, I felt obligated to help the project in some way to repay :) I noticed the lack of 'mirrormove' and tried to fill empty spaces.

I'd better stop or I can at least change 'brightpowder' to 'mirrormove'?


If you interested, there is several photos of my book-binding process:

You're welcome to change brightpowder to mirrormove. You're right that that's a certain error that we haven't gone through and corrected everywhere. (I did some updates myself—including changing brightpowder—on a number of move pages before, but I never completed the task.)
I will go around and undo those other edits in a while, then. But otherwise, we do appreciate your assistance. ^_^ Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:35, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Actually, I can roll-back unwanted changes by myself, since they are easy to be spotted in my changes history. brightpowder to mirrormove shanges are those that making page lighter for a few bites, while unwanted ones was adding new bites to pages. :) So don't worry, I will fix it soon :) BlackSwan (talk) 01:54, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Done :D BlackSwan (talk) 02:08, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Done with replacing brightpowder to mirrormove for all main games moves. Tommorow I will compile the list of moves missing that tag completely, in case we can do something about it. BlackSwan (talk) 03:35, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

So, Moves missing Mirror Move tag: Electric Terrain, Magnetic Flux, Powder, Eerie Impulse, Aromatic Mist, Fairy Lock, Electrify, Flower_Shield, Freeze-Dry, Parabolic Charge, Ion Deluge, Sticky Web, Rototiller, Snarl

Missing King's Rock tag: Accelerock, Clanging Scales, Core Enforcer, Parabolic Charge
