Is it considered spam if a sockpuppet goes to a talk page and put something there that led the original user to get blocked in the first place? I was kind of wondering that regarding what this MichaelXD002 user did. PattyMan 15:21, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I've seen sockpuppets' comments being removed in the past.--Den Zen 15:24, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
I just removed a comment of his in evkl's talk page due to that reason. PattyMan 15:32, 30 October 2012 (UTC)


Dennou, did you reset your talk page? Every old message you had is gone. Mikoro (wanna talk?) 14:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC) 10:47, 1 November 12 (UTC)

Yes, I archived it. The old talk page is here but you can't edit it.--Den Zen 16:04, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Okay, just wondering. But anyway, I have a favor to ask. I have become a better Bulbapedia user since my creating rights were taken away, but now I have a bigger goal in mind. I want to become an administrator like you. Right now, my mission is to prove to every administrator that I have what it takes by fixing the incomplete synopses for all articles. I just wanted advice, and I came to the two best administrators I know, you and Jo the Marten. How exactly did you guys get to be administrators? Mikoro (wanna talk?) 01:35, 2 November 2012 (UTC) 21:35, 1 November 12 (UTC)
The link that Jo posted explains it well. And sorry to be blunt, but you have to become a way better and more active editor to be considered to become an admin. Also, please try to avoid posting the same question across multiple pages.--Den Zen 14:24, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Understood. But seriously, you don't have to be a smart Alec. I came to you for help, not insults. And would an inactive editor fix the synopsis for two episodes, add a helping picture for a status effect, add examples to the Pokémon controversy page, AND reprimand other amateur users for violating the rules? I don't think so. I agree I could do more, but I think "inactive" is an overstatement. Mikoro (wanna talk?) 18:16, 2 November 2012 (UTC) 14:15, 2 November 12 (UTC)
Okay, you're actually kinda active. Anyway, I didn't say you'll never become an admin. I meant that you have to become a more diverse editor and make at least hundreds of good/helpful edits. I became an official junior admin after making about 9000 mainspace edits, more than 1000 talk page edits, receiving Golden Eevee and Pikachu, and being a temporary junior admin for several months.--Den Zen 21:22, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! And by the way, if I beat Zenon in Giant Chasm, can I have that Stunfisk? Mikoro (wanna talk?) 17:26, 7 November 2012 (UTC) 12:25, 7 November 12 (UTC)
Yes, and you'll get shocked by it... :P And by the way, remember to use the link templates when possible.--Den Zen 20:25, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Alright, I will. I have already assembled the perfect team to beat Zenon :>. I think what I'll do is name my hero Cilan and breed the Stunfisk. When the egg hatches, I will teach it Sludge Bomb, ThunderShock, Mud Bomb, and Scald. Then I will give it to Jo....... she will love me forever. LOL! Mikoro (wanna talk?) 13:42, 8 November 2012 (UTC) 8:45, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Help in Floccesy Ranch

You recently edited floccesy ranch, removing the cleanup tag i added back when the encounter rates were bad. There was a discussion on the talk page about the encounter rates and how the original ones there were wrong. I put some placeholder ones in, which were then replaced by rarities from the official strategy guide. They have since been replaced by someone who has not bothered to comment on the talk page, and thus you thought the cleanp was resolved when those who havn't read the talk page put values in. Could you help, and reconsider the cleanup tag?----Aquatix (talk to me!) 12:00, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

I can't really help with the encounter rates because I don't have access to the game data and I don't own any guidebooks. I removed the {{cleanup}} tag because the correct tag for that situation is the {{incomplete}} tag, which was already in the article.--Den Zen 13:50, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

John Loeffler

I undid the hiding, and put "according to john loeffler." all admins, leave me alone about this, because i was asked to put this there by John himself. the facebook accuont said that his name was John Loeffler, he lived in New York city and that he is a composer and singer, so that's proof that it's the real one. i do not know how to send links of the facebook conversation to you without revealing my realk name, (Christian Woods is my sudanym, like how Ted Lewis is Ed Paul) but i do know this: John Loeffler is going to try to check on this page within 24 hours, and i want him to see to his satisfaction that i did the edit, just to show that i kept my word, mmkay? side note: You can send Kenji girl after me, but i know that i'm not wrong, and that i'm not operating against pollicy, i swear on it. I'm nearly taking a request and allowing the information to be given out. it's not like john said "But don't tell anyone, it's a big big secret!" or anything, so don't try and make it a secret, mmkay? mmkay? thanks. and admins, i don't want any infractions because of this. i just want it to get out there and to let people see it, just as john asked me to. thanks. Christian Woods Azu! 01:14, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Dragon Rage in BW085

Why not include that error about Dragon Rage being a critical hit? Who determines which aspects of the games are adopted into the anime and which aren't? Because it seems like a helluva lot else does. In fact, we'd have to go back and remove roughly half of all errors ever added because the anime may work under different rules. The anime, which I need not remind, is based on the games. Heck, for all we know, the anime writers intentionally wrote that Electric doesn't affect Rock-types when they made that "error" about a half-dozen times in the first season. We should just go ahead and say that indeed, a Rhyhorn is vulnerable to Electricity in its horn and mouth. It's the same logic (rather, lack thereof). Water beats Fire, Pikachu's Static Ability causes Paralysis, and Dragon Rage does 40 damage. Even something as specific as a Pokémon's level is mentioned several times. Why does one person set the precedent for a piece of noteworthy trivia? I don't care if he or she's an admin, or even if there is a circle of admins who agree with him/her, clearly there are four people who made the effort to note that information. Let's not forget either that whatever precedents the Bulbapedia staff have established are not automatically what the writers intended. Also, you'd think that instead of complaining each time the same reasonable error was added, you guys could add a handy-dandy (hidden message) in the Error section. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 07:10, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

So apparently someone had the sense to put that message in after the fourth person added the error. Clap-clap. Here's another problem: the writer says that it's because Cilan uses a "completely different term"? I'm sorry, maybe he said something else in Farsi, but in English he said it "looks like a critical hit!" Come on. I don't even need to point out how this person's definition of "completely different" is laughable. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 07:18, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Eh, the English version is just a dub. In the original Japanese version, he just said "Kibago hit the target" (this can be mentioned in the Dub edits section). Also, Dragon Rage obviously works differently in the anime than it does in the games, because there are no HPs (and levels were quickly retconned to not exist). Or do you think that Gary's Golem had less than 40 HP? If you still disagree, you should contact Kenji-girl.--Den Zen 14:09, 16 November 2012 (UTC)


There is a user named Marvin Gaye (it is in all caps) on here who is also a singer from the pre-80's. PattyMan 23:42, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Since Marvin Gaye is dead, the user isn't really impersonating him and therefore isn't technically breaking the username policy. Also, he's most likely one of those users who will never make any edits.--Den Zen 23:58, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
At least I pointed it out. PattyMan 16:33, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not bad to be cautious :).--Den Zen 16:53, 18 November 2012 (UTC)


I did not assume Escavalier had Twineedle, I said it because Serebii himself said that it was used and that's usually a pretty good confirmation considering his status. Playerking95 (talk) 15:26, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Serebii should never be used as a source (you've been told it before), and he makes lots of move errors in his Character Bios because he assumes most moves he adds.--Den Zen 15:58, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for that fix

I noticed you fixed the redlinks in my pokémon subpage. I should have known, but I am a mere beginner when it comes to templates; had to use a sample, but what I used for a reference never had a nickname parameter. Hopefully I'll remember that when I add more Pokémon to that page. Berrenta (talk) 19:47, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Since you can apparently use Japanese...

Do you think you can translate some of this? (or just put in the characters, because it's pretty late here so I am low on time and I wouldn't rather have enough time to type). These are only missing Japanese names (though some have just Japanese names without these being translated). Marked +-+-+ (talk) 22:41, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

I added everything I could.--Den Zen 23:22, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Too large?

For a while now, I was looking after the Poké online games article, as no one seemed to update it. It is still incomplete (needs info on a recently released game, etc.). Just now, I noticed something: it surpasses the Décor article, which has an oversize notice, by around 12k bytes, yet the former has neither an oversize notice nor an indication of suggesting separate pages. Also, I plan on incorporating some trophy tables that are in the works, which would make the article larger. Do you think there should be subpages for trophies and/or pre-revamp games? I asked on the article's talkpage and did not get a response yet. Berrenta (talk) 18:46, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

The Décor article has the oversized and merge tags because it has so many templates that some of them can't even be seen. The Poké games has almost zero templates so we don't have to split it and you can add the tables there when they are ready.--Den Zen 19:24, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, just wondering. Thanks. Berrenta (talk) 19:44, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Conquest and Cards

Were you able to double check everything from conquest already? I saw you add some things to a few pages. (On a side note, I love how observant and ambitious you are.) MaverickNate 15:02, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. I didn't check ones that don't seem like TCG Abilities/attacks such as "One-Eyed Dragon" but I guess I'll check them all later today.--Den Zen 15:27, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I also did not know what to do for Gura Gura Punch. MaverickNate 20:57, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, "Gura Gura" is hard to translate directly, but I think "Wobbly" works fine.--Den Zen 21:14, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Making edits better for beginners

I am new and would like some advice on making better edits to this site (Icestar649 (talk) 00:08, 20 December 2012 (UTC))

Pretty much what Crystal said. Most importantly, read the Manual of style very well and add a period/question mark/exclamation mark after every sentence. Also, you could observe what kind of edits experienced users make.--Den Zen 14:23, 20 December 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for the help. (Icestar649 (talk) 21:30, 20 December 2012 (UTC))

Fantasy Serperior

Out of sheer curiosity: where did you find out about this fantasy/flashback Serperior in BW109? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:53, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
PS. My theory is that that new girl Trainer is dreaming about getting a Serperior, so maybe she's going to choose Snivy as her starter.

It's seen on this preview.--Den Zen 14:58, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Now that I see it, I don't think she really wants a Serperior, after all... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:07, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Jessie's Frillish/James's Amooguss

May I help you by adding a bit more information in the articles that you created about Jessie's Frillish and James's Amooguss?Rioxemperte (talk) 14:51, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

You can't edit those pages yourself because you're not autoconfirmed, but you can post the text you want to add below here.--Den Zen 15:05, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok.I will put them here a bit later,but how can I be in the autoconfirmed?Rioxemperte (talk) 15:44, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
It's explained on the page that I and you yourself linked... Basically, you have to make a secret amount of edits to mainspace articles (Ash Ketchum, Tackle (move), Kanto, etc.) and your account must have existed for a secret amount of time.--Den Zen 15:56, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Understood.Now as for Frillish and Amoonguss I just wanted to add in Frillish the move section,because it knows BubbleBeam,Shadow Ball.Rioxemperte (talk) 00:35, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Frillish's moves are already there, but they are hidden with <!-- and --> because we don't know in which episode she will use them for the first time (provided that I haven't missed any previews).--Den Zen 10:39, 27 December 2012 (UTC)


I see you just reverted me, its OK, but which page should I place it then??

(Undo revision 1822185 by Latias1290 (talk) wrong page)

I mean, to me, it seemed good...?- unsigned comment from Latias1290 (talkcontribs)

Well duh, you added game!Barry's information to anime!Barry's page. And that information is already in the former one in form of quotes.--Den Zen 16:16, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

File rename

Time ago I added a image in the Archives (File:N anime.png).As it is a screenshoot from BW110 I wanted you to change it's name in BW110.png , if you can ?カイオーガバージルみずタイプ 16:43, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, but I'm just a regular user over there; you have to ask somebody who's a staff member there. And your signature must reflect your username somehow, by the way.--Den Zen 16:53, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok,I'll ask another user.Thank you for saying that.カイオーガバージルみずタイプ 17:02, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Palpitoad currently doesn't know any physical moves.

Stop deleting my edit on Ash's Palpitoad triva section ,it is 100% true it came from reliable sources and anyone who watch the show, read the page, clicked on the links in the Moves used section and read those pages too they would see that Palpitoad has uesed 3 special moves 1 status moves and NO physical moves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

--Doddman (talk) 00:16, 9 January 2013 (UTC)


Hey,I did a page about N's anime counterpart,in case it will be necessary.Take a look there and add what you think it's important.As for the image I couldn't find an about his reshiram. Riox*** 17:35, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

I made several edits to your page in case it gets mainspaced. I hid some information that doesn't happen in his debut episode or is unconfirmed. In future, remember to always use link templates and put spaces after dots and commas; the way you write hurts everyone's eyes.--Den Zen 18:08, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for that. Riox*** 20:02, 13 January 2013 (UTC)


I respect your adminship and all, but I am not really sure what you did here was appropriate:

04:15, January 5, 2013‎ Dennou Zenshi (Talk | contribs)‎ m . . (18,557 bytes) (0)‎ . . (Protected "Marlon": Counter-productive edit warring (‎[edit=sysop] (expires 11:15, 19 January 2013 (UTC)) ‎[move=sysop] (indefinite)))

I only counted 1 revert; I wouldn't quite call that an edit war. Again, I'm not trying to have authority over a higher rank user like you, I just don't see why you had to protect that page for 2 weeks. サトシ101 (talk) 20:37, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

I protected it for 2 weeks because it's usually the longest time it takes for KG to get VAs. And yeah, I should have used "Speculation crackdown" or something else instead. Also, now I actually think I shouldn't have protected it fully just because the VA speculation.--Den Zen 21:42, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

They're here!

Now that BW109 is officially out, could you move your "sub-articles" of Team Rocket's new Pokémon into real articles? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:59, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I think they need a short history section first. I haven't seen the episode yet so I can't write it.--Den Zen 13:08, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
I added some history in them based on the images I could find. Hope it's now good enough for cualifying them as articles. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:23, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Charizard's Unova Appearence

Why reason is there to wait? It's obvious he's gonna appear in the series, so I just figured to put some information down. --Firered16 (talk) 18:43, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

It's our policy that we only mention human characters' future appearances on their pages, not Pokémon's. I don't know why though.--Den Zen 18:48, 17 January 2013 (UTC)


Hey,I saw in the upcoming anime in bulbanews, that the PK26 wasn't created.May I create it? Riox*** 23:23, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

You mean PK25... It has been already created.--Den Zen 10:34, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh, yes.I didn't see it.I want to help me by something, becase I don't know how to do it.I want to have one like this that is hidden here,(I let it hidden because I couldn't make it as a link), in my userpage but with other pokemon.Can you help me? Riox*** 13:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Do you mean something like this?

Yes,like that.But when I put it in my userpage, the result isn't same as the Iris's, there are only letters and the pokemon images.Riox*** 14:20, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Really? When I tested it on your userpage a moment ago, it worked normally and had colors as well. If you mean that you want it to link to future Pokémon pages such as User:Riox-Ibui/Riox's Togetic, replace link=no with link=User:Riox-Ibui/Riox's Togetic and so on.--Den Zen 14:37, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't work again.Can you put it in my userpage please? Riox*** 14:42, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
It's there now. Looks like it works only when you when you copy the code from the editing box by clicking "[edit]".--Den Zen 14:59, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you a lot Dennou.Riox*** 15:03, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I need to ask you for one more thing.I want to have in my userpage a image of a zorua that I found in google.Can you tell me how to put it there? Riox*** 21:26, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
Just copy & paste the link of the picture on your userpage. For example, makes Musharna's DW image appear if I removed hidden nowiki marks. However, you can't use such pictures in TrainerPoké and InactivePoké and some other templates. Also, the image might not appear if it's too large.--Den Zen 22:13, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok. I want to ask you also for something else but not here, can I contact you by e-mail? Riox*** 23:15, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
I normally don't let other users to email me to avoid spam, but I changed my settings temporarily so that you can send me an e-mail.--Den Zen 08:37, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Where can I find your e-mail? Riox*** 09:56, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Here. You can also find the link from the toolbox on the left side of every user's userpage and talkpage.--Den Zen 10:10, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
I sent it. Riox*** 10:36, 26 January 2013 (UTC)


Please tell me 6 steel type pokemon that are your favorites.I need them for the league. Riox*** 10:44, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Well, Aggron is my favorite. The others would be Bisharp, Scizor, Magnezone, Empoleon and Mawile.--Den Zen 11:11, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok then. Riox*** 11:22, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey ,I want your opinion about the champion.I'm sendin by e-mail to you some names and tell me which one fits for this post.Riox*** 12:22, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
It's finished.It has still to be edited.Take a look here, and add what you think it's missing.Riox*** 15:17, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
First, remember our userspace policy. I'd remove Japanese names or replace them with i saktëwhoops, correct ones. And you're adding {{party}} templates later, right?--Den Zen 15:44, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok.Yes I will make templates like that for every user there.Riox*** 15:55, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Dennou, if you want go there and make your own, ok? Riox*** 19:00, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I prefer making mine myself. However, you must make at least two mainspace edits before anyone can edit your page due to the userspace policy.--Den Zen 19:32, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok then.Yes I know that.Make it under the champion section, with a headline Trainers , and then in bold Elite Four.And please can you put there the template of one like this that is hidden right here? ?I don't know how to do it.You just send me the templates of this and I will make it under the characterstics of this page.Riox*** 20:39, 27 January 2013 (UTC)


This may come a little late, but congratulations for your promotion! In case you are able to do "advanced stuff" now, could you do a little service for me? The image for BW108 has been protected, and has remained unchanged for weeks, even though the episode aired ages ago. Could you please update the image without the text or/and unprotect the page so that anyone could update it? In case you are unable to do that, I'm sorry I bothered you. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:50, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

It's already been uploaded. Mediawiki is just taking its time to update itself. either that or clear you cache.--ForceFire 07:58, 31 January 2013 (UTC)


Take a look in my userpage,please.I made a tag template party there.Add or remove what you want. Riox*** 22:27, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

I changed Aggron's moves since they were horrible (so were Samurott's but I didn't want to change them).--Den Zen 23:14, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

If you want you can change also Samurott's moves.And can you make another tag template party with 6 pokemon 3.Put there three of you favorites.Riox*** 23:47, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Done. Honestly, I can't stand dumb movesets at all. And by the way, those tag templates should be the last things on your userpage(s) where other users, including me, are associated. Just so that you don't get in trouble again.--Den Zen 12:12, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok,then.Thank you for saying that.Riox*** 15:38, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
And I wanted to ask you.Why all Virgil's eeveelutions are male?Just wanted to know it. Riox*** 21:25, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
This is the edit summary (which you can find from the page history) by Gohan5: "In his debut, Virgil mentioned that Eevee was the only female among Team Eevee".--Den Zen 21:39, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Talk Policy

You removed my edit to a talk page as a breach of talk policy. Having taken another read through of the talk page policy, I am a little confused how suggesting trivia is against it? I was wondering if perhaps you could explain it to me, as it was my first edit on this particular wiki. Kind regards. Yleron (talk) 11:58, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

We don't have trivia that suggest which moves are good for certain Pokémon, because they are often subjective. For instance, Aerial Ace is considered to be superior to Wing Attack since it has better accuracy.--Den Zen 12:12, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
I understand, but I thought that pointing out such a specific synergy for a Pokemon that normally wouldn't learn the move (Scizor) would be worth noting. Thanks for the clarification. Yleron (talk) 12:28, 6 February 2013 (UTC)


Hey, I saw this [1] in serebii. What do you think? May it be a confirmed episode? Riox*** 01:16, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm pretty certain that it's fake, considering there was no official confirmation, and it was posted by a banned user in a now locked thread nonetheless. Unless the episode is provided by a reliable source (which Serebii or his forums are not), assume it unconfirmed. --Pokemaster97 01:30, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok.Thank you for the answer. Riox*** 01:32, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I have another question.I created the page about Ellie in my userpage.When the episode airs should I mainspace it?Riox*** 19:15, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it looks pretty good already so you can move it once the episode has aired.--Den Zen 19:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Hey , but most probably I won't get into bulbepdia on thursday due to school. May you mainspace it for me, or is an action that is allowed only for the page creator, cuz I don't know?Is there any page here to show how to mainspace it?Riox*** 19:54, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Any autoconfirmed user can move it, but I'm also in school when the episode airs. FinnishPokéFan92 and Playerking95 are often online when episodes air, so you can ask them to move the page. You can move pages by clicking the link "move" on the top of every (non move-protected) page, next to "user page", "discussion", "edit this page" and "history" links. Then change "User" to "(Main)" from the "To new title" section and remove the "Riox-Ibui/" from the name and click "move page". And one more thing: your infobox has カスミ (Kasumi) as your Japanese name. The correct one, Ibui, would be イブイ.--Den Zen 20:13, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok.I'll ask one of them. Yes I understood and I'll change that kasumi.Thanks. Riox*** 20:21, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Gen 6

Hi.In pokemon mythology(noticias) section I saw new about Sylveon's type.It said that a new type, light, will be introduced.So I created this in my userpage.Take a look and change what you think is in need of. Riox*** 22:51, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Could you please provide a link to the article (and section) in question that states Sylveon will have a "Light-type"? --Pokemaster97 23:00, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
[[2]] Here it is Pokemaster.Below the eeveelutions image is the news.Riox*** 23:18, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
That website appears to be a fansite, which should not be used as sources. Please don't create userspace pages about subjects that have not been confirmed, or does not have enough evidence to be confirmed, otherwise it's just speculation. I'm deleting the page until more evidence is revealed by official sources. --Pokemaster97 23:48, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi DZ. Do you know the name of a file like this Ani593MS.png, but to be shiny ? Riox*** 12:35, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
There's no such file. We have shiny menusprites (that are manually made by users) only for Pokémon that need it in mainspace articles, such as Nature Preserve Haxorus. Because uploading images for your own userpages isn't allowed, you have to stick to the regular menusprite.--Den Zen 12:46, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Ash's Charizard says Charizard will appear so why did you delete it? Thanks.- unsigned comment from Thenmark2 (talkcontribs)

We don't add future appearances on Pokémon's pages. As an old user, you should know it along with making a new talk page section and signing your comments.--Den Zen 14:11, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Re:Your edits

I'm really sorry about what I did. I understand I shouldn't start edit warring, it's one of the things I hate most in wikis. And banning is the last thing I ever want to get. Even with this forced preview, I am in a sort of "restricted editing" mode. So sorry for everything. I promise I will try to change my manners for the better. See you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:28, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit on Banette's page

With all due respect, I thought that trivia of Banette fainting was worth including since that was the idea I was going for (it had no energy left to continue fighting). --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 19:11, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Okay sorry, I thought you meant that it is an error. Nevertheless, pointing out the sprite animation is unnotable.--Den Zen 19:26, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Matthew Charles' Return to the Pokemon Dub

Excuse me, but I just wanted to say I think it's notable that Matt Charles is back. Sure he only played Sid in the 4Kids dub, but he's back now and he was a prominent 4Kids dub VA in other shows like Marc Thompson, Dan Green, and others. I'm personally very glad he's back and it brought a smile on my face to see him return.- unsigned comment from Joshellwu (talkcontribs)

It would be notable if he used to voice a major character or many minor characters in Pokémon; it can't really be said he "returned" when he voiced only one one-off character. And this is a Pokémon wiki so it doesn't matter if he voices important characters in other shows.--Den Zen 22:33, 24 February 2013 (UTC)


In case you're wondering why I share my IP with another user, I forgot my password to that account. YoshiDino90

Quick Question

I see how Forretress' trivia was unnotable even though characters in the anime don't usually get anything other than standard Poké Balls. In my defense it was inspired by the first trivia point in Ash's Totodile's Trivia Section. So I'm just honestly wondering why isn't that unnotable as well? AeroWind (talk) 19:39, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

It's more notable because Ash is the main character and he has about three times more Pokémon than Brock. Also, pieces of trivia that say "one of the few" are generally unnotable while the Totodile trivia says he's the only one in something.--Den Zen 19:46, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Understood. Thank you. AeroWind (talk) 19:49, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Reverted edit

Hello. I know this is a bit late, but on March 4, you reverted my edit here [3] because "cheating-related things aren't notable". I believe they are. There is an entire article on cheating, in fact, there are five! (Category:Cheating) Hacking is also repeatedly mentioned here, and here. That's just what I remember, I'm sure there's a lot more references to cheating/hacking. Apparently, cheating is notable here. Pokegen master (talk) 20:19, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, things done by cheating are notable only if they cause something special. Making Pokémon obey you without Badges doesn't cause anything special to happen.--Den Zen 21:06, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
I just found another article here. If getting Hoenn-exclusive items in Kanto games(even though they're useless) is notable, then shouldn't making Pokémon that weren't caught by you obey without badges be as well? Pokegen master (talk) 21:49, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
It is noteworthy that RS Key Items are programmed into FRLG. The obeying thing is more akin to saying in every Pokémon article that "this Pokémon can have any move or Ability by hacking".--Den Zen 23:26, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok, you make a good point. I concede. Pokegen master (talk) 00:35, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Templates initial letter

Just because they do not need to be uppercase, it doesn't make it incorrect. In fact, I started doing it because that's where the templates are located to begin with. SatoMew 00:24, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, it's not wrong or anything, just saying because adding a uppercase letter takes a little more time and basically everyone uses the lowercase.--Den Zen 00:40, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

The "official" answer is here. Also, I'm sure you won't become an admin if you keep using that kind of language. Ash Ketchum is protected from new users because it's an important page and is often vandalized or is edited poorly.

May's fifth starter

I think the trivia was referring to Munchlax (PMD and Ranger). But we don't consider Munchlax a starter anymore, so you were right to change it. I just thought I'd answer your edit summary. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 17:34, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

I was thinking that too, but Skitty is also a starter in PMD and he said that four of them are starters in Generation I...--Den Zen 17:52, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

oops thanks ^^;

thanks for fixing my trivia on the May (anime) article. I'm suffering from a double ear infection, with a headache from it. And the Antibiotics are causing me to have Insomia. I was up close to 30 hours when I added that Trivia.

I think at some point I got May and Dawn fused since I was going between their and Iris articles to check on their Pokemon teams for starters.

Anyways, thanks again. Luckily I finally got some sleep so hopefully brain dead moments like that doesn't happen again. Yamitora1 (talk) 04:47, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

But he doesn't own Butterfree anymore?

I was only counting the only ones he currently owns. It used to include Charizard until it learned Wing Attack. AeroWind (talk) 08:21, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

But Ash still owned Butterfree and he is still considered as "Ash's Pokémon". Also, the trivia was kind of unnotable in the first place.--Den Zen 08:30, 21 March 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for catching my mistake on Pidgeotto. To be honest, I'm rather frazzled and distracted by the sudden interest in the TCG move errors page. Our database is no where near ready to tackle that page fully and accurately, and I'm just kind of disappointed no one came to talk to me about my plans for that page before doing it. (There are 3 tasks I wanted to have finished before that move error page was even considered, since they would make that undertaking so much easier.) Anyway, that's not at all your fault...I just appreciate your help in handling some of the debris that is falling because of the work on that page. MaverickNate 17:29, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Pokemon shipwrek

In the Hindi dub instead of "Lataak ki Rassi" {Vine Whip} they by mistakenly called it "Dhaga chodo" which literally means release thread.So I am not objecting you as you are a Senior Administrator but as I know Hindi that move was said wrong. So I think that your edit should be reverted as I gave the correct information and I am telling you that after that in NO Hindi dub Vine Whip was called "Dhaga Chodo" from then it was always called "Lataak ki rassi" so I think that was a dub mistake because not before not afterwards not ever it was called dhaga chodo but I am NOT objecting you but I think you should one more time think over it. Thanking You Yours faithfully --Viv (talk) 11:20, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Pokémon Adventures Abilities

Where did you get the information about the Abilities of the Pokémon belonging to the non-main characters from? PattyMan 21:25, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

From this page; it's the official Pokémon Special website. Clicking the katakana characters shows you Pokémon whose names start with that character.--Den Zen 21:31, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Speaking of Abilities, on the page itself, I wanted to write about how their game mechanics differ from the anime ones such as the ones that do not activate despite meeting the requirements such as Sand Stream, but I don't know how to word it. Also, no one responded to my topic about Cameron's Ferrothorn having the Iron Barbs Ability in BW103's talk page. PattyMan 03:56, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure how to word it either. There can be many reasons why we didn't see anything: 1) the Ability activated, but it simply wasn't seen 2) it's required that you touch the barbs to take damage 3) Ferrothorn has a new Ability or even no Ability at all.--Den Zen 09:01, 25 March 2013 (UTC)


On the Pokemon Wiki, there has been this user who has been stealing content from Bulbapedia. Per what it says on the Frequently asked questions, it states I should tell a staff member. The user who goes by the name of Blugo34 is the one who has been doing this, mostly taking the animated .pngs of moves. He has taken a lot, so I'll just list all of them below.

Along with that, there are a few other images that I'm not sure whether they would fall under plagiarism.

I may have got a few of the Xatu images on Bulbapedia mixed up. NOBODY (talk) 22:35, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

May and Swablu

Hey, Yesterday I edited May's page. I added Swablu to the pokémon May befriended (This happened in True Blue Swablu). Today I saw you deleted it, why did you do that? I know this looks like an angry post, but it really isn't. I just want to know the reason for you deleting that edit. Also, I know I edited it a lot of times, but that was because I didn't know of the existence of the preview button, and I apologize for that. Troock (talk) 16:19, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

You didn't read my edit summary, did you? You weren't the first person who tried to add it. This is the Head of Anime's explanation when she removed Swablu one time: "Keep in mind that main characters make friends with a lot of Pokemon. Manaphy is the only acception <sic> here because the bond was much deeper."--Den Zen 16:29, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks, I understand. And sorry, I didnt read your edit summary, where can I find edit summary's? Troock (talk) 17:11, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Edit summaries are optional, but there are many ways to see them such as recent changes and history pages (which you can find next to "edit this page" link).--Den Zen 17:19, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Base stat total of 479 Category deletion

I'm confused about why you deleted the Category "Pokémon with a base stat total of 479", Skuntank has a base stat total of 479, so currently it's a wanted page. -EVsandIVsaurs 12:58, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

The category was unused when I deleted it because a user had changed Skuntank's Speed stat from 84 to 85 without anybody noticing.--Den Zen 14:26, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Red link question

I noticed yesterday while I was removing several red links from the Special:WantedPages section that the top requested pages... were not that requested. As in the World Trainer class being linked to on 167 pages despite the fact that almost all of those pages don't have that text anywhere on the page. Any idea why this error occurs? Frozen Fennec 15:19, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Yes they have, in the {{TrainerNav}} template, when you fully open it.--Den Zen 15:34, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Cloyster shell

Even if it is a facsimile shell, the image is a good addition to the trivia section -- the fact that they make fake cloyster shells is interesting trivia in itself. I will simply note that the shell could be a fake as it is never actually confirmed that it came from a real cloyster.- unsigned comment from Qprime (talkcontribs)

I saw the preview myself, and this appears in a scene in the preview. I've since looked at the prior episode and see it's the Light Stone that N has. CycloneGU (talk) 00:24, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Synopses shouldn't be written until the episode has aired.--Den Zen 00:29, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
"Future episode - This article is about an episode of the Pokémon anime that has not yet aired anywhere in the world. As such, it is a reflection of what is currently known about the episode, rather than coverage of the episode as a whole."
Last I checked, Pikachu becoming possessed (again) is "something known about the episode". I see no rule saying it can't be included. If such bits are not to be added until it has aired, then the bit at the top should say that specifically.
As for the poorly written bit, why not improve it rather than remove it? CycloneGU (talk) 00:32, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Not sure if you're replying to this, I'm standing by waiting. Just want to know this and I'll be off, I have other things to do as well. CycloneGU (talk) 00:49, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Synopsis is "a brief or condensed statement giving a general view of some subject. " or "a brief summary of the plot of a novel, motion picture, play, etc.", while you just added two random things about the episode, with one of them being speculative.--Den Zen 10:04, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Three things, actually: 1. Pikachu becomes possessed; 2. Pikachu attacks Ash; 3. N still has and holds up at one point the Light Ball. Nothing of speculation there. However, if you judge it not enough for that section, I am powerless to say otherwise, obviously. Still not the spirit of a true Wiki, but that's just my opinion. CycloneGU (talk) 15:05, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Still, what you wrote wasn't a synopsis, just random things. The only kind of synopsis that can be added to future episode articles is one that is translated from an episode summary from a Japanese website or magazine. It's a rule. Also, I have never seen any wiki to write what happens in a movie/episode trailer/preview. In fact; the "truest" wiki, Wikipedia, has very strict rules about editing future movie pages.--Den Zen 15:44, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I am familiar with Wikipedia (I call it the "original Wiki"). However, I took the header on the page as an OK to add what I added. Clearly I misunderstood. CycloneGU (talk) 05:07, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Preview stuff

I already spoke to him about using the preview button, then writes this on my talk page. After explaining to him about writing down the information on an external device first, he continues to not use the preview button as seen on this page. PattyMan 18:03, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, just passing through.
I have to admit I can sometimes be guilty of letting a mistake slip through even when previewing, and it's not until the edit goes live that I notice the mistake. In other cases, I realize minutes after saving that I made a mistake, or think I should rewrite something. Things like that can happen. I've actually been "instructed" on the Preview button, which as a Wikipedia editor myself I already know about (and yes, what I described happens to me there as well). Sometimes it's not necessary to instruct someone of something like that. If it becomes a consistent pattern, better to find out the reason than assume they don't know what tools exist.

Missing info

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that there is some information missing from [page]. Kouki Saitou also illustrated the Raichu 2010 card #33/90 (I don't think this card even has a page!) I think this Raichu was from this [set], but I'm not positive. I hope you are able to fix this slight mistake.


Emitewiki2 (talk) 02:32, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Movetcg template

I'd like to see an example page. I have a lot more ideas that I wanted to see represented through this template than I think you prepared for. I'd like to work with you with this to make sure it is done completely correctly. MaverickNate 21:34, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

I already made this. Feel free to tell what other things it should represent.--Den Zen 21:55, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
My vision goes as follows
  • I wanted then to be designed more like Unown and the others, with the sections labeled "Attacks" (For all the typical appearances), "Pokémon Powers" (for things like Raindance, "Poké-Bodies" (can't thin of an example right now, "Poké-Powers" (Raindance again on Feraligatr Prime), "Abilities" (Transform), "Trainer cards" (for Flash and Recycle)... and maybe "altered forms(?)" for things like Super Confusion?
  • All of these sections would then have appropriate columns, because cost and damage aren't appropriate for things like abilities
  • Things should be sortable. Not sure how many of them yet... but at least MS and card(name).
  • Definitely chronological order (but that was probably just because you were pulling examples).
  • I'd like to see expansion information in here somehow, but I'm not quite sure how, because I know it can get quite out of hand...maybe just initial release? Yeah. That sounds fine. but, instead of all of it being in one continuous row, maybe the English release could be on the equivalent of enset, enrarity, and ennum and the Japanese release could be on the equivalent enset2, enrarity2, and ennum2.
I think all together this gives us as columns to be MS (except for with the Trainer Card section), Cardname (this contains the link, but does not have the page name), Initial Release (with the six unlabeled minisections of enset, enrarity, ennum, jpset, jprarity, jpnum), Localized As (which will have the English attack name, essentially what your notes section is doing for Hop, but more straightforward. Should be blank if the card is Japanese only), Cost (only for attacks), Damage (only for attacks), Effect (your card text section). Any notes that are necessary, I would like them to be represented similar to how things are here, with 1 asterisk meaning 1 note, 2 meaning the second note, and whatnot.
That's all I have to say initially... MaverickNate 23:47, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
Now the example page has examples of pretty much everything I can think of. It's not sortable yet, though. Also, maybe the entries should be colored according to the card's type, as the attack's type is the same as the card's type.--Den Zen 16:57, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
I'd like the card type coloring better. Okay, now, lots of progress has been made. There are just a few more details that I'd like to bring out.
  • Currently, we have the overarching opening of the table as the column names. I would love if it was switched to be the individual headers (Attack, Power, Body, Ability) with the column names below each section, with the overarching header of the template to be the attack/ability game name. That way each of the separate section can have their own different column headers, to make more room for the ones that need it. Powers/Bodies/Abilities/Trainer card have a lot of text for their effects, and having Cost and damage there just takes up space and makes the table unnecessarily longer.
  • The section names to be renamed as "As an Attack", "As a Pokémon Power", etc.
  • Card type should probably be a column (named "Type"). That way the color of the blanks in the row an be the type color.
  • I like the white section backgrounds of Kyurem more. I would love this template to do that too.
  • I'd like the English part and the Japanese part of the initial release section to each be exactly half of the height of each row. Essentially, equal height.
  • Japanese cards should have N/A in their Localized As box.
  • I'd honestly like to get rid of the "the move cannot be legitimately learned by this Pokémon in the games." note. This section is supposed to be detailing the move as it appears in the TCG, and not the Pokémon that learn the move. If people want that information, they can read the cards' origin sections. Also, it helps with the following point, which having only one note makes it better. Also, with moves like Thunder Jolt, having that note after every single card but Pikachu is a bit annoying.
  • Notes should be merged into Localized As with the two symbols right after the name (or N/A), so Safeguard* is how it would look.
  • This template will also hopefully be used for things like Conquest Abilities, and possibly Warrior Skills, and definitely moves only from Smash, Mystery Dungeon, and XD Gale of Darkness, so if that were to change anything in the template...
That's all I can think of now. MaverickNate 22:51, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
One more thing. Forget my "altered forms" note earlier. that could get out of hand and subjective, which I'd like to avoid. MaverickNate 22:57, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
About your note here, would that even be necessary if the section names are titled "As an Attack", "As a Pokémon Power", etc...? MaverickNate 22:33, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, no. That message was posted before this discussion, so you can ignore it. And I continue the work when I have enough time, presumably this week.--Den Zen 22:51, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
OH! I think I ignored the times because nuva kal posted something new above it. I was a bit confused. sorry! MaverickNate 23:46, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Why did you take away my revision about bulbasaur? --Jwb141 (talk) 20:31, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Because it's pretty obvious and wouldn't belong to the intro anyway.--Den Zen 20:50, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Talk page

I notice that nobody has been responding to my talk page posts lately despite waiting two weeks, and I had to resort to going to a us er talk page every-time. I even waited This one was a recently skipped post even though it was important. PattyMan 22:46, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

I managed to edit it after many tries.--Den Zen 08:45, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
What about why people aren't responding to my posts? PattyMan 16:23, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Honestly, it doesn't happen that often. But I think it's because nobody just simply can answer to those questions. The best way to avoid it is to just be bold. That's how I got golden awards and became a staff member.--Den Zen 16:59, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Now I see the whole picture. PattyMan 19:42, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
I actually meant to post an answer to that question, but I guess I forgot to. Kogoro said that the page has too much content on it which is causing the server to time out. I believe she's working to fix the problem. --Pokemaster97 02:04, 28 April 2013 (UTC)


I have made a major contribution in BW125 please check if the language part is right Thanks.......... --viv (talk) 09:26, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Language was okay, but you should use link templates, such as {{an|Cilan}}.--Den Zen 09:45, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

One more query that if Ash has carried Charizard to the decolora islands or not?--viv (talk) 11:43, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I'm pretty sure he has.--Den Zen 11:45, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Previous 2 edits

Hi! I'm kinda new to all this, so I just wanted to thank you for correcting one of my edits (don't know what I was thinking) and ask you about the other. For the Damage Modification article, on the Damage Formula, you said that my edit did not make sense. What I meant to say was that if the user of an attack deals a critical hit on the target, the damage formula enters "2" as the type value if the attack is super effective, but "1" otherwise. I'm almost 100% sure on that, but if you could help me reword that or tell me what is wrong with it, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

PS: Another edit I wanted to make was that "other" should include abilities, such as Blaze, Iron Fist, etc. but I wasn't sure how to word that either.


Slkr95 (talk) 03:44, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

There is already a "Critical" value (1 or 2) between "Type" and "other":
Also, I added "Abilities" to the list.--Den Zen 06:39, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I understand that there is a separate critical value already placed in the equation. However, if a critical hit is dealt on a type that would find the attack not very effective, it would still make the Type value a minimum of 1, as it disregards the type effectiveness if it is not very effective. This was so, if a Fire type attack is used against a Water/Rock Pokemon, yet a critical hit is dealt, it does not deal 1/2x (1/4 * 2) the damage, but rather 2x (1 * 2) the damage (not accounting for the other facotors).

Slkr95 (talk) 22:35, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Well, that's (pretty obviously) not true. In my tests, Timburr's Brick Break dealt always 6 or 7 damage without and 12 or 13 damage with a critical hit to Sigilyph, not about 50 damage. The only things critical hits ignore are listed here--Den Zen 08:31, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Tide's page

I had the idea too with Tide's page being named Tide but something else came up. I got Tide's japanese name when I searched on here (Brine, prior to the revelation of being unrelated to tide, and Whirlpool had the now-called Shio translation). Good thing you were there to fix the translations. PattyMan 23:42, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

The problem was that while "しお" means "tide", it is read as "shio", because Japanese and English obviously have different words for the same things. Learning to read katakana and hirakana is pretty easy and very useful for anyone who watches, reads, and plays Japanese anime, manga, and games, respectively. I learned it three years ago when I was 15.--Den Zen 00:02, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
Very helpful. PattyMan 00:04, 11 May 2013 (UTC)


i have a confusion that elekid and electrabuzz were seen in original series then why electiwire was called a new discovered pokemon from sinnoh by gary please answer--viv (talk) 12:46, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Because they didn't know how to evolve Electabuzz. By the way, you shouldn't really ask so many general questions here. You should go to the forums instead.--Den Zen 12:58, 20 May 2013 (UTC)


Can you tell me what was wrong with the: Pinsir category I added on the Pin missile page; so i know for next time.--Japhes (talk) 16:02, 8 June 2013 (UTC) didn't add a category. You made a talk page post that was against the talk page policy; talk pages shouldn't be used for posting opinions about the subject of the article. And by the way, Pinsir shouldn't learn Pin Missile just because it has small spikes in its horns.--Den Zen 15:34, 9 June 2013 (UTC)


In Jessie's achievements I have added that Princess runner-up is that right?--Viv (talk) 03:31, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it's okay, but it should have had a link to the Princess Day article.--Den Zen 08:57, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

And in don't touch that dile in Misty's fantasy there are lots of Water type Pokémon but they are not mentioned like Seaking Dewgong etc. So should I add them ?- unsigned comment from Viv (talkcontribs)

I don't remember that scene and can't find it from the episode pictures. But if it really was there, you can add them with a (fantasy) note.--Den Zen 18:06, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Pokémon X and Y

I have Physiology of Pokémon like Clauncher, Noivern, Talonflame and many more Pokémon but I can't edit can you help me?--Viv (talk) 15:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Just post the description to the talk page and an admin will add it to the article (unless the language is so bad that somebody else should write it instead).--Den Zen 16:12, 12 June 2013 (UTC)


Could "Combine Power" or "Combine Strength" be an accurate translation for 力を合わせて? Since the plain form of 合わせて is the verbal あわせる, which means to unite, to match (speed/strength/rhythm/etc), to combine, etc, I don't see something like "Combine Strength" or "Match Strength" being inaccurate. Especially if the specific chapter is about Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup working together to defeat that Drapion (or so I assume based on the title page scan). MaverickNate 01:04, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I think it works better.--Den Zen 01:16, 16 June 2013 (UTC)


So no I didn't see it, but its true. Who says you can be the one to not let it be added? Maybe it could be met in the middle saying that due to the similarities, or that their was a rumor just like Marowak's, where the evolutions were switched. Its an idea and then people would stop adding it maybe. It could work.

  • Im also going to base my page on here off of yours, if you dont mind since its different than wikipedia and I dont have much to add. This way I can get it started BlackDragon 21:57, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for moving the discussion too. BlackDragon 22:18, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Because this is a wiki, there shouldn't be rumors in trivia section even they say they're just rumors. Also, the evolution switch rumor has some counterarguments, such as the index numbers of Generation II Pokémon and Caterpie being specifically based on a butterfly larva. And yes, you can base your page on my page, just don't make it too similar.--Den Zen 22:38, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok I just saw it and thought I should add it. Still its interesting trivia. Right now I just blanked your page and am editing and adding stuff to make it mine. And will make it different when Im finished. BlackDragon 22:49, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Also is there like a section where I can find the userboxes so I can add more. I know there is on wikipedia and I have a ton there. If there is a list or something I would like to add more to my page, if you could direct me to it. BlackDragon 22:56, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it's Category:User tags. By the way, please remove all user tags that have false information (such as Golden Eevee/Pikachu ones) as soon as possible.--Den Zen 23:02, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Yeah of course. I got most of them but am still doing that. Like I removed the "top contributor" ones and stuff and will later when I finish my page. But thanks for the link. BlackDragon 17:14, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

BULLY! and yes. BlackDragon 17:14, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


...for catching that. I didn't realize that I still had those tags there. — KC 19:32, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Can I ask why I'm not an autoconfirmed user? I have been here long enough --Viv (talk) 11:53, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

According to your user rights page, you should be. Is there something you cannot do? Also, you should start using the new section (+) button when you're making talk page posts.--Den Zen 14:49, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

I found some content stolen

On this site the last trivia of Bulbasaur is quiet similar??Is that stolen??--Viv (talk) 08:31, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Obviously yes; while it is against their rules and their admins have lately removed stolen content, especially new users still steal lots of stuff from us. I really wonder what's the point of the entire site, as they will always be inferior to us.--Den Zen 09:04, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Template Protection

Can I ask if Template:Langtable should be protected? The reason is that it's used for over 1,200 articles. — Reshi643 21:34, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

I went ahead and protected it. --Pokemaster97 22:08, 23 June 2013 (UTC)


I saw that the profile image on the page Platinum is in black and white so I turned it into colour. But I saw that you've once again put the previous one as the profile image. May I know why? `Dawn (talk) 13:48, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

That image isn't a colored image of Platinum, it's Dawn's artwork. They are different characters: Platinum lives in a mansion and is called "Lady", while Dawn is either the player character or Rowan's assistant who doesn't collect Badges.--Den Zen 14:03, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Permission to use User talk template

Can I use your User talk template for my own User talk template? — Reshi643 21:33, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, you can't just use it as it is. But you can copy its source code to create a page called User:Reshi643/talk and then remove/change/add some rules before saving the page.--Den Zen 14:01, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Can you take a look at this to see if it is alright with you? Thanks. — Reshi643 15:13, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
It's perfectly okay.--Den Zen 15:39, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

About that Stone Edge edit

Okay, I'm just gonna go right ahead and admit I'm an idiot. I forgot about the whole No Guard thing and made that without thinking.... My bad. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 23:44, 3 July 2013 (UTC)


this video maker has stolen the stats, Moves of many Pokémon in this video should we flag it?--Viv (talk) 08:32, 6 July 2013 (UTC) can't really say he stole the stats, he's just using them, and there's nothing wrong in that (thogh it'd be nice if there were a link to the source page in the description).--Den Zen 10:10, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Time Warner using Satoshi instead of Ash

Is it note worthy that Time Warner Cable says Satoshi instead of Ash in the info for the episode "Ash and N: A Clash Of Ideals!"?

It says "N and Satoshi become separated from the others; Team Plasma attacks the White Ruins" Yamitora1 (talk) 11:43, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Not really; TV guides make minor errors all the time, and calling him "Satoshi" is techically not an error (some fans always use the Japanese names).--Den Zen 11:53, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
