Wha...? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:24, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Uhhh... I think s/he wants you to correct his/her grandma's grammar. Maybe. JoeRunner (talk) 22:10, 25 June 2019 (UTC) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:41, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

The word "against".

Dear GrammarFreak01,

Please end your determination to get rid of the word "against" across articles. This isn't a necessary edit and would definitely be considered useless. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 23:49, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Just a reminder that these kind of edits where you're zeroing in on just one word and changing that one word is considered unnecessary. I personally don't mind either wording of "X battled against Y" or "X battled Y". If it's consistency you're after, I don't think it's that much of an issue if one articles uses "X battled Y" and another uses "X battled against Y".--ForceFire 05:46, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
But I've never heard "X battled against Y" being used outside of this site. "X battled Y" is unanimously more prevalent from what I've read. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:00, 23 June 2019 (UTC)


I'm not sure if I've said this before, but you shouldn't do what you most recently did to SM128's page again. Links need to be to what they're related to. If Hau's Dartrix is mentioned, it needs to be link to HIS, not the Pokemon as a whole. It is not about every Dartrix, but Hau's and Hau's alone. That's not how linking goes here. Playerking95 (talk) 11:00, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

I know for a fact that those kinds of links are frowned upon. I think BigDocFan was the one who got in trouble for that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 11:02, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
If it has a page, then yes it should link to Hau's Dartrix. If not, then it links to the species page. I'm pretty sure I've told this to one of you two.--ForceFire 11:53, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
I think you told BigDocFan that, but I don't exactly remember. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:24, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

Your userpage

Gen 8 came out ages ago iirc. your userpage is old. - unsigned comment from Alivebacon (talkcontribs) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:46, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
Grammar's right on that. Gen 8 is coming out in November. (You might be thinking about Gen 7. I confuse them sometimes too because their numerals are so similar.) JoeRunner (talk) 22:05, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Undoing my edit SM102

Why did you just undo my edit? PokéSean 23:33, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Not notable. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:34, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for helping me. Is there a way of communicating with people on the site other than this or am I doing it right? :) - unsigned comment from Mega Growlithe (talkcontribs)

AG176 mistakes

What could I do more better and did you really think Butch left off-screen? PokéSean 19:30, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

I have talked with [[::User:Force Fire|Force Fire]] ([[::User talk:Force Fire|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Force Fire|contribs]]) about this because you didn't reply. PokéSean 00:43, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Removing clears

Please don't remove clears ({{-}}) for no reason. They exist to prevent images from a previous section interfering in the following one. They're particularly important for left-aligned images. For example, this is why clears are important. --SnorlaxMonster 10:26, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

Nothing was being interfered on my screen, though. It was just leaving an unnecessary space. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:28, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Your screen isn't the only screen on which people view pages. Furthermore, clears shouldn't create any additional space unless they are clearing something (as long as there aren't excess new lines around them), which indicates there was something on your screen that needed clearing if you were able to observe a difference. --SnorlaxMonster 10:33, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

League Conference

My edit to the League Conference page was not "insignificant". Torpoleon (talk) 16:55, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Your recent edits

I was told to not undo rewording to edits, because that is edit waring. So you shouldn't be undoing my rewording. You can't keep rewording everyone else and then not allow people to do the same to you when they feel it's necessary. Playerking95 (talk) 19:23, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry. Just trying to be consistent with other articles. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:24, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

James T-Shirt

Should not the reference in the shirt to James' Chimecho be mentioned in his article? They did this at the time when Jessie brought an Arbok flute. Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:29, 07 July 2019 (UTC)

I think those bits of trivia are more important and appropriate for the episode articles rather than the Pokémon articles. Will be removing the Arbok examples now. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:12, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
In fact I find these references and quotations more interesting than trivia like "Pokemon x is the first of someone to do thing y" or something of the sort, because are things made for those long time fans who keep their eye on details, but ok.-- Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:25, 07 July 2019 (UTC)


To answer your question, your change to my edit in the M05 page was too wordy and contained too much unnecessary information. Honestly, you should stop nitpicking with edits that people make here. Torpoleon (talk) 22:27, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

It certainly doesn't need to be its own bullet. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:41, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
You're wrong. Torpoleon (talk) 01:10, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Would you mind telling me why? Also, it looks like Force Fire agrees with me. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:00, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Mind your own damn business and quit changing my edits. Torpoleon (talk) 16:46, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
That's not much of an explanation, now is it? At some point, other people are going to change your edits in some shape or form, so don't get into a big fuss about it. Plus, I think establishing the amount of years the trend has been going on for before being broken is significant. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:51, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
I already gave you an explanation. I don't mind changes as long as they are worthwhile. Your changes (not just to my edits, but to many other edits) are nitpicky and minor edits. Judging by comments other people have made on your talk page, I am not the only one to bring this up. Do me a favor and stop stalking my edits, and adding your nitpicky, minor grammar changes. Torpoleon (talk) 18:03, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
So establishing the amount of years the trend has been going on for before being broken is nitpicky and minor? Sure... GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:04, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Diglett source

Why would we need to link to an external article? The game directly states that Diglett was created by Shigeki Morimoto. Of course, if we can link to a video, I will do that, but it seems like an unneeded step. Doomhiker (talk) 12:40, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Where exactly does the game state it? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:02, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
In the quote from Shigeki Morimoto after being defeated when the player has a Diglett with a Game Boy origin marking in their party, in Pokémon Sun and Moon: "You know Diglett, right? It's actually basically just a character that I had made up when I was a little kid. I even drew up a flip-book featuring it then!" Doomhiker (talk) 16:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
You're going to need to run that through with an admin, then, because I'm not sure if that's reliable enough. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 17:17, 28 July 2019 (UTC)


Several of the entries about real animals and biology in Bulbapedia are grossly mistaken, showing a misunderstanding of species diversity and distribution, and especially, of ecological interaction and evolution. I tried to change some minor things, but they got reverted. Seridon (talk) 20:45, 05 August 2019 (UTC)

You're going to have to consult with the admins on that. Everything looks fine on my end. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:11, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Plot edits

Dear GrammarFreak01,

Your recents edits to the episode plots are not required, often only rephrasing a sentence slightly or deleting entire details which you deem unimportant. Also you are now editing the Sun and Moon plots a paragraph at a time, a habit that is not condoned on Bulbapedia. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 22:03, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Stop being so stylish and flashy with your writing. That's what's not needed. Plot summaries are meant to be summaries, not a place to show off writing styles and skills. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:05, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
There's also no need to describe absolutely everything that happens in an episode, all the way down to the last gag. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:06, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Also, it's become very exhausting for me to edit an entire plot summary, which is why I've been editing plot summaries by paragraph now. I'm better with quicker, simplistic edits. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:09, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
You cannot be editing by sections simply because its convenient for you. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 22:16, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Alola League starting episode

The Alola League arc starts in SM129, because that's where the opening ceremony is. That has always been the mark to start the League. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:03, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

You might want to talk to Reinhartmax about that. He said this to say about the matter. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:06, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
All those episodes were where the League was officially declared to have begun. Kukui didn't officially start the League until SM129. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:27, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
Once again, talk to Reinhartmax about that. I'm just following their lead. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:44, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I've already brought this issue up with Force Fire and am waiting for his reply. With all due respect, I have more, well, respect for his opinion as an admin. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:54, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Okay. Still, talk with it about Reinhartmax. I think they raise a solid point. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:11, 11 August 2019 (UTC)


Hi Grammar, hope all is well. Was wondering if you had an account on Bulbagarden as a member wants to discuss things regarding recent edits for Guzma's Golisopod--BigDocFan (talk) 20:41, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Detective Pikachu Mewtwo thing.

"But the movie is linked in the section header." Can't I just change the header? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 01:59, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

No. That's for the movie. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:35, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
And why doesn't the article mention the video game? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 04:53, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
There can be a separate section for that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:54, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I want to, but I'm not sure how to differentiate the two. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 04:57, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Just so we're clear, I'm asking for advice. ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 21:41, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Omastar Origin wording

Hey, it seems like there's a disconnect in our understanding of the Origin section of Omastar's article. When I wrote it, I was pretty deliberate with my choice of wording for the comparison to Anomalocaris. I didn't use the term "ring-shaped mouth(s)" because I was referring to the specific structures which crush prey, rather than the mouth as a whole. You can see in the linked Wikipedia article that the term "mouthparts" (or sometimes "mouth parts"/"mouth-parts") is standard to differentiate between the two. If you think a different wording would be better, I would be glad to hear your reasoning.

I do appreciate you fixing the Wikipedia link, by the way. I still need some practice with this website's formatting.

I hope we can reach an understanding!

TheHodag (talk) 21:38, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

[[::User:Force Fire|Force Fire]] ([[::User talk:Force Fire|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Force Fire|contribs]]) changed the wording in the first place, and since he's an admin, I was just following his lead. You'd want to ask him about it. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:16, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
The sentence was talking about Omastar, not the Anomalocaris, as it was saying "its (Omastar's) method of... may be based on Anomalocaris". CAlling Omastar's mouth, "mouth parts" was just odd.--ForceFire 05:38, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with that sentiment. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:40, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages

Hello. I think the version with titles was better. There are various kinds of things together and it seemed more organized that way. Can this be reverted or discussed?

I used the format commonly used by number pages: 001, 002, 003, etc. so I think this was consistent.

I added titles because I also added more items in the disambiguation pages. If the pages had few items, I think the version without titles would work well.

FWIW, Wikipedia usually uses heading titles (like == ==), like in wikipedia:Gold (disambiguation). --Daniel Carrero (talk) 19:14, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Pokémon Ranger also uses some titles like those. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 19:16, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
There's a lot of unprofessional formatting and too much changing going on from a basic, standard format. If you want to overhaul how the disambiguation pages look, you'll need to consult with the admins. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:48, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
OK, I asked on Discord now about it. I'm waiting to see if anyone replies.
About "unprofessional formatting"... This seemed to be normal around here, because of pages like 001, 002, 003, etc. I mean, "titles" formatted as simple text followed by a colon. I would have preferred using the format that Wikipedia uses, that is titles between "== ==".
Pikachu (disambiguation) also uses titles like those pages you reverted. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 05:17, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, the Pikachu disambiguation page looks alright in terms of presentation, but I do agree with you that the Wikipedia format looks better. I just wasn't sure if the admins would approve of such a drastic remake of the disambiguation pages, so I just let them be. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:21, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
I see apparently the titles are being readded. I also used Discord to suggest changing them to the Wikipedia format.
I added heading titles to Dark. It's only one page for now, so we could see how it looks. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 05:42, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Because an admin disagrees with my reversions. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:43, 15 September 2019 (UTC)


Why? Tell me. It's the worldwide repercussion of one of the most important moments of anime. I even saw non-anime people reporting the event. Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:21, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Episode articles are not for audience reactions and such. By your logic, we would also have to include a whole tidbit on how XY131 sparked a massive fan backlash and we don't see that anywhere on the episode article, so it's not important. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:55, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
No, my logic is that sites like CNN, IGN and others have reported this. It is an important brand for anime, and one of the most important events of the franchise. It is the break of a twenty year cycle that was reported by the franchise creators and put the franchise in evidence. This is a completely different case from the episode you quoted.
But ok, I think arguing about it won't do you any good. Then let it go.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 00:03, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
There have been news articles on the XY fan backlash too. Check Wikipedia. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:10, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Future appearances

I noticed that at the start of September you listed that Mimey will reappear in SM138. Only humans gets those things listed, so please don't do that for Pokemon again. Playerking95 (talk) 16:19, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, my bad. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:16, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your good service!

I think your service on Bulbapedia is so good that the Editorial Board should promote you to a staff member! --TheICTLiker4 15:55, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

It's probably a little too late for that since I've been blocked so many times. Plus, I don't even know how to apply to be a staff member. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:19, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Unsigned posts

Do not edit talk pages without permission, unless you want to leave a message. Thank you. --TheICTLiker4 06:46, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Uhh... no. You can edit other users talk page to add an unsigned template to unsigned comments. You can't customize their talk pages.--ForceFire 07:00, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Episode renumbering

Please do not assist, BulbaBot is taking care of it. --Abcboy (talk) 03:55, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Oh, okay. Got it. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:55, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Last episodes before games

Why do you see the trivia points of some certain episodes being the last ones to air before or first ones to air in the States before a certain game's release? Is it that this kind of trivia better applies to the episodes released in Japan around the release of a new game? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:50, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Yes. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:06, 20 October 2019 (UTC)


Why have you decided to revert all my edits from yesterday? It mainly consisted of universal consistency between all pages that shared the particular distinction (Counterpart Pokemon)?ThunderBrine (talk) 20:34, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Your edits need to substantial. If they change the meaning of the sentence, or at the very least correct errors, then they're acceptable. Your edits did neither. Achieving universal consistency is not a good reason to replace words with other words that pretty much mean the same thing. Trust me, I've gotten in trouble for doing the exact same thing. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:37, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Talk Page Messages

Thanks for sending me the messages. I do sometimes forget about my grammar and the {{}} curly brackets in pages, so yeah. I'll try and remember if I can. Luigitehplumber (talk) 18:09, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:25, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Ash's Pikachu

I just wanted to say I really appreciate all the edits you've made to improve Ash's Pikachu's page. How much more fixing do you think still needs to be done before the cleanup template can be removed? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:13, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

I'll see if the Sun & Moon series section needs some polishing and then we'll be good to go. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:12, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
Congrats on completing the grand job! Now the article is ready for the start of the new series! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:23, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:21, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

SM movies

I understand what you mean but I absolutely not agree to the current situation, or in other words, felt being cheated, so I have already put the issue to Talk:Pokémon movie. KyleRGiggs 04:49, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

A recent post of mine was marked with "Vandal filter 3"

I would like to know why my recent talk section "Pokemon should be discussed as a species, not individual pokemon.", posted on ForceFire's talk page, was marked as "Vandal filter 3."

As far as I understand, my only error was that I did not sign my talk post with four tildes.

I was not being offensive or derogatory. I was only justifying my reasons for making a previous edit. I even finished my post with an invitation to discuss, and a proper thank you.

If you can shed some light into why I have been discouraged from sharing my thoughts on a public (albeit monitored) wiki page, I'd appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Evanodson1 (talk) 04:41, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

I'm honestly not sure. I've never even heard of this vandal filter that you speak of before. I'm not very familiar with the software of this site, so you'll have to ask Force Fire and they'll take you from there. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:43, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Clarification on "Not a Pokédex entry"

You removed text from the Biology sections of a number of Pokemon articles, with the reason being "Not a Pokédex entry". From what I can tell, and you can correct me if I'm wrong, you are saying that this section should be focused on describing the physical descriptions, rather than covering behavioral topics that would be covered by the actual Pokédex entries. I've noticed, though, that historically the different articles on this site for Pokemon DO restate the information covered by Pokédex entries within the Biology sections, so I'm wondering if this is supposed to be a change that will be extended to older articles.

Additionally, a decent portion of the text you've removed recently has information that was covered by the Sword & Shield website and not by any Pokedex entries, so I am also wondering whether you prefer these be covered elsewhere in the articles, or perhaps not at all if it is not information specifically mentioned in the Pokedex.

As an example, you removed a paragraph from Weezing's Biology section that has information about Galarian Weezing from the website, but did not touch the behavioral information for Kantonian Weezing earlier in the section. In comparison, you completely cleared the Biology section for Arrokuda, which had information just from the Pokedex entries.

I'm just looking for clarification here, so if I'm off-base on this let me know. --Neumannz (talk) 16:53, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

You're correct. The Pokédex entry restatements you mention only span a couple of sentences at most. In the cases where I removed them, they covered entire paragraphs of considerable length. The "Biology" sections need to primarily cover physical descriptions. The rest of that information has been appropriately covered by the "Pokédex entries" or "Origin" sections. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:41, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Seems reasonable enough, except it looks like the information on the website does not always overlap with the Pokédex entries, and since the Origin section is more focused on comparing aspects of the Pokémon with their real-world inspirations, it doesn't look like these new bits of information will end up being covered anywhere. Unless some information will be more acceptable than other information? I noticed you didn't remove the part on Gossifleur about folk remedies when you last edited it, for example. --Neumannz (talk) 22:40, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
If you're talking about this edit, then I didn't remove it because that's acceptable for "Origin" material, not "Biology" material, as far as I'm concerned. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:45, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Well that explains a lot. So if someone were to add that information from the official Sword and Shield website again in the future it has to be at least one two sentence at most right so that won't happen again right? Just want to make sure to avoid that again if I want to edit them back but only two form the site while rest have to be Pokédex entries?--Jacob Kogan (talk) 02:45, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

(resetting indent)Not sure where you got the idea that we don't describe a Pokémon's behavior when almost every pre-Gen VIII Pokémon has their behavior described in their Biology section. The Biology section is for describing almost everything about the Pokémon, which includes its appearance, behavior, and habitat (as it has always been from before the Biology section overhaul). (One of the purposes of) the origins sections should be about possible inspirations based off those behaviors.--ForceFire 04:28, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

Plus some of the Gen 8 Pokémon's pages haven't been clear out like the case with Weezing, and the have both all the information from Pokédex and Sword and Shield official website, take Zacian, Zamazenta, Centiskorch, Sandaconda, and Drednaw for example. i get the whole was to avoid a similar case with Necrozma but this is rather different compare to before.--Jacob Kogan (talk) 04:33, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
My apologies for the late response. From the Pokémon articles I've seen so far, we don't dedicate entire paragraphs explaining their behavior, just a couple of sentences at most. Then again, I've only scoured through 5-10% of those articles in the past week or so, I might be wrong on that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:21, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
Is there any actual established standard on what and how much to cover under Biology? I don't see any guidelines in the Manual of Style. --Neumannz (talk) 14:10, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

My page for Inteleon

Just curious, why was the information about its spy theme removed? I understand the behavioral stuff, but the spy theme section was part of the description, as it explains the biology of Inteleon's hands, which shoot water, as well as its eye lids, which help it aim, and its cape, which helps it glide, as well as its tail, which has a knife. This is all part of the biology of Inteleon. I'm a new editor and just want some clarification for future posts. (Zvoosh25 (talk) 20:29, 18 December 2019 (UTC))

That information can be more adequately covered in the "Origin" section. The "Biology" sections are primarily for physical descriptions. Any miscellaneous information only takes about one or two sentences to cover, not entire paragraphs. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:42, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Okay, so should I rewrite the above information about its body in fewer sentences in the "Biology" section? These are part of its biology, and don't truly fit in the origin of the Pokémon, as they aren't general statements such as how he is based on a spy. Also, in the same vein, why then does the unique move go into the "Biology" section as well? Wouldn't that also fall into some other section? Zvoosh25 (talk) 23:04, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for the late response. All of the information about the spy inspiration should be unanimously moved to the "Origin" section. If it explicitly mentions "inspiration" rather than it being part of its biology, regardless of generalization, then it doesn't belong to the "Biology" section. Its spy-like behavior, on the other hand, would be worthy of "Biology" material. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:24, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

About the problem in my page

The problem is that I asked FinnishPokéFan92 for the location and he tolds me to ask an administrator for the location of rare candy in the Galactic Veilstone Building. Vivi95 (talk) 11:56, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for not responding earlier. Anyway, whatever happened to being patient and waiting? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:30, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

Edit warring

Due to your edit warring with GalarPony on the articles EP042 and EP046, you have been blocked for six days, one day per reverted edit as stated in the blocking policy. Please bring such disputes to a staff member rather than continue to undo edits. --Abcboy (talk) 02:06, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

I think you should block GalarPony longer, because it's clear his incivil attitude hasn't changed at all. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:26, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
I've also explained why the edits should not be undone in the edit summaries. Does that not count as discussion? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:27, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
I also contacted GalarPony about the edit-warring. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:34, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
I call shenanigans on how I'm blocked longer for GalarPony when he was clearly the disruptive one. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:36, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I would like to contest this block. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:38, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
Hello? Are you still there? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:50, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
Please, I want to talk about this. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:52, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
Please? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:57, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
"all parties involved in an editing or reverting war will be blocked; for help on someone modifying a page via a revert or edit, contact one of the administrators. Taking matters into the user's own hands will result in the temporary blocking of both parties involved, typically for 24 to 72 hours. Taking part in an edit war will result in being blocked for one day per reverted edit."
"Temporary blocks of less than a week cannot be appealed."
You've been around long enough that you should know not to edit war; you reverted GalarPony's edits multiple times across both pages. --Abcboy (talk) 20:12, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
I warned him but he continued with his disruptive reversions. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:40, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
And this message is all the evidence I need to prove GalarPony is an inherently disruptive account who will not change his ways and therefore needs to be blocked longer than me. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:42, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
The moment his block ends, he's going to keep removing material and vandalizing articles, trust me. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:12, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

what style of English is appropriate on Bulbapedia?

Hello Is there a single style of English I.E. UK, U.S. or SA English that must always be used on Bulbapedia? I ask because I am not the best with U.S. English given I am Ugandan and know more British English. Is there a standard form of English that must always be used or does it matter if an entire article is UK or U.S. English? If it is U.S. English ow will you help people like me who do not know U.S. English type in it? African Vulture (talk) 20:17, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

From my experience, U.S. English is the way to go here. If you want more information on the differences between UK and U.S. English, just Google it. There are tons of sources that should be able to help you out in that regard. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:43, 1 January 2020 (UTC)
Oh my, that may prove a bit difficult for me to type in U.S. English, I will do my best but please don't murder me if I fail.
African Vulture (talk) 01:03, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
It shouldn't be that hard. Just Google it if you're confused. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:43, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Advice RE 'Cleanup'

Hey, thanks for fixing some of the code on the Rocketshipping page!

I see you've added the cleanup template up top. I am currently in the process of cleaning the page up and I just want to check, so I can finish it off properly, what aspects are still non-compliant with the manual of style that you put that there? - unsigned comment from Ii kanji (talkcontribs)

Pretty much everything. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:43, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Togedemaru Location

I'm just wondering while most of the other pokemon locations format is Route 8 when there is only one Route number, why you are making it like Route 8? Is there any reason? Sorry I'm newbie. (Ozderya (talk) 21:29, 2 January 2020 (UTC))

Honestly, the other Pokémon articles I've seen use the latter option, but then again, since there's so many species, I've probably only looked at five percent of the total Pokémon articles before coming to the conclusion the latter option was the standard option. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:36, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
I might be wrong but I never realized second one when there is only one route. Maybe I haven't given enough attention. However I just checked Pikachu's page assuming the most popular pokemon should be in correct format and it did not have latter option. (Ozderya (talk) 21:47, 2 January 2020 (UTC))
Well, if you insist. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:49, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
Actually I don't mind. I'm just trying to figuring out winch one is correct. (Ozderya (talk) 21:54, 2 January 2020 (UTC))
I honestly don't know either. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:55, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

M22 cast

I'm not saying they're replacing the actors, but they haven't announced an English dub (yet). --Smartorama (talk) 06:47, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

There's always one, without a doubt. Wait for an explicit confirmation of otherwise and do not edit-war. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:52, 4 January 2020 (UTC)


You added a cleanup template to Ballonlea. Are you intending to clean up the article yourself, or is that notice for everyone? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:25, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

For everyone, pretty much. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:20, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Team Yell Grunt trivia

I removed the logo because I added link to the list of companies, where the logo can be seen.--Fortranm (talk) 06:48, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Oh, okay. Word of advice, use an edit summary, which you'll find under "Summary" below the editing screen. It'll help you clarify things for other users who may be confused. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:15, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Hop trivia

I don't think that's much of a speculation. It's only intuitive to think that he keeps the same Pokemon throughout his journey. That's the very reason Nessa's Drednaw and Zook's Zangoose are noted, no?--Fortranm (talk) 00:55, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Blue and Gary

What is the difference between Gary and Blue?--Hikaru Wazana 04:00, 24 January 2020 (GMT)

They're characters from different canons. Gary is Blue's anime counterpart. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:41, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Pretty much. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:30, 24 January 2020 (UTC)


How can the name Oak be a correct translation of Ōkido (オーキド)? Wc12271991 (talk) 08:11, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Do you have an official source saying it's not? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:15, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
I didn't even know if there is one that says that. All I know is that Ōkido (オーキド) actually doesn't translate to "Oak". I used Google Translate to translate the name and the translation I got that was inaccurate was "Orchid". Wc12271991 (talk) 08:24, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Do not rely on Google Translate. It is inaccurate. The translations the site uses are official. If there is a problem with accuracy, you're going to have to take it up with the admins. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:27, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

About the translation "orchid"

If a literal translation "orchid" is supposed to have a lowercase o in the beginning of it, then why would it have an uppercase o in the beginning said translation in the name section of an article about the NPC Professor Oak? Wc12271991 (talk) 22:06, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Because every first letter's supposed to be capitalized at the beginning of every sentence. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:03, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Help with on how to editing

Hello this is User: PokePrime I'm a biggest fan of Ash Ketchum and to Ash's Pikachu, I started editing, as you know before, recently. I kindly ask for help since I don't know how to editing and don't know what am I doing. I mean I tried to contribute somethings to Ash Ketchum and to Ash's Pikachu and feel that it was terrible. I've been editing on Pokemon Wiki Fandom and the editing that contributes were good and others were bad and I can't seem to make right editing. Since I disobey a simple order which is that I posted an image with a bad name I was block out from editing. I do need help. Also I do need help how to upload images. Thank you. - unsigned comment from PokePrime (talkcontribs)

Removing an administrator's edits

Regarding talk page warnings

While I understand that you are trying to be helpful with space conservation, please note that our talk page policy currently states that: When you start a new topic, create it manually at the bottom of the page or use the (+) button to do this automatically. Please stop leaving messages to other users requesting that they not do this, because they are technically not breaking any of Bulbapedia's policies or procedures. Relatedly, please also do not make edits simply to remove space such the one you made here, as this is largely pointless in the grand scheme of things. If you have any questions or concerns about this please do reach out. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 18:10, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
