Welcome to Bulbapedia, HoopsterJohn!

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

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

Trainer listings

When you add detailed Trainer listings (such as the ones you did for Roman or Ricky), please make sure you know what you're doing. It is better for you to not make the edit than to edit it and leave a bunch of things screwed up because you don't know how to properly use the template.

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --Ataro (talk) 17:51, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Just want to remind you about this in light of your recent (and past) editing of Prize money. Take a little more time with it so you don't have to save the page so many times. Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:27, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Logoless XY opening

I edited it out by combining the US screenshot with the Japanese opening and Youtube XY trailer screenshots from the same scene. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 17:48, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, I could, but I would have to edit it frame by frame, which would take ages to finish. That's why I haven't went through the trouble of finishing some other similar videos of mine. I'm sorry. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 18:53, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Large Scale edits

Hello, large scale edits or upgrades like these needs to be approved first. Do not go adding things like these without discussing it on the talk page first. Thank you.--ForceFire 02:47, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

I did it in Talk: Bianca's Emboar --HoopsterJohn (talk) 16:29, 6 October 2014 (UTC)


I was referring to the Dark Pulse, not Frogadier. I know Frogadier is still a pure Water-type, but the attack that the female Meowstic manipulated with Psychic was a Dark-type move and therefore should not have worked. --PKMNAdventurer (talk) 13:37, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Edit notes

There is no need to be aggressive in your edit notes. If someone makes a mistake, fix the mistake but do not insult any in your edit notes. The notes are to summarize the changes made, not to vent frustration or insult other users. ChE clarinetist (talk) 20:10, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Re: Battle Frontier

It is done. Thanks for the link. TehPerson (talk) 18:23, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Re: Battle Maison

Here is a list of the ORAS names in Spanish:

Normal - Super -

They are in the same order you see on the Trainers page before you sort the list at all. If there's random-looking names at the bottom, that's probably multi-battle partner data. TehPerson (talk) 06:38, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much!, you're totally awesome, by the way about when you put in the trivia of Battle Maison, so the Waiter Gonyan from Battle Subway and the Garçon Darcy is almost the same character? --HoopsterJohn (talk) 20:22, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
There's actually a couple dozen examples of quotes copied over from BW to XY. I can have a list of quotes page for BW done as well if that's interesting to see. TehPerson (talk) 02:29, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Talk page responses

Please try to keep talk page discussions in one place. If someone replies to your talk page, respond there first, not on their talk page. If you feel they're not noticing after a while, then you can post something on their talk page (a link back to your talk page might be best, just so, again, the whole conversation remains in one place), but we can't have two sides of a conversation playing out on two separate talk pages like you're starting to do here... That's just ridiculous. Please try to keep it where it started.

Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:36, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

American vs European Spanish

Firstly neither the Latin American nor the European dub of the Pokémon anime are more official then the other one. Secondly please add both of them and not just the Castillian and mark them as such using |es_la= and |es_eu respectively. Thank you. --Raltseye prata med mej 21:54, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Talk pages

Hey. I'd just like to point out that talk pages of articles should only be used for discussion related to the article. They are not meant for casual talk or pointing out something unrelated, like you did on the talk page of Katie (AG148). ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 21:40, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Are you doing the same with the page of Alvin? --HoopsterJohn (talk) 02:40, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
