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!

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 Changes button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --Lady Ariel 00:35, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Please remember to make use of the preview button. Thanks! Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:55, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
I tend to save bulk changes in case of any crashes. Is that alright? Lanthanum (talk) 14:13, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Stage Data

Got a source for all that? Presuming there was another data rip showing it that I haven't seen yet. I'm still adding the Pokémon to the other list, but we're missing the skills and rest periods, and some types (for dual types) may also be wrong and need updating. I'll finish that list and update the ones I've caught in my game this evening and we can go from there. Also guessing the missions are a different text file, but maybe we can interpolate what goes where from that later if it's found. CycloneGU (talk) 03:54, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Serebii's list seems to be accurate so far, so I've placed them as placeholders. If there are any inaccuracies along the way as we confirm the info, simple edits could be done. Lanthanum (talk) 05:07, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Stage Data

I have news for you. I just got someone to do a data rip and it turns out there are missions for ALT World stages. So what we're doing for 1-30 right now we have to do again for 1-30 in the Alt World.

I am not sure what the total Picrite rewards are, but seeing that data tells me that we have more than enough to earn back in the Alt World. I'm going to clear through Area 10 and then I might think about moving into there after reviewing the missions for Alt World to see if I can do all of them. The missions include things like "avoid setting any legendary or mythical Pokémon" and "avoid setting any Pokémon", though some have things like "avoid using any reveal skills". Since there is likely a time goal, and likely the fourth for doing all missions, it suggests there are 6 Picrites possible per stage again, meaning for an average of 7 Pokémon per area, over 10 areas (I know, one has three, one has with me here), you're still looking at a possible 6*7*10=420 Picrites just for those 70 possible stages. 300 for Alt World now seems like a worthwhile investment.

Going to post this finding at GameFAQs right now, in fact. I've asked for editing power over the sheet so that I can decode everything, after which I can copy every single task in. Continue as you are for now, and I'll start from the back, eventually working over to Alt World. After you reach where I add to, all you have to do when I'm done is verify that I didn't code anything incorrectly when entering the goals and I'll do the same in both worlds as well.

Also sharing this news with Raltseye. CycloneGU (talk) 03:25, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good; mind sending over the data rip so I can help input the missions? Lanthanum (talk) 07:55, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Move pages convention

To answer your question, changing the template used (so in this case, going from Template:Moveentry/6 to Template:Moveentry/7) while not inserting any value for the Generation VII section will indicate that the move is unable to be learned by that method (in this case, leveling up) in that generation (VII). In other words, you did it correctly. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 13:53, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Generation VII learnsets

When updating to Generation VII learnsets, please remember that some moves have been modified, such as moves as common as Tackle. Please fix whatever you missed accordingly, and remember this for the future. Thanks! --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 15:33, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Will take note, thanks! Lanthanum (talk) 15:35, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Another note: if you are going to update Generation VII, you must also search for new species that can learn the moves. It's leaving work for us to go back and complete later. Also, I found that the data you added at Power Whip remained hidden despite your adding it because you forgot to change the 3 to a 4 in each row. These little things cause us to have to revisit the page later to further update data. While I am visiting every page to verify the information anyway, please try to get it right before I get there so all I have to do is check it against my list and delete it from that list, thus letting me move on faster. Thanks! CycloneGU (talk) 23:44, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Actually, on further glance, it appears my attempt to edit at Power Whip and clicking to edit as someone else saved an edit might be the cause of that mixup. Beat me by about two minutes, he did. XD Even so, the point about adding new species stands, so please try to do that. =) CycloneGU (talk) 23:46, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Was there an instance where what I updated wasn't complete? :O I use a verified pastebin as reference and as far as I know, I've been adding Gen VII mons that learn the moves too. Either way, I will try to be more careful next time. Lanthanum (talk) 14:39, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
I think I covered a couple of cases, but one from yesterday was missing Togedemaru at Present (see diff). No worries, it happens, I'm just reminding you to check, nothing more. =) This is one of the sources I check, but also I have a document from another staff member that created the lists for each Pokémon; I use that for my breed data. My learnset data sheet I created myself using something from OR/AS and modifying it to manually add the level-up move data and note anything that has changed.

Creating new articles

When you create new articles by copypasting and editing an existing similar article, please remember to change or remove anything that is not true for the new article before pressing the save page button. The new Z-move articles you created had more than five things that were only true for Clangorous Soulblaze.--Den Zen 17:05, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Apologies. It was my first time making new articles on Bulba. I'll keep that in mind next time around. Lanthanum (talk) 17:12, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
