There's been rumblings of too much non-pedia discussion around here, so, in best interest of that, if you want to tell me something personal, or just plain off-topic, send me a PM OR visit the new Bulbapedia Discussion Forum, instead of commenting here.

BTW...tired of waiting for a new Pokémon game just to tackle some new gyms? Then bring it on.

I'm watching you...


Could I update the Bulbapedia:Project MoveDex page? It looks like a bit of a mess at the moment and I don't think users know what they're looking at for a template. I was thinking of rearranging it so that we have a section first of what it should look like in the edit box and out of the edit box, with each section described. TESHIGIGAS 17:27, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

i suppose. im not even sure what that project is supposed to do. guess that says something, doesnt it? granted, im not exactly the person to talk to when it comes to projects. -- MAGNEDETH 17:33, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Unown template

Is it more useful than the Arceus one or should I move/put it up for deletion as well Template:Sprite/4/28formes--MisterE13 18:56, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

no, we dont need that. our Unown template is fine. if you want to keep that one for yourself you do that, then tell me, and ill delete it. -- MAGNEDETH 18:58, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I moved it, could you please recreate the Arceus one and post on my page so I can move it.--MisterE13 00:05, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
do it to it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
meh. i did it for you. -- MAGNEDETH 00:23, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
I actually wanted to merge the two together. What are the rules for that?--MisterE13 01:58, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

youve got mail

--Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

this isnt BP related. ill check my mail when i check my mail. -- MAGNEDETH 01:55, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


User is abusing the userspace, already received 3 warnings for over-editing the userspace. Might you put an edit protect onto both userpages he has been editing, at least until a Bureaucrat can add him to Abuse? He has been editing his own userpage, and Ashura's. (Hopefully you're still online) - Kogoro | Talk to me | 01:19, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

sort of sucks i dont have the ability to put someone in abuse, but, i do what i can. meanwhile, i think were going to have to look into why this person was editing two pages. -- MAGNEDETH 01:26, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
Aye, would be nice if standard Administrators could throw a user into abuse. Thanks for doing the protects though. I'm somewhat assuming that there's about 4 options. Sockpuppet, Sibling/Family Member, Friend, or they're a couple. (Though I think that covers everything...) However, since the 2nd username hasn't made an edit yet, I believe that Check users can't check their IPs yet. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 01:32, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
well, as you can see in RC, ive enlisted the help of a boss man. should have it sorted out in no time. -- MAGNEDETH 01:34, 7 November 2008 (UTC)



I'm really sorry about what happened yesterday. I didn't know how to check messages. I saw all of the warnings now, and I didn't understand that I'm not supposed to do what I did. The user "Ashura" is not mine, it's my friend's. She asked me to edit her userpage, because she didn't know how to. Is there a way to bring back what I did?

Neri ^^ - sort of unsigned comment from Neri (talkcontribs)

can we bring it back? yes. but, you arent supposed to edit other peoples userpages. even friends. at the request of your friend, we can bring it back, but, you wont be getting your userspace privileges back unless you contribute to the mainspace a bit. thats just the rules. -- MAGNEDETH 23:15, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll ask her to comment here. I really didn't know how to read my messages, or anything like that, but now I do. I would've stopped after the first warning. You said I could get my privileges back if I contribute to the mainspace. I'd love to do so, but, umm, what's the mainspace? Sorry for being such a noob. I'm new to all of these terms and it'll take me some time to understand.

Thanks for everything, Neri - sort of unsigned comment from Neri (talkcontribs)

the mainspace is basically any page that doesnt start with "User". an example would be any Pokemon page, like Magnemite, or any anime page, like EP030, or any other page really, like Wattson. just make sure that anything you edit uses shortlinks, and doesnt link to a page that doesnt exist. for more information on how to edit, on your talk page, the big welcome you have contains pretty much anything you should have a question about. and if that doesnt, the all knowing Manual of style should have it. if neither do, feel free to ask. also, you can sign your name by simply inputting four tildes (~~~~). -- MAGNEDETH 18:45, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

What did you write on my usertalk page..? It's hard to understand.. Neri 19:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

just ignore it, i was yelling at DCM. -- MAGNEDETH 19:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes. Whatever you say deth. *nods head*--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

User Page Edits

Isn't the official policy that you can't edit others' user talk pages without permission? --Raijinili 23:38, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

no. the policy is you cant edit other user's main pages. how would we get anything done otherwise? -- MAGNEDETH 00:42, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, that should be added to the policy page. --Raijinili 01:11, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
It already is. That is the entire userspace policy. --((Marton imos)) 01:17, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Corrected "others' talk pages" to "others' user pages" --Raijinili 01:18, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
ill check it out. -- MAGNEDETH 01:19, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
i feel as though that should cover it. its pretty straightforward. -- MAGNEDETH 01:24, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


Why did you move it? The tiers aren't official, which is why the page was in the Appendix: name space. Chocolate 21:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

given the overload of users complaining that our tiers wernt "correct" we came to the conclusion that BP doesnt need tiers. this is a wiki, and we specialize in factual information. -- MAGNEDETH 22:49, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed the edit on Daisy. You said no pages linked to it as Daisy being Bill's sister. Gotcha! Bill's Grandpa. --Prmatt11 00:51, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

yea, no pages link to Daisy, bill's sister, and they dont. you liked to Bill. and just now you linked to Bills grandpa. what does he have to do with any of this?? -- MAGNEDETH 00:54, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I was looking at an older version of the page.( I'm having a rough day today.--Prmatt11 01:01, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
its alright. we all have our days. -- MAGNEDETH 01:04, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Hello, I am a rather dormant user. You see, I joined the community a few months ago, and since then, I have been finding it difficult where to begin. I only have about 60 content-related edits. I have noticed that the recent changes page tends to move like that of Wikipedia's, quickly and uneasily. Users seem to make edits here more related to code and such, and seeing as it is blocked from IP address editing, it is less prone to vandalism. It is a very nicely written and organized wikia, and the top-editors here should very proud of themselves. So please, if you know how to get me started up again, I'd like to here what you have to say. Bulbapedian - Talk 23:30, 13 November 2008

well, i guess ill start off with, thanks for the compliment. as for editing? well, hard to say. its not so much "do this" or "do that", its more along the lines of, you have to ask yourself, "what can i do?" if you like the anime, and know a lot about it, you can head to any anime page and do whatever. fix errors, add synopsis, etc. you like games? same goes for games too. pretty much anything. if you know "a bit" about those things, and would rather leave it to the knowledge heads, you could snoop around and do templates. we just created a new party/team template (which can be seen here) and that needs to be added to lots of pages. im also not sure if weve finished Platinum move tutors on every Pokemon, so, you could look around for that. a big project is to upload sprites onto the archives, thats on my to-do list. in reality, theres always the stuff on the main page. dirty articles and missing articles. in the end, you dont HAVE to do anything. theres no obligation. hanging around the RC in case of a vandal is nice, and making only a few edits is fine, as long as you dont abuse the userspace or talk pages. in the end, do what you can, and edit what you want. if you have any questions, the welcome no your talk page should give you an idea, or the venerable, Manual of style. -- MAGNEDETH 23:51, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Big Fat Meanie

Why are you so mean? I was trying to have a perfectly "relevant" conversation on that vile robot's disgusting talk page and you had to protect it. Why do you hate me so much? You're sending me into a deep, spiraling depression because I have feelings unlike you. SPIRALING!!! --DialgaRULES 00:36, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

as previously stated, and i quote:
shut up people. do something useful.
deal with it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:37, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for making my comment into a section with a completely inappropriate title. You make me sound like an idiot. I hate you almost as much as I hate Palkia. But not quite. But you're getting closer to that low every day... --DialgaRULES 00:40, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
well, your comment had nothing to do with the previous topic. if you had created a separate section, like youre supposed to, then that wouldnt have happened. moroever, you argued about a completely ridiculous, and pointless point. i dont see why i should throw you any favors. meanwhile, ill go back to training my Palkia. -- MAGNEDETH 00:43, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
What, don't I count as a new user? When are you not counted as a new user anymore? When you're pushed off the User creation log, or after you get picked on by MAGNEDETH? --DialgaRULES 00:44, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
when you stop acting like an idiot, thats when. you yelled at the kid for a completely harmless comment to a good revert. also, if you dont know what "AWOL" and "reprimand" are, then i suggest you go do your homework, rather than argue about something so trivial. i said formally, not aggressively, that you shouldnt have yelled at him. so you decide to get ornery with me? you need to take a chill-pill or your going to find yourself on the business end more times than you care to know. -- MAGNEDETH 00:54, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Heres a hint bud: SHUT YOUR TRAP! your not making any friends by picking such a stupid fight over something so trivial. so shut up and end this topic--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
You're such a meanie, Mag. >:( Glinn Mgraw 01:11, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
yea, i know...oh well. -- MAGNEDETH 01:27, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, this kid needs to learn things. The other day, he thanked me for doing what I always do. Now, me being an admin of the TCG, I really don't think I need to be thanked for adding to the TCG. In short, this kid is weird. MaverickNate 01:34, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
The term you're probably looking for starts with n, ends with b and is n00b. Not that being a n00b is always a bad thing, as long as you make an effort to learn how to not be a n00b. Glinn Mgraw 01:38, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Thats an insult to n00bs EVERYWHERE! no really, he really needs to understand how BP works--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
That's enough! I'm gonna go do something else. Take this as a "hiatus" --DialgaRULES 01:41, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
ok bye. no more people clogging my page now! -- MAGNEDETH 01:42, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
IT WORKED Dont leave, Ill have no one to mock.--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
what did i just say?? stop commenting!! -- MAGNEDETH 01:43, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok I'll stop now--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))


Go tell User talk:Zxeonz that there is no freakin' MOWTA!!! He keeps screwing up the Arceus article to make it look like ther is such thing as a Mowta. I told him to go create it at his user thingy, but maybe you should go tell him what that fanon wikia is. Be harsh like you always are. Thanks. --DialgaRULES 00:05, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

he knows there no Mowta himself. hes most likely just another wannabe vandal/idiot user. -- MAGNEDETH 00:11, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
What is Mowta?--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Crap fanon by Zxeonz. BTW, Magnedeth, go delete the page he just made about Mowta. --DialgaRULES 00:19, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
guess im too fast for you. -- MAGNEDETH 00:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: your message

Keeping the discussion in one place -- THE TROM 01:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)


Talked to TTE about this. He might do this later. See if you like the template idea for Trainer's Eyes:

Tate and Liza Spr RS Tate and Liza.png Mossdeep City Moving Poké Ball.png
Strategy: We battle in cooperation
Trainer's Pokémon: Always friendly Pokémon
Self-Introduction: We understand each other, and we understand others.

If you do, great! TTE told me that it'd be better with an actual table for the widths, so can you help me? ht14 04:27, 17 November 2008

probably better off waiting for TTE on this one. -- MAGNEDETH 04:52, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok then, thanks! ht14 04:54, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

I tried it your way

AND it didnt work. So ive dropped the email idea for now as you hardly answer, please just unblock me on Aim so I can talk to you fully there. Just hear me out, and I wont mention, the I... Proboard at all. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

PLEASE TALK TO ME- unsigned comment from Guardian (talkcontribs)


Slappy keeps putting a suspected English name in the Giratina/sky bouquet article and Kkllnnand DCM, thank you very muchalready had to undo it like 3 times. I sound like a snitch, don't I? --DialgaRULES 22:38, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

no, its acceptable to report something like that, but, be advised, im not online until 6PM EST, so, not much point in telling me at that time, he he. -- MAGNEDETH 02:13, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

I replied

I gave proof the DP hybird exists. - unsigned comment from Foper (talkcontribs)

you dont have to tell me, i monitor RC. -- MAGNEDETH 05:40, 21 November 2008 (UTC)


K i dont wanna break the rules, so i will try and edit more, but can somebody help me, I cant really think of anything to contribute at the mo, so if you could point out some easy stuff that needs doing (maybe on aim) then i will glady do it. Just at the moment, there isnt much I can do. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

hmm, i dont really have any ideas...its a bit slow right now. -- MAGNEDETH 00:14, 22 November 2008 (UTC)


Sehbueno has been editing his userpage too much for today. I was going to warn him, but I saw that he had already gotten warning |0, |1, and |2. Sorry if this is something you let an admin deal with eventually, rather than report. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 22:24, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

no, thats fine, thanks for the notice, he has been dealt with. -- MAGNEDETH 22:30, 24 November 2008 (UTC)


What was that supposed to mean?--KukiTalk 23:21, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

its from an old video game, i dont think anyone understands it but me... -- MAGNEDETH 23:22, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Idiot? No sir!

To answer your question, no I'm not an idiot. I'm just trying to update the evobox so they all have the pretty colours. I was not aware that that particular model only works for Pokémon who only evolve once, and was about to revert it myself. Is there a pretty template for those who evolve multiple times? Have a nice day. — THE TROM — 01:23, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

not yet no. when it is made, the table will update itself actually. -- MAGNEDETH 01:24, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh, cool. Thanks for that. — THE TROM; — 01:30, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I have a slight problem in the finding things to do department, on account of never having played the TCG, watched the anime since early Johto, or done anything else other than play Gen III and IV. Copyediting and cropping irrelevant stuff is fun though. If you've got anything I might enjoy give me a buzz. (By the way, interesting is a POV. I didn't find it interesting, so I lopped it, or cut it down to a manageable chunk of text). — THE TROM — 03:57, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
well, if you had read the welcome template, you would have noted a line in it that explained exactly what you want to know. the line being:
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
so, there you go. the last one, "article's needing improvement" is probably your best bet, because, as you said, youre not a TCG-er. now, some of the trivia you deleted was in the right, after all, no one cares that Exeggutor and Starmie have letters lining up in the dex (or whatever) but, be lenient, its just trivia. -- MAGNEDETH 04:16, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
and btw, yes, those sprite trivia bits are garbage. "Infernape is the most changed, Torterra least." who gives a damn? -- MAGNEDETH 04:18, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Why did you protect my user page?

I was planning to add something to it today, but you protected it. Why? Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 15:38, 27 November 2008

there was a vandal that hit your page, and given the track record of recent vandals (ie: returning under a different name and doing the same thing) after i blocked him, i figured id play it safe. i set it for two weeks which is way too much, but, i figured if nothing happened when i came on today itd be safe anyway. strictly a preemptive strike is all. -- MAGNEDETH 17:19, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh. I see. BTW, regarding that vandal, can you please delete the edits he made to other users' pages? Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 17:28, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
didnt Pikablu already do that? -- MAGNEDETH 17:33, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Nope. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 17:40, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
oh, you mean, delete the page and completely remove the edit from the history? if so, ive never done that before, and i dont particularly have the time to do it now. just came on to make sure everything was ok, youre best bet is to ask SP252. -- MAGNEDETH 17:42, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay. I'll ask him then. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 17:43, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Regarding this edit

How is the right side better? Wouldn't people see it easier on the left? Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 22:20, 28 November 2008

it pushes all the headlines to the right, it looks horrible. people will figure it out now that ive added extra. -- MAGNEDETH 22:21, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Actually, many users think that indenting text is good, including myself. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 22:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I like that now the pictures are evenly distributed with half on the left and half on the right. I'm sure that's what 'Deth was going for as well. — THE TROM — 22:24, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
to be honest, not really, though, i do aim for that mostly. here i think it simply looks awful with it hanging on the left pushing all the text to the right. -- MAGNEDETH 22:25, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Pushing all the text to the right is indenting the text, which is fine to me. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 22:27, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Yea, having the section titles get pushed over isn't too nice. It wouldn't be bad on the left if the Trivia section didn't get pushed over like that. But, since it does, the best option is to have it on the right. Basically, indenting section content is fine, but it's not a good idea to indent section titles. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 22:31, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Chocolate, indenting is to push slightly



what you mean...


is not indenting, thats shoving. -- MAGNEDETH 22:32, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Regarding footsteps

I edited the articles on the Beldum evolutionary family for having an inaccurate number of steps required to hatch an egg, but you undid the edits and wrote on my talk page that the numbers are based on in-game coding, and there's no reason to edit it. Does it really matter if it's based on in-game coding? Fact of the matter is, it takes 10,455 steps to hatch a Beldum, not 10,240. Try it yourself. I've done it three times in a row now myself. Oh, and if this belongs on my talk page, then you have my apologies (for the misplacement, not the claim).--ShadowsofYesterday 00:40, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Just wondering

That p2 template that you put in Scyther to link to Scizor, is that like the new standard link template to the Pokémon's page, while the regular p is outdated? I was just wondering so I can start using it if it is. --PsychicRider 00:52, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

no, its only for linking a word with an article, like, the greatest Pokemon ever. for regular links, simply use the p template, Magnemite. -- MAGNEDETH 00:53, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
OK. I had just never seen the p2 used before, I was just checking. Thank you. --PsychicRider 00:54, 29 November 2008 (UTC)


Instead of protecting it and not allowing it to be created, why not make it a redirect to Regigigas (Pokémon)? Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 02:04, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

thought about it, could do that too, but, we generally dont create re-directs for bad spelling. -- MAGNEDETH 02:06, 29 November 2008
Not unless it's a common mispelling, in which case it can't hurt. But how common would Regigas be? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:16, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
ive never seen it done before, so, no redirect i say. -- MAGNEDETH 05:20, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
I see it all the time...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 22:32, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


why are you still ignoring me on Aim? I never did anything wrong and you said you were going to consider undoing the block on my aim account but you never did, pleae, your like my internet big brother, the one I turn to for help and stuff, (internet wise) and i really miss our chats. Also it links to BP as I can ask you for advice on what to do on BP when stuff comes up. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

I see you editing, but your not responding --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

because i clearly have nothing to say to you, sorry! -- MAGNEDETH 20:09, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

well theres 2 things you can say either,

YES MAX, i dont wanna be mean to you, youve done nothing wrong, so theres no reason for me to ignore you


explain why your not talking to me on Aim, cos your previous reason wasnt true, I never said anything about you. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

Or he can just ignore you. YAY!DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Ignoring is also a possibility, though at least I'd find it quite rude if I asked somebody about a certain thing without getting a reply. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 20:19, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Then you obviously dont know max, or anything about IPGL. Good day sir.DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

dcm Ignoring is rude and 100% childish, why would you suggest doing that? --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

annoying the crap out of someone so much they block you on AIM makes YOU rude and childish (though i dont exactly know if Deth blocked you for that, though, i wouldnt doubt it) but ignoring someone is also known as "turning the other cheek" as in, its a polite way of saying "go away".DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

Well cant he say his reasons, I know 100% there is no reason for me to be ignored, he never said I was annoying, and it came across to me he enjoyed talking about Nascar and stuff. PLEASE DETH, THERE IS NO REASON TO CONTINUE IGNORING ME. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

Hey Admin

U might want to put the relinking of AG episodes as part of the ongoing work due to the Ranger episode split. That is unless u give me the link to the page--KukiTalk 00:34, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

uh...i have no idea what youre talking about, sorry. im not an anime person.. -- MAGNEDETH 00:35, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

On the mainpage, there's the ongoing work section. Gimme the page and I'll add it--KukiTalk 00:37, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

that doesnt really qualify as ongoing work. thats more like a project. ongoing work is stuff we do all the tie, like TTE making pretty new templates every couple weeks. should also be noted, i dont do anime, except the original series, he he. -- MAGNEDETH 00:40, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Deleted page

Thanks for deleting it, as you saw, I merged it together with my other page and wanted it deleted. Unfortunatly, it was getting late and I didn't know how to put the deletion tag on it so I left it.--MisterE13 21:44, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

its alright. it didnt redirect from anything, so, might was well delete it. a delete tag is simply {{delete}} -- MAGNEDETH 23:56, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

TTE told me to talk to you here, so if you go to User Talk:TTEchidna#About the Poké-Power..., can you answer my question? ht14 05:19, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

huh, dont know why he rcommended me, im not really a TCG master. best bets are Nate, Cipher, and Pikablu. -- MAGNEDETH 05:26, 3 December 2008 (UTC)


Sorry about that. Thought it was a vandal move. Didn't know ^^; But if it's a blank page, shouldn't it be deleted? --ケンジガール 05:28, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

hard to say. Blu didnt delete it, and hes usually the one who makes decisions like that. i dont suppose its hurting anything as it is. -- MAGNEDETH 05:30, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

A couple things

  1. When you archived Template talk:Welcome, you forgot to take away the "Archives" section from the page of Archive 2.
  2. There should be a space between "Archive" and "2" in the archive's title.

Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 23:15, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

i didnt forget, i just screwed it up. also, there doesnt HAVE to be a space, its not a policy. -- MAGNEDETH 23:20, 4 December 2008
I know, but it looks better with the space. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 23:21, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
i dont think anyone is going to care.. -- MAGNEDETH 23:22, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Fine. But I have another question to ask you: How come, sometimes when you reply to comments, you remove the (UTC) part in the time stamp? Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 23:23, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
he he, i was wondering when someone would finally ask me that. in my resolution, (the classic 1024x768) sometimes the UTC goes rouge and creates a line break. its extremely annoying, so, given the opportunity, i delete it. -- MAGNEDETH 23:35, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

RE: Please

I actually haven't done anything wrong (with the user page to many edit stuff). The clock ticked over to the next day which means I haven't done to many edits. If you don't believe me check my talk page. Thanks.-- Jebus4evaTALK 01:05, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

perhaps. but, your general lack of mainspace contribs is concerning. be aware. -- MAGNEDETH 01:06, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

I sort of have a problem with that stuff aswell, and it's not the rules that are my problem. You see I live in Australia and this site goes by U.S. time, so how will I know when the time swithes over to the next day and stuff like that? Please reply on my talk page. Thanks.--MysteryHeff? TALK 01:09, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually, the site goes by UTC. If you want to make sure you stay fine within UTC time, go to your preferences and remove any time-offset for your timezone. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:15, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Userspace Abuse

Mr. Pikastorm edited his Userspace at least three times today but I just saw them almost all in a row but I don't know what template to use so I'm telling you to do it. Look at the recent changes. Thank you. --DialgaRULES 01:30, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Umm, he should only be warned if he edits it more than 3 times. 3 times is fine. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 01:31, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, warn only when there are at least 4 edits. Just for you to know it in the future, the template is {{subst:Userspace warning}}. If it's not the first warning, add "|1" or "|2", for 2nd and 3rd warning, respectively. 4th warning was IMO the ban notification and should not be used by regular users. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 09:16, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Ha! The rules said you're a meanie AND YOU ARE! BTW, that's abuse of power and obstruction of justice and I should report you to TTEchidna and Archaic and Zhen Lin and the President of the United States and we should all gang up and impeach and convict you and remove you from your seat of power! --DialgaRULES 04:04, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Evo triggers

I've slowly started placing the evolution triggers into the evoboxes (such as it was already done in the Nincada/Ninjask/Shedinja one) I've already done the Mantyke/Mantine one as well as the Eevee/Glaceon and Eevee/Leafeon ones I know that the scarf wasn't the best but it'll look out of place if I do all the others. Any other ideas for Feebas/Milotic?--MisterE13 03:38, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

NO. NO HE IS NOT. never will be btw. -- MAGNEDETH 23:56, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Can we please block him forever? He contributes nothing to Bulbapedia and only comes here to start drama. And I find his rap to be inappropriate.

Bet now he's gonna write about me in his rap. --ケンジガール 00:09, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

"Flint (anime)" vs. "Flint (Kanto)"

CoolPikachu! said that the former is what you said the page title of Brock's father should be. But, when the Elite 4 member Flint appears in the anime, "Flint (anime)" won't be enough. So, why do you support "Flint (anime)" rather than "Flint (Kanto)"? Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 21:52 12/20/2008

Pokemon pages

Whom is correct, right?--RexRacer -talk 23:38, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately, it is not. Who, in that context, is the subject. Whom is objective. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 23:40, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Exactly. We aren't talking about Bulbasaur evolving into Venusaur, we are talking about Bulbasaur's evolution, Ivysaur, evolving into Venusaur--RexRacer -talk 23:41, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
And in the instance of Ivysaur being the subject, we use the subjective pronoun who, not the objective pronoun whom. IIMarckus 23:43, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
given im an English class failure, that sounds scientific enough to me to be true. -- MAGNEDETH 23:44, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Now, if you where talking about Venusaur (despite not need it in that case) then, yes, whom would be correct. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 23:46, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Good rule of thumb in these instances: replace “who” and “whom” with “he” and “him.” If it makes sense, it’s correct. “He evolves into Venusaur starting at level 32” vs “Him evolves into Venusaur starting at level 32.” In this case, whom is incorrect. IIMarckus 23:51, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

A Template Question

You know those templates on the bottom of one of my subpages? I was considering making them "official" templates like "Template:SharKing Win" and "Template:SharKing Lose," like DCM has "Template:Evil Cookie." You mind? シャーキング 私に相談してください。 自分の編集を参照してください。 23:24, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

if you make it as a personal subpage, then i think it should be ok, just dont put it in the mainspace. ie: "User:SharKing/battle" or something. you can also make it so that you have one page with two templates on it, but, thats a tad more extensive and i dont have the time to explain it right now. -- MAGNEDETH 23:30, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Template protection

I was asked to see you about this, so here goes:

Why are all the navigation templates protected? They are clearly not complete (as I am making frequent edit requests), or targets for vandalism as many of them are on but a few pages. Would you mind unprotecting some, if not all, of these? I have also reasoned on template talk:items. — THE TROM — 09:49, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

adding color is one thing, but not only does it not conform with our other templates but the pictures are stupid. i think TTE is getting ready to upload a new version anyway. -- MAGNEDETH 04:15, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Update, yes. Soon. Ish. But the Pikachu pictures just aren't doing it for me. I would say a shot of Ash's head. TTEchidna 05:45, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

upload/update; for Ash's head, im sure one is floating around somewhere, if not, we can create one. -- MAGNEDETH 21:13, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Sounds weird how you put it...that is, if you take the image part out and take the head thing literally... ht14 21:14, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Regional Pokémon Leagues

Which table format should I follow, these two or this one, for the Hoenn League? --Kevzo8 03:15, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

id go with the Indigo/Johto one for now. im not sure if were adding the teams in there, and if we do, it wont look so awful. even so, we can add teams later if needed. -- MAGNEDETH 03:18, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
okay. So, shall I do the same for the sinnoh league? --Kevzo8 03:22, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

okay okay. *works works*--Kevzo8 03:26, 3 January 2009 (UTC)


Oh, okay. One problem though: Chocolate said that I shouldn't be doing that either. What can I do if there is a conflict between the format? In some pages, I've noticed there is a mix of bullets being spaced, and ones that aren't. --Bulbapedian - Talk 19:42, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

all bullets get spaced. Chocolate was wrong. if you see them, space'em. -- MAGNEDETH 19:43, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, The Dark Fiddler is telling me that space is something that time shouldn't be wasted on, and Chocolate said that the extra space makes server lag, and that the site may crash if it keeps up. --Bulbapedian - Talk 19:45, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Dark Fid is right, dont go out of your way for them, however, that was merely Choco spewing non-sense. in fact, what Choco said is laughable. so, i will laugh, HAHA! -- MAGNEDETH 19:47, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Umm, why does it matter if bullets are spaced or not? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:48, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
it is neater and easier to read as far as editors go. no, it will not make a visual difference outside, but inside its much neater. besides, its the way its always been, its standard wiki editing. -- MAGNEDETH 02:55, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh. I understand. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:58, 15 January 2009 (UTC)


Can the main characters be moved-protected to sysop? I think it is within reason to do this so that some vandal doesn't come along and move them. Main characters, as well various other things need proper move protection. I can think of the following to be move-protected: Items, Poké balls, Pokémon disambiguation pages, and the game articles. --Bulbapedian - Talk 19:54, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

yea, theyre all on the block, but, we just dont seem to ever get around to them.. -- MAGNEDETH 19:55, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, their associated talk pages need the same protection level. --Bulbapedian - Talk 20:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
That raises an interesting point. If a talk page isn't move protected, but an article is, and someone tries to move the talk page, will the article move too or will it become stranded. Has this happened before, 'DETH? — THE TROM — 05:02, 8 January 2009
i have not seen something like that happen. im inclined to think the talk page would be the only thing moved, given when you move a regular page, the talk does not move with it, it has to be manually moved. -- MAGNEDETH 05:43, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Really? All the talk pages I've moved have gone.... I think.... *checks* Yeah, if a talk page has been created then there's a box to check. Otherwise no problems. — THE TROM — 06:26, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of username policy, the guy in the thread below? Looks familiar... is this allowed or should a reassignment be allowed for the new guy? — THE TROM — 05:14, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
in the long run, yes. but, lets see if "esp" sticks around first...if so, well deal with it then. -- MAGNEDETH 05:25, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Blissey Trivia

I'm new to this Wiki thing. I read the manual of style and all the stuff, but I think we learn by trying and trying. I wrote something about Blissey, Chansey and Arceus. They all have 255 base exp yield, so they're the Pokémon who could yield more experience in the games.

I guess, however, when you edited what I wrote, the information got wrong, because...

According to the formula here, exp = (a x b x L)/7

So, a Blissey that belongs to a trainer, at level 100, would yield 1,5 x 255 x 100 / 7 = 5464 Lucky egg and the fact of being a foreigner Pokémon is essential information, I guess, to reach that value of 13933, since we would aplly x 1,5 and x 1,7

That was just to show the maximum experience one could get "legally" in the games.

Oh, and sorry if this text wasn't meant to be here, - unsigned comment from Diby esp (talkcontribs)

hmmm, i see. well, no offense, but your grammar wasnt 100% up to par, and i mis-read it. if you want to add that, you can, just be sure to double-check your grammar is all. -- MAGNEDETH 04:54, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


You must be very happy, because, within my research of a Sinnoh Pokédex (for a special reason, I have the National Pokédex), and I saw a Platinum Pokédex, and I know this will please you, Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone have been added to the Sinnoh Pokédex.:-) P.S.:Tell me if you want the address of the Pokédex for Platinum. |\/| | Z Z | |\| G Y 3 Z 03:08, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

its alright, ive known that for a very long time. -- MAGNEDETH 03:23, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Are You Going to Continue with the Sprite Page?

When you have the time, of course. Telme 00:08, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

when i have time, and i havnt done enough mainspace to really give me the mental edge to make it. i restrict myself to one big page update per, say, 200 mainspace edits, and this month, i havnt exactly been on the ball. so, just relax, and ill get to it eventually. -- MAGNEDETH 00:13, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
That's okay, take your time. Telme 05:21, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


I'm sorry but... where it was revealed? --Nick., something to say? 00:03, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

you dont often check the front page, do you.. -- MAGNEDETH 00:04, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
That isn't actual revealing. It's just a hint, which may or may not be true. Jmath 00:06, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
I do but... I agree with Jmath, I don't think that calendar is a proof --Nick., something to say? 00:09, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
the calender is proof. -- MAGNEDETH
Its not like they're saying "ARCEUS". Its jumbled up letters. How can that be proof? Jmath 00:12, 23 January 2009
what other Pokemon related word can you spell with A-R-C-E-U-S? -- MAGNEDETH 00:13, 23 January 2009
I know you can scramble it but its not outright obvious. They didn't even give a shadow of Arceus. Jmath 00:15, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
they dont have to. theyre Nintendo. its confirmed, let it go. -- MAGNEDETH 00:17, 23 January 2009
Yes, the calendar is promotioning Arceus, but they are not saying "Hey! Arceus will be in the next movie!!!!" It's just a calendar with letters, and with that letters we can spell "Arceus" That's all. It doesn't proofs anything --Nick., something to say? 00:19, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
explain to me this. why, on a Movie 12 poster, would they put Arceus' name? just for fun? -- MAGNEDETH 00:20, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Please let's not start an edit war. TTE protected the page, so until more confirmation, I guess we'll need to wait. (Did I write that article for nuttin'?)--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 at 00:51, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
the argument seems to have ended already, but, none-the-less, its taken care of. -- MAGNEDETH 00:53, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


Wow, that was some fast reverting. I thought replacing icons to text with colored background would be more in line with the Pokémon learnsets, and that being sortable that way would make separating the moves useless (as you could easily sort by Physical/Special/Status anyway, which was basically the original separation, but lumping Physical and Special together), but if you're working on a table with similar changes (I suppose), then I guess I just did work you were halfway done improving. But anyway, is there a list of these types of "work in progress" you higher-ups are working on, so I don't end up doing the same thing again? (As in, improving something you were halfway done improving more yourselves) Memo 04:24, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

the backrounds with sortables, that fine, but yes, a completely new template is in the works. so, no need to bother changing the templates. -- MAGNEDETH 04:27, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


I'm not going to revert until TTE says something don't worry. MK 05:10, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

a prototype is a phase before public viewing release. a prototype is the stage of development internally. a beta is a working model in which is used to show people what the product is and how it works. any information seen about a game is beta, not prototype. -- MAGNEDETH 05:17, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Prototype is not a stage. It is a blanket term for any stage of the game before the final. MK 05:18, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
meh, either way, beta refers to the working model, which is where all this jive comes from. prototype is a generic term that doesnt have a pinpointed definition, where as beta instantly refers to a working model. -- MAGNEDETH 05:19, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
That's why I wanted to use it, as a generic term to refer to anything before the final! I'm repeating myself on like 4 pages now heh. MK 05:20, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
well yea, but, a generic term is very unencyclopedic. -- MAGNEDETH 05:21, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
That is why, should we find specific version information, those versions would be given their own pages based on the build date, while these articles would refer to any general information about them:
Prototype n.
1. An original type, form, or instance serving as a basis or standard for later stages.
2. An original, full-scale, and usually working model of a new product or new version of an existing product.
3. An early, typical example.

It's well defined, so that's not the problem. MK 05:22, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

those pages really dont need their own pages per versions. hell, FRLG and Emerald barely have enough to keep they page they have. itd be a waste of time. -- MAGNEDETH 05:25, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
It's an encyclopedia. Everything is given weight equal to its notability, basically. It's not a waste of my time, or anyone's, if it strives for accuracy. MK 05:27, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
youre absolutely right, but the equality of notability on beta versions seriously pales in comparison to, well, just about everything else. i love beta goodies just as much as the next guy, but, cmon, theres better things to work on. -- MAGNEDETH 05:31, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
It was a small amount of work, and I did almost all of it, when it was reverted. :( But anyways I'm done. MK 05:34, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Assistance needed

Forgive me for not knowing this, but could you assist me in making the VA table "roundy," as you put it on the forums? I can't figure out how to make it work. The link is right here. Thanks. --PAK Man Talk 20:26, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

yea, ill check it out. btw, why no AIM? -- MAGNEDETH 20:27, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
