I am made of metal,
My magnets gleam,
I am perpetual,
I keep this site clean.

There's been rumblings of too much non-pedia discussion around here, so in the best interest of on-topic discussion, if you want to tell me something personal, or just plain off-topic, send me a Personal Message (PM) on the Bulbagarden Forums.

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

Apology Accepted?

Magnedeth, upon realizing how wrong my actions toward you and all the other sysop of the pedia, I would like to apologize for how antagonistically I have acted towards you. Please find it in your heart to forgive me.

Much♥, Lapras 03:59, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

i dont hold grudges, so if you can prove to me youve changed, i will forgive you. -- MAGNEDETH 04:17, 15 June 2009 (UTC)


Hey, I saw that Maverick Nate is on Hiatus and it said to redirect stuff to you. I found some Trading Cards on the official Japanese Pokémon Website, and I couldn't find a couple on here. The ones I found were Anime Characters Pokémon. There are two pages for that one, just scroll down and click 2. Also, for the Anime Characters Pokémon the Pichu cards are animated. Second, I found the Movie 12 Pokémon Cards. I hope those are of some use. -MasterKenobi 23:33, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

to quote Nate himself
 All TCG questions go to Nuva-kal! 
me and Nate figured the big text would be enough, but i guess not. -- MAGNEDETH 05:45, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
I didn't consider that a TCG "question". Thanks though.-MasterKenobi 15:37, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
well, youre showing me pictures of TCG info, what kind of question was it?? -- MAGNEDETH 17:55, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
I posted it on Nuva-kal's page, so done. -MasterKenobi 18:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I've spoted a guy that is making a mess around here deleting things *specially* from the latin america spanish dub related stuff so I wanted to ask you for help! If you could check him and... I don't know! Do something he has no reason or power to do such horrible things! His user name is Ash Ketchum Peru! I've been undoing his edits! please do something :D THANKS! (i don't mean to be rude or anything ;) but your an admin right? i totally forgot and i can't check that right know since I'm undoing this guy stuff)YukitoOoO 17:18, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

i dont know anything about Latin dub, so ive given him an edit flood block, but someone is going to have to step-in and help. really not my area. -- MAGNEDETH 17:29, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
OH MY GOD! Thank you sooo much! LOL I was about to go nuts here! I really apreciate it! he had absolutely no reason for doing this, only that he hates anything that has to do with the latin american dub, you can actually see this for your self in youtube, but he uses another name he is "Maestro POkemon peru" he had another acount there that was like "pokemonmasterperu" but got suspended for some bad things I think, just like what eh was doin here, he used to see latinamerican pokemon videos just to offend others and the dub! Agh! this guy! but, wait a minute, why only 2 hours? whe he comes back his going to keep doing the same thing! YukitoOoO 17:36, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
well, im obligated to give him a chance, but if he does it again when he returns, then we up the ante. -- MAGNEDETH 17:37, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh Ok I see, thanks!!! And you're going to block his IP adress too right? YukitoOoO 17:41, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
no, we dont block IPs unless its a super bad vandal. blocking one IP can potentially block an entire ISP, which means many people would be blocked from the site. -- MAGNEDETH 18:43, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Is anyone allowed to welcome new users? This may sound like a stupid question to you, but... --CUBONE PWNS (Planet CuboneBone Club) THE VERY BEST PAGE! 22:45, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Anyone is. Just use this: {{subst:welcome}}. Copy and paste that, and done. ht14 00:28, 28 July 2009 (UTC)


i am sorry, i didn't realize that i was wrong. but for future reference, what exactly is a userspace and a mainspace? i have no idea, i am new at this stuff. Empath-Silvio 15:56, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

i think i got it. thanks anyway Empath-Silvio 15:56, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
well, just to be clear, userspace is anything that starts with user, like my page or your page. and main space is anything that does not have a pre-fix, like Magnemite, EP030, Ethan, etc.... -- MAGNEDETH 16:01, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

why have you given me a warning?

i'm new to bulbapedia.Why cant i edit my userspace? - unsigned comment from Solidstate (talkcontribs)

You can, But you have to Balance out your Userspace edits with your Mainspace edits. You were editing your Userspace a lot. and please sign ~~~~ after your comment. ---> 223Dåv]d 07:22, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon Simulator

Why did you destroy the Pokémon Simulator article that I wrote? -from Pokemaster5000

not written to spec, possibly not notable, and you spelled Pokémon wrong. also, sign comments with 4 tildes (~) please. -- MAGNEDETH 21:18, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't know how to put that in the article name -from Pokemaster5000

when you joined the site, you got a talk page and at the top of it is a Welcome full of every piece of information you could ever want. i highly suggest you read this before creating any articles. -- MAGNEDETH 21:23, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

ok thanks -from Pokemaster5000 it tells me to redirect how do i do that? and please tell me if the MoS tells me that too. Pokemaster5000 21:29, 12 August 2009 (UTC)Pokemaster5000


I have been using the preview button , the reason I have been editing my page so often is because i am a new user and wish too add templates as i find them(Also they're minor edits unless i forget to check the box)

one other question is, I have created a template (i liek shiny mudkipz), should i put this as a subpage such as User:Titan|Template:Shiny Mudkipz or where - unsigned comment from Titan (talkcontribs)

bearing in mind, a fancy userpage is far from mandatory around here. and even then, its possible to add everything in one edit. also, even minor edits count against your daily userspace edit count. the trick is to not just use, but abuse the preview button, and make normal mainspace edits to sort of drown your userspace edits. also, sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) so your signature will show. -- MAGNEDETH 19:53, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Oops sorry again

I've put the template here, is that right or am i asking the wrong person --TiTAn 23:24, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Re: Look,

I've been trying to keep the numbers down and I've been trying to combine large numbers of edits. The problem is that many times I try to fix a problem and when I look at the preview, its fine. But then sometime later I look at it and it isn't working again. --Swampert = awesome (bleh) 13:26, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

well, thats not really an excuse. but if you can make some good edits, ill reduce the 30 days of abuse to 1 week. -- MAGNEDETH 18:17, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Max King as Abuse

Can you mark Max King as "abuse". You may have thought he was blocked, but no. Evkl unblocked him saying that "There are no universal bans". Max King doesn't do anything but edit his user page. So as long as he's here, can you mark him as abuse so he'll start doing something useful? --ケンジガール 20:21, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

id love to just as easily ban him myself, but i talked to evkl about this and abuse sounds like the best we do for now. ill take care of it. -- MAGNEDETH 20:23, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I haven't added anything to my page for a while, I think I just finished off the Kanto bit, and I am waiting to add more, but haven't found anywhere to edit yet so haven't added anymore. I was thinking of 3 mainspace edits for 1 User page edit. How does that sound? Max King 22:30, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
thats fine, make 30 edits this month, and ill let you make 10 userspace. -- MAGNEDETH 22:35, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Why in blocks of 30? I'm not on all that much, and there's not much to do, I could make 3 edits, maybe 6, and then get 1 or 2 user page edits? I just don't think i will ever be able to do 30 in a month? And why does it have to be in a month? If I did 25 in one month, then 5 in the next, would they carry over? Can't we deal in smaller denominations, instead of 30 MSE for 10 USE, why not just 3 MSE for 1 USE? Max King 22:42, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
That rule applies to everyone, not just you. Also, you edited your user page on August 18th. That isn't a while. That's less than a week. --ケンジガール 22:44, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Does it carry over, say i only did 20 this month, and then did 10 in September, would I get 10 USE? Max King 22:48, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
The point mostly is to start editing the mainspace. No one is going to sit and look at your contributions, and then ban you for not "doing 30." That would be a waste of time spent on something useful, and bad adminship by singling out a single user. Just try your best to add to pages, and I'll make sure that no one blocks you again without a real good reason, kay? MaverickNate 01:33, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

If you could plz.

Tell me what the definition of sigexpand is. I've Looked and looked, and I have absolutely no idea what it is. Uncyclopedia {which does have sig expand defined} work's much differently then Bulba does. ShinyPika

its entirely possible our wiki doesnt support that command at all. ive attempted to use some span codes from other wikis with no success. as for actually coding the span into the system, i dont have the knowledge or access to do so. -- MAGNEDETH 05:59, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Can you give me something to do

Like a task or something? I can't find anything to do. Max King 12:23, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Can you protect my userpage.Because, I don`t want a second other User to blank my page.The AURA Wolf 18:08, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

You do realize that if he protects it, you won't be able to edit it either, right?--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 18:11, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
yea, that kid is in abuse now anyway, he cant edit anything userspace. -- MAGNEDETH 18:39, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok,Don`t do.I had to give it a second thought.The AURA Wolf 20:19, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Sprite trivia

Since apparently about half of the sprite trivia we took out over the past two days counts as being acceptable trivia by your standards, where should we draw the line for what counts and what doesn't? If it mentions anything about the anime or manga we keep it? Because either way it's still sprite trivia. And one of the best examples is Charmander's page. I don't think that's so notable, since it's only in a single sprite. You said something that "documented" doesn't get removed. Documented, meaning? Which goes back to where we need to draw the line on what counts. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:49, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

that is a great question. basically the problem i had was that 100% of sprite trivia was deleted, and thats wrong. surely some of it is notable. and even so, its only trivia, it isnt hurting anyone. but that particular example is referenced in the Manga a few times, so yea, its from more than one media. for the most part, some color changes are negligible, but when a Pokemon has noticeable physical differences, then why not make a note of it? basically, Sketch said "delete it all" but he didnt check with anyone, and i didnt really like that. so yes, a lot was useless, but some of it is im going to scan it all in my free time to keep the good stuff. -- MAGNEDETH 03:12, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Alright. Because it's not the first time somebody's said to try to get rid of sprite trivia, and we didn't have anything to do at the time, so we started on that finally. R.A. Hunter Blade 01:43, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Some userspace edits

I made 6 edits yesterday, and under the ratio of 3-1 which we said, can I now please have 2 User Space edits. I need to make frequent updates, so I don't get lost or forget to add something in to my userpage, so may I please have my 2 edits now? Can I be taken off of abuse, you can trust me, I promise that I will only make a Userspace edit after 3 good mainspace edits. You can trust me, and if you don't feel like you can trust me, then you could monitor it, so I can prove that you can trust me?

Also, although I am owed 2 edits, I think I could add it all in just 1 edit. But that's because at the moment I only have 2 days to add, but it builds up and then i forget stuff. So may I please have my 2 edits now. Max King 12:31, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

He said after you make 30, you can have 10. --ケンジガール 17:30, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
But I will lose track of what I've done on my game :( Please, it;s the same ratio, please, show some compasion. 30-10=3-2=6-2, I've done 1/5 of the task, so can't I have 1/5 of the reward? Max King 19:43, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Write it down on Word or something... --ケンジガール 19:47, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


Why do you hate the Pokémon anime? It's so cool! TOMMY-SAN (MyTalk) 22:09, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

to specify, i hate any anime that isnt the original series. May is a personality void, Max is annoying, and Dawn is both annoying and ridiculously stupid. add to that Ash being a technically horrible trainer. and they dont battle enough. too many contests these days. i want to see gym battles, not fancy bubbles. and finally, the voice change removed any shred of nostalgia the series held to that point, and it was all over. -- MAGNEDETH 04:49, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree but I find Dawn less anoying than May. Also Nobody but Ash has any good Pokémon. Random Chaos Was here 15:20, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Party Templates

So I noticed you've been changing some of the templates. How much is going to be permanently changed for the default templates? I'm asking so that I don't screw anything up for when I'm re-arranging everything. I'm going to change everything to make it more compact after I finish most of the Gen. III and some Gen. IV parties. Also, for the templates here, do any of the Gym Leaders' or Silver's templates need to be changed? I'm keeping those for when HGSS is out, and I want them to be right the first time they get put up. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:12, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

the style were implementing right now is the new norm, HOWEVER, dont start doing them just yet, its like a "beta release" right now and TTE will soon be installing the show/hide ability. after that itll be the new standard. -- MAGNEDETH 02:14, 4 September 2009
Okay. I'll keep doing what I've been doing, and then eventually update everything when I'm done. Unless somebody beats me to it, but then I'd be out of things that I can actually do. R.A. Hunter Blade 03:44, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
nonsense, theres always something to do, like these templates, i think its safe to start doing them. -- MAGNEDETH 03:45, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I meant things that I know how to do and that I can actually find info on, but whatever. Any idea when TTE'll be done with the updates? R.A. Hunter Blade 20:41, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
well, as previously stated, theyre safe to use now, you can start doing them. -- MAGNEDETH 20:42, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Alright. I'll have to mess around with them a little to get used to it. I'll start doing it like that when I go through templates. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:49, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
these are much easier than the old ones, so just copy and paste one onto a section, mess with it, and yull see how it all works. -- MAGNEDETH 20:50, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I noticed. I was getting annoyed by the different codings for PartyBody22 and PartyBody23. The coding for some of the things were messed up and some things were the opposite... R.A. Hunter Blade 20:55, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
hmmm, idk, no one else has had much of a problem. -- MAGNEDETH 20:56, 4 September 2009

Some numbers went a certain way, others went another... anyways, the 22 and 23 were just the style of party body. The first number is how many rows (top and bottom) of Pokémon, so if it's 3 or under the number is a 1, if it's 4 or more, then it's a 2. You probably already know, so I don't have to explain it. It might have also just been that I expected certain things to be ordered one way but they weren't. It doesn't really matter though. I learned to deal with it. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:02, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

yea, instead of having 4 Pokemon be 3 across one below, its 2x2. and 5 is 3x2 with the bottom 2 Olympic rings style. -- MAGNEDETH 21:03, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Yep. I'm trying it out with Tabitha's page right now, unless we don't have a light or dark fire color. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:07, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
we have a light and dark of every color, so dont worry about it. in fact, if you encounter one that doesnt exist, inform someone. -- MAGNEDETH 21:08, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Oh crap. Where are the genders? Don't we need those? Or are they not important any more? R.A. Hunter Blade 21:10, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
just put "gender=male/female" and for Pokemon that have different gender sprites, add "gendersprite=male/female" after it. for Pokemon with no gender, add nothing. -- MAGNEDETH 21:12, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm... alright. The reason I'm spazzing is because I'm using Janine's "last changes" thing to figure out what to change, and genders weren't added to her new template. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:15, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
hmm, i did Janine, so prob a mistake on my part. -- MAGNEDETH 21:16, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
That's fine. As for items, I'm guessing I just put item=berry/other, right? R.A. Hunter Blade 21:18, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
simply put "held=Sitrus Berry" or "held=Scope Lens" for examples. no linking required. -- MAGNEDETH 21:19, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Okay. That'll be easier than all of the sprite1=, type1=2, type12=Dark, type22=Water.... I think it was the types that annoyed me the most. The thing I was talking about earlier was the 12 and 22. I expected the 2 to always be first, because that's what number in line the Pokémon is, and then expected the type 1 and 2 to be second. It just seemed simpler. That's my opinion though, so nobody else really had trouble with it. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:24, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

i hated it too, thats why i really like this new design. and we can use the internal Pokemon template separately to make individual Pokemon two. so we accidentally/purposely create two templates at once. -- MAGNEDETH 21:27, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Nice. This'll still take a while to get used to doing, but oh well. All I was really doing for the re-arranging was making it slightly easier to edit if they needed to be. That's why I broke everything up so that it was like:
  • sprite
  • Pokémon
  • gender
  • level
  • number of types
  • types
  • ability
  • item

And so on. I did that so the already confusing coding could be easily navigated instead of having it all mashed together. Really the only stuff I haven't touched is Blue's page because it's already so freaking huge. For ability I assume I just put ability=Intimidate. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:33, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

right. just look at the ones i did on other pages. ive organized mine to make more sense when editing. i did Lt. Surge which containes 3 generations, and then see Volkner for Gen IV. -- MAGNEDETH 21:36, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. I'll ask if I have any more questions other than this last one: for templates that have Shadow Pokémon, such as the Miror B. ones I had started a little, how do we say they're Shadow? Just a note at the bottom like Cold changed it to, or how it used to be like Lovrina still has? R.A. Hunter Blade 21:40, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
probably the one parameter i havnt messed with, so i dont know. -- MAGNEDETH 21:43, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Ehhhh, I think after finishing the first party for Tabitha, I'll mess with it. I probably won't actually change anything yet, but still. It's good to try. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:47, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Side game

Side game See talk page please. Many questions not answered... especially the first one... ht14 19:40, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

i dont really do side games, so idk. -- MAGNEDETH 19:43, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
It's fine, I'm just worried about curved edges... ht14 19:48, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
oh that, well, ask TTE. -- MAGNEDETH 19:50, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Alright... I just don't want to bother him... ht14 19:52, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
well, im telling you to bother him. -- MAGNEDETH 19:53, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
K. XD ht14 19:54, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
The final thing then is to try to fix up {{HeldItems}} regarding the Frontier parser which I recently added. The star (*) isn't working out for me, since I have to add it to re1, rse1, and se1... is this something you could help me with? ht14 19:58, 8 September 2009
hmmm, id suggest TTE again. -- MAGNEDETH 19:59, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

2 things

Route 47 is confirmed by Serebii (near Safari Zone). Second, Serebii also confirmed HM05 as Whirlpool (well duh...Whirl Islands). We need a new parser for that then... ht14 02:36, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

im not concerned about "if" its confirmed, because i know it is, but we cant have an article stating "its in the game" i we want actual details. the page is only protected from new users, so if you want to have at it, go for it. as for Whirlpool, well find a way to deal with it. -- MAGNEDETH 02:38, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah... I'll leave it alone for now. I still don't have the game yet, and I'll just wait for Serebii to give out more info. ht14 02:47, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Actually, you're wrong. Route 47 (no, I don't use redlink here) cannot be created, it says this: "This title has been protected from creation by TTEchidna. The reason given is "I should be there by then..."." UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 18:26, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
then i guess TTE re-protected it. i protected it yesterday from new users. -- MAGNEDETH 18:27, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Johto Dex

Serebii just finished with the Johto Dex listing and I posted the link and specific details on the Johto Dex talk page so take a look when you have a minute. -Tyler53841 18:21, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

ill check it out now. -- MAGNEDETH 18:25, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks and I also think that the trivia piece on that page needs to be changed or removed since it looks like the same ol'Johto dex, just with a minor upgrade with Generation IV Pokémon after reading over it again. -Tyler53841 18:35, 11 September 2009
ill look into it. hell, after i finish fixing it up there wont be any reason to keep it protected anymore really. -- MAGNEDETH 18:36, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for you help and just so you know I fully support your decision to keep that page protected a little longer due to the rush. I'm sure you'll be able to update the New Pokédex page as well, but anyway this is the last I will say on this subject. -Tyler53841 19:10, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
well i dont really have the time to get to the other Pokedex right now, but maybe later, anyone can do that one, its not protected. -- MAGNEDETH 19:11, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Right, I did that and the only thing I did was a minor update and removed information that looked off-topic to me, but may have some potential as a trivia piece elsewhere. Also when you get a chance the infobox for the Generation II Elite Four needs an overhaul. -Tyler53841 20:05, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
well, when more people come online itll be a bit easier to get everything done. -- MAGNEDETH 20:06, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

sounds fine. question is, how will he act when he returns? -- MAGNEDETH 02:27, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

thats great and all, but your brother still isnt getting his userspace privileges back. also, please sign your name with 4 tildes, not just 3. -- MAGNEDETH 19:38, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yea sorry, i just had to change a sprite number from 284 to 384 (silly typo, didnt even notice it when i did the show preview ><). just curious, why is customizing your userspace and editing it such a big deal here? on Guild Wars wiki, no1 ever commented on it. Volsak 21:59, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm kinda wondering the same thing, dude. What the heck...PokeBrawler 05:21, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

well, excuse us for wanting our users to contribute to our site. this isnt myspace or facebook. regardless, i can make a ton of edits to my userpage in one go thanks to the preview button. thems the rules. -- MAGNEDETH 05:24, 17 October 2009 (UTC)


I never said I didn't get them from and I just wanted people to see what the gyms look like in HeartGold and SoulSilver. - unsigned comment from GymLeader Dalton (talkcontribs)

well, wherever you got them from, THEY got them from Serebii. -- MAGNEDETH 21:53, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

how do you know that? they might have the game and played as a boy with Celebi and taken a screenshot at the same place.- unsigned comment from GymLeader Dalton (talkcontribs)

because theyre the exact same screens as from Serebii! and besides, for a purpose made image for BP, a Bulbasaur would make much more sense. -- MAGNEDETH 22:01, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

maybe they don't have a Bulbasaur and took the picture themselves on No$GBA - unsigned comment from GymLeader Dalton (talkcontribs)

im not allowing those images on the pages. also, sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) please. -- MAGNEDETH 22:04, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: Hi


After these are complete, "my profile", I don't think I will be editing anything anymore. (except for the "next episode", which i will edit every Saturday...)

Btw, wat's a Mainspace? --Ruixiang95 04:38, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

mainspace is any page that does NOT start with "User" or "User talk" so this page, or you user page do NOT count. but pages like Magnemite, Magnet Pull, EP030, or Zero, and any page that doesnt have a pre-fix on it, those are "mainspace" pages. -- MAGNEDETH 04:42, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
But I think my userpage is about me (profile) only.
Using a mainspace will create more and more pages that is not needed for others' use.

And sometimes, the time will run out, resulting in the loss of many info. --Ruixiang95 04:46, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

im not sure youre familiar how our wiki works. youre not allowed to edit your own pages as much as you want, its against the rules. (its all explained in the warning i gave you) so to be honest, unless you have the intention of editing the site usefully, then youre probably going to get in even more trouble.-- MAGNEDETH 04:50, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

ok, i will not be editing anything anymore. To prevent from editing frequently, the "next episode" part will be deleted. Sorry and Thanks! --Ruixiang95 04:54, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Trancebuddah/Santos perma

But that's just me. Intimidating behavior and harassment + Abusing multiple accounts. --ケンジガール 03:53, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

yea i know, but looking at their edits, they did edit legitimately for a short period of time, and even though they said the same thing, they dont come back as the same person. oh well, if its something else, they can e-mail us. -- MAGNEDETH 03:54, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, guess you are right. --ケンジガール 03:55, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
and by that i mean, ill perma-them anyway. i just wanted to check out the situation first. -- MAGNEDETH 03:56, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Gym Leader Sprites

Hold on a second. We are trying to keep all of the leader sprites as the non-moving png images. I spoke to TTE and he said he wanted to keep the consistincy with Platinum but since they do not loop we should keep it as the non-moving. Additionally, we want to keep the animations to a minimum as it slows down computers, and on top of that the some of the animated sprites are horrible for example, Brocks. So I hope that clears things up a bit. –MasterKenobi 04:18, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

you see, it bothers me when no one brings this up to me... *stares at TTE* -- MAGNEDETH 04:32, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
I take full responsibility for this. I really should have told you earlier, sorry. –MasterKenobi 04:35, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
eh, i dont blame you. i dont really blame anyone. -- MAGNEDETH 04:40, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
Good. ^^ I am watching all those pages like a hawk so, I think we should be good. If you see any being changed again though, please fix them. Thanks! –MasterKenobi 04:41, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
thankfully its not a big deal if we forget one, but yes, now i know (and knowing is half the battle). -- MAGNEDETH 04:50, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Party templates

Could you change the default ability to Ability unknown, instead of No ability? It sounds weird. tc²₆tc26 05:18, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

i wondered that myself. i figured TTE would do that naturally, so i guess he had a reason, ill ask him. -- MAGNEDETH 05:47, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Userspace warnings

What's the template to issue warnings? I'm stupid and keep forgetting them. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:19, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

1. {{subst:userwarning}}
2. {{subst:userwarning|1}}
3. {{subst:userwarning|2}}
4. {{subst:userwarning|3}} - though, before issuing this, get a Bcrat to put them in abuse. no point in telling them theyre privileges are gone when they arent.
all the templates are pre-signed, so you dont even have to sign your name. -- MAGNEDETH 00:22, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I knew it had a 'u' somewhere in there, but couldn't remember what it was. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:27, 23 September 2009
well, user has a u in it.. -- MAGNEDETH 00:27, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Userspace edits

Hello I was just wondering how many times I had to edit the mainspace pages to be able to edit my userspace page. I have so far only made one mainspace edit. Is it a one for one system? Mistercaso 09:59, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

there is not set number, but lets say 20 mainspace to one userspace. i personally go about 100/1, but i do a lot of editing. -- MAGNEDETH 18:52, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
3 is normally what is allowed before somebody gets a warning. On rare occasions 4 edits can get by when nobody sees it, but I don't recommend trying to do that. It's best to make big edits, or little edits over the course of a few days so that the recent changes don't get flooded by userspace edits. R.A. Hunter Blade 13:40, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Hey, um

Is it OK if I make actual articles out of the redirects Kanto Pokédex, Johto Pokédex, Hoenn Pokédex and Sinnoh Pokédex? I don't want my efforts to go to waste... I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 01:56, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

what would such an article contain? and your efforts dont "go to waste", its all in a matter of just plain 'ol effort. -- MAGNEDETH 01:58, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
Just plain info about the Pokédex (the model deisgn, trivial notes, stuff like that). I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 02:01, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
all that information is located on the Pokédex page. -- MAGNEDETH 02:03, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
We could just cut down the info on that page a little bit and add one of those
Main article: User:CuboneKing kind of links. I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 02:05, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
potentially yes, but it would have to get discussed among other board members first. ill look into it. -- MAGNEDETH 02:06, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your time! I'm back! Alpha CuboneKing 02:07, 28 September 2009 (UTC)


What do you think of this? Pretty neat, huh? Still needs work, and I'm still deciding on whether it's mainspace worthy.... most likely not... still good for referencing though... ht14 22:47, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

not bad, but, its also not roundy! -- MAGNEDETH 22:49, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah... about that... ht14 22:59, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
Is it mainspace-worthy though (assuming I get the edges curved and all)? ht14 23:00, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
idk, thats more of a TTE question. -- MAGNEDETH 23:00, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Not exactly, Werdnae. I made a spelling correction and he undid it, I made all these minor edits and he undid every single one. Obviously I wasn't being as you say "WAY" offended, I was just ticked off because obviously he had started a little bit of a rivalry with me - undoing EVERY edit I made.

I only edited my page once. Why is that bad????????? Kingdonfin 01:17, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

that is true, you did only edit once on the 28th, HOWEVER, since joining the site in January, you have made 2 mainspace edits, and that is against the rules. -- MAGNEDETH 01:25, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Katie50 has a ?

Hi, my name is Kaitie 50 and I've been on bulbapedia since i was in eighth grade and i've been using bulbapedia more often now (considering my dad blocked youtube). Anyways I was wondering what you meant when you said I can't edit my Page? Because I still want to make changes to it considering I'm not done with it yet. And what do you mean the main page other Articles? cause if thats it i've done minor edits and stuff like that. - unsigned comment from Kaitie50 (talkcontribs)

well Katie, as per our userspace policy, we dont want users editing their userpage more than the mainspace pages. you have been editing your userpage more than mainspace pages, so you got warned. just make more edits to main pages and there wont be a problem. -- MAGNEDETH 02:37, 6 October 2009 (UTC)


I wold make this under my userspace unless I though these would be usable so I have two ideas for fairly useable templates I want to run by you and than just tell me whether you think I should put them under my userspace and wait or that they can just come out.

  • Favorite Eeveelution
  • Favorite Item

So deliberate. BrokenMotor 21:28, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

i was under the impression the Eevee one already existed unless someone just custom made one. if you want to make a basic template, just use the {{User Template}}. -- MAGNEDETH 21:33, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah except I need to know how to get in different Item pictures without getting the whole thing changed, any ideas? - unsigned comment from BrokenMotor (talkcontribs)
Put [[File:Bag {{{1|Master Ball}}} Sprite.png|50px]] as the image name. When you put the template on a page you'll write {{template name|item name}}, otherwise it will turn up displaying your favourite item as the Master Ball. The dark lord trombonator 01:44, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

I don't give a damn about your 'regulations' and 'protocols'! What I proclaim is not simply my opinion, it is the voice of a nation! And I will not be silenced by a person with little to no grasp of proper grammar! Mental Dario 08:25, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

The wild Magndeth is fast asleep, so allow me to chime in. I'm also a member of the Editorial Board, and simply love how you moan about grammar yet used the wrong two/too/to. Not the first time I've seen that, by the way. Gotta love the irony. Anyway, what you are doing is harassment, and we can block you for that. Consider this your final warning. —darklordtrom 08:31, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Can I edit again?

I mean like, really. I do it every now and again, and its usually a mistake. Sorry. --Mclena45 22:06, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

You haven't really done anything to prove that you deserve your userpage privileges back. In fact, you haven't done anything since you were put in abuse. Make some contributions to the mainspace. That is anything that's not under User or Talk. --ケンジガール 23:03, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Umm Whats different? You updated the template so whats different?Random Chaos Was here 22:51, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

What's different is they have added a character to the parameters on both the template and the pages, so that it appears normal on the 'pedia, but when the app looks for name=, etc. it can't find it, and so can't display any of the data, rendering it worthless.

Apple hasnt done anything. Apple simply makes the iPhone. its "Bebop Studios" who is stealing our work, and were already thwarting them, and dealing with them on a legal basis. a petition isnt really necessary because its already being dealt with. -- MAGNEDETH 23:59, 15 October 2009 (UTC)


Okay for some reason I can't edit the species pages and I don't know if I'm banned or something so I will just go to you to make the edit. On the Starly page under trivia it says that Starly's line was the only line that could learn Brave Bird via level up (just Starly, not Staravia or Staraptor, I checked.) but now that is no longer the case due to Ho-oh. Edit it how you want, say it was in D&P or delete it altogether just though you should know. And if you know why I can't edit the species pages I would be interested to hear that as well. Peace. BrokenMotor 04:51, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

all the species pages are protected for reasons i dont feel like explaining, but ill look into the trivia at hand. -- MAGNEDETH 05:17, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
In that case the Staraptor page I can edit so that may have to get a new level of protection. BrokenMotor 21:06, 19 October 2009
indeed it did. -- MAGNEDETH 21:08, 19 October 2009 (UTC)


There's nothing to edit on the mainspace. It's all filled up. And, I can't upload images for some pages. Sandshrew-san

the mainspace is miles from "filled up" and i know this because on the main page we have "Ongoing work" and its full of things that need to be done. imagine that! also, please sign your comments with 4 tildes and use the preview button if you want to make a lot of edits. -- MAGNEDETH 19:25, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

I have been editing pages like the Sabrina and Corsola page too.

and I have received messages like this before.

--WeedleMaster 17:28, 25 October 2009 (UTC)User:WeedleMaster

well that does sound like a solid argument. problem is, youre not entirely right. since September 8th, the last warning you recieved, you have made only two mainspace edits. one fo Sabrina, and one to Corsola. then you followed it up with 4 userspace edits. so thats 2 mainspace to 4 userspace. thats not enough. so, if you dont start making more mainspace contributions, you might find yourself with another warning. also, it is against the rules to put a line break for your signature, so please dont do that. -- MAGNEDETH 17:37, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Image Upgrading?

I see a lot of screenshots from games released in North America that are still in Japanese. Is there any way to create a project (not a huge one like Project Games or COD) to try and get as many images as possible in English? Thanks. Pokemon486 01:57, 27 October 2009

which images? if youre referring to HGSS images, the game isnt in officially in English yet and therefor we physically cant. -- MAGNEDETH 01:58, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
"games released in North America that are still in Japanese" Pokemon486 02:16, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
like what? -- MAGNEDETH 02:18, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Well, for one example, transferring Pokémon to Pal Park. Pokémon Diamond and Pearl came out two years ago, and we don't have one English picture of a transfer. And I've actually seen some Generation III screenshots in Japanese. It's been over 4 years since the last Generation III game came out! Pokemon486 02:24, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
given the fact that the games are originally Japanese, and fans know that, i really dont think this is a concern. you can upload english screen if you want, but its really not a concern. ie: we dont need a project dedicated to it. -- MAGNEDETH 02:26, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
I think I will. Pokemon486 02:28, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
bear in mind, we only want top quality images, .png format only. some people upload shots where they take a picture off of their DS with a camera, that doesnt fly here. -- MAGNEDETH 02:30, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Re: Hi

So on My talk page you said that I could not have official templates on there because it adds categories and a table of contents and what-not. What if I just use the


code? Also, what are the rules/limits for editing your userspace exactly? Thanks, Z311. --Zelda311 00:11, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

no, a TOC is fine, but you had an official glitch Pokemon template which auto-categorized your page as a glitch Pokemon. as for our userspace policy, its all right here. -- MAGNEDETH 02:21, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Alright, but couldn't I just copy the actual code from the template rather than using the curly bracklets? It won't add categories. --Zelda311 02:34, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
yes. -- MAGNEDETH 03:29, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Thankyou, and what's the link to the old picture of the glitch Pokémon I updated? It's like File:User:Zelda311 personal image now or something. --Zelda311 04:22, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Stolen articles?

While looking around for information to complete some incomplete articles, I stumbled across this website: This page has most (if not all) of its information taken directly from Bulbapedia, including a copy of the home page (a very recent copy), and several articles that are direct copies of Bulbapedia articles. It does not give any credit to Bulbapedia (only mentioned by accident). The site alone has only two articles (the other one is blank, however). I am unsure (and for that matter, unable) to take any action in this situation, so I will leave it to you to decide what to do. --Pokemon486 09:11, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

God these noobish fans. "Best starter choice is Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Pikachu"... pah. TTEchidna 09:52, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
So what can we do about this? --Pokemon486 10:01, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Nothing, someone * reverted EVERYTHING. And replaced it with the word Fail* -->223david 10:51, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Lolwut!? I don't think TTE would do that...--ForceFire 10:55, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
He might. I probably woulda done it if somebody had said to do something and nothing happened. R.A. Hunter Blade 13:04, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Haha I just saw the page. Pokemon486 14:13, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

2 Questions

1: How can I make my self a more efficient user, all the trivial involved edits I have made have been reverted and I'm useless at everything else! please help.

2. On the forum do I have to make an account or do I use this one.

3 Are you allowed images in you signature.

Vespitomb> 19:00, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

1. on the main page we have an "Ongoing work" section thats filled with things that need to be done.
2. you have to create a new, separate account to use the forums.
3. no. and btw, thats 3 questions. -- MAGNEDETH 19:02, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

How I've Been Doing

I was just checking in to see how I'm doing on Bulbapedia. I've made one new page (and tons of edits) since I lost my userpage privilages:

You should be very proud of me. Lol jk. I'm not asking for them back - I just want to know how I'm doing. LugiaPwns 17:12, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

youve done some good work, though we dont really need page based on fanon terms. we have an entire page devoted to that. otherwise, keep up the good work, and maybe ill give them back sooner than later. and dont ask, or itll get longer. -- MAGNEDETH 19:09, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
How many links can I put in my sig? It won't let me because there isn't sufficient space.
I also had a few questions:
  • 1. How can I put a line through writing?
  • 2. Why could you and TTE and Pokémaniac have images in your signatures before?
  • 3. What is a sandbox on a userpage?
  • 4. How can I make subpages on my namespace?
  • 5. Have I been doing good edit-wise?

Thanks. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 19:59, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

  • put that sig in your preferences.
1. <s>text</s> is all you have to do.
2. back in the day, images were allowed, but overtime people started abusing the ability, so they were disallowed.
3. a sandbox is a place for people to test things like templates and codes.
4. a subpage is just your name with a slash. User:LugiaRocks/Sandbox would be a subpage sandbox for you. however, because youre still in abuse, youre not allowed to do that right now.
5. ok, but try not to chat on talk pages as much. and you should really use the preview button more. -- MAGNEDETH 20:06, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. But, is there any way I can make more space for my sig? -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 20:11, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
i dont understand what you mean. -- MAGNEDETH 20:15, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I mean this:
I can't input all of the coding of my signature into the option in preferences.
  • I want this signature: '''''-'''''[[Lugia (Pokémon)|<span style="color:silver">'''Lugia'''</span>]][[User:LugiaRocks|<span style="color:green">'''Rocks'''</span>]] ([[User talk:LugiaRocks|<span style="color:blue"><sup>''Talk''</sup></span>]] ★ [[Special:Contributions/LugiaRocks''|<span style="color:red"><small>''Edits''</small></span>]])
  • But, if I put it in I only goes up to this: '''''-'''''[[Lugia (Pokémon)|<span style="color:silver">'''Lugia'''</span>]][[User:LugiaRocks|<span style="color:green">'''Rocks'''</span>]] ([[User talk:LugiaRocks|<span style="color:blue"><sup>''Talk''</sup></span>]] ★ [[Special:Contributions/LugiaRocks
    • Which ends up like this: -LugiaRocks (Talk ★ [[Special:Contributions/LugiaRocks

Is there a limit to how much characters can go into the box? -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 20:20, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

yes, i would remove the excessive bold/italic marks from the dash at the beginning of your sig. then it should fit. -- MAGNEDETH 20:24, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
K, thanks. I tried - it still doesn't fit. It isn't that important so I'll stay with my current one. Also how can one make a subpage? I know what it is but how can I make it. I'm just curious and just for reference. I couldn't make one anyway. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 20:27, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
i already told you... -- MAGNEDETH 20:30, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
You just told me what it is. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 01:49, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
no offense, but youre a bit dense arent you. i told you what it was, but by using a "visual aid" i was getting the impression you would be able to understand how to do it as well. take a second look, but as i said, you cant currently create any person sub-pages. -- MAGNEDETH 03:04, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Offense taken... :( Sorry, I didn't mean to be dense. I couldn't understand how to make it just from the visual aide. Whatever, I'll figure it out myself as I've done for most stuf on Bulbapedia. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 03:52, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
well just look at what i wrote. User:LugiaRocks/Sandbox or User:YOUR NAME / SUB-PAGE NAME. ok? -- MAGNEDETH 03:55, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

New Kirlia pic

I got a new pic for the Kirlia page. Can you put it there? The current one is .jpg, cropped, poor quality and in serious need of replacement generally. Just click on the link.

Image:Kirlia anime.png--Hmdwgf 22:27, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

yikes, that old one was crap. good call. -- MAGNEDETH 23:02, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, it was the work of some deleted user named Kuki who has uploaded many of these low quality, jpg and just generally awful pics. I shall investigate further into the extent of these bad pictures, and mark them to be cleaned up. --Hmdwgf 23:14, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
well, what a horrible user. if you can get more good shots like that to replace the atrocities he brought forth upon us, please, go right ahead. -- MAGNEDETH 23:15, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
OK. And from what I've seen, that user's behavior was pretty atrocious. But I'll see to getting some more pics to replace those "atrocities". --Hmdwgf 23:23, 29 October 2009 (UTC)


On almost every page, I'm getting at least 3 errors (some have 2 or 3 dozen). Is this just my computer acting weird, or is there something with Bulbapedia itself? (This is the only website where I'm getting any errors) Pokemon486 14:16, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

the site is encountering a couple of issues, but we are dealing with them. it is not just you. -- MAGNEDETH 18:21, 30 October 2009

User:Immewnity/Template:Console infobox

If you would kindly take a look at that template and see if it is ready, I would greatly appreciate it.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity was here at 18:26, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

i dont usually comment on templates. it looks ok, but it doesnt really wow me. -- MAGNEDETH 18:34, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
There's really not much to wow about... it's simple. Simple is good.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity was here at 18:38, 30 October 2009
it just seems too simple. doesnt really have the same presence of other templates on the site. -- MAGNEDETH 18:39, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
I based it off of Template:Infobox location--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity was here at 18:57, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
that template is slated to be replaced soon... -- MAGNEDETH 19:09, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Glitch Pokémon

Could there possibly be even more Glitch Pokémon that we don't have articles on? I can see this certain pokémon apparently called ギ►アゴ in this picture: Click here. --Zelda311 19:35, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

there are most likely a ton of glitch Pokemon that we dont have info on, but given glitch Pokemon are far from a concern to this site, its not a big deal. hell, weve got way too many glitch Pokemon as it is and we might start removing some of them. -- MAGNEDETH 19:37, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Ha ha that made my day. I'm assuming you're only taking ones with info on, i.e. this site? But whatever, it isn't that big of a deal. --Zelda311 14:32, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
i dont understand what was funny about my comment. -- MAGNEDETH 18:16, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Maybe it was the way I was reading it, heh. Well have a nice Halloween!--Zelda311 19:11, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
ok then. you enjoy your Halloween as well. -- MAGNEDETH 19:11, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Conflicting edits

I apologize... the second time, I wasn't sure if you were around... my fault. I'll wait... longer... by 10 minutes, perhaps? Once again, sorry... ht14 04:14, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

the first one i was a bit irked. the kid was talking to me, but you didnt even give me a chance to respond. the second one i cant really blame on you, i took forever to respond. however, it did fall into the "user was talking to me" category. im not mad, just give me some time to respond. im fast, but sometimes i like to really think about what im writing, or i just get distracted. -- MAGNEDETH 04:19, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok... just so you know... I'm trying to change and not be such a speed-editor... ht14 04:20, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
i dont mind speed editors. im a speed editor, just try to relax on the talk page front. more notably, when two users are clearly communicating between each other. (be it an admin or not) -- MAGNEDETH 04:21, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
All right. Thanks for the tidbits. ht14 04:22, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Negative and Positive

I know I'm probably annoying you with all of my pokemon page talk and needing you to edit for me but this one is actually pretty important. On the Cherrim species page its forms are called overcast and sunshine across the page although in HeartGold and SoulSilver, the correct names for them have been revealed as the Negative and the Positive form. I need you to change that. BrokenMotor 00:49, 1 November

i will look into this and the proper changes will be made accordingly. -- MAGNEDETH 00:51, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Current Status

I'm just wondering what the current state of the site is. The iPhone application, the page lockdown, etc. Drake Clawfang 06:09, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

theres a discussion on the main page's talk page that will answer your question. -- MAGNEDETH 06:10, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
