Re: My talk page

Hi, MasterKenobi. I've replied on my page, so we can keep the conversation together. This makes it easier to keep track of everything. You can reply there too, if you wish. Also, please write ~~~~ after your comments on talk pages. It automatically puts a link to your userpage, and a timestamp.

Breaking the fourth wall and DP108

Thanks for noticing. I didn't even see your request until after I put it in. I just wrote the synopsis for that episode, but I forgot the fourth wall part until I saw it in the trivia. --rockersk08 00:28, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Sure, thanks for doing that. I love your userpage by the way! -MasterKenobi 00:38, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
That's the first complement I ever got to my userpage, so thanks! I want to avoid getting carried away, so if you want to, send me an e-mail or use the forums if you would like to chat. --rockersk08 00:44, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Anime dex project

We've already got a ton of them written here, if you want to just get them onto the Species pages. MaverickNate 01:32, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I will start on that right away, thanks! -MasterKenobi 02:33, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Make it kanto MaverickNate 18:21, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I found a way to figure it out, thanks though! -MasterKenobi 18:23, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Wait! Bad planning on my part. We need to do it differently. Bulbasaur through Mew need to be Kanto (Gen 1 Pokés) the Gen 2 Pokés need to be Johto, Gen 3 need to be Hoenn and Gen 4 need to be Sinnoh. would you mind fixing them? MaverickNate 18:27, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I think it would make more sense to do it by the episode region they were seen in (Ex. Diamond & Pearl Series= Sinnoh). That's how been done so far and it makes more sense to correspond with the season that they were seen in... Additionally, that is how they are catagorized. -MasterKenobi 18:31, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
But, it seperates all of the templates. Like how Meditite was. Without a consistent option, the idea needs to be changed. All the entries need to be in one table, and this is the only way I could think of to have a consistent color scheme. And, the the middle option now needs to be the Pokémon's name. Sorry for the inconvenience. MaverickNate 18:33, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Actually, the way you were doing it is fine. nevermind then MaverickNate 18:39, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok, we could always change it later. -MasterKenobi 18:41, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
There shouldn't be a need to change it later. Just keep doing what you are doing. ;) MaverickNate 18:44, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Please place this template onto your userpage by putting {{User Award|GoldEevee|May, 2009}} among your userboxes.

- Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:07, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Congrats, you deserve it.--ForceFire 07:11, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Kogoro and Force Fire. It is a very pretty award! -MasterKenobi 16:35, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations on earning it. You were definitely more prepared in starting than I was when I started. I also got an award too. By the way, I saw your Pokédex entry for Gloom from DP031. I wrote the episode synopsis for that, and it never crossed my mind that Gardenia's quote was similar to a Pokédex entry. Good spot. --rockersk08 01:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Lucky you. I wanted that in April :( --αワニノコ 12:53, 25 June 2009 (UTC)


check it out. -- MAGNEDETH 20:39, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes I see that, I will fix those when I do my follow through. -MasterKenobi 21:58, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
follow through? its fine, but just make sure you do it that way is all. -- MAGNEDETH 01:45, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm unsure if you know this or not

but when you put dub titles into links, always make them italic, please. MaverickNate 01:58, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I suspected it had to be that or underlining it. Thanks, you learn something new everday. -MasterKenobi 02:01, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Images you need

If you drop me an e-mail with the images you want uploaded, I'll do it for you until we figure out the problem. MaverickNate 16:57, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

The issue is with the current account creation block on the Bulbawiki network. It seems that until today, you haven't tried to log into the Archives, so the account creation block is blocking the automatic creation of the Archives account. This error will also happen to you on Bulbanews. For now, just ask an admin if they can upload the images for you. When we re-open account creation, or allow admin-approved account creation. Sorry about this, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:18, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk page comments

Sorry to be a stick in the mud, but per the talk page policy, you're not allowed to delete talk page comments. If you would like to remove comments, you can always archive your talk page by moving it to an archive title such as "User talk:MasterKenobi/Archive 1" Just remember to add a link to your archive on your new talk page. Thanks, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:18, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, but I have no idea what you are talking about Kogoro, I haven't been deleting stuff off this page... -MasterKenobi 17:21, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Might have been an accident, but you replaced the welcome template with "Hi, welcome to my talk page just leave a message on the bottom and I will get back to you as soon as possible!". - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:32, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Yea, that was... um.. and accident. Sorry about that. I thought it could be deleted as others have deleted it... I think. -MasterKenobi 17:34, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
If anyone removes it, or other comments (that aren't obviously spam or trolling) please restore it and put {{subst:TPCD}} at the end on their talk page. If their page seems to not have it, they may have archived their talk page, so always check to see if that was the case. No worries about the mistake though, everyone makes some, we're all human ^_^ Well... Except that evil little bot, and its sidekick... - Kogoro | Talk to me - 17:41, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I didn't know the evil bot got a sidekick! Double the trouble! -MasterKenobi 19:49, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

A solution

Go to and see what it says. Keep me posted and we'll work from there. -- evkl (need to talk?) 20:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

"You can now log in to any Bulbagarden wiki without creating a new account; the same username and password will work on Bulbapedia, Bulbanews, and Bulbagarden Archives." I tried logging into the archives after seeing this and it didn't work. -MasterKenobi 20:53, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Our lockdown on account creation may be inhibiting the backend auto-creation. I'll look into it a little more, but once we lift the blanket ban on account creation it should be all fixed...and that'll hopefully be soon-ish. -- evkl (need to talk?) 21:43, 11 June 2009 (UTC)


If a misspelling appears in the wanted pages, feel free to fix it on any pages that link to it, if any are left. However, do NOT redirect the misspelling to the correct spelling. Only common misspellings get redirects, of which the ones you made redirects for were not. Making redirects of random misspellings is probably going to net you a Golden Slowpoke award...--Shiningpikablu252 04:37, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for letting me know. Should I go back and undo those pages then?? -MasterKenobi 17:33, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
That won't be necessary. Misspellings in the current project are taken care of as soon as a sysop who runs through the wanted pages (usually myself) detects them, hence there was nothing linking to them at the time you created those redirects. And those redirects have since been deleted. --Shiningpikablu252 18:14, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

You know...

There is a handy parser function that can change your countdown... so you don't have to. TTEchidna 19:51, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I imagined of one but didn't know it existed. So where does one get this "handy parser function"? Thanks, your a real life saver TTE. -MasterKenobi 21:10, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

About Deoxys

We don't... need to mention the whole meteorites thing. It's like Shaymin. We could mention the whole "boxing and freezing changes its formes too", but that's... mentioned. Throughout the article. Deoxys is pretty well known for its Gen III forme change, and the meteorites are just... overdoing it.

I dunno. We gotta rethink Project Pokédex anyway, so yeah. TTEchidna 20:45, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Yep, I totally agree, I was just fixing up the images as somehow it went to the default Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Deoxys's. -MasterKenobi 00:06, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, the images needed to be redone. The links were off. We need to clean up archives. TTEchidna 22:16, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

May I suggest...

Subcategorizing the books category? I don't want to do it myself because it's your project and I'm not sure what's the right way to do it, but I was thinking of "Handbooks", "Anime novelizations", etc. --electAbuzzzz 21:00, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Yep, I will get right to that, thanks. –MasterKenobi 21:06, 2 July 2009 (UTC)


Yeah, try and refrain from posting images from Serebii. Thanks--RexRacer 21:16, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Yep, I kinda figured that out thanks though. Also, how do you get game images? –MasterKenobi 16:47, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
We are allowed to use images from serebii. Just make sure to credit them. MaverickNate 19:43, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Nate, Kenji-girl said they were fine. Thanks! –MasterKenobi 20:12, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Note to Self

Talk to someone about the oddities of switching between anime and movie number. For example Shaymin is at movie 11 instead of anime, whereas Arceus is at anime which should be correct. We need some consistency here folks. –MasterKenobi 02:24, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

That's on purpose. There's only one Arceus in the anime (and only one Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Mewtwo) - so we write "anime". For the rest we specify the movie. --electAbuzzzz 07:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Wikipdia links

OK, about the Wikipedia links you "fixed" on some VA pages, like Daniel Magon - why did you remove the links to the characters the voiced? Those are real, existing Wikipedia articles. --electAbuzzzz 07:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Just one page was not linked so I thought that was the way it was. I will go back and fix them. Also a couple were linked the wrong way. –MasterKenobi 14:53, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Fixed a some so far. A couple even linked to non-existent wiki pages. –MasterKenobi 15:08, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't know about most articles, but Daniel Magon is an article I created myself and I know I checked every single link before adding. --electAbuzzzz 15:11, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Yep I am slowly making my way around to fix them all. Thanks for checking those links. –MasterKenobi 15:17, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Done. –MasterKenobi 15:33, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
